As I've mentioned, I've been listening to Demi Lovato. This is my favorite. I love Demi and her voice and the fact that she writes her songs. Also I like to turn to her songs when I'm down. (not that I am now)
I just, well, I needed to spread the Demi :D Also I'm learning to play this.

So I've been listening to Selena Gomez and The Scene's new album. It's very catchy, playful, and a tad more grown up but not quite there yet which I think is just right for her age. It's different, definitely more dance-y. I love that the song's are just, you know, within her vocal range. She may not be the best singer but her voice is really soulful. I love it when she sings low-key. 
This one's my favorite so far. :)
Is it alright if I'm with you for the night? 
Hope you don't mind, if you stay by my side 
We can drive in your car somewhere into the dark, 
Pull over and watch the stars 
We can dance, we can sing, do whatever you think 
As long as I'm with you 

When we are together is the time of our lives 
We can do whatever, be whoever we like 
Spend the weekend dancing, 'cause we sleep when we die 
Don't have to worry 'bout nothing 
We own the night  

It's all a blur, it's getting late, but I don't care 
I don't know where we'll end up and that's OK 
We can drive in your car somewhere into the dark, 
Pull over and watch the stars 
We can dance, we can sing, do whatever you think 
As long as I'm with you 

Nothing last forever, let's live it up, when we're together 
Nothing last forever, so let's live it up 
Just do whatever 

It's early morning here in the Philippines but it's still the 28th in Bahrain so that means I can still greet you Happy 45 Months!

Being together is pretty awesome, isn't it? I mean it's not easy. We get on each others' nerves. Sometimes we don't like each other very much. Sometimes we just can't stand each other. I can be a bitch at random and in turn you could switch on your jerk mode. But most, if not all the time, we still love each other. And very much, at that. :)

I love how much fun we have together - how much adventure and spontaneity we have. I love how we think of the silliest things we'd dare each other to do at the mall. I love how you could tell me the most ridiculous thing that's so obviously just a hoax but I'd fall for it every single time (I question why i love this). I love how you'd always force me to eat pineapple or ketchup even though I've already tried em and hated them anyway. (Remember when we were eating at your place, you were watching me eat waiting for me to find out that the "potatoes" were actually pineapples and you burst out laughing at my reaction?)

I love walks back home where our talks seem to get a bit serious - serious but unforced. I love you driving me home not just because I save money I would otherwise spend on taxis but because it feels grown-up and it's good to see how we've grown together. I love your "Hey apple" texts, they brighten up any day. I love talks on philosophy and somehow I can enjoy our arguments in politics because we're always on opposing sides. I love it when you talk to me about music, I see how passionate you are. And I love that I can tell you about a pop song and not worry you'd judge me, you'd even learn to play the song on guitar. I love how we can be really really good friends (besides being your girl friend).

We first said hello a few years back. To be honest the one thing I'm scared the most of most is, well put it this way, "every hello leads to a goodbye". I know things may not always be the same. I know that we're gonna want different things. I also know that people can change. I just hope that when we do, it's still together.

 I've known you for five years and I've been with you for almost four, I just NEED you to know that I am very very very grateful to have met you and honored to be part of your life. 

So here's to 45 months and hopefully more!

I love you :)
I wanted to go to friendster to check if my photos are still there but damn site won't open :/
Again, please bare with me. I am really sorry I haven't posted in so long. So so long! And thank you, really, for those who still check on my little website. Thanks :)

It's been pretty busy. So much to do (so much I want to do) and so little time. Then there was the typhoon which kept me stuck in my tower of a dorm room for a good two days when it was supposed to be a long weekend. 

I have been watching The Mentalist, it's okay I guess. I like shows about serial killers. It's pretty good but not as good as Criminal Minds, Dexter or Bones. I think the problem is the protagonist seems to be doing most of the work and solves all of the crimes. It's almost as if he could do everything by himself. But I like Patrick Jane. He's lovable and well, broken. His character build-up is pretty good.

I've also been watching Dollhouse again. It seems the shows I like always get cancelled. Is it a coincidence that they're always about conspiracy? (you see how my mind works now)

I have been listening to Demi Lovato's Here We Go Again album and I love it (don't judge). Her songs were well, put it this way, you could practically hear something was up. Or that's just me. I love how much feeling you get out of her music. And so I'm back to playing my guitar (Agot's been very patient teaching me) :) 

I broke my laptop again. Goodbye movies, series, and all the great albums I downloaded. 

I'm currently reading Lovely in Her Bones, it's about a forensic anthropologist. I picked it up at Booksale which is hella cheap! Any mystery-crime novel is good enough for me.

I've been painting too and I love it. I bought myself a paint brush set and this umm plastic palette thing. It's really relaxing and therapeutic and it's amazing how much you can make with just two colors. I haven't given up on drawing and I'm moving on to different cloth now.

I've been trying to make new friends. Hanging out with different circles. It's funny how I hang out with different groups on different days. There's the TTh dinner group, the Friday group, and the first term group. Other than that I've got the same group of friends since high school. I've apparently become anti-social and it's so weird how different my social life is now but I've got other things in mind. But I get to hang out with really good people the past few days.

I've been reading Filipino literary works in English. Dead Stars by Benitez is pretty great. There are a lot of great works but I prefer them 

I've got a fine dining event on July 1 and the attire is Filipiniana. I'm planning to have my own project runway and transform a gown I already have to fit the required attire. Basically I'm figuring out how to make those butterfly sleeves. I'll post that when it's successful. ;)

I've been drinking so much milk tea to calm down but that always ends up with me staying up late.

I've been writing in my diary (yes I do keep one) almost daily. 

There was a week or two where I felt highly emotional and sensitive. I felt like the only good thing going on for me those days were my grades (not to brag). No need to go into full details. Basically I felt broken hence the new stuff I've been busy with, I've been trying to relate. I guess I just needed a little insanity for a while. But all's well now :)

Last Monday and yesterday I was with Agot and his sister Pixie cause she needed my help picking a dress, accessories and shoes. That was nice. She's a really sweet girl.

Anyway, I've got homework and a poster for kids to finish. I'm hoping I can finish that quick so I can continue reading my book.

Post again real soon.
