We are going to talk about the Tagalog (native language in the Philippines) definition of Torpe.

According to (apparently, Wikipedia also has this kind of stuff, I didn’t know).


torpe (adj)

  1. The quality of being too shy to pursue amorous desires

Now, I’m not sure if we still use this to describe a person who wants, likes, and/or loves someone. At least, that’s what I think, being a straightforward asshole. But I have to admit, I would always feel like this whenever I see someone I like. Then i shrug it off after a couple of seconds, because that how I roll. (Not really)

So to keep it short & simple, every single time I see my crush at work, I get on with a 5 second freeze, then get back to work. Some of you might say that that’s an exact sign of being torpe. I have to agree at some point, but to defend myself, I’m a work-first-hook-up-later kind of guy. That’s just me being professional. What sucks though, is we don’t really talk to each other. Unless she’s up in front presenting something, then I would throw-in a couple of questions & jokes just to get her attention. Right.

So my point is, it’s okay if you are a torpe because at least you have the decency to be shy every once in a while. Not to mention, you don’t really have anything to lose if you don’t make a move. But then again, you don’t have anything to gain either.

Hmmm. I guess I have to buy a video camera just so I could ask some ladies about this kind of stuff. I’d like to record their opinions and preferences. Because let’s face it. Some guys just don’t know how to do things by themselves. Let’s be honest, shall we?

If you’re too shy to make a move, shrug it off. If it doesn’t work, scout for a bit. NOT STALK. Get to know her indirectly, ala Scott Pilgrim scouting for info about Ramona Flowers. Do it now. Then maybe you could approach her/him later on. That’ll make it easier for you to start a conversation. But please, don’t, and I MEAN DON’T, blurt out that you know a lot about her/him. That’ll make you look like a creep.

^ That’s a pretty funny kind of creep. But still.

Don’t make me rub it into your face.


Disney girls are into LESBIAN relationships now, eh?



Yeah. That’s a virtual slap. Redemption, anyone?



Her Preferences

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. And quite frankly, it is a legitimate topic. Not to mention, a mind-boggling issue worthy of a debate. So let’s see if your arguments are valid.

My guess is, it wouldn't be as valid as this.

So here’s the topic.

Women who prefer dating guys with thick wallets rather than quality guys.

This is a really old topic, which I just thought would be fun to talk about nowadays. I have to be honest, I think I broke up with 2 girls because I thought my wallet’s not thick enough, so to speak.

Let’s be honest here. This is a legitimate fear of guys. Women who they date don’t say straight up that they only did that because they’re rich. Guys who fear that women are after their money are douche-bags. Women who date guys for their money are gold-diggers.

Why can’t we all just love each other just because?

Is the economy that bad nowadays? Sorry. But I can’t help but ask.

It upsets me.


That Awkward Moment EP. 2

That awkward moment when you realized that the chick you just added on Facebook is a sister of a friend of yours. You’re bros. Technically.

Okay, I’mma post this real quick ‘coz I’m running out of time.

About that specific awkward moment. I’m a HUGE follower of the Bro Code made by Sir Barnabas Stinson.

The Father of Awesomeness.

Not only that, somewhere in the Bro Code, was a specific rule made for the specific situation.

And it is as follows:

A bro shall not sleep with another bro’s sister. However, a bro shall not get angry if another bro says “Dude, your sister’s hot!!”.

Corollary, it is probably better for everyone if bros just hide pictures of their sisters when other bros are coming over. When in doubt refer to the check list for bro-proofing your home.

Okay. So you get that right? Click this for the check list for bro-proofing your home.

Anyway, it was never written there about dating the sister. But sure. Let’s assume that there’s gonna be sex involved. Respect, right? We can’t just do this casually because we’re all bros by principle. Let’s not forget though that some bros just don’t mesh with other bros.

So yes.




A Bit of Reminiscing

About a year ago, I left work because of this girl. That’s just one of the reasons why I left work, so please, don’t sue me. I have lots of reasons, actually. Now, in 5 days, I’ll be working again. And hopefully, not going to leave it because one reason would involve a girl.

Ha. I just got back from the mountains with a few of my closest friends. Holy shit. Lots of awesome stuff happened, and we’re so happy that we were able to keep the tradition alive even if only a few of us were able to come with. We had too much food, and too much liquor. Yeah. THAT’S A LOT CONSIDERING THAT I’M THE ONE WHO SAID THIS.

Ah yes. That time capsule 3-4 years ago from the 3rd outing? It was there. It’s a mystery though. You’d have to get us drunk before we could even say shit about it. Hahahahaha. Great thing about the hike was the hike itself. I don’t have any recollection of the hike being so goddamn tiring. What the hell happened to us?!

Anyway. This shit is about reminiscing so let’s get into it.

I opened my old social network accounts out of boredom my drowsiness (that doesn’t include Friendster, because I forgot that shit 4 years ago). I mean, wow. I said a lot of things I meant back then, and still, I’m the one who got the bad end of it. What’s wrong with being honest? Seriously?

Earlier, I told you about a girl. I accidentally thought of her while drinking with my friends. I kind of miss her. Just to be friends with her again would be nice. Yeah, I said that. I can be friendly at times. And forgiving.

Actually, I have nothing else to say anymore. This is such a dramatic post, considering that I don’t normally rant about my emotions. I don’t tell people in my blog that I miss them. Unless I meant it. So yeah.

Fuck. Wait. I have to pee in a cup again. I’ll flame around online later.

Pee or Orange Juice? You decide.



April Fools

So I get to blog about April Fools. Kind of a boring topic, really. I haven’t done any pranks yet (nothing too explosive, to say the least). I’ve been too busy preparing for work, so I haven’t been blogging as much as I want to.

Twitter helps me kill boredom more than Facebook, nowadays. Since on Facebook, I get to talk to my closest friends. While on Twitter… let’s just say it’s a legal & friendly way to stalk people. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

Actually, that’s not even funny.

I’m just writing this out of the fact that I have to kill time. I have to go and have a medical check-up in a few hours, which is ironic, since I like having my blood tested, but I hate not having to eat breakfast because of that. Yeah. I like to eat. SUE ME.

I wonder what will happen tomorrow. I’ll be going up in the mountains again with a bunch of my friends. It’s a shame that only a few of us will be able to go. I just hope that’s not an April Fool’s prank. Or I’ll be kicking their freakin’ asses to the curb. But anyway, I’ll be posting some mean photos for sure. That’ll make them green with envy.

Speaking of Envy…

And because of that, I shall declare that I STILL have a crush on Brie Larson.

Even if this was made waaaay back 2005. She changed a lot. And it was awesome.
