higschool: a social jungle

highschool, for me, is just a place where you get to pick your own set of forever-friends. perhaps there are only two things i liked about highschool

i. my friends
ii. the pride that goes along with graduating from an all-girls sectarian school, like everybody thinks you're rich and sosyal and all those junk that would not really pay off in college

besides that, it's full of crap.

you'll meet real-life tupperwares, walking machine-guns and many many legged serpents.

oh, of course highschool isn't all bad for me, i learned a lot of things too and the most important of them is this:

WEAR YOUR SOCKS LOW. there's no logic to back this up. first year, first week of classes... i volunteered to answer a math problem on the board and before ushering me back to my seat, my teacher reprimanded me in front of the class that my socks were too high. ;_; i was shattered that day, i felt like the most jologs person in class because all of them have ankle socks. what a good way to blow off an 11 yr old's idea of self-image.




influence and good-looks are the only principals needed to get out unscathed in a social jungle called highschool. a little bit of brains would do, but it should never outdo your looks in any way.

there's a different exit for those who use their brains too much.

i love highschool.

finally, a room that feels like a room

a place where i can lock myself in, a place with internet connection, privacy, and a big bed. :D

yes! :D i've finally redesigned my room in preparation for next school year. lol. i am THAT excited to turn my room into an art den, but i don't have enough freedom yet because i still share my room with my sister during nighttime because our parents use her room since their room is not conducive for resting because it's facing the street. whatever.

anyhow. with the help of my uncle, we've transferred the study table inside my room. i've been begging my mom to relocate that long table but we didn't have enough manpower then. and now that it's here, i'm happy! :D bwahahaha at least i can stop pestering my parents. weeeeee XD

and because my mom is so concerned that we'd ruin the floor when we drag the chair in and out of the desk, she wants us to buy rolling chairs, yknow those office chairs with wheels. i wonder how much that's gonna cost. anyway... fine. XD

i'm preparing my friends gifts right now, mom says she'll be giving me half of my christmas bonus on saturday so i'm counting on that. regarding our highschool reunion though, i'm not sure if i can come...depends on the availability of a free ride and of course my friends' who's coming.

happy new year! :D

wicked



CLICK TO ZOOM! (nazoo-zoom ba? -_-) please, celebrate with me! bwahahaha

i've finished the advanced level of MINESWEEPER (16x30 tile grid; 99 mines)! oo, that's what i've been knocking my brains for since christmas break started (besides dish-washing). lol ok... to save you from a mouse click, here's what's written on my "congratulatory" mini pop-up window:

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE WON THE GAME!
you have the fastest time for this difficulty level

Time: 465 seconds (7.75mins)
Best Time: 465 seconds
Games Played: 121
Games Won: 1
Percentage: 0%
Date: 12/30/08

XD i'm not sure if i'm fast enough, but i'll work hard on it. i want to be faster next time! haha, as if it's gonna help me rule the world. ;____;

if you notice though, i've played 121 times and won only once. err, that should sound inspiring........ne?. ^__^;; it doesn't matter how many times you've lost, in the end what's gonna count is the number of times you triumphed over something. a single victory is enough to flood a thousand failures.

little by little i'm going to increase the number of tiles (max: 24x30; 668 mines) until...well, until i become a master minesweeper! XD *insert hysterical geeky snort here*





thank you for bearing with this entry.
cheers? ^^;


PS: advanced happy new year!!

a son who doesn't know basic sports etiquette and a father who just watches him boast his ugly upbringing; whoever voted for these scums?

i was taken to THIS PAGE via a link at my friend's multiply. it tells of how mayor nasser pangandaman jr. along with his bodyguards beat up a defenseless 56-year-old man and his 14-year-old son at a golf club in antipolo. the entry was written by the daughter of the victim who witnessed the whole event.

this is not the first time i heard of news regarding politicians beating up defenseless people over a very small matter (which is usually caused by the overly egoistic politician), but this is the first time it struck me really bad. maybe because i didn't hear it from the news first, but from a more credible source -- a family member of the victim. as i was reading her blog entry, my heart was sinking deeper and deeper at the violent turnout of events.

i never liked politics. i never wanted to involve myself in it, even in the smallest ways like debates with a political theme and such. no, you can never count on me to be updated with who's leading on the senatorial elections. i never cared because if i did, i would be always be up against them and that's an effort that will always be rendered futile. that's why i chose to be just silent and unknowing, in other words, safe.

