I'm sitting here at the Minneapolis Airport...watching abc shows online since I have a 6 hour layover....
In a few hours...I'll be home...maybe for a while, maybe for a long time...it's pretty unsure...but I know for sure is I'll always come home :)
What I'm excited about my trip back home is that I would have the chance to really be with my family. My last two trips back home were really really short, I really didn't have the chance to spend some QT with my friends and family. So when I come back, we're going to Bohol for a long vacation...and I really really need a break from work and stress....to think things through...
My assignment here in the US was a blast, the whole 11 months of it. Yah sometimes it's sad and I feel home sick at times wishing that I brought a little piece of home with me....but after some time I got used to living alone, it's only during the time that I know that I'll be coming home soon, that I got to be homesick again.
This experience is really fun and I'm thankful for the opportunity, the learnings and the people I met along the way....not to mention the sweet payoff...
I'm not sure if I will be back here in the US, so even if it costs money I made sure that I made the most out of this trip. I watched concerts, went on a vacation on other states...shopped for gadgets till I dropped haha! But who knows when I'll be back it maybe sooner or never haha!
***I used up 15,000 miles to upgrade to World Business Class....hehe...it's a lot of miles to spend...but hey...I just want to pamper myself a little :P I'm already in full vacation mode here...haha

Today...is my baby Ira's b-day....bought date or be-mine date or something....
It's now 2 years that I have my guitar, although, almost 11 months of it, I spent far away from Ira....but then again, I know that our reunion will be sweet, just a few more days!
I recorded 2 out of my 3 songs with Ira, my original song and my vertical horizon cover...Aside from the unfortunate micro/minor cracks, he's still in pretty good condition. And I want to make sure that it stays that way.
4 more nights and I'll be on my way home...Yay!
Hmmm...I'm tad confused right now....I thought I already have everything straightened out....but then again, I could be wrong...Oh well, we'll see....
-oOo-I'm currently listening to Matchbox 20's new album...I told myself I will buy the album when I come back home, but then again, my EQ dropped 100 points, the moment I saw it on Target, I know I just have to buy the album! hehe.

Being a sleepy head sometimes, I always had a pack of gum handy. But this time, I forgot to refill my stash, and I'm just sleepy that I went to the vendo machine to buy me a gum. I have 2 choices...Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum & Dentyne Classic. I haven't tried Dentyne so I inserted my 1 dollar bill on the machine and pressed H2. Happy with my buy...I quickly opened the package and tried one gum. And what I didn't notice is that it was a Cinnamon Flavored Gum...Yah...it was really weird...Don't get me wrong I love cinnamon, but I love them better on a cinnamon roll...definitely not on a gum!
But then again, I know I have to consume all of these gum sticks (it cost me 60 cents! hehe and I don't want to buy a new one)...so as days passed my 7 gum sticks became non existent. Even with its weird taste and smell, I was able to finish a pack.
Reminds me of life in general. Through all adversities we easily adapt and just endure it till it's gone, and somehow we find ourselves loving it or making the most out of it, or just sticking it out till the good one comes along. Or it can mean that we usually settle for something we don't want just because it's safer, it's cheaper, or we're afraid to try new things which is somehow un-secure and out of our comfort zones.
Well as for me I have endured my cinnamon flavored gum. I finished one pack...and that's it. I have endured it's weirdness, but that doesn't mean I will go back and buy a new one. I'll buy a better one...I might try out other gums which in the end is also weird...but that's fine with me, I'll stick it out until I finish the pack and buy a new gum. I'll move on even if it is un-secure and totally out of my comfort zone just because I want to believe that I don't settle for anything less for myself.

Noypi by Bamboo
Tingnan mo ang iyong palad
Kalyado mong kamay
Sa hirap ng buhay
Sa dami mong problema
Nakuha mo pang ngumiti
Noypi ka nga. Astig.
Saan ka man naroroon, wag kang matatakot sa baril o patalim
Sa bakas na madilim
Hoy pinoy ako
Buo aking loob, may agimat ang dugo ko
Sinisid ko ang dagat
Nilibot ko ang mundo
Nasa puso ko pala and hinahanap kong kulo
Ilang beses nakong muntikang mamatay
Alam ko ang sekreto kaya't nandito pa't buhay
Sabi nila may anting-anting ako
pero di nila alam na Diyos and dahilan ko
Hoy pinoy ako
Buo aking loob, may agimat ang dugo ko
Dinig mo ba ang bulong ng lahi mo
Isigaw mo kapatid ang himig natin
... looking for the better part of me...
