Last Sunday while I was browsing some books in a bookstore, some random guy came out of nowhere asked me about my opinion on what's the best stuff to give to a down friend. Naman. Syempre nagulat ako. At ang naisagot ko na lang ay "what do you mean by down?" I know it sounded lame or certified bobo but it was all I could manage to say. And he said yaddah yaddah, blah, blah, blah. I don't really want to be rude kaya ayun sinasagot ko naman ng matino yung mga tanong nya. Okay lang daw ba na book ang ibigay nya and if book nga what type naman daw. E nung mga panahong yun ang naisip ko agad ay chicklit. And I guess hindi pa nga nya ko naintindihan kasi iniba nya yung usapan. How about Harry Potter daw? Sabi ko okay lang din naman. Tsaka nya ko tinanong ngayon kung mahilig daw akong magbasa na nasagot ko na lang ng simpleng "medyo". My goodness. Nagulat ako sa sinagot nya ha. Sabi nya "wala sa itsura mo ang isang bookworm ah". Duh. Kelan pa nadaan sa itsura ang pagiging bookish. Nerdy glasses are so yesterday. Hanggang sa maiba na naman ang usapan dahil tinanong na ko kung ano ba ang course ko. Pambihira. Nung sinabi kong Geography sabi nya ay kakaiba daw yun. Mahirap daw ba yun kesa sa Sociology? hay. I hate it when some people pretend that they know something about some things when in fact they don't actually have a clue of what they're talking about. Susme. Hindi naman mahirap aminin na wala kang alam paminsan-minsan. Ako madalas akong ganun hehe. Medyo marami pa syang sinabi bago nya finally itinanong na medyo hindi ata common yung course na yun. So saan bang school ko kinuha yun. Nung narinig nya yung sagot ko sabi nya "so, matalino ka pala?" na sinagot ko nang isang malaking "Ngek" na sinagot naman nya ng "ang yabang naman". O kamon. Seriously?!Ako na nga na nagbigay ng oras para kausapin sya kahit medyo creepy paminsan-minsan yung mga sinasagot nya, ako na nagmamagandang-loob lang naman. It was the most uncomfortable 20 minutes of my life.

Kung hindi fictional characters ang mga natitipuhan ko (more of patay na patay actually) e mga high-end-at-di-mareach na mga tao naman yung iba. syet. nakakadepressed lang.
Marcus Flutie, kelan ba kita makikilala? kailangan ko bang bumalik sa pagka-hayskul para lang ma-meet ka? Jess Mariano. My bad-ass-punk-bookworm-kind-of-guy. Wala ka bang real counterpart in flesh? Adam Rove. Dahil sappy ka ay lurve kita. Pacey Witter. Hands down ikaw pa rin ang paborito kong Dawson's Creek character. Patrick MArtin Stump. boses mo lang e naiiyak na ko at di pa rin ako maka-get-over sa'yo bwiset. Shia. wala nakong masabi kasi 14 years old pa lang tayo ay magkakilala na tayo.
I am so hopeless. Honestly.

How 1963. Waaahhh. Boring. Super. Sayang naman ng budget na nilaan dito hehe. Pero malamang naman nung panahon nila e box office of the year to. Hooboy.
Honestly, na-bored ako dito pero in fairness sa ending. I liked it. At least makatotohanan. Mas lalo ko lang di magugustuhan kung in the end ay nagkatuluyan pa rin sina Genevieve at Guy.
Ang ganda ganda ni Clara Lago (as Carol) dito. At akalain mong may prediction akong tumama. Tomiche died waaaahh!!! Think My Girl plot sa kanilang puppy love story.
Women rocked here! football and romance, whatta combi. nice, nice film. from the same country that brought us One Way Ticket to Mombasa (my fave film last year).

