Mga bagay bagay na walang kinalaman sa isa't isa..

It's common knowledge that I easily get bored which is why I almost never stay put in one place. I guess that's why I got some messages and a call yesterday from people who wanted to make sure that I wasn't in Glorietta2 when the explosion happened. Thank God I wasn't and nobody that I know got hurt. Thanks for the concern.

Two new discoveries:
  • Starbucks' green tea and berry cheesecake (it kinda sounds weird but it's really, really, really good, i promise..)
  • Cerealicious' Pirates of the Cadbury Fan (may cerealicious pala sa animo noh? i just found out the other day..hehe..)

International chismis:
A female politician in Germany is thinking of passing some law wherein all marriage contracts wil expire every seven years. Those who wish to renew their contracts may do so but those who have had it with their spouses may opt not to renew. She's proposing it as an alternative to divorce, I think.
What will they come up with next?

I hate getting sick. Sore throat. Cough. Colds. Headache. What's even suckier is that I can't take medicines because I'm allergic. Everytime I tell people this, they seem startled. I used to think it was a common allergy but I guess it's not. Erm. Is it? I'm not sure. I only know one other person who has the same allergies as me. Don't ask who.

Midterms na! Let's not forget Sir Pedro's (POLIGOV) reminder before exams:
"You may look upwards in contemplation, downwards in consternation, but never sidewards in desperation.."
Happy exam week, fellow LaSallians.. ^^,

I'm busy again.
I like it this way.

Especially since Oct. 21 is looming nearer and nearer.
Followed, of course by Oct. 22-24.
It's times like this when I sincerely wish that I didn't have such a good photographic memory.
I'd really rather not remember but I can't help it.
Memories are haunting me not only when I'm awake but they've actually started penetrating my dreams.
One whole week of dreaming about someone that I don't even wanna dream about anymore.
Hirap na hirap na ko.
Di ko na alam gagawin ko.
I'm so effing lost.
Bakit parang lahat ng tao sa paligid ko masaya?
Am I missing something here?
I guess I was absent when they taught the formula for happiness in school.
I'm trying my best to be happy.
Ayoko na.
Pagod na pagod na ko.
Gusto ko na din maging masaya.
Ang tanong..
Pano ba?

I’m bored.
I don’t have PHILFOR today so I only have Spanish which won’t start until 2:40.
I’ve done all my homework.
Did as much advanced reading as I can.
Organized photos.
Organized my closet.
Cleaned up a little bit.
Sorted the messages in my phone.
I’ve got nothing else to do.

= = = = =

Ayaw mag upload ng pics sa multiply at sa friendster.
Bakit ganun?

= = = = =

I went to Tagaytay and Los Banos with my aunts, uncles, and cousins last Friday.
It was fun.
Although when we stopped right outside the Makiling Botanical Gardens, I almost had a heart attack.
Checked out Ayala Greenfield Estates because my unlce's wife's brother (figure it out..nyahaha) just bought 700 square meters of property there.
It's really, really, really nice.
I especially liked the infinity pool.
And the view is awesome.
At 1 million pesos per 100 square meters dapat lang nice sha diba.

= = = = =

Spent most of Saturday and Sunday in Pampanga because it was Ate Camille’s birthday.
The resort that they rented was really nice.
I’ll post pics on multiply as soon as I can upload.
Great food.
Kare-kare, sugpo, caldereta, roast beef, crabs, chicken bbq, etc, etc..

= = = = =
Shempre kung san san nanaman aku nakakarating ng di alam sa bahay namin diba.
Di naman kasi nila tinatanong kung nasan aku, so I didn't bother telling them.
= = = = =

Nakakaaliw magdrive si Yasmeen.
Parang nasa roller coaster lang kami.

= = = = =

Ang boring dito.
I wanna go home.

Animo Overload...

We’re back. We’re one. WE’RE NUMBER ONE.

