Why independence, if the slaves of today will be the tyrants of tomorrow…– Jose Rizal I wonder if he really believed that the Philippines ought to be independent by that time.
You can’t just sit or lie around, feeling sad.– What are you, a vegetable?
“When used as a method, ethnography typically refers to fieldwork (alternatively, participant-observation) conducted by a single investigator who ‘lives with and lives like’ those who are studied, usually for a year or more.” —John Van Maanen, 1996. “Ethnography literally means ‘a portrait of a people.’ An ethnography is a written description of a...
To burn always with this hard, gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is...– - Walter Pater, The Renaissance (via la-chair-chaude-des-mots) What I was thinking this morning. I must be more passionate.
I feel retarded. -.-
You have to be stronger than this, Nina.
You’re not a child anymore.
Animals as Subjects of Artwork →
I have a better hand in creating artwork with animals as subjects compared to those of human beings and their portraiture for example. I agree with Charlotte Dumas of the difficulty in capturing an animal’s story compared to those of humans. But to me, once you do see emotion within a picture, I usually find such an emotion more raw and vulnerably shown in the picture of certain animals...
EXOTIC PETS: Why do Americans keep dangerous... →
For anthropology class today, we were required to submit an ethnography of primates within a zoo. Our discussion then encompassed our experiences, and our opinions of whether it would be a good thing to do. Is it fair for the animals to be placed behind bars? Are they not mistreated? What of their natural instincts to survive? As an equestrian and animal-lover (minus the birds and the fish), I...

Just in time, the Piano Guys’s Beethoven’s 5 Secrets - OneRepublic (Cello/Orchestral cover) was playing… Then I found myself in this page: http://www.facebook.com/upasc Then… I started crying. :’) (THIS NEVER HAPPENS OKAY) And I told myself that there is no need to worry. ‘Tis in good hands. Time to say goodbye. I am very blessed to have been given the...
Did crunches to the beat of the entire song of Britney’s Gimme More. This is getting ridiculous. I guess that’s more than the 295++ last tuesday. As Suyin says, For More Beach Body! Nat, until I take out sweets! The weekend’s the cheatmeal time. What I like the most about this is the stretching. I wonder if I can get myself to start splitting again by the end of summer. ...
The thing about performing...
Is that your entirety in projecting a certain character becomes deeper when you carry all that you are - frailties and victories. It becomes an output for the emotion felt even how many years before. It is perhaps an act of self-discovery and realizing how it is best to express onself that a connection with the audience is ignited. That they too, may perhaps realize what the character means,...
I feel like so many things still need to be nurtured. And everything that we do and present, just needs pure conviction - as all should be done in the best way we know how to do so. In the most fun way we know how to do so. In the way we can benefit the most.
It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch...
… if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell...– Marilyn Monroe
Would you rather take a picture or have your...
Ooops. I like doing both. How about I get to direct the photographer on the composition, and how much light enters the photograph… But I’m the model? I’m not one to be for vanity or whatever but I think there’s more to modeling than looking pretty. Hit me with your best shot !
What's your dream date? Who would it be with and...
I don’t really have a “dream date” per say. I think what’s great is if you guys are ANYWHERE, even if it doesn’t look like a date-place to go or whatever, AND you still have the BEST TIME ever. :) That way, you surely know that whoever you’re seeing’s really good company. Minus all the pretty clothes, the luxury of a car, good ambience and everything...
Do you think the glass is always half full or...
I am absolutely an optimist <3 Hit me with your best shot !
When I counted down my demons
Saw there was one for everyday. With the good ones on my shoulder, I drove the other ones away.
I don’t know about this. But I do not want to doubt.
This has been fucking STRESSING ME out. Fuck.
You shouldn't have to leave for someone to realize...
Dorling Kindersley Pockets
Their project team must’ve been amazing! I can’t believe we bypassed their publishing office in Covent Garden. How can I have not noticed this detail?? This. Is the way a program ought to be presented. Or perhaps even, all ideas possible.
No Way Jose
Spring cleaning sorting phase, ok! Next stop’s… I’ve still got so many stops! Besides just cleaning. Am I being too slow??? I cannot! Must quicken pace :)) but I am getting sick again. When is this illness going to leave me be :(
Gold of Our Ancestors
Exhibit at Ayala Museum Absolutely captivating! Especially this documentary on gold and its history in the world. References point to: World of Gold, History of Gold Touches base with very tender topics I’ve felt were special to me since I was eight. Other things to look up: Fernando Zobel, 1950’s, stratigraphy, pen and ink, abstracticism, aquatint, serigraphy, engraving
