|Goodbye UP Diliman! Hello Unemployment -- 16 Down/36 to go!||Photo courtesy of me|
And now that I have nothing to count down to, I'm not sure what to do with myself. But this week will definitely stand out in my head (or at least the end of the week) as a week wherein I finally made that transition from limbo to bum-hood. I don't know if I'm quite read for the real world just yet, but I guess there's only one way to find out.
[+] Finally started to watch Bones! dorkfish04 and just about every single person on my flist has convinced me I should be watching this show, so hopefully I'll catch up in time for the season 4 finale.
[-] I went with my mom to the wake of my friend Allan's grandma (aka my mom's friend, Tita Alice's mom). And though I wasn't close to their grandma at all, it still made me sad to see her die just a few days after her 79th birthday. I hope their family is okay.
[+] I went to mass as usual with my mom and there was this healing thing afterwards. I didn't attend it anymore and felt sort of guilty for not going (it's not required at all) because if things were a bit more problematic with school now, I would have so been there. Oh well.
[+] Finished season 1 of Bones and feel so giddy about moving onto the next season. Maybe I should try exercising while watching instead of lying down in bed. That will probably do me more good next time.
[+] Finally finally got my Twilight DVD!!! My cousin's uncle sent it via their cousin and I finally got my hands on it!!! I'm too scared to open it just yet but I want to watch it already! It feels so good to have it in my hands.

[+] I had graduation practice in the afternoon and it was so good to see my friends again! Seeing that all of us are graduating and that we've gotten this far was making me all choked up. I also saw Anna, whom I hadn't seen in ages. We used to be around each other 24/7 for almost two years and now we barely see each other. I'm gonna miss her.
[+] Also hung out with Ana for a bit before I took her home. I'm also going to miss this girl terribly. And then I saw Sophie and we rescheduled our sleep over cause we need one stat. I don't know what I'm going to do when we're all off to whatever these coming months.
[+] And of course, more Bones. Because really, what else do you do when you don't have class and are two days away from graduation? When I went to mass that evening, it felt good to tell our priest (not the one I crush on), that I'm graduating! I had asked him to pray for me because of all the drama. Feels good to have a priest on your side.
[+] After mass, I FINALLY got to get my haircut and a pedicure and my eyebrows threaded -- the works! What did I do when I got home though? That's right, watched Bones.

If You're Happy and You Know It
[+] I was tagged by flautapanteraI didn't ever think this day would come. It does sort of feel like yesterday that I was merely entering the university. And now, four years later, I still feel like a clueless freshman.
[+] Post about something that made you happy today.
[+] Repeat for eight days:
Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 |
Day 5 | Day 6 | Day 7 | Day 8
I don't know what the future holds for me, but despite all the low low lows that college brought upon me, it'll definitely still be four of the BESTEST years of my life. Bring it on, future!

[+] Seeing Anna give the valedictory speech and Hazel's Grad Video almost brought me to tears. I'm gonna miss seeing all my girls (and male friends -- though little). It was nice to see everyone dressed up too. Me and an org mate (from another course) were in the same dress! It was cool though.
Sweltering Heat + Long Program = Not Win

[+] 3000 graduates and we were all just raring to get out of there. The keynote speaker was National Artist Virgilio Almario and he gave a really good address. Our batch was pretty smart too with 18 summa cum laudes, 125 magna cum laudes and like 700+ cum laudes! Not bad!!!
