Here's another shared experience from the same source (J-14) but this time is coming from Yikes! Totally Embarrassing Moments section.

Way back in our school days, some of us have experienced cutting out of class especially those happy-go-lucky students. Worrying nothing with the things that matter. Neither getting caught by the teachers and parents nor getting poor with the academics. It's a good experience though. But was it really worth it? I mean, have you really enjoyed the experience from cutting out of class? Because such deed usually comes with a price.

Like this....

I Flashed the Senior Boys!!

It had been raining for weeks, so when a sunny day came along, my friends and I decided to cut out of school early and go to the park. We were kinda conspicuous in our school uniforms, but we took a chance that no one would notice. We played on the swings and slide and had a blast. The good news is that we didn't get caught, but cutting did come with a price. As I hung upside down from the monkey bars, my uniform skirt flipped up exposing my undies, then we heard : "Shouldn't you be in class?" I whipped around to see a bunch of senior guys from our school. They cut to play basketball, but little did they know they'd get a show, too! That's the last time I cut school - it only leads to trouble! -- Suzie --

So, how was yours?

Finally!! Last night, I got a chance to stuff my sister's magazines out of her cabinet. When at home, I spend most of my time hanging outside coz it is more relaxing staying there. You know, inhaling the fresh air and it's kinda hot inside the house also. But last night, it was raining so I have no choice but to stay inside. So what I did was to think of something that I should do to make my indoor life enjoyable. And so I ended up flicking through the pages of the magazines and find some interesting articles. And you're gonna read one of those below.

The Snob Became a Fashion Victim!

Marla - one of the snobbiest girls in my class - always puts other people down for wearing clothes that aren't designer labels. Once, she made fun of me for wearing a hand-me-down shirt from my older sister. "That so 2003", she snipped. What nerve! I finally got back at marla during a charity fashion show for school. The Paris Hilton-wannabe was backstage getting ready to model an expensive gown, but I was the one in charge of making sure everything on her pinned properly. Before she went on the runway, I "accidentally" left a few seams loose. When Marla strutted her stuff, the whole dress came apart. Everybody could see her underwear! I couldn't help but chuckle, "That diva just went from classy to trashy!" -- Taryn --



Are you bored? I mean, are you already bored visiting my blog? Well, with or without your answer to this question, I know. I know you are. Coz I myself too agree that my blog is getting boring and boring each day. I hope I'll be able to exert much effort and bring it back to life. But I just can't. I was suppose to borrow my sister's magazines and see if I can find something from there to be posted and try to make a difference to get your interest back again with my blog. But then again, I hadn't. The reasons?

Here we go.

I didn't care to wake up early last saturday for reasons. I intended to get enough sleep as much as I could because I went home late last friday. Some of my colleagues invited me to join and come with them with their simple amusement. I had fun. Thanks to them. And also, my appointment with friends was still hours away.

I just watched the incomplete episodes of Gossip Girl the whole morning. I didn't even notice that lunch has completely prepared and served. I was so fixated with what I was watching. I tried to be productive at the afternoon by doing some household but I slept instead. And as a result, I was approximately 45 minutes late with my meeting with friends. I won't talk more about whatever follows on that saturday afternoon coz I know my friend Molit will soon be posting more of it. So I'll let her take over it.

Sunday is again a family day. We went to church together, have a family dinner and had a last full show of Quantum of Solace. That's all. All is more of the same.

Till my next post.

busy man ko oi!!

I was planning to write a new personal post before I came across Czyrel's blog. I didn't expect the blog to have a new post because she was too busy with her job for months. But still visited it in case there is something new with her blog. And there really is. It's a tag.

She never named particular bloggers to be tagged but she did mention that anyone can grab the tag as long as one thinks that s/he is a friend of her. hahaha!

Hhhmmm...well, I'm not pretty sure with the kind of friendship we have but I think we're friends.hehe. So I grab it!!

Some of you may believe about this tag and some of you may not. Just having it a try in case you find it interesting when you visit here in my blog. I myself find this kind of thing interesting sometimes but don't bother to post or share it with anyone. I just simply read it.

