my.head.hurts. as in grabe. super. hahaha

it's so sad to admit it, but i really don't feel the Christmas lurve here. when you're as cooped up as i am here in the mountains of Commonwealth, especially, you really won't feel it, cuz there are zero, yes, count it, zero Christmas decorations along commonwealth ave. plus it rains, and then it will be hot, then cold. that kind of thing. i realized today that there are only 7 more days left till Christmas, and i have yet to wrap my gifts. or finish my Christmas cards to other people. the old me (circa last year) would have already finished packing, done my to-from cards, AND bought more candy to rot the teeth of every kid i know (and then some). but today just feels... blah. like an ordinary day. which really sort of leaves me depressed. kinda.

am excited for the Christmas get-togethers though :) can't wait for those :D

and oh yeah, tomorrow is my big big final day. wish me luck! and prayers for me please :D

freak freak freak out

my lola(my mom's mom) is starting to freak me out na. i asked her today if she's taken her medicines and she said yes, but when i asked about a specific medicine that my aunt keeps texting me about, she just made the shh-ing motions and told me to tell her that yes, she already took them. i mean WTF?! i am in a quandary here, guys. SERIOUSLY. what the HECK am i supposed to do? i asked the maid and she said that apparently, gramma dearest is running out of the orange pills, so she's... conserving? what in the world????? im now waiting for my mom to arrive so i can tattle on her. i mean, AGAIN, what am i supposed to do, cram the damned pills down her throat and go: oh grandma, if you don't drink these imma cram them into your mouth???

plus last night, she actually advised me on dating. she told me to go into chatrooms to find an American husband. SERIOUSLY??? this, on top of all her pressure on me needing to have a husband by age 25. and case in point, her dear(PWE) sister's adopted child already has a 4-month old kid. and she's my age. but HELLO, i am so not a slut.

i'm really worried about her. she keeps asking me pa where my bro is, where my dad is, where he works, where my mom is. where am i studying, and oh you graduated na pala where are you working? my dad says it's a nutrition imbalance caused by being a vegetarian. but im pretty sure she's starting to get senile. which REALLY REALLY scares me. the folks back in Iligan said the doctor there says she might have Alzheimer's, so am i just dreaming all of these weird repetitive questions and putting meaning into it to support the hypothesis? i mean, honestly. i need help over here. RIGHT THE HECK NOW.

hay. what am i to do???

Thank You Jesus!

i have not been entirely patient throughout... well, everything. but finally, i really do believe things are coming around. i feel a nice breath of change coming. i can smell it. everything is in place. i think. oh Lord please let this be it. i KNOW this is it. i CLAIM it. mine. all for the picking.

contents of highly weird post to be explained at a later date. i promise :) i love all y'all. no, seriously.

updates on my life (for all those questions everyone asks)

i am officially bored. so once again it is let us blog time. (egocentric post so if you're tired of the sort, stop reading now)

so what have i been up to? i have:

  • cleaned my room. and my parents' room- yes, folks, she cleans. my mom got a bee up her arse about the unused computer table here in their room so she said she would move it to my room to make way for the comfy sofa chair that we have in the attic. so we cleaned up a lot of the crap here (note: a LOT of dust can accumulate from years of shoddy cleaning), and long story short, we were able to move the computer and the table to my room, rearranged some of my furniture (which the maid says is a marked improvement from the way it was arranged before) downside, the pull out bed isn't pull-out-able anymore. well, you can pull it out if you push the bed allll the waaay to the right but it doesn't pull out all the way anymore. but i like it! our next project (with dad this time) is to replace and update all the crap inside the old CPU to make it running, buy a wireless router so that i have internet in my room, and then arrange HIS crap (my dad sure does keep a lot, even *REALLY GROSS* his false teeth, which i encountered in his drawer). my brother has grand plans for the PC as well, including loading Counterstrike and Red Alert in it and playing till the wee hours of the morn (i assume). i on the other hand, will load it with SIMS 2, Microsoft Office 2007, the new messenger, and all the pictures and music and tv shows my little heart desires :D
  • been to job interviews- im fairly optimistic about these career opportunities, because AT LAST, here is something i really see myself doing. well, as optimistic as a girl who's about to die under all the rejection letters(not actual rejection letters but the lack of call-backs) thrown at her. but you have to believe, truly believe in something right? i am truly believing in this. and in the power of the Divine. :D
  • almost finished my giant box of rainbow nerds- im down to my last few thousand nerds (which is a big number but also an awfully small amount of nerds). still full of love for the giver though. hahaha
  • bonded with my bro- although through no fault of mine. one day he decided he liked my room and stayed there, unshowered, until my mom shouted at him to take a shower as we might be late for an event.
  • went to skechers streetdance battle at araneta to cheer very loudly for UP, Ateneo, Xavier :D- and watch my brother brainwash a 7-year old, who got depressed because Xavier, his favorite team, did not win. to the point that when Ateneo (where his sister is part of CADs) won 1st runner up, he didn't care. hahahahahaha
  • watched The Kingdom- i absolutely love Jen Garner. she rocks my socks. great movie, seriously.
  • went to Katipunan- Lunch with Bradley, to talk about things we already IM about (hehehe) saw dr. rosana, who said it was really good to see us. hahaha i sort of miss her na i don't (rosana, not bradley).
  • went to Dawn Watch- then SM to look for a gown for Tita Lily, then Shangri-La for same (but ended up still gown-less). finally got a chance to eat at sizzling seafoods again. loooooove them :)
so that's it, in a nutshell. apparently nothing much happened to me. but it seemed like suuuch a long week. but i still miss my friends. family. :( i can't wait for Christmas!! because with Christmas comes:

