Be My Valentine

12715709_10206058414121814_4761969479007336347_nWell, I can’t think of a better title for this post. Since I don’t date, I’m not seeing anyone, I’m basically looking for someone to be my valentine!

Okay, not really that desperate. My Valentine is my daughter Heaven whom I adore!!!

I am feeling way better since my last blog post. However, my colds are still bothering me. I still can’t breathe properly.

Sick

knee_pain

I need something like this…

I’m so sick. I recently caught colds and the timing could not be worse. I will be performing 2 dances today at my alumni homecoming event.

For the last 2 weeks, the rigorous training for the two dances took its toll on my health. Now, I will be dancing with a runny nose and a dry cough. Ugh. Don’t forget to add that I’m worried I pulled a hamstring last night during rehearsals!

After dancing the first dance for a few times, I felt a twinge on my left knee. After the final practice for the second dance, it became more prominenet. By the the time I got home, it has spread down to my calves. When I woke up this morning, it now includes my thigh.

Maybe this is just muscle sprain. I don’t know. I just placed some mentholated ointment over it and still it won’t go away. 😦 What will I do now? The dance is this evening!!!

Although I drank medicine, my colds gave no sign of letting up. I will look ugly. I just know it. My costume is also not yet done. I have to sew on some parts of it this morning but I have work!!!

Sigh.

Ok, enough of this. I have to think positive.

Everything will be alright. Everything will go as God wills it. I will be fine.

To myself and to everyone out there, break a leg!!!

 

The Year of the Monkey

2016 is known as the year of the Monkey. To a person born in the year of the Horse, I wonder what’s in store for me.

So I went online and found this on horoscope.com:

In the Year of the Fire Monkey, February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017, Horse natives will be especially forceful and inventive. The March 8 Eclipse is your power day for new beginnings or a commitment to build a better future.

Almost immediately after this, Horse will be challenged to be patient and mature when facing delays or disappointments over which you have little control. Fire Monkey helps control your temper and impatience.

If you persevere and refuse to quit, things will open up in a big way by September 1. Expect the last quarter of the year to be especially exciting and rewarding.

This is quite appropriate! I have been feeling impatient lately. This was due to the fact that my salary has been delayed and I seem to have not progressed in my career at all!

Even the thought of waiting and persevering until September 1st seem to be daunting.

Dating? This can be a lucky year for Horse… if you are cautious. Fire can make you impulsive. Single Horses may choose lust over good sense. Think carefully before moving forward with someone you don’t know well.

Good prospects for love can be found in sociable, physical activities like sports, games, and dancing.

Horses in established relationships can revitalize that old spark through vigorous activity of any sort, in and out of the bedroom!

The days before the Full Moon of July, August, or September are luckiest for a romantic holiday or to take a relationship to the next level.

In terms of love, well, it’s quite vague. I actually have new friends because of this app I downloaded called ePenpal. It totally took a lot of guts to become friends with people I don’t know from places far away from me, however, I did find a few gems whom I consider friends now. Even if we won’t meet ever, I’m glad to be friends with them.

So far, I have been immeresed in my dancing recently but since I dance with my high school batchmates (I went to an all-girls Catholic school), that prediction is a bust.

There’s tremendous potential for fun in the year ahead. Meet up regularly with good friends. You’ll shine planning events to bring people together.

The New Moons on February 8, June 4, and September 30 are particularly lucky for social networking of any sort.

Highly politicized environments, including social media, are magnified in Monkey years. Fire energy can make you especially self-centered and sure of yourself. Be willing to let others have their say.

It’s a lucky year for travel and expanding your horizons. You’ll find great satisfaction and friendship in shared activities such as hiking, yoga, or visiting the gym.

Aah, I need to do this. I have been remiss in my friendships. My bestfriend, Jen, recently gave birth so I’m kind of letting her enjoy all the perks of motherhood. My other bestfriend Gracielle is busy with her club activities while Mia, is also busy with her family life.

Sigh, I want to see them but since I’m temporarily in a rut with my finances, I hardly have time to go out and simply hang out. I do miss them terribly, though.
