Entries for December, 2017
Yesterday was tough. One more of the 3 officers who were supposed to lead the meeting said he can't come. Luckily, our dear President came and we were back to 3.
Came at the venue realizing we didn't have our things. Just when we needed to attract guests more. Tapos umulan. Sino bang pupunta parin sa meeting kahit umuulan? Tapos nasaken lahat ng remaining gate tickets and a number of raffle tickets I need to sell in just a week. So great.
But then LA came. Then Jolo. Then Jay. Then Jeric. And suddenly, things weren't so bad anymore. Sa tingin ko, ok lang naman mapunta sa mga tough situations as long alam mo na kahit pano, may kasama ka.
During table topics walang nag volunteer so us 3 girl officers ay nag "maiba taya" to pick kung sino mag vo volunteer. Jeez, we're so mature. Lel. Pero ang responsible namin, di ba? In the end, pareparehas kami nag table topics.
Na amaze din ako sa generosity ni LA. I can't thank her enough. As for Jay, I understand why she can't be as giving financially because she has 2 kids to feed, but I love how she more than compensated through service and moral support. The day may be tough but I was so happy and greatful that I was able to share it with these wonderful people.
Mejo masama rin ang loob ko na malaki yung ginastos ko para mameet namin yung consumables. Pero pag nakikita ko si LA na hindi man lang nagreklamo, nahihiya tuloy ako. Lel.
Tough days bring blessings. I can't agree more.
Nakasulat daw sa fabrics ng Universe na the more you give, the more you receive. I pray that LA will be given blessings until it overflows. Especially in health department because she's having it tough on that lately. Siguro sa love life din (ako din po, Lord, please! Lel). I pray the same for Jay and for everyone who responded when I asked them to order more. Tough times bring the best in people and I just realized I am surrounded with the most wonderful ones.
In the end, we survived. Thank You, Heavens.

sabi ng isa sa mga paborito kong bloggers, malalaman mo raw if tama ang decision mo depende sa amount ng peace na nararamdaman mo about it.
hindi na 'ko galit. hindi na rin ako naiinis. sabi nila hindi daw dapat nag de-decide pag ang emotions mo e nasa extreme, and i don't think im on the extreme right now. i think im perfectly chill.
the past few years had been turbulent. full of highs and lows. i think the highest of highs and the lowest of lows happened the last couple of years.
naalala ko yung sabi ni deepak chopra na pag calm daw ang waters, kahit isang pebble lang ang hinagis mo, may effect. Pero pag hindi daw calm, kahit isang empire state building pa daw ang ihagis mo, walang epekto.
a few more weeks and the year will end. i want my 2018 to be a whole lot peaceful than the previous years. the past years, i successfully shook my life. sa 2018, i want to bring back the calm.
five goals lang ang sinulat ko for 2018 and I wrote them in the simplest manner. pero lahat ng yon naka focus lang sa iisang Ultimate Goal. Yes, capital letter talaga yung start.
I remember yang and i were talking about our favorite class in KCON when she told me about Jon Escoto's class. I didn't take that class so I had yang told me about it. yang mentioned about "vortex". eto daw yung something na nagde-drain sayo at sa happiness mo. kailangan mo daw hanapin ang "vortex" mo at unahin to work on resolving that before everything else.
i think i know what my "vortex" is. I think ive known about this all along, pero kasi, pag nakita mo sya as a vortex, mafi-feel mo talaga yung urgency na takpan yung lintek na vortex na yan, para puteeeek, hindi na maubos ang happiness mo, and maybe kabataan mo, in the process.
dun ko gustong mag-focus sa 2018. para magawa ko yun, i need to let go of a few things. this might take a lot of explaining and i hate explaining things. sana maging ok ang lahat.

pick your reason:
1. I am pregnant
2. I am getting married
3. I am migrating to Antarctica
i hate lying, but then sometimes id want to keep the truth to myself. i wish they will just quit asking.
December had just started and i cant wait for it to be over already. 2 more events and im free.
club's yearend party this friday,
then the following friday, ill be meeting meguri and the kids.
then, maybe finally, i can have some peace.
bff will also be going home in rp later this month with her boyfie. she asked me to go to baguio with them and said she'll bring romel along. her moves scream desperate measure of setting her single friends up. smh.
its been a while since bff and i had a heart to heart talk. i havent updated her much about my life. when she went home in time for my birthday, we mostly talked about her new found love life. whenever she asked about how i had been, i kept my answers short and brought the topic back to her. idk. that girl knows me so well. one wrong word and i know she'd see through me.
dont get me wrong, i trust bff with my life. siguro sometimes, no matter how close we are to the person, there are just things that we'd rather keep to ourselves.
isnt it odd how sometimes, the things that affect us the most, we find so hard to talk about?

