I woke up early this evening from nap to find about 15 missed calls from family. My maternal grandmother, who has been confined in the hospital since last week, has passed away peacefully this afternoon. She was 89 years old. Right now, I cannot still fully grasp the news. I guess growing up seeing and watching my Lola bounce back from everything, I was expecting her to bounce back to good health this time, too. But even the fact that she was no longer as strong as she was, I was actually hoping that we will get to see her and spend […]
September is usually the busiest month that we have at work. I used to enjoy it. The long work hours, getting overloaded with tasks with short deadlines, trying to finish everything before the month ends. I used to get an adrenaline rush just anticipating the work load that I would have. Some would actually say that I was a masochist back in those days when it comes to work. It never really bothered me. I lived for that kind of environment.
It felt like the start of the month just yesterday. Now, we are midway done with the month. Where did all those days go? For some reason, I find this year to have gone by in a weird manner. Some days went by so fast, some days were too slow. And without realizing it, here we are, the first of the BER months. We’re still about 3 months away from Christmas and yet radio stations are already playing Christmas songs, even malls blast Christmas songs through their sound systems. Christmas decors are now being sold everywhere. Early Christmas shopping sales are […]
It’s the 4th of the month on this side of the world but what the heck. Hello, birth month! I hope you be gentle to me this month.. Oh, give the same heads up to August, too. 😛
It’s already the eleventh month of the year. And I have just glanced at my system calendar and I am reminded of this line – “remember, remember, the 5th of November”. Yep, it’s already the 5th of November this side of the world. Seriously, where has time gone? Why so fast? This post is just going to be some babble from me. It’s already past 5AM here but I have just gotten comfortable in my bed as I type this. I should be sleeping, I know. I guess I just wanted to drop a quick post before I lose it […]
Yep, I am still here. Haha! Geez, I haven’t realized that it has been more than a month since my last post. Where did all those time go? Anyway, I am just dropping by (yes, I am dropping by my own blog, yeesh) just to say I am still alive and very much kicking. LOL! It has been a very busy time these past few weeks and I will be sharing some of the things that have kept me busy in the next coming weeks. I will definitely make time to blog, I promise. Well, apart from being busy with stuff, […]
I’ve been stressing myself out for the past few months now, it seems. Small, irrelevant things that I shouldn’t be giving the time of day but for some reason, those small stuff occupied a large part of my daily thoughts. I’ve been out of focus, not at-par with my standard in terms of my job performance (I deliver somehow, but I am not satisfied with how I’ve done it), I’ve been procrastinating on some things, and my writing sucks for quite some time. (Yep, I kinda noticed that). Breathe-in-breathe-out technique sometimes doesn’t do its job any longer. It seems that […]
Today is fathers’ day. Before anything else, let me greet all fathers out there a Happy Fathers’ Day. I know your children are honored to have you as their father and wouldn’t trade you for anyone else. May you continue to be the best father that you ought to be to your children.
Like I said, today is fathers’ day. It used to be a fun occasion for me, except for two years now, it has become a bittersweet day for two reasons:
Before anything else, let me write my disclaimer down: This post is not meant to insult any religion, belief or faith nor do I intend to insult anyone. I am merely writing down my thoughts on what I know is a very sensitive topic for the majority of the people who might get to read this. I am not trying to look down at anything or even trying to be superior in terms of beliefs over anyone else’s. I would just like to “think out loud”, to simply put, in the hopes that maybe, there will be some readers out there who […]
And here I am on the last day of my gratitude series. 🙂 To be honest, this activity is starting to make me see things through a different perspective. Though there are days that are not going as good as we expected, there is still that little thing that we can be thankful for. Having a thankful heart will actually do good for us. Makes it easier to let go of stressful situations, too. 🙂 Anyway, it is such a great timing to end this today as I am celebrating a milestone of my own. Today marks my 8th year […]
