Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.

Due to boredom, frustration, loneliness, and my inclination to attend school, I searched schools that offer online courses here in PH.. Sadly, I can’t find one. So I have to search internationally and came across with these so-called Raffles College of Design and Commerce and Stratford Career Institute that offers online schooling. My heart went “badump, badump~” as I take a look of their website. I was so thrilled/ excited when I saw that they both offer Interior Designing! I immediately inquired to both schools (I personally think that it was just for fun).
But after two weeks, I received this:
SCI sent this and pre-approved my admittance to their school. They sent me their course program, the merits they give and all that. I was so happy until I saw the enrollment form indicating the tuition fee that I have to pay, the amount was literally jaw dropping. I was expected to pay less that 30,000 PHP ($700) for my admittance. My heart broke when I know-for-a-fact that I can’t pay that much for my admittance, it’s too much for my part, y’know~ But I have to thank the effort of the people who sent this, I deeply appreciated this opportunity.
P.S: Raffles College of Design and Commerce(RCDC) didn’t reply, boo for that :P

I want this on a shirt~
This is somewhat the summation of my life as of now. Bale, sa ngayon, I stopped school, shut my self in the house, PAL - palamunin, at laging sinansabi: “Oh ano na?”, “Hay, buhay!”,or “Argh..hindi ko na alam ang gagawin ko.” sabay—
Wala na akong magawa sa buhay ko. Ayoko maging pabigat pero HINDI KO TALAGA ALAM ANG GAGAWIN! :( Ang dami kong ‘SANA’ sa buhay:
SANA tumuloy na lang ako ng college…SANA ang pinoproblema ko ngayon grades lang at hindi itong lecheng low self- esteem ko… something like those.. Gusto ko sanang mag-apply ng work kahit sa fastfood chain lang, kaso hindi ko alam ang gagawin. Gusto kong magka-work through referrals, pero wala akong ‘connections’. Gusto ko mag-train sa TESDA, kaso hindi ko alam kung paano. Gusto ko mag-vocation, kaso gastos na naman.
I TRIED BUT IT IS NOT ALWAYS WORKING OUT. Tapos, iiyak ako.. Sinubukan kong mag-apply online for ONLINE COURSES IN COLLEGE, kaso wala akong mahanap na nag-o-offer ng course that interests me. Ayoko ko namang kumuha ng course na alam kong hindi ako mage-enjoy, noh.
May isang course na gustong gusto kong kunin, ARCHITECTURE~~~ but there’s a big BUT; I don’t like Math, more like, MATH DOESN’T LIKE ME. In my high school days I struggled so much in my Math subjects (esp. Physics), even in my college days. Pero I must admit, I enjoyed Business Math (Math4B yata) and Financial Systems (IT311, basic accounting, naka-99 kaya ako nung midterms namin~lemme brag for once..haha!) but I don’t like business. Kaya I turned to other options na ang laki ng relevance sa Archi— Interior Designing~~~but again, there’s a big BUT; because, from what I know, Interior Design students are flashy (I don’t mean the negative way, but for me ‘sosyal’, ‘elite’), and I am not one of those, I go out wearing these—
my staple look, not even close to this kind of look—
from my point of view, I.D students are so chic when it comes to fashion. And I think I can’t afford the fees of an Interior Design student. We’re so middle-class family.
I try to become unique or sometimes avant-garde but I’m afraid of criticisms. MY SELF-ESTEEM IS SO FVCKING LOW. I become embarrassed easily. I’m socially awkward. I am easy to persuade. I AM A FICKLE MINDED PERSON. Basta, magulo. Kaya nga HAPHAZARD MIND eh. Randomness.
When it comes to interior design, I love colors but I like minimalist designs.
I like gigantic glass windows all over the house but it is substandard when it comes to security.
I like enormous houses but I don’t like to clean it every day.
I like to be fluent in speaking but I don’t like reading books for practice.
I like to have many friends but I’m too socially awkward. They tend to have the impression of me as a snob. For Christ sake! I cannot start a conversation unless you’re a long time friend, at mas lalong hindi ko alam mag-end ng conversation. =.=
I know to my self that I not a dumb student. I can do better the more you provoke me as long as the line of work interests me. But I don’t know if I can do the same when I’m in different culture/atmosphere. I’m slow in adapting to culture. HELP ME!!
That was the first thing that came out of my mind when our landlady called me out of the house to talk about the state the house that we are renting. She lectured me about the growing “FOREST” beside our house, and I said to my self, “Ghaaaad, This is so fvking embarrassing ”…”Why does she have to see this situation and lecture me about it?!. I I have all the time to use for cleaning up this mess, why, WHYYYYYY?!” and then I apologized again and again until she stopped complaining. After that incident, I am, until this moment, not able to go out of our house because I’m too embarrassed to bump onto her. I have no face to show :( As I shut my self in the house, I realize that she is right. The surrounding of the house is a “FOREST” in the making:
She hired some men to clear up the “forest” so, some of the parts are cleaned up.
But, if I have the guts to explain to her of why the place turned out like that? It’s because of the ONLY reason I have: My huge fear of frogs and I believe they are living in that area. “Frogs are pretty numerous in this place, you know~ “ *Sigh, up until now, her words are still ringing in my head again and again, and every single time I say to my self: ”This is so fvking embarrassing!”
Inquiring - Filling up forms - Jump shot.
Family Picture before gearing up. Papa, Kaye, and I chose Package 1 (3 zip lines, rappelling and wall climbing).
Yup, we’re reading to go~
First Station - 400 meters long, 250 ft. above the ground.
Pretty much a candid shot.
The view from the 1st station. ALL TIME FAVORITE!
Going to 2nd station - around 250 meters, 200ft,
I guess. But the fastest zip.
Wall climbing under the scorching sun. I opted to go first in rappelling and in zip line #3 (the slowest one,
you can even put makeup on, haha!) so I don’t have personal shots :(
Goofing on the hanging bridge.
A candid shot I got~
Aaaaand.. The event photographer:
a photo from Nicole (refer to 3rd to the last picture) while I, took their shot on the bridge.
I happens we have a ‘Blue Moon’ in the PH, so I came to do a post. (“I do blogs once in a blue moon.”)

sorry, late reply, I think~ umm.. 3rd year regular na sana..
