Mournful Tuesday

Im blogging from my phone now.
Sorry that this Tuesday is not so tuneful.
This is because my grandpa just passed away this morning.
It was a shocking news indeed. I thought that i could say some last few words but God called him early.
I reached my hometown today since my exams were over yewterday but too bad that it was all too late.
I wish that me and him had a special memorable song so i could've posted it here.
May your soul rest in piece, kong,, im gonna miss you.
Hope you're reading this from the beautiful place up there.
I love you.

We thought we knew everything, but we didn't.

We were so young and invincible

Young love was such dumb love
Call it what you want it was still enough

And you're still out of me reach
And you're still all of the things
That I want in my life
How could I ask you to leave me?

And we were just kids in love
The summer was full of mistakes we wouldn't learn from
The first kiss stole the breath from my lips
Why did the last one tear us apart?

Everybody has a secret

Got a secret

Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave

Despite the creepy theme song, my obsession towards Pretty Little Liars is huge!
Meet Emily, Aria, Hanna and Spencer!

Who is your favorite 'liar'? I personally like Aria ;)

Intriguing plot, cool outfits, interesting music, and of course, charming hunks!
If I had a teacher like him I wouldn't blink even for a second in class!

Initially planned on watching the show to see Diego Gonzalez Boneta only and found out that the show just started so why not watch from the beginning? And apparently I got hooked badly!

Ian Harding!

Have a great weekend!

Tuneful Tuesday #8

There are lots of things that I want to share with you today.
Good ones and bad ones.
So which one first?

Alright maybe the bad ones first.

First, I screwed my exam yesterday. I may be exaggerating but I know it wasn't good. Plus the fact that some of my friends actually got the latest past year papers from several connections which were really similar to the actual exam. I found it quite unfair since the latest papers were actually only meant to be for students who failed the exam before.

Second, my regular Spanish teacher is leaving the tuition centre for another institution, which is very saddening for me.. Moreover I won't be attending the last class she teaches as I'll be going back a week before that :(

Third, one of my classmates is acting super weird. He's ignoring me for no reasons. I don't know if it's correct to put that under this category.

Fourth, I seem to lose contact with my best friend again. I've been dreaming about her. I miss her so much :(

Now move on to the good ones.

First, CONGRATS TO SPAIN FOR WINNING THE 2010 WORLD CUP! I'm so happy for them and I think they truly deserved it ;)

Second, I've got my timetable for the next term. I have to say that the schedule is pretty awesome. It's better than this term and the best part is my birthday falls on one of the study breaks, which is awesome.

Third, I'm in love with this song by Eminem and Rihanna. This video is just a cover of it since the official video is not out yet.

"And right now there’s a steel knife in my windpipe
I can’t breathe but I still fight while I can fight"

"So they say it’s best to go your separate ways
Guess they don’t know you
Cause today, that was yesterday
Yesterday is over, it’s a different day
Silent broken records playing over"

"Life is no nintendo game, but you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave out the window
I guess that’s why they call it window pane"

"Now I know we said things
Did things that we didn’t mean
And we fall back into the same patterns, same routine
But your temper is just as bad as mine is"

"Maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens when a tornado meets a volcano"

"Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie"

Eminem is probably the one and only rapper that I still listen to since I was in primary school. I know he does some bad things in his life, (well, all of us do right?) but I always see him as a talented musician who writes more meaningful lyrics than just about some girls in clubs. He does have that type of songs too though, in fact he has them pretty a lot in the previous albums, but I like the ones in which he puts personal feelings into more. The first song ever of his that I know is The Real Slim Shaddy. It's simply because my brother had a performance being a Slim Shaddy for his middle school graduation haha it was pretty funny :P

Till next time!

Tuneful Tuesday #7

Do you watch Copa del Mundo a.k.a the World Cup?

I watched an interview with Shakira the other day. She was so sweet and smart. Click here to watch the interview.

So if you do watch, do you get this excited when your favorite team scores?


Too bad that I can't watch all the matches since my owner doesn't subscribe the international lines and the local channel here only airs for the opening, semi finals and final. Well, anyways I'm on exam period at the moment so I'm really away from TV. Nonetheless, I'm rooting for Spain! Viva EspaƱa!!

I'm gonna watch the semi final 2 (Spain vs. Germany) this Thursday at 2.30A.M! So I'm planning to sleep earlier like 6p.m and wake up around 2a.m. I would smack my alarm (which in this case my cellphone) if I find myself just awake at 9a.m the next day!!
Ok not really.
Sort of.

Have a good week!
