Last day of term break...

And I'll be headin' back to the woodwork. *sighs* Actually, I can't wait. Considering that I'll be going jogging with D and several other girls from hockey. Which is great. I do sincerely hope that things start looking up for everyone.

Anyway... I just came back from voice lessons with Ms. Annie - the first lesson where I barely sung (just vocalization) and focused more on recording two songs onto my cassette tape. Turns out Ms. Annie 'detected' the hitch in my singing range today and decided that she'd rather not take any chances and just wait until the hoarse spell is over.

I'll be attending (hopefully) regular lesson from now on, considering that I don't have classes on Tuesdays, at all. I'm prayin' hard that that won't bother my training at La Salle though, since I'm gonna need it. So I'll be doing my best to work things out with Dad regarding the hatid-sundo (bringing and fetching) with regards to school on that day.


I'll be going over to St. Scho this Friday night (6-9 pm) because I'm gonna take the tie to watch Ice perform in Dance Edge. *laughs* That'll be great - seeing one of my highschool buddies groove on the stage of St. Cecils. And what's better is that it's the perfect opportunity for bonding time with Flip, Maia-love, D, and Meloi. I'm sincerely crossing my fingers that Isis will be able to come. Sis! Try please! this is Ice we're talking about!


Other than that, things are pretty slow. Mai's pageant is on Thursday, the Wednesday Gang (hopefully we'll be complete - I sincerely hope that...) will be meeting tomorrow - sana naman for once, perfect attendance!

Marc, pre, I'm really sorry if you planned to call one time a few nights back and all you got was a busy tone - the phone was busted at the time and it took awhile before it was fixed. Hope I get to see you tomorrow - or if not, I'm hopping over to your blog and your LJ now to check up on you. I'm sorry if I didn't get to comment... it's been insane on this part and my memory'r pretty short these days. But one time we'll talk and then you'll talk and I'll just listen. Okay? Take care, okay? For all of us.


With regards to seveeral other matters... I find it very disturbing that plagiarism should even exist in Blogger, particularly since it's really stupid if that person thinks that they can get away with it.

That's basically all I have to say about that little tidbit because I don't want to waste any more saliva. Added: I just want to know that if there's any way that I can help those filing for 'justice' (Man, that is so WuFei) with regards to everything, I'll be backing them up. It's only right.

*laughs as she peers through D's newest entry* Peeps! You gotta check this girl out [PLUG] - she's hilarious and really twisted with regards to humor. And oh, for those who're looking for her comment boxes -> they're the 'dried blood-red petals' at the bottom of the entries.^^ Heheheheh...


Quiz-spree c/o Harle and D:

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Striding through the fields, carrying a reflective halberd, cometh Melina Dauphin! And she gives a gutteral roar:

"I'm going to clobber you for such a long time, Buddha will explode!!!"

Find out!
Enter username:
Are you a girl, or a guy ?

V. funny... considering that 'Buddha' is a term I've been using often...^^ Let's try again...

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Lo! Who is that, rampaging through the hotel lobby! It is Ielle, hands clutching a burning branch! She screams apocalyptically:

"I'm going to pound you until you have puppies!!!"

Find out!
Enter username:
Are you a girl, or a guy ?

created by beatings : powered by monkeys

Beware the puppies! Heheheheh... nothing particularly catchy yet. Let's do this again...

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Running over the cliffs, cutting down all who dare stand in the way using an oversized scalpel, cometh Ielle Pico! And she gives a vengeful howl:

"I'm going to fuck you so forcibly, you will wake up from the Matrix!!"

Find out!
Enter username:
Are you a girl, or a guy ?

created by beatings : powered by monkeys

*blinkblink* Aiiight. Fine... this is presently disturbing since Mom will have something to say about the battlecries... *laughs* But I like this one...^^ Heheheh...

I mean it! Last one!

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Rampaging over the mini-mall parking lot, brandishing a sharpened screwdriver, cometh Noelle! And she gives an ominous cry:

"I'm going to beat you until war is peace!!"

Find out!
Enter username:
Are you a girl, or a guy ?

created by beatings : powered by monkeys

Now that's what I call a battlecry! Heheheh... and to think, that's my real name.^^

And I tried this out using *someone*'s name.^^ D, Mai - since you know the guy, it was positively hilarious.^^ I'll send you guys the image one time.^^


Right before I end this - I'd just like to say that I'm glad things are looking up.

Last minute ShoutOuts:
Bernie - I have a template idea, you up for it? I'm meeting the girls tomorrow, But I'm not so sure about Friday. My schedule sucks MWF. I'll draw it up for you so you could check it out.

Mai - I'm sorry for a downer on the last minute... but I need help again. Read this email sent in by one of the 'two' that we were discussing. Leche, nawawalan ako ng pasensya. Ayaw talaga makinig and it pisses me off na considering that I don't want to... *sighs* give up. Bwes, I'll see you tomorrow. Take care, 'nee.