God, I HATE THOSE DAMNED POLITICIANS!!!
hope they die early and rot in hell!

mahirap pala

i'm just taking up around 1/2 of our maid's duties and i'm already very tired. i couldn't imagine how else tired she gets when it's her turn to tend to the whole house. i do all the dish-washing, plus 50% cooking (i share the other half with my mom who is also my supervisor). some of the rest: pressing and folding of delivered laundry goes to my sister (because i don't like it). my dad does the gardening, watering of plants and harvesting of crops/plants to be cooked. my mom does the sweep and mop combo when we're asleep and orders me around in the kitchen.

i never realized that ate wilma does a hell lot in a day. :( now i appreciate her more than ever. :)

hehe

finally T__T;

after looooong hours of editing and editing and polishing every detail, i can finally say i'm done with this layout (at least for now).

i was pretty much contented with the previous layout of this page but i just realized that Gecko and Fly's comments link isn't working (or at least the codes put in --- maybe it's not for blogger). and so i tried installing a third party comment system -- haloscan -- but it won't work still. haloscan has an automatic install wizard for blogger (and they fkn don't have a manual install instruction page as a fail-safe, shouldn't this be a SOP?) but when i uploaded the file they won't let me publish it "as it is not well-parsed blah blah blah"

so i had to tear down the whooooole thing and start from scratch, specifically from a raw Minima layout. i did my best to preserve the original look, sans the horizontal navbar because everytime i do it on my own, they get misaligned in other browsers.

aaaand, because i'm a perfectionist when it comes to this kind of thing, i didn't leave the PC (well, i did go on eating plus dish-washing breaks) until i'm sure everything's set. misaligned stuff is my major pet peeve when it comes to making layouts.

sarcastic



WARNING: in the rare case that you're part of sixtreme, hate mails are welcome: crimsonfreak04@gmail.com


i was checking my mail like usual and landed on our batch multiply because there was some announcement regarding yet another reunion. not that i'm hyped up about it, i guess i'm not that close to my highschool batchmates after all (except for my barkada).

honestly though, i feel like i was my most hateful self during those times. it just means that i hated a lot of people back then. maybe it's because i'm too young, or maybe it's because i settled at the bottom part of the social ladder for the most part. it's a nasty complex suicidal highschool nerds tend to undergo, not that i'm a nerd in some way...or suicidal at the least.

ok let's leave that.

back to the picture, i know this is bit tooooo late. that picture was taken during our batch's first reunion (around may 2007 i guess). i wasn't there because i have summer classes... no.

okay, i guess i can't remember my reason.

anyhow, i don't know how they came up with that award but the first time i read it i felt an ugly hateful sting in my heart (or somewhere near. like i could actually let myself be that affected). i felt really bad and hurt that that's how they put the evident lack of attendance of our group. it's like going to a freakin highschool reunion is a barkada effort [roight! and if i narrow this down i would have to reiterate my ridiculous entry about stereotypes and how much they affect a growing teen's 'youth']. i could probably take being part of "Barkada ni Inez" but the award ('Mukhang Excited talaga kayo at Complete' AWARD) i could not swallow. it was the most sarcastic thing in the world (for me).

don't pacify me, i am nowhere near indulging in fits.

as much as that freakin certificate hurt me, i guess my friends' smiling faces in the background would calm me down a bit. who knows about the other awards? if they're as sarcastic then maybe i can laugh this thing off.

PS. i think the next reunion would fall on january 3. and i also think that it falls on the same date as our barkada's post-christmas party. perfect! then this must mean that we're going to get the same award for two consecutive 'big' reunions. only, no one would receive the damned certificate for us. unless majority in our group would suggest we just go there in lieu of a xmas party, dmn i would be extremely hesistant then.

:D

so it was high-time for tradition to take place again. :)

we went to my lola's house at veterans to celebrate christmas like usual, we were the first ones to arrive so we get to chill out a bit. then more and more people came, the room got jam-packed, it would seem a struggle to reach my bed-ridden lola with so many people trying to claim their space in the room. XD

it was fun looking at our family. we've grown so big over the years, most of my cousins are already happily married with kids... :) lol XD, yeah and i'm still struggling through my bachelor's degree. ;_;

there were just so many kids! :) it made me nostalgic. i was once like them, parading around my uncles to collect gifts, falling in line when a generous uncle suddenly feels like giving away a hundred pieces of mint condition 50 pesoses (??). lol it was really fun getting to hang out with my relatives. XP makes me feel so old.

