Bum-bu-bum-bum

Well I've been on flight mode ever since that meeting this morning. Literally flight mode. I've hanged around almost every department out of having nothing to do. So here I am doing my default boredom activity: blogging.

Yesterday I received a very nice surprise:

Pia fulfilled number ten on my What I Want entry. It really made my day and I was really happy. A thousand miles away from home and yet she managed to do this.Thanks girl! Looking forward to Belgian chocolates when you get home later this year.

I wasn't able to bring it home yesterday because I was supposed to go swimming with Ann (which did not happen because apparently her cellphone's battery died down and there was just absolutely no way I could contact her). I cannot bring it home today because I am going to meet Ayen and Jo Anne for coffee later. I cannot bring it home either tomorrow since I plan to sleepover at Banj's after bowling. So this is what I did:

I took the vase from the reception area and placed it on my cluttered desk. At least I was able to beautify my chaotic work area

Now I am going to fulfill number two later as I am going out with Ayen and Jo Anne. Tomorrow I'll be doing number three as I am sleeping over at Banj's. Thank God! Alcohol!!!

Now I think "somebody's" pretty curious as to where the flowers came from. Manigas ka kaiisip!

Long Day

My weekend did not start that great but ended quite good. I was able to have a quite a long conversation, or rather chat, with Jeff (student) last night. I realized how much I miss my students especially the ones that I really got attached to. And it was really nice that he called me ate though I was not really sure if he was being sarcastic or not. I'm looking forward to more conversations with this kiddo.

Jeff serious, napasaya mo talaga ako kahapon.

Exercised my intestine muscles to their highest levels today.

Pigged out really bad this lunch. President's birthday treat: eat all you can lunch at Saisaki, Dad's and Kamayan. California Maki galore! And oh their ice cream is so damn good!

Ok side story:

I really wanted to get those cute colorful bears that came along with those fruit shakes that they serve. But then again I would not want to spend 174 pesos for a shake and a bear or 110 pesos for the bear alone. So I was really envying the other table wherein they had this bag full of bears. I was actually pondering on making pa-cute to that guy on the other table just for the bear. Haha!

*****

Still haven't finished my current paper. Have to pass it tomorrow to my on a hiatus boss as he's still going to be on leave for one more month. It's really difficult to be alone at this point as we are in the homestretch of our expansion project.

Oh well.

Most confusing / kilig / irritating / WTF line of the day: Ang galing mo talaga, na-iinlove na ko sa'yo eh.

WTF talaga!!!

Handwriting Analysis

As I've said, I am downright bored. So yun pinatulan ko na yung handwriting analysis ni Pia at Jo. Hehe. Taken from: www.handwritingwizard.com I have highlighted those which I think is true. Well as for the others...medyo sablay hehe.



Joanna is moderately outgoing. Her emotions are stirred by sympathy and heart rendering stories. In fact, she can be kind, friendly, affectionate and considerate of others. She has the ability to put herself into the other person's shoes.


Joanna will be somewhat moody, with highs and lows. Sometimes she will be happy, the next day she might be sad. She has the unique ability to get along equally well with what psychology calls introverts and extroverts. This is because she is in between. Psychology calls Joanna an ambivert. She understands the needs of both types. Although they get along, she will not tolerate anyone that is too "far out." She doesn't sway too far one way or the other.


When convincing her to buy a product or an idea, a heart rendering story could mean a great deal to her. She puts herself in the same situation as the person in the story, yet she will not buy anything that seems overly impractical or illogical. Joanna is an expressive person. She outwardly shows her emotions. She may even show traces of tears when hearing a sad story. (naku eto hindi talaga totoo dahil madalang ako umiyak kapag hindi ako ang involved hehehe.)


Joanna is a "middle-of-the-roader," politically as well as logically. She weighs both sides of an issue, sits on the fence, and then will decide when she finally has to. She basically doesn't relate to any far out ideas and usually won't go to the extreme on any issue.




People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Joanna doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others.




Joanna will demand respect and will expect others to treat her with honor and dignity. Joanna believes in her ideas and will expect other people to also respect them. She has a lot of pride. Very true dahil ma-pride akong tao.




Joanna will be candid and direct when expressing her opinion. She will tell them what she thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want her opinion, don't ask for it! Not really as I am not the confrontational type of person. I tend to think a lot before opening my mouth. But if you really are asking for it then I will give it to you.




