Back to my Good Old Self

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 00:09:00 +0000

I was losing focus. I realised that. It was time to get back on my feet and focus on the more important things.

I have no time to be depressed and I have no reason to be. A lot of exciting things are coming up.

For one, I am finally graduating in May. But I have no plans to stop studying. My Law School Admission Test is on March 16 and I have to brush up on my essay writing skills. Do I want to be a lawyer? Yes. When I was young, I wanted to be a doctor to save lives. But nowadays, people need to be saved, not only from sickness and dying but from injustice and corruption.

At work, I will be going through training this coming February. Another new, exciting thing for me. I love trainings because I am able to work on my presentation skills. I will definitely need this for my LSAT oral exam.

And on April, Robbie and I will be turning 4. I am not sure though if we're going out of town since this has always been the practice. Last time we talked, he already told me that we might not go on vacation since I'll be graduating and we might just have a small party to celebrate our anniversary and my graduation.

It's been a week and it feels like I am back to the old me. My old life is back. Am I sad? No, I am not. Do I miss it? Sometimes I do. I think about it once in a while. But my life is back on track and I am happy. I learned that happiness is better if you're peaceful and you're doing the right thing. The thrill of doing something that is "not expected" can be inviting and exciting but it fails you as a human being. It is not nice to be happy at the expense of others.

I learned this and I learned it the hard way. So am I going back? I don't think so and I'll need strength not to. I thank God for guys like my husband.

Turn It Well

"Maybe we can suit up and leave the photos home
And I’ll walk you through The woods, crossing fingers..."

I slept early last night. I wanted to make it up to Robbie.  I woke up around 3:30 am, just in time when he was about to enter our room.

I've always said that Robbie is the most loving man I've ever met. He's not only that-- he's the most forgiving, kindest human being I've ever encountered. You may not believe that such person exists but he does and I am really blessed. He's not perfect, of course. He sometimes shows an unbelievable temper whenever he can't find his stuffs. He hates it when his things are missing just because I had to put them away or clean them. But aside from that, he's perfect.

I was still in bed when he came. He greeted me with a smile and laid down beside me. He started playing songs by Up Dharma Down, our favorite band. I boasted that I can sing Turn It Well without looking at the lyrics so he started playing it. I was so impressed because he started singing with me and he knows every word! We were singing together when I suddenly noticed he was looking at his phone. He was cheating!!! :) I just realised I missed doing these stuffs with him.

Marriage is something that two people have to work on. This is not something you will just throw away when you realise that things are not going too well. Marriage is staying with the person no matter what, loving him and embracing him despite the flaws and inconsistencies. Marriage is a commitment, not only to be with the person, but to make sure that you will do your best to make things work. Marriage is about forgiveness and a promise that you will never compromise what you've vowed for.

Robbie did not only make me feel that he loves me. He assured me that things will turn out well-- and i love him for that.

Three Years Going to Four

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 13:48:00 +0000

(image) It was year 2006 when I first wrote on this blog and that was because of the office hype in blogging. I've never thought that this blog will play an important role in my life.

Robbie and I have been married for roughly three years and eight months-- going to 4 this coming April 28. We've been crazy happy eversince. However, like other normal couples, we've also experienced challenges and just recently i thought we'll gonna lose everything and it was all my fault.

I decided to read this blog and I realised that sometimes, you need to be reminded of what you have, before its too late.

This blog may be full of my ranting but this blog is about our love story. It reminded me of a lot of things.

Robbie and i may not be perfect. But us, being together, makes everything perfect.

After 4 looong years...

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 04:26:00 +0000

After 4 long years, I suddenly had the urge to start blogging again.

My life has been really crazy for the past two months and I feel like I am losing my focus.

Robbie and I have been married for almost 4 years now and life was not always easy. Our relationship have been tested by time and I thought we'll lose everything recently.

After 4 loong years, expect this blog to be alive again.

Most Painful...

