friday was pretty good. after an open forum, which was an eye opener for me and as well as viv, meb and jos. (more on that later) i had to meet hosai to start os. sherwin explained some stuff and yeah. we went to the snow party at the union uni. it started out as dead and turned out to be so much fun. viv left early and sherwin danced, but meb jos and i full on danced, there was fake snow and we started the party as in the first dancers, kinda embarrassing but it was worth it. meb requested r'n'b and the rest was cool !!! it was really great

went to shops today, wanted to go out and do stuff, couldnt be bothered starting uni work so came with them to look for my (senior high school formal) sisters' dress, but she is deciding to get it made. my brother (junior high school formal) wants pin strip and will not not borrow. ok

yeah watching tv and here is a question ....will you change your beliefs to the person's you inted to marry? i wouldnt....but if u really love them?....i still wouldnt.....

i think i know whats bothering me all week. i feel like i always need to remember something and do something or i forgot something or i need to do something, i feel like im just floating wherever the wind blows me and i dont know where i am going and what i need to do. i think its my entality. i have not done one bit of work for the whole semester and thats what i need to do. i realize that i keep saying i need to do it but i keep going sidetrack. i need to get back on the pen and paper and the books and notes.

its true what they say, u cant really help anyone unless you have helped yourself. its different. its like a blind leading the blind. i try to help but it seems that it doesnt work coz i dont know that i need help myself. now im feeling better, i know that this is what i need to do now. work my ass off ti'll the end of the sem. got it.

weird i realized it not when i was i talking or thinking but when i was still and quite. im not sure. still i went all blank and there it was. and now i feel like i need to sleep. lotsa work ahead for me. 5 subjects (2 core and 3 electives)

so happy that jos brought os stuff today. made me breathe a bit more.

things work out for the best...i think so...thats how God planned it.

tuesday was unbealievable, after a lecture and tutorial for a subject called ummm...something like History Psychology and Philosophy...i has driven and felt that i have so much to say and learn. debates, reasoning and pondering. i love it. but i will not do the subject alone. its ok, im still so engulfed with the desire to learn and be heard. its like one of those things that are clear that i was meant to be in that room. the whole prose and blog, that class made me realise so much more. the other side. reinforced some things i knew all along.

wednesday, we meet jos's cousin. romyl....omg was he good or what, he had been through a lot and learned a lot and on the way and he said them to us. he didnt say his life story, he just talked about life lessons, the conversations was not forced it was so natural, we all spoke and we all shared what we know too. i did not expect that conversation ever. havent had that kinda full bombardment of discussion, ive had those with which you learn one or 2, but this guys keeps coming more, until the canteen had to close. i was so captivated with the words and the wisdom. its like watching oprah, or at church, or a friend/family or experience and self realisation etc....that taugt you something (please, im not comparing them as equals), he was going on all over, so many. i was like, wow. ur so wise. some of the ideas i already know, some are new and i was at the verge of knowing them soon but others were like i have no idea. he learned from books, experience, people. that was great, 2 hours talking at the cafe. omg. after that we parted and we coudnt stop thinking about it (me, jos and amali - everyone else should have been there totally) life. friends. success. people. friends. etc. now i have to remember some of those...so many life lessons in a short amount, he was so good.

i had to go home early yesterday...stomach ache....although i wanted to stay back since i didnt come to uni today. this morning i woke up hearing some crap from my bro in a phone with a girl. it sounded so yukk/shallow. slept till 9 and finished all around chores and stuff around 11. i'll bludge the whole day, class tommorow. decide my final 5 subjects then start studying next week...i wanna get my GPA higher.....cool

tae-bo. i like...keeps me fit.....im so happy im back to exercising. makes so much difference!

did a quiz again...

