Last Hurrah

December 31, 2009

I am welcoming the new year tonight. I am excited for so many new things that, I am sure, 2010 will bring. As for this blog, since we are now saying goodbye to Christmas and to 2009, I will also change my theme. Goodbye Vermilion Christmas. I’ll be looking for a new them to use for my blog. I hope I find something that I can use for the whole year through.

My neighbors are outside having a little party. I’ll be joining them in a while. I won’t be blogging until tomorrow. Once gaina, Happy New Year. May we all have peace and happiness all year round. 🙂


Sick and Busy

December 30, 2009

I am busy preparing things for tomorrow. New Yera has always been my favorite holiday. I love it, even more than I love Christmas. Yes, Christmas means a lot to my religion because it is the day that the Lord was born. It is the day that the One who will save everybody was born into this wretched little world. But New Year for me brought in hope.

For me, the start of a new year brings in a new wave of hope- hope that the next year will be so much better, hope that everything else will be okay, hope that all the pain and hurt will heal in the coming of the new year. I am not sure how other people look at it, but that’s how I define and celebrate the New Year.

A decade has passed since we all celebrate the dawn of the new millennium. Back then, we all thought that the end of the world was near. Yeas, while I am not denying that our world can end anytime, I will not also take it away fromt he people who want to live their lives as fully and as joyously as they can.

To everyone else, Happy New Year!!!


Because Sometimes You Need To Be Sarcastic…

December 29, 2009

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

Learn from your parents’ mistakes, use birth control!

The universe is laughing behind your back.

Honesty is the best policy but insanity is the best defense.

I’m not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Love your enemies.. it pisses them off.

I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Don’t take life too seriously, you won’t get out alive.

You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

The trouble with life is there’s no background music.

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until they speak.

Living on Earth is expensive, but it does include a free trip around the sun.

People are seldom too busy to stop and tell you how busy they are.

The number one problem in our country is apathy, but who cares!

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.

Time is the best teacher; Unfortunately it kills all its students!

Why do people who know the least know it the loudest?

I was wondering why frisbees got bigger as they got closer then it hit me.


Books to Read

December 28, 2009

I am currently trying to compile a list of books that I am planning to read for 2010. I don’t care if they are classical, non-fiction, or thriller. As long as they are good reads, I’d gladly spend precious time poring over the pages. I have already come up with several; however, I still think that there are so many other books that are begging to be read.

I came across this list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die. I have to say that I have only read a few out of the entire list. I’ll include some of the book from that list on my 2010 list. If anyone of you have some suggestions, you are most welcome to comment or send me a message. Thanks all!!!

God bless us all. Don’t forget to thank God for the blessings and good things we have received today.



December 27, 2009

Five more days and we’ll finally say goodbye to year 2009. I can’t say I’m too excited. 2009 has been such a blessed and fruitful year for me. I have had so much good things happen this year. I guess maybe I feel like the year went by without me noticing. But as much as I want to stay in 2009 forever, I have to be brave and move on. I can only hope that the next year will be just as good.

As the year comes to an end, I also want to make sure that I haven’t forgotten to say my thanks to GOD, who has given me all the blessings this year.I will never be where I am now without Him. I also want to make sure that for 2010, I will be a better person. I will work hard to be who I am meant to be. I will love twice as deep, laugh twice as hard, sing twice as loud, dance twice as much, and live twice as well.

To all my friends and family, may you all be blessed and happy all throughout your lives. May you always have peace and love in your hearts. et us all live life the way we were meant to do so. I love you all, and God bless!!!!


The One

December 26, 2009

The night’s dawning now, baby,
As I watch you sleep beside me,
And then I say my prayers for you,
Knowing that we’ll see things through.

There’s so much that I want right now,
So much that I wish for somehow.
But you’ll never hear me say these things,
But then again you already know my feelings.

I want to be the one who holds your hand
When things are rough, and it’s hard to stand.
I want to be the one who’s with you
When all your dreams start coming true.

I want to be the one who’s with you each night,
The one who makes the wrong things right,
The one who takes away all your fears,
The one who will wipe away your tears.

I want to be the one you dream about,
The one you just couldn’t do without,
The one who will always be with you,
The one who will never make you feel blue.

