My current boyfriend is my first Filipino boyfriend. I had attempted to date another Filipino in college but that was just a very wierd situation.

In the past, my boyfriends and the objects of various crushes and infatuatins have not been Filipino.  I live in an area where, growing up, there weren’t many Filipinos to begin with.  It’s only in the past ten years or so that the Filipino population has grown here considerably.

Also, I’m considered “tall” for a Filipino woman.  I’m about 5’6 1/2″ to about 5’7″.  For a Filipina.. that is tall.. so it’s always been difficult to find a Filipino boy that is taller than me..

Opportunities to get to know some Filipino boys were few and far between.. in fact.. my Filipino boyfriend doesn’t even live near me!  I had to find one that lives an hour and a half away from me!

It’s not that I have NEVER been attracted to Filipino boys.. it’s just that I guess I didn’t know enough growing up to build a collection “filipino boys I’ve had a crush on.. or dated.. ”

Hahah..

On a cute sidenote:
This Sunday will mark the the one year anniversary of the day that OT and I officially met.. can I get an “awwwwww…”

Yesterday was my day off.

It was nice.  I napped in the middle of the day.  Did homework.  Finished homework.  Cross-stitched.  Cross-stitched.

Watched a lot of Jon and Kate.. plus eight.

Needless to say, I had a hard time falling asleep last night because of my mid-day nap.

I can’t stand it.  It’s wierd.  A couple of years ago, I could take a nap in the mid-day and going to sleep at night wouldn’t be affected at all.

Nowadays, if I take a nap.. I have the hardest time going to sleep..

Is that what old age does to a person?

Does a year or two really make a difference in a person?

Seriously?

I promise that I’ll get back to my random factoids.. I’ve been busy.. and kinda lazy.. and I’ve actually had topics to actually blog about… so I guess you can say I’ve been relatively creative.. NOT!

I’m actually blogging because I have a song stuck in my head.. Nelly Furtado.. “On the radio..”

Not the whole song.. but the chorus..

I remember the days when I was so eager to satisfy you
And be less then I was just to prove I could walk beside you
Now that I’ve flown away I see you’ve chosen to stay behind me
And still you curse the day I decided to stay true to myself

I don’t know why it’s stuck in my head.. I’ve always like the melody to that chorus.. and the message isn’t half bad either.. I’m sure we’ve all been in relationships that you thought were right.. and in the end.. you find out you were so very, very wrong.

Makes you scared to jump into another relationship.. but like everything.. it’s a risk.. and a lesson.. and someday.. my prince will come.. who knows.. he may be here already.. let’s hope so!

 

In our lab’s storeroom, there are shelves that can get moved thru the room to create more walking space.. apperantly.. thats how they are at my boyfriend’s work too.  If you aren’t careful and are unaware of anyone else in other rows.. you can easily move a wall and squish the unsuspecting lab coworker.. that is if they aren’t screaming for you to stop..

Well.. my bestie.. that works with my boyfriend.. just texted me to tell me that my boyfriend tried to kill her with those moving walls..

Silly boyfriend.  Silly best friend.

I remember almost killing the janitor by doing the exact same thing.. and I also remember barely escaping sudden death when one of my co-workers was moving the walls..

By the way.. when I mean death.. I’m totally exaggerating..

You can’t get killed by those moving walls.. maybe just bruised.. a scream is enough to stop anyone from pushing those walls too far in..

My.

Voice.

This royally sucks.  As a person that loves to sing, this is something that is always feared and dreaded the most whenever I catch a cold or get sick.

This is apparently the cold that never ends..

I’m trying not to cough.  I’ve been traumatized by what has happened to my mother’s vocal chords as a result of a bad cold that left her coughing for about a month.  Coughing is a singers mortal enemy.  As a result of her cough, she now has nodules on her vocal chords.  She’s been going to through some vocal therapy, but with her constantly losing her voice, she isn’t getting very far.  Surgery may be the next option.

Anything involving cutting me open.. and working on my vocal chords.. something I never ever want to risk.. I love to sing too much..

Thank God I don’t have any singing engagements coming up.. ugh.. I don’t like being sick.

It was more like a weekend to forget..

Today is the boyfriend’s birthday.  The plan was to be down there this weekend to celebrate.  But we all know I got sick.. and I was stuck in bed all week.. and by default.. I was stuck in bed all weekend.

I missed my boyfriend’s birthday weekend.

Good part was I got to  miss three days of work.. plus the weekend.  It was like a mini-vacation.

Bad part is coming back makes me feel all out of sorts as I’m trying to catch up and make sense of all the things that have happened while I was sick.  I hate missing so much work because I always feel lost when I get back.

I feel really bad for missing out on his birthday and not being able to spend his birthday with him.  It’s my thing about “firsts..”

It is his first birthday with us as a couple.. and we celebrated mine together.. I really wanted to be there to celebrate his.. sigh.

There’s always next year.. and if God allows.. many  years to come..

But lets not get ahead of ourselves.. let’s just take this.. one year at a time..

Sad thing is.. I still feel a little down.. as in.. sick.. as in.. blah!

I’m going to be lazy and fill out a survey I found on myspace.com.  It’s going to a nice long weekend.  I’m staying at home.. and I can calmly finish my homework and not have to really stress.. It just sucks that I don’t get to spend time with my boyfriend during his birthday weekend.  I would have been nice.. but things happen..

Anyway.. on to the survey!

NCAA basketball..

Thanks to my lil ZZ, who is my cousin’s son.. I have officially been hooked into the college basketball tournament..

The other day we were all at his grandmother’s house and he prints a whole bunch of tournament brackets.  He passes one out to each of us and told us to fill one out.

Now I’m all over the basketball games.  Too bad I don’t really remember who my picks were.  He said he was going to email us our brackets, but he’s eight years old.. I’m sure he’s forgotten by now.

Any case, I know who I picked as my winning team and I’d like to see how far I get in my picks before I get taken out of the game completely..

It’s actually a lot more interesting that I thought.. I have always liked watching basketball.. but it’s something about it being the championship tournament that makes it so much more exciting.. it’s like when I get really into the NBA playoffs..

Looks like it’s the start of something I may do every year.. but I should keep up with the whole season so my picks are more justified than the  “eeny meeny minny mo” strategy..

I would rather email, text, or chat online with a person than talk on the phone.

Ok.. this is where we learn how anti-social I really am.. hahah..

I have never been one that talks on the phone.  I can.. when it’s a boy Im dating.. that’s usually the only time I am really on the phone a lot.

I hardly ever make phone calls.  I hate when I have to call people.  I honestly would rather get people’s answering machine than actually get to talk to them.   It’s wierd.

That’s why I loved it when text messaging became a huge thing.  I am so much better at getting a hold of my friends and family by text messaging or emailing.

My best friend’s and I communicate the best through our emails and texts.

I communicate best with my boyfriend through texts and emails.

Don’t get me wrong, I love personal contact.. but phone calls are something I have always avoided.. I’m not sure why..

I may not talk to you on the phone.. but I can bombard a person with text messages like nobody’s business..
