A Senior Moment: Entrepreneurial Activity!

February 21, 2012

Last Tuesday, us seniors had an entrepreneurial activity wherein we were free to sell whatever we wanted to for the day (9:30 am- 1:45 pm)!

This was for our Economics subject.

I felt blessed to be with such fun and hilarious groupmates : Alec, Jomar, Justin, Bea, Shine, Jagdip, Gab and Raffy!

We set up a booth named “Hungry Birds” where we sold kwek kwek, wicked oreos (see my recipe here: Wicked Oreos Recipe), root beer float, cheese sticks, ice candy, etc! πŸ™‚

Our booth was a success. Our items were all sold out, and the wicked oreos and kwek kwek became such hits! πŸ™‚

Every group had their own name and concept! It was so fun selling to the gradeschool, highschool, aids and teachers! It was really fulfilling at the end of the day, when we got to keep the money we earned . πŸ™‚ Hehe.

Photos grabbed from Bria Cardenas

“Free Hugs. 5 pesos only.” 
ANO DAAW? =))

Shakespeare had a good marketing strategy: they gave a free kiss on the cheek for every purchase done. =)) HAHAHA!

WOOHOOO GO HUNGRY BIRDS =))
That day was really fun…….and tiring!
I remember sleeping on the floor right after we closed our booths!
Good thing that the teacher just gave us a free period the rest of the day!
We were THAT tired! Haha!
————-
We were able to earn 4k plus! Not bad, grpmates!
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PURCHASED FROM US! <3
Love you Senio12s!!
Thank you Lord for this wonderful experience!

So that was how my 17th went πŸ™‚

Gonna leave you guys with a very inspirational bible quote


1 Corinthians 9: 24-27
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

My Last Post as A 15-Year Old

Hi. I’m Hershey and I’m turning 16 in 30 minutes.

Today was awesome because
1) school was fun
2) I ate kwek kwek with my friends
3) I tagged along with my friends to Laybare. I was supposed to have my underarms waxed but my pit hair was still too short, so I need to have it done on Saturday instead.
4) I got my prom gown from Toby Albrando today, and I think it’s fabulous!
5) My driver and I had a “date” (lol omg joke) to Galleria to look for the perfect prom shoes, while my mom, being a supportive mom, was at Crowne Plaza to listen to dad’s lecture and presentation. But huhu, the hunt was a failure. But it’s okay, I had a lot of fun LOLing with Kuya JR! =))
6) I won a giveaway today!!woohoo!!
7) I opened a junior bank account in Security Bank. LOL, yes, junior bank account. Heehee. Thanks, Kuya James!
8) my sister and I talked about business stuff for our online shops

Hi, I’m Hershey and I haven’t eaten dinner yet.
It’s 11:25 pm, and I’m still waiting for my parents to come home to bring me Mcdo, since there’s no food here in the house.

Hi, I’m Hershey and I’m hungry.

Oh, wow.

The car just honked. That must be my parents.
Oh wait, I’ll go check the window now.

Oh goodie! They ARE my parents!

Bye, guys! I’m off to eat my delicious burger now.

Happy birthday to me!

A senior moment: Student- Teaching!!

Our school celebrates teachers’ day every 14th of February. So in honor of the hardworking, intelligent, and ever so sacrificing teachers we are blessed to have, us seniors to “took over” the school for a day! We all knew that they needed a break.

