Yeehayy. Say hello to the County’s new Systems Software Engineer. Four years ago you were just an IT intern turned IS analyst ,  and now look where you’re at. Hardwork pays off!  I’m soo excited for you. It’s only been a little over a week of being 26. I told you it won’t be that bad. To be honest, 26 looks great on you Beb! 😍

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Working hard to finally explore. It’s been way too long. I love to explore little parts of CA but that’s not the same!

And the seasons
Will change us new
But you’re the best I’ve known
and you know me
I could not be stuck on you
If it weren’t true

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.

LATE POST.

May 22, 2015.

My puppy Snoop joined Marley in a field somewhere in the sky. As much as it hurts me, I try to stay positive that he is in a better place.

Eversince Marley passed away. Snoop’s age caught up to him a hundred times faster and I was the one trying to slow it down because who wants to prepare for it anyway? Snoop started to lose hair, weight, unable to hold   himself up or some of his contents. It broke my heart, especially last month. Every day, I give him vitamins. There was one day where he couldn’t get up to greet me at the sliding room door… crying. Every day after work, I would go out there. Walk over, help him up until he could stand, do a couple of fetches and give him some vitamins and pandesal/rice. I started to consult my Kuya and Vet because at this point, I didn’t know what to do anymore. We started giving him Aspirin and he started to stand on his own again. It looked promising that he was going to get better. He would always greet me like his usual self and stay whenever I was at the door. He was a fighter.

The last time I saw him. I remember I gave him his medications. I do my usual pet routine and squeeze his face, rub his chest and tell him that “he’s such a good boy”. I was going to leave for Crossfit and I told him “Okay Noop Noop I gotta go! Be a good boy. Outside time” But he didn’t want to leave the door. So, my ninang said she’ll wipe his face and I remember looking at him with his usual kawawa face and he watched me leave. Ninang told me he wouldn’t leave the door when I left.

The next day, I was unusually exhausted from work. I came home and thought I’ll just give him his medications in the afternoon. I slept and woke up and went to the backyard. I opened the door… 

"Okay Noop Noop…. I have your meds! (opens door/no response). I know you hear me. I am coming out you weirdo. Snoop!"

I step out and Snoop wasn’t in his normal spot. MY HEART literally dropped and I knew instantly something was wrong. I walked to the other side to where he might be and he wasn’t there. I yelled for my mom. Thinking they went behind my back to put him to sleep. We had this discussion numerous of times and it would lead to a big argument. My mom insisted that he was there. I said “No!”. So, I am freaking out and  ran around looking for him. I told my mom, “No, he’s not here!”.  My mom starts calling my dad.

I remember walking one more time and looked down at this really random small spot in my backyard that has no concrete. I found him there… sleeping. I literally started to ball because I knew.

I just missed him. I feel soo guilty. My dad said he found him there this morning and he didn’t want to move. My dad tried to carry him out but Snoop got mad at my dad (which is really unlike him). My Dad didn’t want to tell me because he knew I was exhausted from work. 

I feel a sense of uneasiness. Unlike Marley, I was not by his side. However, Romel always tells me that whenever he thinks of Snoop it’s always good memories. I do too. It’s just there are sometimes when I see certain areas in the backyard and it’s hard. Or when I eat Pizza and leave the crust because I always sneak it to him. 

I miss Snoop, but I am glad he is in a better place with his best friend. 

The Bucket List

Two Years ago I created this Tumblr to document my bucket list. I still need to put some pictures in to show that I did some stuff though. I’m not going to lie. I kind of abandoned this website ever since I was trying to find the right layout.

Two years ago. I pictured my life to be different. I would of moved out and been on my own because ever since I was in High School that is what I wanted to do. I wanted to live in an apartment in SF and traveled to more places because I have a heart of a gypsy rather than a princess. 

Sometimes life gives you choices. I chose to be at home with my family and puppies because quite frankly, I understand that life can take an unexpected turn. I know that my family (and Snoop) needs me.  Even if I’m tired, I make time to spend time and have a conversation with them regarding things that they may not understand.  Surprise them with random adventures. Buy/cook them food. Do a WOD with them. Help pay the bills not because I am forced to. It is my choice. They blessed me with a great life and I believe they deserve the best.

I never imagined to be engaged at this this point. I am happy to say I knocked off some stuff on this list and I still got me a Fiance that still supports me and my dreams in life. When I don’t have the energy after work, he helps me help my family. I am BEYOND blessed for him and the foundation we have. I guess number 9 is coming sooner than I thought and I am beyond excited. (:

Thinking about my upcoming plans, 2015 looks like I’ll be knocking a lot of my list. This year is dedicated to working hard so I can play hard in 2015. When September comes, I am going to make my Quarter of a century count.
