Jackpot Week! :)

Well hello, August. Sorry I wasn't able to welcome you properly. You know how things are.. acads take most of my time these days. And besides, it was only recently that Smart Bro actually worked for me. But I'm glad things are a-okay so far. In fact.. this week has been one of the best so far! I love it, really. Jackpot week talaga. So I'd like to thank you for every single day of this week..

  • Jai Reyes. I almost forgot about my new "ritual" of listening to U-Rock every Monday at NU 107. Good thing I remembered to pop my earphones before I went to sleep. And would you believe my luck, JAI REYES WAS ON THE SHOW! And you know me and Inna. We're the biggest UAAP, Ateneo, UP fans ever! So we started texting like crazy under the pseudonyms Kbear and Paola, and then eventually using Karla and Inna.

    (not in verbatim)

    Lia Cruz: "Hey Jai, we love you super kahit taga-UP kami," that's coming from KBear and Paola.
    Jai Reyes: Thank you, KBear and Paola.
    Karla and Inna: WAAAHHHHH!!

    *after a few minutes*
    Karla calls the number.
    The call is rejected.
    Karla texts and asks why they can't call.
    Inna texts a message.

    Lia Cruz: Okay so a while ago, our phone started ringing, and some were asking if they could call.. I'm sorry we can't answer the phone call.. but you can text your messages to us and we'll read them out for Jai to hear..

    *Lia reads some message*

    Lia Cruz: "Hi Jai, good luck sa game niyo.. we're your biggest fans!" Oh, it's from KBear and Paola again.
    Karla and Inna: WAAAHHHH!!

    *after some more minutes*
    Karla texts again.

    (exact words na to!)

    Lia Cruz: "Hi Jai! We're probably your biggest non-Ateneo fans ever! Anyway, if it's not too much to ask can you please wish us luck on our midterms tomorrow? We love you!" That's coming from Karla and Inna.
    Jai Reyes: Hi Karla, Hi Inna. Good luck sa midterms niyo bukas, whatever subject that is. Good luck!

    Karla and Inna: @_@ WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!! ♥

  • Kas1 Long Exam. I had my first long exam for my favorite subject today. I was so nervous because hours before, I was trying to squeeze in every bit of information I can into my brain, and I just couldn't take them in anymore! I wanted to be sure I got everything covered, but my brain just won't cooperate. So I just wanted to chill and relax. I went downstairs to buy myself a bluebook together with Reg, and to our surprise, when we cam back who did we see as we ran up the staircase? Mark Lopez and Czarlo dela Victoria of the UP Fighting Maroons!! We practically screamed in front of their faces!! Hahaha :) That certainly perked us up for the test! :) Anyway, I'm not totally confident about the test but I guess it's safe to say that I was able to answer all the questions. It really is a good thing na essay siya, and hopefully I was able to get my point across.
  • A conversation with a friend. I was able to get a hold of one good friend of mine, and we were finally able to talk. Finally.

  • Katips day. I ate lunch at KFC with Inna, Andy, Mark, and Jan. Wow, achievement toh because finally hindi na kami Rodic's at tapsilog! Whooo! :)
  • Math1 Results Day. Yes, judgment day after our long exam. Our professor walked in with our bluebooks in hand and I swear to God we all groaned in unison. She gave out our bluebooks randomly, and to my utter luck, I was one of the last ones called. Imagine the nervousness I was feeling while everyone else around me already got theirs and I was still waiting! Finally, it was handed out to me, and I was able to heave a huge sigh of relief. 41/50! Yehey! :)
  • Martin Reyes and Migs De Asis. As usual, after Math1, Drea, Mark, and I meet up with Inna in our Secret Meeting Place 2 or SMP2 (loser ng tawag, I know haha), the passageway we found cozy enough to stay in while we wait for our next class. And yes, our main purpose is to.. SEE THE BASKETBALL PLAYERS, because this is where they pass. Haha. So as usual, dumaan na naman si Martin at Migs. Ang adik! (Kawawa si Mark, puro babaeng adik sa basketball player ang laging kasama! :P)
  • Pusoy Dos. Drea has been bitten by the card bug, so she decided to bring a deck with her. And guess what? After much persuasion by the three girls, Mark taught us how to play Pusoy Dos! Whooo! I must admit that I don't know card games, except for 123 Pass, Bluff, Ungguy-ungguyan and other lame ass games. But today, I finally finally finally learned. And you know what? I DON'T SUCK. Out of the 6 rounds we played, I won 2 times! And in the rounds I didn't get, I finished 2nd! Whooo. Take that. I. Am. Not. A. Loozaaah. :) I love Pusoy Dos already :)

