Random Tidbits: One Tree Hill, Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus, Obama, Jacob vs. Edward, Family, Office Politics and belting it ala Miley.


One Tree Hill

I finally had the time to buckle down and catch up on my One Tree Hill episodes. No matter how much I love Gossip Girl and Ugly Betty, I don’t think I’ve ever been so taken by a show the way that One Tree Hill has taken me. I was so into the whole drama that my younger brother Carl had to make this clever comment, “Ate you haven’t moved since you switched on the DVD. You seriously need a social life”

Gee, thanks Carl.

I really couldn’t protest since my baby brother is sort of like the King of his High School. His cell phone doesn’t stop alerting annoyingly, the landline doesn’t stop ringing, his YM is turned on 24/7 and he’s part of every single club that his school has cooked up.

So no, I couldn’t really argue with that.

Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus

Speaking of my baby brother, Carl, he probably doesn’t want you to know this, but he’s as absorbed as I am in the love lives of the reigning king and queen of the POP world, Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus. Just this morning, we got into a rather fascinating conversation about the latter’s catchy new video, 7 things.

I have no idea but I find it extremely cute that Hannah Montana is trashing her ex-boyfriend through a music video. Isn’t that smart marketing or what?

As a faithful Marketing student, I honestly think that it’s great how their managers or whoever it is that handles these kids make it appear so real. Remember when Britney and Justin were doing the same thing?

We never learn our lessons. We always fall for that marketing trap. Whoever invented it, I salute you. You are sheer genius.

So Nick Jonas, any videos that would be solely dedicated to Miley? But of course, in its true nature, you wouldn’t even admit it. (I guess the fact that he featured his latest GF, Selena Gomez in his new video is enough of a bitchslap. Good Going, Boy)

Marketing Trap or not, I actually enjoy watching these things. So BRING IT. (I just don’t get the fact that these kids are so engrossed in their love lives, how old are they anyway? 12?)


True to the essence of Mccain’s ad, Obama is the biggest celebrity in America, if not the world. However, I don’t think it’s because he’s likened to Paris, Britney or Lindsay. It’s probably because people are curious and you can count me as one of those curious people.

I’ve been following his campaign trail way before he was nominated and I truly believe that this guy can do something with the world and America’s blundering economy.

I think I can relate to him because just like me, he’s young and idealistic and he’s truly trying to make a difference. I think it’s that undaunted passion that’s attracted me to him. You see, a guy can have so many plans and a lot of things he wants to have changed but at the end of the day, it’s more than that. At the end of the day, it all boils down to passion and commitment. And I think he has both.

Thumbs up to his running mate pick! I think he made a good choice and at least he’s humble enough to admit that, well, he doesn’t know everything but with a little help, he’ll get there.

Jacob vs. Edward (Eclipse Teaser so if you haven’t read it yet, move on to the other topics)

I swear if I knew where I can find Bella Swan at this moment, I would totally totally slap her in the face and maybe pull some of her hair out. She’s so unfair and selfish! It’s not possible to love TWO PEOPLE AT THE SAME TIME!

And Edward is such a sweetheart. She actually forgave her for thinking that she’s in love with Jacob (she’s delusional) and thought it was actually her fault. It got me thinking though, I mean there’s always someone who would pick you up once someone else shatters you, and usually it’s the most unexpected person. Do you actually fall for that person because he’s the one that puts you together? Or is that totally unfair because you really don’t feel the same passion and you’re just clinging to the person out of need?

What did I tell you? Selfish. That’s what Bella Swan is. Selfish, selfish, selfish.

I hope the next pages would not disappoint me. Be SMART BELLA!


When did we grow up and start taking care of our families and not the other way around? That’s my only comment on this topic at the moment.

Office Politics

I’m happy with where I am right now because I know that this is where the Lord wills me to be at this point of my life, but really now, why is office politics so dirty? And why do people forget the lessons that they learned in Kindergarten? You know little things like being polite, learning how to say thank you and not ignoring people who make an effort.

It’s ridiculous. Office politics are so crazy and the sad thing is: It’s evident everywhere and everyone participates, even those people you used to think so highly of. They’re all into the crab mentality crap as well. BOO!

And Lastly, it’s my turn to belt it ala MILEY (You know who my Nick Jonas is):

But really if I had a video dedicated to you, I wouldn’t be able to show any thing from you because honestly honey, you never really gave me anything to begin with.

I probably shouldn’t say this
But at times I get so scared
When I think about the previous
Relationship we shared

It was awesome but we lost it
It’s not possible for me, not to care
And now we’re standing in the rain
But nothing’s ever gonna change until you hear, my dear

The 7 things I hate about you
The 7 things I hate about you, oh you
You’re vain, your games, you’re insecure
You love me, you like her
You make me laugh, you make me cry
I don’t know which side to buy
Your friends, they’re jerks
When you act like them, just know it hurts

I wanna be with the one I know
And the 7th thing I hate the most that you do
You make me love you

It’s awkward and it’s silent
As I wait for you to say
What I need to hear now
Your sincere apology
When you mean it, I’ll believe it
If you text it, I’ll delete it
Let’s be clear
Oh I’m not coming back
You’re taking 7 steps here

The 7 things I hate about you
You’re vain, your games, you’re insecure
You love me, you like her
You make me laugh, you make me cry
I don’t know which side to buy

Your friends, they’re jerks
When you act like them, just know it hurts
I wanna be with the one I know
And the 7th thing I hate the most that you do
You make me love you

And compared to all the great things
That would take too long to write
I probably should mention
The 7 that I like

The 7 things I like about you
Your hair, your eyes, your old Levi’s
When we kiss I’m hypnotized
You make me laugh, you make me cry
But I guess that’s both I’ll have to buy
Your hands in mine
When we’re intertwined, everything’s alright
I wanna be with the one I know
And the 7th thing I like most that you do
You make me love you
You do
