Dahil kay Cosme...

1. Dahil kay Cosme, wala kaming kuryente sa aming munting apartment which means NO internet, less blogging activities or, in short, inactive cyberlife (or whatever you call it). I'm typing this whole crap in an internet shop. 88.20P na ang current balance ko as of this time. Ugh.

2. Dahil kay Cosme, hindi ko naannounce ang aking birthday nung May 24. Hindi ko kayo nasabihan na batiin nio ako :( Hindi ko din nabasa ang mga birthday greetings ko sa Friendster and Multiply. Thank you pala sa mga bumati :)

At hindi ko rin nabati si Ate Chesca 2 days after. May 26 kasi yung birthday nia. Belated Happy Birthday, Ate Chesca!

3. Dahil kay Cosme, hindi ko naibalita sainyo na tapos ko na ang Twilight and New Moon. Grabe, ang sarap pala talaga ng feeling nang may natatapos kang something noh? Fulfilling ang feeling. As usual and as always, out-of-stock na naman ang Eclipse dito sa National Book Store, Dagupan kaya nabitin ang pagbabasa ko. INUTIL. Grrr. How I wish na sana may Powerbooks din dito. Anyway, dahil dun, I settled reading Tuesdays with Morrie instead. I haven't finished it yet kaya next time nalang ang aking reactions and whatnots :)

Btw, speaking of books, here's the list of the other books that I would like to read next: (At kelan pa ako naging bookworm?!)

Note: Of course, I know that I may not be able to read all of these in a nick of time considering my anticipated-almost-impossible 3rd year life schedule as a nursing student PERO I'll try to prove myself that I can have a life outside the hospital and school. Sabi nga nila, "All work and no play makes a boy dull". Ganun ba yun? Ah basta something like that! Hehe.

Pagbigyan nio na ako, frustrated reader eh, diba?

*The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
*To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
*Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
*Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen (I already have this one)
*Secret by Rhonda Byrne
*The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
*My Young Blood book compilation :) (I have this one na din)

Any worth reading books na gusto niong isuggest? Share it naman oh :)

Help me live life to the fullest! LOL :>

4. Dahil kay Cosme, may chance pang maging mas lalong productive ang summer vacation ko. Aba, mahaba-haba din pala ang bakasyon ko kung tutuusin ah. Ang bait naman talaga ni Lord noh?

5. Dahil kay Cosme, sa June 10 (yehey!) or June 16 (wow!) or June 23 (whaaaaa!!!) pa ang pasok namin. That seems to be a good news, I guess. Good news for me in a sense na matatapos ko pa ang Eclipse before pasukan and marami pang time para magreflect sa buhay (naks) at maghanda para sa pasukan: physically, emotionally and spiritually.

6. Dahil sayo Cosme, hindi na ako natigil sa kakaisip kay Edward. Sa gabi, dahil walang kuryente at walang magawa, iniisip ko siya... :(

7. Dahil kay Cosme, madaming mga poste ng kuryente at mga puno natumba, maraming mga tao ang nawalan ng tirahan dahil nasira ang kanilang mga bahay at natanggal ang kanilang mga bubong.

Cosme, oh, Cosme! Anong ba tong ginawa mo?

Yun lang. Hehe. 105.42P na ang balance ko as of 8:43 p.m. Haha. Bye for now guys :) I'll be back soon! Please pray na magkakuryente na kami at matagal pa sana ang pasukan. Heehee.

P.S. Babalik na si Cindy :)

PPS. To end this, let me share to you something I treasure deep in my family. Here's our family picture :)

My family. It's where my heart belongs. LOL.

Astig. Hehe.

Twilight Madness

About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him-and I didn't know how dominant that part might be-that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

O.M.G. Hyperventilation to the extremes!

I saw this Twilight teaser from Gyk's blog and I just want to repost it here to help spread the good news to everyone. Good in the "good news" doesn't even fit, though, but even so, you're gonna love me for this. I swear. LOL.

So, without further adieu, here's the video that will surely make your dreams come true, in the literal sense of the word.

Here it is. Indulge :))

Twilight in HD

Coming out this 12.12.08

Have yourself an early-merry-little Christmas!

Sigh. Don't you just wish that you possess this supernatural power of making the time pass by fast, I mean fast-forwarding the time so it'll be December 12 already? Haha. I hope I do :(

Anyway, everybody seems sooooo excited about the movie and I can see no reason why they wouldn't! Edward Cullen is just too good to be true, or as Bella describes, "too perfect to be real", even in the movie, I hope. Honestly, I'm not that certain if Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter) can justify the character well. My imagination and perception of Edward's "perfection" in the book doesn't seem to satisfy me in the person of Robert P. but, maybe, I'll just have to make my judgment until the movie comes out in the big screen. Whoohoo. Big event.