arvin, your true talent is spatial ability
This ability to visualize objects in three-dimensional space can give you a unique view of the world. You appear to understand how figures can be manipulated and take on new forms. Because of this talent, you can probably imagine new designs easily, including anything from floor plans to page layouts and even 3D product prototypes.
People like you are usually great when it comes to putting together assemble-it-yourself furniture or other household items whether the items arrive with instructions or not. Your spatial skills can also help you understand the finer points of how things work.
Did you know?
People who have strong spatial ability typically possess the unusual skill of being able to visualize objects three-dimensionally.

i was chatting with friends last night and my aunt called. so i had to go and it was about my grandmother. they called back my aunt and i cant hear anything. after a long pause and me just staring at nowhere, i can think i decided to write. i am feeling really bad, i feel so sad. i dont want to hear what they are going to tell me. all i heard was that my grandmother is weak. thats the same line they said before my grandfather died. please god, dont let this be. lola i love you so much. its ok. i can hear some thing. i think its going to be fine. thank god.

well now we have the full story. my gran fell somewhere and she cant stand properly and they needed a doctor/masues and they made it sound like she was dying. why do they do that, the families here in australia were calling each other and phils and finally its clear. i was stressed and scared. praying lola is fine.

flirt call : why do people call and basically throw themself to someone else. yes they are flirting and yes they are determined but isnt that a bit out of bounds. why dont you just write a letter. you know pen paper, better than that lets go for lunch. dont call and disturb me, i might be doing something important and dont need shallow talk. i am not saying, dont call me period, emergencies are of course is fine and the occasional hello from family/friends is nice.
if i dont know you and your trying to know me, dont use the phone, first i dont know you and second i cant see you. im not saying look matters, i want to know the expression in your face when u say the things you say. and with this chatting to a complete stranger is kinda weird. email me first. ok u must think, whats my probelm. who do u think you are. im me and this is what i like. im not snob, well i think im not. i like to flirt..when i have time. but please know when ur being annoying and an inconvinience, write to me and you will definetely get a reply. call and i wont be home.

arvin, your confidence level is high
As a result, you may tend view yourself as a wonderful, lucky, or energized person. However you probably also have your days when you don't feel so hot. After all, you're only human. Because of your usual high level of self-acceptance and belief in yourself, you're generally open and accepting of others. People who come in contact with you likely appreciate this generous nature and may seek out your company.
Your intelligence seems to be the trait that you most value in yourself of the five main traits that affect confidence. You also seem to appreciate this characteristic in others.
Did you know?
Highly confident people are usually optimists who tend to avoid emotional extremes. They also have a reputation for being generous with the people around them.

arvin, you're an Angel!
Just like the haloed and winged guardians of good, you truly have a heart of gold, sweet Angel. Whenever there's a chance to pitch in, save the day or just make life easier for the people around you, you're the one for the job. Click here to get your detailed results...
Angel
Just like the haloed and winged guardians of good, you truly have a heart of gold, sweet Angel. Whenever there's a chance to pitch in, save the day or just make life easier for the people around you, you're the one for the job.
You don't just jump in without planning you use your angelic head to figure out how to do things right the first time, like only the most dependable goddesses can. Whether brainstorming a new solution to a problem, planning a surprise party for your parents, or lending your friends a wing to cry on, you've got the right instincts, so follow them whenever you can. As natural as it is for you to take care of the people around you, don't forget to treat yourself right, too. The best friendships, and loves, of a lifetime tend to blossom when you become your own guardian angel.
So don't listen to those who say nice girls finish last. People have always seen you as a goddess of thoughtfulness and good intentions, and it hasn't slowed you down a bit. All in all, Angel, you've got it made with your glowing attitude and ability to see from on high. So get out there and change the world!

