Day 29: 5 Weird Things that I Like

I'm not really good at recalling those weird things that I once liked or I still like now and am not aware of it, but here it goes:
  1. Men's spiky hairstyle - I'm not sure if this is weird for some or not, but I think it's weird because it really transforms men's appearance, which creeps me out sometimes and likes it at the same time. Get it? hahaha. And coincidentally, this has become a trend for this year, and I recalled one of my classmates started this whole thing. o_O
  2. French Fries dipped on sundae - Trust me, this is delicious. hahaha! I did this with McDonalds. :p
  3. Superstitions - Well, I don't know for sure if this is classified under weird things or creepy things but yeah, I like reading superstitions because they are just so fascinating and would really get me wondering about what I had been doing all my life. LOL
  4. The smell of citrus fruit - For some this isn't weird at all, right? I really love the smell of citrus fruit, like in colognes, perfumes, and other scented stuff, and if only I won't get colds for smelling too much of it, I would smell it all day. hahaha
  5. Shampoos that smell like candy - Oh yes, I like it when my hair smells sweet. xD I have a shampoo that smells like candy, and I really would love the scent to stay on my hair. :)) Sorry if this isn't weird enough for you. haha!

Till here :*

Day 28: Somewhere I'd Like to Move to or Visit

I'm not usually fond of wishing I could go somewhere because home is such a great place to be in, and I only love to go to some beach resorts and adventure parks if I must name places I'd want to go to. But if I must name a specific place, I wanna go to Dahilayan Adventure Park. xD

From the entrance, you already know you're in it for some sight-seeing and adventure.

I'm afraid I can't post more pictures here because I haven't actually been here. -_- And I find it uncomfortable getting tourist pictures from others, so yeah. Search Google to find more about this amazing place that I'd want to go to. :)))

Till here :*

Have you been to Dahilayan Adventure Park? :D Tell me about it.


Day 27: A Quote I Try to Live by

I don't usually live by a quote, so before writing this blog post, I did "extensive research" on what quote I should present to you. xD After minutes of searching, tan ta raran ~ here's the quote :

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” 

Well, I live by this quote because everytime I think about problems and obstacles in my life, I prevent myself from attempting to end it by thinking that it must go on. :) And besides, I have a lot of blessings, why would I just let it go to waste by attempting suicide?

Maybe I'm understanding this quote a little differently, but at least, did I get the thought?

Till here :* Sorry for giving you only a small explanation.

Day 25: Something I'm Currently Worrying About

First of all I would like to inform you that I will be writing 5 posts today to cope up with my 30-day challenge because I'm planning to finish everything before May ends. Can you cope up with reading everything on this day too?

So, moving on, that "something" I'm currently worrying about would be what college would bring me. I guess all of you know that I'm such a worry-wart. hahaha. So yeah, I always worry about some near happenings in my life. I'm afraid to be too forgetful with things, to fail a subject, to not be on the honors' list (I need to be in it to receive full scholarship), and that maybe my classmates would be too smart for me. :o Maybe most of my classmates would be Valedictorians and Salutatorians *gasps*! These are just some things that get me paranoid when I'll be on a next stage in school.

Well, that's it! I still need to do other challenges. haha

Till here :*

Day 24: 5 Words/Phrases that make me Laugh

This challenge is going to be very hard for me because I don't usually laugh at words and phrases, I laugh at them along with a meme or a picture. -_- Could I just show 9gag posts here? LOL. Besides, there wouldn't be anyone grading me around here or pointing out my mistake or alternative way unless he/she is too much of a perfectionist, so yeah. xD

Day 22: My Academics

If you're an avid reader of my blog, you would surely know how my performance is when it comes to academics, well, at least in high school since it's when I began sharing a lot of stuff here on this blog. :) To give you a recap, here's one post I shared to you about something I'm proud of (which is my academic performance): CLICK! (My certificates and medals are there) Then here are my report cards from 1st Year to 4th Year. I would be too showy if I show you my elementary report cards so yeah, I would just show you my high school report cards. LOL. You may click the images for a bigger view. :D (Facebook is such a handy tool to save a lot of pictures, and it doesn't go full, or at least not for me. haha. I got these from my profile by the way, downloaded them, and re-uploaded them here.)

As you can see, I never had a grade below 90 before, or at least I don't remember. hahah. If I do get a grade below 90, I would surely freak out. :o That's what I'm afraid of when I'll be in college. xD I will study my a** off soon.

