The sun arose and once again welcomed a new day on June 10, 1989 when a little baby girl was born. This black-haired, rosy-cheeked infant was named Jennifer Agustin - after the soothing sound of a wave's crest splashing calmly as it approaches the shore. She was blessed with a wonderful family and was brought up knowing she was loved.
She grew up to be a small, simple, four-eyed girl. She'd gotten hold of almost everything she had ever dreamed of. Both academically and sports inclined: receiving medals and other awards in both her studies and Taekwondo. A baker including a touch of magic in each treat she makes. A pianist who lets her notes play her song. A little diva honing her skills in singing, dancing, and acting in hope of a day when she finally breaks free and gets the spot light. A lawyer & business woman in the making - following in the footsteps of her grandfather, and still embracing her dreams of having a business someday. She'd always peek out her window to get a glimpse of the sunset and at the end of the day, thank the Lord for another day done. Yes, an achiever with an all-around character is indeed what this little lady has become.
With all these put aside, she still is a child at heart easily pleased with simple things. A typical teen enjoying every bit that's tagged along with the word teen - dealing with everyday pressures, surpassing each dilemma with a smile. A person loving life and living it to it's fullest. A young woman standing for truth and righteousness - living in the world, but not of the world. A loving daughter and sister, and a friend always there to listen. One who carries a pinch of optimism, a tinkling of charm, and loads of laughs. A dreamer, both day and night, still on the journey to happily ever after. A little lady with big dreams - a girl turning those dreams into a reality.
Hardly ever noticed in a crowd, almost invisible to passer-bys. But one glance at her and you'll see she's one with style, confidence, and a killer smile.
*ehem!* haha... :D
That's what I have to say about myself! Sorry if it's madrama. ;D

It's been great blogging here for the past 2 years, but now I've decided to leave the memories behind and start over from scratch. I'm moving to another blog, and this time, I'm sure it's fof good. I'm still going to visit this blog a lot though, so just go on ang leave messages if you want. Here's my new blog:
Please visit it when you have the time.

Finally, I'm 18. I don't feel like it though. Legal? Not quite. Grown-up? Oh please. haha...
Morning pa lang ng debut ko namomroblema na ako. I was really stressed when many of my friends started backing-out. I made the final adjustments in the seating arrangement and invited anyone I could think of. Alliv helped me with that, thank you dear. Nakabuo naman ako ng 90+, pero di rin lahat dumating eh. Ok pa ako nun eh, pero umiiyak na ako sa parlor. Para akong sira. haha...
In whole, the party was super fun. I enjoyed every single moment, especially the dancing! Sa mga youth and leaders, 1 hour?! Sa mga blockmates ko and Sir Oyong, happy reunion! Sa family ko, thank you so much. I'll post the pictures when I get them. There's 300+ of them for each camera I think. 600 pictures, thousands of smiles.
I'm still frustrated over the cheesecake and the meringue I wasn't able to eat because I had to go in front already... Grrr...
It's hard to put in words what that night really felt like. It was the
best night ever. All the planning did pay off - I got better than what
Thank you so much to everyone who remembered my
special day. I know you all could have gone some place else, but you
went to my party instead. You don't know how grateful I am that I have
family and friends like you. Thanks for all the greetings, gifts, and
hugs. But most of all, thank you for making me feel special. I hope you
enjoyed the party. I love you guys! *hugs*

I'm so frikin' dead if I don't find that paper bag! O it kwento...
I started giving out my invitations for my debut this morning. It was actually fun handing them out. PERSEF2 was a free cut, so me, Alliv, Jek, and Arski went to La Casita to have lunch. After class, I went to class in Miguel (my college's building) and handed out more invitations. I hurried to the library after class to have something photocopied.
Okay... As of now, the paper bag of all my invitations for my debut is missing somewhere in La Salle. I didn't notice that I wasn't carrying it until I got my bag from our library's deposit station. I asked the man if there was a paper bag with my bag, and he said "wala"
. I asked him to check, wala talaga
out the library - everyone's eyes on me as I passed because I was the only one running in the corridors. I went to the lost and found department to see if anyone turned in a paper bag. No paper bag. I retraced my steps and checked the ladies room where I was before I went to the library. No paper bag. I even went in twice. Again, pinagtinginan nanaman ako. I was going back and forth the corridors of our building, natataranta pa rin. I thought of checking the last classroom I was in. Again, I ran. I looked throught the window of my last classroom twice, still, everyone looking at me. I saw a paper bag that was like the one I had, and it was near my seat. Hopefully, it was mine.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, hopefully, it's mine. I'll go back to the classroom later to check... If it isn't... I don't know what I'll do...
Now, my heart's pounding really fast... What would my mom say when I go home without the spare invitations? What would I had out to the others who are invited to my party?

