I ♥ Fridays

I think I could make posts like these every Friday, because the longer I am here at work, the more I love Fridays. So really, it’s Thank God it’s Friday. :) Wheee.

What do I love about Fridays? It’s the feeling that the week is ending, and that there’s an entire two days ahead of you not to think about work. Everyone gets the chance to shed their stiff-looking business attires and dress down (or, in our case, slightly dress down because we’re not allowed to wear jeans and shirt and rubber shoes unless it’s announced by the HR). For some reason, everyone laughs louder, smiles wider and feels better when it’s a Friday. :)

Friday is truly one of God’s best gifts to the world. Agree? :)

My SFC household head told us last Sunday to compile our own Joy List for this month and then we’ll talk about them in our next household. :) I used to make lists like that, and I called them The Positives. Since today is a particularly happy Friday, here’s this week’s Joy List/The Positives. :)

  • Early morning and lunch time sessions with Jane, Anne and Reg a.k.a. “The Gang”.
  • Learning more on my “new” job.
  • Getting my permanent ID.
  • My new boss assuring me that he won’t surprise me with all the things I have to learn, and that he’d try to make it easy for me to transition to my new job.
  • Free merienda at Pancake House yesterday c/o Kok-see.
  • Being told that I’m photogenic (aww :D).
  • Free movie passes for World Trade Center last Thursday.
  • Lots of free food thanks to our SVP who is celebrating her birthday today (Happy Birthday po!).
  • Being able to accomplish the work given to me on time and correctly.
  • The newly established carpool and the fun times on the way home.
  • Free day tomorrow to work on a new layout for
  • Serious talks with my brother about our family and love life (!!!) among other things.
  • New music! New music!
  • Being able to break out of my shell and talk to more people in the office.
  • Being able to laugh, laugh and laugh some more.

I’ll post more later. Now it’s time to get fixing because it’s almost time to go home. :)

Have a great weekend everyone. :)

Sleeplessly dealing

It’s way past midnight, and I’m still awake. Not yet sleepy.

Okay, maybe a bit.

I have this feeling of impending doom. Bah. I’m just being paranoid for Monday. It’s not the end of the world.

I have to get used to this. I have to get used to this. It’s how things work in the world, and I’ve got to deal. Deal, deal, deal.

Although I have to admit, I wish I don’t have to.

Like I said, it’s not the end of the world.


Oh, and it’s really sad that RJ got expelled this week on Pinoy Dream Academy. :( Oh well.

Thursday Thirteen # 9: The Silver Screen, part 1

This week, it’s movie time. But not just any movie, but foreign movies, meaning movies not made here in the Philippines. Some of you might think that the movies I listed here are not foreign at all but that’s because you’re from the US. :P

Then again, maybe I should rename it to Hollywood movies instead. :P
Thursday Thirteen # 9: Hollywood Movies
Thirteen Favorite Foreign Hollywood Movies

  1. Bless The Child. One of my favorite movies that I only watched once. What? Yes, once. I didn’t like seeing Christina Ricci’s head falling off, but the little kid was so adorable. :) I have to rent this out again one time. :D
  2. Finding Nemo. This has been my most watched cartoon movie ever. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of Nemo and Marlin and Dory. Especially Dory. :D
  3. Cars. I watched this once in the cinema and I loved every bit of it. Mater is just too cute for words. :)
  4. High School Musical. Another loved and repeatedly watched movie. I love the songs, and I wish I was a part of the production team. :D It’s such a fun movie to watch.
  5. X-Men 2. I liked this one better then the prequel, mainly because of Nightcrawler. And Hugh Jackman is hotter here. Wohoo. :D
  6. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. It took a while for me to admit I like this. The story is quite dark, and I didn’t like imagining the mutated Hyde. But Mina the vampire rocks. :D
  7. My Sassy Girl (Yeopgijeogin geunyeo). Okay, now this counts as a foreign (Korean) movie. When I first watched this, I had a smile on my face when the credits started rolling. If you haven’t watched this yet, well you better because you’re missing a lot!
  8. Two Weeks Notice. This has a certain significance to me before (and yes, I have to stress that word), and now that its significance has worn off, I still like this movie. Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant are just hilarious. :)
  9. Bruce Almighty. Jim Carrey is the best man to cure any woes and he does great here. The last part kind of made me cry, and I liked it very much.
  10. Resident Evil 1. I loved the video game, and I definitely didn’t want to pass up on this movie. I watched this six times. :P Even if Jill Valentine, my favorite character, didn’t appear until the second movie, I liked this one better. :D
  11. Spider-man 2. I liked even the prequel, but this one is just better. :) I love the train scene, where people realized that Spider-man is just a teen.
  12. Now You See It…. I watched this in Disney channel and even if Alyson Michalka can be a bit…exaggerated, I like how the story unfolded.
  13. The Passion of the Christ. This is the movie that no matter how much I love it, I don’t want to watch it all over again “just for kicks”. This movie just made me cry buckets (and who wouldn’t?!), and it gave me a visual on how much Jesus really loved us for Him to allow Himself to go through that kind of torture. :-s Just gotta love this movie! :P

