HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY'S to: MYLENE MARIE BALISALISA, HOLLY MEDINA, & VICTOR TORRES!


Today was very interesting!

I went to church in the morning with my parents.
When I got home, my cousin and all my other friends came to pick me up.
We went to Holly's birthday party at Kilili Beach.
We ate, spotted, took pictures, then we were off.
We went to Rachelle's house to use the restroom.
POOR JAY! We left him.
[Where's my present? You said you gona give me! Lol]
We went to S.A. basket ball court and S.A. Church.
We were waiting for Wayne but he was taking so long!
...So we left him!
We went to buy gas, which I paid for
Then we were off to the Grotto.
There was a lot of fruit flies, so we left
We went to Kalabera Cave.


It was nice but the road sucked!
The pick up is so dirty [sorry baby]
Then we went to bird island..


Next, we went to Mc Donald's Garapan..
Ate... AGAIN!
Then, we all got dropped home.


It was a nice way of spending a 14th Birthday :)

Girl Power!!

So on August 25th, we were suppose to have a clean up with the whole S.A.V.E. Club and Beautify CNMI, but unfortunately.. They had their own clean up by Hopwood and we did ours. So Madisa, Jessica, Keisha, and I had our own clean up. We hiked own to the beach, filled up 10 bags of trash. To our opinion, it doesn't look like we made any difference. We didn't want to pick up too much because bring them back up would be a hassle.

You know what? The pictures explain more.. Here you go:

Our hike down...




Where do we start?


Look at the trash. Wait, there's A LOT MORE!


Our way back up..

Madisa & I are the only ones that has gone down to this beach before and we were the ones that suggested to clean up the beach. YES! WE NEED SOME CLEANING TO DO!

We were surprised that so many fishermen came down to fish that day. A few of them stopped to talk to us and asked us what we were doing. They kind of thought we were crazy to think that we are seriously going to pick up all that trash. I decided to ask one of the fishermen what were his thoughts about going to the beach looking like this, and this is what he had to say:



Now take a look at all the pictures in my Picasa Album (left colum). Now tell me that you're going to help us clean this beach up! Do it for the island, fishermen, and for the world.

P.S.: When we do the clean up, I suggest we think of some easier way to get the trash back up because IT WAS SO TIRING! Some of the fishermen had to help us carry them back up.

Weekend IV

I think I'm a bit late with this post.

August 19, 2007

I don't know who's birthday was on this day but then we celebrated two :)
Cinta & Litcelle

Around 11am, I followed Bree, Doug, and Litcelle to the airport field for Cinta's birthday! A few people were there but the birthday celebrate wasn't there yet. When she got there, it was fun time :). Litcelle, Doug, and I played frisbee. Angelo and a few other boys that I don't know were playing baseball (more like: Angelo bat and you fetch!). We gathered around and talked about school and stuff I've forgotten. Angelo payed Litcelle $10 to massage his back and aching leg. It was worth it huh, Angelo?

I had a fun time. It was really relaxing, breezey, and fun. I also got to exercise! I'm still good at catching a hard baseball and throwing it! Cool, I miss the days when I used to be in a softball team in elementary. But I feel like, I've gotten a bit girly :|

Next, Bree, Doug, Litcelle, and I went to the Grotto. It was Litcelle and I's first time. There was more than 100 steps to walk to get down and up to the Grotto.

I had a blast, though I still have some scratches from washing up against the rocks. It was pretty narly but heck, it was worth it! I'm planning on going there again with my friends.

After Grotto.. We went to dinner at Tony Romas, to celebrate Litcelle's birthday. Cinta was suppose to join us but she had to be with her relatives at the moment. So it was just--Litcelle, Doug, Mr. Uhl, Angelo, EJ, and I. We ate yummy food :). Litcelle got $10 from Mr.Uhl. Angelo gave her a pink fluffy hat and a rubber chicken. The whole highlight, darn that was funny! Angelo where the pix at?

