a sunday in my life

Sunday, May 26, 2019

i woke up at around eight and i counted the number of hours i was asleep. guess what, i had more or less, nine hours! oops, i kinda overslept, but i am so proud of myself for getting more sleep now.

and okay, i know this is never a good way to start my morning, but the first thing i did after that was grabbed my phone and watched two youtube videos. for the past few days, i have started the habit of not bringing my phone into bed, but last night, i lied down in bed after bath to watch some youtube videos, but then fell asleep unintentionally and i wasn’t able to keep my phone away from me, so yep.

after intentionally watching those videos, i got up from bed, grabbed my towel, headed to the kitchen and washed my mouth. i greeted my mom while she was getting breakfast because she was preparing for work. yep, on a sunday.

i then went inside the bathroom to take a bath. i was feeling a little stinky because i washed my hair with some natural coconut oil yesterday. i didn’t put shampoo nor a conditioner. thus, i felt like the oil was too much when i woke up and i badly needed to wash them off, so i did. i spent a little longer than usual in the shower, washed my hair with a shampoo, put on some hair conditioner, cleansed my face and applied some exfoliating body wash on my whole body.

i then let the towel absorb some of the water from my hair and let it air dry after. i did my quick & simple skin care routine and then took breakfast with my cousin. we had a glass of milk, bread, and some boiled bananas.

after refueling my stomach, i hang my laundry from yesterday under the sun to let them dry. then, i swept the floor and quickly looked after the tyangge. i then grabbed my laptop and started with my weekly reset routine on my digital stuff.

i planned to wash the bed sheets and the curtains that i took off from yesterday, but i don’t feel like doing it 'cos my mind says, “laundries are for saturdays, not for sundays,” (or perhaps that was just the monkey inside my head telling me to procrastinate), so okay. i need to better my time management to make sure that i get all laundries done on saturdays.

have i told you that sunday lunches at home are my favorite? yep! i really love sunday lunches because i get to have them with the whole family and the food in the table are a little extra.

after lunch, i again spent some time in front of my laptop, while overhearing some conversation from my brother and his friends. nope, i am not eavesdropping. it's just that my room is too near to their tambayan and there's no way i can unhear them when i'm here. anyway, they were talking how back-to-school is getting so near again, and they were kinda making fun, practicing how they would introduce themselves to the class, if ever, in such a comical way.

i spent the rest of the afternoon just lazing around and looking after the tyannge. i had an afternoon nap for an hour and it rained. i was supposed to go to church with my cousin but it got cancelled because of the rain. church is not something we should cancel but i'm sorry about that. also, to be honest, i am really not a church goer, because part of me doesn't believe in my religion's practices, but that's a story for another time.


we then had some banana cue that my grandma cooked for merienda. after that, i watched more youtube videos and covered my books, then more youtube videos.


i've been feeling really great since the time i've been away from social media, and admittedly, i don't feel like going back. i realized how superficial the connections i had with some people in there. some might probably have just talked to me because they saw me posted something and they were bored, so they took it as an opportunity to open a topic. i am not saying that this is absolutely true, but it could be. nope, i don't mean it any bad way, okay? right now, i am certain that when people message me, i know that they are being intentional, or at least that's how i think it is. and to be honest, i've only talked to a very few people virtually for about two weeks now. i swear, i can count them by my fingers in one hand, and these are the ones who really matter to me.


i had dinner with the whole family and my mom. i'm happy she was able to arrive in time for our dinner because these days, we seldom share a meal with her. she has been too busy with work, and that's one of the things that we often argue about, but i'm trying my best to help her manage her time so she could spend a day with us at least in a week, but before i can completely do that, i need to better mine first. it's a process and i hope we'll get there.


overall, it was such a gratifying sunday. i'm thankful.
