Boracay Island: Heaven On Earth

My mind sometimes drifts off to a time and place that I truly was in paradise, that I recognized the fact I was in paradise, and lastly, indulged as much as I could before dragging myself away. My mother passed away from gastric cancer in December 1997. She was born and raised on the FilipinoContinue reading “Boracay Island: Heaven On Earth”

I Know Better: Then And Now

I will not forget March 26, 2022 any day soon. The following story could’ve been prevent had I acknowledged any of warning signs I encountered way. I should’ve known better. I definitely know better NOW. Saturday, March 26, 2022 Jami had casually mentioned that I hadn’t been geocaching in a hot-minute. So with a relativelyContinue reading “I Know Better: Then And Now”

The Night I Fought Rocket the Raccoon

Anytime I encounter a raccoon themed meme or social media post, I remember the night I fought Rocket the Raccoon before he was famous in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. That’s RIGHT! A quick fun fact: In the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Rocket is referredContinue reading “The Night I Fought Rocket the Raccoon”

Rudderless In Seattle

I find myself in an unusual state: listless. Actually, it’s more accurate to state I’m rudderless in Seattle. After I completed the rehabilitation loan with the “upgrades” to my house in December 2020, I really haven’t had an all-encompassing task that provides direction to my decisions. In 2021, I attempted to start a small businessContinue reading “Rudderless In Seattle”

My One One-Night Stand

Ever hear a song that ignites a memory? Perhaps a social media post that involves the game “Never Have I Ever” has your mind rifling through its database of experiences. Well, if you thought the title to my post was confusing, the post itself will be absolutely befuddling! The question that’ll hang in your headContinue reading “My One One-Night Stand”

Hazy Shade of Winter

Every time I’m introduced into a new group (or person) I know it’ll take time for them to get to know me and vice versa. My Dad always told me, “that people will not talk with you if they don’t like you. Time is a precious commodity that people won’t waste it on unwanted activityContinue reading “Hazy Shade of Winter”

Benson Hedges: Better Currency Than Pesos

After watching wall-to-wall football for the final week of the 2022 NFL Regular Season, and the trash-talking (sh*t talking) on the field, it reminded of an incident that could’ve ended badly but didn’t. My younger sister is brash at times. Sometimes it’s at inappropriate times when decorum is the more harmonious route. For example, whenContinue reading “Benson Hedges: Better Currency Than Pesos”

Snow Day: World’s Largest Snowball Fight!

With the snow melting from the rain, AND no further snow in the forecast in Seattle and the surrounding area, it reminded me of a one particular Snow Day above all. In 2013, the Boys and Girls Club of Seattle hosted Snow Day: The World’s Largest Snowball Fight, which was an attempt at the Guinness Book ofContinue reading “Snow Day: World’s Largest Snowball Fight!”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 727

I usually look down on the ground before exiting my car because that first step can be a doozy. And if I’m driving that means it’s somewhere in public, where I’m almost guaranteed to find a few masks that have been dropped or discarded purposely. It’s a poignant reminder that COVID-19 is now a partContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 727”
