HELL WEEK UPDATE

Hey Hey Hey Phantom Readers! Oh my gosh.

I am approaching my last day of Junior Year in the University of Santo Tomas. Whuuuttt?

Yup last three weeks ago was h e l l on earth.

So stressful. So scary. So tiring and my gosh so Over!

I’ve had reports, quizzes, projects and my THESIS PROPOSAL DEFENSE (that went AWESOME btw).

IT’S AMAZING.

Three weeks ago I though would be super impossible to get this far. I even had to act in a One Act Play entitled “Half an Hour in a Convent” by Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero. I played Yolanda and the experience was just awesome. I missed Acting in plays be it in workshops or school play…I was happy to have this experience and my groupmates were wonderful.

We had Ivy who created the looks. She made the Nun costumes work. And feather who helped along.

We had Lloyd who directed us. He worked on choreography, positioning, speech, and action…the whole thing. Awesome. Jeff helped with Ques and Lines and remembering where we were supposed to be when we said something.

Amfelle helped with props and getting everything prepared. She even cleaned up after despite having the start of a fever. We have Aura and Roi, very thankful for their help too.

Then there are my fellow actors:

Marinette. She is also the group leader. She played Mother Superior. I was just so happy for her and proud at how she delivered. She remembered all her lines and she was just amazing.

Ella was awesome. Good delivery and her scream was on fleek.

Yvonne…Yvonne was sooo good. She and I were attempting to cry but our emotions weren’t very in the  moment so we weren’t able to accomplish that but no worries, we survived and I think we survived very well.

I am so proud of these people. Brava to us.

Let’s talk proposal defense. I was freaking nervous but it wasn’t really apparent yet. My nerves have a tendency to reveal themselves last minute. So I can be nervous but chill for the hour before something and then, five minutes before my turn my heart would start beating faster, my hands would shake and I would want to jump around and stuff because I’m suddenly pumped.

But anywayssss I was watching other people’s defenses and sitting beside our adviser. When he asked the defensee something and they couldn’t answer and Sir would turn to me and sorta ask me….I am just so eeeeeeeeek I was able to answer and when it finally came to my turn to defend my proposal, IT WENT SO WELL…I was on Cloud 9.

Then right after, Marinette who is also our class president went to me and told me she had good news. I was part of the ten exempted from this final exam in this subject. I nearly cried!

This subject was the one I was stressing over most (other than the proposal defense) So…I took my bestie and made a beeline for the school chapel.XD

THANK YOU LORD!

What else? what else? what else?

Ohhh Yesterday!

Went to Canyon Cove in Batangas. It was my mom’s office outing and we- sibs and I, tagged along. I wasn’t expecting to be able to come because finals week often had the tendency to have a very wacked up schedule.But I was able to so that was pretty fun. I have an awful tan line but eh! I enjoyed meditating while kneeling on the seashore allowing the sea to drag me in and pull me back. It was pretty relaxing.

I did underwater ballet in the pool and it was fun to stretch my legs with the extra help from H2O.

My mom allowed me a drink or two or three of Tanduay Ice Alcomix Pomelo. I’m not into Alcohol and my only experience with it so far was the Blue Tanduay Ice during my debut and cheap red wine during New Years eve. It was nice to taste but I am pretty sure I’ll be sticking to rootbeer and choco-coffee instead.

Hmmm

What’s up in the future?

Well….After tomorrow, which is the last exam day!

I’ll be having Community Development trips on the 30th and 1st of June for my Organization and then two months of a well anticipated break.

Meaning, I can finally…FINALLY post more than I have been doing. I expect to read and watch movies and stuff so this blog won’t be so bare and I can finally get rid of some cobwebs.

I’ll also be posting a short story-maybe. I might write on here as it has been FOREVER since I’ve written stories.

I need to rekindle my love with writing and reading for fun.

I don’t really have my two month break in plans but yes. Very excited for that. After the short break, I will be a SENIOR on to take my FINAL YEAR in UNIVERSITY. I will be holding a BACHELORS DEGREE in LITERATURE and I will be out JOB HUNTING. O.O

But of course, I have to finish my thesis and defend it first…

Hahahahaha sleepness nights await.

huhuhuhu

XD

Well, that is all, for now, Phantom readers. For those of you who had stayed on and still follows this blog. Hi! I’m still alive and still attempting to update so just hold on there and I thank you ever so much. For those who have just gotten on to this, Welcome!

I’ll be sharing a pic of the actors from Half an Hour. I might make it my cover photo of this post. We’ll see.

Til’ next time. God Bless all!

Half time

Helllooooo phantom readers!

Guess who’s on break now…Me!

I’m done with my exams and I’m done with my second year of college. I’m halfway there!

My last day was last Friday. Yesterday was spent watching Xmen: Apocalypse with my Mom and siblings and then sleeping a lot.

