Bakit ngayon ka lang dumating sa buhay ko?

February 13, 2007

No, this is not a Valentine’s post. Hehe, whatever. The title refers to isaw. Yes, isaw. And why is that? Last week, when stipends came, I wanted to buy a late lunch before I reached home. I decided to buy goto but since I remembered the last time I bought one didn’t taste that good, I had to settle with lugaw isaw even though I haven’t tasted it yet. Good thing it tasted decent… and as a matter of fact, I liked it so much that I thought of buying again on the next day. So I did. And on the next, next day, I bought one again. And on the next, next, next day, I bought one again. And I thought to buy one almost everyday until the end of the school year. It was just too yummy to resist…^_^

But when Saturday came, I found out that my mom just had her semi-annual medical check-up. She found out that she had high blood pressure… just like my uncle and my lolo. Yes people, autosomal dominant trait in work. Then I became scared… what if I get it too at an early age? As we all know, one of the causes for high blood is salty and fatty food. *ehem* isaw *ehem* Oh well, I was just starting to develop my love for isaw but unfortunately, we cannot be together. Sigh…

My prom dress is out. Eek. I’m not totally happy with it. I look fat in it, I think it’s too ballooney, the beadwork is boring and it’s too plain. Hay, chipipay. Oh well. That’s okay as long as I enjoy the night… that’s what matters. And besides, the gown is pink ๐Ÿ˜€

And… today’s plates! Yay! I like it so much! I think it’s somewhat identical to the original art. I did this series because the characters of this anime are much easier to draw compared to Tsubasa Chronicles, Full Metal Alchemist, Loveless, Chobits or some other anime. There would be 2 more for the digimon series… Ken and Daisuke(Davis). I don’t think I would be able to do the sempais… too much digimon for me. The 2 ones will be out on February 15 and 16.

That’s it for today! Signing out to eat dinner and watch Asian Treasures on GMA… then I’ll hit the books since tomorrow’s the last day of the achievement tests. Math and English. Ciao!

Keep it short stupid.

January 31, 2007

I don’t want to be too emotional for this post. I was able to make one a while ago (6 long paragraphs) but the browser hanged so I thought of it as a sign on not to make a long emo one.

I was in a uber bad mood a while ago… I wanted to graduate already so that I wouldn’t see those classmates of mine anymore. I even wished that one of them would die or encounter an accident. I wanted to forget about every bad thing that has happened to me for the past months. I hated it… this feeling. This stupid mood of mine! And the reason? Of course I knew why! Ano pa ba ang dahilan? But I still kept on wondering why I kept on getting these terrible mood swings. I didn’t know what went wrong. I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I didn’t know what wrongdoings I’ve done to deserve this. I really hated the world at that time and once again, I was friends with Mr. Kutsilyo.

When I arrived home, I went bloghopping to remedy my temper. I didn’t know why but I decided to first visit and read my classmate’s blog. Lo and behold… a new post. And with that post I finally realized that the answers to my paranoid questions could just be found inside the Bible or could just be heard in last Sunday’s gospel.

“Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other peopleโ€™s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.”

I recalled in our 3rd year retreat, we were also asked to change the “love” to our own names. At that time, I just laughed as I repeated that verse because I thought that it was pretty funny and silly. But just a while ago, as I tried to replace my name once again, I found myself dumbfounded… none of those words really described myself at that moment. I was not love… not even close!

So maybe that’s the reason why this things have been happening to me. I was the opposite of love…hate… therefore I was hated back. Sigh. Yun pala yun. This has been such a huge regret of mine. Well, it’s now very difficult to turn back time…but now, I want to change this attitude. I still have around a month left here in Pisay but I think it’s still not to late to turn a new leaf. Wala lang. I really, really hope that it’s not really late.

So yun lang. Ipinahiwatig ko lang ang isang mahalagang leksyon sa buhay ko. Salamat AJ sa post na iyon.

STUDENT NO. 2007-46476

When the results of the UPCAT came out online yesterday at 12 midnight, a handful of my batchmates were already looking at them, searching their names first, then their friends, and then their fellow batchmates who they thought would be Oblation Scholars. I passed at my first choice- BS ECE. I asked Gihan to ask her mom to look at my results.

