2014 Power Word(s) : Redirecting Creativity

I finally chose one after writing a blog in AFF 
THIS IS IT!!! <3

Last year my Power Word was BALANCE. I was able to live up to it for about 80%. 
I am hoping this year, I can live up to my Power Word(s) up to at least 90%. 
In AFF, T.O.P. (Tagalog Online Pocketbook), at work and in LIFE. 

Because resolutions are just too constricting. And we always break them anyway.

PICK a GOAL or PICK something you want your WHOLE year to be about. And use it as you Power Word. 
Then plaster it all over your wall, your mobile wallpaper, your workstation and make it the first thing you see every morning. Think of ways to achieve it.

Your Power Word must be something that is going to help you in that year and also part of how you want your life to be like as a whole. Because what is the point of having a goal and not achieving it.

The wonderful thing about not having a list of things to do like a New Year resolution list, is that you can MAKE mistakes and SKIP some steps along the way. It frees you from having to tick things off from a mental list or an actual list. 
So what's your POWER WORD for 2014?


"As you all can see the ball has stopped half way to its porch. It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the New Year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or close ourself down for fear of getting hurt. Cause that's what New Year's is all about, getting another chance. The chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight, but all year long. Thank you." -- Claire Morgan, New Year's Eve


Where ever you may choose to travel, may it be to overcome your fears and visit paradise. You need people who love you for you to make your fears the thing of the past and open you to new adventures. Despite invisible bacons and altophobia.  

Finding sisters is always a fabulous thing!

12/31/2013 : Just a few hours is not enough but years of friendship keep the gap small Once a C.A.T.s always a C.A.T.s

2014 :Less Go!~~~

Still my True Love

Troll or not, Still YG. <3

Officially Missing You : Cheesy post ahead

I miss you guys.
My wall may explode from all the kpop that RoK has to offer and I might seem to be only reading and commenting on my new dongsaengs and peeps' walls. F.U. Facebook for doing it like this. (I promise to try to make a group for my contacts with just you guys and flood your walls with likes and notifs again. Soon as I have a smartphone I will attack your IG and twitter as well. *throws aegyo kisses*)

But just because I might be a little crazed and spazzing all over the place doesn't mean I don't miss you guys.
Because you are a part of who I am and you know who you are. If you are reading this know this.

1. I am happy that I met you when I was still a stupid, lazy and arrogant person. You made me believe in myself and that I am good at something and that I should always pursue what my heart wants me to do.

2. I am grateful that even if I am the stupid, lazy and arrogant person that I was before (still kind of am) that you put up with all my crazy and let me show you that although I am loud (all the time) that there are things I could never say like, "I am sorry I hurt you." or "Thanks for loving me even if you don't understand me all the time."

3. Just because I am not available to hang out doesn't make me not miss you all the time.
You know the feeling when you hear something or see something and you lean to a direction as if to say something to someone that you have with you for so long that it becomes a knee jerk reaction to tell them what you think of something or a situation and you know they would probably be the only people to get it? I get that a lot. It makes me lonely at times. But it also makes me feel like I am never alone. (I know I am weird, but you get it right?)

4. I don't know how valuable being bullied by you guys can be. Until I live in a quite space and I try to think of what this person would say when I say something really stupid.

5. I think I learn a little bit about being more responsible from you guys. I always sit in a safe place and wonder about things that I want to do but I never get around to doing it. But being fed stories about your guys having more balls to juggle (no pun intended) makes me realize that if I am friends with these really awesome people, why the fuck am I not doing something with my life that requires more...(que dramatic sfx music) responsibilities?

Which gets me to #6

6. I want to thank you for telling to want more. To do more and be more. I did try to do more but I made a mistake of taking myself where I should have been in the first place and going somewhere I was not mean to go. But detours and mistakes tend to just help you acquire more realizations so that by the time you get to where you need to go (which at some times is exactly where you were in the first place) you know that this is it. This is where you should be and this is what you are supposed to be doing.

7. You are the best gifts the universe, Santa and Maria Makiling ever gave me. Enough said.

So yeah.

