But come to think of it, my schedule will still be packed after the 15th. Yun nga lang walang studying. One lakad after another. Kamusta naman.
Pero parang tanga.
Narealize ko kahapon na namiss ko ang school e parang 2 days lang ako di nagpunta don.
Ang sarap mag-aral sa lib yun nga lang nauubos pera ko sa Starbucks.
Stayed there from around 12 until 8pm.
Okay. Paper time. ULI.
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
So ayon. Ayos lang. Di ko naman ineexpect na maka-A ako sa lecheng stats. At least walang "C" sa transcript ko. Ayos na!!! Wahahaha!
Nakuha ko din yung ineexpect kong grade sa Personality. Nakakatawa, kung kelan last exam na, tsaka tumaas yung exam grade ko. Kung sana ganon na lang nung first 3 exams. Dapat siguro nakikita ko sya before every exam. LOL.
Soooo.... dalawa pa. Sa 15! Exam at paper!

Just finished watching THE favorite movie. If you know me, you know I watch the movie when
a) I have nothing to do.
b) I'm super stressed out.
And yes. Letter B is the reason.
I've said this a million times already. I JUST WANT THIS TERM TO BE OVER.
Stats is killing me. School IS killing me.
I haven't had an 8-hour sleep for... I don't know since when. Caffeine is my best friend for these past few days coz if I don't take a venti a day, I, for sure, will be in lalaland in a snap. And really, even though I'm so tired, the last thing on my list now is sleep. I'm thisclose to getting crazy. Every minute I think of strategies on how to do this and that, fit everything into my schedule, etc., etc.
Soooo... I figured I have to have a break. Just take it easy tonight. After all, today is a good day. A nice, happy day. If only all days are like this. Haha!

I know I have been slacking and procrastinating since school started.
I know I'm not studying as much as I usually do before exams.
I know I am constantly cramming. (E.g. Finishing assignments and papers before classes start)
I know I have been skipping a number of times already.
I got it.
I know I have been spending a lot.
I know I have been buying things I don't actually need.
I know I'm not following my plan.
I know I'm being irresponsible.
I got it!
I know I have to stop doing these.

Ang dami ko pa namang gustong gawin.
Sana matuto na ko magbalanse. Sanaaa...
Kasi ngayon madami akong ginagawa...
...pero feeling ko wala akong silbi. :(
Gusto ko sana magvolunteer sa isang organization.
Gusto ko sana isa dito tapos isa sa Pilipinas.
Alam ko na kung saan ko gusto pero hindi pa ko nagaapply kasi ayokong magcommit tapos di ko mapapanindigan. Kailangan ko munang siguraduhin na kaya ng schedule ko.
Sana, sana matuto na ko magbalanse.
Sunday, September 28, 2008
So ayon. Ngayon back to reality na ko. Aral na. Shit. Parang wala pa ngang nangyayari sa pag-aaral ko sa stats. Goodluck sa akin.
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Physically, mentally, emotionally.
Infairness, ang galing ko pa rin magdala. Haha!
Nakakatawa pa rin ako at nangti-trip.
Nakakapagod ang ibang mga bagay pero hindi kailangang maging hadlang yun para maging masaya. Yesss! Lalim! Hahahaha! Kala mo naman totoo.
Ayoko nga ring isipin na napapagod ako.
Go lang ng go!
At least may ginagawa.
At least nalilibang pa rin.

It's my birthday. E ano naman. Haha! Wala lang. Since I came here, I was never really eager to celebrate. I was always busy on that particular date so I don't really have the time and energy to plan out something or at least spontaneously go out.
Oh well. Just another day.
Now, I have to sleep. Work and school later. Without breaks.

Grabe. Marami na kong nabasang reviews sa A Very Special Love so I was expecting na hindi ako gaanong matutuwa sa kanya pero OMG... sobrang tawang-tawa at kilig-kilig lang ako the whole time I was watching. At nakangiti lang talaga ko pagkatapos kong manood. Ha-ha-ha!
Ang gwapo ni JLC at ang cute-cute ni Sarah. Napakatypical na rom-com pero aliw na aliw ako. I don't know kung dahil ba sa atake or sa actors mismo. Basta ang saya nya panoorin. Wala nga ring major kilig moves si Miggy kay Leida bukod dun sa ginawa nya nung patapos na pero nakakakilig yung mga small gestures. As in!!! Ha-ha-ha! At nasabi ko na bang ang gwapo ni JLC?
Basta. Aliw. Haha! Sundance tayo!

