You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...


-Walt Whitman

signing off


I
THINK IT'S ABOUT TIME TO REST THE FINGERS that forged too many words, but most importantly, to free my mind just for a little while. i am sorry guys if i wasn't able to reply to your comments nor drop by and read from you. i promise i'll make it up to you when i get back (i don't know when...yet).



i am going to miss writing but i'll miss reading from you more. this blog have lived up to it's purpose. i have learned so much from you. thanks for sharing with me pieces of yourselves and for taking time to read my ridiculously long posts. my four months of being a blogger has been a blast because of you.


i'll be celebrating my 22nd birthday this coming december 1st. i think it's time for me to grow up. i wish i know how.

happy holidays !(in case I won't be around when christmas comes)

but no goodbyes. not just yet.

Mugen said...

Sagittarians like us are natural wanderers. We constantly seek the truth and meaning of things. I wish you well in your new journey.

A writer is always a writer. Maybe sometime, when you're able to sort things out, you will find yourself weaving words again.

See you when I see you.

PROSETITUTE said...

you're one of the best bloggers around you know...

advanced happy holidays!

Jake Tornado said...

Happy Birthday, Ron. I wish you all the best.

Just remember, you're blogging only for yourself and not for your readers.

22? You're still young and the opportunities for you out there is nearly infinite. At that age, I was still partying almost every night.

Cheers to you dude!

kalansaycollector said...

buti naman.

we are waiting for your homecoming. ;)

REDLAN said...

uy, happy birthday!

mrs.j said...

hmmm..

why so sudden...:(

happy bday :P

PUSANG-gala said...

OMG---OMG----Ron, why too soon? yeah, your posts are rediculously long at inaabot ako ng syam-syam matapos at maintindihan kasi limited ang vocabulary ko so naghahanap pako ng meaning sa dictionary pero natutuwa naman ako kasi pakiramdam ko nasa college literature parin ako-----

....and yeah, blogging is one way or another about satisfying our egoistic aspects but it surely does more than that....for me it's growing up with other bloggers and learning from their stories. You are definitely one of them. you have been my pill everyday and it will surely be a lot different now that you will not be that active.....

....why is everybody saying goodbye these days?

be back soon mate okay, then again, I am not in the position to stop you from doing your hearts will. I guess what I am saying is.....we will be missing you. Take care mate.......

gentle said...

hi ron... ngayon ko lag nabasa to. wherever you're going.. be back soon ok. will miss your posts.

Denis said...

happy 22 brother!

i know you'll be back

REDLAN said...

bumalik ka na? or bumisita lang?

at last, nakuha ko na ang gusto ko. na top ko rin ang pagcomment dito.

hehehe

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

god bless. be back. as ferbert said, "once a blogger, always a blogger." for everything else, you still have a home to come back to.

goodluck on your boards. may the cosmic powers merge just to be with you.

joaqui_miguel said...

Happy Birthday!

If you feel you must, then I will support you.

I really hope it won't be too long though. :)

You will surely be missed. :)
