E.L. James | The Fifty Shades Trilogy

After reading the first book, the first thought I had in mind was: "That's it?" I thought it was just another franchise overrated for its explicit content and a whole lot of nonsense sex. But I can't let myself hanging and not knowing what happens next, so I decided to finish the whole lot just to know what will be the ending. 

It was just last night that I have finished reading the Fifty Shades trilogy and it took me a little more than two weeks to do so. I can't read it in one sitting. I just can't.
It's far too visual for my preference, and the sex is too hardcore. Being, let’s just say, the youngest of the allowed audience. I've skipped maybe… 2/3 of the sex part? I don't know. It's just not what or how I thought or... whatever.

Bipolar Weather and Suspension of Classes

The weather here in Manila is driving me nuts. One moment it's raining super hard, and the other the sun gapes at you like an idiot, saying, "Burn, baby! burn!"

What the fudge, universe?!

Last night, I was praying for a class suspension, because I have two accounting quizzes that I forgot to review for. Luckily (for me), I woke up this morning to find that it's still raining -- Hard. It's kinda scary, though. It's a bummer, because I thought that rain or no rain, I would have to go to school because of the quizzes, unless there would be an official announcement from the school.

Or else this would have happened all over again.

My schoolmates, hovering around because the school failed to suspend classes before we actually left home.
So we would have to go through this. 
These photos were two weeks ago, when I went to school despite the raining and raging winds (and they did not suspend classes early enough to stop me from doing so). Yes, all because I was scared of missing a quiz. Call me grade conscious or whatnot, but I'm a nerd like that. Classes were suspended too late, when almost all students were already wet. Jeez.

I didn't go home just yet, I watched the Dark Knight Rises - and it's pretty AWESOME!

Now back to today. Since there's no classes and it's such a bed weather, maybe I could just lie in my PJ's and watch Adventure time. Or maybe read A fault in Our Stars or listen to Overexposed. Or both? If I'm not too consumed by the bed, then I would be browsing my accounting books. Which is 1% possible. :))

She was this and that and everything in between.


On repeat! :) Yeah, summer's long gone here in Manila, and we're getting a whole lot of rain but who cares? I just can't get enough of summer. This track just reminds me of that beat that you would want to listen to while on the beach.

Catwoman is so Hot. Gaaahd, I want my girl self back.

Who would ever forget her portrayal as princess Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi?

Me? A Princess? Shut up!

I remember her as Princess Mia back in my early adolescent years and she's been my girl crush ever since. With that pretty face and a huge chunk of talent, well...

And now!! Her appearance in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises surprised me to the nth level because (1) It was unplanned, so I didn't research on it, and (2) I am still stuck in her image as Princess Mia. Her role in Love and other Drugs, well I prefer to remove it from my brain [too much sexy time].

Anne Hathaway seriously did a great job as Catwoman. She's perfect for that role. Period.

Nothing more to say. :3

Let 'em go, let 'em fly. Holding back won't turn back time.


Here's the song that I am currently listening to. Maroon 5's Overexposed is one album that I really looked forward to, and now they're coming to Manila for a concert. So excited! Too bad tickets are sold out too soon. General Admissions are still available, though.

Jamie Campbell Bower is Jace Wayland

News is out! Jamie Campbell Bower is going to give persona to Jace Wayland, the hero in the upcoming movie City of Bones. Now, aren't we excited?
EXCLUSIVE: Screen Gems has made its choice: Jamie Campbell Bower will get the male lead in The Mortal Instruments, the Scott Charles Stewart-directed adaptation of the Cassandra Clare novel series. He’ll play Jace Wayland, starring alongside Lily Collins, who’ll play the lead heroine Clary Fray. She has The Sight, and can see both demons and Shadowhunters. Jace is one of the best of the latter. When Clary’s mother is abducted, she is forced to learn about her bloodline and abilities in order to get her mother back. Clare’s series is comprised of six novels and is expected to launch a franchise. The role has been considered a potential star-making vehicle for an actor, and there has been much speculation on who’ll get it. I’m told the deal is being made now for Bower, who is best known for playing King Arthur in the TV series Camelot,

City Of Bones (In theaters!)

It's Official! Starting next year, Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments book series is going to hit the big screen! I am so excited, I am sure this is going to be another movie franchise that will make every teen fiction fans (like me!) itching for a movie to be shown one after the other.

Rumors have it that the final casting for the movie is done already, so let's just hope that there's going to be a display of awesome acting skills and not some lame newbies to give justice to these characters. I really liked the book so I'm praying (hard) that the movie won't be a crap fest. :p

Hoping that my voice could get it right.


I would want to share with you guys this awesome track from Mayday Parade. It's been an old favorite of mine, and what I loved most about this track is how it puts me to sleep while fantasizing about a nonexistent boyfriend who would sing this song if he did something wrong and would want to apologize.

Listen and be amazed - note that MP is not just about booming drums and unintelligible blabbers like what a certain friend told me. Hah!

I am but a blogosphere nomad.

Okay, first things first. Title = Lame. It doesn't even rhyme! Sorry about that.

I've been blogging for a very long time now, and I am pretty much of a blogosphere nomad. Coming from Blogger to Wordpress to Tumblr to Yola to Tumblr then back to Blogger again... Well, you get the idea. So what brings me back? I don't know, I guess that's just how I roll.

I can't get myself to keep all of my accounts, though. So all those sites - I've deleted my blogs even before I start a new one, so no worries (well except for Tumblr which kinda comes in handy if I wanna give my crush some stalking, teehee).

I don't like my address. My last blogger address has something to do with the words "random" and "awesome", and now it's gone! Like poof! Darnit. Whoever you are who consumed my past life: I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN. And the B**** who owns the address reversed - YOU'RE GOING DOWN!!

Nah, just kidding. It's fine, you guys. No worries. Go on with your lives. I don't care. Hunting you down won't make me rich anyway. (But deep inside I am killing myself for leaving and giving up that blog address because I really really really really love that in my address bar.)

Now I'm stuck with Well at least until I decide to go on with my life.