Joanna can be defiant. She sometimes has the attitude that if someone doesn't like it the way she is doing it, then they can just "go to hell!" This trait may reveal itself in a rebellious nature that is always ready to resist forces which she thinks are infringing upon her freedom of action.




In reference to Joanna's mental abilities, she has a very investigating and creating mind. She investigates projects rapidly because she is curious about many things. She gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but she soon must slow down and look at all the angles. She probably gets too many things going at once. When Joanna slows down, then she becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, she must slow down to do it. She then decides what projects she has time to finish. Thus she finishes at a slower pace than when she started the project.


She has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. Her mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. She can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Joanna can then switch into her low gear. When she is in the slower mode, she can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. She is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip.




Joanna is a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth. This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. She needs to visualize the end of a project before she starts. she finds joy in anticipation and planning. Notice that I said she plans everything she is going to do, that doesn't necessarily mean things go as planned. Joanna basically feels good about herself. She has a positive self-esteem which contributes to her success. She feels she has the ability to achieve anything she sets her mind to. However, she sets her goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach". She has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, she will not take great risks, as they relate to her goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, her self-perception is better than average.




Joanna is sarcastic. This is a defense mechanism designed to protect her ego when she feels hurt. She pokes people harder than she gets poked. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time. Like duh! I can honestly say that I do care about how other people will feel. Pero marunong ako manabla kung ito ang ibig sabihin nito.




Joanna has a temper. She uses this as a defense mechanism when she doesn't understand how to handle a situation. Temper is a hostile trait used to protect the ego. Temper can be a negative personality trait in the eyes of those around her. I am very patient. I flare up when I feel that things are just too much.




Joanna is selective when picking friends. She does not trust everyone. She has a select group of people that are truly close to her, usually two or three. She is careful when choosing her inner circle of friends. I am like the most friendly and open person you'd ever find.



Joanna has a healthy imagination and displays a fair amount of trust. She lets new people into her circle of friends. She uses her imagination to understand new ideas, things, and people.

*****

So there, may tama, may sablay. I guess human beings are just too complex to be boxed with these kinds of analyses. Pero nakakatuwa naman siya kahit papaano .

Lalo na sa taong nabuburyong.

Eventful

My day started with me having to go to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for me to pass the semi-annual reports of our Cebu depot and Iligan plant. The thought of going there extra early did not cross my mind as the previous time that I had been there, there weren't many people. Boy was I wrong.

I should have thought of the Filipinos' affinity for beating the deadline. I arrived there at about 9 AM, one hour after PDEA opened, and I was already number 40. Typical government office, everything was snail-paced. As if that was not bad enough, I did not notice that I should've gotten a number from the other table. Hindi kasi nagbabasa ng instructions na naka-post, dalawa pala yung pila. Shunga. I got a yellow-colored number when I should've gotten a red one. So I got another number, good thing that the red line was a lot faster than the yellow line. What could make this scenario worse? I was dying of hunger and I really wanted to pee but due to the fact that I might be called next, I had to hold back my urinary bladder baggage.

Sinisisi ko si Tito Sotto dito. Bakit kasi kinailangan pa niyang pumunta ng PDEA kung kelan deadline, naubos tuloy lahat ng employees kasi nagpapalapad ng papel sa kanya. Buti sana kung may gwapo doon, kahit pa kainin na ng bituka ko sarili niya.

*****
Mike and I had coffee this afternoon amidst the rains. Funny, no actually sort of weird story, as to how this happened. Yesterday afternoon, he texted me that he would be treating me coffee. So ano naman ang weird doon?

He texted me when he was just a few steps away from me. He could have called my direct line, as he always does, but he had to text me. I wonder why? Labo.

Oh and another weird thing today about him. He liked the scent of my body spray (candied apple from Bath and Body Works) that he sprayed it on himself. Kumusta naman yung kalalakeng tao eh amoy apple?

So yun, amoy pabango ko sa marketing at magka-amoy kami.

*****
I swear to God that I would not be riding the MRT anytime soon. Sir Bombee had to drop me and mother Alma (my surrogate mother in the office) at Robinson's Pioneer because he had to attend to something in Greenhills. Mother and I had to ride the MRT; she's headed towards Santolan whle I would be getting off at North EDSA. Guess how many trains had to pass by before we were able to get in one?

