Results for Name Generator

What your first name means: Rebellious, bitter (shocking!)

Your number is: 3
(i'll add this other infos which are somehow true)
An Expression of 3 produces a quest for destiny with words along a variety of lines that may include writing, speaking, singing, acting or teaching; our entertainers, writers, litigators, teachers, salesmen, and composers. You also have the destiny to sell yourself or sell just about any product that comes along. You are imaginative in your presentation, and you may have creative talents in the arts, although these are more likely to be latent. You are an optimistic person that seems ever enthusiastic about life and living. You are friendly, loving and social, and people like you because you are charming and such a good conversationalist. Your ability to communicate may often inspire others. It is your role in life to inspire and motivate; to raise the spirits of those around you.

The negative side of number 3 Expression is superficiality. You may tend to scatter your forces and simply be too easygoing. It is advisable for the negative 3 to avoid dwelling on trivial matters, especially gossip.

The characteristics of #3 are: Expression, verbalization, socialization, the arts, the joy of living. (so-so)

Your Soul Urge number is: 7 (wow! seven!)
(added info lang)
With a number 7 Soul Urge you are very fond of reading, and retreating to periods of being alone and away from the disruptions of the outer world. You like to dream and develop you idealistic understandings, to study and analyze, to gain knowledge and wisdom. You may be too laid back and withdrawn to really succeed in the business world, and you will be much more comfortable in circumstances that are tolerant of your reserve, your analytical approach, and your desire to use your mind rather than your physical being.

You are very timid around people that you don't know very well, so much so at times that casual conversation and social situations can be strained. You tend to repress your emotions to the extend that some people have a good bit of difficult understanding you. You tend to be very selective with friends and you don't easily adapt to new environments or to new people very quickly.

The negative traits of the 7 include becoming too much the introvert and isolated from others. *this definitely hit home*

Your Inner Dream number is: 5

Meaning of your Inner dream number:
You dream of being totally free and unrestrained by responsibility. You see yourself conversing and mingling with the natives in many nations, living for adventure and life experiences. You imagine what you might accomplished.

Now, I'm tagging Pot, Camille, Pam, Karla, and Deanne.

Thank you Tina, if it weren't for you I wouldn't have anything to post for today. ^_^


:: Tantra ::

Recently, I've been too caught up between my OJT and my thesis. I'm getting pretty much tired and so I often tell my boss that I won't be coming in for a few days since I'm busy working on my thesis, NOT!

Anyway, I became amused with this new game my friends are now hooked on. Wala na kasi akong mga kalaro sa DotA, they're all into Tantra kaya napasali na rin ako. I like my 2nd character, an archer. I'm so confident with my character since I totally adore archers, I'm an avid greenarchers fan too. Hehe.

My character is an Asura. Coming from a Hindu mythology, the Asura are a group of power-seeking deities, sometimes misleadingly referred to as demons. They were opposed to the devas. Both groups are children of Kasyapa. The name is cognate to Aesir, which implies a common Proto-Indo-European origin for the Asura and the Aesir.

Oh, I'm interested in different kinds of mythologies too. Whether Roman, Greek (wherein most gods and goddesses are confused with the Romans), Norse, Celtic, Asian and the like.
May mango float sa bahay, I guess I'll be munching on those later. Wee. ^_^


:: happiness ::

I've constantly been looking for this thing called happiness. Fulfillment. Satisfaction. It seems there's always this emptiness, a hole that needs to be filled. With something. I'm not quite certain if it is with something, or someone.

So, I am on a search, to find answers to this inquisitive mind of mine.

La dee dah, dee dah.


:: Happy Monthsary ::

May induce vomitting, please have your paper bags ready.

Sorry kung di ako nagparamdam buong araw, basta alam mo na kung ano yung sinabi ko sayo. Ingat lagi.

I'm currently working on these, just click on the links and kindly tell me what you think is better. ^_^















note: though everything looks the same, may slight changes.


:: AGLOCO ::

I recently joined AGLOCO because of a friend recommended it to me. I am now promoting it to you because I like the idea and I want you to share in what I think will be an exciting new Internet concept.

AGLOCO’s story is simple:

Do you realize how valuable you are? Advertisers, search providers and online retailers are paying billions to reach you while you surf. How much of that money are you making? NONE!

AGLOCO thinks you deserve a piece of the action.

