Things You’ve Realized Now That You’re a Senior

Everyone needs to stop with the ‘It’s your last year. It’ll be a breeze.’ I swear, I’m going to cut the next person who says that. Senior year has its perks, but really being the eldest in the building isn’t much of a whopper. I’ll be validating this with ya’ll with an eye-opening experience on how it feels like to be rubbed raw and graduating, whether you’ve been-there-done-that or you’re currently in my state of bipolarity (If that’s even a word).

State of the Nation 

(Yes, I’m bringing back The Clique)

IN

  • Your teachers don’t require you to stand up to recite anymore or raise your hand. Thank God! I was actually forming an ass with all that standing and sitting.

  • Sometimes you can just leave to go to the restroom. Self Explanatory.

  • Some of your classmates Glowed. Oooh! New(?) Eye Candy!

  • Eating is allowed in some subjects. Self Explanatory.

picture taking

Pardon my editing skills.

  • Using your phone is allowed in some subjects. Leading us to the, “Sir, pwedeng ipicture?”

  • You practically just need to complete your requirements. Its really up to you with what you wanna do in class. Yun lang, if you dont pass you fail.

  • You don’t have to attend all your classes. You’re probably excused 30% of the time, the other 20% will be absents due to personal tamad reasons, and the other 50% of the time you’ll be in class.

  • You’re close to your org now. You’re also probably either part of core or an active member because you’re not the org baby anymore. Time to make inis the YGs with continuous ‘Awwww’s and ‘CUTE’s.

  • You are not fooled by the same expensive ass canteen food that just appears in different colors everyday. You bring cute baon! OMG! I have a friend who gets her mom to do really cute designs for her baon!

  • You kinda know everyone already, so you know where you can get “help” for your homework (wink wink).

OUT

  • Everyone’s favorite word now is defense or presentation.

  • SOME of your batch mates Glowed. Plus, your cougar instincts must be kept in a dark hollow cranny in your mind.

  • You still have to bring some stuff. On my first day of Senior year, I didn’t bring anything and we were required to write so many introduction papers- Like we didn’t know each other already. But yeah, just a tip for my… Er, younger- than-me readers; Bring at least a pen and paper on your first day. At least.

  • You don’t even get what is going on with these online applications. They’re already flying patatas late and then they won’t even accept your village because Google has freaking connection problems.

  • Complete your requirements. Well, thats pretty easy. I THINK NOT. Doesn’t the administration understand how hard it is to balance your school work, with your extra curricular work, with your CET or SAT reviews, while keeping a healthy hygienic body? They’re just trying to kill us.

  • I dare you to try missing a class. Subukan mo lang. Sige, we’ll see if you’ll still keep up to speed.

  • You have no choice, but to make sure you have food for the afternoon every morning. Actually, I love bringing my own food. This shouldn’t even be here.

  • YOU KINDA KNOW EVERYONE ALREADY. Now where’s the thrill in that?

Senior year is hella tough, but it is equally fun. I’ve realized that the more you do, the more you experience. Obviously, you’ll be getting into a ton of rollercoaster rides when you put yourself out there. I’ve decided that in my last year of high school I’d rather have an equal share of laughs and cries, rather than a few fun times without hardships in mind. I know it sounds tiring but to hell with it, right? Its my last year and I’m going to live it to its full extent! That sounded so cliché. Ew. Sorry about that even if it is true.

I actually created my own Senior Year Bucket List. I’m too shy to post it, but if viewers persist I might. I think it’s great to have a bunch of goals of wishes and desires. I have an idea though. I want to make one big Senior Year Bucket List we can all use and edit. I’d have to brush off the HTMLs and Joomlas, but we will soon have to see!