Sat, 27 Jun 2009 02:54:00 +0000

It has been two years since my Dad wrote me the last time. Until now, I'm still puzzled on how he found out my blog. His reply to an entry about my grandfather is absurd and unbelievable, really caused me pain big time -- as a matter of fact, everytime that I see that email, it still cause me the same pain, sometimes even worst. A while ago, I was browsing my outlook and saw that last email. I read through it and tried to analyse and maybe see where he was coming from. With the way he answered my post, there was so much pain, so much regret, self centeredness, so much arrogance. I don't really understand why he was so mad at me, well in fact I am the one who has all the reasons to be mad. It pains me because the truth is, I love him no matter what he did to my mom and to my sister. I love him despite the fact that he was the reason why I never experienced having a dad- that I will never be complete because he was never in my life. Oh yeah he was, for less than two months in my entire 27 years of existence. He was and he would always be the missing link.

His last line from this email hurts me. It's as if he is wishing that I fail. I never imagined that a father could hurt his daughter this much.

Now that I am married, we will do everything to keep our family together. I wouldn't want my future children feel the same pain. I will make sure that our history will be different. My mom would always say I am still lucky because Jesus became my father since my real dad was away. This is true. God has blessed me with so much, he even gave me a wonderful and caring husband. My new life is just starting and I have forever to compensate all the pain that my dad brought me. I can and I will be happy. My mom is still healthy, living with me, my sister, my hubby and our wonderful dog, beech and I have wonderful, real friends. What more can I ask for?

The Blessings of Being Married

Mon, 25 May 2009 04:12:00 +0000

It's been a long time since I logged in and posted an entry to my blog. I've been busy :D. It has been a month since Robbie and I got married and everything has been totally, happily crazy. Yes, guys, we got married already. :D I am now officially MRS. PATRICIA FRANCISCO CAPULE! :)April 28 was just a normal day for most of you guys, except for me and Robbie (and for Judy Anne Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, too!)! haha! yes guys, we got married on the same day Judy Anne, the queen of Philipine soap operas (and is a very good actress, by the way) and Ryan Agoncillo, the La Sallista, got married. Juday married a La Sallista, I married a UPian. Where's the connection? there's no connection... haha! just wanted to mention that here since I like Judy Anne.Anyways, Robbie and I had a civil wedding at Branch 38 of MTC in Quezon City. Every detail of my wedding was simple-- from the ceremonies, down to the reception and to the people who were there with us to celebrate. Like what Ryan Agoncillo said (his reply when he was asked if not being with people they don't want to be there made their day extra special), we were with the special people that we want to be with on this special event and they made our day extra special. Our guests were less than 30, we only have 2 sets of principal sponsors, plus 4 of Robbie's Friends, 7 of my friends and the rest are family and relatives. Our rings were bought from a local store. Simple but meaningful-- a silver ring with one stone in the middle to signify that we are each other's one and only with our names engraved and the date of our wedding (04.28.2009). I bought a blouse and a new slacks from Moda Plus and Tubby and Robbie bought a new polo from Attitudes (I think our clothes were the most expensive). We had our "pre-nup" glam pic take at Great Image, which by the way is super beautiful. Our reception was held at Kowloon House in West Ave. Why a simple wedding and why only 30 people? When I was a kid, I've always dreamt of having a fairy tale-big wedding. I wanted to wear a very nice wedding gown with a long trail. I want to have many flowers and many guests. But as I grew old, my preferences changed. I guess it has something to do with my past relationships. If there is one thing that my past relationships have taught me, I have realised that the details of the wedding is not important-- the important thing about getting married is that YOU ARE MARRYING THE RIGHT PERSON, THE PERSON THAT YOU REALLY, HONESTLY LOVE AND SOMEONE WHO FEELS THE SAME WAY ABOUT YOU... Somebody who respects you in every situation, even during arguments and fights. Somebody who wants to kiss and hug even though you just woke up. The person who still loves you even if you have the loudest snore. That only person who does chooses not to cheat on you because cheating means losing you-- someone who has the conscience not to hurt you. I found this person-- my beautifully imperfect betterhalf. I wanted to be with people who are my genuine friends. I've been to a lot of weddings and I often hear people saying bad things about the ceremony, the reception, worst, the couple-- I dont want these kind of people attending my wedding. I want special people to be there, people who really matter to us and to whom we really matter. I've been single for the past 27 years of my life and Robbie gave me the grandest wedding ever. He made everyone feel his love for me. After my wedding, I only heard one thing from our guests... that Robbie loves me so much and they felt it. He made a lot of people cry that day, not only me. The love that he has for me was undescribable. My mom thought I'll never settle down. But I guess, you can never tell. Like what the commercial said... "SINGLE PATRICIA, SIGNING OUT..."[...]

