I have been on plurk more than on YM and Facebook. Funny, I am thinking of something to blog about. Where have all the brain cells gone? Usually, I'd just stare in my Mac and would instantly know what to blog about. I just observe things, people (most of the time), and the words are to flow. But now, NADA. I stumbled upon Lauren Conrad's site and saw her Spring Collection. Lupit. Chic and playful at the same time. I just hope that for one, people who claim to be "in" and flaunt their spring (in our case, summer) dresses would care to flaunt NICE dresses (not some menkapoop, flop dingbangs) and SHAVE THEIR ARMPITS (whiten them, even) and second, I wish I'd lose some weight. Crisis, people! I have weight issues and I'm not kidding.
Here are some of the ensemble from Lauren Conrad's Spring Charm Collection:
I will buy cheaper versions because I'm beyond thrifty!
I wanna wear my hair like that. I will try now (I'm that bored).

So, did anyone turn off their powered appliances, or at least cut down on electricity consumption, between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm as their contribution to Earth Hour? I guess not. I remember last year, my brother Franco, the Green Peace/IHeartTheEarthSoMuch advocate, turned off his lights, TV, airconditioning, and computer. After an hour or so, he went out of his room, literally dripping in sweat. Too cute for words and was a funny sight--Zia just had to remind all of us after hearing Mass earlier. I had to gulp down my meal as I have to run and meet my friends. Catching up yeah.
I had fun at Bugsy's tonight with Ib and Toni, whom I had to pick up at my future condo unit at Lafayette 1. Nice place and I haven't been inside. It's cool to have a convenience store just right downstairs, it is quite convenient? Ha ha. Bumped into Icey, Shai, Thad, and Eleu (who is now bonding with Toni). Thad gave me false hopes! He said Danica Acdal was also gonna be there and I got so excited: "TONI, BEBS IS GONNA BE HEEEEEEERE!" Turned out Thad was asking me if Danica was gonna be there. Was I that slow? Not being able to determine a question and a statement. Anyway, I miss you, Bebs.
While Toni, Eleu, and Ib were downing Cherry Bombs and Beer, I was downing my reliable Iced Tea. I ordered three glasses and am now dizzy.
Here are some photos, I will upload more in Multiply and Facebook.

I'd like to think that love is the most amazing thing in the world. And that love, once gained, will end all sufferings and bring nothing but joy. Unfortunately, I cannot make a case in point as "love" is the last thing I worry about these days--meeting love, perhaps.
My standpoint: the good things about love--the tingles, the phone calls and sweet nothings, and even the free lunch, is overshadowed by the bad things about love--the heartbreak, the cheating, the trauma, and the unattended mobile phone.
I am the antagonist of my own love story. Why? Because I do not believe in love. One time, I chickened out on it because of its very idea. I was accused of "doing nothing". No, I did not "do nothing". I was scared because he was able to crack me. And that's one of the situations I hate the most--someone being able to find my core and accept it.
I was reading Haeja's latest post about love. Different views for two people who believe in the common good and are exhausted with Pol.Eco. (ha ha!). From her blog: holding someone's heart and having the ability to break it. Nasakto mo.
I'd rather have an empty stomach than hearing "the subscriber cannot be reached".

My little brother, Franco, is now 18 years old. But he will always be my baby brother. :)
FLOPPS ako tonight! Sorry, guys. Na-bore ako. Rakrakan pa naman ako. I wonder why I got bored.
The other side of the fence: konte nalang, 8,000 hits na ako! WOOHOO! I don't know why I've been obsessing about the counter BUT at least meron nagbabasa ng blog ko,
The neighbors' fence that's painted carnation pink: I saw the "fastfood" branch on the way to Ponti awhile ago. It looks so calm without the lights and the people. Galing lang, how they made it look like it was shot during the day when it was actually shot at 12:30am!

This docu-movie was just stashed under my DVD player and I decided to give it a try. Turned out great actually. It kind of made me miss highschool and made me wonder about my so-called identity in highschool--or the lack thereof. To what clique do I belong in? Was drama part of the package? Or are all these debunk-able?
The docu-movie was directed by Nanette Burstein. It features kids from Warsaw, Indiana, all of which are categorize under: the band geeks, the jocks, the queen bees, and the in-betweens.
So, who were you?
Read more about American Teen HERE.
Cheerios and enjoy!

WOOOT. I will have time to update my blog, like 3 per day! HA HA HA! I had to change the boring white background to this black boring one! I need a REAL template though--one that could accommodate all the stuff in my blog (i.e. the counter, facebook badge, plurk, and tagboard). Last time I tried to change mine, nawala lahat! Sino marunong?
I can't think of anything good to write. Later nalang. I think everyone should Plurk more. Gimme some Karma!!!!

I promise to work all day tomorrow to compensate for the time I have wasted on taking a nap and looking for the clues in the Mystery Case Files.
I PROMISE. The WTO paper will be done by tomorrow. I will divide my time accordingly, and not one division will go to the two mentioned above. OKAY.
I will look for more clues.

For a long time of hunting, I've FINALLY scored myself a copy of Wicker Park (thanks, JC!). I know I should've given extra effort on the hunt but nonetheless, I have seen IT and I loved every minute of the movie! WEE.
The bumpy truth, which I just found out a few minutes ago, is out and about. So here goes, I got this quote from Diane's site
“Thank you for confirming to the universe that between the two of us, you’re the one who’s bitter. Yes please keep telling yourself faulty assumptions because who knows, maybe one day you’ll believe them. But for the mean time, let me just bask in this convenient truth.”
THANKS for making me stronger. I cannot thank you enough. I survived, redeemed myself from the mistake. Again, thanks, you do not exist anymore.
I have to get over you, Chad. HA HA HA HA!
Sige. Bored lang ako.
What we've done so far: A LOT.
This was taken in Mozu. A place where we haven't dined-in in soooo long! The rest are here, so click and enjoy!

