Routine — Cuddling . . .

Sleeping, bathing, tooth-brushing, eating, breathing, walking to school or to the office, doing chores, finishing tasks, communicating and mingling with other people — these are just some of the things that we do on a regular basis in order to live.

Life itself is a routine. Sometimes, these routines tend to be boring. What we need to do is add up some spice for them not to be boring.

These are some repetitive things that I enjoy doing…

CUDDLING

Believe it or not, being in a relationship can be a chore. I know a lot of people who were in a relationship for three years or more who’d suddenly break-up with their boyfriends or girlfriends. When I asked them why, they told me the same answer — “He/She is getting boring.”

It’s understandable if a break-up is caused by a third-party or by irreconcilable differences… but boredom as a reason is beyond my comprehension. As Dada quotes it, “If you find your boyfriend boring, then why did you go with him in the first place?”

I must admit, it also crossed my mind that my relationship with Dada is becoming dull because we only get to do the usual things — plan our once-a-week get together, watch movies, have late night din-dins, go shopping, or play online games. We do these even on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. We rarely go out-of-town or visit places.

I guess, the key to preventing boredom is to know where your partner is coming from. Communication helps a lot in settling dilemmas (then add a lot of hugs and kisses).

Whenever I am frustrated or whenever I think Dada’s becoming too lazy, I often snarl at him and tell him how I feel. He will always explain his side and I try my best to understand him (although I’m usually stubborn and deaf when I’m angry). Dada is an introvert and he is content with our usual activities. There are also times when he can’t think of any ideas so he relies on me to fill in for him. Sometimes, he wants to get my input first before he can formulate a plan. With that said, I’m mostlydoing the planning and he’s the one doing everything else. LoL!

BLOGGING

From grade school up ’til high school, we were required by the teachers to write on our school-mandated diaries and take into account the things that happened each day. Failure to put an entry merits a detention. I only have a few friends and I seldom tell my secrets and frustrations to anyone. It was my diary who’d know it firsthand — followed by our class adviser. LoL! Since then, I’ve been fond of writing journals.

My first blog...

My buddies introduced me to VOX way back in 2007. Since blogs serve as a virtual counterpart of a diary, I’ve also been addicted to it. I  then transferred to WordPress when VOX closed down. Hopefully, they don’t share the same fate.

Anyway…

Blogging is therapeutic for me. Same as before, I only have a few friends and I am an introvert. I am better at writing than actually uttering the words. My blog serves as an outlet of my thoughts. If I want my own feelings and opinions to come across, this is where I primarily post it.

Pain . . .

There are days when everything around us happens as hoped for; and, there are days when everything seems utterly devastated.

Pain will always be there. It’s up to us on how to tip the scales once it occurs. Whether or not we like the outcome, we just need to accept it and move on.

Our time in this world is too short. Let’s not waste it on negativity.

Let’s find a Purpose to continue living. Value life because it’s a blessing.

Regrets . . .

I never had major regrets although there are instances wherein I ‘ll think of my past decisions or doings as a waste of my time, money or effort.

These are some of the things I did that made me upset …

  • I should never have bought a Philips GoGear Spark. I should’ve invested my money for an iPod. My DAP began malfunctioning a few months after I bought it. The fault is irritating but tolerable.
  • I should never have trusted headphones other than those from Sennheiser. The Audio-Technica ATH-SJ1 I bought was a waste of moneysomewhat. I gave it to my younger sister as a present.
  • I should’ve saved up money to buy my own dSLR.
  • I should’ve stuck to my diet so my face and tummy will not bloat.
  • I should’ve organized or attended at least one photoshoot.
  • I should’ve grabbed the collar and kicked the a$$ of that guy who rammed me with his motorbike.

.

Anyway, these’re what’s on top of my head.

The one other thing that I pondered on for a very long time is my otaku side.

What could’ve happened if I am not into animé and computer games? Prolly, I’ll be a beauty pageant freak or a fashionista or someone famous. LoL!

The only thing is, if I wasn’t an otaku, I may never have met my Dada. He’s contributed much to me. I cannot imagine what my life would be like if he’s not even a part of it.

Like what’s engraved on the personalized key-chain I gave him …

“If the things that happened to me never happened … I would never have met you, I would neve have your love and I will never know the true meaning of happiness.”™

New Year’s Resolution 2011 . . .

I am not the optimistic type of person. I rely on past events to forecast what lies ahead. Most of the time, I have the “hope for the best but expect the worst” mindset so I will not get disappointed if things do not happen as planned.

These are what I want to achieve this year.

  • EXERCISE & DIET. I’ll be gearing up, jog at least twice a week and do crunches daily before going to work. My nutritionist told me to stick with veggie salads and pasta. I guess I’ll also limit the caffeine and sweets intake. Wow, that’s hard since my boyfriend looooooves chocolates and I loooooovvvee coffee. GANBAREEEE!!!
  • SAVE UP. I’ll buff up my savings, limit the impulsive buying and hope that before the year ends, I’ll have enough money to keep my end of the bargain with Dada.
  • TRUST AND FAITH UNBENDING. Even though I observe a lot of negativity around me, what will matter in the end is what I believe in.
  • MOVE UP. I am very content with being an entry-level employee and I hate extra responsibilities but I do know that I am not getting any younger. I’ll strive to get a promotion this year.
  • DE-TROLL. I love blogging and joining forum discussions but I am mostly a troll. I will lessen the harsh criticisms and try to be more constructive. >:)

.

I consider my New Year’s Resolution as just a guide but I will try my best to achieve each and every one. LoL!
