2. 8 things about myself

I just discovered I’m actually 5’3 and a half, NOT 5’4, but I am still in a state of denial.

I used to rap back in High School. Fo shizzle.

I used to do splits. I could lay on my belly & touch my head w/ my toes…to make it short, I USED TO BE very flexible.

When I was in Kindergarten, I shoplifted crayons just to see if I can get away with it!

I love Shawarma, Takoyaki, Shawarma, shawarma…sha-war-maa :/

I’ve always wanted to be a ballerina, gymnast, and ice skater.

I sometimes daydream about being a famous singer/actress. Don’t judge. LOL!

I’m a non-practicing bisexual. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?!

Room Tips: How to organize your accessories and Make-up Collection

Being a girl can be a BIG PROBLEM. Why? well, we seem to have MORE things like make-up, accessories, shoes, bags, body products, hair products, and the list goes on. Having so much clutter in your room can be a huge problem especially if you have very little space. Most of the time, if they are not organized, you tend to leave them anywhere. And so, one of these things may happen:

  1. You might assume you lost the item or you might actually lose them.
  2. It takes you a million years to find them just when you need them most. Thus, you curse at every living thing you see.
  3. Your outfits are crippled (metaphorically)
  4. Your room will scare people.
  5. The saying “Our room is our sanctuary” will be disgraced!

I don’t know about you, but I HATE all the things I mentioned earlier, and they HAVE happened to me. That is why, I took the time to organize EVERYTHING in my room. Now, it’s very spacey, comfortable, and “nice to look at.”

I would like to share how I did my room to all of you. I barely bought anything! I used what I could find at home like:

  • push pins
  • styrofoam
  • containers
  • trays
  • boxes

These are things you can easily find. You don’t have to get a new dresser or a new jewelry box. Just watch my video and see for yourself 🙂

For more tips here is a link to a Blog Post similar to how I organized my things 🙂

Handpicked news just for you! | Just another WordPress site

Handpicked news just for you!

If you’re too lazy to do anything other than sit in front of your laptop or desktop all day and search the web for things to take up your time; wouldn’t it be nice to have something apart from Google, Wikipedia, and YouTube to fall back on?

Well, lo and behold!

I’m working on this E-zine that features posts about entertainment, lifestyle, technology and gaming, and other interesting information that will definitely save you from boredom. It caters to a variety of categories, so, you are free to choose.

It is the shiznit; not just because I post stuff on it, but also because it’s very informative and — I feel like a commercial ad.

Anyway, just check it out! It won’t hurt. I’m asking you nicely. Pahahaha. You might be surprised at what you’ll find there *wink wink* No, seriously.

Alone with My Thoughts

In the absence of rationality we depend on emotions. But emotions are triggered by a variety of things, one of which are hormones that could be manipulated in so many ways; however, tonight,  in my most vulnerable moment I speak my mind; without hesitation or doubt. I will cease to question the thoughts in my head; I will give life to them and as these words conquer me, I will not feel any shame. Because I know that one way or another, I am lightening my load, leaving my baggage, one by one. And so… I write.

I wish time was not a factor. I wish there was no such thing as too soon. I wish I could just forgive and forget the past; that it could be just you and me. I wish we weren’t so frustrated or distracted. I wish a year felt like 2 days; at least the thrill would remain alive. I wish you’re the one, like I always do each time, but this time, it’s going to be true…I can feel it. I want you. Yes, I think I do. Do you know how much? I have no idea. all I know is that there is something in this, and I think I’m into it. Are you ready? I’m not…but what the hell…let’s dive.

Don’t think too much, just let it happen. We are bound to make a million mistakes and find the things that are worth those mistakes. I have made so many, so many I can’t even remember all of them. Maybe it is about time I collect my due. Let it be happiness, and content, let it be anything but just the material things this world seems to sustain on. I want something pure in my life again, something spontaneous, impulsive! Enough about yesterdays, I have learned to treat every now as important and the people I meet significant in my life. Everything happens for a reason, so there is a reason for this night, for this feeling, for you, for me. Reason is not what we really need, think deeper, deeper.. beyond your mind, to your passions. I used to know what it was like to be free, I somehow miss it. I want to do it with you…Because I know I will be safe. You make me feel secure. I don’t know if I like not knowing…but right now, it just feels so damn good.

Truth About Internet: The Boxxy Story

The Boxxy Story.


Video might cause an unusual attachment or

extreme headache & dizziness

The Internet has paved the way to a Revolution.

This is the age of Information Technology!

So maybe it’s time we take a breather, sit down, and look at the whole picture. Sure, most of us can’t survive without the internet and I, myself, am an avid fan of social networking sites, video blogging and such…but the more I let myself in, the more I learn about the real deal. My friend JB introduced me to the whole Boxxy incident that slowed down the internet all over the world because it started the whole “War of the Geeks” thing. Har. I know, I know, it sounds kind of cliche’ but I tell you. If you read on the story by clicking on the blog link I posted on top, you will understand what I am talking about. Here is a video of the whole thing being explained. It’s like National Geographic for geeks I swear. Check it out!

If there’s anything you should learn from this It’s that:

  • The internet is dangerous. It can ruin your life
  • Be careful what you put out there. You might regret wanting the attention!
  • Life is a b*tch

Inception: A Dream Within a Dream

A Dream Within A Dream
by Edgar Allan Poe
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

What is it about you

that draws me near?
Is it your half-closed eyes,
or your juvenile grins?

What feeling must I recognize
to know this is real?
Shall I love, care, hurt or fear?

What is it with my thoughts
that often carries you?
willing my eyes to close
so I might capture your face.
what power do you have over me
that the gust I feel is entwined
with your fingertips?

Soft caresses…fleeting kisses,
Everything is hushed and
my body comes alive.

I remember it all too well.
If I could only overlook these torments,
so my stranded person should recover
I would do so in a heartbeat.

But this heart,
fragile and cynical, have already
fallen victim to your tempest.

You are like smoke
beautiful, intense, but transient.
Slowly, surely vanishing as quickly as the flames ignited.
And if I dare to stroke or embrace it, it escapes.
And my empty hands shall seize the anguish from my soul.

You are my beautiful disaster.

Surely it is tragic, I scoff at the memory
when it all felt so light and giddy
but when my heart begins to hum a different tune,
the barriers, once more, take their spot.
And should I wish this wasn’t so?
I doubt…
For it’s the only way
this old, trampled heart can keep on beating.


It’s June, the middle of the year and I’m at an alley with a dead end. I feel like I don’t know what to do and I can’t think straight. I feel as if I’m trapped in a small room; I can hardly breathe; and I’m waiting…just waiting for something to happen. Every day drags and everything is a shade of gray. Days turn to weeks and weeks into months; and I slowly feel drained; like I don’t want to make another step. I just want to pause, breathe real deep and try to find some sense amidst the turmoil that is my life. I search for any means of comfort, instead, I am left with a cigarette in my hand and my own conflicting thoughts. My enemy is time; I can feel it working against me; my tormentor is uncertainty and it puts me in a difficult situation. I want to move forward but I feel limited. I want to stay put and deal but I feel unhappy. I’m a living, breathing work of ambiguity. I hope that this is just some phase like other normal people go through and I hope that in time everything will just…happen.
