Hey there! I've been wondering for awhile if I should start each of my entries with the 'Dear Diary' expression. xP That would be awesome! But I won't do it.

As I said before, somewhere around the last year (...), my mood depends on the music I am currently listening to. At first, I thought it was just coincidence but I noticed that when I'm down and I listen to a cheerful song, I always seem to have a smile on my face. On the other hand, if I'm happy and I listen to a sad song, I am always frowning. *Weirdo here~*

This last week nothing much happened except... *sigh* I got an evaluation and I had an awful grade. What bothered me the most was that I though for sure I was going to have a good grade and then, from almost everything I got wrong,  I still think  that the right answers don't make sense! But this test was made by our government and it was a national one so my teacher had no fault with that. I don't blame her though. She is a nice teacher. She even tried to cheer me up after I got my test. She also said she would do what she could so this test wouldn't lower my final grade that much. In any case, I want to fucking kill my country's government.

And... I feel the need to write this... the new OVA of Ai no Kusabi is OUT!!! *fangirl squeak* I love that series so much it's almost criminal! I remember the first time i saw it (the old one) I skipped almost everything because I didn't like the plot, or the idea of a seme with long hair or a manly uke, and I absolutely hated it. But, sometime later, when my mind actually got grew up, I went back to watch everything and... sweet mother of God! That series has everything really. The only problem is the fact that you need to have an older mind to actually appreciate such masterpiece. It might be the best Yaoi series I have ever seen. Of course, really close to that spot is Maiden Rose (another yaoi series). That one though I prefer the manga. I just wish they continued it. *snif snif* What is it with me and tragic love?!

Now, I should probably go and start study because I have an exam tomorrow. Physics. I love Physics, much better than Chemistry. And the funny thing about that is that everyone seems to think that Chemistry is much better than Physics.

Also (geez, I can't seem to stop rambling when I start...) I decided to do a 100 prompt. challenge. Blame [personal profile] zaifie . She is the one doing them and I am in an urgent need of writing. I decided to use the characters from the original novel I am writing, which I shall post sometime soon enough. I will post the table in my next post.

Okay, last thing: why do people who write automatically consider themselves writers and the best that there is? I mean, come on, I write and I am a writer? I am automatically better than everyone else? NO! Why don't people see that? Also, why do people write 'I am a published author' in hopes of being seen as better than others? Who cares if they are published or something? I bet I never seen one single piece of their story in my whole life. And, what makes them think that if they are published, they are automatically better? They are not. I've seen people who write but don't consider themselves writers nor they have any of their works published that have better stories than most stuff I find published. Being published doesn't mean being the best. It only serves to work up their ego (to some people, of course).

Okay, the end, finished, fim, etc. Should probably go study right now... *too lazy*

Aww, don't feel too bad about the test. From my own experience, national tests aren't all that they're made up to be. Our English teacher reviewed us for it with a sample test from our government, and while checking he told us that all the given answers were wrong!

.. Maiden Rose was a yaoi series? o_o I should really watch that series in full. Never heard of Ai No Kusabi before though.

You're taking Physics already? Woah. I like Chemistry more, mostly because my Physics teacher couldn't teach to save his life. But I liked learning about optics.

Yaaay!! You're doing the 100-prompt challenge too. I'm excited to read your works!

Being a published author just means that they get paid to write, in my opinion. It's admirable, and certainly an achievement but you're right that it's not something they should be arrogant about. I've read a lot of unpublished stories online that were good enough to make me cry, and I've only less than a handful of books that elicited the same reaction. But people are human, and humanity is often less sophisticated than it thinks itself to be. Whenever I meet someone with a very unappealing side to them, I just write it off as their 'inner-jerk' -- something that I believe exists, even the slightest bit, in every person... Okay I'll just stop here, I got way too philosophical XD

Ai no Kusabi reminds me of this book I read before, Uglies by Scott Westerfield (I think was his name). Futuristic story with society being separated by their looks et al. At any rate, you've got me curious about it now @-) Will google it later.

Ooh, I'm still in my last year of high school XD Um, I guess that'd be your equivalent of 12th grade, yes? The science subject for our last year is, well, I'm not sure what it's called but it's basically environmental science. How Chemistry and Biology can be applied or be found in our environment. Then Pre-calculus, Economics, Physical Education, Christian Living, English (Mythology), Music... Um, Japanese as an elective. Then Creative Writing and Painting-- although technically they're my 'clubs' but it's a requirement and all of our work is graded so I still think they're subjects too. I think I might have Computer or Home Economics, but I'm not sure. OTL I'm still undecided about my college course, but I'm going to have to fill out application forms soon so I'm really nervous.

Hm, yeah, I wonder who? *smirk* Aah, I had that same problem too! But that's good, really. It'll get you a lot of practice, and you'll learn to scrap ideas for better ones. The funnest part of the challenge I think is how you can take the chance to try out different writing styles and find out what suits you, or what suits your story.

It does! Our chats are a great help in preventing potential breakdowns. :)

Ooh, no, my native language is actually Filipino. So, yeah, I live in the Philippines XD Haha, I'm surprised that never came up until now. English is my second language, but I'm more used to it than my actual mother tongue. I can speak colloquial Filipino pretty well, but I'm not so good at it when used formally/academically ;^; So I can totally relate with the not reading stuff in your own tongue.

That... is really confusing. I'm probably just rephrasing what you said, but I think I'm starting to get it. A bit. So the first four grades are called 1º Ciclo, the next two grades are 2º Ciclo, then so on and so forth? Secundaria is your equivalent of high school? Ooh, because high school is also known as secondary-level education. Right, that makes sense. Hehe, excuse my slowness.

You can do it! Want to try what I do? Try thinking of only one prompt, like the word itself, then form an image in your mind. If your mind starts wandering off, go back to your original image and isolate it from your other thoughts. From there, just let the words flow~

Or, if you're feeling quite emotional and want to ramble, you could try writing a scene instead. If it's something you want to get out of your system, you could write what happened, but in second or third person point of view so that you can... sort of detach or calm yourself. It works for me, sometimes. Hope it helps you :D

Filipino has a lot of similarities to Spanish, 'cause our country was conquered by the Spaniards for around 300 years. The languages sound similar too, I guess, although I've never learned Spanish so I can't say for sure.

I look forward to what reading what you come up with! :)
