“First section kayo. Iba kayo. Kailangan ganito ganyan chorvaness eklabu na pinagsasawaan na namin ng ilang taon. Ganito ganyan mahabang speech.”
Oo, gets naman namin na ang mga teachers mataas lagi yung expectations samin. Pero yung iba kasi sobrang sobrang sobrang mas mataas yung expectations than the rest of the teachers. Ano kami? Porket first section, inaasahan mong perfect kami? Inaasahan mong magaling kaagad kami sa bawat topic na itinuturo? Hayyy. Kainis talaga. Akala niyo kasi sobrang galing namin eh. Tao rin kami. DUHHH. Porket science section hindi na pwedeng magkamali, hindi na pwedeng maging imperfect. T_T
Kapag talaga nag-graduate, I will be so happy to finally be free of the binds of their unrealistically high expectations. I swear.
Hullo there! :)
HIMYM, Modern Family, and New Girl! ♥ :)
Galing kasi kami kanina sa SM North Edsa. Tas sumakay kami sa jeep. May apat na laman. Lahat lalaki. Dalawa sa both sides. Si mama yung unang sumakay, ako sunod, tas si ate. Umupo kami ni mama sa gitna nung dalawang lalaki sa left since nakaupo sila sa dulo dulo. Si ate naman, nasa harap nung isang guy sa right. I swear, pagkapasok ni mama tas pag-apak ko sa apakan, sobrang sobrang SOBRANG sama ng kutob ko. Tas buti nalang medyo nag-iintay rin siya ng pasahero so medyo nagtagal ng ilang seconds, pero few seconds are all I needed.
Habang nakaupo kami ni mama, ang sama ng tingin nung lalaking nasa likod ni ate na katapat namin. Sobrang sama ng tingin kay mama. Tinitignan ko siya. Feeling ko sobrang tagal nun kasi sobrang sama talaga ng kutob ko pero in reality ilang seconds lang siguro yun. Tinititigan ko siya tas talagang hindi lumilihis yung tingin niya kay mama. Tas tumingin ako sa labas para medyo umokay yung kutob pero sobrang bils na tingin lang. Pagtingin ko ulit dun sa lalaki, nakatingin naman sa bag na hawak ni mama. Malaking paper bag pa naman yun ng damit na binili namin kanina. Ang sama rin ng tingin niya dun sa bag, tas tumingin naman sa paper bag na hawak ko na medium-sized.
Take note na in less than one minute nangyari lahat ‘to. Sobrang sama ng kutob ko na halos hindi na ako makapag-salita tas talagang kinakalabit ko na si mama, pero feeling ko hindi ata kasi sobrang parang paralyzed ako nun. Buti nalang tumigil ulit yung jeep kasi may sasakay pero talagang inunahan ko siya. Bumaba ako kaagad. Alam ko namang susundan ako nina mama at ni ate eh. Sobrang sama talaga ng kutob ko I swear that time ko lang naramdaman yun ever. Pagbaba namin, halos talagang mangiyak ngiyak na ako na hindi ako makapag-salita. Basta sobrang sobrang sobrang bilis ng tibok ng puso ko. Yun na ata yung pinaka-nakakatense na moments ng buhay ko.
Hindi ako bigla nalang nag-judge sa itsura nila ha. No. As in talagang nung pagpasok ko tas nakita ko si mama na nakaupo sa gitna tas katapat nung lalaki tas umupo ako sa tabi niya, sobrang ang sama ng kutob ko. Hindi yung tipong may suspicion lang tas saka naging full-on pagdududa. Hindi. Talagang pagpasok ko, na-feel ko talaga na masama sila. I swear talaga nakakatakot. Sumakay kami ng FX after nun. Sobrang hindi parin ako kumakalma nun. Ang bilis parin ng tibok ng puso ko tas sobrang paranoid to the highest level ako.
