Ow-Jay-Tee Part 6 Top OJT Songs

I love music. You can never take that away from me. And because of that I usually incorporate songs to my life. When I’m down, I have a particular song that plays in the background of my reverie. When I’m having LSS, the song will be on the list of my “overrated” and “overplayed” songs.

Music is life. It tells things about life. It explains things that are unexplainable and expresses emotions that are suppressed.

Here are the songs that remind me of my Internship period. From the start of it until the last date (which will be next week. Yey!).

1.       Goodbye Days

-          This was my LSS during my first week at Emerson. It has that nostalgic feel on it, that even if you cannot understand its lyrics you unconsciously stop for a moment and give it a try and absorb it as it is. This was also our friendship anthem with my EMT friends. Thanks to Emerson (real person for introducing the song to us.)

2.       Back to December

-          I would really want to go back to December and relive the OT moments I had and the moments I spent alone on upgrading the systems at Emerson. On December I had my latest out which was past midnight; it was also a memorable one too. I went home singing to the tune of Taylor Swift’s love song to Taylor Lautner.

3.       Mean

-          This song was also in my playlist during my memorable overtimes and late outs. Just wondering whom Taylor is referring the song with. J Oh well, whoever that guy is… gotta be meaner than mean.

4.       Dynamite

-          I remembered grooving to the beat of this song during Emerson-PWS’ Christmas Party at Encore. T’was fun, memorable, and tiring. Partying all night long! Woohoo!

5.       Uncharted

-          The latest song Sara Bareilles has to offer to her fans, including me. J One of my buildeval songs. Relieves me when I need to loosen up myself after a tedious updgrade. Really love the song and the video is oh-so-awesome!

6.       If this was a movie

-          This song lulls me to sleep. One of Taylor Swift’s saddest song (as for me) to date. Makes me want to let out and go berserk for no reasons. It sends chills to my spine whenever the “What about the ending?” line draws nearer and nearer because as far as I’m concern, it’s the saddest lyric in the song. L

7.       Hoot (SNSD)

-          Kpoppish me! This song reminds me of the TUPEG week I had which forced me to be absent for one day. The 3 day vacation/TUPEG made me realize that I really needed a break to distress me from my work environment. Which really worked out for me.

These songs will be forever etched in my memory of my OJT days at Emerson. J

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
