POSSIBLE CAREER PATHS

1. FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY


Since I never wanted to be a lawyer but is very fascinated about the criminal justice system
and how criminals in general think, what their frame of mind and psychological state is,
I really am inclined to take this path. I regret that time where in they offered this class
as an elective during college and since I'm bound to take biological sciences classes,
I wasn't able to partake in it (and mind you our professor and head of the psych department
in MC is the president of the Psychological Association of the Philippines).
I should've taken  that class cause no one offers such classes
(not that i know of) here in manila. Drad.


I was discussing this with my mom and of course,
she supports me all the way.
I even told her that if circumstances are different,
I might consider being a cop or something.


But yeah, not really.


Addiction to crime and investigation channel really instigated this
longing desire that I have to do something and know more about
how to do criminal profile and analysis.
Growing up, I always wanted to be an FBI or something.
Plus I did really well in our Abnormal Psychology class
so figures. (CHOS! haha)


2. INTERIOR DESIGN


Growing up with engineers and architects seemed to be normal for me since my dad,
brother, and uncles were in this profession. I even entertained the idea of pursuing this
field but after all my poor grades in math, nah, i threw that thought away.


The thing in interior design is that your perception and creative concept will be put to life
around someones home maybe for a lifetime. I do enjoy the process of starting something
from a bare wall to a fabulous spot where a person or a family can enjoy their time.


I'm considering checking out SoFA maybe next year.

3. CELEBRITY STYLIST

A few days ago, I had this dream about this host/actress/singer's style
(in this scene she was wearing a purple dress with matching purple belt & shoes). 
Since i couldn't take that she wore that purple nightmare,
I told her to HIRE ME AS HER STYLIST. 
The dream was sooo funny that
my poor memory suddenly remembered every detail.


So yeah, I really am into FASHION.
If I can draw or even doodle, im probably currently a fashion designer as of this moment.
But seriously, My hand-eye-art coordination is at par worse than a preschooler. 


And then came RACHEL ZOE fabulously dressing Nicole Richie circa 2006 
when i was barely out of high school and enrolling for college. 
I knew that since my drawing skills are non-existent,
I did not enroll in any fashion design stuff since
my hands will probably abrogate that.


And then I thought, 
I probably have a shot as a celebrity stylist.


I mean, I knew BALENCIAGA and CHANEL
before I knew the ALPHABET.



4. WRITER/NOVELIST


After reading Anne Frank's novel, I did have a diary when I was in grade 4
and stopped around high school. 
I started this BLOG around 2004 and decided that an
online journal seemed much perfect
(And obviously, it is). 
Back then, Im in my sophomore year in high school,
seriously effed up, emo-loving,
nobody-cares-about-me kind of kid
and of course, jologs as hell.


And i turned into writing poems and short stories, reading greek mythology,
Sidney Sheldon, RL Stine and some other weird phases
that seemed so far fetched now.


I even had a notebook then filled with poems and
short stories with the dates and time kept under my pillow.
Im obviously better in English than in Math or Science 
and published one haiku in high school and
kept everything else under wraps. 


Writing for me back then was like breathing.
I feel kinda sad now that I forgot what its
like to feel inspired and write my heart out.


In college, i wrote a little and had some published
but i cant remember why i threw it away.


Maybe my first heart break killed it,
maybe I was too into Psychology
and forgot all about it,
or maybe
I just wanted to explore things other than
a pen and paper. 


But now that I started again, 
I will never let it go.
I am lazy, I know. 
But as people always say, "If you love what you do,
you will never work a day in your life."


But its starting to feel that writing is like an old scar

that i forgot about but was always there.
A reminder of life as i knew it during my youth,
the faces of my choices and
a reflection of who I am now,
a glimpse of who i will be and
a memento of who i was. 




I HAVE A COUPLE OF MONTHS TO
FIGURE THINGS OUT. 
AND ONCE I CHOSE WHATEVER IT IS,
I WILL NEVER LET IT GO.

FAVE EASY A QUOTE


"Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80's movies?

I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window.
I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey.
I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me.
I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air
because he knows he got me. 
Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie,
preferably one with a really awesome
musical number for no apparent reason. "

-Easy A

MOVIE REVIEW: MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

"The artist's job is not to succumb to despair 
but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence."



Did you ever feel that you belong in a different era? 
Or have you ever wondered what its like to interact 
with the greatest personas of the 20th century?
Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald,
Gertrude Stein,  Salvador Dali and the works?
Have you ever had that dream of interacting
with your idols who died almost a century ago?
What if you can be included in the inner circle of
these exceptional minds?

Midnight in Paris is the first Woody Allen film I saw and i now understand why his works were highly acclaimed and award winning. 
 
This film examines a disastrous relationship realized 
in the beautiful city of Paris between
Gil (Owen Wilson) and Inez (Rachel McAdams)
with the allusion of juxtaposing reality and magic.

It makes the audience assess one's struggle to 
make a mark in this world and explores the surreal imposition of one's need to live a different life in an era where
people whom you knew only through their oeuvre, novels, and artworks acknowledge your existence.  

It may not be a tear-jerking movie about a romance filled with passion but it serenely enables the audience to enjoy the remarkable splendor of Paris, the rich culture and the people who are once the life of the city entwined with realism of how life is today. 

I for one am not really knowledgeable with regards to the "Golden Era" of Picasso or Hemingway but this movie flared that interest in me to know more about this great mortals and their works.

A witty movie about choosing between living one's life in the past or present,
Midnight in Paris ensures the audience a 
sumptuous feast of awe-inspiring simplicity of lines &
opulence of the scenes meshed with the beauty of life, love
and of course,
PARIS.
