Hey, guys! Have you been so excited in your life that even if a special day is still weeks or months away, you just can't help counting the days until you reached that moment? I can't believe I'm feeling this right now for two reasons. First, my boyfriend's coming back from Spain this April and second, my graduation is due on April 21! Yay! So we just had our graduation pictorial yesterday with Splurge Photography. I planned on getting shots myself of the actual event--the room where we stayed, the room where hair and makeup was done and the actual photo booth. However, I was too busy dressing up and fixing makeup for our creative group shots from 9:00AM-10:00PM straight with minimal eating and resting in between.
First thing done after paying the graduation pictorial fee is doing the hair and makeup. I was amazed because one classroom was turned to like a makeup haven with different makeup artists doing the job. If I am not mistaken, there were 8 of them, each have their own vanity mirrors with bulbs, that sort of thing only professional makeup artists have as well as different makeups in different high-end brands. If I am too fortunate, I'd like to have something like those in my future room.
After my payment was confirmed, I changed into my toga outfit! Next was the Filipiniana outfit. Then, my creative shot sporting some '90s chic outfit!
I thank school for the all the first times, for the failures and triumphs, for the rejections and considerations, for the rules and values set, for the challenges, for the friendships and quarrels, for the passionate professors and their words of wisdom, for the 1.0s and 2.0s, for the scholarly treatment, for the countless chances, for the laughter and tears, for the deadlines, for the sleepless nights and overnights-turned-sleepover I both dreaded and enjoyed, for the adventures I had, for the knowledge I get, for the inspirations I look up to, for the goals I made, for the passion I possess, for the built potentials, for the milestone I reached, for the future I dream, for the better me. The real battle may be tough, but I'm well-equipped.
Thanks family: mama, papa, kuya, bunso, uncles, aunties, cousins, nephews and nieces, as well as to extended families for the overflowing support and encouragement. Thank you to my friends (you know yourselves) for sharing this endeavor with me. Thank you to my Alma Maters who molded me, Valenzuela Christian School for raising me for 12 years and of course, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila for being my home for four years of collegiate life.
Above all else, thank you, Lord, for letting me live my everyday life without limits, boredom, fear, deep sorrows and regrets. I cannot thank You enough.
Hmm...Sorry for the drama. Anyway, here are the pictures I took with lovely friends!
Ughhh, these faces are what I will miss the most when I leave college. For all of you out there who haven't yet done with your collegiate life, enjoy every second of it, cherish the moment and the people you're still with because it's only gonna end and there's no coming back. You will have to move forward and see some of them only few times. :(
Anyway, I'm gonna wrap this post up before I swell up in tears. Until my next post, everyone! Happy blogging!
