I turned 36 last August 3rd. I actually don’t feel any different. I still feel the same. I am the same person as I was when I turned 18.
Since my birthday fell on a Sunday, we scheduled to hear mass together. My dad, my siblings, my sister-in-law, and my nephew all went to church and then we went to the mall to have lunch. It was an ordinary day for us except that we spent a little bit more than we usually do. My sister bought a cake for me. At night, we ate some more birthday specials. It was nothing extraordinary but I am still grateful because, firstly, I was allowed to turn another year older. Secondly, we have enough to spend for the food we ate. And, lastly, I was able to celebrate my 36th birthday with my family. It’s more than enough for me!
Well, now that I am 36, things are a bit more clearer for me. Life has become more glaring. Everything is now more real than it was when I was in my 20′s, that’s for sure!
My life is a mixture of ups and downs just like any other person out there. Truth is, there were more downs than ups, especially when my brother and my mom died. Still, life has been good to me. I have so many regrets regarding friends, work, and even the career I chose but I am happy and I think that’s what matters at the end of the day, right?
I am happy. I am keeping my faith. I am holding on to the belief that it’s all a matter of believing that life would get better and it will.
*This entry should have been published last Sunday for Blog Your Blessings Sunday but since I only got to finish it today, I thought I’d still post it now instead of this coming Sunday.

I don’t think I can ever forget that haunting voice of his. I had it on a recorded audio. I used to listen to it whenever I was feeling down. But then it drowned in a bucket of water. The audio CD was broken! I had to rely on my memory to bring back that haunting voice whenever I wanted to hear it again.
Someone I know wants to delve into audio recording. I am not sure if it’s songs that she wants to record but I do know that she also lends her voice to audio book recording and I do believe she wants to use her voice again to earn a bit on the side through musian friend.
I don’t think someone else will have a haunting voice like his for me. I’ve heard some really beautiful voices from people I personally know and nobody beats his.

My sister and I were talking about a stay-cation. The place need not be outside the city. It could be a cheap hotel somewhere near, we really don’t care. Just as long as we can stay there for the weekend, away from the neighborhood we are in now, away from the noise, and just an overall change in environment, that would be totally fine with us.
But I also want some time alone. I want complete silence even for a day or two. I want that for myself.
Growing up in a large family has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is not having your own bedroom and being surrounded by noise all the time. Of course, I am not complaining about my family. I am used to sharing and the noise but there are days when I also want to be on my own, away from everybody else, away from the chaos and the mess.
Well, if I can go somewhere now to have my alone time, I would do so.

July was not a really month for me so I am hoping (claiming!) that August will be a much better one for me. I am also hoping that positive things will come into my life considering this is my birth month. Yay!
Claiming it, Lord!

I’ll be very honest with you here. I’ve been struggling for the past few weeks now. Blogging has been down for most of us who were earning a lot from it. The update made by the lord of the net affected all of us. It was a big let down and I was so stressed out about it.
Thank goodness my sister R would make me stop from wallowing in misery. Can you imagine losing some very special domains to me because I didn’t have enough in my Paypal account to renew it, whereas before I would just renew a domain a few days before it expires. It was something new to me, to be without funds for my online stuff, and I didn’t like the feeling.
Since my income decreased, I had to find a way to augment the loss. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything I could do but get a personal loan to pay off what I couldn’t from my income. I slept a lot, I am not ashamed to admit. I slept a lot because I felt so down. Sleeping became an escape for me. I also read a lot so I could divert my attention from my lack of online work.
I am just grateful that my siblings stepped up. They filled the void my income left. I am happy that there were also outside help which enabled us to move forward despite this setback to me.
I underwent a struggle, yes, but I’d like to believe that the world is round and that sooner or later I will be back on top again.
And blogging will go back to normal!
