My life’s principles (not limited).

  • Walk fast if alone, slowly when with company. Moingon sila rahima and friends nga ako daw ang pinakahinay maglakaw, maybe yes. Isa sa akong principles in life is ang pagenjoy sa walk if naa koe kuyog and if wala mi nagrush to destination. Pero mind you, if I’m alone, paspas tawn kaayo ko molakaw, kanang fast nga keber na sa mga taw sa paligid, focused ko sa akong goal.
  • Don’t smell thy food. Ang unang tumitikim ay ang mata hindi ang ilong. Para nako rude if simhoton ang food nga naa na sa spoon.
  • Don’t lingi sa mga sitsit. I have a name and I believe iro ray sitsitan. And also, uwaw if dili ikaw ang gisitsitan, maong never jud ko molingi, labi nag ako ra isa.
  • Stop when in doubt. Naexplain na ni nako sa akong other entry. 
  • Sinsilyo lang sa buntag. I always prepare coins sa buntag. Dili na ko feel mostorya man gud sa morning. Windang mode pa ko ana. And maglagot ko sa other pasahero nga moplete ug tibook sa buntag, murag nanadja jud sa driver. I know the feeling gud kay nagdriver baya akong father sa una sa among jeep nga gibaligya na and i experience nga magconductor pero sa frontseat ra ko.
  • Closer to the Driver. Dili man ko arti modawat ug palihog nga pliti so I keep close sa driver, or tunga. These positions are safer than the one in the rear end. I heard stories nga naay snatcher ug BAG! sa pinakaend nga part sa jeep na usually mahitabo.
  • Friendly but cautious. Never be afraid to talk to people pero dapat careful. Mao nang oks ra ko ug mg acquaintance parties. Or stranger FC talks.
  • Play the game. If I feel that I’m being used then okay fine, maggamitan tayo.
  • Nobody is a know-it-all. I ain’t nothing to prove to anyone so I don’t get pretty insecure if a friend is obviously more intelligent than I am.
  • Smile with matching “ah” if wala kasabot. There will always be a chance to clarify things out. So if naay nagexplain then nag-confirm if kasabot ko and.. wlaa ko kasabot. I smile lang. And there are chances pud nga basta mosmile ra ko, meaning wala ko naminaw with intent to understand.
  • Never be afraid to repeat. Naa koe behaviour sa chat nga basta naay istorya nako or itogon kay akong ginarepeat. Just for confirmation. Lisod nang magka-misunderstanding ta.
  • Be on time. Napurga naman gud ko ani. Highschool pa lang si Acha jud akong friend nga maturingang miss late. Manawag pa mi sa ilaha, natulog pa. Nig abot niya kay todo sorry. Pero bff mi ni Acha. Isa sha sa mga nagbigay kulay sa akong mga hs and future life. My point is, all my life naa jud koe friend nga ang ani. Anad na ko. Once, I tried na to be like them. To be always late. Be filipino and practice filipino time. I believe filipino time is not being late, it is putting yourself busy in time when you should already be somewhere else. Filipino time is procrastination.
  • Be a good and responsible liar. I know how to lie with intentions of really lying and to lie with intentions of being caught. And sometimes a lie become so intense that it feels real already. Sorry to my family, bakakon inyong anak. 🙂
  • Church is not a place of good people. Church is not heaven. I often keep myself from the church kay i thought puro sila mga good people and i feel that i don’t belong. But pagdako nako I realized nga church is not like that. Mas daghan ug issues ang mga tao sa church. Prayer meeting nga puros manglibak. Retreat nga puros igat-igat. Praise and worship nga by mouth only. Speakers for donation. Testimonial as bragging rights. Right now, I believe that God is inside me. My heart is my church.
  • Keep away from negativity. I always has been the yes man. Pero i realized nga okay ra mag-no. And choosing friends is okay. If my so-called friends’ company makes me feel insecure or stupid, then it is okay to let go of the relationship. I don’t have to torture myself.
  • Don’t let others bring you down. The world is full of judging eyes. I learn the hard way nga I am the only person who can tell my worth. Whether Im fat, dark skin, pimpled face, thin, big eyes, hairy…. My outer appearance doesn’t define me.  And I don’t want to be with friends who often point out my insecurities.
  • Treasure items. I have a box at home with some items that bring back precious memories. I still got the ribbons from my elementary and hs diploma. I still had all my IDs from 1st year hs to 4th.  I have stones from the beaches I had been. I still have the raw draft of my valedictory address. I still have the small gifts from people I consider important way back in elementary until today.
  • More Gratitude. I want to be appreciated, the same reason why I always appreciate other people. Dili ko makalimot magthank you, magsmile, to make everyone around happy. I feel good when someone notices my efforts. It makes me strive for more, pero kung dili gani iappreciate akong mga effort and work output, well mawad-an kog gana and mobati na akong trinabaho-an.
  • Cellphones don’t reflect my life’s status. Ang nindot nga cellphone dili basehan sa imong personalidad ug kinatatayuan sa buhay. Nindot tood kag cellphone pero utang. Nindot tood kag cellphone pero walay load. Nindot tood kag cellphone pero dili kakatxt sa jeep. I realized na ang cellphone has become someones way to judge people. One time, niadto kog lilo-an sa bday sa akong classmate. Basta magligaliw gani ko, akong ginadala nga cellphone kay kanang walay camera, kanang tipong kung mahold-up ko sa akong laag kay okay give it dayon. Pero niana akong friend, oe kabati gud nimo ug cellphone, dili ka ganahan ug naay camera? naa naman ta kay trabaho. Nakatawa lang ko. Right now, dili naman ko mainganyo ug cellphone oe. ambot ngano.
  • Ang kabit ay hindi ang mere salarin. Though simang ni sha pero in trend man gud kaayo ang kabit kabit karon. My point is that, dili lang ang kabit ang naay sala. Sala pud sa lalaki. Sala sa bigaon nga lalaki.
  • Type hard. Basta mafeel gani nako nga gauros-uros na akong emotion sa akong gisuwat, unknowingly kusog na kaayo akon pagpress sa keyboards and badlongon nalang ko sa akong tupad.
  • Don’t be afraid to use someone’s useless things. Di man ko maarte. Oks ra kaayo ko mogamit ug mga butang nga ihatag from other people as long nga it’s still usable. Ika nga nila, one’s garbage is someone else’s treasure. 🙂

Yehay.
