I Miss My Guitar Calluses

I miss strumming my guitar yet it's just hanging on the wall in my room. Ever since I came home, I never had the chance to play my axe which I used to love to do. I'm too caught up in between work and my household chores and taking care of my nephew. I'm basically still on the adjustment stage. I'm only barely a month in my home-based job and I'm working nights. I'm still trying to cope up with my work schedule as well.

I miss the sound of my guitar and singing with it at the same time. I remember how it hurts whenever I get guitar calluses on my fingertips. But no matter how painful the calluses become, I feel satisfied whenever I learn to play new songs with my guitar.

I don't know what's happening to me but I haven't given myself a chance to do what I love to do. My passion for music has taken a back seat for years now. I guess it's time to go back to it. I promise to play music again and I will post some of them online. So be ready Social Media! I'm going back to music again! :)

Wishing You A Great 4th of July!

I have been serving Americans for years now. And in my years of service to them, I have learned a lot about their culture and their country. I also learned how much respect they have to those soldiers who fought for their country, for their independence.

Today is the 4th of July and I would like to say,

Music And Brandon

At the age of 4, that's when my nephew learned to talk. To his parents surprise, he already learned to hum a tune or two even before he can talk. So when he finally was able to talk, he didn't just hum but also sang songs that we didn't know the language yet, loud and proud. LOL! Sometimes listening to him sing at that time makes you think twice if he actually is singing the songs you have in mind because he make different lyrics out of them.
Now that he's seven, I keep on introducing to him different song genre. So far, he likes listening to classical music. And if I have enough money, I'd enroll him in Piano lessons so he'd get to play the classical music by himself. I likes the idea for now.

I can see a future musician from my nephew. I know for sure that when he becomes older, he'd be more interested in music than I was when I was his age. Well, I didn't have anyone to support me when I was little. So I think, he's fortunate enough. I won't think twice about buying the music instruments he'd like to acquire or if he'd like to try the teenage engineering op-1 in case he'd be into recording music and stuff, I will be there to support him.

I could be a stage aunt in case he'd pursue into a musical career. I definitely will be more than proud to be an influence to him in music.

Finding Happiness

I was happy when I was in Manila. I had my boyfriend and had plenty of friends. Apart from being able to work in a  corporate world, I also kept myself busy with my Church obligations. However, it felt like I got exhausted with everything that was going on back there. Maybe it has to do with getting stressed out at work and the environment. You know how it is in Manila. It's always a busy place. I just couldn't keep up any longer. It came to the point that I felt like I lost a part of myself in it. I wasn't happy anymore. I found myself longing to come back home.

So I turned my back from Manila. I'm home and  I really feel comfortable here. Although me and my mother still have a few arguments which I can deal with this time around, I really can't complain much. Anyway, there is our Brandon who lights up the mood whenever a conflict arises. He can let everyone forget about being angry just by opening his mouth or just by him being around. He is such an angel.

With what's going on in my life right now, I realized that I keep finding happiness. And I kept looking for it in places when I can only find it from deep within myself. I have contemplated a lot since I came home. I have learned to take things easy and not to rush. I learned to relax.

Being home with my family made me realize that they are more important than anything else in this world. I'm grateful that I am now here for them. And by writing this post, I just realized that my family is my happiness.

Can't Wait For Monday

There's another thing that makes me giggle in excitement this coming Monday, April 13th. My boyfriend is coming to town! I just couldn't wait for the moment we'll be together once again. He'll be staying here for a month or so to help build the new apartment building that my Mother is planning to do for years now. Her wish will finally be granted.

It won't be a grand vacation for my boyfriend but his stay here in Polomolok is going to be productive for sure. He said he's ready for the challenge. His tools for work and lighting cables are all set for him to start doing his job. LOL!

I can't wait for Monday!

32 Years Of Existence!

In my 32 years of existence, I have embraced freedom for 10 years. But now I chose to be back home with my family. I have loved and failed on relationships but right now, I'm in love with my 23 year old boyfriend. I have tried to be successful on corporate jobs but I think the corporate world isn't for me. I have made lots of friends and I am continuously doing my Church obligations. I think I'm still on track.

Today is my birthday. Nothing grand has happened but it's alright. Being with my family and being at peace with myself are what's important for me right now. I may be unemployed for now but I know and I trust that God will help me land a job that will at the same time allow me to spend time with my loved ones. I may not have succeeded my career in the corporate world but I have gained knowledge and experience that I may use for my future home-based job. I know I'll be alright.

In my 32 years of existence, God has guided me. I may have failed numerous times but He never lose faith in me. He helped me become the woman that I am now - better and should I say bolder? :)

I'm happy at where I am right now. Happy birthday to me! :)
