Arriba Letran!!!

No. I am not from Letran. I just love the Letran Knights. 🙂 Well, not only because my hubby is a Letranite but because it was also my supposed to be school for college seven years ago.

After not being able to reach the quota courses for UP Dil and Manila and not knowing my future GWA from the UPCAT could be used to get in to other courses, I took two more College Entrance Examinations. UST and Letran. With doubts of not continuing my maternal family trend of getting in and graduating as a Thomasian, i took exams as well in Letran as my backfall. Yes, they are sister schools as others say. If you wondered if i took exams in La Salle or ADMU, i think if i remember correctly i applied for a scholarship in ADMU but i can’t really recall if i passed or not. Maybe not, because if i passed i could have easily remembered it. Anyway, when the USTET results were realeased, i passed for the courses i took and other courses too except for those that would require skill exams. I was torn back then between Letran and UST. Of course my mother insisted to go to UST which is just blocks away from home instead of Letran that requires a little bit of effort to get in the campus.  And so i become a Thomasian. My Letranite side has been forgotten in the past. When my hubby came into my life, he brought back the possibility of becoming a Letran Knight. My hubby was my knight in shining armor that tamed me as a growling tiger. It was also the first talk we had on the on set of our dating and our relationship. The Letran-UST talk paved a way to get to know each other better, meet up, date, and fall in love again and again everyday.

We watched the game together yesterday in Cuneta Astrodome, we were seen several times in video footage of ABS CBN sports channel 23 everytime the Letran crowd gets wild.  I thought by sitting on ring side would spare us from being seen in TV, but no, we were sitted beside hard core fans who does unbelievable yet amusing things that is why the video is always directed to our seats.

Letran had a bad day at shooting, it was not their normal game, it was in the fourth quarter that Letran got their groove back but too late to transcend San Beda Red Lions’ score.  Anyhow, Letran lose gracefully with their pride intact. 6-1 is their present NCAA Season 84 standing still leading the schools for the first round of eliminations. Me and my hubby would definitely watch the 2nd round of eliminations we believe that our knights could win the game next time.  I enjoyed the school spirit of Letran, their trash talks and their cheers. Kudos and Arriba Letran!!!

Attached here is the video of the half time cheer of Letran:

Even though we lost, me and my hubby continued our day together somewhere to chill and enjoy each other’s company. 🙂 For now, i am still cheering for them, Arriba Letran!!!

Old School

Tags: , , ,

Long before technology invented online diaries, journal and blogs, sentimental persons keep their record of important events hand written or type written then compiled as a single book/let. It is the same as a blog except that, only those persons whom you show it would have access to it. This old school blog would also be a laugh trip when someone you knew accidentally find it and read it. Well maybe that’s from my perspective.

I used to write diaries before. My first diary was conventional but i didn’t start my entries with Dear Diary, i just wrote the date, the specific moment or outburst of emotions and everything else that i can’t blurt out to anyone. It ranged from great happpenings in school, frustrations, to chit chats with friends, to tampo moments for getting reprimanded, to crushes, to fantasies to escapades and all. What made it special is that, after getting tired of my diary i misplaced it. And kaboom. My evil elder brother keeps on teasing me, i had no idea at first but when it sank in, i knew he read it from my previous diary. And the joke was on me. To add it up, during one of the overnight stays with my high school friends, they found it and read it all at once and memorized all the controversial notes and teased me. Laugh trip it is as i look back on it.

My next accounts of privacy were kept with utmost care. It was not just a diary, it was a stalker’s diary. Yes, i was a stalker before. This particular written document included detailed list about my crushes. OO, marami ako talaga crush nung bata ako. It recorded seemingly moments with my crush. Seemingly because, it may be true or not, what was written was just in my perspective. Just to give you an example, when my crush# 1 happened to look to my direction, i assumed that he noticed me and tried to have an eye contact. True or False? i still don’t know, but the only thing clear is that, i have recorded the times i saw my crush, had nil to little interaction and the hopes of having them as lover or partner. Well that was before.

Another version of my accord is the fling book. Those whom i loved sincerely had their own journals (to date, i only have 3 AT, DM and HUBBY ) The short termed “Syotas” were recorded, puppy love, infatuated relationships, quasi relationships and MUs. What amuses me until know is that i put their name on the list when i have strong emotions for them, and when i look back today, i find myself laughing my hearts out as my description of them was really hilarious. I recall one, “I love AM because he fetches me everyday to school. He brought the best in me because he reviews me before every exam.”

