"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."

caterpillar narcissism 101

i learned something cute from one of my labmates the other day. it goes like this...

Everybody hates me.
Nobody loves me.
I guess I have to eat some worms.
Worms? I hate worms!
They drive me crazy.
Crazy? I used to be crazy!
They locked me in my room until I died.
Die? I don't wanna die!
Worms're gonna eat me.
Worms? I hate worms...

...and so it goes. you have to say the words in a childlike manner. i'm telling yah, it sounds cute! it's fit for individuals who have the tendency to have their 'own worlds' -- individuals like me. wait 'til you hear me. mag-advertise ba.


i like taking my own pictures. i feel i look good in pictures if i take them myself. i can also afford to make faces without feeling so conscious. that is why, i adore those cameras with self-timers. i also love my phone's built-in camera because it has a mirror feature which allows me to check if i look fine or not before i activate the shutter with a click. self-timers and mirror features are A-ok with me... and so are the 'review photos' capability of digital cameras. if the on-screen version ain't good, choose delete! heheha.


it's been six months since i last had my hair cut. it has grown so long, i don't seem to know what to do with it anymore. if i have it cut, i might end up not liking it anymore. if i don't have it cut, it'll grow longer and i will not like it anymore. unsa bah... ayokong problemahin.


when i write for my blog, i don't exactly write for other people. it's more like i'm writing for myself because i want to read myself and be able to see what kind of person i am in somebody else's reckoning, as well as keep track of the very thoughts and things that i'm up to. i guess, it's safe to say that there may be no other greater reason for my blogging than 'narcissistic tendencies'. now, who likes to contest?


  1. i know what you mean.
    i cut my hair last saturday,
    and right now i dont know
    if i still like it or not.
    maganda lang nung bagong gupit eh.

  2. you like taking your pics? I bet not as much as a friend. he used to have daily pics and have his friends vote the best pic for the day. he toned down a bit and made it a weekly thing.

    ~just blog hopped :)

  3. Don't worry...

    Nobody can be kinder than the narcissist while you react to life in his/her own terms. (Elizabeth Bowen)

    Good luck para sa haircut. :=)

  4. gEEEmail, kuya sam, di na (naman) muna ako magpapagupit ng hair.

  5. A narcissist is still better than a self-loather, I think. So, okay ka pa rin. :-)

  6. Oist, 6 months na pod ko la nakapa-haircut! hehehe .... waaa ... musta man ka???

  7. as useless, gwapa lang japun, LOLz! unsaon?!

  8. re: the last paragraph...

    ako sad, i blog for myself. not exactly for other people.:)
