its amazing how you can forget.


i had some free time today so i decided to read past posts on my blog. its amazing how you can forget things you did, said, or thought. amazing talaga.

..i almost forgot that i got to watch the incubus concert when the band was here! incubus!!!! wow. thank you justin.

..i've lost my phone thrice in the past two years. ack!

..i started blogging pala september 2003! and i only got oubli, my powerbook (check out my banner to see what oubli looks like!), a year after that.

..i realize that though things, conditions, and people surrounding me have changed, i'm the same bianca. happy ako na ganun. dapat naman happy ako na ganun diba? :p



that's the great thing about a "diary" i guess. it reminds you of the things that you chose to immortalize, and it leaves out the things that you chose to forget.

that's so true. i have 3 journals and a blog, and i always browse back rereading my entries. then i'd find myself laughing, smiling or saying "what the f!! why did i do that?! what was I thinking!!". makes you how you change and grow.

haha. i've been keeping a journal since i was in grade school. back then dumadiary pa ako ng mga notebook na de susi, lol. when bagyong reming hit us my diaries, old letters and cards from friends were among the first things that i looked for sa binaha naming bahay. grabe, kahit nagdikit dikit na pages nung iba and naghahahalo na ink, ok lang. i came across several hilarious entries that i made over the past years and natawa na lang ako sa sarili ko. diaries are excellent reminders that you're human and it's okay, and life (inspite of the s*it that happens)isn't bad at all :)

Haay naku korek ka jan! I remember when I started having my diary, I would lock it pa inside my dresser kasi pilit na gustong basahin ng iba! Until now I still have it all and whenever I have nothing to do, I read them again and it never fails to draw a smile on my face.

It feels great that I always relate to you.

By the way, I want to greet you ADVANCE HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (Si Big Sis kasi ayaw ako isama! Hehehe! Peace Bhitzs! Also, Happy Women's Month to everyone! Pabati na rin sa mga Biancanatix, one year na tau peeps! Yahoo!)

myckle said...

I agree! That's one of the regrets that i have...if only i started writing down all my previous activities and experiences edi sana now i can laugh and look back with all the fun and struggles dba? and also, when i get old..i have something to remind me that i had a blast during my younger years.
When im idle here at work...i also read the previous posts...lolz..

superkadupermeklot said...

yeah. i totally agree;)
hey, ate bianca. i hope we can be online friends and sorts:D
i study in ateneo;) hehe. maybe that could be a good start.

Linnor said...

I so agree... it's like having an external hard drive or repository of those fleeting but precious captured moments...

skulgirltrx said...

Amen to that! =)

...that inspite of life's joyful insanities and surprises, i can still afford to embrace it and had it documented...

celebrate life and stay fabulous, Biancs! =)

Cathe said...

You striked that one correct.

I am reading my past posts every now and then, and it reminds me of things that I did. :)) And you can't help but laugh at some!

And oh, I first heard the world blog because of you! Thank you for introducing me in this blog world!

just L.E.E. said...

yeah...ganun din ako...it's so cool though...kinda scary too when you posted something na ayaw mo naman palang mabasa ng iba...pero that's the great thing about it...btw, didn't know na bro mo pala si JC...wow...that's so cool...u both are in a debate show...that's so cool!!! anyway, more power to you and your blog...it'll be cool to see it 10 years later with all your archives...

swimmah_brat said...

sooo true. i once made the hugest mistakes by ripping out the pages of my diary after a bad break-up. turns out the memories, even the sad ones were too sayang to waste after one horrible ordeal...

Miles said...

Hi bianca! Welcome back to the blogging world, we sure did miss you here. :)

freyti said...

haha..ika nga ni NEL ng PBB AMAZING and in "greek word" BONGGA..haha..loko talaga..
anywei,same here...i just realize na mas marami pa pala akong naishare dito sa networld kesa sa mga taong close ko!hehe

tracy said...

yeah, you're right. :) I made a terrible decision of tearing the pages of the diary I kept 5 years ago though.. natatakot kasi akong basahin ng parents ko kaya pinunit-punit ko na lang.. sayang, grade 2 pa lang naman ako nun.

I made Multiply and Xanga sites with same users IDs instead..

oh, and do you remember your old Xanga? I saw that one too.. :)

best thing about a having a diary is that you can relate your innermost thoughts and experience without the fear of being judged...

so i read my diary again...it was full of endless contradiction with what feels good, and what feels right, and the constant hits and misses in my decisions... but if there's one thing i've realized, it's never let go of hope...after everything, today's hurt will just be tomorrow's yesterday experience...trust me, since im here holding my diary, laughing and reliving the past...In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.

thanks bianca :)...it's always nice to look back remember how i came to be what i am now :)

VJ said...