Thank goodness I can catch up on sleep😴

It has been a ride and the past semester has been very challenging but I got through it. All I have to do now is wait for the results. 😅

I’m pretty sure I did alrght in all the subjects so…here’s to praying I see good grades.

Hmmm, what to do now?

Catch up more on sleep, read my books that I haven’t read yet, get to watching some series, >maybe< get a part time job….Ill think of the rest later. I’m going back to bed.

Have an awesome day readers!

Approaching the final wave.

Hello phantom readers! I haven’t been able to post as I had planned but well life if just uncooperative sometimes.

It has been hectic for me. Up and down and sides and over. Next week are my final exams- except for filipino subject I had just finished the oral exam early this day. Hope i get a good score.

Anyway. Just thebuodate of what’s going on. After next week…LONG SCHOOL BREAK.!!!

I just need to suffer a bit more until I can be reprieved.

Anyway, happy Saturday readers!

 

Finals Week.

I can’t believe it. My freshman year is ending. I have almost survived this big event in my life. Finals week is here.

The past few weeks were the most hardest, challenging and grueling weeks of my life by far.

In a little over the week, I will be free to relax and hopefully marvel over the tiny achievements I had over the year.

This chapter of my life is closing and I can’t wait but I’m also a little sad. Everyone is a mixture of happy and sad at the end of e very school year.

Right now though is the calm before the storm which is finals and the storm before the rainbow which is vacation!

I can’t go into this anymore because I’m busy, but oh my goodness, my feels are overwhelming but I’m ready, let’s do this WOOO HOO!!!!

How I’m surviving Pre-hell season (AKA FRESHMAN COLLEGE FINALS WEEK) + quote of the week

First and foremost….

I’m not.

Work has me by the throat and It’s slowly killing me. I’m deprived of air and i Just can’t take a breather.

And the worst of it all? I’m only a freshmen…it’ll only get harder.

My professors are adding up work everywhere! I think they forgot that their subject is NOT our only subject. I’m hardly getting enough sleep and I’m going crazy with all the papers I need to write and rewrite and look over and critique. I have so many quizzes to study for. Finals are on May 13 to 15. Usually I’d be studying at around this time but even I don’t have time to study. I need to get the papers out of the way first.

“Teachers! I’m human too! I’m no robot who can spend lots of time in class and still get piled up with work at home.”

I can’t even read what I wanna read! I’m a literature major! I’m in it for the books and I can’t even have the books…

cruel.

I’m only posting this because I need an outlet. My brain is fried and I have the worst case of AUTHORS BLOCK at the worst time possible. I’m craving for sweets (i’m a sweet tooth) and coffee. I need to keep awake.

I think the best way to survive though is to keep time for everything. Even if it’s a few minutes.

My advise if you’d ever be in my place (or are already in my place): Don’t forget to take care of yourself. And I mean physically, mentally and spiritually.

People. you important and don’t ya ever forget it.

Working and studying and trying to get things done well is great but if you need a break. Take a break before you break.

Okay? Okay

Bright side now. I have about 22 or so more days then SWEET FREEDOM BABY!!!!!!!!!

OH YEAH!!!!!

I just gotta get through the right now. It’s seems soooooo impossible but I’ll get through it. I know I can (Or at least I want to believe I can.)

I’ll leave you peeps off with a quote for the week.

Forget trying to make other people proud. Start caring about making yourself proud of you.

I’m done working my tushy to make people proud. I want to be proud of myself and not always look at others for affirmation and praise and reassurance. My goal right now is to end my freshman year with no regrets, no negative feelings and thoughts on myself. I wanna be proud of me. I’m getting through this tough school year, I’m tired and ready to rest but at least I know I’m on the right track; worrying on the right things to worry about and knowing this is gonna pay off.

How?

It could be that fuzzy feeling I got when my Challenge-Activity in logic turned out so right and I all I wanted was to pass (I don’t know how I did it but majority didn’t)

My initial thought was “That’s rare. Probably won’t happen again.” but then, there was that voice deep inside me saying “You got it in you all along. You just didn’t know it yet. Allow yourself happiness in your achievement.” And I smiled going to my locker allowing myself to be proud for that moment.

Or…

Maybe the feeling of pure elation when I found out that I didn’t fail math AND my grade was higher than I initially thought it would be.

or….

The feeling of breathless joy when I received a text from the audition judges for Hi-5 Philippines and I passed to the next round.

If I really think of it. I did pretty good. I just wasn’t giving myself that much credit.

Maybe you’re like me…?

Do you give yourself enough credit?

I know you could get through whatever you are facing right now. While you do that, I’m gonna kill this paper and then sleep with a smile on my face this morning.

It’s 12:11. Good Morning!!!!
