you walk around the city and you try to feel christmas but it's just not there. perhaps when humanity thought that god was dead, they buried christmas with her/him. maybe chrismas is just late...

witness the days when tradition loses its soul - the collapse of meaning. isn't everything just a routine nowadays - a mere remembrance of an annual task?

holidays are for the children. once you realize how the world works, you start to lose all the powers you thought you had when you were younger. life itself becomes alienating.

perhaps there's such a thing as "cultural decay". it's a scary thought - the death of meaning in all the things that we do.

life is pathetic
living in a modern world
heads shoved up the ass

let's paint the town red
take the war into the streets
be like animals

all is meaningless
all existence is denied
all because of us

pathetic is god
creating a world at night
blind followers die

PAST-ing [23 Nov 2005|11:21pm]
[ mood | calm ]

history is something that i dread. it's one of those things that i can't figure out. how can you recreate something in the past while you go on with your life trying to live it a day at a time all while thinking of what will happen a year from now. what gives? we human beings rarely learn from our mistakes.

in my PI100 class, we are still arguing about rizal and his supposed place in history. in the sciences (hard or social) we are taught about the works of the founders. we have to think critically. that almost always mean that we must be ready to argue and debate over someone's idea. what gives? where's unity in this context if we continue to bash one another? there's a million scientists fighting one another for fame and recognition as of press time.

in my head there's a really loud voice telling me that we need change in this world. but how? we stick to our ideas of safety and comfort in the expense of reality. it's just that i think that there's this really big disaster waiting to happen.

anyway, there's just this fear that i feel. a "kutob" (hunch) that i can't suppress no matter how hard i try.

RAH! RAH! RAH! [22 Nov 2005|07:43pm]
[ mood | amused ]

i like what serj tankian said when he received the award for system of a down in the european music award... "civilization is a failure... we should now decide what to do next..." booyah!

anyway, i hope that i will be the first one to use this term "pop environmentalism". i've been thinking about this for a long time now, really. pop environmentalism is a process where one equates planting trees and saving the world.

[formula:]
planting "x" number of "exotic" trees x land area = saved planet

though i haven't really figured out how to educate all the people in the world to give them a new worldview, i think that the popular notion of planting trees isn't enough to save us all from destruction. we need change now and time is running out, if i may add.

if we don't act now, we're all going to be f*cked until are asses are blue and gray.

we don't need greater knowledge to save our planet. we only need a really working common sense.

thank you.

oh, me! [17 Nov 2005|05:45pm]

i realized how stupid my schedule is. mondays and thursdays are MST (math/sci.tech.) days for me. i get to study math and geology during this days. boring. luckily, i am the chatty kind that can talk to my classmates and pester them with random questions like "what college are you from?" and then i'll go "really?" and the chatting begins there.

tomorrow, i'll only have one class which if fun since i can go home early to watch our TRIGUN dvds. it's a really cool series but not cool enough to dislodge COWBOY BEBOP on the number one spot in my list. still... LOVE & PEACE!!! LOVE & PEACE!!! *lather, rinse, repeat*

anyway, i decided not to get the refund for my PanPil17. this morning, i went to the office of the university registrar (naks! kumpleto!) and got really, really annoyed. i asked them politely for the procedures for the refund and the cashier person replied in a really, really, really bad manner. why are people so rude nowadays? anyway, i hope that my P900 will be added to UP's budget for mental-health checkups. f*cking government employees...

still, this day was a really good day with me being able to stay awake during class hours! i can't believe how sleepy i get nowadays.

always remember... this land was built with... LOVE & PEACE!!! LOVE & PEACE!!! LOVE & PEACE!!! LOVE & PEACE!!! LOVE & PEACE!!! *lather, rinse, repeat*

relationships are overrated [16 Nov 2005|05:03pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

this afternoon, my friend started to share in class about her relationship. it made me cringe. i think relationships are overrated. if i had the chance today, i'd stay single. being single rocks, especially if you are in a crappy relationship. (note: this does not mean that i am in a really, really crappy relationship)

in a relationship, you have to deal with lots of things and few relationships are good. the mere thought of having, at least, a good relationship is a dream for a lot of people. also, the mere thought of giving almost everything to a person gives me the shivers. that never really happens. so, do what i do nowadays, be happy and act as single as possible (if you're in a relationship. but don't cheat. that's baad.).

i am now 20 and i am starting to let go of all the sweet and dreamy notions about relationships i had before. i guess the "kilig" feeling left me. the thought of sharing your life with someone is scary. to all singles out there, think twice before entering a relationship. relationships are overrated. maybe i am maturing. maybe i am only getting bitter. maybe i am happy or maybe i ceased to be a few months ago. but no matter my reason, do think twice you single person that might be reading this.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE OVERRATED!!! find true peace and happiness and love alone. you won't regret it.

