Officially A Student

It's been a while since my last post (at least that's what I think). Well that's what usually happens when I am depressed. As much as possible, I don't want to blog about it.

So anyway, I am officially enrolled at the University of Baguio. After a lot of thinking done, I decided to follow my heart and took the course AB Broadcasting. It's a tough decision considering the scarcity of employment on this field but I took the risk rather than suck at a course I never wanna see myself doing as long as I live, yep I am talking about you Nursing
.

So there upon enrollment, it is still as hard as it was before
, almost 6 years ago. The process was so confusing, thank God, I met someone who assisted me the whole day, literally from 9am till 53o pm, until I finally got a hold of my encoded subjects. My angel's name that day is Kat. This is supposedly her last semester at the University but she was not allowed to enroll that day because of some issues with her account. I met her at a line going to the cashier, she was in front of me. She looked approachable so I asked her to give me the instructions on what to do first because I was totally lost. She happily helped me out, I had the instructions already but then, upon knowing that she can't enroll that day, she offered to help me out. She has been with the University for 2 years now so she was such a big help when it came to looking for the correct building for the signature part from people. It took the whole day because of the shifting process, I had to go through evaluation from the Dean and the Guidance Counselor. Good thing the GC was a workmate of mine before so I got through counseling without those kid stuff questions I need to go through (my other angel that day) thanks Bernababe loljk.

Long story short, as of the 26th of October 2010, I welcomed myself to the estudyante world. School starts next week, Wednesday. Earliest class is 7:30am Monday to Friday, so starting next week, goodbye to waking up late, my last class ends at 4:30pm. Saturday and Sunday, No Classes for me.

Right now, I am nervous about the school stuff
, at the same time busy job-hunting. I badly need a job, it's hard to look for one since most jobs available are not welcoming part time applicants. I worry myself too much you know. I want to see results right away instead of wait in God's time. Well I am doing what I can and if it is not the right time yet, I will wait. I am just worried that my mom will worry too much again because I know how hard it is to pay tuition fees for 2 sisters both studying in college. I want to help mom financially. Hope I get a job soon.

'till here. Happy Halloween
!

Purple Day

“This Wednesday, in remembrance of the gay’s who took their lives and to help spread awareness of homophobic bullying, the Nutella Corporation has decided to launch a new limited edition line of purple colored Nutella products”

I almost forgot to wear purple today. If you remember the blog I made(if not just click on this link Against Gay Bullying), I mentioned wearing a purple shirt but sadly all I have is a lavender peasant shirt (at least it's almost purple). I didn't bother taking a picture of me wearing it because I look weird in pictures except on stolen shots, I am not comfortable camwhoring fyi. So anyway, I found this article on Tumblr. It's nice to know that certain BIG companies like Nutella took part in such event.
Besides wearing an almost purple shirt, I also changed my profile picture on Twitter. It is a purple flower plus the sky, I love it.


Let us support Anti LGBT bullying.

Till here. Wonderful Wednesday to us.

FML! It's About School

Just done watching movies with D, well he went to sleep a little early but I stayed up. I missed watching celeb gossips and news on late nights. A change on my night routines, watched instead of staying in front of the PC after dinner till 3 in the morning.

So anyway, I am now waiting for typhoon Juan. According to the news it's a super typhoon, and just a couple of minutes ago, there are already some areas at Northern Luzon that's up to signal number 1, CAR so far has none yet.

Aside from the typhoon, I am a little preoccupied today. While taking a shower this morning, it hit me that it's just a couple more weeks, more or less 2 weeks, I am gonna be welcoming college life. The main thing that bothers me so much is the course that I should be taking. I keep mentioning this and yes I know, I mentioned on my previous blog that I am gonna tell you why going back to school scares me. At first, when mom and I was talking about going back to school, I was 100% sure that I want to take up BA Broadcasting. Supposedly MASCOM but since Broadcasting is now offered, I thought, it's much better for me to work at a studio rather than assigned to different places as a field reporter. Anyway it pretty much does the same thing, to report.

