Before school starts, I’m going to try posting a blog everyday about what I’ve been up to this summer! There’s a week till my junior year in college starts and I want to remember this summer in particular because it was honestly one of the best I’ve had in a while :)
So to kick off the “Recap of Summer 2014 Blogs”, I give you a video I made for the trip my friends and I took to Kael’s beach house in Calatagan, Batangas March 22-24.
*Sidebar: I edited the video using Adobe Premiere Pro, which was my first time using it hihi hopefully I get better at making and editing videos :))
It was definitely a fun weekend with my cray friends and hope we can make the trip again soon! Luv ya guys <3
Hiiiiiii! I, obviously, have not been updating my blog at all…since last year!!! But I have time now (finally) and I thought that I should kick off my return to blogging with the very first party of 2014 I attended, the biggest party I’ve ever attended and one of the best, SINULOG!!!!
I had been waiting for Friday that whole week cause it was the last day of legit classes! The next week was finals week and we only had to go to school if we had to so for me that was like once or twice that week! :))) The bonfire was supposed to be like a kick off to summer, a celebration of the end of the semester and a hoorah to the completion of freshman year! The event itself was “aight”. It was kind of boring and meh. The bonfire wasn’t like the bonfire I experienced back in senior year of HS but it was still nice that we had a bonfire for our baseball and football teams! :D Congrats to both teams by the way!
This was the first night run I attended here in the Philippines and it was fun because of the people I went with. If it weren’t for my friends it would’ve been a total bust because the event ended up to be pretty disappointing. We were all expecting colored glow water like glow paint to be provided so we could throw it at each other because that’s what the event posters said would happen but there was none! We were running and running waiting for the glow water but nada!
But it’s totes cool and I’m over it by now haha Dewi came with us to the run but didn’t register in time to actually run with us. But then Kim’s friend backed out last minute so there was an extra run kit so ya know the YOLO Queen that Dewi is took it and ran with us! We were about 2 hours early for the run and we ended up being late for the start of our 3K race because Dewi had to buy socks, cut her shirt and change.
We jogged maybe less than half the route lol we mostly walked and “power walked” and stopped for the cameras so we could get as many photos as we could. We stopped for almost every camera and we only got 4 group shots -_- haha oh wellzzz
Titling this one March Madness because literally March was insane only because it was the last few weeks of school and finals were happening. Project after project, paper after paper, test after test…it was crazyyyy!!! That’s why I only found the time now, a week after the last day of school, to blog again. (I’ve been busy catching up on tv shows and sleeping in till like 2 pm this whole week haha) Plus I wanted to do this before I go on our mini-vacay to Subic for Holy Weekend! :)))
The first day of March was already busy…kinda. Jil, Kim and I went to the SuperSale Bazaar like the one Kim and I went to back in December, but this one wasn’t as good as the last. But I still got a lot haha…then that night we went to a party but we went home early after doing this…
…yehhhh we’re kinda vain. That photo right thurrr, the top left corner photo…yep that right there is our signature pose from now on HAHA ;)))
Okay so the title of my post comes from this talk my block and I were required to attend two weeks ago? or was it just last week? But anyways, at the talk, one of the speakers talked about “YOLO” and he kept saying “…because YOLO…” It was so awkward hearing an older guy say it so it caught on and my friends and I use it constantly when we want an excuse to do something stupid (even though I never liked hearing that word or even saying it). And it’s just so suitable for this particular four-day weekend we had!!!!
Shindig…Shindig…Shindig. AJMA’s biggest and most awaited party of the year. Let’s just say it was memorable but it wasn’t the BEST party my friends and I have been to…It was just too many people and too big for us. I guess we like more “intimate” and closed parties where we know a lot of people? haha but anyways it was still fun cause I mean it’s a party. duh. It was just a weird night cause I didn’t get ready with mah CB girls so it was definitely awkward…The whole day I just occupied myself with nothing then finally Robie picked me up to go to Kael’s house so they could smoke it up there…
We were kinda late but we made it just in time for the clincher which was amazing even though I didn’t really process what was happening cause I was looking for my friends haha just sooo many people!!!
Unfortunately, I do not remember a lot of the night as I…yeah…okay. And we also do not have a lot of photos which suckssssss balls cause we looked damn hot that night haha

Friday, all classes ended at 12:30 because of A-Fair so a lot of people cut their morning classes except for the few like me…School was so empty and bare haha but after my last class I found Kim, Dewi and Kael and we headed to Katsu Cafe for lunch! It’s like a mini, cheaper version of Yabu :))
My first legit fashion photo shoot with Kim!
At first, we were planning to shoot at the fair because ya know fair photos are so cute! haha but then we checked out the fair and it was kinda not what I envisioned it to be so we went to Kael’s neighborhood to find a photo shoot worthy spot!
Here we go!!! :))
Late as usual but what do ya expect?
I decided to finally make an outfit post because Kim and I agreed I would post one, if she posted one. And she did. Like a month ago. haha so this is long overdue!
I started to do the “shoot” by myself and I realized that 1) my camera is not compatible with a remote control shooter 2) it’s really hard to take photos of yourself by yourself and 3) I can never be a model. My face is just not structured for that kind of thing haha. I eventually ended up just taking photos of myself through the mirror because the ones I did using set-timer ended up either blurry, out of frame or plain UHGLEH.
**KIM!! We need to do these outfit shots together! It’ll be so much easier and legit! :D**
So here is what I got…
Our ES group made another video presentation for our assigned topic: Suspended Particulate Matter or otherwise known as, SPM.
This week has been pretty chill on the academics front but not doing any work at all is going to bite me in the butt soon :/
But anywho moving on…Friday, we went out to Eastwood to meet up with Tito Phil and Tita Cosette’s sister’s family for dinner. Tito Phil is from Texas, where we are from, and they’re our family friends back home so it was nice to hear how everyone is doing back home :)) But it also made me miss “home” again even more! :( When I go back to visit (possibly in December 2013), they’re going to be in college!!! Like wtf. I’m so old. And the little kids are gonna be in middle school and high school and taller than me!! I feel like I’m missing out on so much at home :’( I really do miss those guys.
Wednesday night I went to the Swedish House Mafia: One Last Tour Concert with Jil and some of her high school friends and it was freakin’ amazing!!! Haven’t experienced anything like it!!
It was definitely a great and lucky opportunity since we got the tix from her friend and they were FREE VIP STANDING tix!!! It was last minute but how could you pass up such an opportunity??? Haha I’ve never been VIP for anything…ANYTHING. Swear. haha
I’ve been to concerts where it was free standing close to the stage but this was something else. It was just one huge party with live music! Amazing. We were jumping and dancing like no other I had no care in the world who saw me lol
What made the night even more fun was that we ran into a bunch of people we knew! We met up with Igi, Glen & Jon and their Cebuano group, John and some more of Jil’s high school friends :))
It was just sooooo much fun haha
Jil and me messin’ around at Starbucks :))
Here come the crap quality photos from my crap iPhone…