I didn't know that I can have a cyber bestfriend pala na nakikinig at natatandaan ang lahat na sinasabi ko sa kanya --> BLOG (ONLINE JOURNALS!)

Isabella Mari said...

i agree ate bianca!

minsan din i read my past entries, and napapasmile ako and natatawa cos di ko inakalang naisulat or natype ko yon. :) it just makes me realize changes in me as i grow up :)

markymark2099 said...

Welcome back to blogging Bianca! I just came back from a whirlwind trip of my own...Japan, Hong Kong, Philippines (inc. Boracay), Indonesia and Singapore. Back at home doing the usual. I totally agree about these online journals...mainly as a reminder for me on what I was like back in the past. Hope you have a great year and keep up the blogging!

ive been blogging since 4th year high school, that time hirap na hirap pa kong gamitin blogger and i was just using plain html and manual archiving. minsan natatawa nalang ako pagbinabasa ko ung mga old entries, sabe ko nalang sa sarili ko, "ay ang drama ko pala!" hehe. ang downside cguro ng pagbblog is when you blog about something you dont like or kung may kinakainisan ka... minsan ung mga taong involve sa blog entry mo nago-over react then kung ano ano na sasabihin. hay. anyways dear, kung masaya ka sa ginagawa mo, (ndi lang sa pagbblog) tuloy mo lang... :) cheers!

RightKindOfLove said...

So true...I tried keeping a diary online or kahit handwritten, ang hirap! hahaha...but looking back to the small notes I made now and then, minsan napapangiti ako...natatawa pag nagrereminisce...nalulungkot lalo na pag naaalala ko ung mga sad moments sa buhay...looking back...It made me who I am now...A better person...Keep writing!

VJ said...

Bianca, Congrats for making it sa list ng Women of Allure (The Philippine Star, March 4,2007 issue). Astig!

tring said...

you're alive again! :) recently ko lang nacheck blog mo. hehe.


things change, sometimes change happens too fast, but there are certain things (not everything) in people that will never change, it may be being a kid at heart or a kuya's girl for you, or being a giddy optimistic heart and a daddy's little girl for me....the things that dont change keep us grounded...and our blogs and diaries remind us about them.


advanced happy bday bianca! God bless :) mwah! :)

bhitzs said...

Biancs parang 'di ako makarelate hehe i've never kept a diary in my entire life kasi...naalala ko lang yun mga past experiences whenever i have a chance to talk with my friends...mas gugustuhin ko kasi magsulat ng stories than to write the daily happenings of my life. well its kinda sad nga lang that i wont have anything to read about my past when i would be 50 yrs old hehe...oh thats life...there's no room for regret.


but there's one thing i'll never forget even though i wasn't able to write it on a diary...i was able to watch the PDA Grand Dream Night because of the ticket that you gave me haha thank you very much Bianca!mwuaaah!

Let me be the first one to greet you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIANCA!!!

jodel said...

its nice to have a diary. . .though some might find it funny. . .
it contains a lot of things. .
secrets,adventures,etc. . .
but for me nothing is funny coz it feels good to go back in the past, knowing what we have done and how far have we gone through with our life. . .=)

MelaCane said...

hi bianca-

good thing about philosophy is that youd start asking questions you never thought youd ask and find out the answer years later. The answer you found might not even suffice whatever there is to fill. Keep on rockin' girl.
God Bless.

damien said...

retracing your steps through time is surely one way to know where you stand today. i agree totally. and hey about that phone loss lemme share a tip, make an account at ZYB and follow the instructions. You can setup your phone and all your contacts will be safe and mind you for no charge et all.

Nina Erica U. Jimenez said...

it is amazing how writing can make you feel better sometimes... a stress reliever... a friend who listens... and like you said, when you forget, it reminds you of so many things including the person that you really are.

grabe hanga talaga ako sa inyong mga napanatiling buhay ang blog sa kabila ng lahat... eh yung blog ko ayun patapon sobrang tamad talaga ako magsulat. ang pagsusulat ay hindi para sa aking kaya hanga ako sa mga writer eh.. masaya na akong walang nakakabasa ng blog ko, pag nabasa kasi nila yun comment lang siguro nila "kaw ba talaga nagsulat nyan? yan ba talaga laman ng utak mo?" hmp... kaya eto ako nakikibasa ng ibang blog....
