Another Test [I'm Bored, Obviously]

Myers Briggs Test Results

ENFP - "Journalist". Uncanny sense of the motivations of others. Life is an exciting drama. 8.1% of total population.
Extroverted (E) 100% Introverted (I) 0%
Intuitive (N) 100% Sensing (S) 0%
Feeling (F) 83.33% Thinking (T) 16.67%
Perceiving (P) 83.33% Judging (J) 16.67%

Split Brain

Brain Lateralization Test Results
Right Brain (52%) The right hemisphere is the visual, figurative, artistic, and intuitive side of the brain.
Left Brain (50%) The left hemisphere is the logical, articulate, assertive, and practical side of the brain
Left brain dominant individuals are more literal, articulate, and to the point. They are good at understanding directions and anything that is explicit and logical. They can have trouble comprehending emotions and abstract concepts, they can feel lost when things are not clear, doubting anything that is not stated and proven.

Right brain dominant individuals are more visual and intuitive. They are better at summarizing multiple points, picking up on what's not said, visualizing things, and making things up. They can lack attention to detail, directness, and the ability to explain their ideas verbally, leaving them unable to communicate effectively.

Overall you appear to have farely Equal Hemispheres
*Left/right functions are measured separately so they usually won't add up to 100%
The ideal is to develop both your left and right brain. Many people identify their personality with being more right or left brained. "I am just not verbal" or "I just don't like art". The right and left brain are just functions to be utilized, they are not who you are. You are the manager, coach, architect, developer of your functions. No matter how developed one side of your mind is, if you have deficiencies in the other you will be functionally crippled. Right brain deficiencies inhibit your comprehension of life - who you are, where you stand, what's the point. Left brain deficiencies will inhibit your ability to express yourself verbally to others, leaving you mute to the world.

An Excerpt

I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent,
distant & full of sorrow as though you had died.
One word then, one smile, is enough.
And I am happy, happy that it's not true.

-- from Pablo Neruda's 'XV I Like For You To Be Still'

Restlessly Calm


You have a Calm Soul! Being calm and cool is what you do best. You collected thoughts and always positive attitude make you very bright and logical. When theres a problem, you know how to approach it, and solve it. Your friends rely on you on their problems, and your shoulder for their crying. You are peaceful, and enjoy nature and freedom. You rarely get angry and hardly scream, which makes you good with kids. You seem to be in tune with the world and if anything goes wrong, you always bounce back.

Yeah. Strike two. This morning though, I had gotten up from bed & got all dressed up & even gotten out of the house. I got as far as the LRT's Betty Go-Belmonte station when I received Karla's (THANKS!!!Ü) message that classes were suspended. That was around 7am already. I had to confirm first if the school had just announced it & when she said yes, I got off at the next station in Cubao & took the train going back to Legarda. I got back at 8am & "celebrated" by watching Laws of Attraction on DVD.

Yesterday I didn't get all dressed up for school because I had gotten up late from bed & I already had an inkling that classes were gonna get suspended because of the weather. The rain had started pouring at 3am yesterday (I was awake) & when I woke up at 530am, it was still pouring. I got as far as brushing my teeth yesterday. When I went out of my room, I checked outside to see if the streets were flooded. True enough, our street was flooded. So I just told my parents that I won't be going to school anymore. Went back to bed & slept until TJ texted me the official announcement that classes were suspended from 930am onwards. I guess it was a good call for me because my Wednesday starts at 930am (I miss Father Dacanay already. hehe).

So, what else have I done today? NOTHING. I planned to finish my Theology readings for our weekly Friday quiz (that's tomorrow) after watching the movie but when I plopped myself on my bed, my eyes got heavy & I just allowed myself to sleep. And I just slept.

It's almost 130pm now & our lunch hasn't arrived yet. Mom's gonna come home soon with food from the store. It's worth the wait that's why I'm still waiting. heheÜ

Ok. I think I should go back upstairs to my room & do some real studying.

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I do not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

I'm Hungry. Where's Lunch?


What a relief. Not been getting enough sleep these past few weeks.

Had my Theo orals last night at 6pm. I think I aced it. (crossing my fingers) Father Dacanay asked me 2 follow-up questions & I think I was able to answer them to his satisfaction because he nodded after I gave him my answers. I actually almost panicked when he asked me his first question. I was surprised that he suddenly spoke because he didn't say anything during my first orals with him. I tried to clarify what exactly he was asking but he just gave me a blank stare. I just took a chance that his silence meant "yes" so I went on to answer what I thought he was asking for & I think I hit the right spot. (Whew!)

