Don't Settle

The death of Steve Jobs made me realized that there are lessons that he preached that I have done in my life. I never settled for anything less than what I loved. My most recent decision to leave a managerial job was because I was turning into a person that was not true to my beliefs and my spiritual style.

I didn't love my work then. Each day, waking up was a chore. I was a working zombie... a machine. I didn't like the feeling of telling people policies that I didn't personally believe in and didn't understand. I felt like a pawn and it was killing me inside. Thus, I made a change to work for something that excites me.

In my own way, I became true to my spirit and to the universe and it rewarded me with true happiness. If you really feel miserable, do something about it. Life is short and live it the way your spirit intended it before you were born.

Amen? Amen!

Hi Ate Nette! Glad to 'read' something from you again! Sadly, I'm starting to feel the same thing. Waking up has become a chore for me so I have actually been contemplating on taking a break from teaching after this school year. Probably go back to being a full time student, with the hope that it'll bring the fire back in me. Anyway, 'hope you're doing great! Stay happy! (it's all that matters, anyway!)

Elsa - Welcome to blogging! :) Yes, sometimes you will realize that you must live your life with purpose (cliche but true). You have the right to be happy and I pray that you continue to pursue your passion ;)

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 …
