Dahil naman sa uber delayed na ang post na ito at hinahanap na ni Bayee Baquiran ang kasunod, sige, tatapusin ko na siya just for you. Haha.

July

Hmmm…This month was the month (whew!) when I’m starting to feel the college life. I started flopping the quizzes and exams and such that I almost failed my NatSci 1 exams because of fever. July was some kind of hectic dahil naman ito ang UP Cineastes’ Studio application period. Haggard kung haggard! Pero masaya. Kasi nagfield-trip din kami sa Intramuros, and honest to goodness naman, first time kong makarating doon.

August

If may months na masasabi kong super enjoy, ito na siguro yon. Cinemalaya Goes To UP ito! As in kahit busy at pahirapan sa pagbenta ng tickets ay ayos lang bilang
nag-enjoy naman talaga ako sa mga pabida ng Cineaste. At oo nga pala, sa buwan ding ito ako naging Cineaste after a very unforgettable initiation. Astig, but sorry, I won’t explain it further dahil ayoko na talagang ireminisce. Nakakahiya. Haha.

September

Happy 23rd Anniversary, UP Cineastes’ Studio! Hmmm…Sa pagkakatanda ko, ito ang unang raket ko bilang Cineaste…na sumali sa Gawad Urian bilang isang usher! Wahooo! Obviously nag-enjoy ako talaga ng sobra. Andaming stars! Dahil naman ako ay isang taga-lalawigan lamang at produkto ng maralitang pamilya at talaga namang bihirang makakita ng mga artista, aba! Super enjoy ang event na ito. Too bad, hanggang ngayon ay hindi ko pa rin makuha ang photos ko from Abijuice Padilla. Kaya walang ebidensya.
Hmpf.

October

Naku naman, CRS Mode naman ang buwan na ito bilang hindi na kami priority sa pagkuha ng subjects sa UP. At evident nga naman ito dahil wala akong MST at PE na nakuha for this sem. Hmpf. Nung October din naganap ang unang acting work ko sa buong buhay ko through Monique Baldemor and Jumar Yap, et al’s production. I know naman na pagkapangit pangit ng acting ko doon bilang first time ko naman yon, mga kuya at ate. At alam ko rin naman na sobrang pasalamat ko rin sa mga tao behind the prod dahil ito ay isang experience na masasabi kong worth-mentioning. Wala ring photos at videos included (salamat!), so most likely baka masabihan na naman nila itong ilusyon grande na naman. No. Truth ito. Many people can attest to it. Actor na ako, mga kuya, ate.

Sobra din naman ako nagmaasim sa buwan na ito dahil sa DOS na nakuha ko sa creative writing teacher ko, na honestly that time ay gusto ko siyang sakalin ng sobra sobra pero dahil naman sa pagtitimpi ko ay iniiyak ko na lang. Mas sumama pa ang loob ko sa kanya nang malaman ko na ang iba kong kaklase na mga maiikling tula at mga pa-petiks-petiks na istorya ang isinulat ay naka-uno sa kanya. Putang-ina lang, may I just say. Sorry for the outburst of vulgar words. Ganyan siya kasama. Sobrang kasamaan 1ito. Pero kahit na binigyan nya ako ng dos ay walang effect yon bilang College Scholar naman ako. Yehey!

November

Sa mga may kilala sa akin, hindi ko naman na siguro kailangang ipaalala1_562324086l.jpg na November is Hyro’s month dahil sa natal month ko ito. Maraming masasayang nangyari sa buwan na ito at evident siya sa blog ko dahil hindi ako nag-blow-by-blow account sa mga nangyayari. Sa totoo lang, isa lang ang entry post ko noong November at noong November 30 pa ito naipost. Dahil nga sobrang enjoy ay hindi ko na nagawang magblog. Dito pumasok ang birthday party ko kila Misha (wahaha) na isinabay sa induction naming mga new mems. Enggrande talaga dahil may inuman galore na naganap. Sobrang saya ko talaga at masasabi kong yun na ang happiest birthday ko dahil first time kong naexperience na maraming tao ang nagsecelebrate. May regalo pa silang cake sa akin! I love Cineastes very much.

December

Merry Christmas! Dahil nga Christmas ay nagsulputan na ang mga Christmas Chorale, Christmas Party at mga “Christmas Party Afterparty – Baquiran, 2007” Hindi ko talaga makakalimutan ang mga panahon na ito dahil nga unang beses itong nangyari sa buhay ko1_435370009l.jpg at kahit naman siguro kahit sino na makaexperience ng mga bagay na naexperience ko sa buwan na ito ay masasabi nilang worth a lifetime ang experience na ito.0 Wahaha. Puro experience.

Booze rocks. Everyone rocks. I rock. Chairs rock. Heads rock. Wooohooo. Vomit rocks. Puke rocks. Tongues rock. Bayee rocks. Wahaha.

