FINAL SCHOOL YEAR

Posted by Hannah at 4:44 PM 0 comments Links to this post
       I just realized that my original blog looks awful while my other blog looks awesome. I was trying to change my blog's design but it seems like I am too busy to do it. I am busy with playing computer games, downloading stuffs, etc. and going out with my friends and loved ones. I don;t know why I am sharing this with you guys. I think it's just that I think no one reads my blog but hey! I nearly got a thousand views already, who are you people?

       Anyway, this is gonna be my final year in college if I am able to pass all my subjects. Let's say that I am taking for granted my subjects (because they don't seem so challenging to me, let's see!) and my confidence is overwhelming that I am starting to think that I will ace all my subjects this school year, WOW! But really, we're still not done with our research paper (it sucks).

       But since this is going to be my last year in college, I am going to give my best. I will also have my final internship this semester as a student teacher in college. I was really trembling during my first day last May, I think, and I thought I was going to collapse and my students were almost the same age as me but some of them were incoming sophomores. And last but not the least, GOING BACK TO MY "LAST YEAR IN COLLEGE TOPIC", I wanted to enjoy every second of it with my college BFF Trisha. Wish us luck!:)

Well, It's been five freaking months since my last post. I've been juggling my studies, personal life, and hobbies as of the moment. Also, my lappy got broken way back January I think but I had fixed it as soon as possible BUT I got so involved in lots of stuff that distracted me from keeping up with my blog. And so here I am, writing again, even though nobody reads my freaking blog. LOL

Anyway, I am currently planning to re-arrange my blog and do some editting and stuff because I kind of mix my posts and I want to categorize them so that it will be easier for people who are interested in reading my blog to browse my posts. It's currently our finals week and I haven't finished our research paper yet entitled "The Sociological Conflicts Depicted In Step Up Movies" (I know right). So many things to do and so little time left. Good luck to me. Will be writing soon. xx

City Museum of Cagayan de Oro City

Posted by Hannah at 5:38 PM 0 comments Links to this post

Me and my boyfriend had a changed of mind today. Actually, I was the one who suggested that we visit the oldest building in Cagayan de Oro City because it was one of our goals since we couldn't find the right time to visit the building. Anyway, it's free and you don't have to buy tickets or something. All you have to do is write your name and address on the logbook that is provided by the staff of the museum.

We didn't bother to take pictures inside the museum but we did take few pictures outside the biulding. There are many pictures inside the museum entailing the battle that happened in the city during the Spanish and American colonial era. There are also some displayed jars and jarlets, bottles, bowls, etc. that mostly came from China and Thai which was created around 1300s - 1600s if I am not mistaken. There are pictures of the city too, beautifully taken with a very beautiful scene. Now the city's full of buildings and few parks with few people and many cars unlike the mid 1900s. Also, we've discovered that there's a great flood that happened around 1916 which killed thousands of people. It was then followed by cholera that spread like wildfire which killed more people than that of the great flood. Little do we know, lumads predicted that there will be another great flood that would occur after 50 years. 95 years later, typhoon Sendong came and killed a lot of people.



When we went outside, few children of ages 8 - 12 (I think) saw us and went inside too and I think it's their first time too.

Well, a lot has been going on with my life lately. Unfortunately, I haven't shared those stuff here because I'm kinda busy until now but here I am, trying to write. Okay! Shall we start?


The Student Body Election, March 2015

The former president of our college's student body organization asked me to run for the position of secretary and I was really surprised because I wasn't expecting her to talk to me because 1. We're not really friends, we're just acquainted with each other. 2. I wasn't even popular in our college. And 3. I was expecting her to ask some random popular student. Not me. Anyway, I gave it a try. It's my first time to run for the student body in college though I've been the president of our student body in high school. Then I met some familiar faces when our party had already been formed officially. I know our president because he used to be my classmate in one of my subjects. I wasn't familiar with our vice president because he's new to me and I haven't seen her ever since. These two guys came from a very influential family whose relatives are famous politicians. Alright. They really know how to win an election. Yes. Then me, as their secretary: the weird, quiet, shy type, nerd, long-haired, and tall girl who has a boyfriend by her side all the time. Heh. I don't know what else to say but I'm also an honor student ever since I enrolled in my course, Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. Then we have our treasurer, she used to be my classmate in some of my subjects. Then our auditor, our innocent young man and the only person who calls me "ate Far". Then our public relations officer, a male and a female. I know the girl because she used to be my classmate too but I was not familiar with the boy. Then our academic committee, a very famous young lady who frequently joins and wins some pageants (I used to join one too but got only the second runner up place). Then our non-academic committee, she's not also very familiar to me. Then our two sports committee, one man and one gay. I am not familiar with the guy but I sometimes get to talk with the other.

