Do you remember, dancing in September?

I will never make ridiculous plans ever again. See, I get disappointed whenever I'm not able to comply with my life plans. I'll try to be spontaneous when the need "to-be" arises.

Today had one of the most scorching hot afternoons, I woke up from my siesta with beads of sweat dripping down my chest and forehead. It might sound like I look like a pornstar, but trust me it's far from that. I couldn't use the lone AC unit in the house because my mom was sleeping in that room. I wanted to chill, she wanted to sleep.

95 days before Christmas. That's the 5th or 6th time I used that line today. It's a new photo-project, more in the lines of Project 365 (which I attempted to do, but failed miserably). It's also a "renewing myself" plan. I realized I was getting unhealthy in all human aspects, so I had to change.

Yay! I didn't eat rice today, but I did eat motherloads of carbs. From baked potato topped with corned beef, bacon bits and cheese to cheetos and a burger. Um excuse me miss, are you on a diet?

It's still September right?

Well hello there intarwebz and blogger blog. How are you? I haven't touched you for, what, a month or two already? I've been busy and I've been too lazy. Plus, my life haven't been so interesting lately. Many have happened, some are significant but not worth writing about. By the way I turned 19 last September 2, it's one of the worst days of my life. It feels weird to say "Hi, I'm Pauline and I'm 19 years old."

I told myself that blogging isn't an obligation. I'm not obliged to write about myself and swear and squee and spill out my heart's deepest secrets everyday. That's why I'm here, and I'm trying to make my life interesting again.

September 2, 2009 isn't the best day ever in my life. It's supposed to be galaxy trip into another blackhole, in other words, a transition. I had so many plans. I failed yet again. But I'm trying to change for the Nth time.

It's September 20 now, and it doesn't make any difference if I start today right? Though it's 18 days after my due date for change, It's still September 2 + 0.

You'll be seeing more of me.

      Book Bucket: Year 2

      Books Read: 2010

      Books Read: 2011

      Last year's Book Bucket list was very impressive, at least for me. It was a great accomplishment to have been able to read 29 assorted books, some were graphic novels. Literature is a great way to detach yourself to reality and as a self-proclaimed daydreamer, I'd like to delve more into the world of fiction.

      This year, my goal is to read 30 books or more. I started with a 50 book challenge, but considering my busy state right now (hospital training and all), I've settled on 30 books for 2011. I am also challenging myself to write a review for every book I finish. I'm giving myself much work, but it will definitely help me in terms of writing and being articulate. Come and see my progress here.

      1. How To Live in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu 
      2. Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
      3. Love is a Mix Tape by Rob Sheffield
      4. In The Floyd Archives: A Psycho-Bestiary by Sarah Boxer


      1. Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger
      2. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
      3. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
