Jeers for Fears

Status updates, et cetera. 

Oct. 18. Talagang nagmamadali na magtapos itong MHL ha. Two timejumps in one ep. Four years total!
Oct. 18. Dalawang phoner, isang umaga at isang hapon. Natulog pagkatapos nung una. Kakasubmit lang ng article. Edit naman ng iba. Gutom. MHL ending mamaya. Di na makakahabol sa gym. Hectic na masaya. Sana makapagdrowing pa.
Oct. 19. MHL ending. Ehh.
Oct. 20. As an adult, I'm a combination of my insecurities, hopes and dreams. I still have childlike enthusiasm. And while I have to be more responsible now, I don't see that changing any time soon.
Oct. 23. OMG, Korra. Really good episodes!
Oct. 24. Early Wednesday morning, around 3 a.m., people in our neighborhood woke up to thick smoke. A few houses away, about a hundred feet from ours, a shop/showroom (it sold decor, antiques, etc.) was ablaze. A number of people tried to extinguish it.
I, and probably a few others, scrambled to call firefighters. They arrived some time later, and it was a struggle to put the fire out. The bright orange glow of the burning building, just behind a neighbor's house, was one of the scariest things I've seen. All that time, I was all, "fuuuuuuuckkkk!" But I tried to appear calm. I was surprised that a few people were actually calm enough to record the inferno with their phones.
Thankfully, the flames were extinguished and prevented from spreading. And save for the owner of that shop, everyone felt lucky. Stressed, but relieved.
Oct. 27. "I’ve felt and known true happiness. I still do. I’ve earned some rewards, and share what I can. I don’t try to justify my failures, at least most of the time. I don’t believe in the zodiac, but it’s funny that I’m a Scorpio through and through. Well, I’m just what I am. So few people get that, but I’m glad that I don’t have to conform to anyone’s imagined template of me." --Me, from a blog entry dated Jan. 25, 2008. Therapeutic blogging days.
Oct. 27. Nag-number one last week sa Inquirer-Entertainment site yung article ko, review ng My Husband's Lover. Alam kong troll-bait siya; ganun kasi ang nangyari nang magsulat ako tungkol doon mga almost three months ago. Hindi ko na pinapansin ang comments, panay anti-gay at ignorante, at may nag-suggest pa na mag-direct daw muna ako bago mag-criticize. Ha! :D
Oct. 27. Yeah, social networking sites. Where we whine, brag, attack. But they're also where we celebrate, encourage, connect.
