ordinary song


I was sitting in the last part of the bus halfway to the province when i realized i was sobbing, I had only a small piece of handkerchief covered on my face. I didn't mind it at all, I just couldn't stop myself from crying. I could hardly bring myself that it's true, lolo has expired as what Tita Odet told me from her text message.

Why this song??? This reminded me of how i declined to sing this song when lolo asked me to. I thought he was referring to a different song that has got the same song name so i refused to. I should've sang it. The span of time we shared means a lot to me but i don't know why. I just actually forgot to ask him why this song and i'm wondering now. It also reminded me of how our conversations echoed the whole house every night, now i miss the old good times. He has many stories to tell and probably he never ran out of it. He spoke english better than I thought he could. He might be the oldest guy i talked to but it felt like he talked like my age, very young at heart.

But he sometimes meddled my good night sleep because when he's starving he woke me up to prepare his good night snack (laughs). He wanted to wake me up early in the morning to exercise and i didn't like that. He also wanted me to drink hot drinks every morning and i didn't like it as well. He once reprimanded me because i really felt like going home but probably he didn't want me to. I was very young then, I wanted to explore and be freed. It never occurred to me that i was adamant. They should've told me everything 'bout him, i was so stupid then but i should've been more sensitive.

grrr grrr grrr

Mobile phones are very useful in this time of age and there are a lot of things to utilize it. One is text messaging, it is one of the means to communicate. Currently, someone is sending me some messages, and introduced herself as me, i mean like she is me. At first, I was having fun guessing who she is, I find it as a joke but yesterday it was no joke.

This is for you: Look, I have no idea who you are but I don't know if you've outsmarted me. Your messages yesterday was awful. I don't treat it as a joke as much as you did. I hate when someone talks to me that way because I won't do that to anyone else. You sound so mean though but i'm definitely not like you, I just can't be mean to you in return, rather, I can't afford being one. Your prank was not as funny as you think it was, have you ever been schooled because you sound obnoxiously dumb. If we happened to be friends I would get hurt, did we hook up? I hope we didn't because probably you're the filthiest creation I would ever knew, now I mean it. I don't usually do this when I'm in this rage, but this is worth to be posted. This may seem funny to you, I DON'T CARE.

Give Yourself a Break

You're extra busy at work this month, but you need to find time to unwind: Doing too much can make you sick. Those who clock 51-plus hours a week are 30 per cent more like to have high blood pressure than those who work less than 40, say University of California, Irvine, experts. And those with chronic job stress are up to five times more likely than a stress-free workers to get metabolic syndrome, a group of risk factors that can lead to heart disease and diabetes. To stay healthy, ease the strain: Make friends on the job and take breaks.

I've found a new set of mates in my workplace, we are very different from each other, from our age, behavior, and status in life but there's only one thing common to us: LAAGAN (wanderer), to stress out. Here are some of our pictures taken during our laag.

After a busy days of work, it feels so good when you sometimes chill with friends, with your family or anyone you want to spend it with away from your busy work and somehow forget it for awhile. The faces are so bright as you can see and they won't probably trade it for a thousand bucks.

What Music Says About You???

There has always been plenty of anecdotal evidence when it comes to a link between music taste and personality, and now comes the scientific proof. A massive study of more than 36,000 people around the world, conducted by Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, has determined which of six character traits apply to lovers of each genre.


ROCK/HEAVY METAL - low self-esteem, creative, not hardworking, not outgoing, gentle, at ease.

RAP - high self-esteem, outgoing.

OPERA - high self esteem, creative, gentle.

COUNTRY AND WESTERN - hardworking, outgoing.

SOUL - high self-esteem, creative, outgoing, gentle, at ease.

REGGAE - high self-esteem, creative, not hardworking, outgoing, gentle, at ease.

DANCE - creative, outgoing, not gentle.

INDIE - low self-esteem, creative, outgoing, at ease.

