I have the coolest lola!

My grandma is the coolest in the world. She's over 85 years old (I was the one who lost count of her age) yet here she is playing Wii with us! Haha super fun! She's not fast enough though. I think she's playing bowling when this photo was taken. Look at my cousin (extreme right), sobrang tawang tawa sha pinipigilan niya lang. Baka ma-pressure si Lola mahiya na maglaro. haha

when the 'undo' function is not available

It just seems that I have a knack for learning things the hard way. I just don't know which is better - to be the person who often commits small, common errors, or the person who doesn't commit errors as much, but when error is committed, the impact is bigger. Obviously I am the latter. Or not. There's only silence from the other side of the world...

Then there's the pH level from negative seven. I blame that on the sound waves that must have transformed somewhat from the sender to the (un)intended receiver, and it was blown out of proportion. Thanks to a kind soul (who has a three-letter name) who enlightened me. I really felt a lot better after the talk. Name starts with M.

So this morning, another good, good mentor lifted my spirits up. I don't know if it's ignorance, stupidity or lack of judgment on my part but it certainly was a learning experience. If I ever shed a tear, it was when this person (whom I truly look up to) told me I shouldn't worry about it and that eveRything will bE fiNe.

There's no CTRL+Z. That's fo shiz.

doin' that thing you do

I just have to say that right now, it sucks to be me. There are things that I don't want to do but must do to keep things in order. I've spoken with several people and they all said the same thing. If you want change, you have to instigate change. And for certain people, there are certain degrees of responsibility. I know that I have to step up and own it, to play the role. It's just so freakin' hard to let it out. At one point, I want to be truthful... but I also don't want to hurt. I know what I should do, I just don't know how to do it. I also don't want it to feel like a task that's imposed on me.

How do you cite the cold facts, call out underperformance, and in the same way try to lift a soul that you know is unhappy? It's not easy to go down on someone and afterwards, say everything will be alright. Life is unfair and sometimes, when you make mistakes, you need someone to point it out to you just so you know. It's for your own improvement and I hope that after this you come out a better person.

It's like when you squeeze a calamansi over a wounded nipple, sprinkle a little salt and cover it with band aid. Then when you think the nipple has healed, yank off the band aid.

Jeeeeezaz! The last two sentences aren't totally connected to the whole thought of this post.

can't stop

The world I love
The tears I drop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Ever wonder if it's all for you
The world I love
The trains I hop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Come and tell me when it's time to
