   HEY GUYS! So . . . I got good news and. . . .bad news . . . :icontwitchplz:
  Let's go first to the GOOD NEWS
  • The good news is, is that I didn't flunk my exams in the 2nd day! I am a dummy! HURRAY!  
  • Another good news is, our advertisement in our Arts class was a HUGE SUCCESS! 
  • And lastly, *coughs*, I have an announcement to make. . . I'm going to perform back on STAGE! Love It's been how many months. I took a rest off on my career but just for one time. La la la la
  • And oh, my pneumonia is slowly gone! I'll be back to normal soon! . . . as long as the doctors can fix this weird thing in my 
  Now . . . here's the BAD NEWS
  • My sister didn't pass the License Exam for Civil Engineers. After all the days of prayer, she failed the exams. She began to compare herself with her classmates who passed the exams. I wanted to talk to my sister, but eh, they don't see my mind as something mature enough. Sure, it's harsh but I don't care, a sibling is sibling.

Red Rose   "Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness." Red Rose

Oprah Winfrey

    Rose Red Bullet - F2U! Sis, this is a message for you. Aight? Look, I know you're hurt because of failing the license exams, and your classmates passed the exam while you thought, "Why didn't I pass?". All I can say is, DON'T GIVE UP and DON'T CRY. Maybe it's not your time, yet. Never cry about failing, it's only something natural, that's how life really works in the first place. You don't succeed all the time, there are times when things are just really hard and you just feel like losing hope. No, that's part of it. Life isn't always as it seems. Failing is what makes us successful, it what makes us learn and experience more. Without failing, we wouldn't know the true value of success. I even fail a lot of times, well, yeah I do regret it, yeah it hurts, I feel ya...I FEEL YA. Life goes on as we speak, but I know, you are that person who is determined to fulfill your dreams. You are that person who NEVER GIVES UP! You've been my sibling for as long as I know and I know that you are willing to sacrifice yourself just for the sake of the family and for others. Sis, I'm proud of you, no matter how much you fail. You've already done so much for me and for the family, in fact, you are the first person to ever graduate in our family. Just now, that there will always be a NEXT TIME. Maybe not today, but soon, sis. You will finally feel that feeling of success, you're not alone. I'm here, brother's here, mom and dad are here with you. We're here for you. And just remember, that : You may not like me in person, but to be honest, I didn't like you, but I loved you the most. I love you sis. :heart: rvmp Remember that. 
    HEY GUYS! :wave: So yeah...I actually did quite well on the 2nd day . . .(note the quite) and well, the fact that I still flunked my Math made me think like a strategy . . . 

    My old Strategy: 

  • Study only when exams are coming, then get distracted from social media to forget shit, just have fun, play video games and chill on weekdays! And when quizzes come up, just study for a bit and you'll forget everything you've learned! :dummy:

     My new Strategy:

  • You can just read and read, make things funnier to make things easier to learn. If you're confused, try to study it more and once exams are coming, you can review all the shit no problemo. :thumbsup:
    But yeah, that`s gonna WHACK my poor brain for sure. :saddummy:
     Anywho, the Second Day exams were pretty FREAKIN`E.Z :icondabplz:
    But yeah, some were pretty complicated but it worked out fine. . . .unlike MATH. . . :iconlazepoolplz:
    Let`s forget about Math . . .I don`t wanna talk about `IT`. Sooo today, after the exams, I had a bacon sandwich with a Malapagos Mousse to CELEBRATE my success (not really much of a success but whatever). And when I went home, I might need to remind this to myself . . . quick note list. . . . :iconwritingplz:

:iconbummyplz: STEPHY-CHAN`s To-Do-List! :iconbummyplz:  

  1. Bring TWO plastic bags for tomorrow.
  2. Do some RESEARCH about Honest Abe. (Abraham Lincoln) [For research paper]
  3. Do my ENERGIZER for the school campaign this Nov. 24 (I'm not ready)
  4. BUY a toy for the children of Charity :heart:
  5. Do my Eco-Conversion Diary 
  6. Make my CLF application for today and then tomorrow.
  7. WATCH more Vanossgaming and "Whose Line Is it Anyway?"
  8. FINISH this journal. :iconcheckplz:
  9.  . . . .Sneak in to do something . . . . YANTS. Welp.
    And that's a wrap! Hope you guys enjoy the journal! So I might be writing down journals daily or not daily, when I'm FREE. :D

    So as always. . . 