  • parties- most notable are the family friends party at the Navarros', christmas parties with the block, and the annual Ong Christmas Party, which may now also be called, the older Ong cousins excuse to drink themselves silly like they did last Halloween and New Year's. i really, really, really, really miss all my cousins (except the more annoying ones. wuhoo! hahahaha)
  • a legitimate excuse to drink yourself silly with the people you love- self-explanatory, i think. hahahahaha
  • prezzies! who can forget presents, the buying, the wrapping, the giving and the funnest part, the RECEIVING! hahaha! (but i love wrapping my gifts too!) im excited to pick out wrappers and crap (how geeky am i? haha)
  • shopping for prezzies!-and clothes(possibly). might go to divisoria sometime with tita lily and mommy. i hope i get all my shopping done in time! :D
i think il end here, as i've already blabbered on for too long. ta!

say hello to timothy olyphant



the only thing we understood about this film is that he's hot. and i got so pissed pa cuz the russian girl is.. ugleeeeee hahahahahahaahahahahahahaha oh my im so mean. pero grabe. halos walang story. pero halos wala ring action sequences na malupet. naloka nalang tlga ako. hahahahahaha pero hot siya. i will definitely watch again for the hotness. whoooooo

Sunday, November 25, 2007

i LOOOOOOVE my bro. he came home from the Ad Congress yesterday (or early this morning) and he bore gifts. caramel candies for my mom, peanuts for my dad, and RAINBOW NERDS FOR ME!!! i cannot tell you how many times i've salivated over that big block of nerds (and anyone who knows me will def say that nerds and i have had a lot of history together.), wondering how it would feel to have it in my hands, ready for consumption.. and i have it!! finally!!!! i know what it feels like!! haahahahahahahaha he really knows how to take my blues away (adi, not nerds), though i so know he'll be ribbing me about finishing a whole ginormous box of nerds (although in my defense he did eat some. and so did nix, and daddy. and nicole). but i don't care. i super miss him and im glad he's back and i'm even more glad cuz he remembered me! whee!! hahaahah

watched Hitman today. can i just say Timothy Olyphant. is. HOT. yun lang. hot siya. yun lang tlga naintindihan namin ni nikki about the whole thing. timothy olyphant is HOT!!!! hahaha

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

i miss my bro, who went off to Subic to go to Ad Congress last Tues, and i was supposed to tag along with my mom when she dropped him off for school that morning, but i overslept so i wasn't even able to say bye and have a good time or not to do stupid crap in person.

we may not like each other a heck of a lot but the fact remains that he is my only sibling and so i should therefore be predisposed to preferring him around rather than away. i was watching PBB today(yeah i do watch because of my mom who got me hooked. hay mama. you alternately kindle/discourage my worst habits), and i saw the dynamic between baron and donnie, and now im thinking how sometimes, that's me and adi, y'know? we are SOOO different, but alike in a lot of ways too. but i would do anything (within my power and reaches of reason, of course. and sometimes even barring that) for him, and i know he'd do the same for me.

grabe, the rain really does bring out the emo girl in me. honestly. rain+midnight=emoluj. skewer me with a fork please.

*glass shattering*

have i mentioned how much i LOOOVE How I Met Your Mother? i don't think i have.

i love it. i love it soooo much! and the thing about it is sometimes life lessons come right up and hit you in the face.

take this week's episode, for instance, about how sometimes people sometimes neglect certain idiosyncracies about another person because they like them so much, but these "annoying habits" kill other people. like the way Marshall has to sing every little thing he does, or the way Ted has to correct everyone.. and when these things are all brought out into the open, the effect is like the glass surrounding your otherwise perfect little world shattering into a million tiny pieces. but it was also about how much you care/love a person that makes that annoying little habit just fade back into the background, or drive them away forever.

it's pretty quiet here in the house today, since everyone's away and the maids are doing.. nothing. and it's just making me think a lot about my friends and loved ones, and that episode of HIMYM. about how my friends and family sometimes drive me insane with all their annoying little habits, like how my brother sometimes has to silently repeat his last words again, or how my mom has to read aloud over my shoulder. and how i sometimes drive them crazy with mine. but because we love each other just a little more than enough, we forget they exist too. or we forget, until someone shatters the glass again :)
--------------------

