Exhausted yet again

[migrated from livejournal]

Paminsan nakakasawa na talaga.
Nakakasawa makipagplastikan.
Nakakasawang ngumiti at sabihin ok lang.

Haay. Kung wala lang akong pride...

Last night:
High school friends reunion at Aveneto Pizzeria at G-3.
Grabe! It's been so long since I have actually been to Glorietta.
Nawala pa talaga ako. How should I have known that Aveneto was outside the mall?

Anyway, after dinner, we went out to watch Fast and Furious 3: Tokyo Drift.
Hehehe, man! I sure would want to learn drifting hehehe. But, I know better.
Ayaw ko naman maaksidente at maospital ahaha. pathetic.

Ayun. Marami sa mga hs friends ko ang malapit ng grumaduate. How sad.
It makes me ponder sometimes what if naglasalle nalang ako. Eh di mas masaya siguro ang buhay.
Mas masaya in the sense na wala ng problema sa hirap ng subjects and I would have become like President of Englicom ahhaha. peace bitan.

Haay. Anyway, kung talagang mapagod na naman ako makipagplastikan sa mga tao...
there's a word called "resignation."

Tomorrow and for the next 1 week and 5 days.
My mom is going to hongkong. Hmm...Sana mabilihan niya ako ng sneakers....yung jacket na hindi ko parin makita kung saan man...Then she's going to China and then Saipan. Man! I could have come if not for school. Anyway, to compensate for that, I made her guilty and she told me that I could perhaps go to Guam on December (along with Ahya and ate jen) or maybe go to hongkong as well on October's sembreak. Hehehe...Sabi ko nga kung magsama ba ako sagot na ba yung place? (We have relatives there so go figure)

So...Home Alone. Dont expect much though. I am not planning to hold any drinking parties over here. Sayang lang tiwala sa akin ng magulang ko hehehe. And, sorry rose! Napagdesisyunan ko kasi mag home alone. Inisip ko kasi kapatid ko dati for 1 month siya lang naiwan magisa dahil may classes siya sa lasalle, so the rest of us were out of the country except him. Hehehe...So ayun. I want to be able to do it as well.

Besides that, Mas malaki kick back ko kung ako lang magisa in terms of pera. =)

That's me.

Eveready battery...

[migrated from livejournal]

It just keeps on going.

I wish I was like that. This sunday, My mom and I went back to Divi (Tutuban Mall and 168 Mall) just for the sake of going there. Well, of course, we stopped by certain places to have the car checked. =)

Whew! My feet are so exhausted. I hate it! I hate being flat footed! Damn it! I could have gone for more! =p Haay, I am starting to incorporate collared shirts into my wardrobe. =)

If anyone is planning to go there, tag me along! Hehehe, this visit would be my third time there but you can say that I already know my way around. =) Haay, I just love dragging my mom along to this kinds of place. She spends for everything! 

Anyway, today was so hot!

Yesterday though...

Yesterday, Raffy, Gepol and Tipz (me) went to Divi as well to canvass for shirts. Grabe! To the extreme! Lahat kaming tatlo kinakabahan ata na baka kung ano mangyari sa simula. Hehehe. The 3 people you would never have thought venturing out to divi by themselves...but, we did it!

We pulled through!

we all met at Recto station of lrt 2 at about 9 pm then we ventured out to divi. First mistake, we rode a jeepney going to morayta! Damn him! We asked him if he was headed for Divi but he was just all silent. Damn! Well, at least he had the decency to tell us to get off and ride on the proper jeepney. Hehehe, this had to be the first and last time for this day that we got tricked.

When we arrived at divi, the jeepney we rode on took an entirely different path to get to divi. We ended up at 168 mall. Heheh, what a convenience! Then we just toured around the place looking for wholesales. Then we got pointed in a different direction. We headed for the streets were it wasnt really cool (unlike 168). It was hot! Then we started on with the march. Haay...At about 12 something we decided to go back to 168 after we concluded that there was nothing else to canvass. Then we ate there. (3rd floor of 168)

and...My God! The meal I ordered cost me 165. Hehehe, well that was because I ordered a serving of soup. I think it was hot something pork. It was fairly good. Authentic Chinese. Not the kind of soup you taste thinking as if, hey, knorr soup packs taste like this. =)

Anyway, after we were done eating, we proceeded to going around 168 to look for things to buy hehehe. (Side note: If you have a girlfriend with you, 168 will be the place to bring her, in tutuban mall, it's more male friendly because there are more stores that cater to male customers)

Then, after the 168 tour, I ended up buying a flashlight that was EEE23 operated hehehe. Raffy bought himself an umbrella.