Effin six trains! WTF?! Six trains!

Now what's worse than that? The fact that you have to strategize effectively to be able to squeeze your butt inside. Josko! Makikipagpatayan ka muna bago ka makapasok sa loob eh.

Dahil dyan panatiko na ako ng bus.

Lessond from a Stylus

Last night I almost wrecked my phone.

Story: I cannot get the stylus out and no amount of shaking could. So being the natural-born “nagmamarunong” me, I decided to dismantle the casing to free the stylus. Bad move.


Good thing that before I do major damage to my four-month old phone, I figured out how to release it without having to probe inside its fragile body.


Moral Lesson: May mga problemang madali lang pala solusyunan pero masyado nating pinapakomplika nang hindi naman kailangan.


Huwaaat?! Nagawan ko talaga ng moral lesson yun?

Bowling Fiasco

I like sports and I would like to believe that I am quite athletic, or let's just say more athletic than your average female. I love the feeling of sore muscles ( sabi ko na masokista talaga ako eh). Currently, I swim weekly at MASA. Last year I played badminton with Ana every T-Th at Celebrity Sports Plaza. Back in college, I played basketball and volleyball and I jog everyday around campus. Being active detoxifies me, that's why any sport that does not require me to sweat does not interest me.

MVC holds an annual bowling tournament, the first day being last Thursday. Guess how I fared?

I sucked a lot!

Gawd I think I was my team's liability that I wanted the earth to swallow me last Thursday.For heaven's sake, the last time I held a bowling ball was back in 3rd year high school during PE class. Oo sosyal ang Pisay may bowling lanes.

Basketball na lang kasi!

*****
I was able to get home last Thursday at about 12:30 AM. Paranoia creeped in my veins during what seemed like a never-ending bus ride along EDSA. Sabi ko makarating lang ako ng Quezon City Hall, makakahinga na ko ng maluwag. Thank God I was able to get home safely. Next week, I'm sleeping over Banj's.

Suddenly I missed my Chem Eng friends and orgmates.

Back in college whenever I would be going home late, even if my apartment is just meters away from where I was coming from, they would either be texting me minutes after asking me if I am already home or they would be asking me to text them the moment I enter my door.

Sadly, nobody cares as much in the office. Huhu...

Yuck mag-drama ba?!

*****
I met up with Banj yesterday at Coffee Bean in Greenbelt 3. After months of being on hiatus and major body clock wrecking, finally I was able to see her.

I realized that men and women really do think differently as I presented to her the same situation that I confided with Jomar last week. Same time, same place, same mocha frap. Banj's assessment was for me to be confrontational so as for certain actions to be justified while Jomar's was to act normal so as not to make a big deal out of things.

Anyway, I still have to think about my game plan.

*****
I left my Nokia phone on top of my CPU in the office. Had it been the P1i, I would have gone back immediately this morning. But since it was the old phone, which currently has no load, I am not very eager to have it back. Mahal kaya ng pamasahe.

Disturbia

Disturbing
I am beginning to hate KC Concepcion because she is just everywhere! From EDSA billboards to TV ads and even while I am skimming through the racks of clothes in Bayo there was KC suffocation. Whoever had the idea of giving her an album is absolutely insane. She can sing alright but not in this level! I am absolutely annoyed with her so-called hit single Imposible, anybody could see that she is trying so damn hard to venture into the alternative-rock genre and decided one morning that she will be the next Yeng Constantino. Because of this, I try to avoid lurking inside Bayo so as not to have her song playing inside my head and the image of her Afro-American ASAP hair ‘til the time I go to sleep.

In my honest opinion, she’s way better in still life.


More Disturbing
Ann, Narod and I swam at the Makati Aquasports Arena last night. The past times that Ann and I went there, we leave Ayala at about 6 PM (aboard a bus), get off at Guadalupe then ride a jeep to MASA. Travel time: 30 minutes.

Yesterday we followed the routine and boy did we ever wish that we didn’t. Because of the effin’ oil price increase, the commuting public ballooned tremendously and due to this, we suddenly had to rethink our strategy. We walked towards Greenbelt 3 and thank heavens we were able to get a cab by 6:30. MASA closes at 8 PM and Narod is already enjoying his laps by this time. Our streak of bad luck hasn’t ended just yet as traffic was bad everywhere so we made a detour. What’s worse? It was as if we have boarded a taxi with a psychotic cab driver. Feeling close si manong at hindi nakakatuwa ang tawa niya dahil para siyang may saltik.

