MamiDadi’s Three Years to Forever! (Late post)

Celebrated our third year as Mr. and Mrs. C at Subic Mangrove. We’ve made an agreement to always travel as we celebrate our anniversary. In our first anniversary, we went back to our hotel where we had our wedding preps and first night together, Parque Espana, and in our second anniversary, we went to Bohol. For our fourth anniversary, we’re planning to go to El Nido, Palawan (but this will still largely depend on our budget. hehe.)

Matriculation Day

Dadi left and went back to Manila in the morning of August 4. Huhu. We’re officially LDR. Huhu. :(
Also on that day was my matriculation in NTU. Since I was done with the registration in the International Student Center and medical exam and got the results already, this was the next step (they don’t use the words enrollment and enlistment, by the way). I prepared myself to wait in long queues, I brought candies and a book to read, just like my good old enrollment days in UP Diliman. When I got to the Lecture Theater 7 for my matriculation , I saw a long queue but it was moving pretty fast. We were then seated inside a fully air-conditioned theater and waited for our names to be called. After an hour of waiting, my matriculation was done. Yes, that fast.

The most peaceful enrollment I've experienced for years. I almost fell asleep while queuing dahil tahimik. I missed the UP war zone during enrollment days. ‪#‎missinghome‬ ‪#‎missingmystudentsandcofaculty‬ ‪#‎missingallthekaguluhan‬

Next step, aside from attending tons of orientations and enjoying free food and goodies, is choosing our subjects. Yay!
