Morning Schedule of a Nine to Fiver

Posted on 25 August 2008 by Liza Mae V.

Another Monday morning creeps up and my 7:00 am alarm on my blackberry beeps then vibrates repeatedly until I tend to its incessent calling.  snooze. beep. vibrate. beep. vibrate. snooze. beep. vibrate. Dismiss.

It is now 7:27am and I drag my feet then body out of bed.  Remnants of yesterday flutter through my head.  I grab my towel and soak in the hot shower, washing away yesterday (or the weekend).

This weekend was eventful:
Friday – Beach volleyball.
Saturday – Bridal Shower.  Long walk and talk on the beach.
Sunday – Swimming indoors.  Family Celebrations.

While I sit and watch BT (Breakfast Television) I put on my toner and lotion my skin.  I decide on what to wear for the working day – a black skirt with a three-quarter length white button down shirt.  I have my breakfast: a piece of naan, cup of soya milk, and leftover lechon.  I put on my make-up and then pack my gym bag.  I run downstairs and put on my walking shoes then I am out the door.  Ohhh it is chilly this morning so I run back inside and grab a sweater.  You never know with this Toronto weather.  So finally I am out the door and walking to the bus stop.

From the distance I see 2 buses pass.  *damn it*  Then I walk faster hoping another would come as quickly and as hoped – I see one coming.  *sigh* of relief.  I step on the bus and put on my iPod.  I get to Kennedy Station and I weave in and out of the crowd to transfer on the Subway.  I sit and I pull out my current read (Kite Runner) and emerge myself in my book and music.

I realize this entry really has no point but I’ll post it anyways.  I didn’t even end it. lol.  But I am now here at work …

Time save me.

words worth reading

Posted on 11 March 2007 by Liza Mae V.

So I got a call from a comforting voice earlier and he made me aware that we are going on a ‘triple’ date … movies at 8 … be ready.

I feel like the days of drunk clubbing nights have gone and it is time to settle down.  The first words I uttered this morning were … “I’m content … I’m happy!”  This feeling is unfathomable.  As I smiled to myself in disbelief of what I was feeling, I sunk myself in my sheets and started reading “Everyone Worth Knowing” by Lauren Weisberger, a book I could barely put down.  I told myself last week that I should start to read again because working with people in retail didn’t exactly keep my sense of speech up to par.  So earlier in the week, I dragged myself to the local Chapters and browsed the different sections with a list in my pocket of my friend’s favorite books listed on their myspace book section.  So I managed to get a career related book with interviewing questions and answers, “Everyone Worth Knowing”, and “I Know This Much is True” by Wally Lamb.  So this week I found myself, watching less of MTV reality TV shows, and enjoying a good book.  So if anyone has recommends … feel free to comment.

I feel a sense of accomplishment because I actually acted on what I wanted to do, instead of putting it off.  YAY LIZA!!
