Fort Santiago: a Philippine relic.

In my previous blog, I talked about The Oscars and some of my favorite vintage movies and you can take a look at that in here. For this blog, I'm gonna talk about something educational, I'm gonna take you to a fragment from the Philippine History, back in a time when the Philippines was under the tyrannical rule of the Spaniards for 333 years, since they landed in the Philippine shores in 1521 (thanks, Leah); back in a time when the Japanese bombarded Manila during the World War II and with it the once magnificent Fort Santiago, Rajah Sulayman's Fort during the Pre-Spanish times, fortified by the Spaniards when they conquered the Philippines, was also bombed and mercilessly destroyed.

Recently, I went to Fort Santiago for my school project; this is the first time in a long time I visited one of the country's historical tourist spots. Here are some pretty amateur photos only taken by a PSP cam as I have no professional camera but planning to buy one in the future lol.
Took this photo while inside a Taxi. You can see a Jeepney, a kind of public transportation (which originated from leftovers of US Military Jeeps in World War II) and Jollibee on the right side (a fast food chain which also originated from the Philippines and is currently expanding in the US).
Taken from a moving Taxi. This is the infamous Jose Rizal (our national hero) Monument, in where he was shot by the Spaniards for fighting for his country.
Manila Metropolitan Church. Again taken from a moving Taxi LOL.
This is a kalesa, a carriage, used in the old times, most especially by the rich Filipino Families and the Spaniards.
This is the moat surrounding the fort. Note the buildings at the far back. Irony LOL.
This is a painting by someone whose name I forgot lol. This is Jose Rizal, our national hero, getting shot by Filipino soldiers and in the back of these Filipino Soldiers were Spanish soldiers ready to shoot them if they hesitate to shoot the hero.
Sorry for the quality. People are not allowed to enter this door. This was the room Jose Rizal stayed, awaiting his death.Too much greenery lol. Just outside the Jose Rizal Shrine.
Stone Walls (note the Romanesque Architecture) and a pathway leading somewhere lol. Photo was taken behind bars as this place seemed restricted.On this site lies the mortal remains of approximately 600 Filipino and American Soldiers who were victims of the Japanese invasion of the fort.Looking up, I saw the sun shining amidst the tree branches.
Steps leading down to the dungeon. This was actually a vault for storing weapons and ammunition then later converted to a prison cell. I can't bear to go further as it felt really creepy and cold LOL.
The infamous Ilog Pasig or the Pasig River, the longest river in the Philippines, connecting several places. There was a time when people bathe, wash their clothes and drink water from the river but now it's impossible as the water is now murky, muddy and grimy LOL. There are now cleaning campaigns, though.
Is it just me or the subject is really beautiful LOL.The park that will welcome you once you go inside Fort Santiago. I think these were used by the Filipino and American soldiers or maybe the Japanese LOL. A close-up of the kalesa. After I took this photo, the guy behind the reins
wanted to do a re-take with him smiling LOL.

Phew, done! LOL. As I made my way home, I imagined how the Filipinos lived during the old times, just being bullied and discriminated by the Spaniards and how we are ultimately looked down as people who are illiterate and stupid and useless. Then came the Japanese who treated Filipinos, especially women, like pigs. Filipinos are always the underdogs, always falling servants and slaves to any race in the world. We are literally free as a state but are slaves to foreign products and practices. Most Filipinos actually adopt the style of the foreigners and forgetting their roots.

Much Love and I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did working on it. Do give feedbacks! :)

The Oscars and some Vintage Movies.

Damn the word verification thing. I removed that feature as there are no spammers anyway... so far. So sorry for the inconvenience but I encountered the problem in other blogs too. So the problem must be Blogger. So that's why I didn't receive comments yesterday!

I just had a really bad case of LBM this morning that's why I excused myself from my only class today... just saying.