AGLOCO collects money from those companies on behalf of its members. (For example, Google currently pays AOL 10 cents for every Google search by an AOL user. And Google still has enough profit to pay $1.6 billion dollars for YouTube, an 18-month old site full of content that YouTube’s users did not get paid for!

AGLOCO will work to get its Members their share of this and more.

AGLOCO is building a new form of online community that they call an Economic Network. They are not only paying Members their fair share, but they’re building a community that will generate the kind of fortune that YouTube. But instead of that wealth making only a few people rich, the entire community will get its share.

What's the catch? No catch - no spyware, no pop-ups and no spam - membership and software are free and AGLOCO is 100% member owned. Privacy is a core value and AGLOCO never sells or rents member information.

:: Thank God ::

After forty eight years of waiting for the blogger main page to load completely, finally, finally.. I am logged in. It's like I've been away from my home. Hayy, what a relief it is to know I can blog again. I got a bit annoyed at the connection thing.
Anyway, good thing I've written something while I was busy watching the boob tube.

Some TV commercials are somehow funny. Annoying too cheesy, but still it's funny. Well, funny enough for me to think of other things that would actually happen other than what was presented on the commercial. Hehe.


The day I read about Ely Buendia's (Eraserheads frontman) sudden heart attack made my heart stop for like, 2 seconds.
But good thing God has shown once again his great power, as He helped Ely recover from that heart-breaking situation.
I was never a band-fan, neither was I prone on getting highly addicted to a group of guys strumming, drumming and singing along. But this guy, this guy Ely is truly a remarkable person. He has been a highly respected icon and is still one too. And I know myself, I only give recognition and appreciation to those who really deserve it. I know talent, I know soul, and this guy is packed with a lot of it. He has made a very huge impact to the industry as well as to me. With his raw and as-if-just-a-conversation type of songs, who wouldn't take another peek at them, the immortal Eraserheads. His compositions has raised and made potential and worthy up and coming bands. He has contributed so much to the music industry. It was devastating to know of Eraserhead's disbandment, but I guess we'll just have to understand and support whatever their decision was. Though, it was relieving enough to hear and see him still performing and producing more songs for the entire nation, heck, even for the world to hear. May God Bless you more Mr. Ely Buendia. God still wants you to touch more lives and influence those youngsters with your kind of talent. He wants you more to be just than an icon. Indeed, you are a force to be reckoned with. ^_^

I've started on my On tje Job Training at a friend's shop. I'm based on Graphics Design. It's really embarassing, but I don't have that much strong background on designs and stuff. Hayy, I need to improve. Aja to me.

I know you missed me.


:: Thank You note ::

This is a Thank You post to all those who happens to pass through here. For those who finds enough time to just read whatever it is I blab about and for those who were consistent in commenting on my posts. A big hug, and a gazillion (if there ever was) thank yous!.. ^_^

Just recently, I received an email from my Tita. My ever childhood nightmare. As a kid, I was so afraid of her. Forget the boogeymans, forget the ghouls and ghosts. She was far more the worst experience ever. Although I must admit that this was because I've been one bad kid before. She had had fights with my other uncle and with my mom because of me. She was the spanking-type to implement discipline. I've suffered roughly before, but being the quiet kid I never said anything since it was part my fault anyway. Bruises and wounds, that's what I got. It was discipline. As a kid, it was torture.
But we got along well now. Remember from my orevious post, about me taking care of my tita at the hospital? It's her. I often tell myself that because of those things she did to me before she's paying for it now. I thought that if anyone messed with me, they'd end up like her. But then, I realized that it was a really mean thing to say and that I've come to know the bubbky-weird tita I never knew. I was a bit surprised to know that she has a Friendster account (and yes, she added me).
And because of all this crashed internet connection thing, I blogged at Friendster. The 2 posts before this were what I wrote at Friendster. And within a couple of days after posting them, I checked my mails and i was really surprised (as in to the max), that she emailed me. The subject was "Galing mo darl". I was a bit hesitant to read the email since it kinda gave that mocking impression on me. I thought that maybe I did something wrong and she will yet again reprimand me. But I still read it, imagine my amazement to what she wrote..

