Flash Post 042: I’m on top of the world~

Can I just say how great God is and how blessed I am right now? Not only did I get the highest possible grade equivalent in BOTH of my Philosophy classes, but I also got the schedule I wanted for the coming semester. Sure, I still need 1-2 classes, but it is TRULY AMAZING how I still got the classes I wanted given that the odds were against me (probability-wise). PLUS, I got MORE than the score I needed for the removals exam, so GOODBYE STATISTICS!! I know that things won’t always go my way and God ALWAYS has a better plan for me, but I’m just super duper happy that God has graced me with the blessings I want and need for my life. Thank you so much, Lord! You are the best! To God be the glory!!

My fourth(-ish) year in college starts THIS Friday and I don’t think I’ve completely accepted that fact. I mean, I’m enjoying my break right now and I’m pretty okay with school starting, BUT AM I REALLY OKAY? These remaining days are the last of my summer break this year AND I’M TURNING FOURTH YEAR ALREADY!! I’m pretty excited for school, especially since I have the exact same schedule as my college best friend! But am I really ready for what’s to come??

Well, right now, I’m trying to cherish the remaining days of my break by binge watching The Flash ( Season four episodes only until I get up-to-date), probably some Riverdale after, and if I still have time, maybe an Asian drama or two. I also want to finish the book I’ve been reading, The Future of Us, before school starts. Hopefully, I get to meet up with my elementary best friend this week, then there’s the long-awaited hangout with one of my Philosophy classes. OF COURSE I also have to get the 1-2 more classes I need for the semester. So, yes, this week would probably be anything but boring, which is exciting, too, in it’s own ways.

I’m also planning to FINALLY write the My Favorite Things post I’ve been promising to write since June (?). I haven’t gotten into it yet, but I’ve collected a few of the stuff that have become my favorites since after MFT Post. I don’t know when I’ll get to post it, but hopefully it’ll be posted by this week.

Well, that’s that for now. I’m pretty sure I’ll be posting more stuff this week, so till’ next time~!!

(Not So Short) Flash Post 016: Never

Reblogging my own post because it’s about to be as relevant as it can get.

The Girl With The Pen

I just noticed that, before this post, the last flash post (Flash Post 015: Summer Rant) was written a bit more than 2 months ago! Well, I wasn’t able to post anything last July so…

Anyways, I’ve learned an important thing about life recently due to a rather terrible event. I’ve learned that we shouldn’t take time for granted because the time that has already passed is time lost- you can never get it back. Our time here on Earth is very short and uncertain, so be careful how you choose to spend it. It’s an awful feeling to want to go back in time to change things when you can’t.

I’m really no good with time management and prioritizing. I’m easily distracted, forgetful, stubborn, and a bit lazy, to be honest, so basically I’m the worst at time management haha. But I’m working on it (sort of)…

Flash Post 041: FrIEday

I have to take a removals exam this Friday for a class I didn’t quite pass (nor fail) last last semester (basically the second semester of my third year). It’s a pass or fail exam – If I pass/fail the exam, I pass/fail the class. When I had learned I had to take the removals exam, I kind of told myself that I’d progressively study for it, but here I am cramming for the exam a few days before, once again.

I find the need to write because I feel super stressed out about it (which could have been avoided, just saying) and I don’t think I can study properly with this kind of mindset. Honestly, the mindset I have right now is the mindset of someone who has already failed an exam she hasn’t even taken yet, who has lost a battle she hasn’t even fought. AND I CANNOT HAVE THAT KIND OF MINDSET, ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW.

If you’ve been reading my posts (which I don’t really expect you to do), you’d know that I made a pretty huge mistake when I gave up on a certain class last last semester. It was only the second exam and I just gave up entirely. I still attended classes, of course, but I was asleep for most of it and I couldn’t find the motivation to study for it. Obviously, I ended up regretting that decision of mine because now I won’t be graduating on time. There’s no shame in that, really, because I believe that people should go at their own pace and that everyone has their own timeline, but it really could’ve been avoided.

Now, I’ve never passed a single exam in the class I need to take a removals exam for. NOT A SINGLE ONE. But giving up now would not only cause a domino effect in the future (which would only worsen the situation I’m in right now) but it would also mean that I gave up before even trying AGAIN. It would mean that I took the seemingly easier way out now (which would be giving up) to only suffer the probably horrible consequences later on.

I am seriously trying to grasp any sort of motivation right now to motivate me enough to study for my exam. I’m thinking that maybe this will finally be the exam that I will pass in that class. Maybe I can score even higher than the score I need to pass just to prove that I can do more than what’s expected of me. Maybe I’m more than what I give myself credit for. I don’t know.

It’s the end of the post and I’m still really struggling with my mindset. I need to pass this exam, but if I’m going to pass it, I need to believe that I can pass it.

Flash Post 040: How Do You Finish Writing A Paper Due ~10 Hours From Now?