Stephy <3
    ALRIGHT! Guys, I need you to do some weird reading shit. But first...
  • This story is what really happened to me in my life. It happened a few months ago and I just wanted to know if people have other different responses to the same situation.
  • I would gladly see different opinions from other people, you can judge me on this one. 
  • This might be real weird for a 16 year old. YOU. HAVE. BEEN. WARNED.
    A TRUE STORY - At the month of September going towards October, 2017.

    During break time, I walk outside of the classroom to meet my friends, who are in other classrooms. I met my friends, and we began to do a lot for shits and giggles that our group really love to do. Of course, talking, teasing, high-5-ving and especially helping one another, until, a certain group of bitches and fuckboys come in the way. A few of them teased others, some of them were talking in a snobby way, all about how they wanted to look skinny, about how wearing make-up and lewd :iconshitplz: , you get my point.
    At the time when I was having so much fun, a bitch began to walk towards me. She poked me right at the back and asked me, straight to the point, "Hey, Steph, how deep is your :iconpussyplz: ?" and then it came to my mind, "Oh, it's them again. Welp. I might as well ignore."
    The girl wasn't pleased of what I was doing, she kept poking me, constantly, while  I learned the value of
IGNORANCE. Up until it came unto a point that, she couldn't take it anymore, grabbed my hair and yelled at me, "I asked you a question, now ANSWER ME!"
    At first, I was a bit surprised my hair got pulled out, and when I turned, well, it was her, the annoying bitch girl in our classroom. She was the worst. Her smile is clearly so fake, especially her laugh, I heard her laugh for real when one of her guy friends said a sex joke. And my god it was horiffying.
    I looked at her, "Oh hi. You look angry, what's the problem?" I tried to stay calm as possible, and not act like I panic, because, bitches feed fear and make it their strength
    Then she looks at me and yells at me, "I asked you a question, now answer me! I bet your like my Grandma, old and forgetful." and then she did one of her fake laughs. I just hate hearing that laugh, it cringes the shit out of me. I knew something that I can counter and then it came upon me.
    "Well, yeah, I also bet you're like your Dad, jerking off his way to Pornhub, and did I mention, how awful you smell every time you come back in the classroom from the bathroom? Like Father like Daughter." But she didn't look to happy. Oh the look on her face, if she tries to attack me, too bad, she can't mess with a chubby girl like me, she's too skinny she's likes a stick.
    "At least I'm not as fat as you fatso!" she yelled real loud, letting some students hear in some classrooms.
    "Well yeah, I'm fat, call me whatever you want, but that ain't stopping me from the fact that you just said lewd things at me. 'How deep is your pussy' like seriously? What are you going to do, ask for advices on how to make it reaaal deep?" and then, my friends came over, "Steph! That's enough!" And I willingly stepped away. 
    My friend Charlen sighs, "You know she's a bitch man! Chill!"
    "Yeah, of course I know, just taking this too easy that way she'll shut up."
    But she didn't. So she ran towards me and pulled my hair, "FUCK YOU! TAKE BACK WHAT YOU SAID! I BET YOU WERE ALREADY BORN FAT BITCH!
    My friend's tried to stop her, but damn, my friends were also got dat nice body, those curves. But, then, it hit me. No one makes fun of my dark birth before (I might post it in a journal soon the whole story of my birth) 
    I. Was. Pissed.
    She grabbed my hair real tight and one of her friends came over to stop the fight, but, . . . I didn't. She tried to squeeze me until, I grabbed her hand, and apprehended her. Her face, simply STICKED to the floor. A loud thud can actually be heard. Then, she cried with such pathetic mercy. I stopped and just looked at her, HURT on the floor. I stayed completely chill. Until one of the teacher found out and sent us to principal's office..
    By the time we reached there, Charlen, Princess and Charles were my witnesses, as for the bitch, her friends ask for random students to go and help her. But they weren't there to help, they were just there to listen the whole discussion.
    I precisely told the principal, "...Mdm. Let me explain. I was just casually talking with my friend, until, out of nowhere, this girl, " I pointed to her and she frustrated, "Don't you dare point at me, this is all your fault!"
    "My fault? When is this exactly MY fault when you asked me something SO LEWD!"
    "I was just asking!" her childish reasoning was pathetic. But the principal asked, "...What did she ask you Ms. Bendebel?"
    "She asked me on how deep MINE was." And then Charlen supported my statement, "...It's true, madam. I heard-"
    "I hate you and your lies! How dare you hurt me this way!"
    Charlen grew pissed, "Do you want me to finish you off?" The principal shushed Charlen down but Charles however babbled out, "...Mdm. We all due respect, but, Steph left the conversation behind, and plus, this girl just shouted at her for no reason, then pulled her hair."
    Then the principal called the girl's parents and as for me, well, I got to a bit of detention for 2 hours. But it's fine. Detention wasn't that bad, I just slept through detention.
    It was decided that the girl was suspended for classes due to her behaviour and news says so, that I almost broke her jaw. . . Well. My weight might have been too much. .-. Considering I'm chubby.


