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

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.

ANYWAY.

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. 😀 i’ll type it in here just to give my hand a rest from writing.

¡Hola! Me llamo Erika-Anne Therese de Leon de la Cerna. Tengo veinte años. Soy estudiante en la Universidad de San Carlos. Estoy en mi cuarto año como estudiante de Ciencias Politicas. Yo me crié 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 año 2004. Nos mudamos cuando tenia trece años de edad. Antes de eso, que solía 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, verá 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 pequeño maltés llamado “Einstein” que es libre para caminar alrededor de la casa. El garaje es donde también tenemos la lavadora.

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

La casa principal tiene la mayoría de las habitaciones. Que tiene once habitaciones. La primera planta tiene cinco habitaciones. En la primera planta, hay un salón, 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 salón es donde tenemos una televisión.

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 habitación también tiene la televisión con la PlayStation3.

Mi habitación es la habitaciones de las chicas. Tiene un televisión 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 también compartió habitación de las chicas. El baño está entre las habitaciones de los chicos y las chicas.

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

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

¡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.

¡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. 😉

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. 😀

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.

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THE MUSIC. I JUST OWN THE SWAG.

you say DIY? i say DIY-NOT?

LOLSKIES.

Oh, lawd, i wish i had time… found another awesome DIY to do… inspired by the Proenza Sch0uler’s resort 2011 collection… growf…

If you can’t afford em, make them… 😉

here’s what I plan to do, thanks to honestlywtf.com… CLICK HERE

when i have time.

after the midterms.

maybe.

I have to say, Louise’s party was a success! I had so much fun that night, regardless of the slow beginning and the bitter end that had transpired.

YOU JUST HAD TO BE THERE.

It was therapeutic to let loose. I needed that. 🙂

So glad I did it with some of the people closest to my heart… And my toast… 😀

Here are a few pictures that ought to make you jealous… 😉

and don’t worry, it’s all on facebook… 😀

Today marks the beginning of the first hell week of the semester… It sounds evil coz it is.

And to make matters worse, the fuzz finally got the citation they issued me a while back (that they so insensitively stuck under one of my windshield wipers with somebody else’s name on it) right. They’re suspending my Picanto from gracing the rusted green gates for one week! Why? Coz I parked in the faculty area.

NO, IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL. I park there all the time! I got through a WHOLE SEMESTER without a glitch and now they cite me. BOO.

No biggie, though. I did the crime, I’m gonna do the time. I’m a little excited at the prospect of hippety-hopping onto the bright yellow shuttles that carry students and teachers alike to the different buildings in the HUMONGOUS campus.

They should make a mini-movie about it. It should be called “Erika takes the Shuttle”. I should tell Tara about it. LOL.

Yes, I LIKE MASS TRANSIT. So, ha-di-ha-ha to you, you insignificant security-type drones. YOU LOSE.

But, either way, hell week means that I should be spending less time than is normal in school, what with the complex schedule of alternating exams and stuff. There’s another fist-pump for me!

YEAH! IN YO FACE.

I’m so bad-ass. 😉 Judd Nelson would be proud.

Eat… my… toast…

I have been on the BRINK of a nervy b. coz i have absolutely NO IDEA what to wear tomorrow, on Louise’s sure-to-be ULTRA FUN party!

I have been banned from wearing anything that will steal her spotlight so I basically CANNOT wear anything too, too flashy (BOOOOOO…)

I was checking out my followed blogs on Bloglovin again and I stumbled upon this super nice, super laid back outfit that Mary Kate Olsen was wearing that Olsens Anonymous posted. THANKS MUCHO MUCHO…

I AM INSPIRED. 😉

i'm currently searching my clothes archives for what i might have stashed in my closet that looks like this!

I will be posting what I hope will be a good version of a look inspired by hers. 😉

I’ve been known once in a while to show my creative side through stuff I wear, things I make, and whatever else i can get these grubby little paws on.

That being said, while checking out the blogs I follow on bloglovin, I saw this righteous DIY project that I’m SOOOOO ready to jump into. They were posted on the because im addicted blog (click here to see some awesome blog posts!)

So, THIS is what I want to do: WOVEN CHAINS! (found here and here)

When I accomplish this, you guys will be THE FIRST to see what I’m sure will be fantastic DIY bracelets…

Bring it on… 😉

Just so you guys know, I’m all caught up on post-a-week, seeing as it’s only the third week of January and I’ve already come up with four, count ’em, FOUR toasts, er, POSTS.

So Louise, my ickle sibling of the female persuasion, is celebrating her birthday on Friday, the 21st.

too-too-too-doo-doo-doo-doo-too-too-too (a la kuzko on the emperor's new groove) 😛

She’ll be turning 17 (zoot a’lors!) not with a fizzle but with a bang because she’ll be holding a party on Saturday with icing fights, a jump and bounce, catering, karaoke, henna artists, the works!

Kevin, ♥the toast my boiler boils for♥, and I will be combining what minuscule knowledge we each have on the culinary arts to come up with the sweetest, most colorful icing (oh, yeah, coz that needs a lot of culinary expertise, LOL) for the most banging, chaotic, and RIDONKULOUS icing fight, EVAH!!!

Yes, toast boilers, we are going to attempt to turn this:

the most magnificent icing EVAH!

Into this:

nothing but the best for the day's little princess!

She’ll never see it coming! Well, she’ll see the icing coz it was her, after all, who requested the sugary clouds. What she won’t see is its AWESOMENESS because the icing we’re planning on making will reach the heights of awesome which none have ever seen nor dreamed of before!

I might be getting ahead of myself here, folks, seeing as Kevin and I are scrambling to get his mom’s recipe and the kind of ingredients (AND A HAND MIXER!) that we’ll need for this endeavour. But, rest assured, it’s gonna be awesome!

Either way, i’ll be needing some warm, toasty luck from y’all so, WISH IT!

What’s boiling, toasters? I’m thinking the POST A WEEK 2011‘s boiling! 😀 LOLSKIES, that was lame. Hahaha…

So anyway, I read this thing where WordPress is challenging its bloggers to post, post, post once a week, thus the title… POST-A-WEEK… du-uh… in an effort to up the blogging and crush the evil that is writer’s block…

Just call me wondergirl.

Anyway, I’ve decided to take them up on their challenge and I will be posting at LEAST once a week (hey, girl’s gotta blog) about the zany, mysterious, and otherworldly mundane activities that make up that which I have cleverly named my life.

So tune in, more than once a week, if that’s possible, and check to see the awesomeness that is my writing prowess and the perspectives of a sheltered loudmouth babe and how she fares in this, a most formidable of challenges.

En garde, WordPress!
