During the Cebu Blog Camp yesterday, one of the speakers mentioned that, some of the bloggers don’t really share there blogs to others. Like sharing it to the link on their facebook or twitter. His point was, if the blogger will not going to share it, he/she is not proud of what he/she is writing, he/she is not proud of how she writes.
For me, the reason why I don’t share my blog on my facebook and twitter is because there were a few entries on my blog that are too personal. But I was also guilty on what he said on the part wherein I am not really that proud of what I post.(not really all.)
A minute ago, I deleted several blog entries that for me is too personal and then shared my blog post on my facebook then twitter. This is it. Share… Share… Share…
During the Cebu Blog Camp event 2010, one of the speakers, Mica, asked a few participants on why they blog. Then it struck me. Why do I really blog? Why do I write these stuffs in the internet?
I blog for so many reasons. One of those reasons is for me to hopefully share some valuable lessons to the readers of my blog. It is not really about me. I mean I don’t really blog because I want to be famous or something. I blog because I want to partake something to the readers. I want to touch their lives. Isn’t it a great feeling that someday a reader will comment to your blog and will tell you that by reading to your blog he/she has really learned a lot of things, and that you have made an impact to their lives? That is why it is really important for me to know that somebody has followed me on my blog or somebody has read my blog because I am hoping that I might give an impact to their lives.
I’m not talking about the artista search of GMA. This is all about my experience yesterday afternoon. While I was busy working, a YM message popped-up on my screen. She was thanking me because of the blog I wrote last Tuesday, April 12, 2011. (Bedroom Blog By Veronica) Well, if you’re wondering who am I talking about it’s no other than Miss Veronica Matilda herself (of course that is not her real name). At first, I really had a doubt if she really was who she telling me. But she assured me that it was her. Well, whether it was her or not, I was really so excited at that very moment to chat with her. Hehehehe! Talking about a real fan huh?
She told me that she found my blog while she was googling Bedroom Blog. Which is what she do sometimes. Google herself or Bedroom Blog on the internet. And guess what. I also googled channbear on the internet to confirm what she said. Hahahaha! And my blog is the 8th on the result list. Hehehehe! I really had a great time chatting with Miss V even if it was just for a short time.
Thanks again Miss V. Keep blogging.
Everyday aside from checking my mail(personal and office mail) I never forget to check whether a new blog entry of my favorite blog is in. Well, that would be Bedroom Blog By Veronica. I really like to read her blog. It is funny, ma drama, and you can also learn so much from reading from her blog. Veronica is one of my inspiration why I keep on posting a blog entry even if I know that not a lot of people read what I write here. She inspires me in a way that I too, is hoping that someday I could also be like her, can inspire other people because of what i wrote. I also admire her for being so brave. Despite all the problems that she came across, she did not just lie in bed and cry it out and give up. She worked her butt out and face those things/people which were trying to destroy her.
That is really what we call “Girl Power”. I really salute all those women who is like Veronica. I hope you too could be able to read her blog and be inspired.
“Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilightseries.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes.”
For the past months, I’ve been very active in running(fun run,jogging), badminton,basketball,badminton and pop jazz. Even if I was very busy at work and with those stuffs, I never really got sick. But after the fire run that we have participated, me, Retchel and Bryan never found a time again to meet for a jogging or what. I am now just working full-time. Because of this, my immune system got weak. I got colds and cough. boohoo!
Bry, Chel…Jogging nata ug sayaw2x ug mag badminton… Hehehehe!
I was reading Bob Ong’s Bakit Baliktad Magbasa ang mga Pilipino last night and I came across this very funny letter that he featured on his book. Here it is. I hope you won’t get a nosebleed on it. Hahahaha!
I am not surprise or wonder why Dennis leave you.
What reason you can think about but you’re very fat body. I thought before that Dennis only use me to his toy but sooner and later I’m realize that he really can’t not beared or stomached to be with you anymore because at first, Dennis say he could not stand you’re habit of making pakialam all his walks[lakad] and always calling to their house what he go home or this or that and then he say he get ashame to met either in school or his family and then asking you to exercise you’re very very, very fat body but you hate it thoughth your the most preetiest girls he knows about what do you think you are “Beautiful Girl” of Jose Marie Chan even you are beautiful face to your think) you do not have the right to called me whatsoever or else different name one time or the other for the real purposed to insults my personality because I’m never call you names either in the front of Dennis or in the backs of Dennis, but if you start already to calling me different name, I don’y have any other choice but to call you other different name to like you are a PIG, FAT, OBSSED, OVERWIGHT, AND UGLY SHAPE girl. Shame to you’re body that is to a BUDING. You can’t not blame Dennis for exchanging you to me because I am the more sexier than you when you look to us in the mirror. I’m repeat again that you are like Ike Lozada when she is a girl.
FROM: THE SEXIEST GIRL OF D.M.
P.S. You say that I’m the bad breathe but who is Dennis want to kissed. Me or you? You or me? And the final is me.
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. Hahahaha! Joke! As we all know Christmas is fast approaching. It’s the time of the year where people from all shapes and sizes rush on the malls to buy stuffs to give to their friends and families. Well it’s also the time of the year wherein we also list the things that we want to receive on Christmas day.
When I was still a little kid, during this time, my mother would tell us to write a letter for Jesus on what we would like to receive on Christmas day. After we finished writing the letter, we then put it on our altar. Then, starting that day we will pray the rosary in front of our altar so that our wish/prayers will come true. But sad to say, I really did not received all the toys that I have wished and wrote on that letter. Hehehe! Nevertheless, I learned how to pray the rosary and be grateful of every blessings that the Lord God has bestowed on me and to my family.
Despite the fact that every year I don’t get my wishes. I still continue to write a letter to Jesus or write the things that I wanted to receive on Christmas. So just like before below are a few things that I want to receive on Christmas.
1.) Turtle/Tortoise Stuff Toy
2.) Maxie Girl/Bratz Doll
3.) Doll House
4.) Troll Doll
5.) New Shoes
6.) New Dress
7.) Polly Pocket
8.) Magic 8 Ball
9.) Baby Alive Doll
10.) Complete Drawing Set
I only have a few very close friends to mention. They are in different genders, I have a few female friends, male friends and even gay friends. hehehe. But majority of my close friends are guys. I don’t know but I can easily get along with my boyfriends rather than with my girlfriends. No, I’m not tibo. Infact, I’m a very kikay girl. hahahaha! Yes, I am. Believe it or not but I’m one of those girls who will go gaga with pink stuffs. hahaha. But i also love to play tekken, God of War, and DOTA, which most of the guys are playing.
As I was saying awhile ago, majority of my close friends consists of guys. I will enumerate a few of the good things in having a guy friend.
1.) If the sun is up, and you forgot your umbrella, they won’t mind that you will use them as your shield against the heat of the sun. (hahaha…mean…)

