Hi ! RenxKyoko Iglesias here.
So, my last post was on April 26. That was exactly 2 months ago. ( Right, , Captain Obvious). Now I won’t give an excuse like I’ve been busy, yadiya, but I do feel I’m starting to lose my muse………. oh, alright, I’ve been busy. I’m putting in at least 10 hours of work everyday, from Monday to Sunday. I have 2 jobs, you know. Plus, all my free time is spent watching Netflix, mostly TV series that I never had time to watch when they were on, such as Poirot, Midsomer Murders, Fringe, Medium, 100s, etc., and animes such as Hunter x Hunter,( 100 episodes at 25 minutes per episode ) Moribito, and currently Inuyasha , which ends at 193 episode … I finished the whole dang thing yesterday, at 3 AM. Well, after work is the only time I have, so don’t judge. . I can’t multi task when I watch animes. They are in Japanese, so I’m pretty much stuck in the couch reading the English subtitles. About InuYasha…. it is addicting. I love all the characters, except, believe it or not, the main character, InuYasha. He’s a freakin’ moron, indecisive, and a two-timing scoundrel. I dislike him so much that I feel I just wasted 85 hours of my life watching this character being a stupid/ idiot. Die, InuYasha ! Other than that , the anime is one great fantasy/action/thriller story.
So, if you’re so busy doing your thing, Ren, why are you posting now ? Well, something happened a few days ago that made the wheel in my head churning again . My best friend “O” is supposed to get married on July 10, in Southern California ( I live in Northern California ), and I’m a ” witness” in her court wedding. ( not church wedding ) I already bought my plane ticket, and arranged sleeping accomodations ( lucky to have my brother living there ) …….then 2 days ago, I received a text from O that the wedding was cancelled, permanently. According to her, her ” fiancé” has been living a double life ( they’ve been living together for 2 years ) , is actually married, and has a child. I was dumbfounded. I hung out with her at their apartment, playing video games ( we’re not even done yet with Resident Evil, we both suck at it ), and yeah, the ” fiancé” was always there. And he was nice. What the heck. No wonder he wanted to hold the wedding at a place 600 miles from our city….. I wondered about that…… now I know. So, when exactly does he plan to drop the bomb before he commits BIGAMY ? What’s even more mortifying is the fact that this guy is a police officer ,and a Captain , at that. My best friend is also a police officer, by the way. Dang it. It felt like my own stomach got punched, so I cannot even imagine what she’s feeling now. I don’t know what I can do to make her feel better, besides trashing and badmouthing him to death. That scumbag. I’m not generalizing, folks, but seriously, we women always get the short end of the stick….. my friend and yeah, his wife, too. Worse for his wife, to be honest. Aaargh ! Oh, man . The heck !
This reminds me of another break- up, but this time, the douchebag is my guy cousin. He and his fiancée were about to get married….. church schedule already set, wedding invitations, check, wedding dress, check. So what happened ? My cousin had a co-worker who had a humungous crush on him since forever. The woman invited him one day to dinner after work as farewell gift and according to him, a closure on her love. ( my cousin was aware she liked him. ) He obliged….. the problem was, they had drinks too many, and I assume, the woman was desperate, and men being men, he got her pregnant. Was the wedding cancelled ? Yes. Did he marry the pregnant woman, ? No. Though he was threatened with a shotgun wedding by the woman’s family, he still refused, ( he consulted with my aunt …* my aunt is a judge* , regarding legal matters, like , was he legally obliged to marry her, and so forth ) Last news about him was, he and his ex bride got back together, not married yet, and he is supporting his child ) . I met him for the first time at a family reunion when we were in the Philippines last year. I almost told him, ” hey doosh, how’s it goin’? ”

Be brave and strong, sisters.
That’s all. Rant over.