Anyway, over all.. This whole day was a great experience and a day won't ever forget. I love you Cinta & Litcelle :)

I told him and he was like "why didn't you tell me you were going out when I asked you". Haha. I said, 'cause it's more fun to take risk when involves getting in trouble :P

Here are some pix:

Twilight

I am still busy with school. I barely have time to have my own free time. I don't know why, but I actually enjoy doing homework. When we have lectures in class, it seems so easy and yet I learn a lot! I think I am more relaxed with my classes but the stress is going to be kicking back in soon.

Freshmens are having trouble with starting a fun raiser and designing the shirts. Somewhat, I don't really want to contribute with it because they sort of treat me like dirt. I am sorry, but I don't like going to meetings and feeling like I'm useless in it.

It seems like some of the freshmens haven't gotten over their junior high behaviors. They still act so immature and childish. I know people will still gossip but gosh, have some gratitude and show some respect to people. If you have something to say, keep it to yourself. We don't want drama in high school, especially in one of the best high schools in the CNMI.

I finally started reading the book Twilight. The book that everyone read except for me! I want to read it quick but I always have homework to do and no time for reading. Anyway, I'll probably post a book report about it when I'm done. So be patient.

Thank G, we have a 4 day weekend coming up. I want to relax and have fun with my friends. I miss my friends from MHS and KHS! Hope to see you guys soon =)

A new week in a new school..

Alright, well no. I am not going to be posting up blogs for everyday I have at Southern. I'm just sharing my first days experiences. Well today was when we got started with everything.

JROTC- We got into our PL, did some drills, and met our CO's and SGTs. Algebra 1- We divided into groups of 4 and did a quiz on pre-algebra. I was with my Sophomore friends and may I tell you. They had her last year and yet they didn't answer one darn question. We didn't finish our quiz because I was the only one effortlessly trying to get it down while they were talking. If only the quiz was individual, I'd be taking credit for my own work.
World History- Did a warm up of 8-12 questions. We all had different questions and we had to use resources that were in class to answer them, such as: atlas, dictionary, encyclopedia, and almanac. We've got homework! Current event one page essay and it's due on Friday (must be read to class)! English Pre Honor- We did our first vocabulary work, while doing that Mr. Muira played Hawaiian music videos! They were hilarious!

Tomorrow, I've gotta get my textbooks, four of them! Darn it!

Oh yes, some updates: I'm sorry but yes our break is 30 minutes. Break is actually 15 minutes but they included another 15 minutes for prep time.

Freshmen Officer: I decided that I will not run for officer this year. Though, I promised my fellow classmates that are running, that I will be helping them out if needed. This is my last and only year at Southern, I want to focus on my work and stick with what I do best. Running for office might ruin my priorities, though I am still a proud member of the S.A.V.E. Club. I will be devoting myself to that but my Freshmen class activities will only be for extra purposes.

Sunday, August 5, 2007

Should I or should I not?

Alright, so first day of school Mr. Muira's ask us if anyone wanted to run for Freshmen class officer. Who ever runs has to fill out an application, write an essay, and get 100 signatures from freshmens. It's like a pre-vote nomination thing then after is the real elections.

Now, people from my 4th period want me to run.. Should I? ..and run for what? What am I really good at? Is it too much to handle? Being the president of S.A.V.E. and trying to start S.A.V.E. at Southern then also being a class officer? Now, you tell me.

Friday, August 3, 2007

Mylene is a Freshmen? Oh yes!

Like what I did for my first days for 7th, 8th, and now 9th grade.. I picked up Jessica from her house (even though she lives at Koblerville already). I insist on picking her up so that I won't be lost walking around by myself. So I guess, this time. We both were walking around together alone. It was so sad, well not until my friend Christine, a junior called my name. Before I turned, I heard someone say "not ashame" and I knew immediately that it was Jay. So I was like "hey" then gave him a hugged. First hug of the day! Lol. Then I walked to Christine and gave her a hug. Not even 5 minutes later, the bell rings and we were off to first period, JROTC.