*At eto pa. After Radiohead announced that they'll be giving away their new album (more of actually free download lang naman pero kasi di ba...) Oasis and Jamiroquai followed suit. Pero etong usapang libreng ito ay hindi naman talaga daw libre. 45 pence para sa Radiohead downloads and 99 pence for Oasis' song "Lord Don't Slow Me Down". But whatever. I think this is big for them there Brits. Ah. My bestest favorite badass rock band and my 2nd favoritest Brit Rock Band are lurve.
*Nalaman ko lang kanina (finally after 2 0r 3 years is it?) ang buong pangalan ni Nate (of One Tree Hill). Nathan Royal Scott. Naks. How royal it is naman. But still, Lucas Eugene Scott, is my favorite. just because he's sappy. and he reads lotsa lotsa books. and he writes. Can't wait for OTH's season 5 premiere on January!
* Lastly. Kahit paulit-ulit ko pang panoorin ang Don't Matter/Ignition cover ng FOB sa youtube ay hindi ako nagsasawang panoorin (at pakinggan) si Patrick Martin Stump(h). OH jeez. Isa pa syang lurve. And oh, Pete's starting to grow on me too. Medyo love ko na rin sya. Just because I saw that clip where he was holding a Ugandan baby even though he doesn't have the slightest clue on how to properly hold a baby. But that's Pete being Pete. And because he loves Patrick to death he might even kill only for him. Ahhw to the highest power. :p

You were increasingly becoming such a depressing person.
I don't know when it started but I'm quite sure that you weren't like that before I started liking you (because I wouldn't even give an effin care if you're already one). Probably those times, you too, were carving your own identity away from every person you know.
Anyway, the bottom line is now i can finally tell them why I became so indifferent towards you. I guess, that's where my fault lie. Leaving.Just.Like.That. But times have changed and as sure as it heals wounds it also rebuilds what was once thought as unthinkable.And we come out of this experience bathe in a brighter and clearer light and a little bit wiser on the side.
Thanks to this sudden rush of insight because I found out something that can propel and help me in my future decisions. I am an inch closer to recognizing myself. See, i realized that I don't want to be romantically involved with depressing people. I mean people who has a very negative and bleak perception in life. I am a happy person despite everything. It's all about perspective, dears. My life is a certified messed-up-topsy-turvy-dysfunctional of some sort and I'm quite glad that I have friends who share the same sentiments (because then you'd really know that you are not alone and not the only freak kid in town). Every imaginable case, certainly there's someone who had to go through it, whether they liked it or not, but they weren't so bad themselves. They turned out just fine. We don't have to be what our folks have become. Well, some days we have to see the good and the beauty out of the bad and the ugly.
But I'm still wondering why I'm drawn to weird people. and them too, to me. Is it because I see the good in them? i see something that's worth noticing despite their heavily guarded auras? well at least somebody said that I make them happy in a way. I mean I make them smile even if they don't want to because it's just not in their nature. I make them talk. I even make them blabber. haha. I'm glad that early on in life, I already decided that I want to be with someone who has a good sense of humor. In everything.

