A perfect birthday gift for a bookworm + One Piece addict. Hehe. :) Materials I used : (1) Bond Paper (2) Pencils and Fine liners for the drawing (3) Watercolor Pencils (4) String (5) Puncher (6) Scissors (7) Money for laminating haha
These past few weeks made me feel exhausted. English week has come to an end. I already witnessed 4 “major subject activities” end right before my eyes. Our section won the finals in Sabayang Pagbigkas during Filipino week, even though we thought ‘we don’t stand a chance among these people’. I was the one took the photos of the contestants of Bb. at Ginoong Agham during Science Week. I tried to decorate our bulletin board — which I’m not good at — during Social Studies week. (I don’t know if there’s such thing as ‘Social Studies week’ but yeah I guess you get the point.) Then our most recent event, the English week. Our section had a very hard time to practice for the Speech Choir because our leader is also the director for the Live Museum. Even so, we managed to compete for the finals round and unexpectedly won as champions which I find hard to believe. Then here’s the Live Museum, which is the main event of the week.
Who the fuck are you to take my happiness away from me?
You deserve someone who listens to you, hears every word and knows what to do. When you’re feeling hopeless, lost and confused, there’s somebody out there who will.
I know (that person’s) out there, looking for you.
Someday, you’ll find (that person), I swear that it’s true.
Manila by night. Ate dinner with my family while seeing this wonderful view. (PS. That one star above everything else looks so pretty. It’s like Taiga from Toradora.)
What is it like to have a friend? A person whom you can trust in almost everything. A person who would actually be there for you at times when you need them the most. A person who will laugh with you until your guts fall off. Oops, I guess the qualities above doesn’t actually fit for a friend. It kinda sounds more of what characteristic a best friend should have. But yeah, I just want to have friends.. specifically someone who would be willing to be there permanently. (well, somehow?) Is that a little way too much to ask for?
I admit, I get pretty jealous whenever I see group of friends who’s been together for like years already. Watch movies, hang out, go to someplace else and have fun together. At first I would say “Wow.” and then i’ll be like.. “sigh… why can’t I have one too.” then I’ll cry about why I don’t have friends like that and stuff. I mean, who gets amazed and cries at the same time?! I’m so sick and tired of being somebody’s friend. I always cherish my friends.. always.. but at the end of the day they’ll only end up using me. I’m not some kind of disposable cup people only use whenever they need them for their coffee then throws it away after they finish drinking it all up! I always feel so used and I fucking hate it!
I want.. a real friend.
What is it like.. to have one?
I’m eager to find out.
Some stuff during semestral break. (Which I was too darn lazy to blog about)
Days before the end of semestral break, we ate at my grandfather’s all time favorite restaurant. It’s his birthday anyway so we can’t argue with that now, can we? :)
I only like the sad songs (from the rock bands no one knows)
No one gets me like the sad songs (when I’m lost and I’m all alone)

3.) What do you use in editing your photos? How do you edit them?
Photoshop Cs5, I use my own 'curves' or experiment with other adjustments such as the levels and exposure. I sometimes add 'black & white' and turn it's opacity to 10%
4.) Why did you change your URL?
Personal reasons like unwanted visitors, stalkers and strict school I guess? And I thought maybe my translated name to Japanese could resolve all that. Also maybe because I’ve had enough of ‘taintedrainbows’ hahaha
5.) Where do you buy your books?
PS. I live in the Philippines
For Keri Smith books such as Wreck This Journal, you can buy them in Fully Booked, Powerbooks or Bestseller. For John Green books, you can find them in your nearest National Bookstore.
6.) Where did you get your theme?
It's a theme by arreter.tumblr called enigma. Mm.. I think I overedited the theme too much? Hahaha. I've been using this theme for a year now. But I really recommend arreter's themes. It's very simple and easy to modify.
7.) How did you do this thing under your ask box?!
I got it here (click)
