The wikipedia article on it defines “stress” as the consequence of the failure to adapt to change. Stress happens when two opposing forces interact with each other and the element in the middle gets all the brunt of the collision.  When something seems to be right and it turns out to be totally wrong, that, well, is considered stress.

I am stress personified for the past few days.  I couldn’t fully explain why, or how, it happened, but one thing could possibly be the source:  Thesis.  Grrrr.  I never knew thesis could be this stressful.  Especially if you factor a lot of things in.  Hay.  I hope I can sit somewhere remote, like an old house with a porch in the desert, with extended rooms and recreational spots and elegant patio furniture covers, where I can inhale the sand-filled air and chillax for a moment, taking everything in.

I badly need a vacation.  Please?  Pretty please?

This is a sloppy post which should fill in the gaps of my blog absence.  Just to let you know I’m still here, even if I know you’re not there anymore (drama!).

    Omg JM! stressed ka na nga talaga! na-mali mo pa yung spelling ng “desert”….isang “s” lang po kasi unless gusto mong nasa ibabaw ng cake o ice cream and old house mo. hehe.

    anyway, my heart goes out to you and marian………im sure pinag-hirapan nyo nang bonggang-bongga yung thesis proposal nyo only for it to be rejected by “the forces that be” sa ating “beloved” department.

    pero im sure the two of you will be able to work it out and make things FIERCE in the end. (mag-Tyra Banks ba?)

    btw, you like to inhale sand-filled air? uhm, i bet your lungs won’t like that friend……..hehehehe.

    kaya mo yan JM! Keep it POSITIVE! 🙂

    Stress as the consequence of the failure to adapt to change. Hmm… I suddenly recalled yung one of the most valuable and useful lessons na im trying to incorporate din.

    Sabi nung kakilala ko, for knowledge acquistion and change one has to ADAPT first before you could ADOPT and then ADEPT. 😀

    Hi! magvitamins ka na lang to minimize the stress. By the way, talking about vitamins, plug muna ako ha!? we have an advertiser who came in our office offering us some boxes of vitamins. They want us to distribute all these vitamins to those bloggers who are willing to make some blogs about this one, they will give this for free only that if you will commit to make a blog about it. The nutri time vitamins and they have also vitamins for women the tofupill.
