C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S Wishlist ! :)

Hello there everyone! Long time no update! So, how are you all doing? Me, I'm doing fine! Christmas is fast approaching, so, yeah! I'm so happy and excited! I'm going to show you my Christmas Wishlist in this post.

..but before that, let me tell you about last December 4, 2010.


This was a very, very special and memorable day, being able to hear inspirational and motivational messages from our very own Mr. Francis J. Kong!

I got this info from http://franciskong.com/about/ -- The About page of Francis Kong's blog.

You know, I really had so much fun listening to Francis Kong, and at the same time, I also learned a lot. I remember one thing I heard from him: the 7 Bs, which means, Books Before Boys Because Boys Bring Babies. Cool, eh? :)

But, .. wait! You might be asking why I was able to be there listening to Francis Kong. Top 12 student government officers were actually invited to be there to witness and listen to Francis Kong's seminar, "Becoming a Person of Excellence". I am the assistant secretary of our Student Body Organization, so, yeah, I'm in the 4th position, and .. I was qualified! :D This is why it is an honor, and a privilege, for me to be one of the SBO officers; if it weren't for this, I wouldn't be able to see Francis Kong in person and hear him live, or I also wouldn't be able to develop my leadership skills [as if I do have some . xD] ! So, to those schoolmates of mine who voted for me, and to the people who prayed for me to win the elections, THANK YOU so much! But first of all, I would like to thank God for answering my prayers back then! I would also like to thank all the people involved in letting me win! :)

So, moving on to my Christmas Wishlist!

A new hair! GRANTED!! :))Yaaaaaaayyyy!! I finally got my hair straightened and layered, as what is seen on the picture! It was quite unexpected! We went to the parlor just to get a haircut, but then the beauticians[?] said that my hair needed to be relaxed so that it would look great on layers, so, yeah! They did that then, viola! A new, fantastic, hairstyle!




Kodak EasyShare M380
OMG! This is a must-have for me! Although this camera's pretty simple, I still want neeeeeeed to have this! Especially that my 2 cameras I have here don't work properly anymore like they used to before. :'( But, too bad, I guess my parents won't buy me this just yet. Actually, one camera of mine doesn't work anymore, and the other still works but it takes up too much battery power, I mean, it gets lowbat easily. We consulted a camera store a while ago, then they told us that the problem really was the battery charger, that it doesn't charge well anymore. So, we only had to buy a new battery charger, not a camera, but still, I need this new digital camera, especially that we have this project in PEHM that we need to pass 20 breath-taking, or simply pleasing-to-see photos of nature in our school, this coming exam days. And, I also need an extra camera, just in case 2 members of the family will use digital cameras at the same time.



An HP laptop. [or any other laptop would do.]

Well, I guess during these days, I really my own laptop na. A laptop I could bring to school for projects and research work, or simply for entertainment. For sure, I wouldn't get this on Christmas too, but my parents said that this would be my Congratulatory gift for being, and going to be, an honor student, this March, during the Recognition Day. I am so excited for this! I guess I should really work hard to still be a top honor student!


And speaking of being an honor student, here's my report card for the 2nd Grading:


Some increased, some decreased, I still wasn't the top first honor overall in our batch, I got 96.92% this time as my average, my rival's average is 97.41%, I saw that we now have little gap now in our averages, so, yeah, I didn't really feel that bad unlike before! :) At least, my average increased bigtime! From 95.95% to 96.92%~! Too bad it didn't reach 97, but it's okay, I still got a long way to go! 3rd and 4th Grading, here I come, determined to finish you both successfully! I just hope that in the end, I'd win! >:)

Moving on to what happened recently..

Yesterday, we had our shooting for our Filipino film on some chapters of Noli Me Tangere! At last! We're finally done with the drama! What's missing now are the advertisments, pictorials, and the editing! Whew~! It was so tiring, but fun! I'm glad my group members cooperated. If it weren't for their cooperation, our film wouldn't be a success!

If you'd want to ask where we did our shooting, we had it at our house, and somewhere also near our place. It was so tiring walking back and forth, but it's worth it! :)

Today, we had Christmas shopping! We bought blouses, t-shirts, and gifts for our manito and manita! Well, I felt even more tired from this, but still, like yesterday, it was worth it. I love what we bought! I'm so excited to wear one of them this Christmas Party! The theme by the way is, "Christmas in Candyland". What a colorful theme, if you could imagine, eh? I just hope this party would be really fun, and successful! :D

Actually, because of these two tiresome weekends, I felt sleepy just 2 hours before, but still, I didn't sleep just yet. Haha! :D

Another thing, I made a new blog [again] for my school works and art works. Wanna visit it? Just click here.

So, that's it for now! Thanks for reading and viewing!

Images are from Google Image Search by the way! :)
