Change of mind.

A while ago I was ranting about how quiet this New Year’s Eve is. But you know, when I went out to buy some chips, I encountered one of the worst firecrackers ever.

Nakakainis coz sa tapat ng store sila magpapaputok. Hindi nga sya lumilipad or anything but the intensity of the explosion is similar to a bomb’s. Sheesh. Nakakainis at nakakabingi. I hate it!

Bakit kasi kailangan ng ground fireworks when we can have aerial ones… like those sa Pyrolympics. I mean, they’re nicer and they light up the sky diba? πŸ™‚ Plus, they won’t do us harm like the ground ones such as plapla, five star, sinturon ni hudas, sawa, etc. Aside from littering the streets afterwards, they can damage properties and EARDRUMS!!! Haay.

Pwede naman kasi na lusis na lang for everyone eh. Diba? ^___^

Plurk It!

Yes… I’m on Plurk now. πŸ˜€ Add me up! And let’s plurk everything up!

According to Colorgenics, this is who I am.

You are striving for a life full of activity and experience and, perhaps even more, an environment where you would be able to forge a close bond with a person who can offer full emotional fulfilment.

You are working extremely hard trying to improve your image in the eyes of others. You are looking for acknowledgement from your peers and those who come into your sphere of influence. You want to be liked, not for what people think of you but for what you really are.

Matters are not progressing as well as you would have hoped and you are having to make concessions – but you still believe that your goals are realistic it’s just that people can’t seem to see your point of view. You know what you want but you’ll only accept suggestions under duress.

You are holding back. You need to find friends in whom you can trust and once they have proved themselves beyond all possible doubt you will be prepared to give them your all. The existing situation is not of your liking – you have an unsatisfied need for mental stimulation with others whose standards are as high as your own. Trying to control your instincts the way you do restricts your ability to open up to others and the way you feel at this time is suggestive of ‘total surrender’. This is not to your liking as you consider such thoughts as weaknesses that need to be overcome. You feel that only by control, controlling your innermost thoughts, are you able to maintain your air of superiority. You want to be admired for yourself alone and not for what you can do or for what you may have done. In essence ‘you need to be needed’ and at the same time ‘you need to need’.

You really like doing what you do and, more than that, you like yourself. Your attitude to work and to life is that ‘If its not fun – then don’t do it’. You want to be liked and respected, not for who you are but for what you are – and it seems to be working.

Hmm… You know what? I kinda agree with this thing. I just can’t believe that by choosing colors in order of preference could make them summarize who I really am. Oh well… It’s weird because the things they said are so true. πŸ™‚

Anyway, wanna try? Click here.

Welcoming the new year…

is fun. And it should be noisy! BANG!

This is probably the quietest December 31 in my whole life. Since I was a kid, this day could be described as busy, noisy, colorful, wonderful, and other nice adjectives that one could think of. πŸ™‚ I mean, this is like the most awaited event after Christmas, right? Hehe.

But today… I woke up kinda late. Took a bath. And went out to have my nails done. πŸ™‚ Just to match the dress I’ll be wearing later. Hehe. When I got home, I ate lunch which was very simple. Chicken balls with rice. Mariah and Mama were already busy preparing tonight’s dinner. I think I’ve got little participation in this one. Well, it’s just right. Haha. I’ve had a big hand during Noche Buena already!!! πŸ˜€

Anyway, we watched some CSI: Season 8 episodes again. I love the last episode even though it was just so sad and the plot was just so open. *sigh* I’m still disappointed with the ending because why do they have to kill Warrick? 😦 It’s just sooo final. I hate it. But I agree with my siblings that it is indeed the best episode in that season.

After watching, we all cleaned the living room and the bedrooms. We’re gonna get some visitors later. Yay! πŸ˜€

I’m so excited coz we’re going to have spaghetti carbonara, kare-kare, dumplings, and graham cake among others. Yippee!!! πŸ˜€ FYI, kare-kare is like my favorite dish!

I gotta go now but before I do that, I’m gonna share with you a nice message:

People engage in relationships to pursue love, friendship, and inspiration. but one true reason why, is that nobody wants his/her life to pass by unnoticed. No matter how successful and accomplished a person may be, it wouldn’t matter if he/she had no one to share his/her experiences with. So thank the people who love you in their own special way, for without them, you are but one unknown person in this world who lives for the sake of living…

Happy yet quite disappointed…

December 30 was a not so productive day. I should have been typing and editing articles but the laptop was not available the whole day. So what the heck? I decided to just finish what needs to be done later… after breakfast. πŸ™‚

So what did I do the whole day? I watched CSI: Season 8. Man, that season totally rocks! Even though there were unsolved cases, the stories were more than A-okay. In fact, I’m getting good at this CSI thing. Maybe that’s because I read a lot of Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman novels… I practically have a great idea on what’s going on in there. Hehe. πŸ˜€ I’d be guessing the story and I’m getting good with my hunches on whodunit. It’s sooo cool I could be a CSI. Or maybe, the storylines were sometimes predictable.

Oh well… I’m just sad that Sara left. And Warrick died. *Oopps. Did I spoil anything for you? :P*

I don’t really have an idea whether it’s still being aired here in the Philippines or if the season’s over… or if it’s still airing, what episode is showing now?

Basta, I’m just so excited to watch Season 9! I’m looking forward to it… Although I wish Sara would come back. I like her!!! πŸ˜€ It’s just really sad about Warrick being dead and all. What a sad life. 😦

Anyway, I’m also quite disappointed with one other thing. I might not be seeing Norman this January because of his work. But I really pray to God that he finds a way to get here. I miss him so much already!!! He called me earlier and lucky me, I was awake to answer it. Lolz. We talked for a bit but he was sick and I wanted him to rest early. And also because he was watching Naruto with his brother and I was watching the last episode of CSI (Season 8) that time. So yeah… we prolly hung up too early. But at least I’m glad that he’s feeling a bit better now and that they’re celebrating New Year in Samar. How cool is that? I’ve always wanted to go places during holidays. They’re lucky they could travel whenever they want.

Me? I’m stuck at home. But that’s okay coz people are coming over later to party at our place anyway. Yay! πŸ˜€

P.S. I realized that I should be blogging more often about my daily activities. Because it’s the only way I could recall a lot of details about my life. πŸ™‚ I realized that when I read my old blog and saw that I blogged about my life in so much detail that… well, through reading my entries was the only way that I’d remember them. Confusing much? It just puzzles me that I seem to have a short-term memory these days. I can’t believe I’d be having a hard time remembering certain events that transpired 2-4 years ago. How could that be possible at my age? Memory gap perhaps? Sheesh. Oh well. Well then, just to preserve my memory, I’d try to blog more about myself and my life. πŸ˜€

And oh yeah… I hope you, my friends, would do the same too. πŸ™‚

Les acclamations Γ  un heureux 2009!
