Cheap dinner & good company

It has been a long time since I posted something relevant. I’ve been pretty busy with a number of stuff (UAAP work, #BarcodeMNL & school. Whew!) so blogging is in somehow at the bottom–if not, in the middle–of my priority list, but it is still in the list. Haha! So now, here I am posting something about a spontaneous date with my bestfriend. ❤ What I love most about this night was that she was pretty patient with my endless stories about Wesley, Phil and Ted of Wong Fu Productions. Hahaha! 🙂 If you follow me on Twitter you’d now that I’m in love with them and Ted Fu (my fave!) tweeted me back. Yey

Sooooo, today was the start of my preliminary examination and I had four consecutive exams to attend to and I can honestly tell you it was very exhausting. I thank God that Joanne was free tonight so we were able to just hang out. We ate at McDonalds for dinner ❤ Then after that, we swung by my house to lend her my copy of Ramon Bautista’s Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo.

Yeahp, I finally bought that and I was so happy because it included a notebook! If you knew me, you’d know I love papers. All kinds of papers! Haha 🙂 And yes, the background was UAAP volleyball. I just wanted to do something ironic. 😛 Anyway, so while we were walking to my house, Joanne spotted this cool lighting on a door next to my house, so we decided to experiment (what we do best holla). It came out pretty good! I think….. Lol thank you to my HP camera cos Joanne forgot hers. 😦 Sad.

I didn’t change the color much cos I loved the soft tone effect it had + on the last photo, we looked whiter than our usual skin tone. Hihi With regards to my out fit, I didn’t really do anything (obviously) cos when I got home from school, I threw on anything within reach, sadly. 😦 but I still liked it since it’s just kind of a laid-back spontaneous nearby dinner.

I’ll end this post with a cover of The Power of Love by Gabrielle Aplin. Joanne has been raving about this since the start of our dinner. Lol

Throwback

I’ve noticed that there have been a lot of tweeting photos from the past and calling it as ‘throwback’. It inspired me to visit my multiply site and throwback (well, annoy people with ugly and awkward photos).

I’ll be posting my fave photos! Lol suck it, friends.

 

 

There are people here that I haven’t been in touch for a long time. I may or may not be holding my cell right now and dialing their numbers.

Isolation Area

Hey, don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate being isolated nor rebel against my parent’s for keeping me close to home but it definitely gets tiring when you’re just a 5-minute walk or a 15-minute car ride from school.

I started studying around 3 years old at a school located inside or village in Pasig. It was only a short walk and my mum would drop me off or pick me up before and after school. That was pretty convenient then.

Late in my elementary years, I transferred to another school which is incidentally in another village–it’s in Cainta, Rizal though. Just minutes away from my house, nonetheless. My dad would still drop me off and a school bus will bring me back home. Some people would say I was spoiled but I don’t think I am. My parents were simply just careful (HAHAHA As if we were rich!!!). In the fifth grade, I wanted to go out alone or with friends. I started telling the school bus driver to just bring home my school bag and I’d commute alone later then I’ll go to the mall. My mum would almost get a heart attack when I do this, while my dad would get all red. I never took the warnings and the ‘bibingo ka na sa akin’ from them seriously because I know they would never hit me.

High school, we moved to the south. I entered St. Paul College Paranaque and for four years, I’ve been back-and-forth from my house to school via another school service. Although, this time around my mum was more lenient.

First year in college, I wanted to go to UST but my mother was, as usual, frightened of the fact that there are a lot of bad people in Manila so she told me to got to San Beda Alabang instead. One ride from my house.

Second year, I wanted to study in Manila. My mum threw fits when she learned I enrolled in National University but got over it eventually and understood that I just wanted to widen my view on other things and experience some more things.

Right now, I just recovered from fever (prolly because of the long travel to school) but I’m enjoying every bit of my freedom. Not too much though!

Confession: Friendships

Contrary to what other people believe, I do not make friends easily. Some people think that socializing for me is simple as 1 + 1 but I tell you, it’s not.

It’s actually ‘what is the derivative of 487 to an English major’ (PS I am now taking up English hahaha) level of difficulty. I think of what to say, it takes me at least 2 minutes to think since it depends on what the person looks like and at least six times to practice it in my head. Lastly, if I can actually follow through (That’s basketball lingo for you!) When I’m about to say it though, these are the common things I think about–

“Will I sound stupid?”

“Will I look stupid?”

“Am I stupid for doing this?”

“What if s/he doesn’t want to be friends with me?”

“Do I look okay?”

“Is this the right time to make friends?”

“Why am I taking so long inside my head?”

I remember one time, when I was a freshman in St. Paul, I sat inside my classroom with no one to talk to, no friends whatsoever then I was suddenly sitting beside a pretty girl (charaught! I forgot how I ended up sitting with Bunts. Hi, Roxanne!! AdHoc soon!!! :>) Inside my head, my brain was searching for files on how to communicate and socialize–I decided to count to three and introduce myself. We ended up turning to face each other at the same time and surprising ourselves. One of the best moments in my whole stay in St. Paul (that’s a lot to say I’ve studied there for 4 years!). In the end, she stayed one of my friends in high school.

In college though, I have realized that I should initiate any form of communication for friendship because they’re important (but not too important.) because you’ll more likely to need a companion for the rest of your stay in your university.
