Here’s a second part (and hopefully the last part) of my Instagram photo dump for the past two months!
Tag Archives: Volleyball
Okay, okay. I admit it. Ever since I bought a new phone, I became addicted to Instagram. I’m now INSTAGRAMHOLIC :> Since I wasn’t able to share you anything for the past couple of months, I’ve decided to post my instagram photos and put captions in them. Look at it as if I was telling you guys a story. Brace yourself, a lot of photos coming your way!
Okay, I have to stop now. I’ll just probably do a part two or something. I got carried away and didn’t notice the time. I actually enjoyed looking at old photos and trying to remember what happened back then. Ahh.. life.
Hope you enjoyed the photos too!
I can’t remember the last time I went to Cantada Sports Complex. Stepping into the place reminded me of the days when I was so fit and tanned. Yes, it has been that long. Six months may not seem that long, but it does feel like it. Although it was my last-minute decision to not play because of my unusual work schedule, I decided to watch anyway. I didn’t think that it was going to take much energy from me to watch a one-day tournament. Did I have fun? Let’s just say that I made the right decision spending the entire day with these girls instead of sleeping at home
Most of the games were fun to watch. I’m just not sure if it was because players were good or because I missed the game itself. I missed seeing the sun up high. Because of work, the only time I see sun is when it’s about to set. In fact, my nose got sunburned despite not playing. I’m that sensitive to sun now.
At the end of the tournament, Dzi and Alyssa placed 4th, while Fille and Bea bagged the championship! Ate Karla and Sharah were able to join the quarter finals but failed to win for the semis. For both girls who haven’t trained for a long time, they were pretty good.
After the championship, we decided to have dinner at BCG. Unfortunately, the moment we left Cantada, the rain started pouring HARD. When we arrived Fort to find a place to eat, my flats, made of cloth, were soaked wet. I had to buy slippers from Ipanema (Ateneo Open’s sponsor, by the way) because I was having a hard time walking with those wet flats. While walking around, trying to find a restaurant with a free table, I bumped into a couple of old St. Scho classmates. I’ve been trying to see Heidi for the longest time, and there we were.

3:00 – 5:00 PM
Ate merienda at Bubble Tea in Tomas Morato with Jj, Chu, Kyle, Dzi, and Ty. Ordered the usual: Honey Dew Milk tea and Takoyaki!
5:00 – 5:45 PM
Went to the court beside Regis to play volleyball, but the net was just so bad that it was impossible to play there. It was too wide for the court and stretched badly.
5:45 – 6:30 PM
Attempted to look if College Covered Courts was open; CLOSED.
6:30 – 7:00 PM
Went to the Blue Eagle Gym to see if no one was playing, but when we got there, there was a small basketball league.
7:00 – 7:30 PM
Three of us went to different places in Quezon City to check if there were courts open. Finally, JJ was able to find a court, but it wasn’t free ’til 10 PM.
7:30 – 8:00 PM
Kyle, Chuck, and I went to Chuck’s house to get badminton rackets. Chuck’s room IS SO NICE O_O
8:00 – 9:00 PM
Half of us played badminton at Moro Lorenzo Complex to buy time. We still had two hours and we didn’t know what to do anymore.
9:00 – 10:00 PM
Ate dinner at Mc Donald’s.
10:00 – 1:30 AM
FINALLY. Played Volleyball.
Would do anything just to play volleyball–even if it’s almost 2 in the morning.
It has always been part of the Ateneo tradition to send off their seniors through a gathering called the Blue Roast. Booths, booze, concert, freebies, and blue roses are just some of the things that you can expect in this awesome event. Normally I don’t attend school activities, but I promised myself during my freshman year that I was going to attend this one and will be with people whom I have been friends since first year college. So, I spent the afternoon with AVC friends and the rest of the night with Jem, Dzi, A, Sharah, Gretch, and Fille. Since I have been spending most of my time with AVC, I found my blue roast experience nostalgic. Definitely missed these girls! SHOCKS. It’s been FOUR, fast years.
To a certain extent, this year’s Blue Roast was just what I expected. As much as I didn’t want to spoil myself with any Blue Roast details, I have been to one before this. Although this was the case, the feeling of the event being dedicated to the batch you’re part of was very different from the feeling of just attending it for a friend. For the record, I wasn’t expecting that it was going to be this fun!
In the middle of the event, all seniors were given one free blue rose. It is part of the tradition for the seniors to give their blue rose to the person: a) who made an impact in their college life; b) they want to confess their feelings to, or; c) they really love. I’m not sure if these are the right descriptions, but to make things simple, blue rose is meant to be given to a person who’s very special to you.
When the roses were starting to be distributed to the students, PANIC MODE: ON. Honestly, I don’t like-like anyone right now–and even if I did decide to give it to a friend who have made an impact in my college life, THERE ARE JUST SO MANY OF THEM. Gah. Blue rose, y u make things so complicated?! I actually wanted to buy extra roses and just shuffle the free [special] rose with everything else, but it just felt wrong. So, I decided to give my blue rose to JJ [eh, wala kaming picture together ] because he was the one who made most impact in me. Before anything else, JJ’s a really good friend, alright? He’s been there through ups and downs, which not everyone would do. I really appreciate his efforts in always trying to stand by my side–in good times and bad times. For that, he deserves my blue rose
Sadly, Dzi loses her blue rose before she was able to give it to someone else
Four years would not have been the same without the four of you. Lam niyo na yun kung bakit. We might have drifted apart, but we always find a way to catch up and act like we still talk each and every day. We stuck with each other no matter how bad things went and you girls always made me feel that I will always have you by my side. Thank you. Sorry. I LOVE YOU <3 106 forever and ever, AMENThe person I can dance with anywhere even without music,
The person who’s willing to stay up all night with you while eating cup noodles,
The person who treated me like I was part of her family, and;
The person who I’ve known forever and made beach volleyball fun:
You girls are awesome I should definitely remember to thank the organizers someday Thanks to Gretch for the awesome pictures!
