hiatus

I am going on a blogging hiatus. I’m going to practice writing the old way, by writing my thoughts and feelings through paper. In fact, I’ve been doing it quite some time now, and so far, it’s working. Also, this blogging hiatus is also for my own good too.

One Big Five: The Bonfire Photodiary

After a tough semester, I finally had the time to unwind and let loose at this year’s bonfire! In my previous post, the Ateneo Blue Eagles won their FIFTH straight title in basketball this year, and the bonfire was a fitting way to celebrate their victory in the UAAP (along with the other teams that won championships this season)! Anyway, here are some of the pictures from the bonfire last night:

 

The Clingy Club was incomplete last night 😦

With my very happy, left-handed South friends. (Yes, we take HUGE pride in being left-handed)  Anyway, this was taken before the actual bonfire itself!

Kiefer Ravena’s got moves. No, seriously!

Hello, Jam!

Rico Blanco! I have to admit, his getup was pretty strange, but he delivered an awesome performance!

Greg Slaughter

Yael Yuzon! I have so much pictures of Yael in my camera, I think I might have to make a “Yael Yuzon appreciation post” in the future HAHAHA

The best part about the bonfire —— approaching the players without any hint of awkwardness, even if you’re batchmates with some of them! (Random fact: I’m batchmates with Kiefer Ravena, and Nico Elorde is my blockmate!) And yes…..my fangirling tendencies have been unleashed, after a year!

One Big Five

I apologize for the sudden change of direction in my blog posts here. This blog has turned into some sort of a visual diary, because I wanted to incorporate pictures in my blog posts! Now to go the main point of this blog entry…….

My friend David and I watched Game 2 of the UAAP basketball finals between Ateneo and UST today! Right after my History exam, we went straight to Araneta Coliseum to line up for the game. We waited for around almost three hours before we had the chance to get inside. But the long wait was worth it, since the game was really something worth watching! In the end, Ateneo won their fifth straight championship in the men’s basketball division in the UAAP! It was one, long, big fight indeed. Congratulations again, Blue Eagles! Anyway, here are some pictures from today’s game:

I cannot wait for the Bonfire on Saturday!

On flaunting and hiding

The ever-so awesome Mags, recently got published on Rappler for her article about the challenges of being well-endowed in a society like ours nowadays. Just like her, I’m one of those girls that you would call well-endowed. I also have a hard time choosing what clothes to wear every morning. Also, whenever I drop by my favorite stores to check on clothes, I would really double-check if the clothes that I want to buy would not veer into dowdy or whore territory. Being busty, it would sometimes come across my mind if people get distracted with my boobs. Sometimes, my boobs also become a topic in conversations. Once in a while, I would joke about them, but for the most part, I get annoyed by it. Not only that, but certain stereotypes about busty girls baffle me, to the extent that I would wish that perverts (and other close-minded people) would grow Snooki-like boobs to make them feel about my ordeal (How childish and irrational of me wishing that, but yes, it’s true.).

I guess this struggle will only end if people changed their mindset, or their view of big-breasted women as “easy,” “dumb” or whatever stereotype you could insert here. The problem is, this view about big-breasted women, or breasts in general, will not change for now, or even the near future (since it is ingrained in society for a long time).  I think the best thing that I could do is be respectful of my own body as much as possible.