Thursday Thirteen # 8: Happy Pills

This week’s Thursday Thirteen will focus on the happy stuff: the things that make me smile and laugh and giggle like an idiot. :P I’ll keep this short because my past TTs were long. :P

Thursday Thirteen # 8: The Happy Stuff
Thirteen of Tina’s Happy Pills

  1. Chocolates. There’s nothing like chocolates to cheer me up. I know this is fattening, but seriously, chocolate makes me smile. :) I remember one time during AD-FOTO class when I was crying in the photo lab (oh memories!) and then Baban gave me a KitKat Chunky bar because he knew I loved those. Even if I was still crying, I managed to laugh afterwards. :) Chocolate does that, really.
  2. Ice Cream. One time, I was on my way up to the office back from lunch when some people were eating ice cream as dessert. One lady said that you can’t eat ice cream without smiling. I don’t know if that is true, but sure enough, ice cream is a big mood booster!
  3. Stars. It’s my favorite shape, if that’s what it’s called. I love drawing stars, putting stars in my notebook and seeing them in decorations and such. :)
  4. Sunflowers. I think it’s because I was born during the summertime (here in the Philippines anyway) that’s why I love sunflowers. Sunflowers are just so bright and cheerful looking.
  5. Long emails from friends. I love writing, ergo I also love writing letters. I love sending and receiving long emails from friends, especially those I haven’t heard from in a while. :)
  6. Random text messages that show care. I don’t really quite SMS quotes, but I like receiving random text messages, like a simple “How are you?” or “I hope you’re fine” or even a “Take care”…or even a funny text conversation with a friend (thank God for unlimited texting!). I know it can be highly impersonal, but it’s nice to receive and save assurances from people who you know cares for you.
  7. Kittens, cats and puppies. Enough said. I love seeing pictures of these animals because they’re just so cute. That’s why these websites are always open in my browser. :P
  8. New books to read. Is it any obvious how much of a book-a-holic I am? :) I love book sales, second hand bookstores and just books! Having a stash of unread books waiting to be read just makes me smile. :)
  9. Heart to heart talks with friends. I’m not much of a “bar” or night out person because the loud music totally hinders me from being able to talk and to listen to the people around me. I love having lunches or dinners or coffee with friends where we talk and laugh over meals. :)
  10. Cheesy Pinoy movies. Guilty pleasure! :P I share this love with my brother. We love to watch cheesy Pinoy flicks, no matter how corny they can be. :)
  11. Encouragements and commendations from higher ups in the office. Self-explanatory. :P
  12. Having new [Christian] music to listen to. Yes, we just have to love this. :)
  13. Spending time with my family. I’m sure everyone’s own families drive you crazy at some point, and I’m no exception. But still, my family is the best. :) Todo para la familia: everything for the family — did I get this right? :P

Resilience. That sounds nice, isn’t it? I think I have a particularly resilient personality. Or persona. Or soul. Whichever applies. Yes, I was kind of sad when I posted the previous post, but a few minutes after I posted that, I got to talk to some of my friends and then I’m all better. :) I snap back pretty quickly in moments like that, if I do say so myself.

I’d say more, but I am at a loss for words. Weird, ano? It’s only Tuesday, but I’m wishing it’s Friday already, but at the same time I don’t want this week to end yet. More weirdness. :P

I better go now. :)

Thursday Thirteen # 6: The Word

I will be attending a Bible Study later at the office with (Ate) Jane during lunch time, and I am excited about it! I didn’t know there was something like that here. So in relation to that, this week’s Thursday Thirteen is thirteen of my favorite Bible verses. :)

Thursday Thirteen # 4: Cartoons
Thirteen Favorite Bible Verses:

