    Over a decade ago, I created a list of soft rules or things I wanted to live by. I wanted the list to be a guideline for how I’d deal with life, people, and experiences. Anyway, I checked out my old blog from 2009 and found the list. I updated it, so it will be more applicable to where my life is currently at. Here it goes: 1. If you want to understand a person, do not listen to what…

    He and I are complete opposites of each other. He likes to blend in; I like to stand out. He likes to go unnoticed; I enjoy a dramatic entrance. He prefers to fade in the background; I aim to get the spotlight. He likes to shut up; I love to talk. He likes to be right all the time; I enjoy giving corrections. It is a messy thing, him and I. However, we do have our moments. Sometimes, there are…

    This post is a day late. My late stepmother’s birthday was yesterday. However, as always, I have been caught up in work and other personal stuff, so I wasn’t able to stop and write about something. She was a fun person. She wasn’t the usual stepmother character that used to be portrayed in fiction where she had imaginary horns and always made things difficult. In fact, she was kind and nice to me. She did not treat me like a…

I have so many people to thank the Lord for. As hard as life has been, I think I’d gladly go through all of the hardships again, if it meant I’d still end up where I am now. I will always be thankful for the friends I have…

  • No Other Woman – Not a Review at All

    October 16, 2011 ishabelle

    I was with my mom when I watched this movie. I have to admit, I watched it because Anne Curtis is my mom’s favorite. She watches Showtime everyday (I swear). Watching this movie was not even a question. I have read so many reviews and comments about No Other Woman. Most of them had biases (no matter how objective they say they are). Some of them just wanted to write or blog about it, not really caring if the content…

  • The Fight That Brought Peace

    August 27, 2011 ishabelle

    People who are married, are in a relationship or have been in previous romantic experiences know that fighting is inevitable. As much as we want to avoid getting into a fight with our partners, Fate seems to laugh at the effort and throws random fights along your way. It always starts with a petty disagreement that even sic-year old kids wouldn’t be caught fighting about. Then it morphs into a full blown declaration of war where two people emotionally or…
