Note: this post is from my other blog, this was published on October 27th, 2005.
I took English 4 (Literature) last summer, i wasn’t really a big fan of Shakespeare’s sonnet..mostly because..i don’t understand what the heck he is saying! We were asked to do individual reports. Our teacher assigned us different sonnets to discuss and explain every single line of it. I was assigned to do "Sonnet 18" (see below)
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee
the first time i’ve read it..i was like " unsa mani oi sobra ka laglom!!"..the day of my report..i came to class unprepared! The time I was called on to do the report..i just stood in front of the class..inventing the meaning of the sonnet…hehe..ulaw au!
Thanks to my teacher, she backed me up and got me out of that total nightmare!
Do you know what the sonnet means? hehe..just try! if dili jud makaya..you can visit thist site! :p
Sa una ra unta ni nako nakit an nga site para wala ko naulawan! hahaay!!

This troubled me for quite a while now, I noticed that I feel tired easily, and my heart would suddenly pumped so hard I can barely breathe. This must be stress I said to myself. I can't deal with the endless pressures right now. Final exams, INC's, Thesis, Graduation. I feel like I'm going to explode. It's draining my energy. I need to rest. I am tired.

"Poetry reformed. Poetry reformed." this was what the IPAG director (forgot his name) said on the opening of TULA TUGMA SA SAYAW AT DULA.
I was suppose to watch the play last friday night at 7:30, but because of my laziness I arrived at the mini theater around 8. The door was already locked and the usher told me, that I have to watch it the following night with a reminder to not be late or else I'll be locked out again. I was a little pissed and mumbling to myself. ("Do you know why there are so many people watching your show? It's because english teachers have made it compulsory for students to watch the show, If not because of the teachers no one would watch it").
Since it is compulsory I attended the following night. The aura of venue changed amy mood and my perception about the show. The venue was interesting filled with actors and actresses in different characters. A young poet on the show (again I forgot her name) also shared her views about being a poet. A little extra keenness in life is what makes a poet. Experience is the key. She also mentioned that in poetry when you throw a poem to a reading public, people tend to create their own interpretation of the poem and with that a poem grow. Some interpretations may even be different from what the poet intended. Every interpretation is correct as long as you have the basis for it.
I began to understand Poetry in a different sight. I have always regarded myself as an artist but at that night I realized that my understanding about art is only on the surface level. I've learned a lot by watching the show and finally said to myself I'm glad I watched it.

I was stunned when I saw the news yesterday that Filipino rapper Francis Magalona died because of Leukemia (nevermind the spelling not sure bout it)! He died at the age of 44..He looked young for his age..I didn't even know that he was sick. Well I was never really a fan of rap songs but I have always admired his love for music and for his country which is very evident in his songs. I hope wherever he is, he's happy and at peace. We will definitely miss you!
For those who wanted to know more about his battle against cancer visit his personal blog at http://happybattle.net

As expected the prom was pretty boring..So we decided to go home early. Before heading back to the dormitory I snatched a black balloon off the venue's ceiling and took it to the dorm. After a few chats in the dorm, I invited my dormates to make write their wishes and attached it to the balloon and let it fly and we did. We released the balloon almost 3:00 am!! We also wrote our cellphone numbers in case someone find it. When I woke up in the morning I was surprised that somebody texted me and claim that he got our balloon. We were even more surprised that he was from another region almost 2 hours away from us. Wow! our little black balloon sure did flew in great distance. We made a new friend in the name of Ran-Ran. Hope our little wishes come true! One of the best moments in my dorm!

I took my PADI licensure test two years ago with my co-majors under dive master Renoir Abrea. The test was basically about skills you need to execute during diving sessions. like what to do in case of you ran out of air, rescuing skills,swimming tests, and lots of hand signals memorization. Practices are done on swimming pools but the actual evaluation is on the open water.he experience was overwhelming, seeing the underwater world and breathing underwater! I passed the open water examination! and I'm planning to do advance diving and hopefully become a dive master myself! T Can't wait for the next diving experience! wooohhh!
It has always been my hobby to draw ever since i was a kid. and ofcourse I have improved since then. This is one of my favorite drawings. It's from a hit online game RAGNAROK. I don't really play the game but i decided to draw it nevertheless. I draw it on a whole cartolina paper..hehe..I used pastels as coloring materials...Sorry, the image is not that good since i only have my camera phone. Thanks and please comment.

I learned about this when I was in highschool. My friends used to do this so I asked them to teach me. Hehe..It's kinda like Origami (Japanese art of paper folding) but this time we're going to do this with a hanky. Here are the steps in creating a masterpeice!! It's actually very simple Lol.
First is fold your hanky to about one fourth of it's size like the picture below
Fold the two upper corner so that it will look like this
Then fold the pointed upper part like in the picture
Then roll both sides of the upper diagonal corner towards the center.
Also roll each sides towards the center.
When you have finished rolling all the sides it will look like this.
Then turn the hanky around...tuck in the extra fabric...
...and TADAAANNNN!!! you have your very own origami piece...lol
P.S. This is not an adult content. This is Art..peace!

The rain is like little kisses from heaven.
The rain connects us all.
The rain symbolizes joy...
I saw a video on youtube regarding tutorials for drawing on MS paint. I love drawing and tried to have it on MS paint. and here's the result. It's almost like an original drawing of sasuke, like my friends would say. But if you look closely you can see the difference. The eye sharingan is a little weird and the head protector's kinda off. Hope you like it.

Yey! The long wait is over! Mystery band's debut cover is out! This is the first ever video from the mystery band. (haha can anything be cornier than the band's name? ) we have ryan for vocals, mac euan on guitar and edmar as someone useless at the side. Haha..The site was in linamon, when mac euan had his thesis sampling. We took it during our break. One afternoon of acoustic jamming! The cover is entitled your guardian angel by the red jumpsuit apparatus. Sorry for the resolution of the video. We had only our cellphone camera to catch this funny moment. We were really planning to make a serious career out of it. I mean seriously. Hope you enjoy.