All the love,

Mika Reyes


P.S. None of the pictures are mine! Paper Towns is amazing its advisable for all those graduating this year! 🙂

To the PC after us and the PC after them (I’m not talking about computers)

Dear Future Prom Committee,

First and foremost, good luck! You’ll need it. Okay, not to pressure you or anything but the whole idea of a magical high school night is in your hands- like I said no pressure. Yup, no. I can’t do this anymore. There is a lot of pressure of course. If you read my blog then you would’ve read “The Truth About Prom” wherein I talk about a mythical magical night. I did contradict that statement by saying you can create your own magical night. Guess what, that “creating” I’m talking about would be 40% the promticipants and 60% the prom committee, so you guys are really really important. No matter how small you think your job is, it’ll actually be a tremendous help! No sponsorship no money, no invites no guests, no awards no winners, no decors- well hell who would want a prom with no decors? You know what I’m saying? Yeah, I know it’s a lot of pressure especially because batchmates can be a little-lot-bit judgmental but you were chosen for a reason, so I just know that you will fight for the perfect night till the end no matter how much blood, sweat, and tears will be shed. Yes, maybe a little blood, a lotta sweat (Don’t worry that’s calories too!), and a hella lot of tears! With everything said and done, I would really just wanna say good luck again! That’s all.


Particularly for the Sponsorship/Fundraising Committee…

I may not be the best person to give advice because I spent hours putting my taray voice on for company calls but ended up empty handed, so I’ll just give you tips about things I know!

  1. BE STRONG! A lot of people will think you’re just a whiny high school student asking for adult help like a little baby asking mommy for a bottle, but you’re not! You are a sophisticated business-y person in an adult world.You know what you want and you won’t take any spoon feeding cr*p!
  2. Do not be a tardy pants! Once you are informed of a project, you get on it faster than ASAP. Do not wait for a follow-up because by the time someone follows-up on you and by the time you follow-up that follow-up, you’d already be served up by your head. It would seriously be too late and that happens a lot in the Sponsorship/Fundraising Business!
  3. Do not give up! There were so many times wherein I felt so discouraged because no one was biting my line. I wasn’t getting any sponsor as in zilt! Just keep pushing for what you need and never be afraid to ask help especially from your PA.
  4. Compromise! You have to be a chameleon! Is that the right lizard? Basta, you have to be flexible with your committee mates and your schedule. If you really want it, then you’ll spare a bit of me time for work time!
  5. If all else fails, help the other committees. Make yourself useful; promote when needed, do inventories, pack souvenirs, test souvenirs, make iced tea, convince classmates, convince teachers, convince principals, convince yayas. Just do something. You will always find work to do in PromComm!

The golden rule is to have fun, guys! As long as you “love your job” (*wink* Awards Comm ’16 *wink*) you can get through the over popular prom night!

With all my love, I bid thee goodbye and may good fortunes be brought to your prom night! 

I have so much faith in you, guys! Especially my Fundraising Babies namely; Camilo De Guzman, Kirsten Mayuga, Zoie Garcia, and their abroad head Vicky Manalo! 

Love,

Mika Reyes

Ang Pagibig Parang Jollibee Chicken Joy: Love in a nutshell

Hello, Everyone!

This blog post is for the ones who’ve loved and lost or the ones looking for the ones they would never want to lose.

This blog post is my official love post! We’ll be talking about love- all kinds of it! This time around, we’ll be tackling love in an extra different way because I’ll be explaining love through something we all love, which is food! Aminin mo na! Mahal mo rin ang pagkain! Pa-Ceasar Salad ka pa eh alam mo naman gusto mo ng Chicken Joy!

Welcome to Ang Pagibig Parang Jollibee Chicken Joy: Love in a nutshell


It all starts with where you get yourself into.

Chicken Joy: Pagpasok mo sa Jollibee mago-order ka ng Bucket Meal kung hindi ka nagiisip at basta basta mo nalang ino-order yung meal pwedeng ibigay sayo lahat ng pinaka maliit na part ng chicken (neck, wings, maliit na legs). Kaya dapat piliin mo yung mga nilalagay sa bucket meal mo!

Puso mo: When you’re looking for the one, you can’t place yourself in horrible locations where you’ll find all the wrong people. You have to choose the places you go and the people you meet! Wag mo ibabasta-basta lang ang buhay mo!