4:30am i went to sleep and woke up at 10am. see i can stay up.

whats with parents, my parents. why can't i wear sleepers/thongs, they think it looks disgusting. i say who cares. i feet need to breathe and the fact that they think its colder than it usually is and wants us to wear 3 more layers of clothing before we go out. i mean its great that they care, but i feel hot.

parklea markets rocks! discounts, cheaper and its totally worth it. people are friendly and not uptight, not like some bonjoua shops. i got myself new bag that looks really nice, shades of blue and really good and thongs/sleeper that my parents agreed that i can wear out without them saying some remark on how it looks bad, kinda looks wierd coz its shiny leather and im not use to it. sister took a break from studying and decided to shop for summer clothes and my parents exchanged some furniture to a different design and size. my bro stayed home coz he needed to make this cd for a party tonight.

people are moving to new houses right now, mostly at the kellyville area. my dad helps move, family friends thing. im happy with where we live and our house. yeah. why move? home is where the heart is and i say im happy here. and my family is happy and this is our home. maybe they are still looking for theirs, in a 2 story house at a bonjoua area. not my problem.

i was gonna post last night but after a whole afternoon of trying to figure out how i will use upsaid.com to make my column, i decided to stick with blogger.com
the dinner was of course yumm but i got a headache and decided to turn in early.
my bro and sis got in trouble again. not for coming home late but watching a movie with the dance group around 2am ti'll 4am. by the time the movie finished they were all asleep. (in our lounge) duh. they were tired and its so late. what made them think that a movie is the way to go.
so today. mum cleaned and laundry, my dad cleaned the car for 3 hours. i formated and installed everything back on and bought viv's present and notebooks coz uni starts again tomorrow (last time that i will go to school/uni for the first day...awww). my bro got sick and slept all day and my sis is studying for hsc trials...
ok trivial stuff there. just wanna sleep after i install the last stuff in this pc. it is running so fast and its all clean. cool.
viv called me this aftenoon but i had to go to church so couldnt really talk. she's bored or something. i dont mind talking when they call me, but i dont call people. just not use to it. but my parents dont like it, they actually forbid it. so i cant talk for long when they see me or hear me. yeah. thats why i dont call. always knew that its a waste of time or something.
i cant believe, uni starts again. whole new adventure! im gonna miss it. not the assingments or tutorials the lectures or work, but the hanging out...seeing and talking to friends. and all the free time i have right now but not much cash. my freedom will be reduce once i start working, less free time but more money. the pros and cons....will it ever balance out?

arvin, you are Right-brained

Most right-brained people like you are flexible in many realms of their lives. Whether picking up on the nuances of musical concerto, appreciating the subtle details in a work of art, or seeing the world from a different perspective, right-brained people are creative, imaginative, and attuned to their surroundings.

People probably see your thinking process as boundless, and that might translate to your physical surroundings as well. Some people think of you as messier than others. It's not that you're disorganized, it's just that you might use different systems to organize (by theme, by subject, by color). Straight alphabetization and rigidly ordered folders are not typical of right-brained behavior.

You are also more intuitive than many. When it comes to reading literature, you probably prefer creative writing or fiction over nonfiction. And when it comes to doing math, you might find you enjoy geometry more than other forms like algebra.

Did you know?

Right-brained people are good at: Sports, artistic endeavors, geometry, writing fiction, recalling people's faces, and acting out stories.

Mattie Stepanek, poet this little kid is awesome. Im inspired!
(seen him in oprah)

Facing the Future

Every journey begins
With but a small step.
And every day is a chance
For a new, small step
In the right direction.
Just follow your Heartsong.

For Our World

We need to stop.
Just stop.
Stop for a moment
Before anybody
Says or does anything
That may hurt anyone else.
We need to be silent.
Just silent.
Silent for a moment
Before we forever lose
The blessing of songs
That grow in our hearts.
We need to notice.
Just notice.
Notice for a moment
Before the future slips away
Into ashes and dust of humility.
Stop, be silent, and notice
In so many ways, we are the same.
Our differences are unique treasures.
We have, we are, a mosaic of gifts
To nurture, to offer, to accept.
We need to be.
Just be.
Be for a moment
Kind and gentle, innocent and trusting,
Like children and lambs,
Never judging or vengeful
Like the judging and vengeful.
And now, let us pray,
Differently, yet together,
Before there is no earth, no life,
No chance for peace.
