  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

jorge

in fairness, the post was rather cute :)

Gigi

Hi Jorge - Haha, I'll take that as a compliment; after visiting your blog, it's apparent you're completely straightforward and honest. :) Thanks for stopping by!

mell

i'll out do you yet jorge;the post was cute and nice! hmmmmm that was not too funny...

gigi,

wow, yet another exquisite peek inside you. quite a jungle safari you got in there... :D

melissa

Cute is way way better.

Gigi

Mell - Jungle safari eh? Now I have the soundtrack of the "Lion King" running through my mind this morning. :)

Melissa - Yes, most definitely!

gary

It was cute with style.

Gigi

Was? What do you mean "was?" :)
OK, I'll accept that anyway Gary -- still beats "never was," I suppose.

Dave

Hi Gigi, I just camr across your blog and i was immediately attracted to your SOUNDTRACK collection. Yes, were both still hooked on the 80's. This are the best times for the Martial-law babies! I'm adding you to my favorite blog-sites!

Dave

I just wanna share:
1. SPANDAU - Always been anybody's favorite if he had a chance to listen to just 1 album. Gold is my favorite.
2.M.BIANCO - This is where i 1st listen to Basia.
3.J.TAYLOR - I began to appreciate him way back in '76 when i started to learn guitar. He's every acoustic artist's philosopher.
4.5th DIMENSION - Aquarius & Up-up(away) are very nostalgic. Listen to D' ASSOCIATIONS' Never my love!

Hope to get in touch!

Gigi

Hi Dave!
I love it whenever I meet people who have strong memories or emotional connections to the same music that move me. Although there's nothing like '80s music (nothing really sounds like it, before or after), I'm quite attached to the '70s singer/songwriters. Like I keep saying, I skipped listening to children's songs and went straight to Carole King, James Taylor, David Gates, Burt Bacharach, and Carly Simon. When I'm at a karaoke joint with friends, I always find I know the 70s hits the best (and most of the time, I don't need to peek at the lyrics too!).

Thanks for stopping by; you've got an inspirational blog there, btw. :)

Dave

I used to own/operate a sports inspired restobar back in my hometown (Cagayan de Oro)for 5 years untill the Asian crisis hit me in 2000. So i have to close shop and move up to Cebu. That was the time when i hoarded a lot of albums. I learned searching for hard to find CDs of the 60s (mostly collections of various artists)in Quiapo, DV-Soria, Makati & Greenbelt. That's where i foumd Vic Damone, NK Cole, Sinatra,F. Mercer, F. Astaire,etc. Recently, I've been collecting MP3's for chilling out like Cafe' Del Mar collection, Tito Fuente, Starbucks collection, etc. Wow! there's so much to talk but very little time. I wonder what your kids are listening. . . . Nora Jones, perhaps!

  • LISTEN: "Pluto" by Chamsom

    Boong-

    I don't have to understand Korean to love this song, although I think it's about a person who was in a rocky relationship that ended but still feels deeply for her former lover and is feeling lonely tonight. "You're like a little star that's far away from me and keeps disappearing." I suppose the title -- Pluto used to be known as the ninth planet from the sun but now isn't even considered one -- might provide a bit more context to the song's meaning. Spotify
