So there I was, in yet another company party, in one of BGC’s swankiest clubs nursing a glass of….iced tea. Drinking iced tea. In a club. In BGC.
Like being poured with cold water, realizations slowly crept in. Yup, it can now be said, I’m officially a TITA.
I really shouldn’t be surprised though, I mean there were signs:
I have developed an aversion to them.
I just find their incessant noise and rough housing…ANNOYING and DRAINING. I just want my peace while I listen to my Ted Talks podcasts. Thank you very much.
ATTEMPTED TO KEEP UP WITH CURRENT MUSIC
Feeling legit-ly up to date by adding diversity to your 90’s alternative playlist when you ‘discovered’ ONE current song and then playing it on loop.
AND THEN FAIL
TRUE STORY. A couple of friends from work went to Neverland Manila. While making kwento about the festival, one asked me if I know EDM.
Hello?!?! Of course, I know EDM!
(In a halos pabulong na voice) Yung may tsug tsug, tunog tunog.
Yes, it was just sad.
SHOWED INTEREST IN DOMESTICATED HOBBIES
While friends were climbing mountains and attending raves, I was browsing Metrodeal and was seriously contemplating to buy…A SEWING MACHINE.
Yes. A MAKINA.
Also, the baking/home section of the department store is now officially among my happy places.
LOOKED FORWARD TO GROCERY SHOPPING THE MOST
There is so much excitement whenever I’m in the aisles of SM Hypermart and SNR.
TOOK A WEEK TO RECOVER FROM A NIGHT OF DRINKING
Believe me when I say that I can drink. I once tried marathon drinking for 2 days and still went to work like nothing happened.
NOPE. Pass me the Advil and keep your voices down while I dry heave.
WATCHED PEOPLE’S PHONES AND WALLETS WHILE THEY PARTY
This just got to be my peak tita moment.
While my friends were dancing/flirting their hearts out on the dance floor, I looked after their bags/phones.
While munching on pulutan.
Hey, when you think about it, there is nothing wrong with being a Tita. I am actually relishing the feeling. It may feel like letting go of things you were comfortable with and getting used to a new lifestyle. But it also mean discovering a new facet of yourself.
Now, excuse me mga bes, while I pinned more cupcake recipes. Lol!
How about you? How much of a tita na are you?
