so im back to loving a girl's worth. thanks to duster. they made me go back to my principles, that i think i lost like 4 years ago. and once again, im a feminist! :)

My favorite song in the album is automatrimonia because it highlights the woman’s decision to give importance to herself.

Dressed in lace, soft and white
All made up splendid and bright
Yellow flowers, golden ring
Center of joy is just one thing
Imaginary limo the ride of her life
In her mind the bells ring bright
Scent of love in for bloom
Empty room, absent groom
Girl in mirror floating in dust
Slowly dissolving in the mist of lust
Shattered pictures on the broken shelf
Says “I do!” to no one but herself
Outside the skies are gray and bleak
Crimson tears went down her cheek

I’m getting married to myself

(by Raymund Marasigan and Lourd de Veyra)

The irony of this song is that it was written by men. Now the question is, can men also be feminists themselves? I studied in the school of the holy spirit, an exclusive girl school, with feminism almost being imposed upon us. Last june 2008 i joined a sorority and once again the issue of being a feminist was raised. So for most part of my life I was trying to contemplate on feminism a lot. And i think that it is really difficult to know the inner-feelings of a woman if you’re not one but it seems that Raymund and Lourd were able to give justice to woman’s deep-inner thoughts.

Baby I See You Working Hard
I Want To Let You Know I'm Proud,
Let You Know That I Admire What You Do
The More If I Need To Reassure You, My Life Would Be Purposeless Without You
If I Want It (Got It)
When I Ask You (You Provide It)
You Inspire Me To Be Better
You Challenge Me For The Better
Sit Back And Let Me Pour Out My Love Letter

Let Me Help You
Take Off Your Shoes
Untie Your Shoestrings Take Off Your Cufflinks
What You Want To Eat Boo?
Let Me Feed You
Let Me Run Your Bathwater
Whatever You Desire, I'll Aspire
Sing You A Song
Turn The Game On
I'll Brush Your Hair
Help Put Your Do Rag On
Want A Foot Rub?
You Want A Manicure?
Baby I'm Yours I Want To Cater To You Boy

Let Me Cater To You
Cause Baby This Is Your Day
Do Anything For My Man
Baby You Blow Me Away
I Got Your Slippers, Your Dinner, Your Dessert, And So Much More
Anything You Want Just Let Me Cater To You

Can't Nothing Tear Us Apart
You're All That I Want In A Man
I Put My Life In Your Hands
I Got Your Slippers, Your Dinner, Your Dessert, And So Much More
Anything You Want, I Want To Cater To You

Baby I'm Happy You're Home,
Let Me Hold You In My Arms
I Just Want To Take The Stress Away From You
Making Sure That I'm Doing My Part
Boy Is There Something You Need Me To Do
If You Want It (I Got It)
Say The Word (I Will Try It)
I Know Whatever I'm Not Fulfilling
Another Woman Is Willing
I'm Going To Fulfill Your Mind, Body, And Spirit
I Promise You I'll Keep Myself Up
Remain The Same Chick You Fell In Love With
I'll Keep It Tight, I'll Keep My Figure Right
I'll Keep My Hair Fixed, Keep Rocking The Hottest Outfits
When You Come Home Late Tap Me On My Shoulder, I'll Roll Over
Baby I Heard You, I'm Here To Serve You
If It's Love You Need, To Give It Is My Joy
All I Want To Do, Is Cater To You Boy

law. just for the heck of it.

hmm.. i think im starting to actually love law. thanks to the readings commissioner sarmiento assigned us to read for legal philosophy! haha so the oh so stressing subject did something good for me huh?!

"if you don't take a passionate interest in the law, if you don't find it intellectually fascinating, challenging and inspiring, THE SOONER YOU GET OUT OF IT THE BETTER."

found that quotable quote in one of our readings. its so damn true. so clearly there's no way out. i just gotta love law, and hopefully law will love me back as well! hehe.

Crime is simply an adaptation to a capitalist society.

found that statement at ienne's blog. *clap clap, hands down*. astig! whatta strong statement, needs no further explanation. bow.

what we need is a genuine reform through a massive overhaul of the entire institution to get rid of the complexing problems in our society.

haha. okay. so much for being socially conscious.

i figured that a lot of people love you, so who am i not to love you too. RIGHT??? =)

but, why now? just now??? when ur leaving school na! huhu yeah maybe its just now that i learned how to read the signs. just now that i realized who wants me and who doesnt. too late i realized that...

^i love the way he goes out of his way just to see me at school.
^i love the way he drives me and my friends when there's a task we have to do.
^i love the way he defends me from the mean girls.
^i love the way he protects me from the rude boys.
^i love the way he sits patiently and wait for me to finish studying.
^i love the way he tries to fix my failing grades. (hehe)
^i love the way pouts his lips, his porcupine hair and his doggy sad eyes when he makes pacute or paawa effect just to get what he wants from me.

i kinda almost love the fact that he's gonna be a lawyer na. hmm.. or do i?

this is my most publicized and most active website on cyberspace. :)

the things i write here were true to me at the moment they were written. they may no longer hold true tommorow, depending on how life changes me, and what new experiences teach me. i am a work in progress, and nothing i put out today is absolute.

believe or agree with what i say only if it resonates with your own truth. disagreement is also welcome, but malice is not. discussion and ideas are always welcome. feel free to be heard using my chatbox underneath.

Nobody forces you to visit this site and read what i have to say. i simply ask you to be responsible for whatever you put out on internet, and to be aware of negative energy you might dispense out into the world. so if what you have to say is purely for destructive purposes, you can take your opinion somewhere else.

Rock my World.
