God, i miss LiveJournal.
I was reading through all my entries, and i mean ALL, haha! I prolly went through a hundred plus blog entries. It's so weird but i thin differently now. I don't know, i guess people really do grow up? some of what i wrote back then, now seem so shallow and superficial and just so highschool. Okay don't get me wrong, highschool was like the best 4 years of my life, and it was a whirlwind of tears, adventures, firsts, (non)romance, and friends. But then my world back then revolved around school, homework, boys, parties and family. That was the world i knew, and the world i thought i was living in. Okay well highschool was really just a year ago, but so much has changed in the past year.

College really opened me to so many more ideas about people, and the world in general.
1. Just because someone doesn't speak English well doesn't make him or her any less of a person. If anything, a lot of the blockmates and classmates i've had whose first language isn't English, are more real and more lifelong than majority of my fluent friends and acquaintances. I've leaned not to judge based on appearances, and i also learned who my true friends were.
2. There's so much more to life than missing a party, or hearing all the latest gossip on this person and that person, or who's dating who now, and all. So i still love hearing people's kuwentos and very exciting stories of their very exciting love lives, but it's not everything in the world. 
3. Home is where the heart is. Well, mine, at least. Sometimes, i like staying in more than going out. Over the past few months, i've become closer to my family than i've ever been before, and i find myself wanting to stay at home rather than going out. I still do love going out with friends and parties, but i'm not DYING to get out of the house. In school, when i have 3 hour breaks, i don't make tambay or whatever. I go home, and just go back to school for my next class.
4. It's not about the school/university you're in, but what you make of it. It doesn't matter if you go to Ateneo, La Salle, FEU or Centro Escolar or AC, but what matters is what you make of the whole college experience. Of course the school matters, but in the end, the brass tax isn't in the name. Having transferred from DLSU to AC, i can speak from experience that in curriculum, there aren't that many differences with the courses. (well, in Advertising, anyway) Someone could be going to a top university, but he or she could skip every single class... as opposed to someone who goes to a not so known college, but strives and motivates himself/herself in school. I wonder who'll get hired. Haha! I'm not undermining DLSU or ADMU or the other "Ivy Leagues," their curriculums are great. It's just that people underestimate the smaller colleges. It really all depends on the person, not the college.
5. Boys come and go, but family and (true)friends are forever. I'm really happy (and envious of, haha!) for those people who can say that they're happy and content with their relationship with their boy/girl/MU/whatchamacallit. Personally, i have remained friends with some boys i was close to in high school, but i have also fallen out with some. On a more "romantic" note, those boys i was super crushing on and spent hours chatting/texting/seeing, are now history. HAHA! I guess we grew up. (or rather, I grew up) And the people who are still the driving forces in my life are my family and friends. Gotta love 'em.
6. Time is really REALLY fast. One of my friends' status in Facebook was like, "Guys, it's been 2 years since prom!" I can't believe it's already been two years. It HAS been a while, but two years went by in a flash. Two years from now, my sister will be in her senior year. I'll be in my 3rd year of college, and my other sister will be in aviation school. Two years from now, i might not be friends anymore with the people i'm friends with today.
7. You can't trust everyone. My mom usually tells me i'm too unassuming and kind of gullible and trusting with people, to the point that i get taken for granted or deceived, etc. Last 2009, i was the victim of again my super trusting nature, which resulted in my transferring schools. the world isn't all good, as they used to teach in religion class. Sorry nalang, but that's the truth. In theory, it's all nice and happy and just so peachy to be idealistic, but in reality, life bites. Okay just kidding. But life isn't fair, and not everyone is good. It's better to be a realist, because then you don't get disappointed. But it's better to be hopeful than to be apathetic, because then, things will change.

Okay so there's so much more that i learned but i gotta get started on homework. It's 10:25 already and i haven't done a single thing.