When Cinemanila came to UP, syempre hindi ko pinalampas ang pagkakataon na makapanood kahit na di ko man mapanood lahat ng gusto ko dahil sa trabaho. Kung dati kaya kong magbabad sa Cine Adarna pwes, nagbago na ang panahon. huhu.
Bakit ko ba pinanood ang Pisay? Hmm.Syempre dahil kay direk Aureaus Solito! The same guy who brought us Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros, where I first saw Ping (although napanood na kita syempre sa Rizal pero hindi pa ako aware nun) and look at me now, how BIG a Ping follower I am now. haha. But I'm digressing. Yun nga si direk. Cinemalaya film sya. At akala ko ay konti lang ang manonood kasi school day at medyo maaga ang screening. Big mistake. Pambihirang patis, hindi ko talaga naisip ang mga Pisay People. Ang dami nila as in supeeeeer. Wala pa naman akong ticket kasi kala ko pipila na lang ako sa window para bumili.Grabe, grabe talaga.mga 30 minutes kaming naghintay na papasukin (nakapila ngapala ko sa isang side, kasama ng mga iba pang napangakuan nung organizer, habang pinapapasok lahat ng beauty and the geeks sa theater. hehe. In fairness to them, kahit ginigyera na sila ng mga tao dahil sa tagal at kawalang kasiguruhan, nakapasok pa naman kami at thankfully nakaupo din ako, sa monoblock nga lang. dami kasi talagang tao.Nakakatuwa nandun pala yung mga cast (most of them are Goin Bulilit kids). At ang ganda ng soundtrack.Pramis!
Sa sobrang dami ng tao ay sa ibang exit na kami pinadaan para hindi na namin makasulubong ang mga papasok pa na tao for the next film, Tukso, which unfortunately I can't really watch no matter how badly I want to. huhu. But seeing Ping, Sir Pen and Bajekjek made it all okay.Well, ganun talaga ang tagahanga.
Brutal kung brutal. dark kung dark. See our very own Tondo at its best and its worst. Bow ako kay Ms. Malou Crisologo. Sayang wala si Ghe-Ghe sa UP, gusto ko din sana syang makita. Si Sir Vim Nadera, kamusta naman ang binoculars! haha.Si Papa Dom ay dumalo sa lamay.Ayus.
Pero ang best part talaga ng gabi ay nung nakita ko si Howie Severino. Gosh. Na-starstruck ako, hence the title of this entry. Sa sobrang na-overwhelm ako na nakita ko na sya sa wakas, ay napa-"hi Sir" with matching kaway ako sa kanya. And he actually smiled and waved back!!! gosh. mag-isa lang ako niyan ha. on normal days di ko ginagawa yun. sana sunod si Jay Taruc naman. Madami na kong nakitang sikat na tao pero mas drawn talaga ako towards people na hindi super sikat. Sidekicks, kontrabida, artists, underground people, journalists and the likes. mas matutuwa pa ko pag nakita ko si Soliman Cruz, Berting Labra, Paquito Diaz, Subas Herrero, Bayani Casimiro Jr.,Kuya Bodjie at Ate Siena (wrong spelling pa ata), at marami pang iba. Pero syempre inaamin ko na gusto ko ring makita sina Marky Cielo, Sid Lucero at Shia LaBeouf (which is close to impossible!). haha!
Next destination: 9th Cinemanila International Film Festival. Kahit isa man lang. Volver or The Namesake or Persepolis. malabo na tayong makasilip kay parang Quentin Tarantino. Come on! If I know reserved na lahat ng upuan sa mga higher people. tsktsk. Life.

Plus the guy was really young when he started writing books, at least that I know from staying too much in bookLOVEstores. and apparently, he too, can't wait for August 10, 2007. About time Detective James Carter and Chief Inspector Lee would be back on the big screen. Hiiyaaa!

Sometimes, there are books that pushes you farther than it should be pushing you (or at least me anyway) in a normally perfect, ordinary way. Well, this was that kind of book that really kept my interest to the limits of my, well, very limited frame of mind. I am quite sure and really believe that I was never meant for greatness nor vagueness. I am SO ordinary (although there are times that I actually feel and believe that I am extraordinary din pala haha) it's so boring. Blame it on the past.
Anyway, the book is so beautiful and nice and wonderful and life-awakening-but-not-in-a-preachy-manner (most of the times) nauubusan na ako ng pang-describe.hehe. Even in my early-20-years, I've always digged Young Adult Literature. Kasi you can never go wrong with it. I was so affected that I started mulling over my present-state-of-life again. As if I never get to do that often. Pero in a different light this time. After reading it, i desperately wanted to start a new hobby, one that's interesting it could actually take me years to accomplish it. I guess the point really is having a goal that is different than your any other goals in life. And i absolutely agree with Jeremy Fink's father's idea that we all do need a little adventure in this life. Hmm.Sana sa next life ko ay magawa ko din yun. haha.
i don't want to encourage everyone to read it because we have different views and all, what I want though, is if you ever get a chance to read it, just do. Wala pa namang namatay dahil lang sa pagbabasa ng isang sinuggest di ba? I think.
After all, it's not everyday that you give thoughts on what the meaning of life is.
Sana may magregalo nito sakin someday, somehow.
2. FALL OUT BOY is friggin coming in the Philippines!!! I will really try my best to save enough money to watch it on September 21 with Kimi. And if things still doesn't look up that much by then, I'd always have you to back me up di ba?! Haha.
3. Watch TV. Even the simple joy of watching the tube is rather getting harder and harder.
4. Reading A Mango-Shaped Space, Leap Day and soon-to-come Heaven Looks A Lot Like the Mall all by the great,great Wendy Mass. I found her in Fully Booked one lazy Sunday, read the summary, ayun, stayed 3 hours there (freezing) just to finish the book. And I later found out there's not much Wendy Mass presence in Powerbooks. Geez.
5. Watch Dokumentaryo. Syempre it's for free so why not, chocnut!
6. Mapaayos si blooey. huhuhu.

