Week 3 of 52

I guess you really have to get pissed to be writing. Nah, not really. It’s bad to live by that saying. Basically it only shows a part of you, the dark part. Anyway, I’m really sorry I’ve missed my weekly deadline and wrote on the wrong day and just to keep things organized, I will write my weekly updates starting this Friday since that is the day I get to have all the time in the world. So here’s how my week went (I wrote them on the back of my DIY desk calendar just to be precise, shit ang dami nito):

15-17 Jan 2013 – I wrote “FIN’s okay”, “INTFILO zzz” and “HUMANBE -____-“; “POLISCI bovring”, “Jho acting *scribble i dont understand*; “INTFILO day 2”, “ayt. HUMANBE :(“, *scribble*, “meet up with 2ne2 minus ports” I dont remember most of the reasons why I wrote these but I have a feeling the day sucked, or nothing happened that was worth blogging. epic fail since the whole point of this blog was to be interesting

18-20 Jan 2013 – “catch up day!”; “effing butt cramps”, “youtube”, “chill” “youtube”, “did nothing”

21-25 Jan 2013 – this was a genuinely fun/ productive week. me and jho were very “pa-bida” in tred. my friends are having a good time together – i still hope we could stop being confined in our own world and being anti-social and just  STEP UP (word of the week). also, i would like to thank i have shared my negative energy with gab to janneal so somehow, i am able to cope with his *insert negative adjective here* being, i would also like to thank jho because she introduces http://markandanfangel.com to me and made me read “12 new years resolution” something like that and really motivated me. she always motivates and sees the best in me. i love her. i also took a psychology test about my attention span and will post results some other time – heads up, results were not good lol. met up with ports and it was a bit shaky. dunno why. i kept thinking of stuff to say. not the usual me. went to the bible museum. got crawled on by a roach. infilo’s mindfucking me. finally having a bit of fun in humanbe. i would like to think i was funny during the presentation. made some friends there when jaja was absent. got some of my crushes’ attention – well, we made eye contact (guy from humalit and girl from humabeh). might got to palawan/benguet for polisci!!!!

26-28 Jan 2012 – unusual weekend. went to laneway festival. not! went to school on friday for the forum but really didn’t stay for that. we just signed up then ate. had fun with dream team, good vibes. saturday we went to lola’s for lunch. pretty boring than the usual visit there. love my family and relatives though-dont get me wrong. sunday we watched les mis here at home. i want to write a review!!! i hope i can!!! *mental note to write about it*

And now im updating my blog since it’s probably more important (or makes more sense) to do it rather than a 3-page reflection paper on my trip to the bible museum *sigh*. I’ll be back on Friday to make things back to schedule (i pronounce that as “sheduwool” now because im part brit. mabuhay pilipinas!!)

I guess i need to fly away and start that reflection now *flies*

Week 2 of 52

and just like that, 50 more weeks to go until 2014. gross. i actually wrote some part of this 2 days ago but hey, it’s still part of the week so everything is still relevant

9 Jan 12 Wed – more youtube videos
10 Jan 12 Thurs – back to fucking school. i didnt attend classes because i was a fucking bad arse. just kidding, i fucking adjusted.
11 Jan 12 Fri – i havent really explained why i was so happy. i decided to explain because you might be thinking im on something that’s making me happy for no reason or because i see things that shouldn’t be seen like rainbows and butterflies and unicorns. if you still dont get me, yes, im talking about you accusing me for doing drugs. i dont. i didnt explain then because it would turn out to be an i-should-appreciate-the-little-things-im-so-enlightened kind of post which kind of spirals down to an emo blog post hence transiting happiness into sadness.i dont want to ruin the moment. honestly i haven’t done anything the whole day rather than watching videos on youtube and eating lots and lots of savory food – the pesto bread from pan de manila, snr pizza and chicken empanada from starbucks. ughhhhhhhh i love cheese!!! see how easy i am to please – i recently discovered Grace Helbig and she is the dog’s bollocks! i will get deeper into her (i am aware of how dirty that translates) maybe some other time because my girl G deserves one whole post in my blog. i love her. such an inspiration. i will put my feelings for her it into writing. i will, i promise.

– mentally challenging myself to write happier notes.

12-13 Jan 12 Sat – Sun – the usual weekends. not too boring, not too fun. watched more youtube videos. weather’s been chill (literally) recently, which is a good thing.

