2012-2013

2012 has indeed been very successful for me.

It was the year I learned to love and let go. The year I gave so much in every aspect of my life. the year I learned to care less of what people say and the year I focused on what matters to me most.

It was a year of enlightenment. A year that opened my eyes to new aspirations and dreams. To new beginnings and sad endings. The year I said HELLO to a new life and goodbye to the bitter past. It was a year of transformation and growth.

I met a lot of new people. Dared to live everyday full of hope. Fell down but rose back up. Failed but didn't quit. Lost but tried again. Everything I have learned this year will contribute to what I will become next year. The lessons I have learned which will make me wiser and better next time around. It was a blessing to be able to celebrate everyday of 2012 as I continue to transition from a clumsy, reckless, immature 23-year old girl to a wiser, stronger, better 24-year old.

As 2013 approaches, I will never forget the things I have learned this year. I cannot promise myself not to commit anymore mistakes as that will be close to impossible but I definitely can make sure that I will hold on to the dreams I have realized this year and will continue to push through in the year to come. I cannot promise myself to be the best all the time as I know, I still have a lot to learn but i will be more open-minded, just as what this year has taught me. Open-mindedness will help me go far. Most importantly, I cannot promise to be at the top, but I will make sure that the journey to that path will be worth writing about to inspire people who continue to struggle and dream.

It's all good.... and getting even better. 2013, I'm so ready for you!

Why Do I Always Attract the Wrong Guys?

Attracting guys isn't always easy... well at least for me. I attract guys. Of course. But problem is I attract the wrong ones. If not a player, a liar. For some reason... I seem to not meet good guys.

All year long, I did entertain the thought of getting in a relationship. Not just a relationship.. but a good one. I met guys who are good looking, has great career but at the end of the day, they are still the wrong ones. One just broke up with his long-time girlfriend when we met and during the course of the courtship, they got back together. second one, just got out of a relationship when we met and was emotionally unavailable. when he finally realized he wanted to go for me, i wasn't interested anymore. next one, doesn't see himself married with kids. definitely a no-no regardless of the chemistry that we have. the other one was too popular with girls, i know i will have problems every now and then. other one, he was almost perfect but he just likes me as a friend. and now... this guy who said he's been single for one year --- actually wasn't. he said he just broke up with his girlfriend last week. and i do not trust that since he had lied to me in the first place.

So.... where are all the good guys? are all of them taken? gay probably? this is not something that i can figure out on my own. all this time, i only wanted a guy who will love me, be faithful to me and be that one person who is worth everything that i am.. every pain i went through in the past. but it seems like this right person is nowhere to be found. i'm sure there is one for me. but what is taking him so long? why do i have to meet all these wrong guys and result to thinking that a lot are jerks. ugh. this is tiring. i don't want to talk about it but...  it was running through my mind all day. i do not know what i am doing wrong... and if i'm not.... then why is it like this? being single is not a curse. but meeting the wrong guys every now and then is.

Begin Again


Took a deep breath in the mirror
He didn't like it when I wore high heels
But I do
Turned the lock and put my headphones on
He always said he didn't get this song
But I do, I do

Walked in expecting you'd be late
But you got here early and you stand and wave
I walk to you
You pull my chair out and help me in
And you don't know how nice that is
But I do

And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny cause he never did
I've been spending the last eight months
Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again

He said he never met one girl
Who had as many James Taylor records as you
But I do
We tell stories and you don't know why
I'm coming off a little shy
But I do

But you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny cause he never did
I've been spending the last eight months
Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again

And we walked down the block to my car and I almost brought him up
But you start to talk about the movies that your family watches
Every single Christmas and I won't talk about that
And for the first time, what's past is past

Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid
I think it's strange that you think I'm funny cause he never did
I've been spending the last eight months
Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end
But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again

But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again

Finding My Heart

Dating is such a big challenge. not because guy don't date me. But mainly because there are so many guys but it just never lasts.. either he walks away or I do.

I dated a nice Taiwanese-Canadian Marketing Director last week and well, things seemed to be fun with him. And well, I said that if this won't work out, I'm not gonna date another one again at least for this year. So anyway, let's see how this goes.

Shooting Range

I have always been fascinated with action movies. Angelina Jolie is probably one of those that I watch. For some reason, I am pretty into extreme stuff. So, yesterday, I decided to feed my curiosity and went to Jethro Shooting Range . Check out some pics below:

The gun

BULLSEYE!

Never Settle For Less

Yes, today even if it hurts, I did it. For a change ayoko na mag-pagamit. Ayoko na din mag-tanga-tangahan.
Higit sa lahat, for a change, AKO naman ang importante at hindi ibang tao.

Sino pa ang magmamahal sa akin kung hindi AKO.

And I don't care if this will end everything we had. There was nothing in the first place. God knows my heart. He will give me someone that I deserve. So why should I settle for less? I am single for a reason. That reason is because I deserve so much better than what I give myself credit for.

Hindi naman ako basta babae lang eh. I have an edge compared to other girls. And I am a good person din so I think I deserve a true, honest, committed LOVE. I don't deserve to be an ego-booster.

Confused

Is he making me an ego booster?
Am I being used again without me realizing it?
Am I waiting for nothing?

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I have so many things in my mind right now.
If only I can find the answers.

Nothing Lasts Forever - Maroon 5

It is so easy to see
Dysfunction between you and me
We must free up these tired souls
Before the sadness kills us both

I tried and tried to let you know
I love you but I'm letting go
It may not last but I don't know
Just don't know

If you don't know
Then you can't care
And you show up
But you're not there
But I'm waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you

Everyday
With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

A bed that's warm with memories
Can heal us temporarily
But misbehaving only makes
The ditch between us so damn deep

Built a wall around my heart
I’ll never let it fall apart
Strangely I wish secretly
It would fall down while I'm asleep

If you don't know
Then you can't care
And you show up
But you're not there
But I'm waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you, babe

Everyday
With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

Though we have not hit the ground
It doesn't mean we're not still falling,
Oh I want so bad to pick you up
But you're still too reluctant to accept my help
What a shame, I hope you find somewhere to place the blame
But until then the fact remains

Everyday
With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
Nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way

Everyday
With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way
