[March, 2010] When It Rains, It Pours

Such a loaded month it's been. From work-related activities to leisure, March surely drained my energy. Much of the spontaneity came from work. This month, we had a lot of activities and events that once again put me to test.

Starting off with our forum on Earthquake Risk Reduction and Disaster Preparedness where we had Director Renato Solidum of Phivolcs as our main speaker alongside Ramon Santiago, MMDA public safety consultant and Martin Aguda, ABS-CBN's safety officer. The forum focused on worst case scenarios that could strike Metro Manila and what could be done about them. It was a very informational forum. It even featured a discussion about a 72-hour emergency kit that we could use for our own preparedness measures.

Aside from the forum, we also had a two-day First Aid and Basic Life Support training under the supervision of the Philippine National Red Cross, Rizal Chapter. In this training, we were taught about CPR and first aid management that we could use in times of emergencies. During the training, it felt like we went back to our college days again, taking exams, listening to lectures and talking about how we did after every exam. Really a fun activity and bonding time as well for us.

We also joined a movement launching called "Gawin Ang Tama," a movement that advocates doing the right thing all the time. We participated in a walk held at the Bonifacio Global City.

Aside from these activities, this was also the month when I got to have a lot of freebies from the Internet. First up, I got a free tour at the Lopez Museum where I got to see a lot of nice art pieces and the huge library the Lopezes got just at the lobby of our building. I got that via a Twitter promo. Second, I won two free tickets to an advance screening of "Clash of the Titans" that I got from Fruit Magic's Summer Promo held via Facebook. Isn't fun winning freebies just by answering questions on the Internet? Haha! Lucky me! I really love social media. LOL

A surprise call from an employer also came my way this month. It was from Businessworld. It was an offer to take their exam for reporters. I was really determined to take that but when most people I've consulted said "no", I refused it. Besides, I really don't know what I want up to this moment. There are times I feel so happy about what I am doing at work and then there are times when I feel the opposite. Oh well, the complexity of being me. Haha! But I don't see myself doing nothing at all. It will definitely bore me to death! Kidding. For now, I just want to enjoy life and seize the day.

Anyway, so I guess that's about it for now. More to tell next time. It's already 1:52 AM and I just got home from Glorietta and tomorrow, we'll go to Sta. Cruz so I better be sleeping.

Spend the holy week right. Reflect. :)
