  • He’s Wesley Gibson in the movie Wanted…WHICH KICKED ASS BY THE WAY!!! Couldn’t think of a proper title so there. WATCH IT! I swear it’s a really cool movie.
  • Update two, I am loving my PolSci1. Wala lang. I honestly do. Looks like the course objective is sinking in me: “Reimagining Philippine politics”. I’m already starting to “reimagine” my negative notions on the government. Naks naman diba. Haha.
  • Update three, I miss my family. I’m not desperately homesick, but I do miss them. The way my mom talks about my brother having a new job, my nephew learning new words and more dramatic conversations. Heck. Its so ironic for me and my mom to refresh our relationship as mother and daughter now that I’m far from home.

Anyway, that’s it for now. Sa lalong paglipas ng panahon at kawalan ng sariling PC eh nagiging lousy blogger na ako. Ciao for now. (And please watch Wanted. Haha :D)


So Far…

Right. So medyo mahirap magupdate pag walang sariling PC. For a really,really quick post, UPLB so far are the following:








That’s it. Napakawalang kwenta. Will try my best to blog hop ASAP.

I am off to Los Baños. Away from Region III, away from the city, from my family, my home, our dog, my bed, my books, my CDs, everything I got used to for 16 years. I was blessed to spend my 17th birthday last Thursday with my family…and no one else but them (except for Brent –a guy friend. We met up to trade CDs.)

Might not blog as often as I used to, but I hope I still get to hear from you guys. My main post would be through an open prayer 🙂 I take pride in my faith and this goes out to anyone who reads it and for the people I mentioned. Spiritually, I’ve had my dark days before high school ended. I had a total reinvention during the summer, and I know that this is the time to grow even deeper in my faith…

Father, I thank you for 17 years of nothing but blessings. Thank You for a wonderful home, friends, churchmates and all the people I met along the way (and to the people I’ll be meeting in the future). I still can’t comprehend Your amazing love and mercy and I thank You for giving me a chance to live this kind of life. I pray for strength, courage and discipline; for Your wisdom to guide me every day that I’m away from home. I pray for my family that You walk with them and that You take care of them. I pray for my friends, that You keep us connected despite this separation. I also ask that I get to grow more like You everyday regardless of a tight schedule and academic demands. I pray that through this blog, I get to testify that You are the reason for everything.

I know that You will answer all our prayers, in due time…Your time. Whatever You’ve planned, I ask that it be done. All sickness, struggles, or any hard situation, You let these happen for our growth so that we may know that when everything we have seems lost, we learn that You are more than enough. I declare victory in Your name and I thank You for sending out our Savior.

All this I pray in the mighty name of Jesus,

This is for yesterday, one of the suckiest days of this week next to my coming birthday on the 12th.

Reason #1
What is this heat?! Tormenting and ridiculous, most likely. My breathing was impaired last night and I was tempted to set the A/C to full blast, but my mother who was fixing this month’s budget gave me the look and decided to hold back before she starts scorning the living daylight out of me. Inulan na ba ni Mother Earth lahat nung summer kaya wala nang natira ngayong pasukan?

Reason #2
Some mobile phone demon possessed my cellphone last night. Everytime I would attempt to type an SMS, it would switch off and on again. I wanted to throw the stupid phone outside my room window pero naalala ko bigla na walang pambili pamalit dun at kung nasira yun, wala ring pampa-repair, so nagtiis na lang ako na masayang ang Unlimited text kaysa maghikahos ang bulsa.

Reason #3
Pati yata landline namin, sinapian din kagabi. We pay our phone bills on time, pero madalas talaga siya magloko. It would go dead at times, no dial tone and all that. My mom decided to cut our line within this month (since she also realized we don’t use the phone that much and most of the time, when we DO need it, ayun, SIRA) and avail of broadband (kung kailan naman college na ko, hindi ko matitikman ang comfort ng broadband connection sa bahay namin)

Reason #4
After a veeeery long cold shower, it was finally time for me to doze off. While I was still wide awake but very much on the verge of sleepiness, I heard something fall from my room ceiling (whatever it was, it brushed against the wall so I knew it fell). I tried to shrug it off but then I heard fluttering sounds, I suspected it was a cockroach. And it was. Damnation. I don’t care if they’re the only creatures on this planet who could survive a nuclear explosion, doesn’t change the fact that this is how I see roaches: PURE EVIL. I freaked out and I went out of my room, doors open, kasi nagpunta siya sa ilalim ng kama ko. I don’t want him crawling (its bad enough that they’re creepy crawlies, what I hate more is when they FLY) armed with one Chuck Taylor on my hand waiting for it to show up. And appeared, it did…after almost an hour. Buwisit talaga yun. I didn’t know what it was doing all that time under my bed but I knew it was there from the wings fluttering. With all my might, I whacked the roach from hell and watched it writhe in pain. Hanggang kamatayan nya sinira nya gabi ko dahil ang tanggal nyang namatay. You gotta understand that I really, really hate cockroaches.

I’ve been nothing but good this summer. Pffft.

Although, today’s good news that I don’t have anything to worry about regarding my scoliosis (less than 15 degrees daw ang estimated curvature ko, and since I’m almost at my maximum bone growth, I don’t have to worry about it becoming worse) made up for yesterday/last night’s mishaps.


(Oh, by the way, I turn 17 on June 12th. Pero wala na kong ililibre ng cheeseburger, dahil nagkaklase na silang lahat :[ )

Sawi Pa Rin Ba?

I know I shouldn’t resent the fact that everything works two ways.
I know that it’s hard, but no one said it was going to be easy.
I know I’m being immature for thinking this way.

Just when I have accepted that I won’t be studying in Ateneo De Manila, resentment kicks in again. Its either Interdisciplinary Studies wasn’t the course for me, or I was really meant to be in UP. I had a choice to have studied harder and snag that scholarship, but I didn’t; right now we’re on a tight budget and its not easy for my parents to sustain my studies especially without an educational plan. I am being immature because I should have let this go completely. Why, why, why.

I don’t need this right now. What I need to do is make the best of the current situation, right? Someone slap me and tell me to be content. Oh Lord.

*To get my mind off this, I decided to answer Rachelle’s tag.*

You share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. Then at the end you tag 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.

* each blogger must post these rules first.
* each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
* bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
* at the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
* don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
1.During my 3rd and 4th year in high school, I used to fall asleep in class…a lot. On specfic subjects pa nga. And I’m not proud of this! Haha, I’m suspecting a developing sleeping disorder.

2. I’m altophobic. I hate walking on stairs where you can see what’s below you.

3. There was one day where I didn’t sleep at all. As in, I was awake the entire 24 hours.

4. I could finish an entire gallon of Cookies and Cream ice cream. Haven’t tried it though, since it would be a selfish thing to do. But I know I can :))

5. I don’t know how to ride a bike. Or skate. Or even ride a scooter. For crying out loud, what is it with me and balance?

6. I’m not fond of chinito boys. Hahaha. But I don’t have anything against them 😀

7. I am seriously into words. I love reading the dictionary. (Geek much?)

8. If hidden cameras were installed in our house, you would probably see how crazy I can get when left alone at home. I would always pop in loud music and dance to it. And I sometimes talk to myself (in English pa nga. Heck, even my thoughts are sometimes in English. Hahaha)

Well, that’s it. I tag anyone.
