I didn’t do any outdoorsy trip or get drunk during Spring break.
I work. Yes, there’s no break when you’re working in an after-school program job-related (unless you requested some days off). I’m still new to this job and I definitely love my job. I get to work with kids which were my goal in becoming a teacher someday. So, as my dad would say, “You’re on the right path, Anak. Keep doing what you supposed to do and don’t give up.” Anak in Tagalog means ‘child’. I didn’t do what I wanted to do during Spring Break, however, it’s good for me. I get to save my money! Saving money instead of wasting on drinks, gas, and a place to stay somewhere out of the valley.
It was hard not to spend $$$…
But some points, I had to for a good reason. Basically, from Monday to Friday, I was doing good. I spent on food mostly and other important things. My dear friend decided to drop by visiting and staying for one night before she heads for the north. Luckily, I got a day off on Friday which was a perfect timing. We grabbed sushi in Glendale. I have to say, that sushi place ain’t bad and they have good happy hours. After that, we decided to stay around a little bit before heading back to the apartment. We stopped by to get coffee and chat more in a cute neighborhood that we didn’t know Burbank/Glendale have. It was very simple and have some shops close by. It reminds me of Belmont Shore area where they have cute shops and restaurants. But this one, more old/vintage feeling to me. When the traffic settles down, we went back to the apartment. We played a card game with my roommate and blockade game with drinks. It was LIT.
I was supposed to finish this post on Friday night, but I didn’t have time. The next morning, I had to go to my parents’ house to help them out with filling the water filter and recycling. After that, drive my sister around in LA to pick up food for Chloe’s birthday celebration. It was nice spending time with my family especially when we all alone. We updated each other with news and random things going on in our lives. Be sure to spend time with your family the most because that kind of quality time is rare for most people like me.
Even though I don’t have time enough to myself or for my family or friends, I will make sure I do. So, vacation mode: off until I actually request a week off or so.
Hope your Spring break went well! Catch a glimpse of Haya later.
