12 days before my Christmas starts and I still don't have the authority to travel. It's really discouraging knowing that, personal, international trips need to be approved by the Department head, which is unfortunately in Manila. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed; I know it will come just in time. I need to keep my mood positive these days, had enough bad days for the past few weeks and it’s time to get up and be ready for Santa!! But hmm, does Santa also visit the south part of the globe?
