Honestly, based on our past 3 outings, we could’ve given UZB a run for their money. Hell, we could’ve pulled yet another upset in Asian football. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t our day.
It’s Wednesday today. Admittedly, it feels like a Sunday… It feels like that awesome Sunday morning wherein you wake up hangover-free, the sun gleaming on your face, and for some fucked-up reason, you feel fully rested (even though you only had a terrible, terrible 2 hours of sleep).

I used to write pretty well. I could craft stories and write ‘em down as if I’m eating a bag of chips. It was easy for me. Surprisingly I think this stems from my love of film, television, music, and Wikipedia, as opposed to books or novels. I was never a big reader, I mean, I’m not an idiot, I can read. I just always chose a movie, or watching a gig, as opposed to staying in and reading a good book.
One of my most viewed post regarding the Azkals vs Dragon Boat Scandal. #ThrowbackThursday #Philippines
I know it’s been a while since I last wrote something substantial, and not useless on this thing. Believe it or not, that’s actually one of the reasons why I started this “blog”: I wanna write about something that is useful, opinionated, and not stupid. If you know me, then you know I say a lot of stupid things (jokes, crack-ups, false anecdotes, etc.). However, what substantial thing I always say, I leave for my writings.
So I guess you could say that this is one of them. This entry is about why I think we suck as a people. You may like it, or you may hate it… but the beauty of it is that I told you what this would be about, even before you read… so basically you have the option to not read it. So, there you go.

In a few months, I’ll be 27. That means, I’ll be in my late 20’s. A year or so after that, I’ll come up with another article describing shit I’ve learned/am learning in my late 20’s, but for now this will have to do. A lot of things have happened to me this past year, I’ve traveled, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve done good, I’ve disappointed a few people, and I’ve rise above some’s expectations of me. In a nut shell, it’s been a bat-shit insane year. But like any other turning point in one’s life, it’s always important to point out all of the random shit you’ve learned from it.
We spend a a third of our lives sleeping. That’s an average of about 230,000 hours in a lifetime. With society’s demands from our generation, are we really getting enough sleep?
But you see, it’s not about quantity of sleep or the number of hours we put in. It’s the quality. Research shows that even if you sleep for over 8 hours a night, it doesn’t necessarily translate to full sleep cycles required by our mind and body to fully rejuvinate. And I feel strongly that this is why we really need to invest in getting quality sleep. I don’t really see it as a luxury but more of a necessity. Yes, it takes over a hundred grand to score a Tempur® bed but it shouldn’t be less of a priority as getting quality sleep is a big step in life improvement.

We left for Real when the New Year was only 10 days and 20 hours old.
We arrived at 4:17, Saturday morning -would’ve probably gotten there sooner if “Ways” didn’t keep lying to us (Sterero siya!) Next time we’ll print out a map.
The cottage owners were still asleep (rental opens at 6am and closes at 10pm), so we found shelter in the form of a coconut hut while waiting for them and the sun to rise. Jim, Harry and Bea did the smart thing and took power naps. But Tommy and I were more interested in capturing images of the sky getting dressed. The boats watched with us.
All we wanted to do was watch the sky choose its colors for the day. But the local sky guardians mistook our intentions as perverse and went to investigate our actions. They came in the form of dogs, which made me…

1. Binge-watching the shows that you’re really embarrassed to love, but which you love more than you imagine you will love your own children some day.
2. Ordering a pizza with exactly the toppings you want, ecstatically counting down the minutes until the delivery man arrives, and reveling in the knowledge that you don’t have to share a single slice with anyone.
3. Proceeding to eat said pizza with the kind of abandon you only allow yourself when no one is there to watch/judge you.
4. Turning on your favorite music and spending a whole afternoon cleaning and re-organizing all your stuff to be exactly the way you want it, and getting all the satisfaction at the end of a job well done.
5. Going to a new city and spending the whole day walking around, just deciding where you want to eat for dinner that night. Looking in the…

Due to recent events, I’ve been very… contemplative. I’ve had a retarded amount of free time, and I’ve been spending them pretty wisely. It’s always good to have some time with yourself, to think, to discover new things that you have otherwise brushed off when you still saw yourself as a “group” person. For me, it was a bevy of things: From the mundane such as finding out I can actually finish an entire lapad of Tanduay by myself and thoroughly enjoy it, to the re-revalations such as finding out how much I love, and miss discovering new music from original artists (covers are great too, of course). But perhaps the most important thing I’ve uncovered during this “turbulent” time is the fact that shit don’t turn out the way you want it to because you weren’t prepared for that shit to happen.
