Subject:Chasing Amy :) (Care of Francine)
Time:2:21 pm.
"I love you. And not, not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I LOVE YOU. VERY, VERY SIMPLE, VERY TRULY. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just, I can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't, I can't look into your eyes without feeling that, that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are.
And I know this will probably queer our friendship - no pun intended - but I had to say it, because I've never felt this way before, and I don't care. I like who I am because of it. And if bringing this to light means we can't hang out anymore, then that hurts me. But God, I just, I couldn't allow another day to go by without just getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shoot-down. And, you know, I'll accept that. But I know...I know that some part of you is hesitating for a moment, and if there is a moment of hesitation, then that means you feel something too. All I ask, please, is that you just, you just not dismiss that - and try to dwell in it for just ten seconds.
Alyssa, there isn't another soul on this fucking planet who has ever made me half the person I am when I'm with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it is there between you and me. You can't deny that. Even if, you know, even if we never talk again after tonight, please know that I'M FOREVER CHANGED BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU'VE MEANT TO ME, which - while I do appreciate it - I'd never need a painting of birds bought at a diner to remind me of."

-Holden McNeil, "Chasing Amy"

Subject:It All Finally Makes Perfect Sense
Time:8:41 am.
The Moods of a Woman:

An angel of truth and a dream of fiction,
A woman is a bundle of contradiction,
She's afraid of a wasp, will scream at a mouse,
But will tackle a stranger alone in the house.
Sour as vinegar, sweet as a rose,
She'll kiss you one minute, then turn up her nose,
She'll win you in rage, enchant you in silk,
She'll be stronger than brandy, milder than milk,
At times she'll be vengeful, merry and sad,
She'll hate you like poison, and love you like mad.

The mood of a man:

and Sleepy!!!

Subject:That's Amore Lyrics [Weeeh Heinz tama lyrics namin ahaha]
Time:11:55 pm.
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita Bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fagiole
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not
Dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That's amore

When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
(That's amore)
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
(That's amore)
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
(Lucky fella)

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fagiole
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not
Dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That's amore
That's amore

Subject:What My Name Means
Time:1:51 am.
Taken from: http://www.paulsadowski.com/Numbers.asp
You entered: Miguel Joson VIllanueva

There are 21 letters in your name.
Those 21 letters total to 88
There are 10 vowels and 11 consonants in your name.
What your first name means:

SpanishMaleSpanish form of Michael 'God like'.
PortugueseMaleForm of Michael 'Who is like God?'.

Your number is: 7

The characteristics of #7 are: Analysis, understanding, knowledge, awareness, studious, meditating.

The expression or destiny for #7:
Thought, analysis, introspection, and seclusiveness are all characteristics of the expression number 7. The hallmark of the number 7 is a good mind, and especially good at searching out and finding the truth. You are so very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, that very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding. You are the type of person that can really get involved in a search for wisdom or hidden truths, often becoming an authority on whatever it is your are focusing on. This can easily be of a technical or scientific nature, or it may be religious or occult, it matters very little, you pursue knowledge with the same sort of vigor. You can make a very fine teacher, or because of a natural inclination toward the spiritual, you may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or even psychic explorations. You tend to operate on a rather different wavelength, and many of your friends may not really know you very well. The positive aspects of the 7 expression are that you can be a true perfectionist in a very positive sense of the word. You are very logical, and usually employ a quite rational approach to most things you do. You can be so rational at times that you almost seem to lack emotion, and when you are faced with an emotional situation, you may have a bit of a problem coping with it. You have excellent capabilities to study and learn really deep and difficult subjects, and to search for hidden fundamentals. At full maturity you are likely to be a very peaceful and poised individual.

If there is an over supply of the number 7 in your makeup, the negative aspects of the number may be apparent. The chief negative of 7 relates to the limited degree of trust that you may have in people. A tendency to be highly introverted can make you a bit on the self-centered side, certainly very much self-contained . Because of this, you are not very adaptable, and you may tend to be overly critical and intolerant. You really like to work alone, at your own pace and in your own way. You neither show or understand emotions very well.

