As what one of my favorite poets, Brandon Boyd, used to say: "Whatever tomorrow brings I'll be there - with open arms and open eyes..." I have been mulling a career change for the last few months, brought by some happenings in the professional front and a few realizations after I have begun to bring … Continue reading The future’s so bright, you gotta wear shades!
I am okay now. Still not at my best, still grieving and yes, still depressed. But I am also convinced that the fact that I am still breathing highlights the fact that I am a strong woman and I can rise again, no matter how hard, how deep I fall.
Hey, are you the big cheese in your company? Or, are you the manager -- with people reporting to you on a daily basis, usually at your beck and call. Do you juggle project after project, potently laced with various individuals' Performance Appraisals and futures thrown in between? When I was still way, way down … Continue reading …being a good boss
I was sharpening my stash of pencils when I suddenly had the brilliant idea to capture one of them as my entry for the day for my Project 365. I am one of those OC people who can't bear to use an unsharpened pencil. Call me crazy but I can't function if the pencil I … Continue reading Going through the wringer (Day 10/ 10 January 2012/ Project 365)
Things have been very hectic for me lately--work wise. I won't even go to my finances current state right now cos this post is not really meant to be a pity party. Well.

Imagine throwing caution to the wind to commute in a "hold upper" infested area of the Metro, right on the fringes of the city where you can … Continue reading Stupid things that smart people do
Last week, during my birthday, I told God that if He will give me a direct path, a concrete map to where I should be going, career-wise, I will give-up one of my biggest vices. Today, He answered my prayer. I am currently holding my end of the bargain--no Coke or any kind of soda, … Continue reading Gaining something and giving back
...but someone has to do it. Life continues to amaze me. I am still blessed to be alive and to be with family and friends who love me. People may be cruel and petty and general idiots most of the time, but I am blessed to be around people who understands and accepts me for … Continue reading It’s a hard knock life!
Do you get depressed whenever your birthday rolls around? Because I seriously, seriously do. My birthday is not until next week, but I am already experiencing obvious signs of depression and melancholia. As you probably know, I have a lot on my plate right now...let's not even got to my current miserable existence as the … Continue reading here comes another birthday
The funny thing with not appreciating what you have is you come face to face sometimes with small reminders that (in spite being your ungrateful self) you are still more blessed than others. I was reminded of this while on my way home from a really 'exciting" day at the kaisha. Again, I am the … Continue reading Isn’t it ironic?