8. I miss you guys, gals, geys.

9. I wish that you would be comfy in your lovelives and acquire hubbies soon and gimme pamangkins.

10. See you next year. December is WAY TOO PACKED for me to go anywhere. Literally all my weekends are booked like...three months ago. *throws hearts* *throws kisses*

2013 was EPIK. I wonder what 2014 would be like? Hectic for sure. But happy, I hope.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2014 in advance!!!

Divide and Conquer

If you are like me who works best alone. You must be beside your mind. ^.^

I have heard about teamwork and delegating work as good strategies to get a project done in record time. But I can honestly say, and my old bosses can vouch for this, that I work best alone. But this recent project has shown me that there is indeed strength in numbers and that my limitations can be augmented by the strength of others.

I know, it's pretty late for me to realize this when I have been thrust into group work since grade school. But I have always been the kind who wanted to do things my way and others could just follow me or get out of the way. I pretend to take people's ideas in but in reality I am just checking if they are thinking along the lines of what I was already planning to do.

This frustrates a lot of people. But I also have a pet peeve that matches this personality tick that I have. It's people who just complain but never do anything or suggest anything productive. And I am glad to say, I don't have anyone in this project who is like that. There are still those who do things their own way but somehow it works. And they are able to make great contributions to what needs to be done.

Having people you like work on something you would rather be doing than wasting your life away looking at the work clock and doing a Nakamura to make it go faster, feels great. Despite the need to pump myself with caffeine and chocolates to rush my creative juices, I find that there is a kind of peace in this kind of existence.

I wake up (or try to) as early as I can to get to work (as early as I can). [Yes, I know. I surprise myself as well.] And endure the commute (which as you know I really hate doing since it's a torture on my nose and feet as well as a challenge to my claustrophobic tendencies to be on the subway) to get to where my new office is. Just so I can do something that I would otherwise not have seen myself doing in...ever. And taking responsibilities like the one I am tasked to do now never cross my mind in the last three years since E-lamp. I didn't want to because I felt like my skill set didn't match anything they wanted me to do. Or I didn't want to do it because I felt like I would just be overexerting myself for someone else's profit. I was told that this year the best thing to do is to work on a project with friends. And that is exactly what I am doing right now. I am working on something creative and useful and I am among new and old friends.

So what if I am a bit tired and on a coffee buzz? I am sure I can handle it. And I don't catch myself daydreaming anymore or thinking that I am somewhere else doing something other than what I am supposed to do.

And I know there aren't a lot of people who can say that about what they do to pay their bills. But I can. Bohemian or not. I am glad I went back. And I am staying for as long as possible.


Sometimes the greed that is found in the world astounds me. And it irks me when I am the one who gets caught up in the wake of it. Like a fisherman in a freaking storm surge. I expect that I am going to need a new brain after all this is done. T_T

Overcoming Kryptonite

People know my kryptonite is deadlines. This is why I can't finish Nanowrimo though I make a play for it every year. This is why I can't get published. (That and because I am such a lazy writer, the more you pressure me to write, the lazier I get.)

But I think working on the research and development team would help me to get things going. I always write on a whim and had forgotten the training I got when I was in high school and college. Though even then I have always been a photo-finisher kind of student. I was amongst those who ran up the stairs of the department building that houses the faculty just so I can make it to the deadline.

So I think having to work on something under extreme time pressure would help me train how to manage my time better. And asking people to meet their deadline does make me feel embarrassed when I sense that I am working a lot slower than other members of my team.

I know that I can complain about it but what I just need to do is deliver. And if my OCD about this would kick in, we would never get anything done. It's interesting to learn my weaknesses too. I suck at making activities. I can fart out a dialogue like I just ate a whole basket of kamote but when I face the bold ACTIVITY word on my word document I am stumped. This part takes me the longest to finish. So I tried making the activity part first just to make sure it's out of the way once I get the dialogue going. But sometimes even that takes too long.

