Last weekend was kind of fun and sad at the same time. Fun because the hubby and I got to stay at our marital home in Bacoor for the weekend and bond over simple activities. Sad because there was still no power in our house due to the fallen electric post in our street. There are only four houses affected (which means the rest of the village has power already!) and unfortunately, ours is one of them.

We also went to Starbucks twice (thus, the title of this post) because the hubby was studying for a school report. He said he wanted a quiet place to study and thought Starbucks was the perfect choice. When did Starbucks become a quiet place? And to think it’s a mall branch that we visited and people there were all over the place. Oh well, he’s crazy like that. Haha.

Do you follow a certain routine? I do. And I just realized having one has helped me become more productive and organized over the years. But it doesn’t mean I don’t get lazy sometimes because I do. More often than not, though, I get to do my tasks and finished most of them even ahead of time. I used to do a lot of cramming during my college days but I’m a changed woman now. Or so I believe. Haha.
I have a certain routine that I follow during weekdays, which involves many tasks from my current job. I also have a different routine on weekends when I’m a wife more than anything else. Anyway, below are what I think are the benefits of keeping a routine:

Last May, the hubby finally enrolled in graduate school. He’s currently in his first semester taking up Master of Technology (MT) at a state university here in Manila. It was a decision he had been considering for a long time but didn’t make immediately because he still had to prepare himself. When he became fully prepared, both financially and emotionally, he finally did it. And I was so glad he did. He has my full support on this one!
Actually, he needs continuing education to get the promotion he’s long been wanting to get. He already has the approval of the boss, the only thing that keeps him away from it is a master’s degree which is one of the qualifications required for the higher position he’s been eyeing.

Yesterday was terrible. Scratch that, it was scary! Typhoon Glenda (international name: Rammasun) hit Central Luzon (which includes Manila) and Southern Luzon (which includes Bacoor) with its strong and deadly winds. Once again, it made us feel how vulnerable we are to the forces of nature. Trees got uprooted, house roofs flew away, glass walls were shattered, electric posts and billboards fell down, many areas got flooded and hundreds of families got displaced. Thankfully, only several casualties were reported.
Most of us survived typhoon Glenda with minimal to zero damage to our properties, and so we have to be really grateful. The hubby and I were at my PILs’ place yesterday and everything was quite manageable. Power went out in the morning but came back just before dusk. For many areas, power hasn’t been restored yet so we consider ourselves lucky.