Even a cigarette can't make me focus. :| I WILL BE DEAD MEAT, YET AGAIN.
I've tried all the strategies that I thought of for effective "studying". Something conducive and efficient. Study table sounded pretty fine for setting a conducive atmosphere and being away from my laptop (approximately 5 feet away from me). And as for being efficient? My study table is right by my messy bed.
My tree bag looks more like a pretty tree now! I wasn't responsible for it, of course! Anyway, I forget about the wonderful bags I have, like the brown Steve Madden purse, a present from Tito Darwin that I haven't used since forever. And the Babila bag from Pop. And the neon green Secossana bag, HOW COULD I EVER FORGET THAT IT GOES INTO MY LIST? HA HA HA HA HA HA.
I HOPE I CAN PULL THIS OFF.

I am still not in the mood to study and it's already past 12. To pump the workings of my mind, I tried researching on Migration (even if RM is out of the domain of my responsibilities and worries). I ended up reading an article entitled, "Engaging Migrant Women for Development in Africa" in the International Organization for Migration (IOM) site. I can never be happier. Aside from considering Migration as an advantage and a key for development, women are considered as one of the most effective and powerful instruments for development. Shall I say girl power? I also found a photo of a beautiful African woman in Flickr.com, which I cannot upload here (I don't know why). I intend to make a poster out of it, cover the walls of the old, annoyingly pink room that Pop chose.

It may be considered as a shotgun interview as Jewel and I have been notified two hours before our scheduled interview. I haven't made my Letter of Intent, had my picture taken for the CV, and all the disaster one could ever think of. It doesn't end there. I am bad with directions--I was just behind the wheel and Jewel told me where to turn. Okay.
Our destination is the Institute for Popular Democracy (IPD) somewhere in Teacher's Village. We went around the area for 40 minutes. Asked about a hundred of people for the directions, went to the City Hall TWICE, got rained on, which resulted in wet brown envelope and dripping hair.
It's all good. We got it! I am just waiting for the formal acceptance. He wants us to start tomorrow.
Please do not mind the grammar and punctuation. I am half asleep as I type.

Who's watching the concert on the 7th? Not me. I got a text message from my cousin, Ahya Robbie, asking who would want to get 2 free tickets: "first one to text gets the tickets!" He texted at exactly 6:30 pm. I read the message at 8:00 pm. :(

Disclaimer: This post was made out of fun and out of mind. Enjoy and please comment on my tagboard!
There's nothing that could ever make me feel better than a cup of coffee. I had no classes today so I went to Starbucks, just a couple of blocks away from home. I was so excited that my Shoulder Sash (made by Mauban's finest couturier, Aling Taning from Bgy. Bagong Pag-asa). So this is what wore to Starbucks today:
I thought that a cup of coffee is the only thing that could make my day complete. But... I found the Boy Scout Neckerchief I ordered from Multiple.com. I thought it ended there, laying glamorously on my bed was the blue vintage coat I ordered from pBay! Oh my, sweetness! I am the happiest girl alive! So, I decided to walk my dog as I am so psyched (and totally cannot wait) to wear them! It cost me a fortune and I am not one to splurge.
What I wore underneath is boring, even for me. What do you think?
Black Tube Top by Natasha, Checkered Araro Pants by Freego Jeans, Scarf worn as belt (thrifted), and Blue Patent Shoes by Sugus.
I finally found the bag ordered from Secossana last week. I haven't gotten a chance to take a picture of it. So here it goes. The neon green color just matches the color of my eyes. Jealous much?
My inspiration for the month is Denisia Torresia. Her Fall collection is superb. She mixes men and women's wear; vintage and modern accessories; and more! I have yet to do my research on her. I am so excited for Friday. I get to interview her. We meet at the first-class mall in the P.I. (Centerpoint) at 12:00 noon-1:00 pm. Soon thereafter, I will accompany her to one of her inspirations, Theta! I am excited as a wild boar. Ten snaps and a million hands down to you!

After calling/bugging a few friends about my mishap earlier, I called Pop (whom I haven't seen for almost a month). Thanks for making me feel better, Pa! Go to Manila naman.
Thanks for making me feel better. You know how bothered I get when these things come up.

If I "Empty" my Trash folder, I'd erase the very last memory of you. WOOOOOH-KAAAY. Where did that come from??? Okay, I've had my "Me" time the whole weekend. It comprises of my very-unlikely-to-happen-this-time movie marathon (watched Rachel Getting Married, Made of Honor, and Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist)--I'd watch Vicky Christina Barcelona BUT duty calls; my never ending pigging out (Cheetos Jalapenos, Coke Light, Pepperoni Bread Sticks, and my homemade Iced Vanilla Latte); and waking up at noon, staying in bed and stink til 5pm HA HA HA HA.
Oh, dear. IE is haunting me. I cannot take it anymore considering I haven't done anything yet (Sorry, Anj). I just like to say it, para naman "I BELONG" ako sa mga blockmates ko dahil alam ko naghihirap sila ngayon.
Naghihingalo na pala printer ko. Ang senseless. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PATRICK.
I ate Danggit and 5 cups of rice for dinner.
Yung "cup", pareho lang sa extra rice ng McDonald's.
