Listening to: Kelly Clarkson ~ Since You've Been Gone

Agh. I'm so f-ing tired right now. I can't believe I actually managed to stick in some time for RO. I don't know if I should post my enties now or later. I bet if I say that I'll do it later, I won't. Ah frick. There's too much for me not to post about, so here goes.


I want a Hale CD. Myx rocks when you're bored. :P

Crap. My head hurts. >_< It's like... I dunno. Ack. Basta. Today I was able to get my student driver's license. :O Soooo. I can drive now. Woah. Haha. Watch out for me on the road. XD I was also able to get started on having my UST uniforms sewn. At the textile shop in Standard, I go to thinking about cosplaying again. Wheee!

Last night Mum tried to get me to sleep early, but my body wouldn't let me. From 9 to 11 I kept on waking up and falling asleep. I don't remember what time I fell asleep though. She woke my up at 6:30. Aaargh. Lol. Insomnia still has its hold on me, although it isn't so bad now that I'm far from a decent PC with internet connection. It's all part of mum's plan to rid me of my pimples. ._. Tomorrow I'm going to uncle's clinic. I know my late night habits don't do anything to help bu... I can't help it. O_o

w00t for self-control.


Mum woke me up at 5:30 this morning to go jogging! D: Gaaaaaaaaaah! I felt like killing her. O_o All I did today was watch TV and cartoons with my cousins. I watched Shrek 2, KungFu Hustle and The Lion King 1/2, lol. At around 4 Jeth and I went to Tristan's house in Pili. 'Twas uber boring without the PS2 and the PC. O_o Luckily Jeth fixed the PC in no time. I played Warcraft 3 for a while, but strategy games really aren't my thing, and I died. Jeth installed Doom 3 on his PC, and it freaked us all out. XD Who would want to open a gateway to Hell on Mars anyway? O_o Tristan and Cholo don't like playing when I'm watching because they say I make it scarier by yelling when a demon pops up from no where. XD Hahaha! Dooooooooooom. I have therefore concluded that I am a very jumpy person. XP


Therese's birthday. It was ok, I suppose. The food was ok. But the cake was mocha so I didn't get to eat it. >_< Then Mom told me to bring some food to Dad. Then I got mad. I wasn't able to blog this last friday but...

My parents got into a huge fight after the Jester's Band Concert in Kowloon because of one of Dad's old girlfriends. Mom was screaming at Dad on the way home, and was hitting him. I stayed silent because there really was nothing I could say. Then Dad almost crashed into a concrete barrier on Commonwealth. I was scared. Really scared. But I was angry as well. Scared because we could have died. Angry because they had put us all in danger. When we got home, I went straight to my room. And I didn't go out because I was scared. After 5 minutes, I heard mom throwing drinking glasses. uck. I felt so bad at the precise moment. And I had no idea what to do.. Until now they aren't talking.

I know they aren't perfect but... I've never seen them fight like this before. And I sure as hell don't like it. I don't like it at all. I hate it with all my guts.


Thursday we went to Pili for the Kamaog Festival. We watched Uncle Vic race in the motorcross events. I voiced out my desire to learn how to ride a motorcycle, and Mom likes the idea. :D

After the race, we went to Tristan's house. Auntie Nickle and Uncle Aldo had come back from Manila with a new car and a new PS2. O_o The car was a Toyota Innova. The PS2 was the nice thin one. So all we did was play the PS2 and the PC. We played Dynasty Warriors 5, Gran Turismo 4 and Valkyrie Profile on hard mode. I also got to play Sui 4 and Guilty Gear XX Isuka. Fun fun.


Basically the same as Thursday. XD We tried to see how many kills we could rank up in Dynasty Warriors 5. I did 350+, Cholo 800+, and Tristan the mighty murderer 1000+. Haha. I also got some drawings done. But I didn't work on my essay for my contest piece.


Saturday was the same as Friday, which was the same as Thursday. Except... Our music teacher, Ms. Mabel Pindeda, passed away this morning. It was... so unexpected. I thought she'd live on for quite a while, even with her sickness. She seemed fine when we left Holy. She seemed just fine when she played in our Graduation Cemermonies. Seemed. I'm going to do everything that I can to go to the wake. Info can be found on Kari's LJ.

We went out to Naga this evening; Tristan, Cholo, Omar, Jeth and I went to Clubm8. I don't know how they managed to get Cholo in when he's only 13. O_o Shet. Well, at least he didn't drink anything. Cholo and I stayed sober the whole night and munchied on Sisig. Damn I'm so unhealthy. There was a band tho. They were pretty cool, they did requests the whole night, so I don't know if they had any original songs. Went home, and I stayed up until 4 because of the Iced Tea. O_o We played Gran Turismo and Sui 4 till we got tired.


