The captain takes over. I’m all in this Feburary.

This week is a week after a grueling Preliminary Examinations week, results from these exams also came out with it, and it came out somewhat mixed, some exams I got high scores (even coming up on top in one of the exams), while others came out a little lower than expected. Fortunately, I passed in every subject I’m taking this prelims period. Including the two other major tests that we took this week.

But before the results came out, I did took time off from schoolwork for I was exhausted after those exams, where I did my best taking a good time away from the usual student routine by hanging out in different places, either on my own by hanging out at a Starbucks branch nearby or with my family in Greenhills to go to church and buy things. As well as getting myself a new haircut and use wax on my hair. Even to the point I’m not answering questions about schoolwork from my blockmates. Don’t forget the fact I’m filling up my planner with every day that pass by.

January is coming to an end, and February is inching closer with every day and every hour, and it’s going to be one busy month for me, as projects that are needed to be addressed will be done. Including two projects where I’m leading the way. Aside from those schoolwork that will be addressed, I will have a couple of competitions to end the school year. It will also be the last two competitions with the whole team (with two senior teammates before they graduate) which has been a great honor to have been their teammate, and the other one I will compete all by myself. So right now, I’m preparing myself for these competitions I will take on next month as well as savoring the moment of representing the school. Also, I have to think of some things to do when my blockmates and fellow batchmates go to Korea in the middle of the month, while I’m staying here in the Philippines.

I’m thankful for the opportunity I have been given over the past couple of months and I look to take every advantage and opportunity I can grasp on my hands today. I will do all the pursuits I am taking in my life with all my best and I will never stop in making a good name for myself.

Brand new year, life rolls on.

A new year has come upon us, as we are still fresh from the coming of the year 2013, aside from writing my weekly NBA blog on this blog entry, I have not written a blog entry outside of the NBA since the start of the year. So this is my first life story blog entry of the year. It has been long overdue, since I could not buy time to write a blog entry, especially with the busy schedule that I had in the past few weeks. Now that I have the time in the world to write this blog entry, let’s get to it.

As 2013 came along, only a few days remained on the Christmas break, So, I made the most of the short time remaining by doing important things. It was also during this time, when a huge weight on my shoulders was lifted, which was a great feeling for me, because I know I’ll be leaving all the heartbreak of 2012 behind me. Then three days into the new year, it was back to España, and I get to see my blockmates and my friends in school again as well as hang out with them during break time, and sometimes after classes. Of course

For the next few weeks, we had to scramble and work hard to get to all our requirements done both at home, in school and on the field. There were plenty of things to do once we came back in school, that is one of the reasons I have not been writing life story blog entries this year until today. 

Also, I made at a time the most difficult (in a sense horrible) decision I had to make in my entire life. When I decided I will not participate in the international tour we are going to have next month. It would have been my first time going out of the Philippines if I came along, however there were a lot of things I had to consider in that decision and it was not the destination I was aiming for. Fortunately, it had a silver lining, turns out it was a good call on my part, so my international travels that I aim for will have to wait. One day, I’ll be out exploring the world, but definitely, I have no plans of living outside my beloved homeland the Philippines.

Then came the Preliminary Examinations (Prelims) Week which happened this week, my prelims week lasted only three days from Monday until Wednesday, but we took one exam the week before, and there will be 2 more exams next week. Well, it was a mixed exams week, some were easy, others were just right, and of course there were some that were difficult that literally got D-Rose‘d. Also I had to bear the unforgivable mental lapse in some of the tests which cost me some points.

*D-Rose‘d remember when Derrick Rose tore his knee in last year’s NBA Playoffs, well that’s what I felt (not as if I broke my legs in a basketball game) after that test.

Well as a sports fan, it’s been a mixed start to my 2013, the Houston Rockets had a great start to 2013, but they‘re on a losing streak right now. The Texans lost to the Patriots in the NFL Playoffs, while my bet Rain or Shine got swept by Talk ‘n Text in the recently concluded PBA Finals. Well, it’s a long year, and there are plenty of things that will happen this year.

Also, early in the year, I tried having an ask.fm account, ask.fm is a new site where people ask people random questions whether it can be about sports, lovelife, life stories and everything else, at first it was good to have that account, however when the questions people wrote on my profile got more foul, I had to close my account forever. As the saying goes “Haters gonna hate.” and this has no connection with either Heat forward LeBron James nor singer/rapper Drake.

*Haters gonna hate. –A colloquial saying. It means that people who don’t like you will always find a reason to dislike you, no matter how stupid that reason may be. (from UrbanDictionary.com)

As my planner for 2013, starts to fill up with stories I have so far over the course the year. Expect, that 2013 will be a great journey worth taking, it’s still early into the new year, and the journey rolls on.
