digital footprint

due to a recent privacy issue i had on FB, i just got too paranoid in maintaining my social media accounts. i actually deactivated my FB account and just maintained twitter, pinterest and instagram..or those accounts where i have limited personal information that can be used by whoever for whatever evil purpose they are thinking. honestly, for someone who keeps in touch with friends on FB (well i maintained my messenger though) it was a very difficult move to deactivate. it's like being in the dark. i guess this is me on withdrawal mode.

i have to decrease my digital footprint lest someone wants to stalk. it's just too scary what people can do. i heard of a couple in Australia where their FB accounts were stalked and someone used their personal information to apply for a credit card. it got approved and the couple learned about it when the credit card bill was delivered to their home. another one, also in Australia, where people stalk their FB accounts and learned that they were out on vacation, so they ransacked their house, stole everything they can and left the family with nothing.

i didn't think these were possible. but these were real stories of people who are friends of friends that can vouch that they have heard of the stories first hand. in my case, nothing like that happened. but it's scary when strangers add all your friends and send messages asking them to tell you to contact them. it is downright creepy!!!

so there. on another note, the heat this summer is terrible! i just don't want to leave my airconditioned room or office. i mean you don't even need to move and you'd be dripping wet with perspiration. i didn't think i'd every say this but can the rainy season come forward please?

domesticated

these days it's just difficult to get reliable househelp. longest stay with us was 7 yrs. but i guess times have changed. they would rather look for store help or factories. with that, we are left to fend for ourselves. i normally am used to just getting up in the morning and preparing myself for work. now, i have to wake up really early and prepare breakfast, clean a bit before leaving the house. not so difficult to do. but quite a significant adjustment to my daily sched.

i currently have someone who comes in daily to help around but she comes around after lunch. which is fine. but now i find myself instead of going out i'd rather be left at home and do household chores than going out and then coming back with tons of house work to do. it's like being abroad. even laundry places now have machines where you can just drop money and let it do it's thing. which i don't have to do as i have one at home. what i dread the most is ironing. i hate it. i can do everything at home except iron. not unless i don't have a choice.

on another note, i am just not in the mood to do anything today. i hate mondays! =(

stuck in the 90's & hashtags

I am loving this "Boybands and 90s Awesome Shit" playlist on Spotify. Totally my jam! =) Nothing like good music to inspire me to go through my day. My beats bluetooth speaker is acting up already. It's been what, 4 yrs? It fully served its purpose. Now I'm thinking of getting myself a new one. Looking at this Bose soundlink for quite sometime now or the JBL that lights up. Hahah I am such a kid.....at heart. (sabay bawi!)

On another note, it's my second year on this daily photo project. It's tough but it's good that I get to travel for work so it helps. Yesterday, a friend asked what the hashtags were for? It just looks like a cluttered post. I told him that it has a purpose. To quote wikipedia "A hashtag is a type of label or metadata tag used on social network and microblogging services which makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content." Aside from that, it garners followers and at the same time gives me insight to what the other hobbyists like myself are thinking or working on.

I wasn't a fan of #hashtags before too. But I understood it's purpose and it feels good for other people aside from your friends to appreciate your work. I read somewhere that there is a way to de-clutter or to simplify your hashtags. I have yet to find out about this. Meantime, who cares right? It's my page anyway.

sometimes you just have to find a door to open

so much for the negativity in my previous post. i guess it was just one of those days. i don't know, i just felt really down. don't even have the energy to motivate me to work. i need something to ignite me. anything to light my fire.

i can do this! i am hopeful, sometimes you just have to find a door to open. i could just be over analyzing things. as usual.

almost breaking point

I have always been a believer of second chances, of a shot at "happy endings", of forgiveness, of unconditional love. But time and again, I find myself in a constant struggle to hang on to my beliefs. I wonder, is this really the love that I deserve? Or am I just being too idealistic and ignorant that I tend to look the other way? Maybe this is why I love to watch those kdramas, because it relives the happy moments for me. Only to realize, it has been a long time, is this just all lip service? Am I fooling myself that this is what love is supposed to be?

I always find myself, forgiving. I am quick to forget or maybe I just don't want to feel the pain anymore. So I'd rather forget what has been done. But until when am I going to allow people to treat me this way? I think I deserve my happy ending. But with this, is it ever going to happen? I hate fighting over petty things, over baseless mood swings, over things that can be discussed in a mild manner. I hate being threatened to be left alone. Because I can live on my own. I don't need this.  I just want to be free.

domino

The year started with a big bang, there were some major changes that happened in the family. And until now I still can't wrap my head around a lot of stuff. There are still some issues that needs to be settled. And I am quite unsure if this was the right decision because honestly it has a domino effect on a lot of things.

So me trying to find anything positive, I learned that those born in the year of the Ox has a horoscope showing a brighter outlook this year of the rooster, (not a believer but what the heck). However, my gut feels otherwise. I need to think less and hope for the best. (eewww that rhymed)

Not feeling well so my head is all over the place. Sigh.

pagdalaw

sa pagpikit ng mga mata

at paglalim ng tulog na tila

inuugoy ng duyan

nagulat ako sa iyong pagdalaw

sa panaginip ko na parang totoo

nandoon ang pagtatanong sa isip

sa di inaasahang makita muli

ang iyong mga ngiti

ngunit kahit ito'y sa panaginip lang

salamat na din sa iyong pagdalaw

hanggang sa muling pagkikita kaibigan

solitaire

Seasons come and go

A thousand wishes on falling stars

A glass of wine to get through sleepless nights

The craving for a loving touch and tenderness

That strong facade crumbling down fast

A bucketful of tears, an empty space within

How do you unravel a lonely heart? - MGP

one more happy ending

“Happily ever after, or even just together ever after, is not cheesy,” Wren said. “It’s the noblest, like, the most courageous thing two people can shoot for.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

********************************

recently, i have watched somewhere and this lesson somehow caught my attention. "in any relationship, what is important is your happiness. when you are happy, people who surround you will be happy too." i agree. it's not being selfish, it's being realistic. thing is, what does it take to make you happy?

sometimes it means feeling loved and loving in return - a two way relationship. but sometimes it also means to sacrifice, being happy when you know another person is happy because of that sacrifice. sa tagalog, martyr. so happiness per se is subjective. so whether happily ever after (even if not together) or even just together ever after (but not happy all the time) is your choice.
