Unexpected Friendship / School Experiences

     Yesterday was a blast! First thing in the morning was a doze of coffee and a newspaper. I woke up around 5:45 a.m. with just 4 hours of sleep because I was busy writing the previous blog. Around 8:30 a.m. I was able to leave the house and then went to school. Upon arriving in our assigned classroom I sat on my chair, read the newspaper and minded my own business while waiting for our professor.
      In class we discussed so many things about the Rules of Readability in Broadcast Journalism. The subject was very interesting that it was one of the subjects I look forward to every week. I also knew why articles are written like those that I read. I didn't know that large numbers should be spelled-out. Acronyms that are used should be known by the majority. There were a lot of interesting things to be learned. I also enjoyed hearing the stories of my professor about his experiences in the media industry and how he was able to survive it all. My evaluation  about the subject is that it is very interesting and I want to learn more about it.

      My life in the classroom focuses only on my world since I had to friends yet. Well, I have some but we don't really talk that much. So during school days my route goes from house to school then back to our house. All I did in class was to listen to my professor.

      At the end of my day, my mom calls me and we discuss things like politics, current events and so many others. Recently, we were able to talk about me having friends. She told me that I should wait and not hurry looking for friends. I agreed and told her that I just need time. Maybe God is preparing something for me. I felt that. Yesterday, He did!

      While walking and heading for the gate of our school all I thought about was going home and getting some sleep. When I entered the jeep, I searched for my wallet to get some coins for payment not noticing the passengers who were with me. As I was searching  my bag, someone blurted out "Si Ate oh." Later on I realized that they were my classmates. They talked to me and I gladly answered their "getting to know" questions. Since it was lunch time and they were planning to eat in Cubao, they invited me. What amazed me was I did not feel any uncertainties and when we strolled the Araneta Center, we talked as if we were very close already. There were five of them but for me that was too large for me so I easily shy away.

      I was happy and thanked God for a wonderful day He gave me. He gave me something that was not in my plans. It was unexpected. Later on, I went home with a big smile on my face. Thank you Lord for new friends! :)

Okay. Let me start of with the big bad news that I have read this morning. This is for Hey!Say!JUMP fans only, we'll you can read it if you're that interested.

I was reading kamichan's blog about Ryutaro Morimoto of Hey! Say! JUMP being suspended because he was caught smoking at a very young age. I didn't like what happened though it was really his fault. Knowing that he is working in Jhonny's Entertainment, and he is a Japanese citizen, he must abide by the rules. I understand the decision of Mr. Jhonny Kitagawa, the owner of JE (Jhonny's Entertainment), about the suspension of Morimoto. He was not just caught with the eye but caught with a camera. I don't consider it as being caught because just looking at the picture I can say that he really did that on purpose. You can see the picture here. I could not understand the reason why he would do such thing that would ruin the image of JUMP and other groups. Another thing is that maybe he trusted the wrong person, the person who took the picture. Today will be the launching of their latest single OVER. Now, JUMP will launch their single with only 9 members. After reading the news, I got almost 50 SMS from my friends talking and crying over the issue. I understand that Hey! Say! JUMP is not Hey! Say! JUMP with only 9 members. But there's no reason to go crying and not eating because of that.

The Tokyo TV Station is now puzzled whether they would air Yanyan JUMP and HEY! HEY! HEY!, Morimoto is there and they have already taped the show 2 weeks ago and that will be aired today. They are also thinking about editing the singles and removing Morimoto there but I don't think they still can. There are already CDs that was shipped and sold out of Japan. Poor Morimoto have to be suspended in all appearances indefinitely. At first I would also like to give him a big slap on the face for doing such thing that now ruined the image of the group. Since he's a teenager, I'll refrain from doing that aside from the fact that I don't know him personally. When teenagers are curious, they always end up like that. As far as I'm concerned, Japanese people are very disciplined whether old or young. That is why I was very curious about the reason of Morimoto's early smoking exposure.

Talking about maturity, I was pissed reading some comments and texts about him. Those messages that doesn't really make sense. Why can't fangirls and fanboys just act maturely over this issue? Why do they have to cry so hard over this, why do they have to skip their meals because Morimoto is suspended? I know we fans have our own opinions about this issue. Can we just react about this in an objective and positive way? Isn't crying and skipping meals just because of that just makes a person immature? I know die-hard fans are really hurt about this issue but it's not a reason for them to make themselves suffer. They are just making their life more complicated.

Morimoto has his issues and JE has no clear statements of whether he will be forced to quit or not. In the latest news, it was said that he is indefinitely suspended. So it's indefinitely not permanently. There is still hope. The company is giving him a chance to change. From what a friend of mine said, in the history of JE, no one was suspended that was able to go back to his group. I know fans all over the world are still hoping for his comeback and I hope, I HOPE, that it will not completely ruin the image of the group.

I've been planning to write this the whole day yesterday but I was busy. So that's it. Prayers for Ryutaro Morimoto.

"Today I don't feel like doing anything..." I was singing that song from the time I woke up until I ended up in-front of my laptop. Then, I checked out SM Masinag's Official Page on Facebook. I don't actually do this regularly but this time I checked it out. It was 3pm. Only to find out that there will be a mall tour of the casts of Temptation Island at 5pm today. I wasn't surprised because I'm not a fan. What made me jump and shout was someone commented that PapaDan will be the emcee. Haha!.. Dream came true! I immediately ran to the bathroom, took a bath.. then at 4:30pm I decided to go there. SM Masinag is very close to our home. :D I brought my DSLR and then with so many people around I wasn't able to take pictures.

Ang gusto ko lang naman kunan yung EMCEE eh! Pwede kahit emcee lang pagbigyan nyo ako. :D haha! I told my companion, "Hindi na nga ako kukuha ng picture baka masira pa to. Masulyapan ko lang si PapaDan, solb na ako!" Then luckily before we left, I saw him. :D

Just as I entered our house, I immediately tweeted it. After a few hours he RT my tweet!. woohh! haha!!

I'm so happy!!.. :D
Haha! Finished the day with PGT and Gandang Gabi Vice.

Day complete!. :)

Missed Blogger

I missed blogging. Let's see.

My mom arrived here last Sunday because she wanted to help me with my enrollment. There was a problem with my subjects regarding the pre-requisites. Good thing it was solved already. :) Later that afternoon when she arrived, we went directly to SM Masinag to eat and buy some food for dinner. Another thing was I wanted to see Xyriel Manabat (Anna Manalastas in 100 Days to Heaven) and Angeline Quinto.  We went there and then waited for many hours and then finally we saw them. Angeline was the first one I saw. I randomly stood at the rightmost side of the stage. I didn't know where they were. After so many hours of waiting I finally saw Angeline. I was surprised when she appeared infront of me, smiled and said "hi". I was holding my phone, shocked, I wasn't able to take a picture. Haha. After a few minutes, I saw Xyriel Manabat. I was shocked, she was so small and so cute!!.. :) Then again, I was shocked, I did raise my phone but I forgot that the capture button was at the side. Haha! Poor me.

Lumapit na nga, di ko pa nakunan, malayo tuloy nakuha ko. tsk. Sayang!. :) Anyway, ayun, then si Xyriel naman nakunan ko ng malayo kaso, masyadong malabo na haha. :D nakakahiya na ipost dito.

I really need to sleep. Tulog na mga tao dito. Hope it will not rain hard tomorrow morning para makauwi ng maayos si mommy. Goodnight everyone! :)
