I read my friend Carissa's e-mail regarding the status of our yearbook. And I was so pissed off. Why? Because the editor in chief left for the States. Sure, it's ok for her to leave but why did she not endorse it to anyone else who cares?
I know that even she is waiting for that stupid yearbook. The alumni office told me to wait for it to come out sa 2010 but with the circumstances, mukhang 2109 pa ata makukuha. Good luck. Kalansay na ata ako nun. Bleh.
And as far as I'm concerned, even if I freakin' suck at some editorial aspects, I'm gonna sign up for that freakin' yearbook after my resignation has been taken into effect. And I'm gonna fill it up with photos of the Les Dames Compatissantes De Jesus (the batch that rocks) and the activities of the College of Nursing para naman minsan, bida kami. LOL. And I will also do that as a big fuck you to those who never or rarely considered the affairs and achievements of our College and the Accountancy program. Saan ka ba naman nakakita ng 100% passing ng Accountancy na nakasiksik sa isang sulok at napaka-unstrategic pa ng placement. Same as the treatment with our kickass board exam passing rate.
Bitterness? Not really. This is me on my impakta mode, speaking.
And I'm just hoping that whoever the EIC is, she left a draft of the yearbook. And if she didn't, kawawa naman siya dahil isusumpa siya (without fail) ng lahat ng Batch 2007 graduates ng St. Paul Manila.
Since I haven't blogged decently for quite a while, I've decided to rant on my so-called "retail therapy. When I was still earning top peso (lol), I have a hard time controlling the urge to buy whenever I see stuff I like...even if it's not on sale. Ganun. I stopped being kuripot for a while because I know the things I'm buying are what I really needed. Plus I became galante to my little brother, Christopher. I get excited when I buy my brother new clothes because I get to style him so he won't look generic and that I realize that he's growing up so fast. Likewise with Charmaine, but not as same as Christopher because she's in Manila. I treat her out to lunch, dinner or snacks or sometimes buy her shirts when I go there.
Now that my duty hours have been decreased, so did the income. I now have to revert to dead-on frugality. But what's annoying is that all the good stuff came out NOW and that I can't curb the urge to buy.
Like the last time I bought something from Body Shop three days ago. I was trying to practice self-control but I couldn't so I ended up buying. The deal was too good because the blush on was on sale at 50% off. Hehe. I was kinda whiny while I was thinking and I wanted to kick myself for being L-A-M-E. But luckily, shoes and bags aren't on sale. Plus I was annoyed by how expensive Gap is here in Manila so I lost interest in buying clothes.
So now I vow to save more moolah for the remaining days that I am employed. Because after my resignation, I'm back to being a bum again. An official parasite. Taghirap na ako. Bleh.
I always thought personal style competition whores are annoying but personality "doppelgangers" take the cake. It has been annoying enough that you're unconsciously included in a pseudo-fashion walk-off but I have to switch on to my heinous bitch mode when I saw my Facebook home page reeking with posts from this person I'd like to call, "Pluto". Those posts were rip-offs from my LOLSpeak and crazy antics. And I had to ROTFL when someone commented, "Omg, you're so funny talaga".
I am ticked off. Because I feel like I've been robbed of a part of me. But in a way, I have to control my bitchiness because I realized that I am helping the person overhaul his/her dwindling "interesting meter".
And not to mention, Facebook is starting to become the next Friendster.
