"Quirky Alone Together! "

Sometimes even if you're as independent as you want to be, there can be doubts that will gnaw on you because it's 12 midnight and you're in your own room... of course quirky alone with a book in your hand and reggae music in the background. You don't mind, honestly you don't. But then, there's this comfort as you read words such as,"Loneliness is the pain of being alone while solitude is the glory of being alone."

As far as I can remember, I don't mind being alone. I can go to movies alone, in college I learned to eat alone in the school cafeteria and to just have an alone time, a gimik to treat myself - browsing at bookstores, listening to music stations at record bars and having coffee and reading a book at starbucks. I just like being alone. Sometimes being with people overwhelms me. Especially loud and aggressive people, I stay away from them like a plague.

I am a highly sensitive person (another book altogether). I get the feelings of people around me and when they tell me their problems, troubles, everything, I absorb them. I like talking with my friends. They are my second family. I am very passionate with my frienships that's why I have high hopes and expectations from them. I give friendships my all. That's why I really gauge if a person is a good friendship material until I give my "heart" to them.

I was deeply hurt by a close friendship last year that's why I am at some kind of friendship hiatus this past year. I never let anyone to go that close. I felt betrayed but that's another story again. But I guess, a year is such a long time, time to move on and find quirky alones to create new bonds again.

I relish being quirky alone. It's interesting to note that I found comfort in the realization that I am not alone in being quirky alone. There are people who are really living like this. Married to oneself and having many close relationships with other quirky alones.

Yup, you've read that right; there are people who married themselves! Are they Narcissists? I am not sure but there's some kind of romanticism about it. You want to take care of others and you want to be taken cared of by your partner but why not take care of yourself?

Being quirky alone is not better than having a partner, but it's an alternative lifestyle. It's like being gay or lesbian. It sometimes is a choice. Do you want to be a quirky alone? I think it's going to be the lifestyle of the future... single-member households but living in a loving communitiy of single families.

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 …
