"Procrastination is like masturbation. At first it feels good, but in the end you're only screwing yourself. "
- anonymous

i certainly did not write that quote, by the way... i just saw it on a site. it's a bit thought-provoking, i guess, and eye-catching too... and that is why you see it up there. it may inspire you to read my post... and stop procrastinating about commenting on it... =P

mapua's foundation "week" is over, and i guess classes will resume again tomorrow. no disasters coming (hopefully...), no holiday celebrations, no more breaks until the end of term. That's too bad... i was getting used to not attending my classes... hmmm... Maybe i'll cut some classes tomorrow... you know, to readjust or something... ;)

i did not go to school last thursday...since i was too tired and had other things to do... i did not get to see luna_sy's gimmick to please his girlfriend on their 17th monthsary (mental note: saving gimmick in main memory... ... ... ... done.), i also missed the 82 seconds of fame...oh well, it's not really bad at all. at least i was able to rest...and umm...iron our clothes... >_<

i went to Mapua last friday by 10:30 am only to find out that there are no classes in thermodynamics... only attendance signing. i had 4.5 hours of vacant time... i did not go to the org booths since i was slightly avoiding the quadrangle because i am not wearing pink which MICRONS were supposed to wear. well, for their information, i do not have any pink tshirt, polo or such... even if i wanted to, i cant... and well, i don't think pink looks that good on me... hehe.

i played pusoy dos to while away the time... i think i lost some money to sir ray, as it was his lucky day. i wanted to play billiards but nobody seems to play the game anymore... bummer. i did not attend my java class, because i don't want to. because it is boring... and i'm not in the mood for any seatworks...

although i had to attend my comorg class... thankfully, it was not such a loss... our professor assigned the topics we had to report... (reporting's the oldest teacher pasttime!!!) but i manage to get a very easy topic... i hope ill be able to do it as early as possible to avoid complications...

i played some more pusoy dos at the office when i came back and won some of what i lost to kuya ray, since kuya ray is not playing anymore...hehe. then we went to the gym to watch the Mr. and Ms. Cardinal 2007 (?)...

i would like to thank our sponsor, mr. armando ricardo j. aguado, for giving us "complimentary passes" to the event. i would also like to congratulate him for ranking first in the president's awardees list with the gwa of 1.10!!! i did not think that sir armand was a monster, but now i'm having doubts... he might be an alien... that would explain his extreme intelligence...hehe.

i suppose i could have made it to the list, if only i had known that it exists at all... hehe... or maybe not... i've never had a grade of 1.00 in my lifetime... unless the CWTS grade counts.

i think sir armand deliberately made a few mistakes, so that he will not get a grade of 1.00... because if he did, there will be no doubt at all that he is an alien sent to rule the world... hehe.. peace, sir armand... i blog in peace. =)

this year's pageant is a lot more wholesome than last year, there were less skin shown by girls, although the boys were a different story... i got to hand it to mr. architecture, though... it was pure guts... i mean if guts were a living thing, i'll say mr. AR is GUTS PERSONIFIED... he should have won the event... that way, we have a scandal in our hands!

the mapua audience certainly is a bad audience for a pageant... they can destroy a contestant's life... tsk tsk...

i saw alyssa gibbs at the gym by the way, ezra says she is the girlfriend of mr. che... the collegian boy... well, she looks shorter in real life...

ive heard rumors concerning the winner of the mr. cardinal... that he is not...umm... symmetrically balanced...if you get what i mean, then good for you. ;)

i also heard that ms. nursing is a model, ivankirk even posted a photo...

i was betting on ms. cs, as her skimpy dancesport sportswear certainly perked the night up. aaaaaaaahhh... i'm shouting again... hooooooooo!!!! hehe... ;) too bad, she only won second place... the next issue's coed might not be that coed-able, i'm not sure...well, not my problem. ean's.

i went to school last saturday, even though i have no classes... because most events that will take place concerned sports... i was at school by 10 am, only to find out that the event was postponed... and the next event was slated at two.

the next event was an exhibition game between former Cardinals... but i think i'll save that story for the next post...O_o

the things that i will have to do are starting to pile up.

the february issue is nearing it's deadline... it will give me some problems by this coming week, i'm sure of it... i have to finish more than half by the end of the week or i'll be having more problems.

my groupmates in design 2 are assigning me to program the microcontrollers that we are going to use for our prototype. how thoughtful of them. O_o. sir ray tells me it's easy... but well, i am going to find out soon enough... there is more at stake, i think. My pride is. I wouldn't give one of my groupmates (the one who backstabbed me to get the girl) the satisfaction of thinking that he is better than me... although he probably some ways... but i think i'm better adjusted! (bitter)

"show weakness to hide true strength" - hallmark card

i still have to learn for my software design... which i admit i still am not familiar with... i would like to learn how to program software using vb...but there isn't just enough time for everything... i had to make time for it somehow... i'll be programming some of the software, i'm sure.

add java to the list since i need to learn this for my elective too... there would be some sort of machine problem by the end of the term...

i think that time is flowing fast these days... i don't have time to do most things... i couldn't even watch tv anymore unless i had to iron clothes or eat breakfast... darn...

Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them.
~Marcel Proust

Stubborness does have its helpful features. You always know what you are going to be thinking tomorrow. ~Glen Beaman

hello everyone...i've just noticed that Blogger has a new version... it seems they took out that beta word and added some new features and such... never tried anything yet though. The ads are telling me its way, way better now...but you know advertisements...they tell you what you want to hear.

i suddenly felt tired using tagalog... maybe because i have been using the language at the Mapua Ownage forum for more than a month. I've been hanging out there for a long time. It seems spamming has its attractions...especially when you can get away with it. I was targeting the top 4 poster or top 3 poster spot and i have less than 300 posts to go to reach that point...


i've reached a saturation point though. when DRE (i think) removed some threads from the post count, more than 900 of my posts were gone like burst bubbles!!! oh...wasted time... from the fifth spot i'm suddenly back to the 15th. just like that. it certainly took my enthusiasm away. i suddenly became tired of posting there... and here i am back.

some things are gone with a blink...and my life's filled with those.



