Alone and thinking...

I'm back to loving lunch spent alone. Bad. I know. Yesterday, some of my officemates clocked out for lunch at 11AM. Bosses are not around so everyone's in a party mood! They're asking me to tag along. Glorietta or SM daw sila. I shook my head. Nevermind, I said. I plan to take my lunch in a leisurely pace, not shove morsels after morsels into my mouth so quickly just so we can stroll pa.

So what I did, I ate at Salad Days. The usual, garden salad (puro dahon araw-araw, para na akong uod sa totoo) with vinaigrette. I ate lunch for an hour. Dahon lang yan. I was happy I spent lunch break alone. No need for me to force myself to converse with someone just because.

Afterwards, I talked to Aaron about his management presentation charts. I realized that I've been teaching powerpoint for the past two weeks now. Aaron's also eating lunch alone. He's at his desk, avoiding someone as well. Hahaha. Kindred spirits. I'm closer to him now than with Lynn's.

I'm kinda drifting...

Been restless and fidgety for days now. Dunno why. Can't think properly... brain's always down.

Kaya yung meme, papa Qroon, sa next post na talaga ok? :) And I will be uploading a post about my first impressions on my fave bloggers. Still checking out first comments kasi.

Gym time... need to re-energize!

ok lang mag-isa. masarap nga kumain magisa eh.

hindi ko lang maimagine kung bakit yung iba hindi magawa yun at pag may nakita silang nagiisa nawiwirdohan sila.

tina said...

At least.. you are enjoying the simple time with yourself. Tama ka rin sa talking "just because"... and eating fast.. and catching up on time.

Food needs to be taken in elegantly once in awhile.. not rushing it out always. :)

Mhmm... focus on some nice things na lang ate... and things that makes life beautiful ahihi :)

there were times naman talaga na gusto natin mapag-isa 'di ba sis? masarap magmuni muni...kaso parang hindi masarap kumain mag-isa wah gana....hirap maglulon, ok lang kung kagaya ng lunch mong dahon...masarap na healthy pa, baka natatakpan lang ang lechon ng lettuce ha? :)
baka anonymous uli...ako toh sis...i'm back!!!

eating alone? di na ako mashadong sanay, now that i have orgmates with me. pero dati talaga, mag-isa lang ako tuwing lunch. I'm glad I'm enjoying the company of the people around me. It's not something i do just because i have no other choice.

pero i agree that sometimes it's good to be by yourself and enjoying your lunch ever so leisurely. minsan, mas ok din pabagalin ang ikot ng mundo diba?

ako din gusto kumain mag-isa kasi kapag in group nakupu sobrang tagal sa canteen kasi daming bumabangka sa kwentuhan. pero minsan oks din maraming kasama kasi nga maaliw ka sa kanya kanyang kwento. siguro there is a time for everything talaga, time to mingle and time to be alone :)

naalala ko nung college, yung pagkain ng salad na puro dahon, sabi nung mga kasamahan ko nung naglunch kami sa isang Amerikanong misyonero.. "naku, akala ata ni ma'am mga baka at kambing ang kakain." hehehehe first time namin maka encounter ng ganung pagkain kaya di namin masyado na enjoy. pero I'm thankful at nalaman ko na may ganung pagkain din pala :) hihihi buti na lang at pasensiyosa yung erkano. nagluto siya ng spaghetti kaso italian style. hehehe

manilenya said...

ganyan din ako kahit hindi sa pagkain ..madalas mas gusto ko ang mag-isa at huwag makihalubilo kaya nung minsan sabi sa kin ng sis ko "hindi ka naman anti-social nyan?" sabi ko hindi no then sabi nya ulet ahh gusto mo lang kausap yung computer?

wala lang parang hirap kasi makihalubilo sa ibang mga tao dito na alam mong may sarili na silang mga bagay na napaguusapan pagkatapos bago lang akong makikipaglapit sa kanila diba?

mousey said...

oks lang magisa kumain kasi nawawala ang gana oh di ba strong points na yun sa diet hahaha...

Ann said...
