Women & Hate

Why must we hate each other? Why must we feel the need to envy one another? Is it because she’s more beautiful? Has beautiful hair? Has a perfect body? Has more expensive things? Has more friends?

I’ve read so many articles about women empowerment & how we’re supposed to come as one & build each other up. Instead, we’re too busy posting half naked photos for the sole purpose of getting as many “likes” and too busy showing off what we’ve got, making other women feel insecure.

Of course, I’m not against celebrating ones accomplishments and I do understand that some of us celebrate by taking photos and showing the “haters” how happy we are.

I’m more talking about women hating other women for the simplest reasons. I often hear, “I hate her cause she’s too much!” Too much what? Too much of what you’re not?

Ladies, stop hating! You gain nothing from it and it certainly doesn’t help pay your bills.

Forever in the Friend Zone

There’s nothing hurts more than knowing that the person you desire the most will never have the same feelings as you. Nothing hurts more than knowing that no matter how much you pour your love into that person, they will never appreciate it.

This is my current situation. I desire someone who’s oblivious of my existence. This someone no matter what I do to show my admiration never recognizes it. This person sees me only as a friend. I can’t handle the pain.

Yes, I have thought over and over again to tell this person how I feel, but I always back out. The risk is too great and I don’t want to lose another friend over a mistaken assumption.

Forever in the friend zone I’ll be until I pack the courage to say how I feel.

Fury Film

Went to see the film Fury today. And let me just say, I was sandwiched between young men in service (I could tell because of their hair cut and tag necklace) and older generation whom I assume have served this country with great honor and respect.

What an incredible movie! Of course, I’m not gonna spill the details nor will I tell you the movie plot. (We have IMDB for that)

Soldiers risking their lives for their country is no joke. I don’t know why the men and women does it, but I sure have an undeniable respect for them.

WWI and WWII was and always will be memorable, not because of the damage it has done, but because of the many lives that was lost, and some sacrificed.

This movie opened eyes to the young generation today even though they “learn” this stuff in school, its also not bad to see what they went through.

Whatever drove Hitler to have his followers kill the Jews, I don’t know. But I do know this and so as the fallen heroes, he was a coward!
Overall, great cast and their chemistry was undeniably close.

Go see this movie if haven’t already.

The Internet

The Internet is my world right now. It’s the only thing I know. It allows me to escape the harsh reality. Forget social media. Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Facebook, and more. For me, the internet is like a book. Every time I need to know about a word or a place, I look it up and read the information on the web. And also forget “I’m gonna Google that”. I make sure the sources I’m reading is legitimate¬† and credible. Besides music, the internet also allows you to avoid awkward situations.
If only I had a smartphone when I was in highschool. I would have cheated on everything.

Self Evaluation and Time

It’s Monday and I’m miraculously awake at 5 am. Filling up my cup of Joe and checking emails at my home office-home office meaning in my pj’s and still in my bed.

I had a great weekend, not that anyone else cares. It was the best one yet. At least I didn’t mope around the house doing endless chores. I actually went out and did something I haven’t done in what feels like FOREVER. I went to the movies. Went to see Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer and Ben Affleck’s Gone Girl. Both critically acclaimed movies which I both enjoyed. Did some shopping also. I’m slowly realizing that self evaluation is important to every busy person living in this planet. All we do is work, take care of our families, work, pay bills, and at the end of each day we crash in our beds and do it all again the next day. What a dull life!

Self evaluation means pampering yourself and I’m glad I did. Now, I’m left with a whole new level of chores since I didn’t get anything done this weekend.

I’m happy to say I don’t regret anything. Time is always moving and when it gets away from you, you have to make adjustments which causes the “butterfly effect”.

Go out there and spend quality time with YOU if you haven’t already. We all gotta work hard in this life, but never forget to play even harder.

Life at twenty-five

Being twenty-five with no kids is the new “cool” today. No responsibilities and one’s freedom is limitless. It gives me great pleasure to say that I am twenty-five with no children, no responsibilities, and with limitless freedom. But why doesn’t it seem satisfying to me? Why do I feel like something else is missing?
Most of my friends are around the same age as I am and although I clearly remember them vowing to the Gods that they won’t have children until they’re financially stable, some of them have children anyways.
I guess life isn’t as fulfilling as I thought it would be being single.
I guess having a partner and a baby would “complete” every woman on earth.
Does it?

Family, Friends, and Work

Its never easy for me to confide my problems to you guys, but I find it difficult to open up to a family member or a friend since they know me so well. I find it so easy to open up to someone I barely know and I know exactly why. Its because I don’t want my family or friends to judge me. Its like after opening up to them all they’re going to talk to me about the next time we see each other is my problems.

My family and I have the same circle of friends both in and out of work. There’s nothing wrong with this picture. Completely normal and relatable. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always have a positive outcome.

Take my brother’s trip for example. He secretly went camping with one of our close friend (a woman, of course). When I said “secretly” I meant he didn’t tell any of his family and friends that he will be going out of town for a few days. So did she. But family members and friends (who couldn’t keep their abnormally large nose out of people’s business) snooped around and found out. Exchange of harsh words were said and feelings were hurt.  

I don’t want to start my life over and make new friends. I just wished people mind their own business more and kept their mouth shut.
