Goodbyes and Epitaphs

Today is the last day of one of my officemates, one of the first few friends I made here in my new work. The funny thing though, we used to be classmates in one of my PE back in college days. Philippine Games. At susme, 4th year na ata ko nun at 1st year lang sya. And I never forget faces, kaya when I saw him natuwa naman ako hehe.

on his last day in the office, he sent me this via YM:

josecarlodepano: marye, thanks for everything ha. I'll certainly miss you and your sweet smiles. :)

See you in UP Sir Carlo haha!

Anyway, nobody died. But the title's quite apt since today is Halloween and tomorrow's All Souls Day naman. So, BOO yah all. Happy trick or treating! Me? I'm gonna run later. My first Night Fun Run. Hope to enjoy it even though my upper body part aches. Ow, ow.

Who's the Right One Anyway?

Uhmm..the Twilight of their generation hehe. I think its kinda good, aside from the fact that the kid having that "almost white blond" hair which made him even cuter haha. Plus, this time it's the girl who does the action, i mean vampiric actions. Bella Swan who? :p

On Why It Hurts..

..because I can't look you in the eye without feeling guilty. I can't even talk you cos it already equates to betrayal.

Of prayers..

I'm not a religious person, that I'm sure of. 10 or 11 years ago, I could've passed as one what with growing up with a hardcore strict Catholic grandmother. And then I went to UP. And all else sailed out of the window..except my personal virtues, of course they're intact. I never believed that you have to go to the church to ask for forgiveness, to thank the higher deity. We can all do that while we are walking, or eating, or just sitting. It doesn't have to be an obligation to seek Church's approval for everything because if that is the case then everyone would've gone nuts and this planet would be in chaos.

It is enough to know and acknowledge that there is Someone out there, far more intellectual, understanding, forgiving, kind, generous and forgiving. It will blow my mind just to think what or who could possibly be the reason for everything. I know my brain capacity limit. We all are gifted to think for ourselves and it is up to us if we shall accept truth over lies, beauty over ugliness, peace over war, love over hatred.

I know I'm digressing and this isn't a normal entry for me for I try to never start my sentences with "I" but since this day isn't like any other day, I shall let it pass.

All my love and prayer to Tita Babeth..One of the best mothers I've ever met. Get well soon tita..

Stay strong Kimimay..

Blog Action Day 2008

Today is Blog Action day.

Uhmm..wala akong makwento as of now. Pero gusto ko talagang mag-participate dito kasi para saan pa't nagka-blog nga di ba. Anyway, my only say in this is that, we can overcome this...someday. Kung kelan man yung someday na yun aba, yun lang ang problema. I believe that Jose Rizal wasn't exaggerating when he put his hopes and faith on the future generation. It is in our hands to overcome poverty. It is such a delicate issue (at least to those who are experiencing it) and I for one has seen and felt what it was like to live in total poverty. Pero gusto ko lang sabihin that I am way better off than most other people out there. What I experienced, even if in my opinion was the worst days of my life, it is NOTHING compared to what millions of people are going through.

Kaya mga bata, ubusin ang pagkain sa inyong plato, do not buy excessively, use only what you need, donate at least once in your lifetime, do not give alms to street children (instead give them foods) and thank the Lord above that you have roof over your head and food to put in your mouth.

Taralets Run!

Perstaym ko sumali sa running event. Well, it was a personal goal kaya i made it come true. Leche parang "i'll make your dream come true" event lang. But anyway, it was fun dahil unang-una sino ba mag-aakala na tatakbo ko sa event na ito with my erm..boyps haha. Not me. Surprise. Nwey, I was also with the human R & K na naiwan somewhere sa likod dahil nagphoto-ops pa nyaha. Til our next run!

Nagpapichur sa Kenyan runner na itow (dyaske di man lang natin natanong pangalan nya!): Me, JC, Jam and Jed

The Boys : Proud Finishers

Pawisang mga bata. R, K and M.

And so, we shall run together. Nyahaha.

