Nicey Thursday! =)

Despite heading home almost 2AM this morning after a toxic pm duty shift and despite my being sleepless, I still managed to make my Thursday great!

I was on a 'ngarag' mode when I checked on my phone that read 8:05AM and I had a wedding to attend at 8AM. Quickly, I took a shower and fixed myself. It really took me so long to get myself prepared because of some interruptions. Anyhow, I got to the wedding reception venue past 10AM and the program just started. I was caught with the newlyweds dancing to the tune of 'So Close', which is one of my favorite songs. It almost got me teary eyed seeing them with their glows in their eyes on how much they really love each other. I am so much happy for the girl because finally she found someone who really deserved to have her. I even forgot to take a pic of them dancing because I was so amazed just watching them danced. I felt honored having been invited as a guest to witness their vows together in marriage. My best wishes to you guys!;)

I left the reception venue with Ate Ces, a person whom I crossed paths with in SPMC. We went to Basti's Brew and we talked for like almost 2 hours!;) We had a great conversation and I learned so much from her!=) So nice to have bumped into her, I found an instant and real person in her.

'went home past 3PM happy. :)

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday.

Just Another Low Moment

I succumb again to another low moment in life. I am attacked with criticisms. What hurts the most is when I can only see myself fighting. Friends are there but so hard to tell them my innermost feelings. Yeah, I am always a listener but when it comes to my friends, I don't think there's someone courageous enough to really listen to what I have to say. In times when I feel so low, I can only think of a few friends who got the heart to listen but sad to note that they're not with me now. They're all living a life abroad! I so missed these people who can really understand how I am feeling.

I know everything happens for a reason and this too will pass!

Wednesday Wickedness: Christine O'Donnell

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wickedness! We are like other memes in that we will ask you ten questions each and every Wednesday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a famous person and pick ten of their quotes. Each of our questions will be based on the quotes. The quotes are in bold. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Christine O'Donnell. Here's Wednesday Wickedness!

1. On why she's anti masturbation: "If he already knows what pleases him and he can please himself, then why am I in the picture?"

2. “Physics put people in spiritual harm the way pimps put people in physical harm.”

Do you think having a sexual fantasy when you're married or part of a couple is wrong? **I think Not.

Have you ever been asked to participate in other than a one on one sexual experience? **No.

7. “I dabbled in witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I'm not making this stuff up."

How different is Sarah Palin's political agenda from your own? ** Same as the above statement, I have my own thoughts about it.

9. "American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains."
What animal would you like your brain cross breed with? ** How about an owl?

How To Remove Images On Google Images Search?

HEEELPPP!

Seriously, I need help with this. I recently googled a certain topic and surprisingly, I saw my pic on its Google Image Search results. I never had an idea since I started blogging that pics being blogged could certainly appear on Google. It's getting me confused. =( I've already deleted pics on that certain post but it still appears on the image search.

Can someone tell me how to remove selected images from the Google Images search results? I surfed through google but I can't simply understand how. I need a step by step instruction on how to do it.

I hope I get an answer to this.

Unforgettable Pinoy Tearjerker Films!

This afternoon is different among all my Sunday afternoons. It's the day I shed tears by just watching two movies in a row! Beat that? Thanks for today because I didn't get any work duty (it's an off day!). I woke up from a graveyard shift and immediately, turned on the TV here in my room.

Getting a first glimpse of Judy Ann on TV made me thought that it must be the movie I'd loved to watch over and over again. True enough, it really was! I made myself comfortable and watched the entire film. Oh well, I was shedding some tears (as expected!). I was in love with Piolo Pascual's personality in the film that I even thought of having someone like him. I loved the 'togetherness' they shared as they both paved their way to Banawe then to Sagada in the film. I've realized that one can actually be drawn to each other when they've shared moments together. I was still in tears when the movie ended up.

The next movie was shown was another tearjerker! This time, it's entitled 'One More Chance', another movie flick when it was released by Star Cinema. As usual, it was again about L.O.V.E. and giving chances on love. Being the emotional person that I am even if I got impressions that I am one of the strongest women known, I was again into tears! I loved the great lines being mentioned by the lead stars. Plus, the theme song of the movie was also great which was performed by Mr. Piolo Pascual. I found the movie so realistic because this type of love story happens in the real world!

Whoa! What really great films to make my afternoon right! It made me realized that I still should believe in love even if I am quite disappointed with love for a very, very long time.

