And now Its once again that time when the day has come to an end as people sleep and get some rest the next years rolling in.
To all I’d like to bid you a very happy New year too, I hoped that you’ve enjoyed my posts and maybe learned a thing or two about loving one another and rendering service do you true.
Its time to end the year once more and may your blessings be all shared every day and everywhere upon everything you do.
Ahhh the nostalgia of looking back a year.
Goodbye 2015! So much has happened this year and yet it came by like poof!
I finished my first year of college. I’ve read books and got into new fandoms. I’ve fangirled and phangirled. I’ve met new people who have became close to me. My bond with my besties have gotten even stronger. I’ve surpassed challenges. Experienced hardships and anguish. I survived pain and doubt and gotten through my anger. I’ve found more peace within myself and I have gained more faith in my abilities.
The past year I have also turned legally an adult. With my rising age I’m only acting more a child than ever! Okay partly joking XP
I also survived the toughest sem I’ve had yet. Survived the most frustrating professor and played pretty well in a sport. I’ve gotten past some boundaries and have extended my borders.
I’ve learned and I’ve tried and I’ve failed a lot but also succeeded and had many awkward moments as well as happy ones.
So many things have happened. Good and Bad. God loves me so because I gotten so many vlessigs even though I may not be deserving at times.
I’ve met wonderful people who have made their way into my heart. I cherish my loved ones and although there’s drama and hardships and struggles…I am so very thankful for it all. For the lessons I’ve learned and the inspiration, will and strength that come from my loves and God….man I survived the year and am now a little wiser, a little stronger, a little more confident and a lot more comfortable with being myself.
Thank you for my muses. Thank you Lord for the year. The next will be more challenging and difficult but your grace and compassion and Mercy…I know th will not abandon me or leave me wandering alone without guidance. I know th will continue to bless me and guide me and comfort and protect me and my family and friends.
To all my ready God believing or not, I wish you all happiness and peace. May the new year bring joy amidst suffering, success among failure and hope against all odds.
So I went to the mall yesterday to shop around for school supplies. I have school tomorrow!
I hear sighs from students all over the world…😂
Okay. Even if vacation is over, I’m sorta excitedto start the school year. Another new journey is ahead and this is gonna be a harder year but I know Ill get through it. I really am set to get into the Dean’s list this year. I almost made the cut last semester. I gotta fight harder now.
Anyway back to my mall story….
I just bought these…
(Sorry for the blurry picture. I’m gonna write this post fast because I got stuff to do)
Well I didnt buy the bag or the leather thing and my pouches but just the stuff.
I bought the school things from National bookstore and some essentials from Watson’s and mercury drug. I bought my shoes in the SM department store.
Just in case a UST student happens to pass by this blog and is trying to figure out what kind of stuff to buy, Ill give you my list:)
*Notebooks (I recommend fillers because some instructors/professors require to pass notebooks but that’s rare)
*Planner or a special notebook( to jot down assignments and thugs due. I recommend keeping track of your absences as well. You’re only allowed 20% of the school year. Don’t be tardy because 3 tardies equals 1 a scent.)
*yellow pad paper. (We use this more now)
*intermediate pad paper( some professors who like being different use this still)
*index cards(in all sizes)
*pens(mostly black but don’t forget a red pen)
*highlighters( very helpful in putting emphasis on readigs and notes)
*correction tape/ fluid(for one writing mistakes)
*Pencil(#2 for exams that would be checked through scanner)
*glue stick(for sticking your ID pics to index cards)
*1×1 and 2×2 ID pictures
*umbrella. Yes. A school NEED for thomasians!
*post it notes
Basically that’s it for the school supplies.
As for the bag it would be very good for you to get a waterproofed one. You’ll thank yourself for it.
Now, don’t forget your REGISTRATION FORM. ITS YOUR TICKET TO EVERYTHING
Your professors would also sign it during the first days. So its very important
Don’t buy books yet. Wait for then to of the prof. Sometimes they may not require books so its better to wait so that money isn’t wasted.
Bring coins they’ll be useful for photocopying the syllabus and readings.
Bring bottled water and bandaids for girls. Just in case your shoes decide to hurt you.
Don’t take the lessons easy. Some professors teach in a loose way but actually are strict when it comes to grades.
Bring a smile. Make new friends and enjoy. The first year will be the easiest so just do your best.
Enough for tips. I’m just kinda hyped for school! Excited and nervous and scared that this storm would come….that would mean flood and heavy rain and heavy traffic flow.
But its thThomasian way of life. as you get used to it, It’ll be sorta normal and not that big of a deal.
Anyway, I gotta get lots of sleep for tomorrow. Sleep is very precious.
I think it is about time I tell you internet peeps about my best friend. 🙌She is a sister to me in everything but blood. My constant confidant and guidance especially when I feel like my world is just a big tangled mess and I’m in the deepest pit of darkness, she is the brightest light that can put a smile on my face in my worst of moods.😻
I met her in my freshmen year of high school📕📖📚. I left my first school Montessori and then transferred to a catholic all girls school😇. It was around Christmas time 🎄and Montessori was having their annual Christmas program. I was visiting and enjoying the free food when my classmate from grade school who still went to Montessori started playfully teasing me.
I was pretty childish back then(still am^ω^). So naturally I ran after him. I couldn’t catch up to him but then this girl fell in step with me, she was also trying to chase the guy because apparently he was bugging her earlier.
All was fine, the guy wasn’t a bully, he was just a really good friend and such friends just love to annoy you at times. I thanked him for that day.👊
The girl and I eventually gave up since, why the effort? There’s free food everywhere,🍴🍨☕🍧🍦🍩🍰🍪🍔🍕🍝🍟🍖🍗🍣🍫🍬🍮
I rather feast than chase that guy all day. The girl, whom I like to call sister in Greek (Percy Jackson got us greeky😹) sat down with me and we got talking and founding out about everything we had and didn’t have in common.
The next school year, I transferred back to Montessori and we got close and closer and even after she transferred school the next year, we never drifted away. ☺We hardly talked to each other but when we do meet, it’s like we were never apart.💞
She knows my deepest darkest secrets and guards them as if they were her own. She loves me despite hugging her too hard that I forgot about her milk box she had and it spilled on her top…😫😝😂😘
She’s my biggest motivator in life and I really can’t imagine losing her.
She really is the best.😘
A few days ago, we finally saw each other after like a year. We went to the mini mall that mostly is just a bazaar and we played cruddy arcade games and sat down for hours talking about anything and nothing. It was the best I had in a long while.😆
Although I have other friends I consider my best friends as well, this special girl has a special place in my heart 💖
She got me through a lot and always refused to believe I was anything less than great. I have tons of flaws and she doesn’t care for any of them. I absolutely love her and thank God I have met this wonderful person in my life.
To the people reading through my long post, I just want you to remember not to take for granted the people/person you call your best friend. They truly are gifts sent from heaven.
