Actually, work itself's not bad. I mean, sure I have things to do and deadlines to meet, but it's all good. I can handle it, regardless how much sleep I get or lack thereof.

What burns me out are the extra things that I have to do for work that's not directly work-related. Gets?

For one, the whole sportsfest thing is supposed to be fun, right? Well, not if you're the assigned person to coordinate with a whole lot of people you barely know. What sucks even more is that I was assigned this task because I'm the only athlete there is in our account and they only gave me like what? 2 weeks to find available courts to schedule practices and form a team. And then there's the jerseys on top of all that... You don't even want me to start with this one. Argh.

This weekend, we had our first volleyball tryout/practice and out of the 30-something people who signed up, only 10 people showed up, including myself, most of them an hour or so late. The first game's going to be on Sunday, September 14th. I'm not expecting any wins for the next few weeks. Crapola.

Oh, before I forget, there'll be a Scavenger Hunt that I'm in no way planning to join but then my boss just signed me up because 1) the race will be in UP, and since I'm from UP, do the math AND 2) again, I'm the only athlete in the account. Dammit.

I hate this...

On top of that pa, there's a baby project to be launched tonight and I'm part of the preparations. They want me to have 30 flags to be ready by 7pm and they gave me this task just Friday night. Hmmmmmm.. and I haven't started yet. Hmmmm... good luck.

I want to cry. I was close to tears Saturday morning... I swear.

*Sigh*

It's silly-weird that whenever I lose my phone, it keeps on coming back.

Yeah, the nice ol' cab driver returned my phone. I just wish he didn't tinker with it and deleted old messages. Oh well. Either way, I'm glad my phone's back. No need to gather everyone's numbers all over again.

I lost my phone... sort of... I left it in a cab.

I didn't even realize I didn't have it for almost 2 hours. Saya. :|

Thanks tom3logz for calling my phone. Luckily, the driver answered. It seems I can still recover my phone.

Oi, kahit laspag na yung phone ko, love ko yun. :( May mga bagay lang talaga sa mundo na mahirap i-let go.

Your Five Variable Love Profile



Propensity for Monogamy:



Your propensity for monogamy is high.

You find it easy to be devoted and loyal to one person.

And in return, you expect the same from who you love.

Any sign of straying, and you'll end things.



Experience Level:



Your experience level is high.

You've loved, lost, and loved again.

You have had a wide range of love experiences.

And when the real thing comes along, you know it!



Dominance:



Your dominance is low.

This doesn't mean you're a doormat, just balanced.

You know a relationship is not about getting your way.

And you love to give your sweetie a lot of freedom.



Cynicism:



Your cynicism is medium.

You'd like to believe in true and everlasting love...

But you've definitely been burned enough to know better.

You're still an optimist, but you also are a realist.



Independence:



Your independence is medium.

In relationships, you need both "me time" and "we time."

You usually find it easy to be part of a couple.

But occasionally you start to feel a little smothered.

What Your Taste in Music Says About You



Your musical tastes are intense and rebellious.

You are intelligent... but in a very unconventional way.



You are curious about the world. You love doing something new.

In fact, you enjoy taking risks and doing things most people would shy away from.



You are very physical. It's likely that you're athletic, but not into team sports.

You have the soul of an artist. Beauty and harmony are important to you.

I was the awfully bitter one.

Well, I still am to some degree... but I never thought that some people can still keep on biting each others' asses after n number of years just to make a claim as to who comes off as the victim at the end of all this, if there is an end to it all, that is. I'm trying not to sound self-righteous or whatnot, but to be frank, it's getting old. Just admit that it's over and MOVE ON! (Ok, that was a bit harsh, but I like to believe that I'm not the only one who feels this way.)

Anyway, I don't think whatever I write or say will ever make these certain people stop, let alone change how they feel about their issue. I guess what I'm trying to do is to voice out what I want to say without having to take full responsibility by putting on a shroud of anonymity on this post.

