I tried Googling my name earlier, (hello? define BORED) and I was shocked to see it on a Friendster blog. I opened it, of course, and I had no idea who the blogger was.

To my shock and embarrassment, I saw a short story in an entry. It had my name on it as the writer. At first, I didn’t believe it. I could not recall writing such a story. I mean, the last time I wrote was when I was in high school. That was when it hit me: I did write this story when I was in high school. I can’t recall when exactly but I think I was in my senior year at that time. My gawd. Embarrassing. As expected, it was a love story. With a tragic ending.

I dont have Friendster and I couldn’t trace the user easily.  I tried all the possible keywords I could find from the said blog and Googled it until I found a Multiply site. I had no idea who he was but he has friends from my high school (Assumption) and he belonged to the Assumption group as well.

I won’t put in the link of his Multiply (since he appears to be active there) but here is the link of his FS blog where the embarrassing story was found.

To “Ron – Technology Freak”, thank you! 😀

Yes, I’m currently listening to Vertical Horizon’s Best I Ever Had. Thus the title.

Last Monday was Reg’s birthday. She had a mini house party. Hahaha, define bibo? Aside from Reg and her brother, there were only seven people in the house (Me, George, Jeje, Clyde, Basil, Harvey, Edwin) , but I think it contributed to the lingaw factor. Gubot super.

We had Gilbey’s Premium, The Bar vodka and Tanduay. But I’m not going to delve into the details of that night kasi basta. What happens in Puan remains in Puan! Haha, basta I woke up with a major hangover. I puked (oops, sorry) everything I ate and drank in the past 24 hours.

They bought me coke, cooked me noodles, made me lie on the bed pero wala pa rin. Suka pa rin. Tapos in the end, I only had to take a bath lang pala. Good thing, kasi that afternoon, Reg, Jeje, Nep-C (who was absent at the drinking fest) trekked downtown for various “trippings”.

Hello? I can say with all confidence that I developed a special and intimate relationship with the toilet that fateful night. Or day. Whatever. I almost hugged its base and kissed its rim while I poured out my heart into it. Spell EWW?

When I was still sober, yes we were still drinking that time so I’m sure I was still sober, I remember Jeje laughing her special laughter. I don’t know how to illustrate it but imagine laughter followed by one or two (or three) snorts? Ayown. As expected, we all cracked up upon hearing it. Jeje said, “Huhu, maski unsaon nako dili jud nako ma-change akong katawa” plus the sad face.

And then I remember telling her this, “Je, it’s okay. Someday a man’s going to fall for you because of your laughter.

Silence. Then George said, “Huuuyyy! Man, hubog na ka? Sugod na man ang emo?”

I said, “Lagi. A man will fall for you because of your flaws, not because of your perfection.”

More “huuuyyy’s” follow. Change topic kay ulaw. Haha.

Then,  I realized that what I said in my tipsy state was true. It was intended originally to cheer Jeje up but I realized, most of the time, it’s when your guard is down that someone falls for you. And I really needed to tell that to myself, to not anymore pretend as if I had no weaknesses when my weakness is around. Thus the title.

Bow.

I just ate my words.

I swore I’m never going to watch Ten Things I hate About You the television series because I just want to remember the Patrick Verona who was played by Heath Ledger, like ten years ago.

1999

But Heath Ledger is Heath Ledger. Ethan Peck is love.

I mean, he isn’t exceptionally good- looking, but the way he acts, his voice when he speaks, you could just wish you were in Kat’s place.

All the actors were also really good. I like the fact that they did not choose picture perfect stars; they chose people who look like people. And the queen bee, Chastity, was black and beautiful.

The script, too, was great. I laughed out loud, which got not a few raised brows from the people at home. It was witty, something I did not really expect based from the sharp lines delivered a decade ago from the movie.

I finished the entire season this afternoon. In one sitting. I haven’t eaten lunch or dinner yet. Who cares? Haha, kidding. Guess who couldn’t wait for Season 2!

