just for now

Hmm.. I’m still awake! I’ve figured out that people who sleep late are likely having several stuff going on in his mind (like, problems.. and stuff). In my case, one of the ways that I do when I don’t get to sleep immediately is to think some thing. Haha, weird huh? It’s like inception — going through that thing until I’m so deep, and then next thing I know I’m asleep. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

I've come a long way...

Well, it’s the third day today since I started not to log on at Facebook. Is it because of the issue of spams all around the network? Hmm, kind of. But then, I really decided to try not to be active for a day or two (I’m sure this blog is posted at my wall– it’s automatic!).

For the past two days, I’ve managed to reach the Gospel of Mark, and finished it that very same day. I give all the glory to God :) The next few hours, I’m gonna be at my school (again, for the 3rd time ~), all for the sake of my OJT requirements.

For the past days that I’ve not been active, I tried being social at Google+. I have 10 contacts. They have games, also, and cool features like the YouTube strip (I don’t know what it’s called) where you can automatically search and watch videos without adding another tab, … I suppose people are thinking they need a Gmail account to log in, but no, any email account will do :D

For the past days also, I’ve realized that even though I’m out of the FB world (for the meantime), it’s still the same– I’m still sleeping hours after midnight. But with less worries of pending notifications :P

It’s really a trial. I think we can all live even without Facebook. And I’m still not enticed to local telecom’s commercials here about having postpaid accounts just to be active nearly forever.

Wait. No, I’m not a Facebook-hater. I’m just trying to be away from all its online ruckus. There’s so much thing to do, to learn, and to unlearn!

to be continued…

Baggage

During the first semester of my senior year, there were “slack-off days” – went home after school and just watched TV while lying on my bed (Ah, those were the days). During those times I really missed watching the local afternoon news and the other primetime shows available in our cable TV. How I Met Your Mother was up at that time. I wasn’t really into American sitcoms, but I tried to watch it because the title was intriguing. (I have read the storyline before in Wikipedia… haha mahilig talaga akong magcheck doon of things like shows or movies I’m curious about without the need to watch or see them first.) Well you can read about it here.

There’s this one episode, where Ted (the main character) is dating a new girl, and is searching for a “baggage” in her. He believes that how seemingly perfect a girl is (or a person), there will still some problems that will come out eventually. One of his friends tells him to just look way past it since everyone has baggage. Another points out that someone who has it doesn’t mean she isn’t date-able. Ted recalls the last time he looked past a girl’s baggage was with his former fiancee.

Ted reacting "violently" to the movie..

While seeing a new movie called The Wedding Bride with his date, Ted shockingly realizes it’s about him and his relationship with Stella, who left him on their wedding day and went to Shelter Island with her ex, Tony. Well the movie is barely truthful to the real accounts (it’s directed by Tony himself) and has given Ted a negative shade. People love the film, but not Ted of course. It only brings back all the painful memories and the fact that how hard he tries to hide what happened before, it will all come out. Eventually he discovers that he’s the one who has the baggage problem. Continue reading

vacation?

When the JIL 33rd Anniversary (and my OJT) was over, I thought to myself, Salamat, I could have a real rest and vacation now. I could enjoy the remaining days of my sem break (that day signaled the start of my real sem break). But then again, there’s another event coming. For three days. Continue reading
