After 4 months of studying, getting my ass to work at the school paper and doing left and right favors, I finally survived the first wave of the year. This was the hardest one yet, even if I only had 6 courses it was so hard to balance time for each one. At first I was just taking it easy because in my mind I thought "nah, it's just all about writing, I can do that" but by the time writing activities started in mid July, I was starting to have some vocabulary shortages.
Writing an average of 10 articles with at least 600 words each is kinda stressful, all those topics and the ability of changing writing styles from Creative non-Fiction to Sports Writing is confusing! Sometimes I write like a feature writer when I'm supposedly writing an Opinion and Editorial piece. It like twister fries when I do homeworks everything kinda just tangles up and I get a little crazy thinking how to write this and that and it has to be different from this and that.
But of course I'll be such a sissy for just complaining about my last semester, It was hard and toxic to the brain, I didn't have so much time to be with my friends but hey, there was more fun in spite of all those stressful moments. A lot of whole new experiences that only a view can have. Here are some of the best moments of my first semester. It's based in the overall mood and experience.
|Ranking at top 10 is the midnight food trip with my friends Janine and Thor and my cousin Miguel, all the foods you wanna munched on is there! Only at Banchetto Ortigas.|
|At top 7 is our exposure visit to TV-RADIO station DZRH where we got to experience what was it like to work at a studio and we had a chance to be on air live during the last 10 minutes of the program.|
|And at number 3 is our food review of "Mofara's Halal Food Haus" during our Feature Writing course with Mr. Bana. I've blogged about this experience HERE . I thought I wouldn't like it but now I'm craving to go back there anytime soon for the 3rd time, my friends also got curious about Halal food after I blogged about it.|
