It is yet, a new year again! Hey there! How do you guys do? It’s been a long time since I was last here. Oh God I missed writing and documenting eventful happenings in my life. The last half of last year was much of a blur and quite a few unfortunate events have occurred but hey, that’s life right? Anyway, I’ve had plans on putting up a few posts just so I could summarize all the crazy things that happened the past year (including Gehtua’s SHS pageant!! Which is still on the drafts section by the way huhuhu) but I was so lazy!!!!! And for some reason, I can’t find the perfect words to put it altogether. I tried, though. But every time I read the whole thing I made– I was just completely unsatisfied. So I thought that maybe I should just leave it all at that– but I’m still hoping to put up the SHS pageant post!! #proudsis
Anyway, Day 16 in 2017– everything is pretty rough but somehow still good. In fact, last Sunday, my friends and I had our very first adventure for the year! We went to the Color Manila Run Year 5! IT WAS SUCH AN EXPERIENCE. IT WAS SOOOOO MUCH FUN. Here’s a fun fact: I am one of the most taong bahay person that anyone would ever know. I always prefer to stay inside the house and do absolutely nothing fun than go out and make some unforgettable memories. That is true. For the longest time (ever since I was a kid, I guess), I was not one to always initiate “gala” with my friends. This is gonna sound off but I wasn’t really that comfortable going out with friends. Lakwatsera ako when I was a kid– up until now but only if I was with my family. I don’t know. For some reason I was always like that. I was always scared/afraid/terrified/nervous when I’m out and not with any family member. I always thought that they might scold me for not being at home yet (#CertifiedTaongBahayForLife). But, eh things change don’t they? When I went to college, that was when I realized that I should put myself out there and make some memories. Actually, it was just until lately that I became comfortable when going out with with friends. Now, I can be out with my friends and be worry free. I’m just glad that I finally went out of my comfort zone so…Thank you friends!!!
Going back, last Sunday (January 8) was very fun. But at first, most of us were still sleepy. Imagine 4am assembly time??? I was there at around 5:15 am (was dropped off by Papa) and I went with Jc & Manaois because Mae and friends weren’t there yet. At around 6:30 we were all there and we ran on the last wave of 5k. There were really a lot of people!!! I CAN’T EVEN. It was my first time to participate in such a fun run like that. As far as I can remember, my family and I joined a fun run 6 or 7 years ago but I can’t vividly remember how that really went. Again, there were really A LOT of people. To the point that you really can’t “””run”” at first because it was really crowded. Most of us were just walking at the beginning (or in my case, still walking until the end). Then we ran for a few seconds pero hingal na agad, bes. (HAHHAHA) After that, we saw water splashing all over the place. And we thought, “wait, Hydro Manila ba ito? Chos.” We were somehow nervous because we had our phones with us. (“pano kung mabasa? tapos biglang ayaw na magopen? hala.” we were saying things like that) But as Mae have said it, “Okay lang yan, bes. YOLO.” …and so we did. Fortunately, our phones were still functioning well despite the water. Fast forward, we already went by the first inflatable arch that they had. (as you go by each arch, that’s the only time they throw color dusts on you). The first color that we got was purple. It was funny because by the time we got there, they were already running out of color dusts. We kind of had high hopes for the first color because it is THE FIRST ONE but rather it was….. meh. We barely had any color dusts thrown on us. But since color dusts were all over the place (especially on the floor– as in the road was purple) we decided why not just get color dusts from the floor and throw it on to ourselves? I mean why the hell not? We wanted to make the moment count and have as much fun as possible so no choice but sariling sikap! And we indeed had fun. Manaois even laid down the purple road as if he were on his bed, hahaha!
Hello, guys! How you doin’? *insert Joey’s voice from FRIENDS* How have you guys been? How’s vacation so far? Nakapag beach na ba? O staycation lang sa bahay? Whatever it may be, I hope you’re doing okay! Sobrang init talaga, no?!?!?! (lol, perpetual conversation starter) I swear I don’t know if I’m in Manila or Satan’s sweaty armpit. Ya feel me? I know you do. Anyway, given the extreme heat this summer, if you have nothing important to do outside I suggest you just stay inside the house. Buksan nalang ang aircon/electric fan to the highest level (at matulog), ganoin! Haha! And oh, drink lots and lots of water! Mahirap na baka ma-heat stroke or what… lol #GettyCares (naks). Okay, so everyone is just beginning their summer and I just started going to school again. Wow. Ok. So….
