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

House needs to be redesigned, reconstructed

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.

Design of locker

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.

It would also be nice to have the house carpeted from all corners so we don't have to worry about the kids stumbling or falling.

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.

New Year's health Goals

Monday, January 18, 2010

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?

First post for the new year

Sunday, January 17, 2010

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.
