happy hallowoo =)

Wow can you believe this is my first post as a fifteen year old? Haha. I mean, this is like a milestone or something. This will only happen once. I will only have one first post as a fifteen year old. Yehey! Okay, so I'm exaggerating. So excited, I guess? =)

MY BIRTHDAY WAS A BLAST! My mom and I went to mass in the morning and as usual, I felt like a happy little girl when I heard my name for the special intentions. Hehe =) And then when I checked my phone it had like 15 messages! Since it was our Intramurals (and the day of the cheering competition!), everyone was so busy with everything and I thought they would forget my birthday but they didn't. Hehe. When I came inside the room, everybody sang me a happy birthday. Aww =) Anyway, I was surprised at how many people knew it was my birthday. And because it was Intrams, my friends were introducing me to their friends from their teams, tapos they'll greet me. Haha. New friends + many birthday greetings = well, many new friends and birthday greetings. Haha =) But what really surprised me was the afternoon surprise (haha, let's call it that, okay?). I entered our room about to change into my PE when suddenly my friends were lined up in the platform holding folders with "LOVE U" on them and sang me Happy Birthday. AWW. It was the sweetest thing. Those folders have been passed around the days before with messages in it, and I had no idea. It was sooo sweet. Then came afternoon where we had a little party here in my place. We all had fun, took pictures and yes, the food was YUMMY. =)

Mikka, me and Nica =)

Very vain Enemies: Hope and moi.


Then came Saturday, the sleepover day! =) The Fashionistas (Nica, Mikka, Hope, Tin, Keng and me) had a blast here! We watched movies, did each other's hair (haha we had this thing.. basta! We had nice hair!!) and well, slept. Hehe. We watched Dawn Of The Dead and man, was it gory. It was blood everywhere, from beginning to end! Good thing I'm not very scared of zombies and blood -- I'm more afraid of Sadako types. Haha. Anyway, it was fun having my friends over and just lazying around. Haha. =)

So yeah, that was basically my birthday. I had fun. I hope I do too for the rest of the year ahead of me. Whee! =) Pics here.

I read this article from Candy about a girl who was able to go to Wilmington, North Carolina aka Tree Hill!!!! I swear I almost cried when I saw it. Lucky lucky lucky beeyotch. Haha. She was able to see my baby James play in actual Tree Hill Charity Ball Game and see all the other stars too!! I wanna go there! I wanna see the Tree Hill cast and have my picture taken with James (and maybe kiss him!) I'll ask that as my birthday gift next year.. haha. I guess no more birthday gifts for the years after that -- a trip there must be pretty pricey! =) But oh well, anything for my Nathan =)

I've been such a nerd these days. I finished four books in one week (yeah, I was on a roll!) and currently starting a new one. I'm watching OTH and Scrubs like crazy. I've been laughing like a hyena (Dr. Dorian is soooo funny!) and then crying the next (how can Lucas let Brooke go?!) But I'm loving it.. at last, another week of freedom and bliss. Harhar. Still have to finish that Algeb assignment though.

And I suddenly ran out of things to say. Harhar. Thanks to those who commented again.. fifteen! Another record! =) Much love goes out to all of you.

So cute! ♥
Happy Halloween!


some trust in pain, some just get away.

I LOVE The Fray. Have I mentioned that lately? Every time I listen to their songs, they just take me away. The title was from their song, Vienna. Listen to them, people. It's hard not to love The Fray, I swear! =)

Last Saturday, we went to Ateneo to join this youth conference entitled, "Kabataan: Anong Magagawa Mo Para Sa Bayan?" And guess who I saw?

Me and Atom Araullo =)

I cannot believe that the past week just flew by and now it's the 24th! Why is October flying by so fast?! Is it really because I'm having fun?! All the classes are shortened to give way to our Intrams practices, and almost all our minds are off the lessons. Haha. I've been swimming everyday, and I tell you, it's no joke! My arms and legs are aching. Imagine, 20 laps just for the warm-ups! Then we have to race against each other, then practice the relay. And since I'm a backstroker, I always have to count the bars of the ceiling or else I'll hit my head on the wall (which I've done already for a couple of times! Ouch) It's really tiring -- but it's worth it. All the team colors are bonded already, and we don't feel like we're against each other because we basically just see it as play. Hehe. And besides, we get to play in the pool everyday, so who's complaining?! =) The competition's on the 25th so I really have to do my best! Crossing my fingers =P

The first elimination for the volleyball games was held last Friday (Yellow Green vs. Blue) and of course, we were cheering for Nica, Jade, Jem and Aly for the YG! I know, I'm in the Pink team, but heck, I HAVE to cheer for them! I was actually having second thoughts because I have this tendency to jinx the people I'm cheering.. but I guess it didn't work this time! Nica was on a roll out there. Haha =) And yes, they won! Go YG =)