and oh, i swear i'm gonna go for a kill for anyone who's gonna divulge the happenings in Hallows. I totally agree with Chico (..and Delamar) that they would have to go to jail (at least for the time being though) for talking about it. ha!
i am so happy i was able to surf the net after a two-week hiatus.gawd. i have so many things to tell. for starters, the kid beside me is SO annoying.
and i hate Margaret "Meg" Murry. I adore Bumblebee. And looking forward to sharing a donut with our homie Homer Simpson. D'oh!

maraming salamat sa lahat ng mga kaibigan at "familial" beings who supported me all the way, without a doubt. Alam mo kung sino ka! :) gosh, i can't wait to finish my 2-year-bond with the company kasi after then, eligible na kong mag-apply as a GIS Specialist sa UN Africa. Woohoo!
Okay. So matagal pa yun, but hey, I've been dreaming for so long now I practically know too well that dreams, sometimes, do come true.

ever since day one ay sinubaybayan ko na ang PBB season 2 and i know where I'm coming from. Marami na rin naman din akong nabasang feedbacks from other viewers and followers and i can say that this reality show started to stink eversince she came back and made a loser out of Bruce Quebral. My goolay nakakataas talaga ng dugo! Magsama kayong dalawa mga hindi nag-iisip at masama ang ugali!
Kudos to you geeann for realizing the manipulative b*tch that she is and for standing for that belief. don't worry hindi lang naman pamilya mo ang nagmamahal sa'yo. you'd actually be surprised sa dami nila, sa dami namin. Kaya mo yan! You've grown so much and that's really good.
Although hindi ako bumoboto. :)
I'm really happy for everything na tinatamasa ng lahat ng mga classmates and friends ko and i was really thankful that though a lot of things may have changed, some, at least some never did. Mabuhay tayong lahat!

Ang alam ko lang ay eto: ayon sa The Corrs, "a heart can only take so much".
Pero ang kasagutan ay parang matatagpuan kay Zelda Fitzgerald, na nagsabing "Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the human heart can hold".
Hmm. Na-overwhelmed na naman siguro ko masyado sa mga pangyayari sa buhay ko, mabuti man o masama.Kung kelang nakalimutan mo nang maging masaya sa "malalaking" bagay, babatuhin ka ng maraming small things. Hindi ko na iniinda, ako pa ang binato mo.

i'm still on the hunt and wondering wide awake when to get out of this slump. it's too frustrating hearing about successful people (not that i'm bitter or what, just plain envious) and people who expects a lot from you just because you came from a reputable school. hello? does underemployment ring a bell? last week, we met a man from this job fair and he was so surprised when he found out that we (my friends and I) are still unemployed after graduation. because according to him - who comes from UP himself (with emphasis here) - landing a job never came to be a problem. ano ba kuya?? kailangan namin ng suporta hindi mockery with matching kunot-noo face from you!!! hoo boy.
anyhoo, just wanna share this. haha. guess where.

