One day, while my daughter was happily distracted in her own marker drawings, I decided to risk pulling out a new sketchbook I had special ordered. It had dark paper, and was perfect for adding highlights to. I had only drawn a little in it, and was anxious to try it again, but knowing our daughter's love of art supplies, it meant that if I wasn't sly enough, I might have to share.
I have gained so much weight for such a short period of time. In January, I wore my favorite skinny jeans and it was already difficult for me to put on. I wanted to wear them again in March, and surprisingly, I COULDN’T WEAR THEM ANYMORE! It’s been so hard to even put on some of my shirts and my short pants. CRAZY!
I tried to go on a diet, but my love for food kept me from eating less. I started to do yoga and some dance workouts but my laziness kept me from doing them regularly.
If I am consistent with something, that will be my being INCONSISTENT! I know what I have to do, but I can’t do it. I am lacking determination.
So today, I’ve decided to really lose A LOT OF weight so I could wear my old clothes again. I am not really into buying new clothes unless there is an occasion.
I know that all I have to do is SWEAT…. A LOT. So I have to exercise and perspire. Then REALLY eat less. I MUST give up eating what I want, FOR NOW. Until I can fasten the buttons on my jeans again, I will not stop.
Please Rika, be consistent. Help yourself. You know that only you can push yourself. People can try but if you continue being stubborn, you will not be able to make it. So get the fck moving!
It’s been so long since I last posted on this page. It was not because there wasn’t much to tell, but I guess I have been too busy to tell stories.
A lot has happened since October 2012 and I can’t even remember everything anymore. Christmas came, New Year, our 3rd year anniversary, my 28th birthday, Valentine’s Day, Holy Week, my brother’s birthday and my younger son’s birthday all came.
I think the highlight of my life right now, is my going back to school. Yes, I inquired at Pamantasan ng Cabuyao with Guil and took the entrance exam on April 11th. We were so nervous because it had been over a decade since we were both at school, taking examinations. We were too scared that we would fail that test. I don’t really know how it happened but we both passed the test, and, with fairly good scores! Haha! We were super thrilled and amazed. Okay, so everything was rolling as we wished them to.
Less than a month ago, we returned to the university to submit the requirements. Just a couple of days ago, we went back there for the interview. Boy was I nervous! I was shaking and I could hardly breathe while waiting for my turn, and even while inside the VPAA’s office. He asked questions, I tried to answer with a steady voice. Then he signed and told me to go to the Dean of Education.
As I entered the Dean’s office, I gave him my folder, and he gave me a sheet of yellow paper. He told me to write a composition about the “Essence of Education”. So off we went and started writing outside the campus. I tried to gather my thoughts and wrote. Then we headed back to the Dean’s office and submitted our compositions. When I sat at his desk, he read my composition. He was nodding while reading and seemed to like what I wrote. Finally, he said, “It was good. But… Since you will become a teacher, you have to write in cursive and it should be readable.” I smiled and admitted that I was still shaking from the interview that I had with the VPAA. But I was really worried about cursive writing. I really hated that back in 2nd grade. Until now, I am not confident to write in cursive, but I have to practice and get used to it.
Then we were sent to the Guidance Counselor, had another interview, then finally were sent to the clinic. We have to undergo some tests and a dental check up, so we will be admitted to the university. This coming week, we are scheduled to go to Ospital ng Cabuyao for the medical tests.
I am really excited to go to college. I will really do my best.
So help me God.
DEMOCRACY! Surely, you can generate better ideas. IF YOU CHOOSE TO.
A few days ago, I suddenly craved for spaghetti. But because my resources were limited, I couldn’t get all the must-haves for spaghetti.
However, I was able to gather good alternatives to finally make my favorite food of all time.
First, of course, you have to sauté garlic and onion.
Then add in your corned beef and hotdogs. Season with some salt and patis (fish sauce) to taste.
Pour in your spaghetti sauce and some catsup.
Add some cheese. Let it cook. Add some pepper.
The taste actually depends on you. And it’s best to cook your elbow macaroni while cooking the sauce. Saves a lot of time.