Guys ‘wag kayong tatanga-tanga sa mga jeep ha. Be wary. Habang tinatype ko ngayon sobrang kinakabahan ako ulit. Guys hindi na po ako magco-college. Natatakot na po ako mag-commute. Magta-trabaho nalang po ako sa isang carinderia. Pero seriously, NAKAKATAKOT TALAGA. Iba yung tipong masama lang talaga yung tingin ng tao, na yun na yung face nila talaga. As in yung tingin niya, yung para bang searching for something.. Something valuable. Tas ang sama nga ng tingin dun sa loob ng paper bag, tas tumingin rin nga sa paper bag ko diba? Tas nung nasa tricycle na kami pauwi, sabi ni mama parang nag-senyasan daw ng tingin yung dalawang lalaki na napagigitnaan kami. Buti nalang talaga at bumaba ako kaagad. Iba talaga yung kutob eh. Sobrang nakakatakot talaga. If something bad happened, hindi ko talaga alam kung anong gagawin ko. To think na if ever hindi ako nag-act upon instict tas may masamang mangyayari.. I would’ve been really mad at myself.
It was truly a nightmare. I swear, a nightmare talaga.
**btw if you will notice, I said na apat na guys yung nasa jeep. 2 on both sides. Tatlo lang dun yung magkakakuntsaba. Yung isa ay feeling ko legit na pasahero lang. I hope walang masamang nangyari dun. Pati dun sa babaeng sasakay sana nung bumaba kami. I hope walang masamang nangyari dun sa mga yun. :(
Guys maging aware kayo sa paligid niyo. ‘Wag bobo ha. The world is a vicious place. It’s frightening, really. Pagpasok ko palang sa jeep iba na yung feeling eh. May nabasa nga ako noon, sabi, “Better paranoid than dead.” I don’t think we would’ve been killed if ever, just hurt, pero still diba? Nakakatakot talaga. Dasal talaga ako ng dasal after nun eh. Woooh grabe talaga yun… :(
Be wary. Be smart. Be alert.
Today was supposedly the second day of periodical exams. However, since went home at 9PM last night, our second day of exams would be on Monday. I have already guessed that we would be doing nothing, so right before I left the house, I grabbed a book (Airman by Eoin Colfer). I’ve read if before but I just wanted to read it again so I brought it. (I don’t remember the story anymore, I just recall that I really loved it when I first read it so I wanted to read it again.) True enough, we really didn’t do anything. When it was around 10AM, we were told that we were supposed to go to UST again today. Instead of dismissing us at 12nn, we were told to go home an hour earlier.
We came back at 1AM and since there was a section having their retreat today, the buses were unavailable. We had to use the school services (jeeps and vans). It was actually my first time to ride the school service because our house is just walking distance. XD When we reached UST, we went to the same place where the concert last night was held. We attended a high mass. It was still about the Philippine Conference on New Evangelization. It was my second time to see Bishop Tagle. The first time was when the Student Council officers went to Paco Church sometime ago. :)
Is the Passing of Light always in High Masses? We once had a high mass in our school and there was also this Passing of Light thing, which amazed me so much but also made me sad because the scene was so pretty and I wasn’t able to take a picture of the great sight. And it rained, so the mood was kinda ruined. I really loved that I had the camera with me this time. The sight was pretty amazing! Even my friend says so. I saved some of the pictures as .RAW so I can edit them and such. And I did. They all looked amazing to me. @_@
There wasn’t much seats left when we arrived, so we were kinda separated and it’s only reasonable that we were also separated when we went outside. We had to walk a short distance to go where they were, and where the vans were. Julia, Kim, and I were walking and we were at the very back of the walking group so we were able to take numerous amount of selfies. ♥ ♥ ♥
It was a fun experience! Although we just attended a mass, it was very different from the usual. Yeay for all of us! <3 (I really loved the Passing of the Light part. Even from the high mass at our school, I loved to hear what the readers were saying. You know.. at the beginning it was very dark, blah blah Jesus is the light… Who will carry it if we don’t?… those stuff. It’s all so interesting.)
