Conflict of Schedule

Today is our office’s team building… We shall hold it in Biniktikan, Subic, Olongapo City… They said it’s a cool place, however, the beach is 10-15 minutes drive from the place.

Somehow, I am not quite in a traveling mood, and I am not so enthusiastic with this trip. I’m an outdoor person, indeed, but I think this trip is sort of out of timing. A lot of things should have been done aside from going to Subic. Let me list some:

a. I should be out shopping. It’s less than 20 days before Christmas and I have not yet shopped for gift for my 6 godchildren, my lady, my parents, and other relatives…
b. My lady is supposed to visit the doctor tomorrow, Saturday…
c. I am supposed to have my blood chemistry checked…
d. I am supposed to meet my lady’s cousin from the States for the very first time…
e. I am supposed to go with my mother and help her with her own Christmas shopping…
f. Our Ateneo Basketball Team 4F98 (yes, finally, Team 4F98 is re-formed) is supposed to practice this weekend…
g. I have to shop for bagoong (shrimp paste) this weekend because the demand is increasing (yes, people buy shrimp paste from me… Orders, anyone? Just message me in the tag board)…
h. I am supposed to take Buddy, my red Toyota Corolla XL 1991, to the auto shop. He is scheduled for a tune-up/change oil.

That and many other things…

And one other thing… I was also planning to decorate my room fit for the holidays… I was supposed to buy Styrofoam to make it look like I have snow in my room…

Another reason for my non-enthusiasm towards the team building activity is (I know this is quite a bit mushy, but here goes...) because my lady isn't coming... It seems that I can't seem to enjoy myself that much anymore when my lady is not with me. We both love the beach so much... the warm waters, the soothing sound of the waves crashing into the sand, the coconut trees swaying with the wind, the sound of vultures waiting for us to drown (no, not that morbid part...)... in short, we loved everything about the beach. And knowing this, I think about her everytime I go to the beach... Awwwwwww... I hate this...

Oh well. Since this is a required activity, I have no other choice but to go to the teambuilding. I just hope this is a fun-filled, productive, eventful activity. Para sulit…

I'm just thinking that the bond among us teammates will be strengthened after this activity... Good luck to team MPO... hurrah!!!!
