Just thought of blogging

Last April 8 when I was on informal leave and I was walking around Cubao area, I went into this bookstore that has a lot of books. Actually I was looking for another copy of Da Vinci Code to replace my father's copy which I lent to an upperclass. Anyway, I spent about 1500 on books from that bookstore and aside from Da Vinci Code, I bought an anthology of Philippine Short Stories written by authors of this century. I bought the book because at that time I was fascinated with short stories plus I have a subject right now on Philippine Literature so I felt that book might help me; of course my usual liking for reading so a compilation of short stories might just give me the variety I need. Anyway, I wrote my short story for the Corps Magazine and somehow the events kind of introduced me to a new world where I think I can play to. I became so engrossed with thinking about plots of story that I want to write. So, I actually developed this liking to writing short stories, exploring the countless possibilities that its world can offer. I have decided to make another website where I can post the stories that I wrote and then possibly ask for comments maybe that way I'll improve my way of writing who knows, I just might win a Palanca in the future hahaha... again I'm dreaming but it could happen.

I also was able to get in touch to yet another one of the important ladies in my life. I saw her sister's account in friendster and from that I was able to get her number. Basically, I just like the feeling that I'm getting in touch with her although as before shes not really into texting and inasmuch as I want to call her, I have no money. Well, the reason why I am sharing this is that I really like the feeling of meeting people again. I bet if I'll meet her when I go on break we'll have a lot to talk about especially about the things that have happened to our lives since the last time we saw each other around 4 years ago. Before I forget, she is an important lady in my life because she taught me so many things about love, women and even relationships, I guess she does not know that maybe I'll tell her when I see her again, akala nya lang siguro I was just madly in love with her then. I hope she reads this.....
I'm being haunted again by the seemingly immature antics of some of the people in this Academy. Well, I just have to deal with the fact that although they seem to lack the breeding that is expected of them as the country's the best and the brightest, they still are my senior and leadership entails that one also knows obedience. I'm asking my classmates how to deal with this new development and my convictions stands still, I won't give him the chance to prove to himself that what he is doing is the right thing. I hope he also reads this.
I just learned today that I am one of the few who is still not deficient in any of our subjects. This morning we had our first major exam in Calculus and I think I answered that exam quite well, but of course I still have to wait for the results. Anyway, I want to go on privilege, at least now I know that I earned it because I'm not deficient not unlike before when most of my classmates went out so that they can maximize before the red grades starts to massacre our ranks. I do not know where to go well, I'll think of something.
And so this is it for now I hope to write some food for thought again rather than the "happenings" of my life. I think some wisdom that I derive from the experiences that I have.... Oh before I forget let us offer a one minute prayer to the late 2Lt Fabia who died this morning in an ambush, he was my classmate... may he rest in peace....

why do you ask your readers to offer a prayer for the soul of a dead man?