Your Soul Urge number is: 3

A Soul Urge number of 3 means:
With the Soul Urge number 3 your desire in life is personal expression, and generally enjoying life to its fullest. You want to participate in an active social life and enjoy a large circle of friends. You want to be in the limelight, expressing your artistic or intellectual talents. Word skills may be your thing; speaking, writing, acting, singing. In a positive sense, the 3 energy is friendly, outgoing and always very social.

You have a decidedly upbeat attitude that is rarely discouraged; a good mental and emotional balance.

The 3 Soul Urge gives intuitive insight, thus, very high creative and inspirational tendencies. The truly outstanding trait shown by the 3 Soul Urge is that of self-expression, regardless of the field of endeavor.

On the negative side, you may at times become too easygoing and too optimistic, tending to scatter forces and accomplish very little. Often, the excessive 3 energy produces non-stop talkers. Everyone has faults, but the 3 soul urge doesn't appreciate having these pointed out.

Your Inner Dream number is: 4

An Inner Dream number of 4 means:
You dream of being a very solid citizen that people can depend upon. You strive for organization and predictable order. You want to be recognized as a person with a plan and the discipline to make that plan work like clockwork.

Subject:Are you Davaoeno? [repost]
Time:4:12 am.
Friday, October 21, 2005
by Sir Bong Eliab

How can one distinguish a Davaoeno to a Cebuano? Or to a Cagayanon? Difficult? Easy. Davaoenos are one of the most unique people in the world. We can easily stand out if we are placed in a crowd of Filipinos from other parts of the country. And how, you say? Language.
Davao City, aptly called the melting pot of cultures, is home to many dialects. Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilonggo, Ilocano, Chavacano, Moslem, Bicolano. Name it, we'll speak it. If the Filipino language is a composition of all the dialects and languages in the Philippines , you might as well say that the language we speak in Davao City is the real Filipino language, and not Tagalog.
However, since it is a hodgepodge of different tongues, it is sometimes funny to hear our language "bastardizing" , for lack of better word, the other dialects. Strangely, that distinguishes us from the rest. Try these.
In stating a fact, Manilenos say, "Talagang mabait si Weng." In Davao , we say. "Mabait bitaw gyud si Weng". Too assertive? One asks, "Ano nga `yong pangalan mo?". In Davao we say, "Ano gani `yong pangalan (or worst, ngalan) mo?". When somebody commits a mistake or surprises someone, we always never fail to say, "Halaka!". Duh.
We are fond of re-constructing the language. There's the GI+ verb, such as,"Gisabi kasi ni Helen na mag-absent si Bernerd bukas", or "Ginanon ni Lalai si Belinda sa mukha". You'll never find "ginanon" in any dictionary, I swear to God. There's the KA+ adjective, as in, "Kaputi gyud ng mukha ni Yang-yang" or "Kapayat gyud ni Jason ngayon." The MAKA + verb form, such as, "Maka-inis talaga si Albert, uy!" or "Maka-uwi talaga ako ng matagal ngayon". The NAG+ verb, as in,"Nagsabi kasi si Tita Prescy na pupunta daw tayo ng airport" or "Hindi pa man siya nagdating, uy!"
Adding new words or new meanings to old words to the dictionary is one of our favorite past time.
NAKIN: "Alam man nakin `yan ba!", "Saan nakin kita nakita gani?".
KU-AN: "Ku- an daw ang gawin mo", "Si ku-an kasi ano masyado". (No sense at all.)
ANO: "Na-ano ka diyan, Bryan !", "Ano man yan si Van, uy!".
HA: "Lake-ha na ng tiyan ni Lulu uy!", "Gwapa-ha niya uy!"
BEH: "Sige daw beh, dare!", "Pakipasa daw ng ballpen ni Tzaris beh".
KAY: "Huwag na, Wowie, kay nandito naman si Norma", "Umupo ka muna kay
nasa-CR pa si Elma."
To express disgust over someone, we utter, "Gago kaba diay para maniwala sa kanya", or "Ano man yan siya uy!", or "Maka-inis man yan siya, uy!", or when pestered when doing something, you'd quip,"Huwag lagi ba!" On the other hand, when we praise somebody's extra special deed or talent, our Davaoeno tongue slips words like,"Kuyaw lagi `yan siya!", "Galenga niya uy!", "Ayusa niya uy!", "Kuyawa ni Orly uy!" or "Hindi ako makatu-o sa ginawa niya!" . Hay, makatawa talaga. Ooops!
There are just so too many words to mention. Just check out the words you spew everyday. Sometimes you just laugh at yourself when you realize that you've just said those very words. No matter how long you stay in Manila or in the States, the moment you're back to Davao , your tongue feels as at home as you do. Language is the very soul of every being. You just can't do anything about it. Or as how we say it,"Anohin man natin yan?"

