Listening to: Mest ~ I Melt With You

Oh my. It's been a while. :P Sorry for the hiatus. And the vagueness. XD

Anyway, last week, I hit the jackpot! <3 It was really my day. I actually don't remember what day it was , but it was the Araw ng Wika, and there was a small program held in the lobby of the AB Building. Ah, it was Thursday. XD Before our Asian class, Voltaire (Voltaire! XD) came in and asked if he could borrow us for the opening of the program. XD Which we watched. The Chorale sang, then there was a small fan decorating contest, then there was FREE PANSIT! :D :D :D Yeh. I got to see him alot. <3 Happy day for me. XD AY! Then there was a time before that when I went with Rj to the Student Council office to talk with Kuya Ernie, then he passed by us in the hallway. Though Rj said hi to him and I hadn't yet, he made kalabit me and said hi to meeeeh. <3 Yes, kinikilig ako. XD

Ok, on to less kilig stories. Using the PC has been a hassle lately. If I'm to use the PC before 5pm, I have to wear a mask. D: And here's why!

They literally tore down the wall going to the balcony, and started closing the balcony up for the bathroom that'll be there. We decided to make the study room the second guest room, since we always have guests here. XP So, I decided not to move in to the study room. Instead, I'm going to concentrate on decorating my room. :D Anyway, since they demolished the wall, the whole study room is covered in dust. And when they're working, the dust really circulates in the air, and I have to wear a mask. XP

If the study room used to be messy before, it's even worse now. D: And the heat is horrible because:

I don't need to explain that. XD And the PC area is really cramped. ~_~

Saturday was Gela's Mom's Birthday! :D The theme was Luau, so I went in Luau attire. XD Gela, Cai, Racine, Kari and I were assigned to give leis to the arriving guests. Thus, the Luau Girls were born! XD And so was BananaColada! Of couse, this was after we had our Banana Coladas. Which are basically like Pina Coladas, except they're made with bananas. XD I had two, Racine and Cai 1 each, while Kari and Gela shared 1. Kari had extra sips tho. XD After drinking (yeah, they were alcoholic XD), we fizzed out. Well, I did. XD I rested on the couch, then eventually fell asleep. :)) While I was sleeping, they made the Multiply account. (We made it for stalkers. XDDD LOL!) At 11, we went home. First was Kari, then Cai, then me then Racine. The ride home was uber quiet, since we were all bummed out. :P Twas uber fun tho. XD

Sunday, we went to UP Church. We ate at the Pancake House next to St. Peter's for brunch. Then Jeth went to Laguna. Then, Mom, Dad and I went to Shangri-la. I had bonding time with Mom about guys. :o Wala lang. While she was telling me about her experiences, we both realized that we were more alike than we thought. O_o

Today, we went to Ever, then we went to SM Fairview. I WENT TO NETOPIA IN EVER. XD But I wore baggy pants, slippers and a sleeved shirt. XD And he wasn't there either. *phew* XD We ate at French Baker for lunch, then I went with Mom to Ace Hardware to pick out the toilet and other bathroom stuff for the bathroom. :P I made the horrible mistake of wearing slippers. Now my feet hurt. XD

As for games, I went back to RO. Lol. 5x kasi. XD But I'm making sure it doesn't interfere with my studies. (Weh.) Haha! But from 72, I was able to get my huntress to 82. :o

Luckily, I know a lot of people who are willing to help me get to 99. XD In legit ways, of course. :P Haaaaaaay. I'm being bugged by a friend of mine who quit HOL to join Dire Wolves. =/ I doubt I'll leave HOL, but the fact that he's trying to get me to leave kinda leaves me torn. >_< Gah.

Anyway, I still have to cram my Lit paper about My Last Duchess by Robert Browning. XD Raaaaawr! Some things never change. :P

Listening to: Typecast ~ Another Minute Until Ten

Yeah, me and my misadventures. XD

The week was pretty boring until this weekend. Yesterday I went out with my girls to Eastwood where we just bummed. Tis fun to bum. And it's cheap too! XD Then it rained on us. XP We stayed at McCafe until our ride home came, where we took some really weird pics. Playing with cameras is fun. XDD

Before that though, I had my own misadventure in Ever. Sheeeet. Hahaha! I still laugh at myself when I think about it. XD Ghaaaaaaaaad. Will I ever be able to show my face in Netopia E-Comm again?! *laughs* Which reminds me, I saw Carl (Cai's brother) there. :o

