Done, done, and done.

I am a full-time mom.

I am a full-time, home-based employee.

I am a full-time girlfriend.

I am a full-time friend.

I am a full-time daughter.

I am a full-time sister.

And I am planning to put up a business soon *cross fingers*.

On top of all that, I am planning for a (relatively) bright future that includes Brianna, myself, and two more people.

Although it's important to do what I can do now for that future I desire and keep myself (and everyone else) aligned to that final vision, most of the time, all I want is just to take a break from all of my responsibilities and obligations but we all know how impossible that is.

For me, taking that kind of break means dying for a while and I can't afford to die even for just a second. There's a lot that needs to be done and a lot to be taken care of. I know that I should be delegating jobs to the people in my life but since I want everything done right the very first time, I shoulder a lot of the responsibilities. This also limits the frustrations on my part.

Most of the time, though, I feel like I am going to lose my mind because of all the things that are in my head. Maybe the reason is I don't know how to effectively organize my thoughts and do things all at the same time. So if God and the Universe are listening to me right now, I hope to unlock the skill of being able to multitask.

I cannot multitask to save my life. I can't even fall asleep and listen to music at the same time. That's how bad I am at multitasking. Which can get really, really bad during PMS season 'cause I can't focus on anything but having PMS. Having all those responsibilities I've mentioned earlier call for the multitasking skill not to gain some sort of recognition from other people but just so I can stay sane at the end of the day because it can get pretty cray-zey.

Right now, though, I still can't master this skill so the next best thing for me? Taking a break. Just sitting on one corner, reading a book or watching Friends (for the 1329785678124659th time). Having a break doesn't only give my mind some rest; it also reminds me of my goals and how I should act in accordance to those goals so when I get back into action, I know exactly what to do.

Now, how can I start mastering the art of multitasking?

I'm watching too much Friends.


How do I achieve this hair (minus the hair color, of course, because I definitely can't pull off blonde hair)?! Someone tell me please!!!

PS. I'm more of a Monica but Jennifer Aniston is gorgeous.

It doesn't take much to make me smile, really.

A simple acknowledgement, no matter how shallow, is enough to make my day.

PS. This Israel Mekaniko guy is funny. I love reading his blog.

Brain Dump.

I am a hopeless romantic and last night, I realized that there's a reason behind it: I've always wanted to become a wife. Even when I was younger, I went on dates with the thought that I might be spending my life with the person I am meeting for the very first time. It's always been that way.

I started dating in 2002, when a friend tagged me along a date with her boyfriend so the boyfriend's buddy would have someone to talk to. We ended up going on 3 dates but, even if he's so obnoxious (that time), that I wanted to smack his head to his coffee, I still fantasized about how we'd spend lazy Sunday afternoons together.

The only exception for this I-think-I-wanna-marry-you mentality was probably when I dated my block mate but even then, we ended up dating for a full year.

Going out of topic but bottom-line is that I've always wanted to be a wife. I think believe I function better emotionally? psychologically? mentally? when I'm part of a "we" instead of just being on my own…which I've learned to accept. I'm not cut out to be Miss Independent. I get it.

*******

Reason for that's most probably because I love doing the support thing most…which might be rebutted by at least 2 people who have called me contradicting.

*******

I apparently have lost the ability to express my love, care, and concern. For the record, I blame the babydaddy. For now, I have to push myself to be that annoying girlfriend I once was again.

*******

I am possessive beyond belief and I get crazy-jealous. As in CUHRAYZEE-jealous. I forgot how severe these…diseases are and they're taking too much work on my boyfriend's end. Yes, this early.

*******

Despite all this, though, I am quite lucky to have a guy who's patience, understanding, and love know no boundaries. I know he's got limits (contradicting nanaman. That's the reason why I was dubbed "walking contradiction" by a college friend) and I'm not stupid enough to push them and that is why I will try to become a better partner for him.

*******

Blah blah blah, those words don't mean anything, I know, but I'm having a hard time showing how I'm feeling. Thanks to 7 years of practice with College Guy.

*******

(Hahahahahahaha! Sinisi lahat sa lalaki.)

*******

Relationship also suffering from missing each other so much. What is clingy?

******

I want to move out. Seriously. Ironically, the want peaked at the height of the storm yesterday. I want to know how I'll react to something like that whilst caring for a hyperactive kid. (Whilst talaga?)

*******

For some reason, my mind goes back to that one day in September last year. I wonder why.

*******

I definitely need to stop smoking. I have every reason to but I don't believe I have the discipline to actually do it but I will do it…after this last cigarette pack I have with me now.

*******

I'm thinking of getting an actual office job but all the jobs I want requires me to relocate to the South. Great for me but I guess I have to wait for Brianna to finish this academic year before I move although I really, really, really want it to happen now.

*******

I should update my iPod playlist now but it's too tedious a task, I'm getting lazy just by thinking about it.

*******


First of all, there's no sea anywhere near Cainta. Second, I don't want to live there. Yun lang naman apila ko dito. Hahahahaha!

You see, I'm running out of things to do online so I've been taking all kinds of tests posted on my Facebook timeline…even those with jeje graphics.

*******

I want to do and be a lot of things lately and my save-up-for-the-future deadline is coming in full speed which explains the anxiety I've been having these past few days.

Online shopping.

So last night, the boyfriend and I were online shopping for cars and homes for sale. He was the one who found the most pogi car I've seen since 2001, when I fell in love with that red hatchback1994 Honda Civic along St. Paul Rd on our way to school one lazy morning.

Anyway, he saw this house and I can't move on from how much I love it. He's pretty proud of himself for finding it…


The clincher? It's in BF ParaƱaque! I've been going on and on and on and on about wanting to live in the South, specifically in this community, and we've found a house there that fits both our tastes and needs.

This will now go to my vision board and hopefully we get to purchase this soon!

I might've just found "The One".


Good god, I can't stop staring at it and get all high-school-girl kilig when I minimize all my windows.

I don't even like red cars and I've been lusting over passion orange SIRs for the longest time but this formula red SIR…dear god…so pogi!

And the best part? The "Pilipinas" plate. That simple detail made my heart leap 'cause I've always wanted a car that has an old school plate.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! THIS CAR IS SO POGI! NAKAKAKILIG BWISIT!

Chris Jones, whoever you are, you are doing it damn right, son!

Ohmygod Joseph Marco

Currently watching Pure Love online because of this guy:

Screen grabbed from PinayTambayan.com

I first noticed Joseph Marco on the Primetime Bida soap, Sabel, back in 2011 where he was part of a love triangle with Jessy Mendiola and AJ Perez.

Now that he's back on Primetime Bida, my life is suddenly back on track. I have something to look forward to again. Forget about the future and spending the rest of my life in the loving arms of my favorite person; Joseph Marco on primetime is what life is all about now.

Too relevant.

This quote is too relevant today, it deserves to be posted everywhere!

“Whatever you give a woman, she will only make greater. Give her your sperm, she’ll give you a baby. Give her a house, she’ll give you a home. Give her groceries, she’ll give you a meal. Give her a smile, she’ll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!” 
- Erick S. Gray

Also, the official hashtag of the day is #asakaboi.
