Stalling, procrastinating, coming up with excuses why you should not get to work. “I just wanna check my email for 5 minutes, I swear”, and before you know it an hour has passed. Watching Youtube videos, reading your favorite blogs, sitting on Facebook. It is so easy to become distracted on the internet.
Resist the temptation of procrastinating.
Motivate yourself with the goal of achieving something.
Sit down and get to work.
Focus and dedicated your attention to your work for a few hours.
Rinse, wash and repeat.
the question is... does this apply to periods when everybody's preoccupied with a lot of things (read: christmas shopping) other than work? hehehehe! misa de gallo has already started, today's the second night, but still... a lot of writing and reviewing to do. hard to get started and focused when you still haven't figured out what kinds of presents to buy since the usual list has not been done at all. of course, most if not all peeps are only focused on christmas parties, making the almost nightly troop to the malls or scouring the best tiangges in town. aside from the idc ph xmas dinner, i haven't been going to the malls yet! tomorrow, we still have the last of our annual kris kringle idc ph style - something paradoxical! and guess what, i still don't have any idea on what to buy... i really need to get it going tonight.

what shocked me was the brazen attack, in broad daylight and in major provincial highway. 100 armed men means that the perpetrators are under the influence of a powerful mastermind that could easily swat any would-be rivals. the victims were shot at close range, some of the women were raped, mutilated and tortured in the most macabre manner. most of victims are nearly unidentifiable if not for their clothes and other belongings found in the crime scene. to me, this could only be done by someone who didn't have any humane side. vice mayor mangudadatu said that:

1. Never judge a person by their laundry.
2. When in doubt, give yourself a time out...count to 30 seconds and ask
yourself " Will it really matter ____ years from now?"

- Cagbalete Island -- Mauban, Quezon.
- Sumilon Island -- Cebu.
- Palawan -- Puerto Princesa's Honda Bay; El Nido; Taytay and Coron.
- Bantayan Island
i've been to dumaguete, siquijor, bantayan, boracay, panglao in bohol, and el nido, honda bay and coron in palawan. but based on the above list, a lot are still waiting to be discovered! with climate change, next year's trip should be well spent during the first 4 months of the year. rains now start to pour in may. there's a long weekend this november, so there's a good chance that we can sneak in to cagbalete in quezon, since this is the nearest, only 3 hours travel from manila. i hope that all typhoon ramil will be the last of his kin this year. biyahe tayo!

'wag na sanang dumawdaw sa ngalan ng bayanihan kundi rin lang taos-puso ang pagtulong.
