An inseparable tandem.
In my heart, lies a man who would love me until the end of time.
Steps on an airplane
I have never ridden an airplane before in my whole entire life. But this summer, I'll be able to have my first flight. International flight, that is. Yes, I know, finally, I'm about to step on an airplane for the first time. So obviously, I should feel giddy and all, right? However, I don't feel giddy that much. I don't even want to go yet. Well, I know there's a reason why I don't feel excited. It's because.. I don't want to leave yet. It's too early. I want to spend the rest of the vacation with my special someone. I still keep wondering, though. A few months back, I was slightly sobbing because I wanted to go elsewhere for a vacation; I wanted to go to another country.. I wanted to travel so bad. But now, I've already got the opportunity and it's already final. It's sure that we're going. But how come I don't feel excited? I guess I do feel a little excited - because I want to know what it feels like to be in another country, especially in the United States of America.

By the way, our flight is on Wednesday, May 12 at 10:30 in the evening. I can't wait to ride an airplane! I'm really going to miss my honeybunch though. I'll miss our 2nd month and his 17th birthday. Oh bummerr. Our arrival will be on the 1st of June. I can't wait to go home by then, for sure! Because I can't live a day without talking to him. My day's just incomplete without him. Things aren't the same. Oh gosh. I hope I survive! Plus, I don't want myself crying at the airport or in the airplane or in SF/LA. I guess I'm just going to hide somewhere private, most likely in the bathroom and burst out all the tears I've been keeping. I'm really going to miss him. Seriously.

I just wish my trip to San Fransisco or Los Angeles would be happy, fun and worth it! I guess 18 days with my mother in a different country would be enjoyable, I think. HAHA. I hope and pray. Hm. So, what do you want me to bring home for you? LULZ. Just kidding, foo! :P

Goodbye Freshmen, Hello Sophomore!
I never expected that my Freshman Year would end that fast. I mean, I could still remember my first day, when everyone didn't know each other and were too shy to talk. And when time has passed, we all became closer and our shyness vanished. We indeed became closer and we turned into a family. Oh really? EDISON, my First Year non-biological family. Well, I love all of my classmates! And I will surely miss them all. The times we've spent together, the laughters we've shared and the precious memories we've had... I will certainly cherish every bit of it. I would like to express my gratitude to each and everyone. Not only to my fellow Edisonians but to all of my fellow first years and to my beloved teachers as well.

My Freshman Year was indeed an awesome one. All thanks to my friends, schoolmates and teachers. At first, I thought that high school would be full of schoolwork, a need of concentration and focus and no time for fun at all. Nevertheless, my thought was completely wrong. The mere fact that we tend to have quizzes all the time, discussions here and there, examinations every month, there's still room for F U N. Yes, we still managed to have fun besides all the fuss. Indeed, I will truly miss the bonding. Especially when we laugh about different things, I'll truly miss that. The times when Sir Friday would discuss humorously and he'd make the whole class giggle. I'll miss the times when Ma'am Ana would scold us for doing something wrong. The times when Ma'am Anne would make us all teary-eyed due to the sad discussions which involve family and other problems. I wish I could mention them all, but surely it will result to a lengthy blog. I will miss everything.

I was right. High school is indeed different from elementary. Why, you asked? Because the fun, friendship and learning is absolutely unlike. In elementary, the teachers were so strict. In high school, some of the teachers let us eat during class. One thing I like about high school is that, most of the time, the teachers aren't around 'cause they're too busy doing whatsoever. Free time, baby! The best. In elementary, the examinations are so freakin' hard and the test papers consist of minimum of 4 pages, I think? However, in high school, even though the exams are held each month, the exams are so darn easy (that is if you study:P). The discussions might get boring and the school activities that you're too lazy to do but at the end of the day, your day will be filled happiness and joy.

