On Turning 25

I'm not too fond of the age 25. Truth be told, it's my hatest age to turn into. Mostly because, once you get to it, there's really no going back. And I know, I know, there's no going back on any age ever. But there's just this finality to 25 that makes me uneasy. It could be because you're already a quarter of a century old, or because (and this is what I usually tell my friends), when you're 25, you're already in your "late twenties". As opposed to if you're 24 and below, and you're in your "early twenties" so you can still act like a kid, or a college student, and people wouldn't mind too much. Of course some of my friends argue and say that 25 actually makes you in your "mid-twenties". But I don't think that makes much of a difference. "Mid" isn't "early". And if it's not early, it's late.

Anyway, my birthday is in September, but already I'm somewhat panicking. Because this is the year. 2009 is when I turn 25. Maybe that's also the reason why I'm so determined to make this year a good one.

So, we've thought of several ways to celebrate: go on a trip abroad, throw a really big party, etc. But here's the winner:

My officemate who was born on the same year as I am saw an advertisement on TV and told us, "I'm turning 25 this year. It's my last chance to join the Binibining Pilipinas Beauty Pageant!"

"Yeah!" I told her. "That's exactly what it's about!"

How do you know just what to say to make everything alright?

You hold me like I'm the one who's precious
I hate to break it to you but its just
The other way around
You can thank your stars all you want but
I'll always be the lucky one

- Rico Blanco, Your Universe

It's Alive!

The rumors aren't true! Surprise

Blogdrive is still up after December 2008, and it looks like it's here to stay!

So comes my dilemma -- do I keep updating this blog, or move back here again, even though I have a new main blog now? Or do I keep updating both of them? Do I mirror entries, or do I use this for a completely different purpose? Or, do I stop updating this one since not a lot of people visit here anyway, and most of my friends already know about the new one?

I still don't know. Although I will admit that this blog still feels like my comfort zone. The new blogs that I have are great, too. But I somehow feel more relaxed blogging here, I don't feel pressured to update right away and I don't feel bad when there aren't any comments to my entries. Plus, I still find it easier to keep track of entries when their Permalink is a number, and not the title.

I guess I'll be weighing all these pros and cons, but the most likely outcome is that I'll be updating both blogs from time to time. After all, even if you exclude this one, I already have about 5 blogs, so what's another one to update, right? All I have to do is figure out which entries belong here and not in the other blogs.

I'm forgetting something.


Hehehe. I forgot to greet you at the beginning of my entry because I was so preoccupied that this blog was still here. I honestly thought it was going to evaporate into thin air, and my entries would be lost forever. Obviously, I'm very relieved that this blog is still intact. Smile

I wonder when I will learn to move on? I can't even let go of this old blog, how will I let go of everything else that I need to let go of?

And if you're going to ask what those things are, well... I'll leave that story for another day. In the meantime, allow me to be overly shallow and feel the happiness that this blog gives me, simply for being here. Smile

I Miss Blogging Here :(

cry *sniff*

Call me sentimental, I don't care. But I really do miss blogging here. I mean, I like my new blog and all. When you get right down to it, it's just different layouts and URLs, but the content is pretty much the same since I'm still the one writing it, but... *sigh* I really really liked this blog.

This blog and I have been through a lot, after all. It's the very first blog I've made, and I'm glad to have been able to keep it for 4 years (Waw tagal na!). Its 4th anniversary is around two weeks from now (May 6). And I miss having numbers as the filename of my entries. I like being able to keep track of the no. of entries I have that way. Of course, I can still change the URLs of the individual posts I have in my new blog to numbers, but it just won't be the same.

*heavy sigh* Change is hard, yeah? Even though I've adjusted to writing entries in my new blog, this one's layout and interface makes me so nostalgic, it reminds me of all those times that I tried to write entries, but couldn't because I was either too emotional, or that I didn't have enough time. I like the colors of this blog better, too. And yes, the new blog's colors are also up to me, but making that an extension of this blog seems weird and somewhat wrong. What's the point of making a new blog when you're just going to do exactly the same thing you did with your old blog, right?

Gah, I didn't realize until now that even from inanimate objects like these, it can be hard to move away from. I was browsing through my old entries earlier, and I felt just like how I do when browsing through my old class pictures. I feel sad that I won't be able to make new memories with the same people, and in the same way. Of course, I can still write in here, just like what I'm doing now, but it feels weird as well, because if I keep posting entries here anyway, then my new main blog would completely lose its purpose. But then...

I really miss this. I miss these colors. I miss this font. I miss changing the colors of some words, and finding which color looks nicest on this background. I miss blogging here. It was really fun. Not just because I was able to write what I want to say, but I really enjoyed the act of blogging itself--logging in, clcking on "Post New Entry", inserting HTML tags to have just the right spacing, and then uploading pictures in
Photobucket and hotlinking them, adjusting their size... Am I crazy to miss these things? I do the same thing with my new blog anyway, but in the new blog, since it's more hi-tech, I don't need to hotlink to Photobucket anymore. And the archiving scheme is different, and I can no longer count the entries simply by looking at the Permalink URL.

