Well, I wasn’t planning on flooding your dashboard with my face but this were few of the photos taken recently from my phone.
1. Watching sunset on our rooftop
2. Bumming around in my room in Tarlac, listening to some indie music
3. Reading Damned by Chuck Palahniuk (book borrowed from Vika)
4. Selfie 1 in front of our house
5. Selfie 2 in front of our house (current facebook dp)
6. I also thought I said I would live a healthy lifestyle but who cares I’m having movie marathons, no time for decent dinner
7. Messy pixie hair that has grown out of shape already. I cut it last Saturday and recolored it. I actually miss it’s entropy
I have been through my first year in med school at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila College of Medicine but only the studying ends because we have a one and a half month of community service. (Well, that’s for scholars like me).
We were grouped in to 4 and were assigned one barangay each. Fortunately, Intramuros is just arround and we don’t have to commute that far to go to the community.
(Here’s our group! Find me! Note to self, small girls shouldn’t go in the middle.)
We visited the barangay and interviewed them to ask for problems they want us to address in our program making. It was a hot afternoon but it was a good long walk from PLM because we had stopovers for trying out food and drinks around (i.e. special halo-halo).
I hope the rest of the summer goes well and may we serve our community to the best of our abilities.

I’ve tried to maintain this blog while trying to juggle med school and my social life and my arts but obviously, I failed. Sorry for posting just my instagram feeds, at least they (sort of) tell you what’s happening in my life.
Yesterday, I took my last exam in first year. I passed my paper before it was time. I went home immediately, had dinner with R, bought popcorn, watched the series I’ve missed and slept. I just woke up and I realized it was almost a year ago when I had 18 hours of sleep! That’s 3/4 of a day. It was a well deserved, peaceful sleep.
It’s surreal. I can’t actually believe that I had survived it. I am excited to bein second year but more than that, I cannot wait to see my family, have brunch in Tarlac while I read Stephen King, run and have tennis with my dad, meet and catch up with friends, and finally, have some time for myself.
Like what Doc E told us, "To those who will eventually pass, get a life."