i ate a lot too. biofit has to work double time this day. :-\

yo

my life pretty much sucks right now. it's christmas! why am i rotting inside the house with the internet! i think this is too sad, to actually spend everyday of my christmas break online, like my social life suddenly died on me right when i need it the most.

there's nothing quite special to look forward to this christmas aside from the usual family reunion. other than that, i guess i have next year to count for more surprises. i wanted to go out to the mall, but i don't really have business there aside from wanting to eat at yoshinoya (which isn't as valid either). >__>;

before my mom broke my fantasies, i was looking forward to vacationing at bicol where my lola is. i BADLY wanted to go there because i'm getting sick of urban living, i want to see my lola, my uncles, see the Mayon volcano, splurge at DJC, walk by the seashore, pick up shells... blah. T__T; but you see, mom told us we might not be going there after all. >__>; sucks.

hey. finally, i've found a sleeping pill that is being sold without prescription. it's called Sleepasil and costs around 12 pesos/capsule. :) hehe nothing, really. just in case you're a recovering insomniac like me, you might find this useful.

woa. our neighbor literally took care of our pang media-noche! awhile ago, after cooking lunch, they delivered us a bowl of menudo, a bowl of something nice (i don't know what it's called), and a plateful of fried chicken. amazing. XP and seconds after, they came back with a tray (yaaaah! like 15x10 inches big) of buko salad.

haaaay, i so love our neighbors! XD haha

email entry #1

let's see how this works. apparently i can't insert html codes here (have tried and failed)... hm, but i can put images according to blogger! :) keewl

i. maid-less day #1 -  i can live without a maid you know. i just want to tell you how i love our current maid right now (the one who went on vacation). she's so caring, she wouldn't leave us until after lunch to make sure that we've eaten and the dishes are washed. lol. actually, whenever we don't have a maid around, we don't cook a lot and eat on the dining table, hahaha, instead we eat on the table outside near the dirty kitchen so cleaning up would be a breeze. lol it's christmas and she wouldn't even accept gifts, i was planning on giving her a jacket but when i learned she already rejected a jacket my mom gave...i didn't buy anymore. nyahaha hope she stays with us forever. XP

ii. yey. i thought i'm going to be phone-less this christmas because my charger broke 2 nights ago. i was just charging my phone and when i came to get it, i pulled out the charger via the chord (my mistake) then it broke into half, spilling out the insides. T____________T;;

it was funny actually, it was not the first time i saw a charger's internal organs but hey, it's the first time i actually got to recognize the parts (credits to physics13)! i saw 2 transistors and a circuit board with labels (like R1, R2, R3 blah blah) and i immediately recognized those R's as the resistance values. LMAO. and voltage source is connected to the 2 metal thingies you plug in a socket. it's too geeky, i'm enjoying it. unfortunately, that's just about how far i went with the charger, i couldn't get myself to fix it because there's a loose wire and i don't know where to attach it (it might explode lol).

that's why i just bought a new one a while ago. happy.

iii. it's my first time to cook longanisa. i didn't know you just need water to cook it. nyaha

iv. currently listening to - code geass OST :) ooooh memories!

merry christmas! :)
Share:

heheheeeeey!!

it's almost christmas!! haha what a stupid remark.
i just wanted to blog, that's all. hehehehe

i. "congratulations! you did it again"
T___T; my 3rd week of relisting the item i was selling at ebay. anyway... it's an (a?) HP laptop bag. in case you're interested here's the link: click!

ii. i thought we're never gonna hold a christmas party for this year! yehey at red box! :) lol that actually brings me to a financial dilemma hehehe but don't worry, i've already devised a way to get some money before the year ends

iii. LOL my sister and i freakin asked our parents for a CHRISTMAS BONUS. and with that, we get a thousand bucks each. lolololol. tell me i'm evil but in the name of not-getting-totally-broke-this-xmas, i shall do that which is more convinient.

iv. more so, we're going to be maid-less from tomorrow till january 1st. ate wilma is going on a christmas break. know what that means? i have to wash the dishes till the end of the year. my sister and i made a compromise already, i do all the dishwashing and kitchen stuff and she does the laundry and yadda yadda. lol i'll drop off the senorita facade for now. XD my uncle is going to mock me for this. and we're just gonna laugh it off till the year ends. hahahaha

and because i'm really evil, i demanded a salary from my parents. bwahahaha. principle of equivalent trade? aaaayt!