I loved my first year in MG High. Hopefully, Sophomore Year would turn into a blast as well. I was involved in trouble a few times.. No sweat! We made a lot of idiosyncrasy this school year and I'm pretty sure that we'll be making loads of idiosyncrasies until high school ends. I mean, it's a part of high school. If you don't get into trouble, eventually, you're a loser, or simply a nerd. I admit, I tend to be nerdy sometimes, because I'm a study freak and I always want to be the highest when it comes to scores, but I assure you, I'm not one of those crybabies or those losers. I'm one of the cool ones, I'm telling you. Ask my friends! In fact, I incline to be a bully slash meanie at times. I've been to the principal's office, too! SSHH. Yeah boy, I'm that troublesome. >:)

First Year has also taught me a lot of things. I learned to believe in myself and to disregard what others say about you. If they tell you bad things that could make you think negatively, don't listen to them and just prove them that they're completely wrong. Do your best to ascertain that those bad things aren't real. Perhaps they just envy you so they exert effort in bringing you down. As time has passed, I learned how to face all the challenges and to overcome all the struggles. I thought that I won't be able to increase my rank in the Overall Top Ten. But from the 10th rank, I became top 7. I was surprised, actually. I thought to myself... My hard work paid off. Thanks to my "inspiration", from top 10, I rose to top 7. :)
Freshmen Year did blow past like a flash and now it has come to an end. Our journey has already begun, and we must continue the journey until we achieve our goals. ♥
GOODBYE FRESHMEN, HELLO SOPHOMORE!

Clarisse Zaplan: Into Photography
Photography

Well, since I bought my own digital camera... I wanted to know about photography more. About this & that. And other things which involve photographs. First of all, I admit that I am an amateur photographer. I'm just a novice, so I apologize if ever I post/upload ugly photos.

However, I wish to develop my skills in photography. I want to enhance my abilities in using a camera and I hope that my shots would be better... soon. Hopefully someone would teach me. And when I get better, I'd like to have a professional camera. Oh gaaahd, I need one. But as of now, I'm contented with this camera. At least, I've got one for me to practice with. And when the time comes.. The opportunity--to have/buy a camera then my life would be complete! (not literally)

Crap. I sound so ambitious. But at least I've got a goal, right? Maybe it's a short-term goal but I am willing to do different things just to accomplish this goal. Indeed, I really really need a DLSR. The thing is, that camera is hella expensive. It costs like more or less fifty grand... Which I could impossibly afford. Someday.. I'll be able to gain that amount of moolah. I hope so.

Actually, I'm willing to wait. If it takes time to get a prof cam then I will wait.

Some might think that I can't pursue my goal... Then there is no doubt that I would prove them all wrong. Just wait & see until I show my true talent and my special ability.

I'M CERTAINLY INTO PHOTOGRAPHY :)

Multiply boasts its new feature - Chat

Mkay, the photo looks a little blurry. But as you can see, Multiply has made a new application in its social network. CHAT?!?

I seem rather overreacting but in EVERYONE's opinion, Multiply most likely copied FaceBook's application which is a chatbox. I know that anyone could make a chatbox in their site and whatsoever. But look at all the changes in Multiply. They're making the website look more and more like FB which irritates me.

First, they upgraded Multiply into version 4.0. Now, they made a chat application courtesy of Meebo? Okay, that's getting waaay too far. Exaggeration? Whatever.

I understand that a lot of people are getting the hang of FaceBook which makes the social network popular and it catches everybody's attention. However, Multiply, which, in fact, also has a lot of users, doesn't have the right to copy FaceBook. Not that I'm a very big fan of FaceBook. The chatbox in Multiply works pretty well, as a matter of fact. And I'm in favor of it. But hopefully, Multiply wouldn't entirely copy the features of FaceBook. E.g applications such as FFS, FarmVille, PetSociety and many others.

Well, I still love both websites... They're both fun and interesting after all. :)

Friends For Sale
There's this application on Facebook where almost everyone (who's registered) in Facebook has gone addicted to. Haha. I don't know what's up with "Friends For Sale" but I'm one of those crazyass people who has an obsession on this application. HAHAHALOL 8D

Well, here's a link for Friends For Sale: http://apps.facebook.com/friendsforsale/

Try it! You might get addicted as well. :>

Hm, you can buy your friends which are called "pets". You gain cash by being bought all the time, buy puting your pets to work and so on. As of now, I've got 14 million [cash]. My owner bought me for 11 million and every time a friend of mine purchases me, my price would change. Sounds cool, eh?

