The Crossing…Train Rides

The Crossing…Train Rides

If you think your friends would like this too, I'd love you to share it! Thanks!♥

Odd as it seems, I find train rides relaxing. One would engage himself in a very tough battle going inside it at first, especially when it’s crowded with people; nevertheless, when almost everyone would have gotten off,  I find the impression of trains mild and serene as if it’s giving me space — that “space” I need to breathe in, breathe out… stay calm and sane…away from the unsettled pace of the people that have bounded me initially. Kudos to Monumento Station for being the main get-off of the masses BTW! 😀

Within that intimate, personal space I get from the almost vacant train, I find a moment of stillness. I rarely get calm these days, you see. Reality/Life nowadays is giving me a hard time, but I’m trying… not to feel down nor frustrated. I know I’ve been always a happy bee! An optimist! But there will always be a limit to everything, so I’m encouraging myself to drive the happy hormones out and just be.. well, happy!  :p

I will never blame academics for this though, coz maybe it’s just really part of the routine of being a typical college student — we need to get stressed so we won’t be at ease all the time. After all, the Actual Life (away from the books, more on reality bites) has more to offer than the amount of stress we get from cramming the readings, almost not hitting the sack every night, and getting the pens and brains ready to battle out the revolting examinations! 😉

The usual Berso Sa Metro quotes situated at the top sides of the train are one of the unique things I get from riding the train. They make me reflect the moment I read them, and they are really effective especially when I’m in the middle of anxiety. God knows when I need some words of motivation, words from The Almighty!  :]

On another note,  life , as they say, can be compared to train rides. There are a couple of stations where you can get on and off, go for shorter or longer paths depending on your choice and then decide when to stop and get off the train. You can even decide if you want to go back, or just move on and go to the next station. We, likewise, get to be on different stages in our lives wherein each stage serves a mixed platter of blessings and difficulties. It’s up to us now on how we’d take the platter! 😉

Questions: How do you get over life difficulties? Are you happy and contented with the way you are living now? || Do you ride trains? Do you feel the same when you get on a train (that feeling of calmness when it’s almost unoccupied by people)?

They also often have some content on their website, like images or small archives..

  34. I currently compute we now have approx 66.5 hours left until eventually the timer reaches 0. If it turns out in which each tick of your clock is 1 second. That's the reason 2 days and 18.5 hours from now.

  35. That's part of being a college student in PI. You are lucky coz unlike before there were not rains and people suffers from hours of ride not including the traffic arrgghh >.< It is great when it is not queuing ^ ^

I too am an aspiring blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful tips for inexperienced blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

  38. I love train rides when it is vacant and I get take all the space I want… but not when I'm being smooshes like sardines in a can. lol… 😉

  39. So true! Before I thought my life as a student sucks, but after I graduated I found out that it's more difficult that I wanted to go back to college and study again! HAHAHA!

    Questions: How do you get over life difficulties? Are you happy and contented with the way you are living now?

    I always ask guidance from God!, currently I'm happy because I recently got hired! but surely I'll be happier once I start giving my salary to my family.

    Do you ride trains? Do you feel the same when you get on a train (that feeling of calmness when it’s almost unoccupied by people)? Yes I do, and I like it whenever it's empty!! calm, quiet, peaceful!

  40. You should really think better about naming your page titles. You should consider putting keywords in them so Google will find and rank your post page higher. I am not trying to be an ass but I am just trying to help. For example, what do you think you can improve on S A N D R A G A N Z O . Again, just trying to help here 🙂 Regards, Jenni

  41. Interesting concept. I guess there have been train rides where I found it relaxing but in day-to-day commute train rides were very hectic for me because apparently the stop that I had to get off was one of those main get off stops.

    I am glad that you can relax in the vacant train. It is quite difficult to keep yourself always happy and I have tough times with that as well. Keep being happy 😀

    College life does come with a lot of stress. I guess there's lots of other activities though that can help you balance it ^_^

    Haha words from the Almighty! I have seen some quotes on train and other public transportation before and I agree…finding an inspiring quote on a random train ride feels like destiny XD.

    True…life is like a train ride and your can hop between stations. However sometimes it is difficult to go back to a stage once it has past.

    Getting over life difficulties…hmm I just keep persevering and believe that whatever happens, happens for good. This one philosophy has kept me going through all my tough times! I am pretty happy with my life now but there's always room for improvement 😉 I used to ride trains a lot a couple years before but now I don't since there aren't local trains where I live lol. Unfortunately there have been very few instances where I was among the very few people on the train. I have to admit it though I do like it when it is empty XD.

  42. I really wanted to construct a brief comment in order to thank you for these awesome tips and hints you are giving out on this site. My extended internet look up has now been rewarded with sensible facts and strategies to share with my friends and classmates. I would express that most of us website visitors are really endowed to live in a fantastic website with very many lovely individuals with great guidelines.

