If I get this… I can be my own barrista! I could then make cappuccinos to my liking! Plus, as you see above, it’s extremely easy to make espresso and it’s cheaper than those huge espresso making machines, like the ones you see in Starbucks.

I had some trouble deciding which event I wanted to share, and it came down to two. It was either the time my father left or the time when we were thrown out of our house. But I figured that it would be better to talk about my father and his departure from this family.
So please bear with me because I haven’t talked about this to an open crowd, in fact I think only three of my friends know the full details, at any rate…
The year was 2009 on the month of April. I was home alone watching TV when I heard the door open downstairs. I thought to myself “Is that mom or dad? They’re rather early”. I went back to watching TV, not minding what was going on downstairs. After a few minutes I heard heavy footsteps rise from the stairwell, “oh, it’s dad” I thought. I kept watching TV.
He went up to me and gave me a kiss on the head; I wiped my forehead and ignored him. “I’m gonna take a shower first and I need to talk to you, okay?” he said. At that point I knew something was up, “okay”. Continue reading “A Problem That You Have Had (30 Day Challenge, day 18)”
If there was one thing I was really proud of… I guess it would be my skills as a photographer. I only have a Nikon D60 with a 18-55mm kit lens and a 55-200mm kit lens, SB-600 and a third-party battery grip, BUT I still manage to take decent photographs. I don’t use any software except iPhoto (just to correct the colour, or to make it ). Here are some pictures I think that look great:
I love to blog; I am addicted to it! But not to the extent that I can’t live without it :P If you are as addicted as I am, you would know how it feels when you see those statistical data (viewer counts) on your Dashboard, assuming that you’re on WordPress lol! I log in everyday to see how much of my content has been read, what’s been read and how frequently it’s been read. Then from what I learn from the data, I can partially see what I’m gonna write for my next blog entry. But another thing I noticed was the amount readers I’ve been gained over the years.
Before I joined the PostAWeek, my reader count have always been below ten each day. Now however, I’m getting at least 10 per day and at most I get 70 a day! That may not sound much to you, but getting 70 people to read about your opinions, your rants, your problems about life is something that I actually find incredible.
I now feel really pumped up to write more and probably in three years time I’ll be getting triple-digit-viewer-counts :D
There is one thing that I always regret doing and I’ve been regretting it for about 6 years now I guess? I always thought “what if I never fucked up in High School? What if I actually took my academics seriously?” If you don’t know the history of my high school education… I graduated to high school in Lourdes School of Mandaluyong. I got held back a year there, then after 4 years I got expelled. I went to HSP (kinda like home school, kinda) and I spent two more years there, which shouldn’t have happened since I was only supposed to spend one year then I’d be off to college. But unexpected things happen Continue reading “Something You Always think “What If…” About (30 day Challenge, day 16)”
