Bye bye 2008, hello 2009! Yes, finally another year has started. Whew! Wonder what this year brings. Hmm. I know we've only just begun (la la la..okay, not the song. point is...) but I want to fast forward to this year's end.
By the end of 2009, I'd be a year older. DUH. But really, this year, is prolly a turning point for me. December 19 is the day I'd finally be 18. Not that I've been waiting for it or anything. I really don't know why people make such a fuss about being EIGHTEEN. I mean, yes sure you'd have more privileges but oh cmon, d'you really want to age? Hm. So it's about getting in the movies with warnings that says R-18, huh? Hah! Guilty!
..but anyhoo, as I was saying...I guess, being 18 and being legal in so many ways give you the sense of freedom. This is the time to say good bye to curfews and most of mommy and daddy's do's and don'ts. Wuhoo! Right? Ain't that fun? You don't expect them to keep on reminding you at the point that you have to brush your teeth after every meals, that you have to take a bath, etc etc. This is the time when you're grown enough to take care of yourself and be the one mostly responsible for every action you do.
So I guess, this year, what I'm really aiming for is to get an ostentatious car and a ultramegaHOTT & rich boyfriend that'd provide me with what I deserve to have as an independent woman. Mind you, I'm calling myself a woman and not just a lady anymore. Ha!
...Kidding! I'm not a spoiled b****. ;)
What I'm really trying to say is that, I want to be more independent this year(Hear that? Hah! I do! I do!). Really. Most 17 year olds know how to cross the street. Most teens my age knows how to cook, wash, iron and all those other things I'm not capable of (at the moment, okay? gimme a chance!). So, I have to start learning all those things.
I just wish, hope and pray that I'd survive. :]
oh btw, if you have time..yes YOU! Add me :D * mind you, these are all active accounts and I check them almost everyday.

After 10 years, naisipan ko ulit iupdate 'tong blog. Actually, ilang araw ko na rin pinag-iisipan gawin 'to ngunit, subalit, datapwat, kaso nga lang hindi ko alam kung ano ba dapat kong ilagay. Sooooo, ngayon naisipan kong humanap ng inspirasyon sa mga pictures ko dito sa laptop. Voila! Ito na nga, I'm typing! I'm typing!
Hep hep! Random lang 'to kaya pagpasensyahan mo na.
Siguro nagtataka na kayo (feeling maraming readers. ganon talaga. think positive daw eh) kung bakit nga ba Faded Photographs ang title ko. Parang wow! ang deep! no? Eh, parang lang. bwaha. Joke! Well, kasi habang natingin ako ng mga pictures kanina, namiss ko bigla ang highschool days ko (Oo, obviously, highschool pictures ang tinitingnan ko!). Sobrang dami ng nagbago mula non. Sobrang simple lang ng buhay non (kala mo lolang nagkukwento sa apo eh no?) sa highschool. Kahit pa nagsasayaw kami sa corridors, go lang ng go!
Diba, parang ang happy happy? Wala lang. I miss them. Infairness, FYI..batch na namin yan. Oo, maniwala ka.
So, paano ba yan mga bata..Ubos na ang ating oras, hanggang sa susunod na kabanata ;)

It's the second night of Simbang Gabi and I went with only my mom. We were waiting for my dad to pick us up somewhere a bit nearer to our house. I wanted to go elsewhere to see my friend but to my disappointment, she didn't let me saying that my dad would be there any minute and we can't afford to make him wait (He's just not the most patient person in the world). I told her that I wouldn't take long and that my dad would prolly arrive later as always. Huh, that still didn't convince her, but guess what? I was right. Turns out, my dad fell asleep so she decided that we start walking. It was damn freezing cold! I didn't bring my jacket, to make matters worse. Gahh! So coooold. What's happening to the world?!
Uh. Sigh. Hug, anyone?

Well yeah, the saga made me all goo-goo-ga-ga over 'em. Seriously. It was an amazing story. That is if you're into romance and all that. Like Harry Potter, I wished for it to be magically viewed in the big screen. Sure, it'd be quite tricky and stuff but HP pulled it off so why not Twilight?
Poof! And now, look at the picture. Yes, indeed that is the movie I was wishing for months back. Finally! Because the wait was too long and hard to bare (exagg, I know!). Little by little, trailers and sneak previews came out and the fans (including me, myself and I) just went wild with anticipation. Then, after the very looooooooooooooooooooooooooong wait, it was time for the movie's release.
Anyway, let's just get to the point, shall we? To cut it short, I was finally able to watch it. Unfortunately, impatience got the best of me so I ended up watching it from the Internet. And let me tell you, it wasn't of good quality just yet. As for the movie, I give it a star. Yey! You think that's good? Well, you know how rating goes, right? The highest to give are five shining, shimmering stars. I'm quite sure some would beg to differ but I know there are those who are just as disappointed as I am.
I do know that the movie version usually has lots of scenes from the original story taken out to make it shorter and more precise but I don't think they did a good job doing that. Honestly, I thought they cut most of the important parts. Some of what they've taken out are essential to the other three books. How they would relate them next time? We have yet to witness.
So, how about you? How do you find the movie version of the best selling novel, Twilight?

