1 more exam!
THE DAY I LOST MY SEVENTEENITY
I turned eighteen last August 19, 2013 and look at the calendar, it’s already December 31, 2013 and I think it’s about time (LOL) to post this already. I always wanted to post this earlier like seriously! But school won’t let me. Anyway, what matter is that this birthday thang is going to posted. I felt like today is the deadline though it’s not a requirement. So where will I start?
On August 18 of 2013 it was a Saturday, we had our written exam on NSTP and I finished the exam quite early. I went to the library to wait for a friend. But before that, this friend called me on the night of August 17, 2013 (I’m so detailed with dates, sorry). She said that she wants me to accompany her tomorrow. So at the library, I waited for almost two hours and thirty minutes for her. There were complicated things happened that very moment like I don’t want to go with her anymore. Hahaha okay, I got tired of waiting and suddenly switched my mood and stopped talking. They forced me to go have lunch with them. We went to Jollibee near our school.
At Jollibee, while I was still on a bad mood state (I don’t know how to describe how I was that day so let’s just describe it this way), well I’ll have this shortened, my high school friends came carrying a box of IDK-what-it-was and balloons (yes, that’s the balloon right thur the one I’m holding). I have no idea at all that they’re gonna surprise me that very moment. I was expecting like they might do it on the exact day of my birthday or… not. They sang the happy birthday song loudly and I felt shy. In my head, I was like PLS GUYS U STAHP SINGING but no, no who cares? This kind of moment does not happen like everyday in my life.
So they gave me this very cute cupcakes. Unfortunately, there’s only one red velvet flavored cupcake (the one with a minion topping) and of course I ate the red velvet. The red ones were strawberry flavored (not so sure of that) and the yellow/gold ones are butter and I’m still not sure if it was butter. During that hour of being with them, I switched my mood back to the happy one again and felt sorry for acting like a kid HUHUHU. I have a PE class after the break so I have to carry the balloon and the box with me. After PE class, I have a meeting with this org that I joined to and yes I have to carry the gifts again. I rode a jeepney way home and yes with the balloons again. I felt so happy and thankful for having them in my life, yes really.
On August 18, 2013, it was the day I celebrated my birthday. I did not have the debut thing where I have to wear a dress and dance with eighteen roses because we can’t afford it and I don’t want to. I asked some of my high school and college friends to come over the house. My family was also one of the things that I’m thankful for, they did prepare food and made that day very special.
On August 19, 2013 which was my exact birthday, Thezza bought me a red velvet cupcake as her birthday gift. She let me chose other flavors but I really always wanted to try different red velvet cupcakes from different cupcake/cake and coffee shops all over the city.
Good thing we didn’t have a class in Philosophy during my birthday. Because duh, it’s my birthday you can’t have class at 3:00PM. HAHAHAHA I’m just kidding tho. But seriously, I was so lucky not having a class on that period because I planned to meet my previous classmates from civil engineering. Our class schedules were always in conflict so it was really a lucky day for me to see them.
Upon seeing them, they surprised me with balloons and cupcakes at Jollibee… AGAIN. Hahaha. Surprisingly, the cupcakes were all red velvet and this time with candles!
These red velvet cupcakes from Something Sweet were the best red velvet cupcakes that I tasted so far. They’re so good and I’m imagining to pair it with milk or ice cream ugh it’s so good okay I’ll stop.
They also publicly displayed a picture of me printed on a tarp. Hahaha. It was overwhelming, they gave me so much already to make me happy. At the back of the tarp lies their birthday messages for me. It was fun reading them.
And here’s the balloon they got me. It actually comes in three colors, pink, purple, and blue. Sadly, the pink popped out while I was on the jeepney. The girl beside me was seriously annoyed with my balloons. Hahaha.
My friend Casey also gave a gift. What’s inside it? A bag. One of the best gifts ever because I can totally use it everyday in school. They even tried to fool me that what’s inside it are bras and panties. Hahaha.
August 19, 2013 was the day I lost my seventeenity. HAHAHAHA. I still can’t believe until now that I’m already eighteen but still acting like a thirteen or fourteen year old girl. Okay, maybe fifteen. Nothing really changed in me. I should have lost weight but I just can’t do it. I should have wore short skirts and dresses but no I just can’t do it. I should have wore makeup but no I don’t know how to do it. But no, I am not changing myself to something that I am not. Maybe someday I will change, but that change is something that I would really want to make. Right now, I’ll just try to get better on the things that I am doing.
Above all, I would like to thank God for this wonderful life He has given me. I would like to thank Jesus for all the blessings He sprinkled upon my existence (AM I PRAYING NOW?). Though I cannot have what I want, at least I have what I needed. Though my life is not perfect, the life that I have is blessed.
To end this post, I would like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!! Let’s make 2014 a better version of 2013. Much much better! God bless us all.
gaylekokonut asked: What kind of camera are you using? :D
Hello. I’m currently using an Olympus E-510 [10MP] camera in exchange for a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 [7.2MP] because the shutter button was broken. I’m still waiting for it to be fixed *hopefully*. During rush taking of photos, I use my iPod touch 4th generation. Bad quality? Yes! But photo applications will make it somehow, okay. Thank you.
Today’s my Blog Anniversary and I haven’t prepared anything. This is actually my first one! I even almost forgot that today was my blog anniversary. Huehuehue. I’ve been very busy this second semester. I’m sorry I have nothing special to offer today. I just can’t do this right now because I have two major exams tomorrow and I haven’t started reviewing. That’s all I’ve got, I hope I can be back on blogging this Christmas break. Thank you very much and have a great evening.
Having a break after I finished watching one season of Pretty Little Liars. I can’t believe that I would like the show. I’m so thrilled to find out who is ‘A’ (please don’t spoil I’m still on season one lol).
Lights. You can have this edited (if you want to) like putting a typo on it or whatever. Just leave my credit, that’s all. I’m sarreh for the quality :|

Later tonight or maybe tomorrow, I’ll be having a blog a make over. I might use this photo in exchange for my gif on my sidebar. Hihihihi :>
My sembreak’s full of occasion:
10th of October - my cousin celebrated his 11th birthday.
22th of October - my Tita celebrated her birthday
26th of October - my parent’s anniversary.
The usual Spaghetti, sinugba, cake, and ice cream were present except for this very unique dessert that I tasted for the first time. I have no idea what it’s called but they say it’s called “Black Shabu" *laughs* and the main ingredients are gelatin, milk (condensed milk), and cocoa powder. I tried searching for Black Shabu on the internet but nothing shows up that matches as dessert. Well, it really tastes good (or maybe just because it’s my first time).
Random watercolor painting from last year. Nothing special ‘bout this. Hihihi.