Okay so, I'm mighty glad that the President declared a National Holiday yesterday so I was able to watch the 81st Academy Awards which aired at 7AM in here. I woke up at 6.30AM, just for this thing. Hey, I'm a lover of films so I can't miss this for the world! Anyway, here are my rants and raves:

  • Seriously. What is up with Miley Cyrus? Her dress looks fabulous from the belt up but the other half is simply ridiculous. I LOLed at some comments from Yahoo, here are some of them just for fun:
"Has she been to the UK to see the queen? If so, she looks as if she's wearing the curtains from the queen's kitchen." - Cougar K
"yes, i hate her, now she looks like a human christmas tree in the beginning of March!!" - Loretta
"Miley! Stop! Don't let them take over your young and impressionable mind! You can do it... you can dress yourself. Next time, remember you are 16 , not 50!" - Rmk

She's probably one of the worst dressed I've seen in the event. Runner-ups include Mickey Rourke (could have been better!) and Philip Seymour Hoffman's cap.
  • Best dressed: Angelina Jolie who looked extravagant in her rather simple but elegant gown, Penelope Cruz who looked absolutely stunning, Taraji P. Henson who looked very classy with her sassy hairdo and elegant white gown and Hugh Jackman who absolutely looked dashing!
  • Hugh Jackman was a very good host, he kept me entertained with his little intermission numbers.
  • Slumdog Millionaire bagged 8 Oscars (including Best Motion Picture) and everyone involved in the film deserve this success. Hoping to see more of Freida Pinto!
  • I'm glad Penelope Cruz took home an Oscar. When she got on stage and delivered her speech, I can't help but melt because of her to-die-for Spanish accent. Definitely the Spanish Enchantress!
  • Yay, Kate Winslet finally took home an Oscar. Damn it, give her ten more!
  • The short film starring James Franco and Seth Rogen was funny. They laughed whenever there's drama on-screen, especially scenes from Doubt, hahaha!
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button received 13 nominations and bagged 3 Oscars. I'm glad Brad Pitt didn't win Best Actor.
  • I was touched with Queen Latifah's performance.
  • Tina Fey was hilarious and awesome, paired with Steve Martin.
  • Jack Black, Robert Pattinson and Adrien Brody didn't bother to shave or fix their hair.
  • I think Sarah Jessica Parker's dress is ridiculous.
  • Heath Ledger deserves the Posthumous Oscar Award.
That's pretty much it. And Beyonce's gold and black gown is really beautiful but sort of exaggerating.

And oh, since we're talking about films, let me just post my favorite classic movies.
Breakfast At Tiffany's. Starring highly-acclaimed Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard.
  • I will never forget when Audrey Hepburn, looking out at the road, sings Moon River while George Peppard looks on.
  • I have never read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's but I'm planning to.
  • The lead actress was originally Marilyn Monroe but her agent said that it's not good for her image to portray Holly Golightly (she smokes, drinks, etc.) so the role went to Audrey Hepburn instead and I'm glad it did.
To Kill A Mockingbird. Starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, Mary Badham as Jean Louise "Scout" Finch and Phillip Alford as Jem. (I forgot his real name lol but it was something like Jeremy Finch?)
  • I have read the book but enjoyed the movie more.
  • It's a shame that the two kids who played Scout and Jem were not very successful in their career. I've read somewhere that Mary Badham continues to visit schools to promote the film and relive it while Phillip Alford is involved in a construction work thing.
  • As far as I know, this is the only book that Harper Lee was able to publish. She was really good friends with Truman Capote, writer of the mentioned Breakfast At Tiffany's. (Got that info from the Capote film, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. It's a film about In Cold Blood and his struggles.)
Gone With The Wind. Starring Vivien Leigh as Katie Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. Based on Margaret Mitchell's Gone With The Wind.
  • Wow. This has got to be the best movie I've seen all my life. I have read the book and I was caught up in the mania leading me to this film. Margaret Mitchell captured every single detail of the South's triumphs and defeats, a war novel that is never boring.
  • I know all of the characters (perhaps close to a hundred) by heart as they are all memorable.
  • I could go on and on about Gone With The Wind.
  • Vivien Leigh was perfect as Scarlett O'Hara. Perhaps because she is a lover of the acclaimed war novel. She embodied Scarlett's braveness and selfishness, among other qualities.
  • Favorite Line: "As God Is My Witness, I'll never be hungry again!" - Scarlett O'Hara
  • I love the book as it is. I refuse to read Rhett Butler's People and Scarlett as they were not written by Margaret Mitchell. She's the only one who knows how to manipulate the characters as it's her own.

What about you, what do you think about the Oscars, any rants and raves? Worst and best dressed? People who should not be there? Feel free to share your favorite vintage movies!