i've also been music-tripping these days. i got the Emmy Rossum, Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears albums from the internet and i have to say im loving all of them (yes, even the Britney Spears, surprisingly, despite all the bad reviews).i have to say my favorite of the bunch really was emmy rossum's though. like what sarah said before, it's kind of like a modern Enya, and i quite agree. her music is really very soothing, and her voice is just something to die for. she also has a cover of Rainy Days and Mondays that i absolutely love. i would super suggest listening to it. :) JLo was ok. i have a few songs that i like from it, Wrong When You're Gone being at the top of my list (ballad, obviously). i'm currently downloading celine dion's newest album though (yes, i am a fan. does it come as a shock? i didn't think it would). im pretty excited to listen to it because i've been a fan (or my parents force fed her into my brain so i could be a fan) ever since i was a kid, and i super love her voice!
--------------------

i'm going to ICA's Homecoming this weekend! i haven't been back in three years and im quite excited to see the new school buildings. or hang out at the old ones. somewhat excited to see old friends too, since im such a loser that i can't even go out to see my semi-new ones (haha) i'm quite curious to see who's changed and who hasn't. and if i have.
--------------------

have i mentioned lately how much i HATE my life?

here's the deal: i have 3, count it, 3 trips out scheduled for today.

but i will be going to 0 events. because i have no car. i don't know how to drive. i don't have a life. loser, thy name is Lu Jean Ong.

hate. hatehatehate. even my brother, who wasn't supposed to go out tonight, is. because he is a man and can therefore commute even in the dark of night. whereas i am a woman and therefore rendered stupid.

i don't even know why im pissed over this. it isn't like this hasn't happened before. CHEE-RIST. :(

Halloween Redux






(from top to bottom: cousin love +nikki; once more with brian; the punk rock band known as the Ho siblings; me and chelsea; me and achi denise)

i know, pretty late post. but i've been busy this week (doing nothing. but i haven't had time to use the comp all that much either)

halloween was fun. better than last year's IMO. partly(or mostly. or really) because we had even more to drink this year than last year. because deep inside us cousins are a lot of drunkards who love to par-tay! i don't think i've ever seen my bro that drunk before. we were all laughing at pretty stupid (and weird. and no) things.

felt a sense of pride towards how this year's event went, since i slept over at gretty's for two nights to help with the decor, the buying of treats(!!!), and i was the one who kept texting my cousins to bring booze (so maybe im the biggest drunkard of them all. hahaha!). feel a bit bad cuz i didnt wear a costume, which apparently was the in thing this year (no one told me though).

i love love love LOVE my cousins. can't wait for the next bonding activity! :)

winner hirit- Achi Denise: bakit andaming kotse dito??!

all alone in the house of Ho

so im not at home today, which is a surprise even for me. haha slept over here at jen's last night to help decorate the house for Halloween (which we big "kids" call: night of drinking and happy times!), and they left early today to go to their angkong's cemetery (which our side of the family did yesterday)

it was so nice seeing most of my cousins yesterdat, and to be able to catch up with what was going on in our lives. had an especially long talk with brian(who i always talk to online but rarely face to face) and tin about what's happened since new year (when we were last drunk. hahaha!) apparently May 1 is a very significant day for us. hahahahaha

the nice thing about being with your cousins is that you know that no matter what you do, they will always take your side (except when you war against another one of your own, of course. haha). also, because we all grew up around each other (i practically did not have any other friends growing up because there were so many of us that i did not have time to squeeze in other kids), we all know each other a smidge better than other people, so we don't get wary about talking about weird things, or about confronting them with things that you might not say to other people directly. it's really quite nice that we've all managed to stay bonded over the years, despite the fact that most of us only see each other for special occassions, and never talk in the months between new year and september (my lola and dad's birthday).

anyway, this is getting really long. so au revoir for now :D

Friday, October 26, 2007

grey's anatomy makes me cry like crazy. i don't know why. and now, private practice makes me cry too.

i am such a sap!!!!! guh.

anyhow, my colds are back with a vengeance. if i still have them tomorrow, i will totally ask to have LOTS of medicine. and for someone to sedate me so i don't sneeze much. because my head hurts. it hurts very very very much. it sucks.

happy boitday to my dearest friend nikki (although she doesn't read this)!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D

Wednesday, October 3, 2007

so i went to Dawn Watch today. woke up at 5 to get to church at 6 and just prayed with everyone. im thinking of making it into a regular habit, because there is just something so.. profound, i guess, about people waking up in the early morning for fellowship.

going to dawn watch made me think REALLY hard about my situation though. i still don't know what i want to do with the rest of my life, not really. i keep thinking about options i can go into but it all boils down to one simple fact: im scared of doing anything, because im afraid to take the risk. hay.

life is too short to be constantly scared of leaping off the damn ledge. it's too full of what if's that will continue to haunt me.

talking to my tita made me remember something that i've wanted to do for a long time. she's been thinking of selling her furniture on the internet but is a bit scared to do it as well, and i told her i would help her with it. and that made the rusted wheels of my brain start working. what if..?

what if indeed?

more on this when i figure out what to do with my life. for now, i will prepare to go to 168 with my lola tomorrow.

blast from the past (ma'am chona rocks)

i got a letter from 2004 lu jean last friday. i didn't think much of it (and i thought it was from ICAn senior luj) so i "shelved" it (meaning i tossed it in my study table with nary a thought). until today, because JP got a letter from his 2004 self too. and apparently, freshman luj wrote this. hahahaha


it goes something like this:

March 19, 2004
dear me,
     hmm... where do i begin? today marks the last day of this school year & i'm sort of excited (duh... it's the last official school day, even though there are finals next week) As you know, this is the culmination of one hellish week & i'm still trying to get over yesterday's... uhm... thing. anyway, i hope we're still the same old us when you read this again. i hope that life will finally be nicer to us. And also, i hope you'll never forget what's happened this year, because everything that's happened this year is monumental. hehehe... Aryt, have to go. I'm not making sense anymore. still sleepy eh. (smiley) tc & God bless!