  1. “I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV)
    This verse was my anchor verse back in high school, especially when I was always faced with stress from schoolwork. I was an overachiever back then, and I always seem to carry big amounts of schoolwork and even if it doesn’t show back then, I get really worn out in the middle of it. This verse reminds me that Christ will always give me strength for whatever I have to do. I particularly like The Message’s translation of this verse: “Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.” :)
  2. “We bring nothing at birth, we take nothing with us at death. The Lord alone gives and takes. Praise the name of the Lord!” (Job 1:21 CEV)
    I’ve always admired the story of how Job was faithful to God even in the midst of all his troubles. This particular verse reminds me that everything I have is from God and none is mine. It reminds me to praise God whatever my circumstance is. :)
  3. “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG)
    This verse used to be my banner verse for my love life. I can safely say I’ve grown up from that already, but still, this verse brings me hope, especially when I was kind of down on job hunting and post graduation woes. When things are just too blurry for me to see, it’s comforting to know that God has a plan that is for my good.
  4. “I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me! That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.” (Isaiah 43:4 MSG)
    ♥ ♥ ♥ :)
  5. “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.” (Proverbs 3:5 MSG)
    This is for control freaks like me. :) I know that trusting God fully is one of the hard things to do in life, and this verse is a reminder of what I must always do.
  6. “I shall keep silent and not open my mouth, for this is Your work.” (Psalm 39:10 Christian Community Bible)
    My mouth has gotten me in trouble for a lot of times. :P I was kind of sad about something and I badly needed enlightenment one night, so I was browsing through Psalms and I got this verse which just hit the bullseye. :D
  7. “God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!” (Exodus 14:14 MSG)
    I love this translation of this verse, and it’s related to verse # 6. :)
  8. “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NAB)
    Sometimes when I get in the middle of something that I don’t understand or is difficult, I ask God why is it like that. And God simply answers me with this. I read somewhere that God reveals His will to us in bite-size pieces so we won’t be overwhelmed with how big His plan for us is. This verse also reminds me that whether it is good or bad, it will always work out for God’s purpose, which is one thing I know I can trust with my life. :)
  9. “I want you to live as free of complications as possible. When you’re unmarried, you’re free to concentrate on simply pleasing the Master. Marriage involves you in all the nuts and bolts of domestic life and in wanting to please your spouse, leading to so many more demands on your attention. The time and energy that married people spend on caring for and nurturing each other, the unmarried can spend in becoming whole and holy instruments of God. I’m trying to be helpful and make it as easy as possible for you, not make things harder. All I want is for you to be able to develop a way of life in which you can spend plenty of time together with the Master without a lot of distractions.” (1 Corinthians 7:32-35 MSG)
    Haha, enough said. :) This is a reminder for singletons like me who get lonely once in a while. :P
  10. “Let us not become weary in doing good for at proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NIV)
    There are times in my walk with God that I get tired of doing what I am doing and I wonder if all this YFC/SFC service and doing good is all worth it. We all get to that point (I believe it’s called burnout :p), and this verse saved me just in time from having another one of those.
  11. “Here’s what I want: Give me a God-listening heart…” (1 Kings 3:9 MSG)
    Simple, straightforward and something I pray for as well.
  12. “…and after you have suffered a little he will bring you to perfection…” (1 Peter 5:10 Christian Community Bible)
    The Thesis Verse! This verse has brought me through the hard times we all call thesis. :) Through all those consultations that made me squirm and those delayed defenses…this just got me through all the emotional and spiritual strain that thesis gave me. :)
  13. “Incline my heart to follow Your will and not my own selfish desire.” (Psalm 119:36)
    My anchor verse for almost four years now. :D As my friend told me once, there’s nothing worth praying for than God’s will in your life. :)

* The Bibles I have available with me are the Christian Community Bible and The Message Bible. Much thanks to Bible Gateway for other translations. :)

Thursday Thirteen # 5: Materialism

Now I’m back to Thursday Thirteen. And this week is payday week! :) Yay! I got my first pay slip earlier and it’s not that much, but still! It’s not exactly my first salary ever, but it’s my first salary in my first job so it’s a big thing. :P So I’ll be materialistic (kinda) this week. :P

Thursday Thirteen # 4: Cartoons

Thirteen Things I Will (Most Probably) Buy/Save For With My Salary:

