A story to tell

I know, I know, it's been weeks and my absence here in the blogsphere was a clear violation of my new year's resolution (to blog at least once a week). Aside from school kasi, I've been very busy teaching dance. Btw, this ain't one of my usual posts na seryoso, matalinhaga and stuff.

If you're a medtech student, you can definitely relate. There's this annual event where MT students gather for uhh pageant, seminar, singing and talent competitions (like a HS intramurals).

What pressured me the most was the fact that me and my team were informed about the dance contest 5 days before the event! I was like WTF?? 4 DAYS TO REHEARSE? MOTHER OF GOD (very 9gag lang).

Fuck! Our Lady of Fatima University (I know a couple of dancers from there) FEU MORAYTA (okay, mamamatay na ko, magaling lang tao don) I visited kasi the website where the list of contestants were shown, siyempre I had to check out the competition. If I'm not mistaken there were at least 15 contenders pero yung fatima and feu ang naretain ng memory ko, prolly because they're the ones na alam kong magaling talaga.

Here are my girls:

day 1

day 4

day 5, pizza muna habang hinihintay magstart ang competition

and then, after 2 hours of waiting, nakasayaw na sila.. and ang result..


sorry pero proud na proud lang ako. I mean, 2nd place in 4 days?? grabe! Ang mas grabe pa eh na cut yung music namin, the incompetent sound guy thought that I was kidding when I said "hihinto talaga yung music niyan sa bandang dulo".

Kung babalikan yung day 1 ng practice, wala silang SWAGUUH walang confidence tapos on the competition day mapapanuod mo sila na hinihiyawan ng mga tao, character kung character sa stage GAWD!! Sinong hindi magiging proud diba?

Being a choreographer really isn't all about the money. Watching your kids perform on stage and realizing that somehow you've been a significant part of their growth is priceless.

Here's the video pala. Thanks for reading folks! :)

What if?

“’What’ and ‘if’ are two words as non-threatening as words can be, but put them together side by side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. -Letters to Juliet”

It was unreal, but it was happening

and he tried so hard to resist him and his charm

because he knew it was too good to be true

he was filled with longings

longings he buried in a deep abyss

longings he should have forgotten long ago


"I used to hate you so much" / I'm glad we're friends again

"I'm sorry"

"I really loved you" / seeing you now brings this familiar feeling


"Did you love me? Those sweet things you said, the appreciation, the love, the concern, were those real?"

He held a bottle of hot sauce

Oo, kasing init nito. Actually, dapat makikipagbreak na ako sa boyfriend ko, para sa'yo

"Ah, I see" / They why didn't you leave him? I ignored the f*cking pain! I became a sucker who waited six long months for you! Why didn't you leave him? WHY?!

"Tingin mo ba kung naging tayo noon, tayo parin hanggang ngayon?

"... I don't know" / YES! Sobrang mahal kita, it would have been a fairy tale, a dream come true!

"Just forget about it, ang importante ngayon friends na tayo"

"oo tama... magkaibigan" / kalimutan ang lahat... wish it was that easy

Liham ng isang pusong napopoot.

"Hindi ka para sa akin, ayoko na!"

Every minute I stare at you my heart breaks.
From start to finish thoughts of you bring torment,
wrecking my spirit,
turning my hope into specks.
You are far from comprehension,
far from reach.

As my feet remain planted on the ground
there you are up in the heavens
hovering over my head
mocking my wits
shaming my pride
I despise you

Have I not exerted effort?
were my attempts too feeble?
I gave you the best gold
you gave me filthy rags
I gave you time
you spare not one minute
I spit on you

I thought what we had was special
I thought you and I could get along splendidly
I was wrong
I was very wrong
Depart from me
Be gone elsewhere
I hate you

Hindi ka para sa akin, ayoko na!

Stupid polynomials! noong bata ako numbers lang ang minumultiply bakit ngayon pati letters?! While taking our quiz after the short discussion, I kinda peeked into my seatmate's paper and I'm like "hala, bakit ang haba ng sagot niya". As expected, mine was wrong. Damn it! just when I thought I completely understood everything. I hate you math.

Bring it on 2012!

2011 has been a painful year. Don't worry, I won't go through every sorrowful detail I mean, I don't want to bore you readers with all my sob stories. To keep it concise, 2011 for me, was a year of betrayal. I struggled with agony from January up to the very last days of December.

Still, I am thankful. I am thankful for the lessons the past year has taught me, thankful to the people who were always with me in those dire times.

2012 promises nothing but uncertainty. However, there is one thing I'm sure of... I am STRONGER NOW.

BTW I have 5 vows for 2012.

1. Update my blog regularly (at least once a week)
2. Read more books
3. Attend dance classes
4. Gain weight
