7/27/07 06:58 pm - five simple ways to be happy =)
I got this from Jen's blog.
Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.
***I AM HAPPY at the moment.

After 72 entries, I'm back in Manila.
It feels undeniably great to see my family and friends again.
A lot of things have changed. I changed.
dilemma: the more things change, the more they stay the same.

One bad thing about winning a darts game twice against an American and a couple of Russians is that it can make them think that I am from a boar-hunting community which until now thrives in a hunter and gatherer society. I just earned the reputation of being the queen of the tribe. Nice.
The things I learned about my self today.
1. Almost always, I can hit the target. Proof: Winning the standard cricket twice and almost winning the
2. I lack strategic planning. Proof: An embarrassing failure on the cricket cut throat game. =(
***Straight from one of the horse's mouth: Russians are designed to kill Germans and write long books while the Americans are busy trying to unethically rule the world.

Strangers with Candy's memorable lines. This will stick for a while.

Geoffrey Jellineck: You pushed me away!
Chuck Noblet: I wasn't pushing you away, I was pulling me toward myself.

Chuck Noblet: Look Geoffrey, I'm glad you stopped by. I'd like you to leave.
Geoffrey Jellineck: I'm sorry, what's happening?
Chuck Noblet: It's over.
Geoffrey Jellineck: What are you saying, Chuck?
Chuck Noblet: I need more out of this relationship than I'm willing to put in. I think I deserve better, don't you? Hey, I know this is hard on you. It would be hard on me, too, if I broke up with me. I know what you're losing.

Jerri Blank: (talking to Megawati) I'm just having some cruel fun at your expense! Jeez, I thought you people had thicker skins than that. You know, fighting those tigers in the jungle and all.
Jerri Blank: Why doesn't anybody like me?

Disclaimer: This entry was written not because I was on my nerd mode (again).
I remember taking one of the most interesting subjects I've taken in UP, Sociology 101. I took it on the second semester (November to March) where it was very nice to sleep late during the mornings because of the relatively cold weather in Manila and the class was every 7-9 AM on a Wednesday. I won't say it was a form of torture where students needed to wake up very early in the morning for that Wednesday class (Wednesday where most of the Iskos and Iskas were still enjoying the perks of the supposedly "research day for the students" aka "pwedeng-matulog-buong-araw" or "pwedeng-uminom-kahit-tuesday-night") because I enjoyed every minute I spent in that classroom. I was aware that I wasn't the only person who felt that way. your_bitchness and pink_issues can attest to that. I could remember being very angry at myself for waking up 15 minutes after 7. I managed to arrive in school at around 8 without taking a shower. (I went back to my place after the class to take a shower. --> me being defensive)
Not all of our professors in the university can actually teach us something that we could actually use in our daily existence. Case and point, sociological imagination. V. useful. =) see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sociological_imagi
It was just amazed to see her on Facebook this morning. I remember draiard suggested that we should start a fan club. The idea was half meant but thinking of establishing a fan club for a professor was such an unusual idea. The common thing was mostly a campaign for "don't-get-that-prof's-class" or "she-is-a-monster-c*ck-s*cking-b*tch" .
On a different note, I am 680 hours and 24 minutes away from Manila . I hope it won't be too long. I want to be home soon. I must be home soon. I am, or maybe we, are getting tired of waiting.