<3,
Luj (smiley)
P.S. Sana nasa mabuting kalagayan ka pa (smiley) At sana pinapansin ka pa rin ni... (smiley)

ok,i do not remember much of what happened. but i DO remember who ...(smiley) is. hahahahahaha. another letter follows directly after this:

hey luj!!
    grabe... mamimiss kita! wala na akong maingay na seatmate na parati kong kausap! hahaha! i had a lot of fun being your seatmate. sana friends pa tayo after.

justin

ok. so far this is what i remember from 2004:
  • i entered ateneo
  • joined enta. had a blast. found a real-life superfriend
  • hell week.... baka dahil sa bahay-bahayan 'to.
  • yesterday's thing-still doesn't ring a bell.
for a talkative person, i certainly didn't say much, did i? anyway, to 2004 luj (who's still somewhere inside me, prolly wondering what the hell happened), here is what happened to our life:
  • we graduated!
  • left enta. cried a lot. broke it off with real-life superfriend who turned out to be real-life bitch/crap friend.
  • hell year. dahil sa enta. at thesis
  • hindi ka na pinapansin ni... (smiley). pero naging friends kayo. at some point. maski di kayo naguusap face-to-face. plano mong batiin sya sa birthday nya.
  • life is, indeed, nicer :)
you are now great friends with a bunch of people who are the best. ever. they helped you out during thesis by acting as support system, rant pillow, shoulder-to-cry-on, drink buddies, test audience.. etc. you have a great relationship with your cousins, and.. di na kayo friends ni justin. hahahahahaha

r01 was the best. i could not have asked for a better english block, actually. kris, karen, k and i are still friends(wow puro k), and jp is now one of many im friends who i talk to regularly because of, believe it or not, basketball. i still see sarah once in a while, and, well.. everyone else i am just peachy with (i think. haha)

as for my comm block, who/m(?) i love equally, i also see a lot of. mel is my fangirl buddy, and i went with her last friday to watch elliott yamin. evi and ane and sarah(pa rin), i get to spend time with rin(though ane is missing na since she has a job. lucky bitch). 

i miss my college friends! i really think that college was great for me. it opened up my world and it became such a big world for me after 4 years. sure a lot of things didn't go for me, but i believe in the feeling that it was all for the best. all my mistakes, and accomplishments, friends i've met, lost along the way, etc. i really feel that it's leading me somewhere, and im still excited to see where this gets me :)

so to 2004 luj, don't worry, we've got it covered :) for now :)

Saturday, September 22, 2007

today is my dad and my lola's birthdays :)

randomosity

i really don't like applying for stuff, cuz i have this very strong fear of rejection, which is paralyzing most times. i guess the idea is if i don't apply, then i won't know how many people there are that don't want me. most of the time i do it anyway, but then sometimes something matters too much for me that i won't be able to bear it if i didn't get it, so i don't try at all.


it's hard to keep thinking that you're not good enough, but you keep trying through all the rejections anyway, in hopes that someone might see that you are, or like you despite of it.

**********

maybe im just lonely. /:-| ah kebs. i just need a job. or correction, i need a PAYING job.

**********

my mom and co. finally got POs (purchase orders) yesterday. we're ecstatic, dahil in fairness, those were a lot of orders. i wrung my eyes out yesterday looking at just numbers because we had to tally all the orders up so that they know more or less how many kilos of cloth to set aside. their new stocks come out second week of november so if you're curious, just trek on over to SM (megamall, makati or north edsa, where there are more stocks than at other branches) :)

**********

i like the weather right now. so calm and breezy :) such sleepy weather but i don't mind, i so love sleepy weather :)

am excited for the fall season of tv shows :) yun lang. haha

this is what happened on my birthday

my guests
my cake
family love :)
what we did til 4 in the morning


and ok, it wasn't the most perfect party and i wish people came but who am i kidding? i have never successfully planned a party and the fact that it was my birthday does not make it an exception (not bitter. swear. haha). but much gratitude and love to all the people who remembered that it was my day to grow older, and to the people who tried to make it but couldn't. :) special rin naman cuz i've spent my whole life with these people and it really was anything but a quiet night at home, what with around 6 litres of gin pomelo between the 4 of us, and a hell of a lot of screaming (and eating). Shantung is loooove :D

got my hair cut pala! when it was done the guy who blow dried my hair asked me how many inches was cut off (he estimated mga 5 cuz, as he said: marami pong natanggal sa inyo ah! sabi ko: di ko na inalam. hahaha cuz it was too painful. i estimated a good 6 or 7 inches off.) goodbye longest hair i've ever had. i shall miss you. tama si nix, nakakaloka yung first shower, when you realize your hair is actually gone. hahaha

much love to tippi, achi denise and jones, who made me schlep over to greenhills to pick out my gift :) loved it suuuper, but i wish you had let me take it all, instead of making me choose, cuz that was an excruciating experience. mwahahahaha!!! kidding :)

no love for tita t, who made me stressed on my birthday. and forgot about it. kidding :D hahahaha

watched rin disturbia. scarier than 1408. ewan. hahaha shia lebeouf is H-O-T. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

something is seriously wrong with my hormones.