I have 4 pets now. Marvin, Gian, Sean and my brother. Sean's the most expensive among my pets. Hahaha. I have nothing else to mention about Facebook's Friends For Sale. All I could say is that it entertains everyone and it's simply amazing. BUY ME, WOULD YOU? :D

Buwan ng Wika '09
Yesterday was held as our Filipino festival or popularly known as Buwan ng Wika in the Philippines... Why do you think we celebrate this occasion during August?

Before I answer that question. First and foremost, who is the Ama ng Wika in the Philippines? Well, for your information, Manuel L. Quezon was named as Ama ng Wika because he declared Wikang Pilipino from Baler (where he was born) which spread to the whole country. Again, why August? It's because it's the month wherein Manuel Quezon spread Wikang Pilipino and it is his birth month.

Every Filipino must thank Manuel L. Quezon for doing such great thing with pride just to honor our beloved country. Former-president Manuel L. Quezon, we express our greatest gratitude for declaring Wikang Pilipino from your birthplace, Baler to the whole Philippines.

As I've said, yesterday was the event where we celebrated Buwan ng Wika. Our theme was, Mula Baler Hanggang sa Buong Pilipinas. Now you know why our theme's like that. Now, what do we do during Buwan/Linggo/Araw ng Wika?

We do tons of things. We sing, we dance, we compete in quiz-bee's, we perform stories, we orate in front of everyone and a lot more. I have to admit, I usually have fun during Filipino festivals because it brings us all joy. I joined Tagisan ng Talino with Frenzys and Reince representing our section, I-Edison. In spite of me, not reviewing, we were still able to gain the 4th place even though we were against all the years from 1st to 4th. I know it sounds biased but at least we made it to the clincher round. Yayy! It might sound disappointing but I'm still proud of ourselves. Also, we joined Sabayang Pagbigkas entitled "Sa Kabataang Pilipino" by Jose Protacio Mercado Rizal Y Alonso Realonda. Alright, that's the whole name of Jose Rizal which I wrote during the quiz bee and we were right! The seniors, at the same time, were correct too and I'm really happy about that. Our pagbigkas went well, all the practices paid off and all the hard work was worth it! Edison's dance was pretty okay as well. Some of dancers made mistakes but it wasn't that obvious, heehee. Their dance was entitled Pasiguin and it was about fishing.

Modelong Pinoy. There were 2 categories--modernong kasuotan and filipinana costume. Our models were Samantha & Samuelle. Unfortunately, none of them were awarded but it's okay; someone wins, someone loses (it always happens). Everyone's got his/her own talent. Oh, those outfits yesterday were simply gorgeous! :)

I really had fun yesterday and I bet everyone did. I bet next year's Buwan ng Wika would be as fun as this year's. Ipagyabang ang pagiging Pilipino!

Problems.
Problems are not that easy to handle. Some problems are formidable, others are just simple misunderstandings. I don't blame those people who misinterpret things because I believe that nobody is perfect. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES. Don't you think? Everybody is at fault, as a matter of fact.

In a situation, each side has his/her own story. But of course, the only one who knows the whole truth is no other than God. There are different things that lead to fights, arguments or quarrels. These are: *as I have said*, misunderstanding, envy, cruelty and many others.

I. MISUNDERSTANDING
- It's normal for people to misunderstand things in various ways. People misunderstand because of their own beliefs, they believe in rumors and such. Or sometimes because of being unaware of some occurrences that are happening.

II. ENVY
- Most of us encounter jealousy due to misapprehension, selfishness and so on. We all envy. It's alright if you envy someone. Sometimes you envy because you idolize them. Sometimes you envy because you want to be like them. But one thing's for sure, jealousy is a sin, in my opinion...

III. CRUELTY
- People tend to get problems about friendship due to cruelty. There's a possibility that they will betray their friend in a specific reason. But everyone has his/her own weakness. No one is strong except for God Almighty.

Problems can be solved by apologizing which is one way to show sincerity and to show how sorry you are for what you have done. People should also avoid arguing with others if in the end they realize that it's just a damn misunderstanding.

♥BE HAPPY. LOVE YOUR LIFE
