Chronicles of Elle's roller coaster ride.
A whole entire week that I have been showered with love. No, I didn’t realized it just now that I am loved but of course I just want to say that having your loved ones make you feel loved is unexplainable happiness. That feeling that you only have a week left and then you’ll be off to another place far away from them and they show you how they’re going to miss you so much. My time was really well spent that week. I was simply happy and overwhelmed by all of their love. Made me cry tears of joy everyday that week. I feel as if I am the luckiest girl in the planet to have them all love me so much because I can feel it in my heart that I love them all as much too.
Monday, I spent it with my family. We went to restaurant called “Eat n’ Fill”. It really live up to its name because they surely filled our tummies as we ate. The restaurant was actually nice because they had an eat all you can promo thing with salad, pizza and pasta. We were so full. We ate a total of 3 plates of salad, 4 plates of pasta and 2 plates of pizza of different types.
Tuesday, I cleaned my room and I discovered a lot. I found photo albums, scrapbooks and letters (that were given to me by my families and friends). I viewed and read every single thing and it all made me smile.
Wednesday, I watched IronMan3 with Marc. It was purely random. We were just walking in the mall and getting lost with our conversation when we saw the poster and a photo booth.
Yes, the movie ticket came with a free picture to a photo booth. It was fun. It was even the first time that Marc concentrated in watching the movie (normally, he would ask a lot of questions and not really pay attention because he would prefer all movies to have subtitles). Earlier that day I surprised him with lunch which was me cooking shrimp sinigang (one of his favorite dishes) for him.
Thursday, I had a baking session with my sisters and cousins in the morning. We made brownies and it was surprisingly delicious. It was the perfect activity to bond with them. In the afternoon I caught up with my 2 of my barkadas, Lalena and Cathleen. We just chilled in a tea place called Zentea.
We talked practically for hours and it was pretty much nice to catch up with them.
Friday, I had my last date with Marc before I go. We were like kids in the arcade singing our hearts out in karaoke, shooting hoops in basketballand playing video games like racing cars and tekken. After that, we relaxed a bit by walking, talking and just spending time with each other until we had to go home. This was also the day where he returned my laptop and it is like good as new now because he reformatted and optimized everything for me. He has awesome skills in terms of fixing softwares.
Saturday and it was packing-my-bags day. My friends, Lalena and Cathleen weren’t contented with our last meeting so they helped me packed as well which made it a lot easier and more fun for me. There is never a dull moment with them. Papa even cooked us food which was delicious as usual. What I couldn’t forget was they both hugged me for idk how many minutes but it surely felt long and wonderful.
Sunday, our usual family day (extended family included). My cousins were joking around while my titos, titas, lola and lolo were all giving me advice. I could practically sum up all of their messages and what they wanted me to understand with just two words: “take care”.
An unforgettable week which made me REALLY happy. It was all love.

83/365 - Graduation with the birthday girl, Lea, also known as my partner-in-crime. We met during our first day in college. She’s definitely my college buddy and a friend for keeps. 4 years of friendship and counting!
P.S. Forgive us for the haggard look. It was so hot in the coliseum that it felt like we were inside an oven and the ceremony ran for like about 4 hours.
So proud of my friends for their achievements and bagging the Best Thesis Award!! (L-R) Paul (Cum Laude), Marc (Academic Achievement Awardee), Me, Gen (PSITE-WV Awardee & Magna Cum Laude)

68/365 - The Corps d’elite nomination was an achievement for me because other than granting the club a full accreditation status, the club was included in the said to be “A-list” and even though we did not won the award of the Most Outstanding Academic Club, Computer Science Society is still the best club there is for me. It was really such an honor serving everyone in the CSS and no words can ever described how thankful I am for everyone; my co-officers, committee, moderator and members, everyone!!

44/365 - So this is what it feels like. I realized that truly it really is a wonderful feeling to do stuffs like these for that special someone. All the efforts you are willing to do just to see him smile and make him feel special. I customized the box and cut the chocolates into hearts myself. And I gotta admit this is actually my first time to make something like this on the night before Valentine’s day.

43/365 - First time to be a guest speaker. I was choosen to represent our department in a career talk. The experince was fun! For me, it was like a talk show wherein people or the host ask you questions regarding your experiences or what you know about the course you are taking. The questions really made me contemplate and I enjoyed answering them. I didn’t even expect that I would be given a certificate and a token. I could really use the water container. Anyways, when it was over I felt like I wanna do it again! Haha!
