This is actually an old picture but I guess it still fits. It’s finally the weekend and I have (as usual) been unproductive. I have watched The Boy In Stripped Pajamas though and I’ve already read the book long ago but that didn’t stop me from crying a little with this movie. I also watched the second episode of Free and I guess that those two count for something. Not much else to say about this weekend. I’d talk about my week but eh. Maybe in the next post. I was supposed to go out with some friends today but my sister is sick so I have to stay at home. This is the 3rd Saturday in a row that I was supposed to go out but did not because of my family and I really don’t know what I should say about that.
It’s Sunday today and I think I just wasted my whole weekend. I was supposed to go out with some friends yesterday but my mom decided to drag me along with her while she met a client and I was stuck just sitting there for a good 5 hours (I am not exaggerating this) It probably would’ve been better if I stayed home but there I was, trying to entertain myself with an electronic gadget instead of being at the mall with good company or at least some relaxation at home. Today, I watched Mean Girls and I think I have homework to do but eh. Anyway, I have been looking for some good music recently and mostly, I’ve been listening to Nirvana and Maroon 5 which are 2 very awesome bands. I am also typing this right now whilst wearing a Denim jacket and a white skirt so I feel quite… um, I don’t know really but “something”. I don’t have much to say actually so I guess that is all and also I hope I get into Photocom at school.
We had our welcome gathering today which is basically welcoming us Freshmen into the HS department. I was expecting something pretty formal because that’s how it usually is in Grade school but it was actually really fun. It was Divergent themed and the Seniors prepared some role plays that were very funny. They even did a short imitation of Mean Girls! As we entered, they placed red paint on our arms which signifies that scene in Divergent where they draw blood from their arms while they choose a faction but we can’t draw blood during the gathering so they improvised. They handed out these book mark like things with the factions on them and I got Abnegation which is not like me at all. I wanted Dauntless but oh well. They had the teachers dance too and the Dance Troupe was really good. High school is quite different from Grade school. It’s been a month since my first day as a Freshman and I’ve enjoyed my stay so far. I like how the people in our class are pretty cool and don’t tell on us whenever someone brings phones or so. So I’ve had a few bad days and all but I’m trying to not care and I guess that, as of now, all is well and good. I got elected as an assistant treasurer and Photo Journalism screenings are coming up (wish me luck!)
The weather right now is absolutely ridiculous. The day starts of all bright and sunny as well as extremely hot then all of a sudden, the rain pours down hard and a little short of being classified as a storm. Okay, so maybe I was exaggerating the storm part but still. I missed 2 days of class last week because I got the colds (and I was also pretty lazy) I actually love rainy weather. It makes me feel all sentimental. Anyway, I’m not really busy today so that’s why I decided to post this but I guess this is just the calm before the storm and I expect to be bombarded with work this week. Today, me and my friends sat with this other group of people (who I honestly dislike but I believe I am being irrational) and it was actually quite fun although it was also a little awkward because of some history between some people. I guess that is the most part to be said of today. We got dismissed at 2 but I forgot to tell my mom so she picked me up at 4. I spent the rest of my free afternoon while waiting with my sister and her friends who are surprisingly amusing. I guess that is all for today.
I bought a pack of cards the other week and recently, I’ve spent a lot of time on learning how to shuffle a deck of cards. I always liked cards. I don’t really know why. I like how there’s a King and a Queen and hearts and spades and all that stuff. I also miss being with my friends and sitting under our usual spot after class, right under this small tree. Then we would form a small circle and laugh and talk. Sometimes, we’d bring a pack of cards and play Bluff. For some reason, I feel really nostalgic right now. Anyway, that is all… (I’m always so bad at ending these things)
For some reason, everyone is wearing loom bands of various colors and such and I really don’t know why. My dad bought me a loom bracelet maker a few months back when these weren’t popular yet and I did enjoy making bracelets. It kept me away from my gadgets for awhile actually but things get boring after awhile so I eventually went back to my gadgets (haha) Anyway, here are some pictures because I felt like posting them.
So somehow, I have managed to survive the first two weeks of my Freshman year. I have a ton of projects and homework I need to do right now but so far, I’ve spent the first half of my weekend on watching some cool shows and I’ve finished 2 whole series so far and I’m on the second episode of the current one. So yeah, not the best thing to do when you have tons of other works to finish but eh.
Things so far? Well… I’ve started eating in the Grade school canteen with my friends because the High school canteen is always packed and yesterday, I nearly got in trouble with my teacher. Yesterday was Founders day and we had no regular classes plus we had this little party-ish thing and some people started a cake fight and I was somewhat involved but I used my ninja moves so yay to that. That’s mostly it I guess? Well, here are some pictures
So today, I just managed to survive my first day ever of Highschool. It’s nothing like I expected it to be though. I already have homework on the first day (I am not kidding) It’s also pretty hard because almost everything is new and my best friend, Claryze, won’t be back until next week while my other friends are in different sections. I’ll try and make new friends though. We’re seated by family name and I’m at the 3rd row, very end so I have one seatmate who is a new student and a wall beside me. I like my seat because it somewhat hides me from the teacher but it’s also probably one of the hottest places on Earth (okay, so maybe I am exaggerating) but I am not kidding about the hot part. I sit right below the fan which is pointed towards the middle of the class so I get no air from it and the wall prevents me from getting any fresh air. I can’t tell much yet but from the looks of it, I know it won’t be easy. I am both nervous and excited from whatever is coming. I don’t know what’s going to happen in this span of 4 years but most probably, it’ll be stuff I would’ve never expected. I hope I can make some good memories so I can look back to what is supposedly my “glory days” and smile. Well, I guess that’s mostly it for now. I don’t have any picture to post because we can’t bring gadgets to school *sighs*
So, just like I promised, here’s an overview of how things are at our new condo unit. I only picked out some random pictures and I placed a filter over all of them so they would be more uniformed. I’ll probably post all of the non-filter ones later on. I’m glad I’ve finally managed to fulfill a posting promise I made. Anyway, here are the pictures. They aren’t really anything special actually because I took most of these pictures on our first few days here when it was practically empty. I might post a timeline of the pictures so I can show you how the place is slowly changing. They’re mostly plain pictures but I find their simplicity pretty artistic. Also take into mind the fact that it isn’t exactly easy to take inspiring shots in my circumstances. Still, I’m pretty proud of them so here they are:
