Flash Post 018: Things I Probably Shouldn’t Do Again..

Well, I’m at the school library once again. And I just passed my homework that was given a WEEK before which I only tried answering today. I know it’s horrible and I’m such a mess right now. Thinking about it- when am I not a mess? HA. I should really get my shit together if I plan on getting through college and life.

AND THAT IS WHY I’M WRITING THIS POST!! I’m really stubborn, forgetful, and horrible at time management and prioritizing, SO I’m gonna try to list down the stuff I should never do again in this lifetime.. Well, they’re more like do it again AT YOUR OWN RISK stuff, really. To clarify, these are things we should NEVER do.. They’re not resolutions; they’re a list of “at least never mess up this much in life again”.

I AM NEVER…

  1. Cramming a week’s worth of problem exercises in 4 hours….
  2. Studying for TWO exams I’m gonna take on the same day.. the night/morning before….
  3. Cramming a lot of lecture’s worth of info.. in one night (give or take 12 hours..)….
  4. Drinking more than 2 servings of coffee in less than 12 hours….
  5. Cramming a writing assignment, given WEEKS BEFORE, a few minutes before its deadline….
  6. Attempting to binge watch an anime with 24 EPISODES within a day….
  7. Sleeping through a whole 2-hour/3-hour lecture class….
  8. Getting a sprain because my crush and I just passed by each other….
  9. Cramming for a recitation class by studying an e-book in my phone ON THE JEEPNEY RIDE TO SAID CLASS….
  10. Reading A READING THAT ISN’T THE SCHEDULED ONE during my service as a lector….
  11. Eating too much of something in such a little period of time….
  12. Spending A LOT OF MONEY and shipping stuff to someone I don’t even personally know…. who’s staying in ANOTHER COUNTRY….
  13. Taking another semester of Engineering Drawing (I passed already tho lmao)….
  14. Writing a blog post about how I thought my close friend was getting in the way of me getting in a certain section (which ended up with us not being as close as before)….
  15. Cutting a class to try enlisting in another class THAT HAS A SEPARATE DISCUSSION CLASS WITH TIME SLOTS THAT DO NOT FIT MY SCHEDULE…..
  16. …..

EVER AGAIN!!

Okay, that’s 15 + “….”  things. All things considered, I’d say it’s only a few of the things I’ve done that I should never do again. I’m a human being– a really messy one at that– so this much is understandable, I think. Well, I’m a work in progress and I sure hope I can remember to not do all those things again.

That’s it for this Flash Post (in the library 002), I guess haha. Till’ next time~!

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE



To my parents, if you’re reading this, yes I know I’ve made a lot of terrible mistakes. But I’m working on it and these things just take time. I’ll make you proud. I promise.

Me when I found out that the homework was due today:

Am I getting addicted to gif’s?

Probably..

Flash Post 017: Failures & Jenga

So it’s been a month and 12 days since school started and I’m still relatively okay. I’ve failed an exam already and I’m pretty sure I also failed the other exam I took on the same day, BUT I did pass one exam. I know 1 passed exam and 2 failed exams isn’t a particularly good start, but that’s exactly it! It’s only the start of the semester and I can still turn things around! I know I failed because I didn’t study enough, so I’ll make sure to study harder for the coming exams.

It’s my first time using my free internet, so I decided to post a flash post cos’ why not? I don’t really have anything to motivate you guys or to rant about, but I’m writing anyway because I love writing and there isn’t any reason why I shouldn’t write right now.

Well, probably statics, but I can study after I finish this haha.

Yesterday, I realized that Jenga isn’t just a game of stacking wooden blocks and taking pieces of it till’ the tower of blocks eventually crumble. No. It also tells something about love. See, the loser in Jenga is the one who causes the tower to fall down due to their move, while in love, for some people, the loser’s the one who falls first. And it’s a really scary thing to fall, well for me, at least, because you’re suddenly in this state of imbalance in all, or some, aspects of life wherein a single move can break you into pieces.

BUT the good thing about it is that when you fall, it’s not impossible for you to put yourself together again. You’ve got to learn from it and move on. It’s not an easy thing to do, I know, but it’s possible and if Jenga blocks can be stacked back together, so can we. It isn’t the best analogy, but it makes sense.. right?

Well, it’s a good thing I’ve never fallen for someone who does not and will never like me back HAHAHA.. *looks at past posts, especially the ones written by high school me*.. Umm… Well.. at least I’m good at constantly putting myself together again HA..

