Life lately. January had been craaazyy! It started with our church’s yearly prayer and fasting. We dedicated the new year to the Lord and just fill ourselves with His presence. We also had our (kinda late) exchange gift with the VG and prayed for a verse to declare on the person we picked on the day itself(!!). We didn’t know who we will be giving the gifts to so it was kinda exciting!
On the first week of January, I had my eyes checked because I was having a hard time opening them. Turns out I had follicular conjunctivitis. My eyes were not that red and it wasn’t that itchy so I was not expecting a type of sore eyes but apparently, I had sore eyes. It was a blessing in disguise though as I was able to have 5 days off (paid) from work. 😛 I can’t explain the condition clearly so here’s the description grabbed from this site.
Follicular conjunctivitis (Fig 5-5) is seen in a variety of conditions, including inflammation caused by pathogens such as viruses; atypical bacteria; and toxins, including topical medications (glaucoma medications, especially brimonidine, or over-the-counter ophthalmic decongestants). In contrast to papillae, follicles are small, dome-shaped nodules without a prominent central vessel. Accordingly, whereas a papilla clinically appears more red on its surface and more pale at its base, a follicle appears more pale on its surface and more red at its base. Histologically, a lymphoid follicle is situated in the subepithelial region and consists of a germinal center, containing immature, proliferating lymphocytes; and surrounding corona, containing mature lymphocytes and plasma cells. The follicles in follicular conjunctivitis are typically most prominent in the inferior palpebral and forniceal conjunctiva.
At first, I thought 5 days off from work will be more than enough but turns out, its not. haha! I still had many things left to do after my 5 days off. (Procrastination at its finest!)
The family, sans my father, has a new hobby 🙂 We usually bike to MoA or Greenhills on weekends. #HealthyLiving
Our cat had a tumor removed from her. Thankfully it was nothing serious. We spent around 7k for her operation. Moving forward, I’ll allot a portion of my salary for unexpected pet expenses. 7k is still 7k! More than the money, the important thing is that she is doing better now. That’s all that matters 🙂
Had our “Harvard Session” with tita Sandra, Patti, and Ann. We went through the “Truth Project”. I learned a lot during the session. Many wrong mindsets are broken and I have a deeper understanding on the truth about God.
After the “Harvard Session” with tita Sandra and the gang, Ann and me met with our other friends and had a Korean Dinner. The place we went to was as legit as you can get for Korean food. It was gooood! I’m not really a fan of korean food and would not crave for it but the place was an exception.
After almost just a month, I’m on to my new bike. Meet Trixie, my new ride. Say hello to the building behind dubbed as the “national photobomb”.
On Jan 30, we had our leader’s convergence at church. It’s a yearly touch-base with all VG leaders and interns to update everyone with the direction the church is going with regards to discipleship. After that, we went to Greenfields to chill. Apparently, there’s an event by Yamaha and Bamboo is performing. 🙂 It was nice. The songs he sang took me back to my high school days. I just hope that people will listen to the singer more and enjoy the moment rather than just lift their mobile phones up and document it in their crappy screens. 1.) People at the back can’t see what is happening in front. 2.) Its annoying. 3.) They’re blocking the view. Have some manners guys. You won’t even enjoy watching it on a small screen.
Jan 31 – Lambo went to Eastwood for the first time. 🙂
That’s how my January went. Gone just like that. Hope you all had an awesome first month of the year too!