Again, i've been trying to think of anything sensible. A new post. But no matter how hard I try, I didn't come up with anything. Sometimes I have my mind full of brilliant ideas and good things to write about but oftentimes there is none. Almost empty. Maybe it all depends on the things that are running through your head at a certain time. It might be so nice and interesting that you get too excited about it and then you cannot wait any longer to publish it. And if its the other way around, you just can't have the will to write and post even just a little from it. Maybe that is how it is. Just maybe.

Last week was such a busy week. I was bombarded with a lot of urgent tasks up to the last day. The last day, friday, was actually the busiest and its been a long day. My client wanted me to get all the tasks done within that week for a necessary reason. Maybe all those audio files are scheduled to be published on that day.

At first, I was reluctant to inform my client that I surely won't be able to finish my work within the alloted time for I didn't want to render an overtime as I wasn't feeling well. I was a bit dizzy then as though I'll stumble down if I attempted to stand up. Don't know why. That was a sudden feeling. But eventually, I informed my client about the limited time I got and asked him if he wanted me to work overtime. Unfortunately he said yes. So I had no choice but to do what I'm told. It just took me three hours to finish editing the audios but I was having trouble sending the last file which was a 7.35mb audio file. I thought it would only take me a couple of minutes to wait before getting myself ready to go home. But it took an hour before the file successfully uploaded. So I had a total of four hours overtime.

Since it was night shift's agents turn to be on duty, I decided to stay a little longer and waited some of my friends to arrive coz I wanted to see and have a little chat with them also. It was such a stressful night but I still managed to go home with a smile in my face. When I got home, I retired myself to bed exhausted.

The season 4 of prison break is about to air at CS (or has it been aired already?) and I hadn't get a chance to watch the season 3 for several reasons until yesterday (sunday).

I was glad that my sister didn't go anywhere as she usually out on sundays and seem to have no time staying at home at all. Since we both haven't watched the full version of Prison Break Season 3 yet, we decided to watch it together. Me and my iblings are so into this amazing television series.

Finally!! Can't wait to watch the season 4. I'm going to watch every episode of it spontaneously.

General Prison Break Season 3 Plotline:

Just when they thought they were out, they are pulled back in - for the most dangerous escape ever. Prison Break Season 3 finds Michael Scofield wrongly incarcerated in Sona, a hellish Panamanian prison where there are no rules, no guards and no escape.

Michael soon discovers that he was purposely placed in Sona to engineer another daring and seemingly impossible prison break - this time in order to free Whistler, a mysterious inmate hiding within the prison’s sewer system. Sona (inspired by the actual Carandiru Prison in Brazil) is unlike any American prison. A murderous riot among the inmates has driven all guards and authorities from the premises, leaving the prison with its own warped hierarchy and code of ethics created and ruled by vicious drug kingpin Lechero. Once inside Sona, Michael must avert Lechero’s suspicions and wrath while protecting himself from a trio of enemies: Alex Mahone, the renegade FBI agent who was revealed to be involved with The Company; Brad Bellick, the former Fox River prison-guard-turned-hapless-bounty-hunter; and the one-handed, homicidal pedophile Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell- making Michael’s plans for escape even more difficult and complicated.

With the tables turned this time around, Lincoln must work outside the prison walls to help pull off the escape, as well as rescue his kidnapped son, LJ, and Michael’s true love, Sara Tancredi. In Panama, Lincoln is reunited with fellow Fox River escapee Fernando Sucre and becomes involved with two beautiful women who will prove to be instrumental to the break - Susan B. Anthony, a cool and deadly operative for The Company; and Sofia, Whistler’s innocent girlfriend who is unaware of the danger she is about to encounter. With the clock ticking, Michael and Lincoln must figure out a way to reunite with their loved ones, bring down The Company and engineer the most thrilling prison break yet.

It's always been like this. From the very start, I know I won't be that active in blogging. I always wait for something that will pop into my mind or will just wait if I'm into something. I don't even bother myself to search for an article to share with that might catch anyone's interest. Well, this is how I exactly expected about this thing. I seem to have no motivation on this.