Current Theme: Blame it on the Weatherman - B*witched
It's just one day / No one said /
There would be rain again /
Won't blame it on myself /
I'll blame it on the weatherman /
Get away for a while /
Here I am out on my own again /
Won't blame it on myself /
I'll blame it on the weatherman /

I am so bleedin' behind everyone's lives.
(I'm seriously contemplating a drink.)

Here I am, yet again, in my Mom's office since she and Dad and Nate left the house. I've sent in an email to the FaeryOracle e-groups that I joined a couple of weeks back and is probably the first decent contribution I've ever had on that ML.

Things are... okay, basically. I guess I'll finally take Athens' advice and just stop trying to help people who don't want to be helped.

*blinks* That sounded so wrong... so I will now proceed to something lighter.

I miss my LJ. Which, is probably why I'll be doing what I can to copy and paste all the entries that are here, to there... the entries that are appropriate. Mrf.


I need to speak with the Pantheon. Sometime soon would be cool. Wednesday would be great. It's a certain matter that I would wish to discuss and cannot do unless the whole group is complete. The Pantheon which I am speaking of refers to Mai, Sis, Harle, D and Kai. Yes, even the last on is included and I hope that those aforementioned will participate and humor the girl who is requesting this.


I scored my first goal at Gameworx yesterday... and to be very, very honest, it hasn't sunk in... yet. But, I will say that I plan to do my very best to 'work my ass off' (quoting from the Training Pool 'creed' last year) and improve - and soon.

The Hong Kong trip looks slim for the girls... not exactly the kind of boost I would have wanted for everyone who wants to go. And I hope (dearly and sincerely) that we can change that situation for now. I mean, it's a dream - and as I've often told myself, if you gotta dream - dream BIG. Which is what I'm doing. Hopefully, the dream will come true.

I'm not coming out with an August issue for SLAPSHOT primarily because I've got three items that could be articles and that's not nearly enough for the paper space that I have. So I'll prolly be making an Aug-Sept issue instead to make up for lost time. It's actually practical, considering that the latter end of August is mostly FINALS week and is basic hell for everyone in the La Salle area.

Congrats, are therefore due to the newest DL on the block a.k.a. D/S'lette, my wonderful teammate and friend/sister.^^ Heheheh... ano sunod, sis? Lovelife?^^ Ehihihi...

I didn't really make DL... contrary to my personal hope and wishes. Which mean I have to work harder this term to get that DL I so badly have my eyes trained on (yet again, DREAM BIG). But the fact that I've passed all my subjects (for the first time since I stepped into DLSU last year) with the lowest grade of 2.0, a present GPA of 2.75 and a grade of 3.5 in my ARTCOMP class to finally remove the 0.0 I got on COMP1BU, the Business equivalent that I took last year third term... that's enough for me to smile and relax.

I can play hockey, since I passed, therefore rendering my Dad's ultimatum void. And I'm happy with the improvement on my life. Makes a girl feel lucky.


And now, I am seriously thinking of fixing my template again to a 'higher version' - Version 6.0 - Back on Track. Am looking for the pictures and the colors that should go with the motif.^^ Heheheh... and for the top part, I plan to scan several images (Harle, you're gonna love this) from my Faeries' Oracle deck so that the Little Bits of Fae Wisdom that I've taken as a daily habit be posted every week.

Yes, this is Mel getting her life back in order. Which means I'm returning to working on both AB and Points of Five via my notebooks. Updates are still vague though, since I have stuff to organize before that.


Makes me think that everything's going to be looking in the 'up' direction from now on - but then again, going uphill was never easy - but worth all the hard work in the end.

*smiles* Yup! I'm back in business again. Now where are all my darlin's to comment on my boxes. I miss you all 'terribly'.^^

Stuff I've finished 'widowing' on the piano:
Colourblind by Darius, the mellow-piano version
If We Hold On Together from The Land Before Time OST

My Current Theme:
One Step Forward (Two Steps Back) by Noelle Pico & Colourblind by Darius


Christmas season is already on the way the Ber-months have finally arrived. Wishlists up people!

Melina Noelle Dauphin is 18 years of age born on the 18th of April 1985 at 9:25 am, on the cusp of Aries and Taurus.

She is a Wiccan by choice with Roman Catholic roots thanks to her parents and believes everything has a reason, and that fate does not equal coincidence.

She is surrently studying at De La Salle University and will be taking up Behavioral Sciences come 1st term, 2003.

Her great loves include her music, dancing, writing, reading, hockey, Tolkien, Dragonlance, the Mighty Ducks (both animated and the non-animated), and art in general.

She is known in various names such as Mel, Lina, Mia D (Devlin?), Noelle/Noey, Noei, Nyre, Lynne, Lillie, Noele, Nibblet...all depending on what fandom/ mood/ life/ timeframe/ universe she's in. (MPD anyone?)

She wishes she were part Irish, is desperately learning how to speak Gaelic (and Cajun) and dreams of setting foot in New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras, or on the shores of Ireland for Midsummer's Eve.
