The past few weeks have been difficult for me when it comes to emotional matters. I blame my sensitive nature for that. I have been torn whether I should continue feeling this way or letting go and moving on. Lord knows how hard I tried to convince myself, and even some of my closest friends, to finally make a decision. After weighing the pros and cons, would I be totally honest to myself and to whoever is involved and risk (bad) judgment and misunderstanding?

I don’t want to make a big deal out of it but I can’t deny the fact that the “issue” at hand (or whatever it is that I am trying not to feel) has been on the back of my mind for some time now. The sad thing is it’s been creeping in and out of my subconscious like a nightmare or a fairy tale waiting to happen.

Maybe the changes that will occur in a few days are just some of the signs being thrown my way. Nothing’s in it for me. I have to look in another direction to fill that void. I don’t want to misinterpret actions and assume conclusions. That’s stupid. But then sometimes, when the heart gains control, the brain seems to cease functioning.

Maybe after a few years, I will read this and laugh at myself for feeling this way. Time has that quality of diminishing the so-called importance of some events in life. It really is tough if one’s mind says one thing and the heart says another. If I choose either decision, will I be able to live and have no regrets?

What Your Feet Say About You:

You are not very expressive. You tend to keep your emotions to yourself.

You are a somewhat passionate person. A few things get you very fired up, but you're usually pretty laid back.

You are not a very assertive person. If something doesn't come easily to you, it's not worth having.

You take a while to fall in love, but once you do, you stay pretty attached to your partner.

You are not afraid of anything. You are brave and courageous, even when most people would be terrified.

You are intellectual and philosophical. You are more concerned with thoughts than action.

You are an amazingly hard worker. You aren't spoiled and you don't mind getting your hands dirty.

You are easily influenced by other people. You're quite impressionable, so you should only be around people who are a good influence.

Summer Lovin'

Finally! The vacation we have all been waiting for happened last April 19-20, 2008. Some friends from work and I went to Coralview Resort in Morong, Bataan. It was my first time there and I have to say, despite the glitches, the trip still created warm memories. I have no camera so I'm grabbing some pics from Day's Multiply album and Maroi's Multiply album.

I created my own one in Multiply so I can share the pictures with my family and other friends. Here are some samples:

Random Facts

It's been a while since I blogged. I usually don't go online when I am home and I just enjoyed a 3-day off from work. This weekend, some of officemates/friends and I are going to Morong, Bataan for my most-awaited out-of-town gimmick this summer. I may not be able to go online for a few more days but I just can't wait to see new places and bathe in the ocean!

Before the short hiatus, let me just fill this up.

Tagged by Chiqui-girl. ;)

Share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. Then at the end you tag 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.

– Each blogger must post these rules first.
– Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
– Bloggers who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
– At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
– Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I started collecting books when I was in high school. Most of these were Sweet Valley, Sweet Dreams, Love Stories and Christopher Pike. I filled up my 5-level book case in a span of 3 years when I started working and buying books using my own money.

2. My sister and I have a complete W.I.T.C.H. mag collection starting from issue number 1. A friend used to offer me money to buy the entire collection 3 years ago but I refused. ;)

3. I had a fascination of the English royal family, not just because I fancy Prince William. Haha! Princess Diana died when I was in first year college and I used to collect magazines and read articles about the British monarchy. I wrote a term paper about the royal family for my COMM II subject and got the highest grade for that. ;)

4. If I can choose a pet or an animal companion, I would choose a dolphin (water) or a panda (land). I want to go to China and visit the pandas (especially the babies!) one of these days.

5. I kept a written diary since I was in grade 4. I stopped when I was in high school and started blogging again when I was in college. I still have my diaries from grades 4 to 1st year college and when I read it, I laugh at my shallow grievances, crushes and school woes. I can also see the changes in my handwriting as I grew older or depending on the mood I was in when I wrote a certain entry. It's pretty interesting.

6. I am 100% Ilongga. We speak the dialect at home but I haven't gone back to Bacolod City (my hometown) for more than 12 years now.

7. I am a geek and a lot of people know that, but then I wouldn't be a "Lord of the Rings" fanatic without the convincing powers of my friend, Laurice, who dragged me to watch the movie. I read "The Hobbit" 2 years before the LOTR trilogy movie was shown and I didn't finish it because I got bored. Hahaha! After the movie, I read the LOTR trilogy books. Then, I read "The Hobbit" again and finished it in about 2 days. Now, I can't wait for "The Hobbit" movie to be shown. ;)

8. I had my first kiss when I was 23 years old. I was wary about getting into relationships because most of the men who broke my heart turned out to be gay. I still am careful about that even until now. =)

I tag HMC, Day, JZ, Mae, Maroi, Laurice, Ian and Karenine! =)

Disturbingly Profound

I can be profoundly disturbing sometimes too. Hehe! It has been a while since I answered a Blogthings quiz. I missed it so, here's a new one:

You Are Disturbingly Profound

You're contemplative, thoughtful, and very intense.

Taking time to figure out the meaning of life is a priority for you.

Because you're so introspective, you often react in ways that surprise people.

No one can really understand how you are on the inside... and that disturbs them.

I guess I have to agree with the results.

Anyway, anyone out there who wants to recommend a nice and not-so-expensive resort in Laiya, Batangas, with available rooms for about 18 people on April 18-19? I can't wait to go out of town and have fun this summer! =)
