Breakfast Sessions

So now I have thought of a great title. Breakfast Sessions, since I do this every morning when I wake up. Either before or after breakfast. This was still taken inside my lil bro's room and I admit I have a lot of mistakes here. Still a big room for improvement but this vlog what drives me to be better. haha.

I know my voice and guitar is waaaaaaaaay off key but here's my breakfast yesterday. haha.
Pardon my abysmal guitar skills.. :D

Jesus Never Fails

On my way home from the office, a jeepney cut the jeepney I was riding, and it's rear slogan reads "Jesus Never Fails" It actually made me smile and I said to myself, I'll blog about this statement. So here I am, blogging about it without an actual train of thought. Just blogging what's on my mind.

The reason why it made me smile was because It's a nice thought, Jesus never fails. It is us who fail, we fail in a lot of things, sometimes blaming luck or fate when things didn't go the way we planned. Thinking about it more, there were times when Jesus could've failed. When he was praying, asking "My God, my God why have you foresaken me" he could've just given up but he rose to his position as God's Son and saved us all.

Maybe we can fail less if we change the way we think about things. If we dont blame anyone or anything about faults and disorders in our lives. If we start acting up instead of backing down. If we start being a person of Integrity. If we start thinking positively, then we may minimize failures in our lives

after all failure is just a state of mind

An attempt for Bathroom Sessions

Okay, I haven't thought of a nice title for my guitar sessions and this first 1 isn't at the bathroom, it's in my lil bro's room. This is just an attempt so it's not a full song or anything.

Loooong Weekend

This has been a tiring weekend for me. For starters, I don't seem to have a weekend cause of my jam-packed sched. I usually have my day off on Sundays but had it switched to Saturday so I could attend the Vicariate Youth Day (yesterday Nov. 7, 2009). The youth day started with a mass, then had a sustainable development talk. After lunch, we had a very tiring Amazing Race. (My team came in 7th! Go brown!!!! and no, there were more than 7 teams! there were about 15). Attended the 6pm anticipated mass, had dinner, waited for bry to call (2 hours of waiting!) dozed off at about 22:30.

I woke up at around 8am this morning from a very action-packed dream (I was in combat and was constantly running. It was also emotional and suspense-ful) and baked some brownies. Took a bath at around 10:30 and arrived at the office at quarter to 12. Made an exam for my beloved students and danced my ass off til 19:30. Bry arrived at the office and we picked on each other til 21:00. Arrived home at about 22:00 then ate, Bry ate and ran and I'm now waiting for him to get home safely and call me :D

I'm sooooo dead tired! and I'm starting to feel the aches in my body. I have a full-load tom (yay for OT pay, oh no no break!) Hope I can manage to put on a smile tomorrow

Back on track

Okay, so I know i haven't blogged for a while, blogging lost it's novelty when I was soooo busy in school and so absorbed with work. Now I am not. I am not schooling and I'm not absorbed with work, so now I want to blog again! YAY for me!

I still dont know what to type in this blogsite though. When i first made this blog, I wanted it to have impact, to be a blog that people would visit because of it's content. I dont want it to be just an outlet of my screaming mind but silent lips. It seems though I have no choice but to do that.

I'm planning to make a vlog, but it would be videos of me playing the guitar and singing. I know I know it's not a pretty sight to see and it would definitely anger the savage beast, but it would be my motivation to try singing and playing the guitar properly. You have the option of not watching anyway. right? :D I'm thinking of a catchy tag for this vlog. How about bathroom sessions? since I plan to record the videos inside the bathroom. (Nice acoustics!) Hmm....

My blog ends here. I'm hungry already and have used 21 mins of my precious 1 hour break!!!!
