I wish I could go to Taylor Swift's Concert

If I'll make a list of music artists/bands that I'd like to watch performing in a concert, I'm certain to tell you that Taylor Swift will be the first one on that list. She'll be having a concert on February 19 at the Araneta Coliseum and I could only say, "Too bad, I'm still not rich right now just to expend a P12,000 for a ticket." Swift's concert in the Philippines comes sooner than I expected. I thought that it would be a few years later, a year when I can make money on my own and a P12,000 will not be a big deal to spend for a concert. I found a website where they'll be giving two tickets to the said concert. I joined, why not, maybe I'll be lucky just for once in raffle draws. The winners will be announced on February 2 so you can still participate. And if you'll win, please give the other ticket to me.hehe. I am not looking forward upon winning that ticket because doing so will only disappoint me. Hugh, super fat chance, drop it girl. I just hope that it will not be her last live performance in the country so I can still have an opportunity to see her.

There are two main reasons why I listen to her music:
  • I love country music.
  • Most of her lyrics are something that I can relate with.. Or, when I feel like to have a sad trip/senti moment her songs are bringing me to that state. (haha.. emo!)

Here's my top 10 fave Taylor Swift's songs anyway:
  1. I'd Lie - "And I could tell you his favorite color's green. He loves to argue. Born on the seventeenth. His sister's beautiful. He has his father's eyes. And if you ask me if I love him, I'd lie."
  2. Cold as You- "Oh, what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day. Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say. And now that I'm sitting here thinkin' it through, I've never been anywhere cold as you."
  3. A Place in this World - "I dont know what i want. So dont ask me, cause im still trying to figure it out. Don't know what's down this road, im just walking. Trying to see through the rain coming down."
  4. A Perfectly Good Heart - "It's not unbroken anymore. How do I get it back the way it was before?"
  5. White Horse - "This is a small town. I was a dreamer before you went and let me down. Now its too late for you and your White Horse,To come around."
  6. The Outside - "I tried to take the road less traveled by. But nothing seems to work the first few times, Am I right? So how can I ever try to be better, nobody ever lets me in."
  7. Stay Beautiful - "If you and I are a story that never gets told. If what you are is a daydream, I'll never get to hold, at least you'll know.. You're beautiful every little piece love,."
  8. Today Was a Fairytale - "You've got a smile that takes me to another planet.  Every move you make, everything you say is right."
  9. You Belong With Me - "Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find that what you're looking for has been here the whole time"
  10. And this song, was the one that ushered me to listen and love her music. It's not the first song that I heard from her, it was 'Teardrops on my Guitar', but it didn't strike anything to me. 'Our Song' on the other hand is uhm, enjoyable to listen to..hehe.. Good melody..

because a blog is not enough

Some people make their blogs as some kind of a diary. Actually, I used to be one of them. My very first blog which was on Friendster was all about my woes (ka-dramahan sa buhay!), my whinings and just anything relating to my insignificant life. I was aware that everybody can access to it but it did not occur to me that they'll be reading it. I mean, I don't think I'm worth reading for. One time, I blogged something about my classmate whom I was crushing. I remember that it was a long entry then my teacher commented to it. I was like, "why the hell is he reading it?". I posted those stuff on my blog not meant to be read by other people, I blogged there simply because I wanted to pour out what's bothering within me. The realization that there were individuals who wasted their time to read my blog, no matter how nonsense I might be writing made me conclude that there will never be a privacy on that place (also on this place). I directly deleted that blog for I felt ashamed of the things I said and blurted out. They were just too private. Obviously, I did not stop there. I switched to blogspot where no email confirmations sent to my friends' mail telling that 'Jellian has just posted something on her blog' (hahaha.. that's what Friendster does.) I feel uncomfortable knowing that a friend (unless you are my close friend) or an acquaitance is reading this site. So this place of mine is something I do not share to them (well, with some exceptions. :) ). Still, I will never get any privacy. I am constrained and limited to what I would be sharing to the world. This can't be a diary. I can't really be transparent here because there are many things which should be just mine to keep. In this case, I also have a journal slash diary because a blog is not enough.

I put in there the elements that I am not confident to share to other people. I write names, enumerate goals, complain about my life and some irritating Homo sapiens, list big dreams and crack emo stuff. I need to express myself and writing is my avenue to do it since I'm not an extrovert. Sharing everything here is an unwise act. Telling the blogosphere the name of your classmate who happens to be your crush is such a stupid thing. As long as there are matters that I need to write which are only mine to know, there will always be my diary around. And I do make sure that no one will ever read any pages of it. :)

about Hyun Bin

I've been watching Secret Garden (a Korean drama) these days. My roommate was talking a lot about it so I tried the first episode and BANG!, I'm hooked. Well, I'm not going to talk about it but if you're looking for a k-drama to watch for, you should pick Secret Garden. Yeah, I'm not going to share how entertaining this drama is for me. This post is for Hyun-Bin, the leading man behind that no. 1 drama in korea right now (I'm still referring to Secret Garden.) Aishh, this man though not really drop-dead attractive for the first look is actually a very much crushable person. The way he acts (he's really good), the way he walks, the way he stares, the way he shouts are leading you to like him much. Oh, but this is only me, I'm just assuming that we are one in emotion.
from Secret Garden