feeling trapped in the 19th century and other stories [15 Nov 2005|04:41pm]
[ mood | blank ]

if you were to enter my PI100 class, you hear a different kind of tagalog language. i used "tagalog" because it is "tagalog" in the strictest sense. if it was "filipino" he was using, i wouldn't complain since terms would be easier to understand - but he was using straight and archaic tagalog. it was like living out the world of crisostomo ibarra in the classroom. nothing really bad, if you ask me. it just sound really silly.

anyway, my professor's a short man with a really "big guy" aura around him. from the first time i saw him, i knew he was the serious type. he doesn't even say "good morning" before starting the class. he just walks up to his desk and goes asking questions. my classmates think he's still a virgin that's why he's like that. i think he's like that because he feels bad for being called a virgin every class.

on the other hand, my friend mae is starting to bother me. whenever i talk about my relationship about girlfriend, she starts to inject a joke about girlfriend's ex. which is not funny most of the time. it's just freaky and i have to blurt it out.

anyway, potter-mania hits manila again tomorrow. i don't know if i should be excited or not because i really think that rowling should finish the books as soon possble. the stories are not that good anymore since book five. thank god there's only one book left for her to write. but then again, maybe i just lost interest in harry. tsk.

FX ride [14 Nov 2005|05:51pm]
[ mood | amused ]

though not really horrible, the fx ride i had this morning was something else. for almost 30 minutes the music the driver and his wife (who were both dressed in white *shivers*) played were all christian praise music. i looked at the owner's collection of tapes and there were boxes of christian praise music on his vehicle. the ride was a crucifix short of a divine experience. come to think of it, he may be playing that kind of music to distract god while he blasted his was through pedestrians and ploughed the road. silly human being.

this afternoon, i also took a math diagnostic test. yes, i am taking math2 which is by definition "practical" math. to my surprise, there were two items still looking for the answer to one of the world's greatest mystery... the value of "X". come on, man! if i am going to buy eggs in real life, i don't go "let "X" be the value of the eggs and multiply it by 12 to know its price". either i am being silly here or i just f*cking hate math in school.

the highlight of my day is that i was informed that i can get a refund for the subject i cancelled. booyah! though my ankle is killing me now, the thought of getting 900 back takes away the all the pain.

Watching the world with a hint of amusement [13 Nov 2005|04:51pm]
[ mood | calm ]

There’s nothing really special about what I am going to write because most of us actually witnessed, one way or another, the events I am going to narrate.

As a requirement of our course, we needed to go to the field for more or less a semester. That means having to spend a lot of time with people you barely know. The experience was more or less like a Big Brother season sans the camera and the routine dancing every now and then. It’s funny how you get to know the real attitude and personality of people in the field.

Though my experiences were more or less pleasant, there were just some things that I didn’t really understand. Of course, different work habits mean trouble but I wouldn’t expound on that since a great number of us has our own share of work related conflict. I will write about the things that really piss me off.

The use of dishwashing liquid - it amazes me how some people can waste a pack of dishwashing liquid a week. It was a horrible sight when I saw people actually smothering the sponge with dishwashing liquid. Worse, they do that every 5 plates and they were using our group’s dishwashing liquid. It was a rather despicable display of behavior. Don’t they watch television commercials? What happened to the “isang patak, kaya and ‘sang katutak” tagline?

Taking an hour-long bath – I have nothing against taking a really long and relaxing bath. But in a place where 15 people are expected to share a single bathroom - doesn’t that entail that the one using the comfort room must use some discretion when taking a bath? I mean, I saw people and I experienced waiting in line just to take a dump. Also, because of those people who take leisurely baths like they own the bathroom a great number of individuals are robbed of their rights for that sanctuary. There were 4 inconsiderate people and that means an accumulated worth of, more or less, 4 bathing hours. To make the long story short, some of us went with our day without taking a bath.

Clogged sinks – some people are just plain idiots. I mean, they throw everything in the sink when they are cooking or washing the dishes. A great number of people from my batch successfully clogged sinks during our entire stay in the field. How pitiful.

Though there are still a lot of things to share, the thing that bothers me is that you are more or less powerless when faced with these kind of people. It’s like trying to be sane in a madhouse. I could’ve made a lot of enemies last semester, but I decided to just fix sink and hide our group’s dishwashing liquid. I could’ve told them how stupid they are sometime, but that would mean me killing the dumbest one and writing my message using his or her entrails and blood just to drive my point home.