Left Tristan's house for Manila at 9. We got home at 8:30 because of HORRIBLE TRAFFIC because of parades and crap going about San Pablo and stuff. ARGH. It made us so pissy, I swear. XD One thing that got me up was the fact that my parents were talking to each other again. It seemed that over the three days I was gone, they patched things up. Mom was using me as a sheild from Dad, and Dad was using me as a messenger. Bleh.

We bought Mcdo for dinner. The ceiling fan shortcircuited, and I noticed a HUGE stain on our ceiling. And then I said, "Oh shit, there's a leak! Something's flooded upstairs!" and lo and behold, the master's bathroom was flooded. There was water everywhere. I had to wipe water off the ceiling! A pipe exploded. Luckily it happened just recently, and we went home early. If we came home tomorrow instead of today, it would have been worse. O_o

Shower, caught up on my online life, played RO, blogged.

Now I'm tired like hell.

Damn. I want pie now. O_o

Insomnia's Fool
Listening to: PC Fan

-I know. Insomnia this bad is going to get me sick. =P But I don't know what to do about it. O_o

-Yeesh, this heat is bad enough, then I'm going to get a fever?! Ack. XD Let's hope I don't get a fever. I've never gotten one because of insomnia. In fact, I don't remember the last time I had a fever.

-XDD I wish you could have joined us in-game! HOL wasn't complete, but every member counts. n_n We found someone to proxy for your flowergirl duties tho. XD I'll be posting my own screenies later today. :D

Phew. Since I can't afford to stay up another minute, I will leave this post and post again... later. :P I have a lot to post about.

Listening to: PC Fan

So much for my insomnia going away. It's now 4:30 am and I'm not a bit sleepy. :P

I came home from Gela's house at around 8 last night. We watched Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, 50 First Dates, the 3rd Season of Sex and the City, and part of Priscilla Queen of the Desert [The one where Hugo Weaving is a drag queen! XD] Had our vanity shots, artys shots, and even some short video recordings on Gela's new phone. I slept with my BF [TURTLE <33] and Gela, Gretchen and I got to stargaze a bit. We also played a horror flash game. XDD Ack.

We enjoyed Beauty and the Beast. I cringed at how naive Ariel was. XD And we loved Adam Sandler for what he does for Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates. Imagine making a girl fall in love with you everyday? Woah. :P And she forgets it the day after? That's something. The end wasn't too idealistic. She was never cured of her condition, but they still made it work.

Anyway. I was able to send myself some of the numerous pictures that Gela has on her PC through my gmail account. Made me look back at the high school life I'll be leaving in less than a month. Pictures are... I dunno. What is it with pictures anyway? :P I have some of the most humiliating pics of myself, and when I look at them.. I laugh. Me with a curly wig on and Hulk hands? I laugh. My bum? I laugh. Trying to look seductive with strawberries? I laugh! I see pics of my friends. I feel good. Happy. Sad. I see pics of people who have been in my life. I wonder what could have happened if things didn't turn out the way they did. I see my classmates. Buhay days. Gabay days. Kagitingan days. Bayanihan days. Pictures of seduction. Pictures with post-it quotes. I have a whole box filled with unsorted pictures. It's the pictures what make my wallet fat!

It's amazing how you can still a moment of your life in a picture, isn't it?

Hm. I feel happy right now. Even if everything isn't ok for me. n_n

I just came off of RO and had another one of my misadventures. XD Which includes, tackling monsters way too strong, running for your life across a map to a portal on the other side, forming a party out of mismatched jobs and levels, and dying. A lot. XD I don't really care what people say about me playing this game. People who make a big deal out of things that shallow suck. :P Honestly, judging me because of something I like to do is so immature. Mom is always like that. And yet when she was my age, she was playing marbles. =P We all need our escapes.

The PC runs incredibly well since my brother formatted it. It's so... clean. Miraculously tho, when I opened my profile for the first time, there was an icon for Rise of Nations : Thrones and Patriots. The fact that he formatted it without me kinda irked me, but I'd be bugging him if he formatted it while I was here. Our helpers also managed to clean the study room. The resolution of the monitor is bigger though. Things are smaller. XD I still have to get used to it. Oooooooh, and speaking of the study room, I'm planning on moving in here. Into the study room. [w00t!] I don't know if it'll really push through though. Mom's planning on converting our balcony here into a bathroom. Half of the balcony, I mean. The other half will be added to the room. As of now, moving into here is still a dream. I might pull it off, one day.

