Earth Hour 2010

Last year, when the world shifted into darkness, when darkness did not indicate the presence of evil, when darkness was for the good, when darkness shone a light to the hearts of Earthly human beings, when darkness was obtained for one hour, darkness was for Earth Hour.

This year, the world was overwhelmed with darkness, again. Darkness is a good feeling during Earth Hour. Though only a few participated, darkness was happiness for those few. They were happy, because they were able to help Earth, because they took part of a wonderful event for our wonderful Earth.

I was one of those people who became happy with just one hour of darkness. Though, honestly, I abhor those who did not participate, I still get the good sense of being for turning off, not just lights, but all appliances in our house.

It's my second time to join Earth Hour, and I'm proud of it. Some may say that turning off lights for one hour only in one year is futile, but actually, it can make a big significance to our withering Earth. Besides, it's just one hour, only in one year. Do the math, people.

My name may be MARS, but I belong here on EARTH, and every year, I shall partake in EARTH HOUR.

My blog has been UNDER CONSTRUCTION for about a year, and FINALLY, it's not anymore. *claps*

It's summer vacation, and just yesterday, my friends and I had a skin-darkening beach escapade. Today, I was awfully bored. Switching tv channels didn't help, the shows were boring. Movie marathon, though I did not try today, may not be a big help, too. I want to do something productive today. But I ended up sitting in front of the computer, surfing the net. It was still boring. Suddenly, a flashbulb just popped out of my head. And I came up with a decision to customize my blog, and delete the UNDER CONSTRUCTION theme of it.

Some may think that it's not productive, but for me, it's already an achievement. I breathe a sigh of relief, as I watch my blog without the big UNDER CONSTRUCTION warning welcoming me. I know it's not a beautiful blog, but it's good enough for a beginner like me. At last, I get a tinge of a proud feeling for my blog, that I want to brag it and endorse it to hundreds of people. But, I still want to keep it low. Only few people read my blog, perhaps only two. First, among any, would be me, and the second one is Chrisia. She's the only one whom I told my blog about. My sister knows about my blog, but she doesn't really read my posts, only if I compel her to do so. Jel knows about my blog, she found out about it. She has read my posts, but I think she already stopped reading them. I still have to choose whether I'll endorse my blog or not, but for now, I will not.

I hope my new blog appearance will inspire me to write more.

She is Back

The state of life where I dally, dawdle, or daydream, in the blogging sense, so to speak.

My life has drastically changed from boring school days to heavily-equipped-school-projects-and-requirements school days. I do not mean that my school days are boring, because my school days are just as fun and exciting. Crushes, stomach butterflies, sparkling eyes, heart-melting smiles, never-ending chit chats, and earth-shaking laughters. You can never ever get them from any other environment than school. What I meant was about school projects. It was boring in the SCHOOL-related activities part, because the aforementioned exuberant scenes were not academic. Now, my school days have become unadulteratedly academic.

We were care-free students, who are easy-go-lucky, but heaven and earth collided. We were faced to stress-causing projects and pressure-filled requirements. Our teachers were heartless. The aura of apathy is surrounding our teachers. They just keep on instructing us what to do, not thinking about our capacity to do it. Of course, we can do all those, but the time given for us to accomplish the tasks were not feasible. They demand so much from us, forgetting that we have more subjects, not only one. We are not robots, and we have no multiple bodies to multi-task. You want clones? Oh, I wish I could have one!

Now, look at what my teachers have done! I have been latent in blogging since January. I have not even written about my 18th birthday! I blame this all to them. Who else could I blame? And I am not blaming the victim here, because we are the victims of their dictatorial regime.

This is basically my synthesis of my January-to-March activities. Quite short? Yeah, because it's a synthesis, but it's going to be long, longer than what you'll ever imagine.
