they were meant to have them
Ever experienced your shirt sticking to your back like scotch tape, sweat dripping all over your body as if you just came out of the shower, or going out of the house feeling you’ve just entered an oven? If you’ve been to the Philippines during summertime, you know exactly what I’m talking about. And during these days, any escape from the sizzling 35 degrees of the metro seems like a good idea. Sad to say, but that wasn’t our idea when we decided to go on a 2-hour drive to Tagaytay. It just so happened that I’ve developed an interest into internet traveling: searching for hotels, restaurants and whatnot, not to mention that agoda.com and tripadvisor.com have become my new best friends. So when my brother and I came across Tagaytay, we just knew it was the perfect place for a quick vacation–just a road trip from Manila, lots of activities, wonderful scenery, and there’s this new amusement park that hosts the country’s highest ferris wheel!
Performed our first minor surgery, yo! Successfully turned boys into men, in turn making us feel like real doctors. Priceless experience indeed ;)
Oh the life of a medical student! It’s not always as busy as it seems but when those not-so-busy days come, we spend them breathing fresh air, stress eating, getting wasted, and sleeping for hours on rather than sitting in front of the computer and doing a blog post. Not that anybody cares but yeah, that pretty much explains my absence. Besides, even if I wanted to write, there isn’t much to write about. My days are mostly confined to a four-cornered auditorium that is most conducive to sleeping than anything. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not complaining. I love medicine and although things may not have gone as smooth-sailing as I wished them to be, I am completely happy with my life right now. Nuks! Haha
Anyway, I’ve been on vacation for weeks now and I’m therefore back doing my old hobbies, writing/blogging included. And this time, it’s not only on tumblr because just yesterday, I’ve also created a WordPress account. It’s coffeetablenotebook.wordpress.com. Nah, I’m not abandoning tumblr. I just want a more private blog free of reblogs and more on words than pictures. Instagram could easily do the latter for me. I’m also embarrassed whenever I post extremely long entries that eat up most space of my followers’ dashboards. And finally, a WordPress gives me a false sense that nobody’s reading my blog even if I’m promoting it myself. Consider me someone insecure of my writing and proud at the same time. Oh well, I don’t understand myself either. I’m just weird like that. Haha!
Things didn’t turn out the way they were supposed to, but what can you do? You must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it.
Simply one of my best birthdays so far. Rainfall on the eve of my birthday and just before it ended signifying, as most people believe, blessings. Got to spend the day with the most important people in my life ♥. Guilt-free pamamasyal, partly because I already studied as much as I can last Saturday but mostly because I just have the perfect excuse to not study at all. It’s my birthdayyy! A Jambalaya birthday song from the Gumbo staff that went with a Mardi Gras-inspired headdress that made me feel like a princess even for a couple of minutes. Plus the food, gifts, surprises, and the warmest greetings from y’all. Aww! Thank you! :)
