Events Day

Posting this in the early morning kasi sigurado na’kong wala na’kong oras mamaya. It’s 6:09AM right now, in case you’re curious.

Events Day today! As in, maraming events ang mangyayari ngayon. Or, maybe konti lang, pero ‘pag iniisip ko parang ang dami talaga.

Happy 23 Takeshi!

It’s Takeshi Yasutoko’s birthday today!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy Birthday to him!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t believe I’ve been following his career since he was 10.ย But guess what — his career started when he was even younger than that! Hehehe.

If you don’t know who he is, look him up. And be wonderfully surprised by this person whom I’ve been fangirling for for, wow — (here’s another realization) half of my life!

I’m not an only child anymore!

I’m actually technically the youngest of three, but because both my siblings have been abroad for the past 3 years, it’s been a running joke in our household that I’m an only child. It’s great sometimes, but it’s not really a lot of fun when you’re always in the spotlight. Your mistakes are always noticed!

It might be weird to have my brother around after so long, though. See, before he went abroad to work, he’d been living near his university (ADMU — it’s in QC. Yes! In the north! So very far away from our home!) since he graduated from high school, which was… whoa– 10 years ago!

So many realizations today, too! I can’t believe he hasn’t been living in our house for 10 years already! I mean sure, he comes home during the weekend, but he meets with his friends anyway so most of his time is still spent, er, not at home. We’re not actually that close, so I don’t really notice it, but yeah, it’ll probably be weird at least for the first couple of weeks. But hey, like I said, at least I’m not an only child anymore! ๐Ÿ˜€

We Won! We Won! Part IV?

Hopefully.

Party in our office today, and it involves the final round of the singing contest I was telling you about in the previous entry, and also the other contests (i.e. dating game and quiz bee). My teammates all made it to the final round (of course!), but are we going to win?

I’m keeping my fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Of course, I’d love if we won all 3 events (though the dating game is just fun, it’s not for prestige of any kind). But even if we don’t, we’ve had so much fun just preparing for them, I think in some ways we’ve already won anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Haha, way to keep positive!) But still, I hope we win everything and become overall champions! Not that there’s an award like that. Mayabang lang ako. Hehe.

Work Work Work

Lastly, and this is the part that I least like, ANG DAMING TRABAHO!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I’m Tired… So Tired

It’s 1:47 AM where I’m at. I have been up since 6:30 AM yesterday. And I was out of the house for practically the entire day, learning Japanese, walking the streets of Makati, shopping and talking seemingly endlessly with my friend. I’m so tired right now, can hardly keep my eyes open, but I still can’t bring myself to shut down the computer and go to sleep.

I don’t know why it is really. Somehow I feel like I’m on the verge of writing something really good, but I’m too tired to think. Maybe I should be writing it down now, but I have no idea what it is yet. Does that ever happen to you?

I have so much to do. I haven’t even taken out of their plastic bags the things I bought in the mall earlier, nor covered in plastic my new book for Japanese class. I’ve done nothing since I got home except to change my clothes, brush my teeth, and manage to make both my parents mad by telling them that that 3-year-old Korean kid who won the Beatles fan award for singing Hey Jude in YouTube was nothing special. They made such a big fuss over how he was unique because he can sing Hey Jude even if he doesn’t speak a word of English. I merely pointed out that with songs, we all can sing in whatever language we want, and with kids especially, they just repeat what they hear anyway. I know I didn’t understand Somewhere Out There when I sang it at a Christmas party when I was 5 years old. I just repeated the sounds I heard from the radio.

After I told her what I did, my mom’s exact words were: “Ano bang problema mo sa mundo?” (What is your problem with the world?)

It’s just the over-sensationalizing of things, I guess. I’m going to agree that that kid was talented for being somewhat in tune and having the correct timing to a song, even though he’s only 3 years old, but I’m not going to give him credit for being able to sing something, not in his own language. Because that’s basically just repeating sounds incoherent to you, but don’t all kids do that anyway?

I don’t understand how they can be so enthralled with that kid singing a song by the Beatles, but don’t take it seriously when I tell them how Takeshi Yasutoko’s been competing on the X-Games competition before he was even 10 years old. Tell me, where’s the justice in that?

Happy 22! XD

What, you thought I forgot? OF COURSE NOT!

Takeshi Yasutoko turns 22 today! ๐Ÿ™‚