Aside from the fact that clean drinking water should be a right and not a privilege, bottled water adds up to the pollution. After reading about the ever growing consumerism and all that, I've decided to stop buying bottled water for the environment and for humanity. Hehe. Actually, the suggestion is to drink tap but I really can't stomach even just the thought of it sooo yeah I'll just minimize my purified water consumption. So no more plastic bottles. I'll start bringing my own water bottle. :)
You know what, I should also give up my daily caffeine fix *coughStarbuckscough* but I think I will need more will power to do that. Haha!
I lack consistency. I'd get high grades on one exam and then the next would be a total disaster. Better work on that.
3) Less tambay time. Be more productive.
Yun na. I'm still gonna work during the fall sooo I should use my time wisely.
4) Don't ask for plastic bags when shopping
You see, I work at a retail store and the amount of plastic we just throw out makes me guilty. I always feel like I'm hurting the Earth everytime I dispose plastic bags.
5) Matuto magtipid.
I need to know how to save money. SERIOUSLY. I promised myself I would really work hard on this one.
Friday, August 22, 2008
I missed this.
I'm crazy for saying, err, typing (Baka sitahin mo na naman ako dito. Haha!) this but I miss you. Seriously. I wish I can blame it on hormones but I can't so I guess I just have to admit it.
I miss you.

There's this person na nag-add sa akin sa isang networking site na hindi ko matandaan tapos after a day or two, naalala ko kung san ko sya nakilala. And then just recently, I saw a picture of the person. Tapos bigla kong naalala dun sa picture na yun (Wag na tanungin kung pano! Hahaha! Nakakaloka lang.) na nakikita ko naman pala sya around the city though kahit kelan di ko naisip na nakilala ko na pala sya.
Wahaha! Grabe kaya wag na kayo magtaka kung kahit nakilala ko na kayo tapos di ko pa rin kayo binabati kasi mas madalas, nakakalimutan ko talaga. Unless ikaw si 1230. Sadya talaga yun. Wahahahahaha!!! JK!
Weird lang din, kilala pala nya ko pero di rin naman sya namamansin tapos inadd ako. Haha! Ano ba yun? Hahaha!

I still have one and half chapters to finish. May trabaho dapat ako bukas pero nakipagpalit na ko ng shift kasi alam kong hindi ko nga to matatapos ngayon. Grabe information overload. Soooobrang daming kailangang tandaan. The thing is 'recognition' and 'familiarity' doesn't work in our exams, meaning I really have to 'know everything' to do good.
Okay, I have to sleep now.
Saturday, August 16, 2008
That I find myself wandering down your street
And I can't seem to give it up.
And I've even stopped making these excuses
For why you're stuck here in my thoughts
When it's been long enough.
And I try to keep myself moving,
But I'm not going anywhere.

Birthday ni Charrie kanina. Hindi pa kaya ng powers namin si Shortcake so iba na lang ang hinanda namin. Haha! Nagdala si Lem ng strawberry cheesecake. Strawberry shortcake sana dahil sa alaala ni Shortcake pero walang makita si Lem so cheesecake na lang. Nagdala akong balloons. Ayun, dahil dun, parang alam na ng buong UM na birthday ni Charrie kanina. Hahaha!
Ngayon, inaantok na ko. Mukhang di na ko makakaaral talaga. Bukas na lang, promise.
Hindi bagay na codename kay Lemon and Lemon. Yung itsurang yun...haha! Pero wala kong maisip na iba so okay na yun.

I know of their existence.
grief fades into the oceans.
I can't feel anything.
The distance seems to swallow the pain.
The worries, stranded.
No drops are falling from these pools of blackness now.
It's all strange.
Unreal to the new pages of the book I'm writing,
Too real to the tattered one I keep.
It floats like an island, hiding.
Waiting to be found,
Ominous puffs of black and white.
Dark rivers seem to flow steadily on the other side.
I shiver but then, I saw you,
the light is back on your face,
the old storm seemed to clear away.
"It is time", you said. "Go on. I'll be ahead."
"The chase with the sun never ends."
I hope you are resting well, Ate Nene. I know you're enjoying heaven now.
Sunday, August 10, 2008
you make me love you
My brain is sooo tired I need a break. I still have 3 chapters to read and a paper to write and I really, really don't feel like studying right now. Pwedeng idle time na lang muna?
Oo. Katamaran ito.
Kasi naman e...
Umm...wala pala akong excuse. Hahaha!
Basta tinatamad lang talaga ako ngayon.