I'm such a curious person, you know, I have to research about him. I need to know more since I'm already liking him more than Jang Geun Suk(??). I guess so, I think I have to get over with JGS because I have this feeling that he is gay sissy. (shut up jellian, JGS has many fans, you want to die?!) Why should they be angry, it's what I see from my observant-to-actions eyes. Peace everyone, don't be mad at me it's just what I deeply perceive.. That's my assumption, ok? How I wish he isn't! Going back to Hyun Bin, the first thing I found out after googling him was, he's in a relationship with Song Hye-Kyo. I am not sure if they are still together because the article was posted two years ago (2009).. I pleasantly reacted to this significant fact. They are perfect for each other. Hyun Bin must really be charming and perhaps has everything a woman is looking for a man (haha) because he won Song Hye-Kyo's heart, one of the prettiest and cutest ladies I've ever seen on tv. I wish these two beautiful human beings are still in love with each other and will always be. (yay)
Pretty Song Hye Kyo

shh.. I've been playing this video a couple of times. haha. Omo! What a passionate kiss. The vid was from the scenes of their series together, Worlds Within (2008), which was the instrument for their special relationship to bud.
I had an LSS earlier with the song: So Kiss me darling, kiss me, kiss me tonight. (yak! I can't help it.)
Wait, Hyun Bin lost a lot of weight. Why?!

Wookie's Horror Movie, I Dare

My Lee Dong Wook's post gets popular this month. That post, Korean Crush: Lee Dong Wook, was written almost a year ago. After a month I posted it, I came across with Jang Geun Suk and fell helplessly infatuated with him leaving my Wookie behind. But these people straying in my blog because of Wookie made me miss this celebrity so much. In order to fill up this missing-thingy with him, I watched his horror movie. You see, that was so brave of me, HORROR movie, I dared to watch a horror movie just because of him. I actually don't like watching horror a.k.a. ghost movies. I repel to see one to avoid nightmares and heart attack(hehe). I just realize that you can really do something that you dislike for someone (lol.cheesy!). It's like saying, “For you I will.” (another lol). Talking about that creepy movie, Arang, I was really scared to the nth level! :( I was blocking my eyes to see a little yet it didn't alleviate my fear. So what I did wass, which is a brilliant idea, I put my earphones away and just put it back when there were only conversations. Bwahaha.. Well, it made a big difference. Sound effects has the power to bring you to an intense emotion.. You know what, try watching a horror movie in a silent mode, I bet you'll never find it scary.haha. I was able to sustain watching Arang to the very end because of it.

The best thing of what I watched is this person:
Yeah, you.

The worst thing, on the other hand, is this Sadako-like ghost! Yak, go to hell!

Wookie is a detective who turns out to be the killer. There are three reasons why I don't like this movie, first is its genre, second is Wookie being the killer, third is he killed himself at the end part..

I pray, that as I go to bed tonight, keep me away from bad dreams Lord. Don't allow those terrible-looking creatures invade my dreams. Thank You. Amen.

movie for the night

I just finished watching Grown Ups alone. Hahahaha.. This movie is really a laugh. Thank you Grown Ups for making me happy. I am sort of down today and it certainly changed my mood. Hahaha.. Funny, funny. I already love Adam Sandler, I mean Lenny Feder and his gang.

This is not just about laughs, jokes and alike.. Friendship that lasts is one of its highlights. Yay, I miss my high school close friends. I hope that this could also happen to us, still rocking and everything after some decades. hehe.

Favorite Quote:
“In life, the first act is always exciting but it is the second act – that’s where the depth comes in.” - Grown Ups

Seize the Year

Happy New Year dear everyone! Another year has come, whatever happened to our 2010, whether it's a triumph or a defeat, we have to say 'Babye!'. To those who had a fulfilling year (2010), 'Good job. keep up the good work.' To those who had a ride leading to no clear destinations, 'Don't worry, 2011 might be whole lot different.' :) Together, let's embrace 2011 with a big, genuine smile and an excited heart.

My 2010 was a good year. There were frustrating events, happy moments, stressing days, nostalgic nights, unattained goals, enumerable grace, learned lessons, new-found good friends, numerous unsaid words, unwise decisions, daunting but significant tasks, pails of tears, countless laughs and boring times.

I've got a pretty happy new year celebration though I'm too far away from my sweet home. I and Kuya are in Pasig at my cousin's place. This special event should be spent at home but it doesn't really matter at all because I feel 'home' here. I just wish mama, papa & Joy were here..It would be a lot merrier.
