Perks and Much More

I got off work early today because of an earlier shift so I figured I’d finally write something in here. I know it’s been a while.. so many things have happened since the last time I wrote here more than a month ago. If I started where I left off, yes my best friend(s) came to town to visit me and it was the one of the best weekends ever, or if not, then the best weekend of this year. Even if it meant I had to trade sleep and my zombie eyes had to work overtime. We went island hopping, partied like there’s no tomorrow, I became a tourist in my own city because I got to go to places I had never been and of course the most important things: my best friends, and a piece of Jakarta life in my not-so-new life back home here in Cebu.

Over the weekend I watched Perks of Being a Wallflower with my sister Jana. Perfect is quite an understatement. I read the book not too long ago and the depiction was absolutely spot on. From the characters (THE CHARACTERS!!) to the flow of the story, to the music and just the whole vibe, you couldn’t ask for a much better book-to-screen adaptation of a book. I wouldn’t mind watching it again. I just might.

Sometimes I wonder if I’ve ever really made and self-developments over the past year. It’s the first week of October already and just about a year ago I was thinking about how I could make better choices and live the life I actually want for myself instead of just recycling all the what-ifs in my head. Obviously I have many more things to work on personally but I’ve come pretty far haven’t I? I figured I’ve got to give myself some credit for making choices I never would have thought of making a year ago. I deserve a small pat on the back.


  1. The first thing that came to mind when I read “I¬íve got to give myself some credit” is a credit card. I know, maybe it’s subliminal, but I think you should spend some more. That is, if you haven’t spent a lot these past few months.

    You know what, you sound so mature (and adult?) right now, I can’t barely make out the juiceee I’ve known eons ago! I don’t know if it’s an improvement, but it sure is… how can I put it… nevermind. I feel old all of a sudden.

      I don’t know how much I’ve spent but I think I should make more wiser spending decisions! Thanks, Kevin. Means a lot. You’ve read my blog since 2005/6 so you would know. We’re all old! Haha.
