#2 Small Victories. Still enumerating the things I’m thankful for to shoo away bad vibes. (It’s actually working.)The second for this week is about my two mini-victories. I’m equally proud of both of them.
P&G Consumer is Boss Game. February 11, 2012. I joined this game P&G hosted last Saturday. (Yes, by all means laugh at my face. I was ecstatic. Haha.) The game was like a strategy game where you had many options for each phase and each option leads to the next set of options and so on. It was very interesting and surprisingly fun. I had a great team: Lea, Anj, Pao and John. We had to present for 2 minutes explaining why we chose the strategies, I think we did a pretty good job. I prefer to think it was concise. Haha. I was pleasantly surprised when they announced we won third (!!!) which meant P5000 gift certificate for Ayala Malls = P1000 gift certificate for me!!! The best things in life are free. Happiness.
SOM Games: Bataille. February 14, 2012. And this is how I ended up spending my Valentines – with a lot of intense girl action. I wasn’t supposed to play that day but just so we wouldn’t default, I played anyway. You can observe that three of us were wearing skirts. This is how we roll. Again, surprisingly, we won. The game was intense, I didn’t cause the team to lose (unexpectedly because I suck at sports) and I walked away from that three rounds of intense girl fights with no wounds and sandals still intact. Happiness.
I’ve been jumping from the tops of buildings. For the thrill of the fall. Ignoring sound advice.
P.S. In the midst of all my frustrations and bitterness (I know I could be very annoying when I spiral into this ranting and blabbering and overthinking and jealous me), my friend Lea just said: Tiwala lang yan. And I suddenly realized that I forgot to just trust that everything will be fine. It’s actually one of those things I’ve always strongly believed in but somehow I lost sight of it. Chos. But really, thanks for that reminder Bb. Pilipinas 2013. So now everytime I get frustrated or bitter or anything, I just remind myself: Tiwala lang yan.
With every single word I withhold. With every single word you say. Again.
