Haggs dream. There was this person I like, and he seems to resent me. Finally he told me the reason: it's because my mom cheated with his dad @_@ and i was like, no waaay. He told me the month and the year it happened (something 2011). Tapos the rest of the dream I was waiting for my mom to go to work so that I could browse her journal and confirm it @_@ I reasoned to myself that it probably wasn't something she would write about, but I had to give it a try anyway. I woke up before I find out anything.

Lurlur. Anyway I'm so happy dream lang yun ano. Pero hypothetically, if it happened now, I would probably just slap her, and then back to normal. I'll keep loving her. God I love my mom.

Okay reality check: "may nagtatanong kung binebenta ba" is different from "may gustong bumili ng photos mo" HAHAHAHA anek anek. But still!! It is implied, right? :))))

I want to talk to you. In person. Facebook messages just doesn't cut it.

I miss you kahit hindi naman tayo close or anything pero shet I want to feel your warmth again. 

Okay, what I need is patience. The weekend can't come soon enough.

Really? A cockroach, really?

I was late; he left early. Lesson: Love waits for no one. HAHAHA

But positives: He did send me a message asking me if I went to a certain event, at a time where it is seemingly random to ask. It is unexpected, and I welcome it with a smile.

Ano ba to

Breaking Bad s02e10

I think this is really the definitive episode where Walt "breaks bad". He doesn't need to do it for money anymore; he realizes he loves it and turns it to a very conscious decision.

It's way scarier if a person does that not out of desperation, but out of choice.

I'm a shitty person sometimes.

I shared that if the passed-out drunk person fell from his chair, I would laugh. What the hell? After watching Breaking Bad and searching for vomit asphyxiation, I am now terribly afraid of drinking parties.

Why can't people be responsible for themselves? Why can't *I* trust people to be responsible for themselves?

Ira Glass on Storytelling: 



- Anecdotes are storytelling in its purest form; not just a statement of fact after fact, but a sequence of events. This happens, and then this happens, but then this happens -> sabi nga sa Story ni Robert Mckee. 

-- The anecdote should encourage questions, and these questions should be answered

-- Moment of reflection: what is the meaning of all this? Dapat may meaning, kaya nakakaasar yung Pink Table joke because it all boils down to nothing.

- Abandon crap: edit, edit your work. Nothing but the best. You'll find a lot of crap and you must have the guts to shove them off your ass (huh). 

- On taste. This is so eloquently said that it must be quoted.

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” 

One of my favorite quotes ever. Keep churning out work. Make deadlines. This is where you oft fail: God of laziness takes the better of you.

- Speak as ifyou're really just talking to a friend; talk like your normal self. Goddam this is hard, narealize ko to nung nagrerecord ako ng narration. My voice and delivery just plain suck. Execution is key - no matter how boring the subject, kung maganda execution wagi yun.

Now go apply these lessons to your life.

I haven't been doing much work this year. I am *not* unemployed, but I am acting as if I am. When I wake up., I open the computer, planning to do some work but one site leads to another and poof, the morning is gone. Then poof, the afternoon is gone. I have been doing less than 3 hours of work per day. Yesterday, I worked for 10 minutes tops. 

The consequence of this is I am poor and I hate this feeling of grepaness but I can't stir myself from my chronic laziness. I need help. I am so distracted and I am having a hard time focusing. 


I have been reading lots of dating websites and askmen subreddits. These are my guilty pleasures; something I don't want to admit even to my closest friend. It's embarassing because I don't practice the advice I read. I just... read them. What's the use, right? I know I should get out more often and fill up that OKC profile and go out on dates, but I always churn out excuses after excuses: I have nothing to wear, I have no money, I would rather curl up and watch Breaking Bad right now... yadda yadda. I need to get out and resist temptations to lazify.  


I really like him. I am afraid of what he'll think of me if/when he finds out what I did a long time ago.

that there are "1.3 million Americans who are full-time RV'ers". 
Huh, that is quite a lot.

Today wasn't as bad as yesterday. The morning started well - took out the binoculars and did some birdwatching on the rooftop. Observed a brown shrike on top of a tree, several eurasian tree sparrows (your friendly mayas) on the ground and on the wires, and the neighbors' doves on their roof. Aaand that's the extent of my bird ID knowledge. There is one bird that I can't identify, it's kind of long, larger than the shrikes and the mayas. It's brownish and weird, medyo magulo feathers niya, so parang hobo bird. Haha ang judgmental eh no. Unfortunately, it didn't stay for long and flew away, and more unfortunately wala akong camera to capture it. 

Meditated for some 8 minutes. New habit na 'to dapat okay! Parang mas calm nga ako afterwards pero baka placebo effect lang yun. Ohwell, will continue.

In the afternoon, I bought new film! Yey will finally get to test Kodak Portra 160. This is the most expensive film roll I bought in my life. Better be worth it! Nakakaexcite :) Though expired na siya (for like a month), I'm still hoping for the best. Afterwards, I dropped off some postcards for my friends, sana matanggap nila by next week. And finally got my voter's ID! After three years haha. Breeze lang yung pagkuha pero ang grepa ng ID ha, hindi colored yung picture and ang flimsy ng material. Well at least hindi papel lang unlike nung Philhealth. Gahd I miss my driver's license tae ano ba kuha ka na ulit!! It has been too long.

Season 2 ep6 of Breaking Bad is my current favorite in the season. Sakit nang pagdemolish sa RV :( And my god namiss ko talaga si Jesse and Walt together so seeing them with a lot of screentime together makes my heart happy. And I sympathize with my favorite character Hank, shet sobrang sakit nun to know you've been played but then it's a testament to what kind of person he is nung sumugod siya sa hospital for his wife. And he was so close!! Grabe yung tension na ang namamagitan lang sa katotohanan ay yung mga pader ng RV.

I am still not finished what up
