Rainbow cupcake success! Thanks to Master Ainee!
I’ve no right words for dear October that I delayed my supposedly climactic post. I feel like if i did, these words won’t be enough. So I waited and waited for the right time, for the right state of mind. I believe I am now.
I’m currently at home, in General Santos City, a thousand kilometers from UP Manila, on a school night (supposedly). Waking up here everyday, knowing it’s mid-November still feels surreal. Everything does feel surreal. But I’m starting to get used to the fact that i’m done with Dentistry school and i have bigger things ahead of me.
October came quickly and yet it feels like the longest month i’ve had. A lot of things happened, tables got turned, requirements slowly got ticked off from the list, problems got solved and new ones popped out. Emotional outbursts were far too common a sight. Patience was getting tested as it ran out on most of us. Bonds were strengthened and broken. Events unfolded as results of years of hardwork or the opposite. It was one hell of a ride. I couldn’t be thankful enough that we made it out alive, souls intact.
As i look back, I can say i’ve been very lucky in a lot of things. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Aaron, my friends, my schoolmates, my professors, my family and of course, our Lord. I can still remember the first time I entered UP, friendless and anxious. I’ve never imagined how it feels to be where I am now. Hell I didn’t know a lot of things. I never imagined how UPCD’s going to change me or taught me life in general. I know I’ve not proven myself with the board exams but as early as now, I can say I made the best decision of coming to UP. Thank you for the bittersweet memories. Thank you for introducing me to the love of my life. Thank you for giving me friends for keeps. Thank you for teaching me patience, humility, compassion and a whole lot of things. Thank you for making me the person I am right now. I will make you proud. Soon. :)
One last novel.
Squeaky swings, nostalgia and solace.
Finally. Finally. Finally.
Vanilla says hi to Red Velvet.
Venti drinks for our last study sesh! Claiming it!
This week is all about all-nighters, reading and re-reading, battling numerous attacks of laziness, occasional ranting, losing the will to turn another page, failed attempts of not thinking that the break is so near yet so far, lots of caffeine and flocking to coffee shops for long hours, sucking out energy and sending away potential customers lol. One last push! Finals week! …But i’m going to sleep, for now. I promise to study tomorrow for real. Lol.

Ugh. Perio Pathogenesis, we meet again.
Here comes the rain (-y long weekend).
I was too stressed and tortured (emotionally and psychologically - i even forgot that it was our special day lol) that day that i didn’t hesitate to get a dose of junk that i long craved for. I thought i didn’t deserve this but a few hours after, i found out the results of a practical exam. Thank You Lord for the awesome yet unexpected news. :’) (October 8,2013 and also our 43rd ♥)
Waiting, staring, pondering and bored awhile ago.
