Summer Blues
Listening to: myself munching some chips

Well. It's been a while since I updated, now hasn't it? The old PC was fixed a while back, but I just found myself too lazy to really post anything on my blog.

It was colder than usual when I woke up this morning, and it was then that I realized that it was raining. At that moment I just wanted to loaf around in bed until the coolness of my room disappeared and I was forced to get out of bed. Of course, this didn't happen. Mum came by and I had to get out of my comfy bed. X3;

So far the day has been a lot more forgiving than the previous summer days. I'm actually surviving with my electric fan on number one, and the window is open. If it rains again, I hope it'll be a nice, cool rain. Not those really icky, humid ones. X3 Earlier I almost fell asleep here in the study room. There was a cool breeze coming in from the window, and it was perfect. And the pillow was a lot softer than I expected. XD

I haven't really been doing anything for the past few days. I just stay up late and wake up late, eat, and do a few chores. Then rinse and repeat. I haven't even gone out since summer started. XD But Mum has made plans to go out during Holy Week, and we might go to Puerto Galera. w00000t. Finally, somewhere summery. XD

Anyway, I'll be continuing this later; we're going out for dinner tonight. :3


Crap, I feel crappy. While I was walking around Ever, I suddenly felt weak. >_< Even now. You know the feeling when your heart beats really fast for no reason? That's what I have at the moment. Walking around is a chore; I feel like my knees will give out at any moment. =/ So now I'm just sitting down in front of the PC. I wonder what's causing this anyway. >_<

I was invited to Lilybell's debut tomorrow, and I'm going to be one of the 18 candles! And that means, I'll have to make this message thingie for her. X3 Tomorrow I'll figure out what to wear. Luckily for me, it's semi-formal. Haha! Wala na ngang school eh, pero cramming pa rin! Great Ria, just great. XD

Tomorrow is also my parent's wedding anniversary. X3; Which I forgot about, sadly. XP Ah crap, I forgot to get them something. Anyway. They said it was fine if I didn't go with them, since they think I'd just get board with them. (Yes, I know I spelled it wrong; I did it on purpose, thank you very much. XD) So tomorrow I'll be with my highschool batchmates. So far I know that Coco and Gela are going, though I don't know who else is going. I guess I'll just see for myself.

I think this post will suffice for now. :3 I hope I have more misadventures to post in the future. XD Ghad. I don't want my summer to be boring. X3;;

RIP - Workstation
Listening to:

While I was out yesterday watching V for Vendetta at Shangrila (which I found to be a kick arse movie), I came home to find out that a power surge had basically killed my (mum's) PC. So. As of now, I'm in Coco's house, leeching off of her internet connection. Well, my intentions are still a bit honorable, as I came here to work on a paper to be passed today. Which we finished at least.

Anyway. RIP Workstation.

If there's any good thing that came out of this tragedy, it would be the facts that:

1. I'll be able to really study for my Finals. (I'll have nothing better to do. XD)
2. I'm getting my own PC! XD Oh yeah bebeh.

After what seems like a looong time, I cried last night. Not because of the PC. I know I'm pretty attatched to it, but I didn't cry over that. I cried because I had a group paper on it that wasn't finished yet. And was due on the next day. And Jeth didn't want to transfer the hard drive to his PC because he was busy editing a video. Of all things, I was frustrated with him. Really, totally, frustrated. I mean.. My bond with Jeth isn't as tight as I'd like it to be. And a lot of times I feel like he doesn't care about what happens to me, or that he doesn't really try to help me when I'm in need. In this case, I knew that he could. He was the first person I turned to. But when he said he couldn't help me, I turned to other people for help. It was after my mum did her magic that he connected the hard drive to his PC and I was able to access the paper. I know it's not easy to do it, but it was possible.

*sigh* =/

As for now.. I have to go home and study for my finals. I've got Philo and Literature tomorrow, and I haven't studied at all for either. Good luck to me. XD

Hell Week
Listening to: ZoE OST ~ The Origin

Argh. I've been having mild headaches all day. Most probable cause is my lack of sleep the whole week. Monday I was up until 4 (with Coco) working on our Power Point Presentation for our AS201 subject. It was worth it anyway; we ended up getting the whole block excused from taking our Finals in that subject. After that I've been working on last minute papers and the like. ~_~ Today I was supposed to sleep early, but I stayed on.

Next week is Finals week. Then Summer na.

Just a bit more Ria.

I'm a Peacemaker.
Listening to: Hawthorne Heights ~ Language Lessons

So whisper softly, and don't forget, to tell me how you feel in five words or less.

Oh gosh. I <3 this song. X3 (Yeah, now you know where I got that spiffy stat of mine.) I borrowed one of Mick's CDs (Hawthorne Heights), and this is one CD that I've borrowed for nearly a week already. XD I should buy my own. I've really been into music lately. Earlier I was at the AB-Student Council's Variety Show "Silber", and Sugarfree as well as Join the Club was there. I don't know why, but I loved the feeling of the music resonating around me. This was while Sugarfree was playing, mind you. XD The sounds weren't too loud, and I could feel the beat of the music in my body. Ok, so that sounds weird (especially since I italicized it XD), but that's how it felt! I just loved every moment of it. And yes, I will be buying myself a Sugarfree CD one of these days. XD Another semi-random thought concerning music; why does being able to play the guitar add to a guy's hot-ness factor? XD LOL! And if he can sing... <3 Kilig. XD I've actually been thinking about this for quite a while now, but it was only until I watched Sugarfree earlier that I saw it up close and personal. I mean, the lead singer (Lol, I don't know his name XD) isn't drop dead gorgeous or anything, but when I watched him play the guitar and sing (I was a few rows from the stage) I felt incredibly light. Mix that with what I said about the music resonating and the beat as well. Wow. X3 Hotness. XDDD

