The Shirt That No One Bought

Probably the worst kind of foresight anyone could ever have..

Yeah, Right..

I'm still wondering, what happened to all those fifty-thousand shirts?..

Last na talagang pambebembang ito... promise! :P

One Big Bite.

I'm still wondering why up to this time, some of my Ateneo friends (or is that, former-friends?) are still fussing over the UAAP result. Well, please don't mind this post if you're not interested in the topic or if you might be offended. I'm just trying to air out my views.

First, don't send me messages saying that it was all a big set-up. Mind you, I believe you yourselves created the illusion that your school is better than mine, you have told me that over and over again. You yourselves have placed an air of prestige, royalty and grandeur around your university. So why are you trying to tell me now that we bribed referees and high-ranking people from the UAAP?! If your school is better than mine, or more royal, more prestigious, more grand, how the hell could you not have known the dealings of a "weak, hypocritical" school?!

Secondly, I believe that you know it in your heart that even I was doubting whether or not we would win. This only means that even I was surprised with the result, although it was a pleasant surprise. I was never too confident that we would surely win. Unlike you guys. And please, try to look at the results.

Lastly, please stop fussing! It's almost been two weeks already since the finals, and frankly, the school spirit is slowly turning into vapor. I don't know how big your egos can be, but I am sure that you're not someone who's too shallow to accept the results. Duh? It's just a game.

And for all you other people still making a big deal out of the results of the UAAP finals, please! Get a life! It's done! It's final! UST won! It's not like the end of the world!

And also, please don't go around bad-mouthing UST. It only shows how low you can go when you really show your true sides. "You may have robbed us of the trophy, but you will never rob us of our dignity" What the fuck? I never knew that the prize of the UAAP Game was the losing team's dignity! And robbery? For the love of everything that is good, we could never rob from you something that was never yours to start with. (And if you're talking about robbery, why not mention how you robbed us of Game 1 victory with a last second miracle?).

Don't think that I'm against Ateneo or Ateneans in general. I'm just against shallow minded individuals who can't seem to accept things as they are (up to this point in time--which is like, so long after the game!).

I said it before, and I'll say it again: We are not happy because Ateneo lost the championship. We are happy because UST won.

Lament of a Rude Worthless Kid

I guess it's all too late
The clock ticked so slow
The moment's gone too fast
I'm left wondering
Where I had been All this time

The bed calls, I must answer
Like I had answered before
I guess I answer too much
I guess I should have just said no

I wonder how red my blood is
I wonder how much pain it will cause
I wonder if it will be pleasurable
I wonder if it will be good

Someone told me
There's always hope; Liar
I wish there was
I wish there is
I wish

The clock ticks so much slower
Now that I have nothing to do
I am falling
Deeper and deeper
Into a tunnel of darkness
Which I myself have dug

Forgive me, or who I was
I am just not ready to live this life
I would rather be dead than not be alive
It should have been easier

The blue is now turned to stone
And once again my pockets are empty
Once again I am miserable
Like I was before

Or did I ever become otherwise?

I guess I should have known
I guess I should have listened
I guess I should have worked
I guess I should have given

I can hear the laughter of my enemies
Their prayers have been answered
I was smitten by the hand of their God
Mine is all I have

I'm afraid
Does it not show?
I guess I hide to well
Everyone tells me so

I wish the heart would stop beating
I wish the mind would stop thinking
I wish the world would just listen
I wish the I would just not

I think I'll have another smoke.