v. full metal alchemist is one heck of a great series! oooh i'm such a late bloomer i never tried watching it before because i thought it would suck. i would always look at the character designs first before i decide to watch it...well, first step would be searching for the bishounen... the rest is history. but now...well, things change! i used to limit myself to romance anime series and those which are relatively easy to comprehend, i love the highschool setting -- no AU or seemingly complicated plots.

again, that was before... :) right now i enjoy almost all types of series because i get to learn a lot from them! like with Full Metal Alchemist. one of the greatest series i've watched, it appeals a lot to the complex nature of philosophy and reality. i was heavily struck by the different morals each episode portrays. :)

di pa ko tapos... i'll probably finish it before this week ends. hehe :D

vi. oo nga pala, i made a tray of mango float for my family. yeheeey, they liked it! i liked it too! haha XD

biofit

hey! i'm getting frustrated here!

5 days ago, i bought biofit slimming tea... 5 days later, i still feel nothing! as in noooothing adverse in my stomach! i'm not constipated or anything, i still do regular trips to the bathroom. pero noooo... i'm not feeling any stomachache at all! is this good or bad? is this a fraud? a sign of pagiging walang bisa? or baka naman immune na ko e first time ko palang uminom nun. pwede ba yun. i checked the teabag, sabi BIOFITEA. magkaiba ba yun sa BIOFIT TEA? hahaha e sa mercury ko naman yun binili.

e all the reviews i read about it says na pupupu ka tlga and you'll feel like turning the CR into your home. but why is it not working on meeeeee???

lol. maybe i'm immune na nga. after all, my eating habits (at least here at home) always include one or two yucky halamang gamots na i've learned to tolerate over time because of my organic-freak of a mother. i didn't know na ganun ka diverse ang backyard namin to think it's QC soil, it's not supposed to be capable of supporting especially weird plants. should i thank her for that? lol

or should i try a stronger laxative... like yung biguerlai? (bigger lie daw sabi ni yndi! haha panalo)

eh sa gusto ko pumayat eh. T_T;

almost positive client.

i. i've been talking (through text) to this person who wants to get hold of the item i'm selling at ebay. however, he proposed a swap thing, which i'm not really fond of since i need the cash more and i might not get the right value for the item i'm going to resell when i swap my item with his'. anyway, i've already made a polite decline to his (i presume it's a he with the way he texts) offer.

wooh. i need more lessons with marketing. i've always wanted to be a businesswoman someday, not a crap engineer or anything as hideous. hehehehe so with what just happened, i need to be more patient. and i need lots of it since i already limited my prospect clients within QC and Metro Manila to eliminate the meet-up hassles. hehehe

more more more...

ii. i'm halfway through How To Find Your One True Love by Bo Sanchez. lol i'm liking it becausue i get to realize a lot things... like i'm too picky and i don't date because i thought there's only one type of dating -- the romantic kind. i totally missed out on the 'friendly date' thing. haha i don't even know what a date means.

lol well it doesn't really change anything hahaha. :)

it was cool though, a self-help book dedicated to old singles made by a guy. heck, who would've thought.

iii. somehow, i think the slimming tea is working. lol, but i'm not getting the stomach aches though.

iv. last night we watched My Only U on big screeeeen! yeaaaah! big screen = projector in an air-con(ed) room. hehe terai bought a couple of tagalog dvds for my mom and we watched it altogether. it was so funny and sad at the same time, lol i cried. :)

i ♥ vhong navarro
and the toni-vhong loveteam too XD

v. oh by the way, after church we went grocery shopping at the SM Annex because we wanted to try out this Save More market in hopes of actually saving more money. yun pala, it's still part of SM Supermarket. kaya pala Save More kasi SM. whatever.

then we took our time to explore the annex, which is SM's newest shopping building. heck, like they could invest more on it. next time there's be an Annex 2, Annex 3 and so on. they just keep on expanding like heeeeell! but it's good naman haha.

while strolling we were approached by this super handsome Jewish guy named Maor, trying to sell his beauty products called Holy Land/Minus 417 (actually from afar pa lang napansin ko na sya, bonus na lng na inapproach nya kami hehehe). their products came from Israel pa daw and their main components came from the Dead Sea, which is 417 meters deep below sea surface... hence the title, O diba cool. hehe he's not gay though lol why am i suddenly talking about his sexuality. grabe, and gwapo eh. kaso maliit hehehehe, his eyes were so deep, his lashes so long....he's just soo... ewan ko, Jew. XP hehe

and theeeeeen, someone approached me too, she asked me "taga holy ka?" (because i was wearing our school jacket. and i said yes. she asked for my batch, i said 06...i asked for hers sabi nya 08.

