2008: Year of the Rat

>> Wednesday, December 26

2008 is Year of the Rat (my year since I was born in 1984...That's why I like cheese so much.. hehe). Here are some info I found here and here...

Though the Western rat is reviled as little more than a bottom-dwelling disease carrier, this animal is viewed much differently in the East. The Eastern rat is revered for its quick wits and its ability to accrue and hold on to items of value; rats are considered a symbol of good luck and wealth in both China and Japan. Clever and quick-witted, the Rat of the Chinese Zodiac is utterly disarming to boot. Possessed of excellent taste, this Sign flaunts its style at every turn. Its natural charm and sharp, funny demeanor make it an appealing friend for almost anyone. The Rat likes to know who is on its side and will treat its most loyal friends with an extra measure of protection and generosity.

Behind that sweet smile, though, Rats are keen and unapologetic promoters of their own agendas. This Sign is motivated by its own interests, which often include money; greed can become a problem if the Rat isn't careful to keep its priorities straight. This Sign's natural powers of charm and persuasion can definitely come in handy! Although they are often hoarders, Rats can be very generous to those in their pack, namely friends and family members who have proven their loyalty. Others might perceive them as quick-tempered and sharp-tongued, but never boorish. Verbal jousting is a great pleasure for the Rat, a Sign that everyone around will quickly learn either to love or to hate.

Rats enjoy being on the outside looking in, as the outside affords a view into the inner workings of a system or situation. The Rat's keen mind always seeks out new knowledge, to be stored away for future use. This ever-curious Sign also welcomes challenges as a way to stay sharp. If boredom sets in the Rat is no fun at all, but that isn't likely; this Sign knows how to keep itself entertained.

A valuable lesson for Rats is to learn to consider others above themselves, at least sometimes. If they can develop their sense of self and realize it leaves room for others in their life as well, Rats could find true happiness.

The most compatible match for a Rat is the Dragon or the Monkey.

12 Days of Christmas

>> Saturday, December 22

Ever wonder what's the meaning behind the song "12 Days of Christmas." I found this months ago while browsing through the net out of boredom from work (hehehe shhhhh...). I though I'll just post it here just because its Christmas.. hehe oh and I chose this version of Alvin and the Chipmunks 'cause their so cute and I can't wait to see their movie...

The song goes, "On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…"

The "true love" mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The "me" who receives the presents refers to every baptized person.

1st Day: The partridge in a pear tree is Christ Jesus upon the Cross. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge because she would feign injury to decoy a predator away from her nestlings. She was even willing to die for them. The tree is the symbol of the fall of the human race through the sin of Adam and Eve. It is also the symbol of its redemption by Jesus Christ on the tree of the Cross.


2nd Day: The "two turtle doves" refers to the Old and New Testaments.


3rd Day: The "three French hens" stand for faith, hope and love — the three gifts of the Spirit that abide (1 Corinthians 13).

4th Day: The "four calling birds" refers to the four evangelists who wrote the Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John—which sing the song of salvation through Jesus Christ.

5th Day: The "five golden rings" represents the first five books of the Bible, also called the Jewish Torah: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.


6th Day: The "six geese a-laying" is the six days of creation.

7th Day: The "seven swans a-swimming" refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord.


8th Day: The "eight maids a milking " reminded children of the eight beatitudes listed in the Sermon on the Mount.

9th Day: The "nine ladies dancing" were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.

10th Day: The "ten lords a-leaping" represents the Ten Commandments.


11th Day: The "eleven pipers piping" refers to the eleven faithful apostles.


12th Day: The "twelve drummers drumming" were the twelve points of belief expressed in the Apostles’ Creed: belief in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, made man, crucified, died and arose on the third day, that he sits at the right hand of the father and will come again, the resurrection of the dead and life everlasting.

We celebrate Christmas not only for the gifts, the food, and all the merry-making with our families and friends, we celebrate Christmas to remind us of Jesus and his teachings and all the blessing we recieved from God all throughout the year and the years to come. :) Merry Christmas everyone!!