It's sad to think that this will all be gone soon. Deep down, I'm still hoping that it's all a lie. In case it is, and this blog still exists after December 2008, even if I have a lot of entries in my new blog by then, I might still come back here. I don't know, I've always been one to prefer the familiar over the unfamiliar, the original over the re-make, the first I've known over the ones I encounter later. I know that's probably unfair to the latter ones, but I can't help it. The feeling is different when I'm blogging here. Somehow, I feel more like myself.

Having a new blog almost makes me feel like I have a new life. But... I don't want a new life. I want this. I want old, comfortable, we've-been-through-thick-and-thin this.

I really miss blogging here.

Who Moved My Cheese?

Due to some rumours* flying about, this blog has moved.

*Of course, when I say "rumours", I mean that thing my friends said about Blogdrive having to close by December 2008. Gah! Surprise It's just horrible! I mean, what about my archives?

As much as I would hate to move or change anything, I'm with the old saying on this one:

"It's better to be safe than sorry."

Hence, I shall force myself (and I guess all of you who read my blog as well) to face the difficulties that come with this, i.e. updating links, salvaging entries that need salvaging, spreading the word about my blog again (because it's just boring when no one reads your entries, right? Tongue), and all that jazz.

If any of you have moved your sites as well, don't forget to tell me where it's at! Hope to see y'all in my new home! Smile

Bakit Gano'n?

Bakit (halos) lahat ng tao 'pag nagka-syota na, kinakalimutan na mga kaibigan nila? 'Yun ba ang friendship, something you settle for habang wala ka pang boyfriend?

At BABARILIN KO ANG KUNG SINONG MAGSABI SA'KIN (or may balak magsabi sa'kin) NG "GANYAN LANG TALAGA. TANGGAPIN MO NA LANG." or some variant of it. Angry

Meron namang mga taong naba-balance ang time nila para sa friends sa boy/girlfriend at sa family 'ah. Anong excuse nung mga taong hindi 'yan ginagawa?!?!?

Do-Ra-Ma v(^o^)v

I finished watching Hana Kimi just last weekend and wanted to write a review about it. It's only now that I found the time to do so. But unfortunately, my mind's not on it anymore. But before I tell you why, I will say what I think about it, first.

(By the way, there aren't too many explanations on the plot, so I guess you have to have an idea on what they're basically about to understand what I'm saying.)

Hana Kimi

I'm going to start off by saying that I'm not a big fan of the whole cross-dressing thing. Sure, it was fun when it was Shakespeare, but after a while it gets overused, and it becomes less and less funny, and therefore less interesting. So I really thought I wouldn't like any more variations of it. But then, almost magically, a copy of Hana Kimi fell into my lap. (I'm not kidding, my friends just gave me a copy. For no reason at all. Aren't they nice?!)

And I have to say, that when there's a good enough reason for it, I guess, them gender-bender plots aren't that bad after all.

What I really like about this drama is how it was able to justify everything that happened--why the lead character (Ashiya) ran away from home and disguised herself as a boy just to see the high-jumper Sano Izumi; why Nakatsu found himself falling deeper and deeper into love with Ashiya; it even justified the title: Hanazakari no Kimitachi e. For You in Full Blossom.

Fluffy goofy funny stuff aside, I honestly think that there's a deeper theme in this drama (which I think is explained by the title). It's not just about some girl with raging hormones who's desperate to see the guy she likes, but more about the craziness and complexities of youth. The character of Nakatsu, for one, has an internal struggle regarding his sexuality, which is something that I guess any student of an all-boys (or all-girls) high school would go through. And Sano Izumi, also has an internal struggle, of overcoming his fear of not being able to meet his father's (or his fans or his own) expectations, to be able to do the thing that he loves the most. As for Ashiya, running away from home to help a person she believes in, it's just like the whole "follow your dream" thing, which I guess, is what people usually say when they want you to enjoy your life to the fullest.

And at the ending [SPOILER ALERT: Please highlight to read], Sano's line was just perfect:

"Next time, I'll be the one to come to you."

Waaahh!!! <3 <3 <3 *kilig kilig* It was just the best thing that he could say to the girl who traveled across the world and disguised herself as a boy just to see him.