  1. You ponder on your life decisions that eventually led you to cramming the paper hours before the deadline.
  2. You write a COMPLETELY different thing on your blog ranting about how you are unable to finish the required paper.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 while you are browsing Facebook, Twitter, and possibly, Youtube until you have the will to carry on writing the paper.
  4. As you perform step 3, you realize time is running out and it’s either you pass a messily written paper or take the risk of passing late in the hopes of being able to write a decent paper within a few hours.
  5. You just kinda go back to step 1 until you finish your paper.
  6. Cry.

I SERIOUSLY DON’T KNOW HOW I’M GOING TO FINISH THIS PAPER PROPERLY. I CAN WRITE THE HOPELESS ROMANTIC AND EMOTIONAL PART, BUT HOW DO I INTEGRATE IT WELL WITH THE INTELLECTUAL PART WHEN THE INTELLECTUAL PART HAS TO CONTAIN THE EXPLANATION AND PROOFS OF MY CHOSEN CONCEPT FROM PHAEDRUS WHICH IS BASICALLY THE ENTIRE SECOND SPEECH!?!?!?!

And I’ve managed to drag her into my mess again. How much of a fcked up friend can I get?? :((

Random Shoutout 008: “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by Panic! At The Disco

I’ve been (sort of) a fan of Panic! At The Disco’s music and music videos. It’s just super low key though, like my siblings were into it, so I listened to some of their songs and I liked it enough to listen to their other songs. I haven’t really gone deeper into the music and into the artists themselves, but I really appreciate their music.

And today I got the chance to their “new” song (well, it was released last June 21, so it’s kinda new?). When I first listened to it, I was doing homework, so I was on a different tab of my browser. I thought it was a great song and all that, so I thought of replaying it. But before that, I browsed through the comments and people were commenting about how it was a happy and sad at the same time and how only Brendon could pull such a thing that puts together gratitude and bitterness towards fame, SO I became curious about what they were talking about.

When I watched it again, I didn’t change tabs and finished the music video until the end and OH MY GOSH IT IS AMAZING AND EVEN GREATER THAN I FIRST THOUGHT IT WAS! Sure, the messaged was conveyed through simple means, but THE MESSAGE in the video and the song just leaves you in awe for a while and in love with it.

Now, I’m probably going to “research” more about Brendon starting with this video haha

Flash Post 039: Deductively Valid Arguments

It’s 2:40 in the morning and I am once again studying for an exam that I will be taking on the same day. Good morning!

I am surprisingly doing better than I expected in my Philosophy classes. I can still do better than this though. A lot better.

There’s a guy in my Logic class who got perfect scores in the diagnostic exam before our professor taught us anything (about the course) and in the mock exam that we took yesterday. What a dude!

I am writing this post because I need to stay awake until I finish at least till’ my sixth reading, so that I could finish the four remaining readings (all related to each other) in the later (the legit morning that I recognize because right now is just “late-r night”).

Some of my friends are graduating and I’m really really happy for them. Seeing them graduate and succeed makes me feel a messy mix of envy, shock, and admiration. At my current academic standing, it’s almost impossible for me to attain Latin honors when I graduate, but I kind of still want to despite the odds.

I have a midterm exam tomorrow in my logic class (which is the exam that I am currently studying for) and I have to write a midterm paper for my other Philosophy class due Sunday night. For the midterm of a summer term, this is pretty do-able compared to last year (probably because I took Calculus and Sociology last year).

I am still working on my next “My Favorite Things” post and I’m kind of happy that it’ll have a lot of content that I actually really enjoy nowadays when it’s done.

I sometimes wonder why and how I’m such an inefficient person despite being a student taking up a course that stands for efficiency and effectiveness.

I have one serious crush and a few happy crushes. I’m still very much happy with seriously crushing on that one guy though. But it’s also fun having  happy crushes, especially when you have a friend who has the same taste as you and there’s absolutely no awkwardness.

I really need to lose weight because I want to try ice skating again and I gained weight over the past few months. Argh. Also, I want to fit in those pretty dresses on sale that I see whenever I go to the mall.

Why can’t I just be like those people who eat A LOT but never gain any weight/never get fat?

It’s 3:00 and I have to get back to studying. Till’ next time~!!

Random Shoutout 007: Jeremy Jordan

It’s raining, it’s pouring~~

And I’m just a little bit in love with Jeremy Jordan’s singing.

 

So much love for his singing, especially in the videos above. I haven’t had the chance to dig deeper into his singing videos, but so far, those are my favorites.

I don’t want to leave the campus yet because my dormitory doesn’t have WiFi, but…

 

IT’S ALREADY RAINING CATS AND DOGS AND NOW I’M STUCK!!

Frk. I probably should’ve gone home when I could.

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE.

GO HOME BEFORE IT STARTS RAINING HARD PLUS LIGHTNING.