Leading me to the rationale of this post. I was not able to blog again, because my HUBBY made me felt that he deserves his own journal, the old school way. A recorded memory of the times we shared and will stillshare in the future. I lost track of my blog as i wrote everything the old school way.  I decided not to blog more about HUBBY as i would like to keep our relationship private. I felt that whatever intimacy we have, it’s ours and i can’t just share it without his consent. OO, mahirap at effort talaga pero para sa hubby ko e gagawin ko! Un oh. Super cheesy. 😛  Unlike DM, i poured my emotions blogging what we had, although hinde rin lahat, baka kce ma Rated-R ako bigla e. Well lalo pa ngaun with my HUBBY. So if you are wondering where i am this past few days, this is the culprit, my diary for my hubby.  One copy is mine and one copy for him. I love the prints on the notebook. 🙂

P.S.

Arriba Letran for tomorrow’s game against Beda. Me and my HUBBY will be there 😛

Strengths Test

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 9:56 am
Tags: , ,

After the video presentation and sponsorhip of the book, i was able to finally answer the Strength Finder and pulled up results that best describes me now. From the talk of Marcus Buckingham, i learned that as we grow up, we become more of what and who we really are, there will be minor changes but the core person inside will always be me the way i was born to be. Strengths should be nourished further and keep on pushing them to create more impact or even change the world. You may ask, how about weakness, it is not being said to ignore and not improve our weak points. The talk only tells us to focus more of our time to further the strengths we currently have to optimize ourselves for whatever purpose we intend to use for.

Note however, that you can’t access the test if you have not purchased the book, the online strengths finder need a unique access code, once registered it can’t be used again. Biggy thanks to our company who pushes every employee to be the best they can. Living our mantra of, Change the world, have Fun and Make Money. I love this book, but not as much as i love my hubby. (Yun oh, isingit daw ba talaga HUBZ ko. hehe)

And because i perceive this test to really identify the consistent behavior and strength within me, i am sharing with you my top 5 strengths according to the test, they call this as my signature themes report. Buy the book and you wont regret it.

Your Signature Themes

Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that the most effective people are those who understand their strengths and behaviors. These people are best able to develop strategies to meet and exceed the demands of their daily lives, their careers, and their families.

A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a basic sense of your abilities, but an awareness and understanding of your natural talents will provide true insight into the core reasons behind your consistent successes.

Your Signature Themes report presents your five most dominant themes of talent, in the rank order revealed by your responses to StrengthsFinder. Of the 34 themes measured, these are your “top five.”

Your Signature Themes are very important in maximizing the talents that lead to your successes. By focusing on your Signature Themes, separately and in combination, you can identify your talents, build them into strengths, and enjoy personal and career success through consistent, near-perfect performance.

Strategic

The Strategic theme enables you to sort through the clutter and find the best route. It is not a skill that can be taught. It is a distinct way of thinking, a special perspective on the world at large. This perspective allows you to see patterns where others simply see complexity. Mindful of these patterns, you play out alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened? Okay, well what if this happened?” This recurring question helps you see around the next corner. There you can evaluate accurately the potential obstacles. Guided by where you see each path leading, you start to make selections. You discard the paths that lead nowhere. You discard the paths that lead straight into resistance. You discard the paths that lead into a fog of confusion. You cull and make selections until you arrive at the chosen path—your strategy. Armed with your strategy, you strike forward. This is your Strategic theme at work: “What if?” Select. Strike.

Achiever

Your Achiever theme helps explain your drive. Achiever describes a constant need for achievement. You feel as if every day starts at zero. By the end of the day you must achieve something tangible in order to feel good about yourself. And by “every day” you mean every single day—workdays, weekends, vacations. No matter how much you may feel you deserve a day of rest, if the day passes without some form of achievement, no matter how small, you will feel dissatisfied. You have an internal fire burning inside you. It pushes you to do more, to achieve more. After each accomplishment is reached, the fire dwindles for a moment, but very soon it rekindles itself, forcing you toward the next accomplishment. Your relentless need for achievement might not be logical. It might not even be focused. But it will always be with you. As an Achiever you must learn to live with this whisper of discontent. It does have its benefits. It brings you the energy you need to work long hours without burning out. It is the jolt you can always count on to get you started on new tasks, new challenges. It is the power supply that causes you to set the pace and define the levels of productivity for your work group. It is the theme that keeps you moving.

