The thing i regret the most...

0 comments
is not saying a proper goodbye.

it gets me everytime and i keep on thinking what would have happened if i did say it?
Would it be different?
Would i not regret it this much?
Could i have let go more easily?

the answer must surely be 'yes', right?

Afterschool Naps

0 comments

Somehow, i've acquired a habit of taking a nap right after i come back from school. Which is weird - well, for me it is. And, whenever i wake up it's always time for dinner. haha! it's like magic :P (i'm kidding.)

Anyway, as a result, my sleeping routine or habit or whatever you want to call it, is all messed up. But the weirdest thing about all this, is that although i take my naps everytime (as i told you it became a habit) afterwards, i still feel tired but i do admit i feel more alert? i think that's the word. 

So, I've got a theory. (it's all about my theories is it? :P) Because of my messed up sleeping schedule and i usually sleep at about 11 pm or 12 am (more likely 12) and wakes up at 7:30 every morning, i don't get my 8 hours of sleep. This naps is my body's way to make up for my lack of sleeping hours and therefore, the only solution to avoid these naps is to sleep early and make sure i get the right hours of sleep. 

But knowing myself, i prolly will not do that and keep on sleeping late anyway.

The Day of Stupidity and Delicious Goodies

0 comments
Many things happened last Saturday. 
One of which, is me deleting 33 posts on my blog due to my stupidity. 

So what really happened and why did it happen?
That morning, I was thinking of organising the tags on my blog since there are loads and I want to reduce it. Then i clicked the wrong action and everything went wrong. Afterwards, I immeadiately opened a new tab to search google on how to recover the posts i accidentally deleted. I clicked through a lot of them and found some solutions, which worked for others but unfortunately not on me. It told me about FeedBurner (It is a life saver if you did what i did but since i was not a member then it didn't really help. Register to FeedBurner now! :P) and trying google's cache. 
I searched and tried other ones as well but in the end, i only recovered one post. 


At about 4:30 pm or so, I decided to forget about my blog for a while (it got me really sad...) and get ready for dinner at 6:00 pm at a Chinese Restaurant (Zen City) together with my friends. It was sort of a joint birthday celebration for our two friend. I finished preparing at 5:45 or something. I went for a green sleeveless turtleneck with black and white checkers, a white trousers and a white shoes. (Our dresscode was semi-formal and i think i achieved the semi-formal look). 
I came around to my friend's house (uh... i'm not sure if i could mention her real name so let's just use Len-len) and waited for her to get ready. Len-len and me then walked to the restaurant together. We got there at about 6:30 (late. Tsk tsk tsk), the only customers inside where our friends. The restaurant doesn't open until 6:00 pm. 
We ordered our starters at about 6:40 and main course at about quarter past 7 or something. 
By this time all thoughts about my blog is gone. lol.
After finishing our main course, the adult of the group (haha) ordered a bottle of Asti for us. 
Unfortunately, (*sigh*) me and Len-len have to go before the dessert because we were getting late for the Filipino Mass in church. 

(The Filipino Mass only happens every last saturday of the month so its pretty important for our community and I was to meet up with my family in church so i really had no choice but to go.)

In Honour of Stupid People


In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed to stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.(Shoot, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Fritos -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.(the shoplifter special)?

On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap,"(and that would be how???....)

On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."(but, it's "just" a suggestion).

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."(well...duh, a bit late, huh)!

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."(...and you thought????...) ---It's not just the pudding. lol!

On packaging for a Rowena iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."(but wouldn't this save me more time)?

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine -- "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."(and...I'm taking this because???....)
On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."(as opposed to...what)?


On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious)

On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."(talk about a news flash) --this always makes me laugh when i see it in sainsburys XD

On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."(Step 3: maybe, ooh...fly Delta?)

On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."(I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."(Oh my ..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)


Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity.

