the girl and her cat

in my whole stay here at home, i have developed this attachment with our cat, evil kitty.

evil kitty likes to follow people around. sometimes she would stay with my brother and there are times that she goes upstairs to stay with me. she cannot go on and follow my mother because mom gets mad if evil kitty sleeps on whatever she's working on. if not following people, this fat cat would just lie down and sleep.

i have been taking a lot of photos of evil. the picture that i have uploaded is one of my most favorite. it was taken while evil kitty was lounging beside the image of sto. niño.

l'amour evil kitty.

shoe fetish...the resurrection!

since i am so bored, i decided to take a break from reading my crappy chn book and logged on to the web. and i found these:

photos from keds.com

unfortunately, these aren't out yet in the philippines. and i don't know whether it would be.

i am a "sneaker pimp" and a "tsinelas freak" (as a friend puts it) on hiatus. but lately, i have been becoming it again because i just realized that a very interesting pair can bring a touch of oomph to a very boring outfit. that is, if i don't want to use other kinds of accessories. plus, since keds are not so popular here, there are less chances that i'll be bumping into someone else wearing the same thing. yey!

wild prints and patterns on sneaks and sandals always catch my attention. so un-generic! i love it. :)

toxic...nyeta!

oh well. so the date of the 2007 licensure exam for nurses draws near..and i am nowhere near ready. i have been stuck at home for a few weeks now and i am not going far reading my frickin' DOH book. i have to absorb all of that because during my four years of studying, i rarely laid my hands on that oh-so boring book. and now, it's kicking me in the ass. really hard.

another thing that has been adding up to my agitation is the in-house review that our school will have. it's supposed to start on may 15. a lot of my batchmates were alarmed to hear that we will be stagnant for a month so they decided to enroll in some review centers which they find good. so because of that they opted to stay out of the in-house review. unfortunately for some of us, the in-house review might be cancelled or fees might increase because of that.

so there. that is my dilemma. to review in or to review out. crap, if i had known that it would end up like that, i should've signed up for review classes in PRS...the only review center that i trust as of this moment. the last batch has already started and i am so pissed of by the recent turnout of events.

in my point of view its becoming an every man for himself situation. so now, i don't give a flying fuck on where everybody's going. if you're fighting for your survival, boy i will also fight hard for my own survival even if it means that i have to seclude myself away from the land of everybody else.

there. letting it all out feels so much better.

grar!

seriously, i am sooooo not in the mood for socializing with people i barely even know who expect that something really "romantic" can happen. eew. that is so totally uncalled for! aside from that, is it even right to make plans without asking me? ooh, really annoying.

i am in a way so pissed off because my mom's in it too. she was supposed to be my mother! she didn't even ask me about that. duh! this is so 18th century philippines. and for that, i'd rather lock myself up and drown in the sea of nursing board reviewers lying around my room.

and because of this i am in my evil mode again. cold treatment rules!

ang kwento ni mang abe

ANG KWENTO NI MANG ABE

...my awakening into the rude world...

Recently, I chanced upon my older sister’s mementos and memorabilia from the past. I laughed my ass of when I saw the flyer for the children’s theatrical play, “Ang Kwento Ni Mang Abe”. See the illustration above...cool! Seeing that brought back so many memories and many other things such as dust bunnies and old notes from way back.

I just wondered why have they stopped producing or funding these kinds of shows? I know that they know that a lot would benefit from these kinds of projects. Great. Just great! Where were these shows when the world needs good manners?

Looking back shows like Batibot and Sesame Street has been my own virtual textbook. I learned my ABC’s and my 123’s in these shows. Not only that, I learned other day to day skills such as tying my shoelaces (c/o Robert Jaworski) and cleaning up after my mess (c/o Kuya Bodjie). I strengthened some of my values like saying po and opo to elders. Who can forget the magic words: sorry, thank you, and please?

But now, children has become a little bit of annoying. They don’t even know how to say sorry. Just a little while ago this morning when I attended the Palm Sunday Mass, a kid aged about 6 y/o wearing those annoying skate shoes stepped on my toe. I yelped in pain but the child didn’t even bother to say sorry. If that person wasn’t a kid, I’d probably turn into a Ms. Hyde. I’d intentionally step (or probably trample) on her foot while saying, “Sorry, jackass!”

I’m not saying that I’m the epitome of a perfect, polite child. All I am saying is that we should still remember these things because it’d make us better. Although it might sound so passé, it really does. Usually, polite people are more preferred than those who are not.

And as for me, nowadays I’m being polite when the situation calls for it…in situations like when the person in front of me is a polite one.
