Fact. I am a true Couch Potato.

Fact. The Apple Ipad2 is stronger than it looks.

These, I have proven to myself without a doubt. How, you ask?

Recently, I had the misfortune of falling down the stairs with my ipad.

Luckily, I was able to hang on the railings and so stop in the middle of the stairs. My ipad was not so lucky. It gracelessly fell down to the last steps.

But due to the extreme pain I was feeling at that time, I didn’t noticed the ignoble fate my ipad had, for my attention was focused on screaming at the top of my lungs. That is, to let everyone know within shouting distance how much in pain I was. I’m not one to suffer in silence.

After the debacle, we found out to our surprise that the ipad sustained not even a scratch. Surprise? Yes, I am. I was not expecting the ipad to be capable of avoiding any damage after such a fall.

But for me, I wasn’t so lucky. Couldn’t handle the pain (I have low-threshold of pain) and so went to the hospital emergency. Waited for a loooong time to have my xray, only to find out that the doctors have no experience handling bone injuries, but told I had chip fracture, had a cast on my left foot, then advised to go to another ortho doctor for a second opinion.

Now comes to why I believe I may be a true-blue couch potato…

Because even after having a cast, and thus no mobility at all for the first few weeks (because of the pain and the cast), my activities for the past few weeks really didn’t change AT ALL.

There is no activity to be curtailed. No plans to be postponed.

I am still where I am, doing what I do every day… The cast didn’t affect anything except I have a hard time going to the comfort room and I have my food brought up to my room (which is a plus).

What it boils down to is, cast or not, my life goes on seamlessly.

I’m in love with this manga.

Although I sometimes feel a bit irritated with the protagonist Onodera Ritsu’s insistence that he has no feelings for Takano Masamune, but then that is just my impatience talking. I guess you cannot hurry love after all.

I also feel that the side characters’ stories also help with me not feeling bored with the manga, their stories are also cute! Although sometimes I kind of want to find out more about Ritsu and Takano before the mangaka finds it necessary to switch to another character’s storyline. But I guess that’s the way to make us hunger for more. Wise mangaka!

I know I’m pretty late with this, but I just finished watching episode 5 of the anime. So many “kyaa!” moments, it’s a good thing I’m alone in my room right now. I’m currently wasted due to severe heart palpitations!

I find it a little hard watching at first, because the colors of the anime was so light I sometimes find it hard distinguishing features. I don’t know if it’s because of my computer’s setting, whatever, I got used to it so it’s ok.

I am soo in love with Takano Masamune right about now!

My sis and I bought a new one just last month, although she doesn’t get to use it very often because of work. I, on the other hand, uses it a lot! I wake up and it’s the second thing I look for (the first is my glasses). I use it even while eating. Yup, that’s how crazy I am at the moment. What do I use it for? Need you ask?

To read manga, of course! And it’s very convenient for me. I could read while lying on my bed, sitting at Starbucks or Seattle’s Best, basically everywhere I go I bring it along with me!

Well, anyway, christmas had come and gone. This year I don’t think I enjoyed it very much.    I wasn’t the one who decorated the house, I ended up delegating my gift shopping. I think I was in “hibernation”, and woke up just in time to see christmas come to an end. I hope next year would be better. In the meantime, there’s the celebration for the new year to look forward to.

I wasn’t able to complete Simbang Gabi. Part of me is pretty disappointed about it because then I will not be able to make a wish. Pretty stupid and selfish of me to attend mass for that reason, I know. But I tried it once and by some coincidence my wish came true. And I was hoping to make another one this year. Well, I guess it was not meant to be.

I’ve decided that instead of making a wish and hoping it will come true, I WILL MAKE IT COME TRUE FOR ME. I thought about it, and really, my wish is attainable, if only I have the fortitude to see it through to the end.

Now my goal is clear for the new year. I am hoping that through hard work and perseverance, I will get my reward.

Good luck, me…