As I look back on what happened before, eveything seems a blurr. Well, yea. seriously. It seems like everything has just started. We were in our classroom, getting to know each other. Aww. It all started with the BENEKATORSE. A class of fourteen students who hardly got along. Seriously. Let's admit it. Our class always fought, right? It was almost every month that we had to have an open forum just to solve our probs. Whatelse? Oh! And our ever presentable presentations. gawd. "oh bacteria go away, go away you blow my mind..i'm healthy..yea yea..i'm healthy..uhuh-uhuh" haha. Anyways, we hated school back then. I mean, literally HATE. We actually despised it. haha! Then, Lioba... what happened then? Our lives were quiet that time...i think. Though, they never ran out of issues to accuse us. We were always given "the talk." Oh well. Aren't we oh-so used to that yet?
Then, here comes the bestest year for us. *cheers* Juniors! Ehrentrudis :] aww. we had a great year and a very memorable reco. I believe that this year was a blast for most if not all since we became one. dibaa? Also, this year was the highlight (somehow) of our HS life. We had so much fun, we did what we wanted and luckily got a way with it. Haha! Anyways, another is of course, our much awaited Quinceñera. Yey!We never expected it to be that much fun. It was suuppeerr! love it
Lastly, now here we are standing hand in hand in search for our destiny. Finally, we are in our fourth and final year in St. Scho. In a few weeks, we'll be marching down the aisle, receiving our diplomas and bowing down in front of our proud parents and teachers. The end has finally come. Humbeline '08 is finally leaving the Scholastican premises and will soon be entering new different places for new journeys that await.
"Now here we are, I'm suddenly standing, at the beginning with you..."
Eversince I started studying in Scho, my goal has always been to graduate. Simply because I wanted to leave that school. Seriously and honestly speaking. I hated going to school especially when I was in 1st year. All I did was complain and whine, whine, whine. Everything just changed when I became a Junior. I enjoyed my stay well, mainly because of my ever beloved classmates. Ooh! I love you guys. Suuppeerr!!
It's just now that I've realized I too will miss St. Scho. I will miss my schoolmates, the manongs and kuyas, the ates, sila kuya guard, the sisters (Sister Reggie!), the staff and the faculty of course. I will miss...
* bugging the teachers in the faculty room
* making kulit the ates in the canteen
* saying 'hi' to the manongs and kuyas whenever I see them
* making kwento with Kuya guard
* asking Sir Owen to take our picture
* working in the principal's office during the preparation of the party for Nightmare before Christmas (Ooh! Reese's!)
* borrowing speakers from Ms. Belle
* weighing my self and checking my height in the clinic
* practicing the mass songs with Ms. Donna
* singing the Lupang hinirang with the glee club
* having theater productions during arts' month with sir shaun
* going to Inchican (woohoo!)
* going to manila riding the St. Scho bus
* our retreats in tagaytay
* the cellphone inspections
* making new friends
* bonding with the little kids in the GS
* spending time with my glee mates when there's no club (aww..)
* having fun with the lower levels (yhee! Margaret=twin) :]
* a whole lot more.XD
What I will miss even more...
♥YEAR I-ST. BENEDICT
♥YEAR II-ST. LIOBA
♥YEAR III-ST. EHRENTRUDIS

"Well, I wasn't going to live without you.." He rolled his eyes as if that fact were childishly obvious. "..but I wasn't sure how to do it. I knew Emmett and Jasper would never help so I was thinking maybe I would go to Italy and do something to provoke the Volturi."
*As you leave the house, a normal guy would say: “Bye, see ya!”
As you leave the house Edward Cullen would say: “Come back to me, love.”
He smiled my favorite smile. "Hurry back to me."
*As you come back to the house, a normal guy would be watching TV and wouldn’t even notice.
As you come back to the house, Edward Cullen would be welcoming you by playing the piano with a song just for you.
"I heard the music before I was out of the car. Edward hadn't touched his piano since the night Alice left. Now, as I shut the door, I heard the song morph through a bridge and change into my lulluby. Edward was welcoming me home.'
*A normal guy would wait for you to make him breakfast.

forgiveness, but that doesn’t let me escape the consequences.”
*A normal guy ignores the scrapes on the heels of your hands
Edward Cullen overacts about the scrapes on the heels of your hands.
"Your hands," he reminded me. I looked down at my palms, at the almost-healed
scrapes across the heels of my hands. His eyes missed nothing.
"I fell," I sighed.
"That's what I thought." His lips curved up at the corners. "I suppose, being you,
it could have been much worse — and that possibility tormented me the entire
time I was away."
*A normal guy waits until you get inside your house. Then he leaves.
Edward Cullen waits until you get inside your house. Then he returns his car to their house and goes back to your room to watch you sleep.
