I am THE master of procrastinators. I’m eating a bowl of fruit, now, and on the Internet, blogging just as I please. I have a Midterm Exam, tomorrow. A MAJOR one, at that. One being given by (wait for it) MS. BRENETTE ABRENICA!!! I am screwed. I have a feeling she doesn’t necessarily like me and my not giving the grades that make her swoon will NOT help this sorry state of affairs.

And what am I doing when I should be reading my ASS off, already? Blogging about it, of course.

Master Procrastinator — my new moniker.

I pick a slice of apple from my bowl of fruit I got at the supermarket.

Adios, toast boilers. šŸ™‚



I am finished! I wrote a full draft with the help of a glittery pencil, some scratch paper, and, of course, Google Translate! šŸ˜‰

It’s no secret and I’m not ashamed to say that I need a little help once in a while. I’m proud of what I know in Spanish and I’m not ashamed to say that it’s not a lot.


Here’s my essay. It’s long, extensive, and detailed (also braggy and slightly obnoxious — YOU HAVE NO SAY IN WHAT OR HOW I WRITE), just like i know la profesora specifically asked it to be. All I can say is that it is all true. šŸ˜€ i’ll type it in here just to give my hand a rest from writing.

Ā”Hola! Me llamo Erika-Anne Therese de Leon de la Cerna. Tengo veinte aƱos. Soy estudiante en la Universidad de San Carlos. Estoy en mi cuarto aƱo como estudiante de Ciencias Politicas. Yo me criĆ© en la ciudad de Cebu. Yo vivo con mi familia grande de dos hermanas, dos hermanos, y mis padres.

Yo vivo en Cebu, en Mabolo. Nuestra casa fue construida en el aƱo 2004. Nos mudamos cuando tenia trece aƱos de edad. Antes de eso, que solƭa vivir en Labangon, cerca de la casa de mis abuelos.

Mi casa es una casa grande. Es una casa de color naranja con una negra puerta y un muro de piedra. Cuando entras en la puerto, verĆ” un garaje con cuatro coches y espacio para dos jaulas para perros. Una de las jaulas tiene un perro labrador retriever llamado “Friskee” y el otro tiene un pastor belga llamado “Judge”. El tercer perrer es pequeƱo maltĆ©s llamado “Einstein” que es libre para caminar alrededor de la casa. El garaje es donde tambiĆ©n tenemos la lavadora.

En realidad, hay dos casas dentro de la puerta. EstĆ” la casa principal y la casa de huĆ©spedes. No es obvio porque es muy juntos. La casa de huĆ©spedes tiene ocho habitaciones. Hay una habitaciĆ³n de invitados, una biblioteca, unas las habitaciones de las ayudantes, un baƱo de los ayudantes, y un baƱo de visitas en la primera planta. En la segunda planta es el gimnasio y otro cuarto de baƱo. La tercera planta tiene una sala de recreo.

La casa principal tiene la mayorĆ­a de las habitaciones. Que tiene once habitaciones. La primera planta tiene cinco habitaciones. En la primera planta, hay un salĆ³n, un comedor, un tocador, una cocina,y una cocina sucia. La cocina es para mi madre cuando ella cocina mientros ques la cocina sucia es para la cocinera. Cada cocina tiene su propio estufa y su propio frigorifico. El comedor tiene una mesa grande con ocho sillas porque yo tengo una familia grande. El salĆ³n es donde tenemos una televisiĆ³n.

Le segunda planta de la casa principal tiene seis habitaciones. Que tiene cuarto de los chico, por mis dos menores hermanos, Uriel Ino III y Joachim Raphael. Que comparten una cama de dos pisos. La habitaciĆ³n tambiĆ©n tiene la televisiĆ³n con la PlayStation3.

Mi habitaciĆ³n es la habitaciones de las chicas. Tiene un televisiĆ³n en una cama grande. Lo comparto con mi hermana menor, Louise Bea Frances. Mi hermana mayor, Justine Emmely Clare, vive en los Estados Unidos con su marido, Michael Anthony Uy Tan, pero ella tambiĆ©n compartiĆ³ habitaciĆ³n de las chicas. El baƱo estĆ” entre las habitaciones de los chicos y las chicas.

La habitaciĆ³n de mi madre, Annie, y mi padre, Inocencio, es el mas grande. Se llama la habitaciĆ³n del maestro. La habitaciĆ³n tiene un televisor de pantalla plana, una cama ortopĆ©dica, y el ordenador de la familia. Mis padres tienen un armario grande que se puede caminar y su propio cuarto de baƱo con una baƱera.

Esta es la casa donde vivo ahora. Le invitamos a venit en cualquier momento.

Ā”Hasta luego!

Whew. That took long to type. Who knew I’d have to use appropriate symbols?! O.o

I hope this is proper Spanish and I hope this gives me a good mark.

Ā”Hasta luego!

ok, Spanish homework time. I like Spanish class, much to the chagrin of some of my friends who aren’t so sure about the teacher. I think liking it is even an understatement. I ADORE IT. I think it’s muy alegria. šŸ˜‰

So, the homework is simply to “describir su casa” or describe your house. and our teacher specifically said, “LARGO” to signify that she didn’t want some piddly-diddly little 3-sentence paragraph. She wanted to be amazed.

Well, get ready.

I’m not going into work, today, because, let’s face it, it’s freaking boring and, in the blunt and honest words of my friend, Merry, it’s ABSOLUTELY not what I want to do with my life. So here I am, munching on pringles, armed with my laptop and a piece of yellow paper and a pen. The laptop is for when I don’t know the word I want to use.

My motto for homework for this class is: when you can’t relate, Google Translate!

Lol, but I’m no quitter. I really go as far as I can with what little knowledge I have in Spanish and then I translate. Hehehe. it’s pretty handy.

So, despues this new post, I shall make my deberes as accurately and as extensive as i possibly can.

you see how dumb i can be?

Boiling toast like this can be fun. šŸ˜€

That is probably like the millionth time somebody tried to spell that part of the song. You just can’t type “moves like jagger” coz then nobody will know the exact feeling of euphoria that comes with singing it.

I love Maroon 5 even if I’ve been too poor to go to any of their concerts when they graced the Philippine Islands with their presence.

Adam Levine, you make me wanna move like Jagger.

And, to Christina Aguilera, I loved you when i was a kid and this song and Burlesque makes me love you, now, too. To be clear, I’m not saying I’m not a kid anymore. HAHAHA. Little 90s child humor, there.

So, because I love you toast-boilers so (whoever you are in the vast universe — IF THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WILL TAKE TIME TO WATCH REBECCA BLACK’S FRIDAY, THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WILL READ MY BLOG! BELIEVE YOU ME!), I am going to posty-post a link to this video that I posted on YouTube because VideoPress sucks and costs way too much. I worked tirelessly on this video of me dancing to Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 feat. Christina Aguilera.
