SS #11: A Fall Meme

posted by Rechie on


It’s not really fall in until I experience it and see the falling dry leaves before my eyes (haven't experienced fall yet).

What did you need to do in the waning days of summer for it to feel complete? I went home to see my family.

A person I know was wrong for me but about whom I frequently thought after a break-up was ...(no comment)

If you could only attend one major sporting event what would it be? Gymnastic.

Assuming that you write an anonymous or partially anonymous blog, by what non-physically identifying characteristics might you be identified in a bar? A photo of a lip gloss.

Most blogs cover some sort of niche – personal, political, dating, culinary, etc. What topic, if any, would you like to address on your blog but doesn’t fit into your niche? Jokes, photos and some.

If you could manipulate the time space continuum and give as many as three pieces of advice to a younger version of yourself, what advice would you give and to what age of you?

If given a chance, I would like to give these 3 pieces of advice to a 17-year-old Chuchie:
1. Be cautious with the people around you. There are lots of bad people out there that dress like an angel.
(This would be the very first advice because this could have helped me avoid that incident that left a very painful scar in my life that only my husband and my family know.)
2. Don't give your heart and your trust so easily.
3. Don't lose hope and be strong, trials will pass when you beat it.

Who among your friends do you really wish had a blog because their stories, or perspective on something ought to be shared? Elben. She was my high school friend and is now working in SUMS.

If you were to take an e-cation (vacation from the trappings of our electronic world,) and assuming that employment obligations would allow it, how long of a break could you take? What would you miss the most, the least? I would like to have a month-long vacation but with a laptop because i'll be surely missing blog hopping, entrecard dropping and facebook games wooot...

On September 11th of this year, I attended a couple of parties and was somewhat conflicted by the fact that this ignoble anniversary shall pass with it being just another day in the eyes of many (and in some ways my own eyes as well.) Thoughts? Yep, it is just like today, an ordinary day, and when tomorrow comes, that will become yesterday.

How high are your walls? Too darn high! Who was the last person to scale them? No one would dare. What tools should would-be climbers have on their belt? Lots of patience and high endurance.

The sexiest thing a man or a woman can say to you (or has said to you) is: "You are mine" (giggle)

Photohunt #21: Twisted

posted by Rechie on


Here is my share for today's Photohunt theme which is "twisted". I twisted my hair up like Peebles and have a scrunchy hold it up together. So I have here my twisted hair and my twisted scrunchy.Tying my hair up like Peebles gives me a lighter feeling. Ok, that line reminds me of this line -> "I need to cut some of my hair, it is so darn heavy!" Anyway, hubby helped me with this theme too. He was the one who took the picture.

Hubby Broke Up With Me and Left Me

posted by Rechie on


That’s the gossip that the people in my hometown had been busy talking about behind my back. I don’t know when and how that news started to spread around the town. I really have no idea. I guess, only those active gossipers in town only know about that because I, myself don’t know that my husband left me.
This is how I knew about that gossip:
I was waiting for a bus to go back to Dipolog City (where hubby and I reside) at the bus stop at the market. While silently sitting at the bench near the small store in there when the vendor, a woman in her late 20s along with some older women asked me about how true is the news she heard at the fish market that my husband broke up with me and left me. I was like “what”? My husband broke up with me and left me? Oh, I don’t know about that! Good for them they know it! Where that news did came from? She answered that she only heard people talking about it or should I say, talking about me at the fish market. It made me think. The people in my hometown are practicing showbiz talk.

I never knew that those people are talking about me while I was smiling at them buying their fish and other stuffs. That is if the news is really from there. Meaning, they’ve been gossiping about my life all along. I really cannot believe it. I’ve been trying to be good to the people around me to the extent of talking about my dear private life. I can’t believe that my life has been a viand of their every gossip talk without me knowing. I was not really affected with that gossip because I know my life better than them. What made me upset was that fact that people are stepping into my life and making stories.

So I told those ladies I was talking to that my husband is still in Dipolog City, in our home. The only thing that I can think of my husband leaving me is his work which will be next month. And to prove that my husband is still with me, I called my husband. I set the phone loudspeaker on so they can hear him as we talked about the gossip I just heard. My husband was shock about that gossip. It was expected. Hubby said, the next time I’ll go back to my hometown he will go with me and we will stroll around the market until the gossipers be dead with jealousy.