How Do I Fall In Love

(Jose Mari Chan)

How do you fall in love?
And when do you say I do?
And when is the perfect time?
To spend the rest of your life

Seasons may come and go
And sometimes it rains and snows
There will be highs and lows
So only you will know

You never know just where it will find you
It can come only so fast
It seems like it takes forever
When you want it so bad
But don't ever take it for granted'cause it's more than sowing some seeds
It takes sun and water
So give it what it needs

And that's how you fall in love
That's when you say I do
That's when you know it's time
To spend the rest of your life

Now seasons may come and go
And sometimes it rains and snows
There will be highs and lows
So only you will know
There will be highs and lows
So only you will know...

Here's some few facts about women...

Fine - This is a word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five mins - If she is getting dressed, this means half an hour. In our language when women say "padulong" (on my way), this usually means I'm still getting dressed you have to wait more. For some, this would mean I have to take a bath first, then get dressed,.. blah blah blah.. then you have to wait for at least an hour.

Nothing - This is the calm before the storm. It means SOMETHING, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with NOTHING usually end in FINE. Expect for the worst. hehe

Go ahead (or "ikaw gud") - This is a dare! NOT a permission. Don't do it! And I mean don't. Women just say this so that it would seem we are not manipulating you. But in fact, we are. You just don't know it. :) If you still insist on doing your thing, then expect a silent treatment from us.

Loud sigh - This means she thinks you're and idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time arguing with you about NOTHING. Guys just can't you take a hint.

That's ok - This means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistakes.. hehehehe

Ok so guys, you better know how to read a woman's hints...


Perfect Christmas

A Perfect Christmas
By Jose Mari Chan

My idea of a perfect Christmas
Is to spend it with you
In a party
Or dinner for two
Anywhere would do
Celebrating the yuletide season
Always lights up our lives
Simple pleasures are made special too
When their shared with you

Looking through some old photographs
Faces of friends we'll always remember
Watching busy shoppers rushing about
In the cool breeze of December
Sparkling lights, all over town
Children's carols in the air
By the Christmas tree
A shower of stardust on your hair

I cant think of a better Christmas
Than my wish coming true
And my wish is you'd let me spend my whole life with you

My idea of a perfect Christmas is to spend it with you

hehehe...Im in a Christmassy mood....


My superpower

Have you ever wished you have superpowers? Watching movies like X-men, Spiderman, and my recent fav, Heroes, I always wish I have superhuman abilities like them. So I could do my own thing, my way, my time. I'm a bit selfish am I? But I'm pretty sure I'm not the only selfish slightly wicked person in the world who wishes she have powers. Dba?! Dba?! Dba?! :) (shoutout to lurch: don't tell me for once in your life you wished you can control the world...hehehe us and our evil plans of ruling the world).

Me? I'd like my power to be like that of Matt Parkman (Heroes) and that of Professor X — to read and control minds. Nyahahhahah.. So I could hear people's thoughts and tell them what to do. And I could tell all the people I hate to go kill themselves. Bwahahahhahahaha Ok so I'm a control freak. That's me. Maybe I should not have powers. Who knows what I'll do if I have them... hehehhe

So what would be your power?


a feeling...

>> Sunday, December 9

Do you sometimes feel like your just being used? Like your "friends" are just their just because you can offer them something... and when the time comes that you don't have something to offer they just leave you there...

Hmph.. so much for friendship... *sigh*


my ticket out

>> Tuesday, December 4

I did it! I passed my golden ticket out of this prison, December 3. Now I'm counting my days here... hmmm.. 29 days to go and counting...


Would you believe it?! My ticket was returned because I failed to explain my reasons why I'm getting out of here. I mean WTF?! Do I need to explain why?! Are they that blind?! This place is HORRIBLE! Ila pa jud daginuton ug palisod ng pag-resign?! Whaaat da F*$# is wrong with these people?! Mindless retards!

As what Wiki says “Many people turn to comfort food for familiarity, emotional security, or special reward.” I'd say my comfort food would be my best friend, my first love... hehehe could you ever turn away from this?

stupid idiots

>> Thursday, November 15

I just got my first award... (yipee for me...HA!), for not rendering overtime last Sunday! I mean WTF?! First, they transferred four of us to another project saying there is an excess of CEDs in ES, now they're asking, no REQUIRING, ES CEDs to render OT 4 hours every day.. Where the hell is the logic behind that?!!

Are they LIARS or just plain DUMB STUPID IDIOTS?!!


