Cut for the hueg pic which Yukeh helped me edit! )

Um. So yeah. I'll be going on my immersion from tomorrow until late Sunday afternoon. I humbly request the usual peeps on my flist to keep track of any particularly interesting entries ones about half-wits included for me, so's I know where to click in the shitload of entries that I'm sure I'll have to go through when I get back. D:

With all the food and special boy scout stuff I have at my disposal, I feel like I'm going to trek into the deepest recesses of the Philipppine on some MGS-esque secret mission rather than embark on an out-of-town trip. I <3 my dad. XD

I shall have drabbleage when I return, I promise! D:

O HAI [livejournal.com profile] themodestotter WELCOME TO MY FLIST. <33

Now for some srs biznis. I write most of this post at the risk of sounding bratty and vain, but that IS what LJ is for at times, isn't it? Beyond the crack and gay.

Cut for girl talk and other oddities. )

I suspect that part of the reason why I got this pissed at my cook is because of several very odd but annoying incidents that occurred while I was working/chillaxing the other night. It might also be a sign that my period is coming. I'll leave it at that.

Thankfully, participating in one of the usual spamfests that occur on [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu's LJ due to her awesome flist people returned my Zen, which I greatly needed to get through the one class I had for the day. Then I got to go out and drink coffee with [livejournal.com profile] _stillframe_. I actually like those new lattes that Starbucks has come out with. o_o

Will be going to the office to earn some more moneyz start gathering the information I need for the company website. My dad and my aunts won't be there, though -- they're all going to Batangas tomorrow.

On other news, I am so not working on my thesis.

...I'm hee-hoing.

DAMN IT, [livejournal.com profile] sindapa, THIS IS YOUR FAULT.

Er. So right now I'm in the office, downloading pr0n Wordpress themes. I managed to set up the portal for the company website (pathetic-looking, I know), so now I'm just gathering all the files I need and mulling over how I'm going to build everything else. I'm seriously considering using the Wordpress CMS as my backend for... well, just about everything. It seems a whole lot more appealing than HTMLing my ass off. It's been too long since I've touched codes, and the easier the interface, the happier I'll be.

Yesterday was Cut Class All Day and Do Org Stuff Day. Spread AWKWARD TURTLES! love to all the Litsoc people manning the book sale, and hung out with [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu. Wasn't able to put in any Odin Sphere tiem because I had to gun around 18 readings for Theology class. Turns out I'll have a long test soon.

Peter was tipsy the other night and insisted on sitting in the back with me -- I won't explain how, but let's just say that my ear got caught by the snapping handles of my plastic case and verily ripped my right earring off. So I'm earring-less again, and not very happy about it. ALL THAT EFFORT GOING NOWHERE.

Lesson learned: Bap Baby Brother next time he drinks on a school night.

Hur hur. Formations meet tomorrow, along with a quiz in Theo. Saturday will quite possibly be eaten up by Read or Die duties, which leaves Sunday for bumming. I'm sort of in limbo because my thesis is finished (for the moment), and I'm hoping to get some writing done. As I've told [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu and a few others, I can no longer churn out page after page of shit then go "OMG LOOKIT WORLD I WROTEZ SOMETHINGZ!" in good faith. It's not so much the feedback I dread, but the very idea of me putting out something that just doesn't match up. Then there's the fact that I just don't seem to have the time to really sit down and write because of school and other RL things.

Then there's the sheer number of projects I've accumulated, and am actually considering doing. After spending nearly every free moment I had writing in my first and second years, I devoted my third through fifth years of college to RL duties/reading. And you know how writers just absorb ideas and inspiration wherever they may find it. It's both thrilling and frustrating to have all this stuff stocked up and have no way of really channeling it out because there's simply no means to do so yet.

...Oh, the agony of writing. At least I've gotten much better. I think. x_X

That reminds me. I really ought to fix up the next chapters of my India submission. I haven't been able to focus on it at all for more than a few months now. Shoutout to [livejournal.com profile] redplasticglass and [livejournal.com profile] subdivided: I am so sorry I haven't been in touch and all. >_

I spent my first day on the job at my dad's office just this Thursday, where I realized that I have a whole lot of recovery work to do for the website they want me to maintain because my brother is an emotional retard and that the Internet connection is a hell lot faster there than it is at my house. I've got a meeting with my dad and my aunt -- head of Sales & Marketing -- this coming Tuesday. I'll probably start working for realz by then/

Yesterday was pretty much unproductive if you were to consider the academic aspect of things, but that couldn't have been avoided given the fact that it was Faculty Day and two out of my three classes were canceled. I would've loved to skip it in favor of lounging around some more with [livejournal.com profile] laurgasm and [livejournal.com profile] _stillframe_, but it was Third World Lit II with Sir DM, and we all know how much I love that man. He's given me an A twice in a row! :D

58321 / 73122 words. 80% done!

