Sometimes I want to go out. Like out-out. Like dance with people, have a bit of drinks out. Not get drunk, that’s eeehhh. Like get out of my stressful routine out. Just with my friends and stuff. But usually either my parents won’t allow me, or my friends’ schedule clashes, or they don’t want to go out, or they’re not allowed. Including my boyfriend. He hates that environment but sometimes I want to go out out with him but he doesn’t want to so I don’t force him to. Not gonna do anything suss though. I really am not that type of person. Like socialise with people sort of thing as well. Be my friends’ wingman if they want me to hahaha. :P Dance the night away. Man I miss those a bit. I can’t dance for shit but it’s like a nice release of energy. Sometimes it’s sort of rejuvenating. It’s not like I need to do it every weekend, but once in a while, I think it’s just a nice escape. Well I think I’d rather have a house party, or like a private room if anything, cause I’ll invite my friends, plus 99.9% no creeps to deal with. But nah I don’t think my parents will allow me to do that even if I turn 21. I just one night. UGHUHGUHGUHGUHGU then I’ll probably get over it and stay that way for months. LOL.
ANONYMOUS LOVE REVOLUTION! Take a minute to send this to people/blogs you love to show that you care and also to show to those who use it for hate that the anonymously button should be to show love instead. Because it doesn’t matter who I am, I just love you and that’s what really matters. <3
I’ve been waiting so long for this. The past few weeks I’ve been working my butt off to get things done for my individual assignments, and group projects, due at the end of this semester. I’m glad I will only have 3/4 exams for this semester’s exam block, but I have to make sure that the exams will not be on the 26th of June, as that would be an important day not just for my sister, but for my whole family. It’s my sister’s birthday that day, but there is something in store for the rest of us.
I’m not so sure as to what to do with my holidays, well, excluding the assignments to be done and the research. I might draw a little something as a means of procrastination (and since I haven’t drawn for a while), and clean up my room, and maybe, just maybe, establish an exercise routine that I will stick with on a weekly basis. The people who know me well know that I’m not the athletic-type, so this will be something WAY OUT of my comfort zone. Probably a daily jog before my classes, which start in the afternoon… I don’t know, ya know.
I can also finally hang out in our backyard and probably have some nice tea and all.
(That’s my mum in the photo by the way)
It looks pretty cool, considering my parents and some good friends made all of this possible. I think it was about 4-5 months of renovation involved, and it was all my parents’ blood, sweat, and tears sacrificed so that we could have this beautiful resting place.
My parents are architects, which explains why it look so good. ;w; I wish I can be an architect, but instead I’m pursuing Civil Engineering. ):<
Next week will be exciting as well as I will be celebrating an eventful day with a special someone. :3
I almost forgot to do Cold Rock posters too.
Gotta stay organised, but relaxed, for next week!
To everyone; I wish you all a happy Easter, and a beautiful week next week.
It’s rare nowadays that I make blog entries about the world around us (since I’ve found someone :$), or what is important to me, as a citizen of a multicultural nation. This matter that I would like to point out has been in my head for years but I’ve never openly talked about it, so I feel this is the right media and the right time for me to talk about it.
Also, I need to find another source of procrastination wherein logging on Facebook is not an option, unless it’s related to my studies, or to socialising with my good friends and such. I grow tired of liking each and every post in my news feeds anyway. Maybe if I want to procrastinate from procrastinating, then I shall go back. :P
Jokes aside, I’m here to talk about the Schizo Filipino. I’m sure all of us have met at least one of these people who are too proud to be Filipinos when Manny Pacquiao wins a boxing match, or when Charice or another artist of Philippine background pops up in our televisions. Of course there’s nothing wrong with being prideful about one’s nation, however, accusations of “racism” and the likes to someone for commenting that “Oh the Philippines is a bad place.” kind of gets out of hand.
Residing in Australia for the past 7 years, I’ve understood things I never did when I used to live in the Philippines. One thing I’m happy to be able to do now is accept people’s opinions and to be as open-minded as I can be. I’m also capable of accepting constructive criticism now and have more confidence in my own personal beliefs, and seeing everyone else as equals. I think in general, Filipinos lack that. In my experiences in meeting a lot of “freshies,” I’ve always gotten the same feedback from them. When a famous actor, or a well-known personality comments about “Oh the Philippines is kind of dirty” or when people make jokes about Filipino stereotypes, they would always reply with “They have no right to say that” or “Filipinos are not like that” or (being my favourite) “They’re racist for saying that”.
What’s so racist about a little joke though? People often hear others joke about other Asian ethnicities like the Japanese or the Chinese. Even the western countries stereotype each other, like the English and their tea and the Americans with their burgers. Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like Filipinos are being overly sensitive. One truth about humanity is that we are all a little bit biased, but we can be tolerant even when not in agreement with another person’s opinion.
The thing that irks me about the Filipinos as well is that they say things in disagreement with remarks from other foreign people, but within the country, they pretty much say the same things. “This country is filthy,” “This neighbourhood is full of crap,” “Why do we deserve to live in this filthy place?” Isn’t that hypocritical?
"The Philippines is dirty." It’s true though. I’m not going to lie, the standards of living in Australia is way too high compared to the Philippines. Maybe the Filipinos should stop being so blind and accept it as a truth of the country. If that’s what the other nations see, maybe it’s time for the country to get its act together and make a different. It’s more of an eye-opener in my honest opinion.
I’m not going to lie, I miss the country, and the vibrant life I once had over there. But I think, part of the reason why I’m thankful that I left the country was because of this aspect of it. Hell, even the politicians took offence in something so minuscule, instead of them brushing it off and not making a big deal out of it. Or even better, initiated to change the image of the country for the better.
I don’t understand sometimes. This is sort of what I feel, so I apologise if it’s somewhat confusing. One thing is for sure though, there is a fine line between criticism and offensive remarks, as well as jokes. Filipinos should learn to be less sensitive and stop complaining about the country if they can’t even do anything to change it.
So I’m a member of a Catholic/Christian group called “Singles for Christ” and I like it since it helps me stay connected to God and Jesus, and remind myself about a part of me. However, one thing that irks me is that the group considers homosexuality as a sin. Now, I know why they consider it a…
I don’t know why but I never stop thinking about you. It’s weird I didn’t expect myself to be in this sort of situation like a year ago. I don’t know if you think about me as much but I hope you do. Except reply to my FB wall messages more and I will be happier I feel a bit ignored sometimes. ); Anyways I know you are reading this. Have fun fishing tomorrow while I work my ass off at work. FFFUUU. Funny thing is I have moar money than you now. Feels good man. 8) I really like you by the way. :3 11 months together by Sunday. :O That means we’ve been good friends for about a year! Need to plan something for your birthday still! I don’t even like you anymore. I just love you. Heeheehee. :3
P.S. Stop being lazy so we can go out to places more!
But only for a bit. Like a whole Semester 1 a bit. I don’t know. Tumblr is so fascinating and beautiful words can’t describe I can never hate Tumblr.
But I am aiming for 5s to 7s this semester. Oh woe.
It’s really cute when we drove past some high-roller restaurants and he went “I’ll take you out there one of these days.”
Silly every moment with you is special enough. (Although maybe a very nice holiday at the coast would be good… I want a very private but beautiful room for us, with a very nice bath tub AND breakfast in bed if possible. Very nice view of the coast plsthnks. 8D)
Also is cute when he sneaks kisses.
