Yesterday was the “ulan ng meme ni Joseph Gordon-Levitt” day also known as my (24th) birthday! Yes, it is MY year as in year of the Sheep/Goat/Ram whatever. Napaghahalataan na I follow these things. It doesn’t hurt, you know. BUT the predictions did hurt because sabi daw ng mga bituin, malas daw ang mga Sheep people sa pera, karera, at pag-ibig.

SO GANON ALL OF THE ABOVE??? Uminit ulo ko, guys. Pero gaya nga ng sabi ni madam Zenaida Seva, “Hindi hawak ng mga bituin ang ating kapalaran, gabay lamang sila. Meron tayong free will, gamitin natin ito.” So far, tama siya don sa lovelife part. SO FAR. April pa lang. Maghunos dili ka.

Happenings: Switchfoot live in Baltimore

I’ve been feeling super low since the past week (I kind of blame Maroon 5 for this) that I almost forgot that I will be seeing Switchfoot on the 26th! The thought hit me three days ago and I wasn’t really into it. Of course I wouldn’t want to waste my ticket and besides, I love the band so why not? It might lift my spirits! Plus, I really need to get out of the house.

I left home at around 6:30pm. The doors at Ram’s Head Live didn’t open til 7 so I got some time to spare. I didn’t want to wait in line since I was alone (huhu). I even checked social anxiety support forums on how to act when going to a concert alone. I’m a pretty self-conscious person so I was panicking and really very nervous yesterday morning. Luckily, I followed two Pinays (Nella and Faith) in line and they agreed to drag me with them during the waiting and the whole event. Talk about fate. Yayyy!

I’m dying to breathe in these abundant skies

I was feeling exceptionally sad today. My job applications are still, very much, job applications without confirmation, response or whatsoever. I feel like every day passes and there’s nothing worthwhile happening. And above all, I miss my family. I miss home. I know I shouldn’t be thinking negatively and that this thing is already an opportunity (although my stubborn brain is not functioning that thought well enough) but I can’t help myself. I was bitten by the homesick bug today.

So I went out and decided to walk it all off. I feel like I’m about to break down and I just need to breathe it all out. I started to hit “Shuffle songs” on my iPod and guess what the first song was.


I’m learning to breathe, I’m learning to crawl

The song that I listen to whenever I feel hopeless and helpless. The song that never fails to comfort me. It played first. It played when I needed it.

I’m a firm believer of signs. I think this is the universe telling me to not give up just yet. No universe, I’m not giving up. But I needed that. Thanks.
