i'm a creeper


You're so fucking special
I wish I was special
But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

She's running out the door
She's running out
She run, run, run, run
Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here

dear aiks,
do not worry. i also felt like that when i was working. kaya palipat lipat ako ng office sa san miguel corporation. give it a little time. meanwhile, actively look for other options. (you might want to help me muna. ha.ha.ha.)
it is too early to tell what you are meant to do. but quitting this early will not be good for you. while you may be unhappy and stressed, there is a better way of coping with it. the more unhappy and discontented you are, the more you will dread every day you work. as i have said, you are not in the worst place at this stage in your career. sometimes, having too many choices is not that healthy. i think sticking on to your job for a significant amount of time is a good idea. it will test your ability to cope with something you are not too happy doing. the sad reality is that we have to bear it because it is part of the learning process. If i encourage you to quit early, the next time you feel the same discomfort, you will not learn to cope but quit again.
I know of quite a number of people who were as good as you – or who were even better than you, but did not achieve their full potential because they always wanted to be happy with what they were doing. we need not go very far. Person A and Person B had to struggle with Company X because they did not have much choice. It is only now that they can do as they please because they have established themselves already.
I do not think you should lose sight of what you want to do. If you do decide to quit, be responsible enough to find another job before quitting. It will not look good if you quit without any definite job waiting.
i do not suggest that you immediately take the NGO route unless it is the CSR of a prominent company. while it is true that you will study later on, remember that your studying will require you to return back to the real world that you are in right now. burn out ka na, bok. you might want to take a vacation muna. madali naman maghanap ng rason at this point in time. while i am not against you doing social development work, i must say that those who succeeded in this field went through the regular careers that we have gone through. Tony Meloto worked in the private sector for a long time. Manny Pangilinan, etc.
i will always support you in any way you want me to. while the job might not be for you, you might have to grin and bear it while you are looking for a new one (whether corporate or NGO)i have taken less fulfilling jobs in my career but i have looked at them as the dots that connected me to where i am now. the more you despair, the more you will be unhappy. many people would love to take your place, given the opportunity. just look at this stage as the difficult stepping stones in testing your character and patience. probably, later on, with the benefit of hindsight, you will conclude that it was all for the better that you were not too hasty in making the decisions on this matter.
having said what i think, do not be afraid to make the decisions you think that best suit you. lagi lang naman kaming nandito. but as they say, do not make decisions when you are unhappy (or emotional). they tend to be the less logical ones.
labs always,
pops

Sa lahat ba naman ng infinite points sa number line, bakit 22 pa yung pinili mo?
Pwede namang 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 or even Ka-Fredie's favorite, 15. (NO PUN INTENDED!)
Why on earth did you choose 22?

How long will I keep my cool when I know some things are just ain't right but too tempting to try?

When girls over analyze thingsssssss.
Please enlighten me.

Passion or Passion?

If you feel a little like you're just floating along the river of life, it might be a good idea to grab a paddle and start exploring uncharted waters. When you're stuck in your bubble, you're afraid of being uncomfortable. Branch out and see what's out there. Eventually you'll encounter something that gets you excited.
And then, I pressed SEND.

Lord, ikaw na po bahala.

Green thumb! 7.13.14

Looks like I've got a new calling...so gardening it is! 

From this day going forward, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed to make these herbs last for a very loooong period (except for Cilantro and Parsley since they can't propagate through cutting)

So here goes my quest in finding the best priced culinary plants:

I was originally looking for Manila Seedling Bank Foundation Inc. located near the Dept. of Agriculture in Quezon city. But to my dismay, the establishment was demolished by the QC government on February this year (but but but good news! I just found out (just today) that they were relocated at QC Memorial circle)

Salcedo market was an option, but I found out that one pot of Basil plant costs P75-80 (that's equivalent to 2 pots of Basil if you're going to buy at Manila Seedling Bank!)

After exhausting the google search box, I came across some advertisements on olx.com (a.k.a sulit.com) and found several sellers online and thank good Lord heavens, I just clicked on the right ad! Haha

I bought these herbs from (should I say 'plant hobbyists'?? Haha) namely Rod and Mark. You may reach them through this email address: angler_rod@yahoo.com
Aaaand this address: 2069 Makiling St Cor Blumentritt St Sampaloc, Manila 
beside Maranatha Christian Academy (Ibarra-Makiling)

P.S. They're very very (with emphasis on the second 'very') generous when it comes to their offer and they're very accommodating (they're not open every Sunday, but they're doing business on a Sunday today, lucky me!) to my inquiries as well. Mark will actually tell you the basics in maintaining these kind of herbs on your garden.

But getting our way to Makiling St. was a great challenge haha! Good thing GPS came in handy as well as my big brother to drive you along the confusing streets of Manila (specifically Bluementritt area)

Hello (literally) big brothaaa, just in case you're reading this post, "thank you! Yiee" hahaha!

Wish wish wish ish sh

Almost everybody wants to have 'this' and 'that' when death comes their way.
Others wanted to be forgiven, wanted to see their long lost loved ones, and the long list goes on and on...

But then I realized that there is more than just getting the things (even though your lifeless body cannot benefit from it) that you wanted on your last day, on your last breath, on your last existence in the human race (I suppose the last one applies only to those who don't believe in reincarnation hehe)

And when that time comes, I would like it to be this way:

I wanted to give every functioning organ in my body, not because I wanted to be remembered but because I wanted them to remember that that could be the time that they should be able to help others as well. (ano daw? Ako ba to? Hahaha)

So what's your dying wish? :)

Hay. Bakit kasi ngayon pa bumagyo, nagka-traffic, lahat na ng kamalasan naranasan ko! haha chos.
Pagkatapos, malalaman mo pa na ang mystery ingredient = yung entry ko (frustation level: 99999999999 raised to 999999999th power haha)

Hindi lang yun, sasabihin pa sayo na "Sayang! Alam mo ba na ikaw lang yung nakahula ng mystery ingredient?"

Sometimes, all we have to do is ask or take a huge leap of faith...

...even though the fact that 'things doesn't always workout' still remain.
We do not always get what we wanted.
But it's okay. It's okay.

On the other hand, if we never ever take that plunge, we will probably be haunted by this two words:
what if…?

The biggest question and the hardest to answer.
Sometimes, its better not to know the answer, but why?

Random

     


I wonder, what is the probability of thinking about someone think or feel exactly the same way like you do at the same time? Like what we usually see in the screen - two completely different scenarios, but they are on the same page. 

And if the first statement is true, was it because of indirect 'cause and effect' or was it the so-called 'law of attraction'? How often they do want to shake that instance? Do they? Do they ever?
