My favorite writing mentor just told me to "get some sleep."
Here's her picture of me: i see you on field in the evening or dawn and then you are emailing me in the morning.
(I usually allot Monday and Tuesday mornings for writing feature stories for Sunstar Weekend)
It's not like it's the first time someone's told me to get some rest. In fact, I'd like to surprise most people who tell me that by giving them a sample by-the-hour-schedule of one day in the life of vera the salimuang girl (big smiley there :)). My punch line would always be, tig-laag gihapon ko kada gabii. 3am is my midnight guys!
Poor me, it's like I'm deliberately throwing myself down the dungeon called "how to age 10 years older in three days!"
And when msMentor ended what she had to say with
"Get some sleep and remain young :-)," this little picture popped out of my head.
It's the first time someone used that line on me and it is enough to convince me that I should start worrying about my health.
Yes, I want to get my tiara back and smile like I'll be forever 22.