I love love love love love this picture of Nathan and Haley! It's from Episode 1.13 where Nathan was teaching Haley how to do a free throw. It was sooo cute! I wish I had Nathan with me during our basketball. Tsk. =)

I look at myself in the mirror and I say, "Wow, in a few days I'll be turning fifteen already." And to some, fifteen is this almost-adult age where you have to act all lady-like and demure. Fifteen is when you start thinking about your course, your future, your life. Fifteen is when you let go of all the immaturities and start to grow up. Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but that's how fifteen feels like to me. And somehow, I don't want to be fifteen yet. I'm a kid! I'm a seven-year-old trapped in a teenager's body. Just thinking about growing up and acting all Maria Clara-ish is not so much of a fun time for me. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to be treated all grown-up and be independent too, but I guess I just don't like the feeling of people expecting so much from you as you grow older. I wish we only age when we're emotionally ready to handle the stress that comes along with growing up. I wish the digits can descend when we start acting childish again. But I guess part of celebrating your birthday is accepting the fact that another year has gone and a new one is about to unfold. And yes, I am the "I-can't-wait-for-my-birthday" kind of person. In a few days, *ehem*two!*ehem* I'll be blowing my candles and I'll be really turning quince. What may happen to me or what will be left of me on the fifteenth year of my bizarre life, we'll never know, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see. So to another year of my life -- I hope this one brings more happiness. Or rather, more strength to continue being happy! I mean, come on! Why suffer when we can all party and have fun?!

Love these shirts!
They were worn by Haley on various Season 3 episodes.
Anyone want to give me these as a birthday gift?!
Please? =)

Wanna send in your birthday wishes? I'll be happy to hear from you! Click.

No classes today so I have to make sure I spend the day right -- by surfing the 'Net! Haha. Besides, no more assignments for me because on Wednesday we'll just be practicing for the Intrams which will start on Thursday! (YEP, I KNOW, INTRAMS ON MY BIRTHDAY!!) Then after that, sem break! Yeheyy! =) So yeah, this post is pretty much legal. Hehe.

By the way, thanks to ALL those who commented on my previous post. Thirteen! That's a record. Hehe. I appreciate them all, thankyouverymuch. Keep 'em coming! =)

Love to all.
Mwah mwah!


did you miss bombastarr while she was away?

FINALLY. The exams are over. Yeah baby.
I wouldn't go about ranting how difficult Chem was, how long it took for me to solve the equations for Algeb, how I stayed up late last night to study for Health, how I memorized the map of Europe AND the people of the Renaissance, how I panicked during our Physics test when I realized I lost my pencil and I had to solve using my blue G-tec and I had to pass my paper full of erasures and arrows.

Oh wait, I just did. =)

NEW LAYOUT. I told you. And it's featuring Brooke and Lucas from OTH. I know, I'm still a loyal Naley fan but I just love this scene from Episode 3.22 when Brooke asked Lucas to dance with her after they had a fight. It was sooo sweet. Made using Adobe again and I know it's kind of rushed but I still like it, though. Brushes from Cars and Hybrid-Genesis. And what made me love this pic even more was that the song "Boston" by Augustana was played during the scene. I swear, that song is LOVE and that band rocks. Download it, now! I demand you!!

Anywaaay, something happened that up until now, I cannot believe that it would happen to ME. Well, you all know that I am the loser-est person when it comes to sports and I almost fail PE miserably because of it. My only hope of passing is swimming because that's the only thing I think I'm good but I don't really see it as a sport, more of a hobby or play. Last Wednesday, during our first swimming class for this year, our teacher approached me and told me I should try out for the Pink team swimming team. Of course, I was shocked because she was clearly approaching the wrong person -- I am not athletic AT ALL. And she wants me to try out for swimming? Seriously. I was waiting for her to say, "Ay joke!" or something, but she didn't and I swear that was my most SHOCKED moment ever. ME?! Well, I decided it wouldn't be so bad, after all I'm not an official cheerleader in the pep anyway, and besides, what the heck? It was just for the Intrams, right? So I tried out today after our tests.. and yes, I got in =) And yes, I HAVE to blog about this because I never ever thought that I can be chosen to compete in a sport. A sport! I'm an athlete. Haha. Feeling. And the best part is I get to swim everyday. Woohoo! =) Yaay, me!

Ooh, just watched an episode of Wonder Woman at this local channel.. and she was swimming! Wonder Woman was swimming out in the sea to diffuse a bomb. Wowness. Is this a sign or what? Haha.

Moving on..

