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. 🙂
(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  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!

Someday it will lead me back to You

February 18, 2011

I look forward to Fridays for a bunch of reasons. One of which would be how free I am after 11:30 am. I got to do a lot of things that afternoon like I went to Ateneo High School to do NSTP stuff, I watched Mara’s Histo play, binge on JSEC Challenge food and drinks, and the DSLD/ASLA discernment.

When I buy prime lens, I’ll finally be able to take decent indoor shoots even if it’s dark. I like this shot actually since it’s kinda decent. Haha!

the guillotine really looked nice! 

Vien and Mara! I had no picture of them both looking at the camera! 

On my way back from the High School, decided to take a shot of the Church of the Gesu. It’s where the DSLD/ASLA discernment took place!
The experience was really different but at the same time enlightening. I felt like it was very grace-filled, to an extent and I feel fortunate I was able to experience it. Unfortunately, we weren’t complete so we’d have to do a second part another time.

Someday it will lead me back to You

Chinese New Year Eve

Today, my Asian Histo classmates, along with members of the 3 others classes under Ma’am Nazareno, assembled by the SocSci Garden for the China Enrichment Activity. What is this “China Enrichment Activity” you ask? It’s quite simple. All of us who chose this enrichment activity had to choose a historical and significant Chinese figure then dress up today as that character. But it doesn’t end there, we were all given Bingo sheets and we had to form a pattern and it’s not just a matter of asking the person to sign it, we were supposed to place 2 significant details about our character too!

At first, I was like “CRUD! What if I don’t finish this by 1PM?!” Well the thing is, people were free to come and go so it’s by luck and patience to complete a pattern. Thankfully I finished around 11:30am-12nn! I really enjoyed it even if I had to cut COM12 for it. SORRY SIR! I felt bad that I didn’t bring my camera right away because by the time I brought it out, a lot of people left already. Well, here are some of the shots I took though. Haha!

Third as a female Chinese character

Gabi, Third, Lao and Nelson. The Femme Fatale. Haha!

Kyla with her awesome shades.

Third with the R3 HI16 students of Ma’am Nazareno. I can only identify Mara with her very Communist get up, Pam pointing, Benjo with this green top, PatGai looking very Chinese and Kyla with modern twist to her Chinese outfit.

And I shall end this with a picture of the cutest Chinese person I know. ROBINA! (well it’s Robina with her friend. HAHAHA!)
