Missing Home

Haven't been around here lately. Well, work has me occupied once more. Actually it's not work perse but my "extra stuff" to earn "extra lot". I guess I'm eager to get a lot of writing jobs because as of recent there's a huge rift between me and my mom. I dunno there's been some kind of 'thing' that we've been circling around on and I just keep pushing it at the back of my to-do list. And you know me I don't really like getting into confrontations.

Uh you might be wondering what has this got to do with my financial stats... Oh-k. My mom just remarried and she's fixing a lot of papers here and there. Don't ask me the details...Anyway I think my time as the favored daughter is up since she's been talking to my sister a lot (Sometimes I feel that it's all because she has an American fiance who's gonna bring her to the US). All I'm getting are pretty much second hand info from Pia. I'm just a phone call or email away and I just hate to be the last person to know that I AM going to be encountering something BIG.

Since I was young I hate digressing about money stuff. Traumatized probably by my father's irresponsible ways. Then the burden of handling OUR financial stuff more or less made me --- I don't know how to describe it. Materialistic? Thrifty? A money worry wart? I have been keeping home eversince she left and believe me its hard, not just keeping house but keeping everything and everyone together.

Ah, well to continue, I have been informed that we will not be receiving our monthly allowance from her. 'Til further notice. So dear friends don't expect to see me in a few months or so *heh* Seriously, I have wracked my brain for resources other than my freaking slave salary. I'm sour graping too that she can send my older sister money anytime she asks for help. But when its our turn, know what she said? "Malalaki na nga kayo dapat di ko na kayo iniintindi." WTF.

Some of you are lucky. You have a family -- a daddy, a mommy, a dog. A roof on your head to call your own. No one to throw you out...Really sometimes I just feel a bit lost.

I guess the angsty me is still in here after all. This scar's probably deeper than all the other scars that i have. I'm ending it here for now. I can feel the tears welling at the corners of my eyes. It's not good for the eye make-up I put on for 20 minutes this morning.

Kissing Diet

I want to lose weight!!!(I'm dead serious)

Eating dinners with my significant other had the pounds I lost catching up on me again. So I was searching the internet for dieting tips (yeah yeah) and I chanced upon this one in Reader's Digest

But what caught my attention (and Flow's too) was this one:

53. Passionately kiss your partner 10 times a day. According to the 1991 Kinsey Institute New Report on Sex, a passionate kiss burns 6.4 calories per minute. Ten minutes a day of kissing equates to about 23,000 calories -- or eight pounds -- a year!

Nice idea don't you think hehehe ^^

The Day I Went Back to School

Yes, I went back to U.P. the other week. I really wanted to take those Korean lessons so Pia, Flow, Abby together with Grace and Cors who were paying for advanced Korean classes trekked to U.P. It's the first time I went back to my unibersidad na mahal ^^ for like almost 6 years. I went there last in 2000 for the latern parade.

We got off at the Palma Hall Annex, near the Educ bldg. Man, it was like a trip back to 1995! I remember taking my Philo 1 class at the 2nd floor of the Educ bldg. The entire block ran off to the Sunken Garden to escape our boring teacher (who was late for 15 mins BTW and suddenly popped out of nowhere. Remember the rule?) *lol* I remember walking to math class after that with my whole freshie block. *sigh* I remember being just 16 years old!!!! geez...

feeling tourist kadiri...

Ayway we ate at the Beach House (mga pare at mare 24 pesos na po ang isang stick ng bbq dati 12 lang yun...) and walked towards the Asian Center through the Main Library and around the Sunken Garden. Here I am doing skips here and there with Flow.

ladidah...ang laki ng likod ni Flow...

After Grace and Cors stop over at the AC, we walked (still) going to the chapel and Shopping Center. Sobrang memories talaga everywhere! The smell of zerox powder, Miranda's, UP souvenir shirts, bluebooks, ice cream and the coop grocery.

Hay I miss going to school, the time when all you thought about was passing your subjects, graduating, torturing your org applicants and saving enough money from your allowance to watch movies at SM North Edsa during breaks. *sigh*

The Eiffel Tower...

Not. We got a bit tired of our 9th floor restroom so we decided to primp ourselves in one of the 13th floor CRs. It also got us to tour Abby, our new writer around. This is the view from there...a deranged man once tried to climb the tower but he got caught. I wonder though how he got there without security noticing him.

Anyway just to put this on record, I'm acting up on my boyfriend today. Ala lang. Nice to rile him up once in a while. ;)

And for some independence day entertainment you can either watch this or this...tell me if you were entertained ha!

A Letter to My Sleepy Self

Dear Self,

Well, well. So you thought it was all over last Saturday, right? But here you are still experiencing the ripples from the giant wave that crashed over you. Oh it might last for a few months or so, just to let you know.

And yeah, i just heard there's a new site for the new 'one' so brace yourself. I have a strong inkling that it is another tunami in the making. Lord help us or make that Lord help you.

Toodles dear. Good luck and snap out of your hazy dream.


Your looney selfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

His eyes pleaded. But she did not feel any remorse. She knew that he loved her yet she couldn't control what was happening to her. Their eyes connected. Their world was spinning. It was a painful ending. He knew it was time. He couldn't stop her. He wished her well...

Sniff...I had to borrow my boyfriend's hanky. Naiyak ako nung namatay si Professor X. ^^
