September 2012: Wide and Awake

"Wake me up when September ends." This is how the song goes. In my case, I won't be singing this lovely song because I have been up for the whole last month. Yes, literally awake. Since September 2012 was the busiest month of the year in my life, I never had the chance to get myself enough sleep. For every weekend of the previous month, I had exams to take which meant that I needed to stay late at nights on weekdays to study. Despite all the tiresome activities and requirements, I didn't complain because those were completely fun and exciting. 

Now that October 2012 is about to begin, it's time to say "Thank you, September. Hello, October!" I can't wait to see what's in store for the new month. Time flies so fast. I can't believe I only have one month for my first semester in law school and that there are only two months left before December (Hey, Christmas!) 

Of course, I wouldn't let a beautiful month end without showcasing how special it was! Below are the Instagram photos taken during September 2012. Oh yes, I'm here to tell you a story!

Batch Eximius 25 is now officially part of the Lakas Atenista! I am one of the new members of this Ateneo Law School organization. Together with me are my batch mates namely Jade, Resci, Kyrie, James, Yna, Gloria, Mark, James, Andy, Camille and Elica. The photo above was taken before our quasi and accepting ceremony. 

Green Coffee is the only 24 hours coffee shop near my place. This is the reason why I always choose it for study out nights. My classmates also love the place! We stayed there last month for almost every night (well, except for the weekends!)

The lovely gown I saw at SMX Convention. It was from Kasuotan. Someday, I'm going to wear a classy wedding gown on my special day. I swear, it will be the best day of my life!

God knows how thankful I am for the Official Davao Bloggers organization. Because of this dynamic group, I get exclusive invites to events! Just recently, I attended the soft opening of SM Premier Lanang!

This is me before attending my night class! The dress was shipped from the US by my trusted online buddy.

Meet my amazing high school friends. We seldom see each other these days because of the different demands in our lives. Thankfully, before the previous month ended, we had a coffee date at GC. 

The Greenwich Pizza Blowout for bloggers was successful. Thanks to Ria for choosing me as one of the attendees. It was a super fun event! Hey, unlimited pizzas, fries and chicken everywhere.

 Forever 21 is finally here in Davao city! Looks like I need to book a weekend for October so I can get the dresses I want from this amazing clothing line.

House blessing for our Davao home! My mom wants our place to be blessed every year so for 2012, she asked a family friend priest to bless our home during the feast day of St. Michael. 

Study out at Coffee Cat with two of the best classmates ever - Maui and Von! 

This is me making my own Maki at Tokyo Tokyo's opening in SM Lanang Premier! Oh, I love being a foodie blogger.

These are just some of the evidences of how fun my September 2012 was! How about yours? Was it also perfect?

  2. September had been a busy month for me, too. And I'm guessing October is going to be another busy month. But no complaints from me. Busy is cool. :)

    I can imagine you'll be stunning in a wedding dress as pretty as the one in the pic. Yes, girl, you deserve to be the most beautiful girl in the world on your very special day.

  9. You've been very busy that's why you haven't got much sleep. Just take it easy on the caffeine. Coz too much of everything is not good..But in all fairness, you're still so beautiful! How did you managed to do that? You're amazing, Algene girl!

  19. I enjoyed reading your September tale and looking at your happy photos. Life with all its challenges is beautiful and I know someone like you could make it through all the rough times for the rest of your law education. Love your dresses. Am sure you will one day look fabulous in a wedding gown. Keep inspiring many of us :-)
