"The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love,
and to let it come in."

- Morrie Schwartz
(Tuesdays with Morrie)

All Alone

Yesterday was not a very good day to me. I had lots of problems and I had a hard time getting through the whole day. I felt like I'm the only person in the world. Spending time at the park made me feel a lot better. It made me think and realize things. I wanted to spend the day with someone. I badly needed a hug. But I have no one to turn to that time. I guess I could only be the one I can turn to or comfort myself. This is reality. This is the real world. Its so sad that the world become such a cruel place to live in.

Last night, some of my friends cheered me up and I would like to thank them for listening and being there for me. It did helped a lot. It made me feel a lot better.
Thank you for making me smile..

Quote of the day 18

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

It's an enigma when you fail in love and accept that some good things never last...
suddenly you'll begin to see yourself as nothing... it's an agony to accept that despite the feelings you have, it's all not enough but when you love someone, you would do the hardest thing... and yes it's not going to be easy, but at least you know that what you felt was REAL..

In the end, you'll ask yourself "does it hurt?" then you'll close your eyes and whisper..
"its worth it.."

Quote of the day 17

I was told not to hurt the heart of whom I love so much...
but when I was so busy taking care of that heart..
I never noticed..

My own was slowly dying..

Quote of the day 16

Apology can never bring back the tears that had fallen.
It can't even let you forget the pain that you've felt
but it surely refreshes a wounded pride and relationship

A sad feeling.

I am feeling a little weird lately. All of the things and people that I love are too far away. I feel betrayed. Do I trust them too much that it lead to this?

I am feeling so alone. I wish I could find someone to understand and listen to me or just stand by my side..

Quote of the day 15

I had let go of what I thought I owned...
It hurts, yes..
A lot actually..

but getting through each day made me realize that the world will just keep on turning...
and I have to continue breathing even if he's not around..

so I have to move on..
face the world after he stepped on it..
and prove that I can be better than what he used to see in me.

People are so Pathetic

The whole morning was a mess. I've been hearing rumors about my friend who is spreading false statements. I guess she didn't realize that I'll know about it. It was so pathetic. Her actions was so weak and immature. Just because I was too busy to help her one time, and ALL I GET IS THIS? WTF! Is that her basis of a friendship? She's now ruining my good relationship with our other friends. I want to hate her.. but the more I think of it. I pity her for her poor actions. If she has issues with me, then go talk straight to me. I am not going to hurt you. Err.. why do people like this exist? They are parasites, they are only they when they need you but if they're done with you they'll just leave you alone plus they'll throw bad rumors about you. Nice one! But I am not affected. Stop it before it gets back on you...

Nobody wants to hear this but sometimes...
the person you want the most;

is the person that you're better off without

The Call

Sunday, June 22, 2008



The call
By: Regina Spektor

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder
Til it was a battle cry

I'll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye

Just because everything's changing
Doesn't mean it's never
Been this way before

All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are
As you head off to the war

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light

You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye

You'll come back
When it's over
No need to say good bye..

Now we're back to the beginning
It's just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can't feel it too
Doesn't mean that you have to forget

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
Til they're before your eyes

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

You'll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye..

Terrible Thoughts

I've been thinking a lot lately. I wanted to find a new job. I'm not happy with my work anymore. My boss have favoritisms and he's just unfair at all times. I don't want to leave because of my friends there but my future will be stucked on a company who does not see my potentials. What should I do? I know my mom will be disappointed if I lose my job. She won't understand. Err.. how I wish things could go on nicely.

Quote of the day 13

Thursday, June 12, 2008

A philosophy professor gave one question for the final exam. He stood in front , touched his chair and asked: " using everything we've learned this semester, prove to me that this CHAIR DO NOT EXIST." The class finished over an hour but the student who's known for having low IQ, finished the exam for less than 1 minute. One week later, the results were posted on the board and the student who's known for being stupid got the highest. His answer consisted with just two words. "WHAT CHAIR?"

Moral: Do not over analyze or complicate things. Simplify and be happy!

Missin' him

I woke up this morning not feeling well, but what can I do? I have to go to the office to work. I had a very rough morning. Still thinking about the argument that happened the night before. I wasn't able to sleep well so I was a bit sleepy when I went to the office.

The morning training went okay until noon. We had the chance to exchange messages but it didn't go on so well.. I wish every thing's gonna be fine. I am scared because he's always telling me that one day if we're always like that.. he will leave me. I fear for that day to come. I just want to love him forever. I want to take good care of him.. but it seems like he's more into his friends. I know he should have the life but what about my happiness.. all i want is to see him.

I miss him so much...

Quote of the day 13

Philosophical Definition of Love:
"Love doesn't need dates, treats, gifts, money, or extreme kissing to realize that you're finally in Love. It only needs the COMFORT AND SECURITY OF HAVING A LIFETIME FRIEND IN THE PERSON despite all the consequences, the feeling DOES NOT die, instead it grows stronger, it must be it.."

Boring Day!

Good morning!

I am now at the office and I am feeling so bored. We don't have a training this morning because the training room is being used by the HR for the New Hire's Orientation.

*Yawn* I am sitting in front of my laptop trying to read my module but I couldn't concentrate. waaah! ano bang nangyayari saken? huhu I'm missing my boyfriend. I wanted to watch him sleep again. I want to hear his soft snores. I want to whisper on his ears and I want to hear how he sleepily replies on the things that I say.

Err.. I got to get back and focus. I'll try to post something later..

June 1, the first day of the month

Hey! Its June 1 and its the first day of the month. I am feeling lazy to get up this morning because I lack of sleep. I wanted to rest but my mind won't allow me to.

When I got out of the bed, I hurriedly ate my breakfast and read a few chapters of my module ( I am studying PeopleSoft for work). After a couple of hours, my boyfriend and I had a small talk. Then its lunch time! We had Caldereta and Lumpiang gulay. Yummy noh? haha

The whole afternoon, I've been spending time chatting with my dad and boyfriend in YM. Well, as of now, I am watching my boyfriend sleep while im typing this..

Till next time..

Missin' my blog

I've been missing a lot lately since I started working. I am becoming a different person. I feel less time for me and my love ones but what can I do? This is part of the real world now. I hope that I could play everything right.

I miss blogging a lot. I wanted to share my daily experiences with you. Share the good memories that should be cherished and just a simple day at work.

I miss cooking too. I miss the feeling on how I can make other people smile with the dishes that I cook.

I miss spending time with myself.. fooling around and doing nothing at all.

I miss going out with my good old friends but they're all busy now.

oh, i hate this feeling of being lonely...

Always be My Baby

Always be My Baby
by: David Cook



We were as one babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine

Now you want to be free
So I'm letting you fly
Cause I know in my heart babe
Our love will never die

You'll always be a part of me
I'm a part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby

I ain't gonna cry no
And I won't beg you to stay
If you're determined to leave girl
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably you'll be back again
Cause ya know in your heart babe
Our love will never end no

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby

I know that you'll be back girl
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder oooohhh
I know that, you'll be right back, babe
Ooooh! baby believe me it's only a matter of time

You'll always be apart of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my my baby....

You'll always be apart of me (you will always be)

Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby

Quote of the day 09

" Don't miss the chances that life is giving you to spend with people you value the most...

Remember, there are no REWINDS"

-Adam Sandler

-------------------------
I totally agree with this, if we value our love ones. We should show them how much we care before its too late. Sometimes the little small things that we do mean a lot to other people.
