INTERNET IS SHITE!!!!


Oh that football field in elementary school holds so many great memories for me! The Don Bosco grounds were enormous in my standards and titanic for someone who came from a quadrangle which looked like a piece of sandwich (no offense to Saint Joseph's my old school but you do have a small playground). I miss our games of luksong-tinik (displayed in the photos) and luksong-baka and hide and seek and many more SOO much!


I miss the gang of playmates who could create any kind of game out of games. You know like they could make tag more interesting by pretending we were policemen and robbers. The sort of imagination that helps kids have a wonderfully innocent time with each other. We were also fond of looking for places within the premises which the school populace never knew existed in the ocean of our ever-unfathomable school grounds. We would play there of course.


I wish I had the excuse to go back and do all the things I mentioned above as an adult all over again. But alas the reasons and circumstances to do so are absent. I cannot act childish anymore although I can be a child at heart. More importantly, the playmates are not around anymore. They have mini-versions of themselves now. They have tummies and they have wives and big cars now. I see them on the profile sites and I hardly recognize them from the puffy faces brought about by cholesterol, alcohol and all the other face-mutating agents. It's not as if i am UNguilty too anyway as I have had many face-altering surgeries LOLOL...


Now all I have is the internet, internet, the internet. This entity has invaded my life and now i feel claustraphobic in its confines!!! All my time is gobbled up by the internet and I hate it! Badminton sometimes, hits my schedule but it is the internet that takes centerstage in my arena of self-enjoyment. I hate the internet!!! It can never compare to the creativity, naturalness and innocence of school childhood games which may have served to keep us all fit when we were young too!!!


I guess I am just feeling nostalgic here and I am just reminiscing days of my tumultous childhood but for now I want to throw this laptop and be rid of the internet for the moment and just play tag and tagu-taguan (hide and seek) and Japanese game and patintero all over again!!!!!

Whenever I'm in the Philippines, I always notice the children playing their games (sometimes in the street or along side the road, or at Luneta, or at the beach). Children can make fun for themselves where ever they may be. I'll try to make time to play with my grandchildren the next time they ask me to play.

Hiya Liisa, well unfortunately the internet has become a necessary evil which grows on you. But looking at it in a positive way, look at the easy access to worldwide information that we now have and the time that we've saved because of it.
Speaking of which, I hope you haven't cut yourself totally from the outside world. I had an invalid e-mail account message when I tried to send you a message. Cheers and best regards to you and your hubby.

Hi Liisa

I hope you still have at least some fond memories of the Internet. It seems to me that the Internet has been good to you, at least some of the time. Just think of what the Internet has done for you and what would not be if you had never used the Internet.
I have enjoyed reading your thoughts on your blog and hope that you continue to use it. If not I will miss you’re thoughts and your blog!:( I know that things change when you are in love, but I think that the people still remain basically the same. I hope the best for you!

I hope that you are OK.
Best Wishes, Ben