Last night, (if you have read my blog posts) I didn’t study that much for the exams. I got home at 6PM and slept at 9PM. I just scanned my notes then went ahead and dawdled. This morning, I actually planned to get up early so I can study. I woke up at 4:30AM, but since I love sleeping, of course I didn’t get up. I continued sleeping and just started my morning routine by 5:45AM. I brought all my books and notebooks and studied when I got to school. Long story short, I was able to study a bit. Thankfully, the exams today were easy, just time-consuming. :)
After that, we went home and went back to school at 1PM so we can go to UST for the catechesis. That is probably the last time all of us will be together in the bus so it was kinda sad. Our school is near to UST so it was just a 20-minute ride, more or less. We had many activities and we discussed a lot. Of course, we didn’t take pictures. We only did when we were nearing the end. We were asked to make a poster about who Jesus is to us.This is what we did:
Patricia did all those. It’s evident that she can draw really well. It’s amazing how she can put pictures in her head into paper. It’s truly remarkable! :) Jesus is our knight in shining armor, savior, idol, best friend, and the focus of our lives. While doing the activity, we were given our merienda from Max’s Corner Bakery. Our dinner (also from Max’s) were given to were expecting to receive dinner, but we were truly surprised to see Max’s! Needless to say, it was very delicious.
Now, I shall tell you the unfortunate/fortunate tale of the camera. Whenever I take a picture, it keeps showing me an error that the lens is not connected to the camera. However, when I press Live View, it shows the scene perfectly, so I thought of putting it in the video mode and trying to take a picture. I worked. The only way I could take a picture is to not use any other setting and if there is enough light source. When we were inside the room doing the activities, it was light enough so taking pictures were okay. The problem was when we got to the —
Rally. It was very difficult when we got to the rally. Since nightfall was slowly being upon us, it was getting darker, which meant that I can’t take pictures anymore. I tried to take pictures using RAW and wanting to just edit them at DPP at home. It didn’t really work. Which meant that I wasn’t really able to use the camera. Too bad, right? I wasn’t able to use the camera that I have with me while I was doing something for the first time. Little did I know that although it was very unfortunate, it would be very useful later in the evening.
Last week, when we were told about this trip to UST, we were informed that we would probably be there ‘til 9PM. I thought that from 2-9PM, we would be having the catechesis. We weren’t really told that we would attend a concert. You can see the ticket right there ^. I actually really like the picture, because I just immediately took a picture when I received my ticket. I wasn’t able to focus it since I was holding the ticket in one hand, and the setting was on Auto since I was using the video mode, but there picture is probably the best one on this blog post. :”>
As I have previously stated, I wasn’t able to use the camera. I thought it was very bad luck. Only when I was able to take pictures of the concert had I realized that it was very fortunate! Since I didn’t use the camera much, the battery is still around 65% so I can still take pictures. I didn’t need light source because all I need to take picture of is the stage, and the rest can stay dark. The moment that I realized the awesomeness of the situation, I was amazed. Hahahaha!
The concert was still kinda related to the topic of the said discussions. The first performances were dances, which were probably just to get us excited for the next performers. There were more singing and dancing and all. It was actually kinda cold inside, and since I was expecting otherwise, I was pleased with the current state. :3
Here is Gretchen Ho, along with a guy whom I forgot the name. They were the hosts of the concert. The Trinitarians were all hyped up when Gretchen Ho appeared. After that, many people performed, including Liezel Garcia, a guy who sang Fix You by Coldplay (among other songs) and Noel Cabangon. Shortly afterwards, we were told that we needed to go home at 8:30PM. Imagine?! Getting home so early? Our school was a mere 15-minute ride away (more or less) and we were supposed to leave that early? Why, other schools were much farther and yet they stayed longer than we did! Unfair, I tell you. I still had fun, though. This day is a lot of fun. <3
I was scrolling through egberts’ tumblr when I saw a post about Neopets and I was like, “Hey, I haven’t logged in there in ages! Why not now?" then I went ahead. I got to the log in page, and I suddenly realized that I’m not actually sure I remember my password correctly. I just typed it in, anyways. Lo and behold - it was the right one! Yeaaaay! Then I got to the bank and then I wanted to withdraw some NPs but then I saw that I put a pin there.
I realized I also forgot the pin, but I took a guess and I was correct in my first try! Hahahaha. And now, I am logged in. :3 Please take note that it is our periodical exams tomorrow ._.
