Ano pa ba ang silbi ng bawat umaga
Kung sa bawat paggising ay wala ka
Kahit sulyap lang sa iyo ay hindi natatamasa
Siguro ito na nga, tapos na.

Hindi ko na ipipilit kung ito talaga ang nakatakda
Kahit hindi naman talaga ako naniniwala sa tadhana
Kung ito ang makabubuti, hahayaan ko na nga
Na magwakas itong ating pagiibigan na akala nati'y di magsasawa

Pagkat iba na ako, iba ka na, iba na ang tayo
Mga pagkakaibang pareho nating hindi gusto
Marahil hindi natin alam kung paano tayo humantong sa ganito
Ngunit kailangan nating tanggapin ang pareho nating alam, kailangan na nating wakasan ito.

D-day B-day

I logged in Zuckerberg's kingdom at 12/21/2012 06:00 GMT +8 and that early, it already annoyed me. People counting down to the end of the world. SRSLY. Another reason why I got annoyed though is that I haven't received any birthday greeting on my wall yet. Hehe.

I don't really make a big fuss about my birthday but I decided to make this year different. This year I decided to celebrate it with a small feast with my family. Well yeah, maybe at the back of my head I was thinking that if the world will really end on that day, at least I get to celebrate it with my loved ones. 

Funny how even my family was surprised that I celebrated my birthday with them and they kind of believed that it might really be the end of the world because of it. Well, it is not called Doomsday, its called getting old and appreciating the things you have in your life. 

Come to think of it, it was actually the best birthday I could ever remember. It was definitely better than last year. 12/21/2011, I just took the CCNA Voice exam, opened an account in Citisec Online brokers and renewed my Electronics Engineer license. 

Wow, I just realized that how I celebrate my birthday sort of determine how my year was. 2011 was a busy-productive-career-focused year, thus my 12-21-2011 activities. 2012 was a laid-back-finding-my-happiness year and that is why I decided to be with the most important people in my life. Oh well, too much for talking about my birthday. I am just excited with how 12-21-2013 is going to be like.

Brian Viveros

For years, this image had been the wallpaper on my old phone. It's file name is viveros.jpg, a default name from the source I downloaded it from. I don't know why I am fixated to this photo/painting but I like the emotion that is being projected out of it. Conservatives would think that this girl needs help but I dunno, I believe that if she would look at generic people, she would think that we all are slaves of the norms and she would say that we also need help. Well, maybe its just me and my secret rebellious self wanting to be Amy Winehouse.

So I've lost my phone and this image but not my secret self. And today I was browsing through deviantart to find a wallpaper for my new phone when out of the blue I remembered about viveros.jpg. That name didn't mean anything to me before until after I googled Viveros.

Brian is the artist's name, a typical American name or so I thought. After browsing through his incredible works, Brian Viveros became more than a name to me and he might actually be the best Brian I ever came across.
Brian Viveros is the guy who made the image above. And I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that I LOVE all of his works. I am not claiming to be artsy but I think a work of art is great when it makes you feel a certain emotion just by looking at it. And for him to be able to convey that emotion to a generic person like me is amazing. 

I don't feel pity for his bruised female paintings, I feel envious because they are brave enough to say "I don't care what you think", do what they want and get to experience life. Unlike the pitiful generic people in their boring everyday suits. And yes, that is the Winehouse in me talking.

Oh and by the way, this is my home screen wallpaper:

I dunno if using his images without him profiting from it is illegal. As for my country, nothing cyber is illegal here.. :)  But I plan on supporting him by buying a Viveros shirt as a birthday and Christmas present for myself.
