Writing about how that one person can make you feel extraordinary had somehow overwhelmed my blog here. Well, truth be told, I haven't exactly written anything like that before. Me thinks it was purely out of pressure yet of pleasure. Anywho, I won first place. And again I want to give thanks for those who supported me, *insert dramatic background music, with someone handing me a Golden Globe-look-alike award* God, my family and my friends. Lol. Hey, anyone out there interested in just writing about stuff and getting a badge for it, feel free to join in Mr. Talksmart's Blog Awards Challenge. ^_^

You've been with this person for over 2 years, you feel like something has changed but that person hasn't.
Then comes in this badass but not bad-looking 3rd wheeler who's been hitting on the girl.
note: she'd been telling me stories about how she got cheated on by her first boyfie and was never taken seriously before.
It had lasted for months, all the flirting and stuff like that. Then with a snap, the girl breaks up with the boyfie on his birthday.
Hooking up with that no-good 3rd wheeler. And so after weeks of spending eekie PDA moments together, she's realized that a lot of people had noticed the big change and "WHY IN THE WORLD IS SHE GOING OUT WITH THAT JERK" buzz is going around already.
Now she's thinking about going back to her ex because their personalities (with that jerk) seem to clash and basically don't mesh well.
The fire's starting to fade out.
And so this ex of hers is actually one of those guys you see on TV. The typical too-good-to-be-true boyfriends. Never cheated and very dedicated. (Hey, they actually exist!)
I just feel so bad for the guy that he's been messed around with but of course, I'm not one to judge a person.
Then her ex starts asking me about how I can help him get them back together (she's making him wait).
Well, I liked the idea at first, but then he started saying something about giving me stuff in return. I was like, what the f*ck. I'd be more than happy to help but not because of bribery. It feels so, so bad. (No other words to put it.)
Now, the point comes to this. I do understand that things had gone and passed already but to be cheated on and to do the exact same thing to another person who's been friggin honest with is not enough reason to start playing around.
And I also understand that there really are some certain circumstances that you can't handle and things start falling into place, but still, if you're going to back yourself up with a reason that it's been done to you first, then that's plain bullcrap.
Or maybe I'm started to get annoyed with the girl acting all kooky and macho about things, or maybe my old self's coming back. (Ohhh.)

I'm not attending school anymore. I mainly lost my interest in studying at that certain school. My colleagues are telling me to try this other school though, and I'm kind of thinking about transferring over there and get serious about my new choice of course. Whatchathink?

Kate (Eva Longoria Parker) and Henry (Paul Rudd) are about to be married, but on the day of their wedding, Kate is accidentally killed by an ice sculpture of an angel, after an argument with the sculptor about the lack of wings. After a year Henry reluctantly agrees to consult a psychic named Ashley (Lake Bell) at the urging of his sister Chloe, arguing that Kate may tell him to get on with his life. Chloe gives Ashley Kate's diary, so that Ashley learns information about Kate which seemingly demonstrates psychic abilities. Despite his initial skepticism over these abilities, Henry is impressed. Moreover, Henry and Ashley fall in love. However, Kate's ghost, who only Ashley can see, is jealous and harasses Ashley to force her to break up with Henry. Ashley persists, but Henry discovers the fraud with the diary and breaks up the relationship.
The ghost of the sculptor who created the angel that killed Kate helps her decide that she wants Henry to be happy after all. The movie ends with Henry and Ashley getting married and Kate going back to heaven.
An extra storyline is about Ashley's assistant Dan (Jason Biggs) who has claimed for years to be gay, allowing him to be Ashley's best friend without sexual connotations. She is upset when Dan confesses to be heterosexual, and to have lied to her because he liked the intimacy, even though it was non-sexual. Nevertheless they go on holiday together after Ashley and Henry break up. Being in love with her, Dan is disappointed that Ashley chooses for Henry. However, Dan and Chloe fall in love.

So I didn't give in that easy. Only to find out weeks after that, my co-worker had a copy of it too. So I thought, "Hey, why not borrow one and watch it. If it's gonna suck at least it didn't cost you anything, except for time and the effort of borrowing it."
And so I watched it with my friend who happened to be the one bugging me about it. It was an OK type of film. Not that funny and not too corny. Jason Biggs was his normal loser-type-bumbling-kind-of-way. Paul Rudd was charming as usual, although he kinda looked stupid in some scenes (aside from the ones where he's supposed to look stupid). Eva Longoria-Parker fit her role to a T, and might I say she made me laugh. Lake Bell has some pretty angles, although it was as if it was her film debut. Well, to be honest, since this is in fact a movie review. I think they could have casted someone else aside from Lake Bell. I didn't find her attractive in any way, nor was her acting skills impressive (which is totally quite the contrary).
Anyway, this isn't exactly the type of film where you laugh your heads off most of the time. Makes you giggle though. :)
Giving this movie 3 stars.
I've been having my hair cut shorter and shorter for the past 3 weeks now. And I don't know why. Me thinks I'm getting ripped off from the salon that I've been going to. Me thinks I'm wasting money on my hair. Me thinks I look good with my new cut. Me thinks all is good.
I'm totally inspired by Kaba Modern's performances. Oh how I wish I was back on the dance floor.