Everyday is a Blessing

Thu, 02 Apr 2009 22:23:00 +0000

To God Be the Glory!

God has been so kind to me, my family and my friends. Only God knows the difficulties we went through this week and God has taken away all the worries and the problems. For all of the people doubting God, don't allow negativity and problems take away the Faith. It's the only thing that God requires us to have.

Thank you God! Thank you for all the blessings, the love and all the kindness! God is great! :D

A Different Christmas

Sat, 27 Dec 2008 02:47:00 +0000

My Christmases are usually spent with my family-- with my mom's immediate family particularly. I only have wonderful memories... unwrapping gifts, eating wonderful food that my Mamang and Mommie cooked and of course, playing with my cousins. That was how I spent my childhood Christmases.Till it was my turn to wrap and give gifts to the younger ones, to cook the food for Christmas Eve, to give a little something to Mamang, to my wonderful aunts and cousins. All of my Christmases were spent with so much joy. Every year, I look forward to the funny gifts that my sister would give my Tita Jing and my cousin Mark. Unwrapping those gifts were the highlight of the Noche Buena.This year it was different... really different. Until now as I write this entry, I still cannot believe my family went through this ordeal. We almost lost Bamba.Bham is the youngest cousin of our "batch". I was born on 1981. Abbey, my sister was born on 1982. Mark or Mackey as we fondly call him, and the only guy cousin, was born on 1986 and Bham, our baby cousin was born on 1987. We were "batch mates". Born in the same decade, we grew up together. Yes, we may have other cousins, but the four of us are inseparable. We were like siblings born from different mothers. We shared a lot of happy memories, childish fights but we were always there for each other. My sister and Mackey were partners in crime while Bham and I were always the victims of their pranks. Although we didn't live in the same house, we were together everyday.Christmas was and still is, the most exciting day of the year not only for the four of us, but also for the entire family. Last December 24, I attended the Christmas Eve Mass with Mark, Majen and Selene. As usual, the mass ended at 11 pm and we all went home to Mamang's house. Noche Buena this year was one of the best. For one, we were complete. We didn't have that much food but it was enough for everyone. Until it was time to unwrapped the gifts. My sister's gifts were crazy... she gave my tita jing jumping "testicles" and mark jumping "boobies". We were all laughing because of the gifts. We were so happy that night. We went home at around 2 am to sleep and rest since Christmas Day is a day of videoke.Until Christmas morning came. I was wrapping Robbie's gift since I bought his last. My tita Susan was rushing to our house to tell us that my cousin Bamba is in pain because of her menstruation. She was bleeding. I was so calm and told her that it is usual for someone who didn't have her period for a long time to feel pain when her menstruation finally comes. I even gave her the hot bag so that my cousin could apply hot compress on her abdomen. Then my best friend Louella came to visit with my Godson Johann. My tita Susan came back, now more tensed and scared, she shouted, "Ten, may bata sa toilet!" I was shocked and at the same time cannot believe what I just heard. I dragged my best friend to come with me and check out what's happening. When I arrived, I immediately went to the bathroom to check on Bamba. She was still partially sitting on the toilet. I saw something... I looked again, I can't believe I'm seeing a baby's arm! That was the only time that I realized that Bam was actually pregnant and not just fat. I was shocked... and traumatized. I wanted to cry, wanted to run away. I can't believe and I've never imagined I'll see these things. I told Louella to get the baby while I get help. Everyone was crying, even my Tito Ruben. They were all shocked. I told myself that I have to be calm... but I was scared.I went back home and told my mom about it. My mom dressed up immediately. I went to the neighbor to ask for help. Ate Teng and Kuya Chito were there. They went to their house to get their car. We took Bamba to UERM on Kuya Chito's car. While we were on our way, Bam was telling us that she's[...]

