At random..

I attended a Philosophy lecture yesterday. Something about the philosophy of culture. I wouldn’t have gone if it wasn’t a requirement for PHILPER . The speaker, Mr Centeno, is an assistant professor at the Department of Philosophy in Saint Louis University in Baguio City. He started off his lecture by greeting us in Ilocano and Pangasinense. I only understood the former. It was an ok lecture. He showed us pictures of SLU. Tralalalala.

I went on a food trip with my aunt, uncle, and cousins today. There is some sort of bazaar near the Lung Center of the Phlippines every Sunday. The products range from the edible to the wearable to the cuddly (pets for sale). The food was awesome. We had Ilocano empanada. (The genuine kind. The kind that I go to Ilocos for almost every holy week.) I had churros. And my cousins and I discovered cheesecake pops. May I just say that whoever came up with the idea of putting New York Cheesecake on a popsicle stick and then covering it with chocolate is a certified genius. I ended up eating two. It was well worth 70 pesos per piece. I may have to go back there next Sunday for another one of those. They’re really, really, really goooood.

After the food trip, we went to Greenhills.

After Greenhills, we went to the First Philippine International Motor Show at the World Trade Center.

I am in love with the Mitsubishi Eclipse GT. Ma and Pa, my birthday is coming up. I am of driving age now. I have been for more than two years now. Ehem. Ehem.

After that we ate at a restaurant in Binondo. I forgot the name. But the food was great.

I love food. I really do. It’s a darn shame that I gain weight easily so I have to control my eating. I envy people who can eat whatever they want without worrying about weight gain and all.

I miss my high school friends. Hanging out with May, Nicky, and DR last Friday was ├╝ber fun. I hope we can do it again soon. Those guys are some of the nicest friends that a person could hope for.

I’m bored. I should be doing my Math homework but I don’t know where to start.

= = =

Finals week is coming up. I should start panicking now.

= = =

I wonder what I could do so I won’t get bored silly during term break. Any suggestions?

= = =

I should stop coming home at 2 or 3 or 4 in the morning. It’s unhealthy. It gives me headaches. I should give myself a curfew. Like 12 midnight or something. But I’ll do that after Sheila’s official birthday treat next week. Hehe.

= = =

I want a cheesecake pop.

= = =
I should go now. My Math homework beckons. Ciao.

Murrisch

I’d like to think that I’m a good-natured person. I am usually cheerful or pleasant or friendly but more and more people have been telling me that I’m becoming “suplada”. I kinda noticed it too. I’ve been really grumpy, irritable, moody, sarcastic (even more so), and so on for the past seven months or so. I am easily annoyed and I tend to snap at people when they get on my nerves. I never used to do those kinds of things but I guess my frustrations are starting to leak out of me or whatever. I’m not trying to make excuses for my bad behavior. I know it’s wrong to take your anger out at other people. It’s just that I can’t help my big mouth. I feel so mean. I really don’t want to be but it just so happens that I’ve come across a lot of irritating people lately. I’ve said over and over and over again that I’m not good at verbally asserting myself. I’m really not because I’m afraid of offending other people or hurting other people’s feelings and stuff. But lately, it’s like my mouth has had a life of its own. It says whatever it wants whenever it wants to other people regardless of potentially hurting their feelings. In Tagalog, nambabara na ko ngayon. It’s awful. It really is. I never used to do it before. I made someone cry because of my harshness. I’ve been told that I’m being offensive (probably because I told him that his species disgusts me or something to that effect). I’ve gotten in verbal spats more times than I can count. It’s like I’m not me anymore. I like being nice to people. I really do. I try my best to be. Because I don’t wanna be tagged as bitchy or whatever. So I’m sorry if you’re one of the people whose heads I bit off. I didn’t mean to be mean. Just keep in mind that I wouldn’t have been so nasty if you hadn’t been so callous yourself. I’m trying to be a good person again. Work with me here.
