Life's lessons in a year...

Before the year 2007 started, I was watching the movie "Rent". I liked the movie but never in my wildest dreams thought that I could also be given an opportunity to experience a year full of Seasons of Love.

Yes, this is an EMO post so I am giving straight laced people out there a warning! hahaha...

There are a lot of lessons to be learned and a lot of catching up to do. First off, I learned the not so subtle differences between "I Like You.", "Love you" and "I Love You". I am turning 30 next year and I am still at age 13 in terms of this. Sometimes I think, I am too old for this. But better be 30, rather than 40 right? :)

Trust, now that's something new. My friends know, that I have strong ESP. Sometimes the perky one asks the question in her head and after thinking it, I will answer it. I thought it was spoken out loud but it was all in her head.

I can sometimes read minds especially that of my friends and family. This runs in my family I guess. My mom is scary. There were times when she'll have dinner ready when I get home and laid out is the ulam I was craving for. I didn't tell her, it's just there. The table arrangement the exact thing I had in my mind while I was on the bus.
So, what will you do if you know you have ESP and you have a hunch that's something is amiss? Of course, jealousy to the max. An emotion I have never encounterd before. My friends tell me that I should trust the perky one but oh my gosh, I just wish I don't have such faith in my ESP or wish that I don't have one.
Baby steps, baby steps, one day at a time.... life wouldn't be much fun if we don't have our quirks... hahaha :)

So, how will you measure a year in a life? How about love :)

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 …
