There’s something out there.

Posted in Personal Life on April 19, 2012 by Stephen Velez

That I know was meant for me.

I believe in a future that I control. That only I can manipulate to be what I want it to be. 

And in that future, I want to see you, my friends, my family in it. And in that future, I want to be the person who never backs out, who takes every opportunity that comes his way, to be the person who dares.

There’s always something out there for everyone and each of those is specially designed for them. 

It’s been a long while. Might go back to writing after all. How’s being an editor/writer sound?

It was but no longer is.

This is actually cool. I agree with everything.

You feel as if you have missed out on a great deal that life had to offer and you go about trying to make up for past failures. Naturally at times you get depressed and you try to compensate for your ‘missed opportunities’ by living your life to the full. This is what, perhaps, may be described as ‘living with exaggerated intensity’. In this way you feel you can break the chains of the past and start again – and it could be that you are right.

You are trying to improve your position and prestige – be it in your life or in your workplace. Things are, at this time, OK – but they could be better. You feel that it is essential that you break down any opposition that could possibly lurk in the shadows. You know that you are quite capable of achieving this set goal because you have to and because it is essential to your self esteem.

You are prepared to establish a particular relationship that is being made available to you at this time. It could be a satisfactory liaison but there could be a certain amount of conflict involved -try to avoid direct confrontation at all costs.

All of your stress arises from lack of mutual understanding. The existing situation is unsatisfactory and you feel that you are unable to improve it without the help and co-operation of others. The need for understanding and for affectionate ‘give and take’ remains unsatisfied. You are experiencing the feeling of being ‘handcuffed’ – ‘tied down’ – ‘hindered’ – ‘restrained’ and this untenable situation is giving rise to impatience, irritability and the desire to escape from it all.

You really would like to be completely uninhibited – to let your hair down – but you are held back by your sense of logic and rationalilty, since you realise that by simple stupidity you could lose everything – whatever that may be.

Long Time No Post

Posted in Personal Life on December 7, 2008 by Stephen Velez

As in very long. The last post I posted here was during the last day of our quarterly exams for the second quarter of the first semester. Now it’s almost the end of the first quarter of the second semester! That was a long time of no posting! Too many events to say!!

1. I just like to say that I love the new dashboard. Good work, WordPress!

2. I already have a plurk account. Visit plurk here. It’s very fun. Try it.

3. I haven’t finished reading Pride and Prejudice. So much for fulfilling my promises and goals. Good thing my teacher gave us time this Christmas Vacation. Hopefully I finish reading it before January 4, 2009.

4. Merry Christmas!🙂

5. Happy New Year!

6. I became a choreographer for our Academic Week performance for Araling Panlipunan (History and Social Studies). We performed the Brazilian Samba. Boy, it was a hard dance to do! Sweat escapes your pores every twist of your body. It’s a good thing that my classmates were able to do the basics. If not, we’re dead. Unfortunately we did not win any place but I feel that we’re winners, because being able to study the dance in a short period of time is a great accomplishment. Go SDS!

7. I am also the director of the batch production Henry VIII – the dating game. It was hard to keep up with my hectic schedule for the Academic Week, practise here, practise there. Gah! Thank heaven’s it is already done with! The play itself was a success, mind you.

8. I am the costume designer and sounds man of our play for the Academic Week, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This time, it’s for English. It was one hell of a performance. Comments were good and nothing went wrong. It was truly fantastic.

9. I had fun in the Exerscience!

10. Our math quiz bee was a blast. I think. I was the choreographer for the ushers which was pathetic because we ended up with freestyle. LOL. Anyway, I helped ushering the contestants. It was themed as an auction. A great theme, but the audience don’t know how to auction. Too bad. It was supposed to be a fun quiz bee.

11. I was a contestant in the CCF quiz bee. Waah!! I didn’t prepare for it! Two days before the contest was it announced. I am so pissed. I didn’t pass the eliminations…

12. We didn’t win a single thing this Academic Week (as a team) but individuals got it. Yeah!

13. We had a play in Filipino – Sistema ni Propesor Tuko last friday, December 5, 2008. We got high scores and very good comments! 100, 96, 93 and an 87! Wow! Great scores, considering that the audience, fourth year students, loved it even! I was the costume designer, props man, set design, advertising manager (asst.), and program editor! WHOOO!!!

14. Exams are next week.

15. This is the last week for the third quarter. No classes on December 8 and December 1!! Whee!! No PE!

There you have it, guys.  15 events to tell you from the past few days where I did not post anything. Hope you get updated with these 15 events!!

*I really love the new dashboard.
