I just wanna share to you that it’s been 3 months since I decided to board home somewhere near at my work because Philippines is shit when it comes to travelling because Traffic and defective public transport is still a huge problem in our country.
Honestly, I didn’t really want board a house since I’m pretty much sure I can handle everything going back and forth. I was able to manage for a year but eventually I totally exhaust myself and finally decided to get a home somewhere very near at work where there is no transportation at all. Yup, one thing I will considering boarding is that, if I board, it’s definitely near like I won’t be having one ride just to go to work. Because first and foremost, I board not just to save time but also to save money 🙂
To give you overview, my current work place’s normal travel time is 2hrs. If there is traffic it will kill you with 4-5hrs. If it’s only 2hrs everyday, I can manage but really, 4-5hrs? That’s like a travel going to province! Philippines got it worst than before and traffic is one hell of a problem here in our country. Add to that our MRT who’s most of the time jam packed and broken! I go to work at 7am so from my original home, I have to wake up at 3am and then depart by 4am. Too early? Yes, because I’ll still get exactly to work by 7am. Which is honestly made me really worn out so that’s why 🙁
So a good friend of mine pursued me so well because they got one vacant slot in a room shared by 4 people. It’s actually a bed space and I haven’t tried bed space before because privacy issues and strangers, if you know what I mean. But since this friend of mine is there I guess you could say that I’m kinda relief at least I know one person inside the house 🙂
So basically it’s a house with 3 floors. 2 rooms on the first floor, 3 rooms on the 2nd floor and 2 rooms on the first floor. Each floors has 1 bathroom and each room needs 4 headcounts. I don’t know who my room mates at first of course (btw– my friend is a guy so we’re not room mates XD) I honestly felt so awkward at first and I’m like not talking at all but eventually we warmed up now we’re almost 3 months living together 🙂
The house is super convenient and cheap. All in all together with the utility expenses, I guess I found this place cheaper and convenient. It has cable, wifi and our room is air-conditioned! Hahahaha! Each room is sub-metered too so it’s up the each rooms how they conserve electricity 🙂 and— I only need to walk to work for only 20 minutes! Which is not that bad since I love walking and walking is also exercise 🙂
So that’s it, I didn’t go thru much inside specially our room because there’s nothing special. It’s small but at least you can sleep comfortably. Btw, the bed is a double deck-bed and I’m on the top XD
Aside from that, I also have a new home for Kimi-Hana. Just last month my previous host decided to close her site since she’s having a hard time with the expenses so she asked me to back up everything. She felt sorry but I understand. So the me was struggling between to take Blogger or Tumblr. Though I’m pretty much used to tumblr layouts I decided to go to blogger because it’s more like blogging than tumblr. But honestly it didn’t made me happy with Blogger so I kept on looking for a free subhosting because I really want to go back on wordpress 🙁
And I stumbled upon Jamie’s blog and check out Candyrain.org because she’s currently hosted under here and luckily, this lovely domain offers free subhosting! Honestly I was scared to try to apply because I’m just used to having friends I knew hosted me before so this is very knew to me XD and just then I emailed her and the lovely Jamie even assisted me! Jamie and Jessica were hospitable and accomodating 🙂 Thank you so much for accepting and finally, here I am back with wordpress and is hosted under Candyrain.org. So happy to be part of this new fam! 😀
Why don’t you just buy a web space? Because it’s too expensive and currently not my priority like I’m not really a web geek so I think that’s too much for me as of now. But I am considering one day because I know it’s much more convenient. The domain name took me a long years before I purchased one my own and I guess I’m okay with just this for now 🙂
So that’s it for my new home!
Feel free to share your thoughts on this! 🙂
