Weird day. I feel so bored. There's nothing to do. All of those things that keep me entertained/ busy are so insignificant right now.

Here I go again. Maybe, i had a little too much fun this week that i am craving for more.

It's the miting de avance in a few hours and I don't have a speech prepared yet. I wanted to make on yesterday, but no.

We have a presentation for AEA to Dr. Aldaba and the OSA team in an hour. And somebody's not prepared. Not me. I'm so stressed already because she's bringing us down. Argh. I don't want to flop the report.

Time to prepare for all that i need to do today. Wish me luck.

5000th Song

I was on a music video downloads galore today. I got my 5000th song on my iPod today. I am amazed that my downloads for today added to those that are on it already totalled 5000.

5000 seems a lot, I know. This happened because when I download, I download the whole album of any artist. In reality, a lot of those songs are not familiar to me but the artists are.

Though, my iPod can't handle it. I'm having problems with syncing. An error is occuring even though I still have around 3GB space of my 30.

(Forgive me. I shall do Philo shit for this entry. I just can't help but feel pity for them.)

I was at the AEA room a while ago waiting for someone to have a consultation session with me. Band music started playing. The ever curious me stared outside the window. There was a going to be a parade of flags of different schools. A lot of the Ateneo staff were in Filipiniana costume to showcase those to our foreign visitors who came from various schools. Interesting. Then, rain started to pour. I thought that the parade would not push through. BUT NO... The people did not even bother to move and take cover from the rain. It was as if they were told not to move but I could see that they wanted to take cover because they were using the flags to cover themselves from the rain.

A few minutes later, rain still pouring and band still playing, the parade started to move. I couldn't believe it.

None of those under the rain probably wanted to push through with the parade, but to please the Presidents of other univesities, they needed to. Forced labor. I can't imagine how our foreign visitors would even enjoy the parade when you could tell that those parading were drenched and, certainly, not happy.

Literally, alienated labor happening inside the Ateneo. Sad.

Job Fair

I went to the job fair with my blockmate. We were so excited to make our resume and give it out different companies for OJT. I am really not certain that I want to pursue OJT but I just want to see if any company would be interested to hire me. I think for Summer, I'll take my Eco electives so I can finish my DS Minor by next year. If I don't take summer classes, the next 2 semesters would be really heavy.

I hope I get a reply from the companies.

I can finally rest. The past week has been really stressful and all the stress ended a couple of minutes ago when I finally submitted my philo paper. I slept 4.30am today just to finish that crappy paper. I hate it. Writing (especially for Philo) used to be so effortless.

Anyhoo, Dev't Eco and Econometrics midterms were surprisingly not that difficult. Though, i really exerted a lot of effort to study for these exams. My usual sleep time last week was 4 hours a day. That's so kulang for me.

Ateneo YES! was a success. Loves it. Thanks everyone.

We were having a "MikMik" party in Matteo a while ago. 10pesos worth of MikMik was enough to bring us so much joy to survive this hell week. hahaha

Anyhoo, We were reading for Dev't Eco (hello 400 pages) when we finally decided to open the tarp for YES. We didn't want to open it because it was huge and nobody wanted to roll it up back again. Since my blockmate was "generous" enough to promise that he would roll it up, we opened it.

As the tarp rolled slowly on the floor, I almost shed a tear. Damn it. It felt like the culmination of what we've been working so hard on for the past 2 or 3 months. We (my block) have just been so stressed the past few weeks and this week is certainly the most challenging academic week of my life.

We need all the patience and luck to surive this week.

Btw, view the tarp tomorrow in front of Leong hall. haha

Sweet End to A Stressful Week

This week has been hell for me. I barely had enough time to just sit and let my mind rest. I had numerous meetings, loads of things to read, and tons of things to think about. Next week will certainly be more hell-ish.

I just found out today that the JEEP GA, which is a requirement for Philo (I won't get my 20% of my grade if I don't attend that), is on Wednesday, 4:30pm to 6pm. Same schedule as the YES Core Team meeting and SLE Dry-Runs for YES. I need to go to all of them. To add to that, my Metrics midterms is on the same day as YES. Argh.

Anyhoo, after the AEA meeting, i had dinner with people I love being with. It was so fun. They were, as usual, so funny. hahaha And, I enjoyed my McDonald's meal. I haven't had Mcdo since November. I missed their Caramel Sundae. Yumm-o.

