Dreams and Smokes

November 25, 2008

I’ve only admired you from afar. For so long I have kept the feelings deep within the recesses of my heart, and at the back of my mind. I know I can only admire you like I would a star. And I admire you for your eloquence, your intelligence, your humor, your wit. And I admire you for how you make me smile, how you seduce me, and how you make me laugh at myself after because you tell me it’s a joke. I admire you for how high you’ve achieved and how far up I believe you’d still go.

A Year Older

November 23, 2008

Yesterday marked my 24th year on Earth. I only spent the eve of my birthday drinking with one of my closest college friends, reminiscing about well… college and envisioning the years ahead. Spent my birthday with my family, and childhood friends. No well-planned (no plans at all) party, no grotesquely drunk joiz painted across the floor of some ladies room (no photos to prove it anyway), no flamboyant burning of cash. It was an ok birthday… Maybe it was a bit bitin but beggars can’t choose. I just didn’t want to plan anything at all (and end up disappointed that the plan just didn’t push through, like last year).

Undergoing Constructive Surgery

November 20, 2008

I didn’t intend to disappear for half a year. I can’t even believe I lasted this long without writing anything on my blog (save for my vote for Mike during the blog awards). I even took down my blog for the last month or so and replaced it with the LOLcat. I have wanted to breathe back life into my blog several times mostly for the wrong reasons. But now that I’m just a couple of sleeps away from my birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to reenter the blogging scene. Simply because I miss it.

note taking = Notebook blogging? huh?

Contests & Votes

Because Mikey Villar Gets My Vote

September 19, 2008

Woah. What’s this? An update?

And no, this is not because of my break up with my quasi-boyfriend. No, not about my mom being a PUJ hit-and-run victim (that one’s painfully raw). No, not about the Lifehouse concert nor the Oktoberfests either. Not even about my addiction to Plurk. And nope, it’s not because I’ve change my website’s look again (I’m working on that).

Well… It’s because of the 2008 Philippine Blog Awards. And I’m here to give out my vote.

And to whom does my vote go to? Mike Villar, that’s who.

Death

May 22, 2008

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France

A part of me has been dying. It has been waiting for its death since god knows when, and yet I held on to it blindly, not wanting to let go, allowing it to eat away my own life.

To others, it might have been long dead, it might never even have existed. But I held it within my grasp because I thought I could fix it. That I could bring it back from what I hope was just its slumbering state. But I concede, with only one request.