Subject:My Own Worst Enemy [Lyrics]
Time:9:58 pm.
Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk
I didnt mean to call you that
I cant remember what was said or what you threw at me
Please tell me
Please tell me why
My car is in the front yard
And Im sleeping with my clothes on
I came in through the window last night
And youre gone
Its no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy
Cuz every now and then I kick the living sh*t out of me
The smoke alarm is going off and theres a cigarette
Still burning
Please tell me why
My car is in the front yard
And Im sleeping with my clothes on
I came in through the window last night
And youre gone
Please tell me why
My car is in the front yard
And Im sleeping with my clothes on
I came in through the window last night
Its no surprise to me I am my own worst enemy
Cuz every now and then I kick the living sh*t out of me
Can we forget about the the things I said when I was drunk
I didnt mean to call you that

Subject:The Middle [More Random yet Appropriate Lyrics Care of Rock Band 2]
Time:12:39 am.
Don't write yourself off yet.
It's only in your head you feel left out,
Or looked down on.
Just try your best,
Try everything you can.
And don't you worry what they tell themselves
When you're away.

It just takes some time,
Little girl, you're in the middle of the ride.
Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright. (alright)

You know they're all the same.
You know you're doing better on your own, (on your own)
So don't buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn't matter if it's good enough (good enough)
For someone else.

Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
It's only in your head you feel left out, (feel left out)
Or looked down on.
Just do your best, (just do your best)
Do everything you can. (do everything you can)
And don't you worry what their bitter hearts (bitter hearts)
Are gonna say.

Subject:That's What You Get. [Random Lyrics which are Strangely Appropriate]
Time:4:54 am.
No sir, well I don't wanna be the blame, not anymore.
It's your turn, to take a seat we're settling the final score.
And why do we like to hurt, so much?

I can't decide
You have made it harder just to go on
And why?
All the possibilities...
Well I was wrong

That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa!
That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa...
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating.
And that's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa.

I wonder, how am I supposed to feel when you're not here.
'Cause I burned every bridge I ever built when you were here.
I still try... holding onto silly things, I never learn.
Oh why? All the possibilities. I'm sure you've heard.

That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa!
That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa..
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of its beating.
And that's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa.

Pain, make your way to me. (to me)
And I'll always be just so inviting.
If I ever start to think straight,
This heart will start a riot in me,
Let's start... Start, hey!

Why do we like to hurt so much?
Oh why do we like to hurt so much?

That's what you get when you let your heart win!

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.

I can't trust myself with anything but this,
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.

One Big Fight!
By Junefe Gilig Payot
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 02:06:00 10/03/2008

The Ateneo de Manila University’s blue babble battalion was already performing for the half-time break when I got to the Araneta Coliseum for the first game of the basketball finals of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines. It took time for my ears to adjust to the pounding of drums and for my eyes to absorb the spectacular sight of a jam-packed coliseum divided into blue and green. On my way up to find a place, I saw a lady wearing a shirt, half of which was blue and the other half green. It had the words, “Kanino ka ba talaga?” [“Whose side are you really on?”] I laughed inwardly, but that was not enough to get me into a cheering mood.