napa-shet ako (inwardly) becuase i thought she was older that i am. then she starts asking if i know mimi delos reyes... e shempre ano bang alam ko sa lower batches diba? when she asks for my batchmates, so i mentioned some of my friends' names blah blah blah.

yun pala, 03 sya... hehe 08 sya grumaduate from college hehehe. ok that clears it. hehehe and she works from that Holy Land. haha

di kami bumili. hehe ang mahal kaya! XP gusto ko lang tingnan ni Mr. Jewish guy. lol

nature-trip: check

woa! natupad agad!
lol. remember i mentioned in my last entry that i wanted go nature tripping (plus swimming and blaah) this break? it just came true!

we went for a picnic at la mesa ecopark awhile ago to celebrate my auntie's birthday (which was two days ago). it was reaaallly fun! it's only my second time there and i've never done any in depth exploration so my sister and i took our chances to, well, exploooore! although i kinda hated it because she wants to 'experience' basically everything (stupid things involved) like walking on a muddy slope uphill when there's a paved staircase available, sitting on the dirtiest thing with the ugliest view, taking the scariest trails... well it's part of her nature you know, to piss me off. and i also hate it because it makes me look so maarte when in fact, i'm not! i mean, yeah... ok, i'm being maarte but her idea of adventure is just so stupid. it's not how i wanted to explore ecopark. but i still did, with her, and hell did i endure it with all the impracticalities she imposed. watdaheck.

i also realized something while with her. she's more adventurous than i am, and she fears lesser things than i do. and it also dawned on me that it's not because of her ignorance that i sometimes hate her, it's because of her innocence. i'm not trying to make things lighter you know. i love my sister, my ate, my terai... i'm just being a regular 'older' sister. and about the 'innocence' thing, i think i'm too 'impure' (for a lack of a better term) to understand how it's like being innocent. most of the times i'm ignorant.

makes me want to philosophize the two terms because it's confusing me now. T_T

later!

new banner :)


i made a new header. it's actually a recycled one i used in one of my previous blogs. :) it features a certain artwork of mine from way way back. just that... :) i'm supposed to do ' a series of unfortunate banners' entry instead of this to feature the 2 other banners i made just now that were turned down. hahaha i tend to create a lot of experimental banner first before i officially publish it. so there, that's probably the 'winning' banner for the meantime. XP

i'm really bored. i wish i had gone to our org's christmas party instead. either way, i'm going to end up broke so why not be temporarily poor and happy? darn, i wasn't able to think that much. i was too excited to go home. i didn't consider that after 3 hours of travel, the thrill will eventually die down. so much for this week.

i'm looking forward to swimming, biking and some nature-tripping over the break. i don't know how, i don't know where.

on some other note, something's telling me that i should go learn multiply-layout making. it's just css right? roight.

and my parents, they want me to enroll in this english proficiency workshop by TESDA. sounds cool, i want to, but i don't have time. sucks because IT'S FREE. and it's TESDA, i think it's a government subsidized vocational school so after training we get TESDA accreditations that's going to be additional credentials for us. tempting, man! i've always been dreaming of attending vocational lessons for free (or for a low cost).

my sister's gooooone. no, not poof gone but she's not here because she went back to los banos to get her nasal spray. >__>; it's a thousand+ worth of medicine so i didn't have qualms with her going back... i usually hate her for forgetting things then going back to get it, spending approximately 260 worth of travel money. but i forgive here anyway. hehe i love my terai.

JC Tiuseco of Survivor Philippines looks waaay hotter as a castaway, with the untrimmed hair, mustache and tanned skin. right now, he looks just hot. but i still like him. :)

this is lame. i've got pretty much a ton to do over the break, i even remember listing them out on my previous entry... but why am i still so bored? maybe it's the wheather. T_T; maybe it's because i have no money yet. or maybe it's because i'm too lazy to do anything. T__T;

while net surfing i'm also watching FMA, i'm quite enjoying it! bwahehe, does that make me not bored???

oh right.

i'm waiting for my stomach to grumble enough to send me to the toilet, but it just won't come. remember the slimming tea i bought yesterday? i tried it last night and it was supposed to bring me in a nasty stomach pain right now but where arth thou? well, it kinda came out awhile ago but there was no stomach pain or whatever and i just ate lunch by then....grrrr. something wrong?

mall! coffee!
drnt, i need both of you now.

i ditched the finals

because i didn't have enough money to stay over. i'll be bombarded with fees anyway, lol. -__-;

