Haven’t Had Enough

— Sleep, that’s what.

Today’s the start of the midterm exam week.

I haven’t been able to post much since July and I haven’t exactly had enough sleep. I know I’ve been procrastinating, too, and I have two exams tomorrow yet I am still writing but I haven’t had enough sleep for the past couple of months. Even if I slept at an earlier hour, I’d most probably wake up at 2 in the morning (which is creepy when it happens consecutive times).

What else have I been doing for the past few weeks? I haven’t continued watching Conan and I’m stuck at episode 296. I wish I could get to the latest episode soon. I also hope I could buy the manga available in English.

Recently, I have gotten into collecting again. I feel like it’s really part of who I am. lol I’m going to buy the limited edition stuff I want then save the normal ones for when I get to Korea and hopefully soon, Japan.

I will be passing my application form for the Media Ministry to the local church tomorrow. More work, but I want to serve God.

I got a few penpals recently as well. I have yet to send the letters, but I hope I can send them soon. They’re probably already waiting.

It has been the most tiring semester so far. The Korean class I attended added to the exhaustion, but I enjoyed it so I don’t want to think about it that much. ><

I also want to say that it’s probably been the semester that I have spent so much. I’ve been trying out different food and hanging out with different groups of people who like food. I can’t stop myself from eating because I was told that if it’s food, spend as much money as you can as long as you want to eat. Kinda good, kinda not.

I’ll do my best in my exams and for the last few weeks of the semester. I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my CISCO, Advanced Engineering Mathematics, Electronics, and Circuits. They’ve made me cry several times this semester already. But I can’t fail any of the classes I’m enrolled to or I have to say good bye to the 2 week vacation in Korea I am planning. Lol. Also, I’ll be doing it for my future, but mainly for Korea 2017.

My Saturday this week is free so hopefully, I’ll be able to publish the stuff that’s been accumulating dust in my drafts.

I hope everyone takes care! Bye~

Having Such A Name As Mine

My name is Bessie… and it’s troublesome.

I have been given the name Bessie by my parents as they say it came from the name Elizabeth, specifically Queen Elizabeth. My parents would continue on to tell me how unique and beautiful my name is.

In the Philippines, it is an annoying name to have. People would call each other by ‘Bes’, ‘Best’, ‘Bessy’, ‘Beshie’, and a few others which refer to the word ‘best friend’. I’m not exactly sure how it will be in other countries as I have never been or lived overseas. To be honest, I wish it wouldn’t be like this.

Whenever I introduce myself, I would say ‘Hello! I am Bessie’, and most of the time I get these kinds of replies:

  • “Say that again.”
  • “Are you serious?
  • What’s your real name?
  • “Hello, you’re now my best friend.”

Or sometimes, when another person introduces me:

  • “She’s your best friend?”

The ones who call me would sometimes greet me / call me like this:

  • “Oh, everybody’s best friend is here!”
  • “Hey best friend!”

Another problem has come: people have been calling each other ‘bes’ as a joke. It might have started a few weeks ago. A few days back, about three groups of people kept on calling each other ‘bes’ and I had to look at all of them, only to find out that they weren’t calling me.

I started to not give attention when someone says ‘Bes’ or ‘Bessy’. They have to poke me before I turn around.

Although it’s troublesome, I still like that the name I have is unique. I like how I’ve never met someone with the same name, unlike some of the people I know. Sometimes, it does sound pretty cute.

I like it and dislike it, but I would never dream of changing it.

I Want to Write

a/n: I wrote a funny poem last 31st of July while waiting for the Selena Gomez Revival Tour Concert. I stayed inside Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf for an hour and a half and wrote this, whatever this actually is:

Tell me how to write

So that I could write

What else should I do

I am in ruins

 

I wanted to write

But what is there to?

Should I write ’bout trees

Or that door closing

 

I am still asking

what things should I do?

I am still unsure

So what do I do?

 

I can’t believe that

After all of that

I have made something

I have written now

 

It was fun to do

It was fun to ask

I asked and answered

How does someone write

 

The page is ending

I think I should stop

But let me tell you

It was fun to write

End of July, Start of August

My End of July

The last week of July has been one of the greatest weeks of my 2016! I had a lot of fun with classmates and a few other people.

Around midweek, I was offered an extra ticket to Bangtan Boys’ Epilogue in Manila. It was given to me at a discounted price, so I bought it immediately. The Friday of the week, I ate with a few classmates at Mang Inasal. It was fun. I also met another ate. We got immediately close.

By Saturday, I had my weekly Korean language class. The sessions were always fun and I do learn a lot. I wish I could continue to Elementary 1 next semester.

Saturday was also the day of BTS’ concert and I arrived at the venue past 1PM. I met up with my classmates. We went around the venue and ate at Jollibee. I met up with another one around 4:30PM and lined up by 5PM. BTS’ concert was one great experience.

After the concert, I met up with teamwaffles’ maknae, Pam. I’ve known her for two years and I finally met our baby. It was really nice to meet you, Pam! I love you.

Selena Gomez’ concert was scheduled the next day. It was a regular day for most of the day. I left the house an hour after I went to church. I was alone during the concert but I met two ate’s while I was there. I’m becoming friendlier! Lol. I finally met my childhood idol. I cried lots but did enjoy it as well. I also can check off the ‘Go to a concert’ on my list of things I want to do alone.

As I was alone during Sel’s concert, I waited until around half past 6 inside Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. I wrote a poem while waiting! It was awesome. I’ll be posting about it tonight as well.

My Start of August

August 1st was great as well. I was late for my first class and couldn’t go to class, but I went home with a box of donuts! I’ve been thinking about buying BTS’ new photo book: Summer in Dubai.

August 2nd was okay. It was stressful and sad, but I’m okay. I might not be able to go to Korea by January 2017, unlike planned.

August 3rd, I watched the Conan movie!! It was a less stressful day. I bought cupcakes as well.

August 5th will be Girls’ Generation’s 9th debut anniversary. I’m so proud of my girls.

I decided on collecting again. To other people, it might be a waste of money, but to me, it’s what makes me happy. I’ll be buying less impulsively, though! I promise! ❤

The rest of August might be great. Lots of Korean Pop groups are coming back and I can’t wait!

*Will be updating this tonight. It’s 1:33 AM and I can’t really think that straight but I’ll be publishing this now.
