Click on the Standings and Statistics... hopefully they'll be updating it RealTime and you'll be able to see if I made a goal - got manhandled (Joke lang Mai...^^). And to think everyone in the Women's Team (well almost everyone, to my knowledge) had orthodontic treatment (READ: b-r-a-c-e-s). Not to worry though - I have a mouthguard from ShockDoctor, and LOTS of padding and a decent helmet with a full cage. To quote our dear coach: "I want everyone coming home beautiful."
Athens - I will be gone until Sunday evening. Be back on the last flight in from Hong Kong. Mrf. Which will be well past my supposed bedtime which will undoubtedly be postponed until 2am. Gr. No skipping classes as well, have this group work or individual chuva that we have to do in my PHILPER (Philosophy of the Person) class (yes Mai, the prof I *really* do not like...)
On other notes, I am going to say thank you to Ube and Alden, and Katkat for giving me several well-wishes as well.^^ Heheheh... I will come back safe and sound, mrf. *mutters* You'd think that i was going to the moon. *coughcough - smiles again*
Oh well... so I guess I'll be back when I get back.^^ The sentimental indiot in me's bringing piccies of my dearest (darling) friends.^^ *pauses* then again, maybe that's not such a good idea should any mishap of Fate happen and the pics start moving like the ones in Harry Pot-pot, I would have to contend with panic attacks and screeches from Mai, 'Are you okay?'s from numerous head bobbing in and out of the photo and finally, Mai having a heart-attack.^^ (Yes, I still have not forgotten the hilarity of 'neesan going ballistic.^^ Ehihi.)
Sige, at lalayas na ako.
Ciao mes amis.

Logging in for a few...
Am at Netopia at the moment, passing the time until I have to hitch my butt down back to class. Am looking up the YMCA website for the tournament thanks to Mom and checking out the roster just for kicks. Am also lurking in Tokyochat, but can't contribute much since I don't really know the people there that well.
*pauses to browse*
I'm leaving on Wednesday... and have been packing (partially) and getting stuff ready. Tonight we've got one more practice, though it seems as though several of the girls might not attend. Not that we'll be short of people though, just a few here and there, which we can deal with. The jerseys will be distributed tonight - I think - and we'll be surrendering our sticks to the captains and to coach. Can hardly wait.
Feel a little... off about leaving. Hasn't exactly sunk in as of yet, and by the looks of things it'll only sink in once I'm on the airplane... It's sinking though, since I'm actually experiencing (oddly enough) little bouts of panic since I woke up this morning. Nothing major - just not used to traveling alone - technically.
Maybe I ought to keep a journal for the trip - considering that between the games, sleeping, eating and possible shopping I'll have nothing to do... with the exception of reading The Sky Over Dimas and writing the reaction paper for LITERA1 for it. At least I'll get work done and will just have to type it up when I get myself back here, right?
*pauses again and reads through her entry*
Well, I guess that's about it for now. I really don't have anything else to add at the moment and I'd better get going anyway.
Ciao ma belles.

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.

"I love Amy Lee from Evanescence and admire her style in singing. Her voice is heartbreaking and it just gets to you. I'm not saying I want to be her, but to be able to sing as good as she can, and as honest as she can... that's enough."