Forgive Me (by Evanescene)

>> Saturday, November 10

Can you forgive me again?
I don't know what I said
But I didn't mean to hurt you

I heard the words come out
I thought that I would die
It hurts so much to hurt you

Then you look at me
You're not shouting anymore
You're silently broken

I'd give anything now
to kill those words for you

Each time I say something I regret, I cry "I don't wanna lose you!"
But some how I know that you will never leave me, yeah.

'Cause you were made for me
Some how I'll make you see
How happy you make me

I can't live this life
Without you by my side
I need you to survive

So stay with me
You look in my eyes and I'm screaming inside that I'm sorry..

And you forgive me again
You're my one true friend
And I never meant to hurt you

"A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops."
~ General of the Armies John J. Pershing


Counting my days...

>> Wednesday, November 7

I can hardly wait for my last day in prison. I have my reasons for breaking out. As to what those reasons are...? Ok if you're curious why maybe I can say some of those things here...

(1) It seems my health is starting to deteriorate. If I continue to stay here, basi decaying na nya ko... hehehheeh pero that's really one of my reasons why.

(2) The fact that I already told the "key persons" that I'm going out this December would really finalize my decision that I really HAVE to go. For some reasons (I suspect pure SABOTAGE), we were transferred to another project. Reasons that are unreasonable. Some people would simply abuse their power to get rid of teammates who are beyond their control, who question their decisions, who stand up for their beliefs. I mean what kind of a leader is that? The one who said, and I quote “Why would I back up an incompetent staff? That would only show that I am incompetent as well.” What a simple minded fool. I'd like to stab her with a spoon over and over again.

(3) Which would bring me to my third reason: the situation among us "prisoners". Don' get me wrong. I like what I'm doing, but to stay on a place where you would just be bled to death working your ass off. It's like staying in Azkaban, where your happiness and your sanity are being sucked out by hungry dementors. This is the kind of place where one is persecuted if you question the decision of authority. A milder version of dictatorship. It's a do-this-or-die kind of life here. I've had enough. I'm taking myself and what's left of my sanity out of this hellhouse.

(4) This place is CHEAP. Need I say more? My fellow inmates would know why. Simply cheap.

(5) I think I found my other path. Though it is still unclear, I'd rather stake my life finding out than give my life to this prison.

I've made up my mind. Nothing and no one can stop me from breaking free... yeah I'm breaking free (sings)...


Sweet choices?!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Ok so I'm a business graduate, but cutting costs to the point selling "old" "recycled" rice WITH ANTS is just sooooooo BAD... downright vicious... to think our canteen concessionaire is the owner of Sweet Choices... Sweet choices my ass... Why dont you call yourself CHEAP DIRTY CHOICES...


Say what?!

>> Saturday, October 27

A certain "circumstance" just slammed right into our faces this morning at work... It brought an uproar among us inmates, it brought us to tears. It really feels like prison (really like a hellhouse). Life here is do this or die. They say their people is important to them, then what is this bull$&# about not being able to have a choice.

Are they really asking for it?! The time when there will be an uprising among inmates. I'd be proud to stand infront and shout JUSTICE! Pero.. I can dream can I? I doubt if it would really come to that. Some are just chicken...plain CHICKEN.. pa goody-goody ba.. those KISS-AS people. Somehow complaining but never really doing something...anything.

Before I break out, I wish I could do something to those left behind. Times like this I wish I have superpowers and kick the butts of all those who wronged us.. GO SUPER-EHN!

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do NOTHING."


going out of the hellhouse...

...after months and months of thinking and trying to figure things out... I've finally decided...


I'll explain things later....I'm counting my days.. tralalalalalla


>> Monday, September 3

free gadgets daw...


chance or choice?

>> Monday, August 20

When you meet the right person to love, in the right place, at the right time... that's a CHANCE.
When you meet someone you're attracted to, that's a CHANCE too.

Being caught that there are many people out there who are more attractive, smarter, and richer than your mate and yet you decide to love your mate just the same, that's a CHOICE.

Attraction comes to us by chance. But true love that lasts is truly a CHOICE.

Fate brings two people together, but it's still up to you two to make it happen. We may meet someone by CHANCE, but loving and staying with that someone is still a CHOICE.

*got this from a text message from Ellen... :)


going back to HELLHOUSE

>> Sunday, August 19

I've have been away from work for 5 days and I FEEL GREAT! It's not like I would miss anything from work, except probably all those blah blah blahs mandrake (that's what I'm calling that no-good piece of ****; mind my language)... life at work is so full of $#&* these days.. I've been very happy these 5 days I've been away from that hellhouse, who cares if I wont be able to get enough pay... HA! I think hell is much better than that place.

