Possibly Maybe Unexpectedly: ON TO 2012—THANK YOU 2011!

Possibly Maybe Unexpectedly: ON TO 2012—THANK YOU 2011!

ON TO 2012—THANK YOU 2011!

Let's meet the 2012 with happiness in our hearts!

I don’t want to end 2011 without my year-end post, especially since I didn’t get to write a blog post last Christmas due to the power interruptions. But since that has passed and the present is more important, here I am, writing what I call my leap-of-faith article.

Learn the Art of Letting Go and Making Room for Something Wonderful

Let go of yourself....

I just got done sorting out my clothes and throwing away old class notes to lessen clutter. Although I also did this last December of 2010, I have to admit that it was only recently that I fully embraced and appreciated the art of “letting-go”. Good bye old clothes and shoes. Farewell collegiate notes. And soon I’ll be saying “so long” my beloved books. At present, as I write this blog, I am already done planning the shopping I’ll be doing this December – getting me a good pair of dressy shoes.

Karma is Just around the Corner: Better Be Good to Yourself

Learn to see greatness in every situation

My Facebook home wall (not my profile wall) was recently bombarded by so many issues about karma from friends (well okay so I also posted one too just yesterday). Two of my friends posted how people who did them wrong was getting the bad karma they deserve. Some friends posted quotes on karma. Others simply posted the pain they felt after karma got back at them (regarding romantic relationships) and was making them depressed. Among all the post that was there, one post stood out as this friend started it with Karma is just around the corner….

Baby Steps to Greatness: Start by Making Good Habits

It's the things you do today that make-up your future

My uncle once gave the most important tip in studying effectively: read and understand the book from cover to cover “literally”. Whether it’s the copyright’s page, the index, the table of contents, the edition, or just the testimonials, reading these can greatly help in assimilating the lessons the author wrote in his book. He told me this after quizzing me with what I was reading – an Engineering book which I was surprised to see he understood more even if his profession was lined up in political science (take note he just read it then and there). It was then that I saw what was wrong with my study habits (particularly my reading). I love to read and did very well in class; but I could have performed even better.

What Success Is...

Define SUCCESS...

It may be getting a promotion
Being able to travel more
Or finally getting fame…and fortune…

Then again, for some, fortune is enough….

Let’s admit, almost everyone defines and acknowledges success to the amount they have stashed away in the bank. With money you can buy anything you want, go anywhere you want, and even be your own boss. Other than this you can even help every person who comes to you for it and provide for your family’s needs and wants…. When you’re able to do this you end up happy because you’re “successful”… But what if no matter how much work you do—even with the six figure salary you get each month—you still find yourself unsuccessful…

When Things Go Out of Control...


I was supposed to write something about iphone app development but I ended up writing this blog post instead. Recently a certain blogger’s awards event happened in Legazpi. I may not have been a part of it but some friends were and they won (CONGRATULATIONS!!!). I’m happy for them and I have no regrets if I haven’t posted my link (this blog post) earlier for the possibility of it being nominated. I was still fixing this blog – from the contents to its layout (and layout’s next). As a graduate of an IT course and as the blog’s owner I felt it was but right that I do the tweaking myself. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do it for months. But enough about this blog (or when would it get finally done); I just want to point out something….

Things are meant to happen for a reason…

Morning Walk

The already risen sun

I love my early morning walks; although I haven't done much of it recently, I’ll definitely do it again! When I started doing it I was only limited to our yard, but with the terrain I can't help worrying about tripping over--in other words I DON'T ENJOY IT! Good thing my sister finally took me to the pier to do some walks.

I've been to Pidru's

It's not Juan, nor Santiago nor Jose - not even Pedro - who had recently captured my interest (although these are names of the four Jimenez brothers whom my family call ancestors)...and it's not even a's dining...

My sister Jemai and a serving of tapsilog

Wishing I can update this blog more....

I know I haven't updated my blog for a month and how I wish I could more. Anyways, here's an update of what's been going on with me lately..

I've been attending class (it's not raining anymore)
I've gone to Legazpi (since my last December 28 visit)
I've gone back to Pidru's Resto (and discovered how full and good and cheap their carbonara is)
and attended a seminar The Art of teaching (and wrote something about it).

I can't say I've been really loaded but compared to the previous years, let's admit that at this point I should have at least that tiny bit of time to update my post--so why didn't I...?

Blogging and My Thoughts


After more than a month....Finally!!!!

I miss BLOGGING! It's been a while and I really really miss this. It's been a while and in that span of time a lot has happened (even if it means me just staying home).

Although I wasn't writing, I was still visiting my blog. Unfortunately, in as much as I wanted to write whatever I was experiencing, work and school was always getting in the way. Not that those can stop me, it was just that I don't want to break the momentum I had with work and I have always considered this blog as a leisure. I love writing and this is a proof of it. I wanted to become a writer when I was young...Be like Ate Ophie and have my short stories or poems published in a Women's Magazine. At present, I am a writer, but not the type of writer I was planning on...but I must admit this "occupation" has definitely made me a better writer.