It is sad, frightening, and disturbing.
But I think what makes it sadder is that some people are looking at the issue of immigration rather than the real problem. The suspect is an Asian immigrant. But, really, so what? It has nothing to do with what he did. His race shouldn't even be part of the news at all but, yes, it is on every article.
Ugh. World, you need to grow up.
The priest last Sunday prayed for Tim Mclean's soul. I nudged my sister and asked her why aren't we praying for the suspect. He needs it too, I think.
Oh well. Maybe even priests do forget that we should pray for everyone even for the 'lost lambs'.

Argh. Promise magtitino na ko bukas. PROMISE! PROMISE!
Sa ngayon, gusto ko talaga lumabas. :)

Maraming college survival tips na nakasulat pero eto ata ang pinakauseful. WAHAHAHA!
Universal Rejection Truth (URT) - No matter how beautiful, talented, or desirable you are, not everyone you want will always want you. Millions will, but millions will not.
1) Come out of denial - in other words, tanggapin ang URT
2) Train - magpaganda/magpagwapo, maging mabait, maging friendly, and the list goes on.
3) Prepare for the risk - Yun na yun!
4) Take the risk - Haha! Uwian na!
5) React, Recoup, Repeat - Gets nyo na yun!

Next week may summer class uli ako. Folklorama na naman. Tapos maghahanda na para sa Fall. Tapos, tapos...
Parang wala ata akong ginawa ngayong July. Wala masyadong work, wala masyadong activities. Ang highlight na ata e ang Dark Knight. Hahahaha! (Oh grabe! Sobrang cool ng movie na yun! Manonood ako uli! Haha!)
Dumaan lang ang 3 buwan ng bakasyon ng hindi ko namamalayan. Parang maraming ginagawa na parang hindi rin naman. Ewan. Basta. Ganun.
Gusto ko na ring pumasok para may rason para gumising ng maaga at lumabas araw-araw. Pag ganito kasing walang pasok, 3AM na ko natutulog, 11AM na ko nagigising at hindi ako productive. Ang sarap ng feeling ng nagigising ng maaga tipong nakikita yung pagsikat ng araw pero masarap din magpuyat, dumaldal, at may sleep-in. Hahaha! So dapat talaga may pasok na ko para maayos ko ang buhay ko.
Gusto ko na ng bagong planner pero I promised myself I won't buy until the end of July. Haha! Ewan. Napaka-symbolic sa akin ng bagong planner. Actually, iniintay ko yung day na bibili na ko kasi marami nang nakaplanong isulat at dun na magsisimula ang... ano pa nga ba? Ang mga plano. So ayun. Weird ba? Hahaha!
Went to school this afternoon. Kinuha nila Panget at Maesie yung ID cards nila. Estudyante na nga sila ng UofM. Nagbayad din ako ng tuition fee for summer. Umikot kami sa campus para makita nila yung mga classrooms nila. Pupunta dapat kami ng Mcdermot pero umaambon so hindi na lang. Dumaan na lang kami ng Superstore. Hahahaha!
So there. See? Wala masyadong happenings. Or so it seems. Haha! JK!
Dalawang tao, dalawang beses, dalawang magkasunod na araw.
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
So just avoid them all together. Hahaha!
Well, okay. Insects like this don't exist in the city. (Duh!)The ones in our backyard can't kill, of course (let's hope not!), but they are still annoying. Really annoying. But okay, okay. They're part of the ecosystem, yeah, and they help balance whatever,...okay. Annoying!

For example, all I remember is that I don't want to sing anymore. Not in front of a crowd. Not ever again. It doesn't feel like 'me' somehow. Years ago, the stage is one of the most comfortable places for me. If you ask me now, just thinking about it makes me cringe. I still sing though in karaoke nights and in music videos my sister and I make when we want to be silly. Umm...that's it.

by E. E. Cummings
somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look will easily unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose
or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;
nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing
(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
Reading poems right now. Haha. Wala lang. Nasa mood lang for some literature.

Lem texted me earlier. She's going to BDI with some of our friends and asked if I wanted to come. It sucks because I can't go. I still feel dizzy whenever I stand or walk or do anything that will require me to move a lot. Argh...
So for now, I'm going to watch more movies. And hopefully I can get some sunshine before the day ends.

"You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I'd know it for myself. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me anymore. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine."

