A writer can write us a love letter everyday, not just those in scented papers, but in table napkins, in bathroom walls, in their writing blog, in our wrists. They will ink us with words like forever and eternity which for a moment we will believe because they will coat it in sugar and cotton…
Out of curiosity, I answered a personality test i found while browsing tumblr posts. Hmm, the results are somewhat accurate. Cool. :)
Your view on yourself:
Other people find you very interesting, but you are really hiding your true self. Your friends love you because you are a good listener. They’ll probably still love you if you learn to be yourself with them.
The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren’t interested in wasting time with people you don’t really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.
Your views on education
You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.
The right job for you:
You have many goals and want to achieve as much as you can. The jobs you enjoy are those that let you burn off your considerable excess energy.
How do you view success:
You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.
What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don’t ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.
Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
It is the perfect word to describe this phase in life that I am going through.
I can’t blame myself for being so idealistic. Imagine having a good time during your college life, and after marching up the stage and claiming that sheet of paper you call a “DIPLOMA”, you have this post-graduate depression syndrome.
I was recently hired as a Marketing Personnel here at a call center in Batangas. The work was kinda easy, since the job was somewhat similar to what I usually do when I was still in The LATHE. But I realized that this lacks action, I find everything monotonous. I have nothing against the job itself. It’s the way how I perceive every usual working day.
Honestly, a few months before graduating, I envision myself as a very busy person after graduation, with a work that takes more than the usual eight hours. But here I am, spending my eight hours a day surfing the internet for marketing stuff, proofreading manuals and contracts. I realized that this job will never give me the satisfaction that I need.
All I ever wanted is a job that’s related to my course, a job that can make me interact with persons and deal with matters related to Human Resource.
Let’s just say that at this point in time, I am trying to find my way out of this ‘box’ they call ‘my work’ and into a box that says ‘dream job’.
Wala ka sa The LATHE sa panahong nadoon ako kung...
…hindi mo kilala ang orginal na members ng samahan ng mga ma-L. Welcome lahat ng malandi sa group namin. Malala pa dahil kami ang itinuturo ng lahat na nagturo sa ibang staffers ng kalandian. Oh well, hindi naman namin kasalanan yun, di ga nga, Louie, Josh, Jandel, Ana Leah at Airra?
…hindi mo alam na “nagpapang-agaw” sina Josh at Jandel kay Louie. I admit, hindi ko talaga masisisi yung dalawa, pero nakakatawa lang yung mga way nila. ROFL!
…hindi mo alam na mahilig si Josh sa ‘BJ’. Disclaimer: Hindi ito green. hahaha. Kasabay ng mga street food na nilalantakan namin, (lalo na kapag ginagabi ng uwi galing sa pub) talagang gusto ni Josh na uminom ng Buko Juice. In short, BJ. :)
…hindi mo na-gets kung bakit naging ‘green’ ang pangalan ni Bryan John. Si Bryan ang isa sa pinakamakulit at pinakanakakasundo ko pagdating sa pang-aasar kay McDo. Oh well, Bryan John…initial pa lang, green na. Initial implies. Green din kasi siya. :)
…sino ang tunay na kumakausap sa birtud. Si Josh yun. Yung ‘huwaaaaaaw’ na naririnig natin sa showtime ay ginanagawa na niya bago pa yun naging katatawanan sa tv. Para kay Josh, yun ang pang-vocalization niya.
…kung bakit naiikumpara sa buwan si Jandel. Well, hindi dahil sa sobrang puti at mala-porselanang kutis niya ang reason kung bakit ko jinu-joke si Jandel nung 2nd year ako na para siyang buwan. Yun ay dahil sa FACE niya na minsan eh naaninag ang craters. May mga astronaut pa nga daw eh, sabi ni Ana Leah, sa katauhan ni Louie at ni Airra.
…naranasan mong ma-stranded sa lumang pub hanggang 8 pm kasama ako, si Ana Leah, Louie, Airra, Jandel at Josh. Pag minamalas talaga sa panahon ng tag-ulan, bumabaha sa unahan ng BatStateU. Kaasar, pero mas malala yung mga araw na inaabot kami ng gabi sa lumang pub na naulan. Nabasa ka na nga, papasukan pa ng tubig ang sapatos mo sa paglalakad sa baha.
…kung hindi mo kilala ang mga loveteams. ShEmerson, LoRenz…yan ang mga example ng mga loveteams nung time na nadoon pa ako sa LATHE. Plus pa diyan yung mga nag-aagawan, kagaya ni Josh at ni Jandel kay Louie, si Eden at si Emerson kay McDo. Too many to mention.
...kung sino ang nag-discuss sa staffers ng Sensus Communis kung paano nabubuo ang baby girl at boy. I take the credit from that. Dahil din siguro sa ako ang psych (at isa sa mga medyo ‘green’), ako talaga ang may credibility para iduscuss ang mga ganitong bagay.
