Female Dog

 thesis bitch 2

A gayer version of my Tumblr post.

I’m extremely sorry for the profanity (I vowed to never utter any on my blog) but I don’t think I could have put it more eloquently. Let’s put it this way, my arm is about to fall off from being being glued to my computer mouse all day, and I am still nowhere near done.

On the other hand, this is the first time I’ve attempted to use cutouts for graphic designing, and I’m quite happy with the results of my 10-minute experiment. I got the PSD cutout of the dog from Viva La Manika, thank you! :)

I should probably rest this arm of mine now.


I Dream of Lace


I just started this really simple DIY project. Before you all go thinking how I can possibly still be thinking of clothes at a time like this, I need to say that I plan to wear this for my thesis deliberations (provided the outcome is good enough) so no one can really say this isn’t thesis related, tee hee. XP

I am aching for thesis to be over. There are so many other things that I am itching to do, things that don’t involve me having to stay up at ungodly hours and still not be able to meet the deadlines that I set for the day. Things that don’t make me feel as helpless or as inadequate.

One of those things: TOTALLY REDO MY WORDPRESS THEME. I am getting sick of this layout, especially the header that I’m just finding really atrocious as of late.

On the Brink


This is by no means a legitimate blog entry, but I figured I would upload it anyway for the hell of it. I’ve  done nothing much else but stare at AutoCAD and Sketchup workspace, that even the simple joys of MS Paint was a welcome stress reliever . Add two mouse controllers hooked up to a single computer and Lando and I were able to steal away a few precious moments to play mouse pointer tug of war.

And if anyone else is confused, that bloody thing on me is supposedly an alien coming out of my belly.

Odds & Ends

Sorry for the lack of updates. After almost four days in Subic and another two days in Manila, I finally get to spend New Year’s in Naga, hurrah!

Now, I am supposed to be heading off to attend our high school batch reunion, but the magical text that I have deemed as my go signal hasn’t arrived yet, so I figured I might as well churn out a blog entry. Although I warn you, it’s a very random one.



I went on a sorta huge shopping spree yesterday along with the rest of my family at Megamall. I got tons of new stuff! You’ll be seeing them bit by bit when I post during the next weeks/months. We also ate at Dulcinea for lunch. I love cream puffs!



Check out my newly bejeweled phone! Thank you to my sister Zoe for giving me the stickers! I would like to think that it looks way better with them.



Zoe also got a deck of Studio Ghibli themed playing cards as a gift from Tita Ruthsie!



I dare anyone to find a card design cuter than this. I am very doubtful that there is.



We also received a bunch of Lip Smacker flavors! I got the Dr. Pepper one. Thank you!



Zoe has been quite busy this afternoon turning these erasers she got at Powerbooks into necklace pendants. I had bought quite a few erasers myself the past month and had turned a couple into rings.



I got a bit envious while she was making them but she was nice enough to give me this popsicle shaped one to keep for myself. I AM SUCH A BEGGAR.



Zoe and Claire (surely you guys know who is who).



So I’m just about done with today’s entry and I have still yet to receive a text. GUYS, WHERE ARE YOU?

For the Lulz

I have realized that I haven’t blogged randomness for a while, so here’s an old post from my Multiply account.  I figure since people might use content from that humble site of mine to blackmail the hell out of me one day, I might as well beat them to the punch right now.

A few disclaimers. This was more than a year ago, back during a time when:

  1. I thought I knew what fashionable meant.
  2. I weight 7o pounds or something like that.
  3. I was at the height of my Sandwich obssession.
  4. I had not yet fully discovered the joys of drinking alcohol.
  5. Nor have I discovered the numerous advantages of full bangs.
  6. Lando was still just an arki batchmate and occasional eyecandy classmate to me.

Okay the last one has nothing to do with the post, I just wanted to put it out there. XD

This is posted completely because nothing aside from thesis work has been happening the past few days. And I just wanted blog activity. :(

The Prodigal Tumblelog

I’ve never been one for consistency, and this particular quirk of mine seems to have manifested through my inability to maintain any of my online accounts for long periods of time.  If anyone has read my short bio on upper right side of this blog, I mentioned that it is the 6th time or such that I’ve tried to start a weblog, and I consider it an awesome feat in itself that I have been able to keep it up this far.

But because of the curse blessing that is the variety of sites that exist today, I have no less than 10 present varied accounts all across the internet, ranging from the social (Facebook), to the chismosa (Twitter) to the academic (Scribd), to the downright jologs (I still haven’t deleted my Friendster account). This has made keeping up with the Joneses and hardcore internet junkies  a real challenge, if not an impossible feat.

A site that I have alternately been leaving in the dust and picking up is Tumblr, which is what I consider to be a snappier, artsier version of a weblog.  It makes posting online content such as photos, music and videos a virtual breeze. I was pretty hooked on it during the first few months of my 4th year, and tried to resume posting during the recent summer. But alas, these endeavors were short-lived.

This time however, I want to test the age-old saying of three’s the charm.

Aside from a brand-spankin’ new layout, I have resolved that I would spend some of my computer time to post, but limit it to not more than five posts a day. However, that resolution doesn’t seem to be working so far, because I’ve already made a 6th post. Gah. But as they say, tomorrow’s another day.

I also decided to give Twitter another try. A special shoutout to sashalimuy/scott stuart for the speedy reply! It made me feel welcome. XD

I wonder how long it will be until I say “to hell with this!” and give up on everything all over again.

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.