But seriously, I’ve never fallen THAT hard for someone and I hope that when I do, if I do, I’ll fall for a person that likes me back.

Besides the Jenga logic, I’d also like to give a shout out to all the people who help me get through life one day at a time. To those who help me understand the lessons, who make the class fun by being bubbly and energetic, who sit beside me and occasionally converse with me, who agree to me riding with them even though we’re not that close, to those who agreed to be partners with me (SERIOUS LIFESAVERS RIGHT HERE!!), to the one who I think is trying to reject me in a friendly way, and to everyone else who do seemingly little things that mean a lot to me — THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I should probably make a “Thank you!~” board or something because, really, without my family, friends, and these acquaintances (friends, really, but I don’t know how you feel about me) of mine, I don’t think I’d make it through a day. Seriously.

It might look like I’ve got loads of free time, but I don’t. And I should probably improve my time management skills ASAP. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post “My Favorite Things 00X” soon because I noticed I haven’t written one in a while.

Till’ next time~~~

ALSO, I haven’t slept in class for two days in a row and that’s a record for me already haha. I did have coffee today, but it still counts…

(Not So Short) Flash Post 016: Never

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) and I hope what happened yesterday won’t happen again. I’ll make sure of it.

How do you know if you’re wasting time? Well, for starters, I can tell if I’m wasting time when I know I have something more important to do (usually school-related), but I choose to do something else. You might say that you’re doing something important, as well, BUT let me tell you that cramming lessons for an exam the night before (or even hours before) and cramming a paper MINUTES before the online submission IS NEVER NOT HORRIBLE!! Yes, I’m talking from experience cos’ I’ve done both and I still regret doing so till’ this day (and probably for as long as I live).

So, if you know you’re procrastinating (even if you’re procrastinating by doing something that’s productive, but it isn’t what you’re supposed to be doing), I suggest you stop and face your exam or project HEAD ON. I know it’s easier said than done, like most things, but it’ll be worth doing it. Trust me, you’ll save yourself from utter insanity if you do it earlier than the deadline. Been there, done that… TOO MANY TIMES!!

How to spend time wisely? Write everything down! I’m no good with planners, but I usually keep track of important dates (exams, birthdays, family stuff, etc.) by using the calendar on my phone. Occasionally, I write down a “to-do list” on paper or on a sticky note in my computer, which I should probably do more often. Listing it down makes you aware of everything that has to be done, so I think it’s very helpful, well at least in my case.

My second tip would be to prioritize, like legit prioritizing, and stick to it. I know school stuff isn’t fun to do and you’d rather just binge watch a television series or read a good book BUT you’ve got to put it somewhere on the top of your list to avoid previously warned “utter insanity”. It’s also important to spend time with family and friends, so allot time for that, too. Make sure you’re well-being is also intact- you’re eating healthy, you’ve got your “me” time, you’re okay in all aspects (physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, etc.), and you’re happy (WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT). Also, joining an organization, trying new things, and rendering service to your community are very fulfilling activities, so when you’ve got the time, I suggest you engage in such activities, as well.

Lastly, for you to know that you’ve spent your time wisely, I think you should do the things you want to do, given that it doesn’t evade the first two tips. I just think not being able to do so is a waste of your little time here on Earth. Whether it’s choosing the college degree you really want (even if your parents want something else for you) or travelling outside your country and exploring the world. It’s not a waste  if you love what you’re doing (again, given that you’re not evading the first two tips). If you love writing, like me, make the time to write even during your busy schedules. It’s not easy, but I’ve seen people have social lives, pursue their passions, and keep their sanity (most of the time), ALL THE WHILE excelling in school-related stuff. If they can do it, so can we.

You trip and fall down a lot of times in life, but you can learn from these mistakes and become an improved version of yourself. I believe you can. So should you.

ALSO if you’re still thinking of procrastinating and cramming something, even after reading all that I’ve written in this post.. I crammed studying for TWO EXAMS hours before the exams and, trust me, you don’t want to go there. I still don’t know what I got, but I hope you never have to experience such helplessness.

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

P.S. I hope you’re not reading this while procrastinating, but if you are, I hope you’ve come to the realization that you should start getting shit done. Now.



Well, I took my statics and statistics exams yesterday and, though I did get to answer some items, I didn’t finish the exam and I don’t know anymore. What I do know is that I should never do that again. Nope. Never again.

I didn’t have classes today, so I ate out with friends and got a haircut. I was thinking of getting a haircut for quite some time now, actually, but this haircut is for the two exams I didn’t properly study for yesterday.

