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. 🙂


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.

Time to post something nice. I’ll start from scratch.
What to type?

First day of the second semester.

As what I expect, there would be new classmates. The Faculty of Eng’g doesn’t have any block sections, it changes every semester.

I arrived around 6:35 in the morning. I only saw 1 new face when I arrived, he was very quiet. Reading a book and was all alone at the back. As usual, Lhai & the others were there. *IT-B pa rin \m/* Around 6:45, a group of students arrived. A girl sat next to me. I was still for a moment then I looked at Clar. I was like “Kakausapin ko ba?” and she was like “Uh. Ikaw bahala. Friendly ka naman! *LAUGHS*”. I don’t know what to do —- Oh, boy. It was just like the first day of college again.

Scan your surrounding first. A girl sitting next to me (Woah. She’s tall, I guess), a boy next to her(Joker?), 3 guys behind us(Namumula ata yung isa? Is it normal or what?), and 3 guys in front of the joker(Parang may sarili silang mundo? /:) :P)

“Anong section kayo galing?”

That’s what I said. Yep. THAT’S WHAT I SAID. =)) Awkward stage. I KNOW. -.- The girl replied that they were from 1 CS-E. So Clar and I were surrounded by the new IT-Bs. *OKAY LANG. LET’S BE FRIENDLY CLAR. =))*

So the guys behind us were Jonas, Jai & Reggie.
The girl beside me was Verna and the guy beside her was Ted.
I don’t know the names of the three in front of Ted. *Kasi nga may sarili silang mundo* =))

Lhai was her usual jolly self. She was going around the room, asking the new IT-Bs names. We met Jomar, Dominique, Sean & Chester. On the other side was Deo & Cathy plus Jullie Anne. They seem quiet?

As we were going around the room, we approached the 3 guys *who were having their own world*. Finally we got their names. Mato, Drans & John. —Mukha naman silang mabait at tahimik? That’s what I thought. :> As soon as we got their names, Julius, Paolo, Ced, Elaine and other past IT-Bs entered the room. I started shouting, “WEH! Ba’t may A dito? WEH WEH WEH.” I was not bitter, okay? I was just joking them. NOT BULLYING. Well, except for Julius. =)) As expected, we didn’t meet all the professors that day. Only one came in. Mrs. Zaide.

The bell rang, I looked at my watch—-11am. I wanted to bond with the new IT-Bs but I guess it’s just not the time. Maybe tomorrow—-or the day after.

How many weeks has it been? /:) I never knew that IT-B for this semester would be fun. Yes, I miss the other guys but it was just okay. Erick, Pons, Clar & I plus Von were still together. We got close with some of the people from 1 CS-E.

I forgot to tell you, I was nominated as the class president.
And in the other section, Julius was also the class president.
Wow. 1 IT-B \m/

First impressions. Let’s see:

Verna-Tall? Tahimik? Yep. Check
Ted-Joker? Check.
Jai-Matalino? CHECK!
Reggie-Tahimik? HMM. Partly CHECK?
Mato-Mahiyain? Pwede na. CHECK
John-Tahimik? UHUH! CHECK!
Drans-Maingay? NOOO. X X X! =)) Ang tahimik ni Drans. :-“
Raymart-Makulit? CHECK CHECK CHECK!
Dominique-Maingay? NOOO.
Sean-Makulit? YEP.
Chester-Mahiyain? CHECK.
Jomar-Tahimik? CHECK!
Deo-Makulit? Yep. CHECK. XD XD
Cathy-Friendly? CHECK. 😉
Julie-PE MATE! CHECK. :>
Gilian-Maingay? Noo.
Colleen-Friendly? Yep!
Crizzy-Friendly? Sobrang CHECK CHECK! 🙂
Melvin-Makulit? YESSSZZ.

That is my list. The people whom I gave a first impression and found out if it’s true or not.
I have 3 more months left to know the real them.

The greatest catch though was, I never expected that there would be a person that would become a not-so-ordinary someone for me. Lalala. It’s for you to guess. *If you’re from 1 IT-B, there’s no need though. :-“

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?

Moving up.
Sleepless nights.
Techno Hub.


Whatever word I may use, it would still narrow down into one word: COLLEGE.

I can not believe it’s our last day of wearing our school uniform tomorrow and I can not even imagine myself wearing other ones. I’ve been wearing that navy blue skirt since I was a prep student with the helmet hair style.

11 years.
From the ribbon to the neck tie.
From the full bangs, no bangs to side swept bangs.
From the two-student per computer without aircon to the one student per computer with aircon.
From Sister Tarcilla, Sister Rose to Sister Catalina.
From the Drama Club, Guhit Kamay Club, F.E.M.M.E. to the Dulaang Kabataan.

I’ve been a Bridgetine for eleven years.

I may use the word “nabubulok na ako dito.”, but I will not deny that I love this school. It’s the place where it all began. The experiences, dreams and of course, friends. My life would not be this great and exciting if I did not meet them.

College life will be just around in the corner in two or three months, we may not know what may happen but I do hope that one day when we decide to meet again, we would have a good talk. A talk about those days. A talk just like those days.

I want to believe that your high school friends will always be the people you want to be with until your hair turns gray.

A college friend may know how you act, but its your high school friend who knows why you act that way.


Two more weeks and I’ll experience a new school life—College. I really don’t know what to expect or what to do. I’ve been preparing for this new stage of my life since day one of my grade six year. Weird? No. I just had that personality to prepare as early as possible for something in the future.

I was browsing my planner a while ago when I remembered something, two months ago I was just writing stuffs in it for our promenade and graduation. I even wrote every bit of information I needed those days. The stuffs I need to bring, the activities we’ll do some day of the week, etc. *SIGHS*

I miss my friends and I know I’ll even miss the more in the future. We’re now studying in different schools and even our schedules don’t fit each other’s. I’ll miss our lunch bonding moments, the laughs, the tears, the jokes and the simple “we’re standing each other” moment.

Monica, my classmate and friend for four years, is my school mate again. BUT I guess we won’t be seeing each other that MUCH. Why? Her schedule’s 8:30-5:30 while I have a 7:00-12:00 schedule. I guess that’s how things will be. How it should be? I protest! *CRIES*

I remember the first time I stepped into the high school building. I wanted a fresh start those days. I had a barkada. We were twenty four. We were left by three the following year. My second year was my best year. THE BEST YEAR EVER. I met my true friends those days.



***K DESTINY. Don’t we have any choices?


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
