Updates: My Current State of Being

1) Emotional Rollercoaster
Been having major swings up and down as of the late with some personal matters that I cannot fully disclose as of now.  What I can say, however, is please add to your parents petitions for Good Health and Healing to all your friends, family, and family of friends.

2) Missing My Panda Bear
Wish I could visit her sooner, but I guess it has to be baby steps until things are really ready.  To be able to visit her, I need to accomplish the following: a) a means to work even while abroad, b) my Canadian visa renewed, c) Enough cash to last the trip and finance our nights out when I get there, d) A place to stay so I don't have to crash over their house.

Still working on b, c, and d.  Currently accomplishing a.  Getting myself a laptop.   Was dead set on getting a Toshiba to give me the accessibility I need.   But I heard a new model came out the week my parents were going to order it for me.  So I am waiting to see how that goes.

My sweetie had a Guiness last night with some friends I guess at an Irish pub.  Wah... I wish I was with her during the time.  I recall having one back in St. Patrick's day with some friends (Nick, Alec, the Fab sisters and Nina) and that was the night I paid around 350 for a can of Guiness, and met that guy who looks like Liam Neeson.  Hmm.. On hindsight, that guy did promise to treat me to another can when I return.

Missing her tremendously.  For those who are willing, please also add "May Tobie and Isha receive blessings from the Pinya." to your prayers.  Alam na ni Lord what that means. :-)

3) Samsung X8-20 Broken
I think I dropped my cellphone one too many times.  There is now a fine crack across the whole screen that seems to be damage from the inside since I cannot feel the crack when I slide my thumbnail against the screen.  The damage is enough, however, that the phone shuts down on its own at times.  Sigh.  My phone used to be protected by a little nice cushioned bag.  I lost that bag for a few weeks and it seems the phone got battered enough during those two weeks to get this damaged.

I am going to have to invest on a new phone soon.

4) Gaming Keeps Me Sane
Thankfully, I still get to have my once a week gaming session with my friends.  Well, usually, that is.  The Exalted game has finally reached the last "major story arc" and the players are really feeling the pressure now.

In preparation for the days we are not complete, Aldwin has also offered to run for us a Dragonlance Campaign.  That should be fun.  I probably would create a character similar to Riva Silvercrown (although likely sticking to a Knight rather than a Paladin class) if I were to play in it.  It is d20, so I'm not too keen on it yet, but then again, it could be worse.

Probably shelving the plans to play a Weapons of the Gods campaign after Exalted.  Obviously had fun with the Amber diceless session, but I dunno.  Maybe will hit back Changeling or Vampire after instead.  Or better yet, try their new World of Darkness (Lost and Requiem respectively) incarnations instead.

5) Open Gaming is coming this Saturday
Yep.  That too.  Here's hoping to see a lot of new fresh faces.
What's the Open Gaming Meet?  Check here.


  1. see you Saturday then!
    have a good day!

  2. Ah, interesting... an Irish pub in the Phil? Bring me there sometime, this time, hindi na ako mag ststrike three. Hehe

    Kaya yan bro, kayang kaya yan.

    See you OGM man.

  3. Vampire: The Masquerade?

    I adore that.

    I'll keep you and Isha (she really seems like a beautiful person--from the few exchanges we've had in Multiply) in my prayers. And with #1, I hope you have friends you can confide in and share with. God bless 'em indeed.

  4. Thanks. See you then!

  5. It is called Murphy's and its in Makati. I forget what cross street. Sorry!

  6. Thanks.

    And yes, I do naman. Thankfully. Sadly my parents would rather keep it mum for now. Thank you!

  7. As for the pint of Guinness : hay. Wish you were here. Haha Lem (my cousin) tells me naghahamon daw ako ng away with the punks on the subway. Hehe.

    I don't remember. Miss you, baby. Mwah!

  8. Tobie, how long do you plan to stay there? I'll ask my aunt or cousin, but I'm not promising anything. I'm not sure din kasi of their setup, but give me a few details then I'll ask.

  9. I hope you're not in a bad mood right now. Last time we IMed 'di yata OK mood mo. I was trying to ask you to the bloggers party sana. This Friday meron ulit sa MOA. If you have nothing to do punta ka. Will bring Urim with me.

  10. Petitions for Good Health and Healing? Ito ba yung sa church, na i-heal nila yung mga effects sa 'yo ng sins ng ancestors mo?

  11. Funny thing is, I still have Karen's gift to us both in the room all wrapped up. I promised her I'd open it only when I am with you.


  12. Well, just promise me you don't try to beat someone up pag may baril na. Your life is far more expensive and valuable than anything you might have that they would want to steal.

    Ingat lang love.

  13. Hey Aprile,

    Yeah medyo bad mood ako that day.

    Thanks for the invite.
    But I opted to stay home today (friday).
    Garapatas need sleep too.

  14. I got your back, prayer-wise.

  15. Hugs back.

    (and a sneaky pinch on the butt)

  16. ooh exciting...

    Can't wait. I hope it's a puppy, but if it's in a box till october it might die :(

  17. The power of my superpowers come out in proportion to the alcohol I consume. Mwah. Heehee.

  18. Ganun?!??!

    :-* Mwah!

    Ako Panda Powered. :-D
