Quizzes, exams, assignments... errr.. student life.. This week is my first stressful week of the year and I know it's just the start. At least my Data Structures and History prelim exams are over. But despite all the pressure in my studies I still managed to get my hair cut last wednesday and I really felt good after. I promised myself a new haircut before school starts in 2008 but I only found time to do it this week. Thanks for the holiday.. My exam results in some of my subjects were also released this week.. Thank God I passed though I didn't achieve very high scores, passing is enough.. But of course getting a score a bit higher that the passing score is more fulfilling. I know I don't deserve them though because I didn't study seriously. That's my after-break-laziness syndrome. After the Christmas Break my study habits changed or should I say, "Do I still have study habits??" haha! I really need to improve in my studies... Especially that my subjects are getting more and more difficult. I need to brace myself for more next semester. Argh... I though IT is an easy course... Much as I want to back off and shift to another course, I can't and I won't. I don't have any idea what course I'm going to shift to. I'm going to make it to IT. I'm going to graduate... haha! just cheering myself up...
I wasn't able to attend our Bible Study today because I overslept. Actually I didn't want to go because of my English assignment so before I slept I told myself that if I wake up in time, I'm going. But unfortunately, I wasn't able to wake up before 1. Then my friend called, nobody showed up in our Bible Study but her. I hope she's not mad at me for not telling her that I couldn't come.

It's already late... I need to sleep.. I forgot to mention that I only had at most 5 hours of sleep everyday this week.. I usually need 10 hours to function normally(lol) so I think I really need to make up for the sleep deprivation I had this week.. That's why I finished my English Homework today so that I can rest tomorrow and not wake up early.. Gotta got to sleep folks! God bless!

Last year, I had a long list of things I should resolve for 2007 but I think I only succeeded in one or two of them.. Stop cursing is one (thank God).. I guess having attended a bible study helped me a lot in reconstructing myself last year. I am happy that I have changed some of my negative attitudes and insights about life. And this year, I want to be a better Christian.
I don't really have a definite list for my 2008 New Year's Resolution because I decided not to list a lot so that I won't get disappointed if in the end of the year, I find out that I wasn't able to resolve the things I listed. But on the other hand, I think I should have New Year's Resolution for me to assess myself at the end of the year. So I'm going to try to list my New Year's Resolution here today..

1) Go on a diet/Lose weight/Stay Healthy - how many years have I been wanting to achieve that body I've always longed for? haha! but I think I am improving.. it's really hard for a person with ulcer to go on a diet you know..Tip:(i read this from Cosmo mag) just EAT RIGHT.. and with that I mean to give your body the proper amount of nutrients, carbs, fats(good calories) that it needs so that you won't go on munching on burger or cookies for snacks..
2) Save Money - since I am on my 2nd year on college now, I need to start saving for my future.. and stop spending my money on useless things(like food.. err i just love to eat!)..I think me and my barkada need to minimize having a FEELING-RICH-DAY..all the impulse shopping and eating a lot out..
3) Go on adventures - i really need this.. i need to explore the world now.. because i know that when i graduate and have a job, i can't do it as often anymore..
4) Have more time for my family - do i need to say more? i just love laughing my heart out with them and strolling in the city walks with my sisters..
5) Control my Mood Swings and Temper - oh my.. i'm such a moody person.. really.. even small things affect my mood and so the rest of my day.. :(
6) Live a Stress Free Life (at least try to :P) - oh i know it's going to be hard... especially with my CSs121 subject.. grabeh maka-stress jud kaayo.. just thinking about it.. err.. but I know I can do it.. I need to..
Secrets to Stress-Free Life:
- pray
- talk - tell your best friends how you feel - they will listen.. and they don't have to say anything, their presence(especially a hug) is more than enough to cheer you up and tell you everything's gonna be alright
- write a journal or a blog - writing your thoughts is a healthy way of letting your emotions out.. it's proven and tested friends..
- pamper yourself - go out with your friends - have a FEELING-RICH DAY once in a
- sleep right, eat right - this is really helpful.. promise!
- eat your "pamper-food" - just invented a new term! lol - in my case my "pamper food" is ice cream, it really makes me feel good especially on a BIG, STRESSFUL day..
- pray, pray, pray - no one can ever be of greater help than our Bestfriend..

**from some magazines, friends' advices, personal experiences, and some self-help books..
I hope it helped.. because it really works for me..

so, that's it for today.. i just enumerated my New Year's Resolution.. plus some bonus tips.. hehe! I hope I will be successful in working to resolve the things I listed. I hope..


I can't sleep so even if I don't have any idea what to post today, I guess I'll just write what happened today..

-i was supposed to go with my friends in highschool on our scheduled get-together but the weather wasn't so good for a nature trip (Tinago Falls) so the changed the venue to Timoga Spring Pools.. I decided not to go because it was raining and i didn't want to swim in ice-cold pool waters on a rainy day..
-after cleaning the house, I slept, ate, watched tv, took a bath, and slept again..what a boring day..
- my father called.. i miss him so much and we're very excited because finally, 2 more months and he'll be here.. i can't wait.
- my stepmom also went home this morning

here's the lyrics of "rise" by gabrielle.. i love this song.. i can relate to it.. it really fits my outlook for the new year... I've been through a lot of tough times last year.. but I'm still standing strong today because of God's grace.. I'm so thankful for everything that happened.. even though facing all the trials was difficult, Her never left me and my family, and I came out of it stronger..I'm looking forward to a better year for me and my family.. and for all of us..

I know that it’s over
But I can’t believe we’re through
They said that time’s a healer
And I’m better without you
It’s gonna take time I know
But I’ll get over you

Look at my life
Look at my heart
I have seen them fall apart
Now I’m ready to rise again
Look at my hopes
Look at my dreams
I’m building bridges from these scenes
Now I’m ready to rise again

Caught up in my thinking, yeah
Like a prisoner in my mind
You pose so many questions
But the truth was hard to find
I better think twice I know
That I’ll get over you


Much time has passed between us
Do you still think of me at all?
My world of broken promises
Now you won’t catch me when I fall
