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)


  • 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).


  • 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! 🙂

Catching in the Zobel Fair


VM Week has just ended and I must say it has been a really great fair for me. I was a catcher, an Interbatch Cheerdancer, and a member of the Media Team for Zoob. I’ve had a lot of insights during the fair about catching, since it’s my first time to be a catcher. Here are my thoughts on the allegedly child terrorizing activity in the fair.
First things first (I’m the real-est!- Okay, old joke), I don’t like catching kids. I wouldn’t spend my God-given precious time trying to snag away little monsters who taunt me every now and then. They’d be all like, “You can’t catch me! You can’t catch me!” Well. I’d hate to break it to you darling, but I DON’T WANT TO. 
Here is an actual conversation with a little monster:
I was talking to a friend about catching and then suddenly out of nowhere…
LittleM: Don’t even think about catching me. I swear, if you even touch me something ba will happen to you.
Me: What will happen?
LittleM: It’s so bad I can’t even say it.
So I touched him…
This was coming from a small boy.
Secondly, It is almost impossible to catch freely; Unless, it is dance craze time. Every single one of them either has a green ribbon, a sky blue ribbon, a white ribbon, a gold ribbon, a red ribbon, or even a freaking drawn on ribbon. You know who you are. It’s been a whoops-sorry-didn’t-see-that-there moment almost every after 3 seconds. Not kidding.
Thirdly, where did all the cute catches go– more like where did all the Freshmen, the Sophomores, the Juniors, and the Seniors go? Were they hiding? Were they cutting? Were they all absent? Were they having an underground party I had no idea about- well would I even go if I knew about it? Wow mga addik. Tugs tugan kahit umaga pa!
Fourthly, I don’t get why they want to get caught. I wanted to get caught before because I like meeting new people and doing the dare. If you think about it, doing the dare is the only free fun thing you can do in fair so why not, right? But these kids don’t wanna do the dare, don’t even communicate with the catchers, and just bail and go. I do not see the logic in that. They don’t even run when you catch them, so it can’t be for the thrill of being caught. They’re just weird. Just simply weird.
Fifthly, I still wanna be caught even if I’m a catcher. HAHA. Ironic right, but yeah. Apparently, when you’re a catcher automatically no one wants to catch you. I had to do this segment for Zoob wherein I had to be caught in each booth, but that didn’t go so well. I had to shout. I was literally telling people to catch me. I felt like a little monster.
Anyways, I think that’s it. I don’t really wanna say more because you might get bored. Hope you guys had fun in fair! I think this would be helpful if you’re planning to be a catcher or was a catcher(?)
Love Love Love,

Zobel Secret Menu: #5 UZBS (Ultimate Zobel Burger Steak)

zobel secret menu

Hello everyone!

I wasn’t able to write in so long- again. I’m really bad at being a blogger. I never really write at an average rate and I don’t update my blog. Oh well, I’ll just share when I want to share. Today’s ZSM is the UZBS or the Ultimate Zobel Burger Steak, inspired by the Jollibee UBS. It sounds a bit ordinary, like it wasn’t well thought of but it is! UZBS; U(You)-Zee(“The” in an Italian accent)-BeeSss(Best)- YOU THE BEST! Because this recipe really is the best!


Buy a burger steak with rice and a tray of french fries.


Place the fries on top of the Burger Steak.


Voila! You have a UZBS! It’s actually really really easy.


Hint: Dont stop there! Keep adding in more fries as you eat your UZBS for a tastier lunch!

Zobel Secret Menu: #4 Sundae Funday

zobel secret menu

Hi guys,

I’ve been MIA from the blogging world for 2 weeks. I apologize for my absence and for the heart stopping anticipation of the next secret menu. Can you believe it? It’s only the fourth secret menu and I haven’t really dedicated myself to the campaign. Talk about irresponsibility. Sorry! Anyways, here is the oodnes to goodness, tummy pleasuring Sundae Funday;



All you need is 3 packs of chocnut, 3 scoops of ice cream in a cup, and a chocolate fudge brownie.


Place the fudge brownie right on top of the ice cream scoops.


While the Chocnut is still in the wrapper, crush it with the palm of your hand, open up the wraps, and place it on top of the concoction! Voila! You have made a Sundae Funday! Enjoy!

3 Scoops of Ice Cream in a Cup (P75)


Fudge Brownie (P25)


3 pieces of Chocnut (P5)

= 105 pesos

I suggest that you share this meal with a friend. It’s a bit expensive, but totally cute if you share! 

With much love- even if I was MIA for 2 weeks,

Mika Reyes

A Video About Road Safety

so you wanna 2


 Double meaning yan, girlaloos!

Hey guys,

I recently made a video about Road Safety for my Physics Project and it was a really fun shoot! I love my teammates and I love how well we go together in a project. Here is the video, posted in YouTube; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I04KHqpq1xM


I’ll be showing you the crew behind the scenes.

so you wanna


Left to Right: Gab Mansueto, Marielle Livelo, Rian Lim, and Yuji Iizuka. Behind the Camera: Mika Reyes


This is a funny story. We didn’t have a car, so we were pretending that a random car was ours. All Yuji had to do was pretend to put the keys in and open the car door, without really opening it, just pulling the handle. But the car door opened and there was a driver inside. Yuji closed the door right away and then opened it again to apologize. Awks.


This is the other group filming. Abbey Road lang ang peg.


In the Principal’s Office. Thanks for letting us use your lobby, Bro Bernie!



Rian wanted to be part of the picture, so…


Hope we can do more projects together! This post is for you guys (Marielle, Yuji, Gab, and Rian)!
