The nicest comment that would make me really happy to hear is:

"Hey, you lose weight/You're thinner than before"

On being ambitious

My professor in one of my major subjects told us that ambitions can take you places. The higher your ambition, the likely you'll achieve greatness.

That advice fueled my determination to dream big and achieve greatness. HAHAHAHA. If you're close to me, you may already know how eager am I to become an exchange student, there are plenty of opportunities for me to become one (if I really want to) but since I've been studying in college for the longest time ever (lolz), I decided to not pursue my dream.

My prof talked about MS programs abroad and the process to secure a scholarship if you want one. First you gotta be at the top 5 or 10% of your class, now that's not easy, but I believe that if you're determined, then you can make it.

That leads me into thinking, why not try and achieve that feat? I mean, I want to have my masters (but I'll work first), and I want to have it abroad, as in seriously. Where to? SPAIN. LMAO. IKR?

As we have language electives at school, I first took Italian (because I was not fortunate enough to get Korean), and I was thinking if I should take Japanese next, but then it changed to the idea of taking French (someone told me it will be useful in my field), and now I'm 100% sure that I'll take Spanish. I hope this decision won't change. And I'm hoping my dream of going to Spain will come true someday (+ Spain is sort of historical right? History has a special place in my heart).

Sergio Ramos ♥

First of all, pardon me for the post below (this will be an account of how I came to like Sergio Ramos). I'm doing this post because I do not want to forget how I first saw Ramos and what was my impression of him. Why? I think I'm becoming a huge fan :)


July 12, 2010.

I was supposed to leave my house at around 9 am because it takes 3 hours time to travel from my house to my dormitory (and I have to be there at 12 and also I have an exam by 2pm).

I was all geared up to leave but at the last moment I turned on the TV in hope of catching a glimpse of the news, so okay basically there wasn't any news that time, so I tried looking at all the channels, and I happened to see a replay of the Final's Match between Spain and the Netherlands.

An hour before that happened, I went online and saw that Spain had one, I never really watched football, and I don't like it because all they ever do was to kick around and scoring was difficult, I was not even interested in the World Cup even if a lot of my friends were crazy about it. When I checked on my FB wall, I noticed that a lof of my friends were including Torres on their status, so I then concluded that the guy must be hot.

Having that thought, I decided to watch a little bit of the game just to see how Torres looked. And the first one that caught my attention was this dude with the long hair and a headband - would you believe that? I was like "what a guy, ang ewan lang ng itsura"

Looking at his back, I thought he might be Torres 'coz he looked good (that was before I saw the headband), however after I saw his face, I said to myself that he is not Torres, I did not even find him handsome, or even cute at all, I find him irritating because the camera always focuses on him (and I was running out of time since my mom was asking me if I'll be leaving). And so because of that guy being frequently shown, I learned that he is Ramos.

And so the game went on, and still there was no sign of Torres, instead what I always saw was Ramos and his headband. The image was kinda growing of me but I ignored it because my only goal was to see Torres before I leave. My mom was getting impatient, asking me if I was leaving, and I told her a few more minutes, she knew about my wish to see Torres and was side commenting on Espanya's players. A few minutes later, I was getting into the game (the thought of seeing Torres being forgotten) but then I knew that I had to leave, and so I did.

Later that afternoon, I was contemplating on the match, and I learned two things: Football is one hell of a game and second: Ramos has made his impact on me.

Two days later, I surfed the net. And you know what I did first? I searched "Sergio Ramos", why? Because its the first name that came to mind (why wouldn't it? it was his name that I always saw during the game), next thing I did was to search for Fernando Torres (I borrowed all the newspapers that one of my roommates has the previous night so that I could familiarize myself with the players.

The thing is, I opened both Ramos and Torres's profiles, but I decided to see Torres' first (I thought that he should be first because I was worrying that people might see me opening Ramos' first). And what did I learn? Torres and I shares the same birthday!!! How awesome is that? It's like we're meant to be, however he's already married, so I decided right then and there to forget him (haha, how cruel).

Then there was Ramos. I opened his profile and at first there was nothing but still there's something (the feeling's weird), and his birthday's also close to mine.

As the days went by, I was starting to think of Ramos constantly, and then I don't know how it happened, but I learned that I already like him.

After seeing him play, the doubtful like transformed into genuine admiration. In any sport, I don't particularly notice defenders, but in case of S.Ramos, I can't ignore his defenses, he's good or great (as far as my noob football eyes are concerned). And from the articles of him I'd read, he's one of the most dedicated and nicest soccer stars around. Really, what more can anyone ask for??