Today, classes from 4 pm onwards were cancelled to give way to what turned out to be one of the most kick ass victory parties ever. It was hard not to get caught up in the unabashed display of LaSallian pride what with my schoolmates donning outfits in the official school colors of green and white; and green and white balloons, DLSU clappers, and DLSU bandanas being waved all over the place. There was a thanksgiving mass. There was free-flowing food (although my friends and I weren’t able to eat because there were just too many people, I saw banners from Lydia’s Lechon, Krispy Kreme, Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen, Taco Bell, and so on). There was a parade of athletes; a program hosted by Iya Villania, Sharon Yu, and some alumni; and a culminating concert. I didn’t spot a single frown in the crowd, everybody was just so happy. Which is what winning a men’s basketball championship does to people, I suppose. Wuhooooo!

= = = = =

Here are just some of the highlights of today’s activities:
  • The Gary V song (could someone who was there please tell me what the title of that song is? It’s really nice.)
  • LSDC Street’s first dance (Again, could someone give me the title of that song?)
    Ty Tang’s speech

  • Coach Franz Pumaren, Rico Maierhofer, and Cholo Villanueva dancing on stage (I just realized that Villanueva is much cuter in person than he is on TV..hehe..)
  • The whole LaSallian community being told what “o-omegahin” means
  • Simon Atkins’s shirt almost being stripped off in front of the whole school
  • The athletes thanking the LaSallian community for their wholehearted support all throughout the first half of the 70th UAAP season

    = = = = =

    Host: “When we won our last game against Ateneo, Coach Franz said that ‘in this case, two is greater than three’. Just a few days after that, he and the team went on to prove that two is greater than fourteen.”

    = = = = =

    "All our defeats..
    All our victories..
    We lift them up to You.."
= = = = =
Party at The Prince of Jaipur in Taguuig tomorrow and Embassy on Saturday. Free admission daw for LaSallians. Just show your school ID.

= = = = =

Of course, men’s basketball isn’t the only sport in the UAAP. Congratulations to the Woodpushers, Tankers, Judokas, Jins, Paddlers, Beach Volleyball players, and all the other teams who competed in the first half of the UAAP season 70. We’re equally proud of you guys. (Insert applause here.) And good luck to the Fencers, Netters, Booters, Spikers, Batters, and all the other teams who will compete in the second half. Go, La Salle!

= = = = =

Despite all the criticisms from all the bitter people out there, it feels good to be a LaSallian.

I’ve seen how we’ve embodied unity, loyalty, and school spirit and it makes me even more proud to be a part of the La Salle family.

We’re back. We’re one. WE’RE NUMBER ONE.

Animo La Salle!

Again, for the nth time, once more...

A year ago today, I got Johnry the 2nd, Kat Jr., and Moogle through LBC.

So, technically, it's their first birthday.

That's why I got them out of the closet.

After today, they're going back there.

Although am seriously considering donating them to some children's foundation where they could make a kid happy instead of making me feel miserable.

I'll think about it.

Feliz compleanos..

Alles gute zum geburtstag..

Maligayang bati..

Happy Birthday, my dear dogs..

systematisierter Wahn..

I was watching the news last night when I heard that some sort of bomb went off near SLU and that some students got hurt. My initial reaction was to worry. It was like my heart jumped up to my throat. Paranoia kicked in. What if he was one of the people who got hurt? I hoped he was ok. I had to make sure so, since I don’t have his number anymore, I texted one of his friends. When I didn’t get a reply, I texted his sister to ask her if he was ok. It turns out that he was. Ok, I mean. After not hearing from him for who knows how long, he texted me to assure me that he was fine. It was a huge relief to know that he was safe. He and I have not spoken to each other for quite some time now. It’s like we’re strangers to each other because he’s got this whole other life now. I, on the other hand, have been trying my best to put myself back together since January and I’d like to think that I’ve been fairly successful. I really am starting to forget about him and everything that happened between us or at least trying my best not to think about the memories and the person with whom I created them. But when I heard the news last night, I couldn’t help but worry. Despite the resentment that I feel for him, I wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to him. I still care for him. I don’t think it’s something that will go away easily. I will always care for him. We did, after all, share a special bond even if it was just for a brief period of time.

On a totally different note…

We won against Ateneo last Sunday! Of course, everybody already knows about this. I just felt like putting it on my blog. ADMU may have won more games than us but what’s important is that we won against them when it mattered the most. Congratulations, Green Archers! Tomorrow’s the first championship game against UE. Lotsa luck to us. Animo La Salle!