This tradition was first implemented last year. So this would be the second time that TSMS will be doing this.
From 8 am til 1pm, the seniors will take over the roles of the gradeschool and highschool teachers, the guards, the guidance counselor, the office admin, the aids, etc. 
Here, let me tell you how the AWESOME day went!
*photos by Bria Cardenas
Ally and I were partners:) We taught the sophomores during their English period! πŸ™‚
We discussed about a poem called “The Cricket”. πŸ™‚ 
Then we let them do an activity called the “Freedom Wall”. 
They were supposed to stick on post-its on the cartolina about “the little things that make us human”.
Example: giving someone a back rub for free
Some of our students answered:
1. Eating cheese
2. Taking a shower
3. RHENBALLS (ang pinaka patok na booth ng kwek-kwek, fishball, at kikiam near our school haha)
4. Listening to music
5. Making mistakes
I loved reading their answers! Our students were so creative and smart!
Ally, Sir Aldwin (the “real” English teacher who gave us a visit to check on us), and me!
I was so blessed to have Ally work with me! She was soooo sweet and responsible!
While I was discussing the meaning of the poem, she drew on all sorts symbols and cartoons, and even listed some important notes on the board! And since my handwriting is so ugly (sulat doctor kumbaga), she was in charge of the writings on the board. We made such a great tandem, don’t you think so too, Ally?
And I also felt blessed to be given the honor to work with Sir Aldwin!
He’s just the coolest teacher ever!!
Thanks for helping us with the lessonplan, sir!

WHAT A FACE! Haha! Ally painted the freedom wall. She did an amazing job, didn’t she?
BUT WELLLLL, I DONATED THE CARTOLINA, SO I GUESS WE  COULD CALLTHE WORK LOAD  EVENLY DISTRIBUTED. Right? Riiight? RRIIIIGGHHHT?! HAHA!

THIS is how the “teachers” rested during their free hours. Haha!

Eating snacks at the blue mats…. because we are the law. HAHAHA.

The next photos were stolen from Kim Rubina!
Thanks Kim!
Dani teaching the second graders!:)
Awww, Reinhardth! This is so cute! <3
VR was nurse for the day! This is a photo of him putting on a band-aid over the little girl’s wounded finger:)
Aubrey doing library work
Pablo fixing some files at the office… LIKE A BOSS!
Teacher Jaime!!
UHM OKAY, JAIME. OKAY…
——
The next photos were taken by me! Haha! I stole Bria’s camera away from herrrrrr. Mwahahaha.
I only had classes from 8:30-10:30, so I was free the rest of the day.
I “stole” Bria’s camera with permission (haha ano daw), and roamed around school– trespassed through doors, sat in discussions, and sometimes even helped the teachers when they needed assistance!
Teacher Angeline teaching topel Geom =))
Teachers Style and Raffy used an iPad as a tool for teaching! Great job, guys! The students participated well on their game “Guess the weather shown in this picture”!

Everyone loved the Dustin and Dave’s tandem.
They were hilarious jokers! I sat in the discussion and seatwork for a full 10 minutes because they were really entertaining.

OH, AND THE FUNNIEST THING HAPPENED.
They had this student who had a crush on our classmate, Aubrey.
So right when Dustin, Dave and the whole class were talking about his “sincerest love for Aubrey”, Aubs and I just entered the door—- what a coincidence!
The class went wild, and Aubrey , out of embarrassment, walked out of the door =))
HAHAHAHAHA!
The lover!
Such a cute English teacher!!
This is a picture of Bria comforting her crying student. 
The reason behind her tears?
She said that “she didn’t have friends”.
Awwww!!:(
What a cutie!! =))

I sat in Bria and Lorra’s class— 1st grade.
Their students were being wild kasi =))
Imagine this:
Some were literally rolling all over the floor..
some were playing with cars and  jackstones…
some were singing “Clouds Are Floating” (the song Bria and Lorra taught them) over and over again– even though the singing ended like 2 minutes ago.
I stepped in the class and gave the kids a little sermon.
Immediately after that, they became quiet.
I swear!! People think I’m scary. =))
Even the sophomore classes that I handled were really quiet because they thought that I was…….. strict. =))
HAHAHA, OMG.

Boodie and Rone taught the 2nd graders about the Solar System.
I had a lot of fun sitting in, too!
They made this game where the kids would get candies when they answer a question correctly…
But before they get to answer, they have to go in front and sway their hips while turning around, and sing the song “Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto..Solar System!” (to the tune of some nursery rhyme whose title I sort of forgot πŸ˜› )

What a cutie!!!!
Teacher Rito patiently teaching the students how to multiply a value with Pi (3.14) haha πŸ™‚
Kid: Bakit po 3.14?
Rito: Kasi yun ung value ng Pi…
Kid: Bakit yun ung value ng Pi?
Rito: eh..uh.. basta, malalaman mo din yun pag tanda mo. 
=))))

Edward on guard duty! Sobrang na-feel niya ang paghawak ng megaphone! Haha!