Anyway, with these grades, I can say I've done pretty well in academics. But I know I'm not the best student around. :)) My grades had always been like this since Kindergarten. I am also very devoted to my studies because I know I can get rewards from it, and that I'm glad God gave me wisdom and knowledge to understand my everyday lessons well, and that my family has always supported me, and my teachers as well. :D

Till here :*

Day 21: How I Hope My Future Will be Like

Well, I'm the kind of girl who has a lot of big ambitions. :))) So big that I would do anything to make them a success, which explains why I'm over-competitive when it comes to academics and extracurricular activities in school, and how hopeful I am that my personality would be more pleasing.

So yeah, I will proceed to telling about how I'd want my future to be.

Soon, my name will be Atty. Vanesa D. Salcedo, CPA. Yes, I will be a CPA Lawyer soon, but I don't know if I could change my mind. But if the CPA Lawyer occupation would continue to convince me that I will have a big salary soon, I will stick to that ambition. ;) I wanted to be a lawyer in the first place because I knew that I would have high authority among people, just like my father. I've been aiming to be a lawyer ever since I started school. LOL. But at some point between my 3rd Year High School and 4th Year High School years, since I was very addicted to the internet, I wanted to be an Information Technologist, or whatever people call the occupation after you've studied the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology course. Then I also wanted to be a Multimedia Artist. xD But then I realized that maybe the ambitions that have stayed long with me may be the ones that I need to pursue, so I decided I should be a lawyer instead, and besides, I don't know if ever I could be one of the best in dealing with technology. Then because Law doesn't have a Bachelor degree, I opted for Accountancy since I believe I'm good in Math and I'd love to analyze stuff.

HAHA, anyway, sorry I got carried away. xDD The next thing I want in the future would be having a big mansion with a pool, just like this:

Credits to the rightful owner

I would also want a cool vehicle with that. haha

Credits to the rightful owner

.. then a fabulous life. :D hahaha

I also wanted to have my own boutique or something. LOL. xD I would also want to earn a lot of money, I mean A LOT of them, too much for me that I have to give some to charity. :)) Yes, I want to be a Philanthropist soon, so that I could help the less fortunate.

I want to be very successful, but not up to the point that I would end up being sad for myself for not living my life to the fullest. Along with my soon-to-be success, I would also want myself to live and enjoy life with no regrets, and hopefully live a long and righteous life.

If I must have a family, I would want a small one, with only one child, but that doesn't mean I would spoil her/him. But I don't know. LOL. I want a man who looks like a prince and would have a pleasing personality. In other words, I want a man that I rightfully deserve. If given the chance to have a kind maid to help out at home, I would take that opportunity in the future as well.

So, my future would be more like focusing on my career first then family matters would come somewhere when I'm ready.

In general, all I want in life would be success, fulfilled goals, and a life worth living.

Till here :*

She's not the American Idol, she's the WORLD Idol! :D But in order not to be called "bitter" on this, I would just like to say congratulations to Phillip Phillips for winning the title. :)))) Jessica Sanchez, you'll have an amazing career ahead of you! ^^, I could download a lot of songs from your album soon. hahah

Here's an epic performance from Jessica Sanchez and Jennifer Holliday:

So yeah, despite the disappointment I felt about Jessica Sanchez not winning the title, I still enjoyed the performances in the finale. :D Rihanna was there! LOL. I'm a big fan of her, and many other singers too. xD

Till here :*

Day 19: 5 Items I Lust After

So yeah, everyday I lust after a lot of fashionable items that could never be mine .. oops, well, at least not today. xD Here's my top 5 though :)


1. PUMPS/HIGH HEELED SHOES - Yes, those gorgeous heels that would catch my eye. They've been one of my must-haves ever since I, well, became interested in fashion. :)) Too bad I can't walk in these shoes though, but someday, I'll be able to practice walking in these and wear it in public. haha

Google Images

2. ROLLED-HEM DENIM SHORTS - This is indeed a must-have for me, now that it's on trend. Wherever you glance at the mall or somewhere else, there would always be girls who would wear these shorts, which look kinda cute. Well, I wasn't a fan of shorts until it got on trend, so yeah, I must go with the flow. LOL
3. CONVERSE SHOES - I'd love to have one of these shoes for casual wear! I can't go around wearing rubber shoes all the time in public since it simply wouldn't go with what I usually wear and with what my personality is, and I only wear them during PE class so yeah. xD I gotta have those shoes. I've had this long ago though, but I picked the wrong style that wasn't easy to wear for me.

