For them, she is almost perfect and has been living an almost perfect life. For them, this girl carries no problems. For them, she can't ask anything more. For them, she has almost everything life has to offer.
But little did these people know that this girl is not the real girl they have always admired. Deep inside, this girl is crying. For her, life is unfair. For her, she can't trust anyone. For her, she is not important. For her, she is nothing but a mere body with an empty and cold interior.
She is not perfect. In fact she is incomplete. Behind this girl's sparkling eyes, wide smiles and contagious laughters are sadness and emptiness. She cries at night because no one really understands her. She masks the pain with laughters so that people would think that everything's okay. But no, she is not pretending. She is just weak contrary to what others think about her.
Each one of us is like her. Each of us sometimes feels like we are unloved. There might be girls prettier than us. There might be fellas smarter than us. There might be others who are richer than us. But that would not be enough reasons to feel inferior. Each of us has our own dilemmas. Each of us is unique. No one is really perfect... not even close to it.

A friend of mine just graduated last month and hopefully be a successful columnist in a respected newspaper (you know who you are, congrats by the way). Others, like me, are graduating next year, hopefully. Lots of friends of mine are also enjoying their moments in modeling and in showbusiness. We all have different ambitions. We crossed different paths. But we have one thing in common: our dedication in achieving our dreams.
I can still remember the day when I was asked the favorite question adults often ask the kids. I told them that I want to be a saleslady. Yes. A saleslady. A year after, I wanted to be a housemade. A year after, I wanted to be a doctor. And now, I'm on my last year as a pre-Med student. Really, I can't wait to be a certified Medical student. I may not be the kind of kid that Promil would like to get as an endorser, but I have the drive and dedication successful people posses. I have a dream, and I want that dream to be a reality.
But there are a lot who have ambitions, but can't afford it. Yes, hard to admit, but today, achieving your dreams is a privilege. Not a right. I live in Tondo. And I've seen kids doing the best they can just to help their parents, just to be able to eat at least once a day. I've seen them going to school with old shoes. I've seen them walking under the heat of the sun on their way to school while I'm inside an airconditioned car on my way to UST. But like us, they also have dreams. But, for them, it is like turning a glass of water into a wine. They all have dreams and it all ends there. Just dreams.
When I've seen booklets of World Vision in our sala few days ago, I got excited. I am so proud to have a family like ours. We may not be the richest, but we have enough. My dad and my brother are planning to sponsor a child's education. It won't hurt sharing your extra mhoolas to the less fortunates. It won't hurt treating less fortunates at Jollibee. Yes, it won't hurt. Instead, it would heal you.
If you want real happiness, fulfill your dreams with others.

Aspiring med students receieved their NMAT scores this week... I've receieved mine earlier than my blockmates. It was really weird because I don't know what to feel. I've got higher than expected, for someone like me who didn't attend any NMAT review classes. But I think, if I just gave my all, I probably got higher NMAT score. I didn't review... my bad.
Anyway, I'm still happy 'coz luck was still on my side. I really want to go to UST med school... *crosses fingers*

TALLER in more ways
Now I know:
One thing that keeps me going amidst everything and every people who have been hurting me? Amidst every painful stumble in this life's race? It is when I have God at the endline inspiring me to move on.
Really. God is really good.

happy but not happy (random thoughts ulit hehe)
I'm starting to appreciate people around me nowadays.. Sometimes, good deeds are practiced by the unexpected people. Like the manong from the OLES, and the manong from the SRL... hehe! I'm gaining new friends... too bad they ain't got no friendster accounts. hahaha!
Firefox sucks big time... I thought this is much faster than IE??? It sucks really... Plus I can't find a Diner Dash 2 cd. It's so good pa naman. May new batch of costumers na. If before mga 4-5 types (not sure) lang ang costumers, this time sobrang dami... may celphone addict and family na. And you shouldn't sit these celphone addicts and family near the costumers who are not patient with noise. Yung family kasi has a baby and when you let them wait, the baby will cry and that irritates the other costumers. Kaso trial version lang (for 60 minutes) but I was able to open the 2nd restaurant. Huh! I want a Diner Dash 2 badly!
I bought a very cute swim suit. :D Andrey's family invited me to an out-of-town lakad. Actually it is a blowout for Maya's (Andrey's sister) birthday... and it's kinda exciting meeting new faces kasi she'll be bringing her friends with us.

no... don't read this
Super. Duper. Bored.
My computer is unusually slow.
I'm on the 3rd to the last episode of Grey's Anatomy and I can't get enough of them.
I finished the two boxes of Dewberry Cookies in two days.
I washed the dishes this lunch.
I'm watching TV Patrol right now.
I'm... ahmm... damn it. I'm too bored to think. I have no with-sense entry today. I am too bored.
