First week of school in a few snapshots

  • We jumped into Sylvia Plath’s poems in english - which I might say are quite depressing. 
  • First week of english class and I already made a sassy comment. My teacher didn’t really appreciate it. 
  • Apparently, we have way too many freshmen this year so the seniors need to give way and share lockers. Lucky for me, sucks for my sister, I secured a locker with her hehe. 
  • At least for a week, people knew I’m not a niner since I got to wear the link crew shirts. Lots of niners asked me for direction and 80% of them, I’m sure I led the right way. 
  • Aside from yearbook, HSB started this week as well! It was nice to see some fresh faces in the crowd :)

I went to Krispy Kreme with my cousins and dad for the last friday night of the summer. We were all craving the original glazed and we were definitely not settling for the ones they sell at costco!

I’m glad that my school and house is sort of near KK, whenever I’m craving a donut (or two, let’s be real here) I can easily bus to the store. 

I can’t even remember when I first had KK, but I know for sure it was in Manila. I get so excited when my mom tells us that we’re dropping by the KK store. Back then, their friendly employees would welcome customers by the door handing out free original glazed doughnuts to everyone that comes in. 

I think at one point I had KK Server as one of the jobs I want to have hahaha! It’s such a great thing when you can associate great memories to a store or food. It’s an instant time machine.

Celebrated my friend’s 17th at K-Pocha in Dundas. It was a girls night out kinda thing. The Korean restaurant was small and cozy. I’m not exactly sure what the names are of the food we ate but I can definitely describe them, lol!

My favourite ones were the spicy seafood rice cake and the beef sashimi (yes, raw meat!) which is on the top left corner. The sizzling buttered corn was such a yummy appetizer too. 

After opening her gifts and eating the cake, we went to the kareoke bar right next door. I couldn’t stay the whole night because I had to get up early for freshmen orientation the next day. I did sing for a couple of songs. 

We chose songs from 2008-2010 like Irreplaceable, Knock You Down and You Belong With Me; what a throwback! I had such a great time with these girls and I definitely hope we do something like this once again!

Thanks to my bestie Joanna for tagging me in this! 

  1. I hoard lots of photos and videos. My family enjoys looking at them during special events i.e. birthdays, thanksgiving, Christmas. 
  2. I am not a picky eater. I am down to try just about any kind of food (except those weird, exotic foods like fried beatles yikes!). 
  3. I am super sassy but in a funny kind of way. I’ve been told by my friends that my sass makes them laugh haha.
  4. I am both “fob-y” (Fresh Off the Boat) and white washed all at the same time. As much as i love kareokes and trendy bubble tea cafes, I also love starbucks, fall & everything stereotypical about a “white girl”
  5. I have the tendency to fail at photo or blogging challenges but so far I am up to date with Project 52 and 100 days of Happiness :)

Tagging: 320pixelsofauradelle, xrodea, bookishcath, thesubtleintrovert, dawndeleon, yeoshin-s, ravonnilu, aiiicaaa, februarynineteen, muztache, & anyone else who wants to do the tag! :)

It was a crazy busy day I completely forgot to take pictures with my iphone. I was mainly taking pictures with the school camera for yearbook. So thrilled to be a link crew leader again this year!

I finally found an opportunity to wear my minnie ears that I bought in America two months ago. A few people complimented me about my headband and it honestly made my day; I’m talking bout random people like parents, the cashier at Rabba (lol), the custodians and etc. 

I always enjoy talking to younger kids about high school and my experience. I feel that I’ve learned so much these past 3 years and I would love to let other kids learn from it too, from the happiest moments to the saddest ones. 

I felt so old mentioning that I will be a senior this year and reminiscing everything that has happened. 

Tomorrow the most awaited year starts and I’m semi-ready for this crazy roller coaster ride.
