I am a guy who has a high standards in life – person. Yes. HIGH standards. And it somehowe resurface a person’s personality. Few friends kept on telling me to lower my standards because we… More
I have been hearing a lot of comments about my weight lately, and honestly I am not comfortable or maybe a little bit sensitive when it comes to that specific topic. I always ended up drinking, dietary tea at night, or changing the way of supplying food. There was this time in the past where I stopped eating rice, and lessen on my carbohydrates intake. It wasn’t that difficult, mainly because I was indeed motivated from the comments I got from my friends.
Due to the weight defying words I have been receiving from my friends, I have decided to start my diet. Unlike the last time, I will be taking a smaller steps through this journey. It would help my body to adjust for the changes I will be making for the rest of my life? Hmm.
My plans (or our plan – if you like to hop in), would start with that they call water therapy. I have read this in so many blogs and reliable sites, and I am interested in testing how effective and healthy this therapy is going to be. This would be difficult since I am not a regular drinker of water, but this would help me/us with my/our plan.

So here’s going to be the plan for the whole two weeks:
- Go to your alarm setting.
- Set a timer every other hour like 7,8,9,10..depending on the hour you wake up and sleep.
- Label your alarm to whatever you want.
- Adjust it to ‘everyday’ or to whatever you want (your call).
- And, proceed to what you do every day.
Home will never be home without the person you are expecting to see when you go home.
Hours ago, I went to my mother’s grave. I talked to her like it’s a two way conversation, I told her all the stories and gossips happening today, and I lay my back on the grave she was laying.
And you know what?
It felt like home. I felt how secure I once again. I felt the same feeling I felt before she passed from this life. Oh how I miss it! BUT NOW I KNOW THAT SHE’S MY HOME. She’s the reason why I felt so secure and safe when I was a kid. She’s the reason why I worry nothing when I am at home.
This may be an emotional post, but I am telling you guys that home will never be home without the people you are used to seeing everyday. Home is security and the only people that will give you that feeling of “home” is the person you are expecting to always be there when you go home.
This is me being secured and happy.
Despite the rainy days, my friends and I went watch an independent movie entitled “Pamilya Ordinaryo”. I, myself, isn’t a fan of going out on rainy days, however, this is a brand new experience for me. I have been wanting to attend Cinemalaya film fest since my first year in college…and finally!!
I went to CCP with Lyka and Keara. Lyka is one my college friends, and Keara is one my hometown friends. I was pretty confident that they will get along since their personality are both out-going, and they got the mountaineer personality.
The movie was truly influential. We went out of the cinema repeating the line – ” Where’s Baby Arjan?!” since it was mentioned in the movie several times. We made jokes out of it, and yes it’s kinda corny, we enjoyed our experience naman eh!
I totally expected that “Pamilya Ordinarya” is an open ended movie – meaning that it will give so many questions at the end like What happened to the characters, What happened to the lady that-. Still, it was absolutely a great movie. It presented us so much knowledge on how hard the life of Filipino street children in the cities. I wish the government could help them..
We were supposed to go to the National Museum, but the rain just won’t stop. So we decided to stay inside which we found a mini-museum on the upper floors.
We found some artistic pieces:
I was not in the mood to read and look at arts that time, yet I tried to see the deeper meaning of each artwork. And I still feel proud at myself for choosing to learn than to portray my laziness.
It was an awesome experience – wish I could watched the other movies, yet I am prioritizing my thesis this year. Sorry!😦
We often do thing to please other people, to please our parents, our friends, our relatives…but are doing something to please ourselves? Maybe yes, maybe no.
So do this for you, to you and by you.
Have a meal outside by yourself. Enjoy every minute. Try thinking about the goals you want to achieve 10 years from now or even a year from now. Go and watch a movie by yourself. Go buy yourself a gift for standing strong.
“How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it? Why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager – I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? Two whom shall I make my complaint?” (Kierkegaard’s literary character Young Man in Repetition, 1843)
“Now it is no longer a matter of deciding what to do, but of deciding how to decide.” (May, Love and Will, 1969)
“As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the trye goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the oppurtunity…of learning that death is the key which u locks the door to our tru happiness.” By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
“We have become addicted to having rather than being and confusing our needs with our wants” he told Reuters…
And soon I learned that working on these concepts brings me back to where life is. It is beautiful like a flower blooming and stunning like the sun setting from afar.
Some people do not like conforming with the trend (like me), and some likes to conform with it. Some people like to publicize everything about them on social media, and some like to keep it to themselves. I get it!
Okay. I get that some people hate this game because of the effects we see on others, but c’mon! Pokemon has been living for so many years! And children/teen like me, who watched the earlier episodes, dreams to become a Pokemon master or simply just to have his own Pokemon..and today is that day. Thanks to the creator of this game, we are living in that dream guys!!!
And for those haters of this game, I hope you guys and gals understand the joy we are feeling today! Please.
Everyone, including myself, should get-off the internet, get-off their beds – pick themselves up and live their dreams. It may sound so basic, but how can we argue when this statement stated the mere fact of reality.
This is one of those random realizations I get while staring at my phone as the lights slowly dim. Seeing myself inside the horrific world of the internet scares me. I don’t want to be that person who checks his phone for updates or updates people on what I am doing at that specific moment, what food is on the top of my plate, who are the people I am with….etc. I just want to live in a world that is real and with less of the attention I need.
Recently, I permanently deleted my twitter account to keep myself away from tweeting unnecessary words and to publicize every thing about my life. Haha!
So… Goodluck with that!
