Today I called in sick.Well, I’m not really sick, but when I woke up to my 4:00AM alarm this morning, I decided to take a day off from work. I didn’t get a good night’s sleep (something that’s been recurring for a month now), and I wanted to sleep in. So I did. Normally I’d worry about my remaining leave credits, but not today. I use my leave credits whenever and however I want to. Today is no exception. After all, it’s only a matter of time until I officially quit.
Today I did some overdue household chores. Just because I didn’t have work, doesn’t mean I’m going to lay in bed all day. I did do that, but only after I’m done with some chores. Unless I’m really sick, I prefer to move around the house and get things done because I just can’t stay put.
Today I watched The Prestige for the nth time. As soon as I’m done with my chores, I browsed through our cable TV, and this was on. I saw this in the local movie theater when it premiered, and I liked it. No matter how many times I’ve seen it on HBO several years later, I love it just the same. It’s one of those films that I don’t get tired of watching even if it meant knowing the lines and scenes by heart.
Today Roan and I had a little squabble. It’s nothing to be worried about, but it had something to do with my migration to the US in the near future. We reached a compromise in the end, and I realized that the secret to a happy marriage is meeting each other halfway. We’re just like any other married couples out there, you know…
Today I received follow-up emails from USCIS.
This means that in two to four weeks, my case should be received by the Department of State for processing. A lot of things has come to light, and I’m not sure I can keep up.
