This is going to explain a lot of things
this is officially my hundredth post in this blog. yey!
one hundred posts after... has something changed?
an exerpt from my first ever blog post:
"he's my bestfriend. i've never been able to use that word save for now. and he'll never be my ex anything.
im over the stage of asking what i did to deserve someone like him. love is not deserved, it is freely given. love is sweetest when received as a surprise. kind of like when you've been a really bad daughter but still your parents say that they're proud of you."
aww. hulaan nga natin kung sino tinutukoy ko dito? hehe. isa lang naman ang lalaki sa buhay ko eh. and up to now, even if we do look like lovers, and even if no other guy dares to come up to me for fear of death by him, we still have that sweetly ambiguous relationship.
but, enough about him, let's talk about me! hehe. can anyone believe that i don't smoke anymore?! it's been four months guys. sure i've fallen by the wayside a couple of times, but in these four months my total won't even reach ten cig sticks. to think i used to smoke ten sticks a day!
so there, that's one thing that's changed, for the better.
but really, the most important change is me going back to God. or more precisely, Him calling me back to His side. did i hear cynical sneers from my UP friends? hehe. it's true. God's really all you need. I couldn't have quit smoking by myself, even if my life depended on it. Remember the times i smoked like a chimney?! Only God gave me the strength to finally give it up.
(I'd like to thank my UJP friend Darlene for starting things. So if you guys have any problem you think is too big for you to take on, ask Darlene for help, she won't refuse you and i'm sure she'll help you find what you've been looking for. Or you can always give me a ring!) :D

Time has flown by so fast. i feel sooo old. "young" people already write in a language i do NOT understand! they omit vowels, use numbers in their words, and use every imaginable shortcut, EVERYTIME. texting has murdered not only English, and not only language, but our communication skills as well!
it's downright horrendous now that i come to think of it. i'm not exempt, i do use text lingo too. and that's the sad part. where the heck did i get the guts to call myself a Journalism major?! i murder the language everytime i text!
so anyway, i do use text lingo, but i use that only while texting (which is not really an excuse). So when i see "illegal contractions" in emails, notes, friendster testimonials, etc. my head asks for a little more time to process the message.
as in nahihirapan talaga akong makaintindi. it's like reading really deep Tagalog. my brain stalls and just dies on me.
other people have absolutely no problem understanding this language. so i guess, i'm the one who has to adjust. ang sarap lang mag "wax- poetic" about keeping the rules of the language and stuff like that. but i can't say that and not be a hypocrite. after all, i do use Taglish.

miss ko na ang mga kaibigan ko sa cmc. miss ko na ang mga tawanan sa ujp tambayan at kwentuhan sa ilalim ng skywalk. that's it. there's no other way to say it. miss ko na ang mga ujpeeps (di ko na ieenumerate, baka may makalimutan pa ako.)
pero *move on* na raw ako e.
noooo. gusto ko ulit maglaro ng mga insane games sa tambayan *nila*, makinig sa mga useless information nina frank at lawrence, makipag laugh trip kina kirk at adan. i'd gladly trade the whole corporate world for this.
now i perfectly understand frank's logic. :)

okay, so i came from a job interview, and my feet hurt like hell. i wore my pointy shoes again, and as expected, they squeezed my toes to near death.
my potential boss might be lurking around (she's also a blogger and i gave her my url), but can i still say that i liked the company and the job very much. i'd actually want to work there, more than i'd like to work at pdi.
i mean, i'd love to work at pdi, kate and julie are there. plus i do have to give back to them since they payed for my tuition and all. But i don't think i'm ready yet. ang laki kasi ng pdi, ang tense pa ng trabaho
. filgifts on the other hand, feels like the right fit. i might not have given the best impression back there, but i really hope they see that i am excited, and even equipped, to work there.
yes, i am back. as if i'm expecting heavy traffic to notice. apologies, of course, to the people who worried when i suddenly disappeared from the scene. nag "soul- searching"
lang po. :)

An interview from Kate:
1) where the hell are you and what have you been up to lately? :)
How apt. I'm at home right now, and i've just about finished with my quarter life crisis. Everything comes early to me, ya know. (I'm only 19). I'm about to start working.
2) how was summer? :)
My summer was fine. I swam alot, though only in the clubhouse. There was no vacation for me. I had my STS under Arcilla, who even though he's (they say) the best, is still an impossible sexist conservative (pig). Also had my Psych 101 with Van Heugten. I was 99.9% nicotine free the whole summer, having smoked only a total of 3 cigarette sticks.
3) anong masasabi mo kay mikey arroyo?
I don't want to judge based on how the media portrays him. I've been studying the media and so i know that it can be terribly unfair at times. But i do have to answer this so: i think he's a little bit dim (bobo
), and a whole lot arrogant. And i believe he's on the take.
4) best lessons learned in college?
People make life interesting. Learn to deal with yourself first before you try to deal with others. Grades don't measure squat. Smile only when you mean it. Laughter is good.
5) predictions for the next 4.5 years.
Kate, we will be an item. (!!!) I don't know. Okay, here goes: GMA won't be president anymore!The rules:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your LJ/ blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