Today I went to Greenhills for my dental appointment. After that, we separated and I walked about the Promenade building. I saw the E.G.G place and checked it out. :o Twas niiice. XD Expensive tho. 70 pesos for an hour! D: Anyway, I checked it out, and stopped next to this guy who was also checking the place out. I looked at him, and omg! It was Carlo! XD Lolness! He was with his friends, and they were going to stay there until 6 or so because they were going to a soiree. He ended walking around with me until 3, because I was going to watch Bewitched with my parents. We went to Timezone, and I watched him play Tekken 5. I left him at 3, and watched Bewitched with my parents. Twas a cute movie. :P Nicole Kidman seems so fresh in her role. I'm used to seeing her with very powerful characters, not one so naive and sweet and such. And Will Farrel is funny, like always. :P (I miss Saturday Night Live D: ) After the movie I ate at Gerry's Grill, where I saw Convi, or rather where Convi saw me. XD After eating, we went home. :)

Tomorrow we're to watch Skeleton Key. :D Dunno where though, it's either Rockwell or Shangrila. Oh well. XD

I wonder if I'll have another misadventure tomorrow? XD

Overly Emo
Listening to: Soapdish ~ Ewan ko

Being so fscking emo... Fsck. I hate it. >_<

First there's UST. The 'group' we once had is falling apart, and like Coco said, 'It's every man for himself.' Jayz doesn't stay with us much anymore, and Coco and Arjay took it harder than I did. Now there's a gap between Jayz and those two. And Jumbo has just stopped coming to school completely. Not only that, but for me, I think that there's something missing for me at UST. Things are ok, but when people ask me how it is, I usually say it's 'boring' or 'ok lang'. I still don't fit in. And the fact that I don't have an Org doesn't help either. I can only talk to a handful of people casually.. everyone else seems offstand-ish. It's like, 'Ok, I'm your friend, but not your friend-friend.' God, I miss being able to blog about all the crazy things my girls and I did at school. Now all of that has just disappeared.

Second, emotional conflicts. I'm fscking fickle. Some guild issues. I miss someone. Alot. Ironically I see him nearly every day online. I like a guy I know I can't have but I'm satisfied with just being able to see him and say hi to him. The last one kinda worries me more than it does depress me. XP

Third, I'm turning 17 but my parents still treat me like a kid. Yes, you've heard of this many times now. 17! Shouldn't they let lose? Trust me more! You weren't here during prelim week, but I didn't do anything stupid, did I? I studied while you were gone. I didn't go out while you were gone. Well, once, but I didn't stay out late! And it was with transpo and a chaperone!

Fourth, my parents treat me like I'm doing horribly at school. No. I'm actually doing pretty good. I research, I recite, I pwn English prelim exams! I may not be as good as Jeth but geez.. Just give me credit. I don't even bother to tell you about it anymore.

It's 9. Time to say bai bai.

Listening to: Soapdish ~ Ewan Ko

I went out with Coco and Rj today. We went to the bazaar at the Big Tent in Don Antonio, then we went to Coffee Beanery to study a bit, then we went back to the bazaar. I brought mom's new camera, and I was able to get some shots with it. Tis a nice camera, I must say. I wasn't in the best of moods tho. Damn mood swings. Luckily, I was able to buy something for my mom. Her birthday was last week, and I wasn't able to buy anything for her while they were in Hawaii. ~_~ As usual, I got her jewelry. I always seem to be able to hit the mark with her taste when I buy her jewelry. :P This time I got her chandelier capis shell earrings. :D I hope she likes them. I have to wrap them up first. XP

Yesterday I was bored out of my mind. Gela, Kari and Racine were as I was, so we started stalking people on Friendster. XD Racine showed us some really freaky and horribly composed testimonials from Alodia's account, while Gela showed us her crush in Ateneo. As bored as I was, I started looking for my crush's account with only his first name. Amazingly (or freakishly) enough, I was able to find it. O_o I have stalker capabilities! XD Craaaaaaaap. Hahaha! Gawd. This is what boredom can do to you. :P

Mind you, I didn't do what I did because I'm gaga over him. Puhlease. Spare me from the label of RFG (Rabid Fan Girl). I'll admit, I've got a crush on him but nothing more. I'm not out to steal him from his girlfriend. XD Ok, I do get giddy when I see him, and sometimes I look for him, but I don't think I'm ever going to do more than that. Crush lang. *shrugs*

The above paragraph is reassurance to myself that I am not a stalker. XD

Anyway, I have a song stuck in my head! Tis the song I'm listening to right now. :P You can connect it to who I just posted about, but when I listen to it I think of someone else. Ah longing-ness. =/

Ewan Ko

Di niya sinabi pero may nagsabi
Gusto na yata kasama ka parati
Pero ewan ko, ewan ko
Naubos na ang pera sa kakalakwatsa
Gusto na yata parati kang kasama
Pero ewan ko, ewan ko

Pre chorus:
Napapansin mo na yata
Nakakahiya naman
Gusto lang naman kitang titgan.