  1. A birthday gift for my brother. He’s turning 24 on the 22nd of September and this is probably the first time I’ll be giving him a gift that came from my own money. :) I already asked him what he wanted and he told me (Folded and Hung slippers), and I told him he should come with me so I can get the right size for him. I’m thrilled to actually be able to buy him a gift. :D
  2. A birthday gift for my dad. I have no idea how I can give it to him though, because he’ll probably be in Saipan that time. Hmm. But I want to buy him a gift still (and of course he’ll see this because he reads my blog. Haha!). Funny, because it’s actually my dad’s birthday on his birth certificate today, but his birthday really is at the 18th of October. Something with his birth certificate and registration that’s why he has another birthday. We usually celebrate the 18th one. To think I actually really thought that my dad was born twice.
  3. A birthday gift for my mom. My mom is celebrating her birthday on the 20th of November, and I haven’t gotten him anything EVER. Now that I’m earning, I really want to treat her to something. She’s been wanting to be treated at a spa for so long and I might just get her a free body scrub and massage or something. :)
  4. Apple iPod USB Cable. My iPod USB cable’s gone kaput. :( I don’t know where it went, but it’s gone. :( Sad. I know I used it last May when I reformatted Ginger but now I can’t find it. Oh well. I think it costs around Php1000 (USD 20). Ouch.
  5. New eyeglasses. My eyeglasses has been calling to be changed since last year, or something. I want dark-framed squarish shaped ones because I like the way I look there. :P Haha. Intellectual but not that old-looking, like what my glasses do to me now.
  6. iPod mini Belkin leather case (pink or white) or an iPod mini iSee. My brother kept on teasing me about how I keep on breaking our iPods. While whatever iPod is in his possession always looks so pristine while using it (and he doesn’t have any other case except the iPod silicon on the 40GB iPod), while I end up scratching whatever I have with me. My earphones always conk out first and in fact, my iPod min has been replaced twice already. Talk about making use of my warranty a lot. :P Haha. An iPod case would surely help me take care of this toy better. :P
  7. Come to think of it, I want the new iPod Nano. The pink one. It is just like my iPod mini though, only thinner and colored. I wonder if Apple will release a pink iPod Nano with 8GB capacity? I hope so. :) 4GB is getting too small for me, really.
  8. Faber Castell 24 colored pencils. Haha! I always found these brand of colored pencils so expensive, but I’ve always wanted to own a set. :) I love, love, love colored pencils! I love to color things with them because they color just right. :D Haha, pretty soon, I’ll get myself a set just to indulge myself. :) Where will I use this? Planner designs, of course. You can never go wrong with colored pencils. :P
  9. Books. Of course. I still have about 5 unread books at home, but I never denied myself of having an addition to the list. Once paperback versions of Charmed Thirds (Megan McCafferty), Out of Egypt (Anne Rice) and The Fourth Bear (Jasper Fforde) comes out, I’ll get myself copies of that. And those other books that are in my to buy list and those that people would recommend. Haha, I’m such a bookaholic. I think it’s because when I was a kid, I was only supposed to have one book a month. Now that I’m older, I think I’m going to let myself indulge in that once in a while.
  10. And in addition to #9…I think I’ll buy myself a better bookshelf. To fit all my favorite books. Now if only I could fit that in my room…
  11. Give my first contribution to our parish and for Gawad Kalinga. I have to admit that I’ve been contributing to GK for a long time already, but it’s always with my parents’ money (i.e. something I asked from them, or my allowance). This time it’s coming from me and I want to be able to contribute to our family’s GK fund. And to our parish. And to SFC too. It wouldn’t hurt to give and help a bit. :)
  12. Gifts and a Jollibee trip for my GK kids. I haven’t been to any Gawad Kalinga site for so long already, and I really, really want to be able to visit them again soon! I owe my GK kids in Baseco a birthday treat and gifts for her birthday last May. I better to get them ready for a big treat since I’ve been absent for so long! Christmas, you think?
  13. Last, but not the least…CHRISTMAS GIFTS! :) I need to save up enough money if I want to buy my family and friends Christmas gifts. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but I really want to get them something really nice this year, since it’s my first Christmas with a job. Even if they’re just simple tokens and all. I’ve always meant to give gifts for Christmas but things don’t work out as much as I want to. This should be fun! :)

Thursday Thirteen # 4: Cartoons

Because I’ll be going to work next week, I’ll be missing my weekday dose of cartoons…so that is what my fourth Thursday Thirteen is going to be about. All the cartoons that I’ve loved and liked ever since I was a kid. :) Memory lane, here we go!