Much Love,

Academy Awards, AI Season 8 and...Boob slip?

My, how those days pass by! Time for me to blog again, then! For this blog, I'm going back to my usual ramblings about things that caught my interest since my previous blog. So here's the menu for today:
Movies: Academy Awards
Music: Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls: Wardrobe malfunction?
TV Show: American Idol Season 8

Academy Awards. Now this has got to be the most prestigious awards show in the Film Industry. For every category, there are 5 nominees and they are chosen from perhaps hundreds of good films out there. Just being nominated for a category also feels like winning an Oscar but perhaps not as great as winning one, (or more!) though!

Anyway, out of all the nominees, I just watched perhaps just a handful of films and I know, I know, it's a shame to miss the other ones! I've watched:
  • The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button (I seriously don't find Brad Pitt THAT good as everyone claims he is. The one that stood out for me was Taraji P. Henson.)
  • Slumdog Millionaire (Very unforgettable film, everything was superb about it and I would love to visit India someday!)
  • Tropic Thunder (Very funny but has flaws. Funniest comedy I've seen in a while.)
  • Vicky Cristina Barcelona (Twisted but really great with Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johannson around!)
  • Wall-E
  • The Duchess (Might seem very boring for most of the people but having Keira around is enough to make me love this! She portrays characters very well especially on Atonement and Pride And Prejudice IMO.)
  • HellBoy II: The Golden Army
  • Wanted (The movie that fueled my interest in Films again after such a long time!)
  • Iron Man
  • Kung Fu Panda
Would love to see the rest of the nominees, especially The Reader (for Kate Winslet and the overall plot!), The Wrestler (for Mickey Rourke) and Doubt (for Meryl Streep and Amy Adams). Out of all the films I watched, I really hope Slumdog Millionaire gets the most awards and I'm sure it will..

Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls: Wardrobe Malfunction while performing at Amsterdam. I'm sure a lot of people already knew about the alleged wardrobe malfunction. Let me disappoint the whole lot of you who are into these 'things'. IT IS FAKE. That's right, in gleaming red and bold letters. And the video doesn't even reveal anything as the glare from the lights were too strong AND people on the front row claimed they did not see anything. Now let me end this issue with this link:

Yep, she always got them bras on. End of discussion, moving on!

American Idol Season 8. I'm not actually a follower of American Idol. I've watched some episodes here and there in the past. but right now, I got hooked into it! This season boasts amazing and real talent unlike other episodes who only have few potential stars. And I have to admit I wasn't even impressed with last season's winner. The guy on the right is Adam Lambert, my bet, my American Idol! He's just so good and he can make me cry because I'm easily overwhelmed lol.

Would also love to see more of Tatiana Del Toro but it's kind of a shame she didn't make the cut! I also like the gay dude Nathaniel Marshall; I like his personality and the way he belts out high notes. Also the blind and very inspiring dude, Scott McIntyre. It's amazing how he goes on like normal people who can see.

Life and random bits.
  • Yesterday, I had a talk with the Dean of the Psychology Department. I originally planned to take AB Psychology but then after having that talk with the Dean, he sort of encouraged me to take BS Psychology instead as it has a wider scope and is Pre-Med (AB is Pre-Law, can't imagine myself taking law as I don't like Politics). He also said a whole barrage of things and approved my application for shifting from Computer Science to either AB or BS Psychology! So next term, which is around May, I'll be leaving my friends in my current school and moving on to a new environment and new stuff to study. I'll be blogging more on shifting probably in my next blog and the ups and downs.
  • I am sick as I type this so forgive me if my humor is kind of dry lol. I still have classes tomorrow morning and I have to attend it as one more absent and I'll be dropped by the Professor LOL. I kinda love slacking.
  • Shoutout to all of my 1up friends!
  • I bought a new book, Song Yet Sung by James McBride.
  • Jennifer Hudson is currently belting out high notes in Dreamgirls on our HBO lol!
  • Happy Birthday, Dad - even though you have no idea about this personal space of mine. Will probably reveal it to you in the next couple of years LOL.
Much Love,

The curious case of why you and me are still single.

