This should not go unblog-ED (if you know what I mean). So this incident happened recently, Yup! You heard and read it right. To cut the long story short I felt slightly rejected that by a comrade. I felt disappointed, disheartened, and near to tears that time. Thank God I could still muster some courage I have and pretended that nothing of serious intensity happened. I won’t elaborate more on the gory details. I just want to write down my thoughts, reflect on what happened, and assess myself after that mind-blowing incident.
You know the feeling of voluntarily doing something coupled with effort and time. And after everything it’ll be rejected because of some reason that you really have no idea of? (Because I was never told about it). I was focusing on the rejection that I’ve been thinking of so many irrational things (Things I would never enumerate here). And so after a couple weeks of UN-rejected moments, here I am again consumed by my melodramatic “ME” on the verge of tears. The rejection level was so severe that I wanted to just vanish in thin air or pretend to get sick so I could go home early. But unfortunately that was not me, so I decided to put on a happy face laughing my head off to conceal the real emotion overruling me that moment. I have no regrets, because I was doing it for God’s glory and I have no intentions of making such thing. I know it’s very light and I’m not exaggerating things here. I just wanted to blog the thing and besides I cannot hurt other people’s feelings because I’m not naming names. This is just something I wanted to read when another rejection recurs. You know, to help me cope with such feelings.
A friendly tip: Always accept rejection maturely.
It’s hard, embarrassing, mentally and emotionally shaking, and inevitable so better equip yourself with humility, an understanding heart, a calm reaction, and a strong faith. Because people will reject you at some point in your life, you just have to learn how to cope with such rejections. In essence, you would later learn that these instances have meaningful reasons. It may prepare you for a greater REJECTION to help you cope easily with it or God just wants you to feel that way because you ought to.
Things really happen for a reason, even the bad ones.
I’m not feeling any resentment now. I just thought that maybe, just maybe, one MAJOR MAJOR rejection moment will happen to me in the near future. It might blow me off and will tear me to shredded pieces. But now, I know more and I guess being mature enough to face these situations is being wise enough too. And I have no intentions of hiding grudges what-so-ever. The old “Me” would approve of that but heck no! I’m the new one now. The old “Me” just died recently.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
