Allergy Attack!
Listening to: Dashboard Confessionals ~ Screaming Infidelities

Ok so.. I kinda disappeared after Saturday. Here’s what happened, so I don’t have to explain to everyone. X3
I went to the hospital. I was supposed to go out with Ginno, but I got stuck at the hospital longer than expected, so that didn’t push through. The doctor gave me antibiotics for an infection I have, and me, being half stupid, didn’t ask about the name which sounded suspiciously like Amoxicillin, which I’m allergic to. The last time I took Amoxicillin, my feet got swollen. XP I got to Coco Cobana at around… 6 or so. I was the first officer to get there. It started pretty late because the sound system was crappy. Anyway, program, then ate. I took the antibiotic at around 8:30pm-9pm after eating. Went through the rest of the night without a hitch, although I had emotional pangs.

My hands start to itch.

My feet start to feel irritated.

I get home confirm my feet and hands are swollen. I have a hard time taking a shower and brushing my hair because my feet are so swollen. Walking is a hassle and my hands are killing me. Amazingly enough, I manage to chat with Ginno for a while before going to sleep. X3 Another stupid decision of mine; I decide to sleep without telling my parents the reaction I have. I figure that the same thing is going to happen, which is nothing serious. So I leave a note on the door instead. Stupid stupid stupid.
Mom knocks on my door to wake me up for breakfast. She reads the note and bursts in.

The clinic is closed so we decide to wait the day out. My parents decided to drown me in water. I end up sleeping throughout most of the day.
I cram my Asian paper. My feet are still swollen and itchy, but I go on cramming anyway.

I skip breakfast as we decide to go to the clinic instead of waiting for Tuesday after I complain that the rashes are getting worse. They start moving up from my hands onto my arms. We bring Coco along, since we don’t think it’ll take that long.

We get to the clinic, and they refer me to a pediatrician in Manila Doctor’s Hospital.

We’re still at the hospital, and the doctor hasn’t arrived yet. >_< Coco and I decide to go to school instead. We get to the clinic, and they decide to inject me with Antamine, an anti-allergy shot. Dad sends Coco to school via taxi, and I’m forced to stay at the clinic.

I start crying. X3; I’m frustrated with the fact that I’m sick, and that the doctors are all late, and that I’m getting worse. It doesn't help that the doctor keeps on saying that I might die because one of the more serious allergic reactions is the constriction of the airways. The doctor attending to me at the clinic starts to worry that I can’t breathe, but I tell her that I’m just frustrated that this antibiotic allergy thing happened again.

I get the shot. I eat a bit, then I’m knocked out by the drowsiness side effect. The redness in my arms, hands and feet subside, and dad takes me home.


I take the new antibiotic assigned to me, Cephalexyn.

I eat dinner, and Dad gives me a pill of Iterax.

I take the new antibiotic again. I take it every eight hours.

I sleep through the rest of the day.
I take my third pill of Cephalexyn.

Mom tells me to get out of bed to eat breakfast downstairs. I get to the stairs, but once at the top, I lose my breath. My parents decided to bring me to the clinic again after I eat. They take me back to my room and I eat there.

We leave the house.

We get to the clinic. Once I get there, Dr. De La Rosa attends to me. They give me an IV with Dextrose to help me flush out the Amoxicillin in my body.

I eat lunch, and afterwards we go to Manila Doctor’s Hospital. The doctor I’m referred to wants me to be admitted into the hospital. >_< I don’t want to, so I make try to will myself to get better. O_o

At the clinic, they remove the IV. The two doctors at the clinic aren’t talking with each other, as one suggests I go home instead, while the other insists that I be admitted. ~_~;; The hospitals are full with dengue patients, so fearing the chance of getting dengue, we insist on going home.

I start to feel a lot better.

Much against the other doctor’s will, we go home.

And now.. I’m here. :3 Doing a lot better than this morning. I’m glad to be ok. Graa. Getting sick is such a hassle. >_< AND IT SUCKS. Asflaksjdflkaj. I’m just glad nothing serious happened.

Are you In, or are you Out?
Listening to: Coheed and Cambria ~ A Favor House Atlantic

*points to above pics*

My pair of Chucks. :D

Oh oh oh.

Four Months. :) Belated Happy Monthsary, love. :)

Ok, now back to my post.

w00t, 9k+ hits! :D Thanks readers/stalkers.

*refers to post she wrote earlier*

Argh. I haven't been able to blog since... FOREVER. D: I'm actually supposed to be cramming for a paper, but oh well. Right now I'm writing in the dark; our classroom (building) lost power, yet for some strange reason our one aircon (theother is currently a hole in the wall) is still on. O_O


Last Saturday was the 'surprise' party my friends had planned for me. It was so much fun. <3 The dress they had gotten me was gorgeous, and it fit me perfectly. Although.. it was a bit tight around the chest. XD XD XD Nearly all my friends were there, my relatives whom I care for were there, even HOL (representative XD) was there. (Thanks Jeff. :3) Ginno was there. :) Everyone got to meet him, and things went smoothly. Thanks for making it my night, everyone. I love you guys. <3 <3 <3 I'll be posting pics when I get them. Mom talked to the photographer for me, and she's giving us a CD of the digital copies of our pics. :3 I watched the video that was taken at the time, and I just hope that they had as much fun as I did. :)

Theeeen.. Hell Week. =_=;; On Monday Marvi had me redo the bulletin board which I had assigned Iya to do. I was pretty annoyed because I had repeatedly told Iya to deal with it and it turned out half-baked. So he had me remake it. And he wanted it up by Tuesday. The last time I worked on the bulletin board, they took it down. >_< So stress. Then Caitlyn came up to me and handed me a pile of fliers, and told me to post them in all the classrooms and bulletin boards. The fact that I had a very, very long English paper due the next day didn't help at all. I ended up crying while waiting for Coco. *sigh* Fred and Coco comforted me, and helped me with the stuff the society had dumped on me. I ended up staying up all night working on the English paper.

