Not cool!

Okay, so everyone already knew that my Internship at Emerson ended with a BANG! Which leads me to realize this fact: No internship means no allowance. Oh my! I don't want to be broke forever! I must do everything and anything to continually support myself financially. And also to avoid bumming around all summer long. (I so don't want to be a bummer!) That ain't cool! And without facebook access and all the stuff you can do with the aid of computer and laptop I'll be forever doomed with the fact that I'm such a looooooooooooser. About that one, the thing that dreads me. I don't have a laptop yet! What will I do? My course outline exactly tells me that I ought to have a laptop as soon as possible. If I cannot afford a laptop then a PC would suffice it. But on the surface having that myself is like so IMPOSSIBLE given my predicament. My talkies ninang won't even buy me one. I already asked her that thing since medieval times (okay so that's just an exaggeration). The thing is I asked a laptop from her last last last year. See? and until now I haven't got myself a new or a second hand laptop. I hope my tito would save a penny to help me purchase my own laptop. Even my sister won't buy me one. I guess if they'll not help me with this, I'll just help myself. Oh well, the thing I'd do to have a laptop. Sad sad. I guess my friend will help me when the time will come that we will be required to make systems, analyze programs, do codings such as php and java scripts. I hope everything will be fine even if I don't get the laptop I needed to help me with my course now. I really hope that I'll be prepared and equipped even if that time will come. In the long run I already made it this far, 3 years of being a Computer Engineering Technology student without any PC. What next is another year of laptop-less and computer-less as an IT student. How cool is that? NOT cool!

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…
