Hindi lahat ng mga jokes ay okay lang

Mag-aapat na taon na akong may account sa facebook pero unang beses ko pa lang kagabi na mag-post ng hindi kaaya-ayang status dahil sa galit. Kaunting push na lang galing sa kanila at kakalimutan kong mabait ako. Grabe ang iyak ko sa cr ng dorm namin, pati na rin sa kuwarto ko. Sabihin na nilang queen of OA ako o killjoy, basta ang alam ko hinding-hindi ako natutuwa sa joke nila. Nakakairitang isipin na ginagawa ka nilang kasangkapan para humahalakhak sila sa tuwa. Samantalang ako ay nagpipigil sa galit. Maraming nagsasabi sa akin na hindi raw ako marunong magalit. Ang dali-dali lang magalit, hindi pa ako marunong? Nagagalit din ako pero kadalasan, tinatago ko lang sa puso ko. And I just let time help me dilute that anger until it's gone in my bloodstream. Pero may mga pagkakataong hindi na kaya ng puso kong i-deal ang mga pang-aasar na kumo-quota na. Ang pasensya ko ay hindi gaya ng text na pwedeng unlimited. Kaya ayun, kung magbabago man ang treatment ko sa kanila ay dahil yun sa ginawa nila sa akin.I don't want to be mean but I also don't want people to abuse the kindness that I have shown to them.

Tinanong ako ng isa kong kaibigan pa-tungkol sa status ko. Hindi niya maintindihan ang status ko dahil naka-BISAYA yun. Nag-bisaya na ako kasi galit na ako eh. Pinost ko yun sa facebook dahil gusto kong makita yun ng mga taong nang-aasar sa akin. Bisaya yun pero alam kong mage-gets nila ang gusto kong iparating sa kanila, na malapit na akong sumabog sa pang-aasar nila. Balik tayo sa kaibigan kong nagtanong sa akin. At dahil medyo close kami ng orgmate ko na yun, sinagot ko ang tanong niyang, "Ano ang problema mo? (with matching sad face)" Nag-explain ako ng konti at eto ang sumunod na usapan namin:
95% sa mga jokes na binabato sa akin ay hindi ko pinapansin o nakiki-ride lang ako. Pero yung joke na tinutukso ako parati sa taong hindi ko gusto, doon talaga ako naha-high blood. Kaya kong i-poker face yung joke tungkol sa kapayatan ko, sa Infinite, sa kpop, sa katamaran ko, sa pagiging mabagal ko, sa mga gusto kong hindi nila gusto at marami pang iba. Pero pagdating talaga sa tukso-tukso na yan, mas mabilis na nagiging active ang dormant kong galit.

Ikaw, ano yung joke na pinakaiinisan mo?

Create an account on Goodreads, book lovers! :)

What kind of website is Goodreads?

It is the place on the Internet where you can create a list of the books you read, wanted, hated and anything you like to associate that book with. It is the place where you could rate a novel, 1 star if it's not worth-reading or 5 stars if you love it to bits. These ratings would be helpful to others, for them to get an idea of what to expect. You could also provide a review on the site to be more helpful to the future readers of that book. It provides you recommendations on what to read next based on your favorite genre and your ratings. There, you gather the friends whom you share the same love with.


That's basically what Goodreads is. What I love about it the most is the fact that it keeps record of the books that I already read. Yes, that sole reason  is more than enough to keep me coming back to the site. Making a list is important to me because I cannot fully rely on my brain to remember every title and author of the stuff I read. A record then somewhere is a must for me. I found Goodreads the best place because I once had a list saved in a notepad in my first laptop before, but when the beloved computer crashed because of a virus, so were my documents and one of them was my list. In Goodreads, I don't have to deal with a corrupted file, viruses (or am i wrong, goodreads?) and the high possibility of losing the list. There, your list is less likely to disappear and more accessible given that nowadays internet is just around the corner. You could update it wherever you are, even if you don't use your own computer.

Another cool thing about it is that it has widgets like the one below that you could put on your site! :D

BB Cream Update: Now Using Missha

I got a new BB cream. I'm using it for a week now. 

It's Missha M Perfect Cover! It is so expensive because for only 20mL, it costs P799.00. 
Look how small it is.

Last December, I went to Trinoma to buy a new BB cream. I was actually wanting to buy from The Face Shop because prior to that, I read a beautiful review of one of its BB creams. My bad, I didn't search where were their stores. I went to Landmark which was inside Trinoma and saw stalls of different brands of beauty products. I was searching for The Face Shop and what I found was Missha. I went to its stall, just trying to see their products. There was an attendant and I asked her if there was a store of The Face Shop there. She said none and she was already up for selling the Missha product. Without her there, I don't think I would end up buying. She was a real good seller. I was able to purchase in spite of the pricey product.

She pointed to me their bestseller and that was the one that I bought. She talked a lot of good things about it. She even mentioned that Missha products were highly praised in blog reviews. I have to check it myself, she said. I told her that it was expensive for me. She informed me that Missha in Korea was the high end product. I was still in the stage of discovering the best BB cream for my face and right there, I wondered how it would do to my skin. So I was like, "Okay let's try it. Maybe it's the best BB cream that has ever been in the market. :p" And besides, though it looked so small, it would last for months as what the sales lady assured me. For me, a 800-peso product that could be used for a span of one month wouldn't be that bad.

How is it, you might ask. Well, so far not bad.hehe. I'll make a review about it later this month.

Do you know that the endorser of Missha is DBSK/TVXQ? DBSK whose members now are Yunho and Changmin, is one of the most known K-pop groups not just in South Korea but all over the world. They actually belong to my top 5 favorite groups. ^_^ I have read from a website that the trend now in Korea is that products which are being consumed by women are endorsed by men celebrities because they found out that they can draw lots of customers if the celebrity crushes of those women are the ones who promote the brand.

Please be good to me, 2013

The year 2012 had been extra good to me. I bade farewell to it with a smile. Now that another year has come, I’m hoping that this would be the best year ever in my life. There are two major things that I wanted to happen this year: 1.) to graduate this April and 2.) to top (yes, mapangahas ako) the board exam this September. I am just asking for those two things and if they’ll come true, I’ll be superbly and infinitely thankful for this year.

Since I said before that I’d share my graduation pictures from my grad pictorial, well here is my formal attire. Others will follow for the next few posts. I claimed it last November. Am I satisfied? Of course I am. I am not just proud of my big face. It has already been edited. They said that I looked so different here. Well, Photoshop and make-up made my face look better. On normal days, my hair is straight. Actually, that was the first time that I had that kind of hairstyle. Then my eyebrows were enhanced. My pimples and scars were being concealed. (I wish they also did something to my big face.haha.) So it isn't a surprise that people would hesitate if I am really that girl. 

There were four different kinds of poses that I had to choose from. Unfortunately to me, it seemed like there were only two different poses because the other two were almost identical with the other. I asked some help from few of my girl friends, I can only remember five of them, to pick the best. They selected the same pose, the one that I liked the least. Which one did I choose? It's the one that they unanimously deemed the nicest. 

That's just it for today, my friends. Belated happy new year to you. 
May we all have the most awesome year this 2013. :D