A Bedtime Story 6

..The guards didn't appear to hear lisa shouting, she started to become more nervous and wanted to wake up, she kept telling herself to wake from the dream but she couldnt. In frustration and an attempt to get the guards notice she started to bang on a parked truck. She didnt understand how she could be aware of herself being in a dream state but unable to control or wake from it. The guards came over and asked if she was going to make a fuss like earlier in the mall. although they didnt say it, she knew they were aware of her earlier flying..

* I think this would be the penultimate one. Sigh.


Kailangan ko na namang maglinis ng aking inbox at umaapaw na ang mga mensahe, naghahanap na naman kuno ng space whatever. Dito ko muna itatapon ang mga mensahe na hindi ko kayang i-let go. ching!

*Marye!!! *hugs* congratulations talaga!kakatuwa nmn..i was really praying for u that day =) im sooooo happy for u. ~ work related response from hunnybun

*May the wind beckon to you its healing touch, brush your face tonight, and blow away that which ails you.. Goodnyt and sweet dreams, tbud. :)

*with all that ubuntu adapting.hehe goodnyt!welcome back, vampire!

By the way, I looooooove my friends! Honestly and immensely. I must have done something good to deserve them. Hmm... :)

Pero may isang end-of-friendship issue (lokohan lang namin) na umangat ngayon lang. Good Job haha. I guess matanda na ko at hindi na kasing-sensitibo (di tulad ng dati) enough para intindihin ang mga bagay-bagay. Walang kaso sakin yun pero di ko alam bakit ako naiyak. Lecheng background song lang kasi wahaha. Di bale, mahal na mahal pa rin kita. Shet. Wisdom do come as we age. and forgiveness too. Amen. ;)

A Dose of Mela

Dahil kahit hindi tayo nagkikita at hindi mo ko nababatukan ng personal sa mga pinaggagagawa ko lately (and vice versa), masaya ko at nagpapasalamat na ikaw pa rin ang voice of reason ko. Tagapagpaliwanag sa mga bagay-bagay na hindi ko maintindihan (at ayaw intindihin), matyagang nag-papaintindi sakin na wala nang fairy tales ngayon (kung meron man hindi na panghabambuhay besides, stepmothers na ang nagwawagi nowadays aysus!) at sa pagpapaalala sakin na: "actions speak louder than voice"

PANALO. Pambihira ka! Natawa ko. Okay na sana yung banat eh. :) But anyway, salamat sa pagbubukas ng isip ko.

Here goes nothing...or maybe everything.

sweet C o' mine*

Pardon me, but all these stuff are new to me. So new that I'm sure I may have thrown inappropriate/kajologan/kabobohan words for the simple reason that I don't exactly know what to say or do. My brain doesn't process these things in quite the natural way or rather the normal way. kumbaga sa microsoft e lotus pa lang ata ako huhu. But... Lemme write these things that I can never properly utter when I'm wide awake and sane.

~I have never been given something by someone, let alone a boy, who has to go through more than an arm's length of hassle just to get it. I only have vague idea, mind you, and it's not exactly an arduous task but the fact still remains the same that that someone actually took the pains to get me something that he thinks would make me happy. I'm pretty amazed, the effort alone kills me. Although it definitely wasn't my first reaction but that's another story.

What did I feel after my brain settled enough for me to think straight? Weird but I felt special at that moment and i don't mean the special retarded that I already am. Y'know what I mean. Moving on...

~For the longest time, I lived alone. I did a lot of things on my own, on my own pace and on my own time. I've lots of friends and though I'm not afraid to tell them that I fear of being alone and forgotten, I value and regard my independence a lot too. There are others out there I suppose, who find joy in their solitary minutes and they don't take it as anti-socialism or whatever. It's natural. it's legitimate. It is not weird.

Which brings me to what I wanna say.. for saying the things I also wanted to say but never having the nerve to say it out loud: "we've had our lives before any of this, so just continue what you've been doing. The world does not revolve around us.." something to that effect. I couldn't agree more. So, thanks. :)

That's it for now. I guess..


*Well he's not mine though, duh. just a parody for that song.