Sorry about the title, I'm just not very creative! Maybe you guys have noticed that I changed the title of my blog to "Stupid people shouldn't breed." (some people don't have to be reminded as..) to "If the past is the problem, our future could solve them." (too long) and now, "An ardent cosmic journey." which is the permanent one! It sounds so intelligent (to me anyway. It means "A passionate and grand journey"), disguising the not-so-intelligent me lol! Also, I know this is a fairly late post concerning Valentine's but then this is my blog, not yours so I can do whatever I want. Okay, don't take that seriously, I was just messing around with you! Okay HalfCrazy, stop babbling so much and start your post already.

I've been pretty much 'single' all my life (by all my life, I mean 17 years old) with a few serious and not-so-serious relationships here and there but I have never, so far, fell bad for somebody. There are a few reasons I could think of that I'm sure a lot of us can relate to and here they are:

There are a lot of things I want to do by myself. I enjoy watching movies alone so I can focus on the film and the message. I love reading and the slightest noise would irritate me. These are just some things but there are a whole lot more. It's not like I don't want people around me; I'm actually afraid of being alone and no one to talk to but there are some things I would rather do without anyone's company because they're just distracting!

Commitment. Commitment with friends is alright but a commitment in a serious relationship is something I'm not good in. I'm not really afraid of commitment, it's just that I'm not too good at it.

When I'm in a relationship, I hate having to text him every single day of forever answering his questions that he already asked the other day (and preceding days) like "Have you had lunch already?" "What are you doing?" like seriously, don't you have your own life lol? It's sweet sometimes but I just don't want to go and answer repetitive questions that lead nowhere! I love "Good morning, sweetie!", though. It brightens up my day! But then they follow it up with "Have you had breakfast already?" LOL. It's nice but not all the time!

I hate it when he always hangs around me. It's nice to be together but I always make it clear that even if we are in a relationship, he should still hang out with his friends and me with mine. We both need space otherwise we would look alike as we are always together! Our faces might trade without space! Besides, missing each other is better as being together all the time spells boredom later on. Life must go on with added responsibilities here and there. We must not close the world behind us, it doesn't work that way. We should continue to develop individually.

Oh, and there are times when you have to split the bills or he pays the bills or sometimes I do. I really can't save much when I'm in a relationship LOL.
  • My ideal Commitment. Seeing him 3-4 times a week is ideal. Whenever we meet, we have loads of stories to tell and we miss each other more. Distance makes the heart go fonder but not a really LONG distance like once a month LOL. There is a lot of room for self development that we must continue to develop and not stop just because we entered a relationship. As much as possible, we should not go to the same school or have the same schedule. I always value space for our own good. I don't want us t o be in each other's necks. If we're not together, we should consider our limitations, we should be faithful and honest to each other.
Guy Requirements.
  • I want an intelligent guy and has an adequate knowledge of the world. And no, there is no Educational Requirement like "He should have straight A's!" or "He shouldn't have any failing grades!" as I failed a lot of subjects myself LOL. Just as long as he is intelligent (not really Academic based), then he is qualified! I want someone who cannot live without books. (Regards to Thomas Jefferson!)
  • We should have some same interests. (Preferably a lover of music, books, films and technology)
  • Is properly groomed. (Hair, clothes, etc.)
  • Has a good sense of humor, preferably the same humor as mine.
  • As for the traits, I don't know what I want but I know what I don't want.
  • Must start as friends and decide later on if it's gonna be moved to the next level.
Yeah, just looking at this and you might say, "Incredibly picky!" but it's not like I want my every requirement to be there. Of course I make some considerations! Sometimes, I wonder if I can ever find a guy who possesses almost all of the requirements. If I ever do, I swear I won't stop until he's mine! Go me!

Not showing much interest to almost all of the guys who make their move. Yeah, most of the time, I don't give them a chance to show how serious they are. Probably because they're not my type and/or I don't know them that well. As I've mentioned before, I want us to be friends first. I want someone who loves me for who I am, someone who can accept my negative traits. I ignore a lot of things they say that is related to them liking me. Sometimes, I don't know what's wrong with me!

That concludes mine. What about yours?

No one in the corner have swagger like me?

First off, let me thank everyone who commented or have read my previous post. Lots of ideas seem to creep up on me the past few days but I was too lazy to write. Now that I want to write, them ideas just vanished! Oh, it reappeared again lol! Okay so what's the menu for today?

