That Moment

That moment when you get home from school and there's no one there to meet you by the front door.

That moment when you get home and you realize that you're too late.

Tu me manques.

Hello Weekend

So, weekends are supposed to be for relaxation, right? They're supposed to be the breaks that we get in between school days so we can rest. Well, I don't think so.

Weekend Agenda:
  • Study for the English Form (make a reviewer).
    • Reread Oedipus the King.
  • Read and study about Quantum numbers and their principles.
  • Study for a quiz on Greek civilization (make a reviewer).
  • Read chapters 13-15 of Noli Me Tangere.
  • Rewrite my Social, Chemistry, Geometry and Filipino notes.
  • Do my POEM extra credit.
  • Memorize how to introduce myself in French.
  • Watch the ADMU-DLSU game. (not school related, but VERY IMPORTANT)
Sometimes I wonder if I even have time to rest anymore. I barely have time to read any non-school related books aka books that I actually like. But it's not like I'm not used to this. I mean, this has been going on for the past month.

When will I ever have a break?

Déjà vu

My little brother's at a sleepover, while my older brother's out of the house and will be back later tonight, so I'm sort-of the only child right now. Which means I can write in peace.

So anyways, I had a really fun day today. I know I keep on saying it in my posts, but I really love my class. We had so much fun today in every single subject and they cheer me up even in the smallest of ways. We laugh at even the smallest of things. I'm so thankful that I have such an amazing class.

You know that feeling when something happens to you, and it's exactly like something that also happened to you before? Well, I had that feeling. I experienced déjà vu awhile ago. Like someone told me something because of this certain reason. But exactly last year, give or take a few days, someone else told me that exact same thing, because of the same reason. Uhm okay, does that even make sense?

Oh well.

It's been almost a month since junior year started and I am already so exhausted. Form 1 (our prelims/preliminaries) is this week and my schedule is so cramped up because of all the homeworks, projects and the studying that I have to do.

Our Social Studies and Math forms are on Monday, and I think the Social form is worth 80 points, while the Math form is worth 50 points. Huhu I can't believe I'm saying this, but exams please come back. :(

But I have to say, that I'm actually loving all of this. We had our high school acquaintance party yesterday, and right after that I went to one of my classmate's house to do a project, and it was the most fun I've had in a long time. I love my class, my teachers are okay, and my friends are the best.

Despite all the studying that I have to do, I think this is gonna be an awesome year.

Now excuse me while I lock myself up in my room, and go have a date with my World History book.

Wise Words

Can I just say that my teachers are awesome? Okay, well not all of them. I mean, there are some that I don't like but I think most of them are starting to grow on me. This year's going to be great. It already is, and it's only been three weeks of classes.

So a few days ago, during math class, we were talking about deductive reasoning. Deductive reasoning is when you have two statements that are treated as facts or the premises of the argument. Based on the premises, you have to form a particular conclusion or valid argument. For example, if you're given the statements, "All apples are fruits," and "All fruits grow on trees," we can then conclude that all apples grow on trees. That's deductive reasoning. Okay, I hope you got my little math lesson there.

Anyways, we were answering some exercises on that, and our teacher (let's call him Sir J), was asking us to conclude certain statements using deduction. One of them was, "Students of Sir J's POEM class are smart and beautiful. You attend Sir J's POEM class." So, the correct answer for that would be "You are smart and beautiful." Being the teenage girls that we are, we quietly gave the correct answer, some of us not believeing a single word of it. But here are the wise words that our teacher told us after:
"Girls, you are all beautiful. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise." - Sir J

Then yesterday, we were having a talk on nutrition and there was this open forum. Most of the questions asked by my batchmates and by some of the seniors were "self-image" questions. Like "If you were on a diet, what should be lessened meat or rice?" or "What should we do if we want to get whiter?" and so many other questions concerning health, weight, fat and other body image issues.

During the closing remarks, our principal (let's call him Sir F), went to the front of the covered court, and addressed each and every one of us regarding our issues.
"Ladies, you are all as beautiful as you are. Remember that." - Sir F

Three Wishes

While having a snack awhile ago, Mari (my younger brother) suddenly asked me this really random question. "If you had three wishes what would they be?"

To be honest, I don't know. I mean, I could wish for world peace, the end of world hunger, the end of poverty and so on. Then I could also wish for abstract things like happiness, laughter, love and all those other feelings that people long for. I could also wish for more personal things like good health for everyone in my family, or to be able to get into my desired college, or to travel the world, and all those other things that my heart wishes I could achieve. Basically, this list could go on forever.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that sometimes, three wishes isn't enough. In your three wishes, you can wish and ask for three more wishes, but it just doesn't work that way. In life, we're sometimes given three wishes, ten wishes, 1 wish or no wish at all. We have to make our wish count.

So if you were given three wishes, what would they be?