Google Images

4. ANIMAL-PRINT BANGLES (or whatever you call it. LOL) - Oh yes, I'd really love to have one of these simply because it would look so cool if I wear it. waaaah. Enough said, I'm just lustful for this item. hahaha

5. CARDIGAN and BLACK TOP - These two items really do look good together when worn, so yeah, that's why I'm lusting over this wardrobe combo. xD

These are just some of the items that I lust after everytime I'm in the mood for fashion finds. I don't usually have these items because I'm not aiming to be a model, but since I'm a typical girl, I would surely be one of the other girls who also lust after these kinds of things. :D

Till here :* Maybe I could post 3 blog posts tomorrow to cope up with my 30-day challenge.

Day 18: A Problem That I Have Had

Before proceeding to this challenge, I would like to inform you that I will be doing challenges of day 16, 17, and 18 (Yes, this is the last for this day) today so that I could keep up with my 30-day Challenge. I know I am indeed very late with this because I have been busy with other things, and I'm sorry for that.

Well, it's pretty hard to think of a problem since I usually just face and forget them whenever I encounter them. But one problem that I could tell you about would be my personality that isn't really the best and the fact that it can be hard to change sometimes.

So yes, that has been my problem ever since, and I'm trying to change that for the better little by little because I don't want anyone to hate me for it and I also don't want to get in trouble for it.

Even though it's pretty hard, I hope I won't be too late in changing myself for the better. :))

Till here :*

Day 17: Something That I'm Proud Of

That "something" I'm proud of would be the fact that I've been consistently an honor student ever since Kindergarten, and I have pictures to prove you that. xD

This is me when I was Grade 1, and that's pretty much the same certificate I got when I was in Kinder 1 and Grade 2.

Then all my other elementary pictures are on a photo album. :))

Here are pictures of my medals and certificates that were saved on my hard drive.

1st Year :)

2nd year :)

3rd Year :) (I wonder what happened to the picture of this medal and the certificate with it o.O)

4th Year :)

So as you can see, I've studied very hard literally all my life since I was introduced to that place called "school". xD It's like determination has already been with me ever since so that I could reach this high everytime. :))) I'm one of the fortunate students who get to have achievements like these, and that's indeed something to be proud of, right? :D Of course, I don't credit these achievements all to myself, but also to God, to my family members who had been my first teachers, and to the teachers that taught me a lot in school.

Till here :*

Day 16: Something I Always Think "What if" About

Well, there are a lot of "What ifs" I think about, considering the fact that I often wonder about a lot of things, like for example, what if the future I'd get soon wouldn't be what I expected, regardless of it being good or bad, or what if something bad happens to me, or then again, what if I won't have any much significant meaning in my life?

But there's a "What if" that bothers me most every time.

Here's a song that comes to mind whenever I read or hear "What if". LOL

So that's the whole thing I've been trying to tell you, as what you can hear from the lyrics or what you can see from the video. That one "What if" that bothers me most would be about the future. Why? Because we spend our whole time planning for it, but we'll really never know what destiny would bring us. 

This always gets me thinking a lot of what ifs relating to it like, what if my future wouldn't be as great as what I've thought it would be? What if I mess up at some point that would destroy it or something? What if something even better, or even worse, comes? What if that someone I always dream about at night is really the one for me or something? What if college would be way too much harder than high school? What if I can't carry on studying Accountancy? What if I have to shift to some other course, wherein which that would be one of the worst that could happen next to failing a subject? What if?! 

These "What ifs" get me paranoid all the time, and I keep hoping that nothing really bad would happen soon. Looks like all I can do now is to study very hard and listen to my parents and other trusted adults, then do my best not to mess up at some point like doing my best not to fall too hard for a person and end up in a relationship with him or something. That's the only potential future-destroyer I know for now (engaging in a relationship while still studying), and also being lazy and not striving hard for attained goals. So, yeah.

Till here :*

Day 15: My Zodiac/Horoscope and if I Think it Fits my Personality

Before I would introduce you to my Zodiac sign, I would like to apologize for not updating my blog yesterday because I was too obsessed with Adam Lambert's music. HAHA. So yeah, I will just share to you about that in another blog post since this post is just for my 15th challenge of my 30-day challenge. :))

So, my Zodiac sign is Virgo, and here are the traits of a person having that Zodiac sign according to Buzzle:

Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It owns the period between August 23 to September 22, and is pictorially depicted as a young woman. In astrology, Virgo is considered a "feminine", negative (introvert) sign. It is an earth sign and is traditionally ruled by the planet Mercury. While it is possible to find two people born under this sigh with opposing characteristics, often these differences are the same value manifested in different ways. However, you will almost always find in the person trademark Virgo qualities of cleanliness, fastidiousness, and attention to detail. Some good Virgo traits are that they are very trustworthy, and a friendship with them is genuine and lasting. While they may not be romantic, they are considerate and committed.

