prom woes

As of tomorrow, things will probably be different. Tomorrow, all the stars, celebrities, paparazzi and those wannabes bring come together in an event so glamorous that even Oscar will be green with envy. No, it isn't the Oscars. Scratch the thought of the BAFTA. Ladies and gentlemen...
I'm talking about my first prom. (I was being sarcastic when I said stars will be there.)
Well, Candy has their prom special, 2Bu has sections devoted to prom (I totally digged their section on attires the guys can wear), and every friggin' mag or newspaper which cares has these articles devoted to girl's gowns, make-up tips, ugly models, the list goes on forever....
So I thought, why not have a post dedicated to the event which everybody (well, my classmates) can't stop talking about? You see, at my school, and I guess every other school who cares, The JS prom is synonymous to gowns, glitz, glamour, transformation, and all things social in nature. But, the main question is, WHAT PROM?
You see, although we WERE supposed to practice our routine of the JS, we didn't even get a chance to practice with our partners for God's sake. They said we were going to have a night dedicated to social dances (bye bye disco), but did we actually get a chance to properly practice with all the things ready, such as positions, and most importantly PARTNERS!.
Incidentally, we did get to get a feel on what these dances might be, courtesy of our PE teacher. No, it's not the girl, it's the guy. I feel a tingling sensation coming on....(Ohhhh.....)...Mr Erwin "Shake that booty" Pelayo, gladly showed us cha cha, swing and waltz. Who knew a man of that caliber could move with so much grace that resembled the moves of those professional DI's? Well, you may ask, "sure, but the feeling of prom must be obvious as of now?". My answer: NO! It was just this lunch time that I said to Jad Jad that I really couldn't believe that prom would be tomorrow! (And to cap it all of...My mom and Dad aren't here). So here I am, stuck.
What's on my mind right now: To shave or not to shave?, How the hell am I supposed to use the friggin' tie?, was the gate pass for us or for the sundo? I wasn't listneing kasi eh.
Am I still going to post a valentine article on my blog?? I can't believe I'm going to dance with her!, Should I ask her to dance?, If my partner is going to go to the CR, am I still going to go with her until the outside? AHHHHH!!!!
What's on my heart right now: "Will I ask her to dance with me?" hearbeat...heartbeat...heartbeat..... prom.......uhh......ok?
can someone relate?

Call me a frustrated fan

In it's first season...I was never hooked until the remaining weeks they had left. I never actually had the ability to distinguish Chix from Cass until I finally saw her(Chix) in the cover of their official magazine.
Of course, I'm talking about Pinoy Big Brother. Specifically, I guess I'm already hooked on their celebrity edition. The title of course is Pinoy Big Brother celebrity edition. duh.
Of course I need to study Angela's and Gretchen's facial characteristics before I could distinguish them. And of course, Mich is the "round"
But the people that really captured my attention in the house was Rico Robles and Roxy Barcelo. I just don't know, pero kinilig ako! lol. But really, at first, hindi ko ma picture out sila together, but recently, inaabangan ko talaga ang susunod nilang mga moments. Call me a frustrated fan...but I see no harm in them being together...And in fact, I like it! Well, I guess love has a way of attracting people together, although they don't want to be together in the first place. Ako lang man to siguro ang may gusto sa tambalan nila...Am I alone? (DO ANSWER ME BACK!). Love is in the is in the air....Love Love Love Love Love
Tomorrow is VDay and, I still don't know what to give my crush......all the love in the world perhaps....
In the spirit of all things mushy and sweet..I've decided to post ONE WEEK's Worth of Love posts...I'll try lang ha.From Feb 14 to for it...can you help me decide on a title?
*twisted note* KEANNA REEVES DESERVES TO STAY IN THE HOUSE! VOTE FOR HER! GO! but that's my opinion....

it happened...:(

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me

Well, I know it's been a week or so since my birthday but I couldn't help but remeber what happened last February 4...enjoying with my friends....eating out with my family....watching Kaharian ng Araw....the stampede....yes, The stampede.

