In My Life...

Vaneney gave me a booklet entitiled, What should I do if I only have 30 days to live? My mind went totally blank because I can never think of anything that I wanted to cram about. "Travel?", Mommie Car told me. Yes, of course, travel but I have this notion that when I die I can travel to the places that I want to.

You try the exercise, it's not an easy task I tell you. But right now, when I think about it, I have no regrets about my life and if I go right now, I know that I have lived a good life and I tried to be the best person that I can be. I have no unfinished business and I think this is the life I planned when I just started. Of course, I always think... "The best is yet to come :)".

As I think about the last 3 years, I can't help but be grateful for all of the experiences and people that I met. It's true that I had my bouts of depression, self pity and anger against my family and life in general. But I know that it was something I had to go through so I would know how precious the moments that I have right now.

I have never been so happy in my life. Of course a big part of it is because I met the perfect person for me and also because I became more open to what I feel and what I think. Before, I would keep things inside and just kept silent even if there were unfair things that come my way. I was raised as a good Catholic girl and I know that I must keep it all inside. Then, I started to think that Life is too short to play nice.

I learned to expect big things from the universe. I thought that happiness is a state of mind and this may sound egotistical but happiness is my right as a human being who only wanted love, peace and beauty in life. I pushed back when needed and I tried to teach others to be strong and to also expect good things to happen.

Think of good thoughts, extend happiness and love to the people around you and pursue the good things in life like food, music and literature. Love, love and love without expecting in return but don't be bitter when it's not returned. Be kind to others since they might be having a difficult journey. Smile to everyone that you meet, who knows you might be warming the soul of another.

Be kind to your body but have some vices once in a awhile. Chalice always say, "wala niyan sa langit.. " Have fun and always, always be proactive. In a dull situation , always think of fun things to do. We all want to be different but a few have the courage to do what they want to do without fear of society's ridicule, Bb. Gandanghari is a good example.

You can be good, but adventure is the wine of existence. I chose a different kind of adventure and I think I chose the right path.

Carpe Diem everyone and live life with courage. Don't be afraid of rejection, the biggest regret of all are thoughts of what if. Dive into life and love everything about it. This is the best adventure there is - To live a normal life with panache and grace.

See you all around! AMEN!

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

This is our new business venture. Please place your orders just in time for Valentine's!
The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
