to the slumps

speaking of the sorry state i’m in, i’m going to talk about how sorry i am some more. nah. but i’m going down the slumps. i’m not in school and it’s frustrating cause you were planning to finish your 5-year course in 3 and a half years or so. dang. fate has its way of messing your life up and blinding you.

i’m not really, really in a bad mood cause of not being able to study due to financial instability. i’m actually more pissed in smaller terms. cause as shallow as it might sound, i don’t want to return schooling and still have to face PE again, even if it will be the last. i want to finish all the minor subjects already like religion also. ok lang sana kung next sem pa kami indi (bisaya man ko!).. hindi makapasok kasi kahit papa’no, mga major na lang ang aatupagin ko.

oh well, what gives?

since a lot more boring days are in store for me, i’m contemplating (yes, i do have the ability to contemplate–but only on wet times) on learning a new skill or catching up on my reading.

Ladies’ Man
by Richard PriceOnce, Kenny Becker had a barely tolerable girlfriend and a miserable job. Now, unattached and unemployed, he’s cruising bars and massage parlors, sinking into the frenzy and loneliness of the 1970s singles scene in New York.


this book reminded me of the classic The Catcher in the Rye. probably because of the situation of the lead character and his experiences, his ‘angsty’ experiences in the suburbs after losing his career, his prospect wife and maybe his sanity too. searching for some way to straighten priorities, finding a spark and dreaming of fulfilling his ambitions. after i finished it, it’s similar to what i’ve felt with the catcher, “that’s it?” bitin! pero oks na rin. vividly describes the scene of urban life in the eyes of a washboard abs-obsessed Joe in Manhattan. enjoyed the humor too. downright porn in another sense though. what can i say? i’m a big fan of comedy and sex. added with being single and lonely plus i got it for only 50 bucks. need i say more?


“I noticed a movie marquee with an orange-tinted blowup of a nude woman on her back, her neck arched, eyes closed in ecstasy, knees spread and drawn up almost to her shoulders. Her position, the fuck-me look on her face, stopped me cold. Suddenly I realized I was fondling myself. I was standing in the middle of Times Square and fondling myself as if I were home straddling the toilet. I jerked my hand away as if it had grazed something red-hot. What if Kristin saw me? La Donna? The lady from Pinaccle who would then recognize me on Monday? What if… What if… I felt nailed in my shit, my ugliness, my loneliness. Less than human. Not me. Different from every living, breathing person on the street. “Not me” meant “not human,” meant so wrapped up in yourself the the rest of the world is reduced to white sound, background buzz. I reeled down the street burning with horror and embarrassment. I was so wrapped up in my own head, so gone, I was acting like a street schizo. I was a street schizo. That was the act of a street schizo. Two hundred people must have passed me while I touched myself. Two hundred people must have registered “degenerate” in their brains. I leaned against a parked car, my hand to my mouth — blown away. I still had a big hard-on. I remembered a cartoon I saw once; a horned satyr lying on a shrink’s couch: “Doc, I can’t get it down.” ”

i used Blog-City’s file manager for uploading and using the image. yey. hehe. at least, at least.

it’s only thru blogging that i get updated on the latest flicks and thru blog reviews that i can at least fake that i’ve seen a certain movie or some. so c’mmon, write some harry potter reviews now!!! hehe…

what will be will be, bummer.

i loved the movie. i got reserved seats on the first screening. the best out of the 4 for me. but the character development there wasnt so good. lalo na yung pagdevelop nya sa “relationship” ni ron and hermione, not good.i dont think someone who hasnt read the book will really understand what’s happening since it just shows you certain scenes from the book without tackling the really important issues. parang pictures without really a story. but then again pagtinackle lahat, the movie would be longer than 2 and a half hours. lol. but sana naman nagtackle sya kahit konti.

yung quid world cup nga wala pa yatang 5 minutes sa movie e yun yung pinaka maraming chapter sa book. lol.

but id like to watch again. i already found someone who agreed to watch with me ulit. LOL.
