First day at school - My masteral degree

Hello, there! You might be wondering where am I right now, well...after I had my last day at work, I've been enjoying every minute of being jobless again...Actually, today's my first day at school...for those of you who didn't know it yet...I am now taking up my master in Psychology. Anyways, as what I’ve told you, its my first day at school. Unfortunately, their had been some faculty meeting going on right now, so I spent some hours in an internet cafe nearby...Sucks! Why does it have to be on my first day of school! It was not really a good day for me since yesterday...There are some things going on in my mind right now and all this situation are not helping...some people are not helping as well...I read this story a while ago...from one of my girlfriends...Hope someone out there might realize a thing...Read On...

There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care.

Jobless me

I wasn't able to give you anything about my-so-called life these past few days...Im just not in the mood to do anything and I've been busy with no work at all...what I meant with that is...Doing nothing keeps me busy...or doing nothing at all makes you want to do something to keep you busy...whatever! Last Saturday, the 28th of May was nothing significant for me...I'm just still counting the days...till my last day of work...Whhhaatt? Are you surprised? For those people I've always been with for every moment of my life...this revelation was not something new to them...I was like this for as long as I can remember...One day, I’m working, Jobless the next. You'll be more surprise if I'll be able avail the leave entitlement...its not like that I am not a good employee...I am a good one! not that I had problems with health or any thing...I guess...I’m just not fitted for it...I mean I love what I'm doing and I'm paid for being good at it! But sometimes things just happen and circumstances are just unavoidable...That's one good thing about being close to'll know what I’m telling you about...for those who do not know me at all...I read this quote just this morning..."about all you can do in life is being who you are...some people will love you for you...most will love you for what you can do for them and some won't like you at all."

And about Sunday, 29 May, Rowers Club Philippines participated in the First Leg Chinese Regatta...Correct me if I'm wrong...with so many the hell will i know! Anyways, we’ve given our best shot! But not good enough...We still have to improve and go beyond our limits...But all in all, it was fun!

The Travel Jinx

You won't believe what I've gone through the whole day! I woke up this morning...feeling that this will be just another normal day for me...that was before I slipped after going to the bathroom...and hit my right arm on the chair...Ouch! And then my boyfriend was inviting me to spend the whole day with him...which was what I really wanted to do...Unfortunately, I have set some appointments in the office that I couldn't cancel. How sad! Ok, so before I left the house for office, the rain just started to pour big time, without much choice, I came running through it! Before I could reach the long end of our street, my shoes were already soaked from the rain. And the passenger jeep I chose was so damn bull! Stopping at every corner to get passengers even if there is no more vacant seat! Alright, a few long minutes of traveling, here comes the traffic at Guadalupe! Darn! This is getting into my nerves!

After that, it all came smoothly! I had my sit inside MRT and I was so at peace...and then suddenly...I came into my senses...already far from Cubao Station (place where I suppose to be!) Now I have to wait until GMA-Kamuning station to go back to Cubao! When I was crossing the overpass...I almost slide going down the stairs! This is too much to handle...This is becoming so frustrating...but you know, I’m not the type of person who gives up easily so...I continued this challenge I was up against...I was already perspiring from all the hassles I've gone through and all I want was a nice ride in an FX taxi...So there you are...The driver of the vehicle was like my knight in shining armor! Whew! At last? Guess not! I thought that was the end of it all until we were stopped by a policeman for beating the red light! What a loser! Now all I want was to go straight home...I was already fixing my things to give-up...when suddenly, its done...We were allowed to go...Hmm... and of course we know what transpired between the driver and the police officer...And then, yes! I finally made it! I already swipe my ID...I’m late of course...but it was a fulfilling tardiness! Warning you all! Don’t get near me today...just today! Tomorrow will be a different day...I hope!
