To start things off, I only had two hours of sleep that day, still blaming Snapchat and How I Met Your Mother (yup, watching it again), because our parents woke us up at exactly 4:00 AM. Luckily, I did most of my papers before the weekend, so I really had no worries to spend the weekend road tripping and chilling with my favorite people. We were a big family, so had to use three cars. Anyways, we started to hit the road at exactly 5:00 AM. Made use of the time trying to complete my sleep, but I just have this habit of observing places while I’m on a road trip, so yup, I was really torn between doing that habit and sleeping. Ended up sleeping since I was really tired… hahaha!
After 3 hours of drive and a lot of stop overs, we were already in the church of Liliw, Laguna. They were just in time for the mass. Jal and I enjoyed 2 cups of taho (it tastes really different, but gooood) while waiting for them. After mass, the ~oldies~ got to enjoy shopping for sandals (yup, that’s what Liliw is famous for) while we find a place to swim.
Yup, we found a perfect place. We chilled and swam there for the whole afternoon. I just hope that this place can be really preserved. It’s really a perfect place for a getaway weekend, plus the fees were really cheap. Family + road trip + nature + food trip = I couldn’t ask for more.
College life update? Soon! :)
“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! :-)