I'm diggin' the slide since it sort of looks neat and sleek. Don't you think so?
Take it. :)
I've got a list of movies I just finished watching but I'm not about to post another movie topic here.
Let me just get this off my chest.
I almost blew my cover about keeping the identity of my crush hidden. I've been cursing myself over and over because my face (and I friggin' felt it too) turned red. Ok, so I'm pretty much bad at this. But I've managed to divert their attention to another person whom I'm supposedly having a fling with (by which of no truth, none whatsoever).
I'm ashamed of myself being too mindful about what other people would say if they found out who she was. She's not exactly the prettiest of them all. I guess I just like her in the inside.
I'm not in the mood to go back to class, sit in front of a boooorrrriinngg teacher reading everything off from her Powerpoint-outlined lesson. Her methodological way of teaching is by far the most uninteresting process, ever. (dot dot dot)
Listen to this:
I'm not typically into this sort of thing, but I like the beat. Makes me wanna dance. :)

I stumbled upon a group of kids dancing as if it took them months to do all those moves at precise speed and stroke.
I'm not one to say that they are really the best, but their style has impressed me.
Some people think that they're The All-Star, but no.
The name's Kaba Modern. Kaba's short for Kababayan. And yes, they are partly Filipino.
Okay, so I've been too cynical about most of us only recognizing Filipino talent if they become famous abroad. But to be honest with you I never really thought that they were of the same race.
I'm not exactly familiar with what most dance moves are called, but through them, I know just about half of it. :p
So here's the clip that had made a mark in my life (too cheesy?, lemme rephrase that).
They made a mark in my head. (better?)
They even joined Randy Jackson's America's Best Dance Crew. It was a stiff competition between them and Jabbawockeez. Sad to say they didn't exactly win it but hell they stood out among those hippity hoppity finalists. And if you're bored out of your mind and interested in watching some of their clips, just search for Kaba Modern in America's Best Dance Crew on YT. :)
Watching them lights a fire in my heart. Makes me wanna break into a dance now. Hoo! Ha!
I like to move it, move it.

Made of Honor
Made of Honor revolves around Tom and Hannah, who have been platonic friends for 10 years. He's a serial dater, while she wants marriage but hasn't found Mr. Right. Just as Tom is starting to think that he is relationship material after all, Hannah gets engaged. When she asks Tom to be her "maid" of honor, he reluctantly agrees just so he can attempt to stop the wedding and woo her.

I guess I've been a fan of Patrick Dempsey since his teeny bopper days. Loved his teen flicks, especially Can't Buy Me Love. His big comeback on Grey's Anatomy didn't interest me, none whatsoever. I don't know, maybe it's because he looked too old and worn out in the series, even though a lot of people seemed to render him "too hot" and "dreamy". Guess that's why he was tagged as Mr. Dreamy there, duh Avy.
Anyway, talking about the film. I saw the poster at the movies and became really drawn to it. Because, again he was the lead character. Anyway, I didn't wait for a dvd copy on it from one of my favorite pirated dvd stores. (Again, I am not ashamed to say that I do buy pirated dvd copies.) So I basically downloaded it through Azureus again, which never fails to amaze me. Got to watch it the day after I finished downloading it. Not exactly a clear copy but hey, as long as I can hear them and see them, it's fine with me.
The movie seemed to be too fast-forward. Didn't show exactly how Hannah had come to accept the marriage proposal from Colin. Somehow, throughout the movie, it makes you think that maybe Hannah was up to something. Trying to setup Tom to let him show his true feelings for her. But then again, maybe it was just me thinking that. Anyway, I did some of sort of research regarding Patrick Dempsey (playing Tom), and he was a juggler before. So that juggling with the plates thing he did in one scene wasn't choreographed, nor was he even trained for it. (Too much information) His guy friends were all so supportive about him trying to win back Hannah. Helping him out in memorizing all what needs to be know about being "the best made of honor" there ever was.
Then again, there was never any depth to the characters. I guess I expected too much from it, just remembered that it is just a romantic-comedy flick. But still, a feel good movie. So if ever you want to watch this, make sure you have your friends along with you. Guy friends or girl friends.
I'm giving this movie 3.5 stars.
Somehow, I became too excited about going back to school. And expected too much from the course. How unfortunate for me to have the same professor on the 2 major subjects I took. I don't think I can even learn anything from her other than how old her son is and how old she was when she first learned to ride a bike. Some people would talk about their lives and their experiences but of course with a lesson at the end. But with her, it's just different. It's like reading a blog filled with nothing but ramblings. Nothing to learn from. I didn't know that she'd be like a teacher in secondary level, where the teacher would mostly just read it off a book. Even though she's reading it through powerpoint presentation (techie professor), she's sort of just translating it in Tagalog. Where in fact, we do understand simple English.
I don't care which universities, colleges or school she has taught at already, it doesn't even show in the way she handles the class. I was thinking of someone who often speaks in riddles, makes the class THINK and not just read and memorize. Oh expectations.
I know I've exerted too much effort in getting all my paperworks done, school records and all those stuff passed to them, but it seems like I'm wasting my time with all of this. I guess, going back to school wasn't exactly a good idea. Oh well.
Then again, at work. My colleague, who happens to be either too naive or just wants to test me, keeps questioning about my sexuality and my experiences. Which of course is a bit awkward, but good thing is, she's decent enough to ask me about those in private. It's also funny how almost everyone at work is very much intrigued and interested in knowing who I actually have a crush on. So much for office romance.
