I'm Thinking of Snubbing this Year's Best Cebu Blog Awards

No. This isn't a click bait-titled post designed to lure in those who secretly hate the organization but were too coward to come out in the open because as soon as they do, they'll be bulldozed by the organization's supporters who'll likely be commenting as Anonymous in the safety of their rent-to-own residences. The thing is, it's been my 3rd try now and my fighting spirit is slowly feeling the strain. But will I give up? Definitely not.

After the disastrous first try back in 2012, in which the email needing a confirmation from the award-giving body went to my spam folder (discovered it on the day before the awarding.

The Real Meaning of Birthday According to Merriam-Webster

Birthday is defined as; a. the day when someone was born or the anniversary of that day; b. the day when something began.

The latter struck a chord in my melancholy-heavy heart. I view birthdays as special for the reason I was the fastest of all sperm cells to reach the outside world. Mother Nature has chosen me and my existence has began. But am I just another 'something' waiting to just exist? Looking back and with a smile, I think I'm gonna be that someone who lived.

Before I get lost in this guest-speaker-at-your-niece's-graduation reminiscing, it has become a habit of mine to look back just to get a sense of how far I've come. And in times of winning, to keep my feet on the ground. I'm an air sign and if left unchecked, I sometimes act like Avatar Aang.

It's my birthday, so let me preach about these four things today:

Great Humor Has Sarcasm in it
15 years ago I swore that I will be greatest friend there is, always at my friend's service and in times of sadness, become that light that would give them hope against the lure of suicide. Didn't happen.



15 Things Only Prepaid Subscribers Will Understand

Like countless prepaid subscribers in this country, I hate receiving texts especially when they're from marketers who are left with ZERO dignity in doing such a monstrous act. Aside from the unnecessary nuisances, it is time consuming deleting spam messages in the inbox.

Being a prepaid subscriber has its pros and cons. These are the other things that only this highly-sought-after-by-vulture-marketers group will understand:

1. When you discovered there's actually a thing such as a post-paid plan.
What is that? Like a post-workout meal?
