mood: fwee~

I rarely ever post here, now. I suppose it's because I don't know if anyone reads here at all. No one comments in my posts, no one leaves messages on the flooble, no one bothers... At least over at LJ I know people get to read my stuff.

Maybe I should... I dunno. Close down Bloodriot and permanently move to my LJ. I don't need a blog no one reads.

...Much less something I don't post in.

Almost 20 years.
listening to: the karaoke thing on TV
wishes for: To get in UST College of Education, damnit
mood: yarr..

So. I'm down to my last 27 hours as a teenager. Wow. It's... sort of scary if you think about it.. I'm turning the double decades! I'm getting more responsibilities and I still haven't.. grown out of this childish attitude of mine. I'm still immature, still bratty, still.. someone with a mindset of a 13 year old. I still get teenage angst attacks, I still get emo over things.. I'm still short and my voice is shrill... How can anyone think I'm 20? I mean, everyone I meet say I don't look my age. All of them say that I'm fifteen or something, and can't believe that I'm in college. Well, I don't blame them. Mostly. I suppose, I just look young for my age. But then again, there are people who don't look their age but act theirs. So how come I'm not one of them? Probably because of my upbringing...? I was raised by people who gave me what I wanted when I was a kid. I was raised by people who pampered me, fussing over me, doing things for me. At school, though, I led another life. I was a loner, mostly, especially during elementary. I never had people with me during lunch or recess. It was mostly me, my food and looking out of the window at everyone else. Sure, I sometimes played with the other girls or hung out with them.. But I was mostly alone. And then I was shoved into a world so different from what I was raised in. A rumor spread that some girl crushed on me. I was confused. I didn't really know what it meant, being raised in a conservative family. And then I learned about sex when I wasn't supposed to have learned about it yet. At the time, I was only supposed to know that when your mommy and your daddy love each other, they get a bloody bird to deliver the baby. Whut. SO yeah. My mind got corrupted at an early age. I acted all innocent at home, and not-so innocent outside of it. And then, highschool came. I sort of started to change. I became a little more rebellious, less religious and more... more of who I am now. I suppose.. I got a little worse. But then again, all I ever wanted to do was find myself.. And I feel that the environment here at home doesn't let me do what I need to do to be 'me'. But then again, who really is 'Rika'? Is she just someone trying to escape reality? Or is she someone trying to become someone she can never really become?

I, for one, wouldn't answer that question. Rika is Rika, whatever the explanation is. What makes Rika up is the things around her. Her past, her present, and everything in between and all around. That's what Rika is. Right? The good side, the bad side, the side Rika's never shown anyone else... That's Rika. Sugar and spice, not everything nice, though. Rika wouldn't like it, but that's how Rika is. Rika likes things that catch her eye, that tug at her heart, that speaks for themselves. It's a wide variety of things that make her up, and that's how it should be.

Aah, but then.. am I "Rika"?

^^; Aaaah, mou. I pulled another Shinji~ ^^;

Well, whut
listening to: Aya Ueto - Egao no Mama de
wishes for: Iinchou
mood: blargh! :D

Hello, peons. It's been a while. I've been updating my LJ like whoa lately. Whut. It's all the fangirling, I swear. I think I should call the LJ my fangirl blog xD I mean, it's all fangirling and nothing in reality.

So.. This would be my real life blog, ne? Wow.

So, I'm still at Kang's. I should have left for home yesterday, but after work, we got so tired and we slept for most of the day! :O We woke up and it was late and it's dinnertime already.. So I stayed another night. Good thing Francis is here, too. We'll be going home together later. Francis, by the way, was their neighbor when Kang's family still stayed at Makaturing. Since Francis and I would be going the same way, it's convenient for me! It's seven in the evening right now, and I'm worried about how we're getting home. I don't think staying another night here is good. It's like, abusing their generosity. D:

Nya, I was already lucky enough to have stayed two nights here. Making it three seems appealing but is too much.

I had fun, though. Kang and I have done a lot proving that we can read each other's minds and stuff. Also, during my stay here, I realized that my sister really did become Kong's classmate during kindergarten. Wow. I saw the picture. Wow. She still looked like a girly doll then. But now.. xD

Also... I really could never understand why Kang likes wrestling other than the fact that it's sweaty men groping each otherfrom UST. It's just.. EEEW. Big muscly sweaty men who make their manboobs twitch is just fucking GROSS, man. GROSS. EW.

