Along with my long work hours, I’ve been going through some relationship problems recently. So the past month or so I have been ultra stressed. So I decided to take a vacation on a whim.
Started searching for semi affordable places in Asia and somehow I got to the Phillipeans, which is a country I cannot spell for the life of me. I mean… what is it… 4 L’s? 6 P’s? We all get a free pass on the spelling right? And I was just considering going to Manila for the heck of it. So I just bought a ticket for 5 days / 4 nights leaving in less than 48 hours for less than $1000. Not bad I guess.
But then I started searching for things to do after I got there. Now I’m not one of those resort snobs, but I’ve been stressed. I’ve been through a lot the past month, and I thought it would be nice to have some relaxing beaches, maybe a spa, something nice to look at… but right after I bought the ticket and started getting excited, I found out that in Manila, apparently it’s just some cathedrals, casinos, crimes and hookers. Sounds like some more stress. Serves me right for buying a ticket without checking it out.
So I’m in the middle of trying to cancel my ticket / hotel reservation right now so I can go to Boracay, where I’m sure they got what I’m looking for. I just need to chill out for a few days, be by myself, write a little, read a little, and just BE a little. Sometimes we all get too busy living, we forget being (am I being profound or a plagiarist?).
At this point, I’m pot committed. I’m going to Boracay, whatever the cost. This is going to cost me an entire month’s salary, but whatever!! I’m going to buy my sanity back!! And if not, I’ll just go to Manila and get some hookers with the money I steal at the casino on the sabbath 🙂
