…would probably be the best pick I were to choose a theme song for this week.

With a one-two punch of SIP Approval (2x if you include my revision), as well as the approval of the three who I helped and a streak of high test scores (especially the three MATHS. COWABUNGA); it’s practically the definition of a euphoric week.

The last time I had a week like this was back at sophomore year.

Strangely, everything felt right. Everywhere I went, it was though I had entourage of bunnies and unicorns along with me, and every step I took painted a field of cotton candy complete with a double rainbow. Even the attempts of raining over my parade were immediately washed out by my suddenly exuberant aura.

It sort of felt like I was reconnecting with a part of me that I kept hidden for the past year. It’s nice to meet that optimistic, plucky yet nonchalantly diligent kid inside me again.

And that ladies and gents, is how you make up for a less-than-stellar school year.


Finals Week: Day 1 (The Approval)

I woke up without any clue of what will happen to me today, or this week even. I rushed my Research Plan last night so it’s still not printed, and I haven’t even done any of my assignments. I don’t even know if my Research Plan will be approved.

I basically dove unarmed into the day, headfirst.

And when I received my printout from a tricycle driver I hired, Rochelle and I smelled fear, anxiety, and a bit of hope reeking out of our Research Plans. We headed to the Biology Lab to hopefully receive our first approval.

Thankfully, we were bestowed with the sweet first signature.

As we both continued on with our approval, the next two signatures came to us like nails to a magnet. Minimal questions were asked, and luckily I was able to dodge rejection.

Two more signatures and I’m gonna be done. HOLLA WOOP WOOP 

Hopefully the next few days of this week will be as good. 🙂