Anywayz, I'm going back this Tuesday... how I wish that day won't ever come.. but reality check... I have to go back... and face those sorry-excuse-for-a-hehehehe... go figure...


writing again...

>> Monday, August 6

I started writing again (that is writing in my journal)... it seems I write when I'm angry at something. It's the only, should I say, "outlet" for all my frustrations in life. I think it's much better to blah blah everything in a piece of paper, than shout it all out to a person. hehehe I've learned my lesson... a paper doesn't shout back at you..

For now I'll save this blog from all my nonsense blahblahs in life, you might think I'm a crazy person.. wait I am..


wala ra pud

>> Wednesday, August 1

Current status: sniffing, sneezing, head pounding... totally stressed and wanting to drop dead.

Haaaayyyy, this is me at this very minute... I'm not going to start rambling again about how my life sucks, how tired i am with my job, how i hate the world... oh well what's new?! It's not like I've done much lately. Still the same boring old routine day in day out.

....ok I'm stuck. I just don't know what to say at this moment. I'm tired and I wanna go to sleep. So.. gudnyt world...


Di ka ma tats ana?!

>> Monday, July 23

Ug sa dihang nalingaw naman ko ug himo aning blog nga bisaya. Maayo man pud nga gamiton nato ang atong kaugalingon nga dayalek. Maglisod baya pud ko gamay, pero makalingaw man, muo na padayon sa ko aning bisaya posts nako. Dili ra ko maghimo ug la-in nga blogsite kay kapuyan nako. ako ra isagol dire sa akong balay ang iningles ug binisaya. O di ka ma tats ana?!

Ang akong higala nga si lurtsil ang nakaingon nga nakasugod ko ani nga blog. Abi man nako nga wala ra gihapon ko mabutang kay mabalaw ra man gud ko dayon. Pero patsada man diay ning naa kay blog. Magbuot2x ra ka unsa imo isulti ug ibutang. Keber na ka anang ubang tawo. Nangigi man pud ko sa bisaya blog nila alaine ug ni lurtsil gud mao ning nagbinisaya napud ko. hehehe


Bagolbolg sa usa ka copyeditor sa SPI

Unsa may angay nga buhaton sa mga tawong mudawat ra ug limpyo? Sa mga tawong dili kahibalo muhunahuna sa uban? Sa mga tawo nga wala gud lamay maski gamay nalaman gud nga konsensya?

(A) patiran
(B) sumbagon
(C) bunalan
(D) sunugon
(E) dunggabon
(F) kana tanan..

Unsa akong buhaton? Una sumbagon, dayon patidpatiran, dayon bunalan ug tubo hantod muyatyat na ning bukog, dayon dunggabon, dayon sunugon nako. O diba la-in?!

In-ani gyud ko ka bayolente kung mangisog na jud ko kaayo. Mura ba ug di na ko kaila ug tawo. Ahay. Makalagot man gud hunahunaon nga bali na nimo paningkamot dayon, tapaktapakan ra ka sa imong mga kauban. Asa naman ng ilang gi-ingon nga "teamwork"? Kanang magsige ra ug salig nga imo ra nang trabahon kay wala namay la-in.

Sige na laman ko ug dawat anang mga trabahong lisod. Ok ra man nako nang mudawat ko ana, pero di pud dagway angay na kanunay na laman ako magtrabaho ana. Abi kay paspas ko? Ah manti-aw pud ron oi. Unya kung mupahawa na ko diri, kinsa man ang mu pulot ana nga trabaho? Diha namo mapugos. Pastilan! Bali pud ng maabot na ta ana nga sitwasyon.

Bali pud ning trabaho-a ni. Oo, ganahan ko sa akong trabaho (mu biya pud ni naghatag ug kwarta para makapalit ko sa akong mga palaliton), pero bali ra pud ning mga tawo dire oi. Abi man nako ug edukado ni sila, mga tigulang naman unta, nakatrabaho napud sauna, pero muo man nuon ang magsige binata.

Manti-aw pud ning kinabuhi sa? Dili gyud kanunay mahitabo ang unsa imo gusto. Hahaay... wa namn gud ko la-ing mabuhat gawas aning magbagolbol ug mu balos pud panalgsa. hehehehe diba dili mn pud maayo anang mgsige ra ka pa tapak anang uban. Mubalos pud ta panalagsa! Tawo ra biya ta. DBA?!

Murag pariha man mi ug bagolbol ni lurtsil. Siya ra pud akong gi-ingnan ani akong mga bagolbol. Pero karon nga ako na ning gibutang dire sa akong blog, kabalo na mo. Dire sa kutob akong mga bagolbol. Sa sunod napud. Mubalik sa ko trabaho... hehe


sleepless night

"If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep."
-Dale Carnegie

I didn't sleep a wink last night. I've gotten into an argument with someone, then it became into a fight. I just bawled my eyes out the entire night, not because we were fighting, but because I was wrong. Stubborn as I am, I always believe I'm right. It took a lot of guts to finally accept that I was wrong. *poof* There goes my pride.



im bored... here i am, waiting for 10 o'clock to come and wohoo i can finally sleep... it has been a looong day... 10 o'clock seems so far far away pa... haaay... buhay spi... can it be more boring than this? we're just wasting our time (not to mention company money) surfing the net, blogging, friendster, sillimanians.com, blah blah blah... WALA MI FILES! we were hoping for this time to come, but now it has...hmmm.. seems such a waste of time.

all i can hear is the tapping of keyboards, the constant humm of the air-conditioning, a few laughs and murmurs here and there, someone yawning. heheh people are bored. mu ra na akong ma say... people are just plain B-O-R-E-D... oh can i add, people are getting sick too... my officemates are starting to cough and sneeze, sniffles here and there, people are now starting to sound... nasal? is that the right word?... we're not only bored... we're getting sick... come to think of it, my head is starting to throb too...

it's only a matter of time when i'll cough and sneeze and sound nasal too... with this place we're working in... HA! One day isa ra ang sip-onon, the next day the whole production will get sick too...

im rambling... hehe wla lang.. just wanting to blah blah some useless stuff today... im bored...

Friday-the-13th scare

>> Friday, July 13

I was about to flush the toilet when the room suddenly spinned and I heard strange noises (like a big truck just smashed into the building). I quickly went out of the CR so I could take a sit (I might suddenly passed out again). I was shocked to see my officemates standing and ready to sprint out of the building. Then suddenly the building shook again. Oh my God! It's an earthquake! And here I thought I was just getting dizzy again.

We went out of the building and started texting our friends and family to see if they're ok. Thank God nobody got hurt. We were apprehensive of going back inside for fear of another earthquake. But people just went inside like nothing happened, so we have no choice but to go back inside too. Nobody seemed to inspect the building if it was safe to go back to; so much for the "employees' health and safety." This company sucks big time!

(FYI: The first was 4.4 and the second was 5.0)

That was quite a scare... to think it's Friday the 13th...

Prison vs Work

>> Monday, July 2

IN PRISON - you spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell.

the golden ticket

It's not a ticket to a chocolate factory, but i guess it's a ticket to a sweeter life, free from the prison camp we're into.. day in.. day out. It's what E.M.A. and I jokingly call "The Sobre" (envelope). We can make one for ourselves, but it's the words and the time (especially the time) that are difficult, not to mention the courage to make one.

E.M.A. just gave his golden ticket... and now he's counting his days here in prison camp. People keep asking me if I'm making one myself. I still lack to courage to do so...I still have so many things to consider: persons who are counting on me, my health, my happiness, my will to let go...blah blah blah

wanna bag of nips

>> Wednesday, May 23

This song just came into my head.. i donnu y... hehhe

Wanna see what happens in a bag of Nips?
What goes on before they touch my lips?
They make a rainbow... (Chololate Nips)
A choco rainbow... (Chocolate Nips)
And then they color all the flowers and they paint the trees
So sweet and delicious look at all those bees
When I want fun I get a bag of Nips and make a rainbow!
Nips... Nips!

Around Cebu in two days

It's Saturday and we're off to Cebu in a fastcraft from Tampi to Bato around 7:40 in the morning. With only a glass of oatmeal for breakfast I was still a bit nervous of the trip. I might get sick or what (since I'm still not used to travelling a lot) but I have E.M.A. with me so what the heck, I brave the idea of going to Cebu in a bus.

After about 4 long hours sitting in a bus with my head about to explode and praying to God to spare me the agony of throwing up in front of many people, the sign "Welcome to Cebu City" was a sight to see.

We spent the whole afternoon at Ayala and SM, stuffing our faces with every food we can get our hands on, from Dimsum Break (lunch) to Max's Fried Chicken (dinner) with sweets here and there in between.. hmmm... just thinking of it makes me yearn to go back there. teehee...

Sunday morning, we had to wake up a bit early again for our trip to Kawasan (in Badian, try looking at the map..). It's another 3.5-hour travel back southwest of Cebu. We took the Librando bus (as adviced by Orven 'cause it would take us directly to the place) not knowing it would make a stop-over somwhere, so we had to wait for a couple of minutes. Finally we went on with the trip. Trying to take my mind of the long bus ride, I took a nap confident that E.M.A. wont doze off too. So after about 120 km of bumps and a freakin' headache, we finally reached Kawasan.. whew.. what a relief..

E.M.A. and I decided to walk to the falls since they said it's just a "walking distance." To my dismay, it's absolutely not [sighs]. It's a long walk to the falls, not to mention the slippery road and the back-breaking, thigh-aching climb up towards the second falls (the first one is already full of bakasyonistas). Finally, we arrived. The familiar faces of Marlon and the others were so relieving to see.

The water was so cool and refreshing. Swimming is definitely a must in Kawasan. The place is great, the food was delicious (thanks to Mia), and the company is fun. All the aches and pains and bumps along the way were all worth this.

Way Back Into Love

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end
oh, oh, oh

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end
oh, oh, oh


The Seven Deadly Sins

>> Thursday, May 17

"Vanity is an excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise."

..Or if you prefer: Pride - Mother of all sins. First one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

- Vanity is linked with the color violet.
- Peacocks are symbols of vanity as well, therefore peacock feather is used as an inspiration for the "frame".
- Background is being desertish (plus the dead tree)... Vain people usually never see any beauty in the world, but only in themselves... That is why everything around them, sooner or later, dies.

"Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, orsituation."

Envy means much more than just a wish to have something someone else has. It means also ACTING AGAINST that person,"revenging" in a way, trying to take the "object of our desire" away fromthem, or backstabbing them in some way etc. that is why it can also be the deadliestsymbolism:
- snake is connected with cunning and doingsomething behind one's back
- poison ivy leaf in the frame (and the column)- maybe just a word play.

"Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body."
The theme: As you can see, from my Lust sketch I have only kept the pose, but totally changed the face. I think that this one fits the topic better.
I see Lust as being concentrated on yourself, being "drowned in your own world" kind of way, rather than seducting and being "flirty" (and this look was used in the sketch)
About the symbolism:Lust is connected with blue, but it's too "cold", and therefore changed to red - connection with the color of flame, warmth. Although not connected with love.
The frame - uses the flame pattern... flame -> burning desire -> lust
The waterfall - something rapid, unpredictable, not controlable.

"Greed, also called Avarice or Covetousness, is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual."

"Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work"

This is the fifth from the Seven Deadly Sins series.


- She is sitting on a swing and blowing bubbles: it's a symbol of wasting your time on insignificant things; idleness

- She is placed above the ground, in the sky: symbol of being separated from Earth and mundane htings (like work etc)

- Feathers: they symbolize something sleepy and lazy

- Color: light blue is also a color of sleepiness and idleness

"Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires."

Character is aesthetic, pretty and (in her way) attractive.

Some symbolic explanations:
Abundance of textiles - this sin not only as eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things etc
Grapes - "luxury" goods, connected with lavish parties (in ancient times) etc
The pink colour theme - grapes, sweets etc

Wrath - Inappropriate feelings of hatred and anger. (...) Impatience with the law, or seeking revenge outside of justice, such as with unnecessary vigilantism. Wishing to do evil or harm to others."

The colour theme - the colours red, orange, black ->fire -> destruction
Lightning (in the frame and background)- something destructive, rapid, uncontrollable
The hairstyle - another reference to fire
The make-up - a reference to battle marks (face painting etc)
The feathers - ("sharp" rather than soft and fluffy); in this form they bare a resemblance to tribes -> Wrath seen as something wild and primal.
The whip she is holding - a symbol of power
The shattered earth - the influence Wrath has on the world.
