By the time I'm 25

Signs of quarter life crisis have started manifesting recently, which means I'm getting old and I'm getting sad. I really want that to change, at least the getting sad part since I can no longer do anything about my age.

I was told that making a to-do list is depressing as it will only make you sad if you don't accomplish them. But dreaming is not that bad and setting goals to achieve is actually a good start off point for everyone. Someone advised me that to set goals one must write it on either past tense or present perfect, saying that by that time it is already finished or already in process so that there is a feel of accomplishment and positive thinking, which is good unlike if you write your goals on a future tense its as if you are setting things that will burden you in the future.

So here are the 25 things that happened by the time I'm 25:

1. I have already gone to dates.
2. I have a boyfriend.
3. I already know how to drive.
4. I already have 6 digits worth of savings in my bank account.
5. I have been to at least 5 places in the Philippines I have never been to (i.e. la union, pinatubo, zambales, cebu, sagada, etc)
6. I went to Ilocos alone.
7. I have gone surfing.
8. I have gone wakeboarding.
9. I have been to a foreign country where I don't need to apply for visa.
10. I have been to a foreign country where I have to apply for visa.
11. I have finished reading all the books (theory, literature, essay compilation, photography, etc.) I have acquired since 2006.
12. I am already teaching.
13. I already have a thesis topic in mind that I am working on.
14. I have a serious and active on-line portfolio.
15. I have submitted an entry for a national workshop.
16. I have auditioned for a role on a play/ an independent film.
17. I have recorded (as in personal recording) ten songs that I can sing and play in the guitar.
18. I know how to cook Tom Yum
19. I know how to cook Pho.
20. I have been regularly exercising, either jogging or wall climbing at TS.
21. I have been maintaining my natural waves.
22. I have volunteered to serve in orphanages in Metro Manila.
23. I have been sent to volunteer for the AAP program of the UPLB Pahinungod.
24. I have a good health.
25. I am happy.

Mahal kita e.

Kaso ano 'to? Anong ginagawa mo? Pinapahirapan mo lang ang sarili mo, ako, kaming lahat. Nahihirapan na tayong lahat!

Pero ang masakit nun, hindi naman kita maiiwan e. Kasi sa'to ako pinanganak at nabuhay. Kung aalis man ako sa'yo pa rin nakatatak ang pagkatao ko. Hindi naman ako pwede magpaka-manhid habang buhay. Pero hirap na hirap na 'ko, kami, tayo! Hirap na tayo!

Argh! Bakit ba ganito sa Pilipinas?

Mag-da-drive ako hanggang buwan

quoting the people from peyups.com.

Mukha namang apt itong title na ito kung gusto natin ipangalan ang isang International Space Station sa bandang tumatak sa dekada nobenta hindi ba? Kaya tignan at basahin ang mga nakasulat in bold at bumoto na.

Paabutin sa buwan at gawing international ang pangalang Eraserheads!

Eto trip trip lang. NASA has entered for public polling the naming of NODE 3 ng International Space Station. There are four options (Earthrise, Legacy, Serenity and Venture) but there is also a WRITE IN option. Ginamit ito nung komedyanteng si Stephen Colbert kaya mapapansin niyo Colbert yung number one write-in suggestion. Hahaha

Now we have this knack for winning online polls sa mga beauty contest and in campaigning for the New 7 Wonders. Ngayon, tingnan natin kung mamomobilize natin ang mga Eraserheads fans to have part of the space station named Eraserheads para international talaga ang dating ng International Space Station.

Go to this site:

http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/name_ISS/index.html

Write ERASERHEADS sa write-in suggestion. 400,000 plus pa lang ang bumoboto. We can vote once a day up to March 20, 2009.


So there. Not actually forcing you but atleast we can see if we have the chance to name an International space station after the  Eraserheads.

Are you an Eheads Fan?

Fine Time at Eraserheads: The Final Set

Last Night was the happiest night of 2009 so far.

August 30, 2008 when we attended Ultraelectromagnetic Night, and that night was my happiest night of 2008.

The barkadang barikada ng VIP struck back last night. I have office during Saturday and my brother had a practical exam that lasted until 2pm. We met at Katipunan. The gang last concert lack 2 people, Bricci did not attend and Rap got a VIP pass (ikaw na!). So last night was the night shared by Me, Jason, Patty, Hannah and Karla (and you guys though younger than me and though I never see you regularly, except for my brother, are now officially special).

