"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

random rants

"My recipe for dealing with anger and frustration: set the kitchen timer for twenty minutes, cry, rant, and rave, and at the sound of the bell, simmer down and go about business as usual" --Phyllis Diller

there's a book fair nearby, there's a jeans sale... and i'm still waiting for money to come. this is it! life!

i want to go to the book fair, but as my roommate would say, "if you wanna be depressed, you go there..." well, she's so right. if i go there, my senses would be feasting on the books i'd see... if i go there, i might find at least one book i'll really like... if i go there, i still wouldn't be able to buy whatever book i'll really fancy. i need to save if i don't wanna starve. my roommate is right (do i really have to repeat that?): if i go to the fair, i'd only end up spelling frustration and depression in big capital letters.

suddenly, i feel so broke... (*deep sigh*)

uncle sam is a bully and a terrorist in police uniform. and why should we care so much about what those U.S. warfreaks think of the philippines?*** it's their stupid war, which speaks a lot about them, too. they've been treating us like sh*t with their subtle and not-so-subtle ways. this country's president is their puppet, and just because the puppet suddenly seemingly have an artificial intelligence, now they're going to think we've backtracked on the fight against terrorism. we are still against terrorism, it's just that they are arrogant freaks and their definition of terrorism is not universal (let me add, their definition of terrorists does not include themselves...what a crap). in the first place, this country shouldn't have joined the coalition of the willing and sent the troops there. humanitarian mission, daw...lokohan tayo some other day! that one life they're talking about means the world to at least eight more filipinos, and saving that life is part of this country's threads of sanity. right now, preserving our sanity is far more important than minding their icky pride.

***our country's drowned in debts and they're holding us in the neck? is that why we have to be part of their war until the terms of the treaty end? is this enough reason to simply allow the beheading of a filipino? we are but poor people thrust into the war of rich and arrogant warfreaks.
