  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

Trish

Do you think you can send them MY way? Haha.. chat soon!

buns

ate,

don't siblings come first...but u will have to send them to the east coast :-D

ana5678

I knew it! Hence the thing with Nico in the CAT uniform backstage :-D

Gigi

Trish and Buns - Since you're both in the East Coast I guess I'm sending them in the same direction. Mag-unahan nalang kayo. :)

ana5678 - And I got Nics tongue-tied, too!!! :)

cathy

gigi! yes, the men in uniform, specifically from Southern CA are so gorgeous! maloka ang co-workers mo diba? glad to see you are learning so much from where you are. meanwhile, just wanted to let you know that after a year's break, i may go back into the work world again. more chika soon.

Gigi

Cathy - I happened to catch ER last night and towards the end there was a scene wherein four gorgeous firemen walk towards the registration table (slow mo pa for maximum hunka-hunka effect!). If you ever catch that episode...THAT'S what it was like!!!

Uy, we need to catch up talaga. Let me know what you're up to -- and best of luck! :)

K

Off topic: Gigi, I couldn't leave a message the other day (and I hope this one would go through) as my browsers has prompted a script's running somewhere and I can't find what it is.

Anyway, did the men in uniform buy anything?

sistah #1

men in uniform? try running the LA marathon (or any other big-city marathon, for that matter); there are firemen up and down the course watching out for downed runners. all you have to do is slow down when you see their trucks, stop to catch your breath when you get to them, then strike up a conversation. you can even ask to get your picture taken with them and they'll gladly oblige! :)

of course, there's also the marine corps marathon in DC where marines assist with everything, including placing your medal around your neck at the finish line. and i'm sure they've all gotten more than their fair share of hugs from appreciative women...

Gigi

K - Yes, they did. But I was too distracted to notice what. :)

Sistah - I guess there goes one more incentive for me to shoot for running a marathon. My taste in men veers more towards geeks and artsy types, VS our men in uniform. Oh well...
