Gotta Get Thru This

Some survival tips, Raft3r style:

Never EVER tell a girl that she's fat.

Cheating and lying will definitely get you ahead but can corrupt the soul.

A good first impression is vital.

Learn to say NO.

Money will always get you into trouble.

Don't let others see your weakness.

A smile goes a long way.

Pick your battles.

Be street smart.

When all else fails, flirt.

Ball And Chain

Raft3r will not marry for all the wrong reasons.

I don't want to get hitched just so I can prove my masculinity.

Marriage is also not the solution to an unplanned pregnancy.

Your marital status does not define who you are.

Matrimony is not the answer to loneliness.

But I will get married for money.

The Path Of Thorns (Terms)

Do you know why bad things happen to good people?

It is life's way of letting them know that it's time to toughen up a bit and turn on the bitch factor.

Closing Time

In 6 months time, The Deadbeat Club closes its doors.

Yes, all good things must come to an end.

Wait. Lemme rephrase that.

It's a good thing that The Deadbeat Club will finally close its door in 6 months time.

In a span of almost 5 years, I learned to open up to total strangers. I was able to express my thoughts and be judged by others because of this.

While many laughed, most readers found my sarcasm a bit too much to handle.

But it is Raft3r's sarcasm that kept this blog afloat.

So without any sarcasm, I'd like to thank YOU for being such a huge part of The Deadbeat Club.

Raft3r simply could not have done this without YOU.

Just A Feeling

Vulnerability is the common denominator among humans.

You Make Me Sick

Do you really think you are that good?

Boy, you should hear what people say behind your back.

That would surely crush your overinflated ego.

Nice To Know You

Raft3r starts his new job next week.

After 15 years, I finally get to practice what I learned in school.

Yes, Raft3r is now an HR Practitioner.

I believe this is the first time I even blogged about what I do for a living. Someone actually thought that Raft3r's a traveling salesman.

Without much HR work experience, I have nothing to offer but my good looks. (You can puke now, if you want.)

But I'm excited as hell and craving for new challenges.

Hello, new job. It's a pleasure to meet you.

Please don't give me any reason not to like you.

Hello Stranger

On board Eva Air bound for SanFo, Raft3r caught snippets of a Thai flick shot in Korea.

A year after that trip, I found a DVD copy of the movie at the local video store.

It's called Hello Stranger.

Here are a few things I learned from this funny Chantavit Dhanasevi/Nuengthida Sophon starrer:

1) You can do a lot of crazy things while visiting a foreign land.

2) Opposites do attract.

3) Reading subtitles can be a daunting task.

4) Korean motels are far more bizarre than their Pinoy counterparts.

5) Regardless of age, gender, and race, relationships are always tumultuous.

6) This is the sappy Asian version of Before Sunrise.

7) When a romantic comedy is done just right, even a hardened cynic like Raft3r can still get giddy.

I Get Lonely

Why choose to be sad and depressed when it's way easier to be happy and gay?

Almost Doesn't Count

Three things to accomplish in 2012:

1. New job;
3. New Apple toys to play with.

Now, if only I got the dough to splurge on the new iPad...
