Updates! What I've Been Up To! Journalism Shenanigans!

Helloooooo! I've been inactive lately, so here! An update post!

First of all, I'd like to just put it out there that I'm currently in the 10th Grade of high school. Here in the Philippines, this is the last school year I'll be taking as a Junior High School student. Yes, it's pretty much stressful, since I study in a Science High School. 

Speaking of the matter, another pressing fact as to why I haven't been able to post much is our research. We're currently doing an Investigative Project, so there's that. We're actually going to the College of Science in University of the Philippines Diliman, in hopes for a consultation session with a professional during our off-camp on Tuesday.

FUNNY THING, THOUGH. We were supposed to send a notification email, along with a formal letter to the institute earlier this week, in order for them to know that we're going to their facilities next week. I actually thought that it was already sent last Thursday or Friday. However, little did I know, the letter was only sent last night at 11 PM! And aside from that, today is the college's GRADUATION! My other group members tried to call, but no one's there to answer. Tomorrow's a Sunday, so again, they won't be able to answer. I guess we're just gonna have to keep our fingers crossed.

Another thing that I'd like to say (I really don't know if this is significant, relevant, or necessary, but here goes) is that we're gonna be having our screening next week for Journalism! The District Schools Press Conference is just around the corner, and our journ class needs to determine who's competing. I'm excited for all of us!

And now, for my non-life related updates.

My current read is Unwind by Neal Shusterman! It's a gripping Futuristic thriller. Must read. I'M SERIOUS!

I've also hauled two books from Fullybooked yesterday, since they had a sale! I got a hardcover of The Winner's Crime, as well as a paperback of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe!

But I still need to return my copy of Ari and Dan to Fullybooked since IT HAS A BIG-A**TEAR ON ONE OF THE PAGES!

As for TV, I'm currently watching the night-recaps of Pinoy Big Brother 737. I know, it's not like me to watch this reality show, but I figured that the housemates this season are really relate-able, since they're teenagers, just like me, and they experience the same problems as I. I'm also waiting for the 11th season of Supernatural, as well as the series 9 for Doctor Who!

In other news, hooray for the United States! Same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states!

How about you guys? What have you been up to?

Waiting on Wednesday: Library of Souls

Hi! This is me, climbing back from the grave, for the tenth time. And I suppose that with everything happening around in school, I might be going in and out of this "grave".

So much for that!

And to kickstart my attempt in successfully balancing my lives, here is a Waiting on Wednesday post! This meme was created by Breaking the Spine.

I don't think there's a more suitable book to feature this week than Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs!
