maybe i've done all i could. maybe i haven't. i need to think things over -- immensely. and probably for the first time i don't need anyone to listen. all i need is ME. i need to listen to myself...what my heart and mind say.

perhaps we can't grasp the real meaning of compromise. and until we can, or at least try to, we will continue to struggle.

_got cheeks?_

my boyfriend and i agreed that i should gain a little weight that will hopefully give me some cheeks. chubby cheeks like when i was six years old (see picture below)?

love, pag nagpataba naman kasi ako ngayon hindi na cute eh. :P nung 6 ako medyo papasa pa akong cute diba? :P

never have i imagined that things would almost always be this way. all this chasing is draining my energy. i get tired too, you know.

once in a while i also need to feel that i'm important. wanted. needed.

my younger brother has followed my footsteps and enrolled in a master's program in UP. the thing is, i may be the one to follow his footsteps if he gets to finish his thesis before i do. he only has 20 something units while i have 40 something, and i'm a part time student at that because i'm working (ok, was working). the serious writing mode i was supposed to be in last semester didn't happen because of a work project i did in Turkey. i'm afraid that the same thing will happen once i get back to work. as much as i'd like to concentrate on my thesis full time, i really can't afford to be jobless because thesis writing will also cost me money. i have no choice but to work and study at the same time. it also doesn't help that the professors i'd like to get as advisers are all retiring. :(

i really still have a year to go to finish my thesis on time. but i doubt if one year is enough. the only thing that encourages me to write my thesis is my friend's constant encouragement. he keeps telling me that all those years of studying, writing and presenting reports, producing baby theses, writing curriculum plans, would all be worthless if we give up now.

it will take me lots of time, effort and brains to finish my thesis. and i have to work on all three. :P but i WILL do it.

i will get that elusive diploma. i have to finish my MA if i still want to pursue a Ph.D later on.

so help me God.

6 days of sun worshipping in Boracay was very much fun. Now I'm back to reality. Harsh reality? :/ Oh well, I'll deal with it.

In the meantime, let me share with you our pictures from Boracay. Preview photos are at A Glimpse of Boracay 2008

The rest of the albums are found at Kaleine's Photos

Enjoy viewing and enjoy the rest of the summer! :)
