My head is about to explode

I'm thinking too much.

And that's not because I'm ma-drama. I just have a lot to think about. This grad thing is getting really, really stressful by the day. I have officially finished experiment 1 of my study but I still have one more. Then I have to do the analysis and then the BIG PAPER. But aside from that I still have exams and papers for my other classes.

I'm tired. Really. Right now my brain just wants to rest and not think about anything that is school-related.

Half Crazy

Ilang araw na akong di mapakali. May hinahanap ako pero di ko naman makita.

Everyday I crave for something. Red velvet cupcakes, I crave almost everyday. Pero pag kinakain ko na, nare-realize ko na hindi pala yon ang gusto ko and I'm still not satisfied. Tapos nagke-crave na naman ako ng iba tapos pag nakuha ko na, hindi pa rin yun ang hinahanap ko. Right now, I want Nutella.

I have been distracted too lately. Isip nang isip nang isip. Tapos sobrang dami ring inaasikaso at araw-araw kulang sa tulog. There were days that I go classes-thesis-work. I leave home at 8.30 then I get home at around 10.30. Ewan. Nakakapagod.

Okay naman dati pero may nawala at nawala na rin ako ng gana. Oh so bad. Anyway, hope I can find enough enthusiasm to get through and finish this term without killing myself.

Snooky, ikaw ba yan?

Okay. This has been getting attention online. Apparently, this girl has been going around the city (city = Manila, Philippines). Well, OK lang naman but wait until you see what she looks like. Kinda creepy if you ask me.
From Taking the MRT or LRT... I'm not sure. Wait I'll check. Oh OK, MRT. Funny because people seem not to notice her.
From The girl karaoke-ing! Say what? I wonder where this is. May kasama pa syang mga Pilipino. I wonder if she's Filipino herself.

She looks like Snooky from that old movie where she played this ugly girl who becomes pretty. I forgot what movie that is. And the Filipiniana... I don't know. Haha! Because of this I remembered this girl I used to see on the bus. Chi and I would talk about her 'cause her thick mustache and her unibrow were bothering us. Not to mention her hair which she keeps in place by braiding in two sections!!! Que horror! We don't mean to be, ummm, mean but see that much mustache + unibrow is unforgivable. Like really. Mirrors and tweezers exist for a reason.

As for this girl, something should be up. I mean, really, this is too weird. Maybe this is some kind of social experiment. I'm kind of curious though. I'm wondering what she's trying to do.

Blue and White

I was supposed to make crinkles for my brother's girlfriend and some of our friends but I'm missing one ingredient. I made vanilla cupcakes instead. I just need to bake something to let the stress out. The cupcakes' pretty basic until I decided to put some food coloring. I just tried to see how it will turn out.
And here's what one cupcake looks like inside. I didn't really have any strategy in putting the blue and the white batter. I just put whatever. The second batch has more layers though but I don't have a picture yet.
The icing was a failure. I hated it. It lacks consistency. I didn't put any on the cupcakes except for the one in the picture.


I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, “hi.” they may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word."

Aha! Yes, too much redness today!
I'm getting really addicted, Red Velvet.

“She’s not the type of girl to wait by the phone, she won’t cry, she knows it’ll get her nowhere, she’ll laugh a lot and often, and she will live her own life. She would like you to be a part of it, but she will do just fine without you.”

“Whoever said, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone” is wrong, because you know exactly what you have when you have it. You just don’t know how much you need it until you can’t have it anymore.”

“I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me, we’ll be joined so tight…”
— Philip Pullman
