The university is so photogenic and poetic; ahh, I’m in love!!
Spending most of the time chilling out with my blocmates. Is it because my subjects aren’t that demanding, or is it because I’m not a good student? Hmmm
Loving the food in the university; I already ate at 6 out of 10 places featured in “10 Affordable Places Where UPLB Students Usually Eat” + at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI)’s cafeteria. They have a wide variety of restaurant-like dishes for a really affordable price. We even walked for 30 minutes just to get there!
Needing a lot of motivation and discipline! I already spent a lot of money, ditched a class, slept through lessons, and broke a few rules, oops. 
Trying out for the university paper, UPLB Perspective. I’m not that active in their meetings though, since I always have to be somewhere else when they happen *sigh*
Tried jogging with my friends late at night as well; exercise is not meant for me at all.
Watched the indie film, “Anita’s Last Chacha” and ahh, it’s beautiful! It tackles on sensitive issues, like abortion, sexual identity, abuse, and rape. 
Math17 is getting harder everytime I’m at my recitation class; hello first failed exercise!!
What is sleep, really. Even though I stay up late for my schoolworks, I still cram everything in the morning. Thankful for my 11:30 classes!
Trying to avoid drinking when tired. Or even drinking, in general. No, it’s never a good decision.
Hello, you. Thank you for making our first month of school happy and survivable.

so they asked me about
you
and what i saw in you -
they wanted to understand
who you are and
what you meant to me
and as i told them about you
and us;
i left some parts unspoken
(those are our memories)
and some things hidden
(even you don’t know)
but if you were to ask me,
i wish i could tell them
how i wanted us to be
more than friends
escafeism

and i’m sorry
i’m always sorry

for failing to smile
while you jump up and down;

for being the dark cloud
while you’re shining so bright;

for sharing the feelings of the rain
when it comes pouring down;

for never being enough for you
when you’re more than i could wish for