Thursday Thirteen # 4: Cartoons
Thirteen Cartoons I Like/Loved Since I Was a Kid:

  1. Bishoujou Senshi Sailormoon (image courtesy of
    Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon.
    This has got to be my most-loved cartoon ever. I loved it from the first commerical that ABC-5 put on air. I watched it religiously; cried when I missed an episode and cried when the first season ended with all four of the Inner Senshi dead except for Sailormoon. I bought merchandise — toys, cards, action figures, paper dolls, pop-up dolls, coloring books, activity books, joined a local Sailormoon fans club, wrote fanfiction and even made my own senshi. I loved everything about Sailormoon, and to be honest, I kind of miss this series, especially when ABC-5 didn’t show the last season.
  2. As Told By Ginger (image by
    As Told By Ginger.
    I heard this one time at Nickelodeon, and I knew I was going to like it. I like how As Told By Ginger tackles more mature issues from other cartoons, and the fact that they actually change clothes there makes me feel like they’re real people. The characters are far from perfect and they evolve as the episodes go on. I also love how Ginger could be so full of wisdom from all the things she learns in her life. :) In fact, I named my laptop after Ginger Foutley. :DOne of my favorite As Told By Ginger quotes is at the very last episode, The Wedding Frame. Okay, wait, make that two favorite quotes because they’re both too amazing not to post here:

    “…That’s what life is all about. You know we’re not put in this earth to live perfect lives, where we never get hurt, never make mistakes. We’re put here to hurl ourselves head first into this crazy world, and the bruises and scrapes you get along the way, it just means you’re living the life!” – Lois Foutley

    “And if time teaches anything in from this crazy world, it’s that nothing worth having ever comes easy.” – Ginger Foutley

  3. Martin Mystery
    Martin Mystery.
    At first I didn’t like this series because I thought it was corny…but then I caught an episode and I liked it! I started getting hooked on it and now it’s one of my early morning routines (10:00am on Disney Channel). I love Martin’s comical attitude, Diana’s logic and most of all, Java’s caveman cuteness. :D Have you noticed that Java the Caveman’s eyes disappear when he smiles? So cute! :D
  4. Sky Dancers. Back when we were kids, we’d always have a race on who was to claim the best character in a cartoon series. Whoever says, “Ako si [name of character here] (I’ll be [name of character])” will be able to claim the best one there. That was why I didn’t like Starla and the Jewel Riders because I didn’t get to claim my favorite one there. Sky Dancers‘ airing followed Starla and then I was able to claim Angelica as my character there. I liked her simply because she was blonde, and I like her love team with Breeze. I didn’t get to finish the series because of school, though.
  5. Hey Arnold!
    Hey Arnold!
    It was one night at home that I started watching this series, and to be honest, I kind of crushed on Arnold. Haha. I love this series because it’s just so fun to watch; with Arnold’s niceness and Gerald and Helga’s rants and meanness. My favorite character would have to be “ever so sweet” Lila. :) I got to watch the full-length movie and I loved it when Helga professed her love for Arnold and kissed him. :))
  6. Totally Spies
    Totally Spies. I can’t remember where I first watched it, but I knew I liked it immediately. I like Sam the most among the three of them and even if most stories are redundant and linear. I have to admit, though, the spies really are fashionable and almost too perfect. This series also inspired me to want to write a spy novel.
  7. Kim Possible (image by Wikipedia)
    Kim Possible. Since we had Disney Channel a bit too late at home, I got to know Kim Possible a bit too late. Needless to say when I got to know her, I started to like the series because it is just so darn cool. :D The series gives off the ultimate teen hero thing: overachiever, cheer squad captain (which shows she’s not exactly homely), the loyal best friend and sidekick plus being the hero on the move without having any fancy costume. Who wouldn’t love to be Kim Possible???
  8. Sara, ang munting prinsesa
    Sara, ang Munting Prinsesa. This is the Japanese adaptation of A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This is one of the best series when I was a kid and I watched this entire series in ABS-CBN. :D Sarah is the perfect paper doll, if you ask me. :D
  9. Remi (image by Animax)
    Remi (Nobody’s Child). I got hooked on this summer before sophomore year high school. It’s also one of the ABS-CBN morning cartoons before. There’s this other version of this, the one with the boy but I liked the girl version better. Plus I liked the entire Remi-Mattia thing. :D This is being shown in Animax now.
  10. Fushigi Yuugi. I got to watch this during the time that anime was the rave in the country. I got to watch this at AXN and I liked the storyline. I really didn’t like Miaka though and I often wondered why they all fell in love with her. And I LOVE Tasuki. :D
  11. Danny Phantom
    Danny Phantom. This is one of the NickToons I really loved besides As Told By Ginger. The concept is quite original, the characters are funny (I really like Sam; in fact I named my iPod after her). The story is quite original too, and as I have heard, Danny Phantom has the most evil NickToon movie ever. I wish this show is popular though, so there would be more websites about it.
  12. American Dragon Jake Long (image by
    American Dragon Jake Long.
    When I saw the preview of American Dragon Jake Long, the first thing I noticed was it was like Danny Phantom, only Jake is half dragon instead of half-ghost and instead of seeing ghosts, it’s all on magical creatures. The series is quite good though. Jake is less angsty than Danny, though Trixie is a lot like Sam with regards to the nonconformist thing. I like the Huntsgirl/Rose and Jake angle though. :)
  13. The Emperor's New School
    The Emperor’s New School. And finally! There is only one cartoon series that can make me laugh out loud and this is it! This show has got to be the funniest cartoon I’ve ever watched, including both movies. I love all characters: Kuzo, Malina, Kronk, Yzma, Pacha, even the teacher! My weekend is not complete without my dose of Kuzco and company. :D

