Okay, I admit. Kung minsan, nakakatamad magbasa ng readings sa school... Kaya kailangan paminsan-minsan ng break at magbasa naman ng iba. I recently discovered a new favorite author, Sidney Sheldon. Sa sobrang pagka-aliw ko sa libro niya, di na ako naka-kain at nakapag-basa ng matino. hehe. at napasulat pa talaga ako, in English. ganyan ako pag nabibilib, napapa-slang! HWOW! haha __________________________

I have always loved reading novels. The ones I love to read are the kind that involves heart-warming or inspirational stories, which is why some of my go-to authors are Mitch Albom and Nicolas Sparks(yup! I am corny like that! Haha.) This very reason made me hesitant to read this book that my friend was trying to make me read. It was by Sidney Sheldon, The Sky is Falling. I was told that it wasn't really my kind of novel but I might find it interesting... And so I did, I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did. I'm not really sure how to describe the book, but it was definitely an experience. It had enough "bite" to keep my heart pounding through the last pages of the book. My heart was POUNDING, over a BOOK?! And the characters and twists are well thought of and well crafted, almost at par with the Bourne series. Needless to say, I was hooked! I was so hooked that I missed dinner and made me forget about exams and deadlines. I am definitely buying myself a copy of the book, and probably more of his other works later. http://www.squidoo.com/sidney-sheldon PS. My first anniversary as a blogger and my 21st birthdayare fast approaching... it would be nice to receive Sidney Sheldon book/s as gifts. Haha! Demanding? __________________________
Nabasa ko na rin yung prequel nito, yung Best Laid Plans. Astig! parang ang hirap gawan ng pelikula! haha
tama bang magpa-tattoo sa batok? at tama bang ballpen ang gamitin? haha
Ayon kay Karl Marx, "individuals should only work for 6 hours and spend the rest of the day to better and glorify them themselves." Bakit kaya hindi siya pinakinggan ng tao? kung iisipin, may point naman siya. madalas, sampung oras o mahigit pa ang ginugugol natin sa pagaaral o trabaho. Pagdating sa bahay, wala nang energy para sa kung anuman at diretso tulog na para simulan ulit ang mahigit sampung oras na trabaho. Kung iisiping mabuti, para saan nga ba ang pagpupursige natin? Hindi ba't para sa mahal mo sa buhay?... na hindi mo na nakakasama dahil lahat ng oras mo ay nasa trabaho. Hindi ba't para sa sarili mo rin?... na hindi man lang makapag-pahinga dahil sa dami ng trabaho. At the end of day, para nga ba kanino ang paghihirap nating ito? Sagutin niyo nga... Sagutin niyo!
-Sagot ng isang batang itago natin sa pangalan na nightcrawler sa mga kaibigan niya kung bakit mas kailangang magpahinga kesa maglinis ng bahay! haha.
pakening! nanakawan nanaman ako ng wallet. Nakita na lang sa tabi na wala nang laman. Asar talaga. Buti na lang nasanay na ako na P500 lang ang maximum na laman ng wallet. Dati kasi, nanakawan na rin ako nang halos P5000 ang laman eh. kaya kayo, mag-ingat ha? mahirap na ang buhay ngayon!
hey guys... what's up? it's been more than two weeks since my last post at talagang nakaka-miss magsulat at magbasa ng mga blogs niyo. Sobra kasing naging hectic ang schedule ko, at kahit ngayon ay medyo busy pa rin talaga ako. Anyway, hindi pa rin naman talaga ako tumigil sa pagsusulat. everytime maka-singit ako ng kaunting oras ay nagsusulat pa rin ako ng mga pangyayari sa buhay ko. heto ang isa sa mga naisulat ko habang naghihintay sa isang klase... ____________________________

There was a point in my life when i felt like loneliness is synonymous to being alone. Everytime I end up by myself, I question myself, "Am I not a fun person? Am I annoying? Am I not worthy of a companion?" There was a time in highschool when I watched a film in a moviehouse alone. I watched the film POSEIDON, a less budgeted, lamer version of Titanic. I was sitting there, enjoying the crap that is Poseidon, when I realized that I have no one to share this crappiness with. I went home feeling like the seat next to me, Empty.
Years later, I have striven to be active in different activities to keep me busy. I joined a peer facilitator's group, choir, psych group, a regional organization, etc. None the less, I got over my fear of being alone. In fact, I barely have time for myself. Even when I am alone, I know that I'm not because I'm constantly in communication with all my commitments. I used to think that surrounding me with lots of people will keep me out of my fear. It takes moments like this, walking alone in an empty hallway, to appreciate and realize what had been missing all along. I figured that the reason I was unhappy during my younger years is that I wasn't happy with myself. I was always depressed, thinking about things that were way beyond my control and I believed that I can only be happy in the presence of others. I wasn't happy, not until I have learned to accept things as way of life, that I can only control so much of it. Learning all these have made me love myself even more and I have become a more positive person.
Apparently, being an optimistic person attracts the opposite, not that I am complaining, but it made me realize that what they are going through right now was exactly where I was before, lost and unapreciative of his own being. I hope I can help them find what's missing, that certain thing that made me realize that happiness starts from within, and when you radiate happiness, it is one of the best feelings in the world.
Even in an empty hallway, crazy as it may sound, I don't feel alone anymore. In fact, I cherish this moment I have for myself and I enjoy it even more because I know that it will take a while again before I get to do this again. I am alone, but not really. I am happy. ____________________________
