WHAT IF .. (and other thoughts to muse with)

WHAT IF ..

My strict lola granted my mom's wish to study at UP Los Baños. Of course, she would be taking BS Agriculture or BS Food Technology. That would be great for her but the probability of my oblivious existence would be very, very low.

WHAT IF ..

I know how to sing very well. Chances are, I might won an audition to PDA (Pinoy Dream Academy) or I may be seen on ASAP '08. But right now, in my present condition, I consider myself as a RAIN MAKER. Haha. =))

WHAT IF ..

My grandfather was not killed in Indonesia. Life would be easier for my mom's family but the subsistence of my other relatives would be really impossible. I don't need to elaborate this further. SSHHH.

WHAT IF ..

I was born in the eighties and I would be a teenager in the mid 90's. I think, in my personal opinion that 90's is the BEST DECADE for teenagers like me. That would be great. I'm on my mid 20's or more if I was born in the eighties.

WHAT IF ..

I am Albert Einstein. I am very curious about his life, how he analyzes data so hard to formulate millions of theories about quantum mechanics, formulas and derivation in the theory of relativity and so much more. I mean, he's such a great man that influenced the scientific community worldwide. Indeed, he has great analytical skills that others don't possess. It's a natural gift from God, an inimitable talent.

WHAT IF ..

I had a twin sister (YOU WISH KIDDO !!). But that would be great though. Haha.

WHAT IF ..

I didn't pass the UPCAT. Oooh my gulay. That would be one of the greatest disasters of my life. But then again, if I didn't pass the ultimate college entrance exam, that's God's will. Haha. Probably I won't experience the wonderful, stressful and exciting life of an iskolar ng bayan.

WHAT IF ..

We (my family) migrated to Canada or to Los Angeles four years ago. Probably it would be so hard for me to cope with and adapt to the "new" environment.


So much with these useless thoughts. But it's great to imagine these thoughts and I had fun picturing on to its possibilities. Oh yeah. I just love today's weather. It rained, well not so hard but the temperature didn't reach 30. It only reached 27 or less. Weehoh. I just love it.

Oh yeah. Starting on Tuesday, February 26 til February 29, it would be the Senior's final examination (SMAD). Well, I just remembered that during the last day of our final examination (the exam was PHYSICS), we celebrated and partied in the campus and boy, I lost my scientific calculator on that day, crap. I just missed those high school memories. It's the stage of teenage angst, FIRST TIMES (to cheat an examination, to have a serious commitment), a stage to be publicly humiliated by bullies and so much more. I just missed those gremlins. Haha.





NOSTALGIC. TRAGIC. MAGIC. Whatever.

Oh yeah. I just surfed iMeem moments ago and found this wonderful instrumental remix of APOLOGIZE of OneRepublic.


♫It's too late to apologize, IT'S TOO LATE!♫

Whenever I hear that instrumental, I feel like I'm in Euphoria. Ecstatic. Wait, I feel like I'm in an interstellar space convention. Hahaha. =)). Whatever, I just love it.

Oh yeah, I had an informal lesson in Adobe Photoshop and Lilaaii was the teacher. She edited this picture and I was amazed by it.



So what I did was to imitate this style on to my pic. (Hahaha, inggiterro, gaya gaya putomaya!) I thought she used only sponge to desaturate the background, but she taught me the other way around:

►"polygonal lasso. layer via copy. desaturate. voila!"◄

But NEIL also suggested an easier way:

♪or: desaturate everything. history brush the chocolates. haha.♪

These two suggestions helped me in many different ways. Thank you so much NEIL and LYLE! Now, I'm learning cyberart (new word??! buotbuot!).

So yeah, this is the finish product - an application on to what I've learned from Prof. Ramos' (Neil) and Prof. Malubay's (Lyle) online lecture in PHOTO 120 - Principles of Adobe Photoshop. Hahahah lol. =))



I just followed Lyle's more complicated instruction than Neil's. Hahaha.

Oh yeah. Tomorrow's gonna be a national Holiday, the 22nd anniversary of EDSA one. I think a destabilization propaganda may occur tomorrow maybe at the Mendiola Park or in EDSA Shrine. I dunno. Ta-ta.

  35. hi renz! i've done the second procedure which is to use the history brush and so far i'm doing good. but i really would want to learn how to use the polygonal lasso. teach me! hehehe. thanks! :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. hi kim. HAHAHA :)). hahahha. mejo mahirap baya iexplain ang polygonal lasso. basta i right click mo lang siya, then layer as copy. hahhaa. but if everything didn't go on a right way, then proceed to a much easier way. :))

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOL, talaga namang parang naging chatroom tong comment box mo. Haha.

    Congrats sa paggawa niyan! Naaliw din ako sa ganyang technique nung una kong natutunan yan, haha.

    Well, cyberart? I think it's more appropriate to say digital art. But then again, it's not a digital art but a photo manipulation. So whatever. hahaha. :))

    ReplyDelete
  38. kahit anong term jan. basta un na un. though mas appropriate nga ang digital art. HHEEHEHEH :)) SABAW ehhh kaya nangimbento ng kahit anong words. hahhahaha :))
