sentenaryo daw ipagdiwang. ayan. yay.


bakit ba tuwing wala akong pera saka ako nagkaka-urge na bumili nang kung anu-ano? kesyo gusto ng bagong cell phone, ng bago at mas maliit na laptop, ng iPod touch, ng pen tablet, ng bago at mas malaking USB (na naman), ng digital SLR, etc etc

hala sige gutumin mo sarili mo kate. sige.


inflation at 11.4 percent in june. ibig sabihin ata kung dati P100 lang ang isang bagay, ngayong P111.4 na. maryosep. hmmm. world oil at $145. peso back at P45:$1. minsan nananaginip na ako ng business graphs e.

buti wala akong kotse.

sana me dollar ako na pwedeng palitan.

granted, i’d never really been thin, much less be the least figure-conscious, but COME ON, it’s ridiculous, how one could wake up one morning and NOT FIT INTO 75 percent of all existing, newly laundered jeans. seriously.

maybe if i could swear off cigs, i could swear off half my rice consumption. or, stop with the sodas, or something. just something.

i need to run in the mornings. it’s not enough running until lungs drop on tuesday nights. i miss basketball and my old high school lungs and regular training (and lean arms, yeah). i miss having to wake up really early to morning rounds around a gym. teammates, a coach, scrimmage.

or maybe i could learn a new sport. like tennis. tennis is nice. and um i think painful also but nice. or a swimming regimen? mejo hassle lang, but why not?

i think i’m too sedentary.

maybe i should stop sending my laundry out too often for starters. maybe yun na muna.

the long and winding valentine’s post

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

first off, hope you all had a fantabulous valentine’s day celeb, single or no :)

spent better part of last night/early morning at the University Student Council-sponsored Friday edition of this year’s (centennial) UP Fair. less than stellar band line up, i admit, but nothing beats Sunken Garden grass and the company of friends, old and new. feels a lot like coming home =)

it’s overwhelming actually, walking around the booths, inhaling all that is familiar - the mixed scents of grass, cigarettes and isaw and other inihaws everywhere - and getting all these calls and hugs from people i once knew. old friends and orgmates i hadn’t seen in a while, hugged in a while. it’s absolutely amazing. (”ate kate?” my girlfriend would rib me every now and then. what could i do, they were kids once, you know.) trust the UP fair to be a somewhat venue for catching up. heh. plus: PERYA! haha.
