The past week had been uneventful. I actually consider it the laziest one so far this year. I wasn’t sure if it’s some kind of a reward I gave myself for my nonstop (woah there haha) studying from June 2013 until May 2014. By nonstop, I mean having very limited breaks in between the first, second and summer terms. (Wait, labo. Hahaha!)

Since UP implemented the academic calendar shift (effective this year), we’ve enjoyed four months of vacation! Imagine four months of unlimited television shows and series, korean dramas, and novels if I didn’t enroll for summer term? What a bum life. (Now I can’t believe I regretted not enrolling for the midyear term! What happened to my four months? I should’ve studied from April to July instead of April to May! Hahaha.)

The next couple of weeks will really be busy for me. I still have a lot of things to take care of (e.g. first sem schedule + enrollment, work, pad/boarding house matters, meetings + dry run for the race/tour, the actual race/tour for the incoming UPD freshies who were also LICS alumni, orientation/tour for the LICS UPCAT takers this year) sigh. You go, self. I hope I can finish everything that needs to be done before the academic year starts! InshaAllah.

Time really flies so fast. One day it’s just starting, next thing we know we’re already nearing the end of Ramadhan. (I’ll miss you though huhu.) I’m a day or two away from completing this year’s Ramadhan, InshaAllah. And I can’t be more proud of myself for a job well done. Well you see, I haven’t been able to complete it for two or three years already, so it’s really a big thing for me. Yay, self! Alhamdulillah! :) :) :)

On a completely different note, I’ve finally owned my Flickr username! I had problems with this before (I even emailed the helpdesk) but good thing it’s okay now. :) Anyway, I’ll be uploading more photos on my Flickr account, so if you want to see more, please follow me. Thank you! :)

Feel free to leave a message on my ask box! You could ask me about anything, and I’ll try to answer and help you to the best of my ability.

Have a great week, loves! >:)<

Hi, I have a new column. It’s called Hashtag Throwback. All my throwback entries will be filed and stored in this category. :)

Throwback to Academic Year 2012-2013. January — it’s one of the most important months in a student’s last year in high school. It’s especially one of the really memorable ones. Or at least for me.

Side story: Fourth Year - Saint Francis. I don’t think I’ll ever forget those four words. Those were written in all of my quiz/exam papers, notebooks, books, sit-upon, and my identification card (which I misplaced or something huhu). Since our first week as seniors, we were always scolded by our adviser and subject teachers. I wasn’t really aware that we have to be very close to being perfect. Our Economics teacher always tells us that being the pilot section of the batch, we have to leave something that will always be ours to take after we graduate. (I hope I got my point across, no matter how ironic that sentence seems.) We have to own something. Our legacy. And we actually did. Our section, no matter how divided we sometimes tend to be, won a number of school competitions. We bagged different awards. And even though we had different circles, we know that in every school contest, we have to go as one group. We were rivals in terms of academics, but I think deep inside we all considered us one happy and competitive team.
Its been two years. If only we can all go back and spend more time with one another, we would. But we can’t. As I’ve said in one of my old entries, sometimes we just have to let go and move on. There will always be those times when we reminisce and miss our families and friends, but bear in mind that we have no way of going back to the old days. The least we can do is to have a constant communication with our loved ones. And then we can get through.

I may have forgotten some parts of the retreat but I know for sure that it’s one life-changing experience. And I cried buckets. I kind of think that a big part of my life could’ve been missed if I didn’t come.
I don’t have photos during the activities because we weren’t allowed to bring out our cameras. We were only given time for photos right before leaving the place. So without further ado, I present them to you.

Saint Francis!!! I miss you, Francisters!!! ♥ See you all soon, please? >:)<
