e-Book Review: “Meaning of Life: How To Discover Your Life Purpose”

By on September 22, 2010

For as far as I could remember, I never really had a real purpose for living. More than a few times have I questioned what this life is for. Is it for me to enjoy? Is it for me to do what is expected of me? Is it for some higher purpose which up to now I still have not an inkling or even an idea about? I have always had the notion that I should find a deeper meaning into my life, but never really felt compelled to do so. Until now, that is.

Who doesn’t wanna be rich, ayt?

By on September 18, 2010

Lately I have been thinking about my financial status and the fact that I am never quite happy with it. I have a stable job, yes, and I am grateful for that since there are lots others who are unemployed. Yet my salary–even with all the overtime I render–never seems enough. Payday is every two weeks, but the money seems to run out just a mere week after. I have become a victim of that vicious payday cycle wherein happiness peaks come payday and wanes as the money run out only to peak gain comes the next payday and so on and so forth. And the worst thing is I don’t even know where all the money goes. It’s a sickening thought, but it seems I really have not one iota of financial sense. How else would this have happened otherwise?

Individuality–or the lack thereof

By on September 15, 2010

This is actually a Philosophy reaction paper I submitted way back in college. I almost got a perfect grade for this project, but for a technicality since I did not follow my professor’s prescribed format. Bummed me out big time then, but I now laugh at the silliness of that mistake. Haha. Anywho, without further ado:

With regard to everything that counts in human life, including especially matters of ethical and religious concern, philosopher Soren Aabye Kierkegaard held that the crowd is always wrong. Any appeal to the opinions of others is inherently false, since it involves an effort to avoid responsibility for the content and justification of one’s own convictions. Genuine action must always arise from the Individual, without any prospect of support or agreement from others. Thus, on Kierkegaard’s view, both self-denial and the self-realization to which it may lead require absolute and uncompromising independence from the group. Social institutions—embodying “the system” of Hegelian idealism—are invariably bad; only the solitary perception of self can be worthwhile.

So lovin’ my skin right now ^_^

By on September 11, 2010

Something I noticed in the BTS and Outtakes photos from last Sunday: my skin registered really well on camera. Like it’s glowing and all. Lookie here:

I hardly think Bob would single out and retouch my skin for a group pic like this. Haha. Here are other photos of note (in that my skin looks real good, narcissistic person that I am):

Initial Review: Nivea Creme

Nivea Creme
Nivea Creme

I chanced upon this in South Star Drugstore some nights ago. I wasn’t really looking for a moisturizer, just browsing the products as I am wont to do whenever in the vicinity of various beauty products. And nothing more than its über-cute packaging (like a lip balm pot) and cheap price (just P29.xx) got me to buy it. Haha.

Feelin’ good ^_^

By on September 3, 2010

For some weird but oh-so-wonderful reason, I am NOT gaining weight despite the fact that I have been eating a heck of a lot more than my usual–and that’s quite saying something, mind you. Like I mentioned before, I eat quite a lot for a girl. Whereas before I only eat about half a cup of rice per day, I now eat, like, three cups all in all. That’s one for the morning break, another for the afternoon break, and another when I eat after work. Throw in chocolates, sweets, some pasta here and there and lots of coffee and that about sums up my current non-diet. Haha.
