Have you ever felt so bad that you want to ventilate through your blog, yet you can't because you know something bad may happen? That's what I'm feeling right now. Hay. Grr.

Friday the 13th/DWTL 229

Friday the 13, always unforgettable for me. Here's a list of things that happened to me when this day came.

  • February 13, 2004 - My friend gave me a cool, pointy bracelet for my birthday, which I still keep up to this day. My classmates make a big fuss about it, and I like it. Tomorrow would be the day I turn 13 and experience euphoria in seeing BoA perform Rock With You live at the 2004 MTV Asia Awards.
  • August 13, 2005 - I won some contest in literature month in school, the drop box answer thing. I won chips.
  • October 13, 2006 - Finally, our team, the green team, won 1st place the amazing race in our cluster night, after three years of losing to other teams! :))
Did you click for Days? If so, then let me sum up what Days was like for me in a word (kasi medyo magsisimula na 231 at 'di pa ko nagko-comment): déjà vu. Sibling illustrations, slippers splashing on water, Tito Ralph, and "blessed be the name of the Lord." Hanggang dito na lang siguro. A massive riot may occur if I continue.

three defeats! :)) :))

Nanalo kami sa UAAP basketball at swimming. I'm congratulating them now because I'm going to talk about defeats that I saw my school experience.

While we're happy for these wins, we're mourning our loss at the seniors' basketball game against UST yesterday. My classmates are ventilating and dissing the trophy, claiming it was ugly, just to ease the pain of sadness that they feel. I remember watching the first half of the game in school, when Ateneo was still in the lead. I rode my school bus, slept there. Waking up at the front of our house, I heard kuya Mike say to my mom, "natalo tayo." Mom was still happy. My brother studies in Santo Tomas. :))

Mass today, UAAP being mentioned from start to finish. Announcement of Diyaryo Drive winners followed. It was amazing, 13 sections tied in second place, I think. Our class lost again. Last year, it was sad because Mr. Villegas said that his moderating classes always had the lowest amount of newspapers. This year, it was sad because it was our parents who had to tell us to stop bringing newspapers, because they said that it was us who needed the money and we weren't active in newspaper-bringing anyway. We're poor because: 1) Not everybody was paying the class funds, and 2) the class funds are always consumed by the soirees. I thought our class is banner-hungry! I found this sadder than our UAAP loss. :))

A "B" in conduct? I think my mom still has not gotten over with my English conduct mark, and the thought that she is not at peace with the reasons my teacher gave haunts me. I definitely didn't mean Ms. Paliza or anyone offense when I "seemed sleepy, unattentive, and uninterested." My lame excuses: I'm sorry that I have to wake up as early as 4 to go to school in order to be fetched by my school bus and arrive at home as late as 6, and I'm sorry that it was only during the most crucial year of my high school life when I had to adjust to this kind of transportation. This B hurts more than my C in Filipino. Notice that I'm not laughing anymore.
