I'll be celebrating my 17th birtday next week! And I'll spending it in Gawad Kalinga, building houses for the poor. No, I'm not running for elections, so don't think that this is a tactic.
Anyway, more news: February 24, 2006. The Philippines was declared A National State of emergency. We were already in school, but after some hasty decisions, we were sent home. Close to Martial Law, but still not quite. I can't believe that I'm living in such a chaotic world--or make that country. And that I'm--all of us Filipino citizens--reliving the infamous events of the 70th decade: Marcos' reign.
It's pretty ironic since yesterday was also the 20th anniversary of the peaceful People Power revolution that paved way to our liberty from Marcos' dictatorship and bloody rule.
Yuckers...it's The Juniors' Night tomorrow evening. Prom: "Parang atin ang gabi. Para bang wala tayong katabi. At tayo'y sumayaw, na parang di na tayo bibitaw...di na tayo bibitaw..." It's not for me, really. But I'm going, because it's worth 1100 bucks! And you'll have to pay even if you're not coming...
We helped preparing the venue a while ago...and my back aches. Ouch.
By the way, Blackstabber played her guitar. Way too cool! Woohoo! Rak on!
Happy New Year! Well, its already 2006 and school's about to resume...crap! I want more holidays and no classes. There's so much more I want to do. I think I'm cramming life! I wish a day would be made up of 36 hours or more...
