long weekend

August.
It’s the first day of the month and the last day of the long weekend. At first, I thought it would be boring and uneventful but I was wrong! Ha!

The following were the major activities that kept me busy within that three days:
Movie Time
I watched The HangOver II and The Social Network. I’ve been planning to watch these movies for the longest time but it’s either I was too busy or too lazy. I’m glad I was able to do it this weekend.  If you haven’t watched it, I highly recommend that you check it out. I had a blast watching the two movies.

HangOver Part II

The Hangover II is a good stress reliever and The Social Network is a very informative movie. It tackled the origin of Facebook and the hurdles that the founders went through.

Driving Practice
I was able to practice driving for three consecutive days! Thanks to Kuya Derek, my cousin’s husband, for patiently accompanying me and for giving me pointers in order to polish my driving skill.  And also, I’m truly grateful to my cousin Lorna for scheduling the driving practice.

My driving was a bit rusty last Saturday because of the few days that I did not drive. Nonetheless, I was able to catch up with the aid of the helpful tips that Kuya Derek shared. I have a long way to go and I’m doing my best to take it one practice at a time so as to not stress myself.

The good news is…  I made a great improvement on the following:

  • control of the steering wheel
  • backing up
  • parallel parking
  • road merging
  • left and right turn
  • understanding the rules of the road

It’s a great relief because I can now calm myself and not be too intimidated with the other  vehicles.

Packing & Household Chores
Packing my stuff and doing household chores were the clincher of the long weekend. I’m moving my things to my new dig by the end of this month.

That ends my fruitful long weekend.
