Fighters, we are :)

Hindi yung buong kanta gusto ko idedicate sa UP haha kasi hindi appropriate. Pero may mga lines na SOBRANG bagay :) I LOVE UP DILIMAN FOREV :) Maroons: fighters, we are :)

"After all that you put me through,
You think I'd despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
'Cause you've made me that much stronger..."

"...Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
Cause it
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter..."

"...Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you..."

At dahil GRADUATING na ko, mas feel na feel ko talaga to ngayon HAHA :) Hell week is FUN ;) If we were spoonfed and sheltered, life would have been oh-so-boring. Trials are like the herbs in your favorite gourmet dish-- they add spice to life :)

Running on caffeine, hope and determinism

The night before this, I worked my butt off until 6 in the morning. I missed the one class I've been waiting for my whole psych major life---the time when we get to have our own actual human brain samples---because I had too many requirements left to do. If I do get to finish all the stuff I have to finish for tomorrow before sleeping, maybe I'd only have an hour or two left to sleep.

I am currently run by caffeine.

But I've been like this since last week. The sole time I got to really unwind and do nothing was during our 16th month (last January 8, which was just a week ago but already it feels like it has been two weeks since, given everything I've been doing). And today's the only time I really have to buy a grande frappe.

The point? I've noticed that more than all the coffee in the world (I used to always buy whenever I have something to finish---something that contributed a lot to my now thin bank account---but now I'm really really doing my best to not spend), it's really my hope and determination that keeps me running. Like I said, I used to buy from Starbucks or Seattle's almost everytime I need to finish something. But then, a number of them were useless since I ended up sleeping, anyways.

Having the hope that things will turn out okay and the determinism to keep going and going---these two are the things that matter more.

Need R&R sooooooon!

I've decided to be a cheerleader :)

The first week of classes for this month has been anything but laidback.

Pero sinong stressed??? HINDI SI RHEA :)

I'm really proud of myself for staying positive last week despite the super hectic schedule. I wouldn't go as far as saying I've done everything I had to do. In fact, I'm a little behind schedule. But then, that's okay :) At least I know I'm more industrious now than I was before :) And the best part of it was that I stayed positive. Sure, there could be physical signs of stress, but hey, what would feeling bad for myself do to help me, diba?

A lot of people around me are panicking and ranting lately. Me? I decided to be the cheerleader. And it makes me feel good-- not being in a panicky mode and having the energy (and proper mind set) to try to cheer others, too.

I'm busy as a bee, but I'm happy as if I'm free :)

Light up, my fire.

This morning, I was able to light a match stick for the first time.
And there was fire ;)

I think that's a good way to start the new year.

This year, I'm going to be braver, bolder, and an awful lot better :)
