"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

bored and homesick

Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

today, i succumbed to boondoggling... again. i got bored and lost the heart to do things that need to be done, so i played with windoze paint. bad?

geez, heaven help me. i need recharging... badly. i want to go HOME.


home seems to be so far away now... expensive, too. a plane ride to singapore is way, way cheaper compared to any ride that would bring me back to my family and my home. how bad can it be, huh? how bad? add to that, this is the longest time that i've ever been away. i cannot go on deceiving myself that i'm still okay with this because no matter what, i still know that for every moment of happiness that i find here, really being home could make me feel so much more... sooooooooo much more... soooooooooooo much more. (much na, more pa.)

i can be happier there but i'm here. what else can i say, reality bites? yes, reality bites.

p.s. (1) iligan isn't that far from here, is it? (2) happy fiesta, iligan. welcome me back this october. *winks*


  1. those sure are nice ones. you have the talent. aren't you selling your works of art?

  2. babypink, tara na!

    my pop said he'll make me go home (i.e. shoulder my expenses)... yehooo!

    abaniko, uy, welcome back!

    nope, ayoko pagkaperahan... for me, some rewarding joy is lost pagka-ganun.