Don't misunderstand. I am not complaining at all. This is actually a lot of fun. #goodkindastress kind of stuff make me feel both crazy (because there is so much to do) and fulfilled that I am actually able to use my writing skills for something worthwhile and work-related. It seems daunting and there are a lot of things that I need to read up on, especially new teaching methods. (I suddenly envy friends who go to teaching seminars) I know that there are limitations to the methods that we can use online and there might not be enough time to uptrain our teachers to the new methods. But it wouldn't hurt to improve on an existing idea.

I think if I was in a real faculty room, I would be that half-crazed over-worked teacher who has her toes in every activity in school. And that doesn't sit well with me. My lazy nature abhors overexertion except if I am truly passionate about something.

So yeah. I am having fun stressing myself out over English activities and dialogues. #mylifesoboring But for the first time this year. I actually know what the heck I am doing. So it's all good.

Good Kind of Stress

I think I have said this before but I will say it again. If you like what you do it's not work. I am sure some people agree with me on this. I am currently working on something that makes me want to pull all my hair out. BUT I am having fun with it. For once my being a writer actually helps me out at work. I just know that I am not a big fan of deadlines. But when it's work-related, there is always a need to work on someone else's time. Ergo, deadlines must be followed. Otherwise, you're dead in the metaphorical sense of the word. (I hope!)

I was told that the current genre I am on is a dead-end and that I have to focus my creative juices on something else. I think this is it. I hope it is. Because if it is then I am up for another reading. (Since everything has already happened. Now that I think about it, it's pretty cool. So A, if you are reading this, how and when can I get another reading?)

I need to go to work earlier tomorrow so I can get more things done. I can't for the life of me, write serious stuff at home. That and I do not have internet connection at my place which I need for all the Googling that my brain requires nowadays. (What happened to those good ol' days when I had to reach for an encyclopedia to get information, huh? Gone, I tell you!)

But all in all I am having crazy stressful FUN doing what I am currently doing. I just wish for more time to develop what needs to be made. Because I can't get my OCD to kick in since there is not enough time to get things done. Surely in the future we can "revise" or "update" what we will come up with. And it's all a matter of re-sending the data to the people who would be using it.

There are a lot of things that needs to be done. I need to learn how to do a lot of things. And I hope the result would not be too ordinary.

Write. Read. Revise.

I can actually smell blood inside my nose. It's a good indication that my brain is overheating. I can come up with ideas for scenarios but I can't write coherently right now. Anything that would be written from here on out will be garbage. So I just need to rest and wake up tomorrow so I can make the rest of it.

Friday is after all just a few hours or so away. *nail bite*

Of Liam and Full Homes

He is beautiful. Even more so than the photos that were posted on our group. And he is blessed and strong. I am happy to be a future kumpil ninang. ^.^ I just wish we were all there to see him.

My friend Eka said to me something that made my being an OCD friend seem worth it. Something referring to the fact that we were all there during the important times in her life.

That there is friendship, kiddos. We don't have to be tied together at the waist. But we just need to be THERE when it matters. Because that is also how FAMILY works where I come from.

With all the things happening over at my parent's house, I just want to be able to learn how to close my eyes and see what is happening over there all the time.

But no, I will not survive living at home. It's just that my parents made us too self-sufficient in the outside but in our core we are drawn home still to be able to settle in our hometown. But until then, I would have to wait for my mom to tell me what is going on. I know she's tired. But I am just glad that her kids don't really give her that much grief. Though I am sure she would nag us for grandchildren until one of us actually breaks under the pressure and gives her one.

Our home is back to the way it was. I suddenly remember my PEBA blog entry in 2010. My Mom's Quasi-Orphanage. My siblings are used to our house being a full house, because a full house however crowded is a source of healing and love. And the center of that is our parents.

My mother is a believer that when one does good things without asking for a reward, God provides. My parents are not just regular parents to me. And I am honestly scared that someday I would be tasked to follow in their "work" in the family. Because I am a naturally selfish person but I am gullible too. I don't want to have to turn away people or have to help someone because they have nowhere to turn to. I just have rare moments of goodness. The rest of the time I just DGAF. So yeah. There are still much to learn from my mother.

