Confession of a once in hiatus blogger

I have to make a confession. Aside from the fact that I am really busy, I lost the desire to blog about just anything. I thought I needed time to think so I stayed away for a while, maybe in that way I can sort things out. My busy work schedule, what is happening out there which made my world go round and not to mention why I lost interest with something I so love doing. But even on those quiet times when I stayed away from the blinking cursor, I had to admit that I really missed this thing called blogging and the people I've come to know called friends.

Where did the old time went? It dawned on me that one of the factors why I had a temporary distaste to share anything was because I am missing old folks who were also away right now: blog friends who are in hiatus and those who decided to quit for good alike (if in any case you're reading this, which I know you do, just want to let you know that I'm missing you).

Reality knocked me down. It's not blogging that I want to stay away with, it's the prying eyes. I know this fact ever since and it's a shame I let it take the best of me. Everytime I try to write something, they ended up on my drafts and they soon piled up. One proof that I want to share it but afraid to do so.  


One day, I realized that we're blogging for different purposes. Some wanted to share their thoughts while it's an outlet for others. One blogger once told me that I should always remember that I am also blogging for myself. When several people take interest of your writing, somehow you would feel happy but itchy and watchful as well. You would consider their feelings and thoughts, fearing that you would hurt someone unintentionally along the way or would cross the line somehow. But blogging is about respect too. Respect for other people's feelings and opinions. Bloggers have different genes and creative abilities and so as their way of sharing. With that I rest my case especially when I read the words below:

Each of us has a fire in our hearts burning for something.
It's our responsibility in life to find it and keep it lit.
This is your life and it's a short one.
Don't let others extinguish your flame.

For the Bucket Listers

This is a news for all the people out there who loves to do bucket list,
for all the people who are good in crossing out items in their list
and, for all the people who are not so good with bucket list

I discovered Day Zero Project from one of the blogs I am following last year and
started doing my own list early this year.
Personally, I love attaining set goals but when it comes to bucket list,
I always suck BIG time.
That is why I love Day Zero Project.

There you can create your own list and they will gauge your performance.
It's very easy. And the amazing thing is that 
you can complete 101 list in 1001 days.
No pressure at all, you can adjust your time and wait for the right moment
while crossing out the rest on the list which are easier than the others.
If you are interested, grasp the insight here. The idea was better explained there.

And since most of you folks are good with bucket list,
and you might already ran out of ideas before you turned 30,
no problem, there are wonderful and crazy ideas over there.
and so on. Believe me, new ideas are sprouting everyday.

If you are interested, go over there and start your list. It's not late yet,
remember, you'll have 1001 days and the timer will start once you started your list.
I had my list there, but was set to private cause some were too personal, involving other people
whose identities I want to keep private in respect of their privacy.
But I have a tab up there if you're interested.
The page is yet to be updated.

Cheerdance and Vacation

Okay, so I woke up today and felt my writing genes kicking. My mind was and guess is still pre-occupied by tons of information and things which are somehow I still cannot process (just for the time being). And while some of my camping buddies were savoring the pristine white sand beach of Boracay, I was left doomed in the office. Yes, sometimes life is unfair. But I'm not sulking cause comes November and it would be my time - hello SAGADA. It's so far yet so near. I can't contain the excitement and I don't want to. The last time I did it was March when we were heading to Puerto Galera and I ended up sick, spending time in bed while they're having fun out. Booo, that one is unfair.

More detailed story about that will follow. Today, I just want to share the pictures I found sitting in my drafts for like eternity. These were taken from date I can no longer remember but early this year. Competitions like this never fail to make me shout my lungs out. These are my kind of thing to watch and with that being said, you can already guess what I'm eyeing on the 75th season of the UAAP.

And pardon me if there was a man in red in majority of the pictures. We arrived kinda late and there was no space left for us except beneath the stairs. Go figure out what we did to get the pictures.
