AUGUSTRATION!

(august frustrations)
It’s the start of the ‘Ber’ months and I hope some wishes will do come true… after all, it’s just a few days away from Christmas… hai, hope the coming months will be a lot better!

I HATE THIS THREE LETTERS: S L R

Single- lens reflex camera, when can I have one? Hai, I swear that when my dad calls from abroad again I will never forget to ask him to buy me one. I know it’s expensive but maybe we can work it out, marame naman sa quiapo eh. I don’t know but I think… or rather… I believe that I have it, given the proper gadget… I can pursue my niche in photography.

Right now, I am stuck with Cybershot, not so cyber for me though. But thank you Lord for all the blessings.


NOW THIS THREE NUMBERS: 1 6 8

Yeah, I have been planning to shop in station 168 since July actually, and yet until now, I haven’t gone anywhere near Tutuban. To be honest, I’ve only been to Tutuban, Divisoria or Station 168 for less than 5 times only, considering that I am studying in Ubelt and I actually reside only somewhere in Pureza. Whenever I have savings for my shopping journey in 168, gimmicks, biglaang inuman, school expenditures get in my way, argh! I envy those who have showed me GOOD stuffs they’ve bought in Tutuban, with a very GOOD price as well.

I have new clothes though, yet I prefer to buy cheaper ones this time. But thank you Lord for all the blessings.

AND THIS NUMBER: T W O (2)

I have joined the recent CEU’s SELAMS Debate Contest. I am teamed up with Fritz and Keene, it’s their first time to join, while this is my second time. I am very fortunate because the first time I joined last 2006, our group grabbed the best debating team =D This year’s premise is “Federalism as the key solution to the present economic crisis”. I have to admit, it was nerve cracking, brain crushing, yet very challenging! We are on the opposition side, and on the very last minute we decided to put me from the position of deputy leader of the Opposition to Leader of the Opposition. I was surprised myself when all the jitters vanished and all I wanna do is scream out all the points of information we have congregated. But somehow I wasn’t able to do it. Some saw my effort, but I didn’t. We ended up as the 2nd best debating team, and it was even a tie between us and team B (there are 4 teams/ 2 premises). The funny thing is there aren’t enough silver medals since the remaining medals are bronze (the tie wasn’t expected of course), and those silver medals were handed down to team B since they’re the 1st one to come up stage. But of course we will still get our silver medals, to follow up. Now why am I frustrated? Simple, because being in 2nd place is the most crucial of them all. When you’re the 3rd, it’s easy to accept that maybe, you really did fall short. No need to complain if you’re the 1st. But being the 2nd, it makes me wanna ask myself: “If we did better, just a little more push to be better, could we have won?” Being in 2nd place is like being ‘almost there’. ALMOST!


They said that around 30 in our college were screened for the debate, so the chosen 12 who competed were the cream of the crop. I’ve received congratulations and praises after though, but still I guess I expected more from myself since we won the first time I joined. But thank you Lord for all the blessings.

FINALLY THESE LETTERS: L B S

Ow yeah, lbs, or pounds! This time many can relate to me… RAISE YOUR HANDS IF YOU’RE ONE OF US! Ang mga pumalya sa diet! Sorry naman, pero it’s so hard! Considering my tight, tiring and terrible schedule, the only fortress for relaxation besides sleeping and texting ‘him’ is to eat. I WANT TO HATE DINNER, BUT DINNER DOESN’T HATE ME =( Ow well, what shall I do, I’m gaining weight, I’m losing the sexy figure (waaaah, kabog!). Summer was hell for me… that was the time I bloated big time (if only bloated means bloated with water)! Anyone wants to hit a punching bag, my arms are very much eager to help you. Or anyone in need for a support in swimming, my bilbils (can anyone tell me the English of this word?) are very ready to help you float in water. And of course, want palo-palo for your labada? Or for anyone’s initiation maybe? My fatty pata is on the go to serve you!



*C’MON LET’S NOT EXPECT ANY BODY PICTURE HERE, PUHLEASE, I’LL DRINK MORE FIT&RIGHT FIRST BEFORE I DO THAT, DESPERATE MEASURES CAN MAKE YOU VULNERABLE TO ADVERTISEMENT*

I think I am fat, but they say I am only chubby (wow ha, is that a relief?), I miss my curves, but I still get guys though, haha! I hate being fat, my chest can’t get any bigger. I want to attract perverts no more =P But still thank you Lord for all the blessings.

YEAH AUGUSTRATIONS…

August frustrations.

I am only human, I do complain, I do get disappointed, I don’t always get what I want.

But then I also realized that I shouldn’t be frustrated at all, that I have survived, that I didn’t cry a river for whatever reasons lately, that I have a Cybershot while the rest settle for less, that I can still plan to shop while the rest can’t even squeeze it in their budget, that I am in 2nd place while the rest didn’t even made the list… and that I am gaining weight, while the unfortunates have nothing to eat.

THANK YOU LORD FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS!
