Hello, old friend [May. 8th, 2010|08:03 am]
 I ended up on an old friend's Livejournal because I clicked on a link from another site..and I realized that I miss writing on LJ. Tumblr's just not the same, and Blogspot's a bit nakakatamad nowadays..and obviously, Twitter and Facebook don't give you the chance to rant or rave about your day, beyond a dinky little status message. So here I am, again, after a whole year..after one of the most eventful years (if not the most eventful year!) of my life!

5 Big Highlights of the past year (just to get LJ back up to speed):

1. Freshman year in the University of the Philippines, Diliman. I absolutely love my college, the college of Architecture a.k.a. UP Arki ♡

2. Going through a grueling application process (which included an INTENSE five hour final interview), getting into and being named "Best Applicant" of my beloved org, UP Architecture Forum or AF ♡ AF activities like Hiyas, Meriendahan, AF week, AF frisbee, Arkwiz, doing the design competition with Foom Anjo Cachi and Dax, inumans, dinners, RockBand, L4D, tambay hours, etc etc etc! :)

3. Becoming a trainee for the Architecture Registration Corps ♡

4. Running for the college council, under the blue political party, Alyansa and becoming councilor/sec. gen :) Meeting people from different colleges, getting closer to my arki slatemates ♡

5. Falling in love with the most amazing weirdo I've ever met :) Haha. The commitment-phobe has a steady boyfriend, and this relationship was definitely worth the wait ♡

I'd love to write a little more of better, but I'm in a bit of a rush because I've got to be at the 9AM AF execomm meeting, since I'm Rome's Internals committee assistant! Love my job! :) Exciteeed :D

We've got time :) [Apr. 7th, 2009|07:10 am]
My first week of summer was chill and insightful :) Made lots of changes, did lots of things I said I'd always do but never got to..bikram yoga, aerobics, Guitar Hero, made a new friend (hey Jes I miss you!)
"Me time" is awesome <3 

Looking forward to chill hangouts now and loads of family time, hopefully :) I can sorta feel that I'm going to start wanting to go out-out late April til May, though :) It's like my summer has phases HAHAHA which I totally don't mind :) Not one bit :)

Just when I was beginning to forget [Mar. 27th, 2009|07:18 am]

I saw this on an lj community a few minutes ago and I had to make sure to remember it :)

I'm still a kid, no matter how old and weathered I think I am.
I'm still growing and learning..and this is a big lesson.

I want to be more about celebrating and loving and letting go of hurt.
I want to be more about skipping down life's streets and sidewalks,
and less about checking to see whether they are one way streets or not :)
Less about conditions and repayments,
more about things that go beyond reasons.

Less like me, more like Eeka.

How I've grown, in highschool? [Mar. 26th, 2009|09:54 pm]
I've become adept in letting go of the things I know I CAN live without.
But more importantly,
I've become stubborn in keeping the things I DON'T WANT TO live without.

Holy smokes! [Mar. 25th, 2009|04:39 pm]

I was trying so hard to figure out why all that had to happen
-I had to know if there was a point to all the seemingly pointless drama and hardship.
And it's so so clear, now. I am so glad I didn't run away from that talk with Mrs. Maudie.
AAAH Kuya Jess, you work in seriously amazing ways. Damn :)

Kapit lang :) Tanggap lang ng tanggap :) BASTA IKAW, LORD.

(1)..on a softball high, for the first time in AGES! I am so glad I finally went to pitching practice :) Yeah I guess I'm not exactly over my love for softball, yet :) Mehnnn I hope I get back in condition. Mehn I hope I get to continue playing in college :) I can't wait to train again! And crosstrain! And eat right and sleep right and not drink or smoke or do drugs so I can play properly! I now understand why my dad was so stubborn about me continuing to play :)

(2)..so effing excited to spend Thursday-Saturday in Makati with Mills, Lalay and hopefully Coco and BeaG. My mom and I went grocery shopping for it, today and that in itself was hella fun too <3 I cannot wait to meet up with other friends, when we go out, too! Shout out to Rina Andreees :)

(3)..grateful for the gift of Father Edwin and that awesome recollection. Insights galore. Nick, you are AMAZING <3 I am also grateful for all the people I got to hug during the giving of peace, and grateful for the batch song, and grateful for my teachers, and grateful for my barkada who're still there even if I'm like a ghost-slash-hermit.

(4)..still dying to go back to Divisoria

(5)..missing DENISE CAMPOS like crazyyy. I love you, OMC! :* + :( + >:D< I aaalso miss my brother from another mother, already. Separation anxiety HAHA NATT. I miss his iPod =)) Whuuutts

(6)..packing a whole buncha stuff for the weekend. I am way too excited, I bet I'll overpack but forget all the important stuff like I always do! Okay am I so obviously deprived of go-outs? HAHA

Awesome [Mar. 18th, 2009|05:24 am]
I loved not being an "only child" for these past two days :) The perks of having my brother from another mother, over:

1. There's always someone who eats more than I do, so I don't feel too bad when I pig out
2. There's someone who'll make really DUMB bets with me
3. There's someone to make fun of people's Multiply posts, with
4. There's someone to offer to carry my bags when I go to Divi or Greenbelt (contrast)
5. There's someone to watch really weird documentaries with HAHA extreme bodies =))
6. There's someone to eat all the food lola shoves at us :)) My lifesaver
7. There's someone.

I am equally excited to spend the weekend with my some of my sisters from other misters, starting tomorrow <3

My friends :) [Mar. 14th, 2009|02:54 am]
Despite everything, I am just way too thankful for  the ones that have seen even the things I hate the most about myself..the ones who've, in turn, refused to be shoved, and have let me see the things they hate the most about themselves.

I'm glad I let you drag this hermit out from under her rock :) I am blessed :)

Tiwala? [Mar. 13th, 2009|03:49 pm]
When you get close to people,
you give them the chance to see
everything you hate about yourself

And although a part of you will always long for
companionship and understanding,
something about distance and silence
just makes it seem a little easier to take
