Seasons of Love...

Warning: EMO Post ahead..

As I was running around the park, I suddenly froze on my tracks. The song in my mp3... the first few bars sounded familiar... yep, it is... the song from the movie rent. Seasons of Love. Gosh, what a day to be sentimental. So, I just sat by the swing and looked out at the lake and thought of the last seven months. Was it just seven months? So much has happened and now, it's time to wind down and recollect.

As I began my journey a couple of months back (October post) , I had an inkling that this part of the journey will have its ups and downs. But I never thought that it was going to be ups and downs, then left and right.. and every which direction you could think of. Who could have thought that the past, present and future can be bittersweet.

"How can you measure a year in the life..." ... "how about love :) ".

AMEN!

P.S. I went to the gym, and I had to stop because as I was walking.... I felt tears running down my face. Oh gawd, I will miss this place.. I will miss going home to someone and listening to her mutterings and her kabaklaan. I will miss driving around my alagas, I will miss guru Cads and our ping pong sessions and lunch chuva and the way he confuses me sometimes with his logic (I am a 486 compared to his pentium hahaha). I miss taking care of my roomies. I will miss the trees and the lake. Gawd, I am so thankful for this experience. And I just can't stop crying right now :( But this is good crying... cleanses my soul... huwaaaahhh..

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.

Baby boom

The first time we settled here in Melbourne we got to know a lot of fellow Pinoys who are living on a different environment. We joined them in making Australia our second home. In each gathering, we try to get to know them better and reconnect.

We didn't know how it happened. But after 2 years, suddenly each couple had their own babies. Don't get me wrong, babies are cute but it was just surprising to note that parties suddenly turn into an event similar to family reunions back home.

Instead of blood relatives, you get to see friends and their kids grown before your eyes. It's not the gray hair that makes me feel old.  It's the babies and kids that are now walking and developing into little adults.

I can't complain. For some reason, it is good for now, to look and enjoy kids from afar. It's fun to carry them for a few minutes compared to living with a baby 24/7. It must be hard. I really commend couples with kids and having to work for a living at th…
Change is a must

I saw this post from a friend and I completely agree with this one.

"Why do we go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And then people see you differently. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving"

We long for home when we are away and we get to realize how happy little moments, celebrations were. When you come home, you enjoy each moment with magnified happiness proportionate to the amount of time you were gone. You also are more thankful of the people who matter the most. It's realizing their value from afar.

This is what life taught me and I am grateful.

AMEN? Amen!
