10-Minute Warning VIII

So, what can I type here in under 10 minutes?

Well, let me start with something related to work: today marks 2 months of being in the family business. And I got my salary this morning – a day after salary day! And no, I’m not complaining. At least I got paid. However, I do hope for earlier pay next time.

Speaking of the family business, maybe I should make a post about it soon? Maybe I should because I’m not planning on staying in the company for another month or 2, but it would be nice to look back at helping my family.

What else? Oh, right. I was planning on blogging today at my favorite cafe Satchmi after running errands. But now that I’m blogging right now at home, I’m not sure if I need to bring my laptop while doing my quick trips. I’ll make my final decision after having lunch and another cup of coffee or vanilla-flavored Energen.

Going back to my salary, I’m proud to say that since January 2023 I have spent less than PHP 1,000 or lower per week. Sometimes I spend nothing. Why am I so proud? Let me compare the 2023 version of myself to the 2014 version of myself: my old self would spend a lot of money on new Funko Pops per week. I’m so proud, man.

Speaking of Funko Pops, I pre-ordered this cool Undertaker/Paul Bearer two-pack set last December and I still haven’t received any updates from the store. That’s all right though. At least I’m on the pre-order list. I just have to wait. And when I pay for the set (in April, I think), that will mark my 1st big purchase for 2023. Lately, I have been saving more than spending less, so I think I deserve a reward.

And thank you, Funko, for making figures of the purple-gloved Undertaker (one of my favorite Taker eras) and Paul Bearer (my favorite pro wrestling manager)! I’m looking forward to picking up the item soon!

And time’s up.

Yes, he wears a mask sometimes. And according to most people, he looks like Bruno Mars when he is unmasked. He is a web/graphic designer by day and a hobby writer by night. (Or during his free time. It depends.) He is a huge fan of Dave Grohl and The Undertaker. He is a friendly introvert.
