Summer So Far
Listening to: AC

It's been nearly 2 weeks since my summer has started, and I haven't blogged anything about it. Let's see.

I went swimming with my blockmates the Saturday after our exams at Club Manila East, and we had lots of fun. I got to try out the underwater camera that my uncle gave me when he was visiting. The camera is kinda old, and the battery runs out uber fast, but the shots we were able to get made up for the inconvenience. Coco and I slept over at Anj's house after that. We actually had this mini-misadventure when we commuted from Anj's house to the place where Coco's mum works, the Union Bank building in Ortigas. XD Renovated office rooms are love. Then last week I met up with Gela and Cai to go to Eastwood (where I got something for Ginnow. Shhhh. :3~), then later on in the week Gela, Cai and Racine to go to Greenhills (plus Maku and his friend Francis.) On the 31st, Mum and Dad celebrated their wedding anniversary, so we went out to Chili's for lunch, then spent the rest of the afternoon in Shang. Got to buy a shirt in Zara (expensive lol X3) and Mum bought me a full set of the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner markers. We were supposed to go to this spa place (Water Ace? Dunno lol) but we got all lazy and decided not to. On the way home, the Gela, Cai and Kari crashed to later sleep over at the house. They bought my parents a chocolate cake, which so far I've eaten 25% of. XD I had fun, despite the circumstances. I really love my girls. :) I still have all the doodles they made on my mirror. (White board markers ftw) On the third, I went to school to get my clearance form.

The heat is unbelievable. When I'm in my room or when I'm downstairs it's not so bad, since I have an AC in my room and it's generally cooler downstairs, but when I head into the study room to check on mum's PC, I can seriously feel the heat wash over me. o_o

I've taken it upon myself to be somewhat productive, and knowing me, I'm making sure that I start small. I've finally gotten around to decorating the vanity mirror I have. Before the wood frame was just.. well, wood. Plain wood with dirty pencil marks and stuff. But now it's silver! :D I've bought beads and gold glue, and I'm currently in the process of decorating it. I'm also thinking of renovating my DA account, by deleting everything on nayomi-chan and transferring to a new ID. Fresh start, hopefully. I honestly think I need a creative jump start. Other projects I hope to get done are

1) cleaning out my closet
-by cleaning my closet, I mean getting rid of my old clothes. I've shirts in my closet that are nearly 4 years old. @___@ Yes, this is an indirect way of saying that I need new clothes. XD
2) cleaning the space under my bed
3) read at least 5 books of my 'collection'
4) decorate the wall above my bed

Our final grades have been released, and I've got mixed emotions on mine. While I'm proud of the fact that my lowest grade is a 2.25, I feel that I should have gotten higher marks for certain subjects. =/ Math is one; I can honestly say that I did loads better for finals compared to prelims, but surprisingly my grade went lower. What's disturbing is the fact that nearly everyone in our class got lower grades in Math; our professor is someone we found out to be someone who takes things personally, so given the circumstance that she's had some run-ins with a number of our classmates, it's possible that she's taken it out on our grades. ~_~ For Philosophy, we did a computation of our grades, and even if I was to get a barely passing grade on our final exam, my final grade was going to be a 94. But my professor told me on the last day of our exams that I got a high score on my paper, so my grade should be even higher than that. But I got a 2. On the other hand, I'm amazed at the fact that I got a 2 in Rizal Course. I can't write in Filipino for shiznit, srsly. And I got a flat one in Handball. =p I'm happy, but disappointed at the same time.

Higher grades than expected = Win
Lower grades than felt deserved = Fail

I'm seriously planning on talking with my professors about this.

In other news, our vacation to the states has been finalized, and we're leaving for Hawaii on the 17th this March, which is ironically the day that Gela comes back from New Jersey, or where ever she is. XD We'll be spending about a week in Hawaii, then we're flying to Vegas with Auntie Monette, Uncle Edwin and Winette for a few days, then it's back to Hawaii. Just a few days short of three weeks. I'm excited! :D We didn't get to travel last year, so I feel like I'm making up for it. I actually have a lot to do when I get there, like register for voting, and... other important things I can't remember right now. I'm also planning on buying lots of stuff; the Navy Exchange usually sells gadgets for cheaper prices (military perk XD) and I might be able to get my hands on some cool stuff. :p I'm hoping that Uncle or Auntie will graciously sponsor, or at least help in my efforts to get a DSLR. XD *swoons* That would absolutely win, I swear. One of the things I want to do when we get there is to go to a flea market of some sort. Flea markets are so different from tiangges here. I want to find cheap, authentic vintage knick-knacks, photos, paraphernalia and other things. *swoons again* XD Of course, I'd try to get stuff for everyone. :) I really hope it pushes through.

Ginno and I haven't been on the best of terms for a while, and it was getting me down. It was one of the main reasons why I wasn't blogging. It gets tiring and is extremely draining; constantly arguing over things. There were times when I thought that I was about to give up on everything, that I couldn't take it anymore. (Drama!) But after thinking about it, no matter how tired or drained or hopeless it seemed at the time, I knew I wouldn't. I'm not trying to brag about being 'strong' or whatever, because I'm not that strong, and that isn't what this is about. I really really love him, and I don't want to give up. And I know he loves me too, even if we fight. It's made me realize how much I love him, these hardships. I always keep to heart what Coco told me a long time ago; the first year is always the hardest. I don't know if this is true for every couple, but I understand that things aren't ever going to be perfect. Still I'll be doing everything I can to get things as close as possible. :)

Time for sleep. :p

"the first year is always the hardest. I don't know if this is true for every couple"

Generally, yes. But thank not from our side XD

Take some breathing in between ree ^^

It's great that you have that attitude towards your relationship with Ginnow. :D I don't know if the first year is the hardest, but yeah, me and Bunneh have had some difficult times as well. But we're sticking it out. Best of luck to us all! XD

Ang alam ko nga, the first two years... Haha, well, yeah, no one ever said it'd be easy. :P Good luck to you both.
