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.

day 06 - a song that reminds you of somewhere
One of the most memorable places for me was the Elias B. Lopez co-ed Dormitory of UP Mindanao. I used to stay there for almost three and a half months from April to July 2007. My parents allowed me to try sort of an independent life by letting me join the yearly Summer Bridge Program for chosen upcoming freshies of our school. It usually lasts for a month and is scheduled before the official start of the school year in UP. SBP participants are lucky enough to experience life in UP before the freshmen get to undergo it.
My dorm life was extremely one heck of an adventure. It was only there where I have tried late night crash courses and sleepovers with my closest girl buddies even though room-hopping was prohibited, and we do it almost every night! Well, that was pretty fun though despite the scolds we always get from the guard. The thing is, when you're young and adventurous you tend to break the rules just to enjoy every moment. But I know that's wrong.
When my friends and I get in a rut, we just trifle those boring hours away by listening to good music. We do it while chitchatting and food tripping. Girl thing, right? We loved to listen to Killer Bee 89.9 then, and the song we like to listen to all the time was Augustana's Boston. I love that song, not only because I love the soulful piano accompaniment of the song, but also because it reminds me of my happy dorm days with my friends. So, here's the song.
Boston by Augustana