RANDOM SNAPSHOTS!
Thanks again to Bria Cardenas’ trusty camera!
And because our outfits matched. Haha, I love you Bri!
A ltitle thing about my outfit— everything’s borrowed. =)))
The blazer was borrowed from my mom. She’s a size large, so the blazer was sooo big for me. I had to fold the sleeves up so that it would look as if it were intentionally oversized for me:)
I got the top from a random drawer in my house. =)) I don’t even know who owned that! Maybe it’s from either of my two sisters. Haha!
The bandage skirt was borrowed from Dani! 
And the shoes were borrowed from my mom!
See, I’m so resourceful! =))
I hope that I was able to pull off the “corporate-but-not-so-corporate” look, though.

For some reason, we were allowed to eat in the classroom that day.
Masyado atang naawa samin ang mga teachers kaya pinabayaan nalang kami.
So this is Bria and me taking advantage of the moment. =))
Hello, babuyan galore!
——
Such happy and workload-free-for-the-day teachers!!
I’m happy that we were able to give them a break by taking their places!
That day was their day, and they deserved to be well rested!
This experience was really life-changing.
I realized how hard it is to be a teacher. I had to modulate my voice, be patient towards the students -even to those who weren’t listening, and run through every detail until they understand the lesson well.
It was also very rewarding when the students finally understood the lesson and its essence in life. 
I felt like I was on cloud 9 when some sophomores tweeted us saying that they enjoyed their English period with Ally and me. It’s so wonderful to think that people actually appreciate the effort you exerted.
πŸ™‚ 
The experience was really tiring, too.
Bria, Aubrey, Angeline, Dani and I had to go to the clinic during lunch break to take a nap—- WE WERE THAT EXHAUSTED.
I have this new found respect for teachers.
What they’re doing is not at all easy (esp with a ratio of 1:40; teacher: students)
SO TO ALL TEACHERS OUT THERE, YOU ALL ARE BLESSINGS TO US!
THANK YOU FOR MOLDING US INTO THE PERSONS WE ARE TODAY!
YOU HAVE, AND WILL ALWAYS, TOUCH OUR LIVES FOREVER!!!!
Xoxo,

A Senior Moment: Creative Shoot

During the December break, I spent long afternoons coming up with a formal proposal to give to the school.
It included WHATs, WHYs, HOWs, drawings, sample photos, etc.

I gave up all my heart in doing this,  because I really wanted to MAKE IT HAPPEN.

A lot of people told me that the chance that the office will approve of my proposal is highly unlikely, but I still did it anyway.
I didn’t want to grow old, look back and regret that I didn’t give it a try.

And, with God’s grace, the office gladly approved of it.
The Principal, Vice Principal, and the School Director talked and planned it all out with me during class hours.

It was all about the yearbook Creative Shoot πŸ™‚

Our school never thought of coming up with one, so I decided to start it.
It will be fun because it will give the students a chance to express themselves.

I believe that the high school yearbook photos are important, not only because it makes reading the yearbook exciting and enjoyable, but because it would also help our batch mates conjure up memories of us. Creative shots will depend on how we want to be REMEMBERED.  It will give the readers a lasting impression of WHO WE REALLY WERE during our highschool years. 


So I got my childhood friend and playmate, JUNESSA RENDON, to be the official photographer of this event.


The shoot was really successful! It lasted from 8 am (right after the flag ceremony when someone asked a girl out for prom over the mic haha) until 1pm.
The fun part was that WE LITERALLY DID NOTHING SCHOOL-RELATED THE WHOLE DAY.
We just put on make-up and costumes, laughed together and chilled.


I was out of the classroom most of the time, since I was with Junessa while she was taking shots (alalay este moral support kumbaga).