Deleted posts burial

0 comments

-----------------------------------
May this be an end of an old chapter in my blogger career and a start of a new and exciting one. 
I may never see or remember all those scribbles and stories i have previously written but i will remember this mistake and shall never repeat it again. 
I shall try to think positively about this unfortunate accident and look forward to more blogs in the future.
(For the record) May those deleted posts rest in peace in the eternal black hole of the world wide web. 
Amen...
-----------------------------
I still feel bad about all those wasted posts and I lost the will to posts and posts...
really... i feel like crying. 

Well, let us mark this post as the end of my first blogger chapter. This is why this post is called deleted posts burial. As they say, things happen because of something and when a window closes a door opens. (did i get those idioms right?) 

Although I am grieving and hating myself for allowing such a stupid mistake, I will try to find the motivation to keep on blogging. *sigh* I've got no spirit at all. 
The only thing that keeps me from continuing is the thought that i have some place to express myself freely without caring of what others think of me. (that's not entirely true coz i do care, in my own way but whatever. lol)

Happy Easter!

lol! I just finished my dinner while watching Grease :) It's a good ol' film and i love Zandie's voice!

Anyway, maybe i should greet all of you a Happy Easter! XD

So yea, HAPPY EASTER ^^.

 

A bit of a dilemma on my part. I've got two coursework due on the day back, i haven't started them. I suppose you know why, right? if you don't, then i suggest you read my last post--the title's a giveaway. 

 

And so, my target for this week is to finish those coursework, do some essays, some revision and do more of revisions! oh yea, i forgot about assignments.

Fortunate Contract - Chapter 1 "Deal"

0 comments

Chapter 1 - "Deal"

Serena Rainey sat on a window sit contemplating the documents before her. This is it, there’s no turning back. Once she decided to sign this paper she’ll be in a 3 year marriage contract with her childhood friend – our resident rumoured player.

“Deal?” Jerick Foreman asked, holding his hands out to Serena.

Serena looked at Jerick and back to the papers in her hands. “Deal.”

The waitress came with their orders, sundae for Serena and coffee for Jerick. She winked at Jerick as she placed his coffee on the table, sliding a tissue with her number in the process. Jerick smiled at her and gave her a nod as thanks. He’ll call her tonight to pass some time. Serena didn’t miss a bit of their unspoken conversation and smiled to herself.

“Here.” Jerick said, passing Serena an envelope. “All the necessary arrangements are in there.”

Serena curiously took the envelope from Jerick’s hands and took the papers inside. “Thanks”

She skimmed through the papers while Jerick looked outside, smiling when he saw their parent’s hired paparazzi taking pictures. They made sure that the guy has a good view on them but not on what they’re doing.

Serena put the papers down the table, “So... the wedding a month from now huh?”

“I’m sorry, I know it’s a rush but we can’t do anything. It’s all been decided by our parent’s and it’ll be good for the business.”

Serena sighed and mouthed a spoonful of ice cream. “heh! You never change do you?” Jerick teased.

“What?” Sarah asked, irritated. She knew it wasn’t Jerick’s fault but she can’t help thinking that their parent’s got them.

“You always eat ice cream when you’re in a mood.”

Serena ignored him, “This was their plan all along! Sending those stupid marriage proposals and blind dates every month”

Jerick stifled a laugh as Serena ate another spoonful. “Anyway, can’t we go to one of our resorts in Thailand instead?” she asked, trying to change the subject.

“Don’t you like Europe?”

“No, I’ve been there quite a lot and it’s a great place. I just want to have a change of scenery... that kind of thing.”

Jerick took a sip from his coffee. Serena thought he was going to one of his moods and quickly took her idea back “Well, if you don’t want to... I don’t mind. I can settle with good ol’ Europe and bore my mind off.”

Jerick raised his eyebrows and smirked at his fiancée-in-name’s sarcasm and gave in. “Thailand it is.”

________________________________________

AN: Heyo! so this is another story by me. It's not finished yet and I reckon it'll be a bit long. Well, me being me, i'll probably loose the urge to write at some point. Thus, i don't have any plans on putting this up in fictionpress.com for the time being (i really don't want this story to be like MA and be stalled indefinitely). Also, this is a very rough draft. Tell me if you spot something wrong or if you saw something you can't understand or seemed vague. I'll try to polish and edit it :)