Actually, I just started reading the book, I'm on Chapter 14 already. Or rather, nasa Chapter 14 pa lang ako. Haha. Okay, fine. I must admit, my reading ability is not that quite good. Or read: I'm not quite a fast reader. Or easily put as: my reading ability suck bigtime. Haha. Whatever.

Edit: I've finished reading the book already!!! This calls for a major celebration! I'm already starting with the 2nd book :)

Yeah, I know, I'm not like Tric (I love you, mare) and the others who can be considered as "voracious" who have the ability to read a book like this in two days or less. Me, on the other hand, can be considered more of a "frustrated" reader for that matter. Why-oh-why have I missed having that skill of reading fast? Sigh. Maybe I just never like reading that much, since now. Before, I see it more of a task than a hobby that's why I'm not really into reading, if you know what I mean. LOL. Scholastic readings, yes, of course, I had enough of that. Or rather, I'm already fed up with that. Haha.

When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.

The moment I read this certain line from the preface of the book, I already had this strong feeling that this book's going to be freakin' good. And truly it was, better than I expected, actually.

I bought the book at Powerbooks, SM Megamall last Friday when I went to Pasig (FYI: I used to live there for many years) to attend Emil's Christening. And also, my Auntie Emily and Ate Myleene, my cousin, with her family arrived here in the Philippines so everyone in the family was there, almost complete. I wasn't really surprised that we're all present because it's sort of a must to show up there when they arrive. LOL.

Good thing, this book isn't yet sold out in bookstores in Manila so I wouldn't end up disappointed as what happened when I searched for this book in NBS, Dagupan. The books here were more limited, I guess.

I wish I could finish this book soon (or sooner) so I could start (or rush) on the second book, New Moon, before the school is about to begin. Go go go Apple!!!

I love you Edward Cullen.

You are the love of my life.

You dazzle me every time. It never fails.


P.S. Birthday ko na sa May 24! Please don't forget leave your birthday greetings here :D Heehee.

This Broke My Heart :'(

Please watch it too :) You'll never regret it. I don't know about you but honestly, I broke out after watching this so now I'm sharing this to all of you to find out why.

Warning: This is a major tearjerker. Make sure you have a tissue beside you :)

Enjoy and be inspired =)

If You Want Me To by Ginny Owens

The pathway is broken
And the signs are unclear
And I dont know the reason why you brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I will go through the valley
If You want me to

Now I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise
You're not through with me yet

So if all of these trials bring me closer to You
I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my own
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'll never go alone

So when the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

Ahhhh. This is LIFE!

I am on Hiatus NO MORE.

GG is back. Georgina is back.


This is really is it! Now I can officially greet myself a merry, happy last! My week-long sleepless nights reviewing for my Micropara and NCM 100 is finally over. Well at least for now. LOL. I've been longing for this y'know, I mean a real-slash-true-to-life vacation coz if you still don't know yet, I'm in school like 75% of the time. Or make that 80 %. Haha. Yeah, seriously. For the past two years of my academic life here in college, (yay. I'll be in my junior year this sem btw) I haven't recalled any worth-remembering moments of my summer vacation. Last summer, as far as my poor, crappy memory is concerned, I was also in school having my summer classes. We weren't really required to take summer till our 2nd year summer but I enrolled because I thought it would be a good idea to make use of my summer vacation wisely by advancing some minor subjects and yes, it really was a great help to lessen up my loads for the next semester. Besides, being stuck at home is much worst than I could imagine summer classes would be. Since I have anticipated being at home to be as twice as boring, I took up summer classes. Apparently, as you can see, my whole freshmen year was spent (or can you call that devoted?) in school. Oh yes, I love school! I love being in school. Or not? LOL.

So why am I ranting about all this nonsense? What's the point? Hahaha. Yeah, I know. Don't mention it. I'm pointless. I'm nonsense. But maybe I am just the owner of this almost-forsaken-ancient blog and I have all the right to be pointless and nonsense. Haha. Just kidding. Well seriously, maybe I'm just happy that I have survived another semester. Maybe I'm just happy to have a break, not being in school OR not having any meetings or commitments with my orgs even for a while. Maybe I'm just happy not being worried about anything and be carefree.

The bottom line of this post: I am really back.

This is my now

There was a time I packed my dreams away.
Living in a shell, hiding from myself.

There was a time when I was so afraid.
I thought I'd reached the end,
But baby that was then
I am made of more than my yesterdays.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around
I can't believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

I have to decide,
Was I gonna to play it safe?
Or look somewhere deep in side,
Try to turn the tide,
And find the strength to take that step of faith.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around
I can't believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

And I have the courage like never before, yeah.
I've settled for less now I'm ready for more,
Ready for more.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around I can't believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.

I'm living in the moment
I look around I can't believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubt
That was then, this is my now.
This is my now.
