Today

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.

How has your day been thus far?

  • Wow exciting news about your immigration status! You know, it’s okay to take a break once in a while. At least, you still got some stuff done!
    I haven’t seen that movie but it sounds interesting..hmm maybe next movie night :O

    • Thanks, Jules! I’m partly excited and partly anxious about everything. There’s so much to do, and I don’t even know where to start!
      Ah, it’s really nice! Another one I’d recommend (if you haven’t seen it yet) is Now You See Me starring Jessie Eisenberg, Isla Fischer, Morgan Freeman, and Mark Ruffalo among others. These are my kind of movies!
