My German Blog

http://drmcmuffinlearnsgerman.wordpress.com/

Para tumaas naman ang hits.

I made this blog for my German 10-11. It’s called a learning portfolio. Frau Jeanne Arroyo said that we can post anything we want in our portfolio. You can even have it handwritten. But being me, I would like to post some youtube videos and pictures, I went for the online one.

I read it, and it felt good that now I have learned a lot about the German language.

Viel Spass!

(il)Literature

I seldom read. I can’t even stand my readings for my school subjects. I only read when I’m really bored  or when I’m in travel.

When I was a kid, my mom said I read stuff at an early age. I read newspapers, print ads, pretty much anything readable. I don’t know but I think I hate now what I loved doing in my childhood. (except watching TV, and food)

I made this post because I think I don’t read enough books. I feel pressured because sometime in the last month, some of my classmates went to Fully Booked to avail the book sale. They went to buy at least 5 books. And I even can’t choose one. And I see their “to-read” lists over the Christmas Break, and I didn’t think I would read that much over a short amount of time.

I come to think that what I lack in reading, I invest in watching. But it isn’t the same as reading a book.

Ngayon, napag-isip isip ko kung bakit ako hindi mahilig magbasa:

I have imagination problems. When I read books, I tend to picture the characters as they are portrayed in their respective films. Hahahaha.

E-mail from the Past

I got my email last Monday, which I sent 3 years ago. Thanks to futureme.org.

Dear FutureMe,

Na-cool-an ka sa ginawa ni Kuya Kel (Michael Flores, UP Circuit) nung 2005. Eventually, nareceive na niya ngayon yung email niya last 3 years ago. So, that is 6 years from time mo ngayon.

May exam ka sa EEE 23 bukas, Sabado, 4-7 pm. 1st long exam yun. Sana 1 take mo lang ang EEE 23, at naexempt ka sa Finals. Kinakabahan ka na. Pero di ka pa rin nagrereview.

Syempre, di mo makakalimutan na bumagsak ka sa EEE 33. Sana pumasa ka na ng second take. 5th year second sem ka na, so by that time.. nosebleed EEE na ang kinukuha mo.

Kapag nagshift ka na, sana related sa Medicine ang pinagshiftan mo. Nainspire ka kasi sa Grey’s anatomy.

Siyanga pala, nasa 2nd season ka pa lang ng Grey’s Anatomy. Nagpromise ka na nasa 5th season ka na by the end of the year.

Anung season kaya nag-end ang Grey’s? Saka Heroes, Chuck, The Office at Desperate Housewives. Dapat nasubaybayan mo na rin ang 90210, Gossip Girl, Entourage, 30 Rock.

At bet mo na nga pala si Kenny, Crystal at Bob sa Survivor Gabon, nanalo kaya ang isa sa kanila?

By the way, kaka-second thread pa lang ng Djokovic Thread sa PinoyExchange. Andun si ate jennyian, yeomyung, liyan, mykel, sarahtancredi, mrazmaniac at iba pang Djokophiles. By this time, Australian Open 2008 + Tennis Masters Cup 2008 pa rin ang title niya.

P.S Oo nga pala, may napanaginipan ka na naka piggy back ride ang love of your life sayo. Kaso, di mo siya kilala. Sino kaya yun?

P.P.S Sino binoto mo sa 2010 Presidential Elections? Laban pala ni Pacquiao sa Sunday. Si Dela Hoya ang mananalo, sa tingin ko. Syempre alam mo na kung sino nanalo.

 

Very dramatic. Joke.

I would like to answer my e-mail to myself.

Dear PastMe,

Binagsak mo ang exam na yun. LOL. DI KA NGA NAGREVIEW. Pero 1 take mo lang ang EEE 23 at naexempt ka sa Finals. Super proud ka nung nangyari yun.

AT BUMAGSAK KA SA SECOND TAKE MO. Asar. Hindi na EEE kinukuha mo, pero nosebleed pa rin. German 30-31, 40 at Italian 40. Nosebleed.

Nagshift ka na, pero di Medicine related. And Grey’s Anatomy is so.. 3 years ago. LOL.

At natapos mo nga ang 5th season at the end of the year. Tapos nasira computer na ginagamit mo ngayon. Reformat. Tapos ngayon, di mo na pinapanood ang Grey’s dahil 1 season behind ka na. Pero hahabol ka naman.

Hindi pa rin nag-eend ang Grey’s. Yung Heroes, nacancel ng 4th Season. yung Chuck, Season 5, mag-eend pa lang. Yung The Office, di pa mag-eend pero umalis na si Steve Carell. At yung DH, mag-eend na ngayon, Season 8. Yung 90210, tinigilan ko na. Nanonood ako ng Gossip Girl at 30 Rock, pero yung Entourage, no.

At nanalo si Bob sa Survivor Gabon. Hahahaha.

At third thread na ang Djokovic Thread, ikaw ang gumawa. Andun pa rin sina mrazmaniac, sarahtancredi at mykel. Paminsan si yeomyung, ate jenny. Wala na si liyan, nakakamiss. AT APAT NA ANG GRAND SLAM TITLES NI NOLE. WORLD NUMBER 1 NA SIYA. Di mo pa iniisip yun nung time mo. Hahahaha.

P.S Maygad, kung alam mo lang. Hahaha. Di ko pa rin kilala yun.

P.P.S Di ako bumoto sa presidential elections bilang di ako nagregister. President na ngayon si Noynoy. Tapos, nanalo si Pacquiao. Kawawa naman ang gwapong mukha ni Oscar dela Hoya.

 

Declaring yourself in blog hiatus is so high school.

As you may see, I am still active in the social networking scene (check the Twitter widget on your right). Well, paumanhin. Meron akong iPod Touch with a Twitter app. So kahit nasa banyo ako, nagtutweet ako. Wag niyo na lang i-imagine kung kailan.

Anyways, what made me blog this time? My paper in Italian. I have been fussing on it for days. But I still haven’t found the will to do it. Hopefully after I post this, though.

Quick things, I was a bit disappointed that our professor changed the movies we are going to watch for the 2nd World War part of our German 40 class. It was The Pianist (the one with Adrien Brody in it) and Der Untergang. But he changed it to Sophie Scholl and some fun film with Hitler in it (forgot the title).

Share ko lang, our group is assigned to report about the East Germany, so we are tasked to watch Das Leben Der Anderen (won the Oscars) and Sonnenallee. Sana hindi na palitan.

Other thing, I enjoyed our mini-concert in MuL 9 earlier. We played Patangguk. I had the biggest one, so I became the rhythm of the group. Turns out I have concentration problems. I really have to concentrate so that I will not get lost in the rhythm. But I guess our presentation turned out well.

PS. I said to myself that I’ll minimize talking about myself too much in blogs (because I already do it often in microblogs) so this post is of its rare kind. (dapat)