  • ACLE day. Our Physics professor told us last Tuesday that we won't be having classes today. And since, ACLE in the afternoon.. I had no classes today! Whoopeeee!! :) For the information of the non-UP readers, the Alternative Classroom Learning Experience, popularly known as ACLE, is an event hosted by the University Student Council every semester. Students are invited (or sometimes required) to attend lectures prepared by various organizations inside the campus. The topics of each lecture should be related to the overall theme of the ACLE. For this semester, the theme is Juan vs. 100, in commemoration of the University’s 100th year. (Thanks!) So since we were required, guess what Inna and I attended?

    "Timeout! Ang Pinoy at Basketball" featuring the UP Fighting Maroons!!

    It was hosted by the UP BroadGuild. Grabe. I think we were the only two non-CMC people there! But that's okay. The moment the players walked in.. ay nako. Major kilig alert!! Too bad Migs De Asis and Mike Gamboa weren't there :( But that's okay because Martin Reyes was!! ♥ I swear I can't stop looking at him the whole time. Haha. Ang cute cute cute niya kasi! And his facial expressions -- ay grabe, priceless! He's so kengkoy and makulit. I fell in love with him even more! Grabe. Ang puso ko, laglag na laglag na! HAHAHA :) But of course, we didn't just ogle over him. We also listened to the other speakers. The basketball trivia were really cool. It's funny because when you come to think about it, basketball is THE sport of the Filipinos. No other sport can compare to the love and the respect we have for it. The adrenaline rush, the drama, the thrill -- everything just adds up to its alluring factor. SO TRUE ESPECIALLY FOR INNA AND ME :) Trish Roque was there too. Paulinian din pala siya. Whooo! Lalo ko tuloy gusto maging courtside reporter :) That's my Ultimate Dream #2! (Second to being an editor-in-chief in a magazine :P)

    Of course, we didn't miss an opportunity for a photograph!

  • I wished them luck pa nga, sabi ko ingat sila sa UE baka may ma-injure din sa kanila. Then Martin Reyes SMILED AT ME! ♥ Takte yan, tinunaw puso ko! :)

    (BTW, Martin is the guy in white behind Inna. The one wearing retainers. The really cute one, yung maputi :P)

Tomorrow.. and the days ahead.

I don't have Math1 and PE tomorrow, so that means I only have one class: Eng11 from 8:30-10. That means at 10 am I'm freeeeee! :) Yipee! I'm going home to Paranaque tomorrow! MRT adventure na naman to for me. I love commuting on my own. Makes me feel so.. grown-up. Anyway, tomorrow is also Kristine's birthday. Then on Saturday is Tophe's birthday celeb (I'm still not sure if I will attend). On Tuesday is the Maroon 4's U-Hop day. Our stop: University of Sto. Tomas! Whooo! :) I can't wait. I'm so excited and perky. Haha.

Another reason why I'm so happy is because.. Inna and I were able to connect to our dorm's Wi-Fi by some sort of miracle. Hahaha. Illegal connection!? I don't know how this happened, but it did. So DSL surfing for us! Whoo! No more Smart Bro! -- at least for tonight. Haha.

Thank you dear August. This week has definitely been a great one for me :)
