I’M ALIVE

Image

Yes, I know. I AM BACK. And considering that my last post was ages ago, this is a HUGE deal. Like, ginormous. Guess where I’ve been. Yup. That’s right. I WAS STUCK IN SCHOOL. And let me tell you, first semester SUCKS. BIG TIME. I can’t even afford to sleep anymore, let alone blog. 😦 Which sucks because I lost a shitload of followers (not that I actually care) on Tumblr, I don’t have time to update my blog and I don’t have time to write anymore. This is pretty much why I had multiple emotional and mental breakdowns the past couple of months.

First semester was such bullshit that I almost dropped out… then I realized that my tuition was paid in full and that my parents probably won’t allow me which basically means I. AM. STUCK. That is not so bad unless you’re like me who is in a permanent teenage existential crisis. Let’s have a rundown my hell sem shall we?

Just imagine:

It’s the start of a new school year, new semester, new subjects, new classmates, new professors, new everything. Sounds pretty exciting right??? NOT. Let me tell you why. Nothing sucks more than when you’re separated from your group of friends, expected to face the new school year alone. Oh yeah. My life is dabomb.com. The only classes that I have with them were two of our major subjects. It shouldn’t be such a big deal yeah? But it just felt like I’ll be missing out on a lot. And I was right. At least my friends didn’t rub it in my face and they fill me in whenever I miss out on something. Oh and don’t forget Theology. Yep. Pretty sure I failed that one. Oh and don’t forget the part where I have to attend classes where I know ABSOLUTELY NO ONE. Take PE for example, everyone knows each other then there’s me with earphones on. Although that thing is kinda my fault since my friends wanted to take Badminton and I wanted to take Self-Defense for PE (which then also turned to badminton coz our professor had to take a freaking leave fml). But hey, at least I got to hang out with Anna, Pau and Cj coz *HALLELUJAH* we have most of our classes together. Still, it was hard being away from The Purifiers. We rarely got to hang out anymore, and when we actually do, WE ARE STRESSED AS FUDGE. That’s actually one of the things that made this a hell of a semester. It’s like the professors thought it would be a good idea to pile us up with a shit ton of work. And did I mention that most of them are due the same day? IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER.

Now let’s get to the subjects. One word: PE. Don’t get me wrong. I love PE. But not when it’s sports I mean COME ON. It’s SPORTS. Me and sports do not go well. I actually took up self-defense for PE this semester but our PE professor thought it would be fun to go on leave IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SEMESTER. And since the department can’t find a replacement, we had to take up badminton instead. This is not what I signed up for. Literally. Moving on, have you ever had that one class where you just wanna put your head in a blender? And no, I’m not talking about Math. That is just pure hell. I’m talking about Philosophy. Yeah that’s right– CRITICAL THINKING. My brain already hurts from regular thinking what makes them think that I’d be able to survive this class??? (Although I did pass this class with a surprisingly high grade.) The quizzes are freaking impossible PLUS we have to make a frickin JOURNAL OF CRITICAL THINKING wherein we have to an example of correct thinking and wrong thinking for THE WHOLE SEMESTER. That is a lot okay. And don’t forget the final exam: D E B A T E. Wow I love this class. But good news is we won the debate YAY.  And here’s one minor subject that felt like it would be cool to be treated as a major: BIOLOGY. Even though I’m fine with it, it’s just too much for a minor subject. What am I? Bachelor of Arts in Communication Major in Biology??? AW HELL NO. AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT THAT FREAKING ASS EXPENSIVE BOOK WE HAD TO BUY FOR A FREAKING ASS CODE THAT WE NEEDED TO ANSWER ONLINE QUIZZES LIKE NIGGA OUR TUITION FEE IS ALREADY AS HIGH AS WIZ KHALIFA WE DON’T NEED THIS MINOR SUBJECT BEING THE CAUSE OF OUR BANKRUPTCY DAMN IT. But hey. At least I got exempted from taking the final exam whoop whoop. We also had this major class where all we did was report. Creative reporting, that is. But hey, I’m not complaining. Got a high grade in that one OH YEAH. 

LET’S TALK ABOUT MY FAVORITE SUBJECTS YEAH?

> THEATRE CLASS. NOW THAT IS DA BOMB. Yes the first part was a bit hard coz theatre history, but I survived that with flying colors. Then comes the best part: WORKSHOP. See, for our finals in this class we had to make a major production. This is itself should be another blog post because it is long as fudge. 

