Human interest stories, among other things.

Happy Birthday Mom, I love you. :)

I haven't even wrote a single thing on my ACET from, and the deadline's near. And to top things off, the UPCAT'll be next week! ffffffffffffff.....!

Now...on to the real cheese.....

To make up for the weeks of not posting anything new, I'll just have to fill you in with my "human interest stories" which I thought about for days.

For those of you who've already seen Sukob, well, good for you. :)

Why do most people insist on conjugating an -h or -z etc. after say, "ko"? Like, I've seen a lot of friendster accounts with things like "hellow poh!!!! add moh poh ako, ha? sige, take carez poh! mwah!"...hahaha..Am I shallow???? just plays with my curiosity sometimes. Well, not that I find anything wrong with that nor is that a public Everything's just so..*insert any adjective here*.

Next off, Why do aging (old) English teachers insist on wearing skirts that show off their legs? Okay, am I shallow again???? Well, maybe you can't really blame them for knowing that they aren't the Manilyn Monroe of the season...But do they have to be the Tina Turner?? again, it's just an observation. No offense.

Lastly, Why does it feel like you don't have enough time do nothing???? yes, the irony in it all. You can feel the clock closing in on you, giving you the "look". Making you feel guilty, making you feel bad. Then, claustrophobia sinks in......

I'm doomed.

"I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying. "

I love Meredith's quotes.:)

the fly, the bus and the queird

I have about a minute to type this because i'll be riding the waves of montony soon (read:homework).
Well, I deleted my previous post because I figured out that I've had enough of sadness for one day, so...
to quote our physics teacher, when the bus moves and there's a fly inside the bus, the fly won't be pushed to the end of the bus, it'll stay where it is. motion is relative. remember that. by relativity we mean, we judge something by a view or perspective. to us, riding in a bus and just staring at the floor, we won't feel the movement. but if you look out the window, and see the swooshing of the trees and houses, then congratulations, you can see. and the bus is moving. lit class, our teacher said to be human means living, not existing. by that we mean, you feel, you give meaning and you savor every idiosyncratic thing that you do, from spitting to shaking your butt. note: having your own idiosyncrasies makes you unique, not, we humans are QUEIRD (a contraction of queer and weird).
so...i'm really not going to waste my life just looking at floor of the bus, and find nothing passionate and splendored about brushing your teeth.
and it took me fifteen minutes to write this...that's a start.