Stayed up REALLY late (and I therefore got to keep [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu company while she pulled a 16-hour shift at her workplace) in order to finish the first arc of Bloodsport in NaNoWriMo, which I did -- that leaves me around 14,000 more words before I hit my planned quota (see progress bar above), and more than enough time to kick start Interlude I. I do plan on continuing to write all the way until November 30, but I'm going to slow down phenomenally after I reach my goal. Thesis is a-coming, yo.

I somehow managed to wake up by 8:30 and immediately zipped over to the humble abode of my cousin [livejournal.com profile] ryvaeus -- I had the novelty of watching him flail around before we went to the Evil Fully Booked Flag Store at the Fort in order to do some Lit Major-style book hunting. [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu hooked up with us later, and we ate at two very lovely restaurants for lunch and desert. Spent the next few hours back at my cousin's house before he headed off to a concert. Paper Mario rulez.

Congratulate me. I could've gone home with P2500 worth of new books and no savings to speak off. I only came home with two novels this time. >_>

My thesis adviser wants me to send in what I've managed to accomplish for my thesis thus far (read: Not Much At All) by Sunday -- after I do that, I'm going to spend the rest of the day chilling out, possibly reading Gaudium et Spes for Theology class and upping the word count some more for NaNo.

...There are so many movies I ought to be watching. ~_~ The only thing that's stopping me is the fact that I want to read the comic/book versions of the films in question before I even think of going to a movie theater for them.

On other news, Avatar the Last Airbender has joined my list of top fandoms.

Kais. Time to stop slacking off nao.

P.S. Can anybody on my flist rec any good LJ communities or websites for music whorage? I'm trying to find ways of abusing the connection over at the office whenever I'm there, but I don't want to do any BT downloads.

EDIT: Chickadees, I think I've been around the Internet long enough to know what search engines are. My apologies for not being specific about the request above, so let me do it now: I'm looking for specific websites, LJ communities and blogs to download music from. That I'm asking means that I don't want to type in "mp3 downloads" in google and wade through millions of links for an audio-fix.

Hay. Some people. For the lulz, I tell you.

Yaoi no Hi celebration at Mall of Asia. Took [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream along for the ride, where I met up with [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu, [livejournal.com profile] sindapa, [livejournal.com profile] khursten, [livejournal.com profile] xhael, [livejournal.com profile] macgirl_13, [livejournal.com profile] stryderranulf, [livejournal.com profile] sortinghatlover, [livejournal.com profile] magnetic_rose and other faces old and new to celebrate boy porn over chocolate cake. Was given the work I need to do from Ranulf's end, and basically chilled/fangirled/bibliophiled the whole day.

Late night conversations and Gudangs made me realize how much I've missed times like that. After a harrowing semester (and it'll only get more harrowing from this point), going back to the people who truly matter in life was refreshing. The book sales and discount card power help too. X3

...This summary would be better, 'cept my brain is shot from weird weather and too much smoking. At least it's windy. o_o



Petrik and family (including my adorable one-year-old (and them some) niece were over for the weekend. They're all ecstatic about the publishing gig. Father dear has offered to buy copies of the anthology when it comes out and give it to all our relatives and (nearly) all of my friends. It was generally all right until dinner time, when the topic of conversation somehow moved to homosexuality.

Traditional family + patriarchal house + know-it-all brother = Not Cool. Will Not Discuss.



Was supposed to meet with Mahar to satisfy his craving for wild, passionate boysex give him this disc of eclectic anime pieces that I owe him, but he never came around. Spent most of my day in the smoket, and some of it at Caf Up. [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream was freaking out over her Philo orals. [livejournal.com profile] miyachan and I were cramming fixing our stuff for Read or Die. We'll be handling Edith Tiempo during the talks at the Manila International Book Fair.

Home now, and a bit dizzy. I've got work I need to do for Comics Class, and I really ought to be working on my assignment(s) for Creative Writing. I should also be doing the shorts I plan to submit to Spec Fic and PSG. Then there's Madame Bovary to read and diagrams to encode.

*stares longingly at her Torchwood DVD*

It's been a harrowing first week, to say the least. The last two days I had before school were devoted to exercising VERY early in the morning, and Lord knows I haven't done something like that in a while. I'm still not used to waking up early, which was exactly what I've been forced to adjust to this whole week. Then there was Wednesday and the first wave of June's Ides of Stupid, with Moralizing Sophomores, thesis problems due to strange changes in policy that really shouldn't apply to me in the first place but Hell, don't ask ME what's up with that and classes disappearing left and right. Previous entries can attest to that.

Suffice to say, Friday and Saturday were great ways to close the week. I met up with [livejournal.com profile] sindapa, [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu and [livejournal.com profile] laurgasm at Shangri-La after battling through Manila + Makati traffic jams to get my paycheck at the STAR -- the three of us chilled out for a good few hours, and I think we all generally realized how much we missed just sitting around, doing absolutely nothing substantial. Got home late because the traffic was still bad, and ended up conking out without even poking anybody on y!m.

