Of rubber balls and glass balls

This is still from the book Suzzane’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson.

“ Imagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends and integrity. And you’re keeping all of them in the air. But one day, you come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls – family, health, friends, integrity – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered. And once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls, you will have the beginnings of the balance in your life.”

Though finding the balance in life can also become challenging sometimes, depending on the circumstances. But during these moments, I’ll just content myself with the thought that yes, we can balance everything. It may become unbalanced at some point but we can always bounce back to a balanced life.

We

We is so much better than I.”

That’s an excerpt from the book Suzzane’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson. I started reading it yesterday dawn just to put me to sleep and when I woke up, I decided to read a few more chapters. From then on, I was hooked. I can’t put the book down until I finished it hehehe.

As the title puts it, it’s a diary about the love story of Suzzane, Matt and their son Nicholas. I almost can’t believe it that it’s written by a man hehehe. There are heartbreaking moments but it’s full of heartwarming tales as well. 🙂

Now back to the excerpt. Simply, I wish that the time would come when I would be using We more often rather than just I. That would be nice. 🙂

Sweet Dreams!

I have come to love these books when I was in high school. Hay! The stories are all romantic hihihi. Racing Hearts was the first book I read. We had this mini-library in class where those who have books can bring it to class so that others may borrow it. Luckily, we had this one classmate who has a complete set of Sweet Dreams (together with the Sweet Valley series from Twins to High to University) and that’s where I was able to read some books. Heck, I was really hooked that I read even in moving vehicles hehe (yeah right, bad for the eyes :p). Until now, I still check out the bookstores for copies of these books.

Fast forward to today. I was browsing Ebay for some books when I came across some titles. It brought back memories until I decided to try to complete my collection ahihi. Thus I started bidding some books in Ebay already wahahaha. Ok lang na second hand basta readable pa rin ang texts. But I’m wishing that I could get brand new copies huhu. Merong iba from abroad pero pamatay naman ang shipping huhu. Mas mahal pa kaysa sa bayad sa books :(. I already have some copies at home. Wish ko lang natago pa ng kapatid ko yung ibang nabili ko dati huhuhu. Anyway, sana macomplete ko!

Sherrilyn Kenyon Unleashed

I’m done with Unleash the Night, the first book I read written by her. And I want more hihihi. Tomorrow is book shopping day! Wahahaha! Well, what can I do? I’m hooked hahaha. Besides, there’s still a discount at NBS until September 16, so I better grab the opportunity yiffee!

New Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon

I am trying to read a book by an author introduced to me by my friend. The author is Sherrylyn Kenyon. Her stories are usually on paranormal romance because it involves wolves, vampires and humans. Well, according to my friend, there are no gory parts in the book. Thus I decided to try it. I bought 1 of her books entitled Unleash the Night. I read until page 8 and so far, I like it. I had to finish this right away though so that if it fits my taste, I can buy her other books that are on sale at National Bookstore hehehe.

Missing the books and other hobbies

For months now, I haven’t finished reading any books yet. Waaahh. And I still have plenty of unread books. I don’t have any valid excuse for not reading. I hope to be back on the game soon. Napapalagpas ko na yung magagandang books na dapat basahin hehe.

Di na rin ako nakakapag-cross-stitch. Kasi naman laging pagod sa work. Tuloy, pag-uwi sa bahay pahinga na lang or tulog na. Wish ko lang matapos ko na yung nasimulan ko years ago pa hahaha. Yung gift ni tita di ko pa natatahi. Mag-iisang taon na yun, di ko pa rin nagagawa e maliit lang naman yun. Sus. Kay tamad ko talaga. Tsk tsk tsk…bad ‘to! So, do something about it, ok?!
