I smile at how things have changed.

Look who's back!
No more graduate studies to fill my schedule! I can now go back to writing on this long, forgotten blog. I miss it!
Hopefully, I can write way better than before.

Everyone can afford travelling nowadays. Many airlines have promotions and seat sales from time to time. It can get as cheap as a few dimes on some rare occasions. I guess many people have been bitten by the travel bug. It's a good thing because it stimulates the economy.
I love to travel, too. In fact, I decide my domestic and international travel schedule as early as possible to save for the expenses will be incurred during these trips. I'd love to travel with style, too, you know.
One thing I have learned about my recent experiences is that it is better to travel light. Airports are such big places to get lost in and if one has so many luggages, it's hard to maneuver his/her way out.
It is also very important to invest in good quality luggage sets. I especially like my trolley to have at least four wheels so I can just twist and turn it wherever I want it to regardless of its weight. Even a plus if your luggage sets are as stylish as Tumi Luggage and Briggs and Riley Luggage. Most people have black suitcases so why not opt for more colorful or decorated ones, they're much easier to spot on the conveyor belt.
If traveling internationally, it is also important to keep the necessary documentations handy like passport or visa, tourist permit, among others to avoid being arrested or questioned by immigration police. Cash and credit cards should be readily available to, and as much as possible, convert to the country's local currency before departure or to US dollars which is standard exchange currency.
Importantly, a traveler should have presence of mind during the whole journey so he/she can keep watch on his/her belongings and not fall prey to robbers/tricksters and to reach the destination and return home safely.

To kill time, out of boredom, people watch movies.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Many people say Math is difficult yet many others say it is easy.
- attitude or mentality - Math is what one thinks it is. If one thinks it's hard to understand, it really is.
- teachers - they are either too intelligent to understand student's difficulty in the subject or know too little to explain/simplify it
- not doing homework/practice exercises - one becomes skillful at doing something by constantly practicing so if one does not do any exercises, it's hard to master Mathematics
- refusing to seek help/get a tutor who can supplement and explain what are learned at school.

How long have I been away?
Friday, March 19, 2010
Everything seems peaceful and quiet now but my mind is far from that. It's so chaotic there and i am so disturbed by so many things. I am not worried. It's not anxiety. It's not stress. There are just too many things running through my head for the past few weeks or who knows it might have been going on for months!
I hope that explains my absence and non-activity on this blog.
It's as if I were frozen and could not move. Somebody please tell me that it's over and I can move on...

Have you ever felt like you were in a rut and everything you're doing doesn't seem enjoyable anymore? It has all become a routine and not as exciting as before.
This has been how I was feeling for sometime now. The need to work hard and earn made me numb. I was just doing things because I have to and I need to and not because I love to. Just like a lost love, I need to find a way to rekindle the tender feelings I have with regards to my work and study. I have to choose to love doing them everyday - a decision I need to make.
So here I go again, with a renewed sense of commitment, gladly say, I'll do my best to learn, work and be what God wants me to be.

I guess it's time to stop writing
Words don't flow as smoothly as before
No matter how I pounce my head
Nothing ever comes out
My words have become plain
Thoughts have lost their luster
There's nothing new nor helpful that I can say
I might just have to let it go
I've lost touch with the friends I've had through blogging
I've lost touch with my inner self who used to be eager to share her soul
I am hanging nowhere
I want to write but I can't anymore
My sister and her family of five are spending the summer vacation at my parents' house from March 23 until the start of the new school year in June. I just booked their plane tickets and the kids are so excited to invade Davao city again. My parents are also so eager to meet for the first time the cute little baby girl that my sister gave birth to last year. My sister from Bangkok is going home, too. It's going to be a big family reunion! And my other sister and her family of four might join us as well.
Now this troubles my mother because there are only three rooms in our house. There will be three school children, one toddler, two infants, three couples which includes my parents, me and my other sibling who's still single.
Our home is not enough to accommodate this big number and the kids will be in riot because of limited space. So my mother and I have been thinking of renovating our house to reconstruct the second floor.
To save space, I've been contemplating on making wooden lockers as part of the walls in-built in each room. There should be a locker in the kitchen and one in the living room. I've been buying cabinets and they're still not enough for everything. Then, there must be lockers everywhere.
I guess that's all I can ask. After all, we couldn't afford to have everything so convenient in a very limited time.
I am excited for the reunion and the whole-new house. I hope so.

How time flies so fast!
Yesterday marks my second year in RareJob, an online school where I have been teaching and meeting Japanese people.
Eight more weeks to go before my first semester as a graduate school student at UPOU ends.
Seven months more, I'll be celebrating my silver year in this world.
A year and a few months later, I'll be married.
Thank God for new milestones everyday and for His promises.

Last year, I've been telling myself to start working out this year. I've visited the nearest health club. It's too quiet and no one seems to be going there anyway, except the person in-charge. So, I must resolve to work on my own at home. Well, good luck to me.
Aside from working out at least twice a week, here are my other health-related targets for this year:
1. Don't forget to drink my vitamins so they don't just expire.
2. Sleep immediately after midnight - that's after I finish doing my part-time job at night.
3. Eat less junk food and minimize eating out at fast-food chains.
4. Brush and floss more thoroughly.
5. Get more sunshine early in the morning.
Hurray! There you have it. These are just some of my goals related to fitness for this year. Wish me luck.
How about you? What are your health-related resolutions for this year?

A new year has come but I'm still my own self - too lazy to write a new post. I'm too scared to open this blog because it's been neglected for more than a month. Maybe the statistics has dropped significantly or no one is ever visiting this anymore?
Well, it's time to bounce back and starting hitting that publish button again.
I wish I had the same drive back then when I was still starting out.
