If it happened that you’ve got yourself a new girl, don’t ever come back to me with that bragging look telling me that you don’t need me anymore. Even if your new is better (although it is VERY wrong to ever compare a girl with other girls, well let’s say it anyway), so.. if your new one is prettier, hotter, sexier, smarter (oh gosh I hate to put these -er suffixes!) well, don’t ever do that, even if our relationship wasn’t that great, even if our breakup wasn’t that nice, as a guy, you have this obligation to make every girl feel special and loved, I mean, don’t go out breaking girl’s hearts. Lol, be a nice guy no matter what, don’t be d—k. That’s all.
It’s TGIF. TGIF.
Sad to think that we now have this ‘special-Saturday-Sunday-Classes’ that started a week ago, we can’t do anything about it, whether we like it or not, we are all obliged to come on weekends and attend the special lectures, so I think all I have to do is look at the positive sides and just be thankful for it because we didn’t pay anything for it, our school admin was generous enough to give us this privilege. We will have lecturers from Manila and they will come to our school every weekend and conduct lectures on Hema and CC2, they will also be handling our Lab activities and 50% (I guess) of our grades will come from them, so basically, it’s like we’re having import professors from Manila.
My classes are from Mondays to Thursdays (taking up regular class hours), and Saturdays and Sundays (additional 16 hours of lecture and lab), giving us on only Friday as holiday. For me, it would be good rather than bad, I mean, even though we will be sacrificing our weekend leisure plans, we will be spending more time studying and reading, which, in turn is good because we will be more productive and all. So I’ve been planning to organize my sched well so I can still keep some time for my family and friends, and also for myself.
I will be busy for this whole semester because I’ve decided that I will increase the hours of studying and improve my study habits because I have just lost my academic scholarship because (I admit) that I didn’t exert so much effort last semester, but still, it’s okay because I didn’t expect to get a grade higher than what I got, so I’m still happy despite it, I passed all my subjects (CC, Bacte, yes!) what more can I ask for, right? :)
It’s stupid to trust your feelings to someone. It’s stupid to trust someone. Nobody will take care of what you have given. In the end they will only break your heart, and you will be left alone broken and hurt.
On my book reviews.
Last night, I researched for pro tips on writing book reviews because I decided I’d like to make ‘legit’ reviews for the last three books I’ve read this sembreak.
And so, I googled ‘tips on writing good book reviews’ only to find out that my reviews weren’t even good enough, lol, I mean I thought I was doing a
good right job but after knowing the do’s and don’ts, idk, I was kinda offended with what I have found. Well, anyways, I decided to still stick with my own style — to just write and share what I think about that particular book. :)
You’re lucky if you’re a guy.
You get a chance to choose what kind of girl you’d like to date, you get a chance to choose among the girls around you. It’s okay if you ask for a girl’s name.. You’ve got the choice to do romantic stuffs — buy her flowers, bring her to romantic dates, say good things about her, praise her, tell her she’s beautiful. It’s okay if she rejects you, it’s okay to be persistent, it’s even cuter if you chase after her even after she rejected you, it’s okay to be annoying, she’d appreciate it more if you don’t give up very easily. In the end, you still have the choice if you still want to continue to chase after her, or decide to just stop and look for another.
On the other hand, being the girl is very difficult. We don’t get a chance to pick a guy who would like to date us. We’re lucky if the guy we like likes us back. It’s a very awkward thing to do the first move — to ask for his name, to start a conversation, to tell him he’s good looking, to confess to him.. anything may lead to misinterpretation that we’re flirts rather than romantics. We don’t even have the right to demand for the things he have to do. It’s very heartbreaking if the guy we like rejects us, it’s not okay to chase after him, it’s not okay to be persistent. If he stops talking, then it means we’re finished.
It’s very hard to wait for nothing, it’s very hard to expect something from nothing. In the end, we don’t even have a choice at all. We are only allowed to wait.. and wait.. and wait.. until some guy notices us sitting by the corner, and would ask for a dance.
I don’t consider myself a photographer.
I am not a photographer.
I am an enthusiast.
I am a girl who enjoys taking photographs.
I wasn’t a shutterbug. I didn’t even have the chance to click the shutter button when I was younger. I never had the chance to own a camera before. January 23, 2013 was the first ever time I got to hold a camera, and yes, overflowing with excitement and enthusiasm, got my first Nikon D3000. I’ve got to say shock was the right term to describe me. I mean, with absolutely no experience in photography, my camera wasn’t used very wisely. I don’t know anything about it, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Depth of Field, ISO etc. were Greek for me. I felt disappointed with my first shots, I expected to get perfect shots with it, considering that it was a dslr. But I was wrong. It even came to me that I wanted to quit when I saw my shots. But then I said to myself to give it another try.
I read the manual from cover to cover, researched for photography basics, read online forums, and simply clicked the shutter endlessly. I came to realize that my shots improved as I practice more. I began to develop deep love and interest for it. My perspective changed. I used to ignore things around me, but when I started photography, everything around me became interesting. My pets, my shoes, my books, the flowers, the sunrise, the lights, everything is just amazingly beautiful. I engaged myself in it. I’ve got to say my life changed drastically. I came to realize the beauty of life. How amazing the sunrises and sunsets are, how life mysteriously unfolds in the streets, how a little insignificant thing becomes mightily significant. I want every moment captured.. look at it when I come home, and tell something about it. Nowadays, I think I spend most of my time looking for something to photograph, looking for moments to keep and treasure.Things became more beautiful. Life became more meaningful.
Photography is not about expensive gears and perfect shots, for me, photography is a way of life. :)
There is nothing wrong with too much expectations as long as we know how to handle frustrations.
And yes, finally, today was the last day of the 1st semester. Our block decided to take the exam earlier than scheduled so we can go home early, plus, we can’t wait to finally yell ‘HEY IT’S OVER!’ LOL. Before my friends and I parted, we dropped by at McDonald’s and gave ourselves a treat for a job well done (hopefully). Anyway, I was really excited to go home. When I got home, I drank a glass of water and hurried to my room, had a shower and changed to a comfy shirt and a pair of pajamas. I was very happy to finally free myself from all the stress in school, no more sticky notes, no more to-do’s, no more heavy acad books (at least for a while). Also, mom made me a very nice and healthy dinner (and that made me really happy) missed real food a lot! because I’ve been eating junk for the past few weeks, noodles, chips etc.
Vacation is just too short, but I want it to be worthwhile. I’ve got so many books on queue, haven’t read a novel since August. So, I think I will just spend my time reading books and watching movies while sipping nice cup of coffees for the rest of the vacation. I just wanna feel human again. :)
**PS: But, will definitely miss my bestfriends — Bishop and Henry. Lol
