Let's Paint

Last night, Aaron and I were on Skype and while I was doing nothing, he was working on his school project. I soon saw it fit that I join in. LOL. And so, I painted too. :D


That wasn't his project though. It was just something he painted from the left over acrylic he had; he didn't want them to go to waste. I don't think you can see it as clearly but I painted a handsome mustache on myself whilst waiting for him to finish. HAHA. DERPY, IS IT NOT? :))


I love silhouettes. I refused to paint anymore for fear of further ruining it. LOL.


Isn't Ron's apple tree so pretty? :3

Well, I guess that's all there is to it to this post. :))
I just really wanted to put them up cause they turned out so lovely. :D

Job interview's in an hour.
I've decided to bail. :))

Oh So Nerdy

If there's one thing being in Computer Science has taught me, it's how to see failure as an opportunity to succeed. Just yesterday, I realized that I'm no longer as easily intimidated by failure as I used to. You can learn from it and grow from it when you know how.

"I have not failed. I have just found 1000 ways that don't work."
Thomas Edison said that. He is, no doubt, a brilliant man but I favored him less when I learned out about the Tesla-Edison feud. BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THAT. Haha. I didn't until last year during Physics. :))

Anyhow, unimportant.
How are you doing today? :)

I'm a happy penguin cause I have no classes today. Isn't that swell? :D
I can stay home and do stuff I've been too tired to do. :D

As for school, things are marvelous.
For Algo class next Monday, I'll be performing a dance number with my group mates.
We cast votes if we wanted to perform or to code a program for the second part of our midterm exams. My class opted to dance. It was unanimous but, in hindsight, I should've voted to code instead cause it now seems heaps easier to study.
NERDY JOANNA. Haha.

The dance is supposed to look something like this.



NERDY DANCE. HAHA.
This will be fun, I'm sure.
Good thing it isn't going to be performed live. Otherwise, I think I might just collapse dead from embarrassment. :))

I'll have the video up when it's ready and when it is, I will have ventured past the point of no return. I shan't ever be able to show my face in public again. HAHAHA.

Here are random photos from this week cause I don't feel like blogging anymore. :))


JASON AND I ARE GOING TO WATCH AVENGERS LATER! :D
I still need to find something Avengers-related to wear.

Monday morning, I have a job interview. :D

Bipolar



In regards to my -- for lack of a better term -- emotional well-being, this week has been an epitome of polar opposites.

I've been sad and I've been happy, elated then glum. I don't understand it.
Have you ever had moments like this in your life? Cause I do, more often than I think I should. And it's beginning to concern me, lol.

Although, I must say that I've actually had an exponentially good week; tons better than I had made it sound. In fact, it's easily one of the best weeks I've had for a while now. I had nothing bad happen to me and I had nothing that I should've been directly sad about. I just somehow manage to bring all that sadness upon myself.

Toggle Nonsense

Anyhow, I'm now off be all studious and stuff.
I'm doing real good in school and I want to keep doing good. :D

This weekend, I'm going to make White Paper Peonies and A Jellyfish in a Bottle cause one simply can't have enough peonies and jellyfishes in their life. HAHA.

Top of the evening to you. :)

Request Update

Done! :D



And now, to practice programming.

The Quiet Place



It's beyond words, at least beyond that of mine. It's a poem that I think everybody should hear so people can learn to be comfortable with loneliness, so they can see that it isn't as bad as they think. And perhaps, just maybe, less people would be sad because of it.

If you, on the other hand, seem to be anything but alone and would want to be even for a measly minute, here's a place you can go. The Quiet Place. :) But, alone or not, you should still click it cause, in my personal opinion, everyone needs a little quiet time every now and then. :D

Aaaaaaand, if you're feeling down in the dumps today, here's 51 seconds of me making a complete fool of myself. LOL.

I hope you found it more entertaining than it is awkward. :))
Happy face! :)

Oh and,
A HAPPY EASTER! :D

Speaking of Easter, never before in my life have I realized how much I was deprived of as a child more than I did today. Jason and I were out at Gmall and they had this quaint egg painting thing going on and I just got so excited. Insanely even. If it weren't for the tiny seats and tables and Jason throwing at me funny looks, I would have seriously gone for it.

Anyway, I suppose it was a good thing that I didn't. I felt that I wouldn't be able to get to my egg painting without being heavily scrutinized by the public. :)) The only consolation I can say I got from today was being bought cotton candy. LOL.

I will no longer question why people often mistake me as the younger sister. :))

Earth Hour

To start this off,
HAPPY EARTH HOUR DAY! :D

Well, actually, I had meant to write this post yesterday but I couldn't muster up enough of anything, be it the willpower or the strength, to work on it; I was too tried.

So, let me correct what I should and start this off instead with
HAPPY APRIL FOOL'S DAY! :D

But before I get to how awesome my April Fool's Day turned out to be, I shall recall what had happened yesternight.

I attended Earth Hour with Jason, Jasmine and Ace at Magsaysay park. The thing was, before we arrived, I was a tad fidgety as I had Shishi and Thor over at my house while I kept Jasmine waiting for me at her family shop. In the spur of the moment, I absentmindedly left both my camera and my wallet at home. Fortunately for me, Jason had money so funds were the least of my worries. But left with no other choice, I had to resort to using my phone's camera and it frustrated me so.

I suppose I shouldn't feel too bad. Bad coverage is better than no coverage, right? Hahaha. When all else fails, I say make everything black and white! :))



We got lanterns at Php150 each. Green ones for Jason and Jasmine and a white one for me. Ace didn't get one though but 3 was plenty. :D




We were ill prepared. But really, we weren't prepared at all. HAHA. We had to ask around for matches cause how else would be able to light our lanterns up? I approached a nice enough looking family and they happily handed over several matchsticks for our disposal. I was counting on the dry floor so I kindly declined the kind man's offer to rip out a striker strip from his matchbox.

We had our lanterns ready and I was crazy delirious. I could see it. I could see the sky in all its lit up glory.


And then it rained.



If you had viewed that video, you'd realize that there is no audio. Evidently enough, I had no idea how to use my phone. HAHA. We couldn't spark our matches and when I saw that I couldn't possibly fly my lantern in that weather, I felt a deep sense of sorrow. LOL. I stuffed my lantern in its plastic bag and, in a dire attempt to make the best out of the situation, I ran around in the rain and swished through puddles instead. Jason and Jasmine soon followed suit. I ended up walking funny cause my shoes were making these squishy sounds; it felt strange. :))





The rain eventually stopped but Jasmine and I decided to save the lanterns to fly together another day. We want to write our wishes on them. :D

When Jasmine and Ace left, Jason and I met up with Naddy who was also at the event. And along with his friend, Angel, we made our way to SM, with my clothes still soaking wet.

They look a picture with a famous fellow there but I didn't know him. After which, they accompanied Jason and me whilst we had dinner at Dimsum's. :D



I was just kidding about having anything at all to talk about on April Fool's day.
It's been eventless so far.
I LED YOU ON. :>

I guess that's April Fool's to you then.
But no, not really.
... Yeah.
HAHAHAHA.
