QOTD: #7

Why are we drawn to certain people?

As I grow older, I realize I have a deep affinity for these kinds of people:

  • one who likes philosophical discussions, and shares about his life, strengths, weaknesses, fears, hopes, dreams and childhood memories
  • one who loves the moon, the stars, and the universe
  • one who shows sincere kindness towards children and the elderly
  • writes or loves poetry
  • prefers handwritten notes, letters

What’s with the question?? I just remembered Carla. She’s one of the awesome people I met this year. With the short time we’ve been together, I had so much fun. Her personality is very interesting; she’s like a Rubik’s cube to me. Haha. And I feel warmth. God knows I’d love to know her better.

So it would seem, this post is really just about me missing my “mommy” Carla. And everytime I miss her laughter, I just read the “Thank You” card she wrote. And then a smile is painted on my face. 🙂

Tonight

As I lay here in bed, staring blankly at a book cover and with my earphones on, memories of the past weeks crossed my mind. A few happy ones, mostly worrisome. And once again I am reminded of the big questions in life: What are the things that matter most to me? What are my priorities? My own little troubles and challenges seem so insignificant when I think of my cousin who’s fighting for her dear life.

So I guess this is me feeling a tad bit sad. Painful menstrual cramps ain’t helping either. Wish my fairy godfather would relieve my pains.

Lord, I lift it all up to you. I pray for everyone’s safety and good health. Safe travels for my mentor, too.

And for tonight, I just want to rest. And let things be.

Hello World!

So it’s been a long time since my last post! A lot of things had happened and there’s so much I wanted to write about; wanted being the operative word. 

I got into the habit of writing stuff but never having the time nor the will to finish them, so they all ended up in my drafts; it’s like sending a text message but with no one as recipient so they stay in your drafts. I’m hoping to change that, though.

Just installed the wordpress mobile app, and I’m writing this post on my phone. So here’s to hoping I would update this blog regularly from now on. 

A cold rainy night! Sleep well, my dear.