Memorable thing before the concert was that Raimund took a picture of the early comers on the line (hehehe), so I guess we're part of his pictures.

We got in at around 4:30 or 5. We were bored and people are starting to mark their positions (may territoriality sa concert) even at the Gold A. That was the time we decided that we will not move. Wala nang pwedeng magCR! And we really defended our territory until the end. So when we really got bored and had nothing much to talk about while waiting, we played cards. We had two rounds of ungguyan and attempted a round of lucky 9.

When the sun started to set, we were already excited. Just want to skip the part of VJs introduction.

When they showed the Eheads documentary I had extreme goosebumps esp. when they showed the clip of Huling El Bimbo winning in the MTV Music Awards. It was nostalgic. I remember that day I was watching it on television. When the presentor announced Eraserheads back then I was all teary-eyed and jumping and screeming all at the same time (I was young back then). The alphabet down was pretty cool too... and stopping at the letter e is cool as well.

First set was good. At the end of the set I didn't realize that they finished the whole set. Hearing Marcus and Raymund sing was great. We wanted to hear Buddy sing too but he didn't. But it was ok.

Second set was great. I felt all the love despite the mellow and and acoustic versions of their first songs. I LOOOOOOOVE that set. And Marcus is officially the BEST guitarist in the Philippines.

Third set was love! Their tribute to Francis M. and the last set. Best version of Alapaap ever. When they played Minsan my night was officially complete. Huling El Bimbo gave me the goosebumps and left me teary eyed as well. This is the last of it.

When they were all hand in hand after El Bimbo I thought that they would actually give in to the "group hug" request. But group hug or no group hug I believe that the night is all about their love for the music, and we all felt the love and we all felt that last night they were one, they were the 90's band that we all love. When they all bowed to the crowd it was officially over.

People went rushing to the exit. We didn't, mahirap umalis pag galing ka sa barikada. We had to wait for the people to leave so there will be room for us. Then we saw that Buddy went to the stage, then Raimund. Then Raimund said "Gusto niyo pa?" we said yes of course. He then followed, "Tawagin niyo si Marcus" then we cheered for Marcus, then Raims added "Tawagin niyon si Ely," and we cheered for Ely. Ely went up the stage, and the three convened. And Raimund asked us to call Marcus again so we called him again. And when Markus went to the stage we were so happy already. Raimund announced "hindi to kasama sa Set List ah." Ely followed with "Here's three for the road." I was so happy that I thought wow parang gig lang.

And true enough their energy and the love that they have were parang gig lang. The big MOA concert grounds turned into a small space that they have filled us all with love. They played Sembreak, Ligaya and for the last time the memorable Toyang. And even though we could only see 2 inches of Ely, Marcus, Buddy and Raimund, I felt that they were near, I felt as if I were in a small venue gig listening to the college band I love.

I may not be as big of a fan compared to others who were there, but I really love Eraserheads. I never went to a big publicized concert except for the 2 concert of Eraserheads. Heck I wouldn't even buy 3k worth of tickets for other artists. I know that deep inside I love the band. The 4 simple guys who wrote songs of trivial events that happen to every Filipino's life have given me the best night ever last night. I had fun like no other. Last night is the best night. I was contented with the previous concert, and then the band still gave us love and pursued to continue and finish what they started.

I will be a fan of the band as a whole and of the members as individuals forever.
Ely
Marcus
Buddy
Raimund
Maraming maraming maraming salamat. Mahal na mahal namin kayo!

Trying to be productive

Trying so hard to be productive, I filled some forms in advance because they need to be signed soon (after all deliverables are submitted). But then I finished early. I did the counter checking of names on the guest list for our upcoming event. Then I finished early. I wasn't supposed to do this but I did it eventually, I made a template for a CD cover and CD Label Sticker through Powerpoint, and I finished early.

Not so much to do. And I did all three while doing other stuff on the side (i.e: reading Isabel Allende's Infinite Plan, looking through a Shinhwa thread and browsing my facebook for something new on Muhan Dojeon).


I did all three without any fuzz... as now I'm waiting for that one signed form I have been waiting for since yesterday.
