Song: Superman, Five for Fighting
I can't stand to fly...
But I don't know why. I'm jealous of the people who are not afraid to die.
And now I'm fallin, fallin, fallin fast again
Why do I always take a fall, when I fall in love.
Nyahaha! Amazing! Eto pa isa.
I get so...
Bakit ikaw ang nais na matanaw nitong mga mata
Tunay kayang nabighani ako sa taglay mong ganda
(Sana Kahit Minsan by Ariel Rivera.)
bwahahahaha! Eto, last na. kinontribute ng officemate kong si Richard.
Song: In the End, Linkin Park
One thing, I don't know why...
bakit mo ako laging dini-deny
all the goods I've done wala man lang rekognition
mahilig kang manguleksyon binalewala aking atensyon
(Stupid Love, Salbakutah)
Kung may alam kayo na kagaya nung mga nasa taas, comment lang kayo. Pagbigyan niyo na ang mababaw ang kaligayahan. :P

Actually, I'm not that busy when it comes to my work. And I don't want to rant about my work because A.) there's nothing to complain about it (well, minsan. hehe) and B.) my teammates might read it (Hi guys!). So, no blog entry about work. Maybe I can talk about my inspiration while at work, but... nevermind. :D
I've been into a lot of things lately. Some of them are current addictions (don't worry. it's not drugs or something). Some are vacation trips, get togethers and concerts. And I am loving every bit of them.
I'm an addict to some of the tv shows/series lately. Some of them are Lost (I like sci-fi adventure suspense stuff), House (Love the medical cases), The Office (I love the humor and the characters) and American Idol. Speaking of AI, I'm always hearing the usual "Most talented batch ever" line every season. oh c'mon. Season 4 is the best. No one can top that. But I like most of the contestants namely Michael, David C, Brooke and Ramiele.
BTW, I haven't finished those TV series yet even during my DVD marathon last Holy Week. sad. :(
I have been into three: Loverage during the UP Fair, My Chemical Romance and Maroon 5. Loverage is good because it is free, same with MCR. But we enjoyed Maroon 5 more because I know a lot of their songs. Even though we are in the "dukha" section, we really enjoyed the experience.
GET TOGETHERS/VACATION TRIPS
Lunch and dinner outs are the best ways of catching up to the lives of your long lost friends and batchmates. But out of town trips are the ultimate bonding activity there is. It's my first time in Puerto Galera last March 15-16 and it was a blast! The scenery is beautiful, the activities are exciting and most of all, the people with me are fun to be with. I really had a blast. Too bad we didn't experience the night life. But that's okay. The banana boat, hiking, snorkeling and island hopping were fun anyway.
Well, that's it. So far so good. Hope to have more lakwatsas in the weeks to come. And I will be celebrating my 1st work anniversary next month. So that means one thing: I'm working for a year now (duh!). I also hope to update my blog frequently to improve my blogging/writing skills. I also hope that I can buy an SLR camera and learn photography. So many things to do...so little time. And money.

After experiencing freedom for two months, the sometimes bored office computer-user when no work is to be done(like moi) meets it's worst enemy (again), the dreaded Surf Control.
This thing/pest is said to be existent on companies where data security and integrity is top priority (like my company. sheeesh). Or they just don't want the employees to waste bandwidth by checking their officemates Friendster/Facebook profile or exchange messages through YM. Or they just don't want the common employees to waste precious bandwidth so that the IT-Sec personnel (that implements the Surf Control) will continue to play DoTA with minimum lag.
Gone are the days of Friendster, Facebook, Youtube, Multiply (gasp!) and YM that we experienced for two months (some say the license for the surf control ended last November). Even the proxies that let's you surf past the surf control is not working.
But they always say, if there's a will, there's a fortune! (corny). I have some tricks up my sleeve, I tell you. You will still continue to see me with an online status in YM. Without the dynamic status message of my currently playing song in my iTunes, of course.

