Allow me to share another bunch of growing flowers. I found them in the commercial lot in our neighborhood. They said that soon a building were rise in there. I been seeing them from our laundry area and finally I’ve decided to take a photo. I asked permission to the keeper of the lot to go in. Because no matter how beautiful your photographs are it would not matter if you are caught as a trespasser.

Aren’t they beautiful? There growing around the weeds, they bloomed through the rain and summer heat. They survived. Yet, there name is never known. So by posting them here, I am acknowledging these wild and beautiful flowers. How ironic is that some beauty is unknown and hiding. Do you know them?

            Let us dive in immediately. No more twisted introduction. This is the second of the three strangers whom I had a conversation in one day.

            The man asked me as soon as I exit the call center building. He was smiling. I understand his question and action is a part of his job description. After all I met a few of his kind. They call themselves as recruiter. They would stand for hours and discreetly screen passerby if they are looking for job.

            “Are there other people left in the recruitment area?” he asked

           “Yes there are still people in there. I am the first person who submitted my application.” I answered

            “How was it?” the recruiter asked

            “It was not good. The person in – charge told me that they have to pass my application to another department since I was not applying as a call center agent.” I replied

            We were slowly walking as we speak. I figure that he was avoiding something. Then he said the most important line that he probably told many people.

            “Why won’t you try applying with us? Our interviewer is in this fast food chain.”

            Bless him, that guy; he still smiled even though he knew what my response would be. I said no obviously. I reasoned that I can’t handle the lifestyle of a call center agent.

            “I’ve tried, you know. But I did not get the job.” I confessed

            “Well, maybe this time it would be different.” he said

            We went on talking. He talked how he landed the job. He eventually told me that security guards of the building are keeping an eye on him because he is the territory of their competitor. He said that it is common among call center agent recruiter. He assured me that as we speak some guys from the company that I’ve applied are also in their building trying to get new recruits.

            He was explaining about the benefits on working in the company that he represents when I received a call. I excuse myself to answer the phone call then afterwards I get back to him to tell him that I’d be heading to my other appointment.

            Blabbering or not, he made me forget that I was having a bad day. May that guy achieve his dreams whatever they are.

the sunday currently

            Today I am celebrating my first anniversary in Singles for Christ (SFC). I can’t believe I made it. SFC community has been a lot of help to me. It helps discover myself more while nurturing my spiritual life. I hope to stay here while I’m single. How about are you involve with other community?

            You of all people know human’s life cycle. We were born; we live here on earth as temporary resident and God knows when death will come unto us.

            I feel you. Of course, I feel you. I understand your pain. Yours is a different kind of sorrow that I hope and pray to God would not happen to me. I understand you. I lost love ones too – family to be exact. I know how it goes. But, then again I can tell that it is your heart that hurts the most. It is the past that haunts you the most. I know, because, we human being talked about our past often occupying the present day. It is the history of our lives that sometimes we wished we had done things differently. You may ask how we would know if we are doing the right thing if we are unsure of our future. That my dear, I cannot answer. Perhaps, the answer to that question is one of the flaws of our existence.

           You know, I have been trying to organize my favorite quotes from Paper Towns but I always failed to comply for a long time. Yesterday it happened. I discovered that all I needed were a cold weather minus the internet connection.

            One of my favorite is from the scene where they played a game I spy while Q and his friends are on the road to New York. It goes like this, “I spy with my little eye something I really like.” I am tempted to post this on my Facebook. I would like to know how my friends would react.

            Here are my favorite quotes from Paper Towns. I hope you find them on your list too.

              Can you believe it? We are now on the seventh month of the year. I guess it is true that it is slow when we count the days, fast if we barely look at the calendar. I have been thinking if I have been productive enough despite of still having trouble in my finances. 

            Let us assess if the plans that I made for this year is happening or if they turned out to be unimportant plan that I totally ditch.