I already saw the first episode of Season 4 and I swear -- it was good. As good as a cup of ice cream with Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and cherry on top. It was heartbreaking and heart-warming at the same time.. and I wanted to cry along with the characters. This is why I cannot get enough of OTH. I always feel like I can relate to them, like something in their world is happening to my world. People always ask me, "Ano bang meron sa One Tree Hill na yan?" and I often answer in jest, "Nathan!" but seriously it's more to me than just the hottie or the loveteams (though they're definitely a plus!). I know I probably sound like corny die-hard fan but the show always hits this part of me, and it's unexplainable. It's just there. And it's weird, but I guess now it's safe to say that OTH has become a huge part of me already. So yes, laugh all you want I don't care. I'm going to say it out loud: I LOVE ONE TREE HILL!! And I love Nathan Scott even more =)

Yikes, career talks will start next week. Waaah. Our guidance counselor will tell us the result of our career test and then we'll talk about our courses, preferred colleges.. those kind of stuff. And just thinking about it makes me feel so grown-up! In just a a year or so I'll be graduating. Wow.

Who am I kidding? That's not what I'm really waiting for just yet because..
in just a few days or so, I'll be turning 15!
Can't wait! =)

The Courtyard Adventures =)

october na?! sino may birthday?

"Douglas Adams once wrote: 'He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream, and he sometimes wondered whose it was, and whether they were enjoying it.'"

-- One Tree Hill, Episode 2.20: Lifetime Piling Up

I've actually seen some clips and pictures from the first episode of OTH's fourth season already!! :) Waaah. Haven't seen the whole thing yet, though because I want to enjoy it after the periodic tests -- which by the way was moved next week because of the typhoons. I hate it when they move major tests like these. Nasisira yung momentum ko. You prepared for it already, and you set all your plans on the dates after the exams right away, then something like this happens! ARGH. Oh well. At least more time to review.

James and Bethany in the opening credits! So cute =)

I cannot believe that because of Milenyo I realized I am not a slave of my phone. When Globe's signal went down and my battery went dead, I thought I was going to die along with it. But turns out, I didn't. Some (although I don't blame them for it) had to pay for their phones to be charged in malls or just charge their "best friends" in their cars, but me, I survived almost four days without it. Of course, there came a point where I wanted to go hysterical already because everyone else has charged their phones already and in other areas, the signals were back up, so I felt like I was disconnected to the world. But there I was, able to separate myself from my dear phone. I was even able to spend one whole day without even seeing it. WOW. The damages and casualties the typhoon Milenyo brought was immense, and I am very saddened about all these. But I'm glad I was able to see the bright side of all these somehow. Eating leftover food, trying to sleep without an electric fan or aircon, walking around in the dark -- it's so hard to imagine life like this and yet I (and you too!) survived. They make us more human in a way, because the typhoon temporarily detached us from all these worldly things and suddenly we are able to become our most human selves without all these "gadgets." We have our families, our safe homes and friends -- these are what we cannot really live without. Maybe this typhoon is God's way of reminding us that there are much more important things in life. I'm glad this "Peter Pan" thing really is working. And imagine, I was able to think about all of that because there was nothing else to do! Haha =) I jumped up and down when the power went back and I was able to charge my phone again, though. Hey, can't blame a girl for wanting to text her friends again!

We watched Silent Screams a while ago for CLE. It's about this documentary on aborting babies. While watching it, I so wanted to cry. We actually saw how a 3-month old baby was aborted -- crushed into pieces. I was so shocked at how the baby knew she was in danger. She was moving away from the metal stick that was trying to kill her. But after a few moments, there was nothing left inside the uterus but blood. The documentary showed the abortion process through an ultrasound only, it wasn't very clear. But you can still see how the baby silently screamed and cried for help. It pained me to see that. I was horrified. I cannot believe that there are people out there who think abortion is a SOLUTION to a mistake they made with their boyfriend or partner. It isn't the baby's fault, and yet it's the baby who has to take the "fall" and suffer. I know we're overpopulated.. but abortion isn't the answer to that. It's abstinence from sex (or at the very least, protection) that can help. I know I'm not in the right position to judge people who did it, or plan to do it. But it's morally wrong. It isn't right. Enough said about that.

I'm finally happy. And then someone else isn't. Shoot, why can't we all just share the happiness?! Just when I want things and people to be okay.. they aren't. *sigh*

Oh well.

IT'S OCTOBER ALREADY! WHICH MEANS.. IT'S MY BIRTH MONTH!! WOOHOO. SO WATCH OUT FOR A NEW LAYOUT.. and yeah, I think I'll be putting up the q-box again. I kind of miss answering the questions =) Hehe. 23 days to go =)

Got to go eat dinner.

Mom told me not to blog just after I posted this. Waaaah.