Five More Awards

posted by Rechie on


I received this "You Cheer Me Up Award" from Mr. D. of Basic Bloganomics on the 11th of September together with the "United Blogger Award". I intended not to post the two awards together to avoid my grabbers or my awarded bloggers from being confused since the "united blogger award" was about blog linking. So, here I am posting now this "You Cheer Me Up" award together with the other set of awards Mr D. had given me.

Here are four more awards from Mr. D. of Basic Bloganomics. I received this award last week, on the 16th. I was not able to post it right away because of a little laziness. Lol. Well, thank you Mr. D. for giving me another set of awards enough to overwhelm a little blogger like me. I do appreciate your kindness to me and to all your blogger friends.

A New Site To Monetize Your Blog

posted by Rechie on


Writing honest reviews of a certain site’s products and services is one of the major money makers for bloggers. As a blogger, I know that making money through our blogs is one of our purposes aside from expressing thoughts and sharing information from our personal experiences to our readers. I admit I have earned from writing reviews little by little on my blogs which I never thought I could. I am thankful that that there are sites that help monetize blogs like mine by bringing together the bloggers and the advertisers.

Make money with blog

Talking about monetizing blogs, there is this new site called Link from Blog that helps bloggers and of course, advertisers in reaching their goals and objectives here in the web. I read about this site from a friend’s blog. It captured my interest and so I tried it. Signing up to the site is as easy as getting to know more about the site because they provide all the information a blogger and an advertiser needs. For sure you'll get interested with this too so check it out!

3. Rechie Ruth needs atm card.
4. Rechie Ruth needs to stop taking responsibilities that are not hers.

What's So Special With 09-09-09?

posted by Rechie on


People believe that today September 09, 2009 or 09-09-09 or 09/09/09 is a lucky day. It is even called "The Lucky Day" that only happens once in a lifetime. So, I may say I am lucky enough to be able to reach this so-called lucky day.
There is something special with the combination of these numbers, 09-09-09.
  1. September 09, 2009 is the 252nd day of the year and there are 113 days left before another year. (113 has a number 13 in it and number 13 marks a bad luck to people's mind. Therefore, 09-09-09 is believed to be a good luck day since it separates the bad luck day that everything you do and everything you aim for during that day will have a positive outcome and will be granted. )
  2. Now, if you are going to add 2+5+2 the answer is 9.
  3. Add 09-09-09 and you'll get 27 as the answer.
  4. Now, add 2+7 and the answer is 9 (if you noticed, the numbers run around the circle).
  5. 9 is the last single digits among the dates in every month
  6. 999 is the upside-down numbers of 666 which is claimed to be satan's.
I can say that 09-09-09 brings happiness and luck in my life. I thank God for letting me live up to this day. Here are my the lucky things that happen today.
  1. I am able to get up early today and went to Tagbilaran Port safely.
  2. I am able to get an Ocean Jet ticket to go back home to Dipolog City.
  3. I am able to come home safely (despite of the big waves) and see my beloved husband whom I missed for 5 days.
  4. I am able to see Sen. Noy2x Aquino confirmed his candidacy for President on TV while at the port.
  5. And the best thing, I am able to see my mom welcoming me home. God I am so happy! Thank God!

Finally Back to Blogging

posted by Rechie on


This actually is just a short notice saying that I am done with my 5 days off. Some things that are written here other than my everyday blah are just bonuses. I don’t feel like talking much about my trip because my pictures are not yet ready. Besides, I am dead tired and I should be posting my whereabouts to my WhereAbouts, right?

Ok, back to my blah. My HS friend, Monette and I travelled to Dumaguete City to visit another HS friend there. We stayed and explored Dumaguete City for three days. It was tiring but I liked it when we visited their church there. Church visiting as soon as you arrive to your destination is the best thing I learned from Monette. I do like that idea. It is the best time to thank God for taking us to the place safe and sound. I took few pictures in Dumaguete but I’ll be posting it to my WhereAbouts.

After Dumaguete, we went to Tagbilaran with a purpose (secret). Then stayed and explored the place for 2 days. We stayed at Monette’s family. They are a real great family. They are very religious and fun at the same time. I really enjoyed my stay there. More info about my whereabouts will be posted to my WhereAbouts blog. Good evening to you all!
