Adidas Originals Boston Celtics Hardwood Classics Banner Warmup Jacket.

Acquiring that rare Philippines jacket heightened my taste buds to the (Adidas originals line, particularly the jackets) Since I cant afford one back in college. And once I saw this in's store, I want this one as well. Still thinking though which would I order online, its a toss up between kg's swingman alternate jersey or this. But the jersey is currently not available at the online store, and because its Swingman,its partially screen printed. and being screen printed "Kumukupas sya through time pag nilabhan". While on the other hand this one reeks old school.

One thing though, This jacket will get outdated by the time june comes, as there will be 17 banners hanging at the td banknorth garden.

Hydroxycut Hardcore

Getting down from 240 to 180 lbs required a lot of effort, but I got it done anyway. For some reason, It has been hard to get a normal BMI and trim it down to 160-ish. Normal fat burners given my routine and diet helped me trim down around 14-17 lbs a month so Maybe this one could do a little more.

Adidas TS Lightswitch KG Version

I admit, I'm slowly starting to switch sides from the swoosh to the three stripes, particularly , its trefoil variant. Finally after long years of wait, a black-green variant! this is the first time in a long while that this color scheme has been used in a major line unless you count the player exclusives, the custom IDs and those "greenhills tiangge exclusives" (buti pa mga japeks sa greenhills may black/green colorway). Even KG's Lightspeed came in a very bland black and white scheme. I just hope this gets released locally though since all I've seen so far are the lightspeeds.

A very short wishlist as you can see, no gadgets, auto parts and surprisingly, no toys (o sige na nga "Model Kits" kuno). How times have changed. Priorities and Tastes have changed as well.

Hoping for a hotter Xmas this time around.

Earn your respect or eat your words.

If there was one thing I'd hate about a person it's those who do a lot of talking but cannot back it up. For me, its all about earning your respect, doing it with accomplishments to back up whatever you're saying. You don't act so big if you haven't proven anything. Its all about earning your respect.

These types of people are everywhere where you look. I've seen quite a number back in high school and college and I've seen A lot online, be it through blogs, message boards or whatever. Though bragging is much easier done online where you can hide behind your computer screen, your username or even your alternick. Whenever you screwed up or failed to back up what you're saying there's a little chance that you'd eat your words because lets face it, In your blog, you are a god. Do, say anything you like shut or delete those who doesn't agree with you. That goes well if you're just an ordinary person hiding behind a username? everyone knows you. I have 2 classmates back in college who bragged of how intelligent they are, yet are the only ones from the batch who still hasn't graduated. You can see the public humiliation on their faces. They're just ordinary people. What more if you're a famous one?

But what if you're a well known personality that hiding in any username won't do?

Last September, Gilbert Arenas Talked about revenge when saying the Celts passed up on him as a rookie. Came down yapping that he'll get his revenge and beat them by a margin. I used to have some respect for agent zero for being an underdog (seeing I have a soft spot for underdogs). After being told that he'll make zero points in his college days and being a 2nd round pick, but that can't be seen now as he transformed into the same people who placed him down in his early career. Arrogant, self knowing and tactless to say the least. Heres a guy who sets up his nba live press con while his team is getting beat up in the playoffs. He now acts like Barkley and a WWE heel combined.

So the result? gilbert ate his words. Their team got beat by 20. Got irked by the crowd all day long and set a new nba record, most 3 point attempts without making a single one. They are now 0-2 in the season.

he is now eating his words. Lesson: dont talk so big if you can't back it up.
