a jar of #GoodVibes for #2014


Its that time of year again that you sit down and write a list of  your New Years Resolution.

I bet every year that list is getting shorter and shorter.  Why?  You simply cant follow the damn list anyway until your all too tired of writing the freakin’ do’s and dont’s and you find yourself snuggling that bottle of beer – frustrated and feeling awful for yourself.  “why am i an awful person…. oh why” – i bet you were asking that after 6 bottles of beer.  Don’t worry, i can relate!

One of my FB friends posted in her newsfeed a bottle of  Good Vibes.  She may have created this last year but i guess its an awful good idea in replacement of “Schindlers list”.  All you got to do is get that empty bottle and fill it up with small notes that may have happened to you during the day and at the end of the year, you get to open it up and literally “count your blessing”.  Take note: you would only include surprised gifts, accomplished goals, the beauty of nature, you “LOL” moments, memories worth saving and your daily blessings.  None of those “cry out” moments that you love to post on you FB status.

I have my own version in FB.  ill create an album for Good Vibes since i’m always online and i’m one of those kids who loves to post pictures.  But either way, it will still be the same end result – “count your blessings instead of the jumping sheeps who went over the fence of your homophobic neighbor … and i bet your ass that you’ll feel a lil bit lighter!!!

Share this post to your blogs and your friends.  “Pay it forward” as they say and get this “good vibes idea” go viral… just don’t forget to leave your comments on the box below on how you felt when you started this project!  Thanks and Happy New Year!

#2014: Year of the #Horse


 

Next week, we will all be greeting “hello 2014” and “goodbye 2013”.  And like any lads and lasses, we google our way to know thy fate for the coming year.  Since i was born in the “Year of the Horse”, here’s what i have read so far.  Thank you to http://www.travelchinaguide.com/intro/social_customs/zodiac/horse.htm

 

Fortune Foretelling in 2014

Overview: It is their order to encounter the Year of Birth (Benming Nian), a year to offend “Taisui’, the god in charge of people’s fortune. In 2014, their fortune in all aspects will be fluctuant which requires their great cares. They may stress out, in which case they are suggested to self-adjust by talking more to others or taking part in group activities. Upon any difficulties, they should be strong to overcome them all. If they treat people around friendly and behave righteously, they will smoothly get through the year.

Career: Horse people are easily offended this year even for trifles, and seem not to keep a harmonious relationship with colleagues. Sometimes they doubt themselves too much, gradually short of confidence. When finishing a task, they ask people around to confirm again and again. In this case, it is suggested to be confident and talk more to family instead of complaining to colleagues. Just keep a low profile, get along well with boss and be careful of tricks by mean people and then they will make some achievements in job.

Wealth: Their financial fortune will be unstable in 2014. It seems that there will be much unexpected cost. Thus to make ends meet comes first When managing money matters, they should consider accepting others’ suggestion. It is necessary to be careful to make any investment. Businesspeople should make a full scheme before making a large amount of investment, because the market will be changeable in the year.

Relationships: The fortune in love life for horse people will be just so-so. If they would like to get married in the year, it is strongly suggested to select an auspicious date according to the dates of birth of the bride and the bridegroom, or they will suffer a lot in marriage. Singles may meet several people that they have feelings for, but none of them are doomed to be their Mr./Ms. Right. If standing in dilemma, they’d better refer to the idea or suggestion of their relatives and friends. Husband and wife will argue a lot in the year, to avoid which communication and mutual understanding weighs. For all lovers, mutual trust is the secret for an everlasting relationship.

Health: As they offend “Taisui” this year, they may suffer some discomforts. Some insidious diseases like dermatosis may happen. To avoid that, they’d better have a full physical examination. Besides, they also need to be careful to avoid unexpected injuries by knives and others sharp items. Females should pay attention to problem in urinary system and males need to care more about their stomach. Adjusting their emotions and traveling outside will help with their health as well. They also need to remember not to eat too much for each meal.

An open letter of a #hopeless #romantic


dear cupid,

Its been a while since i last sent you a letter.  I may have been traumatized with the last guy you sent me.  Yup its true, its a whirlwind romance but he threw me in a loop and now i don’t know if ill ever recover.

I’m not choosy, just to lay my cards straight.  it just so happen that i’m trying to find a chemistry to the next fellow who sends SMS / IM or message but the pizzas is simply not there.  Plus, im bottom and i’m trying to find the next eligible TOP but they are too low in numbers.  Some pretend they are TOP but low and behold – lies of all lies, they are “FREAKINLY BOTTOM”.  I don’t think that we can spell “happy ever after” if we both were looking for TOP.  I guess this house can only accommodate ONE BOTTOM and that’s me.

true… i admit Mr. Cupid.  IM AFRAID!

my friends often wonder, why?

there’s no harm being single.  as for me, the last time i had a serious relationship was… ( thinking… i forgot na).  Just like what Jack of Will and Grace often said “if you have to think for at least 3 seconds then that’s too long ago”

admittedly… i am terrified.  I hate the fact of opening myself to another person and he wont reciprocate my feelings.  I’m horrified of the things i’m about to feel and at the end of the line – he will end up leaving me just like my last serious relationship.  I’m mortified by the fact that i am not good enough; not well endowed enough; not hunkier  that the other guy in PR or gorgeous than that fellow in Facebook.

honestly, i don’t know how to choose the right guy.  I just let destiny fill in the gap but i don’t think that she is helping me as well.

I just hoped that he would start knocking on my door … uttering “hey just saw you downstairs, i just cant help but wonder if i can get you number…”

But then again, this is the Philippines and i’mnot living in Florida or San Francisco where gays are far more forward with their feelings.  Am i doomed Mr. Cupid… or will i just take care of 9 cats and play solitaire till i finally close my eyes … FOREVER.

Mortified and horrified with my future… but i guess, i would be the last single gay guy in Valenzuela.

Yours truly,

AJ
