At this point of time, I already have daydreams for my future as a civil engineer. On what company I want to work for, the field that I want to pursue, and whether or not will I work out of the country. And of course, plans for my family. By family, I mean, my mom and dad and my younger sister. :)
For my younger sister, I am planning to send her to one of the best schools in our place. I want to support her studies until she graduates. I want to give her the best education because no matter how much I try not to sound so Miss Universe-ish, I really believe that good education will bring somebody to a good future. ^_^
For my father, I think a surprise moped would be a great gift. IDK. I just want to give him one. That’s why I’ve been keen on looking for cheap mopeds for sale online. Hihi.
Lastly, I want to give my mother her own mansion. Yips. Not even kidding. And that mansion shall house the an expensive kitchen, a parlor and a spa for her. All my life she’s been this typical housewife, she may be content but of course, once I have the means to do so, I’ll give her what I can to make her feel like the queen that she has to be. :) And yes, sometimes, especially to a simple housewife as my mom, a few luxury is still justifiable.
Well, yeah. These are a few of my civil engineer daydreams.
For now, I should start reviewing for the exams. Oh.
Hey. Yeah, so uhm.
November is about to end. So as the year. How have you been? As for me, I regard myself as “busy” if not procrastinating.
So many things happened. In a flash, we’ll be facing yet another year. And uhm.. I will be graduating next month. Hurray for me, e?
And then the review for board exam shall follow. Honestly, I wasn’t really that excited at all. I don’t even want to take the exams because I don’t feel the support from my family so probably I’ll just fail it in the end. However, I am not saying that I won’t be trying and somehow I’m preparing. Talk about though inconsistency.
Anyways, I am starting to clean my room now. Which happen to be my sister’s and younger sister’s room as well. Yeah, we share tha same room and I, being the only working student has the messiest corner. T^T Add to them my cosplay stuff that can’t be just put away anyhow. That’s why I am thinking of having some kind of a storage cabinet or wakeboard wall rack in our room. We might not have a wakeboard —but who knows maybe one day— yet it can still be used as a normal rack right? I was thinking of hanging my wigs there actually. Okay let me put it this way, I just live the style of it. I want it in my room.
When I can just buy an actual wig rack. Don’t know. Mind no function. Eh. Eh. Eeeeeeh..
Let me get this straight. I know this one’s a big Saeko Busujima cosplay fail because I mean, look at the eyes. I understand that Saeko always has this fierce-looking stare and I failed to achieve that. Add to it the eyeliner that isn’t supposed to look that way. The hair color is a bit lighter as well. And any HOTD fan would agree that Saeko never had a bracelet like that.
But Busujima is my dream cosplay. I have wanted to cosplay her ever since I laid eyes on Highschool of the Dead hence, this [WorldCosplay] submission.
I want to perfect my Saeko cosplay and that wouldn’t happen if I toss my humble beginnings away. :) (go ahead, LOL at the “humble beginnings”)
With that being said, I accept comments and suggestions regarding this photo. Constructive criticisms are most likely preferred.
I am really a big fan of Apple. Ironically, I only have a classic iPod touch to brag about but if one day, Santa would ask me what I want for being a nice kid this year, I would not hesitate to ask for a classic imac 27. Why? Because why not! With its 27-inch LED-backlit display and 0.65cm width, I can surely be able to do my graphic design experiments and probably can start experimenting on song editing as well. I am sure my friends who already have a background in arranging music will agree. :)
Sometimes the thought of attending music lessons in Shreveport comes into my mind. Especially when days like these come. A lot of my musically inclined friends are already rehearsing for different programs where musical instruments are involved. Yeah, I know how to play the guitar but not to the extent that I can perform in front of a crowd. I do covers which I only watch and that’s it. I just hope I can be as good as them.
Because like my feels, I cannot contain everything.
It’s been four days.
I can’t even begin to write this article. I know I have to so here goes.
It’s been four days since the most awaited moment of Philippine ELFs finally came. SuperShow5 in Manila happened last October 24, 2013 at the MOA Arena and I was there to witness it. I was LUCKILY there to witness the boys of Super Junior pour their hearts out for their Filipino ELFs.
Way back months before, when the rumors about the said started spreading, I only had I thing in mind. GET A JOB. And thank God, he gave me one.
Months passed and the pain of waiting for the ticket prices finally ended as Ms. Happee Sy announced the tentative range of the ticket price. On the Facebook event page, a tickling realization came to me. I CAN AFFORD THE VIP TIX. OMG. But for some reasons, I bought and Upper box ticket and waited patiently for the big day to come.
And so I faced a new set of months of pain and waiting. Add to it the uncertainty of Kim Heechul’s attendance. A text message from a dear ELF friend somewhat eased my longing. There’s an indirect announcement of Heechul being part of the concert. And so I prayed hard and waited again for the official confirmation.
