I know I said I don’t judge people on looks mainly because I care more about brains rather than beauty (and that includes how I think of myself) but, from time to time, allow me to gloat. In the middle of a Facebook chat, my guy friend suddenly sprung this:

nakakawindang profile pic mo

We were talking about Game of Thrones’ Cersei and how I just realized she was also the queen in 300. He said she was also in the Sarah Connor chronicles, so I googled that and saw Summer Glau and that’s when he suddenly said that so I asked WHY and then proceeded to blabber about how Summer Glau was also in Dollhouse without waiting for his reply. Which was this:

geek goddess siya
nakakawindang dahil ang ganda mo

THE HELL  <<my reply O.o

tangappin na ang compliment, pwede?

and then while I was typing “er thanks” he added:

sexy pa

So my reply was a big NGE. And then I proceeded to talk about Summer Glau.

We are such a funny pair. :))

Hmm. Well, okay, the purpose of writing this isn’t really to gloat but to preserve the memory of how, in the midst of all my worries, you’re keeping me sane–even though we both don’t know how to comfort people. So allow me to sift through our chat and copy-paste this bit:

you just don’t make friends with people you don’t genuinely like. and i’m flattered to be included in that exclusive circle. that’s what’s going to make me cry.

wanna have a synchronized crying session over two different timezones?

I am really honored. Thanks, B. There–you can cry now, I won’t tell. I’ll just say “there, there.” HAHAHA

‘Won consolation prize at the Ekitoryal. If I remember right, I placed 8th out of the 85 contestants (ranked 5th on the consolation prize, plus the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes). Not bad, I suppose. But I was hoping I’d at least get the third prize. 10k din yun. Haha. May pambili na ng bagong phone. :P

Not that I need a new one, and not that I can’t ask my Dad for it. But since I’m asking for a DSLR, I suppose the phone will have to wait. Tsk. Pwede kong ipilit pero wag na. I’d just rank up the value (sentimental value, that is), and then if it gets stolen again I’d be more depressed.

On a side note, I just love Rosas ng Digma on violin. Hee.

Tough Choice

September 16, 2010

Last Thursday, I watched the UP Pep Squad’s practice with some other friends.

It was a good decision, too, since as it turned out I missed the CDC last Sunday because I went with my family to Baguio and I wasn’t able to be back in time for the CDC. Hence the unused upper box A ticket. The ticket I waited in line for more than three hours, and missed my major class for. Sigh. But I’m over it. I just resolved that I will only miss the CDC if I’m dead by that time. [read on]

Of Looks and Other Demons*

September 10, 2010

Recently my classmates and friends have been complimenting me with “sexy” and “cute.” Haha. I took it all on stride, smiling timidly, laughing, or shrugging it off, depending on who was giving me the compliment. I don’t really think much about looks. I just want to look okay enough to face everyone and not be ashamed of how I look. I don’t compliment people on looks, either. I’d rather compliment someone on his/her intellect, creativity, or artistic ability than compliment his/her looks. I’m trying to change this, though, so I’m trying to compliment people on their looks as well, because I know that giving such notice cheers people up.
Still, I don’t delve too much about my looks. But one compliment kind of pleased me. [read on]
