PMS-ing a few hours before my day

19 Nov

A lot of people have a habit of greeting others a day before their birthdays.

Well, today is only the 19th! It’s not my birthday yet! It would have been okay if they would say, “Happy Birthday in advance!” instead of greeting me as if it’s already my birthday. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate their greetings. However, I just preferred to be greeted on my birthday itself.

Tomorrow's my birthday so wait for the people on this calendar to look at "20"

My birthday is on 20 Nov and it’s SO NOT today.

[PMS-ing, much? Yeah, I know! Hahaha!]

Eeewww… A year older…

19 Nov

Goodbye, 25! (my half-eaten birthday cake last year)

I will be (26 years old) a year older tomorrow. Yuck! (Hahaha!)

I honestly like Christmas more. I even forgot that my birthday’s tomorrow! It was my officemate who reminded me a few hours ago. And my friend’s boyfriend, who also is a friend of mine, already greeted me via e-mail.

Anyhow, I know my very loving boyfriend is preparing a surprise for me. I wonder what his surprise/s would be… 🙂

[FYI: People say that I’m cursed with surprises. Everytime my friends or my boyfriend try to prepare surprises for me, I always end up finding out what their suprises are even before surprising me! Hahaha!]


Really now, I have nothing to wish for. I’m contented with my boyfriend’s conversion. Albeit I must say he did not do it for me as an early birthday gift. He did it for himself. (It’s true! It’s true!)

It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!!!

Leap of Faith

“This is the day which the Lord has made…” Psalm 118:24

7 November 2009 — This was the day the Lord made my boyfriend a Catholic! Yup, CATHOLIC!!! 🙂

People go to Vegas to get married in a jiffy. We went to San Isidro Labrador Parish in Marikina to have him baptized in a jiffy.

The Parish Office

As far as I know, a non-Catholic who wishes to convert to Catholicism should undergo the Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) before getting baptized. And that’s a long process. But that’s not the case in Marikina.

On 23 October 2009, we tried contacting Immaculate Concepcion Parish in Concepcion and San Isidro Labrador Parish in Greenland Village. The document San Isidro asked for was easy to obtain so we went there the next day to schedule his baptism. The priest just interviewed him after showing him his birth certificate.

We are not getting married soon (albeit we think we should reserve our wedding date because the church we REALLY want is VERY popular. Pressure!!! We still have to set the target date). He has yet to receive the other sacraments (Reconciliation/Penance, the Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation). Also, we did this without his family’s knowledge. Even if his parents already knew that he had plans of converting, we will wait for the right time to inform them about what we did. (Actually, his father has no problems with it because he was a Catholic and is a non-practicing Iglesia ni Cristo member).

We still have some things to deal with before tying the knot. Right now, we’re just so happy with his conversion.



P.S. My parents are his godparents, by the way. Hahaha!
