Of Foiled Plans and Late-night Chats

12.30.09 | Wednesday

As if I'm not extremely bummed out at home, me and my friend Donna had to cancel our night-out at Eastwood to watch The Bloomfields' first performance at that venue with their new member Dino Pascual. (Just to clarify things up, the members' line-up are: Rocky, Louie, Lakan and Dino).

So I had no choice but to spend my night baking two batches of brownies, fix some stuff (because it's bad karma DAW if you welcome the year ahead with an untidy home), and wash an endless pile of dishes.

How nice. O_______o

But good great things always come at the end, surprisingly. Let's enumerate again, shall we?
  1. I was able to make the microphone work on my PC for Skype conferences.
  2. Shared some good hearty laughs with my two closest pals, Caren and Haeja. (Yes Haeja, you win... again. Caren, thou shall not make fun of others... haha!)
  3. Hmm. I think I'd love to keep this a secret (kill joy ako, I know!)
Okay, that's all for now because I'm in the mood to help out in the kitchen today. It's my brother's birthday today! Hooray to our forever love-hate relationship! Hahaha!

I'm not so sure if I can still make another post before 2009 ends so I'd like to great ya'll...

See you all in 2010!

Hope and Faith, baby!

FINALLY, I'm happy.

Didn't I tell you from my last post that I truly believe this season is that of perpetual hope? And I'm glad I'm right! It only took one particular e-mail to put a lasting smile on my face.

Merci beaucoup.
(You know who you are~ ^^,)

Next stop, BLOOMFIELDS GIG! Weee!

'Tis the Season, But I'm not Jolly!

Hello world!

Uh-huh, let's see... I haven't updated for more than a month already. The past month has LITERALLY been a whirlwind of events --- and I can't think of a more appropriate way of saying it.

  • I've been physically unhealthy. I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks, then a week on cough meds. And now I'm back on antibiotics again. Bummer!
  • I've been physically- and mentally-drained from school.
  • I've been to one-too-many events in school. Either attended or performed.
  • I've been going home late by saying "Please fetch me at 9 or 9:30 or 10:00 pm. My class ends at 5 (which is true), and my choir practice ends late (which is not always true). After that I'll be eating dinner with my friends (which is, again, not always true. We drink booze or hang out for coffee)" - that kind of excuse.
  • I've cut classes one-too-many times. I'm either working for my various school orgs or just stays somewhere. Class is boring, I'd rather let my books do the talking!
  • I've been stalked at, looked at, checked out and so on. I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE IT. (PS: I don't bite! Haha!)
  • I've been saddened by the sudden 'break-up' of one of my favorite local band. And no, I don't think there's any more room for reconciliation.

And lately:
  • I'm PMS-ing on Christmas day... hooray!
  • I can't drink booze at home (and can't even blurt out my frustration verbally).
  • Earlier this day, I watched a horror movie. Ironic.
  • I miss someone BADLY, and I don't know why.
  • ... and I currently hate watching cheesy chic flicks/love stories just 'coz it makes me miss that person more. AND NO, IT'S NOT SOMEONE YOU KNOW (whoever's reading this - ask my friend Caren, okay?)

Sorry, ma-drama. ANYWAY.

Despite all the craziness I've been doing lately, I feel good. HELL YEAH, I'M GOOD!!!

Looking back, I never thought I'd be where I am now: stronger than ever in all aspects, resilient, forgiving BUT never-ever forgetting. And yes people, I think I somehow shed that nonsense "good girl image" I've donned since Freshman year.

Yes, I drink booze.
No, I don't get hella drunk.
No, I don't smoke.
No, I don't do drugs.

But there's just one problem I'm facing now: I AM BORED out of my wits at home. I feel like I'm locked up in an unhappy place. All I ever did since the 20th was sleep for 12 hours a day, go online, watch TV shows, and go on a last-minute Christmas shopping which wasn't that tiring considering that I only have less than 20 people on my list.

For the first time in the last 4 years, I never thought I'd say that my Christmas right now just doesn't feel right. It doesn't, really. I may not know why, but something's really different. Even the simple "Noche Buena" felt ritualistic to me; no fun at all.

What is happening?!? Ugggghh.

But to all those out there, HAPPY CHRISTMAS! I'm still hoping for a sudden turn of events. Anyway it's the season of perpetual hope, right?