Ei! I'm back (sort of)! There's only one very, very vivid memory of my summer in my head right now - the Regional Youth Conference. It was fun! I can still recall every detail so clearly.May 3-5Boso Boso, AntipoloQC stake, QC South stake, and Novaliches StakeDay 1
Cubao ward, Quirino 1st ward, Quirino 2nd ward, and QC 2nd ward assembled at 6:30 AM in our chapel. I was so excited to go, and I could tell nobody was as excited as me (I packed 7 days before the camp). haha... I saw all my friends and we got our IDs a little later and saw that all the straps were red, unlike last year's youth con, the straps were color coordinated according to age. I didn't see Manman
, so I was kinda
bummed... When it was time to get on the bus, Kuya Jay started taking pictures of us. As usual, we'd crowd the aisle of the bus and won't sit down until someone gave the opening prayer. In a few minutes, we were off to Boso Boso!KARMA: wala si Manman
The bus ride didn't take too long, I think we were the closest ward to our destination. Oh yeah, we used the buddy system. My buddy was Hazel. I thought "oh no". You see, when Hazel and I are together, there is MAJOR hypractivity. We can't stop laughing! haha! And that's exactly what happened - we couldn't sleep on the way there, we led the asaran
i the bus, and we were the noisiest people there!
We weren't told to keep quiet, do I guess it was okay. haha...
Finally we got to Boso Boso. It was really hot there. I still think Raven Resort (last year's venue) was better, but Boso Boso was okay. Only a few people have arrived when we reached the basketball court. I think they were from QC stake. We waited quite a while before everyone else atrted coming in. I jumped when I saw my friends from last year's youth conference. I was so happy! Hazel and I went over to Elysse and Jeneen to catch up with them. I also saw, Iani, Gerts, Princess, and Paolo. Too bad Inno wasn't there...KARMA: wala si Inno
They gave us a briefing on the house rules and blah blah blah when the youth of all three stakes were complete. Oh and Kuya Jay gave us stickers to identify our age group. We went to our rooms a little later to have lunch. I was glad to know that we would be staying in rooms by ward. That meant our own bathroom, no old
leaders telling us to keep quiet, windows, airconditioning, and camwhoring! Yesss! After lunch, we headed back to the basketball court.
We had games after. We were asked to form according to age group and then divided into two again. I saw a really cute guy from QC stake. haha... Let's call him Market
. I wanted to be in the same group as him, but it didn't happen. I envy my brother for being in the same group as him and even more for talking to him! haha... The games were not as fun as last year's though... We played this game where you toss one of your shoes in the center of the cirle then someone gets one shoes and find the owner and introduces himself/herself. My friends and I wanted to get each other's shoes. They got away with it, but I didn't.
One of the team leaders got the shoe I was holding and switched it with a slipper which seemed like... Err... No comment. Noooooooooo! It wasn't so bad, I thought... But Kuya Jay went to me ang laughed at the slipper. Nagwala na ako totally
. haha! The next game was charades, we were assigned to be a radio. Nothing special, except that Jay-R was donned Cinderella, Loveker - Roberto, Hazel - Eduardo, and me - Emilio. Loko-loko talaga yun
. The next game was like text twist. Our group won! Yay! The last was kite-making. Some kites weren't able to fly. Thank goodness our kite was albe to. There one one that caught my attention - the one that looked like a jellyfish. But that kite hit me on the face, and left a wound. Grr... And to think there were a lot of people who saw what happened. Kakahiya.
I just kept laughing though. haha... Back to quarters after so we could prepare for the dance social. KARMA: yung tsinelas, yung saranggolang mukahang jellyfish
Dance social... At first I was really, really hesitant to dance, but I ended up dancing until my feet got sore! haha... My primary objective was to get Kat to dance with Nephi, and guess what? It happened! haha! They looked so cute together, and Neph looked charming when he reached out his hand and smiled towards Katrina as he asked her to dance. My young women friends and I started shouting when we saw them! Hazel even left the guy she was dancing with just to go to them! haha... ANDDD... Manman came! He was seated next to me for a time and I was even able to talk to him, bwahaha... My dance buddies that night were Hazel and Jay-R. Our young women also taught the young men how to ballroom dance because according to their leaders, they have two left feet. Ballroom pa naman yung theme ng dance social.
haha... It was fun anyway. I was surprised when the music shifted to slow, sweet music because our leaders discouraged dancing to such music. I didn't enjoy dances like those either, but that night was different. I always thought that music like that was reserved for lovers alone and that there would always be akward silences between you and your partner, but my friends proved me wrong. Sometimes Troy was my partner, sometimes Jay-R, and even Hazel beacame my partner - meaning Troy and Jay-R were paired. Nah, just kidding. haha! Anyway, we were dancing at our own pace
- A fast beat! We even ended up banging each other with a tango-ish step. It was super fun, and it removed my ilang
feeling towards dances like these.
I wasn't able to dance with Manman or Market, but I loooved the dance social. It was one night to remember.

I'm on vaction right now AT LAST! I finished everything already, yes including ENGLSTRESS. haha... Today is supposed to be our course card distribution, but I didn't go because it's too hot to go out. I just hope I didn't fail any subject... Patay ako pag enrollment kung may bagsak ako...
Well my dad's finally at home. He's even taking gym classes in the hospital and walks around the neighborhood everyday. He's not going to work for another week, I think. He is going to Church already on Sunday though. I bet that many would storm him with questions. haha... The menu at home has changed, too. We all started eating low-salt, low/non-fat, vegetable diets; fruits; and no carbonated drinks since my dad's hospitalization. It's not new for me because that's my regualr diet, but it is for everyone else at home, especially my dad!
Oh yeah. I won't be updating as much as I used to now that it's vacation. On top of the reason that we have very slow internet connection here at home (I have broadband in my dorm), I was given the chance to join the dance for the Regional Youth Conference in May, so I'll be busy practicing for that. Also, the Sims2 will keep me preoccupied. haha... I need to buy the next expansion! Plus my debut plans and such demands my time. Hmm... Come to think of it, maybe I'm not on vacation after all. What do you think? haha...
I'M SUPER EXCITED FOR THE RYC!
