The cover of "Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero" by Rick Riordan

Date and time finished reading:
between 12MN to 12:30 AM, Phil time

-Gosh! I am so addicted now with the whole Camp Half-Blood series and this one belongs to the sequel series of PJatO. I even dismissed/halted my reading of the Inkheart sequel, Inkspell [sorry Cornelia Funke, I thought your book is too thick for me to read in a small amount of time]. So, I chose this one instead, but that doesn't mean I'm not continuing the Inkspell book. After all, I still had that "thing" that once I read a book there's no letting go [though it's effectivity relies on my interest of the book].

This is probably the first time that I had the feeling like a book fan, waiting for the sequel book to come. <--Oh wait, the last phrase from that sentence is like not appropriate. I really can't wait for it. :D

Walang Kasigurohan

0 investigated
Hahay..Heto ako ngayun nagtatagalog, malamang epekto sa pagbabasa ko kanina sa blog ni Jethro, "Mga Pangitain ni Jethro." Sa totoo lang hindi naman talaga ako ganoon ka interesado sa teleseryeng Imortal. Siguro ang paglitaw ng karakter ni Jethro o marahil ang blog niya ang nakapag-udyok sa akin.

Pero ang post ko ngayon ay hindi tungkol sa telerseryeng iyon. Wala ako mata-type tungkol dun maliban sa blog post na nabasa ko kanina dahil hindi naman ako masayadong nanood ng tv ngayon. Ito ay dahil sa nagbabasa ako ng isang ebook sa laptop ng aking nakatatandang kapatid. Marahil ay "lumala" na talaga ang aking pagkahilig sa mga aklat dahil nararamdaman kong nais ko talagang sundan ang kwentong iyon (ng aklat at hindi ng Imortal..haha). Ang binabasa ko pala ay tungkol sa mitolohiya sa Gresya at marahil sa Roma din. Kung may nagbabasa nito at kung ikaw man iyon at kung ikaw ay mahilig sa aklat, sigurado akong mayroon ka nang tinatawag na hunch kung ano ang aking tinutukoy. Pinamagatan ang buong serye na Camp Half-blood na maryoon ding parang sub-series--ang Percy Jackson and the Olympians (PJatO) at ang ika-2 ang Heroes of Olympus (HoO). Sa ngayon ay binabasa ko ang unang aklat sa HoO, and The Lost Hero.

Masyado na ata akong nadadala sa aklat dahil tila nakilimutan kong hindi pa pala ako nakapagpa-enrol para sa second sem. Marahil ay hindi ko ito kasalanan talaga kasi wala pa nga naman grades na ini-release ng aming guro. Siguro ay kasalanan ko rin dahil kahapon pala sa hapon ay nandun sa college namin ang yaong guro at nagpa-note lang ang aking mga kaklase, mula sa kanya, na nagsasabing sila ay nakapasa at maaari nilang makuha ang subject na pre-req iyon. Pwede pa naman daw na ma-enrol kahit hindi kumpleto ang mga grades sa mga subjects na kinuha last sem basta't may grades ka lang sa mga pre-req subjects o isang note kaya mula sa guro na ikaw ay pumasa. Sayang nga naman ang pagkakataong pinalampas ko dahil nagkataon pumunta ako sa school kanina at wala siya. Hindi makakarating ang aming guro sa araw na ito ayon sa schedule ng mga guro nakapaskil sa lahat(?) ng pintuan sa aming departments.

Marahil ay sayang iyong napalampas kong pagkakataon. Ngunit, regarding na sa araw na iyon ay marami akong inasikaso at kung babalik man ako sa hapon ng araw na iyon, siguro ay magkakasakit ako ngayon. PAGOD na PAGOD talaga ako kahapon. Akalain mong nilakad ko ang parang half-km halos pabalik-balik? hahaha..Hindi ninyo siguro masukat-akalaing magagawa ko iyon kung makikita ninyo kung gaano ako kapayat. Pero kung kilala ninyo ako, ahw, hindi na kayo magtataka sa isang taong nakapagtakbo ng 5km sa Milo Marathon.