Having just come from a meeting of urban poor mothers in Barangay Batasan Hills, I had a brief bout of culture shock — like I had just come from a less fortunate country and now found myself in another country where people all wore clean blue shirts, smelled good, had really nice skin and spoke a distinct brand of English. Moreover, I had to deal with the feeling one gets after seeing the kind of palpable poverty which makes other concerns petty in comparison, including the greatest rivalry in Philippine sports. So I had to make some quick inner adjustments to allow myself to enjoy the game. But the questions would not stop.

My work entails constantly shuttling between communities in the opposite extremes of the economic spectrum and the things I see make me ask questions. How is it possible that some have comfortable houses to go home to after studying in air-conditioned classrooms while others sleep on the cold floor of a crowded house? How is it possible that half of urban Filipino families are said to be “illegal settlers”? Isn’t there something wrong with property laws that make so many families “illegal settlers”? Are many Filipino families poor because some are very rich?

While trying to parry the questions, I saw a batch-mate whose first question to me was not “Kumusta?” but “‘Uy, buti nakakuha ka pa ng ticket.’ [Good you still got a ticket.] How much did you pay for it ba?” I found the “ba” at the end disturbingly superfluous even as I enjoyed mimicking him silently. I said that I had paid the normal price. And he told me, “Lucky you, ‘pare. Me, I had to pay more than triple the price.”

That, of course, only led to more mimicking as he left and then to some wishful thinking: If each of the estimated 22,000 people at the Big Dome donated the same amount that they spent for their tickets to this game (I heard that some paid P25,000 for a patron ticket!), they could help formalize the tenure of at least 500 urban poor families in Batasan Hills.

The wishful thinking went on and on until the roar of the blue crowd jolted me back to reality. Rabeh had just made another shoot-miss-rebound-shoot. So I pumped my fist in the air with the crowd shouting, “Go Ateneo! One Big Fight!” But my arms soon got tired (I must be getting old), and I was alone with my thoughts again. How do we rally people against poverty? How do we generate the same level of energy that is created whenever the Green Archers and the Blue Eagles play against each other in the fight against poverty?

The two schools have been doing much to fight poverty. De La Salle University has many institutions dedicated to helping combat poverty, foremost among which is the Social Development and Research Center which for many years has been implementing projects that help the rural as well as the urban poor. The Ateneo has a long history of social involvement, too. In fact, the most famous anti-poverty movement today, Gawad Kalinga, is a brainchild of its alumnus Tony Meloto and has been supported strongly by the Ateneo community. Also, the Ateneo has long been trying to find ways for its students, who come mostly from privileged backgrounds, to experience poverty more directly through immersions in poor communities.

But I don’t know if these are enough. I don’t know if the Ateneo, De La Salle, the University of the Philippines and all the other universities in the country are doing enough to use the resources and opportunities at their disposal to fighting poverty and to changing the structures of inequality. Universities have the unique opportunity to shape young people into conscientious future leaders who will effectively change the status quo.

I remember a conversation I had with a Jesuit friend who said that the Ateneo universities must ask themselves whether the education they provide preserves, rather than transforms, the status quo. He lamented that many of the students who enroll in the Ateneo universities go there with the goal of eventually getting a job in the very social structure which the Jesuit social apostolate is professing to change. He said that there has to be more dovetailing between the social apostolate and the educational apostolate to effect change.

I cannot agree more. There is a need to produce a new bunch of university graduates who are truly committed to fighting poverty and inequality. Our universities need to inculcate a sense of social responsibility in their graduates so that they will not see their work merely as a well-deserved reward for years of studies but more importantly as an opportunity to help in nation-building.

So as I looked around the crowd of mostly young people proudly singing “A Song to Mary” after a well-deserved win, I could only wish that they were pumping their fists in the air in solidarity with the poor, like the activists of the past. The country needs their energy, creativity, expertise and commitment. This fight against poverty is truly One Big Fight!

My ulnar nerve is being compressed near my capitulum due to the fact that I am using it for support as I lie down on my bed and type on my laptop.