Napapalingon tuwing ika'y dumadaan
Napapangiti di ko alam ang dahilan
Alam kong hindi pepwedeng maging tayo
Pero minsan nag-iiba ang ikot ng.. ang ikot ng mundo

Susmaryosep ang dila ay sumabit
Napahiya na di na makalapit
Pero ewan ko ewan ko


(pre chorus)

Napapalingon tuwing ika'y dumadaan
Napapangiti di ko alam ang dahilan

Napapalingon tuwing ika'y dumadaan
Napapangiti di ko alam ang dahilan

Alam kong hindi pepwedeng maging tayo
Pero minsan nag-iiba ang ikot ng.. ang ikot ng mundo

Listening to: Slapshock ~ Miles Away

There are only so many things you can do online. I guess losing internet here at home for a week showed me that I can actually live without being online 24/7. =/

Anyway, there are a lot of things I need to blog about, which I didn't blog about yesterday. n_n;

I got a few things from my parents when they got back from Hawaii. I got a new pair of sneakers (They're so white compared to my old ones. XD), a stuffed toy frog handbag, a ton of shirts from Winette (some were quite revealing O_o), some stuff for my new room, and a pair of suede boots which I haven't seen yet. They accidentally left them in Hawaii. O_o

But there's one thing my parents bought that I still can't believe.

See the cars? No, not the gold one, nor the magenta one. Not the white one at the back either. The black one. Yes, the black one.

My parents bought a Hummer. @_@ Zomgwtfbbq. It looks like a tank. XD

Buying the Hummer kinda sealed the deal with my parent's future plans: We're going to move to Hawaii after I graduate from College. It's still pretty far off. Three years. But the thought of moving again.. =/ Thinking about leaving all the things I've grown accustomed to makes me uneasy. Then again, a lot of things can happen in 3 years. Good things and bad things.

Gah, like I said, it's still a long way off. n_n; I still have time to wreck my havoc in the Philippines. :D

Listening to: Maaya Sakamoto w/ Steve Conte ~ The Garden of Everything

I'm not really in the best of moods, but I feel compelled to post an update on my life.

Today was the last day of my prelims. Although I studied, I dread the results. The internet at home is now fixed, and has been fixed since thursday. My parents are back from Hawaii.

I hate mood swings. They make me feel emotionally drained. -_-

The Garden of Everything
Rahxephon Movie Single Song

Here you are
Daylight's star
Made out of miracles

Of your own
You Alone
O so incredible

Each atom
Sing to me
"Set me free
From chains of the physical"

O free me, O free me

The mirror melts
I'm somewhere else
Inside eternity

Where you on
Outstretched wings
Sing within
The Garden of Everything

Where memories
Call to me
Backward dreams?
Or phantom reality?

Call to me, they call to me

And so here we are
Lovers of Lost Dimensions
Burning supernovas of all sound and sight
Every touch, a temptation
And for every sense, a sensation

Eyes of pure
Deep azure
Quite unbelievable

The sun's daughter
You've been made
Not to fade
Quite inconceivable

Each atom sings to me
"Set me free
From chains of the physical"

O free me O free me

A love like ours
A starry flower
Through seasons and centuries

As rivers reach the sea
You'll reach me
With songs of your symmetry

A small boat
There will float
To far off coasts
The Isle of Infinity

Come with me. O come with me

Here we'll see
Love's lost tree
Made out of miracles

Emotions, crystal leaves
To cover me
And you in eternity

Each atom sing to us
Through the blood
"Love is a miracle"

Sings softly, it sing softly

And so here we are
Lovers of Lost Dimensions
Burning supernovas of all sound and sight
Every touch, a temptation
And for every sense, a sensation

And so here we are
Twin stars of brilliant brightness
Lanterns lit by life for all the depths of night
And every day will return us
To arms of the ever eternal

And so here we are
So far from earthly orbits
Burning supernovas of all sound and sight
Where every day will return us
To arms of the ever eternal

Death to Destiny Cable!
Listening to: Cafe Sounds

No internet at home for 4 days and counting. Garrr. Totally sucky, I swear. And when we call Destiny's call center, NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE! ARRRRGH! When my parents get home, we're changing ISPs. >:P

Haay, it's been pretty boring for the past 4 days. -_-;; I don't have school until tuesday, and I'll I've been doing is bumming at home. Talk about total bum. XP I can't even play! D: Sadness.

Oh! I have a college crush. :P Well, I dunno if he's still my college crush anymore. The day after I admitted to myself that I had a crush on him, I found out he had a girlfriend. XD Aw man. =)) Sad, yet funny at the same time. Ah well. :P

Blah blah... Dunno what to write about anymore. O_o I haven't been doing anything productive. Ah wait, at least I started on my Geography paper. :P And on Tuesday I'll be studying for my pre-elims. But gaaaaaaaah. I want to get out of the house. -_-

I'll update again when I have something decent to write about.
