Close Encounter of the Stupid Kind

Just to reiterate my Facebook status. Sa mga hindi pa gets and are curious enough to find out more, read on.

It all started with a game called Surviving High School.


I had recently downloaded the trial version of the game for my iPhone, and Lando and I were having fun playing it during our dinner at Sweet Inspirations last Friday. I kept putting my phone on the table so that both of us could see the screen. The trial was finished by the time we finished our food, so both of us went home and I immediately slept upon arriving, not giving anything another thought.

The next day, upon instinct, the first thing I did upon waking up was to look for my phone. So imagine my shock when I couldn’t find it in my bag that I had brought the night before.

Of course, I panicked. Did I leave it at the restaurant? Or did it somehow fall out of my bag on the way home? I honestly couldn’t remember. I called Sweet Inspirations immediately, but the receptionist said to call back in the afternoon because they still had to check. I call my mom soon after to tell her what happened, and she said they were going to have my sim blocked just in case.


Truth be told, I wasn’t devastated that much at the thought of losing my phone. Granted, it was an expensive one, but I was much more fixated at the fact that I had lost yet another possession of mine due to carelessness and stupidity. As if the happenings during our Japan trip wasn’t enough. And I was even more embarrassed to let my parents know that I had another mishap. As if I haven’t given them enough reasons not to trust me.

It just made me think: When will I ever learn? Ano pa bang dapat mawala sakin just to make me learn my lesson?

I honestly didn’t know what else to do. Needless to say, I got depressed the entire day yesterday.


Around 4pm yesterday, I found my phone. It had fallen to the floor underneath clothes and sheets. It was drained of battery, but otherwise okay. I didn’t lose it after all.

But somehow, this did little to appease me. Yes, I didn’t leave it this time, but the fact that I was so unsure of how I lost it, and how I became so sure that I had lost it one way or another, just proves how lax I am with my belongings. It has been a problem of mine for as long as I can remember.

If anyone knows of any way that I could somehow battle this problem, I would really appreciate it if you share it with me.

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