> COMMUNICATION THEORIES. I was actually a bit scared at first because of the professor. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it or anything but majority if the students don’t like her. And she’s well aware of that fact. Surprisingly tho, in our class, we have so much fun. It’s like we’re always in a recollection and I ACTUALLY LEARN. Our professor was fun in our class and she’s not that scary. Best part of this clss is that we’re learning while having fun. Yes the theories are long and ugh, but the professor and my blockmates make it worthwhile. WE ARE A CLINGY BLOCK OKAY. That is a known fact to professors. And did I mention that our Comm Theories professor IS A DIRECTIONER??? SHE’S A LOUIS GIRL FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. HER PHONE WALLPAPER IS LOUIS TOMLINSON. Four for you Miss Awesome Professor. Sadly, we’re her last class because she’s not teaching in our school anymore coz she’s moving away. 😦

That’s pretty much it. One whole semester full of STRESSBALLS. Major emotional roller coaster ride. Which is why my blockmates and I agreed that we’d be together in some classes. WE ARE GOING TO DOMINATE THE CLASS. What can I say, I have amazing blockmates. This would make me seem mean but seeing that I’m not the only one that is on the verge of exploding made feel somewhat alright. My friends and I wallowed in our stressed lives. And even though we already had a lot going on, we still found time for each other and to goof off. Which is how I made it through this semester.

I really wish our sembroke would go slower because honestly, I still haven’t recovered from the first semester.

Froggy Frog Frog

Image look at how pretty i am. look at that troll face. epic.

We had a garage sale (it was actually a basement sale but whatever) last Monday as our fund raising activity for our NSTP class. We need some funds to be able to purchase an educational package from the Knowledge Channel Foundation to be able to help the school in Laiban, Tanay from where we had our exposure trip (which I still haven’t blogged about. ugh) The educational package is a solar-powered laptop and projector. The laptop contains educational videos, games, and other stuff to help children learn faster. The project leaders chose the solar one because the electricity there only runs for 3 hours (6-9 pm) and it is actually through a generator. So it’s very efficient and it would make lives easier for the people of Laiban. So for the fundraising, we gathered up stuff like clothes, bags, accessories, books, etc. that we don’t use anymore or still haven’t used. Then we kinda set it all up at the ESI basement (it was really scary in there). We were needed early (and by early, I meant at the ungodly hour of 8 in the morning… ON A MONDAY.) So we (Angie and I) went there and we were kinda late… 30 minutes late and helped set up the place. Then we met with some people from KCFI. They explained to us the use of the package, how it would help the children, their goals, and all that other stuff. After that, they let us try out the educational thingy and things went CRAY CRAY. There’s this game about food chains called Froggy Frog Frog that we went crazy over because of the background music. MAJOR LSS. Anyway, after that we just ate our lunch and did some final preparations for the garage sale. After that, we were officially OPEN! I was assigned at the books section, so that’s where I was. I knew no one wold buy the books coz let’s face it, only a few people read books nowadays. But still, I stayed in my position and I was the one who read the books I was selling. 🙂 We realized that not much people were coming in so my co-Purifiers and I decided to go and kidnap some customers. Aindie and I went inside the school and WE WERE ON FIRE. We sold pretty much everything we were selling! We did make a pretty good team. It was awkward and humiliating at first, calling in customers, but after a few jokes about our “job”, we felt confident. Plus, the people that we invited to check out out garage sale actually went to check it out and even bought some stuff. Aindie and I were really surprised when we went back to the basement and find it filled with people we invited!

All in all, it was a fun, fun day! Got to try a lot of new things… it was very tiring but it was worth it because I know I’m tired from doing something I know would help someone.

How about you? Done any act of kindness lately? Do it with friends! You’ll be having fun while helping someone. 😛

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Oh my glob. I am so sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. There’s just too many college stuff to do so please bear with me. No one reads this blog anyway. But if you do, I love you and I promise to blog more. I’ll bring my laptop tomorrow so I can FINALLY post something coz we have a free cut tomorrow. Please don’t hate me whoever you are who actually reads my blog. I love you. xx

Meet The Purifiers (Part 1)

Image

(Pardon my awesome paint editing skills)

So, those are my friends. 🙂 I met them during the first semester of my first year in college. I actually became friends with Aindie first, then Angie, then we kinda just mixed up with Nao, Cleo, and Nneka. I remember it happening like it was just yesterday… *cue flashback*

I met Aindie on the first day of school. We both had the same schedule (turned out we were a block section) and we sat next to each other waiting for the class to begin. Then, Angie came and I offered the seat next to me since there’s no available seat left. After that, we kinda just clicked, ya know? We bought some snacks from that nachos stall and sat on one of the benches at the Paz Adriano Hall. We talked about our weirdness, interests and all that chiz you talk about when you meet someone for the first time. We talked about the cartoons we like to watch (yes, we are college students who still watch cartoons). It was probably the only time I’ve been social. Yes, it was awkward at first, I told them that… but once you get to know me, you’ll regret meeting me. 😉 Joke! Well, it’s a bit true. but in a good way. At the end of the day, we exchanged cell numbers and Twitter accounts… I would’ve never survived the first day of my college life if it wasn’t for those two. Gette (my best friend) and I have different schedules so it was scary for me. But after meeting those two idiots, I was kinda excited for the second day of school. 🙂

I love those two weird people. *insert cheesy background music*

I don’t really remember much from that first day, but I do remember meeting friends I know will be with me for a long, long time. #cheesy

I know we’ve only been friends for some months but you know, like a famous curly-haired popstar once said: “If you get on with someone, you just click.” (or something like that, idk)

Well, this is part 1. I’ll post part 2 on Monday. It’s gonna get crazier!

excited
