It's Friday night and I vowed not to touch anything related to work. I told myself I'm just gonna relax and let time pass tonight. No worries about lesson plans, grades, reports. And that's excatly what I'm doing now.

But wait, let me just say something about work. I love it so much and I think it loves me back, because I see how I'm growing everyday because of what I do. My students affirm that. Of course there are bad days, sometimes they're often. Yet it is so fulfilling that I know I have really found my niche in this crazy universe. Teaching is one thing I will never give up. Cliche but true, it brings out the best in me, and I wish I were able to write down every thought that comes to me right when I'm experiencing it. The joys of it. The frustrations. Now let me digress and stick to tonight's plan.

So after Kulas picked me up from school, we decided that it's going to be chickenjoy for my dinner tonight since he had to go with mommy and papa to a wake. It turned out they couldn't go so Kulas and I headed to Katipunan and signed up at a video place and rented a couple of titles. We walked to Starbucks after.

It was nice. Walking with him, coffee in hand, amidst the din of college kids. Across us, somebody was flying a kite at the Ateneo football field. We remembered how much we loved flying a kite together. We'll do it again soon.

Watched Under the Tuscan Sun. And because I'm lazy, I won't write down my thoughts about the film except for it made me happy and hopeful and trusting...

Kulas and I have been married for eight months now. Can you believe that? It hasn't been rosy. We're still adjusting. We've found ourselves on the edge and I'm glad we're still here...
