altruism

I can’t believe I’m quoting Russell Brand here. I’m not exactly a fan but his words in the Elle Magazine interview are quite wise, to quote: …You eventually know your place – if not in the universe, on the planet – is kind of irrelevant. So you are left with the choices. It’s your smallest … Continue reading

toddler’s sleeping problem solved

I’ve been having a good night’s sleep since I got home from the hospital after my surgery. I can’t say the same thing about hubby since he is temporarily fully in charge of our toddler while I am recuperating. Our dilemma over our son’s sleeping problem stretched for almost two months. Thankfully, our toddler has … Continue reading

home decor ideas for the future

As I’ve said, this blog will serve as a repository of great ideas, wonderful discoveries, bits of wisdom and what-not that I stumble upon in my everyday life. One of our goals is to have (or rather, mortgage) our small dream house someday (hopefully, within three to five years) so i’m now collecting great home … Continue reading

a powerful prayer

I’m not a devout catholic and therefore, I am not a prayerful person (in its strict form). I do pray, but of the free-form kind, mostly in a conversational form with God. But there is one prayer a friend of mine taught me (about 4 years ago) that I would like to recall to mind. … Continue reading

countdown 1: i’m 29 until further notice!

Finally got the surgical pathology results on my dermoid cyst today. I’ve waited with bated breath for this and at last, the doctor says its BENIGN. I got my birthday wish a day before my birthday. Sweet! Two specimens were taken from my ovary. The smaller tissue (4.5 x 2 x 0.8 cm) appears to … Continue reading

countdown 2: what’s in a name?

No post for day three because i’m not feeling well. I’m down with colds and sore throat, which I hate much more than my surgical wounds. Let it remain a gap in my countdown to remind me that 30 days before my birthday, I had one really bad day. I must admit, when I started … Continue reading

countdown 4: same old me

I’m going over my previous blogs and notes and is quite amused with myself. Here are two of my previous posts: August 8, 2010, 11:21 am 2 years ago I thought I was having a quarter life crisis. I think I still am. I think I always will be. The truth is, I’m crazy and … Continue reading

countdown 5: circle of friends through the years

My most enduring relationship (aside from my family) is my friendship with my high school barkada. Even though I rarely keep in touch with them (blame it to my anti-social tendencies), they are omnipresent in my life especially during the moments that matter. Oh, we used to have a lot of conflicts and a good … Continue reading
