"don't replace your old friends with trash"

*Sensitivity, not innocence, is the key. So quit on being a wide-eyed kid and start feeling for others and for yourself too. 'Open Your Eyes', as what Penelope keeps on saying to Tom in Vanilla Sky, and you'll see what you've been missing and what you've always been ignoring.

* Hindi ako marunong magalit at hindi rin ako nagtatanim ng sama ng loob sa mga taong may ibang iniisip tungkol sakin. Nagulat lang siguro ko sa nalaman ko at, sa totoo lang, hindi ko naintindihan at maintindihan kung bakit naisip "niya'/'nila' sakin yun. kung kilala mo talaga ko, ang mga 'gusto' ko, siguro hindi mo iisipin yung mga bagay na yun. Siguro nga nalungkot talaga ko, syempre dahil pagkatapos nitong lahat ng panahon, kaibigan kitang maituturing.

the break that you've been waiting for and tales of a beautiful Saturday

Outbound Educators. Will travel. Will be paid...at least until i get accredited first. Although I accepted this idea because of the promised travels and the money I'll get to receive (at least when the right time comes), right now an all new purpose surfaced. Maybe some priorities need to be set first before diving in and sometimes, this realizations come in way, way too late. But there's nothing worth regretting for what I've put myself into. I knew I'll gain something from this experience, besides the financial gain of course. There's more to that, really. Guess I'm on my way to conquering the darn stage fright. Ha! Wait around 2 months more and we'll see where this teaching-while-traveling will get me.

Since my day started very early (for a weekend day), i was surprised to find out that every place Juraine and I have gone to was still a total blast, if not for our aching feet and stomachs, nevertheless, it was a day full of surprises and first times again (for me!). I had my first rappeling experience at the Lakbay Kalikasan office and I have to say that even if I sucked most of the time, I really did enjoy the descend from a 25 feet tall building. Mababa lang talaga actually. It was my first time at Robinson's Pioneer, although I didn't see much aside from Garfield who was having a fan's day that time, it was still pretty OK for a 30-minute stay where-you-didn't-get-to-see-much-of-what-there's-to-see-if-there's-any. For the second time, i experienced another Powerbooks warehouse sale (i was convinced by juraine, haha!) and seeing so much books again made my head dizzy calculating how much time I've got to spend on each (of course, I'll be just borrowing this time). It was a tiring day alright, but one that was spent wisely and purposely.

By the way, the third was Max's. :)

First day graces and mishaps

Due to the heavy traffic going on, I wasn't able to attend my first class: stat 101. Oh well, so much for starting good. But it's alright now because this time I'm sure the slot is mine and only mine and I've got the ticket to present it to the instructor next meeting. haha. 2 graces and 2 mishaps concluded my day, but on to mishaps first. First, on my way going to the terrible math building, I saw an equally terrible thing happened. Somebody's hand is extending all the way to hell. Yikes. Natakot talaga ko. May nangnenenok ng bag ng may bag sa harap ko. I'm not sure if I was the only one aware but i do hope I wasn't the only one. Good thing wala naman siguro syang nakuha. I guess aware yung pinagkukuhanan nya and he's good for maintaining a poker face (like i did?!?!). So much fo security inside. Grabe talaga! Second, my teacher in Math 14 is someone (a Voltes V remainee) i already met along my unadventurous Math journey. OH NO! Yun na lang ang nasabi ko. Goodluck to me.

Sabi ko na. Kaya pala ko duda sa isang grace ko ngayon. Mabilis ko kasing nakuha, ika nga "No sweat". Nagprerog ako ng PanPil 19 kay Sir Ocampo at himalang tinanggap nya naman ako ng walang masyadong tanung-tanong. Kaya pala. Naalala ko tuloy yung sinabi ng tatay ni Robert langdon sa kanya sa Angel and Demons (not in its exact words really) "if you figured out something easily without much difficulty, something's wrong" or something like that. Basta yun ang idea. hay. Anyway, grace are grace you've got to embrace. Naks, ryhmed! Second grace: finally napanood ko na din ang Da Vinci Code (na uber sa boring!). Kimi's treat. Kung hindi mo nabasa ang libro, nyak, I won't be surprised if anybody else fell asleep while watching it. Madaming binago. Ayoko na ring mag-delve into it. Tama na ang mga pag-aanalyze namin ni kimimay. I say, the book was still the greatest version. Humor Time: Kimi overheard somebody beside her (looking yuppie and all) pronounced the Da Vinci as "Da Vinsi". All hands down. Amen.

Second Time Around


Yep. Another one again. This time, it's an anniversary sale, with much lower discounts on books. But powerbooks is still powerbooks. Go ahead, catch some books!