Convi thinks I'm sick. And I'm chatting with Gab right now and he says I'm a safeist. I might be. I might be. Early morning conversations are interesting. Amazingly, it wasn't filled with complete random-ness that they usually are. It was quite a conversation indeed. And yes, my 'big brother' rocks. <3 That's YOU Mike~! XD

It's dawn. The sun is rising.

My oh my, the insomnia is back.

Ang Huling Hirit
Listening to: Friends talking upstairs

As I type this, I'm in Gela's house, currently in an on-going sleepover. :P Luckily, I'm not really that sleepy yet. n_n We're not complete tho. Camilla wasn't able to come since she had some Church things going on. Plus she has to be at UP tomorrow. Kari was able to come, but had to go home. So the ones left here now are Gela (doi), Racine, Gretchen and I.

Soo. Today I woke up near lunch time. I stayed up a bit too late last night. I hurridly packed my stuff (haha, crammer pa rin XD) and went off to meet teh girls at Royale Place. Ate at Pizza Hut with them and Maku. Then we were off to Holy to pick up Grad Ball pics. Dun ask for mine, I'm not posting them. :P

Things have been happening but... I haven't really been up to posting them. I'm really starting to love HOL more and more; we're even starting to grow since pROSE is coming out soon. Something is going to happen to me in RO this week. Hopefully. XD

Ack, I don't really have the time to continue this post.

Hopefully I can get out of the rut I find myself in when I'm at home.

Happy Mum's Day~
Listening to: Hale ~ Broken Sonnet

I am totally hating Destiny Cable right now. And I am hating this PC as well. It's slow and buggy and crap. >_< Dammit. ARGH. If I only knew how to fix this PC myself, I wouldn't have to rely on my useless brother to fix it. Because he never fixes it! And when it breakes down totally, he blames it all on me, when he doesn't lift a finger to maintain it. Duh! You're the computer wiz, not me. It took me a damn year to convince him to restore my files that were lost to the last format. FRICK. I am so PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW. It is 2am and my internet isn't working. There is a reason it's called off peak hours. That's because everyone's asleep and that means there's no one to clog up the network. MY ARSE. ARGH. DAMMIT.

Today. Was. Mother's Day. I gave mom the frame I bought 2 weeks ago. I wasn't able to find a picture for it though. We went to Shangrila, where we watched Kingdom of Heaven. It was nice, pretty gorey, as usual, dramatic, etc. Still nice. Orlando Bloom wasn't wussy. :P There's a new Tim Burton film out, but I wasn't able to catch the preview of it. It's got the same style as Nightmare Before Christmas though. I wanna watch~! There are a lot of nice movies out, and I know I won't be able to watch them all. >_< I don't want to fall behind in the movie department! T_T

Another thing that happened today that pisses me off. I was stalked. And this time it was for real. I was turning a corner, and I passed by this middle aged guy. He was probably in his 30's or so. Grey shirt. Grey pants. And I glanced at him because he was obviously looking at me. And when I did, he started winking at me. Repeatedly. And it wasn't the suave kind of wink. It was the forced, scary kind. So I went straight, and hid in Powerstation for a while. ._. When I went out, FRICK! He was there! I was really freaked out at this point. >_< Soooo. I bypassed him, taking the longer way, and took the escalator to the theaters and waited for my family. ERGH. I thought it was kind of funny, because it was so dumb. But now it freaks me out, and angers me as well. Next time I go out, I will experiment. I will ditch my glasses and wear baggy clothes. >:( And bring a sharp object just in case that doesn't work.

Ooh, I was really starting to hate LJ and it's layout concepts, but meh, it's not so bad. I'm used to having complete control over it though, like on Blogger. Of course, making your own layout on Blogger is harder than on LJ. *sigh* LJ icons are VERY cool though. The thought of expressing yourself on a 100x100 gif is neat. XD

w00t. My insomnia is back.

Pagsanjan Falls!

