Tomorrow starts my last semester as an undergraduate, and I am a wee bit queasy. Mostly because my first subject is something I should have taken back when I was in second year. And now I'm forced to take it with sophomores. I don't know anybody but what the hell, let's get it over with.

I just really hope there wouldn't be introductions anymore. God, I really hate that part.

OH And I'm really excited about PI 100 (Rizal) too, since it's his 150th birthday anniversary on the 19th and surely, this is a good time to study Rizal. I hope they make us go to conferences and stuff, but even if they didn't, I'd go on my own anyway.

I'm starting Bio 102 (Vertebrate Anatomy) too, and even if it tried my patience and perseverance during enrollment, I'm looking forward to it. I know I have to give time for studying it, if I want a good grade, something higher than 2, and I'm hopeful. I don't want a repeat of Chem 31.

Also, I'm Doccom this year in AME. I'm really unfamiliar with what they do there but I'm willing to learn. Aaaand I'm pretty excited about Kami to Ki. It's been a long time since I worked in a newspaper/magazine (lol high school) and... ah... let's just say I wanna draw comics again.


Fandom stuff, I've caught up to Kuroshit, Pandora Hearts, Detective Conan, B&R. I tried reading Angel Sanctuary and I never thought I'd say this about Kaori Yuki but... it doesn't amaze me. It's confusing and that incest angle is distracting. I mean, is it totally necessary for the story or is it just a fetish, 'cause... it's not cool. I think she said somewhere that she's curious about it because she doesn't have a brother, but I'm telling you, it's not cool. NOT COOL. I have two brothers and just the thought of that makes me wanna hurl ok. It's not just socially deviant, it's biologically harmful too. I guess this here is one of my limitations.

I have Death Note too, but I haven't started reading it, I saw it years ago. Finished 20th Century Boys AND THAT WAS MY MOST SATISFYING READ IN A LONG TIME. Damn. Urasawa-sensei, whew, I adore his clean art, clean panels, and the way everything connects neatly, even after several layers, in the end. The last time I felt this for a manga was with his Monster run. He might just be my most favorite mangaka ever. When I have money I'll collect him.

Enrollment lines made me start on Oliver Twist and I'm near the end now and I might actually start collecting Dickens too. THIS is the kind of writing I love: satirical, long-winding sentences that go for whole paragraphs and loses you somewhere in the way, making you backtrack to read it over again. Victorian era fiction, mmm, delicious.

Lastly, I have finished the four seasons of The Tudors and I love the way they speak their English. Three seasons into Criminal Minds and shoot, that was a cliffhanger. I need more. But because the semester's starting, I may not have time at all.

Drew these on my 160 notes~ Six hours of talking about brains is freaking exhausting, but it's good for my drawing xD

Based on this weird dream I had about Niizuma Eiji from Bakuman. It's my latest addictionread--- I just wish there were stronger female roles, but it's shounen, so there.

superman/batman, robin, other shitty sketches :D )

Merry Christmas! I was going to say belated, but as a friend said, Christmas is up until Three Kings'! Haha, after four years out of convent school, I think I'm messing up my Church calendar :D
  • The holidays have been a bit of a blah. Nothing that exciting. Unless you could call watching Dexter 3 exciting (which it is but that's beside the point XD). Mostly I've been catching up on shows I couldn't watch at boarding house (like House and Glee, and a guilty bit of Friday Night Lights). My brother and I watched a lot of kung fu movies too, and we've been thinking of moving to China... because it seems everybody can fly up there.
  • I'm practicing watercolor too! deathofrats is my new idol. I found my ancient bottle of drawing ink but I can't find my equally ancient pen nibs. We used them for drafting back in high school. Hmm. Convent school's really great at the arts and music and choirs and stuff, but not so much at the sciences. Bad luck for me. One of my deepest desires is to be a monk in the Middle Ages - those who write books entirely by longhand, with pretty pretty penmanship!!
  • Finished Monster too. Must say, one of the best I've ever read. But the ending was... kinda bleak - I was expecting something more Sixth Sense, haha. I might start collecting the manga. It's really good. On Hetalia, though... I haven't visited Hima-san's blog in ages. I might. Now.
  • I WANNA WATCH ROSARIO. It's just so 1920's pretty. The vintage dresses, omg. RPG Metanoia too, maybe. Support Philippine cinemaaaa!
  • Yeah, so, I thought I wouldn't have aguinaldo now that I'm almost two decades old, but... thanks to my godparents. :D
We'll be going up to Baguio on the 28th-30th for a wedding. They say it's up to 14C there, is it true? Anybody want some pasalubong?

I was walking down the Paramount overpass to SM North when I saw something like this among the tiangge people. They were selling "bfgf" shirts.


Syempre, emo black and red ang kulay niyan, diba. Namiss ko tuloy ang Naruto. Nung nagbabasa pa ako, ito yung barko ko e. Kaso ngayon, gusto ko na lang mamatay si Sasugay.

Anyway, [ profile] chocomintee's recommendations Makai Ouji: Devil and Realist and Karneval were cute~ I'm waiting for the next chapters already :D And I recently saw Japan's best-selling manga in [ profile] aramatheydidnt and I became curious about Nurarihyon no Mago (it's the only unfamiliar one for me lol). It's really good! Especially if you're into youkai and shounen with almost nonexistent ecchi, although it might be gory. Still, it's a breather. ♥♥

I realized how much time I've spent reading Western comics when I did a double take upon remembering that Kaori Yuki wrote and drew Ludwig Kakumei.

