I haven't been able to update for a looooong time since our computer sort of had a breakdown and it wouldn't run so I had to rent a computer for the last few days. But unfortunately, blogger didn't wanna load on it. :(
Anyway, I'm back! :) It's summer and I can blog all I want. :D
I really don't know if I should study for APE or what. It's this test or tests that you have to take in order to know if you can skip some of your subjects and move to the next subject in line. (Right, like I'll pass any of them.)
Oh, and I'm back in elbi! :) Just came home last night, and I found out that my uncle and aunt decided to adopt a baby girl! I haven't seen her yet but I'd be delighted to. Anyway, I'm going back to Manila on tuesday for personal reasons. But I'll be coming back the next day.
I'm really excited about college.
And I'm kinda nervous at the same time, which I think is weird. Is that weird? But I like to think it's normal. :D I'm excited about the no uniform thing, how I'm free to color my hair and all that. I'm also excited about meeting my blockmates. (I already searched some on facebook, I didn't add them, though :D) But I'm nervous about how I can't be lazy anymore. I can't just sleep around or forget to do my schoolwork because the next four years of my life is what's gonna determine my future. It's pretty scary when I think of the responsibility. My friend said, "Sa UP Manila mo pa balak magbulakbol! San ka pupulutin nyan?" Oh, well. :)
And finally, I'M OFFICIALLY A MANILA SCIENCE HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNA! :) I graduated last April 3. At first I thought I wasn't gonna cry but then everyone started crying and hugginh each other and they were playing God Gave Me You so I cried, too. But it felt right. I mean, I suddenly realized that I was surrounded by the people who've been there for me for everything and to think that I may not be seeing them for a long time was quite unbearable. But I really love the fact that most of my classmates are gonna study in Manila so we still get the chance to see each other. I like to think that someday we'll all meet again. Someday...
Anyway, here's a picture from graduation:
This was before the graduation started so we were still pretty happy and naive to the fact that we would be bawling our eyes out in the next few hours. Hihi :>
I don't know if I should talk about the graduation ball because there's really not much to talk about. It was pretty boring, actually. Here are some pictures, though:
There you go. Not much to see, either. :) I guess the best part about the grad ball was that we were still given a chance to be complete as a batch. (Many were absent, though :|) Oh, and I got to hang out with my friends. :D HAHAHA
So, should I end this here?
Lastly, tipid tips I learned:
- You can get your nails done by yourself ----- with little to lots of patience, depending on how good you are. :) I was pretty excited to have a manicure since it's not against the rules anymore. My cousin gave me a set of nail polish and nail art last Christmas, and voila! I was able to do my own nails. So there, you've got a picture. The quality's low, though. Sorry. (Yeah, as if anyone's reading this. lalala)
- You don't need to spend a thousand bucks for hair color ------- I got mine for free! Okay, no, not really free. It's only free because my mom bought it. HAHA. But I wanna let you know that it cost my mom only 25 pesos! Yup. :) It's not real hair color, though. It's just henna and it'll probably wash off in two weeks. Let's do the math: If a hair color you get in the salon lasts for, um, 6 months. Then that's 24 weeks all in all. But since the henna lasts for 2 weeks, then you'll only spend 25 every other week. So 25 x 12 = 300! See, :) Much much cheaper. But don't do this if you think you're gonna mess up or if you're too lazy to do it yourself. HAHA.
- There are a lot of really cheap yet good quality clothes out there -------- if you know where to look. Now I'm not talking about a designer dress look-a-like that you can get in Forever 21 for only 2000. NO. I'm actually talking about a very cute pink sweater I bought at a relief shop last Tuesday. It only cost me 15 pesos! :) I checked it and it has zero stains, holes, etc. I know a lot are grossed out by shopping at places like that. But hey, if it's just as good as a brand new one, why not? Just wash it before you use it.
Okay, so that's all. :) Tagging this as college life. OMG I'm really excited. :>
