Being on the receiving end of jokes about my flaws, especially when they pertain to something I can't change, makes me feel more insecure. It's disheartening, and it becomes even more frustrating when these jests come from mere acquaintances. I can tolerate jokes about my habits or the way I dress, but when it comes to my physical flaws, it stings more deeply. As a result, I am always mindful not to make similar jokes about others, especially if I know it could potentially hurt them.

Respecting others' feelings and being sensitive to their vulnerabilities is essential to maintaining positive and healthy relationships. By refraining from joking about topics that may cause emotional harm, we create an environment of empathy and understanding. It's important to treat others with the same kindness and compassion that we hope to receive ourselves. Ultimately, fostering a culture of mutual respect and support leads to stronger connections and a more harmonious social dynamic.

Having three kids, my youngest is 11 months old, it's like forever changing diapers, making milk, feeding babies. Wish I could have more time-off for myself, I don't have time to enjoy night-outs anymore. It's always with the kids, to the mall with the kids, to the movies with the kids. It's not that I really don't want to spend time with them, but you know, I need at least some time-off, even for just once in a year.


Cheating in a relationship extends beyond just physical actions; it encompasses emotional betrayal as well.

According to Wikipedia:
Cheating by thinking of, touching, and talking with someone you are attracted to may be equally damaging to one of the parties. Emotional cheating may be correlated to that of emotional abuse, which to date is treated seriously in a court of law as physical cheating. Some couples simply believe that cheating constitutes doing anything, whether verbal or physical, that one would not do in front of their significant other. Such examples would include: expressing attraction to another person, electronic communications, kissing, making out, and sexual relations.
The heartbreaking reality is that the person who engaged in the betrayal often refuses to admit their actions and persists in denying the truth. When confronted, they may resort to crafting excuses or alibis to justify their behavior. Disturbingly, some cheaters may even shift the blame onto their partners, pointing out flaws, differences, or any perceived shortcomings in an attempt to justify their actions.

Such behavior can be emotionally devastating for the betrayed partner, adding further pain to the already hurtful act of infidelity. Emotional cheating can be just as damaging as physical cheating, as it involves a breach of trust and emotional intimacy within the relationship.

Back when I was little, I'm much more closer to my father than I was with my mother. Maybe it's because my father used to give what I want, buy what I want, etc. He wouldn't let nobody in our family spank me, though my mother had spank me a couple of times, but I deserved it anyway.

I fondly recall how my father will always have something for me when he comes home from work. My favorite was Juicy Fruit bubble gum, which I often swallow after a few chews. He would also tag me along when he's taking the company's guest on a tour of the city. Bring me along to the office during weekends, while he's working I'm taking the tour of the office, seating on chairs pretending I'm a grown-up office girl. It was also the first time I had my hands on a computer and played my first computer game (PacMan).

My dad is the most responsible guy I've known in my whole existence, he'll do everything to support his family. Will even work on weekends during his day-offs just so he could provide more for his family. Will do any kind of work, as long as it's decent. High School was his highest education attained, never entered college, because his parents (my grandparents) can't afford to do so. But that didn't stop him from doing what he must in order to survive and raise a family. That's because of his intelligence, perseverance, and resourcefulness. Sadly, not a lot of guys possess this kind of attitude.

When I was a kid, I used to play outside with our neighbor kids. During those times, playing alone in your house is lonely, so I have to go out to have fun. We play hide and seek, tag, exploring the neighborhood, playing pretend (cooking leaves), collecting stones/bottle caps/rubber bands/"teks", play in the rain, and many more.

Simple fun, simple pleasures. You learn to cooperate because if not, you'll end up playing alone, which is kind of depressing during those days, especially if you're an only child.

Today, kids can enjoy just by sitting infront of the computer, playing online games, or play using their handheld games. You can enjoy without even doing efforts of going out and making friends.

I enjoyed my childhood years, and wouldn't exchanged them to what it is today.

I posted more than a week ago, about my full (married) name being so common. It's a combination of a very, very common name and a common Filipino family name.

I remember asking my mother how or why I was named "Jennifer", she said because during that time, there was a song titled "Jennifer". The other reason was that it was after their names, Fe and Fernando (FER in my name), and she was called "Nene" (that is for the NI in my name) during her childhood years.

I searched wikipedia, and here's the info I found:

Jennifer is a female given name; it became a common first name for females in English-speaking countries during the 20th century. The name Jennifer is a Cornish variant of Guinevere, which is a Norman-derived Middle English form of the Old Welsh Gwenhwyfar (gwen: white, fair + hwyfar: smooth, soft). Despite the name's similarity to the Old English words jenefer, genefer and jinifer, which were all variants of Juniper and used to describe the juniper tree, there is no evidence that it was derived from these.

The name has been in use since the 18th century. Before 1906 the name was fairly uncommon, but it became popular after George Bernard Shaw used it for the main female character in The Doctor's Dilemma.[citation needed] It gained even more popularity in the 1970s. Though its popularity is often attributed to the novel and film Love Story,[citation needed] Jennifer was already the number 3 name given to baby girls in the United States in 1969, the year before the book and movie were released. Jennifer was the single most popular name for American girls from 1970 to 1984. It is also popular for Hispanic females. Since the early 1990s it has remained common, but considerably less so. Diminutives include Jen (Jenn), Jenny (Jennie, Jenni), and Jenna.
