Renxkyoko Iglesias musing here.
This is just an update of things that happened to me last week……
First off, we bought a 2009 Toyota Camry, with only 22,000 miles in it. That’s pretty good for a used car. Uhm, for first time readers, our family van was stolen while in my care, so yeah, I really feel guilty, though I know it isn’t my fault. . Anyways, I’m relieved we ‘ve managed to replace the van as quickyly as possible. It was quite difficult to have only one car for 3 people, myself, mom and dad. I don’t have a car, but I hope to get my sister’s car when she gets a new one. I hope, soon.
Also, I was able to enroll in my Chemistry class. Oh, what a relief ! ! There were 20 waitlisted students who were trying to get in, but only 2 were taken in, and thank goodness the other one was my Physics classmate last year who has been trying to get in for 3 semesters already. This is my 4th Chemistry… 3 more to go. I just found out Chemistry is my de facto Minor, with Molecular Microbiology as my major course. I thought of making Forensic Science as a minor, but I guess Chemistry is better. My sister is a microbiology grad but is now working as a chemist . I see myself working in a lab …. not a bad career, if I do say so myself.. Meanwhile, I’m selling clothes and scooping ice cream. Speaking of which, I’m now # 2 in sales. Our target is $ 150 an hour, but I’m doing $ 300, so my boss is liking me more and more. Oh, by the way, I now know what BCBG means…. it’s Bon Chic, Bon Genre. The name of our store is BCBG MAX AZRIA. Max Azria is the designer. It’s funny that the latest topic as suggested by WordPress is ” Do you work too much or too little?” At this moment, I’m exhausted. Alright, Saturday, I worked from 10 AM – 2 PM at baskin and Robbins, then from 3 PM to 11 PM at BCBG. ( It was quite busy on Labor Day weekend sale ) Then on Sunday, I worked from 8 AM – 3 PM, then 5 PM -10 PM…. today, it’s the same time. I didn’t go to Mass this Sunday. I ’m sure God understands. I don’t know why I feel troubled and guilty everytime I don’t go to Church. I’m like, what if I keel over tomorrow, I’ll go to hell? That’s the punishment for mortal sin. It’s a stupid thought, I know. . It’s just something from Sunday school that got stuck in my head. Meh.
My aunt from the Philippines is here with us. First thing we did was shop until we dropped, all on her American Express. She wanted to buy me a Tag Hauer watch, but I opted for cash and clothes, he he he. I have my cell phone to give me time, anyways. She gave my siblings Tag Hauers last time she was here. ( Over a thousand dollars each ) I didn’t get one coz I was still in middle school. And, didn’t I write on my previous post things were gonna be good this year ? Well, my aunt promised a European tour for me and my Mom next summer. I’m already daydreaming about it this early. Yay ! Well, she says it’s 100 % sure thing. We pay for the airplane fare and she’ll take care of the rest…EurailPass, hotels, food ! ! All we have to do, she says, is to pray nothing happens to her from now till next summer ! ! “ Luv ya, Aunty ! Stay healthy ! “
What are top ten places i want to go to ? 1. Spain 2. Rome 3. Greece 4. Switzerland 5. England 6. Scotland 7. Ireland 8. Turkey 9. Netherlands 10. France…….. Uhm, why Turkey , you ask ? Well, my aunt says it’s one of the most beautiful places she’s been to, so far. You know, the United states is also beautiful, but, it lacks culture ? I don’t really know what ” culture ” means…. Perhaps we have culture, but it’s 20th century culture, like Hollywood culture …..it isn’t much, and it isn’t like something I’d like to ogle at and take pictures of. I know we don’t really have stateside Antiquities to show off….. just Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The US doesn’t have real castles, no Parthenon, no thousand year old structures………….. in other words, it lacks that Old World feeling . Anyways, I hope I can go to Egypt and Jerusalem to see the Pyramids and these Bible places, but my aunt says these places are not 100% safe. There’s one place in Asia, though, that I really, really want to visit….it’s Japan. Maybe it’s because of my manga obssession. That’s a crazy reason why I want to go, unless of course I intend to stay there and experience the day to day Japanese life, like going to Festivals wearing a yukata, eating a bento, and meeting a manga hero that looks like this…..
It’s funny coz I see images of Japan with people in them, and definitely, not one looks like that guy here…….and truth be told, I swear this guy looks more like the deli guy at Subway that’s right across from Baskin and Robbins where I work. Ahahaha ! Sheeesh. And, oh, yeah, Keanu Reeves ! He looks like the guy from L.DK.
Here he is, Shuseii from L.DK…. * drools*
Oh, gosh, I love L.DK…. L.DK means Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen. Nice title of a romance story.
I have to concede to Angus and Eros though. ( from the manga THE ONE ) They’re really pretty.
These two are the reasons why we keep on reading. He he he …… Do you know what the problem is with these mangas? They raise the standard of the “ideal man”, like, how he should look like, act, and behave. I am now now attracted to guys with long hair. But female manga readers do fantasize. Why do I know that ? Coz I read the forums and they’re like this….
…………….. daydreaming that someday……..,,
Yeah. Sweet, huh, See that? The guy is even blushing. Awwww ! That image is from the manga STROBE EDGE , one of the nicest, sweetet, cutest, albeit heart wrenching mangas I’ve ever read. It is heart wrenching coz the guy has a girl friend. What’s worse is the girl friend is prettier ( she’s a model) , and not only that, she’s actually nice. T.T And the main girl, Nanako, does not get in the way of Ren’s and his gf’s relationship. She does not break them up… it’s a mutual decision. The GF lives in another city, and is quite busy with work and she does meet other people, but Ren himself does not break up with her because he’s a good , faithful and loyal guy, even though he has started to fall for Nanako. Once he’s free, he confesses to Nanako, but Nanako rejects him. Well, Ren has a best friend who’s also in love with nanako, and the best friend has always been there with Nanako trying to make life easier for her as she suffers from supposedly unrequited love for Ren. Awww ! In the end of course, Ren and Nanako get together. ………..Hahaha, I know, it’s so cheesy, but I love it. So, yeah, that’s the stuff some mangas are made of….. pure, young love, the ideal one that impressionable girls are dreaming of.
Alright, this is all for now. I hope I can post more often after this. It’s really been awhile, huh, more than 2 weeks from my last post , I think. Gosh, I’ve been so busy.
So, bye for now, be nice, be good, and PEACE !