It was a good thing Jay was in school yesterday. I had asked for a "pre-orals" with him so I could make sure that I remembered all the things I prepared for. We actually didn't get to finish all the thesis statements (there were 5) but the thesis statement I got was one of those I was able to "practice". I owe you, Jay!!!Ü

Now I'm off to do other things for my major subjects. I'm not so enthusiastic about my majors this semester, by the way. Ugh.

I wish you were here...

For Joyce

Joycie... *HuG*

You know, the best advice that was given to me about being lost is to always go home to God. I don't wanna burst your bubble but even when the people we love cannot or don't seem to want to help us, it is only He that is always there to guide us welcome us back to Him (mala-Prodigal Son). We just have to offer all our hurts & burdens to Him & trust that He is always with us -- that we are never alone.

And you know who gave me this advice?

The one that I love.Ü

And never has this advice failed me. (Ginagawa ko s'ya ngayon, actually.Ü)

Tama si Chris, love will find a way to heal. Lalo na kapag humingi tayo ng tulong sa Kanya.

I'm always praying for you, Joyce.

P.S. Advertise ko lang ulit. Take Fr. Dacanay for your Theo 131 next year, ok?Ü hehe

Salamat sa 'yo, mahal ko, nasaan ka man ngayon...

Lost Sheep

Question of the day:

What is the center of your life?

Tears brimmed my eyes after this was asked by my Philosophy teacher. I was ashamed of myself. I know what my answer SHOULD BE, but for some reason, I do not feel that I am worthy to say so. I am guilty of keeping myself away from You.

Wait for me. I'm coming home to You.

You're the greatest love the world has ever known
A love that never ceases to embrace a weary heart
And give a brand new start
Provides light where the sun has never shown
And now I understand that I am here
Because of Your love

-- The Prodigal Son's Lullaby by Nyoy Volante

My inner child is sixteen years old!

Life's not fair! It's never been fair, but while adults might just accept that, I know something's gotta change. And it's gonna change, just as soon as I become an adult and get some power of my own.

The Answer

Grabe. Hindi ko akalaing maraming matatamaan sa previous post ko. Salamat sa mga nag-comment.Ü

So, ano nga ba ang sagot sa tanong?

Well, tama si Michee. Parehong masakit.


I'd have to say, mas mahirap ang MANG-IWAN.


Let's look at it from both sides.

Kapag naiwanan ka, masakit. There's no doubt about it. Syempre ayaw mong mawala 'yung tao, pero ayaw na nga n'ya, tulad nga ng sabi ni Michee.

Kapag nang-iwan ka naman, masakit din. But, in terms of coping, mas mahirap. Bakit? Kasi, may desisyon kang kailangang panindigan. Lalo na kung ayaw mo talagang pakawalan 'yung tao, pero alam mong it's for the best of the both of you kaya mo s'ya iniwan.

Kumbaga, 'pag naiwan ka, puro puso, kasi masakit. 'Pag nang-iwan ka, may puso na, pati utak mo ginugulo ka pa.

But I'm not saying I'm right. It's just how I understand it from what I experienced.

It's all relative.

Kumusta ka na?

Saturday, August 07, 2004

A Question Answered

Matagal ko nang tinatanong at gustong malaman kung ano ba talaga ang mas masakit:


Lagi na lang kasi akong naiiwan. Curious lang ako kung ano ba ang pagkakaiba. Gusto kong malaman kung anong pakiramdam ng mang-iwan.

At dahil sa 'yo, ngayon alam ko na.

Sana alam mo kung gaano ako nagpapasalamat sa 'yo.

Sana alam mo...

Kung paano ako

Bakit kamo?
H'wag na nating pag-usapan.
Pero ang 'di ko maintindihan
Ba't 'di ko nalaman?

Tonight you calm my restlessness... You relieve my sadness...

'Di na naman ako nakapagpigil. Bumigay na naman ako. Hay nako. Kailan ba ako matututo? At first, I thought things would go smoothly. No intense feelings or emotions. Pero nung sabi n'ya: "I hope ur ok." Wala na. Bumigay na ako. Bigla na lang akong naiyak sa sinabi nyang yun. Bakit? Kasi hindi ako ok. Hindi lang naman dahil sa kanya, dahil din sa maraming bagay (refer to previous post). E bakit ako naiyak na parang timang? Hay.

Kailangan pa ba'ng i-memorize 'yan?!?

Kailangan kita...
