Talking about myself being a Marketing Manager of our org’s major project, I cannot begin to explain my feelings. This has begun October last year and I have been working on it since first week of November.
I am not complaining about my task though it’s eating a fraction of my time. What I am trying to say is some people try to be demanding. Again, I am not talking of my org mates, I am talking of the contact person in-charge. I do not really know what to feel - anger, annoyance etc. They demand of what is impossible to deliver to them.
I know, I know. I am no one to complain but the demands are stressing me out. I am now looking on the brighter sides of things. We will definitely reap once it came successful.
On a different note, we have no classes for today. Happy Feast Day, St. Thomas Aquinas!
AB Students aren’t “petiks”.
Excuse me to the one who said that on Twitter. No college/faculty is “petiks”. Everyone in the university works really hard, puts a lot of effort to what he or she’s doing. To the one who said that, it seems that “sa AB petiks” merely because of our schedule. Yes, our schedule is only half of a day but the works given to us are not easy. Bear that in your mind, guy on Twitter. I’m sorry, I got annoyed. I think most of ArtLets got offended.
A Little Bit of Disappointment
First college year and 2nd sem is over. I can finally say that my summer has just started officially. Grades has just been released a couple of minutes ago. I was freaking nervous because I didn’t wanna see my Math grade. Literally, my hands were shaking and I was pointing the wrong link at myUste. So anyway, with all the courage, I clicked “grades” and the first thing I looked for was my Math grade. C’moon, I passed Math. I deserve the grade I’ve got in this subject. Since I’m not really good in Math, I have low grade. I hurriedly texted my mom and told her about it. I never knew this thing even before.There was one instance when I was in the second floor of St. Raymund’s Building looking for summer classes schedule. That shows how pessimistic I am.
On the other hand, I’m quite disappointed with what I’ve got. Well, if I just analyze it one by one, I can say, I deserve those grades. But hell, I did everything to get good grades in some of my subjects and still got grades that I do not deserve.
All I wanna do now is to think of the brighter side of things. I know, everything happens for a reason. Teachers/professors give us grades that we deserve. Grades are just merely the reflection of what we do on his/her class. One should always be thankful of what he’s got. Just always remember, view things in different perspective, in a positive side. Maybe the next acad year, we will definitely get grades higher than we expect.
Week in bullet:
As usual, March is the most stressful month for us. We have to meet the deadline of submission - documentary, paper works, powerpoint presentation, interview etc.
- Right after PE class, Nahum and I gulped on some milk tea.
- Got annoyed with my battery life. Went to Greenhills alone to have it checked. And I got back to our dorm at around 7pm.
- Traffic will always be a pet-peeve.
- Made a 15 slide presentation for LM. We interviewed Toyota Quezon Ave. HR manager and her assistants. Well, this is gonna be our world. Lol
- Had a midnight snack with Tita last March 7 before she left for Europe.
- Woke up early at 6am (was about to wake up at 7) since I had to say goodbye and the likes.
- I was so annoyed with the library-mgmt itself. I really didn’t get the point of not allowing students to borrow books from the LIB during finals. Good thing, Kuya Jay was there and he borrowed a book from Sir Baron - former dean of AB. Correct me if I’m wrong. Hehe
- Went straight to Forbes Place to make our documentary. Translate, put subtitles and so on.
- Have read “Batong Bahay” by Sir Clarence Batan. It’s good to know that he’s from our place. Proud Rizaleno here! Hehe. For the record, he’s a sociology professor in AB. He’s my Tita’s friend.
- Had my 9360 updated to its latest software. Battery life has expanded. TYL!
Not in the mood to write everything in paragraph. Hehe. So anyway, I’ve been so very busy these days. Usually, I go back to our dorm right after class which is at 1pm everyday. But unfortunately, I always got at around 4 pm because of the meetings, shooting, practices, interview. Hayy, I can’t wait for this month to end.
Fortunately, we still have a week for our regular classes and week after this is our finals. Good luck to each and everyone of us! Love.
Neocentennial celebration was the most awaited event of the year in the University, I guess. Happy 401!
Since the Globe signal was traffic yesterday,I was unable to contact my block mates. I was too lazy to attend the 40k voices. But I suddenly remembered that there would be a Eucharistic Celebration at 4:30 pm. So we hurriedly went inside the campus. I was with my dorm mates, instead.
Actually, we were not really scheduled to attend 40k voices. And because of the hassle thingy like walking from grandstand to our dorm in Dapitan, we decided to stay instead in the field. If we wouldn’t join 40k Voices, we might fail to witness the fireworks display.
The most breathtaking part was the lighting of candles. Everyone was singing the UST Hymn.
It feels so good to be a Thomasian.
Right after that part, the 40,000 voices took place. We sang 6 songs and that was so fun. It was my first time to sing together with thousands of Thomasians. And after the 40k voices, the countdown for fireworks began.
We really didn’t know where to look up. The first display started in the Arch of the Centuries. It stopped for a minute then showed up in the Main Bldg. The fireworks covered the sky last night.
Last night’s fireworks was beyond amazing. I’m a proud Thomasian. 500k was worth it. Lol
Prime: The Better Life Project
Ateneo Psych, DLSU Psych, UP Behavioral Studies and UST Behavioral Science in one party. It’s a super duper late post. It happened one week back. This was last January 13 at Amber Ultra Lounge, The Fort. I was with my girl friends and some block mates. So, let the pictures do the talking.
Photobooth pictures. The first part of the party was kinda boring. We just decided to spend some time at the photobooth.
So Aisha and I were the black blazer girls that time. Lol
After the photobooth stuff, we went out because it was really getting boring with each passing time. However, when Patrick, BesSoc Pres, told us that we were allowed to drink, we got in and party harder. There was an over flowing drinks. In the first place, I thought I paid for nothing. But when we got lots of drinks, it was really worth the money and fun, though tiring.
HIATUS FOR A WEEK.
Since I’ll be back now in Manila and our dorm has no internet connection, I’ll be on a hiatus for a week. Hell yea, this really sucks. I’ll focus more on my studies now. Ciao!
I’m gonna miss the place for a month. First semester is finally over and here comes the boring days, semestral break.
Now’s the time to represent my school. Taken by Kenneth using my camera. Well, PE class just ended. I just got a 1.5 grade since I had an absent. That’s not kind of a big deal.
Anyway, the number is 48. It’s my class number. Before our teacher asked us to write number on it, I didn’t know that it would be class number. What I did was to write on my favorite number which is 3. The tailor already gave us. It was hella a mistake. All my classmates were laughing at me. I myself,too. So, I asked Manong to change it for me.
This serves as my one and only outlet. Expect me to rant/post everything that's on my mind. Capturing moments with my P&S.
