Day 144: Of Terrorism and Disappointments

I just heard the worst possible news through Facebook today. My news feed was bombarded with posts about the recent bombing that happened in my hometown last night. Although none of my friends and family members were hurt but it was still the most horrendous thing that can happen especially to a once peaceful city, even dubbed as 'The City of Golden Friendship'. I know it's not right starting my post with such awful news but please help me pray for those who were injured and also for the safety of everyone in my hometown.

Anyway, let's talk about what happened today. I almost called off from work when I woke up to a very cold bed weather. It was so hard to separate myself from my bed when all I wanna do was snuggle and hid myself in the covers. Good thing my senses snapped to reality and I was able to finally force myself out of bed. Everything was doing well at work until before my lunch break. My friend told me that a guy from my team said really awful things about what I was wearing. And that started to ruin my day.

I tried my best to keep calm and just let it go but it was not the easiest thing to do. I could not help getting angry to the point that I wanted to lash out and cry. I was so silent during lunch that eventually my workmates noticed it. I was never good with confrontations and my overly used defense mechanism in situations like this was to keep it to myself and be mum about it as much as possible. It never occured to me to confront that certain person mainly because the tension would just be too much for me. Finally, one of my workmates decided to inform him how I felt about what he said and before the shift ended, the guy came to me and apologized.

I can never hold a grudge on anyone and as long as you say sorry sincerely, that's already enough for me. But that will forver leave a mark and it's something that I will never forget. After work, I attended mass with one of my friends and we went home after. That's when my roommate told me that aside from grinding my teeth during sleep two nights ago, I also laughed while I was asleep last night. It's a bit embarrassing especially when it gets noticed, I just hope it doesn't level up to sleepwalking or anything like that. Creepy!