So this pretty where my story ends. This was the most memorable and shittiest day, that I almost broke someone's jaw.
If there are opinions to say that this is extreme, be in my shoes then and you'll understand the suffering I've been through with these people. 
But you guys can tell me any alternative ways for me to deal with this situation if this ever happens. As always

    Oh boy, what glorious days for exams. HOW MUCH I FUCKED UP in my MATH EXAM! Sigh. Great. For the first time, in my whole high school years, I fucked up, MATH. - Mental Abuse To Humans (credit goes to 9gag).
    But still, when I saw the testpaper at the back, I began to tremble, "What the fuck do I do? Shit, if only I studied last break time...! Fuck! Umm...umm..." My hands were shaking, and I really felt nervous, if I fucked up, PLUS , I used too much correction tape (but the tape sucks when you put too much pressure). And this fucked me up. I didn't know that conclusion for the formula. :grump: That was it. And plus, all the other ones, were COMPLETELY fine & understood. BUTT :iconbootyplz: , the first part of the back page of the testpaper, was fucking mind blowing. 
    But, I think, I deserve it. Because . . . 
    (1) I didn't go to church yesterday (Yes, I'm a Christian), because of how busy I am on studying (plus chatting and shtuff like that).
(2) I completely neglected Mathematics and ICT. I studied more on CLF (Christian Living Formation) and in English (The Most EASIEST shoite, ever!
    (3) I just don't think that I've studied real hard. . . I mean, enjoy now, cry later. (THIS IS ME RIGHT NOW.) :iconcraiplz:

But, I'm trying to study hard NOW. (But still is chatting and watching Youtube videos. And is peeking around and shtuff)
    Now, if you excuse me. I must study (with distraction)

A Fine Day in the Bay
I took this photo today at the bay and well, I took it :D Nature never fails to cease me! 
Well, turns out God still wants me to practice c: 
Not reciting today but tomorrow xD 
I might even be more prepared than ever :) 
Bruh, I didn't memorize my speech yet! And god thing God answered my prayers. Kept saying, "God have mercy on my soul." And I'm delivering tomorrow!!" :dummy:
So, technically, sigh, I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO BUSY.
I'm fucking tired and I wanted to stop studying for a while but my head is already killlling me!

Guess I better wash my mouth up with soap. :dummy:
This song gets me sometimes. Damn.
    Alright, so. Another journal yeah, I know but I just reaaallly wanna express my feelings right now. It's been inside my mind for too long and I just might wanna let it out for some reason.
    But anywho, what I thought of is that my upcoming birthday (which is waaaaay fucking far) and well, the phrase, 'You're going to be 16 years old!' ....Well yeah. I know I'm supposed to be happy that I get to have my birthday for September just ain't feeling right...

