Moments with SP-G Peeps! ;)

The other night, our nursing school batch mates met up again to dine out of course courtesy of Jong C, our friend who just got a regular position in the institution where majority of us are presently working. We had a sumptuous dinner @ Toryano's along cor. Legaspi and Camus Streets fronting the Apo View Hotel. We had so much fun chatting while having dinner. After dinner, we headed to Basti's Brew, a very famous coffee shop along Metro Davao and whine the night away. Went home filled with good memories to keep! ;) It was such a good time sharing moments with them. :)

Wounded. Bruised. Scarred.

I am personally wounded, bruised, and scarred. Friendship has been shaken and shattered. I thought the promise of forever in friendship is at hand BUT I was wrong. This friend of mine can't face his imperfections, nor could he faced mine, too! I used to hope and I tend to reach out. However, I was reaching out to a lifeless, heartless person such as him. I am staying though but I'd rather keep silent for now. I just hope and pray that my heart would be healed.

Feelin' Hopeless

It's been days that turned to weeks and yet you still feel cold. You still feel so bad with what I did. You never cared though bout my side of the story. I am a bit hopeless for now and I don't know if there's still a chance for us to get back things together again. I still believe in miracles, though.

Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme 2

A note from Judd...

Hi everyone and welcome to this year's Super Sunday Stealing! Today our meme originated from TWO sources. When I edited last week's meme, most questions were multiple questions. So I separated them. It was suppose to be an 18 question meme. When I realized that 7 questions were missing, it was too late. At least a dozen people had already done the meme. So the first questions today are from the meme we stole from Little Bark from the blog
The Tree Unleashed. Last week a player, Going Like Sixty added questions of his own and invited us to use them this week. So we took the questions that I didn't published (Boy, was Bud pissed! Only joking...) and most of Sixty's questions and we now have part two of a 25 question meme. If you missed last week, here's your chance to do a two for one!

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

16. Are there other blogs that you feel are similar to yours in content, style, or voice? ** None cos I believe that every blogger has a style of his/her own. It may have some similarities though in terms of content but I guess it differs on how the blogger manage to speak his/her mind out.

25. What’s your one wish when it comes to blogging? **I just wish that the people reading my entries should get to respect what I have written, will respect my thoughts, and would never get to judge me the wrong way. ;) I also wish that the special person I mentioned in my blog would get to read this so he would have an idea how much I wanted to reach out to him.

I Believe In Dreams

I was happy as I rose up in bed this morning. I had a very good dream that involved a friend who's into deep silence right now because of his disappointment towards me. I didn't know right now if he's really wanting to lose touch with me or he's just keeping silent until he cools down. It may just be a dream but the dream itself depicts on how we once were before we had that one single argument that led to him not keeping in touch. Right now, I can't help but reminisce the good talks, the good conversations, and the good times back when we still communicated. I believe in dreams though. I hope one day he's gonna come out of his shell and tell me that I am one friend he cannot live without. Optimism rocks, aight? ;) I just hope, wish, and pray that he's not gonna give me up and the friendship which I really cherish so much.

Just want you to know that you're being missed!

God I Need Signs!

Recently, it came to a point that I asked myself of how I wanna go on with my life. I personally wanna grow more in both aspects. I have plans needing to be realized but I still need to discern on these plans whether they're meant for me or not. Right now, I am fervently praying for God's guidance. I have laid my plans to Him and slowly I am taking some steps. I am just waiting for more signs from God and I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Thursday Thunks: We're Not Laughing At You, We're Laughing With You

Welcome to the February 4th version of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!

We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want. Write about it on your blog... simple as that. Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!
Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post. Please mention us in your post, and link back to the blog here.
Don't forget to go visit the other participants' blogs. Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks! Thats what all this is about afterall, isn't it? We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Kimber, the color of doom, and the number 999.