School (again) has officially started! I always have this love-hate relationship with the first day/week of the term. I love the fact na medyo “chill” pa because it is still the first week. But on the other hand, I hate it for the reason that most profs don’t show up!! (yep, like always. every term, walang mintis!) It’s a first-day-of-school- kind of thing. I also hate it that I still get nervous. I don’t even know why. Considering that it’s the “first day of school” every 3 months on my case. Ewan ko ba, seeing a sea of people lined up on cashiers/registrars trying to pay their fees, trying to walk in on class without knowing anyone, all the unfamiliar faces, bleak stares, introducing yourself in front of the class, meeting your professors for the first and everything else in between, gives me nothing but S T R E S S. I still get random anxiety attacks though I’ve been studying for 13 years already. Nothing compares to the unavoidable back-to-school tension. Anyway, the title of this post says it all. I am (unfortunately) all by myself for the last term of the school year. (#sad #loner). I don’t have any of my close friends as my classmates this term…. hay. Darn you, Mapua for giving out such shitty schedules and limited slots!!! *beastmode*. But to look at things in a more positive way, I guess this is somehow good. At least I’d exert extra effort on my classes because I have no one to depend on. Naks, Miss Independent! As to my professors… fortunately they’re all okay! I mean GREAT. They’re all great! 🙂 (tyG!) How about my classmates? Uh, let me put it this way…… I guess it’s too early to tell? But I met someone from my calculus class, I can’t remember his name but……. I think I’m gonna hate him for the next three months. Alam nyo yung typical na pa-pogi/pa-cool na guy na SOBRANG YABANG? Yep, he’s one of those. I know that it’s clearly none of my business but…… UGH. Okay, tama na. But aside from that guy, they’re all good and I think I can make it through all my classes this term. Except…. I miss Julian 😦 We were together 6 times a week before. I’ve been with him everyday for the last three months and I don’t know how to survive without him anymore. Ang oa pero true. (brb crying)
This post is kind of long overdue and (gladly) boredom compelled me to compose this entry. I’m not really sure if there’s much to say but I’ll try to squeeze it here. If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been with Erika and Julian for the last 3 terms. We’ve spent a lot of time together on food dates that I’ve already lost count. Anyway, last March 30 we spent our last date for the term together (Last Supper ba ito? lol). The original plan was to eat Chinese food. We were planning to go to Binondo and find good chinese restaurants there but since I have to go home asap (because it’s my brother’s graduation) we decided to eat at a place nearby instead. We ate at this Italian restaurant at SM Manila.
They offered a promo that consists of a pasta & meat of your choice that costs lesser than the usual (DUH,promo nga ‘di ba #AnoNaGette). Yum!
Four cheese pizza!
B, mukha tayong high dito……..
There you have it! I felt like I had to put this up on my blog so I’ll remember it. All of us would be quite busy next term so I’m afraid that we won’t be spending as much time as we did before. Considering the fact that we won’t be having same classes next term (crying #sakit). But no matter what these two would always be my loves! See you soon bitchachos! Miss you both.
Feeling extra productive today since I wasn’t able to go to school for I was not feeling well. Super sakit ng ulo ko! Hay nako Julian, kasalanan mo ‘to! Haha kdding! Anyway, 3rd blog entry for the day, yay!
So yesterday was just a typical day– muntik nanaman ako ma-late kasi naubusan nanaman ng UV (well, what’s new?!). Super hassle talaga palagi ng Thursday Mornings ko. Hay. So while I was (finally) on my way to school, my classmate texted me that our professor won’t be able to make it to school. So yay! Okay lang kahit ma-late!!! (lol) I reached school at exactly 9 am. There was just a guy student who was the substitute teacher for that day. We just had a seatwork, that’s all. Fast forward, I called Erika so that she could prep up for we are going to watch a movie. We already had everything planned last week. So came 12 in the afternoon, Erika and I met at the school gate and went to SM Manila together. As usual, hindi nanaman namin alam kung saan kami kakain. Haha! She said she was craving for mac and cheese and I was kind of too(?) so we ate at Pizza Hut. Ang sarap ng mac and cheese nila! Huhu *sobs*. While waiting for our order, I went up and bought the tickets.
#noselfies together because… hindi kami ganon ni Ery. We are selfie addicts ourselves pero kapag magkasama kami (for some unknown reason) ‘di kami sanay na we take a lot of pictures together. Siguro dahil lagi kami naman na kami magkasama. Hehe
After a week of getting it all together, I finally finished this entry! (Yay) Warning: This entry is gonna be a long (long loooong) one.. okay, here goes!
