emma; only girl in the world

What if?

I don't know if it still works, but check this one out. It's really cute.

I think the point of this was to show a feminist stance -- as it is from a feminist site -- by showing us that we really don't need a guy. And yes, I do agree with it perfectly. I can survive without one. I won't be a hypocrite though and say I don't want one. There's a big difference there.

However, what this little piece of animation made me think that what if my prince did come and this is what I did to him? Not exactly my happy ending right?

Lesson learned. Never jump off the castle and expect the prince to catch you. Because you never know if you could land on him and end up killing him.

Weighed Down

Well, at least I got to do my flash project. Sure, it took me about two hours to do it and I only have 30 minutes to accomplish the entire thing, but hey, I'm going to have to deal with it, right?

After this, I shall move on to my IW. I promise that tonight I shall finish it. My back is already hurting and my eyes are drooping. Due to sleeping so early in the morning, it took me forever to wake up to go to mass. Still, when I finish this, I shall be done with something, at least.

I can't believe it's already exams next week. It's not supposed to be this quick. It surprises me because the status messages of the younger batches are all saying study study study. I haven't even opened a single notebook! I know I should because this is already considered cramming, I just don't have the time.

Okay, so maybe I do, but I guess I'm not very good at balancing my work and my sleep. The only two aspects of my life that I do acknowledge. Thinking of it, all I have to do is do things one at a time, and before I know it, I shall have accomplished a lot.

Pietro is studying so seriously here and it amazes me how hardworking he is. I should start copying him, for sure. And he's third honors!!! Yeah boy! He's worked really hard for that and I feel so proud of him. I should start emulating his attitude.

My parents Pamy, Paola, and Pietro are going to Podium later. The older ones are listening to music, and Pao just wants to tag along. I want to tag along too. But mom said I had exams so I coudln't go. Grr.... Exams really suck!

Oh on a more romantic note, I think a lesson in the language of love is needed right now. A French lesson for everyone who bothered. I love you in French is, "Je t'aime." Some fine day, maybe I'll hear these words too. Right, Monesca? Because no matter what excuse is given, no one says this unless it's meant. Yes, I don't think this phrase is taken very lightly. Uttering these three far-from-simple words can create a temporary feeling of warmth or who knows what, but it's also got a ton of complication. Nevertheless, I'd love to hear these words one day. Hopefully from someone I do love too. Monesca, don't you agree with me?