My power word this year is Balance. At this point, I think I have found it but only a little bit. There is more to do next year. So I am thinking what is my power word for next year? Maybe it should be SAVE. What do you think? Or maybe it should be LOVE? Kekeke. Or Sixty-Five (pertaining to my ideal weight). Yeah, I think it should be Sixty-Five. ^.^

Sixty-Five it is then.

NaNoWriMo failure circa 2013

I didn't get to finish this year yet again. T_T Poor me.
Why is it that there are so many things that happen in November that I never get to finish my Nanowrimo? *says the lazy person that lives in my head*

So now  I will be reverting all the names back to their celebrity version so I would not have to worry about the spelling. Oh. And now I can write with no pressure. And I can edit.

I think I have word constipation since when I have a deadline I just can't finish it. It's like my brain is rebelling against it. T_T Darn it.

Oh well, there is always next year. And I have so many story ideas I have yet to get into so I would not run out of things to write. ^.^

Congratulations to everyone who hit the 50k word mark. Banzai!~ I hope to join you someday.

To check out the story I was supposed to finished CLICK HERE. Warning, it's Yaoi.

Open this website : http://www.quizbox.com/personality/test82.aspx

MY OLD results :

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education

You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.

The right job for you:

You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

Rereading The blog past : My Korean Boyfriend

Rereading The blog past : My Korean Boyfriend

Backtracking a blog that I read for a while years back when I was in the online English industry was accidental. I was googling for "Korean socks store near an mrt " and I got into the link for an article about CNA. Then a picture of Krimmy
reminded me of a blog that I loved reading in 2010. So I searched for it and am now reading from the first article *once again* since I forgot about it already. And then I read the entry that got me hooked. 

So to all the kdrama peeps and kculturewhores who don't know My Sassy Girl, I revoke your writes to spazz right now. I mean...seriously what the heck is wrong with you. Your education is lacking. Fufufu.

I have stopped looking for my Gyun-woo but it still cute to read up about it.

I am looking forward to reading more about what happened to Krimmy. ^.^ (I am so forgetful it's not even funny. T_T)

I plan to buy some cute stuff from their place for Christmas. I already got a couple of TOP socks (MINE!) from GDYB store from the Knation4 booths, as well as a Bom, Heartbreaker GD and Tao socks (MINE!) Yes, I wanna buy socks for people this Christmas. And other cute things. ^.^ Forgive me. ^.^

November 28, 2013 update
As of writing this update I am on their archives for November 2011. T_T I need to reach the current posts. Then start backreading FunnySexy.ph which is Kring's blog. Fudge off. I will add (probably already did) them on my FB and check out stuff there too. T_T But for now reading the blog for refresher on stuff. Also will be reading Ask A Korean and other blogs that would help out at work. Shooting all these blogs to my fellow trainee Pete who knows squat about Koryans before he got to work in Power One. So yeah. I is doing something work related, boom. ^.^

Student Mail is Sarang

Student mail is pure sarang

I used to have a few other emails that I get from students who tell me that they have graduated and they make it a point to tell me that they still remember me. There are some student who I am in touch with via FB and at times they would leave a comment or I would drop a line on their walls. ^.^ But those are rare.

I am glad to hear from Lucy. ^.^ I remember enjoying talking to her and her brother. ^.^ Thought it's been a while and I can't remember their faces. T_T But I am sure their screencap is in my hard disk somewhere. ^.^

Do you have any memorable teachers? I do, too. ^.^

My student Teddy ^,^

Teacher Moments: Scissors

T: What does she have?
Student : Scissors.
T: No, you should say she has a scissor.
Me : o.0 *mutters* pair of scissors.
*a little later*
T: He has a pair of scissors.
Me: *headache disappears* Thank God...

A pair of  grammar rules, please read.

T: Teacher is scissors, you are paper. Teacher wins.