14 Jan 12 Mon – just the usual first day. nothing much. slow and steady Monica, slow and steady. i also wrote something about dreams and all the bittersweet feelings that come with it. watch out for the post soon – wow i talk like i have readers that have to be updated and teased for upcoming blog posts haha

just a side note: i want to talk about having gojocco as my infilo prof. i know i may regret saying this at some point this term but for now, i am a bit excited because from what ive heard, he is a really interesting prof. havent met anyone regretting to get him as a teacher – well, some partially did because they failed but they did admit learning a thing or two from him. one of my blockmates who had him last term actually encouraged us to pursue (meaning not dropping the subject) getting the course (subject) he will also sit in for the rest of the term because he’s stupid. nah, because that was how enlightened he is with the prof that if he had another chance to cross paths with him again, which he did, he will grab that chance in the balls and say “you’re mine”. there is a reason (which i will never know the answer to) why the profs shuffled and i magically got him. i dreaded (and still am) getting him so much. i will attend my first class with him on tomorrow. i hope i do good. i really hope i dont regret saying this. please.

here’s a song so this post has visuals (kind of) and soul hahaha

A PAT ON THE BACK

i feel really really happy right now – the good kind or like the hyped kind, i don’t really know it just feels good. so pumped like a wheel that’s ready to roll. i usually really am lonely – not when im around people but when im alone – especially when i write because duh, i write when im alone (or is it ‘im alone when i write?’) – who the hell would want to write within the presence of someone meticulously eyeing out your swagger moves. this is very rare for me to write about being happy. i really think i should do this more often. oh, and what’s being happy without a little cussing!!! fuck y’all!!!! wahoooooo!!!

Week 1 of 52

So this is week 1 of approximately 52 weeks of year 2013:

1 Jan 2013, Tues – whilst waiting for the clock to tick 12 am so we can crack up some fireworks and eat media noche, I decided to watch youtube videos to kill time. I started with Jenna Marbles then Kingsley then Tyler Oakley then I saw his video “Twin Twinks Learn Gay Slang”. I would really click the video judging from the title because I LOVE twins then I saw the tumbnail that they looked cute then boom. That is where my youtube obsession started. Also, we went to lola’s house for lunch during the day.

2-7 Jan 2013 – from what I remember, I didn’t go out during the week and all I did was watch videos, sleep, eat, tv, watch more videos. I haven’t even watched all of their videos but it already took me days. I don’t think I’d be able to watch them all since I’ll be going back to school. I have watched most of them though, the interesting ones at least. So I think I’m good. I also shared my discovery to my brother. He is hooked, but not as hooked as I am. Damn, I wish my life was as interesting as the youtubers’.

– I also learnt that sea salt spray could possibly be the solution for my unruly hair. I have yet to try it.

I just want to put it out there that I have discovered them on the eve of Jan. 1, 2013 and to those who discovered them on Jan. 2 or later, I saw them first! Ha! They are too beautiful to be discovered. Stay on youtube please? Don’t be THAT famous, not just yet. The clique:

I love them. I want to descibe them one by one but I’m getting lazy and I might not be able to stop. They’re all from England (except Caspar, he’s from South Africa but he moved out to UK this year so) and they’ve become really good friends all because of youtube. I would like to believe that I am slowly adapting their accents lol. You know when people only show like a good part of themselves while filming? They’re not. I’m not being biased or anything but I think they all are genuinely good people. They’re not the only ones in the UK to be popular on youtube but they’re my favourites, and I think they’re the ones who really hang out regularly and make a lot of collaborations with each other. Like what real groups of friends do. Ughhhhhhh, I want to be friends with them so bad!!!!!! Oh, and they get paid making youtube videos. I have this crazy idea to start a channel too since not many Filipinos are popular on youtube. All I need is guts, creativity and a little bit of cheekiness. I don’t think I’d be able to reach that level though. But hey, who knows, by some stroke of improbable luck (blessing), I’d be able to collaborate with one of them, could be better with all of them AHHHHHHHHHH!!!

ps: id like to apologize for the crappy photos. they’re supposed to be gifs. idk what happened. they didn’t give justice to their pretty-ness

*man, I have to get used to writing 2012 2013.

I’m on my way up

So it’s a new year, a new reason to be productive. I hope this year would be an active year for my blog. Clearly, no one reads monicatot so I will use it as a journal/diary to keep memories, ideas, ramblings and everything in between. I will try my very best to keep this updated by writing weekly – well, I won’t limit my writing to that schedule of course, I will write whenever I feel like it but I am expected to come up with an update which I will call “Week _ of 52” which basically consists of updates of happenings during my week for the lot of 2013.

My last year sucked and I do hope I find something interesting to do this year because I really felt such a crap last year. I didn’t enjoy anything. I was a complete bum. I don’t want to look back on 2013 say it was crap too because 1.) Nothing is more unfortunate than to have two crap years in a row 2.) I could have done something about it 3.) I (think) learned my lesson that it is my fault if I have a crappy year. Hopefully, by the time I write my opening post for the year next year, I would feel a tad bit more confident than this one.

I don’t want to expect anything this year. I would rather go with the flow so whatever comes my way (I hope it’s a good one), I will accept it. I’m challenging myself to be the best version of what I could be.

I will be cheesy and end my post with:
