Trapped in between writing my final paper with an extensive RRL for two subjects and completing my overdue assignment for another got me like… 🙄
Ano na, teh? Hahaha. Tbh, I don’t feel like Term 1 is over yet, but here I am—already braving into a new one. It’s like breaking up with a lover without a proper closure, ganorn!
This sounds so embarrassing, but did you know I almost forgot that it’s our first synchronous class for the new term (Term 2)?
I got off from work at exactly 5, bearing in mind that I’d spend an hour preparing for our class with the University Vice-President. Mygaaaaad yes! Vice-President lang naman ng PNU!
So ayooon… Upon arriving home, I got preoccupied with a package my mum received for an online purchase. It was already half past five when I remembered about logging into our LMS. Such a shame!
And so, two minutes before 6 pm, I was literally rushing into the Zoom call, feeling all nervous, like, my palms are getting entirely sweaty that I can no longer move my ergonomic mouse properly.
I was wondering how my face would have looked like had the class been on an F2F basis. I could just imagine. 😂
Oh, good Lord. Thank You for those last two minutes. ✌️🙏✨
P.S. And yes, that mouse cursor is a sword—just to remind me that this laptop I’m using right now is my prize from the recently held Gawad Kampilan 2020, where I was awarded as Most Outstanding Module Evaluator for Grades 7-12.
Fun fact: In the Philippines, “kampilan” is a type of single-edged sword, traditionally used by various ethnic groups in the Philippine archipelago. It has a distinct profile, with the tapered blade being much broader and thinner at the point than at its base, sometimes with a protruding spikelet along the flat side of the tip (Wikipedia).

Take care out there! Times keep getting weirder.
first day of class tomorrow & I can’t fall asleep …
also can’t stop thinking about this guy who “doesn’t want a relationship right now”.
feels like I’m in high school instead of grad school 🙃.
Yesterday was my birthday! I made the realization that I am now closer in age to 25 than I am to 20…whaaaat!
I recently graduated and now have my Bachelor’s of Art in Women’s and Gender Studies and am currently working on applying to grad school. If I get accepted, I will be moving 1,300 miles away from my home state–I’m so excited. I am from the Midwest and live in a state that does not reflect my beliefs or morals, so it’s really challenging to not feel stuck in my life at the moment. I don’t want to get my hopes up on being accepted into grad school, because the program I am applying to is really competitive and I am afraid of failure!
I’ll make sure to keep you all updated on me applying and the school’s decision. **fingers crossed**
A helluva week to work in cyber security. We’ll see the fallout from this week’s debauchery for years to come.
Higher ed pals: if your institution hasn’t condemned the insurrection yet either, I’m sorry. Truly.
Pieces of music conference flair. Appropriately, the satire triangle is much larger.
Regarding yesterday’s storming of the Capitol by domestic terrorists: this IS America, but it shouldn’t be anymore.
Peace and love to all who wish for greater harmony and respect among all our people, regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, religion, or party affiliation.
I’m glad there were not more lives lost yesterday, but sad that things would almost certainly have ended differently if the insurgents had primarily been from BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ communities.
