#PROJECTdreX

I have long been waiting and planning everything from scratch because that’s how excited I am for my party. I wanted to go big this time and celebrate with some of the closest to me. Turning a year older again and I am so blessed to be loved by many.

We have found a place to rent in Canyon Woods – Batangas. The 2-story house has 3BRs and 3 toilets. It has an average kitchen space and has a comfy sala, too! It also has a space in the back kitchen where you can grill. Overall, the place was just perfect for #DWKND.

Saturday morning we rushed to the groceries to buy everything needed for #DWKND – food, utensils, charcoal and all that’s necessary.  The liquors were bought during the time S&R had a Mega Sale where I took advantage!

On our way my parents were calling me because of this earthquake that happened in Batangas – where we planned to go. We did not feel like there was until the time when we got inside the house and witnessed how the frames were shaking. After few minutes it stopped! I prayed that no one gets hurt.

Since I am the boss, I put everyone to work – down from slicing to the grilling. I wanted to get everything set by 6 PM. While everyone is busy doing their own thing, we already started drinking beers. It was so much fun seeing them having a good time.

Come 6 PM, everything was set. All of them were there. To my surprise, a special someone surprised me with a cake I did not know I had. I was planning to blow a candle from a bottle of the liquor since I did not bother to buy a cake for myself. Ha ha!

So they sang me a happy birthday song and the rest of the story goes…

All went down crazy that night. We felt like we were a bunch of high school students living YOLO. I guess most of us just wanted to leave all the stress we get from the city and just have  the best time.

And then all else got drunk except for the birthday boy. Morning came and everyone was sober except for me ha ha! I decided to insist on going to the beach because it was too hot at that time. We went to Calatagan in Batangas where it’s an hour ad a half away from where we were.

I took the time of travel as the best chance to catch some sleep. Look! Ha ha!

Then here comes the beach…

After the beach, we decided to go back to MNL and face the reality once again. More pictures posted in my Facebook.

#DWKND was worth the wait and gastos! Thank you all for your warm birthday greetings, did not expect I would get as much. To all those who helped me execute the plans for my party, a big thanks!

Can’t wait for next year! -D

How Cool is College

(For those who are asking, those girls in the picture are 2 of my wildest friends LOL)

I came to visit our Alma Mater yesterday together with two of my friends. We went there not for any other purpose but to visit the place where we used to ‘chill’, the PARKING LOT. No other place like it. It was raining yesterday and we got stuck inside the car. We had no other choice but to talk about all the things that we used to do back in college. That day brought us back all the memories that marked our college lives.

I’m writing this blog to give others an idea of how some of us are blessed to have learned a lot during our days in college. We all learn from different ways. Some of us learn by the books while others learn from the streets. I don’t intend to discuss how we memorized all the formulas written in a book because we all had enough of it. However, learning in some forms can be experienced through failures.

Some of us thinks failure is just a slice from our pie. Actually, it is! I do not understand why some people take it the other way. Either they take suicide or they get depressed (almost impossible to move forward). We all face certain circumstances in life, and all that comes with a good reason behind it.

I, myself, have gone through unexpected failures when I was still in college. Having several Rs (repeat) is definitely not a joke. There was a time that I got demotivated and I wanted to quit and start working but then I thought every thing that happened should not stop me from graduating. All that helped me realize how life teaches me (us) a lesson. It comes in the most unexpected way.

During our days as college students, we all came to that point when we wished we could just quit school and how we all envied our friends who are working that time (not to mention how much they are earning compared to how much allowances we get from our parents). We would always find their lives more interesting just because they are exempted from midterm and final exams, from tons of homework, or from school as a whole. What we didn’t realize is that we are wrong.

I know that a lot will agree to me when I say it is so much better to go to school than work. Yes, people who work get paid twice in a month but others have no idea how much obligations are put into it. Also, you cannot ditch work unlike with some of your classes (LOL). Be it in a day or night, working seems to take over the lives that we all have gotten used to.

If given a chance to go back to college, I’ll grab that! I miss how fun it was. It was one heck of a ride and I enjoyed every moment of it. College is the only time and place where I reflected about too many things in  life. It has taught me how to carry myself in situations like no one can help. It gave me the best memories that no books can ever make me experienced and lastly, I met some of the coolest bunch!
