THOUGHTS

Semi-Fro

The definition of… panget.

Ever since I decided to wear my hair this way, the bus seats next to me have been empty, except when other passengers have no choice but to sit beside me.

Ok lang. Masaya naman ako.

This song leaves me shot through the heart. We’re planning to cover this on our next-next gig:

23 – Jimmy Eat World
I felt for sure last night
At once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I’m still driving away
And I’m sorry every day
I won’t always love these selfish things
I won’t always live…
Stop it…

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

* You’ll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time

What are you hoping for?

I’m here and now I’m ready
Holding on tight
Dont give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
Ill be 23
I won’t always love what I’ll never have
I won’t always live in my regrets

*

From last Saturday night’s listmania with CJ and Chiles:

Name three teachers that changed your life:

1. Mr. Joe Fabian, Algebra – treats his students like his own children. tough taskmaster. taught us not only algebra, but values like respect, both for others and self. i’d say he changed my life because he was the first teacher to deliver a lesson to me about real life and not just something academic. and that there are lessons in life to learn behind each math lesson.

2. Mrs. Lourdes Reyes, Values – our senior homeroom adviser. again, treats her students like her own kids. during a troubled time in my life, i took it out on her, but she hung around and helped me deal with it. a strict teacher with a compassionate heart. treated everyone equally, the smart and the stupid, without disdain or negativity. she changed my life because simply because she made me see the right way to deal with any problem in life – facing it, and that was precisely values education is all about – guidance more than teaching.

3. Mr. Bolet Calleja, Programming Concepts – a college teacher from APC that built my programming foundation. he instilled in us logical thinking vital for a programmer/developer. his patient teaching and open personality made him effective in teaching us a cornerstone for my IT career. if it wasn’t for his basics, i don’t think i’d be making a living in the IT industry. most of all, being a student of his class made me realize that thinking inside a box won’t really get you far. that i think is enough to change my life, besides getting me the job that i have right now.

more from Saturday night’s lists when i remember them. for now, i think i should get some sleep.