I actually think it was a bit ruined when right after that Ashiya said to him "I like you". I mean, in some dramas, there's a need to state that line, but in this one, there really wasn't. I mean hello, she already did so much, wasn't it already obvious that she liked him? So hehe, for me, that scene at the airport ended with Sano's perfect perfect line. *dreamy sigh*

I really had a great time watching this. And not just because of the crazy antics that comes with being in an all boys high school, but because of its ability to tackle so many of the things that teenagers go through -- angst towards parents, sexuality, sibling rivalry, succeeding in a chosen field (whether it's sports or academics), falling in love, making friends, etc. without being so blatant as to have some characters become drug addicts or pregnant or suicidal.

This is the part where I compare it to American teen dramas, and say how redundant all those American TV shows are. I mean, Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights, The OC, One Tree Hill, Dawson's Creek, Popular and whatever else, are basically all about the jocks and the cheerleaders and the geeks and the rich and the poor. I'm sad to say that it's also probably due to these things that the local teen dramas are the same way -- about the popular rich kids and the poor (but smart) kids that they pick on. What the?! I know there are great writers out there, but somehow they choose to limit themselves to these redundant themes. In Hana Kimi, despite having the jocks and artsy-fartsy divided into different dormitories, and having a rift between them, it's clear that they're not fighting for popularity or social status, but completely different things, that may be as worldly as an LCD TV, or as deep as the school's respect for what they do and what they like. But enough angst and comparisons of the East and West. For some reason, all my reviews inevitably come to this, and if I continue, people might get sick of reading my blog. :P

So, instead, I'm going to tell you why despite my having been enamored by Hana Kimi, my excitement was suddenly extinguished because my friend returned to me my copy of

Proposal Daisakusen

And I realized how much I missed it! I really feel that my previous review (if you could call it that, considering how short it is), really didn't give it any justice. But it's mostly because I just can't find the words to describe how much I love this drama.

Honestly, it's just too good, I think that whatever I say won't be enough. It's really weird, because I usually have no problems expressing myself, but I guess once in a while, there are things like this that I just, yeah, proves that I'm a disappointment as a writer. Hehe. Well, I'm not a real writer anyway, but what the hell, let my try again.

Don't get me wrong. I love Hana Kimi to bits. And it's really hard to compare these two (or any other j-drama) because they're very different from each other. What I mean by saying this one distracted me from liking the other one too much is because I can relate to this one more. Other than the obvious fact that the characters in Hana Kimi are younger than I am now, and the characters in Proposal Daisakusen are pretty much in the same stage in their life as I am now (graduated from college and is new to the "working" status, and some friends are getting married), this drama is about coping with change, which, if you know me, you'll know is something that I really have a hard time with.

The problem of the lead character, Ken Iwase, isn't really just losing the girl of his dreams. But letting go of the things he's been used to his whole life, and accepting the inevitable changes that happen to people. Plus, there's the element of time-travel (which I have a big bias for), and the soundtrack is just fantastic.

I could probably go on and on with how nostalgic it makes me, even if I wasn't the manager of our high school's baseball team, and I didn't make friends with my professors, and didn't go to a dorm in college, or even have a childhood best friend whom I'm secretly in love with. But the emotions of the characters, their attitudes towards the things and events that happen, their keeping with their friends' traditions, and everything else...

I'm just so at a loss for words (haha, yeah, this is me being at a loss for words, I've written so much already! :P). Let's just say that I saw this drama a year ago, and saw several dramas after it (including Hana Kimi and part of Nodame), but until now, I'm still so dazed about it.

Wah, if only I could watch J-doramas all day...

My cousin saw me reading a Lawrence Block book at her party.

Cousin: Ate, mahilig ka magbasa ng books?
Me: Oo.
Cousin: Nagbabasa ka ng mga kay Sidney Sheldon?
Me: Hindi.
Cousin: 'Eh 'yung A Walk to Remember, 'yung mga kay Nicholas Sparks, nagbabasa ka?
Me: Hindi.
Cousin: Nabasa mo na 'yung The Secret?
Me: Hindi.
Cousin: Okay...

Yeah. I'm confused with the situation, too.

I am seriously this *insert hand gesture here* close to sending out a search party for my friend.

Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? I'm talking about the people who have the talent of being able to disappear from the face of the planet. I don't know how they do it (or why), but I've already met quite a number of them. Really.

It's so weird. Because you can't say they aren't reliable people. That's actually what makes it bad--because one moment, they're the nicest friends you've ever met, you know, the kind you think will always be there for you? And then the next, you can't see them, you can't communicate with them, as if they've been abducted by aliens. And then they come back after a few months (or days or years, and some don't ever come back at all), acting as if nothing happened, as if you were just talking to them yesterday, as if all the text messages you sent, all the e-mails you wrote, all the phone calls you made, happened just in your head.

And I'm not just talking about guys (because if I were, I'd be inclined to think that maybe they just don't like me). But I have a lot of friends who are girls, who are this way, too.

