Always, always, always, ask first before doing something drastic. It may be pointless on your view, but to others it is a big deal.

When something doesn't go you way, convince yourself that there is much more to life than holding grudges. When you feel angry, breathe in, breathe out. try to express it as diplomatically as possible.

This may be the worst day, but in the next five years, it wouldn't matter that much.

People who belittle you are actually just a reflection of how they see themselves. it's called projection.

On explorations...

I waited for a long time to this possible. Actually I wasnt expecting that trip down south will push through. Thanks to everyone's persistence, it finally materialized. My friends and I are finally going somewhere far.

Upon arrival to Tagbilaran airport, we took a van and started the road trip to the must-see spots. First stop: blood compact monument. It's basically just a group of statue that represents part of Philippine history upon the invasion of the Spaniards. Baclayon Church: I was able to see the site being repaired from the damage caused by the earthquake. I felt goosebumps as I was staring at the tower with it's top chopped off, with some of the huge debris scattered in the field near the church floor. I could imagine how terrifying those 33 seconds of tremors was. Next was the Python sanctuary. To be honest, I was a bit turned off with the guide because he/she was a stuck-up. Anyway, at least he knows what he's doing, so we took a picture with the huge snakes (scary by the way). Loboc river Cruise. Boyfriend was right for warning me, the food isn't that scrumptious. For 450 peso-buffet, seems like we just actually paid for the river cruise itself. At least the view of the falls and colloidal water compensated for it. And not to forget the choir. Hanging bridge: I dont know why I feel courageous to cross the narrow bridge made of bamboo. I just did. Tarsier sanctuary, one of the reasons why I want to go to Bohol. I finally saw them in real life. Their size is that of a kitten, or a mouse, with it's head slighty bigger, well because they had huge eyes too. and since they are nocturnal creatures, we kept quiet and just took pictures of them sleeping.Although there's this one we got to see jumping from one twig to another.

to be continued...

New November

Looks like Im gonna need to sit down this weekend and re-evaluate some things. I just need to assess where I want to be and what I wanted to be. 2014 is about to end, and another leaf will be turned over so I need to check where Im at. I think there are more important things to do than dealing with petty immature people.

Taking matters into own hands

Okay. I have stopped running for a while to recover from Plantar Fasciitis. With that, I had little to no exercise, more food, and more weight gain. But now, that I'm feeling better, I think I'm ready to get back on track. I have started some short routine of running a couple of weeks ago. Didn't bother with my speed like I used to (cause that's where I most likely got my injury). I just ran for a good 10 minutes for 1-3 times per week. I ditched my flats and started to wear cushioned shoes. I can barely feel the pain on my heels, except when I walked for way too long.

I have challenged myself to an 8-week routine/plan. To be honest I kinda hate calling it a plan cause I sometimes find myself feeling strangled half-way and end up not doing it. But I just want to put myself in a place where I finally don't feel sluggish and resort to binge eating and laxatives. I wanna do and keep this as normal as possible. People may have mocked me for doing this running gig yet didn't have significant changes. But soon, there will be. I am doing this for my own good. I don't wanna put my or anyone's money on lifetime medications and treatment of complications.

So I have already set the goal to reach 120 lbs by the first week of 2015. I know, it's a bit of a "suicide mission" because December is the season to eat, eat, and be merry. Oh well, challenge accepted. I will hope not to get more fat for Christmas.

Haloween-All-Saints day weekend

November 1st. I opted to stay home instead of joining my folks to drop by the cemetery. I didn't feel like going through the wave of the crowd coming towards the cemetery, considering the holidays fell exactly on the weekends. I have candles though to light up as a way of remembering my departed relatives.

And I was right. As expected, the news televised the live surge of the crowd coming in and out. There were even reports of lost kids. And some are just stubborn to still bring sharp objects. Seriously?

Anyway, I have the house to myself, and was told they'd be eating outside so ordered some pizza for myself, and wasted hours watching from travel show to science fight and fell asleep somewhere in between. I should be doing something productive but I ended up lying in bed. But it's alright, I appreciate lazy nights lately. I begin to crave for more free time, doing something else. Lately I just want to sulk and try to get over some personal issues that bother me. I am trying to get over the fact that there will always be someone who will judge me down to my core. I shouldnt bother caring.
