Ready for momentary abatement

I only have three nights left before leaving for Israel. It'll be approximately 17 hours of flight and slack period, Manila being connected to Tel Aviv via Hong Kong.

My preparations aren't halfway through; My luggage's not yet filled with my necessities; My brain's not yet trained for technicalities... Instead of being excited about this trip, I am more of anxious on what work environment I will have to deal with. This will be my first business trip... another "first" for me after some previous firsts I just encountered in the past couple of fortnights.

I've just received my bon voyages from my loved-ones... Gosh, those gave me the bad feelings of goodbyes. And I certainly didn't like it. I could actually empathize now to the emotions drenching our OFWs when leaving the country.

I am now in hiatus with sporadic attention to Drake's Ragbag....

¡Hasta la vez próxima!

Homesickness is the first thing that'll grip someone who leaves motherland for work. May you do well there. Life is hard and sometimes, or oftentimes, never safe.

But you're pinoy. So you'll get through it for sure. Ingat!

@Kiks: Yeah, homesickness kills. I feel it through my veins now after packing my luggage. This is making me emotional. Darn... Oh well... Thanks for the encouragement Kiks. I appreciate it.
@MISTERHUBS: Thanks a lot. I hope to have fun time there. I am actually looking forward in going to the Mediterranean sea and Jerusalem of course. Hope I get the chance to see and feel these places.