Actually, I think I’d have to cut off all of my hair to represent that one, but this’ll have to do. I’m not heartbroken nor am I going through anything.. I just didn’t study for those exams.

Till’ next time 🙂

Today is The Day~

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.

Life is a lot of things and it’s different for each and every one of us. Some live a life of fame and fortune while others live a simple yet wonderful life. But there are two things about our lives that we all have in common:

  1. Life is short and uncertain, and
  2. We all have a purpose in life, whether or not we know it already.

These two things make our lives valuable and, once we realize and accept these, it would be a mistake to take anything for granted. And, upon this realization, I hope that you understand how special you are. You were put in this Earth for a purpose – for something only you can do. You might not see it now, but you will someday. For now, be patient and trust God with your life for he knows what is in store for you. There is a time for everything and, surely, your time will come.

I know it’s not easy to wait for the day you realize why you were born. There are days when we’re faced with a challenge that seems too big for us to handle and when we’re so lost, lonely, and tired that we think we’ve already had enough of life. But I tell you, life is composed of both sunny and rainy days and that, as the quote goes: “Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in everyday”. You might be having trouble understanding who you are, what you want in life, and why these things are happening to you. But, though it sounds cliche and overused, there is a reason for everything. You might never find out, but God has a way of putting us back to the track wherein we experience life in the best way possible if you’d only put your trust in Him and live life with accordance to His word.

Also, life shouldn’t just be about waiting. I mean, there’s that, but it’s also about living life and enjoying what you have now! Don’t wait for the weekends, for summer and winter breaks, and for the challenges in your life to end because there isn’t one. What you have is only today and, cherish it wisely- today is enough.  Life is too short for regretting the things you don’t do, given that what you want to do is relatively safe (for your health and well-being). Make mistakes and learn from them! Be you and not care what anyone else thinks! Love the people you are blessed with in life, share this amazing love with others, and let go of those people who only bring you pain and sadness. You deserve more than that and you are worth more than you think.

I hope my message has reached you, but if not, here’s the gist:

You are an AMAZING human being and I know a lot of people love and care for you. You might not notice them, but they know how special you are and they do their best to make you realize that, too. I’m sure they’re doing their best, but understand that they are humans, too, and they can only do so much. I urge you to cherish these people because they won’t always be there and I don’t want you to end up regretting what you could’ve done differently.

If you think you’ve done too many mistakes, don’t let it ruin any more of your life. You’re only human and humans make mistakes. As long as you’re alive, you can change the way you live your life. Sure, you can’t change the past- what’s done is done. But you can learn from your mistakes and turn these into something that make you a better person. I believe in you and I hope you believe in yourself, too.

It’s never too late to chase after your dreams! Let your passions run wild and free! Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about yourself or make you feel that you can’t achieve anything in life, because that’s just bulls**t and screw them! This is your life and you only live it once! Live it in such a way that you’d have no regrets when it’s about to come to an end.

I wish you nothing but the great and best things in life, but if I were to choose two most important ones, I wish you a life full of happiness and love.



I just finished The Flash season three and I need the fourth season ASAP. It might not be that obvious as to why finishing the season made me write this post, but if you’ve watched it, you’d understand. So much love for that show and I can’t wait till’ the next one.

Also, I cried  A LOT during the finale, so if you’re planning to watch it or if you’re currently watching it, I hope you know that it isn’t just an action-packed show. You’re gonna need tissues and, if you’re not comfortable crying in front of other people, it would be best to watch it in private. Trust me on this one.

Lastly, this post includes a few sentences about God, so if we’re of a different religion, please apply it in the context of your own religion’s belief. I don’t mean to offend anyone and please believe that I have the utmost respect for you and your religion, so I hope you give the same respect to me and mine. Let’s all live happily in peace and share the love! ❤

P.S. Regarding my last post “To The Boy I Liked Once Upon a Time”… It wasn’t just a poem I found in some old notebook. It’s something I wrote just recently and I’m happily infatuated for someone at the moment. I hope I don’t mess it up, but in any case, he’s one of my silver linings during the week.

Ja ne~

To The Boy I Liked Once Upon A Time

I’d forgotten how scary it is to like someone,

To be extremely happy with them just being there.

I’ve liked a lot of guys, it could’ve been anyone.

But with you, I had no choice, it was like breathing air.

 

Let me just say that it is so hard not to like you.

For your beautiful smile, the sound of your laugh, I fell.

