Belated Happy 1st Tweetiversary!

I really had no idea that I’ve been a twitter user for more than a year already. Bigla ko lang syang naisip when I was tweeting with @mr_perk and @paulignatius one morning. The topic was brought up by @mr_perk so I got curious about the date that I began tweeting.

It was March 28, 2009. That was the very first time that I used twitter. And after that, my internet life changed a lot! (wow).

I really can’t remember right now who influenced me to use twitter. It was the hottest new thing that time, I think. So I just joined the bandwagon and tweet away.

Twitter is supposed to be a mini-blog.. where you’ll write the things that are happening to you, using only 140 characters at most. But we used it differently, and I must say we extremely abused it (seriously.. haha kidding!). Well, here are some of the stuff that I usually do using twitter:

join TMR top 10 (mas tipid kesa 2299)

request for songs sa RX (but now, pati sa ibang station.. hehe)

join RX contests

get download links (#odhthepirate)

get updates from celebrities (and tweet them once in a while)

share pictures and other stuff (including TMI moments)

greet everyone a good morning or good night or mwahugs

chat with some of friends

see? Twitter is very useful. And yes, it is entertaining too, and Informative. I actually learned some new words via twitter.. Like tweeple/tweeps, tweetverse, tweetquest, tweethugs, etc.

And last sunday, I saw my tweetmate rodj tweeting about his twitter stats using this very cool websites.. so I checked that out, and i learned a lot of things! So, in celebration of my 1st Tweetiversary, lemme share to you my own tweetistics! 🙂

TweetStats (http://tweetstats.com/graphs/oscardelahopia)

(oh btw, the stats started just last January… yeah, that sucks.. oh well)

as you can see, I tweeted a lot during the month of February… I think because this was the time when @rxtmr started giving away Greenwich GCs.. haha, yeah, maybe that’s the reason behind this stat.

I really tweet a lot during 7am? Haha of course, it’s because of @rxtmr 🙂

oh look at, @mr_perk is topping my stats!! And most of my replies are for RX shows hehe..

* My top five words: na, hehe, lol, sa, thanks.

* Did you know you’ve had 45 twooshes?  What’s a twoosh? Why it’s a 140-character tweet!

* My top five hashtags: #nowplaying, #2, #magnifico, #theamazingrace, #isuboangbataan.

(* and I just added these stuff *)

Getting Bored with AI

Last year, my blog is soooo busy with AI post. It was a fun-tastic season, so many great talents and crazy Paula was still there.

But this season, it is freakin different!

I thought it will be an awesome season too. The top 24 was a talented bunch, Ellen was added as the new judge, and Seacrest is bitchy-er!

But not until the real talents started disappearing. Joe Muñoz was booted out on the first week of elimination night.. It was a surprise.. his rendition of Mraz’ You And I Both was really awesome, that’s why I really didn’t get it why america didn’t vote for him.

Then the contestants started killing the songs, I mean killing in very bad way… Kara is acting weird-er.. and too much pimping on some contestants became very obvious.. you can definitely tell the season is going nowhere.

And I was totally upset when they formed the top 12. Alex Lambert didn’t make it to top 12. SERIOUSLY! That was the worst news I’ve heard that day. That guy is so talented, amazing voice and personality, very down to earth! It was really heartbreaking to see him go…

But I was still hopeful that time.. my other bet, Didi Benami, is still there. Then it was RnB Week. Usher was awesome mentoring the contestants, and his performance during the elimination round is super OMG kick-ass! But the fun was over when Didi was announced to have the least votes.. and the most frustrating part was the stupid judges didn’t use the SAVE for her!!!!!!!

and that’s it! I definitely lost my interest in watching the show.. It’s too depressing.. and I really hate the fact that the judges decided to WASTE the save by using it for Mike. WTF.

I just hope Crystal, who almost quit the show, will stay and win this thing.. Yeah, they’re pimping her out too much.. but it’s okay. She’s talented and she deserves the title.

Good Friday 2010

I’ll admit it.. I’m not the most religious person out there.  I have a lot of sins, I don’t go to church regularly, and I don’t pray that often. BUT, I still have the faith. Of course.

For this holy week, I did the usual thing I always do every year, Staycation! Spend the whole day watching TV and surf the net. They say you should avoid these pleasures.. but.. I really got nothing to do 😦

I actually haven’t tried the Bisita Iglesia thing… but I’m hoping I could try that someday.. I think it’s much ok if you’ll do that with someone, with your family or friends.. and that’s my problem.

So last friday, after eating my breakfast, I found out that I ran out of drugs… medicines, I mean.  And I’m not that sure if there’s an open drugstore out there.  But I still went outside to buy my pills, and I also decided to go to church na rin, since magkalapit na sila. (biglang nagtagalog. Nosebleed haha)

So I went in this place, St. Andrew’s Cathedral.  I prayed solemnly, thanked God for all the blessings, asked for his forgiveness, and tell Him all of my wishes.  It’s really a nice feeling whenever you’re inside the church.  It’s really different.. I really enjoyed my time with God.

Have a blessed holy week!

Blessed Holy Week

I’m really not into Christian or Praise and Worship songs… So I just picked this very beautiful track from Corrinne May.

It talks about being thankful for that person who stays beside you during those hard times, despite the difficulties, despite your countless mistakes.  And there’s no one who will do that for us but Jesus Christ.  He will always forgive our sins and He will forever love us.

So here’s the song from the album Beautiful Seed, On The Side Of Me by Corrinne May.

I’m not the easiest person to love
I’m often the one who lets things go unresolved

Yet you choose to be
On the side of me
On the side of me
Yet you choose to be on the side of me
On the side of me

I’m not too proud of some things
I’ve done in my life
The skeletons in my closet
Are too big for me to hide

Yet you choose to be
On the side of me
On the side of me
Blessed Charity
You’re on the side of me
On the side of me

‘Cause everyone needs a friend to hold
When it’s cold outside
And there’s no place to go
Everyone needs a friend to hold
All alone I cried
There was no place to go
I remember when nobody cared
But you

I’m not the easiest person to love
But you, you’ve opened your heart to show me what I’m worth

‘Cause you choose to be
On the side of me
On the side of me
What a mystery
You’re on the side of me
On the side of me

‘Cause everyone needs a friend to hold
When it’s cold outside
And there’s no place to go
Everyone needs a friend to hold
All alone I cried
There was no place to go

I remember when nobody cared
I remember when nobody cared
Nobody cared
But you…

Yeah you choose to be
On the side of me
On the side of me





Anong petsa na!?
