Today Last Friday is was my birthday

Just like last year, H surprised me on my birthday. Yeah, I’m a happy girl. šŸ™‚ The week before my birthday we went to the mall and he bought me some overly priced flip flops. Then on my birthday, thought he’d be in Manila stucked on his notes while I “celebrate” (if you would call staying at home, watching tv, and eating pasta a celebration) my birthday without him. But then he arrived, ehem, unexpectedly and that made my day complete. More rants later.

Today’s my blog’s birthday!! šŸ™‚

I’ve been blogging since 2002 but haven’t had a permanent blog address so this blog turns 1 yerar old today.

That’s all.

Today is my birthday
And I get one every year
And some day…
Hard to believe
But I’ll be buried six feet undergrounf
I’ll be dead and gone, no longer around
I’ll be burried six feet underground.

– six feet under (no doubt)

I always sing this song on my birthday. šŸ™‚ Another year older.

Thanks to those people who made me feel extra special on my birthday. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I planned to stay up at home all day and sleep but my friends insisted that I go to school. There wasn’t any celebration at all but they kept me company on my birthday. Funny, I kept losing track of the date. If not for a lot of people who kept reminding me about my birthday, I wouldve forgotten it.


What you focus on grows…This message was sent to me by my sister – out of nowhere. When asked why she sent it to me, she said “wala lang.” It made me think though. It made me think about the things that’s been happening lately. Yeah, what you focus on grows. I already know that.

Anyway, I’m currently downloading mp3s that reminds me of high school lol. I’m looking for Jewel’s spirit album and No Doubt’s Return of Saturn.

First off a very belated happy father’s day and happy birthday to my dad. šŸ™‚

Well obviously I’ve been a little bit busy. I have time to blog but I want that extra time to be spent on bumming around.

For some breaking news, my sister’s got a boyfriend already. I was badly craving for pizza the whole day so I texted her and told her to ask her boyfriend to buy me a pizza which she willingly did. My lola is back from Manila and she will be staying here again. She met my sister’s boyfriend for the first time tonight and I couldn’t help but laugh at the things she said to him – recognizing the fact that my sister’s boyfriend is five years older than her.

“Bata pa yang si Charmaine.”

“Gusto ko kasi makatapos muna sya ng pag-aaral.”

“Mukha ka namang mabait, ewan ko lang kung mabait talaga.”

It was hilarious.

“Lola hindi pa mag-aasawa yan, boyfriend lang!”


Thesis update! So far so good! Few minor revisions, mostly formatting and citations.