Ah, I wonder if Mama's angry at me..I haven't really called home eversince coming here.. And I havent checked my celphone either. o__o; Ohnoes. xD

Goodluck to me~

listening to: KENN with the NaB's - Wake Up Your Heart
wishes for: Um. Cake. And Chocolates.
mood: *sweatdrop*

THE ONLY MOVIE THEY'RE SHOWING ON THE 18TH IS WATERBOYS. AND THE ONLY TIME THEY'RE SHOWING IT IS 8 IN THE EVENING. I forgot that the 33rd Nihonggo Speech Contest was going to be held on teh 18th as well (It starts at 2pm, Cinema 3, which is where Eiga Sai is held)


This means KARAOKE AT PODIUM. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. And then Waterboys in the evening. You guys can play as much DoTA as you want, but we STILL would go on as planned.

And don't forget the cake! I'm treating cake that afternoon! So, while you guys are eating cake, I'd be leeching off the WiFi and watching PaniSuta. Muharhar.

Here's the timetable I made up just now:
1000-1200 - Meet-up. Probably at PowerStation, like we always do.
1200-1300 - Lunch c/o Artoo.
1400-1430 - On our way to Podium
1430-1530 - Karaoke
1530-1600 - Looking for a place with cake. Cheap, too, so I'll have enough to go home.
1600-1700 - PaniSuta. I mean, Cake.
1700-1900 - Whatever.
1900-1945 - Dinner
1945-2000 - On our way back to Shang to watch Waterboys
2000-onwards - Waterboys at Shang

And then we go our merry way.

Unless you want to attend the speech contest? o___0

Go away, emo kid.
listening to: Nagayama Takashi - Haru ni Omoidashi Omou
wishes for: i honestly do not know
mood: ...

We fought, you ran away. "It's always like this," is what I thought.
All I could do is bid you farewell as you fled, unable to do anything more, I...

We're on a downhill slide; are you crying somewhere now, I wonder? Or are you actually somewhere waiting for me?
It's not like you'd ever take it back, you've made your decision...

Why couldn't I just have been honest with you? I should have gone after you.
But you weren't there, you weren't there down by the river, where the sakura blossoms dance.
Why couldn't I just have been honest with you? Standing there, trying to look cool,
With the spring breeze blowing against me, I'll seek you out.

The sakura blossoms blow around me as I search and search for you, growing tired, but all that's left... your image, back turned to me, still there, in my eyes.

I was wrong, but it's so like me--where are you now, with your back turned to me? I can't find you anywhere.
I just want to see your face once more, your smiling face.

Why couldn't I just have been honest with you? I should have gone after you.
If only it had been enough, but it just wasn't. I want to go back to that time.

Spring is the season when things are supposed to start,
But for me...I can't do anything but remember the past.

Why couldn't I just have been honest with you? I should have gone after you.
I'll be thinking of you in that season when the sakura blossoms dance.

Why couldn't I just have been honest with you? It's so long to wait, and I'm so looking forward to it.
The blossoms are falling, and you're just like the sakura, I'll be thinking of you in the spring.

-translations of Nagayan's song, Haru ni Omoidashi Omou, taken from here, as translated by fencer_x.

So I'm writing because I think that no one's ever going to read this. I'm not doing this to bash anyone, I'm not doing this to get anyone to hate me, or anyone else. I'm doing this because I have to. It's... Catharsis, I suppose.

Because it's hard being a friend for both sides

What was it that someone told me? Neutral Pacifism? Yeah, that one. Someone told me I wa a Neutral Pacifist. Because I don't want either side getting hurt. So in the end, I'm the one taking the pain. Just because I don't want anyone being sad.

I take it. And then smile. Because I don't want to sulk about it.



I want to say that I don't want anything to do with it, BUT I CAN'T.

FINE. Do what you want, go ahead. I'll take care of the other end, so that nothing will ever have to happen. But what if I can't handle it? Won't I be blamed because I let it happen?

I just.. I don't know.

Maybe you're right and I don't know you after all. I don't even know who I am. I don't know what to do anymore. I really want to say that I don't want a hand in this, but I can't. I'm your FRIEND. I don't want you to feel bad. Any of you.

Heck, I consider you guys more my FAMILY than the people whose blood I share.

I love you guys.. and I don't want us to fall apart because of this. I don't want ANY of you breaking, hurting, and I'd do ANYTHING just so that you WON'T. EVER.

But right now.. I don't think I can do anything anymore. Or at all.

That doesn't mean I'll not try anymore. I'll keep trying.

Even though I know that at one point, all of you would hate me. I still would try and keep us all together. Whatever it takes.

I love you guys. I really do.

I just really don't know what to do right now.
