I finally found my new favorite song

"5:23PM" says my clock. It's been almost a week since my last post.

In the past few days, I really want to blog but the problem is, I don't know what to blog about. Until last night at around 11PM, I finally found something to blog about.

Last night, I checked the profile of rosepetalsalad (<http://community.livejournal.com/rosepetalsalad/>it's a nice community.. check it out!), a community I joined here in LJ to check what the current theme is and it was something like black and white photography and movies/videos. I didn't have anything like that so I checked out other posts instead. I was in the tenth post when I saw this video.

"Your Eyes"

After I listened to this song, I immediately went to Youtube to comment on the video. I really think that the music and the lyrics is good and the guy singing it really has talent. And I also think that he's like American Idol's David Archuleta (not kidding). While I was listening to the song for the second time, I read the information on the video and found out that that song is the first song that he ever wrote and actually finished . Man, I wish that I could write that good. Well, I could write lyrics but my problem is music. I can't come up with a good melody and I'm not really that good yet with the guitar :p

After playing this video for about six times, it suddenly became my new favorite song. (My last favorite song was When you look me in the eyes by The Jonas Brothers).

Here's the lyrics. It's really sweet.

Your Eyes ©2008

Words don't come easy
I can not speak
each moment that passes
my heart skips a beat

I look in your eyes and I see
A vision of you and me

*Come take my hand and together we'll fall
in love forever and we'll have it all
it's love at first dance and they're playing our song
nothing can stop us tonight
cause I've already seen it when I looked into
your eyes*

People around us are starting to stare
They all can see that there's love in the air

If they looked in your eyes they would see
a girl who's the star of my dreams


Take my advice
You don't have to think twice
cause we've got the rest of our lives
and the future looks bright
in your eyes

Come take my hand
It's love at first dance
We're in love forever...

I even converted the video to audio so that I can upload and listen it in my iPod!...

Let me end by saying this : Subscribe to paint1487's videos.... you won't be disappointed! listen to his other songs too!. I also find his other song... "Above the clouds" very inspirational.

Women in flying missions

Another one of my articles!. For this article, the requirement was to interview the person who is in the field of profession that you want to be someday. I emailed the site, gURL.com  and asked for information about Ms. Jennifer Wolf, a pilot in the US Air Force for the interview and the site instructed me to send them my questions and they will be forwarding them to Ms. Wolf but they can't promise that she will respond. I waited for almost a month and I recieved nothing. Ten days before my deadline, I still have not recieved the answers so  I decided to deal with what I got. I gathered all the information I could get and made a personality profile out of it. I quite had a hard time doing it. I had writer's block when I started writing it. What I did was I kept on writing and rewriting. Everything I come up with was really.. (hmm.. let me look up a term for it..)..... not-so good?.. trashy? I guess. I finished writing it two hours before the day of the deadline (that was 10 pm or April 23 and the deadling was April 24.)  and I'm so happy that my mom was there to correct my grammatical errors. In the end, I was happy that despite of my writer's block, I still finished this article of mine. I'm not completely satisfied though.

This is the first draft of my opinion article. This is one of the summer works given to us during the Sparks  workshop. I really had fun making this article!

A teenager’s opinion to the so called”Philippine brain drain”.
Summertime is finally here again. A time for fun and relaxing activities like visiting cold places like the Baguio and Tagaytay, swimming in beaches, lakes, or pools, or simply staying at home sharing quality time with your family and friends. But summer isn’t just a time for all of these. It is also a time where professionals (and aspiring professionals) are expected to grow in number since College graduation just took place all over the country.
I researched the internet for the total number of college students who graduated this year. After three days of clicking, typing, and browsing web pages, my research resulted to nothing. Instead, I stumbled into a phrase which is quite unfamiliar to me: brain drain.

Earth is my element

Your Element Is Earth

You excel at planning and strategizing.

You could be a champ at chess or Survivor.

Well grounded, you are able to be realistic and rationalize.

On the inside, you have a hard core. It's tough to phase you.

You are super productive, and you are able to think anything through.

Focused and super charged, your instincts are a good guide for your next step.

I just took this quiz. It's quite true, I do like trusting my instincts.

