The Final Stretch

4 days til predelibs and, uuuhm, let's just say I'm a book shy from graduating. Been sick for the past 3 days (it's been getting worse everyday) and I think it's because I handled some shrimp during the shoot for my project. Yes, just handled, didn't eat any, but apparently, I'm still very allergic to them damn things. Ugh!

I am running out of steam. My poser/crammer skills are on overdrive but I'm afraid my effort still isn't enough.

God, I just want to graduate! Please please PLEASE just let everything fall into place.

Dear friends


If I had superpowers, I'd transport us all to Bora right now! Pero with a bigger budget, swanky rooms at Discovery Shores, all-you-can drink margaritas and yummy yummy burritos from MaƱana. Yum!

Love,
Zee

Back Then



Back then, everything seemed cheery and uncomplicated. In between classes, we'd gab away, people watch, and stalk then-love interests. There were also silly poems, songs, crazy doodles on filofaxes, and a whole list of secret code names.

Back then, we dreamed of growing old together. We'd talk about how our children would be bestfriends, some even lovers (haha!). We'd often imagine ourselves as old ladies still chatting away while having afternoon tea. Some of us even had this silly notion that we'd all live in an apartment which would be built on one of our friend's front yard, our head quarters, our group's holy land.

We are all growing up and taking separate paths. In a few months, another friend is flying off to be with the man she loves, who amusingly was a guy that we stalked years ago (teeheehee!).

I feel sad for promises long forgot. But if you've done all posible effort, it's time to accept the truth. You just have to sigh and let go.

I miss High School, but I'm happy to be the person I am now. Photos are fun to look at, and we'd always have all those silly memories. It's just too bad that because of the circumstances, creating new memories will be a complicated thing to do.

i am sooooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday, February 15, 2008

I am very hopeful that everything will turn out well because I know who I am and I trust the people I choose to be part of my life.

It may appeal to others, but I don't need a book to tell me how to make things work. I don't need to write down an amount on a check to make sure that my financial needs will be provided for. I know that things will fall into place because I trust that the universe will give it to me at the right time.

I have this happy feeling in my chest because the man I have chosen to love tells me he adores me and he will take care of me. As partners, we will make things work, and our life will be swell because we intend to put our backs into it, we intend to go after our dreams, we intend do well so we can live well. We are not getting any younger but I feel that we have matured well over the years.

I need a little bit more work, but I feel that I am already a shadow of the person I want to be. One realization I've had is that I value friendships a lot. I vow to be a good friend and not forget how our relationships have blossomed, and I have every intention to take them along in my journey, just as how we used to dream how it would be. In years time, I can see us all still well-entwined into each others lives.

I feel that I am on the right path because I have chosen to apologize for my past actions. I have made amends with people I have had estranged relationships with. One of them is now one of my closest girlfriends, and I am confident our frienship will blossom even more.

I am ecstatic and I cannot wait for this new phase in my life to come. It will be an adventure. It will be hard, but I am confident I will easily adjust to the situation because I know I am ready. My heart is ready. I can't wait for it to begin.

Confession

Okay, so I watched part of "The Secret" on YouTube and these are the points that spoke to me: (yes, nagnotes ako hahaha)

- Like attracts like
- You are a magnet
- You become what you think about most
- Thoughts become things
- Hold on to that thought you want
- Create
- Take things to heart
- Attract positive people. Attract positive things.
- Affirmative thoughts are hundreds of times more powerful than negative thoughts
- Be aware of your thoughts
- Choose thoughts carefully


I think that the production of the video is WAY over the top. The sound effects, the editing, the life situation reenacments, the author/creator's discovery of The Secret spiel, the 'emanating force field' did not appeal to me. It had marketing mumbojumbo written all over it. Actually, I was cringing the whole time, but I decided to focus on the words instead of the gaudiness of it all.

So, I've decided to be positive from now on so I can finish my thesis. Let's see how this goes.

The Battle Plan

* I decided to cancel my trip to Oz. Given the circumstances, I think this is the most unselfish decision I have made so far.

- Finish thesis: survive consultation, pre-delibs and final delibs, and participate in thesis exhibit (March)
- Submit requirements for lone GE class, PI 100 aka Rizal
- Vacation with family
- Complete clearance from University (April)
- Accept rackets, make jewelry, whore the wares to death
- Attend graduation ceremonies
- Accept rackets, make jewelry, whore the wares to death (May)
- Vacation with friends, if possible
- Throw a Gossip Girl-inspired Grad Party
- Be Lora's bridemaid (June)
- WORK! EARN MONEY! MOVE OUT!

That, my friends, is how it's gonna be. Bow.