"Hi Darl.Read ur blog at friendster, and gosh was I surprisedto know ur talent in writing! Very good!!! Do continue exploring the horizon, and right you are, be a better you!I did try posting a comment at friendster but the connection isnt that good and so I just emailed u tolet u know that I am so proud of u.....do hope this wont get to ur head ha! A swollen head wont get u nowhere, always maintain a low profile. As it is you've come along way and Im so glad at your progress.Just bear in mind that being in good in whatever u do is coupled with spiritual backup, dont forget that! Do good always, listen to your mom and to everyone who wants u to be a fine young lady. And dont forget Darl that even when I do go occasionally get mad at u, uknow that I will always love u. Remember that! U may think that u are always the butt of my anger but u know its for your own good. K? Till the next email....

Tita Guapa (Hehehe)"

I literally shouted, being in a room with my friends, with utter amazement and gladness. It's little things like this that makes me feel a whole lot better. Knowing that at least I've been doing something right. Happy shalalala!

So in conclusion, love is a physical thing. Hehe. So expect a lot of beating from me, just so you'll know how I feel for you. Hehe. ^_^



:: What A Journey It Has Been ::

I'm proud to say that I can now vote. What a journey it has been, literally.
Tina informed me at about 10 am Decemeber 30 that THAT was the last day for the registration for a voter's id. I got up and ready so fast, my mom even scolded me about why I didn't register earlier. I couldn't answer.

Anyway, so we were there at the Magsaysay Park, where I swore never to go back to since the area was really dangerous. I mean, with all those hooligans living near there. We saw tons of kids our age there, waiting for something and so we lined up too. Not knowing which District was which. From here on, I have wanted to complain about the unorganized system of the Comelec. They handed out forms and the people acted all crazy, grabbing each paper they could see, as if it was money that was being given away. Me and Tina decided to NOT continue on for that day, since one of the police officers said that there were no more applicaton forms. As we walked away, bearing in mind that we will return the next day, we wondered that how can they run such a system and tell the people that there weren't any more forms when in fact the working citizens here in Davao has been paying and contributing so much. How can they not have enough budget for this sorts of things. I told Tina, there was a conspiracy behind all this. (hehe)

December 31, 2006. I didn't sleep at all, I got dressed at around 1:30 am. Supposedly I was going to eat at Beiah's house, unfortunately my mom told me it was too risky to go out that early, and so I just lied down and watched TV. I left at about 4:30 am. I went to Tina's house so we could go together along with her friend (who by the way wa a really big help to us). Seeing from afar, people had already piled (take note, not line, but pile) up. Waiting for the gates of the park to open. When it's strictly supposed to open at 8:00 am. We waited there for about 3 hours. Good thing it wasn't that hot and being small is a great thing since I could just easily use a taller person as my shade. (hehe). I didn't have anything to eat that day, so i munched on some fresh mints Tina had with her. While standing there, in a crooked line, there were a lot of annoying people there, cracking unsolicited jokes and talking as if there was no tomorrow. My ghulay! Buti na lang I kept my composure, else I would've screamed my head off.

The gates opened and people were like, running towards the office. Running like mad, as if there was a Tsunami phenomena. Really, if you were only there, you can see how stupid people really are. We walked normally, looking for any line. And so we got in the line as well. Waiting, under the slowly burning rays of the sun, for our turn to get the forms. May sumingit, some pushed and some were just plain unhygienic. Haven't they ever heard of a deodorant? A body spray perhaps? We had to be persistent in getting a form. But I was too weak to continue on with all the standing and smelling of those horrendous scents. Syet. Mix dog poo and a pig sty plus a sweaty underarm right beside you. Who would stand such unsanitary situation. Anyway, I told Tina I couldn't breathe anymore since it was already suffocating to just be in there. Iniipit na kasi nila kami, to think we have the bodies of a kid! No mercy talaga. I looked for the nearest canteen, I figured I was getting dehydrated. Tina joined me after a few minutes, I guess she couldn't stand it too. We strolled around for a bit and went back to see how the line went. Kumonti na lang yung tao, because this certain police officer said there weren't any more forms, naubos na raw. So ayun konti na lang, but I remembered what had happened the day before, yun lagi nila sinasabi just so they can get rid of the other people. How rude! So ayun, nakipila na kami, kapalan na ng mukha, although di pa rin ako nakipagsiksikan ever, I don't want any foul stench sticking on my shirt noh, as well as greasy arms. Eww. We got the forms, filled it up and passed it.
What a journey it has been talaga. After that, I got my hair cut. Went to Church for Sunday mass. Went home. Slept for 30 minutes and went to church again, this time with the family for the New Year mass. Got home, ate and slept a bit. What a way to celebrate the last day of 2006 and to start of with 2007.

