Three Quarters of Doom . . .

This year has been the most difficult because life had been throwing stones at me. Everyday is like Doom’s Day. I am actually surprised that my sanity is intact despite all these.

People tell me that this is my karma for trolling. I, however, don’t think of it that way. Karma happens in another life. Hey, I’m far from dead!

The way I see it: my Yin-Yang was acting up… or maybe some psychotic paranormal being or a retard with super powers became bored and toyed with me.

Who knows?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

“In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat.” --- Robert Byrne

Cheating — may it be on exams, dieting, lovelife, career, etc — is always wrong in a number of levels and it has become my main regret. I am just so glad that I was able to stop my cravings before it was too late.

The Levels of Cheating . . .

“In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat.” --- Robert Byrne

I admit that I cheated and I have learned from it. I am also thankful that Dada was there to support me despite my weak resolve. He explained to me that the gravity of cheating varies — so does the punishment. I couldn’t describe it more so I just thought of putting our conversation about it. (not the exact words but the gist is the same)

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.”™

幸せ 。 。 。

お爺さんの 忠告。。。

There are instances when I feel upset while playing pRO. Whenever that happens, I always go to Amatsu.

Amatsu is my favorite map because it resembles Japan and I can find here some of the nicest NPCs and scenery. There’s a large Sakura tree where lovers carve their oaths; a large castle that houses the Miyabi Ningyo; a unique weaponry shop for Ninjas; a bugged teleport spot; and, there’s Grandpa-Jyaburo who is just on the other side of the river.

Jyaburo is my favorite NPC in the entire world of Midgard. He speaks of valuing love, life and happiness. I nearly cry every time I talk to him.