Reasons why it bothers me so much:


  • 1. I am 20-ish and I think there are age limits to this kind of job. One time I saw an ad on T.V. looking for reporters between 21-26 years old. FTW! By the time I graduate I'ma be 30. I attended college before but I know that the subjects I took won't be carried to the course I am goin' to take now. I am thinking that the only time I get a job is if I made it as a DL or make the list of honorable mention.
  • 2. I won't be able to take all the subjects I need for that semester because I am thinking of working part time. I can't depend on my mom for my allowance and to pay my whole tuition because I also have a sister who's in college. I was thinking of applying as a working student but mom disagreed because I won't have time for my daughter.
  • 3. I still am looking for a job, most jobs I know doesn't offer part time jobs. If you know any here in Baguio, please PM me.
I was thinking of taking Psychology, but every time I watch the News, I know in my heart that it is the job I wanna involve myself into. The 3rd course I have in mind is 2 yrs. HRM. I told my big sister about it but she said mom would disagree. You see, my mom's top priority for us is our education, to finish college(the 4 year course). I want to make my mom proud but because of my age I am not sure anymore. Nursing is the very least course I wanna take up. I hate blood and yep blame it to mom for letting her decide for me.

So you see my dilemma here? This afternoon, I got a text message from mama telling me to drop by her classroom to get the money for the down payment for school so that I can enroll early. That's when it really hit me that I am going back to school, no more full time mom/slacking.

Another thing that bothers me is the school I am getting myself involved into. I heard it's a school for sosyalera, fashionista, rich students and composed mostly of snobs. OMG, none of those mentioned is included in my vocab. And the fact that I hate crowds and group activities and insensitive teachers and classmates made of cosmetics, idk if I can last for a year. I hope I can hold on for more or less 3 years to my main motivation for this, my daughter who else?


Yeahyeahyeah, fml, don't judge, I told you my brain is cluttered.
So 'till here readers. Happy Saturday for me and Blessed Sunday to us.

Tweaks and Stuff

Hello there! I added a few tweaks for my blog. Well besides the layout, I added tabs just below the header. On my tabs I included Chat Session. If you click on that tab, we can chat using the yahoo PingBox I created yesterday. If you have the time, go ahead and check it out then drop me a line.

Besides that, I also added a widget box for twitter. It is located on the left side of my page, it is named well, Latest Tweets. I took pictures on the stuff I added but didn't include it here anymore because I figured you can easily locate the stuff that I am talking about. The next thing I'ma add is the RETWEET button but decided to do it soon anyway I don't have that many posts yet.

I am doing all these stuff before classes starts because I know I don't have enough time anymore when that happens. Speaking of school, this shit has been bugging me for weeks now, especially since I have less than 2 weeks to slack. I'm having mixed emotions right now. Going back to school scares me
but I have to, no other choice unless I want to work as OFW abroad (no offense) so that I can give my daughter a better future. That's all I can think off right now, my mind is busy wandering off.

Till here guys! Goodnight
.

:)

When I woke up today, I figured it will be the same as yesterday. I woke up around 10:30 am. Had brunch with D and Pia, wash dishes, clean the house, watch CSI, in the afternoon, I either take a nap or surf the internet until dinner, surf again or watch movies with D, tuck pia to bed, surf a little bit then goodnight. That is my life for almost half a year now, a plain housewife .

Today though there is a slight change, well not from my daily routine but on my blogger. I had my very first commenter evah!
Thank you so much Mots for leaving your thought on my post It's 10.10.10 that was yesterday. And not only that, he is now also following me . Yep, I am gushing because like on FB, I sort of received a poke from someone whose blog is so awesome and inspired me to create a tagalog blog. That is another thing that I have been busy about this afternoon. I created another blog. The blog title is Gel Gi, sort of the Filipino spelling of Jill Gee. I used Gel because mostly, when someone asks for my name like in a grocery store, they usually spell it as GEL . Originally, the blog was supposed to be a Mom blog but decided to rather post it here. I am aware that my grammar is not that good so I figured I can blog without too much groping of English words. If you noticed, I also was able to figure out on how to add smileys on my posts.

I am really hoping that I have the time to update my blogs frequently when I get back to school.
That's about it for today. Great Monday Guys!

It's 10.10.10

So today is October 10, 2010. What is special about this day besides the fact that this month has 5 Fridays and Sundays and according to some it brings luck that we have to use it properly or it is the best time to get married etc, etc....

According to a Master in Numerology, Marinah Ng Wai Leng believes it's best to stay home than risk the dangers that 10.10.10 might bring. Read more about: 10.10.10 Good or Bad?

