“The education of the Filipino must be a Filipino education. It must be based on the needs and goals of the nation. The objective is not merely to produce men and women who can read and write or who can add and subtract. The primary objective is to produce a citizenry that appreciates and is conscious of its nationhood and has national goals for the betterment of the community.” — Renato Constantino, The Miseducation of the Filipino

College life has been very time-consuming. Well, at least I have expected for that. No more to the days when spoon feeding is at its finest. I have no choice, but read in advance, take notes ~properly~ and choose to study than spend most of my time in the virtual world.  It is just weird (and really sad) that I get to discover a trend or news a week after it started. I think I just got used to knowing the latest issues and stuff through Twitter, Facebook etc. because I had so much free time before.
With the independent life, I guess I am (still) coping up with everything at the moment. I am still learning to budget my weekly allowance though, especially with the food since I’m used to eating at home and not spending almost 1/4 of my money with meals. Well, this is to being independent and surviving three weeks of living alone! :-)
The Happy List
1. Amnesia by 5SOS. It’s weird how a sad song can cheer me up.
2. Super classmates 
3. Morning jogs with Bea
4. Dinner outs with high school batch mates
5. Using 5+ emojis in a text message
6. The thought of being 17
7. Cheesy garlic chicken of Big Belly’s
8. Large classes with awesome Profs
9. Learning to play (guitar) again
10. Westbrook at night
11.  Meeting new friends
12. UP-LB being nothing, but photogenic
13. Knowing that I can trust God’s time

Never thought that this could just feel like home.

(Freedom Park, UPLB)
Hola, guys! Really want to thank everyone who greeted me last week, I am really sorry that I was not able to thank you guys one by one because of the crappy internet in my dorm. Anyways, I read everyone’s messages, and got super kilig… thank you, Tumblr people!!
Campus Tour = Seventeenth. The unbearable eLBi heat and what-felt-like endless walk were a bit stressful, but at least I got to know where my buildings for every subject is located. Cheers because I did not get lost on my first week, woohooo. Got to meet some friends from the block, too. Yay, Block G!
The whole family went to UPLB for my birthday. I didn’t expect them to drive all the way here; However, because my father bought a plane ticket the night before I leave Cavite, they got it all planned out. We had dinner with the newest member of the family, Bea (hahaha). After dinner, they dropped us off at Westbrook, then they headed home.
Almosalan + Convocation + Freshmen Night the next day. I attended the events, but we didn’t finish the Freshmen Night na. Errr..
Had dinner with some high school friends the day after I moved. Thank you Dunna, Lian, Michael, Jieno, Bea and Kuya Frendel! 
#UPFirstDayHigh - Most of my professors were really cool, plus it really felt like college because of the large classes, and I got to pick the clothes to wear 11343842 years of my student life. Academic freedom, yo.
Survived the first week… with tan lines. Also, I lost my umbrella (you can survive without notebooks, but not without this) on the second day, and yup, the clumsy side of myself once again. So I had to buy a new one (ang mahal bat ganun huhu), I don’t think I’ll ever lose it again since it’s worth a day of my allowance. As the saying goes, you will just appreciate someone or something’s worth once it’s taken away from you. Huhuhu, payong feels
Library = Forever Tambayan because fast internet connection + aircon.
All in all, I am having a great time in college, though works are starting to pile up. I have to be honest, I can’t really update my blog as much as before already. Well, I have to set my priorities straight, can’t handle to get any singko this sem, so I have to work my ass off!!

“And besides there’s so much beauty in a storm.”
I wonder what you feel, I wonder what you think and most importantly, I wonder how you see things,. It is heart breaking that all I can do is wonder, because I cannot find enough strength to ask you these questions. I do not beg you to fix the mess I am, I just pray that you will be able to accept my flaws. You have no idea how I always hope that you’ll see something resplendent and scrumptious in a disaster, no matter how indefatigable it is… because I’m a storm covered in skin.
