For The Love of Giraffes

So the narcissistic me comes in and made my best bud, Pj, as my official photographer for the day. Especially when I'm out, I love taking a bunch of ootds. Like, it's always a must for me. I don't have much clothes unlike the average teenage girl, so my second wardrobe is my brother's wardrobe.
I am sucker for the idea of becoming a celebrity. Like, it's my dream. So when I saw these pictures, I went all psycho and marveled at my beauty (That's the narcissism talking again). 
Yes, that tank top is my brother's. That was what he wore during his infamous coronation night of becoming the "Adam Of The Night".

So since, I have one whole week to go before another pile of school works will be slammed to my face, I decided to make the most out of it by blogging. Yes, that's right. Well, this thought have probably sprouted from the idea that I don't want to be unproductive for the whole week. School has pretty much made me this way. My best bud, Charles, was right. I kinda miss the feeling of not doing anything.

Finally, it's the break we've all been waiting for. SEMESTRAL BREAK. After all the mind-bending quizzes and departmental exams, and friendship-jeopardizing projects, this semester has finally come to an end and what better way to celebrate than having a pool party with my blockmates. I have set aside all my personal drama and went on with the fun. It was my kind of release and my kind of getaway (well, at least for awhile).
Pool time in Villa Teresita. Had the same venue during my summer outing with my 1st year blockmates, but what the heck, I still had fun.

Of course, a party wouldn't be complete without the world's most reknown "roasted pig" or as we all like to call it "Lechon Baboy".
We also had a chocolate fountain which didn't quite function. I was so looking forward for that one. *sobs*
And oh, how I love those blueberry cheesecakes (by Sir Ced). I want more! So sir, if you happen to read this, please do make another one for me :))
On the same day, we made a personalized pillow for our two most inspirational mentors, Sir Joey Echivarria and Sir Cedric Naranjo.
Nonstop selfies in the pool with Miss Grace Cejudo. Lovin' her bikini by the way.
Sir Ced taking a ride down the pool. He was having the time of his life!
And lastly, a group picture to end a memorable day!

Next semester, I am "mighty positive" (as sir Joey would say it) that I won't be with these guys anymore. For sure, they will be having their own blockmates for the second semester, and some are even going to be in the pilot class, but one thing is for sure, they will remain to be in my heart. I know, it sounds pretty corny and cheesy for your taste, but I don't know I had a blast. They made my 1st semester as a third year BSA student less stressful. I hope and pray that eventually, we will all become CPAs one day. Love you, guys.

Weddings and Renewals

"The magic is not in getting married, but it is in STAYING MARRIED." (quoted from the movie, The Baggage Claim)

Exemplified by their 45 years in marriage, my grandparents have proven that love can last a lifetime. This is a definite milestone for every couple in the 21st century. Amidst the rampant divorce and annulment cases, these two lovebirds have shown everyone in attendance that true love doesn't only happen in fairy tales. Sure, the journey along those 45 years is not always rainbows and butterflies. Sure, it's not always going to be hugs and kisses and all the sweet nothings. At some point, we mature and become our own selves, but it's great that my grandparents' growth was by each other's sides.
Attended by families and friends, the entire affair last September 27, 2014 was a celebration we surely can take pointers from. From their lovestory to the secrets of being married for so long, they've shared every bit of detail about themselves that will always want us to have the kind of relationship they are having.



Because of the never-ending outputs/projects for Finals, I've been M.I.A for the past few weeks. I actually made a covenant to myself after posting the "Responsible Facebook Usage" on Tumblr. My thoughts were, since I will be having very hectic days for the Finals, it is but timely for me to apply my words and not be a hypocrite. But all these no Facebook, no Internet agreement to myself has left me to the bottom pit of my social network. I guess, this is the price I have to pay if I want to fulfill a promising career. On a lighter note... well, I am trying to think of a much much lighter thought to weigh out a little of these worries, but I just can't. I think every 3rd year BSA Student - well, every 3rd year student, in general - would agree that this is the most tedious year and we're not even finished yet. We're still on the other half of this roller coaster. God forbid that next semester will be worst.

I hope you're having a great Finals.

Of Being Alone

23 Things Only People Who Love Spending Time Alone Will Understand

I saw this post lately on Facebook by a friend, and most of the things listed are totally me. Maybe not all. But most. And I'd like to mention the following:
#1 - A weekend in which you have no plans, no responsibilities, and nowhere at all to be, ranks as one of the best weekends you’ll ever have. - I mean, not that I'm antisocial or anything. There are really those weekends when I just want to be alone.
#3 - A good album, book, or television show can keep your attention far longer than any party, club, or bar could. - CSI, Grimm, #Richkids of Beverly Hills, Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Big Bang Theory, Friends. I can go on and on and on. I love watching tv shows. Probably my favorite pasttime if you ask me.
#5 -  There is nothing more exciting than planning a long, solo road trip, because you know you’re going to be able to think your thoughts, listen to your music, and play your audiobooks for hours and hours on end. Is there anything better? - Even just the though of it is so relaxing.
#6 - When people say they can’t eat alone at a restaurant, you’re like, really? That’s one of life’s simple pleasures! Food? Good. A book? Good. No conversation whatsoever? Perfect. - Already in my bucketlist.
#15 - You are an observer –watching and studying people’s behavior– and, funny enough, are usually quite well-liked, which can serve to be a problem considering how much time you want to spend by yourself. - You can't even fathom the depth of my thoughts when I observe the people around me. I remember once when I was eating alone in a fastfood restaurant, and all the creative words and ideas just come to my head.
#16 - A full day by yourself makes you feel more you than anything at all. - THIS! LIKE, THIS, OMG!
#17 - If you are not thinking about life’s big questions, you must be dead. - Every time I'm alone, there are these random thoughts inside my head that when I arrive home, all of them, gone.
#22 - Traveling to a new place by yourself (even if the new place is only ten miles away) is your idea of a great time. You are always either planning a solo adventure, going on a solo adventure, or coming back from one. Experiencing the world through your own eyes without anybody else’s opinion is not just a desire, it’s an essential need of yours. - Not that I don't want to be with anyone on a long vacation trip, I just like to explore the world alone. It's calming for me. More time to think. More time to hear myself mumble on the greatness of the world I'm in.
