The Different faces of me



Which of the pictures above is the funniest? ugliest? You’d be the judge. Goodluck.

It’s Christmas Break


I’m glad that classes already ended for the Christmas break. I have not yet been pressured academically for this semester, but I know that after the break, for sure, everything will get me pressured. Exams will come one after another, requirements will simultaneously be given by our instructors, reporting will be assigned, and a lot of papers need to be submitted. Whew.

For the moment, I am enjoying my free days–being at the ILC for my duty as a student assistant and at the same time availing my free use of internet here at the counter while assisting some students for printing their files. And since I am facing the computer, I am on-line most of the time. I do entries for my blogs, though not everyday.

Most of the students in UP Min are now in their hometowns. I chose to stay here for a while to have an additional hours of work coz I only get paid if I worked for a certain number of hours. One more thing is that I don’t have plans of going to my hometown. Besides, my family will be spending the rest of the season in Davao. We’ve been celebrating Christmas in Davao ever since I’m younger. Our relatives mainly resides here, by the way.

Lastly, I want to consume what I’ve paid for my rental. It costs Php 700.00, therefore I must not be on a hurry to leave. I mean, I have to use electricity and water to satisfy what I paid. My landlady is cruel, really. I really dislike her. She’s such a dragon.

Doing it later

There are a lot of things I am thinking that must be accomplished using the computer. Before I sit down and face the monitor, I list those things on my mind in order not to waste my time the moment I start to use the computer–whether for typing or doing research on the internet. The things to be done must be completed before I ended using thecomputer.

However, when I’m already in front of the monitor, the things that I must do are usually postponed because temptations are calling me. I mean I do a lot of browsing first than doing what I planned to accomplish. Like for example, when I’m on the internet, I do not directly go to search engines to have my research. What I frequently do is to open my accounts (yahoomail, friendster, multiply, IM, etc,) and be hooked there longer. I browse to every site I visit, to every friendster profile I encounter and to any websites I want to surf. I also upload pictures from my flash drive to my multiply or download songs and lyrics. By the time I get bored of what I am doing, that would be the time that I start doing my research.

On the other hand, if I’m only using our PC (with no internet connection) to do paperwork or to do something that I want to get done, I found myself playing games, or browsing pictures, or even just listening to music. When I come to realize that I have consumed too much time for unnecessary things, that would be the time that I begin to do my work. What about the output of my work?? Well, it’s frustrating and one can tell that it’s a work of cramming.

Furthermore, my mind will work faster when I cram because I get pressured. I feel lazy doing things when it’s not near the deadline yet. The urge is not coming unto me until I realize that time is running out. I do things later, always later. The outcome of cramming is really not good. I should have done better if I avoid procrastination. Then again, cramming makes me regret the time I wasted that supposed to be the best time to improve my work.

I cannot promise to avoid cramming. But I hope I will do my best to lessen it. After all, I will end up regretting again and again for doing things later.

Why blog???

I’ve never had a blog before. It’s not that I do not have the access to computer and internet but I prefer writing journals to a diary. For me, writing my thoughts and secrets to a journal is much better because I can do it wherever and whenever I want. All I needed is a pen and a journal notebook.

But as technology arises, people nowadays can blog wherever and whenever they want to. I mean they now have laptops, e-notebooks and gadgets where they can write their thoughts and feelings electronically. And even before laptops came, anyone can also access the internet and post a blog because internet cafés are sprouting at different places.

By the time when blogging becomes a trend or something, and I even surf the internet almost everyday at school, I still never created a bog.

I still did not find blogging as a way of expressing my feelings. It’s too public. Anyone can access it and read whatever you have written. I am a kind of person who is too private about my writings. It’s not that I am ashamed of how I write but I just don’t want people to see it. I just don’t like it. I don’t know but that’s what I want—for them not to read my writings.

However, I realized that I do have the decision into what I would want to write and what I would want to share to other people. It’s my choice. Of course I can’t write anything that is too personal or private here if I wouldn’t want to. I would still prefer writing it on a journal. Blogging will be just my way of expressing my feelings in a different manner.

If I have time, I would want to update my blog. I do update my journal if I want to but sometimes I feel lazy that and I wont scribble. Anyway, my journal is only found somewhere in our bedroom. It’s only when I remember important happenings for the day or for the week that I write. If only I do bring my journal notebook everyday, then I will be able to update it. Too bad I can’t. Bringing it and writing on it seems to be embarrassing especially when people will see me. They may tease me or whatever. And I don’t want that to happen. I would rather do a blog. This way, nobody will tease me, I suppose. Besides, I am online almost everyday, so why not do a blog then??

For the moment, I want to think of my blog like my journal where I can write my feelings and whatever. Furthermore, I prefer not to tell anyone about my blog so that nobody will be able to access it except me. If ever somebody read this blog, then there’s no way I can stop you. Just don’t spread the url…(winks)
