And so I listened...

"But then it becomes like fire burning in my heart,
imprisoned in my bones;
I grow weary holding it in, I cannot endure it."

Jeremiah 20:9


"Do not conform yourselves to this age
but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,
that you may discern what is the will of God,
what is good and pleasing and perfect."

Romans 12:2

Weeeeeeeeee :)

Super thankful ako ngayon kay God. :)

I wasn't able to sleep these past few nights because of that &^$#%$ Nutrition class. FORTUNATELY, Carol was able to help me get into one of the online classes. That means I wouldn't have to go to Spearfish! YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

Thank you talaga, God. :) :) :)

Thank you din sa mga prayers nyo. :]

I now wait with bated breath

Carol, my academic advisor, e-mailed me back a while ago, saying she requested a (slot in the) Nutrition class on my behalf. If all goes well, I might not have to go to Spearfish for Fall Semester. The distance between Spearfish and our house is similar to the distance between MANILA and TARLAC. Imagine driving that far THREE TIMES A WEEK on an icy (and very slippery) road. And then imagine having to spend $15 PER DAY for gas.

I now ask for your prayers about this matter. It might not be as "serious" as it may appear, but it is so much better for me to stay here in Rapid City for the next semester. Not only will I prevent adding financial strains to my family, I will also be able to keep myself alive for another semester (which may not be very beneficial to mother earth, actually XD).

I may be able to post an update about this (possibly) tomorrow.

Thank you.

When everything seems to be falling apart...

Turn on the computer and do some guapo hunting.

So, here you go. Drumrolls, please.


*from BryanBoy

*I have no idea where I got this and who he is. But he's gorgeous.

*Blue's Duncan James. "Best in Me" screenshot. Men look good in shadows. XD

*from PerezHilton. BTW, Matthew is GAY. Oh well.

*a younger Ben Barnes

*William Moseley my labs

*Ben's and William's pictures came from this site.

*Skandardoodliekins XD. My gulay. Skandar is super gorgeous in this pitsur no? source

*Mutaib, grandson of King Faisal (of KSA) source

To be continued tomorrow na siguro. Inaantok nako. I have to wake up early to talk to BHSU's and SDSU's advisors, or whoever is there to help me out. Please pray that I can get a slot for SDSU's Nutrition class. It's not just impractical for me to get into Spearfish thrice a week, it's also dangerous because of the icy roads during wintertime.

Apdeyt agen

It's confirmed: Ms. Neumann is my English 201 instructor. That would change IF I would HAVE to go to Spearfish. Noooooo. :( I want to stay here in Rapid. I want to go back to SDSMT! :(

It's a sad, sad day.

Walanghiyang Nutrisyon yan!

Ilang beses na akong tinatanggihan ng subject na ito. Asar na asar na talaga ako. Noong summer, nag-aapply ako, naubusan ako ng slot. Ngayon, nakapag-register ako, kinancel naman yung klase! ANO BA HA?!!!

Ito na lang ang kaisa-isang subject na kailangan ko para makapunta sa nursing!!!!!! Leche naman e! Nakakainis na talaga. Pag ako, di pa nakapag-apply ngayon, wala nakong choice kundi sa Spearfish mag-aral! Eh ISANG ORAS ang layo noon dito sa bahay namin! ISANG ORAS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kamusta naman yun? E di approximately 2 hours per day ako magbibiyahe!!! Tapos THRICE a week pa!!! EXSHOOS ME?! Edi gas palang, ubos na ang budget ko! PLUS, kailangan ko pa niyang i-drop ang iba kong subject! PESTE naman o. Bwisit namang buhay ito. Bat ba lagi na lang akong walang choice?!!!!!!!!!!

I was informed that I don't have to take ELTA in order to get into the major; "TOEFL would be sufficient".

So now everything depends on that TOEFL score. I wonder what would become of me if I don't get the minimum required score.

1. I cannot get into the major
2. I would have to retake the test
3. Another 6 months of delayed graduation



I decided not to leave my job. It's all about the munneh, dood. XD Besides, I think it's unfair that my classmates have jobs while I don't.

Good thing my manager let me change my availability time though. I would have no choice but to quit if I can't change my schedule. I can not and can never sacrifice my studies.

