I Heart Facebook

** Blog has moved to **

facebook-logo.jpgThere are many people who hate Facebook and hate the fact that it just contains way too much information about your life, friends, affiliations, etc.

I, however, have grown to love it. I've been able to locate many people with whom I'd lost touch with over the years.. People I went to high school with and had no clue where life had taken them.

Yesterday, was the icing on the cake. My best friend from 3rd/4th grade tracked me down! Upon adding her, I found another friend from that time period whom I hadn't heard from since 1984!!!

Thank you Facebook.

Super Virus!


I used to take pride in the fact that I rarely used to get sick. My best streak was 3 years without getting ill.

This year is payback it seems! I've been sick 3 times already and I feel the 4th coming on. I'm taking meds and vitamins to try to fight off the bug before it totally takes over my system. Fingers crossed that I win.

Anyone else experiencing anything similar?

Hairy Matter

** blog has moved to **

So when did big spiky hair become fashion for boys? (I say boys because I just cannot associate a 'man' with hair like that!)

Regular spiky hair is fine, but have you gone to the mall recently? It's like they're competing against each other on who can get the higher standing, gel drenched, non-manly hair style possible!

Step away from that gel! Please.

Matter of Trust

password_star.jpgSome couples share their passwords as a sign of trust. I know of girls who actually log on to their significant others' accounts (email, messenger, etc) and actually chat with people on their list without disclosing that it's her not him on the account - on a regular basis!

Here's a bit of advice: if you need to reach to those lengths to make sure he's not cheating on you, he should dump you faster than he can blink! There's nothing healthy about a relationship like that.

Another Year Bites the Dust!

**Blog has moved to **

pea0321peanuts-celebrate-the-little-things-posters.jpgAs each year approaches its end, I find myself bewildered at how fast time had flown. It surely can't be another year's end? I then recall what I had thought I'd accomplish during the year. Without fail, reality always falls short of my expectations.

This coming year, 2009, I will expect nothing. Surely, without expectations, one "shouldn't" get disappointed.. right? (Dammit! Expecting nothing is still an expectation?! Uff.. back to the drawing board!)

Enjoy what's left of 2008! It's not over till it's over.

Annoying Sounds!

annoyed-smiley.jpgI was in the middle of a conversation when this noise in the background started to distract me. It was incessant and started to really get on my nerves. As I turned towards the source, I realized... it was my alarm clock waking me up from a dream!

confused___by_mushy_pea.jpgSo you think the World owes you something.. and you somehow think that you've done nothing to deserve what has happened to you. You feel like you're the victim and people just don't truly appreciate you for who you are and what you stand for.

Stop complaining!
If you feel you've gotten the short end of the stick, go and get a bigger stick. If you feel like he/she isn't treating you right, then either fix it or walk away. If you feel confused because you aren't sure where you stand, ask.

Yes, it's always easier said than done, but 'doing' isn't impossible. It just takes determination. So next time you start feeling sorry for yourself, use that energy to do rather than feel.

Iron Man

ironmanmovieposter.jpg I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie, but I loved it. Robert Downey Jr was terrific! Not so sure about Gweneth Paltrow though.

Can't wait for the second part! Hope they maintain a similar standard.

How Much?


We all have a certain number of nerves and some people manage to work your last one. My question is, how much is too much? How much can you tolerate - whether it be a person, a job, a situation you're dealing with? And has your tolerance level changed over the years?

Personally, I used to put up with so much. No clue how I did it. Eventually, I guess I realized how rare a commodity time is. Hence, my tolerance took a steep drop. Yet, I wonder sometimes, has it gone too far? How do you know when your tolerance level is too low and impractical?

Throughout life, we meet many different types of people. Some who leave absolutely no mark, some who entertain us for a while, and some who leave ever lasting impressions. Regardless of the circumstances, it is important to meet all those different types as they help mold your outlook towards life and make you appreciate the good people in your life even more.

Thing is, there are many times where we let our emotions and fears override everything else. Don't get me wrong, I'm an advocate of emotion. Without it, not much differentiates us from a rock on the street. Yet, we need to develop over time some sensor that enables us to control that emotion enough so that it doesn't rule our life. Why? Because emotions have a way of blinding our vision and making us take decisions that we may regret later on when the emotions have cooled off or subsided.

That said, it's always easier said than done. It just takes time and experience to eventually teach us the hard way. For me, sometimes it's a matter of weighing things out and some people are just not worth losing over emotions that we can't control.

