Things I learned so far (4th)

TIL: Airport, Airlines and Airplanes
1.     If you are flying international, please be at the airport at least 3 hours before departure time.
2.     Lines depend on where country you are in. In the Philippines, please be there 4 hours before departure time.
3.     People working depend on where you are again. Some airports that have long lines work faster than short lines that have slow-motion workers.
4.     Take care of your belongings; if it gets lost, it is your fault and only your fault.
5.     No matter where you are, especially in Philippines, always have someone to watch your things.
6.     If possible, have luggage than you can carry. Try to minimize making the helpers carry it all for you.
7.     Minimize your luggage before traveling. Be aware and always remember where you put documents and important stuff. It’s easier if you know where every single thing you need and saves time if it is easy to get.
8.     Not all Airlines are the same. Some vary prices, others quality, etc.
9.     Delayed flights are asshole. But there’s nothing you can do about it.

15. Bring extra cash all the time.
16. Know what to read and where to look. Use common sense.
17. Yet, do not be so obvious when getting lost or having a problem. Some places that are no safe can detect people who are easy to be fooled.
18. Put a lock or two in your luggage.
19. Do not be mad if you something was broken like a glass inside when you get it after the flight.

5.     Do NOT pick your favorite gift while all of the people who gave you are still in the room.
6.     Do NOT be rude at this time of the year.
7.     CONTROL yourself and have help if you cannot do it yourself when it comes to drinking. Remember: Children are present.

3.     Fireworks are beautiful.

1.     Make time to let your partner know, they are important.

3.     Do not be too busy all the time. Priorities are significant; choose what’s more essential.
4.     You cannot force love, just like you cannot take it out.
5.     Give it time to heal. Grieve, be angry, and let it all out. But only life/love moves forward.

13. Give your heart fully; it’s up to you if you can balance taking care of your partner and yourself.
14. Advices are just guidelines and their perspectives. Sometimes they’re helpful and sometimes they’re not. Decide and don’t blame others if it goes bad since you chose to follow them.

15. Realize that you have faults too. Seeing through pride is a big step.