Happiest 18th birthday to one of my closest college friends, Kyla! Kyla is my first ever (girl) friend when I entered college. We were blockmates during our first term in Mapua. Super nakakatawa kung paano kami naging friends. Just to give you a short information about our friendship, hindi kami naging friends agad. We used to not like each other so much. Before we became super close friends, hindi kami masyado nag-uusap kahit na araw araw kami magkasama for 2 and a half months. Basta, there were a lot of ‘not so good’ circumstances bago kami naging friends. Haha! Then one afternoon, while on our way home from our Fil11 sabayang pagbigkas practice (trivia: super bulol po ni Kyla sa tagalog words, haha!) ayon.. nagkwentuhan kami bigla! Nagkwentuhan kami tungkol sa mga crush namin na blockmates namin (HAHAHAHAHAHA ANG LANDI BA) Tapos ayon, the rest is history. After that day, naging close na kami (para na nga kaming magkapatid eh). I remember after that day we already got used to calling each other Beb.(Aww, casting my mind back to that moment… super nakakamiss!) Tapos naging super close na talaga kami. Like sisters– soul sisters. We tell each other almost everything. Lagi din kami naguusap tungkol sa mga bagay bagay, tungkol sa buhay. Basta medyo madrama kami… di masyado? Basta emotional kami over certain things na kaming dalawa lang nakakaintindi. Most of the time pareho kami ng feels. Tsaka sya yung friend na ano, yung mapagsasabihan mo talaga ng kahit ano. Kahit problema man yan or kwento. Gets nyo? ‘Di ba may tao kasi na ganon, parang confidant. Basta.. yun na yon. Haha! That’s why Kyla is probably one of the most kind-hearted, genuine & loving person that I know. No doubt.
Last Sunday was filled with great, horrible, bittery-sweet happenings that made my last day of vacation quite eventful and of course fun! I started the day by waking up at around 9 in the morning thinking that we’d be celebrating my grandmother’s birthday at Vikings, MOA because that was actually the original plan. But my grandmother called at around 10 and told us that we’d just be celebrating it at Sambokojin instead, which was nearby. So we went to SM Southmall as soon as we finished everything we had to do. To our surprise, there was no reservation…. and we were the first ones to get there. It was already around 12 I guess? So we were on the waiting list since we’re kind of “late” for lunch that we need to line up. Then minutes after, my grandmother and my uncle’s family showed up. There were A LOT of complaining and shitty stuff that I don’t need to mention about. Well anyway, the buffet restaurant was just serving number 12, while we were in number 33. So they thought of looking for another restaurant just so we could eat already– considering the fact that I have to leave at 1pm since I promised my college friend, Kyla that I’d make time for the cotillion’s practice for her debut since its only weeks away. We looked for restaurants nearby and ALL of them couldn’t even decide where to eat. So it took a LOOOOOOOOOOOT of time. So to cut all the crap out, it was already 1pm. And I ENDED UP EATING FAST FOOD–MCDONALDS TO BE EXACT. Wow, from buffet to fast food real quick. I can never rant enough about how mad and furious and annoyed and pissed I was at that moment– that I ended up crying while ordering at Mcdonald’s. (How great, right?) I was kind of feeling under the weather that day and the heat— oh god the heat. So I was kind of hoping I could eat good food, real food before I go but I ended up with nothing. So I left the mall at around 1:30. With a heavy heart (wow OA).
So I went out with some of my high school friends the other day. The original plan was to meet at 4pm (that became 5 and eventually became 6pm) at Starbucks but there were a lot of people DAW (as per Jen & Angelo) so they’ve decided to proceed to Beanleaf instead (jusko umay na umay na ko sa beanleaf) Anyway medyo tinamad na ko, kasi nga pabago bago yung oras and I’VE BEEN CRAVING FOR STARBUCKS and I was collecting stickers for the planner pero di naman nga kami natuloy don. I was kind of mad because Starbucks was giving away 2 stickers for every single purchase of their drinks. Oh ‘di ba!!!! Sobrang sayang!!!!!!!Well anyway, I came to beanleaf at around 6:45 pm and most of them were already there. It felt nice that I get to see & talk to them again after almost 2 years.
(L-R) That’s Claire, Ralph, Angelo, Chai, Jen, Lourde and of course, Me!
