Well Me???

I'm Ruby Ejercito, You can call me Ruby...I was born in September 1989. I attended school in Pampanga (somewhere in Angeles City) where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Tourism. By no surprise my favorite hobbies are watching TV and of course surfing the internet. If I had to choose just one thing, it would be my phone with an internet access. LOL!!! Some scientists found that using the internet may improve our brain function. (If that’s true, my brain must be freaking amazing). I’d rather stay at home flicking my finger over the screen than partying outside. I am so proud to be a homebody!!!

I am a type of person who works really hard for what I want because I know that it won’t come to me without an effort. I started blogging when I enrolled my masters. It’s required in one of my subjects though it's not my cup of tea,I really want to become enthusiastic about it.



“Nakakahawa ang DEPRESSION” 

Whenever I am happy, there's a little voice telling me that I shouldn't be, and making me feel like I shouldn't be happy at all. Whenever I go out with friends and do something that I enjoy, a woman used to tell me that, “TOO MUCH HAPPINESS CAN MAKE YOU UNHAPPY”.

According to her, we often experience sadness than happiness (she’s such a pessimist, isn’t she?). This kind of attitude is what I’ve learned from her since when I was young. So I used a motto that would really match my personality and I even wrote this in our High school year book.
“Expect the worst so you won’t be disappointed”

 When I feel happy, I usually hold it back because I think sooner; I will be experiencing unbearable sadness. When we have a family problem, I know I can’t help with that and it causes me to have a very low self-esteem or self-hatred and it makes me feel that I don’t deserve to be happy. I know that depression can cause these types of feelings, so I am writing this “para di ako mabaliw” hahaha.

I can’t consider myself as a less fortunate because I have enough money to buy what I want, I save up for myself, I don’t have debt  and I live in a good roof. I hope there will be NO misunderstanding here coz I don’t think I am bragging. I am sure that there are some people who are causing me to feel this way. I am surrounded by people who are so depressed!!! “nakakahawa ang depression”. So I came up with a GOOD solution. I HAVE TO GET AWAY! ( haha parang madali noh?,) they need sympathy. They need me but I am not keen on handling people who are depressed. So I came up with a BEST solution, which is to PRAY for them. That is the best thing I can do. There's enough struggling and suffering in life so there is nothing wrong about being happy when you are. May mga tao kasi na pag masaya ka, tapos sila malungkot, Nagagalit... bat ganon? Pwede mo silang damayan, pero you shouldn't sacrifice your own happiness. You know OPTIMISM is a good vibes magnet. Avoid negative self-talk, it doesn't bring happiness.


"honor your father and mother"

Wonderful people in my Life <3

I know it’s a bit awkward for me to write something about my parents because I am too old for this kind of topic, but since I really want to show how grateful I am for having such wonderful parents, I think they deserve to have a space in my blog site.

I love my parents not only because they gave me life, I love them because of many reasons. I have my ups and downs but my parents are always there to protect, guide, and love me for who I am. They may have different parenting style but I still love them equally; they just have their own ways of showing their parental affection.

I know that my mom will do anything for me and my sister, she disciplined us with love and care. I thank her for being strict even if it’s too much. She made me realize that, “without discipline there is no success at all”. I also thank my dad for guiding me and making my life easier. I really owe them a debt of gratitude.

They may not be perfect parents, they have mistakes as all humans have. I feared my mom for being too tight and sensitive and I hated my dad for being too kind. But then I am really thankful because they have raised me well. One thing I admire about them, after college, they let me live my life the way I want it to and let me enjoy the fruit of my hard work. They always tell me to save money for myself. It’s good to hear those things from my parents but I always look forward to do something that would make them realize that, indeed, they have raised me well. I thank God for giving me the most wonderful parents and I promise to honor them for the rest of my life. <3
