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!

Back to school!

Hello phantom readers!

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…

Jpeg
Jpeg

(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)

*Eraser

*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

*Permanent marker

*Whiteboard marker

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.

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!
