It is already summer but I don’t care. Hahaha! Presenting the year-end highlights for 2014!
I failed Soil Mechanics. Though I got a high grade in the preliminaries, it did not mean I would pass the subject. I failed (as in unimaginable figure) midterms so it was expected. I aced the finals nonetheless. But it is not enough to make me pass the whole semester.
The saddest birthday ever. Starbucks Market! Market! celebrated it with me. Guilt-Free Indulgence in the house. They sang the birthday song for me and managed to make me smile. A bit.
For the first time, I treated my friends because it was my birthday (not my real day though). The only ones with me were Ryla, Kirby and Homer.
Summer. It was the last time I was classmates with Vee. We separated from the gang. I became close friends with Reil and Reniel.
I, with Vee, used to visit my mates from the other Theory 2 class when we had breaks. Reil and Reniel were eating lomi outside so I made Vee come with me to support me with “visiting” my crush. Hahaha
First semester. Vee’s not my classmate in any subject anymore. My only friends there were Reil and Reniel.
Thesis. My groupmates were Reniel, Kirby and Ryla. The idea came from us all but Kirby had the idea of using the raw material for our product. Not telling. Hahaha. Reniel was very enthusiastic of the project organization we found inside our HQ during our practicum. He, of course, was the project manager (leader). I was the project-in-charge (assistant leader AKA his secretary pwe!). Kirby was the deputy engineer. Ryla was the finance manager/engineer. The good thing about our schedules was we were divided into two — internal affairs (also known as the TTh Team consisting of Ryla and Kirby) and external affairs (the MWF Team consisting of Reniel and me) — each team had the same schedule. The MWF Team handled any thesis-related thing outside the campus. It includes site visits, interviews, library visits, and searching for a certain someone. The TTh Team did the work inside the campus.
We also visited De La Salle Henry Sy Library. It was so amazing! Ryla and I loved the place. It was so admirable. I saw many books that I wanted. I’d love to visit there whenever.
Maleficent is the only movie I together with Fidi and Kirby watched in the theater last year. The rest were downloads.
And speaking of downloads, I had a 500-Gb collection of anime and movies. It was actually more than 500 gig. I had to delete 100 series to fit new downloads. Talk about the sad life of a poor girl.
And I finished my life as a poor girl.
I rented a room with Kirby, Gela and Jeno at Vito Cruz for the whole semester.
It was pouring hard when Gela’s nanay invited us spontaneously to have fun. We knew no flood just to meet nanay. The flood was actually knee-deep and it was like that everywhere until Reniel’s condo. The wind was so strong. In the end, we went to Harrison Plaze to sing at a local videoke hub.
A friend and I unconciously started to try different restos and food trips we could think of that moment. A lot of first times actually.
This year alone, we applied for two companies for our OJT. The reason for leaving the first one was we got tired of office works.
We thought of the craziest excuse for not taking up exam.
Kirby, Fidi, Vee, Reil, Chezki and I watched Gela’s final performance as Tinik ng Teatro‘s actress. She was the lead character.
Gela’s sister, Acel, and I became friends. On her 18th birthday, she kidnapped us (Kirby, Homer and I) to Pansol, Laguna. They rented a private hot spring resort.
I attended for the first time an anime convention! Best of Anime was truly great! I went there with fellow anime fan, Shee. There I finally found Uruhara Kisuke’s hat! I bought it because he is my favorite.
Neb was our hero of the first semester.
I started to drink booze. Lowin’s birthday. Just for the heck of it.
Christmas party with a different set of friends. I was invited by Ryla, Jeff, Neb and Reniel. Why not? Of course it was a drinking party! We had exchange gifts. It was the only gift I received for Christmas.
Catherine is now a certified public accountant. When she came to Manila to work, we spent a lot of time together. On our last day, I went with her to look for the building she would work at.
My high school barkada, as always, went to Catherine’s home to celebrate her birthday. On December 31, I had a rough ride. No regrets though.
