safe

Clearly tells how useful it has been, now set aside for its purpose had been reached its limit.

 

A rusty safe sitting,

around the corner looming

with extreme gloominess

that nobody thinks exist

 

what have you been through

had they made good use of you

have you protected whats in you

or let others ravish you

shut up, it hurts

Shit,
there’s like rain but no rainbows,
you’re holding it back
but too much can’t be on hold anymore
You lose sight of reasons

And you are too angry to admit
it is wrong to be mad,
it is childish and pointless
eventually you’ll realize
it doesn’t have to be that fatal to hurt

You grind your teeth
and breathing harder
Tried watching porn
but nothing seems to matter

those on hold sadness and
on hold tears
will eventually flow
to cleanse vile soul

Cruel or not at all
but when it hurts, then it hurts
doesn’t have to be that big
you just have to cry after all.

The Craft of Writing: Interview with Michael Wallace (Part II)

R.

David Gaughran

Wolves_ebook smallerToday I have Part II of my interview with Michael Wallace – an author who has sold over 400,000 e-books since he started self-publishing in January 2011.

If you missed Part I yesterday, that’s here and make sure to read that first.

In this second installment, Michael talks about the kind of marketing that has worked for him, his advice for newer self-publishers, and his take on the 10,000 hours theory as it applies to the craft of writing.

We talked about author platform, but that’s only one aspect of marketing. While you don’t spend a huge amount of time blogging, or on Twitter or whatever, you do take an active role in promoting your books. What has been the most effective method, for you, in terms of reaching readers and growing your audience?

The two big things an author needs to do is to expand visibility and to…

LIVE IN

 

Once i was convinced that moving in with the person you wanna marry is actually natural. Since you’ll be spending the whole eternity with that one person, ne?

Guess im easily confronted by the fact that i don’t really last in a relationship, well, compared to my friends who can last years. Always thinking of settling, that’s me. Whenever im interested in a guy i felt the urge to know more of course, but i rarely get so involved so i always got nowhere.

And so this guy preached,

“So I thought, bakit kailangan ng practice mode? Ibig sabihin, pag sumablay kami, split na kami? Live like a couple minus the commitment? Pa’no pag nawala na yung magic? Goodbye na?

Kung kasal na, kasal na. Wala nang practice. I think that’s the real cowardice. Yung i-try muna natin kung it will work kasi takot! kayo na baka hindi maging successful ang outcome. Saan na napunta ang excitement ng buhay? Kaya nga kayo in-love, para sabay kayong humarap sa totoong buhay, sa hirap at ginahawa, di ba? Hindi yung pagpapraktisan muna ninyo para siguradong ginhawa lang.”

if you don’t have the balls, then don’t think of marriage.

 

First of all, marriage is built with trust. Honestly, love as i believed must survive the trial of time and distance. Though its love that was said to be the main reason of the union. You are going to trust each and every part of you to someone, your hopes and dreams, present and future, your soul and beliefs. You’ll entrust them to keep you comfortable with your own flaws and imperfectness, the defects you have, and in your weakness, you trust them to provide you the strength.

You see, moving together isn’t really a must. it is nothing but a mere excuse to enjoy a company, to cuddle, to have someone at the moment. There’s the blithe reality of not wanting to be together. Unsteady ans unsure. it is a declarative indirect statement that i’m looking for your flaws and we shall correct it or else we won’t be going anywhere.

 

 

Marriage is not just sacred, it is a dream. i hold great expectations of tomorrow and it always involve the dream of togetherness. I believe that i’m one miserable individual. For i carry lust after the one i like. No good in keeping words, i’m someone who will make you trust me and then it will be decided that i shall break your heart.

Chicken meatballs with peanut butter sauce (secret recipe club)

MUST TRY

Chef in disguise

Chicken meatballs with peanut butter sauce

It is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal for this month. If you are not familiar with the secret recipe club it is a group where you are assigned a blog every month and you get to explore that blog, choose a recipe, make it and blog about it on reveal day. It is a great way to find new blogs and try recipes.

This month I was assigned Lisa’s blog sweet as sugar cookies and as the name implies, Lisa has an amazing collection of sweet treats. I had bookmarked her double cinnamon sherbet   and her spiced oatmeal shortbread but I ended up choosing her spicy peanut butter meatballs because my kids love meatballs and peanut butter so this sounded like a win win recipe.

The recipe was a huge hit with the kids, even my husband who is not very fond of chinese recipes went back for…

Kasi ikaw yung wallpaper ko

Bumilis ang mga hakbang

ng sa harap ko’y dumaan

Nakilala ko kasi ang ‘yong likod

at buhok mong paboritong kong masdan

 

Tinangkang humabol

kahit walang balak sumabay

Saan ka kaya sasakay?

Para gusto kong magbabay

 

Kasi wala kang hawak

Napalunok na lang ako

iniisip ko lang, paano kaya

kung hawakan kong mga kamay mo

 

Mawiweirduhan ka siguro

‘huy anung ginagawa mo?’

Mas okay na siguro yon

Kesa sabihin mong ‘hu u?’
