Ninety-Nine

It's finally Thursday and that means I don't have school until Tuesday! I'm so glad that I got Mondays and Fridays off, however because of my busy schedule of working, volunteering and the assignments I get from my classes it feels like my whole week is busy rather than being free. Although I would like to have some free time it makes me happy that I'm busy everyday doing something rather than nothing. It keeps me productive and it also gets me ready for what's to come in Nursing!

I'm going to start on Tuesday
As I said before on that 50 day challenge I'm really bad at writing. Particularly English which is true because I got my summary midterm back and let me just say I didn't do that hot. Although I did pass I just didn't get the grade I wanted and this was because I left out a big chunk of information from the article and didn't mention it in my summary. I knew I wasn't going to do well because of that and I accepted it, however I did lose marks on my grammar(e.g run-on sentences. I'm famous for that). I took her feedback really well and guess what lesson learned.

My next class was Bio and I had a quiz. A quiz on digestion. Let me just say that quiz was super easy not because I studied(I didn't even study) but because my old grade 12 bio teacher taught us the digestion unit so well that I remembered everything my instructor taught us. Although this bio is more in depth I still managed to answer each question without hesitation. 

Wednesday
I don't really know how I feel about Wednesday anymore. Wednesday are horrible because I have Psychology and its Statistics. The worst class ever! I don't know why Nurses need it but they do so I'm taking it. It's not that it's hard to grasp its just hard to pay attention in that class because for starters its taught in a lecture hall and I'm not a fan of that. My legs cramp, too many people and the board is too far away. However I do manage to pull my weight in that class and get high B's on the quizzes. Although this quiz I didn't do well on solely because I barely studied for this. Again, lesson learned. (But I did do very well on the homework). Did I forget to mention next class is my midterm? Fun. 

Today(Thursday)
As mentioned in the Tuesday summary I talked about writing a quiz and how easy it was. It was super easy because somehow I managed to get 23.5/25 which made me feel really happy. I guess getting a 95% in Digestion when I was in Bio 12 did it's work.

Finally my last class, Creative Writing. I have mixed emotions about this class. I have to say what I really like about this class is that its speculative. Speculative is where my stories usually land on except last semester because it was real life-fiction. Another reason why I like it is because of the workshops. I love getting feedback on my stories and I love constructed criticism on any of my work. ESPECIALLY MY STORIES. The things I don't like is that its a late class and I barely talk for the workshops which ultimately hurts my participation mark. However I managed to get by in Creative Writing last semester let's just hope I get by in this one. (Yes, I shall post the story I submitted to my class on this blog. Eventually)

I honestly don't know how I get by those classes every week but somehow I do. Anyways enough about my classes I just wanna briefly touch upon that Ben Nye - Banana Powder! I said I was going to do a review right after I used it and today I used it. However, I don't wanna review on it just yet because I actually want to provide pictures like what Kim Kardashian did! So please stay tuned! (I will be using it tomorrow and including my foundation!) Hazaah!



I know I have been playing with my pictures but let's see if anyone can see what I'm talking about.

The Game Over picture is this really popular game called Flappy Bird.
If you have an iPhone or an Android I suggest you download it. Beware its addicting and challenging!

Banana

I finally got my hands on the Ben Nye - Banana Powder! After watching a bunch of YouTube guru's I decided to grab myself a bottle so I can test it and see what the whole rave about this product was. I didn't try it yet because I want to use it when I'm going out and hopefully I'll remember to use it tomorrow because I am going out. A lot of make-up gurus have been crazy over this because the celebrity Kim Kardashian uses it on her face! She uses it for her highlighting and contouring part! If anyone is having troubles with using this product there are bunch of videos and even Kim's picture is helpful on where to put it on! It acts as a translucent powder so the lightness of this product won't show rather it'll blend and cover your dark circles under your eyes!
Don't fret for all my make-up lovers as an amateur I'll do a full review on this and also on the two foundations I bought for myself as a Christmas gift for surviving Semester 1!

2) What I'm Really Bad At

There are tons of things that I'm bad at. I don't think I need to say this but I'm really bad at singing and dancing but that's the least of my concern. I mean yeah it would be pretty cool if I had a great voice like my friends Vanessa, Sarah or Stephanie but I don't and I'm okay with that. I guess this question is really asking what I'm actually bad at that I feel the most "insecure" about. I put that in quotation marks because it's not something I frown upon everyday. One thing I'm really bad at is writing. My writing is atrocious. It's filled with run-on sentences, comma splices and the grammar is the cherry on this sundae. I guess this writing can go under the topic 'English.' I'm terrible at this subject. I barely get any metaphors or see the real deeper meaning in the text. I pick this because in this semester I'm in two heavily based English course and I got to say I'm doing okay. For now. I've been trying to improve by reading more books, reading aloud and even asking friends for help. It worked because a couple of my friends said that I improved within the last year. I'm glad that I am moving forward and not just sitting there like a duck.
Of course there's a lot more things that I'm really bad at but that's the one that sticks out the most.

