Living on my own.

At seventeen, I was given the chance to live on my own, in a small boarding house that somewhat looked more of like a room. It was convenient though, with a small C.R. attached to it. And we'd have to pay 5000 pesos for rent. Not including my food and school allowances and the electricity plus the laundry and the water bill. I'd have to manage the money all by myself. And it was really something new to me.

It was an experience I would never forget. I stayed there for 5 1/2 long and lonely months. I was suffering from a terrible bout of the lonelies and misery, twas one of those days when 5 mins seemed like 5 hours. I got so depressed that I got indulged into shopping which got me broke. Living alone certainly has its challenges. For one, you clean up after your own mess. Two, there won't be anyone to rescue you from creepy insects. But then, living alone makes you discover things about yourself as well. Like, I'm such a messy person. I have little things cluttered all over my tables and the first time I got there. I was unpacking things and there were all kinds of stuffs lying around the floor. It was Crazy!!! Unlike at home, where there will be a housekeeper who would follow my mess. But it's far different from way over here. From the time you enter your room, the only voices you hear are the sounds you make. Knowing that you are alone, it makes you feel as miserable as ever.But I had to go through all that stint, for the sake of education.

It's not always easy to live on your own, but hey, how else will you know that living on our own rocks? Even if only for these reasons:

You can walk around with nothing but your birthday suit on.

You can turn the radio on at full blast.

You can go home at any time you want.

You get the freedom to go anywhere, anytime.

You can get as moody as you want and you don't have to explain why.

You get to test what you can do and your survival skills kick in and constantly challenged and well, alone.

But you all in all, you get to be a better person for it. Anew and fresh.

But it would probably be much better if you'd get a roomie whom you can trust though. someone like a soul-sister to you. That would be nice. Go get one!

Poems I love...

My True Love Hath My Heart, And I Have His


My true-love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange, one for the other giv'n.
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss;
There never was a better bargain driv'n.
His heart in me keeps me and him in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides;
He loves my heart, for once it was his own;
I cherish his, because in me it bides.
His heart his wound received from my sight:
My heart was wounded with his wounded heart;
For as from me, on him his hurt did light,
So still me thought in me his hurt did smart:
Both equal hurt, in this change sought our bliss:
My true love hath my heart and I have his.

Sir Philip Sidney

When first we met we did not guess

When first we met, we did not guess     That Love would prove so hard a master; Of more than common friendliness When first we met we did not guess. Who could foretell the sore distress,     This irretrievable disaster, When first we met? -- We did not guess     That Love would prove so hard a master.

The Beauty Of A Woman

Author: Ardem

The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears, The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair.   The beauty of a woman Must be seen from her eyes, Because that is the doorway to her heart, The place where love resides.  The beauty of a woman Is not a facial mole, But true beauty in a woman Is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring she lovingly gives, The Passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman with passing years -- only grows and grows.

Letters to juliet favorite lines. I mean BEST EVERR! seriously, it moved me to pondering. And by "IT" I meant the words.

My favorite lines from the movie "letters to juliet".. okay, so here it goes. Brace yourself! :)



'what' and 'if' are two words as non-threatening as can be but put them together side by side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. What if, What if, What if?... I don't know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love then its never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn't it be true now?You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don't know what a love like juliet feels like. A love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for, but I'd like to believe that if ever were to feel it that I'd have the courage to seize it. If you didn't, I hope someday you will..

My favorite pieces of Art.



I love eccentric paintings, I want them BIG! the ones that tell stories with lots of details...

I'm no artist, but I do appreciate art and its beauty, it truly amuses me.

here's some that I'd like to share...



"Primavera" by Sandro Boticelli

On the right side, the west wind Zephyr chases Chloris as he catches her she transforms

into Flora "the goddess of spring" and makes the ground to blossom from her embroidered

dress. In the center, Venus gestures the three graces (Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia

personified beauty and charm). They were popular subjects by artists who turned to classical

prototypes for inspirations. Mercury disturbs a cloud with his caduceus and Cupid flies above

the arch framing the central figure, suggesting that the overall theme may be love.



"Perseus Rescuing Andromeda" by Piero di Cosimo

Piero di Cosimo was a highly inventive artist, his life was as eccentric as his pictures. He hated fire so much that he was afraid to cook and lived on hard-boiled eggs preparing them 50 at a time while boiling his glue. He also refused to allow his rooms to be swept or his fruit trees to be pruned, more like a brute than a man.

he has represented several stages of a mythical narrative on this single panel. In the top right, Perseus flies through the sky to rescue Andromeda who is tied to a tree stump on the left - her mother had angered Neptune by declaring herself more beautiful than the nereids and she was about to be sacrificed to the sea monster. A moment later, Perseus landed on the back of the comical sea monster and starts to swipe at its neck. In the foreground, having slain the beast, Perseus marries Andromeda - the group on the right celebrates her liberation.
