Blockbuster!

I haven't been to the cinema for quite a while and I don't need to, coz the past weeks were my own version of  blockbuster. As the end of the 2nd term was approaching, we had loads of projects and assignments, which consumed our supposed to be study time for the finals and we were all like in a topsy-turvy state. Anyhow, we survived that week, as well as the final exam, though I’m not confident with the result.

Then we had a 4-day study tour which was more exhausting than being fun. There was a lot of drama and clash of personalities.




Anyway, we visited several PAGASA stations and went up higher in the atmosphere. We literally looked at both sides of the clouds. All I could say is that the people assigned in those stations definitely deserve hazard pay. The Tanay radar station is like a military hideout, 1500 ft above sea level, a really secluded place. They say that the sight of snakes and monkeys around is normal. The view from Baguio radar station is also awesome, located at 2000 meters above sea level. The scary part there is the road, coz one wrong move, and it’s like you'll fall off the cliff.



And now, I'm having some good rest and relaxation at home while the very strong wind continues to blow which is caused by the southwest monsoon and intensified by the 6th cyclone of the year, GENER (int'l name: SAOLA).

Preggy friends


My friends called me the other night and I became so emotional. Chanty is now on vacation from her teaching job in Thailand and she's with my 2 preggy friends, Ivy and Flora. I was so happy when Ivy told me that she's 2 months pregnant. I know they've been wanting to have a baby. I was filled with so much emotion especially when they told me about their plans for the baby shower on October and November. I miss them so much and I wish I could be with them for these celebrations.

Let's get it on, July!

When July kicked in, things started to become exciting. A lot of things happened lately which brought some good kind of stress.
Tonight will be my first on the job training at PAGASA. I like the fact that whatever I will be doing tonight, I'm already serving or helping my countrymen. I'm keeping my hopes high that all these processes that I need to go through before I get the job/item will go smoothly. I still have my fear though that I might be taken out from the list for this second semester. My grades are really low this time. But despite all these, I wanna keep believing that this is where God wants me to be.

And last weekend was pretty exciting too :). I'm back!!!!
