In a matter of four days, I'm officially of legal, as in legal age. I'll be turning 21 and I'm planning to celebrate it with extended family since my sister and parents are in the province and my other sister and brother are noe in California.

I was just talking to a good friend how great it would have been if she was here with me to celebrate my birthday. I want to go out on Friday night and cruise at some club with her and have the DJ greet me once the clock strikes 12. Just pure fun. Hahahah... I love it.

I'm still homsick. And the thought of turning a year older is definitely not helping. Add to that the fact that I'm terribly broke right now. I can't wait til pay day. Oh God, there's just too much negative energy in me these days. I miss the times when all I had to worry about was the next day's exam, and the ouotfit I'll be wearing for the acquaintance party or something. Gawd, I never thought I'd miss college this much. Or maybe I just miss my friends? No, I miss the convenience of home and college.

Anyway, I'm still trying to digest 21. Me? 21? It's funny when I was about 15 or 16 I used to lie about my age when I talk to people online or text random strangers telling them I'm 18 or 19 or 20. When I turned 19 and 20, I'd say I'm 21. Now that I'm actually going to be 21 I wonder what my make-believe age is this time. I never intended to lie, it's just something that comes naturally. But I'm not really embarassed or ashamed of my age. At least not yet.

New age, new haircut. That's all. Will post pictures soon. God bless me.

The Rainy Days

It's raining horses and carabaos here in Manila. Well actually there's a typhoon named Egay. It's sad how it's so destructive and all but I'm kinda enjoying the weather. Especially considering the fact that I'm having my time off from work while all the other working people have to brave the fierce winds, heavy rain and dreadful thigh high flood water just to feed their bank accounts. I'm kidding. Who am I to even say this shit? I'm broke! And for all I know, I might go through the same catastrophy tomorrow when I have to go back to the office.

In fact, I already had a taste of this typhoon's wrath earlier when I went to the supermarket to buy groceries. It's just two blocks away but I had to get a cab on my way back because it was pouring and I had heavy grocery bags with me. Not only that, on my way here to the internet cafe, I had to take the stairs from the 26th friggin' floor because the elevators were busted! I didn't know what was going on until I reached the 9th floor where there was water gushing down the staircase. Apparently, they had to park the elevators at the 10th floor because, I don't know what exactly happened, but obviously the rain made its was into the building. How funny and annoying is that? Thank God I live all the way up there! Hahahah... Well good luck to me on my way back.

Anyway, yes, like I said, I'm broke. One of my housemates left so it's down to two. Only two divisions for the bills which means more money to pay for each of us. I am sooooo doing to die. I hate being poor. It doesn't also help that my birthday is a couple of weeks away. Oh great. I'm poor AND old. Just shoot me in the head already.

I whine a lot. I know.

I love Krispy Kremes.

Random Rants

I'm feeling sick. I've been having this unbearable stomchache since early this evening. I already got rid of my breakfast and dinner but it still hurst a bit. I have a feeling it's juat gas. God I hope it's just gas.

Has anyone read Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella? Well, I just finished reading it. I'm not carzy about it but I somehow related to Rebecca Bloomwood's impulsive tendencies. I was imagining myself mentally rationalizing every unnecessary purchase that I make while leafing through the pages. Plus, I'm also in some sort of financial rut right now. I mean seriously, when's the last time I went shopping anyway? When I bought the chucks? That's not even shopping. I went to the mall after work to buy shoes I was already planning to buy. And that's the only thing I bought.

Anyway, it's been raining mad the last three days. I think it was only today when it didn't pour. Half of the city was marinated in flood water.

I have been feeling homesick lately. Actually I've been thinking of going home once I get a time off from work. Oh God, the comforts of being at home with so much time at your disposal not having to worry about bills, work and other adult stuff. I never thought I would appreciate domestication like this. Not to mention my family, friends and yup, even those people I usually don't want to see. Jeez.

Another thing that has been bugging me for the longest time now is... my long overdue, so old story singlehood. Gawd, when's the last time I said I love you to someone romantically? 1978?!

I'm half drunk right now. Went out with friends from work. Gawd, it's been over three months since I last went out, drink and party. It sucks I didn't get to dance my ass off though. Next time?

I gotta go. Wow, it's August. A month from now I'll be turning of American legal age. Am I ancient or what?
