Kelly Clarkson: All I Ever Wanted

I got hold of Kelly Clarkson’s fourth studio album, All I Ever Wanted due, to the success of its two singles, My Life Would Suck Without You and I Do Not Hook Up. Upon listening to the whole compilation, I found a more beautiful song that definitely became my favorite among the other tracks, singles included: Cry.

Kelly Clarkson: All I Ever WantedThe song Cry showcases Clarkson’s belting ability and the emotional depth that she can attach to it. Cry is one of those creations where beauty is showcased through sadness.

“You’re such a little girl!”

The immortal words of Mikaela Banes (Megan Fox) to Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf). Well, if you’ve been caught cheating by your girlfriend with a humanoid transformer that attacks you, prompting your girlfriend to save your ass so you would stop screaming like a crazed woman, then you deserve it.

The transformers? They’ve been here a lonnggg, long time ago.

—Seymour Simmons

Optimus is more fierce in the sequel!

I was late for the premier of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Well, maybe for just 7-10 minutes, but you never what movie scenes you could miss in that short span of time. I had no idea it would start earlier than the movie theater’s standard opening time. As soon as I was seated and looked at the silver screen, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) had already jumped off an aircraft carrier, supported by three parachutes. Makes me wonder how light the transformers can be.

Happy Father’s Day!!!

The warmth the sun shares with us reflects our Greatest Provider. Have you ever asked yourself why you almost have everything you want as a child–why you have a so-called home where you feel safe and loved? A father wants the best for his children and family.

I know this is a late greeting, but my dad still deserves it.



A father once took his little girl on his lap and described what a Christian looked like. When he was finished, the little girl looked up at him with a furrowed, quizzical little face and asked a question that pierced her father to the core, “Daddy, have I ever seen one?”

Your father’s sperm is one of the reasons why you’re here in this world, so be thankful.

Dejection at 22

Happy birthday to me.


Another year of my life has gone by. And it wasn’t that productive. Sure, I was able to initiate “some” projects but that’s that. Just “some” projects. Nothing outstanding or impressive.

I never thought that upon reaching your 22nd birthday, you could feel bored. I know I should get a job but I can’t seem to find opportunities to pursue the career that I like. Heck, I don’t even have the talent for it. Sure, I could go back to school but my parents cannot support a second degree due to the high cost of education these days. So I have to find a job–any job and work for maybe two years, resign, then pursue the degree that I really like. What bothers me is that maybe by the time I have had earned enough for my studies, I would be too old to back to school and take up another degree.
