How can October be considered as "mid-year"? Well, it happens to the best of us. Your birth month just ended with nothing to look forward to until Christmas, add to that the stress from your job and there you have it. Your mid-year slump.
I had the same sentiments last year. Spent my birthday eve on duty, endorsing a case on my actual birthday, killer rotations, and just being generally exhausted from it all. Maybe birthdays start to lose their meanings when you get older. You only remember your birthday is coming up just a week before the big day, losing yourself in work on your birthday itself, and getting only a few greetings from well-meaning friends and family who actually remember. (Since when have I turned into a birthday grinch?) I can't really blame anyone. Everyone I know is so immersed in their personal lives (work, family, businesses, etc) that they can't be bothered to know what's going on with others. I am guilty of that.
I'm having a serious case of wanderlust lately (again). But this time, I have my internship group mates to wanderlust with me! Hihi. We're planning on taking a vacation soon. A few of us are dreaming of Bali, Indonesia...
Or perhaps Cambodia...
But maybe we'll just have to take a reality check and go somewhere local, like Davao or Palawan.
Any suggestions for must-see places around the Philippines? :)
