This is just a Quick Post. It is May already, and damn, my last post was on March! Anyway, I still have work to finish and hopefully by tomorrow everything is ready for printing. I should hurry now. And when the month of June comes, I’ll be having loads of time to write. I just can’t wait.
I’m really sorry for not updated for almost a month. I have been REALLY REALLY REALLY absorbed with personal and college stuff. To tell you honestly, I think my life is spiraling out of control. I don’t know…I can still laugh about it though. I can’t focus well, I’ve noticed. I can’t put myself to do one thing at a time. I also feel empty…I’ve read that maybe I’m going thru what they call “early-life crisis”, which is damn crazy.
BAD NEWS: My memo.card for my camera has recently gone locco. Damn it, I have loads of photos that I still haven’t uploaded in Tumblr and to my FB. Sad, really. I’m planning to buy a new one tomorrow or on Thursday.
OK. OK. I can’t promise to update again, but I will try. I checked my Site Stats and, my God, there are a lot of people viewing me in a week. Thank you, viewers!
Nothing to post here. I’m totally busy. I need to do final requirements for my oceanarium thesis. Plus I’m pretty exhausted. Actually, I don’t know what to do now. My head is cluttered with stuff.
January 7. The airport has been a favorite establishment of mine. Been travelling for like half of my life, and I’m not going to get sick of it. I love travelling. And hopefully, after graduation, I’ll fly back to Singapore or get a job in Paris, France!
Anyway, I went to the airport because of someone important in my life.
Busy. Really busy. I was able to meet up with our thesis professor. Thank God I was not late. I showed him my floor plans and elevations of the proposed Oceanarium. Before meeting him, I was pretty worried about the quality of work. But when he saw my plans, he told me to finalize everything before January 4. Well, that was encouraging enough.
Anyway, I need to go back to my bedroom and do a little editing for the school publication. I’m planning to write one more poem and another story as contribution for the upcoming literary portfolio.
It was almost night when I remembered that I have to take a photo for my 365. So I went out, hoping that I’d find something interesting. And, yes, I did. I noticed our brown aspin pup sleeping next to an empty Carlo Rossi bottle.
2:365 In Rome I Prayed
The rain was spoiling everything. But not the people’s faith. Catholics from parts of the world gathered at the St. Peter’s Square to celebrate Easter with Pope Benedict XVI. Though I was really tired to stay up late and continue to watch the Mass on TV, I consider myself lucky enough to “attend”!
1:365 Taillights and Fast food
It was already 1:00AM when the midnight Easter Mass ended. My sis, my twin brother and I went home; my twin’s the Innova driver. When we arrived home, my sis said, “Let’s eat out. Jolibee and McDonald’s at Lopue’s East are now 24/7.”
So, all of us hurried back to the car. Before we were out the subdivision gates, we prayed (for the first time after months) for safety. Jim, my twin, is not yet an excellent driver…so yeah, it was really necessary that time. It felt like more of an adventure than an ordinary road trip.
After some time (it’s approximately a 30 min travel), I kindda noticed that Jim was driving slow. My sis, Ela, noticed it too. But Jim
said he was going fast as usual. He mentioned the speed, and yes, he was fast. Maybe my sis and I were just a bit afraid for our lives. Or maybe it was our first time to let Jim drive “in the dark”. Lucky for us, there was not much activity on the road to Lopue’s East.
When we finally arrived at Lopue’s East, Jim roughly parked at Jolibee. A motorcyclist saw this and laughed, he really looked like he was pretty entertained. Then, we got off the car. Took our orders and drove back home. In the car, the scent of the French fries was everywhere.
I was sitting on the passenger seat when I took this photo. See how dark the road is from our residence to Lopue’s East? You can only notice tail lights, there are no streetlights halfway.
I know when the new college semester opens, I’m going to get really busy. College life is always like this. I probably won’t have enough time to open my internet accounts anymore. So, luckily, I came across this 365 Project in Flickr.com: take a photo of yourself/something that would represent each day of the year. I know I may be kindda late to start this 365 Proj, but the idea is so great that I think I’ll regret it if I don’t, at least, try it.
I’ve decided to post my 365 Project entries here in WordPress (and also in my viscountjan.tumblr.com). I’ll be posting not only photos but also poems (or very short journal entries) for a specific day. The new semester would be very tiring and, with this 365, I would really be aware on how I spend my time and how productive I am.
I’m planning my 365 now. Hopefully I can officially start tomorrow. So, yes, good luck to me!
I’m being experimental and curious about this WordPress. I like writing stories and blogging. Currently practicing photography and improving my drawing skills. I like posting original stuff and will update this blog as possible as I can.
Anyway, I have to eat my dinner. In case you’re reading this, you can follow me at my http://viscountjan.tumblr.com account for now.