Thankfully we reached MASA by 6:50 but disappointingly I was only able to swim a total of 6 laps (300 meters) because of time constraints.

Disturbing to the nth level
I have been very agitated with consecutive news about infants. Last Monday as I was listening to Chico and Delamar on RX 93.1, Del reported about a 4-month old fetus placed inside a jar which was hidden inside a basket of fruits. The basket was donated during the 9 AM mass at the Quiapo Church last Friday. The priest, unaware of the horrifying contents of the offering, took the basket and brought it to his relatives’ house for partaking in their weekly lunch. Much to their surprise was the aborted child inside.

Today, as I listened to AM radio while cruising EDSA, there was news about this three-year-old kid who was raped and was banged to the wall after. She was brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development by her parents and abandoned to eternity.

Then there was this newborn baby who was thrown like a rag doll outside the window of a plateless cab along Roxas Boulevard.

What kind of society do we have?! For innocent children to suffer like this is unforgivable. But then I was hit with hypocrisy and I am ashamed of it. Once, not too long ago, I also thought that if ever I get pregnant and I am not ready for it (and I am very unprepared I tell you), I would be getting rid of it.

Thinking about it now, I know that I would be burning in hell if ever I do just that.

You do something stupid, be prepared for the possible consequence. If you cannot afford to raise a child, give it up for adoption instead. My conscience would bug me forever and that is a lifetime’s worth of torture.

Stressifying

After 45 years, I again went to ride the MRT because of some stupid credit card thingie. Confused? Ok, I had to go to BDO onsite at SM North and have my ID and credit card photocopied because that stupid teller overlooked my application for the magazine promo (I would be getting 3 months worth of Cosmo for free because I had already charged 3000 on my credit card). So instead of sitting comfortably in Sir Bombee's Crosswind, I had to tread the ridiculous MRT crowd (who by the way increased by about 30% due to the effin' oil price increase).

Gawd!!!

I swear to God, even if I get home really late, I will make it a point to ride with Sir Bombee. Walang sinabi ang pila ng NFA sa pila ng MRT! Ni hindi mo na nga mawari kung nasaan yung dulo eh sa dami ng liko. Parang "Uy dulo na" Eeeeh!!! Unang liko pa lang yan andon pa yung dulo.

Anyway there was this pretty girl that I was really checking out during the ride. She kinda looked like Maggie Wilson. I just have this habit that whenever i see a pretty girl, I can't seem to look away from her face.

Lesbo mode on!

*****

I had a presentation with Mike today. Super crammed, super unprepared presentation. Hindi na natuto nung college. But one thing I have mastered with the art of cramming is that always, always make it seem that you know what you are talking about even if you are guessing. Magpanggap kang matalino kesehodang hindi mo naman talaga alam ang sinasabi mo.

I actually had difficulty collaborating with Mike because we were both swamped with work last week. Also for some reason, Mike was aloof for sometime and I really have no idea why. Bakit ka niyo? Bigla na lang niya ko hindi linalapitan at hinihiritan na medyo kakaiba kasi papansin 'tong batang 'to. Nyahaha! In short, nahirapan akong timplahin siya dahil masungit siya at hindi makausap. Nasobrahan ata sa kape. Tapos back to normal na siya ulet kahapon. Ang labo mo dude. Meron ka ba?

At dahil ako ang gumawa ng powerpoint (at dahil nadadadaan ako sa suhol)...may utang kang kape sa'kin Mike. White Choco Dream Latte ng Coffee Bean dahil ayoko ng Starbucks. At dahil na-retrieve ko lahat ng emails mo, samahan mo na ng hash brown ng McDo.

*****
I have proven that my stress level has reached its breaking point because of the following:

1. I continue to have falling hair. Goodness, I fear that one day I might just have alopecia.

2. My cycle started five days earlier with super abnormal trends.

3. Again, I am having difficulty sleeping. I tend to be very drowsy only to toss and turn for about an hour. Midnight and I am still wide awake.

4. I binge eat. I ate cheesedog for breakfast. And I do not eat this kind of food for breakfast. I ate sharksfin for dinner. And I do not eat dinner.


I should be taking a shower now.

Napansin ko lang yung last five entries ko (including this one) letter S and title. Hehe.