Characteristics and Personality

Perfectionism: The most commonly known Virgo trait is that of perfectionism. This can be both an asset and a fault, for while they may perform tasks with great attention to detail, they can also be unable to get a 'not so perfect' job done quickly. They can also expect the same high standard of work from others, that they set for themselves. As they are sticklers for detail, they are also well-organized, and you will seldom find a Virgo who does not make lists. They are also very hardworking.
-- This is really true! I am indeed a perfectionist and I always seem to make lists especially when I need to remember something, just like in school. You have no idea how my notebooks have so much lists and notes in them. LOL. And whenever I take notes, I take down every detail of what my teacher says and what he or she writes on the board. xD Then when in comes to grades, grades that are not even close to perfection would disappoint me really bad, I mean, really bad. hahah. It's like I always push myself hard on achieving perfection and all. :)

Practical: Virgos are very practical and rational. They are always more likely to take decisions with their heads than with their hearts. Most often, being practical mean not being romantic, which is a grouse of most people involved with Virgos. This also means they have little patience for those who lack common sense, or those who are easily influenced by popular opinions.
-- Yeah, this is pretty much true because I don't really hear my heart's opinion. HAHA. My mind's noisier. xD And yes, I do have little patience on people who lack common sense, but I'm not that impatient when it comes to people who are easily influenced by popular opinions because even I myself is one of them.

Cautious: One of the Virgo character traits is the tendency to veer more toward caution. Don't expect a Virgo to take a risky or rash decision, be it in financial aspects, or in their personal or professional lives. An extension of being practical and rational, you will always find a Virgo weighing the pros and cons (maybe even making a list) before making a decision. They are also more likely to be conservative in all matters of life, though once convinced on a controversial school of though, will stick to their guns.
-- Yes, this is pretty much true too. This kinda explains why I carefully choose the clothes I buy for example, and that in some situations or things that could possibly be done, I know for sure what the pros and cons are for them.

Shy: Many Virgos are introverts and prefer to keep to themselves. However, the situation equally often is that it they fail to find suitable company, they would rather keep to themselves than make small talk.
-- This is so true .. sometimes. xD With the social networking sites around, I usually share what's going on with me, and then I sometimes get in trouble with it. So yeah, being like that doesn't really work for me, and that trait of a Virgo should really be followed by me. haha. I am naturally an introvert though, and I am just influenced by the social networking sites, that's why I like expressing myself more.

Calm: Virgos always appear very calm and in control of their emotions. Nervousness or exuberant outbursts of emotion are not usually associated with Virgos. However, this outward calm is not always a reflection on their internal state of mind, as they are known worriers. They are known to spend much mental energy on worrying about anything and everything, and can easily over analyze a situation because of the number of times they turn it over in their heads. 
-- HAHA! Yeah, this is so true because indeed, I am a worrier and that I usually worry about anything and everything that comes to me, especially again in school. Well, one example would be that for the whole week before the final honors' list would be deliberated, I literally spent my whole time and mental energy worrying and praying for the honor rank I've wanted, and I've also over analyzed some things, that's why I ended up blaming some people (ouch! But he's worth blaming anyway. LOLjk) and that I cried, just when I can't take all these anymore. And oh, I'm not that sure if I do appear calm or not. o_O Hmm, maybe I do, because I usually need to tell people what I'm going through since it seems like they can't see it in me. LOL

Critical: Another quality that stems from being perfectionists, is being highly critical. They aren't tolerant of faults in others. However, this judgment is usually also directed towards themselves. This quality may make it difficult for them to work with others, as they may constantly question (or not accept) the plan or decision of other people.
-- Well, I am critical, but not up to the point that I can't tolerate faults in others, not unless it's a big fault. xD But I can really agree that I can't tolerate my own faults and I even criticize myself sometimes. And I don't usually question other people's plan since I am open to other's opinions, then I even would like to encourage them to express their ideas. But it seems like they do not see that in me because whenever I ask for their opinions, they prefer having my idea implemented. hahah. Maybe they do know what most Virgos are. :o

Possibly one of the most annoying Virgo traits is their level of cleanliness they maintain and require. While they don't wear their hearts on their sleeves or fall in love easily, once in relationships, they are loyal and devoted. A good way to describe Virgos is 'still waters that run deep'.
-- Hmm, I'm not that much of a neat-freak though, but I am in some cases. xD And indeed, I can be loyal and devoted when it comes to relationships, or I have no idea because I haven't been in one. LOL. But yes, if I were to be in a relationship that I'd love to be in, I would of course be loyal and devoted. :))

As you can see, I agree with all these traits, therefore I think it really does fit with my personality. :D