I felt for sure last night
At once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
Im still driving away
And Im sorry every day
I wont always love these selfish things
I wont always live...
It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
Im here and now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Dont give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
Amazing still it seems
Ill be 23
I wont always love what I'll never have
I wont always live in my regrets
Thanks to all the people who sent their greetings. :) 'tis not the best day ever although i've always tried to make this day fun and memorable on its own way. but hey we can't have everthing in this world. thanks for another year that i survived. to all the people who saw my every waking misery, to all of you who stood by next to me as i was having the biggest rollercoaster of my life. i couldn't give up even if i want to. so hang on still, til i get to where i really wanna be.

i wish all my friends right now were just next door so i can knock the door down, flop myself in the mutilated but comfy sofa and just cry my heart out, runny nose or not they couldn't care less. friends who would hear out all the strange news that I've been getting on my birthday freaking eve. their presence is enough to calm my infested, tired, small brain. given there's still left amidst all this madness.
i wish genies were real and actually grants three wishes to whoever sets them free (given that i was the one who set him free). all right since i'm desperate i could even settle for one.
i wish i wasn't such a dud for opening my tear ducts for like about every other hour. gawd i'm beginning to sound like an emo child. in clinics, in bookstores, in bus. tsktsk.
an ad i saw along EDSA while on the bus on my way home:
" a must have cake for May"
..jeez, you are so thoughtful Red Ribbon. i too, felt the tears that came out of nowhere.

aba. mukhang may sayad na ata ako apart from having a suspicious lung problem. kahit sino naman ata ay sasayad ang katinuan sa mga pangyayaring ganito sa ating "di-kumikitang kabuhayan".
naalala ko na naman ang matinding pagnanasa ko na sana, one day,pag naglakad ako sa may julia drive or pearl drive at sa lahat ng streets and avenues sa ortigas, ay may purpose na talaga ko. hindi bilang isang freshly grad, unemployed and bona fide reject na nagmumuni-muni sa katitingin sa mga nagtataasang building. So sana, huwag namang mangyaring naubos na ang building sa ortigas ay hindi pa rin ako natatanggap. haha!
By the way, di ko alam kung anong katopakan ginawa ko pero nag-aaply ulit ako sa isang company (offshoring.com) bilang isang research writer. Pumasa naman ako malamang sa exam kasi nag-move forward naman ako sa initial interview (or is it just their way?!). at sa monday nga i have to come back for the writer's research exam. wooo. i hope to pass it because this is something i think, is the closest i can get to my old passion: writing. haha! as if. i'm keeping my fingers crossed then.
and later i'm off to watch a gallery opening for the first solo exhibit of my friend's mom. yey! i'm so excited. it's not everyday i get to be invited in functions such as this. magpapaka-demure at feeling may class ako mamya. haha!
oh. and how time flies. 'tis coming ever so close. all i really want for that day is an honest job and 500 peso-reservation fee for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (hummy dapat ikaw na lang magbigay sakin neto e, kaso alam ko kuripot ka tsaka Machiavelli nga pala ibibigay mo sakin)! Yay!
So in case i sound, look or feel like a lost or troubled or supergiddy gal, just blame it on the bad case feeling of being laid off. Whut?!
Wednesday, May 02, 2007
the best part of that day? going home with a bunch of new friends. we really look silly walking all the way from san miguel avenue to Megamall to take the bus. but it was a good kind of silliness.
Hooray for me on my first day!

by the way, i just got hired. to You be the glory.

hello corporate world. i'm on my knees. i'm begging you to please, please open your door for me. i've been knocking for quite some time now and honestly, it's becoming too tiring now. would you? could you?

I missed you Popsiekoi! So happy to see you earlier.
pasintabi kay Humpfrey Bogart sa kanyang napaka-popular na linya sa pelikulang Casablanca.
Tanggap ko nang hindi ako makakapagmartsa oo, pero honestly hindi ako masaya na hindi ko nga mararanasan yun. Hellow??!! Pero, tanggap ko na talaga. It's just one of those things that apparently I still can't have. But as I've promised to every batchmates, I'll be waiting outside the theater to give them their most deserving sampaguitas ever. NOT! Hugs will do! :)
Happy Graduation to us all!!!

As for me, I'm still not getting anywhere near I want to be. Ikot lang ng ikot..
I want my watermelon. Waah!