Anyway. I'll be having a hectic weekend. Sir Tobias showed up for the last 15 minutes of class today, and gave us quite a lecture. He was no where near impressed with our presentation yesterday. Damn. After that, I was so frustrated because I had to skip my PE finals to be there, and it turned out to be all for nothing. =/ I nearly cried, but I let it out by telling the block that we had to salvage our grade somehow. Sir gave us until Tuesday to present a PowerPoint Presentation about the research paper we made on our Immersion. Coco and I will be doing our magic (Coco and I have the rep of making PPTs with weird storylines and funny GIFs of our groupmates) over the weekend. =/ I'm not sure if I'll watch Coco's concert this Friday. I still have to read the whole research paper, and it's 39 pages long. D:

Saturday I have my dental appointment. Hopefully I'll be getting my braces off. HOPEFULLY. I can't express how hopeful I am. And I want to eat in Mexicali again. XD Then later on in the evening, I have to go to my blockmate's debut at Edsa Shang. I'm not really her close friend or anything, but it'll be the.. *counts* 5th debut I'm being invited to, so why the hell not. Plus, free food. XD And an excuse to get all pretty and crap. Lol.

Anyway. Quiz time!

The Peacemaker
Test finished!

you chose BX - your Enneagram type is NINE.

"I am at peace"

Peacemakers are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

How to Get Along with Me

-If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure.
-I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this.
-Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.
-Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally.
-Ask me questions to help me get clear.
-Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery.
-Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.
-I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.
-Let me know you like what I've done or said.
-Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.

What I Like About Being a Nine

-being nonjudgmental and accepting
-caring for and being concerned about others
-being able to relax and have a good time
-knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around
-my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator
-my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
-being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

What's Hard About Being a Nine

-being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
-being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
-being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
-being confused about what I really want
-caring too much about what others will think of me
-not being listened to or taken seriously

Nines as Children Often

-feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
-tune out a lot, especially when others argue
-are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

Nines as Parents

-are supportive, kind, and warm
-are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

You are not completely happy with the result?!
You chose BX

Would you rather have chosen:

  • AX (SEVEN)
  • CX (TWO)
  • BY (FOUR)
  • BZ (FIVE)

  • Link: The Quick and Painless ENNEAGRAM Test written by felk on OkCupid Free Online Dating, home of the 32-Type Dating Test

    Pretty accurate. Even the part about the hugs! X3

    Listening to: Switchfoot ~ Meant to Live

    Well, I haven't been updating much, now have I? I haven't really been inspired to blog anything lately. I actually don't know why I'm blogging now; I'd rather be in bed, lying down among my comfy pillows, with the lights down low and the ceiling fan humming above me. <3 Yes, I do love sleeping.

    Anyway. Argh, I shouldn't have skipped dinner. *tummy grumbles* X3 Today was quite tiring. Our block had our presentation of data from our Immersion. I was recruited at last minute to present the power point presentation with the content of our research paper, and I was no where near prepared. Incidentally, my Finals for my PE were also scheduled today, but there was no way I'd be able to make it back from my PE in time for my reporting, so I had to skip PE. Now I have an incomplete grade in PE. >_< Crap. Our presentation didn't go too well either. We were short of time and we had to cut a lot of parts. I ended up not presenting our PPT. =/ It ended at 4, but I left at nearly 5 with Joseph. Took a bus home.

    TIRING. XD Crap. Haha.

    Gawd, I wish I made 89 for my prelim Literature grade. All those with 1.75 and above prelim grades in Lit are exempted from taking the Lit Finals! GAH! MY GRADE WAS 88! Craaaaaaap! XD So close! X3

    Oh gosh, I can't wait for summer. <3 I just want the last two/three weeks of classes to be over with already. X3

    Anyway. I think I'll go sleep off my hungrrr now. XD

    "Hot Fantasy"
    Listening to: E-fan

    Wow, Hell Week wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. I was able to finish all the things I needed to cram before 12. Except for on tuesday. X3 I slept at 3 in the morning on tuesday. XD Anyway, I've been generally happy for the past week. :D Which is good, considering how hellish it'd usually be with the normal circumstances.

    Anyway, today was a good deviation from the rest of the week. I didn't fall asleep in class,Theology wasn't boring, and we didn't have History. Theology wasn't boring because well... we talked about sex. The topic went to sex after we discussed marriage, and the topic soon shifted to virginity because of the countless 'hirits' of my blockmates. And I was surprised because we were all pretty open about it. I was expecting a bit more resistance from my other blockmates, but I was surprised when I didn't see any. By the time Theology was over, the whole block was sexed up. XD

    Moving on, we had our sharing of personal evaluations for Theo. Well, for our group at least. I learned quite a few things about a handful of my blockmates that I didn't know before. Lots of things about people aren't evident at all until you really ask about it. Makes me think what my other blockmates can really be like. Also makes me wonder what my blockmates don't know about me. o:

    On Wednesday I found out that I won as Assistant PRO for our Society. O_O Gasp. Ria "Hot Fantasy" (as my blockmates dubbed me XP) wins. w00t for me? XD Lol. I dunno. I guess I'm not surprised, yet surprised at the same time. X3 Weird, right? Today, PRO. Next, President. Then, World Domination. Sounds spiffy. XD

    Tomorrow's FRIDAY! I can't wait. <3