Oh well, I'm just saying...

:p

* Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
* Go to imdb and find a quote for each movie.
* Post them here for everyone to guess.
* Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it FIRST and the movie.
* No googling/using IMDB search functions.


1. Right. Thanks. What if, uh, Mr. Thacker realized that he had been a daft prick and got down on his knees and begged you to reconsider if you would... indeed... reconsider.

2. I told you I was a good dancer. Can I keep you?

3. Mad, your grace, for not seeing this: you have a fortune, a beautiful woman who loves you. Take the gold, take the woman, and live your life! Stop this plan, take what you have won!

4. Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. Means it's time for a promotion.

5. I'd be the worst possible Godfather. I'd probably drop her on her head at her christening. I'd forget all her birthdays until she was 18. Then I'd take her out and get her drunk. And, let's face it, quite possibly try and shag her.

6. I have introduced myself. You have introduced yourself. This is a very good conversation.

7. Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.

8. It's amazing the clarity that comes with psychotic jealousy.

9. Hello, Jason. I think I've had a change of heart. Quite literally. The animal-plant toxins had a rather unique effect on me. They replaced my blood with aloe, my skin with chlorophyll, and filled my lips... with venom.

10. You know, that seat belt thing was a pretty smooth move.

11. Things don't have to be extraordinary to be beautiful, Even the ordinary can be beautiful.

12. The great thing about MJ is... when you look in her eyes and she's looking back in yours... everything... feels... not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is... you don't know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable and you weren't ready for it.

13. How about a little piece of integrity in this world that is so full of greed and a lack of honorability that I don't know what to tell my son! Except, "Here. Have a look at this guy who's busy yelling 'Show me the money." Did you know he's broke? Broke, broke, broke. He is broke and working for you for free! I'm sorry I'm just not as good at the insults as she is.

14. You know, I never wanted to be a mom. Sharing it with you... that's one thing. It's another to be looking over my shoulder for the next twenty years, knowing someone else would have done it better... someone else would have done it right.

15. I know you're Peter's best friend and I know you've never particularly warmed to me. Look, don't-don't argue. We've never got friendly. But I just wanted to say, I hope that can change. I'm nice. I really am. Apart from my terrible taste in pie and... It would be great if we could be friends.

He was an excellent coach, a great friend and a loving "father" to me and to my teammates. We were the lucky ones.

I love you, Coaches. We will meet again someday.
 
 
13 April 2008 @ 08:47 am
You're right. I'm the only person in the world that could remotely understand why you had to do what you did. The thing is no matter how much I understand where you're coming from, we made different choices. I stayed, you left and I can't forgive you for it.

Browsing through a lot of photo albums of my friends having fun over the Holy Week sort of made me realize what my job is to me aside from it being a source of income and an alternative for self-improvement.

Me working has become a sanctuary, an escape.

At work, emotions do not exist. Relationships are never something more than being colleagues. And the best thing is I can take a break from all the relationships, which I voluntarily molded with a chosen few. What can I say, everyone needs a break from it all sometimes...

The downside is not being there usually leads to one thing... Growing apart.

Remember my last post about absences and relationships like the wind and a flame? I guess, some flames aren't as strong as one would think they'd be.

*Sigh*

Maybe I miss them... Although this can be more true than false, the repressed cynical me is saying they don't miss or need me anymore. After all, I haven't been there for them for the past few months. Of course, how can you turn to someone who's not there when you need them?




...

I guess I need my job like that. I mean, I have to stop worrying about other people for now. Self-improvement now, relationship-mending later (if it can still be mended that is).

*Sigh*



Later days.

"Absence does to a relationship what the wind does to a flame. It extinguishes the weak and feeds the strong."

Or something like that. It's one of those forwarded text messages you randomly get from people that sticks. At least, for me it did.

Anyway, I forgot why I posted this entry to start with. I guess I better get some shut-eye. Later days.

