Yesterday was our Open House held by the ND/HRM/TM program and also our College Days. Those events lasted for 3 days and it started on Monday.

It was my first time to attend an open house (since I usually just stay at home because it's not really required to attend). I enjoyed the events, namely; the mocktail competition and the dessert buffet. I really looked forward to the latter since I was informed that we could EAT the food once the judging was finished. It was almost around 1 in the afternoon but it was worth the wait, I get to eat something from each table and I was full by the end of the day. Oh and before I forget, the ND team mostly placed during the events. And we also won the dessert buffet.

Here's our entry:

My friend and I watched Deadpool last Sunday and these are my thoughts. Now, I haven't read any of the comics but I'm still a fan, thanks to tumblr. All I know is that Deadpool or Wade Wilson is a fourth-wall breaking merc with a mouth, can regenerate quickly and good at combat.

I as much as possible avoided going to tumblr for a week, avoided watching any youtube reviews with spoilers because I was really looking forward to this movie. I also think that Ryan Reynolds is an awesome pick for Deadpool. He was born to play Deadpool.

I have to say that it surpassed my expectations. The movie was funny, filled with awesome action scenes. Right from the very first scene, it established itself pretty quickly. I won't spoil and you have to watch it for yourself. I won't spoil anything, all I can say is that you have to see this movie and it is definitely worth your time.

Today during our lab, we performed two experiments; "The Chemistry of Milk" & "Saponification".
We split into two groups, one working with the milk and the other is in charge of making the soap. I got grouped into making the soap.

The soap-making was a bit tiring as you need to constantly stir the mixture in the evaporating dish until a lump of solid is formed. My partner and I decided to take turns stirring so when she was doing that, I decided to wash the materials that we used so that there would be no hassle in returning the materials later. Now as I was cleaning the graduated cylinder, the tissue got stuck at the bottom so I put water to remove it easily. I used the stirring rod to get the tissue out since it was long. But then as I was cleaning it, the rod broke and so I have to pay for something......AGAIN. You see, last last week, I broke a test tube when I was cleaning it. Good thing it didn't cost much. As I was contemplating on why the world hates me so much right now this year 2016, I thought that it was better that the rod broke instead of the graduated cylinder. Even though it was only 10 mL, it costs Php300.00!!!

As a last note, I was in shock last Thursday when I found out that Sir Alan Rickman is dead. I loved him as Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series. Actually, he's my favorite character in the said series. I hope that he may find peace wherever he is right now. And a big thank you to you sir for making my childhood memorable!

So these are my thoughts with 2015.

These are the things that have happened to me this year:

-This year is the 1st time that I was made a leader in our laboratory (though we do take turns each term), so during prelims I volunteered as the leader since I don't want to be stuck with difficult experiments as we go on.

-I know I'm part of the minority here but: I enjoyed/loved Ant Man more than the Avengers: Age of Ultron. For me, AoU was just all over the place. And I can't stand, I repeat, I CAN'T STAND the fuckery that is BruceNat (I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, even my friends doesn't like it!). It's just so out of the blue and unnecessary, and let me tell you that Clint and Natasha have MORE chemistry than she has with Bruce( no, I don't hate Bruce). Those little scenes she has with Clint during the 1st clearly show how much they care about each other. You would think that it would be logical to progress their relationship into a romantic one but NOOOOOO. You have to shoehorn that stupid plot device that Clint is married just so we can have that farm. I've read a lot of tumblr posts where it could be handled properly! I better stop now or this will turn into a rant.

In Ant Man, they gave me characters that I could truly care and relate to, like Scott Lang. And then there's his adorable daughter Cassie, his pals. So that's that, moving on.

-Also, there's a lot of laboratory equipments that has been broken. Ranging from test tubes to glass rods. This is also the first time I get to experience the agonizing waiting for that broken material to be replaced or else I won't be able to take the exam. I even have a reminder for that accident!

-This year is the first time I ever attended a debut party, my sister and my friend's.

-This is the first time I've ever watched a Star Wars film. You see there was a smart promo and my mother got free Star Wars: A Force Awaken seats. I watched it with my brother and it was pretty fun. I cried during some scenes(the freaking start where the storm troopers were murdering those species in Jakku). Apart from that, we also have free food and we got awesome seats!

-So yesterday, my bestfriend and I were chatting and she called me her BESTFRIEND. I can't tell you how happy I was! I've always regarded her as my bestfriend but being acknowledged by your bestfriend as such is something new for me. I am so grateful to have met and known her. I truly am thankful for such a great friend.

-Tonight, my sister and I were assigned to grill the fish. It took us hours to finish it and our mother was also questioning us why it was taking so long. And then she told us that since the fish is covered with foil, the fish wouldn't blacken and so we were just left dumbfounded. So all this time, the fish could have been cooked without it even changing its skin color.

These are the few things that happened during this year and I'm looking forward to 2016!

I just got home after the first half of our school's feast day. This is actually the first time where I actually attended the celebration held in the annex campus after the mass. I got to hang out with my friend at their after the mass. The original plan was just to change clothes but we ended up watching television. We then decided to finish the movie and then go back to school but sadly, that didn't happen. There was a blackout and it lasts 2 hours ao we never got to finish the movie (even though we're so close!)

When we got back to school, it was time for lunch. Each program has a booth and different food to offer. I quickly got in line to get ice cream (it was hot okay). We then got in line for the MLS booth, they were preparing a chocolate fountain and I saw a LOT of marshmallows and other desserts that I can't name. I also got a banana and palabok! It was truly a fun experience going from one booth to the other and see the designs of said booth and also their food. After that,t he two of us went to the fourth floor in order to relax and catch some zzz's. The organizers prepared games in order for us to enjoy and it was fun watching people catch an egg.

I had a great time today (though I'm still sleepy for waking up too early just to log-in).

We had our first lab activity in BiocChem and boy was it tiring. Before I went to the 4th floor for our lab, I decided to stop first at the bookstore and buy the lab manual. Luckily, there were only few people so I was able to buy the said manual along with a few of my classmates. After that detour, I knew that I'm going to be a little late for the activity, but when I got there, our teacher was still writing on the board about the steps that we should follow in order to perform the activity at hand.

Of course it took time when the assigned group was handing out the lab equipment's to be used. But what was surprising was that when our teacher told us to wash equipment's before starting the activity. From our experience, we only wash the apparatus when e are done with the experiment. There were also a lot of complications during the activity that delayed our experiment. We decided to split the load in order to finish faster. As my partner and I are about to start, we found that out that there's no more methylene blue. While waiting for it to be replenished, we agreed to move on to the next activity......only to find out that the gelatin is not yet available!

In the end, we managed to finish most of the task but my feet were already hurting so bad due to standing for 3 hours! Adding to that is the fact that I'm hungry ( I'm not the only one tho) around the time that we're done ( around 11:30).

We did the adsorption activity and here's a pic of it:

The first week back to school after sembreak was.....meh. But the weekend definitely made up for it!

As usual, we didn't really have a proper class except for one (curse you BioChem!). The teachers usually just give activities and give grading system and rules in the class. To be honest, I'm looking forward to the BioChem lab cause we didn't get to perform ANY lab activity in Human Anatomy. The moment our teacher said that she's the one going to pick our groups for the lab, I mentally panicked. I don't have a lot of close friends in our class and my luck ran out when I wasn't in their group. But on the plus side, I got grouped with one of the smartest person in our class ( and he's also a DL!!!) And we also get to take turns being a leader of the group per term except for one person who's gonna be the secretary. Did I mention that there's only FOUR people in each group?!

Movie time! )