However, I really wanted to find out for myself if I did pass… that’s why after classes, a few of my classmates went to the Palma Hall Annex to look at the results despite the rumors that there was a frat war going on (Luckily, there wasn’t any). Sure enough, I passed. Haha. I have a sure future na. We also counted how many of our batchmates were Oblation Scholars (Congrats to the 25 who made it! ) and those who passed INTARMED (I don’t have the exact number). I’ll post the list as soon as I have it. [EDIT: 26 pala sa Oblation. 34 sa Intarmed]

Now here’s a problem. Ateneo or UP?? (Ayoko na sa MAPUA. Sira ulo talaga ako nung pinili ko yung course ko…Triple degree course?! mamamatay ako dun) I really want to take up BS-CS in Ateneo. I also like to take ECE but I always have this strange and weird feeling that I won’t be able to handle the course. I’m thinking of shifting after a year in ECE to CS but others say that only school delinquents shift courses because they don’t know what to do in life. Ganun ba yun? Fine, I really don’t know what to do in the future. Oh well, I still have time to decide what I really want.
Well, I’m really happy for myself and for others who did make it. But somehow I felt sad too… Ewan ko nga lang… nagbreak down lang ako kaninang umaga. (Hay, nanaman?! Ano kaya mangyayari sa akin sa graduation) I think I just don’t like the thought that we’re going on separate ways. Hay. Inevitable naman talaga sya… pero… Wala lang. Pisay is such a big influence in my life. It would just be hard to let go. Haha. Ano ba yan! Magdradrama nanaman ba ako?

Oh well. Ganun talaga. OKAY! DOST naman! Kahit April pa sya, excited na ako! ^_^

Thanks talaga Lord. This has been such a great blessing!

Good things come to an end

January 2, 2007

Yes people! I have a new skin! So it’s my first time to use a navi-type skin for this blog so I’ll be disabling the “Previous layout” for a moment while I look for (or make) a new skin. I got a new layout because of japboy’s comments. I really didn’t know what my blog looked like in a 1280×800 browser until yesterday when I checked out my blog in my friend’s PC. It really looked ugly! So here’s the skin that made me super happy in Blogskins since it was able to reach the 4th spot at the Top 15 rated. Though it lasted on the charts for roughly 3 days, it gave me a sense of satisfaction. With that, I’ll be taking a short break (or is that hiatus) from BS for a while.

I think that I’ll also be going on a hiatus from blogging too. Tomorrow, my blog would be one-month old! (Happy birthmonth to you…) But asides from that, I would be going back to school on the same day. So I have to welcome back Calculus (Integrals na ata), Econ (more GNP, GDP), Biology, Chemistry, Physics (flux!!), English (must reread Les Miserables), Filipino (ahahahahahah~), CAT, Viscomm and more stuff. It’s sad but good things really have to come to an end. I haven’t started on my palancas for the retreat yet!!! OMG. Come to think of it, I haven’t done anything productive for this break! Oh well…

So yesterday, the whole world celebrated the coming of the new year. My family went to Paranaque for the New Year’s Eve party. There, I met old friends and neighbors… They seemed to be surprised in seeing my brother who has grown a lot taller so some of them failed to recognize him at a glance.

After eating and watching the fireworks at the party, I went to my neighbor’s house to use their computer. What a way to spend New Year. Shortly after, we went back to my lola’s house to go to sleep (We decided that it was a hastle to go back to QC so we decided to sleep over at my lola’s house). I was the first one to fall asleep that’s why I was surprised when I woke up. As I sat up on my lola’s bed, I saw people asleep on the floor. Cmon. The house has 5 bedrooms but we were all jammed in my lola’s bedroom. Wahahah. Nahiya talaga ako… solo ko yung bed. Pero wala talaga akong magawa at silang lahat ay tulog kaya natulog ulit ako.

I woke up again at 9:45. We ate breakfast and attended mass. After that, we went to SM Sucat and had a studio pic. Wahahah.

Then we ate at Pizza Hut. I personally don’t like their BBQ ribs pizza. It’s too sweet for me but I still enjoyed the rest of the meal. After that, we went home, had siesta, watched tv and finally bade goodbye. We went to Cafe Breton at Tomas Morato to eat dinner (mmm! love their crepes!) then went home.

Oh well. So this is the first official post of the year and the last official post for the Christmas break. I’m not sure if I’ll still be able to visit other people’s blogs or post blog entries that often after the next few days so I’ll just say that I’ll miss you guys! Wahahah. I really enjoyed my online life (if that’s what you call it). I’ve met a lot of cool and nice people and I’ve learned more about the blogging community here in the Philippines. Ang saya pala. Wahahah. Blogging has somewhat made me feel… uhm… special I guess. After winning the FBOTW, I realized that some people out there really reads what I have to say and that I also have something interesting to read about people whom I haven’t really met personally. This Christmas break made me somewhat fulfilled. So ayun, I guess I’ll see you guys around. This was totally a blast! ๐Ÿ™‚

Old and new

December 14, 2006

Last Monday, I was able to chat with an old friend whom I haven’t seen for 4 years. He was a childhood friend whom I’ve known ever since I was in the third grade. The last time I personally saw him was four years ago when I still lived in our apartment in Paranaque. He also lived in the same apartment, he was a unit away from ours. I still remember that he and his family moved out at around January 2004 and lived at a nearby subdivision. He would usually go back to our neighborhood and visit his friends who lived there. I haven’t seen him ever since he moved out because I was already a dormer at that time and could not be at home that often.