Here at home, we use it to just be cozy and comfortable and just slack off. Mom suggests we bring Pia to the small and have our own family day since it's a Sunday but since D is still not feeling well, we decided to just stay home and do it the next morning. It's a good thing we didn't go out because the fog outside is too much that at 4 o'clock it seems like it's already 6 in the evening. So since D and Pia is taking a nap, I decided to go outside and snap some photos for my blog.





Here are a few of the shots I took. 5 different snapshots taken from different parts of our place. It is obviously so foggy. Look at the 4th picture, that shot was taken from our terrace. Because the fog is so thick, I can't barely see my neighbor's house. It is also raining hard right now and the weather is so cold that is why I prefer staying home. The last shot here was taken after the fog. Notice that it is the before(with fogs)and after(w/o fog) picture for the 5th picture and the last one. Nice view aye? I love looking at the last picture, it's like a picture for new hope.

So because of the weather outside, besides sleeping and movie marathon-ing, I also like to munch.
These pictures below are just some that I so love to cook, fish balls and fish crackers (besuto) with vinegar dip. Yum-eeee!
I'm supposed to show you another photo of my favorite food but I decided to just make another entry of that soon and because blogger is not allowing me to add another image 'am not sure why.




So anyway, this is basically what my 10.10.10 is all about. I followed what the numerologist said, to stay home. A lot of people follow Feng Shui when it comes to stuff like this. I can't blame them, anyway this date comes only every hundred years. So whatever you're trying to do today, make sure you give thanks to God for all the blessing and most especially that you are alive to experience 10.10.10.

Feel free to share your experiences for
10.10.10 on the comment box.

That's about it for me today. Still have until 10 pm to watch Disney Channel Movies with my daughter and D.

Have a great Sunday Guys!

I Hate U Mr. Gym

Was so upset last night, so upset I wasn't able to finish this blog. It's about D. For almost a week now, he's been obsessed going to the gym. What's bad about that? Well he started going to the gym with his as-of-now-best friend Niko. Like everyday since they started, D leaves the house around 1pm then comes home around 11pm. For the first few days, he first goes to their shop, then around 6:30pm, that's the time they head to the gym. When he gets home, he already took a shower because it's for free where he works out. Then he eats dinner, while doing so, he talks a little about what happened to his day. Because of the hours he uses for work out, he's too tired to play with Pia. The next morning, he wakes up around 9, cooks breakfast then for maybe 2 hours, he plays online games. When Pia, our daughter asks him to play with her, he says mommy na lang (go ask momi to play with you). After playing online games, he takes a shower then off to the gym. Yesterday was a different story though. Around 10am, his a-hole friend called, I think it ought to be a secret because he went to the room, so as for me not to hear the conversation. He then said he needs to go by 1 pm, I didn't bother asking why. So he prepared and took off. Around 5, tatay called asking what we want to have for dinner then asked if D didn't go out today and I said he did but tatay said he didn't drop by the shop. And then I found out from my sister that she saw D at the mall. I didn't receive any text message from him until he got home around 11pm. I waited for him to tell me about what happened to his day but didn't bother to instead he just keeps texting then went out again without telling me.

Am I to shallow to be upset about that? Maybe, well I am not used to him acting this way. I'd rather have him spend time drinking with his other friend because at least he just goes out twice a week. Is there a girl involved that's why he's acting weird? Definitely not. Even if his a-hole friend is known to be a chick magnet, I still don't think D has capabilities of being one, (not because of the physical aspect but it's just so not him). So anyway, D is not feeling well so instead of being mad, I let it pass and is currently taking care of him. Hmm, lovelovelove, even if that person knows how to push my buttons, I can't stay mad at him. There will be a lot more petty stuff and arguments that's gonna happen between us. And also, I am not the kind of person who gives up on relationships that easily. I compromise a lot of times and even though he is 3 years older than me, I think I am the one who acts maturely.

So anyway will be leaving you with this song from Mary J. Blige ft Jay Sean. You know what to do.

Each Tear

Have a great day guys!

Against Gay Bullying


GAY: according to urbandictionary.com

1. jovial or happy, good-spirited 2. a homosexual male or female 3. often used to describe something stupid or unfortunate. originating from homophobia. quite preferable among many teenage males in order to buff up their "masculinity"
1. "We'll have a gay old time."

2. "You DO know he's gay. Notice his homoerotic pornography collection."