1. You walk into a room, someone turns and looks at you and laughs. What do you do? ** I'd look startled but will also laugh the same way as that someone did ;)

2. You find an egg, take it home and keep it warm. It hatches. What type of dinosaur is it? Do you keep it and name? ** It must be the baby dinosaur of the breed that goes out in movies like "Jurassic Park".. Perhaps I'd keep it and observe how this one grows out to be soooo big! ;) Name? I'd name it "Baby Dino".

3. Which superhero would you want to be related to and why? ** I wanna be "Superwoman" so I could also get to save lives!:)

4. A drunken sailor comes up to you on the pier...he begins harassing you in a most repulsive way....what'll be your defense? ** What more can a drunken person do if they have gone so physically unable to move? I'd surely make some "karate moves" and I think it's easiest to throw the person into the sea, with just one kick hahaha!

5. Entering a CLASS A piano bar, you're encouraged to sing atop the grand instrument...you grab the microphone and sing..... ** " Go now go, walk out the door, Just turn around now cos you're not welcome anymore.. I will survive, I will survive, eh-eh-ey! ;) "

6. If you were a character in a Dr. Seuss book/movie, who would you be and why? ** Not accustomed to this book/movie. My apologies.

7. If you have just been called to be a substitute in the Winter Olympics for your country (apparently everyone else was busy), what sport(s) will you compete in? **I am not good in sports but I think I know how to do figure skating ;) It's gonna be an honor to become a substitute for the Winter Olympics..

8. Did the audience from the piano bar in question #5 applaud when you were done with your song? ** I guess so because the song "I Will Survive" is such a loud and a great song!:)

Questions 4 & 5 were contributed by Hootin' Anni. Thanks Anni! If you would like to submit your own TT questions, email us at thursdaythunks@gmail.com

Berleen wants to know~ Why haven't you joined ICForums yet? You're a blogger, you like to talk... you like to read... seriously. It's the same concept!

I Respect Your Silence

I bet you're really that mad at me. You never really cared to ask how I am doing. Anger seems to be in your system that you continue to treat me like I am not really a good friend. For now, I am trying to give you the space that you need. I am giving you the silence that you wanted to have no matter how much I longed for our friendship to be reunited. I knew it's gotta be that hurting that someone drawn closer to me treated me like I was just a nobody. But I'm gonna take this challenge to make my promise. If in case you'd be silent forever (I hope not!), there's nothing more that I can do. Perhaps you did choose to forget me for a lifetime. I just hope in time you would get to ever realize all the things I did for our friendship which I really tried to save.

Wordless Wednesday - 2010 Fireworks @ Home

Gone Forever?

We've known each other since July. Admit it, but you also enjoyed talking to me in the same way as I enjoyed talking to you. I was even more glad when you came to confide in me your hopes, your fears, your family life, and including your deep dark secrets. That simply made me very grateful of the friendship that we had. I didn't expect that one single move of mine the other day (which I think is just a normal feeling) would immediately shaken the friendship that binds us. I never had an idea that it would ever happen because hours prior to the incident, we still talked even if the rest of the world was sleeping. Well, the damage has been done. It leaves me staring blankly at the wall. Later part became different. I feel the hurt. I got hurt for being misunderstood the wrong way. I feel bad because I didn't expect things to happen that fast. I mean, most of the times we had we're so great and everything have become shattered after all. Right now, I don't want to think that you'd be gone forever. I don't wanna think that you'd be forever lost. I know you're needing some space. But if for instance that you'd totally lost, I'd still be forever grateful for the gift of your "person" and for the gift of friendship you bestowed on me. I just really hope and wish that you'd still get to remember me as someone who made a great influence in your life.

Watery Wednesday #73



This is my first time to join a Wednesday meme and as expected, I pulled out this picture in one of my photo albums @ my Multiply site. This was actually taken by my sis who got a passion for photography (sorry sis, I stole this haha!) . The pic shows our pairs of wet Havaianas neatly placed over a stone surrounded by a small body of water. Well I hope this one counts in the meme ;) Happy Wednesday everyone!
