Here's the grad pic I've been rambling about in my previous post. Notice that stray hair untucked in my left ear? How untidy. Haha.

Anyway, it's been days already after graduation and the past few days have been a slew of happy-nings. We had our Thanksgiving celebration with family (I'm the last one to finally graduate, this is for you Dad). Then I went job hunting under the scorching heat of the sun and this weekend was our college-ender barkada getaway (to be shared soon). 

But the whole "I'm-done-with-school-time-to-face-the-real-world" thing is not yet totally sinking in me. Medyo slow poke pa. Haha. Sometimes, I feel like there will still be school this coming June. Like once, I caught myself thinking what notebook to buy. Haha. I was thinking of the same routine with friends at school and life will just stay the same. But NO of course it's not. Life will happen soon or if not, it already is. Friends will go their own way and chase their dreams.Routines will be different. Life will change. BIGTIME.

It's seems it was only yesterday that I was making my highschool year ender blog post and now, here I am typing and reminiscing my whole college sojourn. A lot can be said about college. I must say, all the cliches are true. A roller-coaster ride, the most memorable four years of your life, an eye-opener and so on. It's really somehow ridiculous to try to sum up all the happy-nings, memories, struggles, experiences, crazy things and lessons I've learned and gone through college simply because there were too many and some are just ineffable. Chos.

But one thing is for sure: college changed me, in a good way. 

My perspective of the world changed and my understanding of people widened. I got to figure out myself better (though I have to admit there is still so much to find out and improve). I got to learn a lot of things both academically and real-life wisdom. I got to survive procrastination, deadlines and whatnot. And best of all, I got to meet awesome friends that I will all hold close dear to my heart. Cheeeeesy. But you know, I remind myself rin naman to tone down sentimentality and face reality. Haha.

I've been on alone-time trips lately and muni-muni moments of what to do with my life. It's thrilling and scary all at the same time. We just keep on bumping with contradictions in life, don't we? It's saddening because you'll be apart with friends and yet it's exciting because of the endless possibilities of meeting out new people out there. 

It's the end but really,  it's only just beginning. Chos.
Real world, please be nice to me!!! :))




Photos from a quick Sunday morning pool with my cousin a few weeks ago.

If you happen to notice in the first photo, I got my hair cut short and had it "repaired" (i.e rebond). Oh no! Andyan na si crush! Hahaha. I must admit that I kind of miss my old, long, thick and wavy hair. I miss the feeling of waking up in the morning and my messy hair is all over my face and then I get to smell that no-shampoo-for-two-days salty kind of scent it emits. Hmmmm! I even miss my nasty habit of plucking out dead hair or cutting out horrible split-ends. No joke.

Also, while I'm now enjoying this new straighter and thinner hair of mine, I must suffer the consequence of not allowing my hair to get wet with chlorine-filled pools or even the seawater for a year. Which kind of sucks because I really like swimming and floating and the beach. Sigh. See? The things we sacrifice for vanity. 

Needless to say, I didn't really enjoy the water and the pool pictured above. I was just knee-dipping while looking at my cousin with jealousy as she enjoyed the pool all to herself. Sad.

But all in all, I'm quite contented with the result. It's high-time to welcome change because frankly, if I look at my previous photos nothing really much have changed - at least in physical terms - about me. (Not even my freakin' height!) And wait till you see my graduation pic! I had a fuggin stray hair untucked behind my ear. :(

Speaking of graduation, I CAN'T WAIT! It's only a few days away. But I'll save all my mushy musings about that in another post.

So that's it. 
I don't even know how one can relate the photos above with my writing content. Lol.
