I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

I am Stressed to Death, MayDay!
Pasensya at ako'y sabog.
The past two weeks have been very hectic and chaotic. It drained me big time, but not totally. I can't imagine what it will be like when everything gets rougher, like the Thesis Defense week. OMG! I'm still not fixed with my topic. It's not yet in order -- from my RRL to Methodology. I need peace and solitude to think about what should I do before I get a 360 degrees change for my thesis proposal. I hope I won't get too paranoid just like what happened to a friend. She had been diagnosed with Severe Anxiety and Depression because of too much academic pressure and some other "un-DIVULGE-able" things. Scary, isn't? Good thing she's fine now.
After the scholastic storm comes a silver lining. I apologize for that corny line -- for lack of a better statement. I just treated myself with M&M's Milk Chocolate Candies. I think I deserve it somehow. I've had a lot of frustrations this week. I have to pamper myself with one of my comfort food to forget about them. I just love chocolates like crazy! For me, they're my stress reliever, aside from surfing the web and buying some new stuffs. If only I haven't spent much this week, I would have bought the new (at least for me) chocolate I saw in store -- Cadbury Moments. Sorry, I haven't been informed about it. How about you, how do you cope with stress?