Hindi lang iisa ang dahilan kung bakit masayang-masaya ako na nakagraduate na nga ako (although hindi pa official). Una na siguro dun ang Finally. After n years of staying in UP (and-I- wouldn't-bother- explaining-why-it-took-me-that-long-but-if-you-want-to-i-could-tell-you-just -ask- me!) sa wakas naman ay makakasagot na ako, proudly, na "oo, graduate na ko". And I guess everybody dreamt of graduating right? I'm just one of them. Pangalawa, it only means that i am SOOO over math now. After my nth time of enlisting, sleepless nights, insane days you've caused me (and my other friends too!), praying, buying bluebooks, photocopying sample exams, cursing all my teachers and other horrible experiences, I'm so, so darn happy it all paid off even if it took me many times just to overcome you. Lastly, makakahanap na ko ng trabahong mas matino dahil may lisensya na ko for that another whole world out there. OR NOT!!!
Pero kasabay ng pagtatapos na ito nangangahulugan lamang na maraming taong dapat pasalamatan all throughout the years. Syempre hindi ko pa maibabalik sainyo ang lahat ng tulong na ibinigay nyo sakin sa ngayon pero someday, mangyayari din yun. Sa dami ng papasalamatan ko ay hindi ko na alam kung maaalala ko pa kayong lahat, kasi kahit mga taong hindi ko naman naging close talaga pero naging part kahit once ng college life ko ay kino-consider ko nang nakatulong sakin. Hayaan nyo someday ay mababayaran ko din lahat ng kabutihan ninyo!
Sa lahat ng nag-congratulate at super happy para sakin nung gabing nalaman ko na pumasa na ko sa math ko, maraming salamat sa pakikisama sa kasayahan ko. Super elated ako nun to the max: barbs, june, mon, leidz, kimi, pam, nj, em, hummy, anna, jas, mitch, izay, tita edna, tito rene, honey , jenna at mikki. Sa 2 taong kahit na hindi ko naman nasabihan pero apparently ay nakarating sa kanila ang balita: ed and glady. at sa nag-email para i-congratulate ako: jog. Maraming salamat sainyo guys!
Ang college life ko nga pala by the way ay hindi lamang resulta ng iisang tao bagkus ay collective effort ng maraming maraming taong nabulabog kong tumulong sakin over the years (nasabi ko na ata to in my previous entries). Although hindi ko alam kung san magsisimula, siguro sisimulan ko na lang sa:
*lola dearies ko
Lola Teddy at Lola Sarah. Syempre sila ang pinakaunang dahilan kung bakit nakapag-aral ako sa UP kahit ayaw ng iba kong mga kamag-anak . I'm sorry pero it was UP or nothing at all. Akalain mong determined na pala ko noon!
*We Are One
kayo ang unang pamilya ko sa UP. Grabe, kung ikekwento ko man yun, it should be a whole another story to tell. Ate Grace, Honey, Izay, Che-Che, Jog, Popsie at Rocky, ika nga ng Fall Out Boy Thanks for the Memories.
*Block N2 friends ko na sina Weng at Jan!
*UP Sorg orgmates and families ko especially batch dos mil!
* Sa lahat ng classmates ko nung high school na sobrang naging close ko nung nag-college kami, sobrang treasured yun.
*UP Explore orgmates and families! I Love UP Explore!
*Geography Department friends. Ang hirap i-categorize kasi mga naging kaibigan ko sa department ay naging orgmates ko at superfriends pa. pero nevertheless maraming salamat pam, kimi, juraine, ed, ela, sarah, mitch, jayvie, leriz, june, essie, jp, raymond, mona, eman, van, aileen, chantel,lady, dean.
*Aurora fieldmates. 2nd year anniv na natin mga tsong!
*Lahat ng maging teachers, professors, instructors ko then and now, whether pinasa nyo ko or not. Pero special thanks kina sir Mandigma, Ma'am Vallesteros, Sir Leyson, Sir Sonny Ortega, Ma'am Nantes, Ma'am Yany. At sa lahat ng mga tumanggap sakin nung nag-prerog ako sa mga klase nyo, grabe, salamat talaga.
*Kina Sered, Ma'am Abad, Mang Cris at Mang Rolly( sa pagtanggap sakin bilang SA for 2 years).
*Sa Bermillo family. Grabe supeeer talaga! For all the support: financially, emotionally and especially spiritually! Sobrang na-feel ko kung panong magkaron ng pamilya dahil sainyo. mahirap i-define kung gano ako nagpapasalamat sainyo sa lahat ng tulong na ibinigay nyo sakin pero maraming maraming salamat talaga.
*sa lahat ng mga naging groupmates ko. sa sobrang dami na nun ay hindi ko na rin kayo matandaan pero you also deserve to be thanked kasi pumasa ko sa subjet na yun kasi ka-group ko kayo. ahaha!
*sa lahat ng mga drivers ng jeep na pumayag na hindi ako magbayad at patawad naman dun sa lahat ng mga jeep na winantutri ko..:(
Maraming Maraming Salamat sainyong lahat kasi either kayo ay: tumulong sakin na magbayad ng tuition fees ko, nagpapakain sakin kapag wala akong pera (which is always!), nagpautang sakin pag wala na kong pera, nanlibre ng pamasahe, nagpakopya ng assignment, nakikinig sa mga laments ko sa math, thesis mates ko, nagbigay ng libreng bluebooks sakin, nagpahiram ng mga ballpen, mga nag-share-a-load at nagload sakin for free. madami pa pero hindi matatapos to kung iisa-isahin ko pa. So in short, nagpapasalamat ako sainyong lahat kasi naging patient kayo sa akin whether as a friend or classmate or orgmate, because of your unwavering support and belief na matatapos ko din ang lahat ng ito someday. at eto na nga yun!!
pero hindi pa dito nagtatapos ang lahat..panibagong simula lang sa isa pang mas masalimuot na mundo.
pero as of now, kampai lang muna ng kampai!!