After the dinner, i had to go to NBS to buy stuff. On my way there, I saw my Strains friends. Strainers that I am close too. I haven't been to a single Strains event since the semester started so I rarely see them. We had a long and really intersting chat about Strains.

This is what I love doing. Just eating and talking with people I love. These two incidents really made my week more tolerable.

I feel like an owl now. I am not getting enough sleep. For the past 6 or 7 days, I've been sleeping for like 6 hours a day only. I know that sounds a lot but, seriously, for me, that is sooooooooo kulang. I need at least my 8 hours of sleep a day!!

There's so much to do with so little time but I can't afford not to do these things so i deprive my self of sleep. Argh.

Right now, I want to sleep but I am still waiting for a paper I need to edit for YES which Manila Bulletin will publish in their newspaper. I'm so excited about this.

I need sleep but all the things in my life right now are demanding attention (acads/org/personal shit/ friends/ etc. etc. etc.). Incredibly, it is at home where i feel least stressed now. It used to be the other way around.

Appreciate It

As you all know from my previous entry, I've been stressed lately. hahaha

A friend saw me yesterday waiting to be picked-up from school. She noticed that I was stressed and "gloomy." She promised to deliver me food to perk me up and make me happy.

Today, she gave me all sorts of junk food. I really appreciate it. And munching on those with them made me forget all my stressors.

More, the world is trying to make my day better. More friends gave me food stuff to perk me up. I didn't even expect them. A blockmate gave me a candy cane, which I will eat later. And another blockmate, gave me a cup of coffee that she carried all the way from Starbucks, while walking to go school. It's as if the world wants me to be full of energy and happy.

I really appreciate it. Thanks, friends.

Can't Sleep

When I can't sleep, no matter how sleepy I am, it means something's bothering me or I am thinking hard about something.

Tonight, as soon as we finished our Domdom HW, i told my blockmate that I'm sleepy and I wanted to go to sleep. I tried, but I couldn't. Fart.

I have a rethorical question in my head that I trying to figure my way out of. Let's put it that way. Weirdo. hahaha I don't think I can figure it. I certainly wanna know the answer.

1st Day Stress

Grabe. Stress. Amazing.

Got a bad score in the Domdom quiz.
The Domdom HW was blah.
Domdom announced that our LT would be on Jan 17. Jan 17= Ateneo YES. Fail.
Went to AHS to give out Ateneo YES ads. We were able to talk to only a few teachers.
I don't want to enumerate all.

But, oddly, I enjoyed this day. I missed people and seeing them today made this day tolerable.

Failure Notice

I got a total of 117 failure notices. Great.

I've been crazily sending out the invites for Ateneo YES. I got my e-mail adresses from the Deped database. I was able to send out around 200. And 117 of them bounced back to me. Fantastic. I love living in a 3rd world country.

And of the few that was able to get through, i got 1 response. And it made me smile.

I’ve been a busy bee the past few days so I haven’t been blogging as often. Anyhoo, a lot of things have happened over the Xmas break and I’ll try to share ‘em all.

News # 1: I’m running for AEA Pres.

Yes, this time I am certain that I will run. I’ve been avoiding this topic for quite some time because I didn’t want people to bother talking about me or who I am going against. I don’t even know who I am going against now. For the past months, people have been pitting me and others against each other and it’s not very healthy so I’ve decided to shut up about this topic until now.

Anyhoo, friends, I need all your support. Please pray for me and my “party.” haha

News # 2: I predict a hellish January (and February) for me

Things that will cause this:
Election season
Ateneo YES!
YES report
InTACT exposure trip
3 LTs
Strains SLTS
NGO fair
GotJobs Job fair
GotHeart Marketing Proposal
2 debuts
Tons of readings.

News # 3: Ateneo YES is causing me stress.

Weeeeeeeeeeeee. Who would think that Deped would be open when there’s nationwide Holiday?! ‘Nuff said.

News # 4: YET, I am soooo excited about 2009.

Probably because I like being busy. And there’s so much people to get to know and more friendship to build and strengthen. (I am so people-centered right now.. hahaha)

News # 5: I hate Sasha Fierce

Sasha Fierce is Beyonce’s alter ego. I listened to new disc and it sucks, I mean, Disc 2 does. The album is divided into 2 discs: Disc 1 is Beyonce’s and Disc 2 is Sasha’s. Swear. Please kill Sasha Fierce. Beyonce needs to kill her alter ego.
