Yes, it has been a while since I last posted something. From the beginning of this year, I’ve been *so* busy that whenever I promised myself to post an entry, I would find myself exhausted and wanting sleep instead. I only got to write something now because I’m currently in Cebu and I technically have 3 days of no work in preparation for what my job has in store for me. I feel like I have saved enough updates already to finally share this with anyone reading.

My life has been more interesting this 2017. Last December, Gelo gave me a puppy for Christmas and we decided to call her Gypsy. I don’t know, I fancied the name at the time and it just matched my boho side. I was even planning to spell it as “Gypsea” but then I thought it was kinda too much. She’s a lean-type Pomeranian who likes kisses and kids. Needless to say, I’m happy we chose to get a dog! A cat wouldn’t be a bad idea either but we figured that getting a dog would make us more energetic and positive and motivated to get out of the house now. It’s been quite effective so far.

My Road to Getting That Driver’s License

Ticked off the bucket list: Learning how to drive! It didn’t occur to me at first that I would actually push through with the plan of learning a new skill this year− let alone run errands just to get me a driver’s license. More than a month has passed since I processed my student permit and I feel that this would be a good timing to write something about my experience.

First, I’m still amazed up to now how lucky I am to get a car without having to pay for the whole thing. My dad gave me a Chevrolet Cruze as a late birthday gift. 🙂
I still have to shoulder some of the expenses though because according to my mother, that would make me feel more responsible while driving because I’ll know that a bit of the car’s price came from my own pocket. Can’t argue with that!

My student permit

It was not a good choice to get a car before actually knowing how to drive, but I made sure that before anything else,

I applied first for a student permit.
For those who don’t know what it’s for, a student permit lets you drive around under a professional’s supervision (like a permit to be a.. student). It’s like a ticket granting you the right to be taught how to drive. You also have to have a 30-day old permit before you can get that non-professional driver’s license, so it’s very important to have this as soon as you can. It lessens your wait time, at least.

I’m gonna come clean: I loooove new items. Every weekend there has to be something new. It’s a bit materialistic (okay, not a bit), but this is how I de-stress most of the time. I’m just so happy with the new stuff that I have that I want to share them with all of you.
