I Am Breaking Up With You...

I still like you, but I can no longer tolerate your presence for more than a few hours a week.

Therefore, I am officially breaking up with you, alcohol. 'Di ko na kayang makipagsabayan sa iyo.

Social, professional, casual, fleeting, sexual - so many kinds of relationships exist. In addition, there are various Facebook relationship satuses - Single, In a relationship, In an open relationship, Engaged, Married, and - my personal favorite - It's complicated.

Defining an It's complicated relationship status is easy - one must simply be unwilling to define his relationship status with another, and not talk about it. In other words, an It's complicated status simply means (to me, at least) that one does not wish to be labeled as Single, is currently seeing someone, but does not want to formally define a relationship with that someone, akin to saying something like "I do not wish to speak about it, therefore I will just say It's complicated and leave it at that".


My relationship status: Complicated guy in a relationship.

One City at a Time

I consider myself lucky that I've been able to travel the country on the company's dime. Although I haven't been able to enjoy my stay in a particular place to the fullest, I'm not complaining - I get to sightsee after the job is done. Since starting my job, I've been sent to Cabanatuan City (twice), Davao City, Legazpi City, Zamboanga City (twice), San Fernando City (Pampanga and La Union), Dagupan City (twice), Cebu City, and Bacolod City (twice). During my travels, I've realized two things. One, I don't like travelling with my laptop. I have that tendency to just stay in, especially if the hotel has free WiFi. Two, I like travelling with companions just fine, but sometimes I prefer travelling alone - more freedom to choose where to go to, and how long to stay there.


I've been playing this augmented-reality MMO game for months, and I estimate that I'm a few weeks before maxing out my levels. Which is perfect, actually - with the nature of my job, I get to travel AND establish my presence on the game, one city at a time. #ingress


I am way behind on my bucket list. Since the first thing one should accomplish on one's bucket list is to actually sit down and add entries on one's list (which I've never had the inclination to do so before), therefore I am behind. But if I were to add items to my bucket list right now, then my first entry would be to travel the world, one city at a time.

Falling in Love (Is So Hard on The Knees)

You think you're in love
Like it's a real sure thing
But every time you fall
You get your ass in a sling
You used to be strong
But now it's ooh baby please
'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees

- Aerosmith, Falling in Love (Is So Hard on The Knees)


Love is not rational, and never has been. Such is the story why men fall in love with bitches, and women fall in love with assholes.

Back to Basics

Okay, I think I've said this more than a few times in the past already. I think it's time to resume blogging. I've said recently to someone that blogging is a form of stress relief. As I'm feeling quite a bit of stress nowadays, maybe it's high time that I resume writing. Then again, I never claimed to be a writer - just a regular guy with his own insights, and Internet access.


It's been roughly a year since I last posted, and quite a bit more than that since my last proper post, so I think I'll spend a few minutes thinking on what I want to write about. (Time to put the rusty thinking gears in motion)

Scanning through some of my (quite) older posts, I did have quite a bit of early 20s angst, which may have resulted from me starting my quarter life crisis a bit earlier than usual (I think). But reading through them now, I find it funny that I had those thoughts during that part of my life.


There's one thing I missed out on writing about - my 10,000th day of life. If I remember my calculations correctly, it would have fallen sometime in July of last year. Come to think of it, something significant did happen to me during that time. That was the time I finally hung up my BPO headset for good (though I never went back to taking calls after 2006), and embarked on a new career outside of the industry. I met quite a lot of people during that time, and that was also the time when I met her.

Funny how life works.

You call it Valentine's Day. I call it...

...the day before my birthday. Single or not, I know I'm happy on the next day. =)

Ranting for the nth Time

Here I am, supposedly on my 3-day vacation, yet I find myself working on the email updates that my teammates are sending me. Understandable for 2 of them since I left what they're running as incomplete, but as for the other one, I did 5 day's worth of input and all she had to do was update everything.
