I’m back from a short hiatus. I may have been away from the “limelight” for a couple of days (hmmm…to be more accurate, I was away for 13 days) but I made sure that there will be a lot of entries to look forward to with my comeback.
My ever-reliable pen and notebook was my companion to keep me in touch with myself during those days that I was missing online and through text. I kinda found it difficult to write again and had to practice my handwriting so I can read it myself. I welcomed the idea of having to write down my thoughts again – literally. It was a breather for me.
So many things have happened during those days that I was away, but definitely you’ll be reading about it by this weekend.
Of course, I’m now here to answer the perennial question, “Where was I during those days that I wasn’t around?”
I had to contend with some personal issues and made sure that I have enough time and energy to face all of them. It was tough but still I’m alive and kicking.
There was also the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company I had to deal with. I’ve been having problems with my DSL connection since the start of September regarding my very slow internet bandwidth. And then one day, I woke up only to realize that my phone’s dial tone vanished into thin air without any warning. I was able to tolerate the DSL connection problem since it started but hearing nothing from my phone threw me into the pits! It’s not because I make telebabad all the time (I hate the idea of talking over the phone for hours!), but because that phone line is the lifeblood of my family. And most of my father’s personal and other business transactions are done through that phone line! I couldn’t help but to again become the irate customer who demanded for the supervisor to have everything resolved ASAP! That did it – so now, I’m back online! 😀
Tomorrow’s the start of a brand new month – my birthday month. And now I’m starting to wonder what it would be like to be 29 real soon.
To the people who missed me or otherwise just wanted to know where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing, I’m so touched by your concern. People like you are one of the reasons why I have a smile on my face despite the not-so-pleasant things in my life right now 🙂 Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 😀
And now, I need to take a dose of cough syrup to get rid of this pesky cough! I’m sick again 😦
