Priorities

As my best friend and I were talking, he was asking me, "how does it feel to be thirty". The gay is just a few months younger than I am and he feels that I am ancient! I told him that I feel great because I aged backwards :) I feel that I am just 18 right now. You should have seen me at 18 man, I looked like someone with all the weight of the world at her shoulders. I took life very seriously then. I had my hair in a bun, and I had thick black glasses and I just wanted to go home and watch Xena. wehehehe :)

Things changed as I grew older. Now, I am more relaxed, at peace with who I am and with nothing to prove to anyone. I laugh, I love and I don't care about the repercussions. At work, I still love what I do, but there's no fire anymore in me to go beyond what is expected. I knew how it was to perform above and beyond, and at the end I just cried myself to sleep. So, lessons learned, I just need to put my energies to things that will make me truly happy.…

Prop 8 - Misunderstanding of words?

The day that Prop 8 was passed (together with Obama becoming the first black president) was described by a writer like the opening paragraph from Charles Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities.."It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." True, Americans went past race (slight blame on the lingering recession) but they still have a very rigid hold on their view about homosexuality.

"Proposition 8 was a California State ballot proposition that amended the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman. It overrode a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. The official ballot title language for Proposition 8 is "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry." The entirety of the text to be added to the constitution was: "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in Califo…
Baka ma-Madagascar ka? :)

Newsflash: A recent incident made me coin the work "Madagascar" to mean, Magoyo or Maloko - to be deceived. It's a long story but tonight I realized that I was such a fool. This post below by Bob Ong made me smile :) So, to all those who were madagascared.. this one is for you :)

My falling star ...

One unforgettable day from the week that was:

I was doing my usual work when I felt that I needed some nicotine in my system (translation: I wanted to be with my star :)). I went over and ask her if we could go down to the lobby for a quick yosi break. She obliged and while we were walking, she said these words that turned my world upside down. "I am resigning..." I smiled but I could hear my heart silently breaking and I was trying my best not to cry in front of her. Why??? Oh why :(

When we were smoking I think she felt that I was still in shock...she tapped my shoulder and said, "I am just a couple of blocks away :)" I know, but I wanted to say: "Lately, my day isn't complete without killing my lungs with you..." Cheesiness to the mushiest level talaga.

We headed back to our cubes and I was still in a daze. I am going to lose her... and I realized that maybe this is the universe's way of telling me to move o…