…hindi ka kasama sa sandmakmak na victories nung AY 2011-2012. Finalist ang Risorgimento sa CMMA. Hakot award ang 3 dyaryo, #2 ang Journal at #1 ang folio sa Region 4-A. Dagdag pa ang madaming nagqualify for LHEPC, kung saan naghakot din ang pub ng awards. :) Inaantay na lang namin ang 2012 CMMA. Sana po, Lord, manalo na kami.
Madami pa akong unforgettable memories kasama ang mga ka-staff ko sa LATHE. Grumaduate man ako, hindi ko ibabaon ang mga ito sa limot. This made my college life more wonderful and meaningful. Dahil dito sa LATHE, makikilala mo ang mga taong tanggap ang ugali mo, kahit gaano ka pa kakakaiba. LOVE YOU all guys!
Twenty things that I wanted to do or to happen during my 20's and beyond
Almost a week from now, I’ll be celebrating my 20th birthday. Wishes? Plans? Dates? Nah. I prefer spending it my way — working, working and yeah, working. That’s my yearly routine. And of course, I want change. Oh well. Anyway, as the title implies, there are a lot of things that I wanted to do or happen starting from that point in my life where I turn 20.
Finish my thesis. I REALLY need to finish this before MARCH 15. Or else I thing number two won’t happen.
Graduate on time. Well, this is connected with thing number 1. I badly wanted to graduate on time, and I am willing to do anything for it.
Find a stable job after graduation.STABLE JOB is defined in my personal dictionary as a “job with 15,000-20,000 pesos salary, 8 hours a day, five days a week, including holidays”. But hey, since I am a self-confessed workaholic, I don’t really mind having a two or three jobs, as long as I can manage my own time.
Travel. After finding a stable job (or jobs), I might also be able to reward myself for hard work. Places? Egypt will probably be on the list, together with Paris and Greece.
Get to law school. Maybe, at the age of 22 or 23, after enjoying my job/s. Haha. I really wanted to be a lawyer. Hard work, patience and brains will be required to get in here.
Pass the BAR exams. Connected to thing number 5. I don’t really dream of becoming a topnotcher or anything. I just wanted to be Atty. Lorenz Aimee Mutia, period.
If plan five and six fails, go to graduate school to get my master’s degree. This is more like a setback. But hey, to be able to become a licensed psychologist, you must have a MA in Psychology. :)
Buy a place of my own. I dream of having this at the age of 25 or 26. If God permits, I wanted to have a townhouse near my parents’ place. I don’t really want to live isolated.
Buy my own car. Preferably a pink one or black one will do.
Teach. I really like kids, so I think I should try teaching. I prefer kindergarten kiddos — minus the crying, the snots and the poop, excuse me.
Improve my family’s home. Self-explanatory as it may sound, but no. I have a lot of plans with my parent’s house, you see. I wanted them to live comfortably and peacefully.
Be a journalist (or at least have an article published at one of the country’s dailies). Aside from being a psych student, I spent my college years working for The LATHE, so why wouldn’t want to get his or her name published again in a byline? I fell in love with writing and I don’t want to give it up.
Write a best-seller. Preferably a self-help or a fictional novel.
Wish upon a shooting star. Ok, I know that this one’s VERY childish, but please bear with me (just in case everyone reads this post). I haven’t seen one, believe it or not.
Date someone whom I have never met before. Hmmm…I don’t need a guy who fits my standards. I just want to meet someone who doesn’t, yet can make me appreciate life more.
Fall in love. So much for the drama, my friends. I hope that by this time, I am strong and wise enough to handle the drama and anything that comes with a relationship.
My dream proposal. Duh! Who wouldn’t right? I don’t really need an uber romantic and humiliating one. KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) is the key, in my perspective.
Plan my own wedding. I still haven’t had any idea what my dream wedding would look like. The gown, of course, will be designed my me..together with the entourage’s dresses. Period. Haha.
Marry “him”. HIM does not refer to anyone right now. HIM will come at the right place and at the right time. He doesn’t need to fit my standards, as long as he makes me fall in love with him everyday.
Have my own kiddos. Last but not the least, of course. Two would be good, a boy and a girl.
This is something I look forward to this Valentine’s Day.
During the past three years, I have spent the 14th of February inside the publication office, working on an article or just chillin’, hating the idea of going out and seeing all those couples enjoying themselves (partly because I know that I could never spend that day like those couples do. Eugh).
Anyway, I just realized that maybe Valentine’s Day is not all about the romantic love that fills the air. It’s a time of giving back. And of course, going forward, optimistic that someday, I’m going to find that special someone of mine.
