After rereading my crush's emails to me for the past two years, I'm reliving the joy and the pain. *sigh*

I wonder if anything will result from my life. Then again, it's only two years. At least I'm luckier than Benj... I mean some people I know. =) Then again, someone has a crush on him...

Perhaps the biggest controversy at school right now is the school's decision to ban "The Vagina Monologues". Idiots. The vice president, who didn't bother to read the script, consulted with only the theology department. She didn't bother to ask the English department, the Filipino department, or even the Fine Arts department. What do they know anyway? They're just people involved with the arts and literature... which is what the play is!!! It's actually been discussed with my block for quite some time now. I only brought it up now because it came out in the school paper, the Guidon.

When I read the article, it brought back memories of my time working as news editor at Xavier. Free speech is something deprived from students, even until college. Anyway, if something like that happened in Xavier, I can just imagine the reaction our editor-in-chief would have. He would be pleased as something was happening. We'd have something to write in our school paper that would draw the attention of students and alumni alike. Whether it's good or bad publicity, it doesn't matter as long as there's something happening. I couldn't help but recall that as I read the Guidon in utter boredom today.

I hate my parents, my mother most of all. For the past two days, she's been ordering me around, as usual. Mary wanted me to search the Internet for her VISA forms. When I couldn't find it, she ordered me to look again. The problem with some people is that they think the computer is some magic box that fulfills their every desire. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If computers did what we wished them to do, then companies such as Microsoft didn't have to exist anymore.

The Internet is misjudged. People think all the answers lie in there. If you have a question, the answer might probably lurk somewhere on the web. The problem is finding it. There's actually too much information posted that it causes problems. Type in one subject and a million responses appear. Which is the one you're looking for? Finding what you're looking for on the Internet is like searching for the proverbial "needle in a haystack". Sure it's there. I just wonder how long it'll take you to find it.

Isn't that statement enough to describe my day? ^_^

On a positive note, finally heard from Arianna today. I also got Joy, Izza and Rain to go to CCHQ. As usual, they were slobbering all over the place.

Also, today was Karla's birthday. Had to rush to Red Ribbon to buy her a cake right after Japanese class. Also saw Steph today although she didn't really say a word to me. *sigh*

It's strange but it's only now I'm remembering all the things I should have remembered days ago...

For one thing, last Saturday I experienced one of those urban ironies. I went to a Mister Donut shop in Makati and guess what they were serving? Danish, bread, and every other stuff except donuts. -.-

I have several projects due and I still haven't done any of them. There's our Sci10 report, our Psychology self project, and I'm sure my term paper is going to be due on March.

I only had two classes today, Economics and Arnis. Our teacher told us yesterday that we wouldn't be having Pscyhology but Danton didn't inform us that he wouldn't be coming to class today. Grrrrr.

Oh yeah, my interview with Krizelle is scheduled on Sunday at 1 pm. I still haven't gotten my CD-ROM fixed and my fanzine still needs a lot of work. As if I wasn't already loaded with activities...

Not much to write about today. Went to school, attended my classes, then went to my field trip at the Mental Institute. Nothing interesting really happened. Didn't see Steph or any other person that caught my attention. When I finally got home, I got some much needed sleep and watched Hunter x Hunter. Oh yeah, my CD-ROM's broken again, just after having it fixed last week.

Isn't it obvious I'm having symptoms of depression? =)

P.S. Had to retype this again since I accidentally hit the post and publish button when I was working offline.

I'm depressed. But not for the reasons you might think.

Yesterday was a mixture of blessings and curses. I left the house as early as 8 am and didn't come back until early the next morning. I was busy playing Franco's home-brewed RPG and then went to Jobert's party. Krizelle cancelled on me so I still have a floating fanzine...

That's not why I'm gloomy though. I finally got a reply to my email from Steph. Found out that her grades are failing among other things. *sigh* Steph's in a bad mood and I can't help but feel it as well. I wish I could comfort her and lend her some aid but I know she'll refuse. There's nothing I can do to cheer her up. I feel so helpless. =(

Of course Steph's not the only one who's in danger of failing their subjects... And I still haven't found a replacement for my cellphone. Those are superficial things though compared to the fact that you can't help the people you care about.

Which reminds me, I think Cydz still hates me. She was asking a few days ago for help in her Java project and I offered to loan her a Java book. She hasn't replied. Oh well. When you try to do good things, people think the worst of you. Somebody should change the system. *sigh*