I've been feeling so bored these days that sometimes all I want to do is play and listen to the music. Some of the music I have here in my playlist are unknown to me and quite an old ones. So I play the few latest hit songs I got repeatedly till I got fed-up. What I did was, I searched a band name I knew and then played the music that I never been heard before. One of the band name I found is the Vertical Horizon which is somewhat a cool band for me. I only knew a few of their songs (best i ever had, you're a god, and everything you want). I tried to play their song I'm Still Here and liked it immediately. Maybe this is just one of their old hits but it is so new to me. And this became one of my favorite music at the moment.

I'm Still Here

I found the pieces in my hand
They were always there
It just took some time for me to understand
You gave me words I just can't say
So if nothing else
I'll just hold on while you drift away
Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow
The rivers flow
Where you are, "I'll" never know
But I'm still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who's gone
And I'm still here
Still here

I've seen the ashes in my heart
I smile the widest
When I cry inside and my insides blow apart
I tried to wear another face
Just to make you proud
Just to make you put me in my place
But everything you wanted from me
Is everything that I could never be

The cities grow
The rivers flow
Where you are, "I'll" never know
But I'm still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who's gone
And I'm still here

Maybe tonight
It's gonna be alright
I will get better
Maybe today
It's gonna be okay
I will remember

I held the pieces of my soul
I was shattered and I wanted you to come and make me whole
Then I saw you yesterday
But you didn't notice
And you just walked away
Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow
The rivers flow
Where you are, "I'll" never know
But I'm still here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who's gone
And I'm still here
The lights go out, the bridges burn
Once you're gone, you can't return
But I'm still here
Remember how you used to say I'd be the one to run away
But I'm still here

It's been so long since the last time i posted something personal here. Well I think I should care to write a little update about me. At least something about my weekend.

Saturday is a time for myself. Whenever I have things concerning with myself alone, I always have them set on saturdays, whatever they are. It could be hanging out with friends, go shopping with my sister, going to the dentist, get a hair cut and a whole lot personal things. Important or non-important.

For the past weeks, I was so preoccupied with something. I won't go into details anymore since I want to just keep it to myself. I have to deal with it alone. As in all by myself. So last Saturday, I went and visited my friend to put an end to what has been bothering me all these days. I was so lucky to have this friend who cared to do me a favor. That was just a very simple deed but served me a huge help. Really. And I hope it is really over now.

Enough of my Saturday. Let's get going with my Sunday.

As early as 8 in the morning, the computer has already turned on for me to play a game. We used to attend and hear the 9am mass but it's quite different this time due to my father's condition. We switch it to 4:30 mass. So I spent two hours playing until my little sis got up from bed. I can't play any longer as my father wanted to watch TV so I chose to finish the Gossip Girl book which I kept reading last week. As soon as I finished reading it, I preferred to sleep and didn't eat my lunch cause I seemed to feel so full. Well, it happened that I ate my breakfast late.

Before it hits 4 o'clock, my little sis went outside and hailed a taxi and we headed to the church so we get there early. That afternoon, we already set a plan to go out and have a family dinner. We invited my brother's girlfriend since we already treated her as a family member. It was a one nice and fun dinner. With talks and laughters. Well.... as always!!

We immediately went home after the dinner and we spent more hours together watching a movie.

We had a great time together!!

I'm a money conscious person and I think I should know how to budget wisely and must know where all my money go. I already made a list which I call it myself as a Priority List to perused with everytime I receive my salary. And I always remind myself to stick with that list of budget to be in check with every cent of my money. But the thing is, I tend to forget and neglect this list at times. And I must say that not taking seriously and not really sticking to that priority list is indeed no use at all.

If you want to handle your money wisely, follow these steps:

- Spend less than you make.
- Keep paperwork (receipts, cancelled checks, credit card statements)
- Beware of credit card debt.
- Resist wasteful habits.
- Shop wisely.
- Pay cash.
- Use critical thinking when considering an expensive purchase.
- Exchange room and board for work.
- Stay healthy.
- Conserve energy.
- Get a job.
- Get help if you're in financial trouble.
- Don't gamble.

