Day 5: What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

Happiness
noun
- a state of well-being and contentment

When I was a kid, my definition of happiness was buying a huge box of crayons, not clumsily breaking a crayon, getting a scoop of mocha ice cream, blowing up a bubble gum or sometimes a plastic balloon. Things were much much MUUUUCH simpler back when I was a kid. I think that goes out for everybody, right? As we grow older, our concept of happiness become deeper. At first when I was thinking of things that are making me happy right now, I can't really think of anything. I'm not depressed, okay. Its just that I find it hard to think of something that's making me truly happy as of the present. I think any individual is experiencing something like this. Happiness doesn't come on a silver platter. It takes a lot of ups and downs before you can pinpoint the things that give you genuine happiness. But after a few internal reflections or whatever you call those, I've come up with exactly 5 THINGS that's making me happy as of the moment.

1. MY GRAAAADES
- YES, MY GRADES! Especially my grades in CHEMISTRY!!!! I couldn't believe that I got a 96 for my midterm grade!!! :o I never got a grade that high in high school!!!

2. STARMAKER
-YES, the app. starmaker!!! :)) I don't know why but I just enjoy that app so much even if I have a not-so-awesome singing voice. :))) At least I still manage to get 3 stars in some songs.

3. MY DOG, ZOE
- EVEN IF SHE'S ONE ANNOYING POOCH, she never fails to distress me whenever I get home from school. I just love that furball so sooo much!!!

4. SURPRISES
- I LOVE PLANNING SURPRISES!!!! period. :))) They just make me all hyped up and stuff.

5. MY COLLEGE BLOCK
- Even if I miss my high school classmates so soooo muuuch, my college block never fails to counter that emptiness I'm feeling whenever I think about my high school classmates.

Well, those are the things that are currently making me happy as of the moment. These may not be that big, but these surely know how to make up my day. :)

So, what was I really up to for the past couple of weeks

Hey loves!
I know I've been absent for the past couple of weeks and I'm really sorry about that. There's been a lot of school stuff lately and I rarely get to keep up with my social life. :( Anyway, so here are just some of the photos I took in the past 2 weeks. It's not that much though, but that really sums up everything. Taking photos of me studying or taking a photo of my notes isn't really that interesting, TRUST ME!
1. With Bianca, Andrea, Kim and Candice at Cravings/ 2. With Bianca and our "baby"/ 3. With KAPISANAN (minus Sam and Mari) at Omakase/ 4. With Aina/ 5. Just a collage of Aina's birthday/ 6. First time to eat isaw (chicken intestines) with Elisha and Bea/ 7. Goofing around with Joanna, Bea and Julian/ 8. Grilled Salmon/ 9. With Melizza, Bea, Aves and Kat/ 10. Cool wall painting/ 11. With UE's import from Brit, Woodward/ 12. Choc overload.

Day 4: List 5 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.

my not-so-obvious transformation from 16-18 years old.

If there are 5 things that I'd tell my 16 year-old self, most probably I'll tell her:

1. ALWAYS BE YOURSELF: There may be times that you think you're lesser than most people or that you're not as good as your friends or you're not what your parents want you to be, but always remember that God made each and everyone of us different and gifted each of us a special thing that makes us glimmer and sparkle from everybody. Trust on your capabilities and hone your abilities. In 2 years time, you'd get to appreciate these things in you. The things that you thought weren't there are actually there hidden at the deepest part of your soul. Just be yourself and you'd get to shine as brightly as you'll be 2 years from now.

2. KEEP AN OPEN MIND: Don't be scared to get out of your bubble every now and then. Learn to socialize, be exposed to the different orgs and comms in your school, just be out there and be open to possibilities. Screw those plans that you have on your head! I promise you, those precious plans you have right now would just go to waste when you reach 18! Be open to anything! Just now your limitations, of course! 

3. SMILE MORE OFTEN: I know that you're starting to develop that inner "fierceness" you have in you. Don't worry, those are one of the things that people like, if not love, about you. But it does give people you don't know a not-so-nice first impression on you. You can be fierce in your amateur photoshoots, or to your close friends but not to people you haven't met. SMILE! Really, it will help you a lot in the future! ;) Plus, it will make you look younger!

4. START FINDING OUT WHAT YOU WANT FOR COLLEGE: At this time, you're starting to consider taking up Dentistry. Don't worry, you'll get there! But there'll be an uneasy feeling while you're taking up this course. When you go to college, there's no going back! Think about this thoroughly before you  senior year starts. Here's a tip, you might want to think about taking up Psychology. ;)

5. STUDY HARD, I MEAN IT: Like what I mentioned in no. 2, you have this plans that you really want to fulfill. But your study habits now won't really help you achieve plans. Actually, your study habits were the reason why you failed in achieving your plans. So, study hard! AIM HIGH ALL THE TIME. If all else fails, just keep an open mind. :)

16 year-old me, you're doing great as of now. Just follow those 5 things and I promise you that you'd succeed! Can't wait for you to turn 18!!! ;)
