That is the dumbest, most common threat you could ever come across online or in SMS.
Chain messages come in different forms, however they all have something in common:
"IF you don't pass it on, you'll acquire badluck"
*sigh* That's crazy. What kind of fool ever came up with this stupid idea? What do they gain if people who read their chain messages do pass them to others? What's worse, other people use the name of God in their chain messages to make sure their messages would be passed on to others!!!
The bad thing is these messages are commonly found in e-mails, Friendster, SMS and other places where you can post your messages. There is a high probability that you could come across one of these. The painful part is... your own friends forward these messages to YOU.
"pass this on within one minute or else you'll have badluck for (insert number of years)"
"pass this on or else your crush won't notice you"
"pass this on or else you'll break-up with your BF/GF"
"pass this on or else you'll be haunted by the ghost of (insert name)"
"pass this on or else one of your relatives will be taken away from you"
"pass this on or else your parents will die"
"pass this on or you will die"
Those are some of the common threats found at the end of those absurd chain messages. "So what" you ask? Your friends are the one passing them to you that's what! And they claim to be true friends?
"It's nothing serious, come on"
If it's nothing serious, why did they have to pass it on in the first place? Thinking of it makes me sick. How can they stand sending something like "pass this on or your mom will die" to a friend?
If ever I accidentally read one of these, the chain will be broken by me. I've read a lot of these already yet I'm still alive.
Think about it...passing chain messages like these is just as bad as wishing someone ill.

I used to hate my school...totally. The place where it is situated, the school grounds, the facilities, the atmosphere and some people used to get on my nerves. Now, I'm getting used to it. From the dirt clinging on to my skin whenever I commute, the nasty odors wafting through the air wherever I go (vehicle smoke, cigarette smoke, trash, and Allium cepa in the classroom), the "Unpredictables" on the streets and at school, and the stuff I hate at school. Yeah. Believe it or not, I AM getting used to those things.
"I actually made friends"
I thought that my blockmates were all brainiacs without any social life. Then I reminded myself that I was enrolled in BS Biology. Duh (braindead). Eventually I opened up to them. It was quite hard since they have a different way of thinking. During my Alabang days, spending money wasn't much of a scene. No matter how much you spend, nobody will give a damn. But when I did that during my first Manila days, I was flooded with variations of "ang mahal naman nyan!" I was shocked with their shocked reaction. I wanted to say something like " I'm spending my own money, not yours", but I didn't. I may be blunt sometimes but I know when to keep my mouth shut. Majority of my blockmates are of the "thrifty" type so I had to be the one to adjust to the environment. Soon, I was exposed to street foods and the carinderia. My absolute favorite is the tapsilog. There was even a time when I couldn't get enough of it that's why I always went to the shop selling that food. What else...the tokneneng and the cheesesticks fried in overused cooking oil!!! Hahaha! I won't forget the first time i ate those street foods. Why? We had this little celebration in class and most of the food were of street food variety. I really had fun that day because it reminded me of the Agape thing we used to do in Alabang. It was funny because my blockmates were worried that I might get a stomachache. Luckily I didn't. Heh.
The days went by. Before we knew it, a semester already ended. Our population is already dwindling. Most of our blockmates shifted to another course. It's quite sad because we were just developing ties with each other yet they had to leave already.
It's no secret that most of us dislike a certain person. He's so full of himself and it's driving us crazy. If only he'd change that part of him! He wouldn't have a hard time being liked and accepted by others.
There were some occasions when I became the apple of somebody's eye. It only remained that way though, because I had a boyfriend at that time. There are no regrets by the way.
HE was part of the reason why I opted for this school at the last minute. I thought that we could be together at last and prove to him how much I care for him. But things got nasty during summer break.
Seeing him around school made me feel nauseous sometimes. I won't hide the fact that I dislike him until now, but I won't hide the fact that I still give a damn about him.
I like and dislike going to school. There are people whom I like to see, and there are those whom I don't.
It really is a like and dislike situation.

"Rumors are nice, especially if you want to ruin a person's self-image"
I've been wondering, what has he been telling everyone lately? Stupid lies to hide his own dirt and make me the antagonist? That's soo low. He could've just picked a fight with me. It won't make any difference anyway.
He used to visit me at my school here in Alabang. Hmm, once or twice maybe. The first one was to deliver my college application forms. Yeah. I remember now. I almost got late for Accounting class that day. The second visit was just wala lang. He just came by to have a chat and give me some of the cookies he baked. That was also the time when my friends got to see him personally for the very first time. I had fun that day because his visit made me feel special. Who wouldn't feel the same way? I mean, he came from who-knows-where just to drop by for a while.
I may have forgotten the memories from those days, but some are indelibly printed on my mind. Recently, I heard from a friend of mine that 4 eyes has been reminiscing about our past. I won't react to anything like that if it was only about the reminiscing part. BUT NO!!! He glazed his story with a HUGE amount of sugar coating.
LAYER 1: "I travelled for 2 hours and I only got to see her for 15 minutes..."
LAYER REMOVED: He did travel for 2 hours, but the 15 minutes thing is so wrong!!! I was in highschool then you sick bastard! What did you expect me to do? Cut class?! I didn't have lunch because I wanted to spend more time with you.
LAYER 2: "Huh? I didn't SMS her"
LAYER REMOVED: He said this after my friend asked him if he still SMSed me. He did SMS me that day. He asked something regarding the course t-shirt they were selling. Maybe he thought that I was somebody else. Maybe he misread my name in his phonebook or something...but he already has 4 eyes. How can he still misread things?

Two posts in a day? Now that's boredom for me. I'm really sick right now. My cough is dry, but I have a runny nose. Weird. It's really rare for me to be sick for 2 days. Usually, a cough only lasts a day for me. Looks like I've been hit by something else. I don't have the energy to study right now. I'll show you why.
Behold!!! Blindes Dekrepit! Who wouldn't be depressed seeing an artwork gone all wrong? *sigh* This is so sad. My blinds have been deprived of having a proper disposal.
I already tried watching this DVD my classmate lent me. Thankfully, it diverted my attention from the eerie light coming from the broken blinds.
Still, I don't want to stay there for a while. Things'll only get worse. I hope that I'll get well SOON. I don't want to come to school with bits of tissue stuck up my nostrils. It'll be a good comic relief but I'll pass.
I just hate it when he does that. There are times when I just want to throw something at him. He's so damn annoying.
What would you do if somebody in class gives you and your friends a side glance every time he gets a correct answer in a recitation? Would you just ignore him? Probably. But this person is different. He's so loud when it comes to his achievements. He makes sure that EVERYBODY should hear what he has accomplished. Plus, he's a total suck-up with the professors. Luckily, he can't suck-up to our English professor. What a shame. He gets the lowest grade (assuming) in English.
His physical appearance and personality (I hope his spirituality isn't) are totally ugly. I know it's wrong to judge others, but I can't help it. I just can't. If only his personality would change (even the slightest bit) I'm sure nobody will have any problems with him.

Sideswept bangs, cling wrap-fit tops, skinny jeans and flip-flops... This get-up is EVERYWHERE!!! Geez, i see the same thing wherever i look. Are we in a communist country or what? Girls nowadays look almost the same. It's like they're attending the same school because of their "uniform". I don't have anything against the "IN" stuff, but can't they think of something else to wear or do to make themselves look unique?
I believe that we are beautiful in our own way. That's why we shouldn't limit ourselves to the "IN" stuff. Make a statement and go against the flow. Nothing will happen to you if you just sit around waiting for the next trend.