Hope this helps you and will lead you to a more effective budgeting.

Thanks to my friend Jean for this very kind message.

And now, I want to say this also to my fellow bloggers.

Thanks to Amor, Dennis and Orellie for this tag. This post is way too late as I can't figure out of what am I going to share. And now I finally made it.

So here we go....

  • My friends (insane friends) baptized me with the name Chai and I'm being called with different nicknames at home.
  • Most of my friends and acquaintances often perceived me as maldita or mataray. Especially at their first impression.
  • I've been a spoiled brat until the age of 7 only cause I was the youngest then.
  • I love color white.
  • I'm choosy with friends.
  • I'm a little impatient.
  • I can keep secrets.
  • I love music.

I love the blogs of these people and I'm glad to pass this award onto them! All they need to do is to leave the following message on their post when they pass the award on to their chosen eight bloggers.

They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut or that they propagate? Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this.

I want to thank to my best buddies Bojoy and Molit for giving me this award.

And now, I want to pass this friendship award to my chosen awardees (friends). I want to extend my friendship with these people the kind of friendship I am sharing with my best friends (Hazel, Molit, Joy, Mae).

P.S -- sa sunod nalang ang uban kay perting daghana. Bahin-bahin lang.

This morning, once I got connected to the internet, I visited blogs ramdomly from my list and all of which have discussed the same topic and it's no surprise. Obviously it's about the diagnostic level-up exam we had taken yesterday (sunday). The ones who posted about the exams shared common feelings like frustration, anxiety, fear and the like. Well, I must say I also feel the same. I mean, who doesn't?

I arrived just in time and was almost late yesterday. I didn't get the chance to relax and prepare myself before taking the exam. And I blame the jeepney driver for that. I was so pissed off with him. But even if I got the chance to, I think it won't make any difference. The exam i took was really a hard one for me. I don't even Know a single thing especially on the multiple choice. Maybe because of the anxiety I felt that I couldn't read the words properly. I was sitting with my eyes fixated on the screen disbelievingly. I can't believe that was happening. But there's no escape from here. I have to take every exam that I have to go through or whatever the company requires.

I was a tad relieved when the last part of the exam comes to an end. But that relief has short lived when the manager further announced the vocal exam. Oh my goodness! There is a part two of the exam that has yet to come.

I'm not that excited to know the result, to be honest.

Good luck to all of us!!

Stubborn and hard-hearted -- Uuhmmm.... sa enemies YES, I am. I'm a good person but I'm not a saint.

Ambitious and serious -- Not that serious, i think. I know how to cheer people up somehow.

Loves to teach and be taught -- It all depends! Only on the things I want/like in particular.

Always looking at people's flaws and weaknesses -- Not exactly. Observant is more like it.

Likes to criticize -- Seldom.

Hardworking and productive -- I don't think so. Right, sometimes yes, sometimes not.

Smart, neat and organized -- Admittedly, I'm not that smart (50 /50). But I am neat and organized. Am I? You think so?

Sensitive and has deep thoughts -- Very much true. Need not to explain.

Knows how to make others happy -- Yes, of course. Pero depende gihapon sa tao.

Quiet unless excited or tensed -- Not sure.

Rather reserved -- People who knew me well said I am. I guess it's true.

Highly attentive -- Sometimes yes, sometimes not

Resistant to illnesses but prone to colds -- Resistant to both illnesses and colds. Buyag...buyag...buyag...

Romantic but has difficulties expressing love -- True.

Loyal -- True.

Has great social abilities yet easily jealous -- Kind of true.

Very Stubborn and money cautious -- Please exclude the word VERY. My family, friends and my previous colleagues said I am kuripot. Dili man pud sa ingon (hehe, deffensive?). Alangan kung wala gyud diay ko kwarta beh. Magpaka-naa ko? huh? Aw, wala ko nasuko ha. It's just that I'm not a materialistic person. I only buy things that are important and I can enjoy with. I'm not more into accessories, I don't follow every trend and I don't even spend on make-ups. Pero girl gyud ko ha?! Ayaw gyud intawon ko ninyo dudahi. I spend if it is necessary. I spend for food if I'm hungry. Whatever I want to eat. Dili ko kuripot when it comes to food but only for a reasonable price. Bahala medyo kamahalan as long as it satisfies my growling stomach. Og syempre....dili mawala ang budget para sa laag. I won't let my thriftiness affect my happiness. Tama ba ni ako inenglis? In short.... dili ko OA nga pagka-kuripot. ok? Or maybe, I'm not kuripot after all. What do you think, dili noh?! Tubag.

