i don't mean to gripe on and on but.. actually i do.

it's just that i'm so sick of you. sure we get along most of the time, but when you treat me like an infant i just want to strangle you until i don't have to worry about hearing from you ever again.

if i could resign just so i don't have to work with you, believe me i really would, it's just it's really bad timing right now. ugh.

so where was i when ateneo bagged the men's bball title?

i was in the office, cheering with several other Ateneans and fans who couldn't get away from work. hahaha

ok, this post is probably 3 days too late. but i'm still happy to report that i went from sporting an indifferent attitude towards sports in general and basketball to be specific, to actually watching the final 2 games of the season and screaming my lungs out, although i did watch game 1 at home (with a bunch of screaming fans - my family) and again, game 2 at the office (with a bunch of raving lunatics. okay that mostly described me. haha)

all i can say is the ateneo community in the office makes up for a huge chunk of the people. you realize this on occasions like this, when work seems to stop and all the televisions in the newsroom, usually tuned to different channels for monitoring and are thus on mute to prevent disruption of work, are almost all now tuned to studio 23 for the live telecast. the eruption of cheers as the final buzzer sounds... priceless. it's a helluva lot better than watching alone, i tell ya. and in my opinion, i think the third best place to watch an ADMU-DLSU game is at this office (third to actually being in araneta and in school). (plus for the lulz, one anchor actually asked us: so kailan ang next game? um, tapos na. champion na ang ateneo. hahaha)

funny that the school spirit bug finally bit me after i actually graduate from school. oh well, see y'all at the bonfire! ;-)

i actually miss being in school. i wish i could be there to bask in the glory of knowing we are the champions. it's days like those (and when i'm swamped with work) that i wish i were still a student :-) pag-uusapan talaga yan for days on end eh, the "where were you when we won?" questions, the "next season ulit!" comments... haha whereas sa office, back to work kami mga 5 minutes after. well, except for me and jamie, who felt the need to go apeshit and actually chant the school song with fist raised through the hallways of the office. and i, being the good friend that i am, walked along and laughed at her. hahahahahaha!

so where were you when we won? :-)

Testing, Testing... 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1

... and, we're back!

Fall TV is the best TV in all the world, just wanted to resurrect my dead blog here with that thought. haha

so what have i been watching?

  • Project Runway - ooh can't wait to see who gets Auf'd next
  • Project Runway Philippines - purely for the Phillip Tampus LOL-worthy english moments. choz of course for the fashion, what else? haha and my heart breaks for the way that my all-time favorite, Ivan, was super mourned over last ep :D
  • Gossip Girl - OMGWTFBBQ HAPPENED??
  • One Tree Hill - see above. hahaha and omg my first bawl of the season courtesy of this show. as in from start to finish of ep 3 i was crying like a crazy girl in front of the laptop at 1 in the morning. i'd like to blame it on the hormones, but that episode was really something.
  • House - such a big 'awww' season premiere, really. oh, and cool medical case. currently downloading ep2
  • How I Met Your Mother - (!!!!!!!!!) OOOOOOOOOOOOOMG!!!!! yun lang. hahaha
  • Heroes - i read the recap of this episode before i actually watched it. but i have to say it was so weird to see it all played out. but i have to admit i am losing my interest in this show. :( as in, i was playing freecell (a fairly new addiction) and IM-ing mervin and sarah while watching

oh, and i'm waiting for these to air, too:

  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Pushing Daisies
  • Private Practice
  • Samantha Who?
  • Dollhouse, which will begin midseason and is a new Joss Whedon creation starring Eliza Dushku :D should be fun!

i also want to watch these shows but have absolutely no more time:

  • Reaper
  • Chuck
  • Fringe
  • Lipstick Jungle - for the Kirby Love. rar he so hot! haha
  • Boston Legal

suffice to say i have no social life. which, oddly is cool with me. at least i don't have to spend so much to have a good time. haha

I am immensely bored with my job. i have recently been restricted to an office-bound type of work because of certain happenings, and it's really annoying. on the one hand i am grateful that at least my work isn't tied up to constant pull outs at weird hours of the morning so i don't have to go to the office as early anymore, but seeing my co-workers go out on shoots make me feel a teensy bit- okay a lot- jealous. i wish it were me. i wish i could still have the privilege of going out to coverages. and I WISH I WEREN'T STUCK IN THE OFFICE where i certainly am annoying everyone with my constant whining about how bored i am.

there is so much to blog about when you don't blog regularly like you did before

and again i am faced with the same dilemma that i always face when things are starting to be too much, which is answering the question: When is it enough?

i am surviving, like i always do. but you so know i'll keep hanging on until they decide not to keep me anymore. it will be their choice, not mine, no matter how much earlier i decide i can't take any more. just like old times.

it is always the same story, i think. the same vicious cycle. of you having to prove yourself. people approving. you making mistakes, them beginning to make up stories about you to the point where you are asked to leave without having a chance to clearly explain yourself. rinse, lather and repeat. only this time, it really will be part of my resume.

some days i wish i can just live under a rock, or actually BE a rock just so i don't have to deal with messy relationships that clearly will lead to nowhere in no time.

*****
the holiday season is fast approaching, and i'm so excited :) it will be my first Christmas as a (hopefully this will still be true) gainfully employed person, and i am looking forward to all the fun i will be having (regardless of whether or not i am employed. hahaha)

*****
you know how i love watching stuff to get music to listen to? well, i watched the first two episodes of the new season of Gossip Girl, and there was this scene in the first episode where Blair gets down from the jitney and Chuck is waiting for her. cue emo music. cue my brain working on overdrive because i absolutely friggin love the song now. so if you loved the song like i did, the song is by a punk band called Motion City Soundtrack, and the track is called Fell In Love Without You, the acoustic version. i so love the refrain which goes:


Every aching wound, will cauterize and bruise
In memory of what we used to call in love
Only time will tell, if violins will swell
In memory of what we used to call in love.
it is of course, sort of a sad song, and you all know how much i love sad songs :)

Okay, back to work for me!

P.S. to everyone who watches Project Runway USA, is anyone else as annoyed by Kenley as I am? that girl is so full of herself! and as for the Philippine version, i loved how Rajo was turning bright red with rage this week cuz of Eli's superfantabulous mess of a dress. hahahahaha
