Rebel no more!

sanity

With the pressures of society in each and every one of us, can you blame a cousin of mine for thinking that music is his sanity? And I do believe that it is! He’s been embroiled in one trouble after another when he was younger and before he discovered his passion for a FG 730s acoustic guitar. When he did, he slowly turned his life around.

It was astounding, if you know him personally! He’s been a rebel through and through but when he changed, he began attending counseling sessions and eventually became a youth counselor himself.

Marry that girl…

marry me

I’ve been thinking about it more and more in each passing day. It’s still fresh, new, but thoughts of tying the knot and spending the rest of my life with her have been in my mind for weeks now. I don’t want to appear too eager and impulsive but is it really a crime to want something and plan for it ahead of time?

Maybe, next year. Early in 2015. But I will talk to my parents first. I will open my heart to them and to my sister. They need to know first and then I will make a final decision about it.

And then I will talk to her about it.

Tummy in seventh heaven!

Today should be a lazy day for me since it is Thanksgiving celebrations in the office. Calls are far and few between, that’s for sure based on experience, so I thought I’d ask my Mom to make me chocolate chip banana pancakes for breakfast…

And she did!

My tummy is in seventh heaven right this very moment! I know that for people in this country it’s already time to sleep and way past dinner but this time of the day is just breakfast for me due to my working hours. After breakfast, I have to check out the black lights that my Dad was telling me about last weekend. He said that a godson of his wanted that this coming Christmas and since he hasn’t seen him since the godson was in his teens, he thought he’d make it up to him with a pricier holiday gift and a day of golf with the guy.

Today is good!

Use of imagination.

imagination

I will always be grateful to my parents for making me use my imagination when I was still very young. They let me play and imagine that I was a hero about to save the world with the toys they bought me then. They also read me stories which made me dream of adventures with other kids my age.

When I was a bit older, they let me read comic books and classics. I was able to create in my mind whole new worlds filled with adventures and great people and happiness. They also brought me to their trips here and abroad. Those trips made me use my imagination even more once we were home.

I am grateful to my parents for my use of imagination, then and now.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Determined to have fun.

Why stress yourself out if you can have fun while also making use of your creative skills? Have fun with your wedding flowers by applying for DIY skills to it! Bloominous is confident that with each package you get comes fun and easy experiences with DIY flowers.

Bloominous

Let me share a personal experience here. My cousin Pia got married a couple of months back. She was a very stressed out bride because she wanted to stick with rules she made for the wedding as well as the budget she and her groom agreed upon. Cousins including me pitched in to help but I guess since it was her wedding, she was still stressed out. When elders talked to her, she realized that she was missing out on enjoying the experience of preparing her own wedding. She vowed to have fun! She was so determined that it immediately lightened the load on her shoulders.

Bloominous wants brides not to be burdened with floral arrangement problems. Like my cousin Pia, brides should enjoy the experience of preparing their weddings. Pick option DIY flowers and get ready to have fun!

What kids taught me.

children

Having two kids in the family is such a joy. Whenever I get to visit my sister, I learn a thing or two from my nephew and niece. Just by playing with them, watching their favorite cartoons, and most especially while talking to them.

You will be amazed at how many things you will learn about life from a little kid.

Choices in life

choices in life

We all have choices in life. We are made with our own free will and whatever happens to us, it is a product of a choice we made.

I don’t like people who blame others for their misfortune. I don’t like those people who depend on others for their fortune. It is our life to live and the choices are always there for us.

I hope you get my drift.

Singing the blues away!

Trent, one my college buddies, knocked on my door already drunk. He was carrying his acoustic guitars, the ones we would play when me and some of our other college buddies are hanging out at his place. He was still coherent but from his smell and his eyes, I knew that he probably already drunk quite a bit.

He told me that he and his girlfriend broke up. I just shook my head when I heard it. It was what their nth time to break up?!? I told him that it will probably just be a day or so and they will be back together. But he wanted to vent his anger over what happened so I let him be. He sang his blues away!

Two days after, I got a call from him. Yes, they got back together!

Tsk.
