Rest period

For over two months I have stopped going to the gym. I am still in the process of recuperating from the traumatic incident I got myself into. It cause my right inguinal to get inflamed. I feel a whole lot better now but I need to give myself a break for another month or two. I just want to be back to the gym to get my stuff I left in one of the gym lockers. I am afraid that they have taken my stuff away because the rental period for the said locker was over. Add to Technorati Favorites

Aurora, Colorado a week after

It has been week since the horrific shooting spree in a theatre in Aurora, Colorado during a midnight opening premiere of Batman The Dark Knight Rises. While the first week of mourning coincides with the highly anticipated opening of the 2012 London Olympics, many are still feeling the ripple effect of the tragedy. A makeshift memorial was made to pay homage and as the names of those whose lives were lost, I felt chills down my spine. It took only a few minutes to take 12 lives and to seriously injure more people. James Holmes is now locked up and it will surely take some time to heal not just the superficial wounds but the emotional nightmare each of the victim and their relatives are now enduring.

More reason not to watch movies in theater

My friends who have been my movie-watching buddies have left the country and I being all alone, I do not have the courage to rush to the movie house even though I want to catch the latest flick on the big screen . In the height of the Batman The Dark Knight Rises, 12 lives were lost and 50 plusothers were hurt as a gun man, named James Holmes went ballistic at the midnight showing of the most awaited Batman franchise

I was shaken to the core learning that the suspect came in to the movie theatre armed with heavy ammo and a tear gas in Aurora, Colorado. At first, the moviegoers in the theatre thought that blasting of tear gas and firing of guns in the air were part of the movie premiere. It was too late when they realized the Holmes as aiming the gun at his victims indiscriminately. The youngest victim who died was a 6-year-old kid while the oldest was 51-year-old man. The whole country of America was mourning about this tragic incident and make shift memorial was made in the town of Aurora. Lead actor of the Dark Knight, Christian Bale, went out of his way to pay his respect to the victims in Colorado. The tragedy was just unbelievable. The first lawsuit has been filed against Holmes.

I have been telling that I am not a fan of movie houses, and this recent turn of events made me more disinterested in going too the movie theatre. Add to Technorati Favorites

Biking gets fun

Among my many entries on my bucketlist is my desire to join a triathlon. I was able to finish 10k in my previous runs, I know how to swim a little and I am sure pro at biking. Ha! I recently joined the a trekker’s club to boost up my desire. I have met up with a fellow member and I am amazed how he is serious about his biking passion. He has several suv bike racks that will secure his bike on his car while trekking the road to terrains. Add to Technorati Favorites

I wanna be a rockstar!

I have so many things that I want to accomplish in life. One of which is my drive to learn how to play the guitar. I envy those who found connection with any musical instrument. I always smile when I pass by the musical instrument shops along Magsaysay Avenue. I am thinking if I would enrol to music school or just watch demos for dummies on YouTube. My friend is now rocking beyerdynamic dt 770 pro and I cannot wait to lay my tiny fingers on the strings of the guitar I could call my own. Add to Technorati Favorites

Getting serious

As time goes by, it starts to dawn on me that research is a serious thing in our institution. At first, I was annoyed why our bosses are so frantic it and not until the proposal day I realized that it is indeed a big thing. Being on the third place out of three, I felt ashamed. For me, it means that it is just a consolation. The lowest place we could be in. I told myself to start to be serious about the whole research thing. More than my boss, I want myself to be proud of what I am doing. I commit to share my knowledge in perfecting the topic that we chose. It is not too late to start anew. Add to Technorati Favorites

Feeling the blow

Fine. It is kicking in. We lost the research proposal contest. The study began in January and it was only in April that I was made the official chair to represent our ward. Admittedly, I did not lash out the inner inquirer and writer in me so I was a bit nervous about the end product of our research proposal. I could sense the frustration in my head nurse who was the overall chairperson for the team. I am expecting water fountains anytime as the blow starts to give the pain and show bruises on her body. I am preparing for it. Add to Technorati Favorites