Wala yatang bumili kasi sobrang laki ng discount (sarcasm). Kaya para idispatsa yung mga sobrang tickets, ipinamigay na lang nila. haha! Fun diba?
Unahang mag-email ng employee number at name at kung ilang tix (max of two). Wala naman akong balak pumunta talaga, pero whadaheck! Nagbakasakali na rin ako na makakuha ng tickets at maging scalper sa Bonifacio Open Field. Ibebenta ko ng 1k each yung ticket. hehe...
Akalain mong nakapasok ako! Eh malas pa naman ako sa mga unahan unahan. Kaya may dalawa akong tickets ngayon. At nahihirapan ako kung sino ang isasama. Eh
Parang trip kong ipamigay yung tix sa mga street children...para maiba naman. Hehe... adik.

Sa wakas, may picture na rin ako with Oble. haha! May Urban Legend kasi na kumakalat na hindi nakakagraduate/madedelay ang sino man na nagpapicture kay Oble before graduation. Uto uto naman ako at sumunod ako. Haha! Woohoo!
100 years of rich history. And I only experienced a part of it.
100 years of excellence. And I opted to be mediocre at best. Not giving 100% to everything that I did in order to excel.
100 years of fun. And I had a share of it during my stay. Overnights, parties, UP Fair. The list goes on and on.
100 years of trials and hardships. And I complained even with a simple one. From unanswered problem assignments and missed concerts to subjects in the risk of failing.
100 years of friendships made. And even I met only less than a 100 friends on my 4 year stay, I know (and I hope) that our friendship will stay for more than a hundred years.
100 years. More than a hundred things that I love in this University. More than a hundred things to be proud of it.

Noong 2007, unang beses kong hindi makaranas ng kumpletong tulog for 2-3 weeks. Ang pagtulog ay isang pangarap lamang nung mga panahong iyon...
Noong 2007, unang beses akong grumaduate ng college. Obvious ba? siyempre first and last time lang yun mangyayari. haha!
Noong 2007, unang beses akong hindi nakareceive ng individual award noong graduation. Pero keri lang. Nagkaroon naman kami ng award ng thesismates ko dahil sa thesis namin.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong makaranas ng job interview. Unang beses ko rin inulan ng text messages at mga calls para sa mga job interview at offers.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong napuntahan ang Ortigas at Makati Central Business District para mag-apply ng trabaho at umattend ng mga interviews. Unang beses ko rin nakasira ng leather shoes dahil sa sobrang gamit.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong maligaw sa Makati.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong makaranas ng medical exam at... ayoko ng pag-usapan ang tungkol dun.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong nagkaroon ng trabaho. As in yung legal na trabaho. hindi kasi counted yung assignment/project maker na sideline ko nung high school ako. Hindi rin counted yung pagiging holdaper at snatcher sa may cubao.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong bumili ng mamahaling bagay gamit ang sariling pera. Hihi... feeling mayaman ampota.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong magbirthday na may "something explosive and monumental" na nagaganap (see previous blog post). Pero malas nila, pumalpak sila sa balak nila.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong magregalo sa mga inaanak ko. Moral lesson: huwag akong kuhaning Ninong.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong nag birthday at nag pasko na wala ang Mommy at Daddy ko. huhu... alam kong nababasa niyo ito. Bumalik na kayo sa bahay! huhu...
Noong 2007, unang beses yata dumami bigla ang mga get togethers at mga lunch/dinner outs. Nami-miss na siguro namin ang mga isa't isa.
Noong 2007, unang beses kong narealize na hindi ko tinutupad ang mga New Year's resolution ko. At narealize ko din na malaki sanang pagbabago kung natupad ko ang mga ito.
At ngayong 2008... wala lang. Ewan ko kung matutupad ko yung New Year's Resolution ko. Baka tamarin ulit ako at hindi ko ulit matupad.
OK, tama na ang kasiyahan. back to work...
