Life is a game show

At least my law school life is. 

Elements of a game show:
1. People hoping to win big
2. Questions getting increasingly difficult as the level goes up
3. People making total fools of themselves
4. Copious display of human hopes and disappointments

See?!?! Law school is one big game show. With no lights, cameras, and gyrating girls.

On Love

“I cannot persuade her with words to love me, to trust me, to be with me. IT MUST BE DONE WITH ACTIONS. She must come to me freely.”

Susan Sontag is awesome. I love her. I love her thoughts on love. I'd love to get a copy of this book (ATTN: friends haha), from which the following sparks of brilliance came.

you learn something new everyday :-)

I've been on Blogger for eight freaking years and I just discovered (like, 15 minutes ago) what this icon is for.

Ako na ang technoidiot.

They say man’s nature is to merge
Wanting, needing to be part of something
How is it possible to lose this urge
And just stop caring?

The earth spins blighted on its axis
Everything becomes a senseless blur
How is it possible to take this crisis
And just stop caring?

Ideals held dear are forgotten in a shrug
Craving to rest from a senseless battle
How is it possible to hoist a white flag
And just stop caring?

We have so much to offer but we’ve grown weary
Of the world’s miseries and spite
How is it possible to look on merely
And just stop caring?

*Because she said she doesn’t care about anything the way she used to. And I didn’t go to class because I thought it was pointless. It was one of those days.


To prove my point.

Renounced Resolutions

And just like that, it’s August. Well, there’s nothing special about this month, I think. It just makes me feel uneasy about the thought of midterm exams, and that I’m too far into 2012 and yet I haven’t done ANY of my New Year’s Resolutions, to wit: 

And I listed them a couple of weeks late.

I promise to do better this year:
1. Reduce petiks time.
2. Quit surfing during office hours.
3. Study at home; work at work.
4. Reduce shower time.
5. Read faster. The faster you finish, the more sleep you get.
6. No more absences!
7. Play more.
8. Save! 

Fail on every single one. Major fail re absences. Barely a third of the semester has lapsed and I have exhausted all the allowable absences in RemLaw, only one left for Nego and three for CrimLawRev. Yes, I’m counting. “Ipinaglaban ‘yan (maximum number of absences) ng mga predecessors natin kaya dapat i-maximize.” I can’t remember who said this brilliant line to me in undergrad. Dude, if I flunk any of my subjects this sem, it’s gonna be your fault. But I can’t make you pay ‘cause I don’t remember who you are. Oh well.
