Veronika Decides to Die - "To desire death is to desire life

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

In two crucial phases of my life, I may be egotistic but I feel that the Universe send me two books by Paulo Coelho to guide and to comfort me. "The Alchemist" taught me to follow my heart and to take risks in the face of uncertainty and now, amidst feelings of bleakness, I had "Veronika Decides to Die".


In the first few chapters, I saw myself in Veronika. In fact, there are a lot of Veronikas out there living in complete apathy and hopelessness. This may be the latest maladies of our generation. I remembered a time when I was younger when I thought that I wanted to die. Then, as I was walking along East Avenue, I was hit by a motorcycle. Unscatched, (thank heavens that I only have few swellings and bruises) I thought to myself as I limped back home, "God has a silly sense of humor and I just laughed even if my whole body ached and I was literally seeing stars just like Bugs Bunny."

This story is just like that. "To affirm life, we must be conscious of Death." Poignantly true....

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
