Last week was a stressful one for me as last week was my first week truly back doing my online course, and the coursework this time around is really heavy, as I do have submissions every week. To top it off, things are getting pretty hectic at work, what with the year beginning to wrap up, and we need to start planning already for next year. As I was so busy, I wasn’t able to feel very balanced as I would push back the things that I know make me feel less insane during insanely hectic times like this. I won’t do that next time!
Last week felt like a strange week, as I’m used to being stressed during the week of Halloween, as I used to be in charge of events in the office. I did have a little bit of stress with a video that I had to compile for the cosplay competition, and because I was a bit overwhelmed with the Digital Marketing Capstone I’m currently taking on Coursera. I could have probably handled myself better emotionally, but wasn’t able to as the week just felt off to me.
I didn’t know that October would fly by this fast. I didn’t expect that at all. It only felt like yesterday that I was writing down my October goals, and now, lo and behold, its the end of October already!
Last week started great, and continued to be great, what with a new exercise schedule in the morning, and cooler weather despite the fact that it now rains for an entire day. However, it really now does feel like the -Ber months have finally arrived, and that the dry season is really over.
I still can’t get over the fact that we are not just in October, but that we are in the last quarter of the year. This week saw me doing a lot of planning for both myself and for work, despite everything I do need to accomplish for work.
To be honest, I’m very fond of the month of October as I do love dressing up/cosplaying for Halloween, and because it means that there are only a few months left until my birthday. However, October also means the start of the last quarter of the year, which also means that there are a lot of plans to be made, and reports to make as well.
Interestingly enough, this weekend has been one of the more “social” weekends I’ve had, which is saying something as weekends like that don’t happen often for me.
I can’t believe that in three weeks, I’ll actually be hitting the 30th week in quarantine. I still had to take things a little bit slow this week, but thankfully, things picked up a lot for me in the second half of the week.
Last week I actually went on a staycation, which, I think came at the perfect timing because of the whirlwind of happenings and emotions that happened right before the staycation happened and right after it.
I really can’t believe that it’s September already. It honestly doesn’t feel like the start of the Christmas season at all, as I’m accustomed to hearing Christmas music being played in the convenience store or on radio stations. This week, although there were some fun highlights, I did feel pretty tired, which is making me way more excited for the staycation I’m planning to take this week.