BOLLYWOOD - creative, outgoing.

JAZZ - high self-esteem, creative, outgoing, at ease.

CLASSICAL MUSIC - high self-esteem, creative, introvert and at ease.

CHART POP - high self-esteem, creative, outgoing, and at ease. (reader's digest)

Music has always been my remedy whenever i feel quite unsure of what i feel or i get tired in a day, it somehow really vanishes my weariness and it changes the bad day to good. It somehow transports you to another place like everywhere. I've been listening to every kinds of music ever since, I just find it quite relaxing and enjoy myself listening especially to my favorites artists.

danielle steel

It was mid-year during my freshman in high school, teacher's day was fast approaching then. I was the class president back then, so I have to think what should I give to our adviser on behalf of the class. Fortunately, one of our subject teacher told me that she (our adviser) likes Danielle Steel's novels. I just flew right away to the nearest bookstore to look for Steel's novels but it never occurred to me that she's one good.

I was once saw her novels in our school library during college, i tried reading one and i found out i like her writings, her stories. From then on and until now, I still read her works, i sometimes borrowed them from friends (Lylani Marie Tradio, Ethel Satorre and Yam Dipay, these three are also a fan).

According to Erin Collazo Miller, Danielle Fernandes Schuelein-Steel was born on August 14, 1947 in New York City, New York. She graduated from the Lycee Francais de New York in 1965 and also studied at New York University. Steel has been married five times (Claude-Eric Lazaro, Danny Zugelder, William Toth, John Traina and Tom Perkins) and raised nine children. She is currently single. According to her web site, Steel's family is the most important thing in her life.

She began writing stories and poetry as a child. She compled her first novel at age 20 but was not published until she was 26. Steel is currently one of the most prolific writers in the world, best known for her romance novels. She lives in San Francisco and spends part of the year in France.

what if...

what if i'd say i'm tired
would it let me relax?
what if i'd say this is no good
would i be afraid to admit?
what if i'd say i'm sick of pretending
would i be feelin' great and good?
what if i'd say i can't almost hold it anymore
would i not be damn sick?
what if i'd say my whole being's shattered
it's crashed and devastated
would i get something
to make it whole again?
what if i'd say i give up
will it stop there?
what if i'd say i will win
would my persistency be realized?

This is one of the latest poems i composed. I made this late last year, when i found out that i felt everything's not in good position. I was likely exhausted, i need someone to talk to but i can't find a good confidant so i just wrote it down instead.

oh..dawson's creek

I started watching Dawson's Creek when i was in high school, i was really enjoyed and entertained but it's not airing here in the Philippines anymore. I sometimes find myself craving to watch for this series because i learned some things like relationship to your family, friends and lovers. It has approximately 6 seasons plus the series finale.

Set in a small coastal, Massachusetts town named Capeside, Dawson's Creek tells the story of four teenagers as they struggle through adolescence. This is particularly true for 15-year-olds Dawson Leery, an introspective dreamer and Joey Potter, a precocious tomboy unaware of her beauty. Best friends since childhood, they are about to enter that confusing time in life where nothing is the way it was and nothing as it seems.

We all knew that God made everything, but what about Him? Have you ever wondered where God came from? Who sent Him? Does He instantly appeared without any explanations? Did He once a child, where are His parents? Do you also wonder if He has a throne and does He always sitting on it? Do you think He has magical wand like what most of the magicians have in magical movies? Does He always keep an eye on us or He has some men to do the work? Does He teleport to the place He wants to go or does He just walk to get there? Does He get hungry then eat and does He get thirsty then drink? Does He smile or frown? Does He get tired and does He sleep? Does He watch movies or listen to music or does He plays sports? Does He smell awful then take a bath and does He change clothes? Does He get sick and does He get confused? What age does He look? Does He and Jesus talk or discuss things like most parents and their children do?