8 hours of studying in 1 day does that to you.

Subject:Herald to the Storm
Time:6:52 pm.
Well Med School's about to begin and there are still so many things to be handled, I'm moving into our apartment/condo in Valle 6 in a few hours, I still have to finish packing all of my stuff, like my study lamps, graphic novels, etc, I need to come with my tita to pick up my mom from the airpor because she wants to see her eldest son off to Med School, I have to help move the sala set and my bookshelf to my new home I think at least the next 4 years, and I still have to go to Makati to get my uniform repaired and straighten some things out with the tailor, and I have to concentrate on losing all the weight I gained during the summer.

Notice how I don't fret about how had Med School is going to be and if I can handle it. I've notived that too, and I think it's mainly because my parents have been through it, my aunts and uncles have been throught it, my GRANDPARENTS have been through it, and I truly believe that whatever my parents can do, I can do better. This is not a claim that I am better than my parents, but I do claim that I at least have 75% of their skill; So why am I saying that I can surpass whatever they have achieved? Well, it's because they're such great parents, that even if I were not as talented or as smart as they naturally are, they've raised me in a way that truly prepared for all the things that are to come, they equipped me with enough knowledge and pure processing capabilities to get me through.

I'm having trouble finding the exact words to get my point across.

I am Farstrider. I am the Storm. That is my motto. I will not let anyone tell me otherwise, I just believe in myself too much; and I believe that I AM Farstrider, I AM the Storm, nobody can tell me there is something that I should or shouldn't do because I truly admire the way my parents brought me up. They taught me to prioritize education above all things, they encouraged me to read Rizal and Plato, so that I may see the world through the eyes of the great thinkers. They gave me whatever I wanted from life, and they helped build my CONFIDENCE. I am not anything else then I am a creature of confidence.

Confidence. Oh how I love that word. On the flip side of that there is PRIDE. It is a strange coincidence that I was born the eldest and also as a Leo. 2 time the confidence, 2 times the pride. The Eldest Son. The Eldest Grandson. The Crown Prince. Do I really carry the family name with me? Should I be conscious of the fact that my actions have bearing on how my family, my entire clan will be seen by others?

I guess what I'm driving towards is that when we think that way, we would think of all the little consequences our individuals actions would have. Heck let's not just think of ourselves as members of a family, of bearers of the family name, but as avatars of humanity.

Existentialism, baby. We see ourselves as representing a greater whole, our actions having bearing on the actions of others, a greater responsibility set on al of our shoulders. We represent how others like us, should act in any given situation. We represent how well our parents taught us, we represent how we were made. It may not be the purest form of existentialism, it has a bit of Determinism thrown in their, but I guess what my final point is:

Would you really pick a fight with a guy through multiply?

Subject:Wanted: Housemate
Time:7:49 am.
Attention, Gentlemen! (I wish I could say LADIES and Gentlemen, but my mom would kill me) We, and when I say we I mean Edgard "Ed" Bionat, Greg.. um "Greg" Teo, and I (Miguel "Mike" Villanueva), are looking for one more housemate for the 2-Bedroom Condo Unit we are currently renting at Cortijos de Valle Verde 2, 21 Firefly Street.

As I already stated, the condominum unit has 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, it has a living room, a kitchen, and a maid's quarters. The basic rent is 20K per month, and plus all the additional fees the grand total is somewhere along 26-27K per month. (Additional fees meaning: water, electricity, internet, maintenance)

My contact number is 09177005707, please txt or call me if you are interested! Please do tell your friends who are interested for a place near the ortigas area about this! We would really prefer it if our 4th housemate was also from the ASMPH, but if nobody from our school is interested we'd take anyone as long as they're near our age bracket, for interpersonal chemistry purposes.

Oh, and the condominum unit is NOT furnished, and we can only move into it on June 14, because it is currently receiving a fresh coat of paint and the wiring is being fixed and etc. We'd have to discuss how we'd split the bill for common pieces of furniture. (Sala set, Dining Set, Washing Machine, Etc.)

Thank you for reading this!
