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~!!

Flash Post 038: “Summer Break”

I know you probably didn’t because why would you? In any case, I haven’t posted for exactly a month because of a lot of reasons, one of which is because I’m experiencing writer’s block right now. It is very annoying and, most of the time, I question whether or not I’m a writer at all. I mean, I love writing and I have this blog, but does that really make a person a writer or are there some other requirements? I don’t know, but I’m going to write anyway because whether or not I am one, I love writing and I want to keep writing.

My third year of college ended a few weeks ago. I managed to pass all but two of my classes (so that’s basically 4/6 classes passed) – I failed one (as expected, sadly) and I have to take a removals exam for the other. Now, I’ve become a Philosophy major for approximately a month. A friend of mine described this semester as the “Semester of Enlightenment” when I told him about it, but right now, I feel lost during class discussions because I’ve forgotten EVERYTHING I learned from my previous Philosophy class, so I need to review my books and notes to be able to catch up with my classes this semester. BUT I have friends in both of my classes, they’re taught by amazing professors, and I’m really enjoying them, so everything’s well. Last meeting, we discussed about Plato’s Lysis in one of my classes and watched The Giver in my other class. I’m supposed to write a reflection paper about the movie, but I haven’t gathered my thoughts about it yet. I’m probably going to write it later or tomorrow.

This post I’m currently writing is actually one of my “I need to get my shit together” posts because I’m a bit messier than usual since “summer” started. Yes, I’m only taking general elective courses this semester, but I’m still aiming high and I would really love to learn about and understand Philosophy more. Obviously, I can’t slack off. And I have to fulfill org duties and review for the removals I have to take in July. I’m also planning to join a story writing competition with a story I haven’t even actively thought about yet.

And can I just rant about how I’m already twenty for a bit!?!?! It’s only been a few days and I don’t feel as different as I thought I would, but I also thought I’d be a better version of myself by this time, but I’m not. I’m probably as messed up (if not more) than I’ve always been. Although I know that I’m probably not as messed up as I think I am, I also know that I have ways to go before being the person that I am. I’m a work in progress and as long as I keep trying, I know I can be that smart, strong, and independent woman I want to be in the future.

I’m not sure if I was able to write everything I wanted to write about in this post, but I’m glad I was able to write because I haven’t written in a while. Hopefully, I’ll be able to post another “My Favorite Things” post very soon because the last one was about 2 months ago and I think it’s about time for a decent post after a while.
