Today is my last day of “vacation” before I go back to school tomorrow.
I went to school this afternoon to have my thesis papers binded. My thesis did not get a grade that would qualify it to be archived in the school’s thesis collection but why should I let that stop me from getting it binded, right? For all you know, my reasons for having it binded is because I want to and because I didn’t want my thesis papers to be all over the place and cluttered.
Also, *if* I were included in the list of archived thesis projects, I wouldn’t want to submit my papers because I want to keep it for myself. In a few years I will look back and say that I did an awesome project (anddddd by then the feeling of bitterness will come up again because my panelists didn’t think so, too). So yup, I had it binded for personal keeping. Plus it looks snazzy.
I also wanted to keep my highschool thesis with me but I had to pass it to the school. Unlike college, our school requires all thesis documents (whether it got a high mark or not, s’long as it’s not a failing mark) to be submitted to the school before we get cleared for graduation.
While waiting for the book binding jobs to be done, I went to Mall of Asia with a friend and watched Fast Five (in the correct timeline, this is the FOURTH in the F&F installment followed by Tokyo Drift which is supposedly the last, in the correct timeline). But before that, we waited for our other friends. Took them long to get to MOA because they had to sort some graduation requirements at school.
For the meantime, my friend and I went from one store to another to check at clothes, and bags, shoes, y’know girl stuff. I thought everything we saw were just too expensive and not worth it. At that time, all I could think of was going back to Landmark, Ayala Makati and shop til I drop. Hahaha! Anyway, the good part of the time that we waited is that we had lunch at this Mexican-inspired restaurant and I tasted yummy quesadillas and they had affordable meals. Another would be sharing the yogurt at Red Mango, I can never finish a cup of yogurt so that’s why I insisted I just share on my friend’s cup. 😛
When my friends FINALLY arrived, just in the nick of time, I was more excited than them to watch Fast Five. :)) I keep insisting to buy tickets NOW and buy whatever they needed to buy so we can go inside already and watch it. Unfortunately we didn’t get to watch the very first part, but looking back it seems irrelevant to the story now. The BAMF scenes and vagina-exploding (LOL SORRY FOR THE TERM) scenes of hot guys don’t come until some 30 minutes later in the movie.
I would give the movie a 7/10 rating. 😛 Only because something *is* missing there and it isn’t 100% perfect. The drifting and racing scenes were barely felt. Where are the chicks and more badass cars?!?! K, gotta admit, I watched it because of Paul Walker. Rawr. Pretty girls, badass Torreto sister, Paul Walker, fast cars = AWESOME MOVIE. (OMG I sound like a dude!! =))) This movie also reminds me a lot of Takers, it’s been sitting in my HD for months now but I haven’t watched it.
Two hours later, the credits rolled in and I knew there was something at the end of it. Unfortunately (again), I wasn’t able to see it because I had to go w/ my friend because she’s going back to school to get her hardbound thesis. When we got there, the store where she had her thesis hardbound was closed, tsk.
I picked my thesis and checked the quality. It’s alright, passable. Not perfect but passable. I’m happy that my documents turned out to be plenty resulting in a pretty thick thesis documentation. I like thick books. 😉 I write too much, after all.