Are You in Denial?

A few weeks ago I bumped into an old schoolmate I hadn't seen in ages. Stopped to say hello and how long it's been when she told me, "I know all about you!!" That caught me off guard.

Her: "You have a blog, don't you?"
Me: "No!"

I have no idea why I said no! It was an automatic and instant response.

She then explained how she came to that conclusion, all of which made perfect sense! But by then, I felt stupid. I couldn't go back and say, "Yeah, it's me. I lied." I had to continue denying it, all the while thinking "why?!" It's not like I write about anything personal or about anything I would mind others knowing about.

So, this goes out to you, if you're reading. Yes, it's me! And yes, everything you said and your conclusions were right on! :)

Missed Me?

317803-twin-towers-kuwait-0.jpgDon't ask where I've been for the past two months.. cuz I wouldn't know where to begin to be honest. Am I back again? Probably not. Just wanted to pop by to say hi and that I'll try my best to start writing again. No promises though :)

I'm currently in Kuwait & enjoying my time catching up with some friends. To those girls I've seen, it's been WONDERFUL seeing you! You're simply amazing.

The End..

Heath Ledger!

_1374866_heath_150.jpg28 year old actor, Heath Ledger, was found dead in his New York apartment yesterday afternoon. There has been no determination of the cause of his death, however, perscription and sleeping pills were found on the scene.

It's nothing new for young actors/actresses to be found dead, but this one totally surprised me!

The Battle!

It's that time of year again: SUPERBOWL!

My Indianapolis Colts unfortunately didn't make it to the AFC Championship Title Game. Peyton Manning once again choked against the Chargers! But, the Manning household still has something to celebrate. While Peyton brought home the trophy last year, it's his younger brother Eli who's heading to the Superbowl this year!

eli-manning-nyg.jpgEli Manning's NY Giants upset the Green Bay Packers last night, winning the NFC Title and earning their ticket to the Bowl. While I normally root for the AFC team, this year is different.tom-brady.jpg

Brady just seems to have it all. He's won 3 Superbowls, 2 Superbowl MVP awards, broke several records, AND has had a perfect season so far! To top it off, he used to date Bridget Moynahan and is with Gisele now! Come on, no guy should have that much luck!

a54817.jpgIt's amazing how one person can make such a big difference in your life. You wake up one day to find that all the pieces somehow fit together. Suddenly, it doesn't matter what life has to offer because you have something that no one can take away from you.

Thank you for being all that you are.

Old is Gold

gold3.jpgThere's a negative stigma surrounding age and I honestly think it's overrated. I can understand in the past that age was a taboo because the style of life was very different. These days though, age is no longer an obstacle to anything (except some biological restrictions)!

So, I am here today to celebrate age and the finer things that come along with it. I won't speak on behalf of men, so from a woman's point of view:

* Less Tolerant: While that may seem like a negative thing, it's not. It's a blessing in disguise. No tolerance for stupidity, fake-ness, or pointless anything. Let's get down to business people.

* More Stable: We don't need anyone to reassure us of what we mean to them and how great we are. We are secure; we know our true worth and are comfortable with our flaws.

* Sense of Direction: We know where we are in life, what we want, and most importantly, what we don't want! We may not always know how to get there, but at least we have a direction in mind.

* Independent: We don't 'need' to be given things. We know how to get them ourselves. Of course, that said, it is still always nice to get stuff, so don't assume that we'll say no.

* No-Whining: We don't need to whine. We'll tell you how it is, straight up. We have no issues about being honest. It's up to you to decide what you want to do or not do about it.

The list goes on, but it's cold and this is as far as my brain can go at this point in time.

sbtiredslumpinchair.jpgI don't mind winter but my body just doesn't react well to it! I become so lazy and lethargic it's not even funny. To top things off, even though my eating habits haven't changed, I somehow automatically gain weight during the cold season!

I think I need to go into hibernation for a while. Check on me every now and then.

Hello 2008

hislight.jpgI had decided not to write a new year post. Then I went back to read what I'd written last year. It's interesting to travel back in time and see through your own words what emotional state you were in!

Since I had talked about recycling in that post, I will re-use a few things that I had said back then, as they still apply today:

"May you be blessed with the wisdom that life is not about eternity. It’s about those moments that make it all worth while.

Everything will one day come to an end. May we all be prepared for that."