Just wondering and i really have no idea. It's very astonishing how He appears and has powers to do what He wants. There's no such thing as perfect in the humans but with God alone, He is so bright and very powerful that He made everything really perfect.

When i was about to write this stuff, i was wondering what should i write. Trapped in a confusion, I tried to ask my father what does he think is a good topic and he answered, 'LIFE'. I heaved a deep sigh because it's quite broad but i was delighted when i realized that it was a nice idea.

What is life really all about? Life to me is God's greatest gift to us and taking care of it, knowing the values of life and what you do with your life is your gift to Him. Life somehow stinks and offensive yet it is full of wonderful surprises. It is an adventure and most exhilarating at the same time. You may lose or win but how you deal with it and overcome trials depends on you.

Life is also about making choices. You choose what you want and a consequence will follow. The future is the product of the past. Your journey depends on you but sometimes you have no power to control over certain things.

There are times that you just can't understand some things and you're feeling like you're being blown up, it freaks you to the point where everything of you is almost drain. It's kind exhausted because things really aren't easy, it's like you're being pulled downward and you can't help yourself to rise up from drowning.

Adversities are just around the corner and sometimes it's moving closer to you. There are some bad things in your life that you never expected to happen. But no matter how hard life is, just bare with it, it's one of the things that life is made of. You just have the strength to face it boldly but i felt sorry for others who don't have the courage to be strong. Just don't allow yourself to despair, instead help yourself to see the meaning of your life that has been given to you. Your resilience, perseverance and trust will help you get through and armed yourself with intelligence, common sense, enthusiasm and faith.

We cannot deny that problems always exist, so we should prepare ourselves for the problems that may come our way and decide how will handle them. It is truly obnoxious how things go that way. But don't let that feeling of being offended turn into grudge, instead do something to make things better than the best.

Hush...You're Sleeping


Have you ever caught yourself unaware that you had just fallen asleep no matter how you tried to stop yourself but you just banged your head in the air? Who doesn't want to sleep anyway? Animals sleep even plants do. Everybody wants to sleep especially when you're tired and you want to relax your whole system.

Sleeping has always been one of my hobbies since i was a kid. It sounds and it feels very incomplete to me when I've only got less than 6 hours of sleep. There are times that i have to choose between sleep and eat but no matter how hungry i am i can't resist from sleeping.

According to HELPGUIDE, when you continuously don’t get the amount of sleep you need, you begin to pay for it in daytime drowsiness, trouble concentrating, irritability, increased risk of falls and accidents, and lower productivity.

Sleep benefits to our immune system, nervous system and development. Immune system - It doesn’t seem fair. Right when you are exhausted after a stressful move or a big project at work, you come down with a cold. That’s no accident - sleep is essential to the immune system. Without adequate sleep, the immune system becomes weak, and the body becomes more vulnerable to infection and disease.

Nervous system - Sleep is also a time of rest and repair to neurons. Neurons are the freeways of the nervous system that carry out both voluntary commands, like moving your arm, and involuntary commands, like breathing and digestive processes.

Hormone release - Many hormones, substances produced to trigger or regulate particular body functions, are timed to release during sleep or right before sleep. Growth hormones, for example, are released during sleep, vital to growing children but also for restorative processes like muscle repair.

How will you know if you are suffering from sleep deprivation? Sleep deprivation occurs when you are not sleeping the right amount for your individual needs. If you are falling asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow, regularly need an alarm clock to wake up, or feel the need for frequent naps during the day, it is very likely you are sleep deprived. Other signs are difficulty waking up in the morning, poor performance in school, on the job, or in sports, difficulty making decisions, difficulty making decisions, falling asleep during work or class and feeling especially moody or irritated. Sleep deprivation can be dangerous not only to you but others, since it affects motor skills like driving. Chronic sleep deprivation is also thought to cause long term changes to the body, which contribute to increased risk for obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

So, find time to sleep to make yourself useful during your waking hours.

