Filipino driving behavior

People judge actions according to their own constructs.

Double standard of judgment.

Keeping my cool

I have been through worse and this small problem won't get me down. It's actually pretty simple, just sacrifice a little for what remains the little of the paper. I have roughly about 12 hours to labor the paper and I can do this, there's really no other way. My mind is starting to feel slowed down now but this is just not a reason to just give up. I know I can do this, I can do this.

Whenever I'm in Starbucks, all the cells in my brain start running like crazy that I can finish all the important deadlines I have, the catch is, it's very expensive to study in Starbucks plus the coffee makes me want to puke already. I've had enough coffee in a day and one more grande todau would surely make me go nuts. Add to that the fact that I always have to contend with teaching somebody in the wee hours of the morning makes me want just lie in bed and dream that this is not happening to me. I have been feeling stessed, too stressed now and I don't know how much of this I can still take. I have no idea until where would my sanity keep hanging. But there never is enough option for me. Now I am considering of working in a cruise ship, leave the country and start anew, earn money, buy a house, and then a car, start a food business, buy a house, and maybe settle down. I'm not getting any younger now, I'm already 24 this February and I just want set things right for me. But definitely, I'm ruling out another Starbucks. I'm feeling numb now; my cheeks getting paler by the second; and the eyes are almost closing now. But there are still 11 more recordings to finish, each requiring three hours so that makes it 33 hours (more than one day to finish everything) but I know GOD will be here for me. He never desserted me. Never. God will be here for me. I am firm about that. As I have said before, God has put me through tougher times and I always survive them. This one won't be an exemption. The only enemy I have now is myself. I shall conquer myself.

Bad day

"Traffic jam, when you're already late."

Couldn't put it any better than this. Alanis, I so adore you. Damn this day, I just hate this. Everything gone from wrong to catastrophic, and it all began with the text message my mom sent me.

Why can't they just let me be? The negativity really rubs in and sure affects me. I just detest this feeling but I can't help it, my mood is really in a terrible state now and it affected everything.

Ephiphany of the Lord

According to some, there were actually six kings who were supposed to visit Jesus on His birthday. However, one king got lost, went to the USA and built Burger King. The other went to China, and built Chowking, and one to the Philippines and built, guess what- Tapa King.

This was the attention step of the presiding priest today (the Indian priest) which got me smiling. It was fun, but the next parts of the sermon for today really passed through one ear to the other. It was so difficult to keep my eyes open, I tried closing and resting my eyes but I end up like a rooster with head down. 

I was at Church today and was unfortunate enough to have the Indian father to do the sermon for the mass. As usual, I didn’t understand much about what he was saying and was actually falling into sleep. Apart from incomprehensible muttering of words, the remaining were actually so ambiguous one would really have a difficult time fathoming why on Earth are we being told about things which are just so vague. For instance, the sermon today was about the visit of the three kings to Jesus in Judea. The priest kept telling about going out, searching out, finding out sort of things to find Jesus. I think, if one is not listening intently then the words would be fine, but truth of the matter is that, how can we do all these things the priest had mentioned without clear steps or giving examples at least. The last year, I have kept complaining about how vague sermons are in churches. I am getting desperate about this situation.
