Episode 220 – Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 (7750)
Until now, I’m still (and desperately) looking for the “right one” that will love me truly as my future partner forever. However, there are some distractions that I can’t be able to find someone because of the instances that she’s not the right one for me. Someone tells me that I can’t be able to have a formal courtship to some single ladies out there because I’m “weak”, shy or whatever they’re telling me that I don’t really like to hear their reactions or suggestions which makes me so distracting and disappoint. While I’m writing (or typing) on my laptop, I don’t realize that I’ve been still single for the last 1,000 days! Woah! I can’t believe that I have still no girlfriend for thousand days (about almost 33 months or 2.75 years). That’s really a milestone for me as a single young man.
Reaching a milestone makes me happy but sad because I’m still single, having no girlfriend or love life until now. In this episode, I’m now sharing my past experiences happened within 1,000 days after the break of long distance relationship (LDR) and the beginning of Post-LDR Era. I just made my timeline from Day 1 of becoming single and no love relationship at all until this day. Continue reading “#1000Days”
Episode 206 – Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 (7672)
(This was supposed to be published before the New Year, but because I had other commitments and tiredness from work within the final week of December, this was already overdue to release this episode on my Journal. Sorry for this delay.)
The year 2017 was somewhat challenging in my life most especially in my working career. There were lots of changes that crumbled my mind from one job to another. And yeah, this was the year where I became jobless for months after my wonderful days in San Pedro and finding a job that made me so inconvenient.
I think most the days of 2017 were boring because I had no job, been hard to find a good job, and had boredom at home with lots of distractions. Well, I just want to share my experience about my career in 2017. Continue reading “My 2017 Yearend Review: My Working Career – From Comfort to Discomfort”
Episode 205 – Sunday, December 31st, 2017 (7670)
It has been already the final day of 2017! How time flies! I have experienced the happiness, the struggles, and the unexpected surprises happened from Day 1 until the last day of 2017.It’s like there were ups and downs that I ever had in my life throughout 2017, and I have overcome these in the past 365 days of this year.
Oh well, 2017 might be better compared to 2016, but it’s not enough to be considered as my best year (like what I had in 2014) because of the struggles that I had especially in the middle of the year. Being jobless, sickness and distractions at home, and lack of communication either personal or thru social media were the worst things happened in 2017. However, happiness and gratitude have been my best things that I ever have (especially lately in December).
As my yearender special for this coming New Year, I just want to share my best and my worst happenings in the year 2017: Continue reading “My 2017 Yearend Review: The Best and The Worst”
Episode 198 – Thursday, November 23rd, 2017 (7632)
Earlier this month, I finally got a new job somewhere in Pasay City where I worked, not only in designing, but also making printing collaterals as well. However, my new job is too far away from home, about 25 miles away, which is quite inconvenient because of long travel with heavy traffic (although I have some plans to rent a bedspace or a room), and my working schedule is 6 days per week which makes me so tired to work and getting rest for only one day. But I need a new job because of my future or else my life will be devastated forever! Oh well, I had been jobless for months before I finally found the new one which is far different from my old beloved job in San Pedro.
To be honest, I still can’t move on from my previous job in San Pedro, Laguna where I could stay there anytime, explore internet, watching sports via live streaming, use and chat on Facebook, and lots more which gave me a freedom to do anything at the workplace especially while waiting for a work task. Just imagine that, during the first months of 2017, I had worked for the longest time in San Pedro with lots of convenience, and then right now, I’m now working in a printing company in Pasay with some restrictions and restless jobs (imagine 6 working days!). From comfort to somewhat discomfort in the workplace though. Continue reading “My 5 Most Memorable Moments at My Old Job in San Pedro”
Episode 191 – Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 (7602)
In the past few weeks, I was getting around in the City of Pasay, about 25 miles from my home in Santa Rosa, Laguna, to have some interviews for my next job. This city had many memories for me especially in my past school life because it was the place where I studied at Philippine School for the Deaf (PSD) for 10 long years (1994-2004). When I came back home from my wonderful life in the United States in July 2005, the place had been forgotten in my new life (in Post-Deaf World Era) even though I barely went there just to ride a bus from Buendia terminal. Back in 2010, when I was working at a deaf travel agency in Mandaluyong, my deaf boss accompanied me to go somewhere in Pasay (almost near PSD) to look something, but we didn’t stay there for so long. From that time until 2016, I had only few times going or visiting the place to explore or to attend some events particularly from Light of Jesus Family of Bro. Bo Sanchez (such as Grand Easter Feast or Kerygma Conference). Continue reading “Exploring Pasay City (Plus Job Training)”
Episode 186 – Wednesday, September 27th, 2017 (7575)
In my current situation, I feel unhappy because of many struggles and problems that I’ve faced right now. Health problems in my family have affected my life at home because of my eldest sister suffering her illness. Distractions are always there especially at home because of my elder brother who has been jobless for three years where his bedroom is “shared” my bedroom thru one door and of my parents. And I have been exhausted in waiting for some miracles in my life because until now I still have no job (for 5-6 months) and no girlfriend (for 27 months) at all. That’s why my life has been so boring right now because of these freaking problems making my happiness ruined.
But there are things that I might be thinking of. These situations might not happen if I supposed to live in a comfortable and happy life and the distractions won’t come. What if… all these things that already happened in my life didn’t happen at all? What if… I might not be the same as what I have been right now? And what if… these good and wonderful things that I had before still exist until now?
Since I have been living in the City of Santa Rosa, Laguna for 25 years (actually just 24 and I’ll explain it later on), I just want to share about 25 what ifs that might change my entire life forever. These might alter my present life in the fullest. Few of these are already discussed in my past episodes in this blog, but I now explain more alternate scenarios that might not be the same as what I have right now.

Episode 176 – Monday, August 14th, 2017 (7531)
I’m so bored, and I can’t make my own free and relaxing time at home because of many distractions. At one time, I found an old movie from my laptop that I got from my former mentor and friend from the Feast four years ago. I already watched this movie before, but I just want to replay a Christian movie entitled “Facing The Giants” (2006) where one man coaching American football team in high school had many struggles in his life especially for his struggling team. But when he was tired for his struggles, he found himself miserable and started reading Holy Bible. Thus, it was the beginning of unexpected blessings in his life. After having a losing streak, he shared God’s words to his football players and made them into motivation leading his team to win several games en route to the championship (his underdog team, called as the Eagles, upset the heavy-favored Giants a.k.a. “Superteam Monstars” that choked and blew 23-14 lead, hehehe). His old car was replaced into new ones. And his wife became pregnant after failing many times. While I was watching that movie, I felt a mix of tears and joy because he, who was struggling in the beginning, began his winning streak to achieve his triumph.