But I'm not really into chess... I don't even know how to play the game!

A week late Earth Day entry

Last Sunday, I watched Al Gore's documentary, and I'm so happy that my dad was there with me to watch it :-) (Now my dad teases by calling me "environmentalist")

It's not my first time to hear about Global Warming. I was in fourth grade, and about nine or ten years old when I first heard it. I didn't really care about it and it's effects that time. Until it was given emphasis during the previous freshman year in our Environmental Science class. 

Global Warming (or greenhouse effect), when summarized into a sentence is the accumulation of heat in the earth's atmosphere causing the rise of global temperature. It's effects? aside from having more typhoons and the change of temperature and weather's pattern, global warming causes ice glaciers to melt. And if it melts, low coast lying areas will be submerged and we lose our main source of freshwater.

Global Warming isn't just an ordinary issue that we face today. We have to unite and do something about it. The earth is our home. Our only home. And we should take care of it so that the following generations can still appreciate the beauty of our home.

We should save water. Use pail and dipper instead of using the shower and use glass when you are brushing your teeth.

We should save electricity. Do you know that solar energy is as cheap as the daily newspaper? (source: Discovery Channel) So why go on with the traditional electricity when there is a cheaper alternative?...

There are lots of other ways to save our planet... and if we do our best in saving our home, I'm pretty sure that in time, the world will be a better place to live in.


David Archuleta!

I love David Archuleta and I think that he should win this year's American Idol!. I love his performance during the top 6 week. He surprised Andrew Lloyd Webber when he decided to sing The Phantom of the Opera's Think of Me. I was also surprised when I watched his performance online because Think of Me was written for a girl and it has really high notes and yet, David A impressed the judges by converting the song's genre to rock-ballad! He really does have a nice voice..

David Archuleta


Writer's Block: Almost Famous

What do you want to be famous for?
I want to be famous for being a singer-songwriter environmentalist pilot.

Singer- Songwriter

If I ever became a singer- songwriter, my genre would most likely be pop or anything (exept country!) like what Vanessa Hudgens did on her album, V. According to her, V doesn't only stand for Vanessa but it also stands for variety, which is most likely true because the songs on her album comes in different genres .. from pop.. to rock... even rap!. I also would like to become like Hannah Montana: half superstar, half girl next door . Her songs totally rock!


Global warming... acid rains... ozone depletion.. plants and animals! I love dealing with stuff like that especially in our Environmental Science class. Speaking of environmental science class, I will surely miss it especially our teacher, Mr. Donato Soberano.. aka Sir Donz. He's a really cool teacher.  He does not have a really bad temper when it comes to discipline but he can manage the class well. He likes giving pluses in quizzes and stuff so you better be prepared whenever he calls you for recitation. Anyways, going back to being an environmentalist, I think that famous celebrities should be the ones to promote being eco friendly or "pro environment" because they have the ability to influence hundreds of people. I read this article in CodeRed mag by actress Miriam Quiambao and she said that during the past years, many celebrities (including her) became environmentalist. In the end, a lot of people followed their steps. And that's the reason why I would like to be an environmentalist after being a singer-songwriter.


Being an aviator is one of my greatest dreams. I love action and adventure and I think that being a pilot is the key for them. I want people to know me like this : that singer?.. I heard she campaigns for Greenpeace and she's a pilot too.. no way! that's so cool!...  (^.^)

Kinda crazy eh?


I'm a strawberry ice cream!

You Are Strawberry Ice Cream

A bit shy and sensitive, you are sweet to the core.

You often find yourself on the outside looking in.

Insightful and pensive, you really understand how the world works.

You are most compatible with chocolate chip ice cream.



You Should Play the Guitar

You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.

You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.

You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.

It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.

Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.

You could emerge as a sensitive songwriter... or a manic rock star.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being rebellious

Your secondary personality characteristic: tenacity


I'm an ice cream cake!

I took a quiz in blog things.. and I turned out to be an ice cream cake!...

You Are an Ice Cream Cake

Surprising, unique, and high maintenance.

You're one of a kind, and you don't want anyone to forget it.

You're fun in small doses, but it's easy for people to overdose on you!

I'm gonna start writing my final article later..!! I'm just looking out for inspiration...