She stays up, way past midnight. She tells her parents she won’t do this again, that she’d sleep earlier, but she just can’t. No trace of drowsiness, no yawn escapes her lips even though the clock from the blaring computer monitor says it’s already 2:44.

She doesn’t really do anything. She just sits there, trying to figure out what’s wrong with her life.

She refreshes her Facebook, the 4 friend requests from early that evening became 5. She opens them in another tab, looks at these random people and closes the tab. She doesn’t ignore the invites; she just lets them pile up before deciding on what to do with them. Just like what she does to her problems. Let them pile up.

She gets bored and decides to sleep.

No she doesn’t. She lays there, looking at the ceiling. She doesn’t twist and turn. She remains in the same position and takes out her phone. One unread text message arrived hours before. She didn’t even notice. She reads it, a quote. A love quote.

It’s funny how other people are willing to do lots of brave things just for you, yet you still choose someone who can’t even offer you half of what others could.”

She scrolls down to finish the message. She smiles and gently shakes her head.

“Fuck love,” she says.

She then takes out her headphones and attaches it to her phone. The playlist is on shuffle, she listens to Nirvana for a while. She bobs her head along with the beat and as suddenly as it began, it ends.

Pachelbel’s Canon plays next. She doesn’t know why she put this on her playlist, it’s not her type of music. She smirks but listens on anyway. Then she turns to her side and cries in earnest until she falls asleep.

This is officially my first post done in WP.

I dunno. Too many lurkers around in Blogger. The only solution was to make my blog private. And I got tired of it. So I said to myself last night, why not make a new one? 🙂

Anyway, it’s almost sem break! Yey! All I have to do is fix my  thesis. The great thesis.  The great thesis who did not let me sleep for how many nights. And that’s it! Vacation mode, err… for about two weeks? Never mind. It’s two weeks or nothing.

I pick two weeks.

I really, really hope that next semester will be my last semester in college. OMG, the last few months of jeepney student fare. I badly want to graduate on time. I mean, who doesn’t?

I really had a hard time doing my thesis. If you remember, I posted a blog entry telling how I changed my topic, on my freewill. While my classmates were already finishing theirs, I decided to completely erase my almost done thesis and make a new one.

After that, I had to make A LOT of changes. Then on my defense, while I wasn’t asked to revise completely, I was asked to change the focus of my study. When I started editing it, I found out that I couldn’t possibly change the focus without changing everything.

So I revised almost everything on the weekend before the plenary. I wasn’t able to consult my adviser because of the lack of time so I was really nervous when it was my turn to defend in the plenary. But it turned out fine. After all! Finally! Sa wakas!

Okay, enough of that talk. As if I’d really graduate on time? Haha. Spell a-s-s-u-m-i-n-g.

I’m just really glad we made it through the first effin’ semester alive. Complete with weight loss and double- set eye bags. Yeah boy. Another sem to go! Hello COMA 200b, let’s stay alive ’til next year!

thesis it! October 4, 2009

Whew. After a week- long blogging hiatus, here I am blogging again. Not because I have anything worth blogging about but because I am SO desperately in need of a distraction.

I stayed the entire weekend home because I got two exams (believe me, they’re not just exams) coming on Tuesday (yes, sabay sila). Good luck sa aking pagmememorize sa Wild Tribes of Mindanao for Anth 125 and the 400 paintings, the artists and the era plus lecture notes for AH5.

I still have papers to do. The mall study for Anth 125 pa rin (what’s with these SocSci electives?) and I haven’t done half of the screenplay for MEDA 112. And it was due last Friday. Errr…

*bigti*

And on top of that, tomorrow (yes Maan, tomorrow! wah!!!) is my thesis defense. It’s such a major oh no. *cries for help*
I have just begun doing the PPT presentation for it and I just spent around ten minutes doing the title slide. Good luck. I hope I do well tomorrow. Please, please, please.

Okay, tapos na ang break time. Back to work. Wish me luck!