Well, that was fun. :D This is a long post too, much thanks to the pictures. :D

Thursday Thirteen # 3: The Life Update

Let’s go simple this time. It’s time I update everyone about what’s happening in my life (like that’s so interesting, but then again this is my blog so I can post that :p). And this week has been quite interesting, so let’s get on with it. :)

Thursday Thirteen # 3: Things that happened to me this week

Thirteen Things that Happened to Me Since Thursday

  1. Friday, I went to school to visit and to support my friend Tuesday on her final thesis defense. Her defense was at 11:30, and I got there around 9:00am, so I hung out at the YFC Tambayan first and talked with the people there. Gosh, I missed the people there so much! :)
  2. Happy arrived a little while later and we went on our way to Gokongwei building to support Tuesday. We talked, then she slept at the lobby while I read as Tuesday’s defense went on.
  3. My iPod broke down. :( Actually, it’s my brother’s iPod because we switched so I was enjoying the benefits of having a 40GB iPod. The hardware corrupted and the sad iPod started showing up. Cute, but that it meant no music. :(
  4. While waiting, I got a call from one of the companies I got interviewed at weeks before, telling me that my job offer is ready. I scheduled a meeting for Tuesday next week.
  5. Tuesday went out a bit before 2:30pm, and their temporary verdict for their defense was re-demo. That meant that their group is one step closer to passing, but they had to do something more. Sooo….that meant Tuesday wouldn’t be able to go with the rest of us for the Elim Singles table talk. :( But oh well, it’s the last one she’s ever going to do something for thesis, so it’s okay.
  6. I met up with Bea, and she updated me with her life over some hot chocolate. Then we went to Gox to meet with Tue again. She got ticked off over some thesis thing and she had to do some things before we left for Elim Singles. Then I met up with Bung when Bea disappeared and she told me about what’s up with her life and YFC-DLSU. Then Bea came back and we met Happy at the LRT station to go to Katipunan. :)
  7. Elim Singles Table Talk! The Veggie Girls minus Tuesday spent most of the time laughing at some things only the three of us could laugh about that night. Haha. We even had a pseudo drinking session — with water. It looked real enough! :p

  8. Saturday and Sunday was very…blah. We were supposed to go out but I ended up sleeping half the time. Finished reading The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde.
  9. Monday, I finally got to crack Gamehouse’s Mystic Inn and Delicious Deluxe. Spent most of the day reading and not worrying about my schedule the next day. ^^;
  10. Haw Flakes - click to see bigger imageTuesday, I went to the office of the company who called me last Friday to get the job offer. Read it and talked to my mom and brother about it. I bought The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. Then we went grocery shopping. Grocery is always fun when I’m with my brother because we ended up getting a lot of snacks that we normally don’t buy because we don’t have money. :D We got to buy Haw Haw Milk Candies and Haw Flakes (some of my childhood candies :D).
  11. Tuesday finally passed her thesis. She’s going to graduate this October! :D All our prayers were answered :)
  12. Wednesday, I spent most of the day calling the HR of Sun Cellular to clarify some things. I went to the mall with my mom and spent some time in prayer at the Adoration Chapel at the EDSA Shrine. I finally made up my mind and made one of the biggest decisions in my life. The discernment I did was a big thing too, and I’ll reserve it for another post. :)
  13. And last, but not the least! Today, I accepted the job offer. :) I HAVE A JOB! Praise God!
