Anyone going to Komikon at UP tomorrow, May 16? Some of my friends will be selling comics and you should check them out!

I'll post title/s and teaser/s if I can. :D See you there!

I know I said I'd update a lot but, unexpectedly, I ended up with more work than I initially thought I'd have this summer. ...Yay? Hahaha.

First of all, I'm actually interning (and updating this journal at work, hee). Yes that's right, I volunteered to be a slave even if Ateneo doesn't require it. Having already advanced a few of my classes last summer, I didn't need to do it this summer. I felt like it'd be such a waste if I spent it languishing at home reading pirated comics. :P

I'm not sure why the agency I'm interning at, Dual Action Blender has the same logo and font as Euro RSCG but from what I gather they're sister companies of some sort? Or we're under a branch of Euro RSCG? I dunno actually. :D



Here's me at the office with 3D glasses I found on the desk I work in. I'm only pretending to be thinking hard, because at the time I had finished workkk and submitted it to Mr. Boss Man, which is why I was updating this journal since I was pretty much free.

But then I got assigned more "homework" which is due tomorrow. :| Oh nooOoOoooo! But I'm learning so I guess it's all good. Also getting faster with Photoshop, which I haven't used heavily in a while, and getting faster at laying out my storyboards into grids on InDesign, haha.

Aside from that, I recently magically got the position of Design Ed. for Heights, our school's literary publication. Right now since school's out it's a lot of meetings meetings meetings as we lay out our plans for the year. It looks like it'll be a fun one, if anyone's reading this that's studying in Ateneo, join Heights even if not Design Staff! :D

Oh and I got around to moving stuff on my front page thing, and now the Shoutbox is in my profile where I can actually see it when I check DevArt. Hahaha!

  • Mood: Peaceful
  • Listening to: other people typing
  • Reading: the account brief T__T
  • Eating: soon! they take lunch here lateeee

And lo, there is an update!

HELLO! Yes, a journal entry after forever!

After turning in stuff for our Sir Ali class today, it's like I'm exhaling or something. Phewwww. What a hectic month. Since second semester is shorter than first semester, teachers seem to end up shoving all the work into late February and March, before finals week.

Still, Sir Ali's project was last, so I've had a bit of time to rest my brain in the past week or two. I spent it...reading shoujo manga. XD

I admit I expected it to be like those romance novels some of my classmates always read during class in high school, hahaha! I'm not a big manga reader but all the TV shows I was watching are between seasons, so I decided to give it a shot.



:iconchanbarariot: recommended Skip Beat and I really like it! I had to get used to the art, but soon I was totally sucked in. But it's still not complete nooo :( 130+ chapters out and she hasn't even confirmed that she likes him yet?? Same thing with Ouran HS Host Club (also really good), they're sure taking their time to confess to mutual like-ing.

Right now (like in another tab, haha) I'm reading Basara, so I shall get back to that now. I'll probably update with stuff I've done for school, and try to update way more often while I still have a subscription!

For now, since I should post photos while I can, here's a hot picture of Megan Fox.

last entry of 2008!

First of all, belated Merry Christmas and Advanced Happy New Year! :) DevArt still acts up on me, so I'm not sure I'll be able to post tomorrow, hahaha.

Christmas break has been nice so far, I really like sleeping in. I don't want to go back to school and to schoolwork! :(

Hope everyone got presents they liked and wanted--I haven't even finished opening my presents yet because we went to our place in Laguna for a short while after Christmas. So a lot of our presents are still under the tree. How sad. :|

Also, this isn't related to anything above, but sorry to anyone who might be reading this that I haven't added on Facebook, I only add people I know personally on that account. :)

Well this was a short entry. I'll just end it with a picture of the cute reindeer hat c/o :icontinik:. Happy Holidays!



  • Mood: Hungry
  • Listening to: the electric fan :P
  • Watching: oh! my girl, episode 3
  • Eating: dinner--in a few minutes

devart again at last!

Okay, while this is still working, quick update! I haven't been able to access DevArt for a week or two now, no idea why. :|

Although, I managed to sneak in the ICR logos but when I went to update my journal it didn't work again! Not that anything's happening really, just a lot of making blue eagle logos/mascots for homework. Boo :(

This is a boring entry, hahaha, sorry, I live a fairly boring life anyway :P

THIS WEEK THEN NEXT WEEK THEN IT'S CHRISTMAS BREAK :x

  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: whatever my sister is playing on the PC
  • Eating: just about to eat dinner!

Homework dump ahoy!

Went through stuff from this sem, dumping (some of) them here at last. Been too lazy to do it so this is long overdue, but now I'm taking a break from all the work and it seems a good time. :P

  • Mood: Lazy
I almost never update this journal, so to make this space is good for something, might as well post this:


------> NO!SPEC <------


I heartily recommend going through the whole site. Some people might have you believe that as a budding designer or artist you should be a work slut and doing work for free for anyone, anywhere, at any time.

It's nice to do favors for friends once in a while or work for orgs you support, but do you really think your time and effort is worth that little? And that just the "chance for your work to be seen" or the "chance for your work to be chosen" is worth that much?

Choice cut: Sir Ali, last year (or was it last last) linked to this essay and if you didn't read it then or have never read it, read it.
  • Mood: Optimism
Strangely, although I know we'll be busy little beavers this sem, I think I'll be uploading more. Aside from caving into peer pressure, and the strong sense of an imagined community (learned that in my class today! :D) I got a DevArt to keep track of what I've done so I can quickly look at it later.

Sooooo, yeah, if you get submissions one after another, they're probably because of that. :P
Interview with the maker of Comic Sans, Vincent Connare: www.manic.com.sg/blog/archives…

He sounds kind of bitter. Hahaha.
Today I went to my first con ever, Hero con. (Thanks to Edjie and co. for inviting me along! XD) It was fun, everyone was really nice! :) I felt a bit under-dressed and under-made-up when I got there but I'll keep that in mind for next time, hahaha.

Fee better post that picture of us with Hard Gay! <3 HOOOOOOO