Disclaimer: I hate my ears. They tend to hear so many things. Some things are hard to unhear. ^.^ If you are a grammar nazi you would know that this is just a compulsion and not in any way me wanting to say something mean about someone. ^.^

Kpop, First Week & FanNoona Duties

As more balls are thrown it to juggle, I would find that organizing things to my need would come in handy. I think that there would have to be a lot that I would have to organize in my new work station to help me get things running smoothly. There are more students added to my roster and I would have to deal with new people again. *rubs hands in excitement*

This week had passed by without me noticing the days. The hours fly when you are not constantly waiting for the proverbial school bell to go off. I am looking forward to learning how to handle my class list on Monday.

I will be going all Kpop crazy during the weekend. I would have to check out 2ne1's new video and all news that a blackjack must know. And I would have to check up on who won at MAMA. *Let it be my Goddesses* and check out their comeback stage. *getting too giddy as I type this*

And of course, I have to do my FangirlNoona duties and upload the KNation4 pictures and the videos that accompany them. God, help my wifi. If I can, I might check out my dongsaengs at Star Mall but I am not sure yet. Depends on whether I can finish uploading or not. *cries when she remembers that some pictures were corrupted = read as white out = when she cropped them at her sister's computer = I swear her pc is an anti-kpop beotch. I lost all of my Mr Kface Idol aka Riri Pics and several others. God I hope they were not too special. If they were I ask my co-fangirls forgiveness for trying to crop them...TT_TT

Anyway. I have to go to a group hang after work. With alcohol. How very keryan of us. ^.^


Good luck to my liver. Kidding. I probably would keep it on a low alcohol night since I would be traveling with to Batangas after. ^.^

Here's to my first week officially back, kampai!~

How to Teach Words = K.I.S.S. it

Keep It Short and Simple.

This is something that we loose touch on because of all the things we tend to complicate. I personally have a little bit of a problem doing this. And it's a challenge that I am looking forward to re-learning. Then I had a conversation today that reminded me of the root of the issue.

She tested me "How would you teach the word ATTENTION to a kid?" I said "Look at me. Focus on me." She pretended to be a beginner student so she asked, "What is FOCUS?" I was stumped.


I get this a lot from my new kid. And she is eleven. We got caught up with the words Flattery, praise and compliments. I told her "It's to say something nice to someone."

The tester told me the golden rule about teaching children. "There are only a few words that they know." So to teach Attention I can say "Look at me, Focus on me." And to teach focus, I can say "ONLY ME" to teach what focus means. But obviously, I need to just go straight to "Look at me. Only me." to teach attention.

Learning to repeat yourself is something vital in what we do as teachers for beginners. Because if we loose patience, then the child would have more questions than learnings.

It applies to adult learners as well. Since there are also adult learners who are in a beginner or middle level who sign up to learn English online. They are just a little bit more shy to ask about the meaning of some words. But asking them if they have any questions or if there are any words they need clarifications on would help. So allotting time for these kind of questions are necessary in a class.

Never assume that the student would get it all at once. Keep explanations simple. Use common words, if at all possible, use the words they already learned in a previous class. As their teacher, you know what level of words you can use for explaining things to them. Never get tired of answering questions and be aware of the time that it takes you to answer said questions. Answer as soon as they ask and do so in a precise manner. Do not let your explanation or definition lead to more questions. Say it in a clear voice. Be confident of what you know. The student would have a feeling of doubt if you sound unsure of your answer to them. You are supposed to be the expert. Saying something that you are not sure of might lead to a student getting even more confused.

In these cases, Google and other online tools would come in handy to help support your stock knowledge. Do not say something that you are not sure of because your student might end up learning the wrong thing. Or worse, have an odd understanding of a word and end up using it in a conversation and get embarrassed. That would not sit well with them. Since studying with you is actually the sole chance they have to get it right and practice it so that when they need it in a real life situation they would not make such obvious mistakes.

A more complex understanding of something always starts with small comprehensible definitions.
So when defining things, be a dear and K.I.S.S. it.

Hi, I'm Teacher Sam!

So I am back to my bohemian life. I tried the job that has a great HMO and better pay. But all I got from it is GERD and whole lot of maladies. And a few great friends to keep for life. You know who you are. NO need to name drop.

