Today, I'm absent/on sick leave again from the office. This is my second time this week, fourth time this month and nth time this year. I got home at 3AM (again???) and woke up at 9AM but I feel like my head is bangin' and everything is blurry and my eyes - they hurt and my neck is stiff and my back is in pain. I closed my eyes trying to sleep again, hoping that all these pain would just pass. I woke up again at around 12PM and my head is still spinnin' round.

I can really feel that my body is deteriorating. I can feel several major body aches like backache, muscle ache, toothache (yes this is true), stomachache (no breakfast), headache, name it!!! I am really worried about the headache issue because I am suspecting that this one is related to my eyes. Oh no! I don't want to have blurry eyes! I don't want to wear eyeglasses - I look so old wearing those.

I think I just lost 10 years of my lifespan. What a waste! I want to go to Intellicare today for checkup but I feel lazy to do so... No no, I don't feel lazy at all, I am just SCARED that they might find serious illnesses during the check up. huhuhu.

I just want to rest. I feel so stressed...
I want to go on a vacation. I want to take a break...
My body feels like giving up...
I miss my maming...
I can't wait for August 26 to come...
I want to go home to Bohol...
I  miss our Camiguin - Cagayan - Bukidnon adventure... I haven't had enough time reminiscing our adventures there since I'm always bombarded with office tasks.
I want to free my mind from for loops and stored procedures and null pointer exceptions (all technical stuffs).
I want to clean my room...
I want to arrange my files - my nihonggo stuffs...
I want to study Nihonggo...
I want to do movie marathon - watch Harry Potter over and over again...
I want to memorize the lyrics of Super Bass by Nicki Minaj and rap it flawlessly (haha).
I want to catch up with all the TV Series I used to watch - Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaries...
I want to play tap tap revenge...
I want to do blog hopping...
I want to cook my favorite foods and eat like there's no tomorrow...
I want to take a shot of beautiful sceneries...
I want to sing my heart out in karaoke...
I want to shout loudly - waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

I want my life back.  Please give it back to me... =(

Today, August 9, 2011, I'll be saying hello to a new music buddy. This doesn't mean that I'm dumping for good my current music buddy (for 1 year and a half now) - my iPod.
My iPod with my Monster Beats headphones.

Since last year, my iPod has been my company when I go to work, when I go home from work, when I'm sad or lonely or happy or angry, my iPod is always there for me to play the songs that suits my mood (char lang!). And now that my iPod will not be used regularly in the following days, I realized that I should make a post about the songs that my iPod has been playing for me since the past 1 and a half year.

20. Who Says by Selena Gomez and the Scenes 
      I started playing this track when I went to Family Park together with my best office buds. We were singing who says who says you're not beautiful...who says? loudly at the car.

19. Give Me Everything by Pitbull featuring Neyo
      I started to like this song when I saw the Iconic Boys perform it on America's Best Dance Crew for their finale dance. Currently, this song ticks at the top 5 of Billboard Hot 100.

18. Super Bass by Nicki Minaj
      This song made its way to number 18 on this list because I always play this on loop, trying to memorize the lyrics. Nicki Minaj is really a great rapper and I love her songs!

17. Yeah 3x by  Chris Brown
     This is one of my favorite songs from his F.A.M.E. album. I also like the song Next 2 U featuring Justin Bieber. Actually, I thought that Next 2 U would be included in the top 20 and not this song but obviously,  I was wrong. haha!

16. I Wanna Go by Britney Spears
     This is my most favorite song from her album Femme Fatale. This is the song that makes me wanna throw my hands up in the ayer. Hahaha!

15. Run the World (Girls) by Beyonce 

     After her breath-taking and jaw-dropping  performance at Billboard Music Awards, this song has been a regular mainstay on my playlist.

14. Irreplaceable by Beyonce

     I keep on listening to this track because I think this is the best Beyonce song ever.

13. All of the Lights by Kanye West featuring Rihanna
  I was fascinated with this song because of the nice beat and nice music video. I have also seen the top 3 contenders of ABDC perform a dance number of this song during their Kanye West episode.

12. Man Down by Rihanna
     I so so so love this song! I even memorized the lyrics! Hahaha! My officemates always hear me sing this song at the office --- loudly. I guess their favorite part is "rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum, Man down!" because they always ask me "kantaha nato imo rapapumpum nga song!" hehe

11. Ordinary Day by Vanessa Carlton

    Last year, this was my "going home" anthem because this is the first song always played when I'm about to go home. Toinks!

10. Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO
    When I got my Monster Beats headphone just recently, I keep on repeating this song because it's so awesome to hear. It's like I'm on a disco bar!

9. I'm Into You by Jennifer Lopez
   This was the time when I was hit by the last song syndrome "na na nananananana na eh!".

8. Your Love is my Drug by Ke$ha
    Last year, this was my "morning anthem" because I played this every morning when I come to the office. In fact, my project leader asked me why I always keep on playing this song. Haha.

7. Hummingbird Heartbeat by Katy Perry
   I am a big fan of Katy Perry. Her latest album Teenage Dream was a blast too! This song reminds me of the buwaya (only my best buddy, Jellie, can relate) hahaha. This is my most favorite song of her album. I hope that she will make a music video for this one in the coming days. If I'm not mistaken, this song was the most played track as of December 2010 but I was surprised it dipped down to number 7 this year. O_o 

6. Firework by Katy Perry
   This song has been a personal favorite of mine the day Katy Perry released her Teenage Dream album last year. I already know every bit of this song before it broke the airwaves and became a household song and New Year anthem for 2011.

5. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) by Katy Perry
   This one came as a surprise. My taste for this song is like on and off. One day I really keep on looping the song, then after one day, I delete it in my regular playlist. This is Katy Perry's latest hit and I'm crossing my fingers that it would hit number 1 after she releases the remix of Last Friday Night featuring Missy Elliot.

4. The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga
     Oh I love this song! This song is unique and I just love every single beat. I don't know what's with it but maybe it's the saxophone. I just love singing my heart out when I hear this playing on my iPod.

3. Judas by Lady Gaga

   I kept on saying bad things about this song - that it's demonic and blasphemous...  But actually, this song made me crazy. I remembered this was released before Holy Week and I kept on playing it. Because of guilt, I promised myself not to listen to it at Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday and I was successful, but on Easter Sunday, I played this song a million times. Toinks!

2. Teenage Dream by Katy Perry
    When it comes to joyride, I really love singing this song. We first sang this on our joyride (with Margie, Ate Val, Jeraldy and Jellie)  at the city. Then, we sang it repeatedly at our Bohol trip and after that, I tagged this song as the "Joyride Anthem". Hehe. I guess its music video wherein Katy Perry had joyride with her boyfriend influenced me about this.

1. California King Bed - Rihanna
And the most played track in my iPod is no other than California King Bed! When Rihanna released her Loud album last year, this was the first song that caught my attention. I've waited like 50 years for the release of its music video  and it was worth the wait. This is I think the most powerful ballad of Rihanna. I am really upset with the current chart standing of California King Bed at Billboard Hot 100. It has not even reached top 10 and I think that's crazy impossible like are you kidding me?!! But anyway, I think that this song would win many major awards. :)

My top 20 most played tracks.

So that's it... :)
I would like to say thank you (with teary eyes) to my iPod for our great moments together. You have served your master well! (Hahaha OA jud as in, pero sige nalang gud... hahahaha)
Now let me introduce to you my new music buddy:
It's an iTouch 4! Wicked! :))

Monday, August 1, 2011

It's already August! What's in store for me this month? Hmmmmm.... Let's see:
  1. Island Hopping  - Scheduled island hopping (Olanggo island, Hilutungan island, Pandanon island) with Ganesha Teammates on August 6 or August 7.
  2. Monster Beats Headphone - Found a gadget store online and ordered Monster Beats Studio and Tour headphones. I am very excited for these little monsters to arrive at my doorstep.
  3. End of suffering - You can compare this one to an IT student finally getting his approval and grade (3.0 wahaha) of his IT Project. Yehey!
  4. Maming and Kuya's birthday - August 25 and 29 respectively. I don't have any plans yet but I think of the possibility of going home to Bohol at August 27 and 28 if my schedule permits.
  5. Tops Cebu - We didn't make it (with Chakaz All Stars) last month. I still don't know if this trip would push through with them (we are adjusting our schedules) but I have other plans with my batch 2010 ASI officemates also.
I think that's it. I would say that this month would come meek after a full blast July. Well, thank God, that would give me a chance to have a great recovery from heavy splurging last month. Hehe. =)
