(Not really a continuation of the last post. That will come soon. I think. Humour me.) Continue reading …Trying not to die.
And here we are, more or less two years after my last post.
Have you bought that string of wire you were thinking of using to strangle me? If procrastination were an actual job, I’d be filthy rich right now, along with more than half of the population. Continue reading
Huzzah, I am not yet dead!
I’m sooooo sorry this took so long. I’m slowly but surely
emphasis on the slowly trying to write all the things that have happened in the past year and a half, while keeping track of the current stuff. I have no excuse. It’s spring break over here (Hear! Hear! Filipino student on spring break? You probably already have an idea of what one of the future posts will be about.). And I’m working. Oops, so much for no excuses.
Either way, if you’re still sure you want to see what madness my classmates and I have been up to, read on below! Continue reading
So instead of posting the promised narrative on what my awesome forever classmates did from November of last year until the end of the last semester, I, yet again, post something else. Continue reading
(Taken from a blog entry I wrote for our class blog. The captions won’t save so I just put it in as regular text underneath the pictures, with some formatting.)
ファイナルファンタジーXはファイナルファンタジーの十番の一回分です。この話は二部分があります。まず、ファイナルファンタジーX。ティーダ （Tidus）はザナルカンドのBlitzballの一番一軍でした。Sinの討ってから、Tidus はスピラという世界に着きました。Tidus は スピラの最新Summonerユウナ（ Yuna） とYunaの友達と知り合いました。慌てて、喪家の狗で、同伴しました。 和のため、Yuna はSinを壊さなければなりません。共々、その企業に参加しました。旅しながら、あの二人の関係は発展しました。しかし、さまざまな多難があるので、よく準備しなければなりません。成り行きを発展した、あの二人は離れるけど、Yuna はスピラをもう指導しました。ここは第二話の始めでした。
ファイナルファンタジーX は Square Enix の生産でした。このゲームはCGIを使いました。日本で６月の２００１年に発売してから、ほめるのがたくさんあって、賞賛も受け取りました。筋立てはすばらしいと言っていました。RPGというゲームでした。ファイナルファンタジーシリスの中で、一番一回分は世界地図がないけど、ファンによると、「依然本当にファンタジーだよ」そうでした。スピラについて、ちょっと陰気だと思いますが。始めは、すべてはすてきで、いい所けど、本当は隠れる悲劇があります。そして、挿入歌もすてき。
Just a quick update so you won’t assume I’m dead.
Although there isn’t really much to say if I were, save that the world has one less sadist in it. LOL.
Just a few more weeks and classes will be ending. This merits two reactions from me and, most probably, the rest of my classmates: “Hurray!” and “Asdfjkl; NO! I’m not done with my paper yet dammit!”
Well, there you have it. A week or two after Holy Week, I’ll be catching up on all the stuff I’ve been promising to post — the adventurous fieldwork in the mountains of Sierra Madre, getting that scholarship, happiness with my awesome forever classmates, our misadventures in Pampanga, and our weekly indulgences. There’ll even be pictures too! And, gasp, dare I say it? Fanfic updates! I commend
and pity anyone and everyone who still sticks with me this far, with my erratic posting schedules. Or lack of it.
Anyway, it’s nearly five in the morning here, and I have to go get some shut eye before our last dance performance for this semester. I hope. LOL. I just passed by to tell you that:
- Final Fantasy is amazing;
- I’m turning into an obsessive fangirl
- It’s okay because it’ll be what I’m blogging about in our weekly class blog;
- I have a legitimate excuse to take
unwarranted breaks between the flood of paperwork we were left with; and
- I’m near to tears because I haven’t finished one-fifth of one of my major papers.
Oh, and I’m getting hooked
again to Suteki da Ne, one of the songs in Final Fantasy X, the one I wrote about today. If you haven’t listened to it yet, I’m recommending it to you. Don’t worry, it’s harmless…relatively 😄 Well, I did get depressed the first time I heard it and all…
So, life as usual, yeah?
Oh, I’ll be posting a copy of that sort-of-rushed article here too. But it’s all in Japanese, so don’t strangle me please.
Note to self: Finish all paperwork if I want to get anywhere or go anywhere for that matter. Procrastination. Why did I have to be a pro? LOL.
A smashed glass, a pile of wet academic readings, and a mutilated hand later, I type you yet another excuse for my lateness.
Come to think of it, my recent posts seem to have a lot of blood and/or violence in them. I wonder if I see a trend.
Ah well. So I’m posting late again. Because I am such a useless waste of space orz LOL, I kid. Self-pity only gets people so far, usually not farther than what they can throw.
Aaaaand I’m going to stop with the uncalled for, snarky, woe-is-me comments.
Life has been…how shall I put it? Well, let’s just say that instead of being one week of fast food, the past week for me has become one week (and counting) of brine stained cheeks and red, puffy eyes. And I don’t even have a current romantic relationship!
Even then, I have a feeling I won’t be the one doing the crying. I’m a shameless, heartless bastard after all.
Just a few hours ago, I came to a realization. I now understand why the people in asylums, or the ones that are emotionally and/or psychologically unstable, or the ones that have finally broken, are portrayed as laughing nearly, if not fully, hysterically while crying uncontrollably.
It’s because laughter is their only remaining reassurance that somehow, some way, they are still part of the waking world, and that other people know this. That they haven’t disappeared into the void of nothingness as they’ve feared. That they’re still alive and not just some phantom living in someone else’s version of life. That they still retain a part of themselves. That they’re still there.
I’ve also unfortunately had to experience an emotional breakdown in front of my maternal parent. After avoiding showing her such weakness for nearly nineteen years. And she brought it on in the first place.
I knew my skills had to have come from somewhere. I think my pride just jumped the window.
So, well, I guess life’s been pretty busy lately.
You don’t say? Pretty damn hard too. It’d put a rock to shame. It’s not something I want to let show in my writing but obviously does so I might hold off posting the next parts for a bit. After all, the first few parts of SASBRC is supposed to be light and happy, if a bit fluffy. I’m trying to write the middle parts though, the part after Hogwarts (yes, I’m ambitious enough to let it get that far xD). And, well, I figured since they would be in the middle of a war, I’d use these types of typically destructive emotions to make something, well…would fanfiction be considered productive? *sweatdrop*
I’m really sorry I keep making you wait. I’m a bad author D:
My best friend is ranting at me to sleep now. “Calm down and sleep,” he said. And I think I should. I still have to try typing up some stuff both for school and for fun tomorrow. And I totally forgot to study for my upcoming exam this week. I am so going to die @_@
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the people who helped me through tonight.
Thank you, Lee, for the virtual slap and taking me back to reality.
Thank you Victor, for trying to help me and ultimately making me laugh. You always, without fail, manage to do that when you catch me crying. I can’t quite believe you’re still the person who only comes to me when he needs me as his emotional crutch. I’m sorry for springing you with all that happened tonight. And for burdening you with some of the deeper causes of this.
And thank you Bryan, for sticking around even though I know that studying for your exams in engineering without taking anime breaks exhausted you. For locking yourself in your room with the tablet to talk to me despite it not being fully yours. And for shortening what was already a short sleeping schedule just to talk to me and tell me to sleep.
