I have not updated my blog for quite some time now. Its not that there is nothing to post about. On the contrary, there are a lot of things going on around now, and for someone who is supposedly on sabbatical, there's still much that whirl about.
For now, maybe as some sort of a blogpost check list, here are a few things that the Batchoy Man is contending with, and perhaps, will make a blogpost on, sooner or soonest.
First: A long time ex girlfriend is tying the knot, and for whatever cruel reasons, she personally invited me to witness how some guy is gonna be something I can never be. I'm still in a quandary whether to go or not. YJ alam mo to! Huwell...
Second: A very forward, aggressive, makulit and uber idealistic guy is acing like he owns me; just because I said yes to a one-time post valentine coffee date with him. The problem? He is a kid! 17 year old for crying out loud! Do I hear anyone shout craddle snatching? Worse... statutory rape? Oh, God (Republic Act 9344) forbid!
Third: Over the edge excitment, with a capital X! I am damn looking forward to my mini-break, cum pre-birthday gift, cum eheads nostalgia, cum eyeball with some bloggers, cum.... cum to cum! Ching! MANELA, Manela! I can't wait to get to manela! Hehehehe... YJ ang tickets ha!
Fourth: Speaking of Birthday's I am also in a rut whether to dish out the usual themed birthday bash, just go out with friends, take time off and do a silent day, or splurge for a trip outside the country for my natal day. I know that my friends look forward to my annual themed bash, and I don't want to disappoint. After all, this will be my big third cycle! Oh what to do!
Fifth: The UP Visayas Sentro ng Wikang Filipino, together with the Humanities Department, is coming up with a literary publication. I am being asked to send a submission. I will have to come up with a Folio of three to five Hiligaynon poems that has social relevance. I am not big on "labels" with my poems. I consider me pedestrian and commonplace when it comes to writing, but every so often, I try these "big" stuff on for size when writing my poems. I do have pieces or two ready in my corpus, but I reckon I would like to write a coordinated collection of fresh poems for this. Thus! I write. Yes! It has a deadline. March 8. Oh well...
All these, and I am on sabbatical! Hehehehe! Well then, maybe later I will compose a proper entry for one of those above mentioned concerns, but for now, I gotta have my coffee... Meanwhile, Batchoyan Denizens, enjoy this track. Not that I am in love though... it's just a Friday so... Cheerios!
PS: Saturday na pala... oh well
