Got my schedule for the first term and I’m just so happy that I don’t have Friday classes! It’s just too bad that we start at 8:00 am and end at 6:00 pm everyday. I also happen to belong to ABMMA Block DMF3.
I can’t believe that school’s coming in 11 days! And not just “school”, it’s college. It’s something big, and something I actually look forward to. So for the past few weeks, aside from prepping up for college, compiling requirements and getting shots (its was painful, by the way), I also spent time with family, friends and myself - eating and eating all day long.
Here are some of the Instagram photos I took!
Left photo: Dea, Alex and Martina saying goodbye two days before I left to study in Manila. Awww! I wasn’t in for goodbyes but they made me cry! Right photo: The famous Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter! It’s a summer must-have.
Left photo: Baked Alaska. It’s one of the best things I’ve tasted in my life! They actually bake the ice cream inside with a little bit of chocolate crust covered with cream. You can order it at Krazy Garlic at Php235.
I guess you could say that the title is a little bit melodramatic, but that’s not how I see it! Bloopers bonded for the last time together before some of us would leave for Manila. As always, the incredible photos are taken by Arie Liston.
Till next time, friends!
Summer calls for a lot tan lines, late night conversations, drinks, food trips, sun-kissed kinds, swimsuits, sunblocks, smiles and everything else I could think of happy. Here’s what I’ve been doing for my first few days of summer!
After spending my 13 years singing the same school hymn, following the same rules, wearing the same uniform and seeing the same people, I can finally say that I’ve graduated from the school that will always be a part of me - Stella Maris! I have to admit though, those 13 years weren’t easy. I have a lot of those bad days, stressful days, roller-coaster days.. but it didn’t stop me from pushing further. Now, I know being able to graduate as a Marisian is already a trophy! I can finally say that I am an alumni of the school that I will forever love.
Before the start of the ceremony, I grabbed the opportunity to take a picture with anyone who has played a big part of my high school life.
The Mass started at around 2:30 in the afternoon, while the Graduation Rites followed. Even though the afternoon was hot and it felt like it took forever, it didn’t matter. Seeing my batch mates wear their toga, fix their corsages and fit their hats, it felt like the moment could last forever! I knew that was the last time I could see us gather together, in one place, at the same time.
I finished high school as Salutatorian, so I know that I made my mom and dad proud!
After the Graduation rites, the giving out of the diplomas and the really dramatic and touching speech of our Valedictorian, it was time for picture taking! I had my sister following me everywhere as I randomly grabbed people to take a photo op!
I wasn’t able to take a picture with everyone, I knew that was impossible. But at least, I know that I’ll always remember them in my heart!
