Because Heidegger Needs to Calm Down

Just a quick entry since Heidegger and Marcel are really giving me headaches.

Would you believe me if I tell you that it’s my first time to actually check the block lists on the day of posting? HAHA! Well yeah, it’s my first time, ever!

I quickly checked the ComTech blocks because I love ComTech freshmen. So much energy from all of them! And I really can’t wait to meet them!

Actually quite sad it still didn’t reach R4. 😦 As much as it’s kinda cool that my batch is the latest one to have an R4, it’s still sad-ish that the batches after us only have until R3.

What also made my day really cool was seeing Rafa and Mike!

Cool that I saw Rafa because he came from his Europe study tour…and I just realized right now I didn’t ask him stuff that might be useful for my JTA-ing! 😐 Next time!

Not posting the only picture I have of his face. It was just so… HAHA! Peace Mike!
FINALLY gonna see him around our campus again! USA pa kasi -.-

To TnT friends, this guy is gonna be in Block TR. He’s a really great guy! Quite the conversationalist, as well!

Because Heidegger Needs to Calm Down

JTA. Don’t Cry Out, Ceasefire

Third week of JTA sem, but it feels like it’s the third month. I know I sound like a broken record but this sem is just so hell. As in it’s really eating up my “me time”. I really have enough time for my extra-curricular involvements, but there are really times when I can’t even just chill and not think about anything. It’s quite sad, really. But it’s alright, I’m still healthy and my grades aren’t suffering whatsoever.

The week was crazy in all aspects. (picture below isn’t relevant at all, but I find it cute!)

Wednesday was the beginning of the wackiest day of the week. Actually, my week started that day. (Daluz took this shot, as well as other pictures with my ugly face)
My OpMan group met up that day and went to the house of Dominic to continue on our paper which was quite comparable to a fusion of the crazy midterm COM12 paper as well as the craziest LS10 pass. Before going though, we ate lunch in Kenny Rogers and while waiting for the driver of Dominic, we saw Mara in all her bubbly glory.

We eventually go to the house of Daluz after waiting for like 2 hours or so. Stayed at his room practically the whole time and swear, the room was filled with restlessness emanating from all of us. HAHA! The picture of Maia is a “before” actually. Had I taken a picture of her after we were doing stuff, it would be so sad, she’d sue me if I posted it here.

Didn’t really go around the house of Daluz, so I took these pictures. Really cute he kept his bag tag! I remember there was a time my mom gave me a bag tag that was ribbon-y. 😐
That day was really stressful but all kinds of awesome. We were there from 2:30 to 11:00PM. We didn’t push through with the everyone sleepover idea anymore. Fun thing that happened: right after we ate dinner, we all rushed fixing our ugly faces and went straight to Power Plant Mall for last minute stuff. It was a very fun experience actually. First time that I ever walked to a mall from a house, first time that I lingered in a mall while it was closing, and first time to stay that late in someone’s house with the need to go back home. Haha! We were productive, to be fair. Just not as much as we expected because a lot of things had to be clarified among ourselves. And it helped. πŸ™‚
(I really love my group: Maia, Dominic, Jade, Iris, CamSee!)

Following day, we were in the eye of the storm phase. Rest the whole day so we could finish the paper when we all got home. Look at Iris, looks so stressed! 😦 But look at her hand, Winnie the Pooh! Haha!

Friday, finally passed the OpMan paper though like 5-10 minutes late. 😦 But we got our sanity back. Really felt guilty I fell asleep! I bet I had the most hours of sleep among my JTA blockmates! 😦 But everything’s done and all we have to do is wait for the pass 1 to be returned and for us to improve.

While waiting for Marketing, we did our WAC. I finished before the girls and took pictures of Β random things…and yes, Jeff and Maia are included. Haha! Such a crazy and cute couple!

That last picture… SWEETNESS.

But I want to end this entry with something very off. Haha! When my mom fetched me last night, we were both craving for something light to eat, we saw this small “resto” named Monsees. The spanish bread and pot pie were really delicious!

and that’s it for week 3!

JTA. So Rough, Baby Baby Baby Baby Baby.

Second week of JTA sem was overwhelming towards the end of it. It was still, overall, a fun week of sorts.

First. Dominic, Gianna and I went to Eastwood for the celebration of the birthday of Domz. It was just a fun gathering of some of us in the block free that time. Really missed Fazoli’s! Domz, Camae, Janine and Justin were there.Second, the meeting with Krista and Josh for ACTM’s 1st GA StratComm plan was really light and not as difficult as I expected it to be. and in a way, I’m kinda scared that maybe we didn’t do mega in-depth, but I’m satisfied with the plan. The phrasing of different parts could’ve been better, but didn’t know how to improve those. Haha!

also cute how the three of us own the old macbook white!

Tuesday, I had a meeting at night. And I’m just so happy that our meetings will just be 6-9PM once a week. I just need to find a way to tell my mom about it. The feeling of being part of the team is still kinda bittersweet and I will further go into it later on. For now, I find comfort in knowing that I’ll be with 2 ComTech friends. Beng and Ingrid!

Wednesday, OpMan meeting the whole day with my groupmates.

Thursday, I was in school 6:30am because we were coding. Sad thing, my 10am class ended up to be a free cut because my prof was sick. During lunch, I wanted to go to Starbucks for the Happy Hour. As we were about to leave JSEC, I saw one of my High School orgmates (and in fact the orghead when we were in Senior Year) who went to Canada. Hi Marvin!We first went to the Starbucks beside Cantina and, as expected, there was this freaking long line so we decided to walk to the one beside Rustan’s. I was quite positive, actually, that there would be barely any line there. And I was right! Haha!

Went back to school and stayed in JSEC. CS175 after which was really fun. I learned new stuff one can do in Photoshop! haha! Finished early so I decided to take pictures of people. Hi Mai and Sarah!When I arrived home I was sick-ish but didn’t tell anyone in the house because that would’ve meant I wouldn’t be able to go to the mini PlanSem.

Friday, CRAZY DAY. Tried to finish Finance but it was just impossible! Will really miss sir Mike! I hope he can be our teacher for Finance, for good.Β That night, I went to a sort of PlanSem. You see, I actually have 3 PlanSems this weekend and I was supposed to be able to go to 2 out of 3. But because I got sick, was only able to go to one. Before anyone can hate on me, the one I went was because it wasn’t out of the way in a sense. It was just there in school so I decided to sleepover and just wake up in time for class. I didn’t want to hassle my mom to fetch me late at night then bring me to school quite early in the morning. So I’m really sorry ASLA and ACTM 😦 Doesn’t mean I love guys and girls any less 😦 The circumstances were just against it.

Saturday morning, woke up early thanks to the phone calls of Gianna and Maia! Sad that Diana had to leave because she has a MEA PlanSem.

Before I left the RecWeek peeps, Charla got someone to take a picture of us. Sadly this isn’t a complete photo.Scared of what’s ahead of me but I really believe that with optimism and faith in God, and a lot of coffee and milk tea, we’ll be able to make a fun fun fun fun you will look forward to the RecWeek event. Prayers for an even more successful one this year please!

Β I attended class after and after that I realized something funky…

the bun of the filet-o-fish burger of McDo looks so odd! Haha! That’s it for this week! πŸ™‚
