aftermath

when the euphoria fades, that's when you are pushed back to reality and have to face the consequences of your action...

im not saying i regret joining the "if my life were a book" contest in phil star. that's my first byline in a major newspaper ( i didn't write for youngblood when i was younger) and hey, i will receive 5K worth of gift certificate in national bookstore. but then, i have to accept that now, people knew what really happened between me and sb.

***
hindi ko alam na marami pala akong kakilalang nagbabasa ng phil star. my former boss texted me to say that she saw my article. she then called me up and said, "so that's what happened to you pala. i didn't know." my former boss and i haven't talked personally for almost a year now.

this week, i bumped into someone from our sister company. i wasn't aware she knew my name but she said that she read my article and she brought the newspaper to their office to let the others read it. so ngayon kapag nakakasalubong ko mga taga kompanyang iyun sa CR, sinasabi nila na nabasa daw nila iyong sinulat ko.

kanina lang, one of the managers called me to say that she read my article. tinanong pa nga ako kung gusto ko i-lagay sa company newsletter namin ang article. ngek. wala na talaga akong mukhang ihaharap sa mga managers na nakakausap ko dito. pero sige na nga, paalis na rin naman ako.

so now a lot of people know that i was dumped. oh well...

pero oks lang. really. im not ashamed to say it. sabi ko nga dun sa sinulat ko, everyone gets dumped. even the smartest and strongest. ganyan talaga...

mukhang di tuloy ang baguio namin dahil sa isang magandang balita na dumating sa akin ngayon lang. out of the 80 aspirants, kasama ako sa 36 na nakuha sa isang workshop. ang masaya nito, kaklase ko si claring at si rose. o di ba, parang college uli. hehehe

tandang-tanda ko pa, three years ago din nung napasali ako sa workshop ng abs-cbn at ng star cinema. :) dun ko nakilala at naging kaibigan si mama lhen, pati na rin sina fudge, alma, atbp.

excited na ako! kahit pa buong weekends ng september at october ang kakainin nito. oks lang. worth it naman.

ready for a fall ang paulit-ulit na tumutugtog ngayon sa player ko. hmmm... wala lang *ngiti* share ko lang ang lyrics...

Ready For A Fall - P.J. Olsson

You sit there in my shadows
And you call it your relief
Don't be the one with bad eyes for
The things that I could see
Don't give me that

The darkness has no armor
Need protection from the air
High hopes through time passing
When I see I want you there

I can't believe
You're the one for me
If it was this easy to find you
I should be ready for a fall
I should be ready for a fall

Now my wonders rally
Around the person I once was
Like a bird that I've been helping
Hope you're healed and strong
You never know when you might have to fly

Where will you go after me
Where will you go after I set you free
And I don't know you from a page in my book
Though I should
Though I should

I can't believe
You're the one for me
If it was this easy to find you
I should be ready for a fall
I should be ready for a fall
I should be ready for a fall

Where will you go after me
Where will you go after I set you free
And I don't know you from a page in my book
Though I should
