Blast from the Past

 Last September 4, 2011, Lyceum of the Philippines University held an educational trip in Bataan for all the students taking history.It's a one day trip filled with laughter, road sickness, food,and of course,knowing the past. 

First of all, traveling to Manila in Quezon City at dawn is hard, so I thought, "Why not rent a room for a night?". So Jenny, my friend, and I decided to rent one, and obviously, we didn't get to sleep that much. Honestly speaking, the room is too small for both of us, we had roaches for company, we can hear neighbors singing in karaoke bars and basically we had so much to talk about. That night, we talked about the project of ours, ate balot and penoy( 'exotic' food in Philippines), made some crazy commercial about biscuits, and share some anime that we like and dislike. The thing that I will remember the most is the moment where I can't concentrate because of this certain cockroach.  I really wanted that roach to die that we even made a strategy just to kill it. She's the tracker and I'm the killer. Basically, she's the one who's telling me where it is, and I'm the one who's going to kill it with my slipper.

Mga Anak ni Tatay Ungas Part 1: BestFriends


    Sa nakalipas na apat na taon, sa mga taong ito ako(kaso kulang sila..) nakihalubilo, nakipagkwentuhan, nakipagsayawan(?!),nakipagtawanan, nakipagbunutan ng patay na buhok, nakisama sa pangaasar kay Clarke, nakireklamo dahil sa mga mahahabang exams lalo na sa Math, Physics at Calculus, nakipagkyopyahan sa lahat ng assignments, nakipagpicturan, nakitulog doon sa mga subjects na nakakaantok,  nakikain(buraot) sa mga baon nila at marami pang iba. Sila ang IV-DIAMOND. Ang aking mga kapatid, mga friends, mga seatmates,classmates and cheatmates.(>W<)
          
Magsisimula ako sa una kong naging bestfriend sa kanila. Si Linell Faye Celiz. Naging bestfriend ko sa Linell nung sophomore year namin. Tinagurian namin siyang Tongue Twister Champion sa sobra niyang bilis na magsalita. Tuwing 1st half ng clase, lagi niyang nilalabas yung Oreo Cookies niya tapos paghahatian naming tatlo nila Shiela(kasama din siya samin kaso lumipat siya ng school). Itong si Linell ay maypagka-batang isip. Para siyang baby ng IV-Diamond. Baby na nasa katawan ng isang dalaga. Bale parang ako yung naging ate niya sa school. Kahit na sa bandang huli, hindi kami nagkasama hanggang Senior year, OK lang. Masaya naman kaming naghiwalay ng landas

The Otaku Side: Another Blog


I just want to inform you guys that I created a sister blog entitled.. The Otaku Side. Obviously, this blog is all about being an otaku, anime/manga reviews, to-watch list, Japan, and a whole lot more... hope to see you there guys...

This is the blog..
The Otaku Side

By the way, there's no post yet.. so just wait...And also, if you want to make a request
to feature an anime in this blog, just put it in the comment box or chat box.. Thanks...XD

Stress Reliever

I want to share with you all the ways that I do to get the my stress away... Hope it can also help you.....





* EAT - I confess, I'm a glutton. I love to eat foods that I like, specially, chocolates. Whenever I eat chocolates, I usually forgot the things that makes me depress. Try it out with your comfort food. But remember, too much is dangerous.





 
 
* READ - I also like to read. I'm a bookworm soI never get tired of reading especially romance or tragic novels. The first novel that I've finished is "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. I've got so addicted to this novel that I've even watched the movie.











 * DRAW - As I have stated in my previous blog, I'm   a wanna-be artist. So whenever I'm stressed, I draw some anime.  I started to draw anime when I was in grade school. At first, I used to watch my sister draw the anime "SailorMoon" and I got fascinated by it. So I tried to copy her until I can make my own original characters even until now. That's why I took Multimedia Arts. I want to be an animator and have a fulfilling life. (this pic is drawn by me.. a fanart of Full Moon wo Sagashite)






First Time Blogger

                                 First of all, I'm going to introduce myself for all of you  future readers...



            I'm Giona Reyes from Philippines. I'm studying Multimedia Arts in Lyceum of the Philippines University. Honestly, I really can't express or share my thoughts properly so I didn't dare to create a blog like this one, but, due to some circumstances, creating a blog is necessary. Back to the topic, I'm the 2nd daughter in my family. A classical novel reader, a 'wanna be' artist, an anime/manga otaku, and a self-confessed YAOI fangirl. Even my sisters find me weird for being an otaku.



            Actually, I'm a really shy person. I really can't express or share my thought properly. I don't really talk to others unless they're the one who'll talk to me first. I have this mentally way back then that is why others have this negative impression to me. As I have stated earlier, I find it hard to express myself to others, and that made me an introvert when I was a freshmen in high school. I don't really have someone to talk to (a dramatic past TTATT) but, as I walk further in my high school life, I tried to be more sociable to others, which fortunately, had a great result. I began to have friends. I met someone who has the same interest, specifically an otaku, as me, and I even became an icon in our class. Oh not the model student or popular icon. I am known for being the "national buraot" of the class( I don't really know how to explain this word. I'll just ask my friends to translate it in English so that you can underdtand). And now, I'm having the greatest time of my life in college. It's not that I have forgotten my sweet high school life, it's just that, college is a new life. It's a new path that I must take, and a new journey that I know I'll treasure.

* Enough of the introduction.. I'll end this post by telling you all future readers, or maybe, followers, "Thank You!" I hope this blog can trigger your interest even as little bit. Even though this blog is only for a subject matter , I think I'm going to enjoy this.. Thanks! Have a great life... (=3=)
