You can only give much of yourself to someone and you can only HOPE that they give much of themselves back.
You may say that I’m wrong with this; that when you give, you should not expect something in return. I may agree with you if it is as simple as you gave someone a bread and expect nothing in return.
But when it comes to relationships - either romantic, platonic or friendships - you need that “something” in return. For example, when you love someone and you give a part of yourself to him or her, you expect them to love you back (or else, you;re just being played.)
However, don’t expect others to give what you have been given. When you love someone, don’t expect the same intensity or the same ways of expression to be given back to you.
At the end of the day, just be thankful if you have received the same thing you have been given and you can only hope for reciprocation if not.
I miss this Tumblog but sadly, I’m not this person anymore. Got to have a fresh start, time for a new perspective.

Look, the break up happened. There’s no sense in trying to apologize now, whether you were the dumper or the dumpee. Words like this are nothing but a sign of weakness. Forgive, forget and move on.
Let’s Hang Out
We all think we can be friends with our exes, until we realize we can’t. Very rarely will you be able to hang out with an old flame without things getting complicated or painful. And if you’re asking to hang out soon after the split, odds are you have ulterior motives that should not be seen through.
The Wink ;-)
A simple emoticon like this could send the message that you’re flirting, which will throw you into a game you won’t win. Texts are now for words only, so keep both eyes open!
I Need Advice
It’s almost impossible to be objective with an ex. Don’t let yours advise you in your future relationships or any other area of your life; he/she no longer has your best interests in mind after a break up. And let’s be honest, you’re only asking for advice as an excuse to contact him/her or to let your old flame know that you have a new horse in the stables.
I Love You
Whether it’s because you think it’s what they want to hear or because you really feel it, saying “I love you” to an ex does nothing but open up a gaping wound to infection. Don’t drag this out. Just let bygones be bygones.
What Are You Wearing?
Everybody knows this little phrase is meant to get the sexting going. Avoid it at all costs. You don’t want to sext your ex because, even if he/she plays along, it’s just a temporary distraction from your unhappiness. You two are no longer together, and this will result in nothing but embarrassment.
Once you send a dirty picture, you can never get it back. You never know what a scorned lover will do with photos of your lady or man bits, so it’s best to keep that to yourself. Even if your ex doesn’t have malicious intentions, sending unsolicited dirty pictures his/her way will be mortifying should he/she not be interested in them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JV!!!
Dahil wala akong maisip na ipangganti para sa ginawa mo sa picture ko nung birthday mo eh eto na lang. Madami pa akong dapat i-uupload kaso natatanga ako sa bagong format ng Tumblr.
Pano ba yan, bente ka na? Di mo na magagamit yung nasa description ng blog mo. :) HAHAHA. Alam kong late na itong post ko dahil kahapon pa ang birthday mo pero ayos lang din. Pagbutihin mo ang pag-aaral mo. Alam kong sinumpong ka ng katamaran nung nakaraang taon pero sana ayusin mo na ha? DI pa rin ako makapaniwalang lagpas isang taon na tayong magkakilala, marami na ring nangyari sa isang mahigit isang taon na yun pero eto, magkaibigan pa rin tayo. Andito lang din naman ako palagi pag kailangan mo ako.
Okay, wala na akong masabi, wala talaga akong kwenta sa mga ganitong bagay. HAHAHA. Happy birthday ulit bestfriend! :) See you soon!
Hiring managers and HR pros will often close out a job interview by asking an applicant if he or she has any questions themselves. This is a great opportunity to find out more about the job and the company’s expectations, but you can’t forget that the interviewer hasn’t stopped judging YOU. Here are 5 questions that can make a bad impression on your interviewer, scuttling your chances for getting the job.
1. “When will I be promoted?:
This is one of the most common questions that applicants come up with, and it should be avoided, says Rebecca Woods, Vice President of Human Resources at Doherty Employer Services in Minneapolis. “It’s inappropriate because it puts the cart before the horse.” Instead of asking when the promotion will occur, Woods says a better approach is to ask what you would need to do to get a promotion.
2. “What’s the salary for this position?”
Asking about salary and benefits in the first interview “always turns me off,” says Norma Beasant, founder of Talento Human Resources Consulting and an HR consultant at the University of Minnesota. “I’m always disappointed when they ask this, especially in the first interview.” Beasant says the first interview is more about selling yourself to the interviewer, and that questions about salary and benefits should really wait until a later interview.
3. “When can I expect a raise?”
Talking about compensation can be difficult, but asking about raises is not the way to go about it, Woods says. So many companies have frozen salaries and raises that it makes more sense to ask about the process to follow or what can be done to work up to higher compensation level. Talking about “expecting” a raise, Woods says, “shows a person is out of touch with reality.”
4. “What sort of flextime options do you have?”
This kind of question can make it sound like you’re interested in getting out of the office as much as possible. “When I hear this question, I’m wondering, are you interested in the job?” Beasant says. Many companies have many options for scheduling, but asking about it in the first interview is “not appropriate,” Beasant says.
5. Any question that shows you haven’t been listening.
Woods said she interviewed an applicant for a position that was 60 miles from the person’s home. Woods told the applicant that the company was flexible about many things, but it did not offer telecommuting. “At the end of the interview, she asked if she would be able to work from home,” Woods says. “Was she even listening? So some ‘bad questions’ can be more situational to the interview itself.”
With the economy the way it is, employers are much more choosy and picky, Beasant says. Knowing the questions to avoid in an interview can help you stand out — in a good way.| Catherine Conlan, Monster Contributing Writer
