Ever since I was a kid, I really wanted to learn how to ride a bicycle. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to. Until now, I can’t ride a bicycle (boo-freakin-hoo) and I know I’m such a loser. 😦 So just to make myself feel worse, I looked for bikes in the net and I saw my dream bicycle. Gazelle definitely has the best Dutch bicycles okay. </3 I super love their Omafiets. If I can buy one right now and I learn how to ride it, it doesn’t matter if I wear a skirt or a dress. My clothes won’t get dirty too. <////3 For the love of me, can someone please buy me one and teach me how to ride a freakin bicycle? 😦
Today, 12. June, is the Philippine Independence Day. Naturally, it’s a holiday. I expected it to be a day for me to just relax, but when I checked my e-mail around 10PM last night, I saw the request to be an author for our EL 50 class blog. It was a good thing that I checked the blog out because it turns out, that’s where our prof will announce stuff like our assignments. To my surprise (it wasn’t pleasant at all), our prof posted last 9. June about our TWO assignments due on 12. June 2013, 13.00. I panicked the first few minutes after I saw those 2 posts, then I thought of what I should do: finish both of them immediately or do them the next day. I really wanted to do nothing on Independence Day (INDEPENDENCE FROM ASSIGNMENTS FOR A DAY PLEASE!) so I started writing the “Who Am I” essay. I finished after 1hr20min, then went straight to the 2nd assignment. I read and summarized within 2hrs30min. It’s 2.30AM now and I’m just so happy that I’m done and I can finally sleep. ❤
It’s Saturday! I can’t believe the first week (well, first 2 days) of classes in the Uni is over.
It has been a great week because the enrollment did not stress me out so much. I got 12 units during the preenlistment online, so I still had to fall in line for one subject (3.0 units) for me to get the minimum number of units. Last Tuesday, I was in UP at around 6AM and I was first in line for EL 50. Hahahaha! I got the line around 8AM when they started letting students in the enlistment rooms. :> I finished everything I had to do by 9AM. Ngayon lang uli ako nakapag-enroll nang mabilis!
First day of classes was Thursday. As expected my profs didn’t come. I don’t know why my French prof didn’t come to class (maybe she was still advising some students for enrollment) but my German prof told me she had to advise MA students and had to attend a meeting after. It’s almost always like that on the first day — profs don’t really come to class. There are even some profs who don’t come to class on the first week! Haha! But I met all of my profs yesterday. I was surprised to see that my adviser for enrollment was my French prof. My German prof? I knew she was going to teach that class. I was so excited for this class because she has been my prof in my German 11 subject and I loved her. ♥ I also knew who my EL 50 prof was going to be. Pretty excited for this class too. Hihihi. 😀
I really love my schedule this sem. I have 1.5-hour breaks every after subject. If I have 2 subjects with exams on the same day, it won’t be a problem since I have time to rest my brain and review a little. Hihihi. Aaaaanyway, schönes Wochenende! ♥
I was pretty bored a few minutes ago, so this was what I ended up doing: BRAIDS. Then the question I’ve been asking myself for a few months now came back to me: Should I get a haircut or not? I reaaaaally want short hair because it’s so hot in my country, but I love my long hair. I already had it cut last year, and I’ve been trying to grow it back ever since. I am so torn. How I wish I could have it cut now. Then when I want long hair again, I could just tell my hair to grow back and it will, in an instant. But okay, I know, that’s absurd. But a girl can wish, right?
P. S. HAIRCUT? NO?
Okaaay. This kid (click link above) is just AMAZING.
I came across something Audrey Hepburn said while I was window shopping online:
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
I think it was 2 weeks ago when my high school friend, Angel, sent a text asking to choose among 4 or 5 dates for her all-girl birthday celebration. That got me so excited since it’s been a long time since I saw her and our other friends, even though most of us study in the same university (but then again, our university’s big and has a lot of buildings so it’s hard to see each other). Last Wednesday, we (Angel, Cheska, Mara, Jellah, Mich, Annlo, Tasha and I) went to Fashionista Spa at California Garden Square for our spa party, which consisted of hand spa, gel manicure, foot spa and full body massage. I definitely had a great time with them and I wish we get to do this again soon. ♥