Ely Buendia Had Another Attack, Concert Cut Short

Sun, 31 Aug 2008 04:09:00 +0000

Robbie attended the Reunion Concert of the famous Eraserheads with his friends. At around 1 am, he texted me that the concert was cut short because Ely had another attack. He was rushed to Makati Medical Centre.

According to the news, after the first set, Ely had another attack due to physical and emotional stress. He's now confined at the Philippine Heart Centre.

Robbie and his friends went to a bar in Makati since it was too early to go home and they found Raymond Marasigan and other bands jamming in that bar. (forgot to ask the name of the bar).

The New Twilighter

Sun, 31 Aug 2008 03:49:00 +0000

Its been a while since I posted on my blog. I've been very, very busy with work and school and didn't have time to even browse my own site. How's everyone? :)

It's a Sunday and I'm logged in to the net. I was monitoring my bids on E-Bay. Thanks to my friend and Team Leader Claire Arrabe for influencing me on reading the "Twilight" Saga. I've been dying to buy the 4 books. Unfornately, no bookstores in Manila is selling the paperback version. Can't afford to buy the hardbound version so I opted to find copies in E-Bay. Luckily, I found and won the 4 books :) I am soooo happy! I got "Twilight" and "Eclipse" and I am yet to receive the 2 other books. Already started to read the first one...

Anyway, I went out with my friends yesterday. Its been a long time since I went on a night out to drink. Robbie went to the Eraserheads Reunion Concert. We have tickets for Metro Bar however, the show last night was a ticket selling show so we can't use our free tickets. Not wanting to spoil our night, we went Libis from West Ave to drink and dine in Somethin Fishy.

At around 1 am, Robbie texted me and told me that the Eraserheads Concert was cut short because Ely Buendia had another heart attack. I hope he's ok...

Something that I learned...

Mon, 21 Jul 2008 10:12:00 +0000

Hell will break loose but REAL FRIENDS will always be there...

First Day at work... a lot of great things happened. Underwent a very tough knee operation and had the time to rest and learn things. After a long vacation, my first day at work is truly amazing. I was given a chance by somebody extraordinary to prove that I can do great things not only for myself but for everyone as well. To you who fought and believed in me, Thank You. You deserve where you are right now and may God give you the graces that you ask for.

What I wrote above is something that I realised during these times. You know who you guys are. Thank you...

I'm Back...

Mon, 07 Jul 2008 11:03:00 +0000

Finally, after more than 2 weeks of not being able to walk, I was able to convince Robbie to take me out so that I could check my blog. How's everyone? I hope all of you are in good health.

Yep, yep, yep! I am grateful to God because my knee operation was successful! Although I can still barely walk, I went to the farthest place I could go to-- the Internet cafe... I still have my crutches though and Robbie had to bring a make-shift foot stool.

The operation was really one of the most difficult things I had to undergo. I'll probably write about it when I get back to the office.

I would also want to give my love and thanks to LJ for taking the time to fetch me at my house and to accompany me to the hospital. Thanks Girl! I owe you one.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you, my friends, who prayed for the success of my operation. Thank you Boss Mitch for giving me the prayer to St. Josemari Escriva. It really is a powerful prayer! For the people who visited me in the hospital: My dearest lolo, my supervisor Claire and teammates Kimmy and Mommie Irene; my co-officers at CHEM (Kuya Emil, Mark, John, Suzette, Princess, Lesel, Heidee); my bestfriends from school, Ate Cath, Ate Robby and Ate Carlyne. For the others who were not able to visit but continuously prayed for me, thank you, thank you, thank you!