Isa pa pala, parang nadismaya akong sa mga na-DL kong mga videos ngayon. Ito ay ang isa sa mga episodes ng Glee at ng Gate Keepers (isang anime). Parang hindi nila napunan ang aking ineekspek.

Ngayon, hindi pa rin ako sigurado kung maeenrol ba talaga ako bukas kasi hindi naman ako sigurado kung sa araw ay darating ba talaga ang aming guro. Nakakalungkot lang isipin na bukas, ang last day of enrollment (sigurado, hindi), ay yun rin ang araw na magpapaenrol ako. Ina-italicized ko ang mag for emphasis. 

Bukas ay hindi ko pa rin ako sigurado sa mangyayari. Ang aking kapalarang bukas ay walang kasigurohan.

P.S Sana ito lang ang pagkakataon na mahahawa ako ng isang sulat-Tagalog kasi mukhang mahahaba ang aking mga nata-type. BTW, nasabi ko na ba na isa ito sa aking mga katangian -- nahahawa ako kung ano ang istilo ng pagsusulat ng huli kong nabasa, maging ang persepsiyon ng isang karakter sa isang aklat. Oo, ganoon ako kabaliw. :D

Like a Freshman

0 investigated
Waaah! Just as the title says, it almost seemed like I came back as a freshman college student entering the university.

That is all because of the fact that I just had a chest x-ray yesterday and a CBC blood test awhile ago. When I was still an incoming college student in the university, I had a chest x-ray, blood test and dental check up as required by our university for the physical examination.

Now, it's like I'm in the same scenario. Dental check up nalang ag kulang, mura najud kog first year. haha. 

This post will be short because I'm still inviting my folks to vote for my cousin. Anyways, I just contributed 25 people to like that page (which is the way of voting), still far from number of votes to the one with most votes.

BTW, I'm still not enrolled and I super hate it because we still didn't have grades in our major (which I'm still worried and paranoid of). I think I'll end up in that PE again and not the one I wanted. :[

Enrollment: A Hassle in a Hustle

0 investigated
Whew! And I was right. Still I won't be enrolled. Of course. How could that be possible if I have only achieved like 20% of the whole process. The good news that I received today was that I passed with that subject. For now, the only trouble I have to face regarding the grades are like 4 subjects. I'm still paranoid that I might not pass the other subjects.

Also, with regards to my good news, there's a bad one which involves that of my sister. I'm still praying for her in her trouble.

For now, I'm not feeling well and my head aches. Thss would not really be a big problem if only me is not feeling well. My mom and my sister is in the same boat with me.

When Sembreak Ends

0 investigated
Hay! Our 3-week semestral break seems too short. That is the usual feeling when just after few hours (just like now) and poof...sembreak's end. Well, after all tomorrow is not yet the exact beginning of the second semester. We still have a week or so. But that really is not the case for tomorrow is the registration week or the enrollment week. And alas, falling on long lines again and long process of enrollment.

Even if I would be the earliest bird tomorrow or we would have the enough money for the down payment or the process would be so in a jiffy, there is still no assurance that I'd be enrolled already. Of my 8 subjects in the prev sem, only 2 of them have grades already. The good news is that I both passed in these 2 subjects. The bad news is that I still don't know what is my grade in the subject where I feel like I flunked. Worse is if I really flunked with that subject then it would seem like I didn't take a summer class.

Also, I have another problem and that is my PE subject both the one in 1st sem and the upcoming. With the 1st I'm thrilled because maybe I'd get an INC. With the upcoming one, same story but what's making thrilled is the fact that my PE is softball. In my part, its kind of okay. With my mom, it's a NO-NO because of the danger stuffs and all. I still have to get a med certificate to certify my slight scoliosis so that I'll get the approp PE.

This sure is one long post. haha. After all, I've been out of the blogosphere for a long time. For now, I'll try to keep on writing even if my posts are kind of senseless.