(warning: super long entry ahead)

i. december 16 - first exam in micro1. i crammed this one the night before by studying only for 3 hours and hey, POWERMEMORY WORKED LIKE CRAZY! shet talaga ang application nya sa exam na to! i'd be pissed as hell if i don't pass this freakin exam.

ii. december 17 - NASC6 food fest. i was against pursuing this event at first but eventually, i enjoyed it...because i get to eat a lot. i ate ginataang palaka for the first time. :) yey

SOSC1 exam. still the same, i crammed studying for this one (2 hours before the exam) but for the most part i got all the objective items intact. THEN THE ESSAY KILLED ME! i wasn't able to read the last handout because it's too boring; 4 pages long and was photocopied from the encyclopedia, and you know how it's utterly unappetizing to read encyclopedias ayt? roight. fck the essay, i tried logic (the usual last resort) but it's all useless without knowing about the encyc article. T^T;

anyway, i survived. :)
i was supposed to go home right after the exam but ate odeth texted me that we're gonna go caroling that night.

so i stayed, to somehow lift my grave issues on choir delinquency. by the end of the night i was dead tired. we walked a hell lot, but because this is my punishment i tried to endure it. during our house-to-house adventure, i forgot to change to my flat slippers...i was walking on my tall slips and it was crazily painful. T_____T;

i plan on leaving for QC right after the caroling when ate gerly texted me that we're going to have a rummage sale the morning after (like 3am)... and because it's probably going to be my last chance to yet again lift myself from being so invisible during committee activities, i stayed. T___T;

iii. december 18 - rummage sale, 3am: it was SHOCKING. i didn't know it was like that. scary people, no... SUPER SCARY PEOPLE. somehow i'm thinking if they're mentally retarded or something... or maybe i'm too sheltered to consider that that kind life actually existed. in any case, i enjoyed it eventually because i was with people whom i consider safe. i dunno but i have a certain fear that one of those co-rummage-tinderas might stab anyone of us with a knife. lol stupidstupid thought. i've been too prejudiced these days.

after rummage, i was set on going home then i recalled that there's still an applicant who needs to report to me. grabe. the constant delays are killing me.

i wanna go home fckdmt! T__T;

anyway, this is gonna be the last thing that's going to keep me from staying longer at los banos.

10:30 was the scheduled time, i came there with my overloaded backpack full with enthusiasm that after this reporting i can finally go home! jomuel came with me too.

okay naman. i wasn't kupal or anything. i just enjoyed it because i don't want to spoil anyone's day with my walangkwentangpagpapareport. anyhow, i asked the applicant to give jomuel and i forum usernames (for no heck of a reason).

you know what he gave me? sakura_fighter04
like it couldn't get any better than that. i hate sakura (from Naruto). and the fighter thing just came up because he thinks i can punch hard.

pissed.

and jomuel? baby_face25 (LOL)

so much from trying to fish compliments. well, i actually got one... he thought i was born january 1991! flattering. (note sarcasm)

but it didn't ruin my day though, that's just a very minor minor thing. my excitement to go home is still up on the hills!

but it still sucks because i had to go back to the apartment because i keep on forgetting things. first i forgot my phone and charger. i came back to get it.
then eventually, i feel my back starting to rip and my backpack slowing giving up. so i came back home again to change bags. i changed my backpack to a stroller bag and my shoulder bag to a big body bag. it's still super heavy, but at least i wouldn't be bothered by the possibility that my bags would break. T__T;; then when i'm already on the bus, i realized that i forgot my charger in my previous bag! grr...

i just asked my sister to get it for me. hope she comes back with it. T___T;;

:D
hehe

oh by the way! i wish to accomplish a lot of things this holiday break like...

1. get thinner. i just bought a pack of slimming tea awhile ago haha
2. finish reading these books i took home:
-How to find your one true love by Bo Sanchez (anne, in case you're reading! i texted u about this! hehe pahiraaam! :D)
- Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught (i'm forever 2/3 in this book. grabe)
- The Fifth Mountain by Paulo Coelho
3. and because Bo Sanchez just became my number 1 favorite author of all time, i want to collect his books!
4. finish Full Metal Alchemist
5. watch Honey and Clover
6. do Eng2 outline
7. do NASC6 survey thingy + Faculty follies reaction paper blaaah
8. read my mossed up ebooks (twilight saga and screwtape letter on high priority)
9. play out of my league by stephen speaks on piano. the score is starting to rust already.