i was talking to one of my cousins a couple of weeks back about why i didn't accept any of the jobs that were offered to me and i started bawling. he was going to hug me but i started to cry harder.

and today, my mom is feeling crappy so she wanted me to hug her. and now i feel all weepy.

hate you hormones.

------------------*****------------------

my brain has disintegrated to the size of a pea. strike me dead now please.

------------------*****------------------

can't wait for friday! to the guys who're coming, apologies. i may be cooking your dessert for the evening. haha don't worry, il buy enough rum to drown the burnt flavor away. hahahaha

Day Late Friend- Anberlin

i super love this song. :)

So let me get this straight
Say now you love me all along
What made you hesitate
To tell me in words what you really feel
I can see it in your eyes
You mean all of what you say
I remember so long ago
See, I felt the same way

Now we both have separate lives and lovers (and lovers)
Insignificantly enough we both have significant others
Only time will tell
Time will turn and tell

We are who we were then
Could've been lovers
But at least your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
Who knew what we knew now
Could've been more
But atleast your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
My day late friend

But thoughts may change
And times they rearange
I don't know who you are anymore
But thoughts come and go
And this I know
I'm not who you recall anymore
But I must confess
You're so much more than I remember
Can't help but entertain this thought
Thoughts of us together

We are who we were then
Could've been lovers
But at least your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
Who knew what we knew now
Could've been more
But atleast your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
My day late friend

So let me get this straight
All these years and you were nowhere to be found
And now you want me for your own
But you're a day late and my love's just still renown

We are who we were then
Could've been lovers
But at least your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
Who knew what we knew now
Could've been more
But atleast your still my day late friend
We are who,
We are who we were then
My day late friend

Ang Sarap Maging Atenista

yesterday was the first game i ever watched live in Araneta. and boy, did it not disappoint. sarah and evi are the best buds ever, especially in times like these. it was really fun to see a whole 'nother side of sarah, that of screaming shrew (hahahahahahaha). all in all, that was one of the best days of my vacation so far. we were supposed to go surprise leloy in his class but the joke was on us, he gave the class a free cut and WAS NOT THERE AT ALL. but yay! because we saw this girl lurking around:


and then we saw this little gem in the room schedule for Com B:
which confirms sir mark's (who evi and i chatted up in the smocket) comment about everyone having a crush on dear leloy. hahahaha
went to gateway to hang for a bit and then we roped sarah into watching 1408 with us. as evi said, it's perfect for before the game, because you'll be all scared and shit, and then you'll be all happy at the game. and evi, i still hate rollercoasters. ('_')
and then, THE GAME!!!!!

it really is a different feel when you're there live and cheering for your team. ibang klaseng rush. and it was really a heart attack day for the three of us, what with the movie and the frakkin game. exage talaga yung suspense nun, we were thisclose to losing. which, not bad considering we were behind almost the whole game. we were in Upper A but personally, we had some of the best seats, the people around us were so pumped up and everything and that made it more exciting for us (especially for me, i think, it being my first game and all. hahahaha loser.) plus our babble dude (guy in the video) was WAY encouraging, and i think secretly has a crush on sarah (hahahahahahahahahahahaha i'm not kidding.)
but grabe. all i can say is, THANK GOD WE WON. because if we lost im not sure id still be alive, because sarah will kill me, then herself for dragging me to watch with her. when that ball swooshed in, wow. ang sarap siguro pumuntang admu ngayon just to see the student body rejoicing.
wow. til the next game, then :)

ho-hum

my dad bought me new earphones to replace my shitty apple ones (i've only used it for 4 months and then the right one started sounding wonky). i love it super much! :D it's philips, white, and has interchangeable caps to match your iPod/mood (hahaha). plus the sound is a bit more crisp and defined, with extra bass. the only thing i don't like about it is that it doesn't have that slide-up/down thingy so you can just let one earbud hang when you don't use it (idk if im still making sense and i don't care). and it's super long so i had to tie it back with a twist-tie. but i don't mind. because they're new and i loff them!! :D:D 


i am dying so badly. everyone has piled work on me today (because im a bum) and these are what i have to simultaneously do:

-> call someone for my mom at 2pm
->call HSBC
->write a letter to HSBC for my mom
->make sample tags for.. you guessed it, my mom
->print my mom's dream bags from www.dooneybourke.com (frivolous, i know. and such a waste of trees.)
->upload videos
->wait for Michael's email for further instructions

and here are the things i WANT to do today:
->meander down to the mini-grocery to buy me fortification (read: junk food)
->upload my pictures to my multiply
->make my blogspot a new layout
->PS2 all day (hello x-men legends 2 i've yet to finish you)
->laze around, do nothing, read a book, download songs, sleep. eat. happy happy times.

