I Went to UP last night. The UP Broadguild (my brother’s org when he was still in UP – I’m working on their site too) had their “Destino” again. It’s an event where they have several bands playing and a movie showing (they played “A Walk To Remember”) in the sunken garden afterwards.

I was with JR and my bestest and we took a couple of pics…

Nine Months
Posted on: 28th of January 2004 | Under: Life & Love

9 months. That’s how long I have left ’til my final exhibit.

9 months and I’ll be done with drafting plates for my classes. 9 months and I’ll finally be free from going to school early in the morning. 9 months and I will graduate and will receive my certificate in Interior Design. Ahh, in 9 months, I’ll be free.

But yes, that also means that I still have 9 months more of sleepless nights. 9 months more of going to school early. 9 months more of endless drafting of plates. 9 months more of gruelling work.

9 months.

I have yet to grasp the reality that I’m actually gonna be done in 9 months. I’ve already prepared myself for all the tiresome work. Things will definitely be a lot harder now that our final exhibit is approaching. Work has already been divided among the different committees and this afternoon we had a meeting for the Annual Committee (one of the two committees that I’m in– the other would be the Construction Committee) for the yearbook.

The work looked harder than I thought it would be, but I’m sure we’ll cope. I, along with another batchmate, have been assigned “Layout and Graphic Designer/Editor.” I’m sure it’ll be a tough job but I’m pretty much ecstatic to get started on it.

Ahh, I can’t wait for that 9 months to pass. I’l finally be free after that. Well, I do have my Minor Subjects to take in Benilde for a year. Then comes the Board Exams. Then it’ll be actual work as an Interior Designer (when I pass the Board, that is).

Err, I guess it doesn’t really end in 9 months. 8-} haha!

Anyway, we were bored in class earlier, so we went and fiddled with my camera…

Myca and I.

Tonet drafting our floor plan.

My teddy wanted to draft too. XP hehe

Isn’t he just adorable? ^^;; LOL!

I was obviously bored! 8-}

Marz, Myca, me and Tonet downstairs.

Hehe. Expect to see more pictures of my school friends and I in here. We all just love pictures! ^_,~:;

I Love My Family
Posted on: 27th of January 2004 | Under: Life & Love

I love my family and when I say that, I don’t just mean my immediate family. I love my family as a whole. My aunts, uncles and cousins too. The Viduya clan (maternal side) is pretty big. My mom has 6 brothers and 5 sisters (they’re 12 all in all) and there are already 34 of us grandchildren and one great grandchild. Yes, the family is that big.

It’s just so much fun that way, really. I love getting together with everyone. It’s literally one big party when we’re together. The house is packed with loud people talking, singing, laughing, eating and playing games everytime. It gets exhausting having everyone over, but it’s still fun.

So yeh, even if my little cousins turn my room upside down when they’re over, I still don’t mind too much. I’m happier with just the thought of getting to spend some time with them.

Anyway, one of my aunts and uncles flew back from San Francisco on Sunday, so it was a great excuse for everyone to get together here at home. We’re all fond of taking and posing for pictures, and we did quite a lot of that on Sunday. ^_,~;;

Here are some of them…

It would be great to have one big reunion. We’ve never had a get together with everyone present. It’s hard getting everyone to fly back here all at the same time. I guess that’s what happens when you have a huge family. XP hehe.

Writer’s Block
Posted on: 25th of January 2004 | Under: Geek Talk

I was supposed to blog the other day. I sat in front of my computer for a couple of hours, trying to squeeze my brains out to write about something interesting. After several cups of coffee, I still found myself staring at a blank blog window. Not a word. Not even a single dot or letter.

It’s funny how I’ve gradually become speechless when it comes to blogging nowadays. I remember how enthusiastic I used to be in my blogs. I wouldn’t let a day pass without posting. There were even days that I had more than one post in a day. I was pretty much caught up with the blogging frenzy, really.

Those were the days. Days when I enjoyed jotting down the details about my daily escapades. How I woke up, went to school, ate lunch, had dinner and went to bed. It was routinary. Almost predictable, really. It was fun then, but you get tired of blabbing about the same things. I guess that’s not too surprising considering that it’s been over 3 years since I started blogging.

So yeh, I guess I have become picky when it comes to the things that I blog about nowadays.

If I don’t post in a while, that just means one thing… I have nothing exciting to talk about. =P hehe…