At long last! During the Super Junior Fiesta at MOA Arena, the staff of SJUPh and PetalsPh confirmed that KIM HEECHUL will be joining this year’s SS5 Manila and not only that, he will have a solo performance! WHAT THE… Kim Heechul, my ultimate bias. Finally. From that moment on, I got nothing to worry about anymore.
Our preboard exams got moved to the 24th and 25th of October.
When I received the news, I was certain that God was testing me. I know I shouldn’t but I asked WHY so many times. I didn’t wait that long just to let it get washed away by some unjust decisions. But school is more important than fangirling so I chose my destiny of just running fast and forgetting about composure just to get to the venue. Yes, may not have blood, but surely sweat and tears.
Yet on the lighter side, or should I say BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN SIDE, another text message sprinkled my withered fangirl heart with a nurturing fresh water from the ponds of Eden in a form of free SVIP tickets. You don’t have to believe me now but later you’ll see.
A friend from NuffnangPH informed me that two SVIP tickets are waiting for me on the venue that day. When I received the text, I swear, I used all the energy in my body not to throw my poor Nokia Asha away. So instead, fighting the inverted gravity, I put it down gently and jumped up and down as if the ground is my tarpaulin. SVIP TICKETS FOR SS5! Just when I already accepted the fact that I will be on the Upper Box. Oh Lord. We really don’t know what His plans are.
Not knowing why, I asked. Of course. -_-
He said that they reviewed my post from the previous KPop Event where Super Junior wasn’t even part of. I just don’t know any other Kpop groups to write in there so I wrote about my boys. Not knowing that years later, it will give me the opportunity to see them up-close. Thanks to Nuffang and Globe. OMG.
I lent my Upper Box ticket to a friend. The thought of selling the other ticket came to my mind but I decided to invite my bestfriend with me instead. She’s not even a Kpop fan but I don’t care, I don’t want to sell the happiness.
After school, I ran home. Ran to meet Clarence and together we ran to the venue. Miss Tina of Globe was already there waiting for me. WIth my babies, the SVIP tix. With all our hearts, we took the nearest jeepney not even on the loading zone. Yes, I broke a lot of rules that day. Which I am not proud of and will surely regret forever but during that time, I just need to get to Starbucks at MOA Arena to finally get hold of my tickets.
On the way at around 6:30pm (event starts at 7), I think it was on Guadalupe station, I received Miss Tina’s text. She said that the only tickets on-hand with her were the UpperBox ones. I got sad. Honestly. Because who wouldn’t right? But then, I realized, I was with my bestfriend. I helped my other friend watch the concert. So go for the gold! Maybe other bloggers came early and I understood they deserve the better slots. Haggard as I may seem but very much thankful, we met the angel who is Miss Tina and the glorious moment happened, she handed me the tickets, I signed the form where my name and website URL appear, we took a photo together and tada!! Welcome to SS5!!! Wooooooo!!
Seriously, Globe, you do not know how you made a simple blogger such as myself I-don’t-even-know-how-to-describe feeling. #GlobeSuperJunior!! Happy is an understatement. Thank you so much and more power.
Whoever does not encounter hurt probably has been dead by now. Pain does not provide exemptions. Like air, it is natural for people to feel and live with. The only difference is that it is not always in front of us and its arrival is always sudden. It is just so funny how you could feel complete today, and then be completely broken tomorrow because of it.
In the past months of 2013, she was floating in a sea of hurt. Just as she was enjoying the love of March, April broke her heart. Until now it is still unclear to her why he has to suddenly leave. She was not prepared for it.
She got a copy of OneRepublic’s Native and immediately, she unconsciously generated her life’s OST. The songs reflect all of the good that was left in her memory of him. They are exactly what she have always wanted to tell him: how he made her feel again (Feel Again), how she could make herself be what he wanted (What You Wanted), and how she want to live this only life she get to have with him (Something I Need). The songs kept playing until she moved on.
Eventually, she realized that hurt is ironic: it is life as much as it is a destruction.
Life is a continuous process, where the death of memories signifies the birth of new ones. Just as what OneRepublic’s song “I Lived" says, with every broken bone, with every scars and shattered hearts, we can say that we have lived, because life is nothing without us taking risks, and life is too short for us not to handle them, for us not to fall in love.
OneRepublic’s Native Tour for me is a celebration of lives breathed in many ways one could possibly do: a fest of lives of different colors where I really love to be a part of. I can feel that on the night of the 6th of November, things will be about everyone who are fighting to gain the victory that we all deserve. After all, despite of all the horrible experiences a person has to face, there are more reasons for us to be thankful for (Life in Color).