woa. so many things to doooo! :D ahahaha

mejo nilulumot na ko dito

we've been here since 1pm... it's already nearing 5. this is exactly how i wanted to spend a day in a coffee shop with free wifi, at least the amount of time i spent here clearly compensated the price i paid for the coffee... they even gave me the wrong change but since it's 10 pesos more than what i ought to receive, i didn't mind. lol

i'm just wasting my time here. -_-; i didn't even get to download the movies and series that i want because they're too large T__T; later i'm going to buy dvds.

i wanna watch full metal alchemist! T__T;

i'm also intrigued with this anime called The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya! bwahaha, after reading the synopsis i think i'm going to enjoy it...hehehehe weird people rock! XD
Share:

with kat :)

wala lang, nasa boston ako...ksama ko si kat. hehehe wifi! yey! i tried downloading series and movies pero i gave up... masyado kasing malaki yung mga file! 700+ MB! haynaku... bili na lang ako DVD! XP nyahaha

later...

so it's already our christmas break

the chancellor announced that there will be no classes starting today until the end of the holiday break. of course this doesn't apply to people who have scheduled exams for this week, like me.

i just got back from my microbiology exam and i'll be bumming for the the rest of the day if i don't get something to do... like hang out with kat, watch Full Metal Alchemist or go carolling with my orgmates later. i wish for all of them to happen this day...i'd trade anything just to keep me from turning eating into a hobby.

i also decided to try out BioFit slimming tea after hearing numerous good remarks from my own credible sources. i'll probably buy a box this weekend and go punish myself for the rest of the break. i need to shed off unwanted fats and get in shape, without actually exercizing... i'm just too lazy for that.

for some reason, i can't wait for next year. why? because i wanted to bombard my planner with what-nots already. i even made advanced notes already and relocated my friends' birthdays. want me to greet you? tell me your birthday! hehehe maybe i'm a little too obsessed with wanting to further divirginize my planner (because it's too expensive to be left blank). i'm no good when it comes to minimizing space, i'm a certified maximalist (you can check my devart account for proof).

the food fest will push through tomorrow, according to my classmate. SUCKS BIG TIME!

hey, i'll probably do some major downloading today...so maybe i'll spend it at Boston Cafe. hehehe

here's a list of series i wanna download (in case i forget)
- Heroes
- Gossip Girl
- Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
- blah blah blah SEARCH SEARCH SEARCH
- movies
- asian series.. :)

still at home

i decided not to go back to los banos tonight because i want to maximize my stay here. i might not attend our org finals and christmas party for practical reasons but then i'm still 50-50 on it. depends on whom i'm coming with... and besides, i haven't really been in the mood to act bitchy towards applicants...i'm on my 'easiest' mode this semester (because i'm leaving soon -but who knows-) and it's sad because only 2 have reported to me...hehehehe :)

anyway.

the satisfaction of expensive gift giving. weeeeh. >__>;

i'm done christmas shopping for my family! :) well, they're probably the only people whom i'm going to spend on this christmas. lol. XD

i bought a gift for my mom, my dad and myself. as for my sister... i'll buy it at Los Banos because that's what she wants. hehe, she already gave me my christmas gift in advance! :) a Little Miss SHS shirt! yeeey. what the heck, i'm proud of my school.

♠ ♠ ♠

4 things i've come to appreciate this day

i. note taking during the sermon at church - it prevents me from sleeping while the pastor is talking

ii. the 'thrill' of overtaking slow people in the mall - since i'm more of a weekend shopper, i realized it takes some skill to endure (and appreciate too) an overcrowded mall... i actually find it amusing dodging people on the counter flow and overtaking walkers to reach my destination faster. haha, i know there's no need to rush but i don't go malling during weekends without a list of things to buy, and walking slow bores me especially when all there is to see is a mob of heads moving at snail's pace.

iii. rerwiting my notes/studying in the mall - i don't know why but just recently i find it more comfortable to study at the mall. as soon as i get a good seat (alone), be it in the food court, in a restaurant or in a coffee shop, my notebook will soon make its way on the table. every friday when i go home from los banos, i always drop by at SM megamall to eat dinner and there do my notes-transferring thing. between studying at home or in the mall, i take the later. hahaha, ewan ko rin eh

iv. the satisfaction of expensive gift giving - yeah right, it's the thought that counts... hehehe i don't really know why (i need more time to observe my gift giving habits) but i don't budget my money when it comes to giving presents or giving treats (as opposed to how i turn rather stingy budgeting my weekly food allowance). i always tend to pick costly items on the shelf. i don't really mind...as long as i have money. hahaha, i'm not rich... i just like being generous with others... and more generous with myself. lol

which brings me to this...
the 2nd most expensive gift i bought for myself


A MOLESKINE PLANNER!
which i immediately devirginized (for a lack of a better term) a few minutes after i bought it.




