FAMAS awards

cutely enough, just last night, i found out that FAMAS, in FAMAS awards actually stands for Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences. hah. i used to think it was some kind of infamous international movie award-giving body. hahahaha. very unfortunately, i am not into fiipino movies, hence the crime of ignorance for what a FAMAS award is. hahahaha.

last night, while doing a little research on my homework topics, i saw this local magazine lying around my cousin's pad --- we're next door neighbors, by the way. i picked it up for a bit of skim reading. there, i read about the FAMAS awards. it did me good. not only was i dispelled from the honest mistake of ignorance, my funny bone was tickled. can you imagine, all the while, i really thought it was this not-really-huge movie award and filipinos get shots of luck winning it? for a moment, i sat there, laughing at myself. it was a relief to be out of the hysterics my homeworks gave me.

sighs and bday wishes

i have changed my giddy fan girl twilight multiply lay-out because i saw this cool lay-out and felt like i needed the change. chillax.

i am stuck here, trying to finish all the modules and requirements for my masters so that i can catch the deadline, and finally be able to go home. my siblings have gone yesterday and i am left all alone in the empty pad *sigh*, hoping against hope that i can finish everything within the scant amount of time given by my professors. no pressure, *sigh*. i have switched my major to administration, aspiring to rise the ranks --- another sigh. my father suggested that after i finish the said major, i will pursue the major that i was supposed to take. so, it's a double major. jeez. most of the time i think it's madness. my lungs are almost out of air with everything i am doing now, how much more when i take another major? or maybe it's just a miserable case of sheer laziness overtaking, that i am having constant arrythmias and dyspnea when the thought 'requirements for masters' crosses my mind. one more trimester to go and i'll be done hopefully by may next year. thesis --- of course, i have to comply everything in time for graduation. unequivocally, i do not have any excuse not to get things done. i am, clearly, unemployed.

part of the deal my parents and i had is that i take up a doctoral degree after i finish my masters. whew. a hefty list. i have no other options; i can't do my thing if i don't stick with the compromise. luckily, i am flawlessly --- okay, not really flawless --- fulfilling my side of the bargain. i just wish that my parents will, too. good luck to me on that one.

the second trimester will be over soon and i am morosely anticipating for the craziness of thesis-making.

my mind is swimming in the large pool of management and organizational development, hence the very scattered write-up.

i want to wish my brother, NEAL, a very happy birthday!
also to my friend, ERIC!

happee birthday!

i have transferred my twilight final trailer at the bottom of the page, as it consumes a whole lot of space when placed under the widget, thus making everything look cluttered. okay, so everything in my page looks a little messy with all twilight thingys. but the movie will be out soon, so eventually they will be removed.

a happy birthday to my one and only brother --- by blood, of course --- NEAL!!!
actually, his birthday will be tomorrow...advance nalang. just in case i won't be online.

up to

good morning everyone!!!

yes! i am in a very good mood today. first, because of the final twilight trailer --- can you believe it? it has basically made up my day. second, semestral break is near. which means that i can go home and take a short vaca of sorts. and third, i am euphoric, yet again for some unknown reason.

my twilight widget will stay where it is, though it is consuming a lot of space, until the movie releases. i am soooo excited for november 21st. yayyyy!!!

i am up to several write-ups at the moment. most of which, i am going for 2000 words. i will post some of them, as promised, when i am finally able to tie-up the loose ends and polish everything. of course, you shouldn't get your hopes up; after all, i am but an amateur writer --- sans any formal education on creative writing. though i have been in a publication, it doesn't erase the fact that i still need to learn more about the field, let alone practice. in any case, i will share my thoughts.

the witch of portobello, another masterpiece of author paulo coelho, is on top of my reading list right now. if not for the constant reminder that i have tons of work to do for my masters, i wouldn't set the book down. even at the start, already it is mesmerizing. my reading list also includes the incomplete and unpublished work of my favorite author, stephenie meyer, midnight sun. since the leak of its partial draft, stephenie has put the writing of the book on hold. and i understand how she feels. her rights as an author, even as a human being, was violated. it's no joke to write a book. however, she posted the partial draft on her website for all her fans to read. to no surprise, i downloaded the file for me to conveniently read and reread. my growing shabby collection of books includes all the books of the twilight saga, and midnight sun is unequivocally part of it. i've reread all of her books for nth times already and still, i get the same shot of thrill and excitement just like the first time i read them. i don't know what magic stephenie has, i just don't get tired with rereading all of her works.

my best friend and i are planning to purchase sure seats on the movie's (twilight)release date. it's gonna bite our pockets, but nevertheless, it is worth every penny. it's my happiness --- in every sense of the phrase --- here i go again with the unrealistic dreaming, ha ha! wish us luck because i am hoping against hope that lady luck will be standing side by side with us on the week of.

missin' aira

aira's in california right now. i'm starting to miss her already.

we've been friends since God knows when. i consider her one of my confidants, one of the very few i trust. we had the same 'carpool' --- i'm sorry, i don't know the appropriate term to use --- from grade school until high school. there are so many things i'd like to write about her, about our friendship, and of course, our barkada. but it seems i am not in the mood to write about these things for now. my thoughts are flying, and the atmosphere is not catering my writing drive well. let's leave it at that.

however, i will post some of my pre-meditated write-ups and epiphanies here soon. until then.
