of course i’m excited. i’ll get to see my family and friends again. and it’s spring in Calgary. good place to escape the sweltering hot summer.
but i’m more stressed right now than i was during exam week. i’m a little bit in a panic that i haven’t touched my luggage that’s been sitting in a corner collecting dust. i dont know where to start with this packing shit. i’ll never get tired of saying how much i hate packing. to think that i’ve been doing a lot of that and will be doing more of it for the next few years, i should’ve already learned to embrace it.
but as you know, i’m the master procrastinator and like to put off things til the last minute. i guess i love the adrenaline rush and excitement of running around like a chicken with her head cut-off. not.
to avoid such unpleasant ordeal, i made a list of things to buy for pasalubong. people have been asking me to buy them pasalubong when i go back to canada. some are requests from my mom’s friends.
also, since my time here is limited, i made a list of things to do for Monday til Friday including where to go on that certain day and what to do or buy. such a tedious task, really.
i’m just glad that my uncles are willing to help me cross some of the things off the list. i almost forgot to include gin premium on the list. good thing uncle gx reminded me and volunteered to get it for my dad. he also thought of some things to get for the family like chippy, boy bawang, ovaltinees, chocnut, the usual..
it’s funny how some of my friends are only finding out about me staying in the Philippines just now. they’ve been messaging me asking me since when have i been here in the Philippines, where i’m staying and what the hell am i doing here. and they’d always be surprised when i tell them that im going back to Canada next week. they’d be in shock and tell me why have i not told them earlier. then i’d be like, “dude, chill. i’m coming back in 2 months.” true story.
anyhow, i’m really not yet ready to leave for Canada just yet. i wish i got to come home to Naga before leaving. or atleast gone to the beach or something. le sigh.