But this is my second day of having classes and guess what? My stress level is about 2% and it's because I only have three students. It's bound to get busy in the next few days and months but I am just glad to be doing something I know I am great at. And reports and tech issues aside, I am loving it. I am sure I will eat those words on hectic days but I am glad to be back.

And as long as this industry is around, I plan to stay.

I am currently back to the night shift and have to travel to Ortigas by jeep, MRT and foot just to get to work on time but I wouldn't exchange it for dragging my feet to work every day.

It's challenging to keep tabs on students' schedule and progress. And talking to someone who is trying to ask you what PEACE means even if you already said it means "No fighting" can be a challenge. But it's more like riding a bicycle and you never really unlearn in.

I miss my old students and their antics. Most of them are on my Facebook now and would probably see this. And I am hoping that I can re-learn how to teach kids and teens again. As for adults, that was always easier.

The challenge is time management once there are one class after the other. And that my current keyboard is like an old Nokia phone, the kind that requires me to press it heavily since the keys are a bit hard.

There are a lot of things to look forward to. And improvements to help with but I am glad to be back.

Sometimes I think, why did I ever leave?



It's nothing compared to waking up and saying, "Yey, work!"

I'm weird. I know.

Note to self : Welcome back, Sam. ^^

RINGA LINGA LATE but still waiting

I was pissed because I thought I would get to see it before I sleep. T_T Then I thought this was them trolling us again. *YG and YB share that hobby, you would know this because YB loves to post troll posts on his IG* *such a cutie pie he is. So when I checked the BB YT channel and found no #RingaLinga video I was pissed. 

Then I read at a friend's wall that it was at 12pm *That would be noon right?* 
Then I saw that fracking Allkpop article (because you know how this site is they only have a speedy article for YG is it's bad news or scandals - showing their SM color much, b*pls) and found out YB apologized for the delay. THE FUN part about that article is it contained to other information regarding WHEN (I needed the time) when the song would be released. 

Good thing I have spazzmates and I found the time and the translation *which was not from Bing because seriously Bing you have a retarded translation system even worse than google translate (facepalm)* 

And it melted me " If you were staying up, hurry and go to bed..! I'll find you in your dreams" is so YB. My original bias. Such a cutie. 

And because we as VIPs are a patient (only for YG related things) bunch we figured we waited this long we might as well go on and wait some more. 

So now I am off to bed and if YB is late in my dreams I will surely rape him. Rin galing galing.

How to report posers

I am not an fb expert so I still don't know why FB isn't taking this fanpage down.
Is it because it seems to contain the same stuff as the REAL person? Ugh. It's irritating

But this is what I did.

1. click the screw icon and choose Report/Block this person

2. Choose submit a report >> Report (name of account)'s account

3A. If you are an added friend of the REAL person on their facebook account you NEED TO LINK it

MAKE SURE THAT IT SHOWS that the account is tagged on this report.

3B. If you are not an added friend this is what you can try

*This is all that I can do since I am not an added friend of the person in the example*
*ignore the error juseyo*

4. Then submit the report

But ultimately what needs to be done is for the real person to report it directly

You can report fanpages too. But I think the best way to block a fanpage would be to source out the facebook where it's coming from. 

These are her only fb accounts

My Reina

What I love about her would not fit in a blog.

She was the adventure that I never thought I would have in UPLB. And it's funny since she started a group of anti-fans with a group of other people who now, a decade or so later are still my friends, nay, my soul mates.

Simply she is our glue. When she is here, we gravitate towards her. She is the Queen to say it plainly, and we all know that what the Queen wants, must be given.

She took our advice and took some time to step out of her comfort zone for a while. To try to be single for a little bit. I am happy to find that she found a part of who she lost after sharing so much of herself with others who may or may not have taken too big a chunk and left her worse for wear.

I love her. So much that the word is beyond that of a sister. She is family. I love her humility at the face of elders but I love her fashionable take on life. I admire her for the many things that she can do, cooking one of the many talents I am never going to learn let alone master. Her creativity flows from her mouth, spills into her wardrobe and lands at the tip of her fingers tapping away at keys on a keyboard. It radiates from her photos and amazes you in her reinaisms.