Movie: The Truman Show
Music: Katy Perry's One Of The Boys Album and some Grammy Awards stuff
Life: Just random stuff.

Now you don't have to read everything. Just whatever interests you! But I would appreciate it more if you read everything, reader! :P Or you can read one segment per day! I write multiple topics so everyone can relate. Oh, just do whatever you want! :P

Movie: The Truman Show (1998)
Jim Carrey stars in this one. I've seen him in many films in which he was awesome. The guy is totally underrated and deserves more Awards! Give him more awards, damn it! The Truman Show is something like Big Brother except he doesn't know. This movie came out just before the Reality Show business boomed. For some reason, the movie predicted the rise of reality TV and maybe influenced Reality Shows. Now we get a whole horde of them but only one or two are interesting lol! Now going back, this movie has a big heart and you should definitely watch it and see how Jim acts very natural. This movie will make you cry and think. I know it's an old movie but this is a movie you must watch before you die!

Rating: 8/10.
P.S., Rated PG-13, a movie that everyone in the family can watch.

Music. Katy Perry's One Of The Boys Album. She kissed a girl and she liked it, check! She allowed herself to be a laughing stock in front of the European Music Awards by plunging herself and slipping 2-3 times on purpose in a huge cake, check! Beautiful physical appearance, check! Absolutely hairless and white underarms? WHAT? Well, uhm, check? Hahaha! So she's a very promising star, maybe more promising than Rihanna but not as promising as Lady Gaga! I have her album like months ago, a week after I Kissed A Girl but this is the first time I actually listened to it! She's got some really great songs but there are times her songs suffer from the same alternative tune we've heard so many times before. Half of the songs in her album are worth listening to so if you're a fan of Pop Rock like Pink, Avril Lavigne, etc., you should definitely check her out!

Rating: 7/10
P.S., Totally fun pop rock music!

Some might say she's a poser. I say enough of the stereotypes! It's all about the music, the lyrics and the overall feel and soul of the song. For example, I don't dig the Jonas Brothers but I liked Lovebug because of the lyrics and the video. I don't dig Camp Rock but I loved Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato's This Is Me. Don't just stick to one or two genres and generalize an artist!

Grammy Awards. (Just some reactions.)
Record of the Year: Please Read This Letter. I haven't listened to it but let's go to the other contender, M.I.A. The girl deserves it! She splashed into the music scene with her album Kala which is Indian music fused with crazy stuff. If you have watched Slumdog Millionaire, you'll hear some of the songs there. Chasing Pavements by Adele is heavy competition and the performance with Sugarland was totally hair rising and outstanding but sadly, she lost against Robert Plant and Alison Krauss but she took home a couple of awards.
Song Of The Year: Viva La Vida by Coldplay. Enough said, this song is pure genius! Everything is perfect about the song. The only contender I was rooting for is American Boy by Estelle ft. Kanye West.
Best Dance Recording: Daft Punk's Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. Not a fan of Daft Punk but I was pleased with the song. It would have been better if Lady Gaga's Just Dance took home the award, though! No, I don't think I'm not so biased!
Best Rap Album: Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III. I really love Lil Wayne and perhaps my most favorite track on his album is Dr. Carter! It's just really brilliant stuff. But then there's American Gangster by Jay-Z and Lupe Fiasco's The Cool which are both awesome. Jay-Z's album American Gangster is inspired by the same name which Ridley Scott directed and Denzel Washington stars in. It's about a drug lord named Frank Lucas. Anyway, the movie is about 3 hours long so check it out if you have time! I rate the movie a 10 out of 10, by the way.
Best Rap Performance by A Duo or Group: Swagger Like Us by T.I., Lil Wayne, Kanye West and M.I.A. This song is by far the best rap song I've ever heard and I'm not over exaggerating! PLEASE, please, check this song out!

There are so many awards and I'm too lazy to type them all and tell what I think lol! So this should suffice for now!

