Random random.

Tapos na ang nakakastress na 1st term. Ewan ko ba kung bakit, pero nakakastress talaga ang term na ito. Siguro dahil sa pahirap na pesteng organic chemistry na yan, o dahil sa oc na psychopathic statistics prof ko, o dahil sa sandamakmak na papers sa psych majors ko. Sa sobrang stress, di nga ako halos makapanood ng uaap games, at hindi ako nakakapag-update ng blog (halata ba?). Pero looking back, parang ang bilis din ng term na ito. Ang bilis ng panahon. Ilang terms na lang, graduate na ako. Grabe. Ang bilis.

Speaking of terms, start na ng 2nd term sa wednesday. Another enrollment nanaman, another gastos, another subject adjustment. Magkikita nanaman kami nung masungit na babaeng academic assistant sa CLA office para mag-ayos ng schedule ng subjects. Pila nanaman ng mahaba, bayad nanaman ng adjustment fee. Same old routine, new term.

Nanood ako kanina ng UAAP cheer dance. I was hoping na mas maganda ang ipapakitang routine ng alma mater ko. Syempre excited ako kasi matagal nang usap-usapan na maganda raw ang ipapakita ng pep squad namin. Pero ayun, nabitin ako sa routine nila kanina. Disappointed, even. Pero at least, may improvement. Yun nga lang, konti lang. Congrats nga pala sa mga nanalong koponan na FEU, UST at UP.

Nanganak uli ang alaga kong hamster. Tatlong maliliit at makikislot na daga ang kanyang iniluwal. Sana naman this time, wag na nyang kainin yung mga anak nya. Sana naman this time may mabuhay na sa mga anak nya.

Di pa pala uuwi ang tita ko from Saudi. Sana naman makauwi sya bago man lang ako grumaduate from college.

So there, i'll try to update my blog as much as I can. So there, stay tuned.

I heart jjampong. :D

I have never felt this empty before. 3 months after a tragedy, I still find myself loving the one who have been the cause of my downfall. Everyday, I still wish that things would go the way it did. But I know that that is something unlikely to happen. With the way things are going on, probabilities of getting a second shot at love is bleak. I admit it, I can't get over it. And what hurts me most is that it just took 2 weeks or so for that person to recover and completely erase me on that person's world. But as my friend once told me, there's no use crying over spilled milk. I guess the only option left for me is to move on. I just hope I could forget all those bitter memories as fast as I could, because I'm tired.
Cheeseburger. Cheeseburger. I hear it all the time. A day won't pass without me hearing someone or reading a text say "pa-cheeseburger ka naman.". The phrase have obviously been a part of our vocabulary nowadays, and I just can't believe how a single commercial created history and have been a part of our culture in just a matter of days. Indeed, advertising and the media have this intense power to influence people and change our culture. Which makes me want to regret why I chose psychology over advertising.
Recently, I've been trying to convince my Dad to buy me a car so that going to school won't be a problem anymore. But the thing is, he doesn't like my choice of car. He said that the car that I wanted was not fuel efficient, expensive to maintain and most of all, hard to find. But can he blame me for wanting an old school Volkswagen Beetle? Gaaash.
I want to enroll myself to a fitness program. Gotta remove the flabs. Damn love handles.
The world knows how much I love my true friends. Importante para sa akin ang mga kaibigan ko. Mas mahal ko pa sila kaysa sa mga naging ka-relasyon ko. And i'll do anything to keep and treasure my friends. Mas gugustuhin ko pang mawalan ng lovelife, wag lang mawalan ng mga kaibigan. Mas masakit mawalan ng kaibigan kaysa ng lovelife, at ayoko mawala ang mga kaibigan ko. Kung may tampuhan man, ayos lang. Parte ng buhay yan, basta ang mahalaga, after all the trials that may come, we'll remain as friends. I'll do my best to be the best friend you guys could ever have, and I say amen to that. To all you guys (yeah, you know who you are), here's to a friendship that will transcend a lifetime. apir! *apir*
I'm getting addicted to Pocari Sweat. Damn, it tastes good! Too bad it's quite expensive.
Philippine primetime tv sucks. If it weren't only for the news, I wouldn't even dare open our television set. Sana kasi may cable tv na samen. Hay.
iBlog4 was awesome! I enjoyed it, and I have learned so many stuff from the speakers. Although there were some parts of it that I found boring, I enjoyed iBlog4 since I also get to spend some time with the bloggers. The event inspired me to blog again, and gave me an idea of starting an event or making shirts for bloggers. I hope I could find pursue those ideas, para naman makacontribute ako sa pinoy blogosphere.

