We found a church! the name's FFAC for First Filipino Alliance Church! its really awesome there! there are alota filipino kids our age and the people are sooo warm welcoming! btw, me and my sis are in the ministry already.. soo cool! i'm playin the guitar again and sometimes i sing back up, my sis is getting better and better in keys and she's becoming a "kuya bobot" here! like telling people when to repeat or what would be a nice drum beat. speaking of drum beats.. im gradually becoming better and better in the drums. some people even say i should play at the main service. but i dont know.. maybe some other time. anyway, yesterday, i taught our youth drummer Abby how to play the bass! she got it in less than 5 minutes! it was pretty cool.
School's ok. i have math, social studies, chem, bio, english. thats about it! they dont really make you take courses you dont really need! like i dont need physics for nursing/medicine. so yeah, its pretty awesome. i've got friends too! some fellow asians and some white canadians. funny, asians here befriend their fellow asians.. its just how it goes!.. at school, im a freakin loner! it sucks. sometimes, when im not with my sister, i am alone. no, not really sometimes but most of the times!! i dont know, its really different when making friends in the Phils and here. coz in the phils, for me, its a good thing to "feel close" to someone you just met. ya know that "FC" or "feeling close" thing? its actually somehow helping coz atleast you know how that person acts around people. its better than trying to reach someone and trying so hard to meet their standards. thats my case right now.. but im really thankful for those others who keep me company when they know im alone. :D
going back to studies, its not really hard.. im not in honors, i think im average.. i just finished mid terms last week and surprisingly, math was the easiest! and i shouldnt have studied for that if it wasnt for my mom who screamed at me when i was in the computer the night before the exam! made me realize that parents dont shout at you for no reason! haha.
i have a part time job now and its soo fun! i work at Baskin Robins.. an ice cream parlor! incase you dont know, its like dairy queen but we have more selections. its really awesome working there! i have two bosses. They're brothers and both chinese. Sam and George. They're really fun! and so nice to me! Their families work there too. So yeah, pretty much im surrounded by chinese people!! but there are non-chinese people working there too! haha! like my friend Ashley. she's canadian.. 2 years younger than me and yet one time asked me,
"Do you go to parties?"
"Uhh. yeah sometimes"
"Well have you gone to ones that has beers and weeds?"
"what the crap!? heck no! have you?"
"how long have you been drinking?"
"umm. i dont know, since i was 12 i guess.."
12?? holy cow. that aint right!! 12 year olds shouldnt be drinking! they should be doing sports or getting busy with some activity. btw, speaking of sports, man! kids here have skinny legs!! and to make it even sad for a body builder's point of view, they wear the hip new style of pants, the skinny jeans! im not only talking about girls here, but even guys!! yes, they wear skinny jeans too with their skinny legs! unfortunately, for me.. i dont work out as much either.. winter makes it hard to go around, and plus, i dont have the equipment here at home. not like back in the Phils. but i still make sure i eat the right amount of food and i do sit ups almost everyday! i do not want to have a bulgy tummy. may it be my ridiculous looking hair, thats alright! my short height, thats ok too! but to have a bulging tummy, no way jose! sometimes, when i forget to exercise in about 3 weeks i see lines in my tummy, not because of abs! but because of the fat being squeeshed into each other when i sit and crouch down producing horizontal lines that are seen even when im not sitting and crouching down! it aint a pretty sight! call me vain about my muscles, dont care.. atleast i look out for my health, my fit and my discipline.
Christmas and New year was all good. We celebrated with some church friends. It wasnt as energetic as spending occasions with my relatives back in the Phils, but it was ok. atleast there were friends our age that we shared some laughs with :)
I didnt know Dance Dance Revolution is so popular here. Like in the Phils, its no big deal.. We even hesitate doing it because we feel somewhat embarrassed playing it. But here, they dont care if they play it out in the open with alota people staring at them, no matter how good or how sucky they are! its pretty awesome here. Back in the Phils, when i bring packed lunch at school, i dont know why but i get embarrassed. its like a stereotype that says "haha! packed lunch?? what a loser!". But here, amazingly, at school, people my age even older, bring tupperwares (is that the right spelling?!) and eat happily as they want. Coz in here, its not how you look, coz people here dont really judge, its about thinking practical and knowing better. thats one of the reasons why i really like this place! :D
And for my last part of the blog, i'd put the one thing people in the Phils always ask me whenever i get the chance to chat with them over the net. "May boyfriend ka na ba?". well, NO! i do not have one and i do not want one.. YET. ofcourse i'd like to have one, but not right now... still waiting for God's perfect timing. I've been hesitating to look at guys and *cough* admire the natural beauty of God's creation (some jerk who likes looking at girls said that), coz its just pointless.. I mean, if I go dead serious in a relationship right now thats not even God's plan for me, then i would be wasting time, and tears for something thats not even right. So might as well wait and wait for the perfect one. I wouldnt worry. A friend once told me, "oh di ang tagal nun??" or in english, she basically says, "what?! you're willing to wait for such a long time!?". Well, i dont care. I know well in my heart that God would give me His perfect choice in His perfect timing! Im not rushing. Coz i know when that time comes, heck! it WILL be worth the wait!! its weird coz its like i am so not interested in a relationship right now and yet i cant wait for God's perfect timing. hahaha! its a weird statement eh? <--- no, canadians dont always say "eh". haha. Here's an ending for my blog for today. How I miss blogging! haha! no, i dont really miss it.. im just too lazy. well, thanks for reading man!! Hope you have a good day today!! God bless!!
