Ok I’m 2 weeks late.
I hate to admit it but yes, September marks the start of the “ber” months and they usually seem faster than most months. Why? Because malapit na Christmas!
Believe it or not, last year before September ended, I was already done with Christmas shopping for our wedding ninongs and ninangs. I didn’t know it was common to give them gifts every year, I thought before and during our wedding lang. It seems to be a big deal in my husband’s family … I later on discovered that it’s common with Chinese families. Oh well! Or maybe hindi lang talaga kasi ma-gift ang parents ko… hmmm
I’m supposed to just be chilling and relaxing this month, but it’s kinda action packed haha 1) it’s my Kuya’s birthday (meh but it means mine/ours is coming up too), 2) we have a staycation planned (we got those hotel membership cards last year for our friends’ wedding so we’ll get a free room, but now we’ll use the 50% off coupon) because I just want to swim in some other pool not ours haha (sana no more bagyos) 3) I have my last LAT as in lymphocyte antibody test which will determine if I’m done with my blood treatment or if I need more blood infusions and lastly, 4) I’m still on that accounting issue (grrr 😲)
So… September. Bring it on! It’s the peak of monsoon season here in the Philippines, and it’s getting colder in the other parts of the globe … like my dear 🇮🇸 Iceland! A good friend of mine, okay, the first guy I dated in high school, posted several photos of him and his wife in Iceland last week. I got so excited so messaged him asking if they’re aurora hunting. Towards the end of last week, CMF told me that there was a really strong solar flare – so strong that it temporarily damaged some GPS sattelites. But for us geeks, that means massive and crazy northern and southern lights show! One of our ninongs and ninangs also posted that they were in Helsinki, so I told my cousin about it but she said her folks were already en route back to our EU home base 🇩🇪 (Stuttgart, Germany).
The aurora borealis or common called Northern Lights are so … indescribable. Watching them put me in such surreal and magical state … I would love to see them again sometime. And don’t believe how it was portrayed in that local movie of Piolo. I didn’t see the movie, just the trailers but it could have been really much better. Wait, sorry, this became a northern lights post tuloy ulit!
So, back to September!!! Sh!t. Almost half the month has passed. I’m both terrified and excited. Also, soy un poco triste. Porque mis ultimas dias en el gym are up. I’ll soon be back to my hormone injecting self in a few days. They’re tough. I’m used to it but it’s not my favorite. Sacrifice!!!
I’m gonna be bored and impatient again. I have my Paint By Numbers ready (I have a half way done project…), a couple of ebooks (free lol) and a movie/series list. Ok, there’s nothing on series, just movies. But soon, The Walking Dead will be back.. oh wait, Riverdale too and Jane The Virgin!! Ok, soy feliz otra vez!
It’s gonna be ok, September. I will be patient. I will be chill. I will be calm.
