I just had the chance to check my email again and saw the prompt for the weekly photo challenge, I told myself this should be easy since I am a “self-proclaimed” narcissist, even had a lot of blog entries of me taking a lot of “selfie” pics , or what I call my Joycessist moments. ๐Ÿ˜€

Back to December

Hello everyone! I know we’re all positively looking at the new year ahead of us, well it’s mid-month already I’m sure you guys have accomplished a lot of things, teehihi.

Me, in such a big dilemma. I used to love my job. It used to be so much fun, stress and “burnout” are terms that I rarely use – in fact it’s just now that I’m describing my work life as such. Its making me sad because I’m not use to these emotions towards my work – I know (probably telling myself everyday) that change is inevitable. Its something that I must learn to accept, but some things are so difficult to accept. I’ve been reading motivational articles everyday to help me get through – I’m just glad that most of the articles I’m reading are helpful enough – I know that I’m finding it hard to accept things because it doesn’t go my way…I think of it as an obstacle that I don’t want to deal with instead of a “challenge” that I must overcome.

So now I’m starting to let go of the negative vibes and trying my best to look for positive things that’ll make me feel good – but I am considering a change in career.

How I wish I could tell you guys more about my job – but I’d rather share the things we did last month that ended my/our year with a blast!


My 20-something birthday, oh geez not getting any younger ๐Ÿ˜€


– gift from my sweethubs, 2014 Kitty Planner , which I’m loving so much right now, because it is so colorful , perfect for planning events ๐Ÿ˜€ and for remembering “events” to celebrate.


– I’m wearing the “arm-candies” that my sister gave me as a gift.


– the following day (Saturday) I had lunch with my girlfriends, Mimi and Z.

Ever since I started working, I’ve been celebrating my birthday at work, which is actually what I prefer. But this time, it’s different. I chose to celebrate it with the closest people in my heart. Just a simple celebration – but deep inside, I’m jumping for joy because I am surrounded with good,fun loving people, I am thankful for this life that I have – work is the only challenge I have, I can ย do this!

sisterly love

Hello everyone! Last month my sister celebrated her 27th birthday, can’t believe how we’ve grown up like this…it feels like it was just yesterday when we were fighting over our toys and we could here Mother saying “nag-aaway na naman kayo, dadalawa na ngalang kayo, away pa kayo ng away” – this scenario is happening like everyday, but of course it decreases when we were in high school and college. I can say that she’s a “woman” now that she got a baby, who looks like me ๐Ÿ˜€ haha. I’ve noticed a lot of changes in her after she gave birth…well as for me, I’m still a kid although I am older than her, my decisions or actions are still childlike…err, I don’t know why.

Anyways, it’s been a while since we played in front of the camera, thanks to her bf who was a playful but annoying photographer.


Me and Sister, holding our picture when we were younger. The pic was taken in front of our house, I think I was 4 yrs old and she was 3.


With our little Christmas tree, but we’ve change our tree, she bought a bigger one ๐Ÿ˜€




~ her boyfriend’s being funny.


~ got us laughing ๐Ÿ˜€


โ™ฅ love our floral dress ๐Ÿ˜€


~ wasn’t ready for a shot, not smiling yet.

So we went out and this is the same spot as we had it on our picture.






~ we tried to imitate our look/pose on our picture but we just can’t, she’s sooo taller than me.


~ i look taller here, that’s because I’m stepping on my laundry stool ๐Ÿ˜€


~ this is the closes that we could get ~





~ LOL ~


~ Glad you had a happy celebration, as always I’m wishing you more birthdays to come, healthy life not just for you but for baby Eljay as well.

You guys pretty much have an idea how we are now as sisters, we used to fight every freaking day, then we learned how to borrow clothes from each other, be friends with the other’s friends, liked the same band or type of music – it’s hard to imagine my life without her, after all she’s my one and only sister…

I’ve read a few blog posts with the same title, it’s nice knowing their stories too.

Out of Your Reach

In response to Daily Prompt, I only get to do this once in a blue moon, teehihi.

Although I did promise myself to take blogging more seriously, and again I have my fingers crossed on that. I am going through some changes (actually a lot). I have listed down the things that I have to keep doing and the things that I have to let go, got some major decisions to do in the next few weeks & thinking about it, is actually exhausting – oh, nuff of that! I will probably share more about it some other day. Let’s move on.

One thing that I really really wanted to have,like I felt like dying when I was ย a kid because I know that my Mum will never ever get to afford to get me one – and I never did.

That my friend is…



*credits to the owner, I just googled the pic*

Back when I was in grade school, my cousins and some of our friends (I think) got this, me and my sister never had one, we only got the chance to play this at our cousin’s house.

Back then: This is like the coolest game ever! The greatest invention! ย I think Super Mario got famous because of this, well that’s the only game I got to play. I remember the times when we have to blow that little thing you put on if the games is kinda acting up. Ha! Those were the days.

But we got barbie dolls, kitchen set, all the other girly stuff but not this ๐Ÿ˜€

Feels good sharing this ๐Ÿ™‚


Honesty Challenge : Day 28

Day 28: What would you do if you found out the person you like was in a relationship?ย 

Nothing ๐Ÿ˜€ , it happened several times, I’m not the one who will ruin someone else’s relationship and I’m sure that I don’t want to ruin mine :D.

Besides whatever I felt is more of like a physical attraction, nothing more.



Back to Challenges: Honesty Challenge : 27

Now I finally had the time to do this again…

Day 27: Ever cheated on someone?

Well not really cheated, err, somewhat.

What happened is, I fell in love with another guy while I was in a relationship (this was sooooo long time ago), the relationship was “on the rocks”, and this other guy made me realize my worth, I thought the right thing to do then is to reconcile with my BF, clear things up and really try to work it out, but it didn’t.

And I’m glad it didn’t, apparently with the other guy, well his life is too complicated and I know that I was such a naive (about love) at that time and I thought that the right thing to do is to just let go of my feelings for the other guy,so we were never in an “official relationship” ย although we went out several times…and although he was saying that I am special to him and I think I felt the same way…(I guess that’s because were born on the same day) neither of us decided to make it “officially US”, you get what I mean right?

And I’m also glad that I learned how to forget about my feelings for him, although it took few years…it’s fine. I found the love of my life and I’m happy with what I have.

I don’t think I can ever cheat on someone that I love. I know how it hurts because my mom experienced it, and it wasn’t such a nice thing to see.
