*sigh*

Well, there’s been a lot going lately, can’t deny that I’ve never been so flustered since college. But looking at myself at this very moment, I feel so alive. The combination of emotions that is stirring up my mind is a combination I won’t ever forget. Anxiety, Hatred, Confusion, Disarray but also Happiness. The one thing I could tell is that out of all those feelings, the one at the end overshadows them.
That certain happiness is within grasp. Just near and warm that I can feel it every moment I breathe.  The message is normal but it feels so real and full. I’m not sure if I should be fooled but yet I yearn to be. Yet this moment, I am appalled on what I should be doing next. I can only hope for the best and expect the bombardment of impending doom. There might come the time to realize that standing across from someone in a white majestic event will always and only be a dream to me. The current of ideas flowing through my mind are like destined to be still and stale all the time as I speak and listen and learn that how much I talk and do… *silence*

I have not given up though. The rest lies on the next steps to be taken in the waves of time. Here I stand, hear me hear me oh dear God. What am I to do?

Personality

Hi there!

So here I am taking up another test. I don’t know why I am very fond of taking tests about me but, yeah, I just do. It’s another Personality Test~ though it does fixate me as I continue to learn who I really am. Without further ado, here it is:

INFJ (Introvert/Intuitive/Feeling/Judging)

The INFJ type is believed to be very rare (less than 1 percent of the population) and it has an unusual set of traits. Even though their presence can be described as very quiet, INFJ personalities usually have many strong opinions, especially when it comes to issues they consider really important in life. If an INFJ is fighting for something, this is because they believe in the idea itself, not because of some selfish reasons.

NFJ personalities are drawn towards helping those in need – they may rush to the place of a major disaster, participate in rescue efforts, do charity work etc. INFJs see this as their duty and their purpose in life – people with this personality type firmly believe that nothing else would help the world as much as getting rid of all the tyrants. Karma and similar concepts are very attractive to INFJs.

These tendencies are also strengthened by the fact that INFJ personalities have a unique combination of idealism and decisiveness – this means that their creativity and imagination can be directed towards a specific goal. Few other personality types have this trait and this is one of the most important reasons why many INFJs are able to eventually realize their dreams and make a lasting positive impact.

INFJs are masters of written communication, with a distinctively smooth and warm language. In addition, the sensitivity of INFJs allows them to connect to others quite easily. Their easy and pleasant communication can often mislead bystanders, who might think that the INFJ is actually an extrovert.

INFJs should be careful to avoid “overheating” as their zeal and determination can sometimes get out of hand. As introverts, INFJs need to have some “alone time” every once in a while or otherwise their internal energy reserves will get depleted really quickly. If this happens, the INFJ may surprise everybody around them by withdrawing from all their activities for a while – and since other people usually see INFJs as extroverts, this can leave them both surprised and concerned.

INFJs take great care of other people’s feelings and expect others to return the favor. Unsurprisingly, people with this personality type are very sensitive and vulnerable to conflicts – even the most rational INFJs may find it quite difficult to not take criticism personally. This is the INFJ’s Achilles’ heel – if someone with an INFJ personality cannot escape the conflict, they will do their best to deal with it head on, but this will result in a lot of stress and may also potentially lead to health problems or highly irrational behavior.

Some famous INFJs:

  • Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter
  • Goethe
  • Mel Gibson
  • Mother Teresa
  • Martin Luther King
  • Nelson Mandela
  • Nicole Kidman
  • James Wilson from House M.D.

Exquisitely, I enjoyed as I read word per word the details inside and frankly I was surprised that INFJs are less than 1% of the population. So that means I am that rare? Nonetheless, this gives me a better idea on how to enjoy life, to make myself better and to be better person for others. These simple insights I gather from everyday is the best moments of my life, being someone who has selective memory. Well, I will not take up much more of your time guys. I know you all are busy. Have a great night! :D

Year Ender

Year 2014. 1:02 am.

 

And it’s a new year again. 2014. Happy New Year everyone! I wish everyone who could read this the best New Year they could ever had. We all had a lot of challenges we came through and a lot of moments to enjoy too. Everyone deserves a clean slate after it.

 

My 2013 has been as awesome as ever. First and foremost, graduating from personally the best University to ever graduate in, University of Santo Tomas. Although having multiple deficiencies, HRM, Cisco and one more P.E. subject, I managed to push myself as hard as I can to get my diploma within 4 years as the course dictates. I have never thought I could do it, but look where I am now. That erased the doubt I have for myself.

 

Second, getting a job 2 months after graduation. As all people know, it’s actually quite hard getting a job these days. You have a lot of rivals on every position and sometimes everyone has more experience that you have a fresh graduate. And here I am working in a prestigious company. I assume I am doing well in my life.

 

Third and last, I am extremely happy on the setting of my life. I have friends I can rely on. Friends that I could be with to enjoy every moment of my life. I am excited to start the 2nd to the last chapter of my life which is of course the longest one. I am forever grateful of the people I am close with now and I hope I continue to bond with them until the time ends. I am still uneasy sometimes but I am sure that I am never alone walking through this forsaken land of corrupt officials. Kidding. :)

 

The world is a scary place. But when you are with the best people (family and friends) everything is like the best moment of every day of every year. You just have to believe in them, in God and the people who are around you who are true to you. Happy New Year people! May the New Year become your best year and let you enjoy the life we are living in. God bless and stay safe. Include me in your prayers as I shall too! :)

 

Sadly, time to rest. There is work tomorrow. :| Ciao~
