Filipiniana Time!
Listening to: Drive ~ Incubus

I had to wear a Filipiniana to school today, so I wore a Barong Tagalog! XD In truth, there are a lot of dresses that I could have worn, but seriously, why would I want to wear a dress? Plus, I think I was semi-dared to do so... so I did. XD I am now the official boylet of 4-Bayanihan. Lolz! I was being rented out to my batchmates as an escort. I was a big hit too! XD

But anyway, we still had our first two periods. CL and AP. Didn't do anything really. Someone told me I looked like my brother when I read my Balita for AP. O_o Blah blah blah, then Lunch! We changed, and had Bannana time downstairs! XP Then the games. I was part of the Pabitin game, and I was able to get two hair accessories even if I fell on my bum. I gave one to Cai, coz she seemed like she wanted it. (Not coz of your hair dearie. n_n) After that, I was bored. I was laughing at Sir Trogo because he was such a dork (hahahahahahaha~!) and he couldn't hit the pot. XP After that I started to get really bored. I was semi listening to Cai and Hosh talking about the GZ soap opera. The other half of me was thinking of, of all things, love and boys and stuff. O_o It left me feeling all funky. ~_~

I'm still getting ready for the Cosplay on the 18th! I already have shorts, I just need to adjust them. Now I need the boa for the trimmings, and the coat itself. Plus the accssories. But I can buy those. I'm just looking for someone who can sew me an overcoat. And maybe add the boa trimmings for me. I seriously hope I can pull through with this. >3<

It's 3am...
Listening to: Sulat ~ Moonstar88

Isn't it weird how even though that happened to me in the past, I'm like this? Then again, that may be the reason why I'm like this.

Lots happened this past week. I'm just having a hard time remembering them all. Wednesday we had our outreach in Tayuman. We were supposed to do the laundry at the Children's Center this time, but some foreigners where there, so we went to the Home for the elderly instead. I wanted to wash clothes, but that's not what happened. Honestly, I was overwhelmed. It was so sad to see all those elderly women there. One kept on singing, over and over. Another, whom Racine, Camilla and I talked to, could barely speak. It was so sad.. I almost started to cry when she told me her name, but I couldn't understand it because her voice was no more than a whisper. She kept scratching her hands. I told her to stop, because they'd hurt later, but she didn't listen to me. She already had scabs and sores. The bus reeked of Rubbing alcohol on the way home.

We had our barkada pics this past week. Maybe I'll post them. That depends though, I have to look good in them.

To the Turf!
Listening to: Anything but Ordinary ~ Avril Lavigne

YES!! Exams. Are. Over. :D :D :D

Friday, we had our last three Exams of the first quarter; English, Scouting and Computer. Computer and Scouting Exams = Blah. XD But whatever. We had half day, so my friends and I planned to go out to our 'turf' aka Eastwood. We bummed around at school first, because Yuki (www.livejournal.com/~sayama_yuki) had to do some VAC stuff. So we bummed around the MMA 'till 12pm or so. We tried to do Gela's (www.livejournal.com/~gelabo) write-up for the Profile aka Yearbook (Which reminds me, I need to make mine too... Help! XD) and I ended up putting a lot of... adjectives that described her. XD

We left for Gela's house at around 12:15, where we bummed around until 4 or 5 pm. I met Mop! :D We read her ate's Cosmo mag, (*cough cough*) then ate lunch. Yuki, Gela and Hoshi (www.livejournal.com/~hitaka) bummed at the PC while I finished reading a certain article in the Cosmo mag (*cough cough*). After that, we Ganguro Girl-ed! I got addicted to the Black Jack game... and the Kiss option. XD We finished 'it' in 68 days!!! Be proud of us!! XDDDDDDDD But I can't believe it was interactive even in the.. end part. XDDD We changed and got ready to leave. Yuki changed her shirt 3 times. O_o

We finally went to Eastwood after that. We sorta got lost on the way. XD When we got there, we decided to watch 'The Village'. We ate dinner at Fiazoli's (Sp?) and were horribly autistic there. XD Yuki and I went to the CR while Gela and Hoshi order the food, and were stuck in the CR for maybe 15 mins because two girls were in the stalls talking to each other. There were already two other girls waiting for them to finish. It was so embarrasing because it was so rude. XP One of the girls waiting before us acted out being a S.W.A.T and breaking down the stall door. XD We went back afterwards and became really autistic about the food. We wouldn't eat one part because it had mustard on it, and we were fighting over the breadsticks.. Haha! XD It was sooooooooo weird.

Afterwards, we watched 'The Village'. Of course, we saw the movie previews first. Although I'm looking forward to watching 'Alien VS Predator', I couldn't help but complain over how humans are always the victim of some superior alien race.. and how we're always losing one way or the other. And I quote: "Whoever wins... we lose." I mean, come on! XD But about 'The Village'... It was not what I expected. Leave it to Shyalaman to leave you thinking. After the movie, we bummed around at Power Station, where Yuki and I played Beat Mania and I tried out Guitar Freaks. Walked around afterwards, and ended up in McCafe. We argued about the pronounciation on the way there. :P After a while, we left for home. I offered to drive, because the driver was missing, but Gela said no. n_n;; On the way home, we thought of what we would do if we were invisible for a day. "Running across Edsa naked" still leaves me thinking tho. XDDDDD

That was Friday. Today I got my braces tightened. Ouch. >< Looked for Fishnet Stockings in Greehills for my cosplay, but couldn't find any! ;O; Got all fired up about cosplay after I read the latest issue of Culture Crash. (3 pages dedicated to them! Uh! XD) Ouch. My teeth hurt. T_T

Listening to: Break Me ~ Jewel

I've been so swamped with school.. It's crazy.

I'm taking the UPCAT this Saturday.. I'm scared, in a not so caring way. T_T (BTW, the UPCAT is a college entrance exam. Prolly the hardest, not only because of the test, but also because of the sheer competition) Then the week after the UPCAT is exam week! Haay. If I didn't study before, I don't know how to compare how I dont' study now. It's not that I really don't care, it's just like.. I don't have any motivation. No dream. No goal. I dunno. It's like I'm letting myself get blown about by the wind? Where ever the wind may blow.

I wish I knew what I wanted from life.
