On commitment

But think about this. Deepening intimacy without defining a level of commitment is dangerous. It's like going mountain climbing with a partner who isn't sure she wants responsibility of holding your rope. When you've climbed two thousand feet up a mountain face, you don't want to have a conversation about how she feels "tied down" by your relationship. In the same way, many people experience deep hurt when they open themselves up emotionally and physically only to be abandoned by someone who proclaims he's not ready for a "serious commitment".
-Joshua Harris, I Kissed Dating Goodbye
I swear, every word in this paragraph helped me understand about the importance of commitment  in every relationship. No one wants to be abandoned and left out especially when much has been invested in the relationship. Committing without thinking and reflecting properly can only result to hurting yourself, the other person or both parties. That's inevitable.  
Put into simple terms, committing to someone is a big risk. You have to expect every possibility how you're relationship will turn out. Then comes, enduring all of it. The moment you signed up for it, there is no turning back. You already gambled on it. It will be great if you win, but what if you don't?  There's always two sides of the coin, remember? :)

First Morning 2010

Today, December 16, is the first morning of the Misa de Gallo (Rooster's Mass). It is one of the customs in the Philippines that being practiced for centuries.

This is my 8th year of attending the Misa de Gallo and I'm proud of it! For the first time, in 8 long years, I didn't attend mass in our parish, San Nicolas de Tolentino. Instead, I went to Redemptorist Church near Mango. We usually go there every Sundays with my family so the place isn't foreign to me. Their mass starts at five in the morning which is a bit late compared to other parishes that starts their mass at 4:30 am.

I was accompanied with my friend, Lyndon. He said it was his first morning mass but I doubt it. Haha. Since he arrived a bit late, we settled near the front door of the church. We were standing the whole time and fighting very hard not to sleep but instead be participative during the mass.. and we succeeded! (I guess.) :))

After the mass, we walked to Jollibee (Raintree Mall) to have breakfast. I had pancakes and he had a hotdog breakfast meal.  I lost my appetite after a few bites with the pancakes so he ended up eating it. Wahahaha.

Walked across Robinson's to wait for my jeep then we parted ways. I went home to change and get ready for work and I'm pretty sure he is now sleeping as I type this... :P

// Waking up early in the morning is not your thing. And you barely had two hours of sleep but still you went with me to church today.. So, for that, THANK YOU! :)

A few months back, a friend of mine tagged me on a note in Facebook about "50 things you probably don't know about me".

You Become Your Own Self

I'm turning 21 in six days. Wooot~!

Back when I was still a kid, I calculate years and imagine myself what will I become by then. If I remember it right, I thought that I am out of college and now working as a nurse or a teacher. I wanted to be a nurse before like my Auntie who lives in the States and a teacher like my Mom. I might also have a boyfriend by this time.

But as you can see, neither of the things I thought when I was a child happened. I am still in College. I am not taking up Nursing nor Education. And lastly, I am single. The old me might be disappointed by now but I'm happy on how things turned out.  It's funny when you're young and what you wanted was to pattern your life to someone else's; it might be one of your family members or other people who you look up to. But when you grow up and mature, you make your own decisions/choices and slowly you become your own self.