No Worries

I decided I'm going to take up that 50 Questions a day challenge. I know I didn't finished it on my other blog so I'm going to finish it since my New Years Resolution is "Never Give up on Something." I know I'm so literal!
1) Sexual Orientation

I guess this question is asking what's my sexual orientation. I don't think I have to point out the obvious that I'm heterosexual. I don't think in all my life that I've been attracted to the same sex. Although there are times where I call girls hot such as Megan Fox or Beyonce but I'm embracing and giving credits to them. However they are hot! I also call my girl friends hot or pretty or sexy but all in all its just a loving way of me telling them to rock it! I don't think I should explain myself even more because a lot of people might get the wrong message. Gosh this is weird. Anyways I like to support everyone on their sexual orientation. You're you, whatever makes you comfortable be you. If you like men and you're a guy who cares? If you're a woman and you like girls who cares? If you like both genders who cares? Be who you are and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Don't let anyone knock you down just because you're being true to yourself. I have a lot of friends who are #LGBT and I'm supporting them every step in their lives. Sexual Orientation shouldn't define whether a person is good or bad. What defines a person is through their actions and their mouth. Power to you loves!

I'm just trying to catch up on blogging and post some pictures Y(^_^)
January 3 , 2014.

 I got my nails done with my friend, Sharon
We then indulged ourselves with chocolate covered strawberries!
We decided to check out the store beside the nail salon.
It was pretty awesome and I guess worth the wait.

Then after I went to my friend's place to celebrate the New Year with some friends.
Great company and fun times.
It's so hard to take a damn picture with them
 KEWT
 Damn Richard... 
 Ugh this was so nasty.
 Passed out for what
 PEACE
 When we all doggy piled on both Michelles
 We tied their hair together cause they were puking together<3

To Do

UPDATE:

I'm finally going to complete my story where this guy helps people retrieve their memory through his power by fixing their "filmstrip." I'm going to submit this story for my character development story due tomorrow. How do I feel about it? I'm panicking because I don't know how to incorporate character development in this story. I don't even know how to end this story but I'm pretty damn excited. I'm excited that I'm going to finish this story because I've been procrastinating and working super slow on this story. Hooray for deadlines. I guess.

I'm slowly starting to get back into my school phase. Basically what this means is that I'm taking it seriously and I've been writing in my agenda everyday to remind me that I have to do stuff. I've been redoing my notes so I can understand the material and lessons that I learned in my classes. Most of all I've been studying too.

I know I have this problem when I'm with people. I usually like to keep to myself because I have this mentality: "being alone is good because you get a lot of things done." I know the workload isn't smaller but hey you only have yourself when you're really alone. It's kind of like a training and learning process. Anyways what I'm trying to get at is I'm slowly crawling out of that mentality. I don't want to but I realized I do need a course buddy in all of my courses. Just so I can compare my answers and to make new friends. New friends are nice. So far I've completed making new friends so I'm happy. Cheers.

Wow that last paragraph made me sound like a total loser and a dork. Hell, I'll admit it I am dork. Loser? I don't know maybe. I guess. Call me what you want I really don't care.

I'm enjoying this because it is occupying my free time, however that's not all. Volunteer.

Volunteer has been great. The nurses I volunteer with are amazing. They're so kind and helpful. They even want me to succeed and enjoy my company. When you surround yourself with positive people you start to feel positive. You just got to let their positiveness take control of your mood and you'll start to see the light in life.

Work has also been great. Somewhat. Work has been work. I say that because most of the coworkers that I love working with haven't been working with me lately. We're all back in school and doing our daily things in life. Other than that work has been work!

Basically everything in life is just going with the flow.
And so am I.

Change

You know those days where all you want to do is just lie in bed and do nothing? Where you just want to be alone with your thoughts while staring at the ceiling or wall? 

I do.

NYE

I'm back at trying to keep up to date with my post and pictures along with what I did for my holiday break. I believe I stopped on December, 30th. Here goes New Years Eve.

December 31, 2013
This was one hell of a meal.
Props to my Mother
 My Parents<3
 My Brother and His Gf!
 My bodyguards 
 Kuyas!
 My lovely mom
 Daddy<3
 Family Portrait
 So I didn't get the memo of silly faces?
 YAS
Honestly where would I be with out them?

I'm truly grateful that I got to spend time with my family on the New Year. Literally been there for me since day 1. Nothing but support, criticism, tough love, shoulders, ears, heart and warmth from them. Especially from my two never ending love 'rents.