Then you have to make the most of what you have.

bucket

Chicken Joy: My God! Marami yan! Sa Chicken Joy marami kang choices na chicken! Tingnan mo naman ang lahat ng pwedeng kainin sa fried chicken. You really have a variety! Some may be unsatisfying and some may be just right, but we’ll get to that later on!

Puso mo: Ano ka, bakla! Marami ring choices sa boylaloos and girlaloos of the world! Minsan hindi mo lang nakikita! Hindi lahat mga gago baka galit ka lang sa ex mo! Hay… may pinaghuhugutan ka lang! Anyways, we have the pakipots, the overachievers, the lambotchingers (malandi), the madaldal, the in-the-closet, the athletes, the kung ano ano at iba pa!

Ang pagpili hindi madali. Hunger Games lang ang peg.

choices

Chicken Joy: Inilagay mo na ang bucket meal mo sa table ninyo! Alam mo na ang susunod. Unahan ang pagkuha sa pinakamasarap na chicken- yung pinakamalaman! Minsan nauunahan ka sa gusto mong thighs or breasts ng chicken, minsan naman nakukuha mo ang gusto mo! Actually, sa diskarte naman yan kung gaano kabilis ang pagkuha mo or how hungry you are! Sometimes you are left with a piece you don’t really like kasi nakuha na yung iba and you just want to eat something. Minsan rin on a diet ka, so hindi ka kakain pero in the long run may abs ka naman!

Puso mo: Don’t you notice na parang all the good people are already taken? It’s like hello wala na bang naiwan sa amin? Pero meron yan promise! Sometimes choosing is hard lang talaga eh! Some people will find you attractive and some won’t. You can never really get what you want, but when you do you’ll be unbelievably satisfied or you get something you don’t really want, but then you realize it made you satisfied naman or in chicken joy terms busog ka na! Other people wait out and in the long run they’ll meet the one! Love is hard! It’s the most unpredictable thing, but like Chicken Joy kung tapos ka na sa isang chicken at hindi ka pa busog, you can always get another piece from the bucket! There are many chickens in the farm! #GawaKoLangYan

Mukhang masama. Bobo! Mukha palang masama kaya wag ka nang gumawa ng excuses!

yung dalawa

Chicken Joy: May mga chicken na talagang masama para sayo! Yung tipong sobrang oily and bad for your health! The ones that go straight to your thighs talaga! The ones na you have to spend 2 hours sa treadmill para matunaw sa tyan mo! Sometimes naman, you don’t know it’s an oily chicken pala! You only realize it’s unhealthy after your first bite! Please lang for your health, don’t eat those chickens! Nakikita mo naman sa labas palang na oozing with oil na si kuya eh!

Puso mo: There are a lot of gagos out there! Sometimes, you can spot them easily kasi their kagaguhan is right in front of you. Sometimes rin, you only notice na theres a lot of baggage once you take your first shot at the person! You gotta love yourself before you love others, so you have to fix up your life before getting into a relationship. It doesn’t mean na all the ones that aren’t for you are necessarily mean. Sometimes, they just don’t get themselves yet or you don’t get yourself yet. Once you know it’s bad for you, get out of it immediately, because like chicken it can give you baggage- baggage in the stomach, thighs, legs and then poof, wala nang bikini body! Mataba ka na teh! Kaya wag kang tanga kasi minsan love is not blind, it’s just tanga (via Ramon Bautista).

There are only 3 types of people you’ll ever date; The Heartbreaker, The Brokenhearted, and The One.

brokenhearted

Hello po,

Ako po si Brokenhearted. Naalala mo pa ba ako? Malamang hindi! Kasi nagmove on ka na sa ibang syota mo! I’m the one you made paasa, the one that you never really liked, the one who was not good enough, the one you suddenly stopped talking to, the one you used, the rebound, the one you just didn’t love enough! That doesn’t mean my love was the right kind of love and you just didn’t see it. It just meant you noticed it wasn’t right before I did. No matter who I am or what I do, whether I’m the boy who was rejected in prom, the girl who kept texting you but you never replied, or the one who you just lost touch with, I thought I loved you and I’m kinda glad it’s over. Kinain mo lang ako at tinapon, pero okay lang yan! Ibibigay naman ako sa mga aso o iluluto ako ulit bilang isang La Paz Batchoy sa karendirya kaya okay lang po ako! May pag-asa pa!

