Another school year ahead.

Aug 3. Misa De Apartura. The mass of the Holy Spirit.

Aug 4.Freshies’ Orientation.

Aug 5. Today. The Thomasian Welcome Walk 2015.

Man… CONGRATS FRESHIES!!!

…You aren’t full blooded thomasians yet. At least not until you pass initiation….the flood waters around campus during storms.

Trust me August will be a really wet month. The water you’re gonna have to worry about isn’t the one that comes down but rather, the one that rises up.

(Redundancy!)

Any who. I am super jealous of your scarves and caps. Why did we not have that last year?

Haha XD

Well I hope you guys enjoy the party tonight. Next week will be the real beginning.

Classes, decorations, activities, quizzes and exams.

Don’t lose your nerve with the ‘terror’ profs. They only seem so bad at first.

Just remember. Those monsters are people too!

Okay…be kind to your professors and instructors. Study hard. Don’t give up(especially during hell week[exam week])

You’re really in for a ride.

As freshmen stare starry eyed at the new life that awaits them, my own new beginning is underway.

Sophomore year!

I made it past the adjustment period. Now its time to brave another year which would expectedly be more difficult but…I think I’ll be able to do well:3

My goal is to get into Dean’s list.  Get a scholarship. Learn to play badminton better! And most of all…enjoy!

To the freshies. Welcome to UST. For my fellow sophomores, lets do this!

Back to school: My FILED: File Folder

Hello Internet People!

Welcome to Sammi Daae Phantom Blog!!

Today, I am going to share with you the thing I use to organize like, my papers or notes, where I put em’ all…

Let’s get to it!


First of all, Just last December I finally bought this binder/file folder thingy that I had wanted since last summer.

It’s the FILED: file folder. I’ll share some photos from the shop’s page itself down below. I hope you’ll be able to see it clearly.

There you go! ^_^

If you watch the video from the link you’ll see everything that has to do with the file folder as well as what comes within it.

It already has a lot of organizers inside. You don’t have to buy separate envelopes and folders.

For a price of Php 835 ($18.8), I think it’s pretty okay.

I got mine in pink and I love it! ❤

This thing is basically all I need for everything.


If you don’t already know, I am a freshman Literature Major. 🙂

That field of study requires great organization skills because this course basically means PAPERS. papers papers papers day and night PAPERS!

Last semester, I had a bit of trouble in organizing my stuff and I had an accordion file case,

and It was great in keeping my homework, readings and other whatevers in order; but, it also contributed a lot to the weight on my back. I commute going to and from school so carrying a heavy backpack puts strain on my back therefor giving me neck and back pain.

Not fun.

I also had a tiny binder full of fillers for my notes as well as separate folders to put my quizzes and exam papers in. My backpack was always full!

I wanted a single thing to put everything in and I didn’t want to carry that much this coming semester.

Soooo I thought of just buying the dang FILED: File Folder. /^.^/

Being binder, folder, file keeper and bag-ish thingy…in one really is the best thing to get.

I ditched my filler notebooks and just went for one BIG notebook to fit in my binder. My important papers like my registration form and schedule is placed in the envelope filler. I’ll be slipping in my syllabus there. I also added some index cards in the pockets at the left and placed one pencil, two pens, an eraser and a highlighter in the detachable mesh pencil case.

In the 3 slot envelope, I plan to put my homework there.

The front slot will be labeled “IN” as in the incoming homework that I have to do and the back will be “OUT”, the already done homework.

In my big notebook will be my notes from all my nine classes while the filler paper inside the binder will be for like revisions of my notes to be used for review. I’ll just divide the notebook into nine portions.

In college, you don’t really need to write down every single thing your instructor says. You would just end us wasting the paper in the back of your notebooks.

I had a subject wherein I only wrote like, in three pages for the whole term. :-/

I just end up ripping out the notes and using the paper for my drawings, doodles and short stories, songs, poems or whatever at the end of the term. :3


Basically, all I’ll carry in my backpack is the File folder, my planner, my big notebook, my emergency kit and wallet. Oh! Maybe a pad of yellow paper too.

As opposed to carrying a binder notebook full of fillers, nine folders, an accordion file, my pencil case, planner, plastic envelope, emergency kit, wallet and pad papers; I clearly will carry less and now my stuff is like, compact.

It’s also a plus that this file folder is waterproof because my school is soooo flood prone. A lot of stuff was ruined when I was using this bag that I thought was waterproof but wasn’t. Everything got wet! 😦

Definitely a plus.


(By the way, I’m sorry that I can’t put up my own photos to help you visualize what I’m saying, I feel like I’m really not all to clear. I’ll try my best. I don’t have a camera and the one on my phone is crappy. 😦 I’ll be getting a new phone around the 20th of January or so and I’ll start posting my own pics then. 🙂 )


If you can’t get your hands in one of this FILED: file folders, I really recommend you to just buy a big binder as well as the separate stuff similar to what’s inside on my file folder. It really will help to have it all in one place. It also minimizes space in your school bag and it’s cute, handy and my favorite, waterproof!!! 😀