Then on the way to where our jeepney's route was, we saw a stand that sold board shirts. hheheeh. Raffy, Gepol and I all bought ourselves 2 shorts.

Then, on the way home, we stopped over at recto. Originally to look for books. But we ended up canvassing for medals, dryseals etc. Haay...but the day wasnt over yet.

We went back to UP. Then after that, we went to Orange Segment to have the tarp printed.  Then we waited till about 6. Well of course, we didnt wait too long there, Raffy and I accompanied Gepol to have his car washed.

haay...of course, in between all of the events mentioned, talks were shared. =)

Haay...but my day wasnt over yet, when I got home, even though I was flat footed and my feet ached...I decided to go jogging! Wheeee!! I jogged 2 rounds of the oval. Hehehe, my mom and dog tagged along. My dog wanted to jog.

thunder, rain, domino logic

[migrated from livejournal]

When I just heard thunderclaps today, I realized that when I was a kid (exactly what age I don't recall) I was afraid of thunder. I recall shuddering at one of the staircases of the condominium we used to lived in when thunderclaps came. And that I'd run as fast I can to our house when the loud sounds subsided.

And then it got me thinking, when did I overcome that fear? I remember that my mom told me that those sounds are just the sounds of God and the angels playing bowling in heaven. Hahaha. Yeah, go on. Laugh. But, I am not exactly sure if that childish lie did the trick to rid me of my fears of thunder. All I can say is that, I did overcome that fear.

Why do I say that? Because if I didn't, then I would not have experienced playing in the rain. Oh how I remember the childish stupidry I had gone through when I was a kid. My friends and I played tag, we played basketball, we played hide and seek while it rained. I also remember how cold I was after each shower in the rain that's why after playing or whatever it was I did, my mom always prepared a hot bath for me. Oh good old childhood memories.

Next comes the question, when did I stop playing in the rain? Hahaha, the answer is not as stupid as you may think. At some point, when the rain was strong (back when I was a kid - if you got lost in my storytelling), I wanted to play in it obviously, after seeing my friends do so. (Yep, that's just so me...full of envy) But one of my siblings (can't remember if it was my sister or brother, but I lean on the thought of my sister) told me not to. I of course had a tantrum (the best argument a child could give - hahah, well that's what I thought so before). And then she (I am assuming it was indeed my sister) showed me her notebook and allowed me to read her notes (I knew how to read by then so maybe I was 5 or 6, to which my sister would have been 15 or 16). It was about...acid rain. After reading it, I was, of course, bedazzled. And then she explained. And I accepted (well, at first there was hesitation of course). So after that, I never really recall playing in the rain again for fears of my skin getting corroded. Hahaha. Childish thoughts indeed.


just a side:

I can now feel the tremendous responsibility that awaits me for the coming sem. I mean, duh, money matters have never been as serious as I thought they should be. If I was the only person concerned with the money then it would have been fine. I have my parents and my siblings to back me up on that. But for this case, it's an organization. UP CIRCUIT. 100+ members will need to be quenched (figuratively speaking of course)

So...I guess that's it. I could type a more elaborate account of my experiences for the past...I dont know 2 or 3 weeks (sorry for the lame entries prior to this) but I just dont have the leisure to do so.

Now...back to work.

FYI: I went to Quiapo with my mom last saturday and bought lots of DVDs. Including Desperate housewives, to which, I am through to it's second season. So, that tantamounts to 10-12 hours of nonstop viewing. (Which I did a while ago. I only got to bed 7:45 when I knew watching D.H wives would be in vain since I was too tired to even listen.



Back to work.

PS: I plan on buying a fax machine to make my work as the Finance Committee Head easier. Oh well...goodbye to my emergency money. Now it will be just about half the amount. =(
