Uh oh. This looks too familiar. Can it be happening all over again? I honestly don’t know what to make of this.

I’m on a mission.
Can you please teach me not to care too much anymore?
Why? I wish I knew the answer myself. Maybe I’m more different than i thought.
I think it’s a beautiful thing. —— Seeing everyone reminisce about this last year. It seems like 2012 was not the easiest year for many people. Many went through multiple struggles and emotional highs and lows throughout the twelve months - not an easy thing to deal with. But in the end of it all, they’ve risen with an understanding of self and a bigger drive to keep improving. And I think...
To be put bluntly, you were a bitch. (Just kidding, but not really). It started off like any other year, progressing into probably the most frustrating one, and ending in a more settled state. Through all the ups and downs, what I took out of it was that i have a better understanding of myself and what and who I need in my life. I’m thankful for the lows because now I have more...

Earlier this week, there was a moment that happened. It was at this moment that I re-realized what I am meant to do in life.

Josh: Yeah, she's not even 21 yet!
Charisse: How old is she?
Josh: 1992. What's that?
Charisse: That's Jordan.
Melanie: That's me.
Kathryn: That's Jonas.
Mel: So... 20.
Today, we made history. Sayaw made history. —— The sixteen of us have been preparing for this performance for weeks. Whether it be through hours dedicated into practices, or percussion beats meshed together to complete a suite, or dollars donated to completing our inventory, or number of meetings to plan all the details. It’s been a tiring process, most especially this last...
During the last week i have spent in New York with my family, I have learned quite a lot about myself. Both good and bad things. I guess it could be considered a good thing that I understand myself a little better.
Nurse: So I'm going ask you a few questions. Are you Hispanic or Non-Hispanic?
Nurse: Oh. So are you Non-Hispanic-White?
Me: Haha, no.
Nurse: Really? I'm normally not good with guessing what people are...
Me: It's okay, I'm not either.
Nurse: So are you half something?
Me: Actually, I'm full Filipino.
Nurse: Wow, I'm so bad at recognizing my own people.
Me: Haha, It's fine, I get that a lot.
Yeah, I’ll admit it. I’m jealous of you. I wonder if you knew that I’ve been a very jealous person ever since I can remember. She’s lucky - she’s gotten everything she’s wanted. I wish I could be more like her so I could be appreciated. Why can’t I be as pretty as her? I wonder how it would be like if I could get that much attention. Why can’t I...
Did that just happen? I wonder if this is just a spur of the moment thing. Needing options right now. Still unsure what to do with my life. God, please give a sign. I need a sign. I need some sort of direction on what I’m supposed to do or where I’m supposed to go next.
Jonas: What did the chicken say to the road?
Me: Fuck you, road?
Jonas: .... BOK BOK BOK BOK BOK BOK.
Jonas: You know, cuz chickens can't speak English.
Me: You're stupid.
Jonas: No. You're stupid. You think chickens speak to roads.
I’m distracted by the research I’m doing for the Career Fair coming up - doing all I can to try and physically/mentally prep ahead of time. Despite the partial disappointment from it all, I can’t seem to get sleepy just yet. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I’ve been thinking the last few days. About the situation I’m in now - or the one I’ve been in the last...
i'm so mature.

Jake: (after resetting the stage again) Gaaad, I have to start from back here?
Me: That’s what he said.
