TINDERA SI JAM

30 Apr

>Last day of the college week. I really had a fun-filled day because I met new people and my rummage sale did well. FYI, my mom works in U.P and she organized their fare. I was there to sell the stuff that we wanted to dispose. I sold most of the stuff and earned almost 4K… =)

We brought our Manang with us and our so-loved doggie-Heaven. They had a great day too. Manang bought some stuff for herself. Heaven who was so irritable and hard to get along with (Chihuahuas are really like that), tried her very best to make friends.

We closed our store at aroung 5pm and prepared for the “Bayle” disco that lasted until 10pm. I did a little moves and I thank my Mama for not taking any picture of my dancing moves… (lolz). BTW, my mom was the dancing queen of the night.

What I really loved was the experience I had. It was really hard to sell used stuff but I did a bit good because of the rapport I built with my customers. The clothes were really inexpensive, they really enjoyed the price of 20 bucks for a piece. I was really not after the money, it was more of disposing the stuff that I no longer find useful BUT would be very helpful and valuable in others’ end.

With this experience, I also learned how to value the life our “tinderas and tinderos”. It was really hard to convince other people to buy your products and earn money out of the stuff that people might love or not.

I met new people and I now consider them as my friends. I gave them discounts and they gave me free food..hehehe! I also met new friends from STI College, they came over to have their Annual Youth Congress.

EX-LOVERS CAN BE GOOD FRIENDS

30 Apr

>My previous long-term relationship ended last year, after 7 years of happiness and sorrows. It was a basket of experiences that I would always remember. I was OVER him. P.E.R.I.O.D.

On April 29, 2008 (11:00pm), he went here at home to visit and see me. We had a heart-to-heart talk about our lives. He asked me stuff about my lovelife and I needed not to ask anything about his because I already know all about his present. The conversation was smooth.

The following day, we went to SM to pay my bills. We also watched IRON MAN (it was hell great!), ate big macs, and had our favorite drinks. It was a fun-filled day.

The day ended, and we had to separate ways again, we felt very sad but HAPPY because we know that EX-LOVERS can be GOOD FRIENDS like what we are now.