Tuesday I went to school early to continue working on my paper. ~_~ Though I had stayed up all night, I hadn't finished it. I cut Philo class working on that paper. XP

Wednesday, I cried again. >_< Marvi text me, and I just broke down and started crying. Luckily our prof had left already. I was literally sobbing. I was so stressed. Then Marvi and Alwin came in to talk about the Society Night, and Marvi noticed me.

"Oh Ria, bat ka umiiyak?"

I replied.


The society has just been giving me trouble. I know it's partially my fault for letting it happen all the time. I don't complain, and I never say no. I'm a freakin' doormat. >_< Ew. Soo. I decided to resign as Assistant PRO. I'm giving my resignation letter on Monday. Ironically, right after our Society Night, which is on Saturday. Everyone wants me to quit already. For once, I think I should stop trying.

Thursday, we had PE. The first hour was dedicated to an Assistant Coach of UST who committed suicide. =/ Coco and I were late though, so we stayed in the field while the rest of the class was already at the chapel. We didn't play, but we had a passing exercise instead. I had to talk with Prof Adri after class. If I'm late one more time, she'll flunk me. >_< It's so hard for me to get up in the morning now a days. I simply just can't do it. So I'm always late. Arrgh. I practiced a bit of goal shooting after class with April and Aryanne, and I tripped over April and gave myself three bruises on the side of my leg. I named them Larry, Curly and Moe. :)) They're ugleh purply spottish bruises. XP Worked on the bulletin board after eating lunch. We didn't have History, so Coco, Ags, Mick and I hung out at Colayco until our ride came. It's spiffy and stuff now. They're making a fountain thar. I wonder how it'll look when it's finished.

Today, I was supposed to start on making up for my swimming classes, but I didn't wake up early enough and got to school too late for PE. Ate breakfast at McDo, and crammed my Asian paper while watching TunOrg practice for EntABlado. Got lucky in NatSci, as the scheduled quiz didn't push through. Typed my Asian paper during Filipino. Doodled during Asian, and did decently on my computer quiz. Went home right after dismissal. X3

Tomorrow I might go out with Ginno. I hope I do get to see him. I also have a hospital appointment, and the Society night. Hrrr. I hope we just stay home on Sunday. X3

THE Birthday
Listening to: Zone of the Enders OST ~ Kiss me Sunlight

I'll just pretend that the 5th didn't happen, because overall it was a really sucky day, and I don't want to remember spending my 18th Birthday as depressed as I was on Tuesday. Still, I want to thank everyone that greeted me. :) Even though I had a really sucky day, your greetings (even from those people I didn't know) made me feel better, one way or another. Thanks everyone. :)

Belated Happy Birthday to Berbi, whose party I was at last Saturday.

And Steve Irwin passed away. =/ Crikey.

I'm just waiting for Saturday. I can't wait for Saturday. I'll be seeing Ginno, my friends, my family, my blockmates (that aren't twats), and we'll have the time of our lives. :D Although I am a bit scared; I have no idea what's instore for me. X3; Surprise party all the way, bebeh.

My dad bought me a pair of Chucks after class. :3 We met up at Ever (I still am amazed that Ever has a real Converse outlet. X3) and decided on a pair. I originally wanted the simple, froggy green pair, but they didn't have my size. :( So I got my second choice instead.

...ok, the photo upload feature isn't working. XP

I really like the color. "Old Rose", according to mum, since she knows I'm not that nice to the word pink. XD The canvas is a bit different from the simple style, and it's got flowers on it. XD LOL. But that's ok, it's still cute. I was really hung up over the green pair though. So dad said he'd buy me another pair if I found one. ANG YABANG. XD Yeah, I did semi-yell that when he said that.

"I'll buy you another pair. :->"
"Ang yabang mo naman. As if ikaw yung magbabayad nito."
"Magkano ba yan?"
"...tangina, 1.6 lang pera ko!"

=)) Pwnd dadeh. He ended up asking money from mum. Mum told me herself though that if I did find a green pair with my size, she'd buy it for me. :3 I told her that if I did find one, I'd card it, because just last week I got my own credit card. 8D Still have to activate it though.

Anyway, I've to sleep. I've PE in 6 hours.

Saturday saturday saturday X3

Time Goes Where?
Listening to: Switchfoot ~ The Beautiful Letdown

I'm turning 18 in more or less 30 minutes.

It doesn't feel as special as it supposedly should. It's so hyped up that you'd think you'd be giddy with excitement. I told myself I wouldn't expect anything, but I guess I did, unconsciously.

I spent last week getting sick because of lack of sleep. By Friday I was getting frequent mild headaches. I think I was able to recover over the weekend because I don't have the headaches anymore. Saturday I watched Walang Himala at PETA, and Sunday I went to school for an NSTP seminar. Today we had our recollection. I went to school early and we went to the Barangay where Anj lives (which is in Makati) so we could ask for a permit to conduct research there. Went back to school for our recollection which was at 1. I ended up falling asleep through about an hour of it. Was impromtu reader for the Responsorial Psalm. Sang while I took an FX home. Got stuck in traffic, and ended up singing along to the radio with the girl sitting next to me.

And now.. I know I could be feeling better.


Happy Birthday to me; I am now 18.

God I hope I feel better later.