Then they will give you chocolates to really cheer you up. (what’s with chocolate? why not pizza? hahahaha… nag demand ang loka… hahahaha…)
5.) You can poke, punch, or even bite them all you want and they will not keep a grudge on you. Even if they’ll poke, punch or bite you back, they won’t make it so painful. (hehehe…)
6.) You can talk to them about video games, horror movies, cars, and anime.
7.) You get free hugs even when you really don’t need it.
8.) You can talk to them till four in the morning without them worrying about their beauty sleep. (literally 4am in the morning. you were still talking with him at that time, you were still up when suddenly a member of your family will wake up to get ready for work or school while you, will still then go to sleep. hehehehe…)

11.) If they will tease you to the next level wherein you’ll be sulking on it because you felt bad on what he did, then you’ll be the drama queen because you will then not talk to him, they will surely do anything for you to talk to them again, for you to forgive them. (They will then give you a Mocha Frappe from Bo’s or Starbucks if you will forgive them. hahahaha…)
12.) They give you cool mp3s, movies, PSP games. They woul even go to far by finding so many ways if a game that you really wanted will not play on your PSP.
13.) They will tell you honestly what they think of what you are wearing or what clothes you are going to buy. If the style is not so into you, they would surely tell you the truth.
14.) They make you laugh,smile especially if you are so down. They even find ways to make you laugh even in the strangest, weirdest ways

16.) They watch your back. They will be your knight in a shining armour when you need one.
17.) They will give-in to your dares and treat you in IMAX when they lose.
18.) They will treat you to the different restos that you’ve never been to.
19.) They will bring foods for you, especially foods that you haven’t tasted before.
20.) They won’t try to change you.
21.) They tell you you’re beautiful. (hahahaha… every girl needs to be told that they are beautiful.. so? hahahahaha…)
22.) They inspire you.
23.) They look after you when you are sick.
24.) They’ll gladly finish your food for you.
25.) You can be so cheesy or charing all you want.
26.) You’ll be confortable in acting or saying the things you want to do or say infront of them without being afraid of losing them, because they accept you for who you are. 🙂
Well, that’s all I can think of for now. All I can say is despite the fact that sometimes they make me wanna cry out of annoyance, or they make me want to blow up like a volcano, I love my guy friends. Don’t want to loose them. I will endure anything just to stay friends with them. (yeah…yeah…ka charingan again…hahahahha…) But seriously, I will always be on their back to support them. 🙂
