further update

Today is a holiday so I got a break from my exhausting classes. My dad arrived last night and after more than a year of not seeing him, mom and I definitely missed him. Of course, my parents decided to spend the holiday shopping for chocolates, food and a year’s worth of toiletries so I was unable to start on the five papers due next week. 

Aside from the overwhelming amount of papers I need to bullshit before the weekend ends, I received an email from the executive committee of the country’s model congress. It turns out I was accepted as a delegate together with 399 others. It’s open to high school and college student leaders nationwide and I was informed that they received more than 1,000 application forms. This is actually a huge surprise due to several facts:

  • it’s my first time to apply for something so serious as a model congress
  • it’s nationwide, for crying out loud
  • I am definitely no student leader
  • I learned about this model congress two hours before the application period closed
  • I sounded arrogant in my application form

In any case, I got accepted and I am definitely very happy. I hope this gets the ball rolling. 

Anyway, finals are coming up next week and I have make-up classes tomorrow and on Saturday which sucks ass. I have five papers to write, one being a final paper about Game of Thrones and Machiavelli, and a final exam for spanish. I really hope motivation finds me so I can work like a robot until I finish everything. I just need to get through the next 7 days as productive as ever.

I shall attempt to start on one paper tonight and hopefully finish all before the weekend closes. 

I feel really bad that I haven’t posted anything for the past two (?) weeks. Papers just continue to pile on top of one another and I was only able to actually be productive today after several days of slacking.

As it happens, I’ve exhausted my vocabary today with a magazine project so this post will end here. Hopefully I’ll be able to post more soon.

Adios, internet.

I wonder if I ever caught someones attention. Even if I was just walking among the crowd, I wonder if they wanted to get to know me or anything like that.

It’s hot as an oven in my bedroom and I can’t focus on studying for my exams.

There is a really cute guy sitting at the table next to mine and he keeps on looking in my direction. PLEASE BE IN MY SECTION FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE

Note to self: If you’re feeling productive, no matter how tired your body is, GO DO SHIT… or else you’ll regret not working the very next day.

typical sunday

It’s 5:39 on a Sunday afternoon and the weather is entirely bipolar. I have three papers due this week and a panel discussion to prepare for. As per usual, I leave all the important work to cram on a Sunday. As you can probably tell, I have had zero progress ever since I left the bed late in the morning. Zero inspiration, zero productivity. 

I am aware of the key to avoiding stress once the week starts… still, I sit in my chair, blissfully putting off the work that is hoarding my to-do list. 

Dad is coming home in two weeks. I haven’t seen him in a year. I missed him. 

My thoughts are all over the place. This post lacks coherence and organization. I feel like I’m slowly being swallowed up by tons of paperwork. My brain and body is weeks ahead and already in term break mode.

Applied for ASEAN Youth Summit Central Committee… hope it all wrks out x

hurricanes, power outages, philosophy and hollywood

The past few days have been a bit rough, given the recent hurricane the destroyed the peace in the country. Afternoon classes were suspended on Tuesday and the hurricane hit the city on Wednesday. I definitely missed the cold weather but having no electricity is a fucking nightmare. I immediately ran out of battery with all my gadgets and I was forced to endure an entire day without electricity and internet. Luckily enough, a shopping center just a bus ride away from my house was open the other day so I decided to pack my laptop, iPad and phone. I honestly looked so desperate just sitting there in the middle of the floor as I charged my laptop at the cinemas. 

Unfortunately, I was faced with the task of working on the abstract and outline for my final intro to philosophy paper. It was supposed to be due on Thursday but that’s actually the day I started working on it. Due to the lack of internet, I was forced to buy books for my topic. I bought Game of Thrones and Philosophy and The Republic. Needless to say, I am currently broke.

Now that the electricity is back on, I’m focused on finishing my outline so I can finally submit to my professor via email. But since I spent the last four hours playing Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, I would have to submit it tomorrow evening. The reason for my distraction with this game is that I found a cheat to give me infinite K charms and cash which is absolutely fantastic. I am currently a B-list celebrity so hopefully before I fall asleep, I get to be an A-lister!!
