The Scenario:

I was strolling at the mall one time. I'm actually with my Dad---but I don't really hanker after leisurely walking with him because he's not just so into girly things like spending hours looking for a cute tee, going in and out of the fitting rooms, finding a new headband-slash-pussycat-slash-hair crown (or whatever you call it!) to add to my collection and so on. Thus, I separated with him to spend some quality time for myself. *giggles.

I was in the midst of my window shopping when I remembered that I have to buy some decorations for my scrapbook. So, I went to the National Bookstore. As usual, I wouldn't go out the store without reading some of the books available there. One book really caught my eye! It's super nice and it looks so interesting---and I really find the cover cute! I was able to read some of its contents. Subsequently, my phone rang! It was my Dad calling me---he told me to meet him right away for some important reasons! So in a panic mode I hurriedly followed him. The sad part is I wasn't able to buy that book! Huhu.

Then just last week, I helped MSL to find a birthday gift for his younger bro Tim2x. I suggested a book so that Tim2x could spend his summer reading. A double purpose for me because I really really want to hit upon that book again---MSL also looked for it. But we're just so unlucky, we haven't found it. Huhu. MSL bought me another book instead-- Stainless Longganisa by Bong Ong. Thanks Muchie yummy bear. (corny. Hihi.)
Here's some info about the book:

Title: The Boyfriend List

Author: E. Lockhart

Overview: (I searched the net for this one.)

Ruby Oliver is 15 and has a shrink. She knows it's unusual, but give her a break---she's had a rough 10 days. In the past 10 days she:

lost her boyfriend (#13 on the list).

lost her best friend (Kim),

lost all her other friends (Nora, Cricket),

did something suspicious with a boy (#10),

did something advanced with a boy (#15),

had an argument with a boy (#14),

drank her 1st beer (someone handed it on her),

got caught by her mom (aghh!),

had a panic attack (scary),

lost a lacrosse game (she's the goalie),

failed a math test (she'll make it up),

hurt Meghan's feelings (even though they aren't really friends)

became a social outcast (no one to sit with at lunch)

and had graffiti written about her in the girls' bathroom (who knows what she was in the boys'?!?)

But don't worry---Ruby lives to tell the tale. And make more list. =)

Hrrrr. I vowed my self to look for this book---no matter what!

Teeny Weeny

Haha. AT LAST! Sorry to keep you waiting for my spanking new post. Actually, my friends kept bugging me and even my co-bloggers here to update my blog. But despite the fact that I really want to, I can't. I had to make the most of my time in school. I absolutely know my priorities. Our Finals for the 2nd sem is now over and done. Thanked God. But the process I went through for the exam was...unexplainable? I can't settle on the exact word to describe it. Hrrrrr. I am a person who is so into CRAMMING. Yes. I know it's better to study in advance---but I think being idle especially weeks before my examination is in my system already. I'm like a machine set to operate 2 days, a day, a night or even hours before the exams! IMAGINE? Haha. However, I am extremely used to it. I'm relatively quick-witted so I know I can come to grips with it w/o a fuss.

And hey, I GOT 3 EXEMPTIONS. I'm not in fact expecting it. Last sem I was also exempted but with only 2 subjects. Now, my count is in 3. I'm just very thankful and blessed, of course. You know it's really nice to think that somehow your hard work (and sleepless nights!) had paid off. I'm not bragging it to all of you, i just want to share my teeny weeny accomplishment. By some means, it made me feel proud of my self and knowing that my parents were also proud of me makes me want to sing the nursery song...'I'm alive, alert, awake, enthu-sias-tic!' Haha. Is that right? Hmmm. (ano'ng connect???) [--,]

Oh well. Time seems to just whizz by, don't you think? Summer Class is just around the corner. And in just a few months, I will be taking another step on to my 2nd year in college. Just be with me on my journey. Ok? Put up the shutters. *wink. ^____^
