Days-before-classes-resume series: Michael’s 20th
For his 20th birthday surprise, we gave him 20 palad selfies of his friends (‘cause we’re maPALAD to have Michael Palad as a friend huehue). The friday after his birthday, he invited Circle to dinner at Cyma (greek cuisine is lalalalove, especially the pasta with clams in it!). Afterwards, we also had dessert (our thank you treat to Michael) at Gelatissimo (we also ate the cake we gave him HAHA).
It’s always a great time with this bunch. <3 (Like legit, Michael even fell from the couch from laughing HAHAHA)
Days-before-classes-resume series: ABM’s Recruitment Video Shoot
This is the first we’re this many and we decided to have lunch in Area 2 (we ate at the Bulalo place which is really really good and is perfect for the rainy season)! I mean, I’ve been in Area 2 a couple of times with my friends, but not with this many ABMers ‘cause the other side of UP seems so far away HAHA. We also decided to just ride a jeepney, and there was a point when we were the only ones (other than the driver) in it! All aboard the ABM jeep. <3
P.S. Apparently, I’m a summa cum laude in the final video huehue I think foreshadowing HAHAHA jk asa.
Schedule: In Progress
Advanced enlistment in IB was on the second of July and this time, I got my first choice! (Well, almost. I wanted a Friday lab for 101 but.. oh, well.) So, for the first time ever, I made a layout of my schedule using photoshop!! Congrats to myself ‘cause I finally moved on from excel HAHA Also, here’s to getting a GE at TTh 8:30-10!
Besides that, we’re making a huge progress in the freshie primer! Huhu super grateful for my team this year, and I’m so glad I chose them and that they chose Biologue as their first comm choice as well. <3
And other than my org life this mid-year, I’m also a tutor now! The pay’s actually low but money is money! And I’m just teaching a Grade 4 student so it’s pretty chill and fun, actually. She also shares a lot of kwentos so I don’t really feel like I’m working (plus, I don’t do much this midyear so teaching is a good idea).
I’m going to get my paycheck of the week later so I really couldn’t wait to finally start putting money in my “places and things” money jar!! It still sucks to say no to a lot of people regarding gimik/chill session/catch up time plans, but hopefully I’ll get used to it. I mean, I’ll say yes from time to time (of course, ‘di ko kaya hindi gumala), but I have to learn when to say no. This is all for (future) travelling/backpacking and for buying things I need (like a new pair of eyes hehe, and a lomo, and even a tablet one day!) Money’s tight in our family so I really don’t want to ask for more money from my parents na so #IndependentWoman-ish ang peg ko now HAHAHA.
Grateful to work with these amazing people, etc.
ExeComm meeting: so many plans but I know, kakayanin namin, ng org ito! (Pictures fell huhu weak shit na talaga ‘yung tape HAHA) And yes, girl power ang execomm this year HAHAHA
Went to arki vickie with al, paolo, and nicole for lunch: Paolo drove Al’s Elantra and we survived!! Good luck sa exam this Saturday, Pao! <3
Org consultation with CSSC: Bea’s so legit! Sumunod also si yami so I got my ehd from her! Ahhh about time for me to have one!!
Tutee: was supposed to teach today but my tutee was sick. :( Get well soon!! I ended up staying at the seats near Fully Booked while waiting for Raffy and Dhom (medyo 3 hours din ako naghintay). Oh well, I got to read “Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman”! Murakami is <3.
Trinoma hits: Apparently, lumindol… Oh well, had a good time with the guys! I’m always here for them both!! (and they to me!) Forever grateful to have them. <3
Pre-Divergent, Divergent, and afterwards!
(After updating this blog, I just realized how much closer I am with Dom and Pau HAHA)
Kunwari ‘di hell week. Kunwari wala akong chem 40 exam the next day at 8am. Kunwari ‘di stressed. Super thankful for these guys for doing all those random and stupid and childish things HAHA Sobrang break from reality and I really really needed that.
And of course, congrats fin and thank you ABM for that wonderful screening of Divergent!! I have to say na for me, parang mas nagustuhan ko yung movie HAHA They removed some scenes of course that I wanted to see pero I thought the changes were actually good.
