City

April 29, 2010

I hate to think about it,
But there’s nothing I can do.
It’s the truth, and I have to face it.
I’m a thousand miles away from you.

I left, but you can’t blame me.
It’s just what I should do.
I know we are meant to be,
But here I am, away from you.

I miss everything about you
When will we see each other again?
There’s one thing I want to tell you:
I’ll love you now and then.

I didn’t mean to leave suddenly,
And stay some place miles away.
One day, I’ll be back to be free,
And forever I shall stay.

So promise me you’ll wait for me,
And one day we’ll be together.
Let’s just wait and see,
For soon, we’d be happy forever.

~~~

When I wrote this poem, I was away from the city, having a vacation in a small province where my grandmother came from. Since I am such a city girl, I wrote this because I felt like I was away from a place that was very dear to me.

A Dose of Vampires

April 28, 2010

Since I have been watching the Vampire Diaries lately, I feel like I should also try to share it to the people I know. Of course, I can’t share the links for the videos because I don’t have any video. What I do have are the books. Well, e-books, actually. But I want to share it to whoever wants to read it. Below are the links for the first six books of The Vampire Diaries. There is a seventh book, but it’s not due to come out until next year. I hope you guys enjoy!! 🙂

Me as a Dolphin

April 27, 2010

I may have bored you all with stories about my life. After all, this is a personal blog, right? It’s not surprising to find that almost everything in this post is about me or connected to my life at least. But I am changing that for today. Well, I’m not completely changing it because I still want to talk about me for the first few paragraphs.

As a girl, I have always loved dogs. There is just something about them that warms my heart. They are like humble little servants who love you in every way another human could never do so (and that is loving you without any question or complaint). I grew up having pets for playmates because I was a surprisingly shy person when I was younger.

However, if somebody asks me what kind of animal would I most likely compare myself to, my answer wouldn’t be a dog. I compare myself to a dolphin. I guess I realized that somewhere between being a career worker and a writer. Dolphins are people pleasers. Whenever they feel like there’s a ship that’s traveling in the ocean, they show up and do their acrobatic tricks. I don’t do that, but I like to please people. I like it when people are happy because I did something for them.

What about you? To what animal can you compare yourself to? What is it about that animal that is similar to your personality?

The Spirit

April 26, 2010

We don’t always get what we want. That’s a fact. Songs have been written because of that fact. But I always believe that it is still up to us to decide what we can get. We can’t get everything, but we certainly can choose what we get. That’s the gift of free will. We were all given that.

Isn’t it so amazing that we get to be who we want to be?

Marie and Coleen

April 25, 2010

April is almost over. Before we say goodbye to this hot month, I want to greet two of my closest friends on their birthday. Marie and Coleen. Marie celebrated her birthday April 13. Coleen, on the other hand, is celebrating her happy day today.

These two girls have taught me so much when we still used to work together. I absolutely miss their company and the affectionate banter. I would not have stayed in TeleTech as long as I had not met two such wonderful friends (as I said, I am lucky when it comes to friends).

Belated Happy Birthday Marie, and Happy Birthday, Coleen!!!!! 🙂

Metered

April 24, 2010

Finally, the weekend is here. It is really funny how short weekends are. I don;t even get to appreciate it much these days. Anyway, I am still thankful I still get to have weekends off. Other need to work on weekends because they get their rest days on a weekday. Fortunately, I have graduated from that kind of work.

I am also being so paranoid lately with our energy usage. I keep on checking how many kilowatts we have already used so far. I even go to a point where I calculate our consumption everyday. I just don’t want to ever experience the same thing as last month, when our bill skyrocketed to PHP 2200.

I wish everybody will have a weekend as wonderful as mine. 🙂

Perfect Poet Acceptance

April 23, 2010

I wanted to post this together with my poem. However, I wanted my friends to just read the poem, without getting any explanation or introduction. I want them to just read the poem and decide for themselves what it was about, what the emotions were about. I wanted to leave them feeling the same thing as the person in the poem felt. If I was able to do that, then I am happy.

I still have obligations to fulfill, though, for my Thursday friends. Kokot was kind enough to nominate me as a perfect poet last week. It is my responsibility to pass it on to one poet this week, so that poet can celebrate the same happiness that I have now.

Here is my nomination, then:

I nominate Adam Dustus

I am sure that a lot of people will definitely agree with my nomination. Have fun, folks. This is the reason why we blog and write poems, right? xoxo
