After how many months of waiting, I’m finally back in my hometown.

As of this writing, I am in a quarantine facility doing a mandatory 14-day quarantine before I can go home to my parents.

I’m with my sister, and we both had an exhausting journey just to get home. Nevertheless, we are both grateful that we are in our hometown, and in a couple of days, we will be with our family again.

I’ve been thinking for the past days what I want to do while I am here. I do not know when will I be back in Cebu and with that fact, I want to make my stay memorable and most especially with a purpose.

So here are some of the things, I want to do while in my hometown.

Spend more time with family

This pandemic really made me realize how important it is to be with your family in these uncertain times.

We were in our apartment in Cebu City since March. Hiding and doing our best to avoid being infected by Covid-19. During those days, we badly wanted to be with our parents. They were worried about us especially that Cebu was badly affected by the pandemic.

I will definitely spend more time with my family and treat every day as a gift and another chance to be with them.

Reconnect with my friends

I know for a fact that my friends and I grew up differently.

To be honest, I am a bit nervous sometimes on how I will approach some of my friends back home. Sometimes, I come very straight forward and too open for their conservative environment. I’ll try to be more careful and be more sensitive about their feelings to know them better.

We have a lot of history together, from clueless kids to awkward puberty stage. I believe that we have a great relationship to create together.

To simply put it, I want to reconnect with them and continue to build our relationship now that I am home.

Explore my home province more

One of the things I’m very excited about is to explore my backyard more.

I know for a fact that my province has a lot to offer, and I want to discover the best of Surigao del Sur.

I’m looking forward to revisiting familiar locations and try new adventures. Hopefully, I can write more about it here on my blog and maybe share more travel blogs with you as well on my YouTube channel.

I hope you are in a place where you are close to your family and friends as well.
