I want a love that will breathe life back into my sleeping viscera. I want a love that crushes my past half-lives into a fine dust, a love that obliterates the crumpled strung out papery cutouts, a love that scribbles the last word and seals the letter. I want a love that will change me, alter me, add to me; spin new neural networks in my brain matter like shiny silver webs.
it’s been a while since i last blogged. was swamped with work and spent a 2-week vacation in manila so was not able to log in for a while. then, i transferred apartments so i’m still in the process of fixing my stuff, putting everything in place. will post pictures soon!
“You should find a man who always sees you as the ultimate prize. In this day and age, men look for their equals and settle for the girl who fits the bill–which is fair–but as a man, it’s always better to find a girl who you feel you don’t deserve. If you choose someone who’s a notch higher than what you would expect for yourself, you’ll always fight to keep her. You wake up each morning feeling like you’re the luckiest guy in the world!”

I was visiting Cessology’s blog and found out that she nominated me. Thank you, it is an honor. Now, the hard part begins. Finding 15 bloggers to pass this on to. I have a few in mind, but will not amount to 15. I will still look for more.
7 things about me:
- I’d rather sleep than eat.
- I like to collect quotes. When I was in college, I had an organizer full of quotes. I lost it twice. I was not lucky the second time. I did not get it back.
- It doesn’t bother me if I don’t have new clothes or the latest gadgets, I’d rather spend my money on good food.
- I like everything well-planned. I don’t like to rush things.
- I’m brutally honest. I will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.
- I love street photography.
- I’m a laid-back person.
Sorry, I only have 12 bloggers at this point. Will soon add 3 more. =)
When I was in my early 20s, I used to do job-hopping. I can’t stay in a workplace for at least 2 years. Last thing I remembered, the longest was 1 year and 5 months. Then after that, I can’t stay even for a year. Until I landed a job I’ve been avoiding since I graduated… a teaching post.
You see, I have a degree in education. But I preferred not to practice. Personal reasons. But here I am, on my 5th year of teaching, and still at the same school. Imagine that! For me, this is already an achievement. I managed to stay in one company for 5 years and was offered another contract. To think that I was avoiding teaching for the longest time, and this is the job that will keep me still. It has taught me a lot like patience and tolerance. And it feels really good to see that a child is learning from me, that I am contributing skills that he/she can use everyday.
An aunt once told that if you want to get rich, don’t teach. But seeing the kids learn from me, gives me fulfillment. The kind that makes you want to do your job even better. And besides, teaching is a very important profession. There will be no presidents, engineers, architects or even doctors without a teacher.
