I am encouraging my aunt who has a gift of gab to try to become a real estate agent. With real estate, particularly condominium and town houses, in boom in the country right now, she can use her gift in earning large sums of commission for her and her family. And I know that she can do it. It's a breeze for her to talk to anybody and even in front of a crowd!
So I am helping her out specifically with finding a cheap local business card printer for her new cards. She is excited because she can picture herself closing a deal already. She managed to attend two agent orientations from two different real estate property developers. She also has her stuff ready for convincing prospective buyers.
I can't wait to see my aunt become a successful real estate agent!
I swear I've been feeling very exhausted the past couple of days now. I think I've worked myself hard when I should be recuperating from the flu that made me sick for three weeks. I was still weak from the aches and pains in my joints but since I need to come up with a larger income this month, I worked right away even when I should be taking it slow.
As a result, this mind-numbing exhaustion!
I ought to take it slow this weekend, I know. But it's already Sunday and I am still working doubly hard as I did the past week. Bills need to be paid, you know.
I remember that night I heard a buffet clarinet being played in the office. I thought I was hearing things. Who would play such an instrument inside the executive offices in the middle of the night? I was there for an overnight work and I was taking a break for a midnight snack.
So I traced where the sound was coming from and do you know what I found out? The big boss of the company was the one playing the clarinet! I was amazed when I saw him. Who would have thought that the grumpy boss could actually play an acid jazz song?
He invited me to watch him play another song then we got to discuss some jazz songs that we both know and like.
After I am done with this task to buy crinkle taffeta for my aunt's business, I am going to just relax and sleep some more. This weekend, I really plan to get my strength back. I have been weak from fever and dizziness of more than week and since I have so many things to do this coming work week, I need to get back on my feet and be strong.
I don't like going for medical check-ups. Whenever I feel weak, my number one solution to it is to sleep some more because I know it's one thing that I lack every single day.
By June of this year would have marked our 19 years of friendship. I remember the first time I saw your name written on the same paper where my name and those of others who passed the entrance exams in Bachelor of Science in Commerce. I was even laughing because of your last name. We have the same set of first names and it amused me so much because it was the first time I saw someone with the same name as me. Little did I know that we would become the best of friends just a couple of months after.
We became such great friends. You were the twin sister that I never had. I was in awe of you and I was so grateful to have found a friend who was so much like me in so many ways. But, I guess, our friendship was not meant to last. You were not meant to stay as my friend for the rest of my life. Things happened and we were not friends all of a sudden. It hurt me so much and it was and will be one of the greatest regrets of my life.
I am reminiscing the good old times because today is your 36th birthday.
Happy birthday tukayo!
Even if we are no longer friends, I still consider you my twin. And I still pray for all the best for you and your family.
