Exploring my options

It’s now a week in to 2012, and I have yet to take time to really think about what I want to do in the immediate future. I now have the most free time I’ve ever had in years since I left school, and I have enough finances to keep me afloat for a month […]

Trenta

Today, I turned 30. I haven’t gotten any epiphanies, nor do I feel any more adult than I did yesterday. I still have the same worries, the same things, the same everything. Yeah, there’s not much difference… yet. Or maybe ever. *ramble* But one thing’s for sure: I am blessed. And I am grateful. Here’s […]

Mid-day musings

It’s lunch time, although I had my meal a little earlier. I had to go to the bank to get my ATM card, so I thought I’d take an early lunch break. At 11, I was already out of the office and walking the rather long walk to the bank. I truly didn’t mind the […]

UP… and down :p

I have a confession to make. I watched “UP” twice, and both times, I cried. Not that it was a sad movie (I am warning you now if you hate spoilers… STOP READING!). It was actually very enjoyable and great for a lot of laughs. However, there was a part — and a pretty significant […]

It had pictures of various places in Paris, and the text was a letter by writer Gabriel García Márquez. I was surprised at first because I wrongly interpreted […]

And no regrets

Possibly during moments when things aren’t going as smoothly as they had hoped or planned; when life seems to be against them in all aspects. Uttering “If only…” somehow gives us the feeling that […]

A letter of thanks

A few months ago, my classmate Kat (yep, same nick as mine) and I were talking about the nearly lost art of traditional letter writing. Nowadays, just about the only thing you get via snail mail are bills, notices and things that don’t really make you happy. In the last three years, I probably have […]

Thanks

Today, I resolve not to complain. Or at least, not as much as I normally do. It's kind of a normal thing to go about my day with something to whine about: work, the people, the slow internet connection, lack of finances, lack of time… without fail (as proved when checking out my chat logs […]
