Nostalgia on the Second Month Part One

>> Saturday, January 27, 2007

It was bound to happen. The sleepless nights, stressful work days, irritability, longingness, regret and wonderment--it can all be summed up in one word: menstruation.

Got you there! Seriously, it's homesickness. I admit it. Today I feel homesick.

Two months. The fun's over. I've exhausted all there is to see in my guide book and tourist mode just doesn't work anymore. For the past few weeks I started to feel more and more local each day. And each day the chats with my friends became less and less. Now, I just feel empty.

So I thought I'd feed my misery by listing some things that I miss most. And it starts with...

  • You, yes you. I miss you.
  • I miss waking up late in my own room and knowing that even if it's already 10AM it doesn't matter because I am my own boss and I won't have to make up lame excuses why I'm late.
  • I miss waking up early and cooking breakfast.
  • I miss singing in videoke bars.
  • I miss singing in the bathroom.
  • I miss dancing when I'm alone in my room.
  • I miss Coffee Crumble at Bo's.
  • I miss driving.
  • I miss cruising.
  • I miss my CDs, VCDs, DVDs....and VDs (hahaha I'm kidding!)
  • I miss piracy.
  • I miss Spike and Tiny.
  • I miss the fact that I can go where I want to go at any time without worrying of getting lost.
  • I never thought I'd say this but I miss doing big cart groceries and yes, every week.
  • I miss the food. Oh the food.
  • I miss Bacolod, my friends there and the food. Oh the food.
  • I miss seeing regularly dressed people.
  • I miss wearing shorts to work.
  • I miss my computer and all the necessities that I have already installed.
  • I miss editing videos.
  • I miss video production work.
  • I miss the creative rush.
  • I miss my nephew.
  • I miss meeting my friends and talking over coffee.
  • I miss durian.
  • I miss turo-turo or point point.
  • I miss each little aspect of my life in Davao, from my favorite Pink Panther to my loved ones, because all these make up one thing I miss most...
  • I miss my home.

Enough. I can go on forever and if I don't stop soon it's really going to fall and if you can still remember before I left Davao, I promised not to cry again. OUT.
