I Don't Have Time?

I didn't really expect to hear myself say, "I don't have time".  It is what grown ups say, those people who have given up life's little happiness for money. Maybe I have become a grown up... because I am not happy. 

But what is time? Isn't it a bunch of numbers on a circular frame?

Time doesn't exist... it's just man who tried to measure the things around him. Time is but a matter of perspective. It is a product of man's efforts to put everything in order: wake up at 6, eat lunch at 12, sleep at 8. 

In this crazy world, people are all about money. Time is money.  I wonder who came up with that crap! Time is not money! Money is about you waiting for the perfect time and striking at the opportunity! It is not rushing. It is not striking carelessly. 

Ah~ But the world likes to be fast and be competitive. Important things like love and compassion are forgotten. Friends, family, everyone becomes a competitor... and thus an enemy. 

People forget about helping each other and working together. People become impatient because of the mindset that everything should be done instantly. People become cold towards others and they treat them as a thing. If you have no use for their success, then you are nobody. 

It seems that time becomes out of control when you get older. I won't be surprise if one day, we will buy time, just like how clean water is sold nowadays. 

And ah~ here I am stuck in the crossroads of my philosophies. I am compelled to live in this world but I am a human person. I don't see competitors, I see friends. As always, I am a 'pasaway' (a person who doesn't follow orders). And if someone were to rate me on how I live in this world, on it is written DOES NOT CONFORM. 

So what does a non-conformist do? Enjoy life! Go home early! Go out during weekends! I will not stop living a life. I have to find a way to be happy... and to be able to stop myself from saying, "I don't have time". 

I have to hold time in my hands.

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
