Pagod na Puso

Pagod na ang puso ko. Dahan-dahan kong ibinaba ang telepono. Magaan ang damdamin, pero mabigat ang puso. Gumaan, kasi, sa wakas nakayanan ko na ring tumiwalag sa isang nakakapagod na relasyon. Mabigat sa puso, kasi, kahit papaano, matagal-tagal na rin naman ang aming pinagsamahan at nasanay na akong nariyan lang siya sa aking tabi. Pero, kailangan kong isipin ang kapakanan ko at ng aking pamilya.

A Week of Solitaire

What would you do?

In fifteen days, summer vacation will be over.

Networking and Relationship Building

Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Labor indicate that 70 percent of all jobs are found through networking (personal contacts). A mere 15 percent are through a search firm, 10-12 percent through want ads, 4 percent have been found by people creating their own jobs, and 2 percent by blindly sending out resumes. More people are hired by being in the right place at the right time than for any other single reason. But you can't take advantage of that unless you stay in contact with your network. This is the main reason to have a network.

The Revelation

As I was resting my head on his shoulder, I felt a sense of security that I have never felt since my Dad died. His gentle strokes on my hair sent a feeling of oneness with him... as if he is an integral part of me, the one who completes me.

Fall

A feeling that says, "sigh... what will life bring me today... what will make me happy today?"

It's time to reflect, time to move on... look forward to things that re-energizes our soul.

Ahhh... the beauty of nature, the beauty of life enjoy the colours and moments of life while it lasts.

Enjoy the moment.

What Would You Do?

My life, as I know it.

Part one - the first time.

It was the night I could never forget for the rest of my life.

This Too, Shall Pass

Her fingers kept on brushing through the long strands of my hair...

"Life can be tough sometimes... I understand what you are going through, but you’ll get over it and say: this too, shall pass."

Sweetly, she uttered those comforting words as my tears kept pouring like heavy rains in June.

The Music Boxes

The outskirts of London have changed dramatically since I have set foot upon their cobbled streets. Now markets with dull, chipped paint stand amongst unkempt houses, forgotten by their owners who now only remember the address of the local pub. Monstrous barns and useless soil reside where dense thickets of grass once stood with white, milky flowers peeking though. The only things that remain unchanged are the decrepit streets waiting for unsuspecting travelers to fall into their nooks, and the boys hiding in the alleyways waiting to rob the unwary person.

Between the Lines

I don't have many pictures of you. I will have to change this so that I have something to show at your wedding.