- Sybil is now in the Philippines! Saw her cousins through webcam. Haha! Sobrang kukulit nila.
- Coldplay is coming to Winnipeg!!! SOOOBRRANGGG naexcite ako nung nabasa ko. I told Arianne and Sybil about it and GAME NA GAME na kami. Wahaha! Sabi ko kay Arianne, kailangang eye to eye na kami ni Chris Martin pag kinanta nya yung Fix You (na sana tugtugin nga nila!) Wahaha! Plano naming gastusan talaga ang concert na ito. EXCITED!!!
- Watched 27 Dresses this afternoon. I know. I'm SUPER LATE.
- Jason Mraz' song Lucky is REALLY, REALLY PRETTY. Grabe. I have it on repeat sa imeem. It's actually playing right now while I'm typing this. It's a duet with Colbie Callait! Included sya sa bagong album which will be released next week, I think. Waaah. I want a copy.
Saturday, May 3, 2008
1) Made of Honor - One reason: Patrick Dempsey. Haha!
2) Iron Man - Maganda daw. Maganda ang reviews.
3) Prince Caspian - Naku. Gusto ko tong mapanood mismo sa May 16.
Sa June pa ata ang Wanted (Angelina!). Tapos end of May pa ata ang Indiana Jones at Sex and the City. At ipapalabas pala ang My Blueberry Nights dito. Sana mapanood ko din.
Ang dami nila. Hahaha! Bigla ko tuloy naisip ang Philippine movie industry. Hahaha! Bat parang wala atang magandang palabas ngayon?

So right now, I'm stuck in my blue room doing practically nothing.

I'm still here though. I'm currently waiting for Arianne and Lem. Super idle time at the computer lab! Haha!
Exam is okay though I'm sure I incorrectly identified a frieze and a sarcophagus in Part I and totally just wrote whatever on the section about ceramics (which is super boring, by the way). Surprisingly, I enjoyed answering Part 3, the long answer section. I chose questions #2, which is about triumphal arches, and #3, about imperial portraits.
Hope my prof will be lenient. Ha-ha! While reviewing for that exam, I realized I shouldn't have skipped a lot of classes on that course. (Prof sees me at u-coll almost everytime I skip because that's where her office is. Really bad! But I stopped only when I realized she actually knows me by name. Nahiya rin ako.) It is easier to remember the art when I've already seen it in class. Well, LESSON LEARNED.
I don't know if I can still take another art class. Hopefully I can but I might take more Psyc courses next year so I'm not sure. Work in psychology is beginning to get heavier and heavier. I'm learning to accept the fact that I cannot avoid Science and Math anymore. Ha-ha. 3rd year means more of these two.
Why am I still talking about school, you ask? I'm still in the withdrawal period. I still feel that there are things that should be done even if there are none. Hindi ako mapakali. Grabe. Is this weird?

Anyway, for someone like me who doesn't know much about the agricultural society and the rice industry, it is surprising to know that we are actually that short on our rice supply and that the country has been depending on imported rice for years and years now. I thought the Philippines is an agricultural country. The image we've always had about us Pinoys is that we have ricefields and we plant rice. We have rice for every meal. One of our greatest landmarks is the rice terraces. Rice, rice, rice. Yaddah, yaddah. The reality, apparently, is the local industry is dying. The rice Pinoy's eat is not Pinoy rice. Our farmers decreasing, farm lands are being converted to anything but for agricultural use, and funds going to, ehem, importing rice (with "little" sums going to someone else's pocket!). I think we produce more workers to send abroad than sacks of rice.
Ny idol, Randy David, wrote this article about the rice shortage. Hehe. Very enlightening. Kaya ko to idol e. Haha! He pointed out that the government chose to import rice instead of helping the local farmers meet the needs of Pinoys. Kasi nga naman daw, cheaper and, ehem, pwedeng maka-kickback! Sabi ni idol Randy, the government (not just this government but also the ones that came before this) did not and does not encourage agriculture in the country. Instead, they push people to work abroad. They let the economy depend on the remittances of the Filipinos working on foreign soil. Napaisip tuloy ako. Is labour the number one product exported by the Philippines? Wow. Grabe. Hindi ba napaka-unstable nito? Pano kaya to in the long run? Magiging official national symbol na ba talaga ang Balikbayan Box?
It has a been a long, long time since the last entry. I did not stop from writing though. I just kept my entries somewhere in my hard drive. No plans on putting them here, that will be tedious and time consuming. Hahaha! Excuses.
To fill the gap, let's just say that a LOT have happened.
- School still taking most of my time. Grabe, nakakastress ang statistics. Exam 2 was horrible!
- Met a lot of new people.
- Ano pa ba??? Hahaha! Ayoko na hahaba pa to e.
Anyway, summer will be VERY busy. No complains here! I am actually excited about the next four months.
I have a confession, DON'T TELL ANYBODY:
I actually miss waking up to go to school.
