Month: May 2008
Yesterday, I was not able to come to work. I woke up late because I am feeling sick. Maybe it is because of the depression I had for our upcoming company outing.
For the past few days, I was formulating reasons and strategies to approach our boss and make me bring my brother along. And because of the tension and fear of being rejected, I did not have the guts to tell him my thoughts.
And so yesterday, my mind gave up and my body weakened in result. I felt so hopeless and sad that I can’t be in the outing.
Later, last night I had hope. I know myself for being optimistic and creative in finding means and I have thought of a plan that shed me some light.
I woke up this morning and came to work one hour earlier of my actual shift. I did my daily rituals while I wait for the big boss.
The clock ticks and I am starting to get nervous again. I am almost to quit my plan on talking to my boss when ate marian came and told me a good news.
“Uy, kasama ka na sa outing,” she said.
I was shocked and before I knew it, my heart is already jumping in joy. I can’t believe it. I’m in! 😀 Big boss finally decided to let my brother tag along. There are many employees who can’t come so he let me bring my bro.
Later before lunch, the final list of employees who are officially coming was posted. I browsed for name.
6. Imperial, Jhoy with her sister
hahaha… well, anyways, at least i’m officially in the list. Thanks god. 😉
This is a quote from ‘The Mexican’ starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.
when do you say enough is enough? To somebody you love so much, It is never.
Your body can get frustrated and your mind can get tired but your heart? Never. Despite vexations in your relationships, your heart keeps you holding on. You give way. You find means to understand.
In loving, you should learn a lot. It changes you. It should make you a better person. Love should guide you in the right side of the road.
When loving someone, you gain patience accompanied with faith. The stormy roads in a relationship should make you stronger. Loving should not be selfish both to your special someone but to yourself also.
I already knew where our company outing would be. It’s in the beautiful island of Capones Camara Islands in Zambales. Browsing through a multiply photo album, I could say, it really is a good destination. I can’t believe I am going to miss this great opportunity. *sigh 😦
Anyways, I grabbed some photos from lemjaylucas.multiply.com. See for yourself the great scenario of the island.

Our company will have its summer outing on June 8 & 9 in an Island in Zambales. I still don’t know where exactly are we going. It would be fun. I never missed a single outing held by the company ever since I became a part of it. Well, maybe this would be the first time.
It is only me and my sole brother who lives together. Our mom is in Thailand right now. There would be nobody left to care of him. He is only 12, technically, he’ll be 13 on June 9, and I am his sole guardian. I love him and I couldn’t afford to leave him alone for 2 days especially on that very day, his birthday.
I’ve asked our HR if i my bro could tag along. Sad to hear, but it can’t be done. The big boss has said that it would only be the spouses and children of those married employees. 😦
But, it’s fine. I have already arranged plans months before on how I would treat my brother in his special day. I’ll just keep it a secret for now.
Anyways, our HR is has been encouraging me to come but I am already decided. If I cannot be allowed to bring someone along, so it is. I don’t want to cause any trouble especially on those days.
Happy summer to everyone! 🙂
Here is an excerpt about love in harmony:
Symbiosis is the big special love where two beings come together in perfect harmony. They become one, living together, changing together, staying together for all time. This is different from any other kind of relationship. Love like this does not happen often. In a world full of predation, disease, parasitism, mutualism, commensalism, and stoic, uncaring loneliness, misunderstandings are more common than total understanding. But when it does happen it changes the whole world.
- They told me at the blood bank this might happen.
- This is just a 15 minute power nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to.
- Whew! Guess I left the top off the Wite-Out. You probably got here just in time!
- I wasn’t sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm.
- I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance.
- I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?
- Darn! Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem.
- The coffee machine is broken.
- Someone must’ve put decaf in the wrong pot.
- … in Jesus’ name. Amen.
