Episode 63 – Thursday, May 5th, 2016 (7065)
It has been 10 months (or approximately 315 days) since I “lost” from being in-love. And within the past 10 months, I’m still waiting and hoping to find the “Right One” in my life. But it has still been nothing. I feel I’m so hopeless to find the right girl to be deserved in my heart more than the last one who just “left” me last June. I tried to explore somebody thru social media, online dating, and looking for a textmate (posting my personal mobile number thru Facebook). But none of these were successful. And the worst was that I had no longer to socialize and to contact with my friends (mostly from The Feast) because of my depression.
Aside of being loveless that I’ve experienced right now, distractions are always present, not only in home, but also in the national scenes. The rise of AlDub (a loveteam that composed of actor Alden Richards and newcomer Maine Mendoza, known as Yaya Dub) last July hurt me a lot. It had been only a month after the break-up when they rose into popularity making most Filipinos crazy, kilig and in-love while I was heartbroken and loveless, fresh from break-up. Not only that, the pabebe wave, the love songs (particularly “God Gave Me You” by Bryan Adams), and the sweet moments made me so distracted and irritated. Because of these, my beloved mother became a “die-hard” fan of these, watching them on TV every day. Another thing is my jobless elder brother who always calls my nickname sounds a goat. This made me so irritated that he “bullies” me every time when he calls my name.
The AlDub fever (where my mother always watches), having noisy at home, and bullying from my elder brother are the distractions in my life right now after the break-up. I supposed to make myself to be peaceful at home when these things distract me. How can I move on when they’re so annoying?!!! That’s why, almost every weekend or rest day, I always go away from home to gather at the mall or, mostly, to stay at the office ALONE to have my temporary freedom.
But these situations that make me hopeless are just temporary… hopefully.
I’m so thankful that, despite of these distractions in my life, I still keep praying to receive more blessings from God. Attending at The Feast is the only way to make myself happy, optimistic and peaceful. While I’m continuing to attend, I’m still praying for HOPE: hoping to have freedom from the distractions, hoping to increase my finances, and of course, hoping to find one true love for my future family. Praying and believing in faith are my only HOPE to achieve my dreams into the reality. Kaya tiwala lang!

Hope for this year’s election
Just few days away before the Election Day, I just want to have some judgment on this year’s presidential election in our beloved country.
I’ve noticed in the past several days that most Filipinos keep posting on their own opinions on social media. Some of them are arguing on other fellow Filipinos for choosing their favorite candidates. Some are attacking a TV network that they said it has “bias” reporting regards to the presidential debate and election-related news. Others are being “brainwashed” by the unknown creating malicious news or something that they will believe without any proof. And the worst, some are bullying on one other, especially to the celebrities (or even ordinary people) who support their presidential bet.
That’s why I don’t really like to read the bad and negative comments of our Filipino people especially those are bashers, haters and “bandwagoners” in social media (I decided to “unfollow” some of my friends who keep posting “non-sense” information about elections on Facebook). These are their own opinions that I respect though, but why do they arguing and bullying each other regards to their own bet? That’s so wasted! Why do they need to argue, not just in personal, but thru social media? If I know them to be religious (praying at the church every Sunday or reading bible), why are they still bashing on one another? Gosh! I so hate these non-sense people!
But for me, I keep my silence on this year’s presidential election. Although I’m rarely vocal to share my opinion to my friends especially in social media, I don’t like to argue with others regardless to their own choice of becoming the next president of our beloved nation. We, our Filipinos, must respect our own opinions to choose the right president. And whatever the “stupid” and malicious information from the bashers and haters about the candidates is, we must IGNORE them!
Anyway, we let pray and hope for this coming Monday, May 9th to have safe and peaceful election and we also pray our beloved Filipino people to vote wisely for the right candidate to become our new leaders nationally and locally. Let us HOPE that these five qualified candidates will be blessed, and one of them will be deserved to be the next president of our beloved nation. And there’s a HOPE for our nation into a bright future whoever will win in this presidential race.
