summer's here!

summertime is at its peak once again!
graduations, the scorching heat, outings... summer manifestations. for sure almost everyone is planning for some kind of a get away, be it out-of-town, out-of-the country or even somewhere near.

me and my friends are planning some trips this summer and hopefully everything will push through according to plan. but for the mean time, i just settled for an afternoon of swimming at the clubhouse of an adjacent subdivision to cool down. together with my cousins, we trooped to the ponteverde clubhouse last sunday to beat the heat.

as i expected there were lots of people there especially in the late afternoon where the sun is at its highest. i thought having too many people around sharing "my" pool is a drag but hey, it's an opportunity to socialize with my neighbors and yes i must admit, time runs fast when you're having fun!

wherever you're planning to go this season, just make sure you plan ahead of time, plan well and enjoy every minute of it!

what about blah-ging?

finally i was able to put something here. resurrected from oblivion. this "blog" has been untouched for eternity.

so what made me write something in here? well, aside from constant prodding from friends mhel and ishna, i thought i should somehow give this blogging thing a try.

i haven't been writing since college and i felt my vocabulary and writing skills has somewhat deteriorated. so i thought keeping a blog may give a solution to that problem.

at first i find blogging too boring to keep as a hobby, and i still do. you know, having to accessorize your page with lots of whatever-you-call-these-things just to show how well you're keeping a blog. i hate looking at web pages with too many links, too many unnecessary add-ons. it's their blog anyway. who knows i might eat my words someday when this blogging thing sinks in to me and will eventually be a certified blog addict.

in the absence of someone to talk to, blogging enters the scene. similar to an on-line diary, you can write your thoughts without having the need for someone to listen to you. i have lots of friends i can hang out with and talk to, but i feel some things are still worth being blogged about.

so maybe the blogging world will be seeing a lot of me from now on. dunno, depending on my mood. i hope that through this i'll be able to polish my writing skills again, and restore my interest in reading and writing. pardon the flaws, i'm still getting the hang of it.

to me, welcome to the blogging world!!!