With the release of the book jacket images, Bloomsbury also released the inside flap and back cover texts: Inside Flap:
“Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety, and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him.
In this final, seventh installment of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling unveils in spectacular fashion the answers to the many questions that have been so eagerly awaited. The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace, confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling, whose books will be read, reread and read again.”
“Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing – if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him with?”
Scholastic has also released the details of the American cover. For the fourth time (and the first since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), the cover is a wraparound. David Saylor, art director at Scholastic, describes the cover as:
“The structures around Harry show evident destruction and in the shadows behind him, we see outlines of other people. On the back cover, spidery hands are outstretched toward Harry. Only when the book is opened does one see a powerful image of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, his glowing red eyes peering out from his hood.”
Mary GrandPré, the illustrator of the US edition books, has not used a monochromic color scheme, as she did with Order of the Phoenix (blue hues) and Half-Blood Prince (green hues). Instead she has reverted back to the color schemes of the first four books.
that is why i can't answer all your questions yet with clarity..so, bear with me still. and while you're at it say a little prayer for me. :)

hindi ako nagmalaki kailanman kasi wala naman akong maipagmamalaki. So, bless my poor heart but though I am one, i am nice. I have always been and forever will be (sana Lord!). And it disheartens me that some may think that I ignore everything and everyone. NOT. (the borat way.)
Apparently, you don't know me well.
Ah basta, this is it. Wala nang balikan pa. Do or die na nga kanina. Kwentong segway lang. Akala ko nga maiiyak ako sa math kanina sa sobrang pressure at frustration pero hindi!!! Sa ibang bagay pa ko naiyak. medyo kwentong kamalasan lang talaga. Itong nakaraang linggo na kasi siguro ang pinaka-bad week ko. Bad on everything. Academically and financially wise. Naranasan mo na bang sumakay sa isang pampublikong transportasyon kung saan ay late mo na narealize na kulang ang pera mo? Ako maraming beses na (at hindi sya healthy AS IN!). At sa sobrang katulalaan ko siguro kanina ay nakalimutan kong umutang ng kahit 6.50 lang sa mga kaklase ko. Oh my gas balbas! Pang-apat na beses ko na 'to. Kung hindi ko sinasabi sa driver ang kalagayan ko ay nag-wa-wan-tu-tri ako. Oo. Inaamin ko, nakapag-wan-tu-tri na ko pero iyon lamang ay dahil sa kinakailangan talaga. As in. Bwiset. Dapat kasi hindi na ko bumili ng bluebook kanina kung puro cryptic solutions lang ilalagay ko. Hmmpp. Pero akalain mo, nung inaakala kong maglalakad na nga ko papunta sa bahay ng tinuturuan ko, lo and behold! may dos sa secret pocket ko! Talagang umurong ang luha ko. Hay. Saved by the dos! Maraming Salamat Bathala. Pasensya na kung napaka-pagano ko (pero ina-acknowledge ko lang talaga ang mga sinaunang diyos ng mga Pilipino). Hay buhay. Pagkatapos ng araw na 'to gustuhin ko mang magsaya ay di ko magawa. Ito na ang pinakamasaya kong maibibigay sa sarili ko..ang makapag-internet.
