Transfiguration

I am tired all day. I want to nap & nap & nap.
No place safer than my bed with only the blankets covering my skin.

I split my heart into nine and hide the pieces in really good hiding places.
Collect them all if you really want me. It’s safer this way.
I am about to transform, shed this weight,
it’s time and it is time.

Watch me become more than what you thought I was going to be.

Wedges and Wallet

Tuesday would have been a normal, uneventful day, but it turned out to be one of those FAIL days where my brain would goof up on me.

It was already past 6 PM. I was skimming my Facebook news feed to while away the time and posting random thoughts like this:

FB status: Beer is a magical fruit
Beer IS a magical fruit

After getting ready to leave the office, and hanging around a bit and having a chat with an office mate, my brain just had an idea: hey, maybe I should get a beer tonight! With that thought in mind, I ended up at Jamba Juice (wait, what?). Yeah, Jamba Juice.

Desk Clean-up

This here is my clean up crew for when the desk is too messy.

When I decide to clean up my work area, I pull out everything, sort through all the bits and papers, and from the looks of it, I’m gonna take all of lunch time to tidy up.

Floodgates

I Am Numb.

 

As I walk along this familiar path heading home, passing by our usual bookstore, our favourite coffee shop, the restaurant where we regularly have dinner, I staggered from the sudden pain I felt.

 

I knew the floodgates would open. As I walked past each one of them, tears threatened to fall.

 

And they did fall. My heart cries. My heart cries out for you.

 

Everything turned into a blur. And for a moment, I let the feelings overwhelm me.

 

The Mundane and The Random #1

“Fun” events while I was in Bonifacio Global City tonight:

  1. I was supposed to head home early, but I waited for Kate for almost an hour, cause I thought we’d walk together
  2. Kate didn’t know I was waiting for her, and she already decided to take the bus to Market! Market! (I feel so used! Abused! loljk)
  3. I still wanted to walk even when it was raining reeeeeeeeheheeeeally hard (I cannot remember what was running through my mind, earlier. I guess I wanted to people watch)
  4. Derek strolled in the pouring rain without an umbrella, while munching an apple. (This was specially amusing to witness)

I Felt Nothing

When I saw you in the crowd, I felt nothing. Just a relief that I finally found where you were waiting for me. Even if I was already two hours late, you smiled at me. I grinned back.

I’m not a big fan of your new hairstyle. Your hair is too thick, and I liked your Asian hairstyle better. Nonetheless, you’ve always had beautiful hair so I stroked a section of it and commented that it’s getting longer. How I wish I could keep running my hand through your hair, but I didn’t.

(Taking Advantage of) The Last Sunny Days Of Summer 2011: Picnic in Diliman

Summer has only begun for our friends in the West, but here in the Philippines it has long gone. Rainy days are here, and a lot of us has sadly experienced floods from the last heavy rainfall. 🙁

Suffice to say, summer has officially ended for us here. But I am grateful to have spent the last sunny day with good friends just before it (quite literally) started continuously raining. Kat, Drew, Ryan & yours truly decided that if it didn’t rain during the weekend of June 5, we will have a picnic lunch at the sunken garden of UP Diliman.

No Oil Cooking

This was the first time I went to Maya Kitchen, under the invite of Ryan of Kain Pinoy. The demo class covered no oil cooking using INOS cookware.

I was tempted to buy a set for myself but I have to check my budget first before trying to make an impulse purchase, anyhow, with its safe and health-friendly components, INOS surgical stainless steel cookware is perfect for cooking nutritious meals for your family.
