My twin M has declared today Ida Deserves Appreciation Day! She’s so sweet! She made a poem and a photo collage for me and everything! Check out her blog!
Of course, I feel a bit guilty taking the spotlight because today is my dad’s birthday. But it is also, in fact, my 1st anniversary in the company I’m working for/in/at now. So it’s not like I’m making up a “holiday” for no reason.
Ah, one year. The first anniversary is always the most significant. Because you know that if it’s a wrong fit, it wouldn’t ever last a year. But if you get past one year, the rest of the years/months will just mesh into a long/short period of time until you lose count.
I also received a card from the management today. They greeted me a happy anniversary, too. I guess it is a big deal. Perhaps it’s because a lot of employees don’t last a year here. Or in most companies. Or, I don’t know. Whatever the reason, first anniversaries are important. Or, I’m happy that my first anniversary here feels important. I got a card and my friend wrote a poem for me. Hooray!
Later, I will celebrate my dad’s birthday. And Ate M’s birthday. And then I will meet with my friend D on account of it’s one of her last days in Manila. She’s going to the U.S. for work soon. And then on Saturday, I will meet with my friend P who is also going abroad for work. In Australia, in her case. And then there’s a party for all my relatives on Sunday because my dad just turned 60! 😀 This day has a lot going on, doesn’t it?