Mapua is celebrating it's 82nd foundation day. i think it's a week early, since Mapua was founded on january 25, 2005. i remember writing a seven-thousand-peso-worth essay corcerning the 80th... too bad it never got published. and i don't have the original copy. BLINK!
darn Malayan issue... My essay was flushed down the drain.

It's a drab foundation day anyway, i suppose other schools celebration foundation days WITHOUT classes. I know i'm smart (at times. -_-) but they dont have to drill us into boring classes so i'll never forget that this is QUARTERM... i think there's a hidden issue here.

Since 2005, during November, Mapua is celebrating something obscure... They used to call it Mapua-on-Sale...but because of the weird connotations that I'm sure you wouldn't miss... ( Mapua's already bought, by the way) they changed it to Mapua Unleashed.

Conspiracy bums are saying that it was a celebration concerning Mapua's name change into Malayan... but hey, I'm not one of those... yet. But unless i am very wrong, there are almost no classes during those days in november... but there ARE classes during the Foundation...


i liked the fireworks that flashed though the wednesday night sky above Mapua, though. it was another dose of the recently concluded Pyrolympics... If you were there at the quadrangle, i think you'll infer that most Mapuans have never seen fireworks before. >_<

i've just finished watching the MONK DVDs, although my mother still has not. I am currently watching HOUSE M.D. and i can say that i am now a fan of another series. it was a good decision to buy the season 1 and season 2, i think i'll go back to carriedo to buy season 3. hope there's a monk season 5 dvd anytime soon...

i'll be posting that love story, for those who are interested...but maybe not here... i don't like to see the story here... i'll tell you where...when something comes up... hehe...

i dont know if i'll stick with this English stuff... what do you think?

Happy New Year: Prologue

"Music is the language of the soul"
- anonymous

Una sa lahat nais kong bumati ng isang maligayang bagong taon sa lahat ng mga naliligaw sa aking blog at dun sa mga parating nadalaw...medyo konti na lang kayo dahil siguro nag-lielow na naman ang blogging sa TNB...yung mga dating bloggers ay nakahanap na ng ibang outlet...

tulad ko sa Mapuaownage na ako madalas...hinahabol ko ang top 10...wehehe... wala lang... ayos naman ang mga tao dun e... at nadidistract naman ako...

Matagal ko nang gusto gumawa ng entry pero medyo maraming ginagawa... bukod sa ownage may inaasikaso akong surprise para sa February... Ooops... bago ka mag-isip ng iba pa...hindi po yun date... sana lang... ahahaha.. pero para yun sa aking kamag-anak... wala munang details dahil baka sya ay maligaw dito ako pa ang mapagalitan dahil tsismoso ako...hehe...

Ang aga ko dumating sa skul ngayon dahil may software design ako... kay sir legaspi daw... (oh noes...) e 730 dapat ang time pero ayun nine pa raw darating si sir... haay... medyo inaantok pa ako ah... di pa ako nakakabawi...baka mamaya makatulog na naman ako nito sa ofis...

Dahil sandali na lang at nine na...di na ako natulog... mabibitin lang ako e... kaya eto...nagblog na lang ako...

Ginugol ko ang bagong taon sa aming probinsya sa batangas. sa lugar kung saan mas marami pa rin ang puno kaysa sa tao... pero mayroon nang bagong tayong SM Lipa... haha.

Umalis kami nung Rizal Day. alas sais pa lang ng umaga.

Matagal na kaming nagbabagong taon sa Lipa...siguro sa tanang buhay ko, iisang beses pa lang kami nagdiwang sa aming bahay... kung san watusi lang ang paputok namin naputukan pa ako sa takot kong mapagalitan...di ko sinabi na naputukan ako... pero mild lang naman...parang namula lang mata ko ng matagal... at luha ng luha...natakot din ako nun...pero dahil bata pa ako nun (8 o 9 yrs old) mas takot pa akong mapagalitan kaysa mabulag...

Malungkot kasi sa bahay pag walang operation. Nasanay na kami na sa buong taon, lagi na lang maingay sa labas... condenser...mga makina... kung ano ano pa... kung di mo pa alam...nakatira kami sa may factory... pinapatira kami nung may-ari dun for more than 20 years na ata... libre ang kuryente... laging may tubig at libre din... walng bayad ang upa...

pero malungkot dun pag bagong taon... kami lang kasi ang pamilyang naiiwan dun...kahit yung mga "kapitbahay" na katulong sa canteen ay umuuwi ng probinsya... at dahil inggit kami umuuwi rin kami. hahaha.
dahil napuyat ako sa conference at MO nung madaling-araw, syempre ginawa ko ulit ang favorite habit ko tuwing byahe... ang matulog... di ko alam kung bakit pero ang lakas mag-"hele" ng makina ng sasakyan... minsan parang di ko na lang napapansin nakatulog pala ako...para akong bigla na lang nawawalan ng ulirat... kahit sa byahe papunta at pauwi ng skul nakakatulog ako...

medyo malapit lang naman ang probinsya namin... kapag sinuwerte...mahaba na ang dalawang oras na byahe. yun nga lang at di kami swerte...kasi inabot kami ng 3 hours!

(oops...nine na pala...itutuloy...)