To my family, my mamang baby, my Mom, my sister and my Robbie, I love you and thank you for standing by me and for being patient with me despite my tantrums when I'm in pain. You are truly God's biggest blessing!

And to my doctors, Dr. Beng Javier and Dr. Thet Torres thank you, thank you, thank you! Dr. Javier is the best ortho surgeon. If you need to see an ortho, he's one of the best.

Anyway, I'll be back, hopefully, in the office by the 14th of July. See ya'll when I get back ;-)

Test of Faith

Mon, 23 Jun 2008 02:51:00 +0000

Tomorrow I will be confined at the Makati Medical Centre for my knee operation. I've underwent a couple of operations and this is the first time that I was given a chance to prepare for it. Honestly, it feels weird-- really. Maybe because I am not used to it. During my last operation, I went to the OBGYNE at 3 pm, at 5pm I was already confined for surgery.
I always tell my friends or whoever who asked me this week that I'm nervous and scared. But now I wonder, was I saying that because I am really scared or I was just trying to convince myself that I am since I am so used to operations? Well, the scariest thing for me about operations is the general anasthesia. I don't really like it. For me, its the most painful part. But I am not really scared about the rest of the procedure. I know God will be with me through this journey like He has always been.
I was talking to our Operations Supervisor Mitch and I was telling him about my experience the last time I was confined at St. Lukes. I was put in the Critical Care Unit of the Emergency Room and was connected to all these machines-- heart monitor, pulse monitor, etc. I am not able to stand up so the radiologist had to use the portable x-ray. After he took my x-ray, he went back to me and asked me in a very weird way and with a very scared face if i had an operation. I asked him why. He told me that I have metals on my chest. I laughed and almost pretended that I haven't had an operation before to scare the poor guy. Robbie just pinched my had to remind me not to scare him off.
Anyway, Mitch shared to me a prayer. He told me that it is a very powerful prayer that could really help me with this ordeal. I would like to ask for your prayers too... Please pray for the success of my operation, for my safety as I go through it. Please pray for the doctors who would be doing the operation and also for my family, my mom and my friends who will be with me. Thank you guys and I hope I could blog right away after I get out of the hospital. :D
God's message for me today: Don't be discouraged! God will be with you through this week. (From my daily subscription from Bo Sanchez )

Things to come...

Sat, 21 Jun 2008 09:11:00 +0000

This has been a hectic week for me. Aside from the fact the Robbie already left for Cabanatuan, I received a bad news from my Ortho Surgeon last Monday. I have to undergo a knee surgery soon. I was given 6 weeks to schedule my operation. According to him, the medial patellar retinaculum needs to be reconstructed and I have PCL. So I went back to the doctor last Thursday and told him I'll have it next week. I am scheduled on Wednesday 7:00am so guys, please pray for me.

So I'll be resting for the next 3 weeks and might not have access to the internet. I'm sure I'm gonna miss writing and blogging. After my operation, there are a lot of exciting things to look forward to... something great about work, I will be busy with school and our org and I will have new projects to start. This is a welcomed vacation for me. God probably wants me to rest since I've been very, very busy since January. Although I love what I am doing, we all need some time off.

I love you...

Wed, 18 Jun 2008 00:24:00 +0000

This letter was written during a point when our relationship was being tested by time. I remembered telling Robbie that I was beginning to like someone else (this happened almost two and half years ago when were just starting and everything was just so unsure). I was waiting for him to get mad and walk away but he looked at me instead, held my hand and told me he's gonna fight for me. We just celebrated our 3rd year last May and he already won the fight. This letter was written in a plain piece of paper but this was one of the most beautiful letters I've ever read:

02082007 11:58
Dear Mahal,
I wouldn't start by greeing you, asking about how your day went, nor telling you how did I spent mine. As always, whenever I'm writing something, it is the opening that's always takes me too much time to write.

I just wrote to tell you a few things that always flee from my chain of thoughts whenver we are together. It is not because it's not important but because I'm overwhelmed by the joy of just being there with you.