Come to think of it now, my experience was more like Survivor rather than Big Brother. Still, these events build character.

downloading madness... [12 Nov 2005|11:31pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

ok, i just wrote an entry a couple of minutes ago but here i am writing again since i am still downloading 2 songs.

first of all, i just want to comment about photoediting. in the edited photos you look nice (if not a bit too smooth for a normal human being). nothing's really bad with looking good, right? it's just that if people see you in "real" life, they see someone different. you have pimples, scars, birthmarks, et cetera erased with photoediting that, in turn, removes all the humanity in you. my point? photoediting is nice if you still look human in the photo. plus, magazine and models ruin people's lives.

next, selling-out. there's nothing really wrong with gaining popularity, fame, and fortune. it's just that a lot of people lower the standards their craft so much that it actually becomes dumb, pieces of shit for mass consumption. my point? nothing, really.

next, it may still hold true that we are still our worst enemy. lots of people complain about other people without actually looking at themselves. my point? take a look in the mirror and get a clue.

next, the best way to stop smoking is to be with non-smokers. just make sure that the non-smoking crowd you got have strong personalities and will never ever be influenced by you.

next, cooking is probably one of the best things in life. the feeling of actually being able to eat what you cooked is rewarding.

next, i am still listening to NIRVANA and PEARL JAM. i don't know why.

next, i have a theory why cheesy love songs last longer than, say, rock or metal songs. i believe that it's because you can fall in love anytime again and again and actually be happy. on the other hand, songs that is whine-induced and are full of either hatred and sex get old fast since we have to admit that we really stop complaining after some time and because sex becomes overated after the 10th time you do it.

anyway, only a few percent left so i'll probably save this before i ran out of net card.

I have a bad feeling about this... [12 Nov 2005|10:49pm]
[ mood | amused ]

Yesterday, I met a friend of mine who's a graduate in Anthro. She's one of those who graduated with honors and stuff. The funny thing is that she is now taking pre-med. subjects. "For med. school?" i asked, and she only told me that she's just doing it to get out of the country.

Another friend of mine, who's also a graduate in Anthro, told me that she is now a bum since she quit working for a certain government agency. She told me that her monthly salary was 10K (overtime pay included).

In my head... "Why the f*ck are you telling me these things?"

Is this a sign?

Truth be told, I am kinda wondering every night about my future place in society.

Will I be a corporate slave?

Are we that f*cked up as a nation?

Abangan bukas...

Check this out. [23 Oct 2005|10:05pm]
[ mood | bored ]

I now have SEVEN (7) Dream Theater albums. I love this band and the fact that I have most of their albums makes me flip. Can you imagine it? SEVEN! SEVEN ALBUMS! Just don't ask me how I acquired them.

Anyway, I am trying to wake up really early so to prepare my mind and body for this coming sem. I also have to wake up so I can let my dog out the house so he can do the peeing and other stuff there.

On the other hand, it's almost a month now since my detachment from the world. Yup, no news whatsoever. If you ask me what's going on here I'll just go "HUH?!". Never felt better though. News makes the world seem unbearable.

My PS2 and discman are breaking down due to excessive usage. Ugh.

About my dog: I am currently trying to make him eat since he is getting thinner and thinner. Everything's still ok.

Lovelife(?)[thought you left her? haha. i know.]: I still think my girlfriend looks like Reese Witherspoon.

Life's still good. Gotta read Jonathan Strange some more since I'm stuck in page 45. The story's good but it makes me sleepy...

Dreamers run wild and free. [21 Oct 2005|01:00pm]
[ mood | amused ]

Your Birthdate: August 11

Your birth on the 11th day of the month makes you something of a dreamer and an idealist.
You work well with people because you know how to use persuasion rather than force.
There is a strong spiritual side to your nature, and you may have intuitive qualities inherent in your make up, too.

You are very aware and sensitive, though often temperamental.
Although you have a good mind and you are very analytical, you may not be comfortable in the business world.
You are definitely creative and this influence tends to make you more of a dreamer than a doer.

They call you sticky fingers for a reason!

Something's Always Wrong
Toad the Wet Sprocket

Another day I call and never speak
And you would say nothing’s changed at all
And I can’t feel much hope for anything
If I won’t be there to catch you when you fall

Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces
In between
We always say
It won’t be long
But something’s always wrong

Another game of putting things aside
As if we’ll come back to them sometime
A brace of hope
A pride of innocence
And you would say something has gone wrong

Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces
In between
We always say
It won’t be long
But something’s always wrong

Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces
In between
We always say
It won’t be long
But something’s always wrong
