I know you guys are wallowing in your academic shiz, or if you’re not a student, you’re probably doing the same in your existential crises. It’s fine, just go on: You have your own right to be emo.

All of us cannot wait for sembreak, and the one week no-class period was a more or less atypical answer to our chase for rest.

At Wednesday morning last week, I had my photo shoot (Again, no such noun as PICTORIAL!). Fortunately, It wasn’t that obvious though that I was restless the night before— thanks to my Socio10 midterm review plus an inexorable wisdom tooth-ache. No, the pictures weren’t edited: The make-up artist and the photographer did all the wonders. Now please, control yourself from laughing. Finally sing the Vitamin C classic. ( Read more… )
