New Schedule

I was always waiting for RDOT(Rest Day Over Time) announcements and when management started to asked for people who are willing to render RDOT, upon hearing that i stood rushing up waving my hand like crazy on the air, was about to fall on the ground, because i still had my headset on, to sign up for it. And upon signing up the Team Lead announced that not only it's RDOT pay (wait there's more) there will be additional PhP50 per hour. I was already calculating how much i'll be earning for that day. And i was so happy with the sum. YEeeePPEeee!
Anyways i found out that we have a new schedule,the one that i've been praying for and wishing to have all this months. Our team will be moved to a 'closer' time shift, i love this shift coz not only i can get more sleep at night, i can take care of my kids before they go to school. I was happy. Im SO having a lucky day...RDOT available, PhP50/hr additional and i'm going to have my dream shift! But along with that new time shift they also changed our rest days and of course you know what's next... the RDOT day happened to be the day that was supposed to be my rest day is now a regular day work for me. I dunno what i felt that moment. I SOOO envy those guys who worked today, they get like 220% x basic pay. *sits down and holds her head*

Lessons Learned:
a. Be careful with what you wish for.
b. Be... DETAILED... with what you wish for.
c. Don't be confused with good lucks and bad lucks, only the latter has the privilege of coming in threes.

Bridges of Madison County

One of the great movies i know. I didn't want to watch it at first, i already knew that from the movie preview its a love story. I was thinking heck Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep in a love story movie? *rolls my eyes* who in a right mind put their money to produce this movie? I mean who would want to watch two old people making out? C'mon. I mean we prefer seeing young kids falling in love and then growing up together, but they have to start young in the movie first. But with this movie? Nope! The story started in their midlife. Francesca (Meryl Streep) was a mother of two teenagers and Robert (Clint Eastwood) was a photographer for National Geographic. Just that at that time i really run out of choices for movies that i rented this one.
Alas, lo and behold, i cried like crazy, bawled even, started middle of the movie up till it was showing the credits. I shouldn't be surprise at all, this two magnificent actors,who knows how to choose a very good script definitely knows their craft.Btw i have the book too. This movie breaks your heart into pieces like what you expect in a love story movie to be, it makes you think that a mother will do everything for her kids to the extent of loosing herself, but it makes you realize that love can survive, grow & be so strong even far apart, and that kind of love can happen.. A favorite poem of mine fits this movie...

Tho lovers be lost
But love shall not
And death shall have no dominion

Francesca: Robert, please. You don't understand, no-one does. When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children; in one way her life begins but in another way it stops. You build a life of details. You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move. And when they leave they take your life of details with them. And then you're expected move again only you don't remember what moves you because no-one has asked in so long. Not even yourself. You never in your life think that love like this can happen to you.

Robert Kincaid: This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime.