Listening to: Finch ~ Letters to You

Pagsanjan Falls

Let me recount what happened. n_n

Day 1

Woke up at 6. I had an EXTREMELY hard time doing this one, because some online friends of mine wouldn't let me sleep[I really should have ditched the two, but I couldn't. O_o They kept me up until 5 demmet! >_<], and two, because my bedside clock is.. glitchy. It's the wind up kind, so you have to wind it up every morning. And knowing me, I always forget, so sometimes it never rings because the spring never reaches the alarm time. Plus sometimes I just notice that's it's an hour late compared to the other clock in my room, so to find out what time it is really, I have to check the clock under my bed. Don't ask. XP So anyway~ My clock rang late. Oh and three: I really don't do mornings. XD

Luckily I had packed the night before so I didn't have to rush anything. We left at 6:30, and headed for the US Veteran's Affairs Clinic. Dad had an appointment with his shrink, and since it was really important, we had to get that over with first. And funkily enough, we weren't allowed inside. Only one person could go in with Dad. So we stayed outside. And I slept on a bench. Damn. Now that is really sad. XD At around 9 Dad FINALLY finished, and we were on our way. I text Kari for a while, and soon I fell asleep. My family is amazed at how well I sleep in a car. If only they knew. :O Ate KFC for lunch. Jeth tinkered with his PSP, and tried to find a WiFi spot in Starbucks. I saw UP LB on the way. It's so... spacious. Soon enough, we were there at the 'resort'. The room wasn't exactly what I'd call great, but whatever. There were two single beds, a tv, a mirror and a desk, and a bathroom. But lo and behold, there was no power. XD So we swam at the resort's pool. The pool was nice. Perfect for such a hot day. @_@ We swam. And swam. And swam. O_o We swam for nearly 5 hours, until the power came back. XD I made 5 pesos by diving to the bottom and finding old peso coins. :P Staying underwater is.. really cool. Now I want a camera that can take shots underwater. XD

Then we had dinner. Mom was followed by her minion cats. I got some progress done on my sage drawing. :3 Then we retired to our room. But we messed around first! XD I got to take all sorts of vanity shots with Jeth's camera, and I messed around with it with my Mum. X3 Took all these weird pics. I even have a pic of me modeling the PSP. O_o Then we got tired and squished 4 people onto 2 single sized beds. XD

Day 2

We woke up early again. Around 7, I think. Ate breakfast, and got onto the boat of doooom! XD

So we started our boat trip down the river towards Pagsanjan Falls. We went up lots of rapids. And it was quite freaky. Mostly because I brought my phone and my digi cam along with me. After a lot of balancing, close calls and photographs, we finally made it to Pagsanjan Falls. There was even a raft that would take you under the waterfall, and into a small cave behind it.

Dad wanted to go, and for some odd reason, I agreed to go with him. SO. Guess who went under a waterfall in a rickety raft?! XDD It hurt, but it was really an experience. The power of the water was so strong. O_o It pulled my capris down to my hips. @_@ We hung out there for a while, then came back. Then when we were off the raft, I realized that I was still wearing my rubber shoes. Great Ria. Greeeeeeeeat. n_n;; The trip down the river was a lot faster than going up. We saw a lot of tourists on their way there, and occasionally Jeth and I would wave from our boat. XD

After that, we packed up and left for home. And that was that.

Free Chicken?
Listening to: Jewel ~ Foolish Games

Had a good day with my friends today. :3 Our kidnapping plan was a sucess! Sorta. XD

At lunch, I met up with Gela at Pizza Hut, who was soon followed by Cai. We had lunch there, and talked about things.. Yeah. And we noticed that the waiter Richard was uber nice to us. XD Probably because we were pretty. LOL. XD Anyway, we went to Mochi Blends, and met up with Kari and her family. Iced Chocolate ROCKS. Then Racine arrived, then Kari left. From Mocha Blends, we had to take the tricycle home. After teh bumpy ride, I realized that MOM WASN'T HOME YET. @_@ Sooooooooo. We had to wait outside for my mom and dad to return from teh grocery. XD But it was fun, even if it was really hot and ants kept on biting me. We talked even more. After that.. all we did was mess around on the PC. :P Turned on the webcam:"FREE CHICKENS!" which was supposed to say "Free Asian Chixx!" but that's too vulgar and suggestive. XD Chat with people, like Mike, Joseph, and Maku. We were so hyper. XD I wonder if Mike was overwhelmed by my friends. >:D And poor Joseph. XDDD LOL. Anyway, all we did was Not Pron and Zest. Which are two online riddles. Mind boggling, I tell you. Luckily, we had Maku to help us on Not Pron.

Eventually they had to go home. After they left, I just forumed, played some YM Pool against DoppleokS and Mike (UBER SLOW YM Pool, mind you). I won against Dop, but lost against Mike. n_n; Then forumed, then played RO.

I looooooove...!


I love you all. *hugs* <3

PS: Apologies to Berbi for leaving you UBER CONFUSED about... that. XD You know what I'm talking about. :P