3. "Man, these seats are gay. I can't even see what's going on!"

Notice the examples given.
On number 1, it says, happy; good-spirited. It says a very positive meaning. As one of a few people who has Gay friends, they truly are people with good spirit. For me, no Gay friend on a group is so incomplete. Most gays I know are the life of the party. Cross-dresser or not, it doesn't bother me to share secrets with them. They understand boy topic more than my girlfriends because they, "physically" was a boy too. I prefer to invite my Gay friends during afternoon coffees because we pass the time making okray to people we hate or talk about anything. They understand me better and when I talk to them, I don't feel judged. In other words I'd rather have a lot of gay friends and a few chosen girl friends. Because I super love Gays and support them with whatever advocacy they have, I feel like I was a Gay during my past life. Me and a few of my closest friends and even both my sisters speak Gay-Lingo especially when we are talking about the person in front of us. For me, the world is not a happy place without Gays. I honestly have nothing against gay people.

On example number 2. They are just trying to accept and enjoy life by being true to themselves. PERIOD.

On the 3rd example. They refer to it as a very bad thing. People, we are living in the 20th century already. We didn't stay and live like cave man,we evolved didn't we? We are all living in a world where anything can happen. Being gay is not like a disease that can kill. So why does it have to end up this way? The picture as shown above are Gay teens who took their lives because of bullying. Everyone has imperfections and these teens are brave enough to show what they truly are but they were treated like some kind of abomination or something. These teens are still people with feelings. So what, just because they're gay, they should be treated like dirt? I hate the world for this.

So since I am grieving for these wonderful people, count me in in participating for this cause, the Spirit Day. We are going to wear purple in memory of the recent Gay suicides which will be done on October 20. Why Purple? Well according to a fellow tumblr-ista, purple represents the spirit on the LGBTQ (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Queer) flag. For people who understands, please wear purple on again October 20, 2010 to commemorate all lives of these teens due to homophobia.

Welcome Tinky Dear :)

Welcoming back my "tinky" today!

It took 3 nights and 4 days before I finally got it back. It took that long because my simple instructions was not followed. There are 3 things that I asked them to do on my laptop. First is to remove the other OS (winXP)installed because it keeps asking me for a code (which I don't have any idea) before I can use it. Second is to remove all downloaded programs because it is awfully running slow and thirdly is to install the same OS that I have and that is W7 Ultimate. Notice the word Ultimate in bold letter, well I'll get to that later.So anyway, I left it at their shop for overnight.

The next day, excited and all to get my tinky back, had to wait till 5 in the afternoon coz' that is the only time we can claim it. When I reached the place, the technician said they just removed the other OS, didn't reformat it anymore because they can't see anything wrong with it. I said it is running slow and there are a lot of programs installed and they need to remove everything for me to install more updated stuff. They said okey but I have to leave it for another night! Pissed as I am, I said okey. Another night went by, this time I asked D to get it for me, and then came a text message from D saying that they installed a wrong Operating System, instead of W7 Ultimate, they installed Home Premium. WTF right? So I researched the shop's number (btw, the shop's name is Micro Star, along session beside Mcdo in case you're interested) then I called them immediately, the tech said they installed a different one because the one that I requested is an OS not that stable yet. Well I had been using my laptop for almost a year now, I should be the one to judge if there is a problem with it and so far I had none. Again the technician said if that is what I want then they will do it but the laptop needs to stay with them for another night. With unimaginable pissed-off face, held back, good thing I was talking to the man over the phone, I agreed but I said I badly need it the next day for my job. Good thing Cristina(my sister-in-law) left her laptop when they went to Bulacan, at least I still was able to surf, D has a desktop PC but it is also a slow poke. Finally on the 4Th day, missing my tinky so bad, was able to get it back. I tested it before I left and it's pretty much working fine now. It is way faster than before and I have Microsoft Word now instead of WordPad. They also made an effort to install Skype and Yahoo Messenger and I also have Avira as my AntiVirus.

Just want to share as well, I am not comfortable blogging using another laptop. Idk, it's like using a regular notebook rather than using my diary in sharing stuff. Hopefully, I can get to use my tinky for a long time w/o any probs. I am now careful with stuff I download and I see to it that downloaded stuff should be saved on drives D:/ and E:/. That's about is for today. Thanks for dropping by again.

_kBye_ =)
