I Am Thankful For…

Nothing changed. I still have colds. The coughing lessened though and somehow I am thankful for that.

Talking about something to be thankful about, I have lots. Yes, my life ain’t particularly sunny at all times but it ain’t dark clouds and rain as well.

Here are things I am thankful about:

(1) My parents – I haven’t been exactly the greatest son they would have wanted to have but amidst that, they still love me. I know that as a fact. My mom would always send me bible verses (being the religious woman that she is) and would always say how she and papa love me… and my siblings of course. I have nothing to complain really.

(2) My job – Although I hate my job, I am still thankful I have one. You see, a lot of people are jobless and basing it from experience it is really hard to get one nowadays.

(3 My education – I am happy I graduated from the premiere university of the country. The best days of life. I am happy I met my friends, real cool professors and the opportunities the school have provided me. The school also shed light to who I really am. GAY. Hahaha. You see, it was in college when I finally FULLY accepted that I am gay and that there’s nothing wrong with being one. Thanks to Marj, my blockmate.

(4) My friends – Have lots of them from all places, online and otherwise. They give me hope and strength when I need it the most, they are just there even if I am not exactly the bestest friend one can have and most of all, they let me be ME, no questions asked. And of course, those friends include you guys! A dosage of insanity from you everyday is just awesome!

(5) Me being GAY - Yes. Believe it or not I am thankful and really happy that I am gay. Don’t you? Why hide under a cloak of bisexuality when you can be all out? I mean, there is definitely nothing wrong with being gay. Everytime someone asks me how I am I always tell them Ito, bading pa rin.. or Ito, virgin pa rin… Accepting that you are gay doesn’t make you less human. Being gay is being happy with who you really are…

(6) And lastly for that someone above - Yes. I still believe that there is someone more powerful than us. It may be God or what-have-you but without faith, we are nothing. It’s our faith that makes us bear the unbearable, believe the unbelievable and take the pain of this sad, bitter earth. I don’t go to church though. Institutions such as the church puts too much restrictions on how you live your life. And I don’t want to be restricted. I can decide on my own, thank you. And I think I am capable of knowing what is right from wrong. But that’s a diff story.

And oh, I almost forgot, BLOGGER. I am thankful for the free and amazing service. Wahehehe…

So how about you? What are you thankful for?


  • I'm thankful for bloggers like you Brew! So that I have something to read all the time and feel like I'm part of someone's life. Hehehe. :D

    And also for making me think about the things I'm supposed to be thankful for.

    CHEERS! :D

  • Like you, I also hate my job.

    Pero I'm still thankful for it.

    Believe it or not, I'm thankful for all the hardships that "tested" (and currently testing) me and my family, without them, hindi kami ganito ka-close.

    At hindi rin ako ganito ka-sipag. Haha!

    Anyway, hindi ako thankful sa Blogger. Basta, nakaka-asar minsan. Haha!

2010 - Wow! I can't believe this blog is already 4 years old! I would like to thank everyone has been so nice to me and my blog. I am really happy that there are people out there who can relate to my life.

January 24, 2010 - I met this guy online who inspired me to write/blog again. To Sal, thank you for the inspiration. I owe you one.

I am a frustrated artist who finds refuge in bitterness and solitude. Angst is what I speak and love is what I hide. I never want to be seen naked for in nakedness there is truth and truth I am afraid of. Reality never seems to be fair, life in fact is iniquitous.

I like to put up a facade like a masked man in a party. I like to exude and air of mystery and fear. For in fear I earn respect and respect I treasure.

I like to play God once in a while, controlling the people who surround me. I love to twist emotions and bring out the insides.

I have found love but it left me suddenly for reasons until now I do not understand. He pierced right through everything that is me and left a broken arrow in my heart. But I let that happen because I loved him so sincerely. If there was a time I really loved someone, it would be that time. He rocked my world; sadly, he rocked me to my death.
