Day 1 Again

,

Sitting and waiting. That’s what I’m doing with my co GIPs right now. Clad in blue shirt, I am now officially under the wage system of another city. This is what I’ve told you — the 20-day stepping stone to my ultimate goal. I just hope, this one goes faster that the last one because to tell you the truth, I was quite disappointed to  undergo this again, but you know what I say, you are where you are supposed to be, and that’s fine with me.

I remember the last time went to GIP — come on now, you know this story — it was what..3 years ago (yikes!), when I met with amazing and inspirational people, and I met The Boyfriend of course. There were so much activities that everything went too fast. I wonder what we’ll do this time as I’ve told it’s mostly office work.
I’m on the 21st floor of this building and to tell you the truth I am so amazed by this city, seeing its central brain made me amazed so much more. It was clean, first and foremost, and it was obviously organized. I wonder what’s the difference in running the two cities that this one’s way ahead of us. Really, what’s the difference? Seeing all these, to tell you the truth makes me want to vote for him as a President. Oops, already guessed where I am?

One thing’s still not changed though — Filipino time.
Sitting and waiting. Still.

Time check: It’s 10:23 am.
Here’s a fact: I judge an establishment by their restrooms. Doesn’t matter if you have walls made of gold nuggets, if your restrooms are filthy, your establishment is filthy.
The building’s restroom ladies and gentleman is divine. Everything’s working, automatic flush and faucets, with available soap in the soap dispenser and there were tissues. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was hand sanitizer and lotion in there.

I wonder if even the other restrooms of the building is the same..

Changes at Last

I haven’t updated for a while now, and the reason being is that I believe in optimism and positivity. Lately, my activities — work, health plans, 100 happy days challenge —  were put on hold so I had nothing to write about, aside from being happy that I’m still alive, and every time I try to start writing, depression starts to swell up so I just close my WordPress.

What have I been doing with my free time? Aside from singing and voice training occasionally, I have also revisited writing stories. My Wattpad went active again and more than that, I started making book covers for other users, which I have now learned is my stress reliever. I feel better when I can do creative things and produce something beautiful. My writing has also helped me release depression and bite away time other that help my dried well of imagination produce creative juices again. So I am happy with all of that.

My health plans are getting stagnant again as I have fallen of the wagon. I badly need a workout buddy and get inspired. Inspiration is not the problem actually, my problem is motivation. I get motivated in bursts, then it dies out. I wonder if I would ever, ever get out of this cycle. I’m starting to take charge again.

I have a new activity coming for 20 days which I am looking forward to because after that, I might have a job! Yay me! And after that, plan A and plan B might get started too so I am looking forward to that. The Boyfriend has a new job now too so I am very happy that his plans are starting to materialize too. It has been a hard four months for the both of us because we both had ended our job contracts at the same time, that means we went bankrupt.
But! Now, things are starting to take shape again and I hope these blessings will get the ball rolling.

I’m also planning to enroll to a driving school here in Manila, and was searching for good schools. SMART driving school was on the top of my list now so I think I would try that. Wish me luck on that one.

What else..

I think that’s it for now. It’s 3:12am and I should probably get going. Problem is, I woke up at 7pm yesterday so sleep is the last thing on my mind.

I’ll probably be writing on Wattpad till I get sleepy.

Updates next time.

How I Met Your Mother Finale Review

If I’m not mistaken, my sister introduced to me the series “How I Met Your Mother”. We had marathons every night just to catch up with the episodes. And now, the series had finally ended, and the fandom had finally made their last laugh with Ted, Lily, Marshall, Barney and Robin.

What can I say? In a nutshell, I’d say..

I know a lot of people had already told their sides and I know that a lot of people (in my timeline at least) are disappointed. So before I had even watched the finale, I was continuously examining what I feel. I know you’ve already read a lot of negative comments and reviews and for me, our world has enough negativity already, so I’d list down the things I LOVED and LEARNED from the season finale of How I Met Your Mother.

1. Ted and Tracy. The whole comedy series was rotating about this one single scene of how they finally met, and I wasn’t disappointed. Sometimes, things doesn’t have to be as loud and obvious to be amazing. The way they looked at each other was magical, a split second awakening that really had an impact on me because words weren’t needed, nothing was supplied but those looks in their eyes were enough, as if saying I’d been through a lot of crappy relationship and I almost gave up, but here you are. Hey, I finally found you. It doesn’t matter where or when or how. When it happens, it happens.

2. Tracy’s death. Shit happens. Even to comedy series’ main characters — and that tells us life. It’s crazy, it’s funny, it’s vicious, sometimes you get things, then you lose them, and there are crappy beginnings, crappy middles and amazing endings and there are amazing beginnings and middles and crappy endings — and that tells us life. If you think about it, Ted and Tracy had their time together and was blessed with two kids. Albeit unmarried at first, they had never left each other, and that again is another reality. You don’t have to be married to stick together, you can have a happy, healthy relationship because you continually choose to have it. And death, death doesn’t end love. Death doesn’t mean you get forgotten or get replaced. You will still remain in the hearts of every people you have touched (and yes, I meant us, viewers.)

3. Ted and Robin. I liked them, they were amazing together, but then they wanted us to move on and I did. And now, they’re back together again. Ted and Tracy was perfect together, like a mesmerizing weaving. And nothing could replace that AND I know that the makers, wasn’t hinting on that either. It just means that people’s hearts get broken all the time and there’s no reason to stay broken. People can move on and make themselves happy again. Ted and Robin were a perfect fit, and Ted had always been in love with Robin someway or another and it was just right that they fall back to each other because friendship last longer than romance and love. And that’s what makes them special too.

4. Robin and Barney. Next to Lilypad and Marshmallows I wanted to have Robin and Barney’s relationship. But not all fun relationships and cute wedding proposals end cute and fun – some just end. And also, it shows that ex’s don’t really remain friends, they will eventually drift apart with time. And people, they never change, they just choose what character to show or suppress at one moment — no matter how short or long, but they’re still in there.

5. Barney’s Baby – It was the perfect karma to his playboy life. Getting a total stranger impregnated, something he is gravely afraid of, next to crumpling his suit. It teaches girls to NOT make it your personal goal to change the man you love. He will change on his own, and this change for Barney — having a daughter, will be more permanent. And also, Barney will be truly complete now.

6. Lily and Marshal – They were the rock and conscience of everybody. They are the small beacon of hope, and I love them! Their story shows that some puppy love can sustain itself into a healthy marriage.

And that’s what I think. It might be a very bad ending to some, but it has more truths and realities that most reality TV shows, I think.
But you know what? All in all, 3 days after and I still think the finale is one big April Fool’s joke. Cmon now CBS!

How I Met Your Mother: 8/10

 

Nonsense Post

Have you ever felt so emotionally unsettled that you can’t pour simple string of words into a post?
Well that’s me right now and I don’t even know where to start my story so I’ll just mess around tumblr until I get sleepy or until I’m able to express my thoughts — which is highly unlikely.

 

La Vie en Rose A Capella Cover

La Vie en Rose – A Capella Cover by Cerrise

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak…angels sing from above
Everyday words seem…to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose
