[It comprises] all the genres in which someone proclaims himself as the speaker and organizes what he says in the category of the person.”

I’ll sleep already. It’s already 11?!? OMG! I have a 9:40 class tomorrow. Ok, I’ll sleep after I watch the We Got Married episode of Jo Kwon and Gain. They’re so cute!

I must prepare myself for the Thesis Topic Proposal Defense Proposal on friday. Wish us luck, I hope it gets approved. I’ll keep the faith. Pray for us, we need it badly. πŸ™‚ We all want to graduate next June, graduate on time. STRESS, STRESS, STRESS please leave me alone.