Well, I was quite suprised that a lot of things would be happening on my birthday. That will be the day when Sa Kaharian ng Araw will be staged, Komiks will air starting today, and of course...the grand fromage of them all...wowowee's first anniversay!

Then, it happened...

blah blah
Stampede sa Ultra
60 patay

...Ultra? sounds familiar...I said to myself that morning...
Then, my uncle arrived and said, "Na o, stampede sa Ultra"
Tinanong ko, "ano ba yung meron sa Ultra ngayon?"
sinabi niya, "Yung wowowee", in a suprised voice.
Then, it hit me..."oo nga pala"
Then I read the heading again..."60 katao, patay"
grabe naman to...
Birthday birthday ko....
I don't blame them....
I pity them....
Parang....pangit kasi sobrang pagnanais sa pera....they risked their lives....
sobrang tokenistic naman ang "kinabukasan" nila....
Well, I agree with political analysts when they said, this is the biggest wakeup call that our country has so far.

*note to self* when making libre to my classmates in McDo...remeber to take thier orders ahead of before ordering? Masaya naman....kahit magulo

confessions of a troubled mind and what my day was (number 1)

"this has been a long long day"

you would have expected me to write about something happy or euphoric about my day, seeing as this is my third post, but no.

this day has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride.

why you ask?

let me take you to the beginning.

I woke up, early as usual. Yes, my mom will be going to manila and my dad will drop her off at the airport and after that, he'll drop me off at school. Yes, I woke up quite normal. But I just remembered, today's CHORAL day. A rush of excitement filled me as soon as I realized it. I said to myself, "kaya namin 'to, last year nga". You see, as an honors class, it is expected that you win, and my class (Berchmans), has never broken it's legacy of being first place ever since this section was conceived twelve years ago. Twelve long years. Well, our choral right now will be lucky thirteen, the hell.
This year was different because, as of this morning, the feeling of overwhelming uncertainty filled our heads. Yes, we practiced, but our practices were never perfect. Then, performance time. There goes Jasper, giving a "moving" speech about giving it our all, yes, so moving. Sinabi ko na bigay todo na talaga kami sa performance, and we did. And we felt quite happy about it. After the rest of the third years had performed, dan-dan-daran- the results were announced. We were the first to perform, and although some of my classmates said that the first perfomance almost never wins first...I didn't mind it. Then, the head judge went onstage and announced the results. Then, before she announced it, I glanced at one of the emcees, and when he looked at the paper, he had a scandalous expression on his face, again, I did not mind it. She announced the third place, then the second place, "Second place goes to contestant number one", she said...."one, isn't that our number?!"....the whole class went silent...some were clapping...some had looks on their faces as if they wanted to cry....I could not blame them....Yet I held back my tears......our class....broke the legacy....ouch.....
On the lighter side....none of us....okay most of us....felt....what's the word?...contented....yah....contented......(for full details on why we felt contented....ask me personally)....well....tapos na.....second kami....HINDI "Second lang kami"...but...second's hard to accept...pero...sinasabi ko nalang sa sarili namatayan ka....would you play God and bring that person to life?.....ok na 'to...hindi...masakit pa rin.....wag ka ba ganyan.....bakit man?...binigay mo and todo mo pero hindi pa rin sapat......what do the judges want anyway?......sige...'till next year, WE SHOULD WIN...keber ka...last year na namin and magpatalo kami?....pero kahit na...ay basta! What's done is done....never cry over spilled milk....pwede ka mag shed a tear....basta wag kang paano ka pag binigay mo ang best mo and hindi ka pa rin nagwagi?....basta binigay mo ang best mo...kahit hindi man first place....and kung alam binigay mo and lahat mo...contento ka na....masaya ka na....
pero ang tanong....masaya ba ako?
twisted right?
