jumping from one topic to another

>> Thursday, April 27, 2006

i forgot what i was supposed to write about, so this will be something from the top of my head.

i hope this will not happen to law students: (pictures taken from postsecret)

ay, di niya nagets yng davinci code? ganda-ganda pa naman. siguro di siya mahilig magbasa. yun na yon.


oh yeah, i remember now. it's about enca and the 'diwata' who died. i already knew who would die before i actually watched the episode. sunday's special episode of enca was a major spoiler. i saw karylle wearing a white gown, hugging the rest of her sisters. white gowns are usually worn by those who have died and gone to devas (heaven version of enca). wekwekwek, major spoiler. anyway... enca will end tomorrow, waah. i hope there will be another season (feeling states, may season-season chever?!)


moving on... i'm sure that i will go back to school next schoolyear (2007). the problem is that i do not know what to take. i want to take three courses (feeling matalino?!) but i can only take one. majority of me wants to take up flcd, so i can teach preschool kids. on the other hand, pursuing a masters degree in creative writing can land me better jobs and better opportunities, may it be in the academe or in the advertising world. the greatest pressure in my life now is taking another course, a pre-med course. i've talked about this in my lj and i really need to pray very hard if this is what i was destined for. i just don't want to take med because two of my titos are pushing me to study (with the bribe of free education and expenses), i want to take it because i have a burden for it, that i am willing to sacrifice everything for a profession of a lifetime. for now, i have to focus on getting a full time job besides funworks.


when i'm in a stable position, these are the things i want to do:

- be a regular member of a swimming class or a gym with a swimming pool. i need to shape up and tone those muscles. i want to have the power abs. ahaha
- enroll in up extension and take piano lessons. buuut! no more of sir asunscion. hell.
- try to be artistic. i want to get those shading perfect. target number 1: buy a sketch pad
- buy the things i want (note: not needs, but wants. haha, feeling materialistic)


being 19 and graduated have pros and cons. i find it amusing to see people shocked because i graduated still in my teens. i don't find it abnormal -- unlike other people do -- because i went through all levels of schooling. and even if they say that it was unfair that i skipped my grade 7 (i got accepted into shs so i did not anymore take grade 7), i reason out that i had two years of nursery.

but it is difficult to get a job and have people to take me seriously. they treat me like i'm some high school kid, asking why i'm 19. maybe it's another reason why i want to study some more. so when i apply for something, i'm on the 'legal age range', and at the same time, i have finished a masteral degree.

(thinking aloud, hhhmm. maybe i could pursue that flcd course. forget about the med thing. pffft.)

when i got my atm card for funworks this morning, i had to go through 5 minutes of interview from the employee who gave me my tin. i know it's not in the script in opening an account, but i could see the amusement in her eyes as i was explaining my lifeline to her. even my dad was interrogated by the teller about my age. ahaha, great. great?


one thing is great for today. strawberry parfait from icebergs. heaven. sarap ng fresh strawberries!


something interesting

>> Tuesday, April 25, 2006

do you know that water can start a fire?

oooohhh. interesting.

(thanks to episode 11 of 'the inside' and to jace. pwet na fox, hanggang episode 13 lang siya.)

because of aluminum iodide, even a small amount of water can trigger and spark a fire. highly flammable, highly dangerous, super cool.

one big mad science project. tanong ko kaya sa mga mad scientists sa funworks, alam kaya nila yon? hmmmmm.... *rubs hands together* mwahahahha.


obserbasyon sa mga kabataang makulit

>> Friday, April 21, 2006

masyadong matalino ang mga taga ateneo grade school. haha.

o baka gusto lang nila ipakita na mayroon silang alam.

ang mga batang babae ay oober sa pagiging-OC at organized. may leader. may taga hawak ng cotton buds at cotton balls. may taga kuha ng langis. maayos ang pagkagawa nila.

ang mga batang lalake ay bara-bara. gusto nila may resulta kagad. kelangan tapos kagad. kelangan lahat leader. kelangan lahat sila magaling.

mas maraming quotable quotes pag bata. cute kasi tingnan.

"teacher, can i wear my big shirt? i don't have anymore small shirts. they're all in the hamper."

"i won't say my name. i'll write it down on my video game." (ayaw magsayang ng laway? o gusto lang ipakita yung pula niyang video game?)

"this is for you..." (sabay abot ng candy.)

"i knew that."

"are we going to make paper planes?"

"i opened the diaper. i got the powder. you want the gel?"

