#122: It's almost August!

If my title makes you think I am somehow disappointed of this fact, think again. LOL. I am super excited for this month to arrive, mainly because so many things are going to happen!

1. Midterms.

Yes, the first week of the month is scheduled for our midterms, which is 20% of our grade this semester. It's no pressure really, but of course, it's a great feeling to be able to be on top of the class right? I'm really trying my best to always have high grades and hopefully be included in the PL or DL at the end of the sem. :)

2. Oraa vacation.

The Oraa's are my cousins. And yes, they hail from the UK. Haha. I'm really itching to talk to them and really be with them in the flesh because it's been years, YEARS, since we were together. I hope we won't have any awkward firsts when they arrive! ;P I can immediately think of ways to hang out with them, especially AJ, that cute doll! :D

3. Org Activities.

As I aforementioned, I am a member of a few clubs at school, and both have a lot of activities planned for the month. Let's start with ALA.
ALA has three planned events, namely, Idea Generation Seminar, Paper Cup Session, and the TBA (Team Building Activity). I've already confirmed by attendance in the first event, but I'm still unsure with the last two. :( Hope I can decide soon though.

The other club is SSG. As a member of the communications department, I was tasked to make a teaser (second wave) for the INTRAMS also this August. I haven't started it yet, but I already have an idea. The thing is, what I plan to draw is often not what comes out on the paper. I wonder why? Poor concept perhaps?

So there.

Adios! :D I'll make another post after this one.

#121: So much has passed!

How long has it been since I made my last real, fruitful, sensible blog post? Not in a while that's for sure. But hey, you guys can't blame me if I no longer have enough time to update this blog of mine! College life is busier (but more fun) than I expected it to be. I am having the time of my life.

So right now, there's a tropical storm in the Philippines, Bagyong Juaning. When I woke up this morning, I had a gut feeling that classes would be cancelled due to the harsh weather but still, I woke early and started texting all my classmates, asking if they would be going to school today. No one replied. Perhaps they were still asleep, I concluded, and this was later verified when those people I texted sent a group message saying they just woke up at 10 a.m. Wow.
My mom kept assuring me that there would be no classes. I was starting to panic when no one replied, and thankfully, our 24-hour internet still hadn't expired. Navigating to the FB ADNU-SSG page, I realized that all my worrying was for nothing. Just minutes after logging in, the moderators posted an official message from our University President stating that classes are suspended. I was relieved as hell.

Then, in about an hour, another update appeared on my Facebook feed. "Dress Up day is cancelled. We can't schedule it for next week either because its Midterms week. Keep posted for updates." Okay, that wasn't exactly how the message was posted, but you get the idea. The Dress Up Day was scheduled for tomorrow, July 27 (btw, DUD is when you dress up in a corporate attire, much like how you would dress up for work). We were all relieved and my classmates posted their reactions on our group page. *sigh. Such happenings. :)

Apart from that, the internet was surprisingly fast unlike the other days. Literally faster. :) Oh, and I am also so relieved to not have classes today because I'm still not prepared for the lessons. Yes, our teachers are proving to be evil (LOL).

So yeah. I guess that's all for now aye?
Maybe I can squeeze in more blogging time in the future.

#120: Uni Overload!

College, in general, is a great experience. It's where you get to do what you are passionate about and eventually be that someone you've always aspired to become. I agree with this 100%, though lately, university life is proving to be more serious than fun.

No, it's not because I don't like my subjects or my classmates; it's due to the pressures around me to be the best and excel, to please and not to disappoint. With so many things and events going on which require my attention,  I'm finding it hard to distribute my abilities and time. As of now, I am a bonafide member of the Ateneo's Supreme Student Government (SSG) as a TUG constituent of the Communications department. So far, I have met 9 of our 10 members, including the Department Head and the PIO (I was surprised that this dep't didn't have a lot of members). I have been tasked to do an advertisement/poster for the ID campaign, which seeks to urge Ateneans to wear their ID's even after they pass through the security guard at the gate. I can feel the pressure, but I want to prove my worth as a member. If I don't do a great job with the poster, I doubt they'll give me future similar projects. I have fear of rejection, and as much as possible, I'd hate to experience this as early as now.

I also have two more preliminary exams next week, Computer and Mathematics. :D Pressures.

As usual, gtg. :)
Tell you more next time...