From,

Brokenhearted

heartbreaker

Hoy si Heartbreaker toh!

Ako si Heartbreaker! Ako ang nakipagbreak sayo! I’m the one who crushed your heart with a few words like, “Its not you its me”, “Ayoko na sayo! Panget ka!”, “I think we need time off!”, “PUMUNTA KA NA SA BABAE MO!”, at iba pa. Hindi naman na hindi kita minahal ever at wala akong feelings sayo ever. I’m just not in the same speed as you when it came to love. I didn’t think it was the right time or the right moment or maybe you weren’t the right person and I noticed that kaagad. Sorry ah! Hindi naman na kung ikaw yung nagbreak heartless ka at wala akong naramdam noong brineak kita. I felt bad too. Some might not feel bad kasi well you just weren’t a priority, but believe me some felt bad rin talaga. Hindi madali ang nakikipagbreak. You just know that it’s not worth the time anymore and you both deserve someone better. That’s really the point of why I did it. I can be anyone and you can be me. Sometimes, it just happens. Ako yung kumain at bigla nalang nabusog kaya hindi nalang tinuloy.

From,

Heartbreaker

the one

Hi Beh! This is the one calling! 

Miss na miss na kita! I love you talaga! Pero this love is not a love like A Walk to Remember kasi hindi naman ako namatay and this is not a love like The Notebook kasi hindi naman tayo nagseperate for a long time. This love is just right. It may not be crazy, but I’ll be there for you. You’re not gonna need me because you’re gonna want me. You’ll be an entire whole person who I will just appreciate and compliment. I will never want you to change because I love every single part of you. You will be my best friend and my lover. We’ll joke about the same things, argue on whether Coke is better than Pepsi, and we’ll just be ourselves when we’re together. We may have not met yet and we might not meet tomorrow, but I will be in your future. Just don’t be too scared to love me when I do come tumbling in your life. I love you. I’m in love with you. I will love you for the rest of my life.

Love,

The one

Pagkain at Pagmamahal

stages

Round 1: Hindi mo pa siya kinakain pero nakikita mo na siya! Mukhang masarap! Oh em! Could this be the one?

Round 2: Kinakain mo na siya. Mukhang mabait naman pero lahat naman mabait the first time you meet them. You’re starting to get to know the person all their quirks and traits. Wala pang masamang nangyayari kasi you’ve only just met and everything is still fine. Malaman pa siya kasi! Lahat ng kinakain mo masarap pa!

Round 3: Nauubusan ka na ng meat. You already know the person inside and out, but there are just some things that you know they’re hiding so you try to get the most out of it by eating all the nooks and crannys of the chicken. Nasasarapan ka pa ba once you’ve gotten everything out of the person and once you know every small detail about the person, even the bad things?

Now there are 2 Round 4s. You can either;

Round 4.1: Be contented because your meal is finished. You don’t need another meal because that one was just enough and just right. You’re happy and full. #FullofLove 😉

188

This is an example of a person who found the one. Kitang kita naman na sobrang nasasarapan sa buhay at sa pagkakain! Go lang, Mudra!

or 

Round 4.2: You can always eat another chicken, because there are many chickens in the farm. Hoping to God mabubusog ka na sa isa pang chicken na kakainin mo kasi ayaw mo nang tumaba sa Valentines Day! Hihi

184

Example A ng Round 4.2! Kain lang ng kain kasi pagkain is my love life! Don’t worry masaya namang kumain! Hindi ba?


I hope you like my Valentines Day Special! Pinaghirapan ko yan!

You can ask me for more things you want to know about love or love advice because there were a lot of things I wanted to say, but wasn’t able to.

Happy Valentines Day, Everyone! 

Love,

Mika Reyes
