Home Alone

I'm at work today. Should've worked from home instead. People in my department are in various sites today. Should make a mental note that office peeps only report in Eastwood Mondays & Wednesdays. I'm sleepy and I want to go home. Don't get me wrong, I have tons of things to do.....just not in the mood to do it. Well yeah, it's a stage....

Should get my ass back to work. Sigh...ZZZZzzzz

Small World

I love watching Supergirl. The song below was played during the very emotional separation of Kara and Mon-el in S2E22. Aww tears...

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

"Small World" (Idina Menzel)

I'm standing in the field
My feet lift off the ground
No one here will see me
No one will hurt me now

I'm brushing off the rain
While climbing through the clouds
Nobody can see me
No one can hurt me now

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I'm going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

Still rising towards the dark
Don't care what's down below
'Cause no one can see me
And no one has to know

The atmosphere is lonely
And beautiful
I don't miss a thing I used to know
I used to know

Goodbye, gravity
Goodbye, enemies
I'm going up to a place where the world is small
Where I can fly above it all
If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
I feel so tall

If there's nothing to break my fall
It's OK, I've seen it all
And maybe I was always small
But I could fly before I crawled

If I don't make it, sing my song
From here I'm weightless
No stars are famous
And the world is small
And the world is small

The Real Thing

So I was meaning to write about my dream two weeks ago but decided against it. Bakit ganon? Lagi kita napapanaginipan. Kahit di kita isipin. Bigla ka na lang dumadating sa panaginip. Well, it's a welcome surprise naman. I must admit, namiss naman talaga kita. It's been what, five years? or more? Things are different now. I guess we can't even be friends to the true sense of the word. It would be weird, I know.

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

I have been reading some sad posts on my FB feed. I can't help but think that we all are going through some rough patches on different levels but we can't say that we are better or worse than the rest. Sabi nga nila parang gulong lang ang buhay minsan nasa taas, minsan sa baba, minsan sa gitna. It's cliche, but yes when you feel down and under,  just start counting your blessings.

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

I was on leave for three days last week, it's Monday and my brain is still on holiday mode. sigh Month end reporting pa naman. grrrrr

stress test

"You get to know people when they are in difficult situations and you get to really know their character when they are not able to get what they want. We need to assess ourselves honestly. When we are in tight situations; what and how do we respond? When we are not able to get what we want how is our attitude? Self-assessment is key to self-development." ~ Francis Kong

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

So how are we when we are in difficult situations? We are human and nobody is perfect. That is why we are always on a work in progress mode all the time. And it doesn't mean that we are not moving forward. It just means that we always need to improve ourselves to be able to cope up with our ever changing environment.

If you will ask me, I do get frustrated when things don't go my way. It is an instant reaction. But when I get to think things over, I get to realize that there are just things I cannot change. So what do I do about it, I try to change my perspective. I assess what are the things that I have control over, how do I use that to my advantage. I realize also that I am human, and I need to learn and re-learn a lot of things.

In this fast paced environment, we always have to restlessly reinvent ourselves. Try to have that growth mindset and never get tired of improving ourselves. Let's read, learn, collaborate and connect with people. Be resourceful enough to find ways and means to self-development. And be mature enough to accept that there is no end to learning things.

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.