Namiss ko nang sobra sila Max, Mayee, Cedrick, Mother Jumar, Munik, Rich, Misha, Sanya, Ice, Jeff, Jai, Andre, Jaise, Monica, Bianca, hmmm….Teka…I’m making lists na ah. Tama na ito. Na-miss ko silang lahat. Pati mga high-school friends na-miss ko rin ng fatale. Lalo ka na Friendship Della. Tigilan mo na ako. Paulit-ulit ka sa brains ko. Haha.

Saka na ang photos. Maghahalungkat pa ako sa baul.

At last, I had the confidence to show this to you guys. It is my short story. I know it is not yet polished for I know there are some grammatical errors in it, but still, I know this is the best I can do for the moment.

Before reading my story, may I warn you guys that first, it is a bit long and it contains words not suitable for young readers. Readers discretion is advised. There are also seemingly racist sentences, which I intended for character definition.

Also, the story doesn’t necessarily reflect my views about sexuality and other related topics, so live with it. Okay. 🙂

This is my work and no one should, in any way, repost and use it without my sure permission. You know the laws, I hope. 🙂

Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes, when you put a little piece of you on your work, a literary piece perhaps, and you got too attached on it like you treated it as your best work ever, you tend to expect things from it, you tend to expect others to like it also, to admire it, to give it the right commendation you think it deserves. I think it’s human nature. We tend to put a little bit of ourselves on something important to us, on something which signifies our own personality, of our own pleasure. But yeah, I think one of the biggest despair in it is that if things don’t fall under your own expectations.

See, I made a short story for my Creative Writing class as my final paper for this semester. Since I had this feeling of trust and confidence towards the idea I’ve formulated, I just gave it a go and finished the whole material. Actually, it took me more or less three concepts to arrive in that particular idea, and it still took me a long while before I made that idea into a full-blown plot. And that plot, of course, took me a long time before I managed to create a very satisfying short story. 

It was titled Daytime With Trixie. I thought it was good enough to please my teacher. My sister said it was a good one, and that I can even send it to the Young Blood section of The Philippine Inquirer. And to me, I was really confident on that piece of work, because I’ve been on almost a week of sleepless nights just to finish it. And it was somehow attached to me. I even had to listen to Beyonce’s songs when I lacked inspiration. If Beyonce’s not enough, the classic ABBA songs like Chiquitita helped me to put myself on the mood. I did everything to finish the material. Because it is somehow important to me.

It is really important to me.

And yeah, I spent much money on that shit. I spent my remaining money, which is more or less 300 pesos just to print those things out. I could have bought myself my long-desired havaianas if not for it. I know my priorities, of course, and if I really would love to have a good grade on that subject, I need to push in my limits.

I know for a fact that that creative writing class is some sort of a gamble. My grade doesn’t just depend on my writing capabilities, my creativity and my charm. It will depend most on what my teacher wants to see, what she really want to read. Yes. Nangangapa ako sa dilim. 

But my efforts didn’t work. I got DOS. A plain DOS for that unusually beautiful short story. And that DOS, mind you, pushed me to the cliff. I am now hanging on the cliff. It’s make or break. If I won’t get a decent grade on my BC10 class, the chances of being in the College Scholar list will be gone. Bye-bye CS.

You may think I was a little bit grade-conscious. Yes, I am, and it’s just recent. I really need to make it to the CS list. Nahihiya ako sa Ate ko. My sister attends to my academic needs. From tuition, baon, lahat lahat na. Nakakahiya na talaga. Though hindi ko man ipinapahalata na naaapektuhan ako, nasa loob ko pa rin yon. It isn’t her duty to take care of my needs, though she still do it with no hesitations. Kaya nga ang pagiging CS na lang ang maisusukli ko sa kanya eh.

And of course, Ms. Mooney did it again. I won’t blame her for my lame grammar, because I indeed have problems on that and my high school education could be blamed for that. I was initially having some problems on writing and of applying what I’ve learned in the course to my short story because frankly speaking, I’ve learned nothing from her. Thanks to the jinx schedule and the very annoying weather conditions plus her two-week Spain Tour-spree. I really can’t blame anyone but her. No, I can’t blame myself either, because I was really trying really hard to think of the things I’ve learned in her class. Sorry, pero kung meron, hindi ko na alam kung nasaan sila ngayon.

Ms. Mooney, I hope you’re reading this (I know you know this blog.). Though it may look that I’m a little bitter on having a DOS on your subject (which others may call a decent grade, mind you) I don’t care. I really would just love to scar your face at this moment. No. just joking. 🙂 I’m not that kind of violent. Haha.

Kidding aside, I really wished one time that I had the ability to control the time and return to that moment that I’m preenlisting for my 1st semester at the university. Sana hindi ko na lang kinuha ang klase mo. Ooops. I remember. I really didn’t preenlist on your subject. I preenlisted my name on Ms Heidi Emily Abad. Hmmm. IT’S UP’S FAULT! WAAAAH. Damned rotation thingy. Arrrgh!

Okay. I’m okay now. (inhale-exhale)