and so far, this is what i've done:
->absolutely NOTHING (sing it with me now! WAR! HOO! HA! hahahahahahah)
well, actually not nothing. i'm halfway done with the uploading. and i know na (somewhat) what to do with the sample tags. i might leave off the HSBC thing til tomorrow. or friday pala, because im watching the game with sarah tomorrow.

i loooove it soooo much my earphones match my iPod... hahahahahaha

uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

whenever i clean my room, i always start with the most important stuff: my books, then my earring collection, because these are the things which, more often than not get displaced in my room cuz i read too much, and i have absolutely no mercy left for my ears. hahaha!! of course after i fix my books, usually i get too lazy to fix the other 2/3 of my room. but it's cool. i will get around to it someday. hahaha


i was going to post something snippy about my lola's sister, but i decided to delete it. vitriol is not something i want to share to the world anymore. 

in other news, whee!!!! we're going to tagaytay tomorrow!! i'm so excited! except for the fact that i have my period and therefore cannot swim ever. i sooo ENJOY being a girl. menstrual pains are the highlight of my month and i do so look forward to having them. not. gah

i love the weather, even though it's scary. rain is always cool for me (except when i step on a puddle, that is.)


we picked up my a-ma yesterday from the airport and i have a feeling she don't like us too much. hahaha!! not even 5 minutes into the car ride she was asking when we were going to drive her to makati, where her horrid sister lives (think bella flores at her worst, na may kasamang paawa effect a la kristine hermoso). my mom felt sorta pissed tuloy, and i felt kinda bad for her cuz she hasn't seen her mom in a long time and then she chose horrible sister over daughter. my a-ma was with an aunt who was going to visit her daughter in AUP(adventist university of the phils) and a cousin of theirs, auntie jean. i am so mean for saying it, but my goodness, trial by fire hanging out with them. nakakaloka talaga hahahahaha and according to the maid, they all woke up at 5am kanina, and had already showered. by mga 830 siguro lola makati's husband (who is one of the nicest people in the world) came to pick them up na and i awoke to the sound of one of my titas' voices (auntie remy, who stays here with us sometimes). God they are a LOUD family. intense. sister kasi ni auntie remy si auntie jean, at para silang nagcocontest na palakasan ng boses, at 9 IN THE MORNING NAKAKABALIW di na ko makatulog ang ingay ingay nila. and when it was time to leave my a-ma couldn't wait and rushed out the door. di na ko naka-goodbye. hahaha medyo na-happy si mommy dahil wala na siyang eentertain, at wala nang nagkakalat sa bahay (besides me), kasi kung saan saan sila kumakain! parang feed the rats and roaches din ang drama. crumbs everywhere *shudder*

gaaah im bored. sana matuloy kami later. para pwede ako pumuntang ghills at kumain. whoooooooo

idk about anyone else but i kinda like the new bsb single. hahaha damn you sarahmoralesyouarethedevil. hahahahahaha

random crap from today

i remember something from what Pastor Peter was telling us about this really great boxer from his time (his name escapes me) who was known for knocking down his opponents, but at one fight in his career was knocked down in the first round, but got up again and proceeded to knock his opponent down and win the fight. when asked by the reporters what was going through his mind when he was lying there on the floor of the ring he said: "What the heck am i doing here on the floor? i am a champion! i have to get up!" and similarly he says that as Christians, whenever we're deceived by the devil and find ourselves in the mud, we have to ask ourselves why the heck it is that we're still in the mud, pick ourselves up and move on.


so far this week has been pretty eventful for me. last saturday i got to go to serendra on a very rare night out with some of my relatives, and i got to bond with justin which is always nice, and with achi denise over the phone. haha di pa kasi ako nakuntento at kailangan talaga may kausapin pa kong iba. hahaha!

sunday was pretty awesome as well. i got so struck by the message that i was a bit afraid that biglang i-point out ako ni pastor at sabihing: this is for you. hahaha got to go to a vegan seminar as well and eat dinner in a vegetarian place, the first time siguro na i was able to eat a full meal na completely devoid of living animals in any kind. but it was good! not something i wanna eat for the rest of my life but nevertheless diba?

monday saw me going to glorietta to go to a job fair with my pals e and s. syempre e and i being WAY EARLIER than s walked around for a bit after breakfast and somehow found ourselves in Timezone, playing crazy games. hehehe after s got there, we spent maybe 30 minutes inside the venue, then ate lunch and bonded and never went back na to the jobfair. a joined us after her first daw of work, and it was really nice na impromptu man, pero kumpleto kami, and parang no time lost between everyone.