  • I can't wait for this week to be over. All I want right now is to rest! There are so many things I wanna do. Like read a book I just picked up, Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern, watch a new movie, I'll pick between Zack And Miri Make A Porno and Trainspotting, I need a dose of 30 Rock, I need to hang out with High School Friends this upcoming Valentine's, actually get to sleep like 8 hours a day, nap included. This is how I relax but with school getting in the way, all I wanna do is to rest, rest, rest!
  • I forgot to check if my application for shifting to Psychology was approved.
  • This is a great day, I picked up plenty of courage in one class because I made some new friends, listened attentively to a panel discussion about the Executive Department and just talked and talked with people around me when someone was reporting about Charlemagne the Great lol.
  • I tasted a new sort of Pizza. Milano from Pizza Hut.
  • I passed a Valentine's Card to my Professor. A Valentine's Card for the country.
  • I feel dehydrated these past few days.
  • I finished reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. A pretty good fiction book fused with the author's philosophical views. Rating: 7/10.
  • I want to go somewhere quiet. There are times like this that I find the city very chaotic and I can't concentrate!
  • What is your favorite cereal? Mine's Koko Krunch and Corn Flakes.
  • I'll sleep after writing this.
Something to check out:

LOL this is so cute! Just about a minute long.
(Big thanks to Menatsu for sharing this video!) =))
Much Love,

Some bottle popping and Slumdog Millionaire fever!

Before you read this, I suggest reading the little wall of text under my blog title 'If the past is the problem, our future could solve them' After that continue reading this. Got your attention? Great! Well first off, I don't just blog about a single topic in one post. I blog about 2 or 3 (or more!) topics per post as I love variety and sticking to just one topic would be very boring for you and me! Now as this is my first blog, I don't want to go into the 'getting to know me' segment thing as it would be better if you know me through my blogs and my personal opinions and that's better, right? You agree? Then we'll be good friends! Hahaha.

Now let me start off with my first topic, The Pussycat Dolls! Hate them or love them, they don't care! For the record, I love them and I'm a fangirl and don't worry, I won't scratch you to death with my Pussy-cat claws if you say you don't dig them! Now whatever. So they recently released their video, Bottle Pop and here it is:

Here is an HQ one:
(Big thanks to PCD World)

I'm a fan but I absolutely don't like this video. Yes it's shiny and can be awesome at times and it could have been better with proper camera handling! The Dolls look great, they really do; but their props are wasted for this pretty mediocre video. Director Thomas Kloss, if you're ever reading this, please put more effort next time and maybe fire your camera crew or whoever it is who filmed this thing. If it's you, then pardon me but it's a pretty crappy take. The Dolls would have been better with Director Francis Lawrence (Buttons) and it makes Director Diane Martel's take on Whatcha Think About That make sense! Dolls, please go back to Director Joseph Kahn (When I Grow Up, I Hate This Part) for a more professional and respectful video!

P.S. Please buy Doll Domination, the 2nd studio album of the Pussycat Dolls. Also buy Top Of The World and I Hate This Part. This is a recommendation!

Rating: 6 out of 10.

Yes, this might be the 13246th time you're gonna read something about Slumdog Millionaire. I have seen it a good 2 or 3 weeks ago and like what people are saying, it's a damn good movie! Yeah it's kinda of unrealistic (with the boy winning and everything) but it's very original and the execution of the actors make up for it! Go see it. It deserves all the awards it won and props to Director Danny Boyle for a damn good job! Worried whether to see this or The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button? See this instead or maybe watch both but Slumdog Millionaire is something you shouldn't miss.

Rating: 10/10

Now I've been reading loads about Slumdog Millionaire and this little trivia caught my eye:
+ Mercedes-Benz asked that its logos be removed in scenes taking place in the slums. The company, according to Danny Boyle, did not want to be associated with the poverty-stricken area, fearing that that might taint its image.

I promise to not buy a Mercedes-Benz product in the future. Not because I live in the slums but because I think what Mercedes-Benz did is sort of offending. If I ever become a millionaire someday, I'll remember my promise to not buy a Mercedes-Benz!

So what's cracking?
+ I'm currently taking up Computer Science. I love it but it brought me down (numerous failed subjects and Math ruined it all for me). So I thought of shifting to Psychology instead and I'll wait for the approval next week! I have love for Psychology anyway. If I could only take Communication Arts instead or something related to media!
+ A lot of people piss me off right now because of their ignorance when it comes to certain things. If only everyone could just read books and stop talking just for once and listen to the world and the people around them!
+ I can't think of anything else but I'm pretty busy these days because of tests, reports and whatnot.

Much Love,