  43. Nice post! 😀 This made me miss riding the MRT everyday during my internship. Hehehe.

    And I do feel the same… Riding trains and having all the space surely is relaxing. 😀

  44. Whenever I visit my aunt's house in Valenzuela, I really HAVE TO ride the LRT to travel fast. Just like you, I also love reading the Berso Sa Metro. I even took a picture one berso where it slaps me on my face. LOL. i mean sobrang patama kasi siya sis! 😀

  45. Perhaps you have considered adding videos to your blogs to have the readers more entertained? I am talking about I just read through the entire article of yours and it was quite good but since Im more of a visual learner,I found that to be more helpful well let me know how it turns out! I enjoy what you guys are always up too. Such creative work and reporting! Maintain the great works guys Ive added you guys to my blogroll. That is a terrific article thanks for sharing this insightful material.. I most certainly will call at your blog site regularly for most latest write-up.

  46. I pretty much wing it and just do what I can to overcome difficulties. Most of the time I just do it myself, because I pretty much hate the idea of asking for people's help. I just hate it when I can't do the same for them. If you know what I mean. ;o I can't say that I'm completely content. I want more things to happen, and I'm working my way to make sure that they do. I'm hoping (;

    I ride the train when I go somewhere far like Claireview. I could've ridden a bus but that would take too long. I'm not sure if I felt that before, I always get ditracted by the outside. @.@

  47. bihira lang ako sumakay ng train. di naman kasi ako nagcocommut from Cavite to school. hehe. pero pag umuuwi ako sa Cavite, sumasakay ako ng LRT. Yung Berso sa Metro tinitingnan ko din hahaha.
    sa tuwing uuwi ako sobrang sikip ng LRT. maluwag lang yan pag hindi rush hour. haha.

  48. Hi, Sandra! I agree that riding a train is relaxing when it's not jam-packed. Nakakaloka lang talaga sa Cubao station, hirap bumaba ant sumakay!

    Btw, love your photo. 🙂

  49. Can't relate on the train part because we don't have that here in our place. Yes, it is important to be contented of what you have and always be thankful for it. 😀

  50. 🙂 I've been in an almost empty train when I was in college and that was in LRT2. It was a magnificent feeling of not bumping your way into the machine and without even the worried feeling that your stuff might not be where it is before you got into it. Haha! 🙂

    And I am not even from the metro, I just wanted to take LRT2 to go to Gateway mall, just for the experience! hahaha! 🙂 and i thought it's prohibited to take photos inside, but you got it! hihi! nice one! ^____^

  51. OH MY!!! Thank you for posting a photo of the LRT!!! I miss this soooooooooooo much 🙁

    anyway, I don't like my life now. It's very different here in CA. I can't drive since I don't have my own car (and people in our house have their own cars that they drive when going to work, so there are no cars left here for me to drive). I can't commute coz I'm too scared to get lost. HAHAHA! I like it better in Manila. 🙁

    yes, I do ride trains to. I've experienced riding both the old and new LRTs and of course the MRT. I miss it so much, I'm about to cry now 🙁

  52. I'm an optimist as well. But I don't really like the trains we have here unlike you do. But I do love trams, the ones you see in Hong Kong. 🙂

    How do you get over life difficulties?
    I smile. Blog about it or rant my frustrations somewhere to relief myself from stress. And just keep on looking forward because that is how life should be lived.

    Are you happy and contented with the way you are living now?
    Honestly, no. I want to graduate na. And start working, have my own business. It is so annoying to be stuck in colege for years and still not being able to graduate. This is all thanks to my lazy ass.

    Do you ride trains? Do you feel the same when you get on a train (that feeling of calmness when it’s almost unoccupied by people)?
    Like I said earlier, no I don't feel that way. I hate riding the trains here in our country. But I do ride it once in a while. if I don't have a choice.

  53. Hi sis! I miss riding trains. It's been years since I last rode one, there is no train rides available here at our town. And yea I guess you're right, I usually complain about those loaded things we students have to accomplish but I guess it is and always has been a part of our routine. 🙂

  54. Sorry to hear that life's pretty hard on you, especially with all of your studies going on! Good luck! *hugs*

    Hmm, for me, usually, for school anyway, I take things one day at a time. I finish up one project/homework assignment, and then think about the next. I don't try to think of all of the things I have to do by a certain time, because that'd get me stressed out. That's how I did it junior/senior year of college. Haha.

    I'm content/happy with my life right now. 🙂

    As for trains, I love riding the train too, when it's not crowded. It's really relaxing, and time actually passes by pretty quickly on the train, I don't know why though. Hehe.

  55. I agree that once you're a college student, it really follows that you'll be living a very stressful life during school days. It is as if you enrolled to school not only to earn a degree, but to give yourself tons of workloads and stress. 🙂

    I get over difficulties by just looking on the brighter side of everything. 😉 And yes, I'm happy with my life, but not yet contented. I still have goals to pursue. 😉
