#31. Father

My father is probably the most paranoid person I have come to know in this lifetime. His imagination is so wild that it becomes difficult to make sense of what he wants  to convey. Most of the time, his paranoia is so compelling that we would just want to drop any activity we would like to engage in. 

Our house feels like a garrison with too many padlocks here and there. Each of our bedrooms have peep holes installed, and part of opening a door would mean looking through the peep hole each and every time. There are also some doors with locks outside, particularly the bathroom, so in case a burglar comes in through the bathroom, he cannot advance further in house. These outside locks must be locked every night.

#30. SET and The Potential Rapist

Way back in February, I decided to join RITM-ARG's Self Empowerment Training seminar, dubbed as the SET. Honestly, I was thinking if I still needed this because I was already managing myself well. And since I wasn't really doing anything productive, I decided to join the last batch, thinking that the last batch would probably have less participants, and I would be more comfortable with a smaller group.

I arrived at the venue 4 minutes late. I was so anxious and kind of scared that I might stumble across someone in my social circle. I was so anxious that when I went up to the room, I got so dizzy and nauseous that I almost consumed an entire Tic-tac box. A few minutes later, I gave in. Sumuka na ang lola niyo sa banyo sa ibaba.

#29. William

To be honest, I've lost track of how many times this has happened: I explore the world with something else in mind, then I meet someone who happens to like me as well, all classified under "extra-marital status". I've always thought that the disease would tremendously change the face of the game, but it appears it has not. In fact, I'd like to believe that I have actually tapped a market that was once untouched, further offering variety and assortment. 

I met you through a friend, Dominique. We were introduced about some weeks and weeks ago before I wrote this one. I don't even remember what your name was, and to be honest, I didn't bother asking you or her again for your name. All I remember was I asked you about a piece of gadget that you wanted to replace, and that was it.

#28. Happy 3rd Anniversary

Ours wasn't perfect, no one's is, after all. But I believe ours is the best I've ever had. And for this "best", I'd like to thank you for sticking it out with me through thick and thin, in sickness, indeed, and in health, and for my richer and poorer days.

We may not be together on this special day but I know you know how much I love you, treasure you and thank you for keeping me happy for the past 3 years of my life.

It's all beyond words, happy 3rd Anniversary to us, my love.

#27. One of Those Pesky Text Blasts

Ever since I got my postpaid line, I've been receiving pesky text marketing messages.

For I was feeling really bitchy earlier:

Pinatulan ko talaga.

#26. A Conversation With An Old Flame

Brief background:

The year was 2011. We met  at the time you were already in a relationship with someone for almost two years already. I was already taken as well, (til now.) The first time I saw you, I just fell in love. Your striking Japanese breed was simply irresistible and you had a very attractive built. Those melancholic eyes always spoke more than what you would verbally indicate.

As expected, we had all the romance in between. And I must say, It was one of the toughest, most intense and heartbreaking situations ever. Literally, all we had were a few stolen moments. Usually very brief, yet very sweet.

You were the first guy to ever give me a kiss in public.

Realizing that the romance was doomed to failure, I abruptly cut the communication with you, until late last year.

And then two nights ago, we had this conversation:

#25. Epiphanies 3: My Self's Posterity

I wouldn't say that I'm unfortunate but I would like to believe that my life is a product of so many bad choices I've made.

#24. Epiphanies 2: Candy Crush

This Candy Crush Saga game has taken over my life for the past 4 days. I've spent some nearly sleepless night trying to win myself over to the next level. As I reached level 170+, things have started to feel differently.
