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.

Things That Made Me Smile

08:52Am - Sorry, I couldn't think of any creative title for this blog post. I'm bugged by many things again. I know the content is more important, right? Because I'm feeling a little nervous for this Friday's Thesis Proposal Plenary, I just want to think of happy thoughts to calm myself a bit. I'm actually thinking of opening my Happiness Bottle since I'm feeling down at the moment. Should I? Let me get it for a minute.
08:54Am - I'm two minutes late. Anyway, I'm going to pick ten happy notes that I'll be sharing you in random order. This is going to be fun (Well, at least for me. LOL!) So now, let the picking begin:
The first note: "I'm happy because Caramel got used to our home! Welcome little kitty!" By the way, Caramel is the kitten I found at school She's so cute. I uploaded pictures of her in Facebook. She's the one I'm holding in my sole picture for this post. My Mom wants to change her name to Ginger. I think it's better. What do you think?
The second note: "The song Endless Love makes me feel so in love!" I'm totally into that song now. It's just so romantic. I can imagine it being sang while I walk down the aisle when the perfect time comes. I want to download different versions of it. I haven't liked any Glee songs, but this one's actually good. Do you know any covers of it aside from Glee?
The third note: "I'm happy because I made Ciovic happy because of what I wrote about him." I guess you've already read my post about The Mystic Boyfriend. If not, just click the link provided. He also told me that he shared that piece to his cousins from Manila. That just goes to show that I really made him smile somehow. He said I made him cry! He also said that he will write me a letter of response. Can't wait to read it!
The fourth note: "I'm happy because I'm at home with Mom. I went home early because our teacher seemed not to be in the mood to teach. Quiz postponed!" My Mom was sick that time when I wrote that note. It's good to be with Mom alone, because we get to talk more. I actually miss our dates at Merco (Davao Doc). We used to eat there a lot before. I hope that happens again soon. I love you, Mom!
The fifth note: "The semester is about to end. I'm happy because I'm going to have more time to work on my thesis." This sem has totally been rough for me. Hopefully this summer break, I'll have a luxury of time to interview my respondents. I want to graduate this October. I have to! I need to help my Mama and Papa lessen their financial problems. I need to find a good job to help my family. This time, I have to practice being noble. No joke intended.
The sixth note: "I'm happy because I get write more, unlike before. Mom told my sister she's proud of me." When my sister Mikee relayed to me what Mom has said, I felt like I was on a cloud nine. She said my sister should read my posts because I have good ones. How sweet of that, eh? I'm now more inspired to write substantial write-ups because she is my reader. I hope she knows more about me and my deepest thoughts through Mystic Nymph.
The seventh note: "I'm happy because I got a new pen from my father for my write-ups." I still write using pen, although we already have computers here at home. I feel pressured writing my papers in front of the monitor. It's like I can't think of anything good to talk about in my essays. I can express more and better using my paper and pen instead. That's what you call cognitive dissonance. Learned that from Communication Theories 101 in first year college.
The eighth note: "I'm happy because I went to church with my sisters." It has been weeks since I've last heard the word of God. We had a lot of activities that were scheduled on a Sunday. I apologize for that My Lord! What I've learned in church yesterday was: The degree of God's grace is equal to everyone of us. We are all sinners saved by the grace of God. I've heard a lot of messages like that, but that was what I really needed to hear whenever I feel such a bad person.
The ninth note: "I'm happy because I had a food trip bond with two of my best friends once again." Regine, Dwaine and I ate at Picobello and Zabadani Cafe. We enjoyed Pico's Quattro Stagioni and Con Salsiccie; and Zab's Qatayaf, Dajaj Kebab and Pita Shateerah. It was actually two weeks ago. That was a gastronomic blast indeed. Their company is the best I had. We laugh and talk about inane stuffs whenever we're together. I'll be posting about it as soon as Reg uploads our photos.
The tenth note: "I'm happy because Ciovic's coming home in a week." He has been in Manila for more than a month, and I badly miss him. He's there for his grandfather's burial, and family reunion as well. I'm also happy for him because he finally got what he always wanted. His tito gave him a precious gift -- a drum set! How cool is that! Now I can see him play anytime, since I'm not allowed to go out at night when gigs are usually scheduled.
10:29Am - That's it for today readers. I hope you had fun reading my happy notes. You can also do the same. Let's all together collect our happy thoughts and experiences in a bottle.