Photos above were taken while having a good time with my college friends over the last two weekends. It felt so good hanging out with them again after a long time. We finally seen each other again and really had fun together.

It seems so impossible this time to catch with them since we're already separated by time living with different lives with different priorities.

I just realized how much i miss being with them. Although the communication is still there letting each other know that we're making way to keep in touch through text messages or online chat, it's really different when you're personally talking, cracking jokes and laughing hysterically together like the old times.

We are planning to have a gathering this coming weekend coz our friend from Cebu will be coming home. And I'm really looking forward to it.

Those weeks had gone great. But what about this coming weekend? Will it still be as fun as the last ones? Will it turn out the way I want it to be? I hope so.

We'll see...

No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those
who are throughout persuaded of each other's worth.

I just want to thank Amor and Orellie for including me on the list of their chosen few awardees. Thank you for the blog visit, for the comments and for the messages. Dunno what else to say. Just thanks to you both.

I'm also sharing this award to you all especially to Aubrey and Hazel =)

It's been awhile...

I didn't have the appetite to post anything in my blog for weeks. It's not that I didn't know what to post but there was actually a reason why. I just don't feel like posting not even my daily experiences. But it doesn't matter anymore. Now I'm trying to get back with myself again. I'll try not to be distracted by anything that would hinder me from posting here. It's not that I'm promising but atleast I'll try.

You may wonder why but I'd rather keep it to myself. Coz I don't even feel like sharing (haha!). But anyway, everything's fine. That's all that matters.

Hello everyone!! After how many days of silence, I'm back!

I have here another interesting piece taken from one of my little sister's magazines, the J-14. I took this from the Most Embarassing Moments section.

I hope you didn't experience the same...

I was hanging with my friend Melissa and her hot, hot brother Jason one night at her house, eating nachos and bean dip, drinking soda and listening to the radio. The Gwen Stefani song came on, and we all started jumping around. Melissa and Jason are always horsing around, and I joined in - singing along "Watchu waiting, watchu waiting, watchu waiting, watchu waiting for!!!" on Jason's back - but as soon as I did, the loudest fart in the world escaped from my butt! Our music was loud but my fart was louder. Jason immediately threw me off his back. "Ewwww!" he said, "that was disgusting -it felt warm!" Melissa collapsed in a fit of giggles, as Jason went to his room to change his shirt, I was too embarassed to look Jason in the eye, so I left. Now whenever that song comes on the radio, I have to change the station! - Naomi

In this post, you may or may not already knew some of these informations.

These are taken from a K-ZONE magazine, a kid magazine, that has this section entitled "Did you know?" which I am using as a title of this post.

I only chose a few. So here we go!

Last week was a very busy week. And my work made me feel a bit exhausted. During the workweek, while busy doing my task, I was also busy thinking of the best thing to do in celebrating my father's birthday on July 6. I've been longing to have a big celebration for him but it costs much and a tiresome one. You know, preparing everything for the actual day and entertaining the guests. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to come up with the best alternative celebration. I made a communication with my sister in Cebu to know if there's an ideal celebration coming from her but there was none either. So me and my siblings decided to go on with the usual thing as we had celebrated the father's day and we've been thinking also to just have a family dinner at the restaurant after attending the mass. It was kinda weird of my eldest sister to only show a little interest for this occasion. Well maybe she was just busy with her work or something. But I still can't understand and I wonder why.