The Treaty Of Tordesillas

The Treaty of Tordesillas (1494), a treaty between Spain and Portugal to divide their newly discovered lands outside of Europe, in the process, Spain conquered ME the Philippines.

placed in a new context..

The Treaty of Tordesillas is the competition of Spain and Portugal to win me over, especially between Ramos (Spain) and Ronaldo (Portugal). In this case, Spain won. LMAO. I can dream right?

So what am I being geeky about?
my own history
: The first soccer game I watched from beginning to end is the WC game between Spain and Portugal. How awesome can it get? That's a first ;)

The reason why I'm eager to see this game is because of Ramos-Torres-Ronaldo. How exciting can a game be with boys like these on the field? My heart still goes out to Sergio Ramos, no doubt, and to be honest I think my emotions intensified. If you're going to ask me which I'd prefer more: an offensive or a defensive player, I'll go for the defensive one, and I think Ramos is one of the best defenders out there. As in I can't take my eyes off him whenever he's playing (I always focus my attention on his spot).

The picture above made my heart skip! Ramos deflecting Ronaldo. OMG. I don't know a thing about soccer but I think that block (?) was amazing.

I better stop now. :) The thing is, I already love football, a game flies by so fast that you'll yearn for more :D


*Post World Cup Syndrome.

I am experiencing one.

And I'm not even a football fan (up 'til last week, all I'm familiar with is David Beckham).
However, when I was preparing to go to my dorm last Monday, I happened to catch a replay of the finals (bet. Spain and The Netherlands), and I was so mesmerized that I'd rather watch it than leave my house.

Anyways, I'm sure it's not surprising who I sided with: Spain, no doubt. Why? Because of its players. I know. I know how lowly it may sound, but at least I'm telling the truth. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I was kinda curious to know who Torres was ('coz his name's always on my friends' FB stats), and while watching, I was guessing who he is, but I learned later on that he did not play on that game. So then, I saw Ramos, and though I did not find him handsome, I was attracted to his headband (hahaha, I'm such a weirdo) and now, I think I like him best.

And so what I'm practically doing now is downloading matches where Spain played (not all, but most of it), and I read all the newspapers containing FIFA related news. And guess what? I think I'm gonna be a football fan. WEEE, another sport to get addicted to/to follow (I heart sports)

p.s. how I wished I watched the whole World Cup :( on the bright side, the next cup would happen on 2014, I hope I'd be rich then, so I can go see it live xD


This day's gotta be the busiest day I had for months (academically speaking).

With reviewing for my Physics exam + HW in my major subjects, I was basically occupied all day long.

It's a great feeling though, even if it's making me crazy, I felt a sense of accomplishment on what I did. Plus, I didn't even watched anything (though I was most tempted to continue rewatching Skip Beat)

The last time I reviewed this hard for an exam was like 1 and a half years ago (talk about being a lazy student).

Time Dilation explains my thoughts on watches. And I think the theory on special relativity is quite awesome (though I only understood 10% of what it says)


I made an astonishing discovery:

I can't smile. LOL. It turns out that if I try to, it appears to be 'forced'. OMG.

I used to smile with my teeth not showing, and when I discovered that it's good to show your teeth at times, it's better.

Anyway, here's a photo of mine (above) when my friends and I watched Eclipse (last 30th). Noticed something, or should I say, noticed someone missing? HAHAHA. I can be mean sometimes.

me and my highschool friends. I really missed them a lot. (and see how forced my smile is?, arggghhhh, LMAO)

Being non productive

Cramming? No Way!

my quotable quote according to my blockmates.

Okay, I hate cramming, as in super hate. So, I do things at the earliest possible time, which makes my blockmates think that I am this person who is super dedicated to her studies, but apparently I'm not.

Back in HS, I would say that I am, but college? No. Still, I hate to cram. I finish my HW as soon as I can get my hands on it, like typing words as they crossed my mind, without even rereading and editing, yeah, that's how I accomplish things xD. Then after, I spend my time bumming around.

I believe in the saying "hirap muna bago sarap", that's one of my philosophy in life. HAHA

Another fact, I don't do HW, etc on the dormitory, I do it at home. Dormitory = place for doing pleasurable things, House = I can concentrate more on school stuff.

However, today, I can't seem to concentrate. I ended up looking for a blogger template and customizing my blog (it took me hours to arrive at my current layout). And also, I made an inventory of all the dvds I have (I was longing to do this for the longest time).
