Web Logging

I honestly don't know what to write in this blog. I just feel somehow compelled to write something. Writing is something very close to my heart. It was a way for me to express my true emotions and pour out my disappointments when I was still younger. I remember back then, I would always resort to composing my thoughts on paper because I knew I couldn't share it to anyone. I could never find anyone who would be willing to listen to my sentiments. I was always the great listener but never the "talker".

Back then, I was able to pen my thoughts with such clarity and passion but things aren't the same now. I am at a lost for words and quite unsure what to say here. I must have gradually lost the gift of writing, but I want to revive it before it's completely gone. I don't want to be a "wicked servant" who didn't know how to use the "talent" given him. I sure want to make the best of life with what I've been dispensed with.

Words may not come easily to me now but I'm sure that as the days progressed, my writing prowess will be honed and I will be more confident of what I put here. I am excited how the next days of my life will unfold. Blogging is something new for me although it's just an old concept clothed in a new form. This is just what I need.

Can't get over it

I found out today that my brother-in-law just resigned from his job as a security officer. I totally disagree with his decision, to say the least. I mean, he has two sons to support, a nanny to pay, plus all the other expenses of a growing family. Will he just pass on the financial burdens to my sister? How could he even think of resigning from his work when he can't even provide a decent life to his family? He justifies his decision by saying he's not getting anywhere with his job and plans on going abroad. I hate to think that my sister is gonna shoulder all the financial responsibilities, but what can I do? She chose it. From the very start, I've been against their relationship but she defied all rationale and married that guy. Until now, I still can't get over it. I kept blaming my sister for being selfish. She hasn't been much help to the family. She studied for six years and started her own family barely a year after graduation. I thought I could rest for awhile when she finished school. I thought I'd have someone to share my responsibilities with. I just wish that she ended up with a better husband. Oh well, I really can't do anything anyway. It's their life. I jsut hope everything turns out alright. I don't want to say in the end, "See, I told you..."