Mabalik ako ulit sa usapang pagtatapos, nakakatuwa naman kasi kahapon habang naglalakad ako pauwi (as always) galing sa pagtututor ay andami kong nakakasalubong na mga newly grad kiddos. Actually highschool na sila pero wala lang, i guess i feel so ancient nowadays. As usual, nahihipo ang damdamin ko tuwing nakakakita ako ng kumpletong pamilya. O kahit na nanay o tatay lang. Buti pa sila. Narealize ko na isa rin pala yun sa mga dahilan kung bakit hindi ako magmamartsa (KUNG gagradweyt man ako ngayon!). Ang college life ko ay hindi resulta ng iisang tao o pamilya lang. Ito ay collective effort. Kung pwede nga lang lahat silang tumulong sakin ay may representative, gagawin ko. pero sadyang may diskriminasyon talaga sa mundo. Hindi kasi naiisip ng mga graduating committees (at siguro ng karamihan na rin) na hindi lahat ng tao ay may buong pamilya. Paano na lang ang mga tulad namin? Walang tatay, walang nanay, walang kamag-anak at kung anu-ano pa? Naisip man lang ba nila 'to nung mga panahong pinagdesisyunan nila na 3 ticket per graduate lang ang ire-release nila? paano kung malaking pamilya naman kayo at gusto mo sila lahat makasama? pano kung wala at all? Ah. Tama na. Nasabi ko na 'to dati pa. kaya nga ba hate na hate ko ang Values Education nung hayskul e! Ni mag-fill up ng biodata ayoko!
Pansin ko parang sabog ata thoughts ko ngayon. Pero yun lang naman ang gusto kong sabihin sa ngayon. Wait! meron pa pala! Gusto ko ng ice cream at lobo. At radyo or anything na lilikha ng musika sa tenga ko. Para naman magkabuhay ang life na ito.Kahit coloring book papatulan ko na rin. Waah.

As for myself, hindi ako kasing blooming tulad ng sunflower. nakakapraning kasi mag-isip gabi-gabi ng magiging future ko. but like all sunflowers, i do follow the movement of the sun. and that's all i can do for now.

*on the otherside of my life, the one apart from Math, (*,*), it was kinda slow and boring and blah. I have nothing to say except that my life now revolves around free stuff! I just LOVE freebies. Free toothpastes, free shampoos, free movies in FI and Videotheque. So, thank goodness for small things because 'tis the only stuff now that brings color to my otherwise so-called bland life.
*Honey: i saw him last night. We were in the same ikot jeep. he was with 2 friends. funny how i actually remembered him even after only meeting him once. so i guess, my brains not failing me yet. if that's news for you then i'd be honored to be the bearer. :) i hate you! you actually did BLUSH!!! there's still hope for chocolate-colored people like us after all! Weee! :) enjoy always. email if you can. i'll text you naman as soon as magkaload ako. :)
Apparently: my most used word these days. ahlavet!
