Give me my space, please!

God has a funny way of rebuking me each time I harbor negative feelings, particularly anger. I have realized that each time I’m cheesed off with someone or something, I start to feel the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy all over again. The tingling sensations on my scalp, arms, and legs would return. It’s like I’m being told quietly but firmly: “Face the fact that you are upset, then deal with the person or situation maturely, rationally, with wisdom. If you have something to do with it, admit it and chastise yourself as well.” Lately, I seem to be always catching myself resisting the urge to bite off the head of heavyset individuals that would happen to sit next to me in a public transportation. You see, I am that kind of person who values her space so much and is also careful not to invade one’s personal space. Hence, as I take my seat in a public vehicle, the first thing I would do is calculate how much space my fellow passengers and I are …

Full-time mommy gets a new full-time home-based job

I got a phone call at around 6 am today, inviting me to a virtual conference with prospective clients/employers. Two hours later, I found myself online at Skype, sharing things about my employment background, etc. To make it short, I just got hired. I’ll be working on a new account starting next week. I was thrilled to hear it, especially that I did not expect it at all. In fact, all I could think of during the call was to go back to bed. But, as always, I’m open to both new challenges and the idea of getting an extra income. However, a nagging voice tells me that it might not work out again, like my last job, for the same reason: although it’s home-based, it’s still a full-time job and I might get so cranky again, put my health in line, and miss spending time with my girls so much. Not to mention lose focus on my graduate studies. Since God brought me to it, however, I’d like to think that every thing will turn out well. After all, I’ve been …

Unfriended and unfollowed

I have just started to enjoy Twitter lately. Just like this blog, I’ve had my Twitter account for two to three years now, but it has always been privately tucked away until recently. I have noticed that some of the news items aired on TV and even those written on the Net and newspapers were actually tweets of some famous personalities and renowned institutions, so I have revived my own account and allowed my tweeps to inform me of the latest news and amuse me as well. While I think of tweeting and FB-ing as harmless activities, my stand on this was challenged when the pastor talked about selfishness yesterday and mentioned Twitter and Facebook. Indeed, how egoistic can a person be that he would want to be followed? It also reminded me of various tweets that I have read from different tweepers a few days ago: I have unfollowed you because you did not follow me back. Follow me… I do follow back. You are free to unfollow me anytime (after an unpleasant exchange of ideas with another follower). And …