    Usually in my mind. When my parent's celebrate their birthdays, here's the thing, I get GLOOMY. I don't know WHY, but I think I may have figured out by doing some thinking/pondering/deliberating. And it popped out in my mind ain't a happy explanation. 

    So remember the common phrase, 'When we get older, our parent's get older as well', yeah, that's LITERALLY STUCK IN MY HEAD FOR YEARS (Thanks Facebook. e.e ). And now I'm in the 10th Grade (still wondered and thought of it when I was in the 7th Grade), as I watch people around me, as I walk, it felt like the whole world slowed down.

    As I entered the main club I have, I saw the President, Mr. Manre (Ehem). He was a normal guy with the nerdy glasses and a toned figure with a pretty decent girlfriend. When I was in the Helper's Club, I was literally playing Chess with Kuya (Brother) Manre (A Grade 11th student) and I asked, "....Kuya Manre. What would you do on your birthday?"

    Kuya Manre grinned as he moved his white knight on the board in planning to eat my rook, "I would celebrate, of course! At least you lived for a complete year...that's already a big accomplishment."

    But I wasn't too happy in answer and so I focused on the chess and sighed, "....Well yeah. But-"

    "But? Why the butts?" Kuya Manre joked a little bit and added, "...Why do you have to put a 'but' on something that is supposed to be something jolly? It's your birthday, plus, it's your day."

    "I know Kuya...It's just something else...something doesn't really fit..." I groaned and looked at the chessboard with disappointment from the stupid move I did in the chess, "...You do realize, when we get old our parents get old as well?"

    Kuya Manre did a 'hmmm' sound and did his turn, "Well yeah. We all notice that, but people don't really understand what it really means." and suddenly a smirk formed on his face, "Do you? Think you can enumerate me a full detailed explanation?" his smirk make me feel like he was challenging me to explain all my thoughts about the topic I popped out.

    I sighed, "....Well not all, but it's just that...Kuya. Sometimes it pains me when I am on my birthday, I know I'm supposed to feel joy...but my parent's birthdays...just made me think that when the years come by, like example, when I'm already 24...and my parent's would be in their 50s or almost their 60s...." and then my eyes begin to swell up.
    Kuya Manre noticed and smiled, "Hey. I know the feeling. You really love your parents a lot, but let's face it. This is life. Life can be cruel sometimes. It treats you the same way you treat it." he moved his pawn towards an open area, "...I also thought the same way, but I try not to think negatively. We may not know what the future holds." 

    I frowned and breathes out real deep from his words, "...Make sense. Usually, I really hate it when I leave my parents...I can imagine how it feels like being alone...your own children away from you, now independent, having their own just...feels so gloomy..."

    Kuya Manre thought of my statement and nodded in agreement, "...The sad truth. But there's always a time when you both can get together again. Steph, this is what life is. Just get ready for a roller coaster full of annoying and emotional bullshit. But from those things, that's what make us human, what makes us strong, different, unique, and yeah, the word you use, independent." he leaned on the chessboard and said, "...Check."

    I took a look on the chessboard, "....Shit."

    He laughed loudly, "Got too busy with feels? Don't worry. It's good to think for a little while, helps us understand better and make it more meaning. You're acting like your age, you're pretty mature for a 15 year old."

    I was a bit flattered by his statement and nodded, "....Thanks...just trying to do the right thing."

    Kuya Manre smiled and patted my shoulder, "Keep it up. You forgot to move your king though."

    I blinked and did a facepalm, "Yeah yeah yeah smarty pants. I get ya."

    And so we were back on focusing chess.

    I reflected from the conversation I had with Kuya Manre....and realized. When we grow up to become independent, our parents would also grow older than they used to be. But let's not forgot about them. Instead, thank them. Thank them for everything they've done for us. For the sacrifice that they've done for us to be happy. For the guidance that they give for us to help. Let's take a chance for us to say, "I love you to our parents." before everything may be too late.
