Busy Days & Missing You

I'm in the middle of a weird situation because I'm currently being OIC to a position I'm not so familiar with and it has taken a lot of my time since I started.

Right now I barely check my email, I can hardly post an entry here in my blog, and almost every night since last Thursday (except of course Sunday), I have been going home at almost 9 in the evening, and I can be seen in the office as early as 7:45 am... Huhuhu, I can't have enough sleep anymore and I really had to cut short some of my dreams because I need to be in the office so early.

Although the work is a little challenging, and I really like it, it's quite a responsibility and I always pray for guidance and sincerity of heart & mind. I also pray for strength & gentleness because in this field, I get to interact wiht different people, and I surely have to be a little gentle to all because the reputation of the company can get affected also if I won't be careful.

Hmm, anyway, I still managed to …

Pirates and a Bear

Took a leave of absence yesterday, June 12, so that I can catch more on my dear sleep because I have been feeling a little weak in past few days, for which I can hardly find an explanation except for maybe I lack my favorite thing, sleep.

So I overslept, of course, to my delight. And decided, when I finally woke up at about 12+, to just go out and buy myself lunch - no shower, no combing of hair, etc. Fresh out of bed, hehehe.. And to my surprise, {well it's not really surprising, Thanks Papa Bear!because we're neighbors} I saw papa bear there in the carenderia [a small yet convenient place to eat or buy food located just outside or near your house].

{For those who do not know who papa bear is, you can check my friendster account if you have access to it, or maybe just ask me who on earth is papa bear, ok?}

Papa bear is actually one of the very few people who saw, and may probably continue to see, how I look when I just happened to get out of bed - when I haven't taken a sho…

Independence Day

Enjoy your weekend and holiday!

Good Morning... *Sniff*

I'm in the office right now, had my breakfast, the usual soymilk & meat roll.

But while I was checking on my friendster account, I just started sneezing. And when I start to sneeze, it usually takes about 4-5 sneezes before it actually stops! And now my nose is a little runny, and I'm sniffing away... :(

Anyway... I woke up a tad bit early, but I didn't actually pull my self from bed until it was already 7.30... hehe, the effect? Still the same... early rise or not... hehe!

So here I am again, posting away in my blog, my one and only confidant during this times... But as much as I wanted to put every sneaky detail of my thoughts & experiences, I can't & I won't because that would actually expose some of the people involved, and I actually don't want to do that. Besides, I'm amused by how some readers react - some of them even ask me in person if the post was about them or whether or not they were the ones I was talking about.…

Answered Prayer

Found this, thought it was nice...


Butterfly Kisses

Image
Every time I hear this song, and I mean EVERY TIME, I always grow teary-eyed and eventually, really feel the tears trickling down my face... I don't know exactly why, but from the very first time I heard this song, I thing we were walking somewhere and we passed by this house that was playing their radio really very loudly and this song was playing. I asked my companion to stop walking because I wanted to listen to the song, and since then, every time I hear it, it just has this profound effect on me that it just makes me cry...

So here it is, Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle.



Lyrics:

There's two things I know for sure.
She was sent here from heaven, and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night, she talks to Jesus, and I close my
eyes.
And I thank God for all the joy in my life,
Oh, but most of all, for...

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk beside the pony, daddy, it's my first ri…

Ok, Fine...

I have no idea what I'm thinking about right now, I just can't believe I even wasted time trying to think. Hmmm, I should have listened to my instinct and instead stopped my brain from its activities.

Ok, I don't even know if I'm actually making any sense to you all right now. I might be the only person who understands this post. But what the heck, it's my darn blog!

Anyway, again, I just wished I didn't try to think, I wish I never thought about anything because in the end, it just ruins my brain wavelength. And my brain now have this uncanny yet stupid habit of being disgruntled and uncoordinated when my wavelength is disrupted. Oh God, what the hell?!

So I try to stop thinking but I end up thinking why I'm trying to stop myself from thinking, isn't that ridiculous? All I want is peace of mind, some quiet time without thoughts or feelings, without disruptions. But the thing is, a person can only achieve that when he/she is dead! So the solution? Kill Mys…

Lyrics:

Mockingbird (eminem)

well i know sometimes things may not always make sense to you right now
But hey, what daddy always tell you? Straighten up little' soldier.
Stiffing up that upper lip.
What you crying' bout?
You got me

[ Verse 1 ]


Halie I know you miss your mom
And I know you miss your dad when I'm gone
But I'm trying to give you the life that I never had Everything always happens for a reason
I can see you're sad
Even when you smile
Even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes
Deep inside, you wanna cry
'cause you're scared
I ain't there?
Daddy's with you in your prayers
No more crying
Wipe them tears
Daddy's here
No more nightmares
We gonna pull together through it
We gonna' do it
Lanie, uncle's crazy ain't he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
We're all we got in this world
When it spins
When it swirls
Wh…

Sleepiest Person in the World

Image
That can actually be me... hehehe!

I am so darn sleepy right now, I think I can handle sleeping for 24 hours straight! Really!

