What a tiring day this is. (what day isn’t?)

Since tuesday I’ve been nursing this slight headache that seemed to have been caused by my lack of sleep that day. Now I know that I shouldn’t force myself to wake up when I’m stress-sleeping (sleeping soundly because of stress; surprisingly, tuwing stressed lang ako nakakatulog nang mahimbing). What’s worse pa is sobrang hirap matulog nang mahimbing sa bahay, kasi at the strike of 3am gising na si mommy, then 5am si Ninay naman, then sunod-sunod na yun na kahit 1130 pa class ko magigising na’ko ng 7am. Okay, so sabihin nating dapat naman kasi maaga akong natutulog (early to bed early to rise tsaka 8 hours of sleep, remember!), pero mahirap din matulog nang maaga sa bahay, pinakamaaga ko na yata yung 9pm (na dati sobrang late na para sa’kin).

What’s sometimes frustrating pa is the phenomenon na tuwing dadalawin na’ko ng antok sa gabi, biglang lumalakas yung mga ambient noises — yung TV (I always leave the TV on timer, ‘di ako nakakatulog nang tahimik eh), yung pagbukas ng pinto, yung mga naglalakad sa labas, kaya madalas bigla na lang ako magigising. Haha nagreklamo ng tulog.

‘Di bale hopefully (cross fingers) next sem sa boarding house na’ko, and I won’t have anymore sleeping problems.

(Ugh, sakit pa din ng ulo ko, and medyo maingay yung mga tao dito sa computer shop so lalong sumasakit… argh… *puts on headphones and listens to Hush Puppies*)

This morning, I was complaining to a friend how I’ve been experiencing lots of physical pains lately (the headache na nga). Kasi meron akong recurring toothache na madalas sumasakit tapos biglang mawawala. Parang babae, haha! Joke lang girls. Ayun, tapos madami pa’kong kagat ng lamok sa paa kasi sobrang dami ng mosquitoes sa bahay. So tinext ko nga siya sabi ko nahihirapan na’ko, tapos nag-refer siya sa isang verse about experiencing trials. So na-enlighten naman ako, tapos naalala ko yun yung verse reference sa Our Daily Bread yesterday, tapos sabi nya:

Matuto ka naman.

Tapos ang nasabi ko na lang:

Oo nga, puro lang ako basa.

Totoo naman. Our Daily Bread na yata and book na sobrang religious ko sa pagbabasa. Araw-araw, walang mintis. But the problem is, I’ve devoted myself to this devotional yet I don’t live it out and apply it to my life as much as I apply principles I read from fiction novels into my everyday practice. That’s why right now I resolve to really strive hard to put into practice what I learn from it each day.



Sobrang edifying nung MassComm TA Prayer time namin kanina. Ang dami ko na namang na-realize, regarding how I live out being a Christian. Well, I believe naman I could get away with it kasi I’m really new to this thing and I’m learning, but that’s not an excuse. I really want to live Christ out in my life, to share it to people, pero mas kailangan ko pang ma-empower I believe. (Lord sorry if I’m reasoning out)

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
