Boredom kills. Thank God for internet at Berchmans. I swear, I don’t know how my sister excelled so much with her 5 year MBA in Economics. Everytime I get in this classroom, my eyes/brain automatically shut down. Maybe its because I have to get up at 5AM every Tuesday and Thursday. Economics takes the toll, this being my last class and all. But then again, maybe its not me at all. *cough* boring teacher *cough*
Actually, I took this picture during Filipino class, because we all had to watch some Ifugao movie that I didn’t understand at all. I really wish I was proficient in Filipino. It’s such a poetic language. Unfortunately (or not) I was born and raised in lovely Cebu and therefore learned the rugis Cebuano language instead. Cebu-filipino sucks, so don’t ask me if they taught it at school or not. Cebuano is a beautiful language too, I think. Saying things in Cebuano makes the statement so much stronger/funnier/crazier. I realized this when I moved to Manila for college, and saw the completely different kind of humor people have here. It’s not that funny (of course, love your own), but it’s still worth a few cheers. What I hate the most though is when people from Manila make fun of Cebuano, by saying we pronounce english words with a terrible accent. HELLO, please listen to yourselves! English isn’t supposed to sound like a song either! Okay sorry, enough hate for the day. Redemption: I love Manila, please don’t hate me. :}
My teacher is still talking to herself. It’s been 53 minutes. TIME MOVE FASTER, PLEASE.
found a really nasty search engine term again. really really gross. THIS BETTER NOT BE YOU, GIAN!
*edit: okay, I found out that it really WAS Gian. I’m very relieved and also, very pissed!
1:31 AM. I am on break from microeco. Short recap run:
January 10: No time for planning equates to a simple no frills birthday dinner with only very little of what I originally had in mind.
Here’s me dancing to my birthday song, which they happened to play through the restaurant speakers for the merriment of all diners.What to do when you’re caught in a spotlight situation? Make the most of it. haha. Also, see Mike happily cheering for me on the side lines. <3 such a happy little boy haha.
Meet my sweet cavalry of men in red.
and some more who don’t believe in the power of color.
And my gorgeous mum, who flew all the way here to be with me. <3
January 11: Just for kicks, see what I found today along Katipunan. A tough guy garbed in orange and biker shades, in a vehicle adorned with your favorite Sanrio pals. Pretty interesting and also pretty freaky. Wonder what the story behind this guy is.
Okay, back to studying. For some reason, the last two months always seem to be the hardest. Can’t wait to finish school!
My first week back has been crazy. I’ve hardly had enough time to finish everything I need to accomplish, much less time for myself. Having hectic schedules are fine from time to time, but having one that lasts 2 months is just plain destructive. Up until yesterday, I totally forgot that tomorrow is the big day. Oh yes, the big two zero. Didn’t even have time to think about that!
January used to be a month of happiness, birthday months usually are for the celebrant. This year, however, all of us are just out-of-it. Forget the party preparations, heck, forget the party all together. We have bigger fish to fry. Turning a year older will just have to wait. (Ha, I wish!) So… time goes on without waiting for us, the world moves on without the big celebrations we imagined. Sorry to the people who got hyped up about it, and no, you were not un-invited, there is just NO party.
Anyway, Happy Birthday to my co-january’s!
Sheens for the 3rd,
Sandz for the 7th,
and of course, Kat for the 10th, just like me.
I hope we all get a good one, in spite of the bad timing! Our last year together, girls! (except Sandie of course haha) I will miss all of you like hell, and I hope you do get to visit. ( I say YOU because there is no way in hell i’m flying to Sheens’ place hahaha)
Happy Birthday, Loves!