I think it's because I slept late last night, more or less it was already 1 in the morning. I think I just had a lot of things to think about. A LOT of THINGS.... {and you know why...}

Anyway, so I'm here in the office right now, it's half past 2 pm and I'm still trying to steadily push my back up so I can sit straight and at least alleviate a little of the sleepiness that's in my system right now...And I'm wishing with all my heart that the President gets a headache and declares tomorrow and saturday non-working holidays also... That'll be a blast! Hehe! I even declined a friend who wanted to go out on Sunday just to watch a movie and roam around the malls because I really want to savor the day-off and just feel like resting and moping in my room, watching tv, taking glorious naps, being with mnyself and also to stop thinking for a …

Weak and Sleepy

Image
How I wish I can have this soon! It's so cute!





I actually have a happy thought today, well actually, it kinda hit me last night. It's going to be a non-working holiday on Monday, that is June 11, instead of June 12 (the Philippine Independence Day) by virtue of Proclamation No. 1211. I'm supposed to be really happy because of an additional day off, but I dunno, I don't quite feel ecstatic about it.

Anyway, I feel weak and sleepy today. I woke up really late, like 8am, so of course I was late for office. And when I arrived, my eyes were so heavy I could've dozed off while facing my computer!

*Yawn* I'm still sleepy right now even after a can of Coke and lunch. I even put some chili on my viand in hope that it will give me a little boost. But all has failed. Hmmm... So I just decided to post something, at least it can give my brain cells a workout.

I'm listening to an online broadcast of a local radio station, and it's playing one of the songs that I've…

Desiderata

We were in a department store yesterday at about lunch time looking for frames, and Badz showed me a frame that contained one of his favorite poems ever, the Desiderata.

{Badz, naa na diay nag claim sa authorship ani oy, Max Ehrmann... :)}

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrenderWith all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;

Someone who Doesn't Exist

Image
Someone who’ll accept me as I am, no pretensions, no changes in behavior, no changes in attitudes or personality, just as I am when I’d first meet him;

Someone who’ll accept my family as it is;

Someone who’ll accept and love my friends as they are, someone who’ll not make me stay away from my friends;

Someone who’ll understand the nature of my work and my relationships with other people and how I deal with myself, my family, my friends, my problems and blessings, how my work affects my lifestyle and my life, someone who’ll understand and support me no matter what;

Someone who’ll make me laugh when I’m happy, when I’m sad and on the verge of crying;

Someone who’ll comfort me and soothe my emotions when I’m angry or frustrated or just not in the mood to laugh;

Someone who’ll bring the smile back to my lips;

Someone who’ll tickle me until I cry because of laughing;

Someone who’ll say I’m beautiful even if I just woke up and still wearing my pajamas and haven’t brushed my teeth; someone who’ll…

Someone Like You - the Theory

Image
Have you seen this movie already? I know, some might find the title whimsical because it’s a comedy love story thing, but for people like me, especially us girls, we’d really learn a thing or two about why men behave a certain way in their relationships with women.

So here’s the catch, the story goes like this girl, Jane, played by Ashley Judd, falls for the boyfriend of their boss, he’s named Ray in the movie. So they have an affair going on until the guy says the “I love you” phrase. It turns Jane’s world upside down and of course believes that everything will work out just fine because Ray loves her. So they go about planning to move in together and look for the perfect apartment to move into. Ray says he’ll tell Diane (their boss and Ray’s girlfriend) about them so that they can end their relationship and then he and Jane can go on with theirs.

Jane arranges everything: she tells her landlord that she’s moving out, and so her apartment gets re-rented even before she’s gone, so that …

Grrrrhhh.... It's Cold!

I came into the office at about 11am, came from the CIA (Certified Internal Auditor) Exam Orientation in the Aboitiz Training Center in Banilad. Unfortunately, although the topic was interesting, and should have brought a different kind of excitement for me, I just was so sleepy I almost dozed off while sitting right in front of the speaker. Goodness... I slept late last night, think it was already past 1am.

Anyway, I got to hear and digest some juicy info from the said orientation and learned that so far there are about 50,000 CIA's around the world, and only about 700 of which are Filipinos. And the resource speaker isn't quite sure how many of the 700 are still alive...

So that means, mga Pinoy, that we are really world class people and we should be proud of it! The Philippines actually has on of the highest passing rates in the CIA Exams and so far, we have been consistent in being included in the topnotchers... Cool, huh? The national passing percentage last year was 30%, a…

In a Rush

Image
I'm in a rush in the office today, something came up which I was told to make a report on and the report is needed to be released by this afternoon, and my darn head is aching right now, and my eyes are a bot blurry. Think I may have slept a little early than usual, and it sort of screwed up my system for today.

Anyway, I had breakfast, "puto" and Chuckie, and I'm now chewing on a gum just to keep me awake and keep my other body parts busy... :)

So when I thought of the post title "In a Rush", I suddenly remembered this song I liked and decided to post the lyrics and included an mp3 file so that you can listen to it also... ;)

IN A RUSH (by Blackstreet)

It came over me in a rush
when I realized that i love you so much
that sometimes i cry
but I cant tell you why
why I feel what i feel inside

how I try to express
whats been troublin' my mind
but still I cant find the words
but I know that somethings got a hold of me

It came over me in a rush
when I realized that i…
