I could not remember the reason why I wrote this article below with a title that says  “A Different Kind Of High”. I discovered this just today while I was browsing through the draft section of my blog. I’ve got tons of unpublished articles written months and even years ago. Some of these articles are unfinished, some are nonsense, some are too personal, and others are the result of my emotions at that very moment which I need to express in writing. As what Lord Byron said, “If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.”

==========================================================================

A DIFFERENT KIND OF HIGH

I’m wide awake and I’m high. I get sick and tired and yet I’m high. I sit still and I am still high. What kind of high is this which drowns me deeper into an ocean of thoughts? These thoughts are way too overwhelming that throws me further into thinking deeper– some are unexplained, some are brought about my past, and mostly brought about by the present events that occur in my life. And that even while I am speaking my mind right at this moment, my thoughts are running crazy. I can barely put the exact words I need and want to say.

I am high on thoughts all the time and it gives me a different kind of high. It’s in my mind and it’s within my system. How do I get rid of this high? I am completely overdosed and I pretty much sigh.

My Little Bundle Of Happiness

Leave a comment

I know it has been a while since I last visited this site–my blog. Let’s just say that I have been preoccupied with stuff like work and motherhood. And speaking of motherhood, I now have my second baby. In fact, he will be turning 11 months this coming November 4, and in less than 2 months, he will be celebrating his 1st birthday. I don’t know exactly what to do on his 1st birthday. I don’t have any plans laid yet and I feel that there is just little time left for the planning and preparations. But I know I can pull it off, hopefully. A simple celebration will do as long as there are cakes and balloons, and something to eat.

Anyway, setting aside the worries of planning and hosting a kiddie birthday party, I  am pretty much not so excited about seeing my baby grow up so fast right before my very eyes. I feel that it was just so recently that he has learned to turn and lie on his tummy, and now he is starting to learn how to stand on his own. And soon, he will already start walking and running.

However, I never thought that I’ll be having a second child after 11 years. Honestly, I was only looking forward to having one kid, but maybe having a second child was meant to be. And why can’t I be happy and proud about it when having a baby at home brings so much joy in the family. My baby Kent is the apple of our eyes and the little bundle of happiness. And of course, Kurt, my eldest, loves his little brother so much, and Kent loves him more just by looking how his eyes sparkle with joy every time he plays with his “kuya”.

Music, Voice, and Emotions…

Leave a comment

 

Two of the most talented singers and songwriters whose songs I listen to over and over again are Regina Spektor and James Blunt. Regina’s compositions are simply extraordinary and unconventional. The lyrics of her songs are products of her imagination and creativity. Sometimes, you need to understand what she’s trying to convey through her songs because it’s filled with metaphors. For me, she’s a genius. I love all of her songs, but of course, there are those songs which I listen to most of the time. First on the list is SAMSON. The first time I heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it. Another fave of mine are EET, FIDELITY, and US.

“Samson”

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hairwas long when we first metSamson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even onceYou are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

And of course, another favorite song-writer of mine is James Blunt. If you listen to him sing, you will really feel the emotions being poured out through his songs. His lyrics touches your heart and his voice captivates your soul, and that’s how I describe my mood every time I listen to his music. Sometimes, I can’t help but play the same song over and over again before I shift to another song.


Here are my top 3 favorite songs by James Blunt:

1. Goodbye my Lover

2. You’re Beautiful

3. Same Mistake

So, hope you’ll also enjoy and love their songs like I do. I really think they are amazing singers and songwriters.

 

Kurt Turns 8 Today!

Leave a comment

It’s my son’s 8th birthday today and the best gift ever is that he is already feeling well. Just few days ago, he was high with fever. His temperature almost reached 39 degrees Celsius. I even suspected him of having dengue so I had him checked by a doctor, and had his blood tested for CBC platelet count. It was a relief that the result turned negative for dengue.

Funny how my son blames me for his sickness because I didn’t allow him to bring his jacket to school the other day. Kurt always tells me that he feels cold when he is inside the classroom because of the air-condition.  So it’s my fault then that he got sick for not letting him bring his jacket to school? hahaha…oh my!

It’s amazing how time goes by quickly. My son is now 8 years old and I am turning old too? Geeee! Last week, before Kurt got sick, I planned that we will just dine out and maybe go swimming in the pool to celebrate Kurt’s birthday–good timing because his birthday falls on a Saturday. However, since he just got well, I think that there’s a slight change of plan or I better ask Kurty what he wants. For sure, if  i’ll ask him what he wants, he’ll surely say TOYS!

Happy Birthday Kurty!!!

You Make Me Smile…

There is something about the song “You Make Me Smile” by Uncle Kracker that makes me feel good every time I play it on Youtube. It’s like I instantly think of certain people and things that give me reasons to wear a smile on my face.

Perhaps, people who are very much inlove  can relate well to this song. This is the kind of song that makes you want to stay happy and inlove all the time. The lyrics are simple yet it captivates the heart. Do you have that special someone in your life right now who makes you smile? And simply being able to see that person or just to be near  that special someone in your life is already enough to brighten up your day.

I hope you too will find this song cool and captivating. Stay Happily Inlove!!!

Here’s the lyrics of this song “You Make Me Smile” by Uncle Kracker:

You’re better then the best
I’m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that’s right
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me,
Lets me know that it’s ok, yeah it’s ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

Even when you’re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

Don’t know how I lived without you
Cuz everytime that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

Authors Are My Rock Stars

Leave a comment

It has been a while since I last had the time, the energy, and the inspiration to consume my thoughts into blogging.  I guess I have indulged myself too much on thinking too much–hmm?…whatever that supposed to mean. And every time I try to blog about something, my thoughts become disorganized. I can hardly pick the right words to say or I can’t even make my sentences collaborate with what my thoughts are telling me to say.

Yesterday, I happened to come across a movie entitled “The Raven” starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe. “The Raven” is a fictional story about the life of Edgar Allan Poe, and his quest in finding the serial killer who patterns after his murderous intent from the stories which Poe writes. As soon as I finished the movie, I suddenly remember the poem entitled “Anabel lee”, which was written by Edgar Allan Poe. I had memorized this poem long time ago when our English teacher asked us to memorize it by heart for the graded recitation. It’s funny now that all I could remember from this poem are the words “kingdom by the sea”.

I tried to search more about E.A. Poe, and I found some very interesting quotes written by him. I somehow reflected and thought about blogging, which I haven’t done for a while. And while I was browsing, I happened to see this image:

Authors are my rock stars

I agree 100% with what the words on the shirt says–“Authors are my rock stars”. A bunch of talented authors of poems, stories, novels, articles, etc inspires many of us in so many ways through their magnificent words. Well, obviously, this had led me to get into my blogging mood.

Raining On A late Saturday Evening

Leave a comment

As I sit here, I see the flash of lightning emanating from the sky, clearly visible from my open window. I hear the loud sound of thunder and the splash of rain pouring directly to the ground–a music to the ear that only nature can orchestrate.

I wonder why every time it rains I always think of several things like drinking a hot cup of coffee, singing and dancing in the rain or perhaps ‘do my crying in the rain’ as the famous line suggests in a song entitled “I’ll do my crying in the rain.”

Most of us associate rain with something such as experiences–either good or bad, love, life, sorrows, luck, and even romantic moments.

Oh well, the rain is slowing drifting away, I guess. The sky is once again in silence as the growling sound of thunder fades to nowhere.