it's so nice to have friends na ganun, the pick-up-where-we-left-off type. i got stuck in a friendship na for the longest time, i felt that i constantly had to work to keep the friendship, but it's so easy with these guys, and with most of the friends i managed to keep na rin from hs. walang nagagalit dahil you don't spend as much time with them anymore. no why-don't-you-come-visit-me-anymore?s. walang demands. easy. despite the undemandingness of the friendship, you're more inspired and willing to try anything just so you guys meet up again. plan more outings, extend your curfew just to be able to chat a little longer, call them up on the phone just because.. that kinds of stuff, y'know?

i never forget. and i am eternally grateful. :)

Saturday, August 11, 2007

Friday, August 10, 2007

star-struck! haha

my mom woke me up yesterday at about 11 (i slept at 4) to say that she wanted me to go with her to mall of asia, where the sm corporate offices were cuz she was going to talk to the merchandiser who orders from her. so there we were at around 3 till 6 cuz the sm people are SOOO SLOW. her appointment was for 415 and we waited til about 545? 6? something like that. and it's beside the point.


because while we were waiting MARC FREAKIN NELSON EXITS THE FREAKIN BUILDING. 

*my mom dies from giddyness at this point*

about 5 minutes after he leaves she is still talking about how cute he was. this from the woman who never looks at cute men, only cute girls (to see what they are wearing and to make lait, not because she LIKES them.)

and where was my camera? in the car. dammit. hahahahaha

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

can i just say..

i'm still bored. so, here i am again, blogging. hahaha

Thursday, August 2, 2007

only because i've been thinking about it for too long

dear you,

i don't know if you know who you are, but i hope you do. please stop pretending we're still friends and that little episode you had a few months back meant nothing because you know what? it did mean something. friends don't lash out at friends just because they had a bad day, or they made wrong decisions. you know what friends actually do? at the very least, they ASK for the full story before they blow their top, which i should say you have never done for me. i wish i could say i forgave you or that i've forgotten, but i have been cursed with an extremely good memory, and a tendency to remember every shitty little fight you picked with me, and every small injustice you did to me and i'm sorry, but i cannot have friends who act like poison in my life anymore. i've learned enough to realize that though we had a lot of fun times, you will never change. deep down you will always be that "friend" who got mad at me before she found out the truth, several times. plus you had the gall to insinuate that i was the reason for the gap in our friendship. what the heck was that for? a relationship goes two ways, y'know, and while i do admit some fault, the blame isn't entirely mine because i can't keep running back every time you said you were sorry and then blamed me for everything that went wrong when we fought. i have stood quietly back while you ranted and raged but no more. this time it is really over. i will talk to you when necessary, and someday i may find it in myself to forgive you for all the shit you gave me, but for now please stay away, because i can't talk to you without getting mad, and i really don't like getting mad. it is a waste of energy, energy i'd much rather expend on friends who DO care.

sincerely,
me.

---wow. that WAS cathartic.

my dna.

i found my imagini visual dna! hahaha i did mine months ago but i was too tamad to post it. but now that i want to post it, my widget thingy keeps showing "undefined"

yehey! i can now officially be called "html-stupid"

in other news, still sick. and i dunno where the hell i can buy medicine or how since i dont think my mom left money and i spent my last one buying cheetos. (hehehe) ah wait crisis averted. genius daughter calls genius dad. hahahaahahaha

i miss summer. and my friends. and i especially miss me. :(

am now coughing my lungs out. but at least i am no longer feverish. but i've lost my voice. again. for about the 3rd time in about a month. i don't like the feeling AT ALL.

plus, how am i supposed to snag a job if i keep on getting sick?

ugh, so frustrating.

happy weekend to me!

i absolutely loved this weekend!! actually, i loved the week!! because:

  • i met up with V in ateneo and A & E in makati (which would have been funner if S were there rin) last wednesday which marks the first day since forever that we've met up and i left the house without my mom. i also got to commute by myself for the first time from katipunan to makati which i am sorry to say i am extremely proud of, being sort of sheltered, you might say. hehehe
  • my cousins tippi & denise also spent the night here last friday, and we passed the time playing mario party with my bro, and MY GOODNESS it is sooo addictive. nung friday we stayed up til about 3 in the morning playing, and then woke up and spent the entire day playing again! hahaha
  • met up with N and her family today for the first time in a really long time and watched the simpsons movie. super funny! hahaha plus i miss nix, josh and nicole cuz they remind me of the carefree days of summer. hehehe
in a week i managed to hang out with most of my favorite people, and it is so fun to be with them because they are evidence that life hasn't managed to leave you alone just yet, and you learn lots of stuff about them and yourself in the process. :)

hope next week is just as fun :)

Friday, July 27, 2007

i love...

