Weekly Reflection. Give and Take. Week #8

April 30, 2012 § 4 Comments

Where has my mind gone? I forgot my weekly reflection yesterday. Too busy going during my writings :D

Well, no use for excuses, but I’m making that up today. This week is real slow. I can probably guess the reason why. I simply have no time to do my usual posts at certain time and I haven’t been able to read many blog posts. In term of connections, we all have to do the give and take, so I do make sure that I drop by my regular bloggers that often visits me.

Without further ado:

Well, you guys have been very active with the commenting so far. That’s a plus. Always love a good comment. Makes this blog a bit livelier than the many stalkers and spammers that do a hit and run :D

Until next week with my reflection.

I’m very impressed by people that have a clear direction on where they are going and stop at nothing on the way to get there. Unlike those people, I am the actual opposite. I like the journey rather than having a narrow focus on the end destination. Hence the problem I have in my life. I am still unclear as to what I am supposed to do to find some fulfillment in my life. But is it ok if I enjoy the stage where I am at for the moment?

Who really knows what they are supposed to be or do in life? Do you wish it so hard that the universe open up a path for you? Or people just stumble upon many things and decided that this is the best for them? Tough questions. If only I knew the answers, I would imagine my life to be simpler. How many of you out there are satisfied with what you do now and if you had a chance to start over, which journey would you embark on?

For myself, I am about to go to another state. Let’s call it exploration. I might have no web connectivity once again. But I think that this is necessary for me to broaden my horizon. It is just so difficult to leave the comfort zone. They say a journey of a thousand miles all started with one step. I shall believe this and have faith in where my life is going to lead me.

I will try my best to get online. And for the days that I couldn’t, I will write a blog offline to continue my post-per-day.

Thanks for reading.

Money down the drain

My sister lost her Iphone over this weekend. She was scared that I get mad because I paid for that phone. I’m pretty disappointed but on the other hand, I have this feeling that some lucky person just had their Christmas came early. I don’t know what it is, but I rather have that phone destroyed than knowing that someone was dishonest enough to not return it. Would you return a 500 dollar phone if you were to find it?

My sister keeps skyping me to say sorry. I’m pretty sure it was an honest mistake, but it sure was an expensive one. She’s on her way home this Saturday. Her trip usually takes 6-8 hours from school. And the thought of going long distance without a cell phone nowadays is difficult. I wonder how we survived back in the days.

I don’t know how most people remember their belongings. It must be way different for girls and guys too because it seems ladies misplace more things than guys. Us guys, we have pockets and we only carry a few items that go into our pockets pretty easy. For example, if I were to leave home, my phone would be in my right front pocket while my dollar bills would be in my left front pocket with my keys. My wallet would be in the back right pocket and any miscellaneous papers that I need would go in my left back pocket. This has been a habit that I have developed way back and it never fail. Whatever item I take out, it is placed in the same spot when it goes back in. Therefore, I have never misplaced my keys or phone, ever. How do you usually place your items so you remember where they are?

Anyways, we will not be seeing my sister’s Iphone again. I’m just glad that it is not anything more worrisome coming from a girl in college.

All I’m doing is working to support my habits but I have not been able to do anything to feed my soul. Felt so discourage from doing things I like because of words like “responsibility” and “obligations”.

How do people solve things like this? I guess everyone needs to compromise one way or the other. Simply can’t have your cake and eat it too. But damn it! I want to eat it, TOO!

I got home late today and usually, I have something up on my blog a few hours ago. But I guess it is never too late to muster something from my tired brain to write something. If not to say something clever (as if I ever was), I would like to say “hello” to anyone that reads.

From my line of work, I get to say hello to people all day long. It doesn’t mean much. But in this case where I’m sitting on my computer during midnight to say “hey guys”, it is similar to someone that sits by their computer waiting for me to post something so they can read. How awesome is that?

I need sleeeeppp. *off to bed*

Where can I purchase more hours in a day?

I find myself to have less and less time to get on to read blog and to blog myself. Things has become a little bit more hectic in my life. For the better or worse, I don’t know yet. So if you see me with quotes, chances are, I have no time to develope any posts, so these are my substitutes :D

Thank you for reading. Comments are awesome. Leave me one.

My Thoughts

April 23, 2012 § 4 Comments

I don’t think people are bad. I just think that people makes bad choices. When on the topic of people, I have a difficult time talking with people who thinks in black and white.

I ask the question, “Is stealing bad?” People’s usual response is “Yes”, but they should have wait and think a little and say, “it depends.”

This is a matter of how open-minded you are. If you have grown up to have all your basic needs met, then you wouldn’t hesitate to say that ethically, stealing is bad. But if you have experiences hardship in term of survival, you would understand that it all depends on the situation.

Stealing for your own selfish motive are bad. But if you had starving children that needs food, and if you’re desperate enough, stealing is a mean to an end. I’m not saying it is wrong or right, but rather, justified or not.

Laws are in place to keep order. But there are so many complex issues that can not be solved by referring to a law for resolution. Plus, laws are made by man, so if a law does not serve its purpose to be just, then it should be change.

“Is killing bad?”

“Yes!”

“What if it is done in self-defense?”

“It depends, what was the situation in the killing?”

Unfortunately, we do not have everything together all the time to understand the “situation”, therefore we go with whatever we have available. That is granted, but the injustice within our societies goes further than the lack of knowledge, but rather the compassion to walk in another person’s shoes.
