I see my friend again

Yesterday, Pramod arrived in Bauang. He is one of my foreign friends. He's a good looking Nepalese.

Three years ago, i went to Fiji Islands for training in preparation for my work here. Initially, i lived in a big place alone. Imagine the silence and the freaky feeling of being in a foreign place. Then Pramod, who just came from China for training as well, arrived in Fiji and we were housemates for three months. He's a good friend. We had no choice but to have each other as company. We'd sneak to McDonald's and tell countless stories during dinner (over my less than sumptuous cooking:-)). Initially, i was afraid of him. Times were wasted and i was so homesick. He thought i was afraid of him and said i only became friendly when i knew he had a girlfriend. Haha. But that's not true. I really suck at first meetings.

Now, i'm so disappointed that i did not know about blogs yet that time. It could have been very useful. I wrote journals in notebooks and now i don't know where they are anymore.

I talked to God earlier. I was just sorry that sometimes i think of my boyfriend more often than i pray. It's sad. I pray that the Holy Spirit will rekindle the fire in me. I wanna be used by God for his purpose.

Being left behind

You know that feeling, when somebody leaves and you are left behind. I hate it. Homer spent a week here in La Union, Therefore, we kept seeing each other and this morning he left for Luna again. I don't know but i feel better when i'm the one going back home while leaving someone behind. I feel terrible.

We'll see each other maybe earliest August, on his birthday. That's way too far. Sigh.

Getting Old

My third year anniversary at work is coming. My work contract will end this July.

I really love my work. I learned a lot of new things and now i'm good at a lot of them. Homer usually calls me a nerd because of all this computer stuff and yeah maybe i'm a nerd. I like organizing the flow of software code. for loops, if statements, while loops, switches.

It is such a delight when you see that your program works.

I also go through hell managing. There are times i pray for God to shower everyone with initiative so that i don't have to think anymore.:-)

Of course, what i like most is that i've met friends. Throughout the course of my work, i had contact with people of all races and had a chance to experience other cultures. Anyway, here's a shot with my officemates.