And the way you listen to me, that’s actually new.

I want to talk to you more, but these words- I won’t tell.

 

 

I like how we are now, I don’t want to change anything.

I really want to know you more, but for now, it’ll do.

Maybe you’d stop, I don’t know what tomorrow will bring.

Still, thank you, for today was a bit brighter with you.



 

I CAN’T BELIEVE I WROTE SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!! I was browsing through my old high school notebooks and I found this little poem of a hopelessly romantic person. We might have changed and I might not like him in the same way anymore, but this poem remains the same and it was all real, once upon a time.

To clarify, this poem’s writer didn’t experience heartbreak due to the addressee. We became close friends and I just realized that I loved him as a friend, not in a romantic way. Funny how I used to really like the guy I’m now super close to.

Okay. Au Revoir~

W02Y03

Two weeks into the semester of my third year in college and I’m alright. I still have my sanity intact and I haven’t fucked up, last time I checked. I don’t really intend to fuck up this semester, or any semester (past and future) for that matter. Sometimes, I just do. But I’ll try my hardest not to this semester onward… Well, rather I’ll try my best this semester onward haha.

I’ve just recently realized that binge watching The Flash during weekdays (AND weekends) isn’t such a good idea. It basically just replaced KDrama and anime as my “Ah lemme give myself some slack during dinner” bad habit. I love the series and I love the characters and I love the plot (well, I’m kinda if-y about it rn), but I have to study and practice more, especially since I’m taking the subject that I dropped last semester and re-taking a class that I failed last semester, too. I’m already in season three tho so I might binge watch it this long weekend HAHAHA… after studying ;).

Lately, I’ve been feeling more “out of place” at a certain place. Hmm well I’ve never really felt “in place” at that certain place, but I think I’ve forgotten how it felt like ’till now. I mean, there are times when I feel like I belong there and I love being part of something as great as that group, but during regular days, it’s just a bit depressing. A friend of mine asked me if I’d join the same group if I had a choice (time travel or something) and when I first thought about it, I couldn’t imagine not joining that group because of how long I’ve been part of it. It’s not an “no”, but it’s not a definite answer either. But now my answer would be a “yes”, but I would probably change most of the stuff I did wrong and didn’t do in the past. I’m not asking for an out, just a redo. But that isn’t possible now either. I guess all I can do now is to adapt (which is a REALLY hard thing to do) and to improve myself. How I feel about that place isn’t their fault AT ALL, it’s just me and I need to do something about it.

Also, for this post, I wanted to appreciate all the people in my life. First of all, I’d like to thank my family. Yes, we fight A LOT (we’ve been fighting more recently), but no matter how intense and hurtful and hurt we can get, I love them so much and I can’t imagine a life without them. (I tried not crying while writing that, but I failed.)

Secondly, I’d like to also thank my best friends, especially my best guy friend and my best friend who stays with me even though she knows that there is never a moment where I’m “calm, cool, collected” (there’s just messy and really f*cking messy), for keeping me relatively sane. Although I don’t get to see most of them often, I make the time to chat with them and invite them to hang out cos I’m clingy af.

Thirdly, a big “thank you” to the people I’m not that close with (See, I’d consider them all friends, but I don’t know if they feel the same way) but who make everyday more enjoyable. Thank you for letting me ride with you to places, for letting me drag you to spontaneous dinners, for helping me with school works, for having delightful conversations with me, and for making the walk to class less tiring and actually fun.

I’m very grateful to these people and extremely thankful for having been blessed with such amazing people in my life. So for the last (but certainly not the least) thank you, I’d like to thank God for these people and for guiding and protecting and blessing me every single day. I commit sins and make mistakes, but I am a child of God and I believe in His word. Things might seem difficult, right now, but God has a bright future planned for me and I’m going to trust Him.

So there you have it! My supposed flash post that became the basic summary of how my life rn is going. I know I swore a lot, then ended with a very religious paragraph. See, I haven’t sworn off swearing completely, but verbally, I’m swearing a bit less haha.

Before I end this post, let me just include some gifs cos I love how I can include gifs in my posts now XD.

Note: I guess I’m addicted to gifs now HAHAHA. *Insert stuff I can’t include here.. here”. And, if you’re still reading, I made the title “W02Y03” cos it’s the second week of my third year and I’ve been binge watching flash XD.

Also, if you’re not Christian, I completely respect your religious views and I hope you do the same for mine. LET’S SHARE LOVE AND HAPPINESS TO EVERYONE!!!