Learner

You love to learn. The subject matter that interests you most will be determined by your other themes and experiences, but whatever the subject, you will always be drawn to the process of learning. The process, more than the content or the result, is especially exciting for you. You are energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. The thrill of the first few facts, the early efforts to recite or practice what you have learned, the growing confidence of a skill mastered—this is the process that entices you. Your excitement leads you to engage in adult learning experiences—yoga or piano lessons or graduate classes. It enables you to thrive in dynamic work environments where you are asked to take on short project assignments and are expected to learn a lot about the new subject matter in a short period of time and then move on to the next one. This Learner theme does not necessarily mean that you seek to become the subject matter expert, or that you are striving for the respect that accompanies a professional or academic credential. The outcome of the learning is less significant than the “getting there.”

Relator

Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in fact, you may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends—but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a certain amount of risk—you might be taken advantage of—but you are willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you take them willingly.

Adaptability

You live in the moment. You don’t see the future as a fixed destination. Instead, you see it as a place that you create out of the choices that you make right now. And so you discover your future one choice at a time. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have plans. You probably do. But this theme of Adaptability does enable you to respond willingly to the demands of the moment even if they pull you away from your plans. Unlike some, you don’t resent sudden requests or unforeseen detours. You expect them. They are inevitable. Indeed, on some level you actually look forward to them. You are, at heart, a very flexible person who can stay productive when the demands of work are pulling you in many different directions at once.

Officially Taken

Filed under: Cheesy, Mushy Me,In a Relationship — khentutz @ 8:18 am

Oh Yes! You read it correctly. I am officially taken (again).  But happily taken if i may say. 🙂

After all the drama, the commotion with my previous dates (not in a bad way or sorts, just some kind of misunderstanding), someone finally swept me off my feet and made me feel special the best way he can. So after several, dates, chatting, talking and bonding, WE decided to be official. It was a mutual decision, we looked into the signs of having a relationship and we excitedly answered each one yes, then we looked at each other, smiled and we saw hearts and and kisses from each other’s eyes and the rest was history. Yun oh, cheesy at mushy ako. Am proud of it, and as part of being proud with my hubby, I am letting the world i live in know that i am now taken.

Yes, no vacancies for flirtation and sorts na. Sa mga kumarir at kinakarir ko e, friends na lang tayo. Mukhang hinde rin naman matutuloy sa isang romantic relationship mga pinagsamahan natin e. Talagang MGA ang term ko e, hehehe. We may have clicked and started a spark but not enough to get ourselves in a relationship.

Inspite of all the uncertainty and fear of getting hurt, my hubby and me bravely stepped one step forward to celebrate and enjoy what we share. However, in as much as i wanted to share my hubby name, i opted not to tell you to respect his privacy, although i can tell you his nickname: honey, hubby, mahal, tart, sweetie. hehe 😛

And in fairview to him, hubby was the only one who convinced my naughty gay community accounts to be tagged as taken and tell that i am in a relationship. Yun, mushy na kung mushy.

Hay gusto ko ikwento lahat ng dates namin and mga pinaggagawa before we ended up together. Wala naman x-rated pero tama na ang langit at mga ulap bilang saksi sa aming lambingan kwentuhan at masasayang sandali. Himala, taglish ang post ko, maybe, just maybe, love really moves in mysterious ways.

Hey Hubby, in case you are reading this now. i heart you :*

Bitter or Pathetic?

These two are choices when someone is falling in love or already in love. it’s either they become bitter of a relationship or patethic just to have a relationship. OR it’s just me. 😦

There are certain times whenever i am in a circumstance of people in love or on the act of falling in love even my dearest friends, i feel bitter. Disagreeing with their moments of love and instead say that they will fall apart soon and what they share will never last.  I would even suggest that, whenever the other party is not making their presence known, they are with somebody else. Whenever i see a couple looking good together, i say to myself that they are sweet for not but not in the long run. I dunno why am i so bitter at times? maybe because i haven’t had my share of a love that lasted for quite some time? I lost faith in love, that it conquers all? Or simply because i am jealous, that i am single? hmmm.

On the part of being pathetic, sometimes people in love would risk almost everything they had to keep their lovers on their side. So patethic that they (I) will focus their efforts and time on them to build their own world even if they sense their love is about to give up and is taken by somebody else. More pathetic by attributing every event to their partner and make these events as omens of their relationship.

 The only thing that is same for being bitter or pathetic is that you end up losing. Losing a chance to have the best possible future and love. Or losing your loving self and end up not having someone to be your partner, your loved one.