January 01, 2007. Went to our cousin's house and nakikain. I ate everything I could put in my stomach. Everything looked so yummy. Fortunately, di pa naman ako tumataba. Hehe. The offered me some wine too, to which I hesitantly accepted. Nung Christmas pa kasi nila ako pinapainom nun. Masarap. I didn't get the name of the wine though. :P

January 03, 2007. Went back to Magsaysay to have my picture taken para sa voter's id thing. And luckily, konti lang talaga ang tao, as in mabibilang mo lang. I worried before that the place would be swarmed by the same smelly folks and my preppy look would be ruined, pero hindi. Wahahaha. Everything went smoothly, I still had to make Tina come with me, kasi wala lang, para may kasama ako. Hehe. An optimist and a pessimist. After everything we've been through, I've realized that it wasn't the Comelec's system that was the only one at fault, but of the people there as well, shoving, yelling and acting like monkeys. Truly we are Pinoy. We went to school afterwards, chatting with the teachers. Talking about the OJT(On the Job Training). I had them make me a form for applying as an OJT at link2support. hehe.

Indeed, it has been a remarkable day. I feel so blessed and lucky. It is the year of the pig, but I don't care about that. All I care about is the fact that it's the year 2007. 7.. siyete.. pito.. Seven. My favorite number. A starting point of my career, spiritual and psychological growth. Be a better me.


:: Freakin Internet Connection ::

This earthquake that happened in Taiwan had disrupted all possible internet connection here in the Philippines. How unfortunate for us bloggers to not use Blogger services due to this natural cause. Reports said that several Undersea Cables were cut. The earthquake struck Taiwan at 10:26pm on Tuesday - exactly the second anniversary of the deadly Asian tsunami, there were even warnings by seismologists that giant waves will hit the . This fortunately didn’t happen.

So basically, I had come to a decision that I'll be blogging here in Friendster for a while until all connections are well and restored. Sheesh. Friendster's like so fast in loading, it really amazed me. Huwwaaattt!!!

Anyway, what a way to start a brand new year! I've noticed that almost everyone at home had the flu. (Unfortunately, I caught it too) Hey! It rhymes. Hehe.

Last year, I was checking on my friend's phone, and I wondered why there weren't any messages in her inbox. To which she said that it was to sort of a way para salubungin ang bagong taon. So, away with the old messages and in with the new. Starting January 2007. I've also deleted every message left in my inbox. And as this new year had begun, a lot of thank you and sorry messages had been passed to everyone. It really is funny how we only realize to start thanking and apologizing to everyone just as the year ends.
But there was this message that struck me the most, amidst all the messages I've received this year. I'd keep it. It was from Beiah, a dear friend of mine. ^_^ Biyah!! Hehe.
Her messages goes:

Darl, magdrama lang ko kadali ha (Darl, magdrama muna ako ha) :)

I want you to know that I'm very thankful having you around. You always help me, rescue me and inspire me in times when I badly need someone to mend my aching heart. There were times that I disappointed you and I'm sorry for that. I hope what we had in the past year will grow lovelier not only this year but forever. I VALUE YOU a lot and I just don't wanna lose one true friend like you. :)

Happy Boinky year. :) _beiah_

Why post it? Because, I want myself to reflect on the things I've done the past year. I've gotten myself involved in a lot of things. Dragged by my friends here and there. Just so I can accompany them or help them in doing something. Though I sometimes complain on why they always ask me to do things, it's not because I'm the only one they can push around. It's a matter of thinking how they treasure you and regard you as someone who can be depended on. Someone responsible, though I've never been really that responsible. It's nice to know that someone thanks you for the things, even the smallest ones, that you've done or do for them.
This year, I have no other resolution but to be a better me. Since I don't want to be stuck on following a list of what nots and other stuff, I'd rather just keep in mind that I should do better, if not the best, make it be for what's better. Life is full of surprises, and as how I see it, I've grown (not physically) but spiritually and mentally throughout the past years. This year will be a bit more fruitful. The mind is a very powerful thing, and so I'm setting it to a more positive outlook and strong grasp in everything that'll come my way.

Life is what you make it.
