born on [February 12] and I'm sweet. I study at [St. Joseph] as a second year high school student! I LOOOVE clothes, shoes, food, music, hair and make-up (what girls don't?) so you will see a lot of that kind of content in my blog. If you know me well, you'd learn that I'm actually kind of nerdy, down to earth, real, and definetly NOT like anyone else.

Back to top, baby.
Music: N.E.R.D. - Maybe
Today is the Santacruzan.
A religious procession tradition from the Philippines celebrated all over the world in Filipino communities that commemorates St. Helen, the founder of the cross that Jesus died on and her son, Constantine, founder of Constantinople.
Basically, those in the parade have special roles they must portray and are in gowns to represent these "reynas", usually holding a special object. The most important one, I guess, is the Reyna Elena, who holds the cross.
Some other organizations have pageants for these roles, but this is a Santacruzan. It shouldn't be about who looks better in a bikini or something like that. So, they choose someone to be a Hermana (old person) along with a Hermano (old person's partner) and they choose someone to be a Reyna Elena. In the Philippines, it's kind of a big deal and such a great honour but more often than that I feel that my peers are embarassed for me so I just play along. In reality, I'm actually really proud to be a Reyna. It's always good to stay true to your roots =)
So, I've prepared accordingly today. Taking on such a responsibility means doing a lot of crap in preparation. But I know it's worth it.
Food, arches, glittering a bunch of letters, and writing that big letter, oh mama...
Also, don't lie, who doesn't want to be in the limelight for at least a few hours, even if it means walking around in a gown in a parking lot.
Anyways, these days have been a lot centred around me and how I want things, but I seem to always forget about my grandma. My grandma is the Hermana and I just feel really bad because she doesn't have a Hermano and all along I've been passive agressive towards the fact that Tubby Kev is my consorte because he's my cousin and I thought that was weird. I had someone in mind and asked him, but of course my family insisted and since I owe everything to them, I had no choice. Anyways, I really wish I found a partner for my lola. My grandpa died when my mom was 12 or something and her boyfriend died like last year. I wish I could just walk beside her. She's a bit of a social butterfly, though. I'm sure a lot of people will be around her <3>
We wet to Square to get my eyebrows done but them fuckers were asking 10 bucks for just eyebrow threading so =*****( wow, k I actually REALLY need them. For sure I loafted and it's my fault.
After that we went to Tims to help him with his Science Cat! The intro is jokes, thanks to yours truly for being awesome with mac iMovie... DUH. I swear me and Miyorkz always help Tim with his projects and manage to make them better than we could produce for our own stuff.
