MacBook Pro


i caved in. i finally took the leap and put myself in debt for an item i have been talking about for-ever and day. i am officially a proud owner of a MacBook Pro.

last week, i took a staycation. i took the time to get some financial things finalized, booked a spa trip for me and my mom, spent adventure times with the chosen few and fit in a day or two catching up on tv shows/movies/sleep.

during that pricey spa trip with my mom, her phone wouldn’t turn on. she has been complaining about the battery and i knew it’s time to retire her 4 year old phone. this past year, she managed to get by. i bought her an external battery charger/pack and taught her how to have barely anything running in the background. i also made sure the iOs was updated (when required). that routine worked for a good year but then eventually that pack just fried the battery because it was a third party charger. we all know how that never helps in the long run with these very exclusive apple products (pfft).

i convinced her that she should disconnect for a couple of days. she enjoyably agreed but i knew that as soon as we’re done the trip, i would need to get her a new device. but of course with a new device, i need to back-up+back-up+back-up. ultimately i needed iTunes and i couldn’t do that on my work laptop. it’s been a little over a year without a personal laptop (because PC batteries never last and they eventually just die). i have kept all old memory boards and eventually i will figure out a way to get those backed up properly… eventually.

anyway, as soon as we got home – i did a manual upload of all her apps, gave her access to my spotify and added all her contacts 1-by-1. i also uploaded the few pictures we took on my iPhone from our trip. after that i knew it was time to order the Pro. it came 2 days early and just like that here i am. any acquired laptops, a story is born and i have to blog and test out the keyboard. that is how it all began, of course. another one for the books with my devices and now i shall live frugally for the rest of the year.

with any new device comes the set ups. as much as i love save password prompts, because i am the most forgetful person, starting over on a new device always results in changing every important gmail/hotmail/itunes passwords i have ever had. then down the road – instagram/tumblr/linkedin. time to begin a cheat sheet for the growing list of sites/apps that requires passwords. in a way, i like that for most apps – you can opt in to sign up by using Facebook log-ins. at least that i have memorized, same with wordpress.

i’m sitting at 500+ words for this post, time to get back to work and start clicking all the “Forgot Password” links for what i need to get ‘Family Sharing’ set up. aja aja fighting*

Love That Never Grows Old
by Juan Miguel Severo 

balang araw, ang mga brasong ito, ay hindi ka na kakayaning kargahin.
kukulubot na rin, ang mukha, na una mong minahal, maging ang mga gusaling nakasanayan natin – posibleng magiba at palitan.

may mga palayan tayong napuntahan
na magbibigay daan, sa pangalan umano ng pag-unlad
pero ikaw, tayo – tayo ang kailangan kong huwag magbago sa mundo.

kailangan kong malaman, na kung malagas man ang mga ngipin ko
kasabay ng mga taon, mapapasaya ka parin ng ngiti ko.
kailangan kong sabihin mong malinaw pa rin sa yo
ang pagtingin mo sa akin, kahit na lumabo na ang mga mata mo.
at kapag dumami na ang mga uban natin, at ang ulo ko ay nagmistulang mga bakanteng pahina ng isang aklat, ipangako mo sa akin
kuwento parin natin, ang hindi mo pagsasawaang isulat.

mahal, 
may mga araw tayong hindi na maalala pagdating ng panahon na iyun
ang ating mga kahapon ay posibleng kumupas, at sakupin ng bawat parating na ngayon.

pero kung sakali lang, na mapaisip ka, at matakot, kung tama ba, na mabuhay tayo ng magkasama
panghawakan mo ang ating kasaysayan, wag limutin ang pagsinta, magbalik tayo sa simula

yakapin mo ako sa bawat ngayon at bukas, gaano man malimutan ang mga nangyari sa gitna, balang araw, pupunuin ng pagtanda ng mga guhit ng ating mukha, rurupok ang ating mga buto, pero ikaw
ikaw parin ang paborito kong libro
at babasahin kita ng paulit-ulit hanggang sa huling pagtulog ko

nasasabik – sa mga bukas kapiling mo, ako

Adele – All I Ask

I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before, you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what is coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
Cause what if I never love again?

I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
Cause what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don’t wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain’t asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
Cause what if I never love again?

Making a hundred friends is not a miracle. The miracle is to make a single friend who will stand by your side even when hundreds are against you. 

Oh and having 3 -single friends are good too. Hahaha