I want to be the one who will always care,
The one who will always be there,
The one who wears your wedding ring,
Your one and only, your everything.

I want to be the right one for you,
The one who can see you through,
And baby, if it ever happens that we’re apart,
I want to be the one who’s holding your heart.


After Forever

December 25, 2009

Ask me how I love you,
And I wouldn’t even know where to start
Because that’s all that I ever do
From the deepest cores of my heart.

Ask me until when I shall love you,
And forever will prove to be so short a time.
I shall love you but through and through.
It shall never waver, even for a while.

Ask me what shall set us part.
Neither death nor time can do it all.
You live forever inside my heart.
I shall love you even after forevermore.

Ask me anything to prove that I love you,
And you would run out of things to ask me.
Still I would have many answers for you,
Because in love with you is all I’d be.

If Fate shall have it, and I should die,
Even after I have had my last breath,
Not even God could answer why
I shall love you more and better after death.

Where will I find poetry
If you are all of literature to me?
You are the sun; you are the moon.
Everything that gives beauty to life is you.
Where will I find music
If you are all the melody that soothes me?
You are my heart and my soul,
Everything I wanted and more.

Where will I find a real work of art
If you are the colors I need in my heart?
You are the sky when the skies are blue.
You are warmth when the sky turns a grayish hue.

Where will I find paradise
If you are all that’s heavenly in my eyes?
You are all the things both real and untrue.
My heart lies restless unless it finds you.

And tell me where will I find you
If the whole world’s where you walk through?
You are the earth, the air, and the seas to me.
You’re all that I see and all I ever need to see.


Love- Based on Kahlil Gibran’s Poem

December 24, 2009

It is not easy to love. Loving someone means that you are making yourself vulnerable. Even if that person hurts us, we have no reason to complain. When we love, we always have to expect the pain that comes with it. But love may not hurt sometimes. There are times when love just simply heals.

In our lives, we will always love someone who will hurt us one way or another. On the other hand, we will also meet that one person who will heal all the pain. Loving is not just a phase. It is a cycle. When we love, we are healed and hurt to the same extent. Love hurts us because we need to be polished, to be humbled until we are selfless enough to want nothing but the good of those we love. Love also heals for us to have more courage, more determination to keep loving.

The only question is: Are we brave enough to love even if we know what we’re risking? Are we worthy enough to find a love that hurts and heals for us to become better persons? Not everybody is blessed enough to find a love that endures and perseveres even with all the pain. If we are lucky to find this love, we should never let it go. Never mind that we also get hurt along the way. What matters is that we know how to love, and as a bonus, we are loved in return.

I am going to include a poem written by one of my heroes, Kahlil Gibran. This is a poem about love. I was really touched by this poem. I hope that whoever gets to read this poem will also understand the meaning of the entire poem. Happy reading everyone!!!

When love beckons to you, follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.

And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

And when he speaks to you believe in him,

Though his voice may shatter your dreams

as the north wind lays waste the garden.


For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.


Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

He threshes you to make you naked.

He sifts you to free you from your husks.

He grinds you to whiteness.

He kneads you until you are pliant;

And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.


All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.


But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

For love is sufficient unto love.


When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”

And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.


Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.


Blind World

December 23, 2009

An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind. 

-Khalil Gibran

 How many times have we tried to avenge the wrongs that were done to us? We always follow that famous line, “An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth.” But is it really right? If we do so, are we really easing the pain?

Kahlil Gibran is one of my personal heroes. I admire him. I admire the way he thinks, and I completely agree with this quote. I think that he has it spot on. If we seek revenge everytime we get hurt, then the whole world would be hurting right now.

 We should really think hard before we do anything. In life, there will always be people who hurt us. There will always be those assholes who treat us like worthless junk. There will always be men who act like jerks and break our hearts. There will always be friends who are more envious than supportive.

 In spite of all that, our purpose on this earth does not change. We are here to make the world a better place. That should be the only thing that matters. People will always be people, whether they are here to hurt or heal. But OUR own lives should be spent in healing or helping others.

 Think about it. If we have to get even for everytime that we are aggreviated, then twe would all be hurting at least one person that we know. This whole world would be blind, and there’s no such fun living in a world where people could not see anything. We have such a beautiful world. There are so many other things to focus on other than the hurt. Life is too short. Why don’t we live it?
