Finding A New Home




And when the day arrives I'll become the sky 
and I'll become the sea 
and the sea will come to kiss me for I am going home.
~ Trent Reznor


The past days were manic days for me. Half of last week were spent meeting with different vendors for the new call center that I will be joining/ managing. It was the first time to be working closely with my new boss and so far it was fun. Last weekend I had to hurriedly prepare for my trip. As I have mentioned, I will be moving to a new city where the new call center will be built. Just about 30 minutes away by plane and I guess 5-7 hours by land, depending on the route. We took the land trip coming here and this is one of the first few photos I took.

So I am here now, in my so called new home. It was a bit hard finding for a place, and I was so ready to give up and was decided to just stay in the hotel forever. Ha! But well, today I found a nice house within a subdivision and it is well guarded. It is a two bedroom house, with a garden, garage and a garden! Yes, I have to type it twice for emphasis. I am just so happy to have a garden, as that is one place I love spending time with. Though it cost me a lot because I had to pay 2 months advance and 2 months deposit (and it is quite pricey than I expected) I'd say I'm happy to have found it.

And now that I have found a place and will finally be able to move there from the hotel, reality has slowly sunk in. I will miss my family and I will miss the IT Guy. Soon Mom and IT Guy will go back to Cebu and I'm just hoping work will be more than enough to preoccupy me. 

I think I just typed a chapter of a book. I will try to write more about this new place and my new life as I get to settle slowly. I wish you all a happy mid-week!

Happy not so Wordless Wednesday everyone!

P.S. Happy birthday Papa! I miss you!

I hope the new place works out well for you. I've moved around quite a bit, and I actually start fidgeting when I feel like I've lived in one place too long. An occasional change of environment is a good thing. I'm sure you'll make the most of this new opportunity :-)

-MAXX-