After all our effort, we had won the election, all of us. Wow. Everything I said during the election came from my heart, I really want to serve the students. We celebrated and did our team building at our president's hometown (by the way, hos father's the mayor of their hometown, rich kid alert). We were spoiled and pampered there and got to tour their town's pride. We slept next to each other and had so much fun, well, not for some people. When we got back to work, last April, I have started to feel weird. It's like I had so much realization. At first, I thought I was just being so sensitive because some of the officers talk carelessly that they weren't aware they had hurt somebody's feelings. And some of you guys know me, I wouldn't dare to speak up and tell that person to shut the ef up. Then after that, I tried to forget it because that was a first time, but it happened again and again. I felt so suffocated whenever we had our meeting. And as a secretary, my only role was to record the minutes of our meetings, keep the documents, inform everybody to attend the meeting or else you will be fined 50 or a hundred pesos, etc. I didn't run for my position to serve as a personal assistant to everybody. Like they're asking me for pens (and take note: ALL MY PENS ARE ONE OF A KIND AND EXPENSIVE BECAUSE I LOVE TO WRITE. PERIOD.), they ask me for a sheet of paper, and worst is they ask me to run an errand for them. WOOOOOOW! It's like I have majors to catch up, I have a boyfriend who started to get mad at me because I prioritize my job as a secretary over him, and I have friends that I haven't talked to for a long time and every time we see each other at school, they're like "you're hair's a bit messy", "you look like you haven't had enough sleep last night", "you look so thin, are you sick?" Helloooooo! May I remind you that I am not a slave of everyone? And when the boss is pressured, I am also pressured. Then as I observe my fellow officers, I really saw that everyone don't like our boss. Okay. I'm not gonna tell you that part. Months have passed and This situation went on and on until one day, I finally decided to resign. HALLELUJAH!

It wasn't easy you know, the way I took to quit my job. I just suddenly started to disappear from our meetings, not informing everyone that I couldn't attend the meeting. Then I stopped texting them. Then soon, I stopped reading their text messages (I got them blocked on my phone actually) and group messages on Facebook. Our student body moderator talked to me about it and asked me to attend the oath taking ceremony last July. I was in a dilemma but still he got me convinced to attend, so I did. After that, I haven't talked to anyone of them about my reasons for leaving. Last September 7, I had finally submitted my resignation letter. Yahooooo!

My Upcoming Birthday, September 2015

So..I was kinda sad these past few days because my parents haven't texted me. I think they thought it's okay with me which is really not okay so I decided to not celebrate my birthday. I told my boyfriend about it and he asked why and I told him I am getting old that's why I wouldn't celebrate my birthday anymore but he bought it. But then I wanted to buy balloons and buy a cake for my birthday, etc. sp maybe I will celebrate my birthday. Going back to my parents', well, I think I'm kinda jealous because they're texting my sister and not even bothering to ask about me while here I am, wasting away, waiting for their calls and texts. My real problem was that I have spent my allowance on some fees that I payed at school and I told my mother about it but she hasn't replied for weeks already. Thank God He heard my worries, few days later my brother called me and ran some errand for him then he gave me money. He just saved my life. Then my mother texted that my father will call me to send my tuition and allowance with an "I love you" at the end of her text. And I was like "thank God". So, my father texted me and everything's settled down. I just wanted them to text or call me to ask if I'm okay or stuffs like "how's school?" But nah, they think I just talk to them when I need money, which isn't true. I miss having them around at house. Until now, they don't have an idea thatbI have a boyfriend that I've been dating for two years already, which is really sad because I really like to introduce him to them. Anyway, that's it for now. Till next time. I hope it wouldn't take me months to write again. Xoxo.

More Than A Year Ago..

Posted by Hannah at 9:13 PM 2 comments Links to this post

More than a  year ago, I was brokenhearted and I applied for a job as a customer service representative and I was in. After that, something happened in work so I had to go to another city (another region) to continue my career. I was happy because it helped me move on from my love life. For the first time in forever, I was finally free. I was living independently. I can go out at any time of the day though I didn’t bother having a nightlife (it’s kinda unhealthy). Everything went well until the man (the reason why I left) tried to ask another chance, so I gave him a chance. Guess everyone deserves a second chance, right? After several months of being away from my friends and family, I went home to continue my studies. Just last semester, I shifted into Bachelor of Arts in Literature in Performing Arts – Major in English Literature, AB English for short. I was happy to finally choose my desired course. At the end of the semester, I didn’t expect to receive higher grades. I was thankful. But despite all of these, many terrible things happened.

You never knew who were the people who stabbed you at the back. It may be your old friend, your best friend, your sister, your brother, your relative, or the person you trusted the most. I really learned a lot of things from those people who tried to bring me down. First, never trust the person who you think IS a good person. Some people may say all the right things when the truth is they really never knew what it takes to be a good person. I should’ve stayed loyal to the person that I truly knew, the person who stood up with me like a mother. Second, the higher you fly, the harder you fall. I guess this didn’t apply to me because after my high school graduation, I never boasted about my awards and honors and etc. to any person. In fact, I maintained a low profile throughout my college life. I guess I didn’t fall that hard but anyway, I did fall. I could say that because I didn’t graduate at the right time which I enjoyed :) I guess other people would commit suicide just because they didn’t graduate on time but for me, honestly, I think I have a lot of things to learn and if  I haven’t fell down, I wouldn’t have met my man, my friends for life, and other great instructors. I never regret any of the bad things that happened to me because it taught me a lot of things that I could share to my future children.
