I felt my outfit wasn’t as colorful as I used to. Haha but anyway, I love its comfort and style combo :) Laced, stripes and textures were be mixed and matched.
Warning: 1. this is another photo-heavy post :O 2. Word-heavy too ;) You might want to scroll down fast to see the other outfit shots and don’t read this novel-like incoherent release of thoughts :)
Wore this last January 15, 2012 ..Sunday ..A year after January 15, 2011 (malamang haha) ..A year after I received my acceptance letter from my dream university: the Ateneo de Manila University. Read my status updates when I was fourth year high school and you’ll see how set my mind was in studying at the Ateneo! “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam..Lux in Domino..I love you Ateneo” “I’m a proud Redeemian and an Atenean in the making” statuses and such..
However, January 15, 2012, I found myself taking the ACET again (for the transferees) Yep. To cut the story short, I didn’t end up in ADMU. Why? One word: money. Haha.
But on the other side of the coin, even though I started my first year in college with inner tantrums and sort of bitterness ‘coz I didn’t become a Blue Eagle, eventually I fell in love with UPLB. (yet I never gave up my Atenean dream. When I dream, I really really dream persistently haha) I have been truly thankful to God for bringing me in the beautiful UPLB for my first year in college, I always said that to myself for the past months. “Even if I had the chance last year to study in Ateneo immediately after I graduate, I’d still opt to study in UPLB for academic year 2011-2012. I can’t trade the memories and moreover, the acquaintances, the teachers that marked, and the friends I met in LB who I wouldn’t know if I didn’t study here.” I was really reiterating those lines to myself. But take note of the word first year in college. Read between the lines, and you’ll notice the little but persistent intention I had about spending my next years in college at AdMU. Little ‘coz I know it would be hugely difficult to transfer so I opened myself to the option of finishing my studies in UP. (but let everything be done according to God’s will) Indeed, I don’t know why I really never dropped my dream back in highschool. My persuasive speech for spcm 1 was about Ateneo, how’s that? I’m in love. You can’t blame me. Char.
(Note: I just want to clear that I have nothing against with UP as a whole. I truly admire this premier university of the Philippines. Who wouldn’t? Also, my Dad’s from UP Diliman so I can’t hate UP as a whole and I won’t ever do that. And again, I already said that UPLB has a special place in my heart because of the memories, and the people that made an impact. I just really dream of Ateneo and I can’t answer why here coz I will write a novel. Personal preferences, respect that. :)
Open to the option of not being able to transfer, this is what I told myself: I don’t know when, it might be next year, or it might be after the next three years, but all I know is, one day, I’ll be with you. AdMU.
One day I will wake up and finally be able to call myself a true-blue eagle.
But fast forward, to cut the story short, Mom said I just ‘wasted’ my bucks in taking another ACET ‘coz I just took it but the deadline of submission of requirements passed without me passing any of the following: TCG, Good moral, recommendations, essay and all other files needed. My lack of time management added to the busiest-days-ever last February to March left me unable to do all the rigorous tasks in completing the application. Okay laugh at me now. Haha. I was disappointed ‘coz I thought I can know the result, just at least the result of the exam, even if I didn’t complete my application. But no. How can I be so excited this May with regards to the ACET if there is no result to look forward to because of my unwanted negligence!! Ugh. Okay. So the latter will take part in my dream “…or after the next three years” Okay, I just might take further studies in AdMU. But I also want to study Fashion Design at SoFA or FIP? I really don’t know. But whatever God’s will is, I will follow. (Please, Lord, make me follow :) Anyway, seeing the pictures below and all the pics shot by Dad really make me not regret the money we spent in taking the exam which I later ‘unwantedly’ took for granted. Seriously :)

below are some pictures in remembrance of the exam :’)
^this was our sitting arrangement. Hmm, I found the ACET for transferees not as hard as the ACET for freshmen (which I found a little harder than the UPCAT 2011. I don’t want issues, opinion lang ha) If you took ACET 2011 for freshmen and ACET 2012 for transferees as well, do you agree? ^_^
btw here’s is my test permit. Aww. Bachelor in Fine Arts in Information Design!! OMG O.o (anyway last year the course I took was AB Communication :) maybe i’m not really for Ateneo, (if you read the last paragraph of what I wrote in the first part of this post, you know why ) well.. not for NOW :] I’m enjoying my stay in UPLB and loving every bit of it, but I am not giving up on my Atenean dream ;) One day, I’ll come back for you, Ey Di Em Yu :)
So that was another post. Whew. Sorry for too much words. I know I’m not in my personal blog O.o but I don’t know why I can’t keep my fingers from typing. Especially May’s already coming. Okay.. anyway, in case you read every single word above thank you so much for bearing all my release of thoughts haha.
God bless and stay stylish!
^PS hype my look in lookbook here.
