I was by the fire exit, smoking, when it suddenly poured. A long slab of concrete in between me and the rain.

A lot of people have been opening doors for me today.:)

great times with great friends [27 Mar 2006|04:05am]
[ mood | thankful ]

First and foremost, thank God the deadline for the term paper was moved to Wednesday!!! *happydance* *backflip*
This, err, last night was funfunfun. Went to my ex/good friend Brian's graduation party. On the way home:

Johndy: Parang ang babaw natin ngayong gabing 'to. Conclusion ko lang naman.
Mae: Oo nga eh. Pati yung "yehiyeiy" (yung sa kanta ng The Speaks na Hold Your Head Up High na pinagtripan buong gabi) ni Melvin bentang benta kahit      
          ilang beses nang inulit ulit eh. Pero na-eexcite naman tayo.
Brian: Oo nga. Eh sobrang luma na yun, parati nalang.
Me: Hahaha oo nga ang kulit.
Johndy: May mali din tayo dun.

Congratulations Brian, inhinyero ka na!!!! We're so proud of youuu.:D 

Nothing beats high school friends. The fun of reminiscing, wanting (and not wanting) to bring up funny/embarrassing moments back then when your excuse for having done something rather stupid is always "haha bata pa ako/kami non", going down memory lane and coming up with the conclusion that life back then was so easy, and reaffirming that life (at this stage of transition) is indeed hard. Sabay "cheeeeersss! gooooood tiiiiiiimes!  oops, there's a banana split! looooong teeeerm!" =) The sleep overs, long talks and laughs, crazy trippings, absurd experiments (read: Eisner hahaha), DVD marathons, and the alcohol that did bind us all throughout. *sigh* It always amuses me how trivial past problems become when one looks back, when they seemed big enough to be considered a matter of life and death at that time. Sabi nga sa isang kanta ng Sago, "ako ay nalulunod sa isang basong tubig". And now, with every conversation we have, from senseless talks to out-of-tune songs to love lives and playing Dr. Love to music to politics and society and everything in between, we always end up saying "haaay, tumatanda na talaga tayo" - fortunately with a sense of accomplishment for the most part and a little nostalgia on the side. 

I will be forever grateful for having met you people. I <3 you guys!!!

You want to understand, but sometimes you just can't.

When I'm supposed to wake up, I'm just about to sleep.
Good morning.

c/o Dennis dennischristian

by Neil Gaiman

I don't think that I've ever been in love as such
Although I liked a few folk pretty well
Love must be vaster than smiles or touch
For brave men died and empires rose and fell for love:
Girls followed boys into foreign lands
And men have followed women into Hell

In plays and poems, someone understands
There's someone that makes me more than blood or bone
And more than biological demands...
For me, love's like the wind, unseen, unknown
I see trees bending where it's been
I know it leaves damage where it's blown
I really don't know what  "I love you" means 
I think it means "Don't leave me here alone"

RIP Mang Elbert [04 Jan 2006|01:11am]
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Mr. Elbert Rodriguez, who passed away yesterday, January 2. His remains lie in state at his residence in 10-A Duplex C. B. Francisco Street, Pook Amorsolo, UP Diliman, Quezon City. Elbert served as Laboratory Technician in the College of Arts and Sciences.

His wife passed away just last year, making their two young children orphans too soon. Let us pray for them as well.

A belated merry Christmas and a happy, hApPy, HAPPY New Year to all of you!!!

Like most people, I didn't feel Christmas. It (the anticipation) wasn't merry - at all. Until the day itself came. It was a lot better than I expected. Actually, I  had everything that I could ask for (not materially though haha, but so what?). Family, lasting friendships, reconciliation, a semblance of hope, and lotsa love alongisde all of that.^_^ 

It's funny how I was so sad during the start of this season. It started off bad, then everything kept getting better and better. I hope that's how the year goes as well.

To everyone who made this year meaningful for me, THANK YOU. It has been the most eventful year of my life. Really. I hope happiness finds its way to you always - whether on tiptoe, with fireworks, whispering, in chorus, wrapped or in naked glory.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In October I turned ghost6x in for farting in church (3 points). In August I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last month I bought porn for hellobebe (10 points). Last Wednesday I pushed at_802 in the mud (-17 points). In September I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-11 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!

I was having such a bad day today. I was actually this close to losing it.

But thanks to a pleasant surprise from one of my new Korean students (whom I haven't met yet), my day's not so bad anymore.

a one-of-a-kind letter. (kahit barok 'yan, IN FAIRNESS na-touch ako)Collapse )

It was funny about school.

He sat in a square, brown desk like all the other square, brown desks and he thought it should be red.
And his room was a square, brown room. Like all the other rooms. And it was tight and close. And stiff.

He hated to hold the pencil and the chalk, with his arm stiffand his feet flat on the floor, with the teacher watching and watching. And then he had to write numbers. And they weren't anything. They were worse than the letters that could be something if you put them together...

And the numbers were tight and square and he hated the whole thing.

The teacher came and spoke to him. She told him to wear a tie like all the other boys. He said he didn't like them and she said it didn't matter.

After that they drew. And he drew all yellow and it was the way he felt about morning. And it was beautiful.

The teacher came and looked at his picture. "What's this?" she said. "Why don't you draw something like Ken's drawing? Isn't that beautiful?"

It was all questions.

After that his mother bought him a tie and he always drew airplanes and rocket ships like everyone else.

- from "About School", a poem that was handed to a Grade 12 English teacher in Regina, Saskatchewan. Although it isn't known if the student actually wrote it himself, it is known that he committed suicide two weeks later.

ambilis ng panahon. [05 Dec 2005|08:18pm]
[ mood | sleepy ]

kagabi habang nagbabasa ako ng readings para sa paper sa dev biglang may narinig akong tunog ng lata, maracas at mga tinig ng batang kumakanta. tas nagulat ako at medyo nagtaka kung bakit may ganon. parang na-slow ako ng malupit tas biglang it dawned on me, december na pala. panahon na ng caroling. parang hello duh anlapit na kaya ng pasko.

anubayan dalawang taon ko nang di nararamdaman ang pasko. ibig kaya sabihin non tumtanda na ako?


grabe, last year halos limang friends ko ang kinasal na. tapos ngayon, andami pa sa kanila (na ka-age ko lang, meron ding slightly older) ang ikakasal next year. exage. ambilis ng panahon. dati puro teks, marvel cards, stationeries at stickers lang ang pinagkakaabalahan. tas naging sleepovers. tas naging inuman nights at gimmick nights kasabay ang out-of-town trips. tas puro kabastusan na ang nalalaman hahaha. tas dati mga kiddie birthday parties lang ang inaasikaso. alala ko nun hirap na hirap pa akong pumili kung anong party package ung kukunin ko sa mcdo. may carnival, outer space ekek themes pa sila. tsaka mascots. eh katabi lang ng kostka (grade school ko) ung mcdo non so ansaya. tapos non di kami mapagkandaugaga ng bestfriend ko sa kakalista ng 18 candles at 18 roses namin. tas habang naglilista kami, mga 16 yrs. old palang yata kami, excited eh.

parang kailan lang ganon lang yung ginagawa niyo. tas biglang may magsusulputan parang kabute na mga binyag at kasal doon at dito. sana wala namang mga annulment sa lalong madaling panahon. basta ambilis talaga. andami ng transitions. tas parang ansaya lang manood sa paligid. sa lahat ng nangyayari. na parang kinukwento lang ito lahat sa iyo. o kaya napapanood mo lang sa tv.
