Mom’s Hub

My stepmom recently opened a new business. It’s called Mom’s Hub. It’s a store that sells food packaging and party supplies. It also offers party balloon services and catering services care of Tita Mimi’s Catering.

This summer, I started an art class there. It’s to utilize an extra space on the second floor of the shop. My dad also offers guitar lessons there. Our classes are every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

For this summer, my daughter and I got really creative. The art classes were a big hit. Although our business is small, I am hopeful that our endeavors won’t go unnoticed. I’m super proud of my students’ outputs.

We tried to recreate Jim Dine’s painting as well as Joan Miro’s doodles.

Then we also tried to make our own Picasso faces.

The guitar lessons have started as well. It began with parts of the guitar and learning how to tune a guitar. This was then followed by guitar chord exercises. I joined in to brush up on my guitar skills as well.

This is just the beginning of a whole new chapter in our lives.

A Man for God or for me?

I attended a recollection and it was great. I met one of the facilitators who was in his seventh year in the seminary. Cute and intelligent. I pretty much liked him instantly. Sadly, he was meant for God. I think. 

Unless, of course, he decides to simply give in to the idea of having a family and a new love instead of serving God. 

I wish. 

The wistful part was that I think he liked me back. 


The Right Relationship

I told someone yesterday about my failed relationships and it suddenly dawned to me that all the while I was telling myself that they were the wrong men for me, I was also the wrong girl for them.

That was why it didn’t work out.

Now, instead of looking for the “right guy” for me, I decided that I should do my best to be the “right girl” for someone.

I start a new chapter in my life, not in search of a relationship but in search of becoming the best “me” that I can be.

Ironically, although I voiced this stand to my peers, they replied that it also can’t be helped if a relationship goes looking for me.


My Non-existent Social Life and Love Life

My current status of being single came to be the topic of the week. I found out that some people find it odd that I don’t have a boyfriend or a husband yet.

Here’s why:

  1. I don’t meet anybody new.
  2. The places I go would be the dance studio, my relatives’ homes and shopping malls.
  3. No one asks me out.
  4. If someone does, they are not single so obviously, I decline going out with them.
  5. I’m partially scared to start dating again.

So I tell myself that maybe God has other plans for me and yes, the right man will find me. I still believe in falling in love and happily ever after. But they all think that I should start dating again to get that dream.

Yeah, I really should.
