I was bloghoppin' today, something I haven't done for months. You must realize how bored I am, that's why I'm reading other people's opinions and experiences. Well I came across this one blogger, who's so emotional with the posts, it almost made me cry. Like if only there's such thing as e-hugs, I'll probably be sending him [yea, it's a guy] lots of 'em. Too bad my comments aren't welcome on his page since I ain't a member of his blog provider. If only I could befriend him, I would.

Since I'm on the blog topic... Is it just me who gets bothered by the frequent Friendster reminder that "[name of friend] update his/her Friendster blog". I chose to activate the email notifier of Friendster so that I wouldn't have to check my account everytime just to see if anybody added me or if I have a new testimonial or whatever. Then they'll go flooding the inbox to say so and so updated the blog. I think blogs are supposed to be visited by people at their own free time, and not a 'must' everytime your friend updates it. I don't know. Maybe I just am bored and there's nothing to think of. *Weird*

*sheesh* How weird could I possibly be? *eyes roll*

There's a stupid gossip going around. Allegedly, a group of people saw me and my whole family at Video City, including my pregnant sister. Also, according to the source, they were telling everyone about how big my sister's belly is already (uh, she's five months in the making). Ridiculous! My sister has been in Baguio [that's like three hundred kilometers away] for three months now! (She may have been two months pregnant then but it's not even noticeable.) I haven't even seen my sister with a bulging belly. Nor does she have pictures posted wherein she's uber-pregnant. Oh geez, talk about people na walang magawa sa buhay. Ha ha...

I think I'm getting too old for fairy tales. I've lost the childish side of me which always hopes for a happily-ever-after life [or lovelife]. Though it's a good thing that I'm more of a realistic thinker than idealistic, it doesn't seem too nice at all... I'm always seeing the possible outcomes of a certain action--the positive and the negative side. And when I visualize the negative side, sometimes I just don't go for it; unlike before, though there's a possible negative outcome, I go with the come-what-may attitude. What's happening to me? Slowly my life's becoming a drab.

Earth calling Katia! I know I can't possibly stay too long with this kind of attitude, or else I'll go nowhere. Am I too old for my age? My dad thinks so. That's why he says my interest drifts from one person to another so fast, coz nobody seems to be of the same level of interest, thoughts and whatever. I agree to that theory--partly. Sometimes the conversations are so mababaw, getting me bored to death. Ironically, out of boredom I continue with the conversation. I mean, I'm mababaw when it comes to jokes and all, but to reach a certain level of intimacy/togetherness--for me--needs (and stems from) good conversations.

At times I wonder, there are lots of guys around [me], no good conversations at all? I mean, what do you do with a hottie who does nothing else but to be pacute and pasweet; or a pseudo partner with whom you realize that you're just not on the same wavelength; how about the cutie who falls in love at first sight; or a desperate old pal? Duh. Then my brother interjects: maybe you haven't really just been 'out there' at all to be able to meet 'the guys'. Is it me? Or is it them? Or I'm just not meant to have it right now?

This post is dedicated to everyone who ever said I look like these people (God have mercy and pity on them!) or in any angle alike. Whatever.

First off, Christina Ricci. I agree that I look like her--only on Casper. That's it.

Second, Alicia Silverstone. I think it's my brother's classmate who told my kuya about it. Of course, I don't see the similarity--at all. He says it's when she smiles that I look a bit like her...?

Uh, Katie Holmes? It's the deep set eyes. And cheekbones *daw*?

Gilmore Girls' Rory--Alexis Bledel.

Next, Jaycee (or is it JC?) Parker of Viva Hotbabes. :( Then there's former Promil kid Shaira Luna. I think it's because I also got huge eyes... Kitchie Nadal? She's way too pretty!

Okay guys, it's for you to decide... ;)

My usual boring day got an oomph today. I'm so sad that me and my friends didn't have the chance to watch the last UAAP Nestle Nonstop Cheerdance Competition of our college life; I consoled myself by watching the live telecast instead. Volume's up so it'd feel like I'm there. I watched the whole thing, didn't even switch channels even while commercials are on. Hehe.. An avid fan, huh? Well anyway, I think every school prepared for their respective performances so well, and most have the least errors ever. It's the best ever for all the schools, even for DLSU Pep Squad! No pun intended! :)

I went so neutral while watching the whole show, so I made a good prediction of the top three--I got them correctly! All's constant: 2nd runner up: FEU Pep Squad, 1st runner-up: UP Pep Squad, and we are the champs (UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe)! I predicted so because of the following reasons.

FEU gave a very smooth performance, actually after their performance I said "Okay yun a!", but it's not a hundred percent original, plus their uniforms are last year's. For UP, they're okay, kinarir ang Nonstop portion so I know they'd have a chance to snatch the crown back. But when I saw UST's performance (UP performed before them), it's a no-brainer. I mean, UP's stunts and routines were "all original" (according to their courtside reporter) and really hard to perform, but overall, UST 'cheerdanced' better. The moves are perfectly in synch, you'd wonder how many months they've prepared for this. I didn't really like their uniform though, it's so--tiger-ish! Like, *meow*, oops I mean, *roar*. ;)

So I'd like to congratulate the 4-peat UAAP Nestle Nonstop Cheering Competition Champs, the University of Santo Tomas Salinggawi Dance Troupe! Now I think, did I really inspire them to win? Ever since I enrolled myself in the university, they won every cheering competition, til now--my senior year... hmmmm? Just kidding!

UST Roar for 4!

somebody save me

I've finished reading Amy Tan's The Hundred Secret Senses. Boy, oh boy, I learned a lot from it. Maybe because some of the Chinese principles are actually my principles too (or Filipinos's too, since we've had great Chinese influence, eh). Who'd have thought that a book with a funny looking cover would contain such great ideas and views in life? I can't believe I ignored it for so long. I recommend reading it, to people who love to read more than just fiction... (I mean it's fiction--yeah--but the lessons are..well..real.. whatever.) To anyone who loved The Celestine Prophecy and the Tenth Insight, would sure love this too. Anyway here are a few morals I've learned:

+ For some people, Yin isn't Yang, and Yang isn't Yin. Learn to respect other people's principles and opinions.

+ Everyone must dream. We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming is like saying you can never change your fate.

+ The doctrine of determinism: All the events and even human choices follow natural laws.

+ Too much happiness always overflows into tears of sorrow.
I hope you'd have a copy and read it and enjoy it as much as I did. By the way, thanks to Tita Grace who sent the book years back I think.


The hurricane Katrina really devastated New Orleans, I feel so sorry for all the victims. By the way, I am a different Katrina, so don't go blaming me! He-he. I included them in my prayers that they may recover and start again. Material things may be built or restored again, but lives cannot be.

While I'm at the topic of fortuitous events, I'd like to commemorate (and pray for) the victims of the 9/11 attack, and the heroes behind it too. I hope all's better.


I've been at home for a whole month now, and it's a bore.

What energy pushes me to get up from bed even if I have nothing to do?
High noon's heat energy.

What keeps me busy?
Playing downloaded games, reading books, answering Friendster surveys, blogging and chatting.

What makes my mind work?
Thinking of what meal to prepare for the working and schooling housemates (which is like, everybody except me).

Where do I go when I go out of the four corners of our house?
The supermarket, doing groceries.

What's the best part of my day?
Having someone to talk to--that's when the people are already at home--and taking a bath.

Oh dear, somebody save me...
