school, freelance, antics.

School will soon be over for me. about 6 months left. I almost feel like i'm going to miss being a student. i'll prolly experience the same withdrawals i did with high school. heh, i still suffer from random withdrawals, missing the good times with good friends in hawaii. but i'm excited nonetheless! hope things go smoothly.

sometimes people don't understand how much education/talent/time goes into design.
i don't have a sign with me at all times that says, will work for free.
FREElance does not mean FREE.

can't live without LIVING right?
well joe and i have been spending time with each other a lot. its been nice.
i like that fact that we're jobless. we're not LOVEless. the best part. ha.

this homeless man,

was on the corner on on the I17 and dunlap.

joe and i were leaving barnes & nobles
and saw him on our way to school.

we always try to give what we can but there's always doubt in the back of my mind about what they'd do with the money.... drugs, alcohol... so i always try to give food. the only thing i had on me was my 2/3 full 20 ounce bottle of Bolthouse Farm berry juice. the homeless man took it along with joe's dollar. he took a sip while we waited for the light to turn green and we could read his lips say, "that's damn good."

why was he standing there with his cart and worn out clothes? why was he homeless? why wasn't anyone helping him?

Dear God,

Last year has been one of the roughest years i've ever lived in my whole 22 years of living ever. It is unfortunate that people like myself only realize things when bad things happen but i knew that one day I'd have to prepare myself for a personal revelation.

This lent I do not want to give up something that is simple and incomparable to the life that jesus sacrificed.

For lent i will be giving up the grudges, ill will and negative thoughts i have for any enemy i may have or for people that i don't even know. we are all so quick to judge and i am going to change that about myself. i have kept this point of view since birth but i feel that that part of me has slipped many times.

Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." (Matthew 5:38-39)...Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:38-44)

only you can teach me to learn to love my enemies and bless those that curse me because they know not what they do.

mass is at 8:30 am.
good night.

VALENTINE's was the sweetest. my joeDaddy took me on a SURPRISE gondola ride. :) and our good friends from vegas came in to visit during nba all star weekend.

BUT in other news holy fuck CHRIS BROWN! you buss up rihanna's face YET rihanna still texts chris makin sure he's ok and NOT CHEATING ON HER. haaa. oh lord. i'm sorry but this smells like ike and tina. :(

AND Aubrey O'day my new fave ho... since the good girl reversal of nicole richie... git it gurrrl! she's the march feature on playboy. i might just buy my first playboy cuz she's on it. ha. but i think diddy's dumb. sorry he should helped worked things out. they are HIS investment. so why not help to mend things. but they are big girls now sooo if they can't do it then maybe DK is better off BROKEN.

president obama: first things first.

shutting down guantanamo.

gutsy move. but i love it. its the only we way can show the world that we mean business but on OUR terms. its not a peace offering but more of a concise way of getting our nation's message across the world.

"The message that we are sending the world is that the United States intends to prosecute the ongoing struggle against violence and terrorism and we are going to do so vigilantly and we are going to do so effectively and we are going to do so in a manner that is consistent with our values and our ideals," the president said.

sometimes i think i let myself get overly excited,
to only get let down... and its not even my fault.

i don't want to lower my expectations in life because things don't always go my way. life just needs to step the fuck up.

amidst all the confusion i can still find bits and pieces of myself.

i was broken and lost along the way.
now its time to clean up my mess and fix what's broken.

why is it so hard?

in the case of family, friends and love.

i keep getting closer and closer to my family and i love it.
my mom and i are still two peas in pod. she's always been there for me through all the things i've been through this year and i've done the same. i guess the apple does fall not too far from the tree. my sisters are uber awesome haaaa. although lani's JDM transformation is starting to worry me (she speaks japanese and reads hellla anime!), joyce's exessive interest in sports (she's doing cross country, softball, AND basketball!) and pelita's socialite ways (she myspaces just as much as i do! ha).... i love em the same as i always have, if anything probably more.... and dad has actually gone through a complete turnaround, personality wise; more fun and supportive, something i never really saw as a kid.

i feel as if i'm falling into the ADULT phase of my life waaay too soon. i've become more dependent on myself as being my friend because i don't let myself down... i've learned from my mistakes; choosing to let certain people in my life and thinking that they were really good people. it's time for me to really put up my guard again, which i hate doin. but in all honesty i hate doin this because i lose out on the REALLY good people that i choose to block out. if only it was sooo easy to find people that CLICK with me and not just leech on me for kindness, sympathy and my time. i don't wanna deal with that kinda people from now on so i'm not going to put in a lot into a relationship if it's not going to be reciprocated.

i miss the zoos. even though i've seen them a couple times, this past holiday has been a crazy one for me and for all of us. hopefully there will be a full blown reunion! but regardless. the zoo animals were a group of people i met in highschool that came from different cliques/backgrounds and even though we were all different, we all got along soooo well. and almost 5 years later here we are. love the zoos! VIVA LA ZOO ANIMALS!

love. love is unconditional yet we love under certain conditions. why are we so picky? i dunno but i know i've picked the right one. it's been a crazy year for me and joeDADDY but we've come up top, over all of it. and i'm glad i can still stand his prickly chin on my cheek, his huggable lovable LOVE handles, his nightly cravings for snacks, his lil lip twitch that he does when he's lying... everything. and i'm grateful he can still love me after all that we've been through. with every weight lifted off our shoulders the stronger we become. :)


if you're filipino,
bang pots and put coins in your pockets and jump up and down!

start the year off right ladies and gents!