We are 28, me soon to be more than that. And I wish for her a lot of things. But as always I wish for her LOVE. More of it to keep her from feeling cold and more of it to balance her heart.

I will always be a fan of whatever wild idea she would drag me to do. I think if I didn't meet her and her mom during registration and I didn't have her in my life, college would have been dull, I would have less friends and people will still hate my arrogant loud guts. *Some still do but I don't give a rodent's hindparts*

For all the things that make you unique
For all the things that we love about you and makes you tick
For all the things that you wish to have
For all the love that we hope for you 
For all the adventures you have yet to do
For all the times we had, may they never fade
For all the tears and laughter we shared
For all these things and more, I thank you 
For all the sparkles and shadows in you, I cherish it. 
On this day, I thank the Lord. 
For all that is you.

"Confessions" at Eiga Sai 2013

No spoilers here.

Just kidding.

I loved this movie. But I told myself I would not watch this. But the guys from behind me had seen it on their laptops and said to each other "I can't wait to see it in the big screen. (in the vernacular) It would never stop surprising you." I didn't know if they were trying to entice me or piss me off with the spoilers.

I love this film. I kept saying that during the entire movie. I have this sinister snicker that I do when I love a movie to the bones. I know this movie is something I want to show my revenge-loving friends.

This is my revenge. A living hell.

*stops self from saying more*

I just love it.

Funny serendipitous moment at the Eiga Sai, Mica, who was the tomodachi of my kohai TJ in UPLB who got me into this whole Eiga Sai bit was there. I knew an authentic otaku when I saw one.

You won't see him here because I didn't have my camera. But he was wearing a yellow shirt and from the way he walked I knew it was him. ^.^ I wish that the girl next to me would move and I would have gotten that seat for him. But then he would have hated me since I talk during movies.
The kid to my left actually left in the middle of the movie. I dunno if I pissed him off because I was noisy or if he got scared of the movie or if it was near his dorm curfew, I didn't care. I realized, I really hate sitting all the way in the back because I could see everyone's heads and it distracts me during the movie. And those bakeru freaks who have their phone on during the movie make it on my list of people to kill if I ever become a dictator.

I swear to all that is good and holy, those ugh people are just so...beyond reformation. I wish I bought popcorn though I hate eating in the cinema unless it's tutti frutti flavored. My softball training would have come in freaking handy I swear.

Going back to the movie, I didn't realize it would be so enjoyable. One, because I hate movies that can give me nightmares. And I hate blood. But this is a Japanese film festival. There was bound to be something bloody and psych-thriller. If the lights were on, you would've seen me wince so many times during that movie, then smile my sinister "I want to do that too" smile and my all-knowing smug look of awe that said "I knew it!" Still I love movies that although my writer brain can predict can still surprise me in small pockets of "all you can say is shit" moments.

IF you are not a wuss, watch this movie.

I dare you to not think of all the people who you want revenge on. I bet you won't be able to.

PICS of my day. Sorry they suck I didn't get to bring a camera since I flew from work to get there. <3

DARE TO TELL Cherry Bottom your Secrets!

Can you keep a secret?

Me. I can't. T_T

I only have one slot for a single secret at any given time. Every thing else is a BLURT waiting to happen. 

That is my secret. But then again it's more like a disclaimer and part of the manual in how to be my friend. Oh the blurt moments are endless. 
TO MY FRIENDS, thanks for not demoting me to a stranger status. I love you all.

I found this fanpage that reminded me of that blog from before that had those graphics and the secrets of people. I dunno what happened to the blog but I hope I can find it again. In the spirit of things, here is one that I loved from Cherry Bottom's fanpage. *when I went to the IG account I realized it's ONE AND THE SAME. Daretotell is LOVE

This reminded me of my call center days. 

This made me miss my dad. He's alive and in Batangas. So I am luckier than this girl. 

I am currently flooding my wall on facebook with this. <3

So check out that page here