I'm sleepy. Gotta rest. Got classes tomorrow. Damn summer class. Such a bummer.

I just had this weird weird encounter at the supermarket just this afternoon.

Here's what happened. My mom asked me to go to the supermarket to grab a bunch of mosquito mats and 4 bars of soap. At first, I refused to do the errand because the temperature outside was way too hot and the supermarket was a bit far from our place. But after some negotiations, incentives (cue: hindi sya pera) and threats, I gave in and agreed to do the job. So there I went shopping for the goods she ordered me to buy. I did not had a hard time finding the items, as they were common and easy to find. As I put the items down on the cashier, a lady queued behind me. She was shorter than I was and her age was 40 years ahead of me, basing from the lines on her face (parang intermediate pad lang dude!). She was quite annoying with the way she carries herself. Also, she goes around talking with the people on the line, as if they were close. Then, the time had come when she talked to me. I had no choice but to talk to her, because it would be rude to ignore her right on her face, even if I wanted to.

  • Old lady: Oh, you're buying that much mosquito mats and bar soap? Looks like you're hoarding them!

  • Me: Well, ma'am, we need this much since our house isn't that near this supermarket. And besides, it's better to be always prepared, won't you agree?

  • Old lady: Yeah. I saw people like you nga eh, doing hoarding so many stuffs. (anu daw?)

  • Me: Ah, ok.

  • Old lady: It's like so poor kaya. It got me laughing all over (eto na yung mga panahong gusto ko ihambalos sa mukha nya yung bareta ng sabon, pero kawawa yung sabon eh, saka i don't want to get rude). Pero I get your point. It's so malamok these days nga, lalo na dun sa Molave, kasi we live in Ayala Alabang eh.

  • Me: Yeah, I agree madami nga naman pong lamok these days, and you know it's so expensive to get sick these days. So it's better to be preventive.

  • Old lady: So, you study in *bleep*? (note: I was wearing a school shirt) You we're lucky against us ah, defeat nyo kami.

  • Me: Oh? where were you from, ma'am?

  • Old lady: I am from *toot*, and my daughter would be going there come June. Hehe. Ok lang matalo nyo kami sa basketball, we're always better than you naman eh.

I got irritated at this point. She was so acting like a bitch turned prune, and I can't take it anymore. I figured that I'll answer her and quickly pay the bill and run off.

  • Me: Ah, ganun po ba ma'am? Kasi po kami sa *bleep*, tinuturuan po kami maging humble. Mayabang po kami sa hard court at sa competitions, pero marunong po kami rumespeto ng aming mga kalaban. Pagkalabas po ng hard court, equals po ang tingin namin sa mga kalaro namin, hindi mga taong kakumpetensya. Kaya po sa totoong buhay, ganun din po kami. Tinuruan po kami ng *bleep* na maging mapagkumbaba at hindi maging mapagmataas at judgemental sa mga tao, anu man ang antas nila sa buhay. Siguro naman po, tinuturo din sa *toot* yun no? Kasi po kung hindi, kahiya hiya naman po iyon, mataas pa naman po ang turing ko sa paaralang iyon.

  • Me: Sige po ma'am. Mauuna na po ako. Pakibilisan nyo na lang din po ang pagbabayad, dahil yung nasa likod nyo eh mahirap at maraming hinohoard eh. (sarcastic na ako at this point).

I went out wanting to kill that bitch-slash-prune. One thing why we Filipinos couldn't move on to prosperity is that we tend to be judgmental. We tend to look low at our fellow Filipinos. We laugh at the mistakes of others, enjoying the downfall of our neighbors. And, with the case of the old lady, she acted in such a way that she offends people who are working hard to earn for a living. It was such a disgrace not only to her stature but to her alma mater. Her alma mater is no doubt one of the most respected institutions here in the Philippines. Not that I want to disgrace that school, but the old lady was wrong, kahit saang school pa siya manggaling. My point is just that we Filipinos should stick to the values our schools taught us. We carry on the lessons our schools taught us, but we tend to forget the values our school stands for. WE shouldn't disgrace our schools, and stop the crab mentality.

It's ok to be a prune. It's inevitable, anyway. Just don't be a bitch.

Paparating ang tren. Bumusina. Naghanda ang mga tao sa istasyon.
Nakasakay si Crush sa tren, nakakapit sa hand rail. Tumigil ang tren.
Bumukas ang pintuan. Pababa si Crush, pasakay si Jed.

Crush: Ui! Jed! Hello! Kamusta? (sabay kindat.)
Jed: Oh, hello! (kinikilig na speechless.)

Tumunog ang door buzzer. Sumara ang Pinto.
