united colors of my birthday

GREEN
My favorite color!
and the color of my fave hangout place Starbucks

reviving my Starbucks Thursdays
(thanks to Catz & Yatz for this photo)



BLUE
A true blooded Lasalista like me would
have been caught dead first before wearing such a shirt
esp in a DLSU-ADMU game!
(good luck with that!)

But you have to admit I look nice in blue !
(sabi ni Sitti! haha)


RED
I may not be that superstitious but I usually
wear this color during my birthday
to usher in more luck and blessings!

this is my BEFORE picture
(before a pitcher of mojito and
shots of "bad boy", whatever that is!)


YELLOW
this is the AFTER picture
well just a few hours after "napping"...
who would want to sleep away her birthday right?!

Look Ma! No hangover!

just a feeling I have

"just a feeling I have..." has been running through my head for the past days! It's irritating coz I don't know the reason why! haha...

Just a Feeling
BREEZE

Just a feeling i have,just a feeling

Just a feeling i have.Would you love me like that?

And if you love somebody else,

will you still pretend you're mine?

Would you leave me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

Sometimes i lie awake while your are sleeping.

I think of all the things that we've been through.

I can't deny suspicious minds,

seeing things that don't exist.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

It doesn't feel the same the way you hold me.

Sometimes you turn away when i kiss your lips.

And if you love somebody else,

will you still pretend you're mine.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling.

Just a feeling i have.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

There are times when words can take new meaning.

And all the sweetest things can sound the same.

And there are thousand ways to say goodbye i haven't heard.

Would you tell me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling.

Just a feeling i have.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

And if you love somebody else,

will you still pretend you're mine.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling i have.

Just a feeling.

Just a feeling i have.

Would you love me like that?

It's just a feeling i have.

Week 17 - Looking for Alaska

As of this writing, I'm still not done with the other book I'm reading (On The Road) and it might really take time for me to finish that one so sue me! I really just had to pick up a new one!


*****

For some weird reason, I like reading young adult fiction nowadays, maybe because I'm getting older or something and just want to relive the past or my life is just turning a little bit mundane or boring or whatever the real reason is, I picked up this one based on a tumblr post I was going through when I was searching for book recommendations... or I'm just making up excuses hahaha

The day I broke my nose

May 5, 2011 will go down in history as the day I broke my nose :(

I was walking - well almost running - up our office stairs when I made a misstep, fell and hit my nose on the step - rocky pebbly cement stair step mind you! I was bawling and screaming, crying and all that - to catch the attention of my officemates... they rushed me to our clinic for first aid... lots of blood...I scraped my shins too coz I was wearing a dress (darn! more scars!)...
I had to voice my fear - I had to ask the nurse - how can you tell whether a nose is broken? So it was decided - they had to rush me to the nearest ER... had an x-ray - and YUP! nasal bone fracture! waaaaa! The attending ENT physician recommended that I have it set then and there so... up to the operating room - I guess you could say for minor surgery? or procedure? -
Darn it! I don't care that I was screaming like a banshee and crying my lungs out! I bet the whole floor heard me! Blame it on the echoing hallways of the OR! hahaha...And to think I had anesthesia - I was conscious throughout the procedure -but still! the last time I had such anesthesia is during a visit to the dentist for a root canal! goodness!

So now I have this gladiator-like face mask cast over my nose with tubes up both nostrils to help me breathe - I need to muster up the courage tomorrow to remove those same tubes: imagine every hospital scenes of fugitives trying to sneak out of their rooms and have to unplug all their tubes before escaping! GAH! I expect to be screaming again!

And you know what other thing I was thinking of... It's a good thing I haven't had my passport renewed! Just Imagine how my nose would look there! HAHAHA

*I'm currently home, forced inside for a week till my next visit to the doctor*