You Let Go...You Hold On

I once received a text message like: "A girlfriend said to her boyfriend: 'I knew that you love someone else and i'll set you free if that'll make you happy.' The girl was crying when she left, the boy ran quickly to the girl, hugged her, kissed her hands and he said: 'Thank You.'"

It's awful isn't it? Letting go of someone you love especially when you have bonded together is very difficult, it would probably be one of the worst thing that would happen to you.

Letting go is a good thing, it means that you've decided to accept. It also means showing them how great is your love. It brings so much pain and loneliness and yet there's tranquility. Time will heal it, just wait, it might take you longer but it will do you good.

It's hard and you think you can't do it, you don't want to lose your grip and sometimes it's harmful to us. I've witnessed how some people hold on, it sometimes paid off but sometimes it's killing them. It's good to hold on but most of the times it's not healthy, it feels like your a monster in the midst of a disaster. Pretensions lying next to you, that you're still good, everything's in their right places when you know very well that the situation is 'bout to tear the relationship apart. It's bringing you trouble, it complicates things and somehow you'll realize that it's been awhile and still you could hardly make a decision and you want to wish that if only things aren't going this way. But pause for awhile, look back and try to discover what you've done that could've contributed to what's been going on.

Change is one of the constant things in the world. People change, everything changes and it's a matter of acceptance. You may love someone very much but still find a way to let go, make an effort and just always take care of yourself because who else will do and everything will follow.

At some point, you have to decide to move on, you've got to stop blaming the past for all miseries in the present. But who wants to endure that pain? No one but it's hard because sometimes there's no exemption. But if one day you'll find yourself hanging, would you let go or hold on?


Do you remember the last time you said 'Thank You'? Try to remember an event wherein you have received kindness from your fellow. Did someone give you something to eat when you're hungry. Did someone let you take his seat when you are standing on a bus? Or have you ever been answered politely from your inquiries?

I was in line in a grocery store, one afternoon, when an old man next to me asked a favor if he could insert between me and the woman before me. I granted his favor and he said 'Thank You' with a big smile in his face.

Many times in our daily lives, we encountered so many things and we are oblivious that there are plenty of things to be grateful. Sometimes problems arise and it feels so weary and it teases your day. There's always hope for everything. Take a pause for a moment, look around you, there so many things to be thankful and be happy about.

Let me share to you a story. I had a friend who's always complaining everytime his parents don't prepare a delicious meal. I was distracted by his attitude so i brought him to a neighbor's house and i let him witnessed the scarcity. Sometimes, they only have one meal a day yet you could not hear any complains from them, in fact, they always grateful for one meal a day is a blessing and that's probably what my friend should reflect.

And now let me share my own story. When i was younger, my mom used to bring me in a store. One time, i spotted a very beautiful pair of shoes, i really bugged her to buy it for me because i don't like to wear my old shoes anymore but she refused to buy it. I was very disappointed and i was crying when we left until we got home.

On the next day, i went with my mom again to visit her old friend, named Glenda. I found out that her left leg was amputated because of a car accident long time ago but she still wearing a true beautiful smile when we arrived. As i remember during that visit there was still gratitude and hope despite of her condition. I feel like I've been cheated because i never realized before that i can walk anytime i wish without a pair of shoes or even barefooted, while Glenda needs a wheelchair or even a person to carry her.

We are usually like this. There are so many times in our lives that we always forget to say Thank you for everything. God is so good that everyday in our lives He gives us blessings just like waking up from our deep sleep. Most of the times, we don't notice great things in life.

Try to think right now, I'm sure there are lots of things you are thankful for. Just bare in mind that expressing gratitude even to the smallest things could make a difference. I wonder why sometimes when we desire a thing we want it badly and immediately but we can't even appreciate for the things that we have.

If the only prayer you ever say in your life is 'thank you', it will be enough -Meister Eckhart-
(I got this title in one of the comics, and put down my thoughts).
