"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."

what do you know? i'm sick. i know it's hot but here i am, wearing a jacket that's zipped up to my neck and i'm tempted to cover my head with the hood because i'm near chilling. shyet! i don't even know what's wrong with me but here i am rambling on as if nothing's really wrong. i try not to think so much, i don't wanna be stressed. ha, as if.

my father's just asked me how i'm doing. being the goody-goody (ahem!) and honest (ahem! ahem!) daughter that i am, i told him about my sick status, of course. i told him about how i had difficulty sleeping last night because i was close to chilling and i was afraid because my roommate wasn't around and no one's looking after me. i did not tell him that i took a bath and reported to the lab early today. ha ha, call me obstinate. i'm obstinate. i just told him that i can get by and that i will be well soon. i said 'keri ra oi'. of course, my news made my mother worry about me. my father sent me a barrage of text messages outlining my dear mama's instructions on what medicines to take, etcetera, etcetera. mama is so high-tech, her idea of "texting" is always through dictation. somebody else always has to key in the message for her. that's why she doesn't have her own celphone. hehehe. oh where was i? oh...

suddenly, the fuss. they reminded me several times what to do and what to buy and not to miss my vitamins. i'm bad, i've been missing my vitamins eventhough my supply is good enough to make me start a mini-pharmacy right here in the dorm, ha ha. i said i'll buy the medicines tomorrow. oh well, i'm not sure. i don't want to take medicines and they know... but then, this time, they expect me to comply because it's for my own good. haaaaaaaaaaay.

my kuya's been informed about my current condition and he expressed his intention to visit me tomorrow just to check on me. i told him not to bother anymore because i'll be okay. i later found out he was bent on coming because my father told him so. i'm sure, my mother told my father so. haaaaaaay, i'm loved. what they don't know is that my brother's not coming to see me tomorrow because i told him not to. he he.

anyway, i checked my stock of vitamins earlier and i found out one sad thing: one full bottle of vitamin b-complex + c expired last september 2005. darnz! one bottle of vitamins gone to waste. how come i overlooked something like that?! the bottle from which i've been drawing out (albeit delinquently) my b-complex tablets has expiry date: april 2006 written on it. ah, at least, that's a consolation.

okay, okay. i'll end here. i don't like this entry but here it is.
