this week

Before the week ends and another starts, I want to share some of the highlights of the week. I was not able to post anything about them because the week was just too toxic. Organic chemistry was squeezing the life out of me. I feel like I'm 50 years older because of it. So does that make me 68 years old? Anyway, because I'm in the middle of solving some math problems for our group work, I'm gonna have to make this post snappy. You get it? Snappy? Oh darn it. Let the 'pictures' do the talking.

Organic chemistry DID squeeze the life out of me--including my sense of humor. So before it squeezes anything else from me, let's get this over with.

The day I felt so legal

Because I turned 18 last month, (exactly a month before May 10) I was able to take part in the historic automated election! Yeah, baby. Who's legal now, huh? It was fun. I had fun shading the 'bilog na hugis itlog'. But they weren't really egg-shaped. They looked more like ovals to me. :| And eggs are NOT oval. Yes, I'm talking about chicken eggs.

My oh-so-motivational-ultra-mini wall of motivation

Because Organic Chemistry was killing me and my hopes, I had to motivate myself. And since I had a lot of post-it's, I created this oh-so-motivational-ultra-mini wall of motivation. So now I turned my printer into a printer WITH an oh-so-motivational-ultra-mini wall of motivation. What do the post-it's say? Zoom in, people. Zoom in.

Cramming for Organic Chemistry

Nobody said it was going to be easy, but nobody said it was going to be hellishly hard. For the first time in my life, I felt so hopeless when faced with a subject. Sure, I had difficult subjects before, but they're nothing compared to Organic Chem. It's so hard, it puts diamonds to shame.


We finally got our name plates! It just feels so good to have one with my name on it. Oh yeah, this is just the motivation I need.

So there you go. If a picture paints a thousand words, this blog post speaks at least 4,000 words (including the ones I typed). So, bye for now. Anemia is attacking me again. :|

Kailangan talaga nakashades? =))

Magulong workplace=nag-aaral. :D \:D/

I love the name plate! :D At least you won't lose your identity there. :P I actually miss having a name patch. :( I don't feel like wearing ID in college. :|

Grabe kasi yung mata ko nung araw na yun. Super liit na. Kakaiyak.=)))

magulong workplace = magulong isip =))

Yeah, like spongebob. =)) Talaga? Ako suot ko lagi id ko. Hindi ako papapasukin pag wala e. =))

Ako diiin! =)) Kaso minsan, di bagay sa porma. HAHA. Init pa ng makapal na lanyard. :| Baho na nga niya e :| (YUCK ANO BA TONG SINASABI KO =)))))

Sige sige. Goodluck sa tests. O_o Hell week. :))

Congrats, Joyce! For being part of the first automated election in the Philippines. My dad said the 'bilog na hugis itlog' was too small and it was hard to fill it in. :))

Organic Chemistry is creeping the hell out of me. I mean, you and Patrice are complaining about its unfriendliness. I'm so lucky to have no OrgChem ever.

I love the name plate too! Cool. Does this mean our date's coming anytime soon? :)

Joyce said...

@Alyzza: Awww. Thanks. :) Seriously? Maybe your dad's marker was too big for the 'eggs'. =))))

You should be thankful you don't have organic chemistry. It's so hard. It makes me feel so bad about myself. :c

About our date, maybe. :)
