{Daybook} Life Lately

FIRST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL

  • Most of my classes require alphabetical seating arrangement, which, for all of your information, I really hate. My surname starts with V so yay I get to sit at the back. Ngh.
  • Our professor in Computer hasn’t shown up yet so we’ve been having early Monday dismissals since.
  • I’m taking my last three units of Advance Spanish this semester, which I really am excited about. However, my schedule for that class is Fridays, 6-9 pm. Bummer, right? It’s not only so hard to commute, but also I feel so drained when I get home. Well, you really can’t have it all, can you?
  • I bring packed lunch everyday so I get to save my allowance for other more important things.
  • Indian Literature is killing me. Help!

BLOGGING 101

  • My first-ever Blogging 101 experience has just ended last Friday, August 14. I’m really glad that I came across the DailyPost’s post regarding this year’s blogging 101 courses. Now I can say that somehow my blogging’s improved.
  • I met a lot, and I mean, A  L O T of nice bloggers there. They’ve helped me big time with my blog, with all those feedback that we’ve exchanged on The Commons.
  • Award nominations! I got two, the Liebster and Premio Dardos, which, honestly, I didn’t expect because I was just starting. I truly appreciate the nominations from Anand, Ingrid, and Kate; I don’t know if I’ve thanked you enough for those. Yay!
  • I’ve also registered to Blogging 201, I hope I could keep up.

OTHER STORIES

  • Meh, I have this house-school-house routine once again and I’m not sure if I could have some exciting tales to share anytime soon.
  • Oh, this one’s exciting… I’m a registered voter!!! I turned 18 this year, and earlier this month, I submitted all the requirements to our Commission on Elections and had my bio-metrics registered so I can vote next year. I think this is one of the most important happenings of my life, because finally I will be able to practice my right of suffrage and somehow make a difference by voting the ones that I believe are going to be good for my country. Anyway, the whole process and other story will be in a different blog post. Watch out!

{Blogging 101} Day 11: Make a Prompt Personal — Three Struggles of a Brace-Face

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Satisfaction of a List.”

  1. What color of rubber to choose
    –  Every time that I go to the dentist for my adjustment appointment, my dentist makes me choose what color of my rubber will be. He gives me this big transparent container with all of the colored rubbers sorted by their hue. They go from light to dark, ROYGBIV, pastel, and clear. It is indeed hard since you have to think of how it will be seen through your smile. Once, I chose black as my rubber color of the month and it didn’t look nice since I was in a party and we need flash for taking photos. Your rubber color will either make you or break you.

Liebster Nomination!

Just when I’ve calmed myself down because of the excitement Premio Dardos nomination had caused me, Ingrid of Ingrid on the Grid and Kate of Heart and Harp Strings have nominated me to Liebster Award! Thanks so much, Ingrid and Kate, although I’m not really sure what this is all about. I’ve seen this award on some bloggers before, and I never thought I’d ever be nominated! That’s what I said on my first ever nomination (which, has been updated, btw). These nominations/awards are just overwhelming, they inspire me too continue blogging and be better at it eventually. Thank you!

Premio Dardos Nomination!

Last night, I had my 6 to 9 pm class that really drained my energy. It was too hard to hail a jeepney on the way home, because it was a Payday Friday. When I got home, I decide to check WordPress on my iPad for notifications and go through the Reader. Much to my surprise, Anand of Blabberwockying! nominated me for Premio Dardos Awards! It instantly changed my stressed out mood to an excited one. Thanks so much, Anand, you’ve just been the best!

{Blogging 101} Day 9: Get Inspired By the Neighbors

Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time yesterday to complete the task. I’ve only left comments on three blogs, lacking one more. Anyway, I will make sure to check out more new blogs and leave comments as much as possible. I’m deeply sorry for failing yesterday’s task, hehe, so these are the new blogs I had visited and left my comments on…

{Motivational Monday} First Day of School

This is it! It’s my first day in college junior year and I’m so giddy I don’t even know what to expect. I am certainly going to take my major subjects this year, but aside from that, I don’t know anything anymore. I just hope our professors will be generous enough when it comes to grades, because I need my grades to stay as they are (or better yet, higher!). This Monday’s motivational post is mainly for myself, because I can’t think of any way to calm myself down so I’m typing this early in the morning (it’s 6 am here in the Philippines) and posting this before 10 am. My classes start at 9 and my house is still two jeepneys (a very famous mode of transportation here) away from my school. Although I think you guys could still somehow relate to this if anyone of you is also having their first day, be it school, work, or anything new in your lives.

What Picking Up my Drunken Friend has Taught Me

EOZpjI3oSqKPNnF2S4Tp_Untitled


I’ve never been a fan of drinking alcoholic beverages because it floods your mind with stupidity and insanity, just like what happened to my guy friend. Usually, it’s the guy friend who picks up his drunken girl (notice the space called friendzone here, lol just kidding) friend and bring her home, but in my case, for the very first time in the history of my life, my guy friend got really really drunk and I had to fetch him. According to him, he and some of his friends finished the last three long-neck bottles of rum and beer so they wouldn’t go to waste. Uhm, guys, you could have just taken them home and save them for another sesh some other time.

{Blogging 101} Day 1: Who are you and why are you here?

Hello, world! I used to “blog” on a different platform two or three years ago, but just last month I decided to get back on track with WordPress. I decided to start a blog again because I actually needed to practice writing for my future courses. Also, I never kept my blog private, because I always liked how other people could give me their insights and advice regarding the topic that I had just written. Although my whole site is going to contain personal stuff, I still make sure that readers will still learn from it and just like what mentioned, I like that they could give me their opinions.