If I'd get to choose which Pinoy films should I watch over and over again, I'd still pick on these two! Kudos to the makers of these films!

No More LATES!=)

Not really important though BUT to me, it is. Haha.

Seriously, I am now trying to go to work as early as possible. I can't afford to get tardy (again!). I've already learned my lesson when I was late for about 30 minutes because I woke up so late after getting back to sleep. I am just happy now that my effort paves off.

So happy!=)

Afternoon Shift Beauty!=)

Sorry for not blogging the past few days!=)
Yours truly can't update it much often because I got PM shifts. I usually leave home at 2PM and go home at most 2AM.=) More time is denoted to sleeping (of course!), which is my way of getting back all my used energies at work. This is the routine I still am trying to cope. With the successive PM shifts that I have in my work sked, perhaps I could manage it in time, I hope in the soonest possible time.

Sunday Stealing: Another 50 Questions Meme, Part One (perhaps!)

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!

Today we ripped this meme of a blogger known as Nigel Vanstone at Away for a Bit. Nigel explains that he was tagged to do the meme, but does not credit the blogger. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. He promises to post the next 25 questions, soon. If he writes them by next Saturday, we will complete his meme. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Fun Filled Friday

I should have posted this last week BUT I got so busy. Thus, I am posting it now.

Two Fridays ago, it was an OFF day. Happiness was all over me because it was the day when my family realized our plan of watching 'The Legend Of The Guardians: The Owl Of Ga'Hoole' on a 3D Cinema. I got so excited because my niece was also with us. We hit the movies with popcorn in our hands on their 6.20PM slot. I really felt comfortable during the whole time while watching because we got the upper deck which is way a bit expensive compared to the lower deck. And the happiest person inside the movie house? It was my niece! :D I also felt happy inside because it was the first time all of us went to the movies with her. Despite the cold temperature inside the cinema, I did enjoy watching the film on 3D.

After watching the film, my family went home except for me who's having another appointment on that same night: a night-out invitation with new friends at work. I arrived past 10PM and they already started singing. It was indeed a night of FUN and LAUGHTER worthy to be remembered!:D





I went home still HAPPY!:D

Why BLUE?

A week ago, I posted an entry about me feeling BLUE. And as promised, here I am now trying to dissect why. It's been a few days and thank GOD, I was able to gather words and put them altogether here.

In my recent posts, I keep on mentioning about lost friendships, etc and yes, this is indeed a friendship that is at the brink of falling out and I guess it really has to end soon. My reasons? I got tired of chasing. I got tired of trying to bridge the gap. I got tired of trying to make it work again. We built friendship and we spent six (6) joyous months just by being happy. We chatted. We talked. We laughed. I was more of a listener which I did enjoy doing and I was a bit of a comforter when the other party got confused. I think I was even a counselor too! However, a trial rocked the friendship. I was solely blamed for it. Those 5 joyous months was outnumbered by seven (7) grueling months of trying to get the friendship back. I begged, I asked, but no action was taken. Silence was the most painful part of the ordeal like you really don't know how the other person is feeling. I was too hopeful because of the assurance that the person will 'always be there' for me. Too bad to realize that it was really just a BIG LIE.

GOD, my family, my work, my friends - so glad that they kept me away from thinking too hard about this ordeal. Moments spent with those 'true' and 'real' people were all superb! Little by little, I gained strength. Each day I face gives me strength. The more I pray to GOD, the more I gained strength. Dealing with people from all walks of life even makes me feel better because I realized that my concern isn't as difficult as theirs.

What made me realized the whole thing? It's when someone of the closest kin warned me not to bother the person anymore cos I might end up getting hurt. Twas like an ice shower was poured all over me when I read her message BUT - I am really, really thankful to her because she's the key opener to how I should really deal with the situation. I admit it was painful reading her message BUT she made me open up my eyes to ever realize everything.

The hurt is still in my heart.
The pain is still there.
But the intensity has lowered, day by day.
I can't wait on the day when I can feel the pain no more.

Living life right now is a bit better. Things have gone better. I am trying to face each new day without ever thinking about the person who really wrecked the friendship himself. The whole experience gave me lessons to learn. I gained strength. I was never a coward but in fact became braver. Thanks to this experience for it resharpened the whole of me as I get to spread my 'shiny wings' again.

To the person who once made this friendship special but is not strong enough to fight and save the friendship, you just honed me to become a strong and a fearless woman who's not afraid to fight with life. =)
