Where have all the excitement gone?

Inee and I have finally moved in our new apartment. It's our first
night here, but unfortunately, Inee had to work overtime - so I'm
spending the first night alone. I feel the urge to go home. I miss
home. It's lonely to be alone in a very unfamiliar place. I miss home.

Imaginations (quite long)

Personality tests almost always reveal (although not always direct to the point) that I am an imaginative person. And that is sooo true. I can always easily make scenarios in my head out of the blue. Most of the time, I smile or laugh alone when something fun pops out of my head. Sometimes, I cry when I daydream about confrontations and sad events, there are also times when I have to pinch myself for thinking about absurd stuff. =P

I, particularly, love to imagine about my future. Back in high school, I imagined myself being in a corporate environment, doing corporate stuff – a few years after, what I imagined has become real. I like what I am doing now because I have always dreamed about it. Lately, I’m beginning to imagine some more about my future. Still vague thoughts, but will have clarity soon. Right now, I imagine that after a couple of years or so, I can say to myself that I have exhausted everything that I have to learn from this corporate world. Eventually, I will move out of this zone, and perhaps get involved in teaching kids while being a small-time entrepreneur. I also imagine myself going to other countries in the near future. I still don’t know if I’d to go there for a business trip, or for a new career, or for a new life in a different world. Still vague, like I said, but what's certain for now is that I want to experience how it is to be a stranger in another country and to experince living in a place full of people with different culture, perhaps different language and norms. This way, I will be able to appreciate life and culture in the Philippines. If I will be given the chance to go to other countries (without spending much , of course =P), as of this writing, I am resolute to grab it. But that’s for now, things might change. =)

So there goes pieces of my self-imaginations. The good side is that I almost always know what I want and when I want it. If I will have the chance to outline my future, I can do so easily. The disadvantage, however, is that I tend to become idealistic. So idealistic that I become frustrated when the end result is not how I imagined it to be. So idealistic that I get disappointed when other people don’t do things according to how I daydreamed about it. Bad bad I know. That’s why most of the time I tell myself that all these are just my imaginations – all products of my thoughts. I can’t live by these imaginations.

The struggle of detaching imagination from reality has always been a struggle for me. On top of my imaginative side, I have to put my positive side. So that when things don’t seem to turn out right (my imaginations being the standard in that case), I can get away with the frustration and still cheer up. =)

BTW, I’m writing this because, right now I am frustrated about something. My way of shrugging it off and telling myself that “hey stupid, people don’t know your thoughts, and they can’t look through your imaginations, so don’t expect them to do things your way…”.

Blogging/writing can really be such a great relief. =)

Yeah, Ernie! ^_^
You Are Ernie

The Sesame Street Personality Quiz

Personality tests always amuse me. How come the results are always exact?

The Giver

You strive to maintain harmony in relationships, and usually succeed.
Articulate and enthusiastic, you are good at making personal connections.
Sometimes you idealize relationships too much - and end up being let down.
You find the most energy and comfort in social situations ... where you shine.

In love, you are very protective and supporting.
However, you do need to "feel special" - and it's quite easy for you to get jealous.

At work, you are a natural leader. You can help people discover their greatest potential.
You would make a good writer, human resources director, or psychologist.

How you see yourself: Trusting, idealistic, and expressive

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Bossy, inappropriate, and loud

Uhmm... hmmm? Hihi. =P

You Are Destined to Struggle With Your Weight

Like most people, you find it a little difficult to stay at at weight you're comfortable with.
If you change a few habits and make food less important, you may find the struggle hardly exists anymore.

I think this is the longest time that I didn't blog. Almost two months. Haaay, sorry for being lazy. =P

Got lots of stuff to share. I plan to post about them:
  • The simple yet memorable celebration of my 23rd birthday -- obviously, this is way too late already. 2 1/2 months overdue! *slaps forehead* but i still want to share. :-)
  • The hustle and bustle of going from Cavite to Makati everyday! I finally gave up, and I'll be moving in to Makati beginning August (for weekdays only). Uhm.. I'm excited about the new experience/environment, but anxious about the budget.
  • Gym! Yeah, I finally enrolled myself in the gym. Hihi. Tagal ko nang pinag-iisipan, kaso, takot ako sa gastos. But luckily, we availed of a super good deal. More later. :)
  • Pics pics and pics!
  • Quizzes and tags.
  • etchetera, etchetera, etchetera...
I miss blogging. Hope I can conquer this laziness from now on...

Labels: ,

for my sexy mamsies!

I already got these garfield's words before from an SMS. But I still can't help but giggle when I saw this. May point naman! Hihi.

Inee and EK, this is for us! Love you sexy mamsies! Mwuah!

My Lakbayan Grade is C- [Updated]

My Lakbayan grade is C-!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out at Lakbayan!

Created by Eugene Villar.
Got this cool quiz from Sarah. :-)

I thought I'd have a higher grade since we always have a family out-of-town once or twice a year. But obviously, that wasn't enough. :P Anyway, I'm looking forward to more travels in the years to come. Wooohoo! (This means that I need to tighten my belt a little more. yikes!)
I already included "Just Passing through" pero C- pa din. :(
