WHITE LIGHT: The Search for the Ideal Engineering Personality 2010

I never pictured myself walking on the stage wearing pretty clothes or presenting myself in front of people. Sure, I loved the stage because of my theatre days when I was in high school, but, who would ever thought I would be ramping there. I still smile sheepishly when I remember everything.

This is one of those unexpected blessings I received from God. I met a lot of people. Let’s give emphasis to A LOT, okay? Hahaha. The pageant boosted my confidence and made me realize a lot of things.

I would like to thank Rommel Guevara for being the best Mr. Information Technology/partner. We both placed in the pageant and we have received numerous special awards. I would like to thank people for appreciating our retro look in the formal wear. It was a bit Katy Perry though. Hehe. 😛

From the pre-pageant to the coronation night, thank you, everyone. Thank you, kuya VJ & ate Candice. Thank you, White Lighters. Thank you, Rom. Thank you, Papa. Thank you, God. 🙂


2010 has been, without a doubt, the most exciting year for me. Best one, so far.  From January until this December, God has been showering me with blessings I would never imagine. I have experienced new things and have learned a lot with the people around me. I laughed. I cried. I became stronger. I met a lot of friends. I may have gained few enemies along the way, especially those who misunderstood my actions or who I am, I’m still thankful for them. They made me realize that no matter how good you are to people, you cannot please everybody.

It’s also been a year without my mother and I admit I have not yet recovered. I guess it would take some time.

I lost a very important person to me this year. Around the first quarter of the year. I miss you. I still do. There’s a small hope from inside of me that we’ll fix everything. It’s not our fault IT didn’t work out. I miss you. I miss you as my boy bestfriend.

My bonding time with my high school friends was mostly during the debuts some of our batchmate had. Even though we’re not together everytime (like we were in high school), I know you girls will be the best damn thing I had. See you soon, future bridesmaids!

For my class this college, I cannot thank you enough for the time you have given me and each and everyone of us. You have proved me that college is exciting, fun and of course, memorable. Everyday with you guys is like a plus in my life. Thank you.

I do not want to make this long (for I plan to have another post. Hehe.) because I do not want to spoil my other posts.

2010, you have showered me with blessings.

God, you gave them all to me.

Thank you. Thank you for an awesome year.



I was cleaning my room a while ago (because I have to. It doesn’t look like a girl’s room anymore because of the pieces of papers I used during our exam week, plus the books and notes.) and look what I found!

My planner plus these 2 bracelet that were given to me by Mato. It glows in the dark? Haha. Idk how to describe them. He bought it during UST’s Paskuhan last year. It seems childish, but believe me, you were cool that night if you have one of these. I saw it in my drawer. I kept it pala ‘no?

NEXT. This. This BLING BLING! B-) This was given to us by the ESC during our Freshman Walk last year.

First stop, we had to reserve the schedule we picked. 1 IT-B pa rin! *SMILES* I, with Erick, arrived at UST around 6:04 in the morning. Excited? Not really. Haha. I just want to be early. Ayoko kasing maubusan ng slot.

Being early, Clar, Erick & I were laughing and teasing one another “EARLY BIRDS, HA?”. It was really funny. (And yes, I cried while laughing. If you really know me, you won’t be surprised.) When some of our blockmates arrived, we were bullying them —- B! B! B! Wag na kayong mag-A! Ganiyanan naman, e. *It had no effect. 😐 :)) They still picked A over B.*


*The day before*

Shannel: What the? May MONDAY classes na tayo?!
Clar: What? Saan mo nakita?

Haha. We were surprised we had Monday classes. So much for being in the Faculty of Eng’g. I thought Monday is a no classes day. 😐 Anyway, PE schedule every Tuesday is still my pick. Parang hindi ako sanay na isang araw lang pahinga ko. Psh.


Around 7:30, the guard allowed us to go inside. As usual, nanguna ako*Evil Smile* I was first in the line. :> *SMUG* My blockmates were laughing at me, they were telling me, “Ikaw talaga. Una lagi.” =)) I. KNOW. RIGHT. But waaaait, we had one little problem. We were not sure where is the venue of the actual reservation of the sections was. We were receiving texts that it was in the IT faculty and another one saying it will be in Rms 44, 45 & 46! We were srsly confused. I was going up and down the 3rd and 4th floor to see any signs where it might be… and came kuya ——*I don’t know his name*. He told us to follow him.


So mali yung pinilahan namin?

Well, not really. It was really in the IT faculty BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE! 😐 All of us were running/racing to get in front of the door.

As usual, nasa harapan pa rin kami. =))

Hail, 1 IT-B! \:D/

We met Sir Alex inside. We were the first batch to enter the room. Hello, IT-B. We can now breathe easily. Yay!

2nd stop: Viewing of the available PE schedules.





What the? ARNIS AND KORFBALL LANG PWEDE? You must be kidding us right?

The whole class was shocked to see the list of available PE schedules. 😐 No choice, I had to choose between a better PE (KORFBALL) and the better schedule (ARNIS).

GULPS. Arnis?! I may pick that one because I don’t want to wait for 4 hours for Korfball. 😦

I woke-up one rainy Wednesday morning, sat and stared at the dark room. For a moment, I wasn’t able to process anything, then… BOOM! Hello, college. That day would be my first in the University of Santo Thomas, and it was raining. Oh, joy. I may already experience the flood they’re talking about, I told myself. That would be the day that I would step on a new floor, walk through a new corrigdor and see different people. It made me feel… sad. I grew up in St. Bridget. Loyalty awardee— 11 years.

First jeep ride early in the morning. 5:45AM, I checked my watch. A lot of time before classes starts. Nika and I were supposed to meet up in LRT, but with some misunderstanding, I was waiting at the entrance and she was waiting at the platform. We met around 6:15AM.

Am I going to be late for the first day?

Surprisingly, no. I just experienced riding in a pedicab while the rain was falling really hard. I was wet, I tell you. WET!

I arrived around 6:55AM. Joooy. 5 minutes. Wow.
Wait, I’m not yet done.
Check the reg. form. Room 44? Yes. Room 44. Fourth floor.
It was a tiring step step step journey.
Hello, classroom. Hello…*gulps* CLASSMATES.

Is it just me or the population of female students in that room was outnumbered by the opposite sex?

Wow. First day trauma.

That was about 2 months ago, I was really not comfortable with all the 4:30AM waking time. I needed some more rest, afterall, I am still a teenager. I was going through bizarre thoughts like, “What if maging dead kid ako?”. Funny as it is, it’s true. Weird. I. KNOW. RIGHT.

I feel it’s like years ago, but the funny thing is, I feel my high school life was more recent.

I miss high school. Halata naman, ‘di ba?

After weeks, I got to know most of my classmates— Clar, Rianne, Julius, Paolo, Renz, Wenny, Cedric and others. We had the traditional lunch together after class. (’cause our class ends around 12) Surprisingly, I adjusted easily. I was the vice president of our class, nominated by the president.

And wait, I have a guy classmate named Szanelle.
Cool, right?

So, I succeeded. Hello, blog. More stories! FRESHMAN WALK, especially.
Good night. Let me have some rest, and congratulate me, will ‘ya?

Guess Who?

Oh, hello.

First of all, I have no idea why you're here. It's either you're a random passer-by or an extreme stalker.

Who knows I had this blog? I'm in Tumblr already. Maybe, I just needed a real blog. Not the OOOOH!! I like this. *CLICKS REBLOG* kind of blog.

So, anyway. Just sit back and relax. If ever you find this blog annoying, feel free to click the red X button at the upper right corner of your browser or you could simply hit ALT + F4
