Top Five: things that would make my life easier

  • If money grew on trees. Or if I could buy it like toilet paper.

  • I need so much money right now. I’ve applied to New York Film Academy for the one year conservatory photography course and it seems like I’ve gotten accepted. Now I need to pay a reservation fee of $1000. GUH. CAN YOU SAY GUH? GUH! But yes. This is the precursor to “following your dreams” that no one ever talks about: your dreams cost money. And in my case, it costs a lot of it.

  • If teleportation were real. Portkey, anyone?

  • I live in the South and my office is in Pasig. Although this is a much better situation now than before ever since my office relocated to Ortigas from Cubao, the driving is still getting to me. No matter how well rested I am, most days I am still dreading the trek across the highway and into the North. I can’t afford to live on my own and I can’t really commit to a one year contract anyway. My life would be so much easier if I could just grab onto a grubby old shoe and be transported into Pasig after a hair raising portkey ride. Huzzah.

  • If rice weren’t so darn good and impossible to give up!
  • My cousin’s wedding is in a little over a month, and I haven’t really tried on the dress yet. It was only based on a dress that I’m not even sure I still fit into. As a backup plan, I am giving up rice for the entire month of September. This is quite hard for two reasons. One, I am a Filipino and it is almost impossible for us to quit rice entirely, and two, it’s just so daaaaarn good. Double guh!

  • If my eyesight were perfect
  • Contact lenses are the best thing that’s happened to my bad eyesight, but it can still be quite a hassle sometimes. Especially since optical stores don’t abound all over the Metro. Besides, I keep worrying that if ever I were to get into a plane crash and end up on a tropical island somewhere, I’d be completely helpless if I were to lose my contacts or my glasses. How will I survive?!

  • If I had a coin operated boy.

  • Fans of The Dresden Dolls know what I’m talking about. I don’t like dating, and I wish it were easy. But it’s not. Maybe I should wish for the capacity, then, instead of the coin operated boy. Eh. Whatevs. Hahaha. All I know is, no one is worth the effort right now. Triple guh!

    1. First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d
      like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center
      yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
      I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
      thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
      15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how
      to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
