For those of you who didn't know, I just spent the last four days in Coron, Palawan.

Took lots of pics and wrote a lot, so I'll be splitting the entries up to save everyone's browsers. orz

May 29 to June 1. )

Part Two is over here!
So uuuuh summer class is over.

I think it made me a better teacher, but overall? I kind of don't want to do it again. ;;

I CAN ALSO OFFICIALLY DRIVE although I am yet to go on the road!


Picspam. [Answers a photo meme from WAY BACK and then some.] )

I'll upload the rest of the stuff on my phone tomorrow. owo

Now that we're nearing the halfway point of 2010, I have but one thing to say:

It's been interesting.

Leave a comment of what you'd like me to take a picture of on my computer, in my room, wherever. I can screenshot it or take a picture with a camera, it's all good! Have at me guys.

50202 / 50000 words. 100% done!

I actually gunned the remaining 8,000 words that I had in a single seating on Thursday, but I got lazy to post about it until now. XD

Fastest NaNo completion I've had yet, but this was, perhaps, my hardest year doing it. Will use the time I've got left to take a break and go back to absorbing new material in preparation for Christmas.

+ My Christmas Wishlist! ♥
+ Katekyo Hitman Reborn Fanmix. Dino Cavallone & Hibari Kyouya - From Year Zero to Ten.

Some people, [livejournal.com profile] _sabriel included, have been asking me about the books that I want, since I mentioned it as one of my items and I wasn't very specific. So here is a shortlist! )

Here's some real life updates.

I HAVE AN MA CLASS AGAIN. After all the heartache, the chair of my department stepped in when she found out that I'll be forced on a leave of absence due to the dissolving of all the classes that I could have enrolled in, so she has offered to hold a Development of Drama tutorial for me, one-on-one. What does this mean?

A.) We only meet a few times in the semester, and on our own terms.
B.) I do all the studying on my own, as I see fit.
D.) Since I have more free time, I'll likely be using it to relax, step up my game with my teaching, write more, and finally go to driving school. CAN HAS WHEELS SOON.

I'm hella lucky, because Doctor Lulu is one of the best professors we've got. Now I'll have the privilege of learning under her in a very intimate setting.

On other school-related things: am getting my pace with my En12 and Lit14 classes. Looks like it won't be nearly as bad as I thought it would be. ...Then again, it may be too early to tell at this point.

Also: the new Rizal Library is kind of. Um. Shiny.

There's nothing like having a great set of friends to show you that life isn't difficult at all; merely interesting. ♥
A-a lot of people have been asking me, so...


Step One
- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to reallybig ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") Theimportant thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves)could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
-Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My list, in no particular order. )

Some folks on my side of the internet have already posted their lists. If you have and I haven't commented, hit me up with the link.

Also: I still have a running post over here for people who haven't requested for fic!

30275 / 50000 words. 61% done!

Official report with excerpt is here. Click if you love Shamal and his DOM tendencies.

I had this long-ass, thought out entry on how this week has been, but since my internet connection died for most of the day, you're all going to have to settle for pseudo-bullet points and weird rambling! \o/

MONDAY: NEW SCHEDULE SORTA on the driver's (my little brother) end, since he's got earlier classes. Cue me bouncing around like a madwoman, bugging [livejournal.com profile] khursten and other unfortunates until it was time to go back to my classes. Received the equivalent of a standing ovation from one class and hurrahs all around from the other two. Suchacute, freshmen. X3

Flailing over Poetry and English 12. That is all.

TUESDAY: I think this is where I started romping about, catching up on RP things and generating tags for me to occupy myself. I don't actually remember anymore. o_o

WEDNESDAY: TRUFAX LONGEST DAY saldkgh;kshdgh had a lunch meeting, did school things, did classes, flailed a lot, dragged feet over to an interesting faculty meeting, then zipped off to a reunion with my high school classmates.

A reunion's a reunion. Nuff said.

THURSDAY: ...More tagging. Also getting pissed off because the graduate studies class I fought for dissolved and everyone thought that it'd be a Smrt Idea to tell no one until the day itself. Am yet to find out if I'll end up having a class at all this semester.

If I don't, though, then I'll take it as a sign and maximize my break.

FRIDAY: FREEDOM. And tagging. Yes, there is a pattern. OH AND I HAVE A NEW KITTEN WHO IS WHITE AND STUPID AND SPUNKY and I have named him Gintoki.

Truly, I am Takasugi now. :D

SATURDAY: WE PLANNED ON WATCHING ASTRO BOY ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT IT'S NO LONGER SHOWING IN GLORIETTA OR GREENBELT. So me, [livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel and [livejournal.com profile] khursten ended up dragging [livejournal.com profile] yukitsu around lady stores because she made the mistake of mentioning that she needed a dress.

We have pictures. 8)


SUNDAY: Yeah, that'd be today. Posting much later than originally planned because wtaf, my connection went down for all of Saturday evening and most of today! I popped in briefly at Kourtyard to fap at do some logs with the usual suspects and make sure my karma doesn't hit rock bottom poke around with more of the same!

Been loading up on Poetry in my spare time, but I'm honestly, honestly lazy. Here's hoping I'll truly be in teacher mode soon. orz

EDIT: And before I could post this, the net died again. FML.

IN B4 I CHECK EVERYTHING because if I checked everything first I'll likely crash before doing this properly, which'll mean waking up and checking everything first and delaying this entry further. o_o


A-anyway uh so like I mentioned a few entries back and then some, I flew off to Singapore on the 27th with Khursten ([livejournal.com profile] khursten), Yukeh ([livejournal.com profile] yukitsu) and Lyn ([livejournal.com profile] kye_kestrel). This was our first trip out as a group (and Yukeh's first trip abroad ever), and it was the most glorious adventure we've had together yet.

SORT OF DISCLAIMER: I'm extremely lazy unorganized, and I'm not too fond of doing a blow-by-blow account of things, so this entry will likely be the "abridged" version of our whole trip with lots of personal teal deer on my end. Shove off to the entries my buddies will make if you want something to, er, supplement this. XD

They will also have pictures, which means that their entries will totally top mine by default.


So now I'm back in my house, showered, properly fed, practically dead on my feet but feeling the best I've had in a while. I've missed home and I've missed my family, although I don't particularly miss my country with Singapore still on the brain.

I'll be frank and say that Singapore, while lovely, was probably a place that I'd like to visit again, but not live in ever. It's... got this weird feel to it. This neither-here-nor-there, lack of "cultural" ground ambiance that sort of gets to you if you're sensitive to that sort of things. I mean, it's safe and secure and really fucking pretty, but it somehow feels empty for me.

Of course, that's all an observation on my part. Whether it's fair or not, I don't know.

Nevertheless, I made some good memories in Singapore, and it will always go down in my personal history as the first place I traveled to in the company of friends. I am also likely going to go back there very often in the future if the economy is kind to me, because I've got some real friends there that I definitely wouldn't mind seeing time and time again, from here until whenever.

/takes a deep breath

SO NOW THAT THAT IS DONE it's likely back to the regular routine. Still got a few days of sem break left to enjoy, although faculty duties are bound to kick in for me, especially with the new subjects I'll be teaching. There is also NaNoWriMo to consider, and that open RP post that I'm supposed to do for everybody.

May also need some time to figure out how to get rid of the Singlish twang. I-it's even corrupted the narrative voice in my head, as I rather rudely discovered when I attempted to read some of my books during the trip.

And I still want chicken rice. Like, lots of it.

Sooooo, flist, what did I miss? :D