yey! that's one item i've been eyeing on since i first saw it at fully booked. hehehe. i know i know, there's no sense of practicality on buying a moleskine product... for the very obvious reason that it's too expensive. even if i say, "it's ok since i'm gonna use it for a year" or something stupid like "it's the legendary notebook used by picasso, van gogh, hemingway and chatwin!"... it wouldn't count as a valid excuse. hehe

it's a luxury item. :] and as i mentioned, the 2nd most expensive thing i bought for myself. the first was an mp3 player (well, it's dead and replaced now) which was hard-earned because it took me 8 months of manual laundrying (literally) to get it. lol

and because i just spent my savings last week plus half of my allowance this week... i'm on a delata diet once again! XD

eng'g meet 09 pre-pageant night

probably the highlight of this week (for me). :) i didn't know we were supposed to wear black (i was wearing white).

anyway... i came to ee audi looking like crap, like i have any reason to look otherwise. then there we were, the most populous org in all of CEAT, over-crowding our designated place, cheering like hell, laughing like crazy. it was a very fun event, lots of eye-candies and swoon worthy male candidates. lol XP

AND FCK, I DIDN'T EXPECT HIM TO BE ON THAT STAGE. i always thought he's just all looks and no guts but he totally blew me off. not gonna tell who. but really, i've mentioned him before as a very conceited, self-conscious, always-aware-of-girls-looking-at-him kind of guy. and where else could he best prove that? ON STAGE DAMMIT, how smart. >__<; of course his presence was breathtaking, but part of me didn't want him to be there. more exposure = more fangirls for him. and more fangirls = more, uhh, competitors? lol i'm not really into competing for heartthrobs. you know me as someone who hates sharing her fandoms with other people unless i'm the one who promoted it. lol, and because it's happening again, time to leave. bwahahaha :) ---- aymbrowk.
i realized i have no enough money to buy my parents plus my sister a gift. my mom requested a perfume, my sister wants a UP shirt but i want something more special for her (like a phone! i'm a failure when it comes to saving ;_;), and i've got nothing in mind for my dad yet... and i want to buy a moleskine planner for myself.

i need around 2500 for that. hehehe
sucks not to have money for christmas. T__T;

but heeeey! i think i've got a brilliant plan.

I PROMISE... BEFORE
I GO OFF FOR CHRISTMAS VACATION, I'M GONNA BUY THEM PRESENTS! :)

weh!

done moving in! yehey

because i like my LJ layout, i made this page look like it, just with a different color. hoy wag ka! it took me several hours to edit this layout. naloka ako. T___T;; the task that took most of my time was integrating Ramani's selective expandable entries hack to a Gecko and Fly layout. ang hirap kaya! puro error. pero dahil adik ako, nagawa ko syang paganahin. ang sakit sakit na nga ng ulo ko e.

and the result... something like an LJ cut.

tenen!


OO! eto lang yung result nung pinaghirapan ko. actually, i've used this hack before pero the base layout was a blogger default kaya madali lang ilagay...pero ngayon kasi, i used a third-party layout kaya iba yung tawag sa mga bagay bagay. basta ganun, e bakit ba, nahirapan ako eh. T__T; labo

i updated my links. i erased all the dead links. yehey.

i'm pretty proud of myself for making this work on all browsers... well i've tried viewing using the IE-firefox-opera trio hahaha, ok naman sya.

hmm...ang di ko na lang nagagawa ay palitan ang comment system. i'm more comfortable with haloscan...but i forgot my password...so hmm...bayaan ko na lang yun. T__T;

hahaha

hmmm...i think i would have to sacrifice the org finals and christmas party para lang makauwi ng maaga. wala na kong pera e. T___T; hahaha

Back to Blogger! :D

I'm finally back to blogger! :D hehe i realized that Blogger is still the best blog for me because I can customize everything...and as long as i don't screw with the layout, i'm pretty much satisified. :)

from now on, i'll be posting here... resurrecting my old blogger blogging habits... in fact, i set up the same look with my LJ blog, and i also took the name. hehehe

so there,

Welcome to LIVEJUNK.BLOGSPOT.COM
