DC Rocks!

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Ay naku, dapat tulog na ako or at least nagpapack for our SME Outing tomorrow, but here I am stilla wake. Nawala ang antok ko. The suspense almost killed me pos alam mo yung pakiramdam na sudden rush tapos biglang subside? Hahaha! That's how I feel right now. ANd it's all your fault, David Cook!

My Gah! I was afraid America will vote for the adorable one, but they got it right this time and voted DAVID ROLAND COOK as the New American Idol.

Ang tagal ng two hours, sobrang daming performances from comebacking artists and the Top 12, plus an annoying performance by the "We are Brothers forever" guy, complete with the marching bands.

I did like Jason Castro's Hallelujah and THe guy's performance with Bryan Adams, but the night belonged to David Cook.

Halfway through the show, I though they were pimping out an Archuleta win, because he got to sing Apologize with One Republic, while David Cook performed with oldie rockers, ZZ Top. Hello di ba?

David Cook not only won, he won BIG! 56 million votes and 12 million votes over Archuleta. Now that's what I call a WIN.

It was funny how the camera panned to Jeff Archuleta, David A's dad when Cook was announced the winner. Parang everybody was anticipating what his reaction would be. Gracious naman sha, in fairness.

Hay.. I need to sleep na. BUt first, I gotta download more DC songs. Hehehe!

Congratulations, DC! You truly deserve it. :D

PS: Feeling ko vindication to. Kasi tanga sila dati vinote out agad si Chris Daughtry chaka si Elliott Yamin at ang pinanalo si Taylor Hicks. Hehehe, conspiracy theory.



















Go David Cook!

David Cook for the mother-effin' win!!!

I don't care what the judges said, David Cook was brilliant.

I loved his song choices - songs from two of my favorite artists, U2 & Collective Soul. The 2nd song was okay, but it wasn't as cheesy as DA's song.

Simon said DC should have sung "Hello" or "Billie Jean" again, but I agree with David, why sing something you've already done?

Not to take anything away from David Archuleta, his rendition of Elton John's Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" was great. Overall though, I hink DC is the better singer/performer.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2:




I liked this performance better, because it showed David's emotional side. The World I Know - Collective Soul




















































C'mon America, choose the better singer, not the "adorable" one.

on coping

Monday, May 12, 2008

People have different coping mechanisms and it differs on the situation.

I, for example, either pig out on ice cream, blog, listen to very loud music or sleep. It can be done simultaneously, like i'd eat ice cream and listen to rock/metal/alternative music while blogging, or one after the other. Hehehe.

In light of the news I've received last week, I've had a hot fudge sundae for 3 consecutive days (baaad), and I've listened to all the loud music i have (good luck to my eardrums) and tuned out the sounds at the office. I've also blogged, though most of what I composed are just for a select few. And I slept.

When I got home last Saturday I was so depressed, I slept at 11am and I woke up at 7am Sunday morning. My gah. Tulog kung tulog. I guess it was my body saying its drained.

Friday morning was a bad morning, and last Saturday, my teammates and I were just like walking zombies. Just going through the motions.

We all felt the same way. We wanted to rant and rebel but we thought it best to be the better persons. We were just comforted by the fact that though this crisis (and yes we consider it a crisis), we stuck together and were able to be there for each other. It was nice having lunch with most of them and talking to one another on a different level.

Whatever happens within the next couple of weeks, I'm glad we became team mates and I'm glad I became part of the BEST team there is.

mom

Sunday, May 11, 2008

I composed this on my phone while dad and I were at Loyola Memorial Park this afternoon. We were there to visit mom's grave. This has been a typical Sunday for us for almost 3 years now and I still can't get used to mom not being here in every aspect of my life.

My friend Aimee is right, the pain doesn't go away, we just learn how to deal with it better. And I think we've done just that.

I still miss mom everyday and I miss her even more during special occassions and on days I need a shoulder to cry on. She was my bestest (yes, I know it's not a word) friend and I honestly felt that my world crumbled when she passed on. I'm still not the same Jennie I was when she was here, and I doubt I will ever be the same again. But during past couple of years my family and I learned how to cope and I think we're doing okay so far :)

Hay, I so miss my mom. If you still have your moms with you, don't let a day pass without telling them and showing them you love them.