Since the start of the year, positivity has been my companion and "thoughts become things" has been my mantra. For the past two and a half months, everything seems to fall into place. But for this week, I don't know. One thought has been hovering over my head.

My original plan was to go back to school after a year, but right now, I'm having doubts if I want to study again.

I'm lost as to why I feel this way. Maybe because I fear that I might make the same mistakes as before. Add to that the fact that I still haven't figured out what field I want. There are a lot of things that are interesting for me but none that I'm passionate about. I don't know... There's pretty much a lot of uncertainty and insecurity going on in my head.

I know my new found optimism has been showing great results for me at work and it looks promising that it could make wonders for school in the future. I'm just a little unsure in pursuing my education (and my parents pressuring me to enroll next semester doesn't help at all. Doesn't help at all.)

*Sigh*

Honestly, at this point, I don't know what to do. I just don't want to spend most of my time dwelling on it. I'll shrug this feeling of uncertainty, insecurity or whatnot off... I'll cross the bridge when I get there. I just hope I'd have to cross that bridge later than sooner.

You are The Magician


Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.


Eleoquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.


The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man - either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

Emotionless the city lies
Cruel it is, it clouds my eyes
The dull the dark shades on my day
I live inside this place

Locked up inside my metal cage
Always tense and filled with rage
Above the concrete fields below
With you i wanna go, wanna go

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

I see only what i wanna see
I'll be only what i wanna be
My blanket covers me, yes

"Yeah, check it
Now as a yout man I was body poppin breakin on the lino
Traded in my lino for a pad and a biro
Used to stand in line just so as I could sign my giro
But now my ends meet in the best way that I know
(Hat, snare, kick) and the beats that go boom
See the music I consume to escape the doom and gloom
All the beats and melodies keep realities at bay
But what happens when the records done and starts to fade away"

Alone within myself again
I try to veil away my pain
The dirty grey surrounding me 'round
And now I hear no sound...

"I feel like Melle Mel from way back in the days
As i wonder how i keep from going under
I got trouble on my mind like my name is chuck d
And like marvin gaye it makes me wanna holler
When the music hits me I feel no pain
That's why i gotta put you on again and again
I take the needle off the technics and put it in my vein
All my troubles get crushed as the rush hits my brain
And away goes trouble down the drain"

I see only what I wanna see
I be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me
Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket
I see only what I wanna see
I be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me
Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

I've pretty much picked up a few things to do in my abundance of spare time, and here they are:

Reading Books - I've been reading books lately. I know, I know. Who would've thunk it right? But yeah, I've been introduced to the wonderful world of reading and from how I see it, I'm enjoying it. Right now, I'm about to finish F.H. Batacan's Smaller and Smaller Circles. And what's even more weird is that I have a list of books to read. Woah.

Starbucks - Well, this is not exactly new because I've always been spending time in Starbucks Katipunan, but I've been spending a lot of time at Starbucks CVG now. Mostly, alone... reading. Haha. (Well, lately with beiabeiabeia.) In fairness, I've been seeing some familiar faces there too.

NBA Fantasy League - So far, I've developed checking the games, my lineup, and everything NBA at least thrice a day. Well, at least the stats part. Damn Sky Cable doesn't have Basketball TV anymore. That sucks. I barely get to watch games. :(

JMA Legacy Basketball League - Oh yes. The JMA basketball tournament started last night. I scored 2 points but got 22 rebounds, dished out 2 assists, 1 block and 1 steal. Not bad for my first game. I'll work on my shooting for the next games. And well, I think I'd have to lessen cigarette smoking... NAH!

I guess that's it. Unless I forgot to mention other things. Oh well. Later days.

P.S.

Soon to come:

Lifting weights, Running, "Groupie-ing," etc.

Wooptidoo! I finally got my first ever Starbucks planner.

Now that I have it, I don't know what to do with it. I'm not exactly Mr. Organized, you know. I guess this year I can start trying to be by actually using my planner, but then, right now, I'm living a bum life. Oh well.
