My roommates and I went to Manila International Book Fair today. We went to The Feast mass first (and it was sooo awesome) so we arrived at SMX Convention around 2 PM.
I was certain that I’ll buy The Battle of the Labyrinth to complete my Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children sequel, Hollow City, but then I saw a lot of copy of John Green’s books so I had some second thoughts. I really want to read Looking for Alaska but NBS don’t have any copy of it except for the boxed set. I think I picked up around 10 books but decided to buy the two Rick Riordan books. I went to Fully Booked’s booth to try my luck, and voila! I found a copy of Looking for Alaska.
I’m about to go outside when I saw a paperback copy of House of Hades. But the line to the cashier’s really long and I think my money wasn’t enough so I decided to just buy it next time. Besides, I have read it already.
My first MIBF experience was hella tiring but fun as well. I’m planning to come back next year and hopefully I could buy every book I’ve been aching to read ever since.

“There are two types of waiting. There’s the waiting you do for something you know is coming, sooner or later—like waiting for the 6:28 train, or the school bus, or a party where a certain handsome boy might be. And then there’s the waiting for something you don’t know is coming. You don’t even know what it is exactly, but you’re hoping for it. You’re imagining it and living your life for it. That’s the kind of waiting that makes a fist in your heart.”

There are times that I just feel sad and tired at the same time so I let myself be sad. And right now I can’t think of anything to make myself happy but I’m hoping I’ll feel okay when I wake up tomorrow morning. But I really feel sad right now and I’m scared and I don’t know what to do I haven’t felt this for  a long time. I really want to cry right now but I can’t since my roommates are already here and I don’t know what to say if they’ll ask me why I’m crying.

More on Jomaleen’s 18th.

Reblogged from dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist—the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye—which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself.

As we all know, the UP Pep Squad was defeated by NU this year, but it was well deserved. NU put up a great fight, their performance was flawless and everyone knows that. But reading this made me more proud of UP Pep Squad and the isko’s/iska’s who watched the competition live.

I am an LGBTQ ally and I’m proud of it.

What they did showed how dedicated the UP community is in promoting equality, not just in gender but also in different perspectives. It’s an ancient issue that we shouldn’t just disregard. It’s time to open our eyes.

For those who say that 'it's a cheer dance competition, not a rally', well you’re right. But it proved that the UP community has a heart regarding this kind of social issue, and we have the will to bring our advocacy to the nation, even in the most unexpected ways. And if it wasn’t us, who else would do it? We are taught to serve and fight for the nation. So I guess it’s fair to free it from ignorance and hatred.

UP won a greater battle today.

Today was UP Pep Squad’s Pep Rally and of course it was exclusive for UP students only. The line was sooooooo long already when we arrived, but we still waited (even if I was having a headache and we were so hungry at that time) ‘cause I wasn’t able to watch last year. But of course, it was worth the wait.

We weren’t allowed to take videos or even pictures because, as the emcees put it, it’s our ‘little secret’ until the day of CDC itself. I can’t even describe how awesome their routine was. But it outmatched my expectations, so yeah. It’s really awesome and jaw-dropping LOL.

I was also over-whelmed by how the UP community supports our Pep Squad. The way they cheered every time someone flies in the air or did a perfect cartwheel, it felt like the day of the competition already. There were no dead-airs from the crowd all throughout the performance. Every drum beat was corresponded by a yell or a clap. The excitement of the audience was so high, it felt like we’re the ones who’ll compete. And it made me more proud, not just of  how dedicated and talented the pep squad is, but also of how supportive my fellow isko and iska are.

I’m really excited for Sunday. Too bad I won’t be able to watch them live but I’ll be there in front of the telly to cheer for them, like what I did last year. Hehe.

First long exam, first month of first sem and first week of September are already over. I’m still loaded of things I should be doing right now but I’m watching Doctor Who and typing this instead. It’s been a long time since the last time I blogged (my last post was just from my drafts, typed eons ago). I’m thinking of having a new theme but probably I’ll do that later this week.

August had been an awesome month. I learned a lot of things, and right now I feel like I’m really old. I haven’t realized I had decisions that I think only grown ups make. But I’m good. No regrets so far.

And #MySeptemberWish is…

(VIP) ticket for Ed Sheeran’s Concert next year

I’ve been preparing for this ever since I’ve been a fan but I didn’t expect they’ll sell ticket this early and it’s really really breaking my heart. My saving are not enough yet and it hurts so much.

Acads’ really stressing me out but I like being busy so I think it’s a win-win situation. I was also able to start ~*business*~, I’m selling graham balls! Thank goodness it was a hit, they say t’was awesome and addicting haha! I’m not good at making edible things so I’m really flattered about this one yay!

Anyway, it’s ber months already! Christmas season! So excited for the holidays.