It was thursday then when my father mentioned to me about us going to have a grocery on saturday and we did exactly as he planned. We were about to head to the counter with my little sister while my father was looking something somewhere round the grocery when she heard a phone call coming from her purse and found out that it was from unregistered number but she missed to answer it. I immediately checked my cellphone in to know if it is registered in it. And it indeed is and it was my eldest sister's boyfriend from cebu. He was forced to dial our number when he failed to contact my sister for whatever reason. We had a short conversation when he called us up again asking where my sister was and I was like "What?! Isn't my sister with you? Is she in davao?" And he replied "Didn't she tell you that she's coming to davao?" trying to sound nonchalant. Ok, I get it. It was supposed to be a surprise. But yes, we were surprised. Luckily, my father wasn't there to here the conversation we just had. It was a sort of a perfect timing when the phone call ended before my father saw me coming towards him. Because I was about to look for him when I received the call. Me and my sister act as though we hadn't received a call from anyone.

Me and my father went home ahead of my little sister coz she wanted to go to an internet cafe. When we arrive at home, I was no longer surprised seeing my sister standing in front of me. But my father was. As he climbed up the house, it was my eldest sister whom he has seen first before anyone else which really taken him by surprise. And he can't help himself from smiling while looking at my sister disbelievingly.

On sunday, my eldest brother who usually attends at the last mass made it early last sunday to give himself enough time to prepare in the afternoon for our dinner for the celebration. While me and my sisters heard the mass at four in the afternoon with our father. At the evening, I text my mother to ask how she was doing and reminded her also that it was my father's birthday and we talked about it. Later on, we set the food on the dining table together with my siblings happily and we were talking and laughing while doing so. As always! It took quite a while after the dinner when my mother called and she speak to each of us including my brother's girlfriend whom we considered already as part of our family. And drinking of wine will always be the last part of the celebration.

It was a very simple yet very special birthday celebration.

I slept at 1am already which caused me sleepy at work yesterday. As me and my other two sisters had to leave the house for work and school, we said goodbye to our eldest sister coz she has to fly back to cebu also.

It's been a while since my last post. Well, I was so busy for the last two weeks with my work. And I couldn't think of any interesting piece to be posted.

I'm so sleepy today. I didn't have much sleep last week and I slept late last night. I don't want to focus on my task today and all I want to do is to get some sleep.

I wanted to create a short post on how my weekend goes but I can't seem to think properly. I don't even know how to start it. Maybe I will just try later this day or maybe tomorrow. What I'm going to post is actually the reason why I feel so sleepy and tired today. Its about what happened last saturday and yesterday. I really hope I can do create the post tomorrow and won't feel tired anymore.

I still haven't recovered myself from sleepiness since the day i got home from Panabo City with my colleagues. Though I tried to sleep early last night, I was once again swayed by my little sister to watch the Gossip Girl series. And to make it worse, I still have to charge the digicam battery so that I can bring with me the pictures we had taken in Panabo and give it to my friends. Atleast I manage to do my task despite of what im feeling right now and atleast I have chatmates that make me feel a bit alive. But not until my client sent me an urgent task. Here's this another three audios that need editing and should place them on top of my priority for it must be published on thursday. Although I'm not so pleased for having an urgent task, I am somehow thankful that each of them only has a short duration of time which makes me edit them easier. But still, that doesn't change the fact that I'm sleepy and I need to focus on my task.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Hopefully I can get over with the last weekend and get my energy back and be excited with the coming weekend for another fun.

My Sunday life started off as early as dawn. Yes, I said it right. I was awaken by my father at around 2 in the morning to look after my brother who got pissed. Being sure that I couldn't do it alone, I decided to ask assistance from my elder sis. I don't know what's gotten into my brother when he should manage himself not to get drunk for atleast in my father's day. It's almost 4am when he finally fallen asleep leaving us feeling releived and so we also go back to sleep.

He was supposed to go to the market early because we planned to have the Father's day celebrated at lunch. But as expected, he didn't make it. My father and my youngest sister are the ones who woke up early preparing themselves for church. We usually attend and hear the mass together but me and my elder sis weren't able to come with them for not having enough sleep. My father started to think we totally forgotten about his special day and never even bother to prepare something for him. Well, what else could he be thinking if that was the case? So I was hoping that my brother will feel better as soon as possible so that atleast we can make it up at dinner. And thank God we did!! We ate a little late coz we waited for my sister from attending the mass and for dropping by at the mall. When dinner was over, we drink wine with my sibs and my brother's GF who brought the wine. I think its the wine that caused me headache today. But its ok...for once in a while.hehe. I drink occasionally lang naman...