4 na oras kong tiniis ang wiwi ko para matapos ko yung ginagawa kong online shop. Naalala ko nung una akong nagtayo ng online shop. Akala ko non, mabebenta na parang hotcakes ang paninda ko. 4 failed online businesses later, now i know better. Nakakatakot. Pero at least alam ko sa sarili ko na sinusubukan ko parin.
Maganda ring diversion pag busy. This is the only thing that's keeping me from crying. Pero siguro ang luha na gustong lumabas, dapat pinapalabas. Parang jebs? 2-3 hours ang byahe ko pauwi. Ang hirap maging busy pag nasa loob ka ng bus so mahirap pigilang mag-isip. Ang hirap hindi umiyak. Ang nakakainis sa luha e yung pag may pumatak n na isa, magsusunuran na yung iba. Tas kahit magmakaawa ka na, "tama na please. Awat na," tutulo parin sila. Naiinggit ako sa mga taong pag umiyak e pagkapunas ng luha, parang wala nang nangyari. Hindi kasi ganun saken. Pag umiyak ako, 30 minutes na lumipas, mukha parin akong bagong iyak. Worst part e the following day, mamaga yung mata ko at magmumukha akong frog. Timing, may yearend party kami bukas.
Halfway na ko ng byahe ayaw parin paawat ng mata ko. Unli? Bakit ba ko umiiyak?
I sent my message and was met with silence. It wasn't the first time and I'm not the type who would demand reaction to anyone. I guess what's painful was that I knew that this won't be the last and that maybe this will always be like this from now on. I remembered the louder days. I guess that was what's making me cry. See, I'm crying again. Putek.
I've been in situations way tougher, pero ayoko ng ganito. Tumitiklop talaga ko sa ganito. The last time I felt like this, I left. Hindi ko kasi talaga kaya yung ganito. But i can't leave now. I can't leave prematurely because that would cause suspicions, it might make things worst. I have to stay put for the next three months and it's killing me already.
I already told the Heavens. I've already done everything in my power to fix things. Now, He have to do the rest I guess.
I wish that He will also make me stop crying. I hate how I have so very little control of my tear ducts.

1. I saw people who changed their preferences in their adulthood and dreaded what if this will happen to me too? Not that I have issues with people like this. I just don't want to have a life that complicated. Pero right now, puteeeek, sa landi kong to, I don't think so.
2. I arrived not paying much attention since I was feeling sick. He flashed his signature smile and motioned me to sit beside him. Then, picture time. I couldn't fit in the frame so he grabbed me by the waist, pulling me closer to him.
Oh boy, careful on that side...
3. Yearend party over yet peace is still out of sight. Maybe in a few days.
4. Saw that Fr. Mario is back in RP. He'll probably go back to Italy again so I've got to make the most of his days–hopefully weeks–here. I'll be reserving all my Wednesday for this. Sana nandun sya.
5. Sa tingin ko nagegets ko na kung ano ang problema ko and why I was crying. When I was younger, naisip ko na langing may paraan. Na pag may bagay kang gusto at kung pagsusumikapan mo talaga, makukuha mo. On rare occasions na hindi mo madaan sa effort, meron ka paring isa pang alas; ask the Heavens. Di ba wala namang imposible sa langit? As I grew older, na realize ko na hindi ata ganun. I still believe na walang imposible sa Langit. But when you're an adult, things can be a whole lot complicated. At may mga bagay pala na kahit gusto mo, hindi mo susubukang kunin. At kahit alam mong pwede namang ibigay ng Langit, hindi mo parin hihingin.
6. I'm missing some of my friends na bihira ko nang makita. Neri is one of my favorite friends in this lifetime. Was chatting with her about our all-time favorite topic: boys. I was sending her a picture of some boy that I thought she might find interesting. Nasa bus ako non and I was halfway through writing the caption when, so sobrang likot ng bus, I accidentally sent it to our club officer's group chat. It was a lupa-lamunin-mo-ko moment. Worst part, kilala nila yung boy.
7. I checked my weight at a mall yesterday and found that I'm 10 kilos heavier than I was 4 years ago.
TEN. EFFING. KILOS.
8. Siguro, sa ideal world, makakagawa ako ng 3 speeches in 4 weeks to complete my CC and level 1 before March ends. Nasan ba yang ideal world na yan?
9. Tinatamad akong mag BSP10 ulet.
10. Ok, wala na ko maisip.