  • my iPod. it is such a lifesaver in times of great boredom and insomnia. wala lang. and i don't mind that it's just a nano, since it really was what i wanted talaga (because i wanted to exercise with it, which i did once. haha).i just wish it had more memory so i can cram more songs in it. right now i have about 640 songs yata and im almost at full capacity and im frantically trying to reorganize and take out the songs that i don't really listen to so i can cram newer songs in it. im thinking if i should sell this one to get one with bigger capacity (4gb kasi eh) pero ewan, i've come to love it so much. hahaha
  • books. again, people are surprised whenever i say it, but it's true, i love to read. right now i'm hooked mainly on three genres: romance novel (don't kill me), chick lit (Meg Cabot rocks) and children's literature. or actually young adults. not sure where the books fit in eh. sa romance novels, i got hooked way back in grade 6 when it was popular (haha) i actually asked for one for my grad gift (which some bitch kleptoed from me in HS. you know who you are), and now i still collect them. i have favorite authors, obviously, but i also used to buy those cheap-ass for sale novels which really isn't about the story so much as it was just the sex (haha) pero swear, most of the stuff naman that i read actually have stories enough that at first read i just sort of skim over the sex part to finish the story. hahaha i am sort of proud to say that i have almost everything by Lisa Kleypas, and a smattering of other books by Jude Deveraux, Julie Garwood and Judith McNaught. hehe on chick lit, i think i started cuz of my still-in-high-school cousin, and the obsession started with Meg Cabot and Princess Diaries. i have two favorite series, which are Gossip Girl and The A-List. i stopped collecting the former though cuz i found the latter to be a smidge more interesting. i dunno if it qualifies but the best book yata na i read from this genre has got to be PS I Love You by Cecilia Ahern. that book turned me into a blubbering mess, i kid you not. i also like the meggin cabot books, the ones she writes for the not-teens-anymore :) as for children's lit, i guess it really did start with Harry Potter (which i swear i will get one day, when they publish a box set or an unabridged version). after that i started to read some cornelia funke (she is said to be the german jk rowling). i totally love this book she wrote called The Thief Lord (which is now a movie) and now I'm actively trying to buy all of her books na rin :) i also used to read tom clancy cuz of my dad, and the dan brown-esque books (which included dan brown, of course) but mainly, those three genres are what im hooked on :D
  • television. of course. i have a lot of facorite tv series which i won't go into detail about anymore. suffice to say there is a great many things that i will watch. haha special mention to grey's, house, heroes, las vegas and how i met your mother though. i love these to bits :D
  • food. have i mentioned how much i love cheese? and junk food? cheese junk food is the bestest :D i used to be known in HS as the junk food expert (not one of my prouder moments, in retrospect.) because i knew what new junk foods were the ones you simply had to try and which ones weren't worth your money. i also love pasta, one of the reasons why i also like the TV show everyday italian :D
i think i'll stop there for a while. my head is starting to ache. haha the reason for this post? absolutely nothing at all :D hahahahaha

Thursday, July 26, 2007

i woke up thinking about my cover letter. how banged up is that? well, i did want a sign from God saying i really should get a job and NOW, and i think that was it.

so i've just finished making my cover letter and it (along with my resume) is now traveling at the speed of who-knows-what towards my potential employer's email. hope i get in. hope my cover letter was coherent enough(as opposed to the haphazard way i do my posts). i really should have listened when they taught that in school. hahaha

now, i can go back to sleep. :D heaven, thy name is bed

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

hmm..

i really don't know why some people are surprised when they find out i like to read. Mr. F, my first potential boss told me he was surprised that i described myself as an extrovert but my hobbies were introverted. yeah man like it's a crime to like watching tv and spending time reading?

i started reading when i was about 2, or so they say. i learned how to cuz my yaya used to carry me around the drugstore (we used to live in caloocan on the second floor of our drugstore) and point out different medicine labels and go: enervon! revicon! (you get the drift). i haven't stopped since.

question then: do i really look that flighty? God, i hope not. because while i have started to accept that i really don't qualify as a nerd(someone else's words, not mine), i do wish people would at least credit me for having a brain that isn't completely stagnant.

le premier post (M. Yap is so going to kill me.)

testing.. testing.

ok now that i've established that this does, in fact work, lemme go right on to a few not so random things which i will now spew out in random order(that i arranged for better readability):

don't you just love hanging out with friends you haven't seen in God-knows-how-long? here's what i think: hangin' out with them gives you a sense of what's changed in your life and what hasn't. oh i know reflecting randomly does that too, but it's so much more fun with friends right?

can i just say, i am so happy to be blogging again. because i am probably the most tamad person i know right now, i've been too lazy to blog. but thanks E and A (oooh una ako. mwahahahaha) for convincing me to start yet another blog. you are right. posting with the feeling of not having to cater to anyone is quite fun. hehe

on the subject of E and A (this is sooooo not me. haha) had a fantastically happy time talking to you guys, laughing and talking too loud like we owned bloody pizza hut. i won't post the quotable quotes anymore, il leave it to you guys. hahaha (truth be told, iv forgotten most of them na. haha) side effect: i am feeling strangely lethargic. mebbe it's because of all that pizza. and bitching. not that i'm complaining.

a lot of things have changed between the three of us these past few months, but it's comforting, the knowledge that we've all grown but we're still the same people we were 4 years ago: bitches. hahahahahahaha but seriously, it's nice to know the friendship is a pick-up-where-we-left-off type and not a whine-until-you're-obligated-to-bond type.

happy birthday vargs (kunyari binabasa mo to. hahaha) thanks for inviting me to extra in your grad pic. penge copy ng lahat ng pics mo dun ah. hahaha and nice to know you're still you.

my first post. bow. *grin*
