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 211 – Friday, February 2nd, 2018 (7703)
Round 1 of 2018 has been done.
After celebrating New Year on the midnight of January 1, people feel they’re back to normal in the next following days. The first month has been somewhat a little bit ordinary for me. Although it’s still pretty much the same as last year, there were some happenings that I might be glad with some worries in my friendship and at my work.
Like my yearend report that I publish every end of the year, there’s the best… and also there’s the worst. I’m just starting the worst thing happened in my life in the month of January. Continue reading “My First Month Review”
Episode 210 – Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 (7694)
In the past 7 years since I graduated from college, I have worked hard to achieve my dreams for my family and also for my future. But what happened to my career life throughout 7 years? Hmmm… still no progress! While some of my former college classmates and friends have already enjoyed their better lives because of their good job such as promotions or level-up into higher position and better salary, my career life has been somewhat the same as what I first started to work back in late 2010, thanks to those who “ruined” my career. The worst times that I had happened just last year when I became jobless and having hard time finding a new job. Until last November, I finally got a new job in Pasay; however, things might be worse for me because of uncomfortable job position that I ever have right now.
I don’t know what I am explaining about, but why doesn’t my career life become successful so far? Has this been worsened because of those distractions in the past 7 years that bother my future goals? Well, I will discuss for this episode where my career life doesn’t grow into the fullest because of these situations. Continue reading “My Career Life Has Been Worsened (?)”
Episode 208 – Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 (7687)
It has been days after the year 2018 started. And I’m not pretty sure if it will be a great year for me because I still have problems that carried over from last year (or even 2016 or after June 2015 – the end of my (long distance) love life). Although my happiness has been somewhat restored thanks to my “special friend” who always contacts me thru Facebook messenger, there are still struggles especially in my family at home. As you know, I have no privacy at my Tent Office which will turn 20 years old (I’ll discuss this in July 2018) and lots of distraction at home where there’s not really enough to have a free time of my own. Utos pa more! Hehehe!
And speaking of 2018, I can’t believe that it has been 10 years ago, in 2008, when I started this series where I wrote the past experiences in my life in 5, 10, and 15 years ago. I was still in college back then, and my life was somewhat better even though my father was too pessimistic back then at home. And because the year 2018 has been fresh, I just want to share the past experiences and happenings around my life within 5-year interval.
Like most of my past episodes of this series (in early January and July), I had written it as “5-10-15-20” where I described my life in the past 5, 10, 15, and 20 years ago. But this time, I’m going to add the events that occurred in my life 25 years ago (which was 1993, and most of you hadn’t been born yet). Well, before going back in my “time machine”, I will share my present life this 2018: Continue reading “My Life 5-10-15-20-25 Years Ago (for 1st Half of 2018)”
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 202 – Sunday, December 24th, 2017 (7663)
It has been a long time that I hadn’t made latest episodes for my journal (blog). I have been fatigue from 6-day working week as a graphic artist (really?) plus attending/serving at Feast SM Santa Rosa as a media/visual operator (Sis Lou always asks me to operate for visuals almost every Sunday because most of the servants are not available due of their prior commitments or hard to wake up so early, so ako nalang palagi ganun? Hehehe). And even at home, I can’t make myself an enough full rest because of distractions and doing some house tasks. Oh well, I’m so restless in the past few weeks especially this Christmas season.
But anyways, today is Christmas Eve, and I’m pretty sure that most of you are now preparing for noche buenas and attending for the Christmas mass tonight with a nice cool weather (although it’s quite rainy). But one Sunday ago, it was a great day for me because I never thought that I was so happy to have special occasions – Advent Recollection and a “date” with my new friend. That day made me to forget the stress and the fatigue that I had in the past week because of these despite of being tired, thanks to my 6-day working schedule in Pasay about 24 miles away from home and commute every day in a poor public transport system in the Philippines (long waiting queue at the bus terminal because there are no buses). In this episode, I just share about my wonderful moments happened last Sunday. Continue reading “My Most Wonderful Sunday Ever”