"Pag ikaw ang nag recommend ng movie, *&%, pinapanood ko talaga."
This sent my eyebrows flying to the roof. See, I'm a woman too. That can't be entirely innocent. Oh please! Tsk.
Ang daming malandi sa mundo mo, nakakapikon.

Was your Christmas merry?
I spent the last 3 days with headache that my Christmas was just a series of eating and sleeping and eating and sleeping. I think i haven't slept and ate this much in a while. I know that these are just symptoms of the real issue that no one has to know.
Ugh, shoot. My head still hurts.
For the last few years, my usual visitor every Christmas was Ana. One of her 4 children, Mauel, is my inaanak. Today, I had other visitors aside from Ana and her kids: Injan, husband and their baby boy, my inaanak, Xyrus. It sure damaged my wallet to the point that it seems to need a CPR already, but still I was happy I was able to see them.
It's such a huge thing, marriage, building a family, having kids and so on. I've seen how it changed my friends' and my brother's life and it's no where near fancy that's why it buffles me why people are pressuring me to get married when even their own married life doesn't look that much appealing.
But it sure can get lonely though at times. I guess, maybe, we all need to have something that we can call our own. Gaya nung unang beses na nagkaron ako ng cellphone. Mom had a cellphone then that never ran out of load and i can use it anytime. Pero iba parin pag sayo yung phone. Pede mo palitan yung housing. Lagyan ng backlight. Pwede mo ihagis pag feel mo or kaya pag pikon na pikon ka na sa mundo, pwede mong pagbuburahin lahat ng laman ng phonebook mo. Sayo e.
Iba kasi yung sayo.
Sa tingin ko, may namimiss lang akong ilang mga bagay bagay.
I might meet Gabby to work on the club sched a few days from now. Maybe the other officers will be there too. I will be seeing bff and the boyfie soon too. Truth is, I'm not really looking forward to any of these. Kasi kahit na parang hindi mabuti para sa emotional health ko, i think i just want to be alone for now.

Coco's Remember me playing on loop. I didn't know the audio player of my phone has this feature until now. Few days since I watched it and i want to watch it again. Ang ganda ng coco. May kakaiba pa syang "aftertaste". Lalong gumaganda sa memory mo after mo mapanuod, ganun. Or is it just me?
May way ba na naka loop e 2 songs? Gusto ko rin kasi yung Un poco loco. Bale Remember me tas Un poco loco on loop. Pwede ba sa audio player ng android yun? Any techies here? : )
Hermit mode on. Truth is, i don't really want to watch too much movies/series because I feel like these are killing my braincells, but that's the only way I can block the outside world–having my headphones on with the volume turned up. Wala naman akong issue sa mga taong kasama ko. I just need peace. Yun lang naman. Ang antisocial ko no?
I don't know why I'm this withdrawn lately. PMS?
MMFF started. I'd love to watch it 8/8 pero kasi, una, wala akong pera. Pangalawa, parang ayoko ng vic sotto at vice ganda, no offense. For sure pinaghirapan naman un ng mga gumawa ng film, mejo nauumay lang ako kasi lagi nalang sila.
Kahit wala akong pera panonoorin ko yung Larawan. Nakita ko ung trailer nung nanood ako ng Coco. Mukhang promising. I need to hurry up though kasi sabi nila ipu pull out na raw kasi hindi kumikita. Bakit kaya wala pang say si Heneral about this? Huhu. I hope more people will watch this soon. Sana talaga maabutan ko.
Gusto ko rin panoorin yung 5 pang iba. Bale 6 panonoorin ko. I'm trying to convince Dad na ilibre ako. Hehe. Sighs, why am I so poor? Lol.
I want to change things sa 2018. Alam ko, wala narin akong masyado choice talaga.
Oh Lord, help me.