Woke up after several dreams involving me coming in terribly late for the first class for Development of Fiction, which was quite far from the reality. Sir DM is supposed to teach the class, but since he won't be back until August Miss Ivery de Pano will be taking over. [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream and I basked in the thrill of having a class full of graduate students, of people who actually took the class because they really wanted to and will apply this same seriousness and desire to learn to all the succeeding sessions.

...Right. Geek moment ends there. @_@

After doing some more Ateneoish things, [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream waited around for me at Crossroads 77 while I worked out, and then we headed over to Megamall to visit Yue-tan, [livejournal.com profile] khursten, [livejournal.com profile] sortinghatlover and all the lovely Pinkies they had on display for the Toycon. Event didn't seem to be very well-organized, and since neither of us had any money [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream and I just sat around at the Pinky booth, keeping our eye out for the few really nice cosplayers that made our afternoon. [livejournal.com profile] magnetic_rose arrived a bit later, although she wasn't feeling well. The Real Life Otaku that assaulted the booth later didn't help much either. T_T

The two of us headed off a few hours before the convention closed in order to eat dinner at Soup Kitchen, where I finally satisfied a craving I've carried for their stuff ever since I first ate there in my junior year. We swung by the cousin's place to pick up my brother, then I dropped [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream off at Ateneo. Fussed over a great many Litsoc matters and then a few illustration things for [livejournal.com profile] geist_net the moment I got home, cooled down by chatting with friends, and then slept sometime past midnight.

Parents are still in Cambodia with my brother Pio, leaving Paolo, Peter and I with the house until Monday evening -- as such, I'm tempted to skip out on Sunday mass altogether. I haven't been able to do nearly as much editing/writing as I want to, and I also need to finish my reading assignment for Philosophy. It's not too hot yet, but that's sure to change within the next few hours.



Not a bad schedule at all, if I do say so myself. It leaves time for studying, plotting crack writing, working out/swimming, singing lessons with my Dad and driving lessons on the automatic cars at home.

It was positively thrilling to see [livejournal.com profile] panda_patuti, [livejournal.com profile] udon_in_osaka, [livejournal.com profile] gitarangmakulay, Carlito, Drea and Yukeh again... we had fun talking crack, celebrating porn, reminiscing on old times and snarking at syntax and horrendous grammar. Got to meet [livejournal.com profile] osmalic about Lights Out trade matters (I loved the shirt! *_*), and had random run-ins with [livejournal.com profile] pyrosinferno and [livejournal.com profile] soggy_biscuit, with the latter suffering through the worst of registration woes with me. I also got to update myself on the happenings of the old block, which is always a good thing.

Parents are glad to see me excited for the new semester, and I'm glad to see me happy too. I've got a lot of things planned -- we'll just have to see how it all works out.

Really, though. I still think the Theology Department should go up in flames. o_o

EDIT: Okay. The English Department fails also.
So in spite of a very harrowing Friday morning, this weekend was among the best I've had this year. [livejournal.com profile] khursten, [livejournal.com profile] magnetic_rose, [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu and [livejournal.com profile] ryvaeus slept over, with [livejournal.com profile] sortinghatlover dropping in and staying until the whee hours of the morning before she had to head off to Puerto Galera. Khursten, Yukeh and Rael played cook while Rotch and I were happily useless, watching cousin dear and my three brothers still living in the house duke it out on the Wii. We had gyoza, ramen and pasta for a midnight snack, along with slices of this mango cake which is the size of a puppy.

Now I feel bad that I didn't take a picture. o_o

Anyway, some of us (myself included) conked out a bit early (between midnight and 2:00 AM) while others continued Wii-ing until sometime before sunrise. We all woke up again at around 9 or so, Wiied a bit more, and then had brunch from the leftovers of breakfast. Then while I had more quality time with the Wii (Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess pwns my soul!), the rest of us read Fables or bonded with the piano. [livejournal.com profile] archangel_dream arrived early, and Yukeh brought [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel over too from Manila. [livejournal.com profile] miyachan came in after a bit to watch Rotch click around on some Extremely NOT Worksafe and DEFINITELY Not for Guys flash games on the web (Strip Jack-en-pon! Flying Dildos! Interactive Sex Novels!). The other guests started trickling in sometime before seven.

I realize that while big parties have their own charm, it's the small parties that one really gets to enjoy. There's something wonderful in eating dinner at one table, surrounded by people who generally know each other and even if they didn't, can partake of the conversation, connect and have fun. I've a feeling I'm going to do things this way for a while yet... it's my first small birthday gathering in three years.

Most of the guests left maybe an hour after dinner, leaving me to just chill out and talk about games and anime and random things while the other half of the group Wiied. Went to sleep at around 1:00 after marathoning some anime and feeding Musebabies.

As you might've guessed, my birthday party was brought to you by Nintendo. XD
