Oh yeah, because I’m the jet setter that I am (as if!) I just spent two days in Manila, and here I am again, somewhere else. This time was for work though, but since we’re done, its vacation time for us. 🙂 Yay!
Cebu was great, made me want to consider living there permanently. It has that small town charm and at the same time, it has the same hustle and bustle that Manila has, but only to a smaller degree. Plus, the fact that the closest beach is like around 20 minutes away helps a lot. 🙂
What I love best about my vacation was that even though it was very unfamiliar, I really appreciated the feeling of family that this vacation gave me. I’m not very close to my relatives, but this time, it felt like I belonged, like I was part of them. Funny, my biggest realization was that I think I got most of my traits from the Bartolata side and I could see bits and of pieces of them in me. It also made me miss my mom a lot more.
Anyway, I’ll do days 4 and 5 since its been quite a while since I blogged —
Day 4 – Your views on religion
Despite being raised in a Catholic setting, I don’t believe in religion as much as most people do. I don’t consider myself an agnostic; I understand the need for it and I understand that it could be helpful. However, I believe that most of it is symbolic and people take it too seriously for their own good. I believe in FAITH. I believe in God and His power, but i also believe that each person should be given the opportunity to exercise his or her beliefs whichever way he/she wants to, just like how the earlier Christians figured out their interpretation of the Word of God.
Whew. I miss writing papers for class. 🙂
Day 5 – A time you thought about ending your own life
Honestly? It always crosses my mind, especially now that I’m going through a lot. I’ll leave it at that.