God forbid this to be my song forever.

Tapos na ang TOEFL

Ang hiraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap. :( It was NOTHING like those practice tests found in the internet. Since I signed a statement forbidding myself to not disclose any test question to anyone, wala nakong pwedeng ikwento pa. Gutom na din ako, kasi 4 hours yung test, at kanina pang 7:00am ako umalis ng bahay. WAAAH.

Ano kayang nakuha ko?

Suspense na itech.

In other news, nalinis na yung bintana sa kwarto ko. Yay!

I will spend the rest of my day reading To Kill a Mockingbird while eating M&Ms. Nako, eto na naman tayo. :P

I will be taking the TOEFL tomorrow *cries*. SDSU requires a minimum score of 100/120 for a student to get into the nursing proper. That means I am allowed to ONLY 5 "mistakes" per section.

Problem is, I currently have a cold and I sound terrible. I hope that wouldn't count against me in the speaking section. Hey, even native English speakers get clogged noses, ya know.

Gotta go back to my review. :{

If Only

Eto na naman. Matagal ko na ring hindi nararanasan ito. Hindi ko na rin hiniling na maranasan ko ito muli. Ayaw ko ng manatiling gising tuwing gabi, lumuluha, tinitiis ang sakit. Suko na ako, hindi ko na kaya. Ipagkakatiwala ko na lang lahat sa kanya:

It ended too soon, I suppose. It was quite funny, actually when I thought about it and asked myself: "What now?" Then this voice inside my head whispered: "Edi balik kay _______."

Haha. Jeez mehn.

But dude, it hurt pa din. XD Maybe I was just disappointed because I thought he's better than that--that he's different. Well, he's not. :p And there you go.

I DON'T want to go to school just yet. I'm still enjoying my freedom (from schoolwork, essays, , reports, CRAMMING, and social life).

I stumbled upon Blue's video of "Best in Me" a while ago. Lee is so guapo! XD

Mary Grace Decides to Die

"But how will I know who my Soulmate is?"

"By taking risks," Wicca said to Brida. "By risking failure, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in your search for Love. As long as you keep looking you will triumph in the end".

to the "slow motion moments"
to the fireworks and bubbles

to you.

Bring me back to my hometown. It's the only place I can belong.

Naramdaman kong muli ang pagbagsak ng mundo sa mga balikat ko.

There will be NO Harry Potter movie this November.

We repeat.

No Harry Potter movie this November, as previously expected and announced.

The popular franchise's release has been postponed to July 2009, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The studio, Warner Bros. is blaming the Writers' Strike.

Because of the strike, some of the big 'tentpole' movies they were counting on for Summer 2009 won't be ready, so they'll need HP to get them through next year's big season.

They say

"Like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films-changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of," he said. "We agreed the best strategy was to move 'Half-Blood Prince' to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer."

To the cute microbiologist who's gonna examine my stool


Well if you're reading this, you already know it's you. I walked into the lab today because of chronic diarrhea, and they called you specifically to take care of my case. You were so cute when you said I had abnormally huge taste buds. When you said you had to have another look at the back of my throat, it was obvious you just wanted to see their freaky fatness once more, and I called you on it. You then turned completely red, and I don't know if it was because of my grossly exaggerated yet founded accusations or because I wasn't wearing a bra and you left me waiting for like 45 minutes in an industrial AC powered office.

You're gonna be growing five different cultures from my stool in the next week and I have no idea, despite all my funk and resourcefulness, how to make the idea of giving me a call after work seem inspiring. Between all these questions you're asking me, all of which are related to my loose bowel movements, and the fact that you could lose your license if you got together with a patient, there is just no way I can slip you my number.

I don't really know what to do. I think I'm gonna try to run into you at the end of your internship at this hospital. I hear if it's not in an office, there is no law to prevent me hitting on you, and you taking it up. If you're not gay that is - cause you sort of give off that kind of vibe too.

But if you're not, where is my highest chance of running into you completely by chance, one morning when I'm not your patient and you're not my hot, out-of-bounds microbiologist?


NOTE: This is from I do NOT have anything to do with a single word written above. I just think this one's funny so I decided to share it. XD

I had a wonderful dream... and a wonderful day.

Thank God. :)