Around a month ago, I learned that his family has already migrated to another country. How could have I known that they would move out again… and to think that I kept on anticipating him and his younger sister everytime I would visit my old home.

When we talked, I noticed that he was still the same as before. He was the same nice, polite and thoughtful guy. He asked if I was still fine and how my life was. He also told me about his life right now. I learned that he was also graduating high school this year. I found this quite amusing because I knew that back then, when I was about to enter high school, he was about to enter the 6th grade. And he also took up grade 7. Hindi ko talaga alam kung paano yun nangyari. :/ He’s already on his Christmas break already but his sibblings are still in school. Pareho pala kami.

We reminisced a bit on our childhood days. We recalled on how we used to play patintero and another game whose name I’ve forgotten already (It’s like hide and seek) all day long… grabe, those good old days.

When he left, I continued remembering those days of roaming around the subdivision, playing playstation, playing games like langit-lupa, taguan, tumbang preso, buying fishball in the afternoon, climbing trees, biking on unchartered terrains, getting scolded for staying up late, bullying guys younger AND older than me… the list seemed endless. I really missed those times. You could really say that I had a good childhood. Well yes, I did. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. So you could’ve imagined me crying on the night before I left for the dorm. Oo, napaiyak ako. I was saying goodbye to those days. I knew then that there was no turning back. I was already growing up and I needed to let go all those things for something “better”. Oo, madrama nga. Kaya titigil muna ako ngayon. I’m sure that the things that I gave up was worth it but I really wish that I could go back to those times. I still keep in touch with my other neighbors but not all of them. I just like to say that I MISS YOU GUYS!

I spent the whole week bloghopping. Like what I’ve said, I had a lot of time to waste. I enjoyed reading their blogs… I found out about a lot of things about the world out there and saw a lot of people with similar problems, favorites or preferences as I had. It was also amusing because I felt like it was also a small world out there. After wandering far, far away from my original point I was able to get back… (and see that a lot of people were tagging ๐Ÿ˜€ thanks!) I also happened to meet a schoolmate (a batch younger) who shared a lot of similar interests with me. I just finished meeting her on a game and she seemed very nice… that’s why I’m going to hunt her down next year because she made my PC hang. Wahahah.

For yesterday and today, I was able to chat with Gihan, Jo and Tin. It’s been the first week of Christmas vacation but I already miss them all. Gihan was still the same hyper person that she managed to keep me up all night. Too bad that she wasn’t able to enter Intel. Sosyal pa naman nagawa nila. I also had another one-on-one talk with Jo, my personal planarian psychiatrist. She somewhat was able to slap some sense to me. I was having those regular breakdown moments which she managed to ease. Baliw talaga ako.

Asides from talking and chatting to them, they all reminded me to do STR, econ and Viscomm. Wahah. Kaya…

Name and Image-Ready

December 11, 2006
In the past 15 years in my life, I never really encountered people with the same name as I do. I’m sure I’ve heard of some actresses who had a similar name as I did (actually I got my name from a Denise from the Cosby show) but that was it. I rarely see or meet people with that name and I don’t even see my name much in raffle winners and movie credits! Well, I found nothing wrong with that. I don’t like people knowing 2 Denises after all. And I’m even irritated that my former classmates used to tease me as “taong lobo” because my name’s similar to Dennis from Ghostfighter.

When I was young, I was joked that I was going to be a drunkard someday since my name means “Goddess of Wine”. My name is actually based from Dionysius, the god of wine. I figured that out through our first quarter book in English for this school year–“Mythology” by Edith Hamilton. Dionysius drove people mad or frenzied by making them too much drunk with wine. Maybe I’m pretty similar with that guy god. I love to drive people insane.

I was inspired to do this post because I finally learned how Adobe ImageReady! It’s a program that makes animated gifs with a bit help from Photoshop. Here’s the first one I’ve ever made.

Haha. Kakaaliw sya. And how does this relate to my name? Duh. Ayun oh. Pangalan ko ang nakasulat. ๐Ÿ˜›

Asides from that, I’ve obviously had a lot of time to kill so I found myself bloghopping. I stumbled to 3 blogs with authors who had the same name as I did. I found them linked to one another that’s why I felt strangely amused with the thought. One of Denises gave a link to an ImageReady tutorial. I really thank her for putting that up. I hope that she doesn’t mind me putting up her link so that I can get back to the tutorial anytime. AND SHE HAS A HIKARU UTADA SONG! I wanted to put up the same song (Hikari) in my site but I couldn’t find the URL for that song. I have the midi in my computer though…

So, that’s it for my shortest post so far. Time to bloghop more! Kudos! ^^