I love you. and please don't ask me how much for love can never ever be quantified. It just varies in quality, yet it is still love.

I love you. and don't ask me why. For there is never really a reason for love to exist. Love don't really need reason - it is illogical ever since time immemorial. and love surpass any reason that there is.

I know that letters can't really contain and express what I feel. Ever more, say properly the things that I feel right now. I love you, and that is just enough words to say the other million ways of telling you how important you are to me.

Change is inevitable. Yet we only change for the betterment of ourselves. Love is accepting a person wholly for what they are, and I love you for just what you are. (Dapat yata nauna ung last sentence ko, hihihi, tamad na ako magre-write ) :)

Love you lots,

My Strength Gone

Tue, 17 Jun 2008 22:55:00 +0000


Robbie is leaving for Cabanatuan today... I didn't want him to leave but if he doesn't, how could we save up money for our wedding? He accepted the teaching job in NEUST and this is actually his chance to build experience so that later on he could transfer here in Manila. When he asked for my opinion yesterday, I didn't want to tell him that I don't want him to go because I am not that selfish to stop him from having a job or a career. But I am so used to being with him everyday and we usually spend the rest of the day together after my work. He told me he feels empty when he's far away. I feel empty when he's far away. But sacrifices has to be made.

Last night when he was removing my bandage, I started crying. I realised that I am gonna miss so much about him - his I love you's, his hand, his caring face. Aside from my mom, he gives me the strength to fight. He makes me strong. He was with me when my ortho surgeon told me I'll have to undergo the operation. I cried after we left the doctor. He held my hand and told me I'm gonna be ok and that he's gonna be there. He was with me through the toughest time of my life and I just don't see myself without him. I know this is a selfish post but what the heck? I love him so much and and its never gonna be the same without him. I know he promised to come home every two weeks but that is still different from seeing him and being with him everyday.

I trust him and I know he'll be here during my operation. I am really sad today. I hope I'll get over this soon...

Ces Drilon and Companions Freed

Tue, 17 Jun 2008 22:27:00 +0000

Broadcast Journalist Ces Drilon and 2 of her companions, including a professor of the Mindanao State University were released last night at around 11 pm. According to the reports, there were no ransoms paid for the release and it was only the persistent negotiation that led to their freedom. They were picked up by Indanan Mayor Injani and other Sulu Officials.

Ces Drilon's Abductors Set 12Noon Deadline

Mon, 16 Jun 2008 22:51:00 +0000

(image) The abductors of broadcaster Ces Drilon has demanded for a P15Million ransom money to be given not later than 12Noon today. According to the only negotiator Indanan Mayor Alvarez Injani, Ces promised her kidnappers that the P15Million ransom will be given to them so the kidnappers are expecting the money.

Actually, when I was listening to the news last night, I found some loopholes on the interview. It gave me this impression that Mayor Injani is in favor of the ransom. Well, it was just how I felt because he said things yesterday that is very unlikely. Like, according to him, the only way to get Ces and his cameraman back is if the ransom would be paid. From what I know, as a negotiator, you actually try your best to convince the kidnappers that you will be paying a small amount for the ransom or not pay at all. Plus, he was so fuming mad at ABS-CBN because it seems like they already lost their interest on the case, which is so impossible since Ces is one of ABS-CBN's top broadcaster. He also said that he was honored that he is the only negotiator that the kidnappers would like to talk to. I don't know but there was something weird about that interview.

Well anyway, ABS-CBN is firm with their "No Ransom" policy. The deadline is today at 12Noon. I really pray that whatever their decision, whether they pay the ransom or not, I hope Ces and the other crew will be safe.

