Hello there! Finally I’m back after a week not posting anything new in this blog. I was lazy those times. Sorry about that :)

But today I have the guts to update you with my whole week! Let’s see if I can reminisce them all.

On Monday, I went to Miriam College to have an appointment with the nurse for a medical check-up. Other applicants were there too (part of the school’s requirement). It took long minutes before the assistant called our names, so I was bored to death! Good thing was someone started a conversation with me. She asked me if I can look after her belongings for a while because she needed to go to the comfort room. I smiled and said “sure, no problem.” Eventually, many of us started to make friends while seated in our own chairs asking what courses we are about to take, where do we live and what is our FACEBOOK account. That was a cool thing to do. So now I have seen my future school mates.

On Tuesday, Mom and I decided to start our jogging session every morning from 6 am to 7:30 am at the sports complex. While doing dome laps I made a playlist with all Justin Bieber’s songs and listened to them until we finished. It’s good to sweat out! Refreshing!

On Wednesday, I was with my lil’ bro. After jogging we took pictures together showing on Facebook how tired we were from chasing each other! LOL. When I got home and surfing on the internet, I saw a competition on Photobucket about submitting a photo of converse shoes and the best photo will receive a gift certificate. I submit an entry since it’s easy. The result s will be declared on Friday. Not bad, uh?




On Thursday, my brother was taught by mom how to ride his bike with only two wheels. At first, he was having a hard time. He was even feeling scared and giving up, but soon he started to have his balance. When we came home, I just did my normal routine, doing my household chores, eat, sleep, internet, eat, then sleep.


On Friday, after my mom and I jogged and my brother to ride his bike, I quickly opened the internet to check the result of the contest on Photobucket. As I was there, I didn’t win the first place nor the next hundred place. But I was happy because there were 1,700++ who joined the competition and I wasn’t the last one! I was placed 155th. Not bad! I was already glad I made it that place, not to mention, I didn’t even edit my photo! Wow! I had a fun and I will do it again.



On Saturday, we went to Cavite to visit my aunt’s place and have an overnight stay. We didn’t do much but to eat a lot of Pasta, junk foods, fruits, chocolates, and many more. And it’s good to see my cousins and having a bonding with them.

On Sunday, It was Palm Sunday and the start of the holy week. We attended mass and bought palaspas for the priest to bless it, and will display in our house. When it was afternoon we all packed up our things and went home. Home at last! It’s good to be here! Finally I had my full rest.

Now it's Monday. I'm just at home having more rest :)

What was the best night of your life so far, and what made it so special?


The night when the one I'm falling in love with told me that he cares for me :) So romantic!

Which book that you've read would make a great movie, and why? Who would you pick to play the main characters?


I would like to make Fablehaven a movie, because it is full of fantasy and can be enjoyed viewing by the whole family. Full of suspense and romance :) And I hope Brandon Mull suggests to the director to make me any cast of the movie just to be there.

For the first time I had a not so good experience with you last night.

You wanna know why??

I was typing something so emotional here that tears even drop down my eyes. I was at the very end of the article and almost ready to share it with the whole wide web when I accidentally pressed a wrong key and everything disappeared! Shoot! It sucks so much! I tried to undo, go back and refresh the page, but there was no chance in retrieving it back.

I feel really angry that time. A feeling that I want to burst out so badly through punching my laptop! But I realized it was my fault too. Yet I suggest you to put an auto save just in case things will get wrong, okay?

Thank you so much.

P.S. I have decided not to put it here anymore. I can't have those exact words anymore and I'm lazy coz it's so long.

People say some really stupid things sometimes. To often it gets passed off as "cool" or, worse, "wisdom." "I've got a mind like a steel trap," someone might say. What does that mean? It's rusty and illegal in 37 states? There are famous quotes from famous people, like when Queen Elizabeth II asked the Beatles, "So, what do you do?" Or when the Foreign Minister of Vietnam said, "We are not without accomplishment. We have managed to distribute poverty equally." I particularly liked Samuel Goldwyn's classic, "A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on." Or the wise guru who said sagely, "It's like the sound of one hand clapping."

There are the classics that everyone has heard. "It's always in the last place you look." Of course it is. Why would you keep looking if you found it? "There are more fish in the sea." So ... what's the connection with "fish" and the person you just broke up with? The opposite sex is all wet? Slimy? Easily hooked? What does that mean? How about this one? "If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times." What is that ... a proverb for the math challenged? And a phrase I've never understood: "I couldn't help it." I know it means, "I couldn't stop myself from doing that", so what does "help" have to do with it? It's like, "I could care less" used to mean "I couldn't care less." It doesn't make sense.

Then there are the contradictory ideas peddled as wisdom. Take, for instance, "Many hands make light work." Okay ... but we also know that "Too many cooks spoil the broth." So, which is it? We have all heard, "Look before you leap," but we've also heard, "He who hesitates is lost." So, which is it?

When I was a junior student, I remember telling my PE reacher, "I can't do that." I don't remember what "that" was, but I do remember his response. "'Can't'," he told me loudly, "means 'didn't try'." Even at my young age I understood that that made no sense at all. "I want you to fly up to the top of that pole and catch that bird." "I can't!" "'Can't' means 'didn't try'!" Um, no, "can't" means "I lack the ability." "Go rob that bank." "I can't!" "'Can't' means 'didn't try'!" No, again. "Can't" in this application means, "I am not allowed to do what you're telling me to do." Of course, explaining the various definitions of "cannot" and their ramifications to your junior high gym teacher who is three times your size and screaming at you at a distance of 2 inches isn't likely the right choice. So I proceeded to demonstrate to my coach that, in this case, "can't" meant "I lack the skills to do what you ask." While I get the intent of "'Can't' means 'didn't try'!", I question the wisdom.

One you've all seen, I'm sure, is the bumper sticker that settles everything. "God said it! I believe it! That settles it!" This one hurts me as much as it tickles me. You see, in this structure, there are two factors that determine if a thing is settled -- 1) God said it, and 2) I believe it. I picture God making a statement and then waiting, with bated breath. "Sure," He thinks, "I've met the first criterion ... but will he believe it? Oh, I hope, I hope ..." You see, it's sheer arrogance. The sticker would make sense if it said, "God said it! That settles it!" You could tack on "I believe it" at the end if you wished, but it would have no bearing on what determines a thing is settled. God saying it is all that is required.

I'm sure we all have things we hear and, more to the point, things we say that, if we thought about them, just wouldn't make any sense. I suppose our hope is that no one is listening, eh? No, that can't be right ...

Was there ever a fictional character who you admired so much that you strived to be like him or her?

Yes! I want to be like ROSE HATHAWAY so badly, One of the characters in Vampire Academy. She's so tough and hot! Ohww... Wish she was my older sister :)
 
 
Thank God, all exams are over today! No more classes, seatworks, assignments, quizzes, projects, waking up early, etc.

All I have to do now is to attend all the graduation practices.

I have a last assignment. Our principal asked the top 6 students to make a valedictorian speech to be passed tomorrow. and I'm on top 4.

I already have an introduction.. the rest, I have no clue of what to say, or how will I express myself as me being really the valedictorian. I just can't imagine myself standing in front of the crowd reciting my speech. It was never in my dream of being in that position. ..

I'm already okay with what rank i am holding, and if I'm really going to be on top 1.. wow! that's unbelievable, and thank God for that. But I, myself, is already fine, as long as i'm included always at the honor list.

And that's what makes it hard for me to finish composing tonight.

How I wish I could do it well like how I type here in this blog.

Lots of Love,
Erica
