Sleepy hollow

Yep, very sleepy kasi went home at nearly 8am. At brownout pa rin sa Cityland but quickly slipped to unconsciousness anyway.  Parang 286 kasi yung brain ko lately. Am recovering na from flu-induced joint tenderness although me aftertaste when I cough.  I miss working out whether playing badminton or the gym pero ganyan talaga ang buhay. Seeing one of my gymmates sa bank the other day of course sparked this feeling of wanting to rush to the gym. But I know I should bide my time and give my body a rest.

BTW, am saddened about news that Bong, one of our art stalwarts, is moving on. But
I guess that's life.

Lately, I've been thinking a bit of the future.
I wish to do well in the ACE exams this May. I think I want to give working overseas a try, this time in the fitness industry. Tutal, it's one of my lifelong interests naman. Not unless, I make a really big headway in advertising at this point in my life. Don't get me wrong.  It's fun working in this industry. It's just nerve-wracking and tiring at times. Sometimes, the puyat and the pagod make you careless about not exercising, not eating right, not taking care of yourself right.

It's really a challenge to keep healthy while living a life. But one thing great about growing older is that you learn to make priorities, and let go of things that may not be good for you. The past few months have been witness to this fact. I've learned to let go of some friendships that may not be doing me good. I've simmered down in terms of eating and drinking, learning to say no, learning to rest when I have to. Is it being selfish? I guess not. It's just knowing everyone is different and what works for other people may not be best for me.

The time away from playing has also made me realize who my real friends are. They're the ones
I can talk to and talk with regardless of current playing skills. While letting go of some friends isn't painless, it's also cathartic.

The other wonderful thing that happened is that
I'm actually enjoying playing again. Maybe it's because I'm not that competitive anymore. Am doing this for exercise and fun. And meeting new people is a great experience.

Regarding my career path, well,
I leave it up to the Man Upstairs to help me decide on which path to take. Came across a commentary by one of my bodybuilding idols, Shawn Ray, who's born again. And he said something like putting one's trust in the Lord. at the end of the day, it really boils down to having faith first in Him so we can have faith in ourselves.

For the next few hours, here's looking forward to sleeping, perchance to dream... _c")_

P.S. Finally, saw Dindin's site and our photos during B2's despedida
Buti na lang down pa yung Baddicts site because I dread Dindin's dare to send Rickleng my photo about to chow down a whole Fat Michael's Chicken Kabab.
