It’s been a while since I last wrote a decent blog post (most of what I did was reblog photos, music, and quotes). So now I’m attempting to write something long.. I just wish this will look decent enough and pass as a “blog”.
So I’m going to recount how my summer went.
Here’s a fact: I’m not doing well with my studies. I had classes almost every summer, and this year was no exception. But this summer is a little different. We are forced to enroll in a summer class that is prerequisite of our last sem’s subject. I, on the other hand, had to add one more subject.. well, because I failed in it. I won’t mention what subjects I took this summer, but they are all I.T. related. The good news is, it felt like it’s not a summer class. Lots of students are still in school, even those from other colleges. I think classes during summer are easier to take. Not just because I’ve taken them the second time around, but because the lectures are easier to understand, and the professors are more comfortable. Maybe it’s because of the weather.
As for the forced summer subject, we have to produce an output as a group. Mine is consisting of five members, I’m the sixth. Fortunately our leader has a spare house in Bulacan, so most of the overnights happen there, though we sometimes use our other group mates’ homes. This is where most of the fun and frustrating stuffs happen. Fun because in Bulacan, we are always on our own. We shop for our food, and we cook them too.. though mostly it’s me who just sits there, waiting to be served. But I sometimes help in preparing the meal or washing the dishes afterwards. We also watch movies, or play games when we got minor things to do (or when we can’t do it anymore, at least for that time). We, I mean they, recently developed a fondness for playing cards. We play this so-called Pusoy Dos. Sometimes, other groups would join us in our overnights, and the fun would be doubled, even tripled, depending on the number of groups who joined us. I know we’re going fourth year when regular class starts, but you can’t blame us. We’re still kids. Oh, did I mention that we played in the rain last first of May?
Frustration comes when we’re so busy and engrossed in what we’re doing, and then we start to debate on how this would work, or if that would be included to what we’re doing. There haven’t been any physical or serious emotional quarrels that happened though, sad to say.
I’m also involved in our church. I know you wouldn’t believe it, ‘cause I myself couldn’t believe it, too. Well, I’ve been attending this church since last year, and all I can say is, it changed my views in life.. at least some of them. I came to know God even more. Last summer, it would feel really awkward raising my hand and singing worships songs, and reading the bible, and doing my devotions. But now, it feels like it’s a natural thing, though I still can’t preach to people and invite them to the church every Sunday. I know I’ll be working on them and I know I’ll be doing this for quite some time.
I also caught-up with my high school mates this summer. One of them now works as a crew in a fast food, and he would treat us to the movies, or in an amusement park. But he’ll be back to school when class starts again. Oh, time can indeed change a person. Some of them are thinner, some are gaining weight, and some are even changing their sexual preferences. Nonetheless, I still missed them. All of them, even the ones I’m not close with.
As for my family which consists of my mom and my sister, I think we’re becoming poorer and poorer in terms of money, every single day. Lots of things are happening; they’re so horrible that I can’t even talk about them. All I can say is, I’m sick of eating hotdogs of all sorts (read: footlong, cheesedog, tunadog, chickendog, and dogdog. Okay, one of the above is not true), barbecues, and fried eggs for dinner. Sigh.. I’m also forbidden to eat as much candies as I want from our store. From our freakin’ store! Oh, but thank the heavens for stocked potatoes. I can cut them and fry them, put salt, and they’ll be French fries in less than thirty minutes.
I think the only highlight of this summer is my new-found love for Carly Rae Jepsen and her infectious Call Me Maybe song, with its accompanying video with the hot guy. I’m so looking forward on making a goofy video of it with my classmates sooner. I also came to love the voice of Lana Del Rey. Her Born To Die album is what’s currently trending on my playlist. My summer also came by with illegally downloading movies thru Torrent. I regret nothing though, except for the slow internet connection.
The season’s almost ending, for this country at least (oh, how I wish we had spring, autumn, and winter so I can layer our rags and still look fab in them). I already knew my section and my schedule, and I hope I can add two of my still-not-taken subjects last year. And I wish I’ll pass the other subject I took this summer (fingers crossed with legs!). I can’t afford to fail anymore, and I’m still hoping to graduate in time. Oh Lord help me!
I’m starting to get tired of typing, and I think you’re already bored reading this waste of time (if someone would actually read this). So I’ll end now. I hope my next blog will be meaningful, not like this trash, (though I still feel accomplished writing this). My back’s starting to ache now because I’m in an awkward position. So, until next time.
PS. I got a buzz cut this summer. The last time I did this was in elementary. And oh, I became obsessed with making GIFs, here’s one of Chris Evans:
