Hello hello hello this is gon be a recap of what has happened to me for the past few weeks (including my birthday week) + a playlist 😉
BIRTHDAY WEEKEND // Like I mentioned in my last post, I spent 3 days in Manila to celebrate my birthday. I had my Kenny Rogers fix, a dose of the food court at SM Aura and finally trying Tim Ho Wan (I get the hype for their pork buns now. I am one of them now who will continue to hype it up.)
I was quite lucky because most of the clothing stores I love were on sale. I ended up getting a few pieces and of course my new found love, Superga. I got another pair of Superga’s but this time it was the classic black pair. The first one that I got last January was in the pure Bordeaux color. I was planning on investing already on a Pandora but I felt like it wasn’t time yet. Maybe in a few months hehez 😉
TYPHOON ADVENTURE // 2 typhoons hit my city on the last week of July. And it was intense. I even had to go out during the landfall of the most recent one because it was my nephew’s 7th birthday. Being wet is an understatement. I was soaked, shivering and just not the most happy camper. Though I love the rainy season, I just remembered how it’s gonna be such a hassle to get to Point A to Point B especially that I have to commute.
SENIOR YEAR // Okay I really don’t want to get into detail about the enrollment process that I went through a few days ago. I’m extra glad this would (hopefully) be the last 1st sem enrollment I’ll ever experience. At first, I only had 15 units out of the required 21 because Tax closed and according to some, apparently they only opened 2 classes out of the 5 that they were supposed to offer this sem. Anyway, I had to go back last Friday to get Tax. I was sooo nervous because I thought I wasn’t gonna get it but fortunately I did. (Para akong nabunutan ng tinik after seeing the pink withdrawal/adding form!!!) Surely, what is for you will not pass you 😉
My schedule this sem is messy as in solid but then again so is my life. I’m just really glad to get Tax and not having to worry about being delayed. I had to advance my Law 5 tho because the other Law subject that I was gonna get closed 🙂 But ugh okay anyway I’m just really grateful I got the max units this sem.
Anyway I cannot believe I’m already a senior. A COLLEGE SENIOR. Remember when I was just talking about being a senior high school wow (that’s documented on this blog check out my 2013 posts hahaha) Just yesterday, I accessed my high school portal and I’m shocked it still works and my ID number is stored on this laptop. I miss the kind of grades I used to get, maaan. I miss high school also but I don’t really wish to go back even though life was a lot simpler back then. Hahahaha. Gosh I hope I do well for this last full year. I was just talking to my friend last night and I was telling him na “Push lang ng push”. HAHAHAHA. I guess that’s the mantra, friends. “PUSH LANG NG PUSH”.
I don’t really know what to feel now I’m a senior. Umm ugh idk it’s still not sinking in!!! I’m pretty sure I’ll get the hang of college stress now because of all the battles I faced and battle scars I still have from my junior year.
MOVIE MARATHON // Sharing you some of my faves from the movies I watched. Baby Driver was AAAHHH-mazing. Ansel Elgort plays Baby HAHAHA like the name fits him well. I also watched some 80’s and 90’s Pinoy movies, specifically the Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion movies, all 9 of them. I really do hope their reunion movie pushes through. If it doesn’t, I swear I will be the one to write, direct and produce their reunion movie. I also watched coming of age films during that era and gurl I was shooketh to the core. The movies that were released those times were just so raw, and it was so different because technology was so different. It makes you think how they survived without WIFI. Simpler timez, fosho.
In other news, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is finally gonna be a movie!!! I’m still trying to love the cast but because Jenny Han is super hands-on, I’m just gonna trust her. I believe she’s doing everything she can to make her masterpiece still a masterpiece, only in film form.