I have become accustomed to seeing two separate names T__T

Can anybody recommend me some new manga to read? My current reading list is all Alan Moore. I'm thinking of taking up Monster already. But it doesn't need to be scarily psychological or something. I'd appreciate a cutesy shoujo manga with good art and a plot :D


I had a fun day Christmas shopping the other day~ I finally picked up Miguel Syjuco's Ilustrado and got myself some new clothes. Then we went a-visiting my grandmother to show off my new grad pictures. And she ended up kidnapping it. The framed one.

Now I have to go back to the studio and have another one reprinted.

What's the problem with UVLe? I've been downloading a 35.2 MB Physics probset for an hour already, and it's still at 58%. And I still have to wait 40 minutes for it to finish. Is my internet that slow?


But I've already finished torrenting 2 episodes of Kuroshitsuji II at the same time, so it couldn't be that slow, right? Or do torrenting and DDL have kind of an inverse relationship? IDKWTF I'm sleepy already.

manga: Kuroshit; series: Sherlock. HUEG Holmes faggotry. )

Some fanservicing with the Earl.

OOOORYAAAA Victorian England isn't complete without Sherlock Holmes. And Jack the Ripper. And India. But well, yeah, I couldn't stop spazzing at the part where a certain guy dies of poison in a locked room and I was thinking and hyperventilating OMG IT'S THE SPECKLED BAND OMG SIR DOYLE'S FAVORITE HOLMES STORY OMG.

Weehee~ It's the first time I saw Sir Doyle in a manga. And I'm super happy <3

Speaking of happy, the last episode of BBC's Sherlock made me happy. The pool scene, really! OHGOD I loved that. I couldn't stop playing it over and over this past week like it's my life blood. I'm seriously considering making some parts of it my message alert tone. So if you ever hear an annoying singsong-y voice saying "Booooring~" that's probably from my phone.

HNNNNGH It saddens me to think of the one year wait till the next season.

Only now do I realize that I'm such a Holmes fag.

UVLe's at 81%! And I only have to wait for 10 more minutes! But LOL, my third Kuroshit torrent's gonna finish in 6 minutes. Huh. I'm wondering if Kuroshit needs a separate tag.

Manga Update List!

My Barbaric Girlfriend - Chapter 54! Oh no, Nanako/Akira moment, grrr. DNW! Akira should be with Senbongi! Whatever happens! Aaaah, I shall boycott if Nanako/Akira happens (although I think it's the main goal to make them happen D<)

BTW, Nanako's the guy. They kinda switched bodies.

At Market! Market! this morning, my brother and I were fapping over random anime at Comic Alley when Ate Cashier started suggesting things:

Ate: Ay, ito, napanood niyo na yung Baka to Test? Bago lang yan, maganda rin, kahit ECCHI~

Bro: O_o HUWOOOW Ecchi daw, ecchi!

Ate: O kaya, yung Monochrome Factor, maganda yun, medyo YAOI~

Me: @_@ You got me at yaoi, ateh~ *wink* (No, actually, tawa lang ako ng tawa.)

Shit, ang cool ni Ate. Napabili tuloy kami pareho.

The things I've finished and this week in bullets si'l vous plait.
  • Monday was AME Buddy Bidding. I didn't sign up for the buddies, so I don't have one ;w; Oh well, there's still next year.
  • Tuesday nothing really happened, except for a weird 118 exercise where we needed to use 'traces and archives' to find out which Psych areas the library lacks books on. But we aren't LibSci majors, right? D: No Italian class too, aww.
  • Wednesday was the AME GA. Spent a lot of time discussing alumni status. Had to go early because of a goddamned Physics probset.
  • Thursday, we played Italian-style BINGO at Italian class, and whoever gets a "Tombola" gets +10 points on the exam! Well, guess who won~ *wink*wink* SOMETIMES I UNDERESTIMATE MY LUCK
manga: Mozart )
  • Friday, we didn't have 7 am Physics class, so I got to sleep until 10 am. Hahaha.
series: Mental )
  • Saturday, a while ago, was the AME Acquaintance Party. The food was really good, akfhefhefd. It's embarrassing to remember our fail (and cold) pancit canton. *shudder* And seeing the boys do Abracadabra just made my day. I had to go early though, so I couldn't finish it.

NGE Gakuen Datenroku has ended!

Aww. I kind of missed out a lot of this manga. I used to check turtle-paradise every so often for updates, but they were scarce, so I forgot all about it. Now I can't even remember where I left off....

I liked this spin-off a lot because of the beautiful art, and the possibility of a Shinji/Rei at the beginning. And then the abundance of Kaworu/Shinji somewhere in the middle. I never really liked Asuka for some reason. The plot got murky somewhere in the middle too, although the beginning was epic. I still don't know how it ends, so I'm downloading it all this evening. >D


And something weirder: The Main Lib internet blocks dA (TTATT) and Pixiv and Youtube and some parts of LJ but not OneManga. HOW IS THAT FAIR? THAT'S LIKE WEIRD MAN.

I swear I'm going to watch both of these on IMAX as if it's the last thing I'll do. 

A farewell gift *sniff* for a childhood friend who's been with me more than half my life; a lifelong wish for one small letter; and the greatest fandom of my life. YES, it tops Hetalia, Narnia, NGE and even the gayshiz I have shitloads of.