Thank God for that beautiful day! The shooot went  sooo successful! I’m just really really proud of my batchmates! I love you senio12s!!!






*these photos were stolen from Brianna Cardenas. Hehe. We took epal shots in between the shoot. Kumbaga behind-the-scene? Haha! I shall post the real shots next time:>


Enjoy the photos, people! πŸ™‚

Bria, me, teacher alen, teacher ai, and dani:)

I love this candid shot of me!

The break dancer, the drag racer, the pilot, the guitarist, the drummer, and the boy in the uniform =))

Baba looking cute in her ballet costume!! and her nephew was sooo adorable!! x

Bria was “testing the lights” in this photo.
The photo went great tho!!
I like this shot.. kaso nga lang ang awkward ng arms ko. HAHAHA -__-
I went as “Rosie the Riveter”- a symbol of women empowerment πŸ™‚

Bria’s soo fierce!!

MY BABIES!

With Junessa …who’s really tired =))

MUKHA AKONG KULANGOT WHEN IM BESIDE DANI. PERIOD. Gah.

Aubrey and Bria playing around with the balloons that were used during the prom proposal earlier that day.
Dani Barretto went as Rachel Zoe:)

Ze awesome photographer!

I did my own make up! And it was my first time to use super red lipstick. HAHA!
Oh, and super thanks to Dani for fixing my hair! πŸ™‚

Can’t wait to see the final and edited shots of the shoot!!! <3

It’s a “Rest Day- Sunday” !

As a graduating student, I can say that February is indeed a month of STRESS.

Five activities ALL HAPPENED during the past week( Monday: Creative shoot, Tuesday: Olympics eliminations + finalization of creative shoot shots, Wednesday: Talk about Globalization with some foreign speakers, Thursday: Dodgeball+Girls’ basketball game + Boys’ basketball game, Friday: Student-teaching activity).
*I’m going to blog about the activities soon, don’t worry!

I NEEDED A BREAK FROM EVERYTHING!

Thankfully, Sunday is rest day for me.
So I decided to wear a super duper comfy outfit!

Outfit:
Gray hoodie: Big Tent Bazaar (Buy 1 Take 1 Korean store)
Black pants: BEBE
Suede boots: Zara
Yellow satchel: Impulse Co
Rings and earrings: bazaar

The photos were taken at church that day:)
I wore hoodies since I wanted something comfortable + it was raining + the airconditioning system in the building was crazyyyy!

I wore less make up that day, too (since it was my “rest day-Sunday”).
Just put on MAC foundation, a little bit of MAC eyeshadow (Charcoal brown), a little blush, and my trusty NYX nude lipstick.
It isn’t seen in the photo, since I just used my phone to take photos. But, yeah. 
Oh, and look!
My sister and I coincidentally matched outfits that day! She was also wearing a satchel! :)) She’s starting an online shop of  her own called “Bagella”, where she sells bags. πŸ™‚
After church, we went to Bulacan for a party to attend to. While gobbling up a plate of “balat ng lechon”, I realized that it’s my JS prom in 12 days!
So diet starts on Monday.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to look my best on my senior prom:)
So that was pretty much my Sunday!
I’m glad that we didn’t get to do a lot that day!
I needed a break from engaging in activities, lol.

The Flutterbudgets were required to have our hairs teased for the photo.
You know what’s funny?
I JUST HAD MY HAIR RELAXED.
Imagine the heartache I had to undergo when my classmates were messing up my hair!
Pero ang laughtrip din, kasi wa-epek.
Hindi gumana ang teasing sa hair ko!
HAHAHA! So imbis na magmukhang magulong cool, nag mukha lang straight na buhaghag, bwisit.
Oh welllzzzz.

This is a behind-the-scene-photo taken while I was still away…..
MIND YOU, I WASNT LATE!
I came in 10 minutes early…. BUT IN THE WRONG COSTUME, hahaha!
So I had to go back home and change. I was 5 minutes late for the shoot, nyahahaha.
Can’t wait to see the outcome of the photos!
And for the recital, too!
Wizard of Oz is such a classic!