"no. I'LL do it. no. ok, we'll take turns."

sarap katrabaho ang mga bata. kahit minsan, parang gusto mo silang batukan sa sobrang pagkasaway.


my kiddie cousins gave me the lss. they kept on singing 'narda' by kamikaze the whole afternoon and they asked me to explain the freaking song. ahaha buti nalang madaling intindihin yung kanta. and i like the song (compared to their other favorite band: cueshe), so i gave in to their request.

by kamikaze

tila ibon kung lumipad
sumabay sa hangin ako'y napa tingin
sa dalagang nababalot ng hiwaga

mapapansin kaya sa dame ng ginagawa
kung kaagaw ko ang lahat may pag asa bang makilala ka

awit na nananawagan
baka sakaling mapakikinggan
pagibig na pala isipan
sa kanta na lang idaraan
nag aabang sa langit
sa mga ulap sumisilip
sa likod ng mga tala
kahit sulyap lang

mabuti pa nga nman si ding
lagi ka niyang kapiling
kung ako sa kanya liligawan na kita

mapapansin kaya
sa dame ng ginagawa
kung kaagaw koh ang lahat may pag asa bang makilala ka

awit na nananawagan
baka sakaleng mapakikinggan
pagibig na pala isipan sa kanta na lang idaraan
nag aabang sa langit
sa mga ulap sumisilip
sa likod ng mga tala
kahit sulyap lang

tumalon kaya ako sa bangin
para lang iyong mapansin
kase yon lang ang tangin paraan para makasama ka
mapapansin kaya sa dame ng ginagawa
kung kaagaw ko sila
may pagasa bang makilala ka

awit na nananawagan
baka sakaling mapakikinggan
pagibig na pala isipan
sa kanta nalang idaraan
nagaabang sa langit
sa mga ulap sumisilip
sa likod ng mga tala
kahit sulyap lang

the scariest story ever. mas patok kaysa kay dan brown.

>> Wednesday, April 12, 2006

This story happened a few months ago along Tagaytay Road.

There was a guy who got left behind by a pack of mountain bikers. The group was large and he didnt bring a cellphone. He crashed his bike somewhere between Picnic Grove and DBP. To make things worse, a storm came. So he walked.

This guy was on the side of the road hitch hiking on a very dark night in the middle of the storm. The night passed by slowly and still no cars. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few meters ahead of him.

Suddenly, just before the junction going to Manila, he saw a car slowly looming, ghostlike, out of the gloom. It slowly crept toward him and stopped. It was raining hard, wind blowing all around you, what
would you do? Like you would, he got into the car and closed the door, then realized that there was
nobody behind the wheel.

The car slowly started moving again. The guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve. The guy started to pray,
begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and he would plunge to his
death, when just before the curve, a hand appeared thru the window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend.

Terrified, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve. Finally, the guy gathered
his wits and leaped from the car and ran to the nearest place where there were houses. Wet and in
shock, he went into a store and voice quavering, ordered 2 bottles of Red Horse Beer, and told the
people about his horrible, supernatural experience.

A silence enveloped everybody when they realized the guy was apparently sane and not drunk.

About half an hour later two guys walked into the same store. One says to the other, "Yan...siya nga
yung sumakay habang nagtutulak tayo..."


shopping list... check!

"do you dream in black in white or in color?" - fr. javellana to shiftees

maybe i'm really a writer, because i know that i dream in color.

the night of april 1 2006. i dreamt in color.

the setting was after graduation. we still all in our togas, waving our fake diplomas, smiling here and there for cameras. abi approached me (and for some reason) and told me that she knew about mr. crush. she was trying very hard to keep a straight face. after a few seconds, she could not not anymore hold her secret. she squealed, "crush ko rin siya!!!"

(again, i can hear geopet screaming, "what's up with that guy?!?!")

anyway, moving on. the next scene i remember is sitting in my high school filipino teacher's class. miss osila's class was having a reporting and i was invited to watch. damn, i was impressed on the dedication and creativity poured in their reporting. there was dancing, movement, and even singing while reporting on something (i forgot what was written on the blackboard, i was too occupied with the presentation itself.)

after the class, a girl entered the classroom, carrying a weird gadget. five spoons were connected by the handle to form a mini fan, and it was attached to a bottle shaped like the container of wet-ones. the gadget was a reminder for the students to turn of the ceiling fans when they are not in use. the spoons would rotate when the day was over and the ceiling fans were still on. it would stop rotating when they remembered to turn the fans off. the girl left it with the class secretary and class was dismissed. i left the room with the rest of the girls.

as i was walking, i found myself inside a mall named "cybermall". everything was modern, from the architecture, to the things and services sold there. there was a store for gym equipment, there was a kiddie station that was filled with computers and futuristic machines. it was like entering the world of AI (the movie artificial intelligence). i remembered that i had a meeting at sm megamall, so i tried to find my way out. but i couldn't find my way out. i walked up the stairs, went down again, entered the
elevator, walked hallways, etc. finally, i read the directions on the walls (which i first thought were only designs) and found the exit.

from there, i walked towards megamall. as in walk. then i broke into a run when i saw
someone walking beside me. she ran with me when i ran. she was wearing a white shirt and jeans. it wasn't me, nor it was someone i knew. i kept on running.

before i reached megamall, i woke up.

later that day, i wore a white shirt and jeans and went to megamall with jace to meet up with two encandiks. ahaha

and because of that dream, i came up with a wonderful story... or maybe a play. :)