Well, Father's day wasn't really as good as with that of our mother's day. The celebration we had with our mother's day was full of surprises. I mean, we really planned it thoroughly. With ballons, cakes, flowers from my father and brother, video making and picture takings and all that. And most especially, almost all of the family member was there. It would've been a lot happier and funnier if my second brother was there. Knowing that aside from being a good person, he also has a great sense of humor. I know its the thought that really counts but its different when you celebrating something special with ALL the family members are there. Segi lang, hulat nalang ko sa December 2009.hehe

That makes my two days break!!

I always look forward in every weekend that comes. But last week is different. There's nothing to look forward to except that we were planning to have a simple celebration on father's day. There are also many things running through my head since the month of june started. Aside from being tired thinking about my unending audio editing task, I think about something that I've been planning for a few months now. Though I've finally made it real, there are still other things that need to be considered and be fixed since this is not just a little something and it involves money. And this is one of the reasons why there's only have little amount of money left for me that I should budget wisely until the next pay day.

It's a good thing that my youngest sister borrowed a Gossip Girl DVD from one of her friends which we enjoyed watching with my two other siblings (bro & sis) on friday night. Actually, my little sis asked me the night before to accompany her watch this DVD being afraid that father may not allow her to watch Gossip Girl because of some adult scenes. Knowing also that its my youngest sis who asked me for a favor, I just can't say no!

I wasn't really excited about watching Gossip Girl because I thought its just another boring television series or maybe its just similar to other series about friendship as Dawson's creek. But I was wrong. Once I get into it, I suddenly got interested on it. I find it very nice. At first, I was only attracted to the material things they posses and the comfortable life they have. And also with their good looks especially with Nate who really looks stunning and his gorgeous girlfriend, Blair, wearing her fashionable dresses. But as we continue to watch the whole season 1, I realized that there's a story behind their fabulous wealthy life. It's about jealousy, betrayal, love, hate, friendship, family, and life. A crazy life!! We were not able to finish it on friday night so we played it again on saturday afternoon. Seems like it turns out to be one of my fave TV series.

Some define success as Donald Trump and all his wealth. Others define it as the parents who raised a solid family on one meager income. Before you can achieve success yourself, you have to determine what your definition of success is, be it a brilliant career, good health, strong spiritual beliefs, emotional stability, the luxury of time, financial freedom, or a combination of several factors.

If you know you need to restart yourself but feel like you’re stuck in a rut, think about your values, your strengths and weaknesses. What is most important to you? The answers to these questions will help you on your way to defining success on your own terms. We’ve compiled a list of some of the traits of highly successful people. See how you can implement them in your own life.

Highly successful people …

  1. … believe. Successful people have faith in their goals, believe in themselves, and visualize the path to success. They step back and reevaluate every now and then to make sure the direction in which they’re headed is the direction they still want to go.
  2. … plan. Successful people determine what kind of success they want and how they see it happening. They admit their weaknesses, find ways to overcome them, improve themselves, and go after their goals.
  3. ... take action. Nothing on the route to success will change until a move is made to alter it personally. Successful people ask questions and figure out why one method worked or why it did not. They are aware of what is happening on their path.

Im in an internet cafe right now with my sister. I actually don't know what else to do after finishing my main purpose why im here. And all of a sudden, I came up with this idea of creating my own blog since i haven't made one. I've been planning of creating my own blog for a couple of months now but the problem is I was kind of confuse whether to pursue it or not. Why???? It's simply because Im not used to it. I mean im not used with sharing my thoughts and feelings to the public. Im a type of person who just talk much only to the chosen few (my close friends). But on the other hand, I want to give it a try also. So here it is!! I finally made it. Think I'm gonna give myself a reward for this (Wah!!)

I'm hoping to see something different in this blog of mine. That, if laziness won't hit me!