What's New in the Metro

Sun, 15 Jun 2008 23:50:00 +0000

I haven't been strolling in the streets of Manila for almost 3 months now due to my knee injury and haven't been window shopping. Yesterday was the first day of school and I've heard about so many new things available in Manila today and new establishments being opened. Here are some of the new stuffs or places that we could find in Metro Manila:

Gwapotel by MMDA

Strategically located at the Port Area in Manila, MMDA Chairman Bayani Fernando has thought of building a motel that is patterned to Japan's capsular beds. For just P20.00, you will be able to sleep in an airconditioned bed overnight and you just have to add P5.00 if you wish to take a shower. MMDA Chairman Bayani Fernando believed that this would help our countrymen who are not able to afford renting their own place within the city. However, this is not for people who are claustrophobic. They even compared the gwapotel beds to a "refrigerated coffin". But who cares, for someone who does not have any money to afford a decent bed to sleep on everynight, this is definitely the best option.

This isn't an ordinary bunch of roses! This is edible. These are rose shape pastillas. Pastillas is a famous delicacy in the philippines. These are made from milk and could be sugar free. The price ranges from P20.00 up. According to my classmates, you could purchase them in Dangwa but I searched the web and found out that Sweet Blooms is most famous in producing these edible flowers.


Ferrari Laptop. I just saw this in the news yesterday and this is really awesome! For such a small casing, this laptop is really fast. With a 2,000MB for RAM, Processor speed of 2,000 Mhz and a hard drive of 160 Gb, what more could you ask for?

The "Not-So-Exciting" Saturday

(Written in a piece of scratch paper, June 14, 2008 at 5:00pm, PUP Open U Bldg. Rm4)

I can't believe this! Today is one of those days when you really, really, really feel bored and sleepy. I arrived in school 2 hours earlier before my class. I spent my morning at the office since I was scheduled to render OT and went to Makati Medical Centre to get the results of my MRI. I had to wait for 30minutes for my Math Professor only to be disappointed with the class. He looked like my Robbie, thin and smart looking, only that he's wearing eyeglasses.

The subject was "Mathematics for Business". I took this subject when I was a highschool freshman so I have a pretty good idea what this subject is all about. The moment he started the class, I really felt there was something wrong with my day. He started the lecture with the BASIC MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS! Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division! This is not worst. What made it really, really wrong is that he started with the computation of SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS! My friends Chemer and the other guys were teasing me because they know how I was feeling that time. It was really a mistake to start the class with that kinda topic. I took that when I was in gradeschool! This is totally absurd!

As I write this, he is now discussing the Visibility Rules, which up to know I really know by heart. Oh darn! I hope this gets better next week or else I might just lose my senses. This is one of the longest days of my life!

HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IF I'M BORED WHEN I'M IN A CLASS? I start talking to strangers outside the room, especially when I'm sitting beside the door. haha!

My Newest Hobby

Sun, 15 Jun 2008 03:04:00 +0000

2 years ago, my friend Rich told me about this new way of making your presence in the world wide web more exciting. You do not only make friends from different parts of the world but you will also earn by writing posts about the things that you love. She told me that I just have to sign up for payperpost and to make sure that my blog fits their requirements. Thinking that I won't qualify, I didn't even try to look at the website. But I noticed that a lot of my friends become hooked to this kind of business. So I decided to revive my blog and to write about things that I love and to try to qualify for payperpost. Guess what?! I have been approved!

Blog marketing is becoming one of the "in' businesses today. With everyone having access online and doing business online, making your presence felt on the internet is really important. In the next 1- to 20 yearts, this is going to be one of the successful businesses online.

What I love about payperpost is that you can write about your assignments that way you want it to. They do not try to change your style of writing but rather give you new ideas to write about. You are allowed to write about your opinion about different things found on the web, help other people decide which product to choose from and even promote websites or products that you believe in.

There's definitely no other way to earn money while doing the best thing that you love-- writing. With a little effort from you, you can earn through payperpost right away. I am sure that with this kind of exposure, I will be able to meet a lot of friends and help a lot of other people as well. My earnings? They will definitely go to my savings and probably help me with our family's finances.

This is really one of the easiest and the best way to earn and practice your craft. So if you have a blog and you love writing and surfing the net or if you want to help other people, visit them and sign up today!
