*currently playing: Marry Me- Train
I am patiently waiting for my McDonalds meal to arrive at this very moment. I ordered nuggets, fries and coke to keep me up while I finish my web design homework.I have been eating non-stop in the past few months especially when I have to stay up late, and I actually liked it because I gained a few pounds. On the healthy side, I went to the gym last Sunday afternoon with my cousin, Jod and my neighbor, Louie, and we worked out together. I'm aiming for a better body figure before my summer vacation officially begins. Guess what? When I got home, I had coffee and some pieces of bread for my afternoon snack, and for dinner, I had Rosemary and Orange Chicken with rice and served with mango juice. What is matakaw? Oh I love food, and I'm not even on a diet. I work out, jog and I eat a lot! :)
Updating my academic status:
Deactivating my Facebook was actually helpful to improve my study habits. I aced my Economics quiz, and I did not even expect to get a perfect score! :) Another thing I have discovered is that, I have to exercise so that I will be productive. I have been loaded with school stuff, but I managed to finish everything because my lazy ass was missing in action (thank God!)
After I do my web design, I shall sleep and jog at 6am. The rest of the day will be dedicated to shopping and bonding with my balikbayan aunt. I still need to work on with my observation report about drivers, but I think that would be a little easy since it's done in pairs.
Before I could actually finish this entry, my meal has already arrived and I'm now enjoying my nuggets and fries! :) Have a nice day! :)

I Want a Break
Sunday, March 6, 2011
It is Sunday once again, and tomorrow comes my least favorite day of the week. :(
Oh how I hate Mondays! My Monday schedule sucks because I got a class from 8am until 6pm with only an hour and a half of break. Just imagine how drained I am during my last class, and most of the time I am tempted to cut it or go to class 30 mins. late because I'm either sleepy or I am pigging out at Animo canteen. :|
I also hate the feeling of neglecting to update my blog. My majors are eating me alive. :| I have been sick for the past two months, on and off, because of stress. Jeez, what more when I am working? Well, probably it would be a different scenario because I am being paid. :P
Since majors are like my life for the whole term, I am starting to dislike what I used to enjoy such as writing. I hate being obliged and expected to submit works before its due. My passion for writing comes naturally, and I would write something that interests me, and not those topics that have nothing to do with my likes and interests. I have been uninspired too lately due to- I really don't know. I cannot explain this feeling, but I know that I'm so lazy all the time. Probably, a good sleep will help me regain my old jolly self. My uninspired self turns out to be very lazy, moody and no time to dress up like I used to. :( Oh Chictopia & Lookbook, I miss you so much, but I have nothing to post because I feel like a freakin' crap with dark circles around my eyes.
My sincerest apologies to those who have experienced my intense mood swings, tantrums, whining and whatever drama of some sort. Everything was brought to you by the 3rd term stress.
Anyway, I am planning to revamp my blog layout, but I still can't find time to do it. Most likely, after 3rd term (which is like 4 weeks to go) Meanwhile, school works are waiting for me. I have to read 109 pages (5 chapters) in one sitting, study for my economics quiz, list down questions for my project interview, and finish my web design homework. :| Hopefully, I could finish everything tonight while I sip on my coffee and munch on some food.
I'm now looking forward to the much awaited season- summer! I can't wait for the term to be over & start hitting the beach with my friends. Before everything else though, I have to work on with my priorities. Therefore I am deactivating my Facebook account tonight and will get back on my dad's birthday. We'll see then if i'll deactivate it again.

We're Growing Old
It was only like yesterday when us girls gathered for Reanne's 18th, and now it's her birthday again. We just had it in her home with friends and her family. I slept over and she drove me home the next day. Japanese foods were served along with the typical birthday foods. I ate the shabu-shabu and california maki, but the sushi and crabs were left untouched by yours truly.
Her cute nephews were present and I was entertained by the youngest. Very talkative, and he is very much like my nephew, Dale.
Happy birthday Reanne! You still look like our friend back in high school- nothing much has changed. :P

After 3 Years
Ands came to Manila for a short visit, while everyone else was busy with school. Was it a wrong timing vacation? Perhaps it was not. All of us, with the exception of one, were present during our much awaited get together. :)
Originally, it was supposed to be a beach/road trip, but due to transportation and financial problems, we have to make another plan. The final plan was to held the get together in my place. They chose to have it in my place because my house is free of everything- free of conservative adults. lol. :P The plan was made 2 days before the actual date- my friends are the best when it comes to last minute planning. :)
We had dinner, beer pong, card games and sleepover, but not everyone slept over. Fun night indeed! :)

Age is Nothing but a Number
High school friend, Cat, and college friend, Maiko turned a year older last January 30, but they had their celebrations a day earlier. Since their respective parties were on the same date, I was too lazy to attend both and I was planning to attend just one. Fortunately, my lazy ass was in the mood to party, despite being under pressure by school stuffs, and I ended up moving from one party to another.
Cat had a dinner celebration with high school friends in their lovely home, & yes, Thursday group was present, but Ced was missing in action because of his dinner with family. We had a little surprise for our dear Cat, and as usual, the group had a last minute natataranta-kami moment. Our surprise was placed at the back of Reanne's car and we had a problem on how we'll move it inside the house. Thank goodness, Cat's mother dearest helped us with everything. :)

Later on, I moved to Maiko's party in Republiq and had a great time with my college friends. I met a bunch of new friends, whom mostly are Maiko's relatives and other friends. Originally, I was supposed to be with Icia, but I don't know why the hell she was not replying (of all the days pa), so I called up the lovely Memesh and we met up outside along with her boyfie, Mike. I arrived just in time- to witness Maiko drunk and dancing with her cute English boy. The guests were mostly drunk- a drunkard's party I suppose, but hey, I wasn't drunk. I just had a shot of Bacardi (i guess) and never had my next shot, because even at Cat's, I was already drinking. Too much alcohol intake is bad, especially if you hardly know the people around. :)