Take Friend #1, for example. Last year, I planned a summer getaway for our group, and she was the one who helped me from the beginning and until the end of our vacation. She helped me with the reservations, pestered our other friends for their payment, and helped me convince them that we should all get together because it's been a while since we last saw each other.

I was really grateful for her help. I was happy that I had a friend whom I could go with to summer outings, and even help me organize them. But then, a few months after that, she stopped replying to text messages, e-mails, and had even deleted her blog from existence. Nobody we knew had any idea where she went. And short of going to her house (which isn't easy to go to, she lives in the province), all the forms of communication we've tried to be able to contact her, failed.

I don't get it. It wasn't like we had a fight or anything. And maybe she was busy, but is it really that impossible to send a single text message to even just one of us (There are 6 of us in the group, by the way) to say what she's been up to?

And it wasn't the first time she's done it. She actually pops in and out of our lives quite often. It's not really a bad thing. I'm grateful she's still my friend despite her busy schedule, and all the other changes that have happened since we graduated college. But it does make me sad, because I never know when it's the last time we'll see each other before another long period of time. And it's sad too, because eventually there are other events (like birthdays) when we want to see her and catch up, but we have no idea where to find her or contact her.

Friend #2 is just as transient. I knew him from high school, and we've kept in touch throughout college and after it. Normally, I chatted with him in YM, and sometimes we would meet, or talk to each other on the phone. But again, due to our busy schedules (because of work, and other stuff), there would be lapses in our communications. Sometimes just a few weeks, sometimes months. And it didn't bother me at all, because I was just as guilty when it came to "not keeping in touch". I have no right to say that he hasn't been calling me or whatever, because I haven't been calling him either. What upsets me now though, is when I did call him a few months ago, the one who answered the phone (I'm assuming his sister) said that he's already gone to the U.S. Permanently.

What was that?! He never even hinted that he was going. And migrating to the U.S., I'm sure everyone knows, is not exactly something that happens overnight. You have to go through an excruciatingly long process before you can legally get there and get a job, but he never mentioned anything. He never even mentioned the possibility of it. And yeah, sure, organizing your documents and other stuff will make you a busy person, but would you really be that busy to not even say goodbye to your friends?

So, I e-mailed him, and asked him how he was and all that. I didn't even say anything about him not saying goodbye. But to this day, I haven't received his reply. So maybe he changed his e-mail address as well. But, I can't think of a reason why.

Why sever his relations with the people back home? Does he hate us that much? Again, we didn't fight or anything. And maybe I wouldn't be so upset if we were just mere acquaintances, but we are (or were, I guess) actually really close friends. We've known each other for a long time, and I really wouldn't say that our friendship is one of those incidental ones that you forget after a while. It's just weird.

And then I have another friend, Friend #3, who I met a few years ago, and is a blast to hang out with and talk to, and we have a lot of common friends so we saw each other often whenever we had friend get-togethers. Eventually, he started attending less and less of those events, and he said it was because of his work, which is very understandable. People go crazy because of work. I wouldn't blame them if they didn't show up at all the birthday parties and baptisms of our friends' kids and all that. What I can blame them for, though, is not replying to e-mails, and text messages (yes, this is mainly my problem).

Okay, let's say his phone got stolen. So yeah, he wouldn't be able to receive messages on it anymore. But do e-mail addresses ever get stolen?

Well then, let's say his e-mail address was hacked. But is it likely that all of his other internet stuff--Friendster, Multiply, Livejournal, DeviantArt, etc. would get hacked as well? And even if they did, is it that hard to make a new e-mail account to tell people that he got hacked? I haven't changed my e-mail address. And it's so easy to remember. Google my name and you'll find it. You'll probably even find this blog.

Why do they do it? I honestly don't think there's anything more I can do. I'm one of the easiest people to find. Online and off. I haven't changed my address since birth, I've had the same job for 2 years, my phone number hasn't changed since high school, and I hang out in the same places. They absolutely cannot make the excuse that they couldn't reach me. So, the question really is, why won't they?

And in case you think I'm really the one with the problem, well, I would have to tell you that they haven't communicated with my other friends (our common friends) either. Now unless all my other friends are involved in a conspiracy to get me out of their lives, I'd say that the 3 individuals mentioned above really made the choice not to communicate with me.

I don't know. Maybe they want to forget their past and start a new life. But isn't that just a bit unfair to those of us who get left behind? What did I do to hinder them from becoming what they want to be? It's not like I would've told Friend #2 not to go the U.S. I just wish he could've said goodbye. And the same goes for Friends #1 and #3. I mean, I know it's possible, and I'm never going to be able to change how life is, but honestly, it really makes me sad, that there are people like these who come into your life, and then just disappear without telling you anything.

And I'm supposed to just sit here and accept that reality. %$#%$^! It's bad enough that some of us lose our loved ones unexpectedly due to accidents, but some of us have to lose our friends for no reason, too?
