I need cash for books

My 2011 goal has not moved an inch!


While I do have 2 books that are coming as soon as I find money to pay for it, I have gotten into a small problem money-wise, and I am $7 dollars short. Now I cannot buy the two books that I have been waiting for. So yeah, NEED CASH FOR BOOKS! I am currently contemplating if I should hold one of those cardboard signs used by homeless folk.

On the other hand, I have not given up entirely. I am still reading whenever I have the time, or when my brain is not too exhausted to think.

Currently, I am reading one of the “Bartimeaus Trilogy” by Jonathan Stroud books which I was able to purchase for $2 which I nabbed from the sale box at our local bookstore. I happen to love it!

I will keep you posted as soon as I manage to finish it though.

Wish me luck!

Abort! Reboot! Abort! Reboot!

Sometimes I wish life came with a reboot button.

Say for instance, my day goes on from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Unfortunately, from then on, it begins to crash and burn, and sometimes just processes one thought or obstacle for an undetermined span of time.

If that were a computer and things do not go wrong, I would just simply override the system, and when in vain, reboot, or kill the computer by pressing hard on that stubborn power button.

But I guess life or days do not have that option.

My friend says that our day to day lives really do not have the luxury of rebooting so I should think of my body and mind as a super powered data cabinet / server, serving the world from here to kingdom come.

As much as I would like to argue, I have no more strength in me. See, it is one of those days that went wrong from 8 a.m. and finally was able to process everything by 5. Though all those system failures and mondo let downs are accumulating somewhere on my body’s error.log, I must say that at least I think I can get a semi-reboot at night. Just semi-because I know for a fact that I should not just abort it, but reboot. Aborting could mean permanent damage on the hard drive, ya know?

While rebooting may leave a little more room to… well, fail again.

But hey, we can always have upgrades, right?


By the way, aside from a writer, I am also an Information Technology professional, which is partially the reason why I feel the need to compare my life to a computer. Yes, I know. I fail.

Tackling 3 in 1

I have been away. I know.

The business of my grandma’s passing has been keeping me up on my tippy toes and having me run around while the demands of work are anchoring me as well. I guess it pays to be me.

I do not have a lot of time to spare today, so I hope to make a single post hitting all of my missed topics at the DailyPost.

Questions and answers are all that I can do for now, so I hope this works.

1) How do you define a friend?

I think people earn a lot of friends. Friends are easy to gain, if I am not mistaken, BUT the challenge is earning true friends who will stick by you through thick or thin, and even step in when all is lost.

In my life, I’ve had numerous situations where I really could not rely on my family to help because they were too preoccupied with their presumptions and prejudice that they failed to extend a helping hand when needed the most. During these instances, I was able to determine which of my friends were true and which ones were fair-weathered.

I have been extremely lucky enough to find a lot of friends who have stood by me through times of conflict, while there were some who did not really make things better.Still, since I did find more than one true friend, I am at ease.


2) What is your favorite sound?

You know the song by the Cascades? “Rhythm of the Rain.”

I love the sound of rain on the rooftops or the splash of the raindrops on buckets overflowing with cool liquid.

However, there is nothing more comforting, for me, than the sound of crackling fire. I know I may not have much experience enjoying the sound, but even when dried leaves burn, they emit this sound that makes me snuggle and makes me feel like I am home.


3) What’s your idea for a perfect Sunday?

Hmmm.. Sunday’s would be perfect if I could spend it at the beach.I love the beach. The warm sun, the cool breeze, and just chillin where the waves tumble and crash and mists of saltwater spray land on my face.Either that, or a day watching movies with popcorn, and snuggling. Lots and lots of snuggling.



I know I should elaborate more, but maybe I will do so later on.For now, being awake for almost 3 days is making me extremely cranky and sleepy.

I have to say good night now, or at least get a mug of coffee to help wake me up.