SGT M. Kiyoshi and other CO's introduce themselves. Kiyoshi talks for the whole period. Wow, must I tell you. There are so many rules! So much to learn. I was thinking to myself, "can I handle it? Whoa, this is going to be a long semester!" Lol. Bell rings and we were off to second period, Algebra 1. Ah! It turns out that Jessica & I both have algebra one for that period but are in different classes, so sad.. She had to go to her class :(. Darn, my algebra teacher is so straight up to the point. Right away, she just takes attendance and gives us hand outs. Makes us read it to ourselves then gives us our first class work, one thing I haven't learned yet.. A Sudoku. What a pain, she only explained how to do it for less than 5 minutes and we were on our own. I didn't finish mine, most of the class didn't and she collected them after doing it for 30 minutes. Then she gives us a second one to take home for home work. I don't think I'm going to enjoy her class this year.. but just in case, I'm going to try to change my class!

After 2nd, we have break. Just to let everyone know, our break is 15 minutes. It is not 30 minutes! Alright, so I get out of class.. I walk around for 2 minutes by myself trying to look for Jessica. I looked like a loner! It was so sad! So instead, I decided to walk to my 3rd period. While I was walking there, Jove spots me. I was like "thank god, I'm not alone anymore!". We stayed in between the A and B building.. In front of the vending machine! Lol. Wow, then here comes some freshmens! Lol. Jessica finds me! We all asked each others schedules then said this and that. Next is 3rd. I have Mrs. Rasa, I'm sorry but she talks so much and so fast! She says that we will be doing a lot of talking in her class. Sometimes I like that, but I get shy around people I don't know. Half of my class are freshmens then the rest are juniors and seniors. For our first task, we had to go up to the board write down 5 things and one out of the five had to be a false statement about ourselves. A junior got mine right, hmm.. I wonder how she knew! She doesn't even know me, pretty creepy!

Off to lunch.. Jessica & I follow Alyssa to Mr. Tudela's class. The class had three groups.. Cindy (my sophomore friend) and her friends. The bumba squad and NHS students (my junior friends). Then there was my group, the freshmen sonics and sixers spot with 4 girls! Lol. I am friends with everyone that was in Mr. T's class but I decided to stay with the freshmens! They are so funny, I had an awesome time. I think that'll be our spot for lunch. Others that Jessica & I might consider spotting at, is at the Caf. or at Mr. Muira's class (my English pre honors teacher, 4th period). Jessica's sister is pretty much buddy buddy with him and it looks like Jessica and I will too. Now time for 4th period.. I absolutely love my classmates and plus my teacher. It is all with the smartest freshmen kids. I'm pretty sure it will be a bit competitive with all of the smart kids but I think we will all be really good friends. Ah! I love you guys already!

My first day of as a high school student was really fun. Southern fo' sure, is the best school in the CNMI. We rock! Haha. GO MANTAS =)

HIGH SCHOOL!

The day has finally come. I have 13 more hours 'till my 1st period starts! I'm not so nervous anymore! I got my schedule, met some of my teachers, and hung out at my 4th period class for a few hours! Okay, I'm too excited.. here is my schedule:

1st: JROTC 1 (1) Rabago, Leonardo
2nd: Algebra 1 (9) Aniciente, Janet Guiao
3rs: World History (3) Rasa, Michelle S
4th: English 9 Pre Honor (1) Miura, Paul

I already know a few of my classmates but yo, tell me if we have the same class :)

Yeah, I was planning on wearing flip flops to school but Sgt. Kiyoshi told me to wear shoes. He said that saying about "the first impression". Aidai! But hey, I'm actually really happy with my classes. Haha, know why? 'Cause I changed 2 of them!

..Guess what?! Jessica & I have the same schedule, meaning every class :). Okay, so we started out having 1 same class. Then the first time I changed it, it became 2. I really didn't wanna take computer application, so I changed it a second time and it turned out that we are classmates for all our classes. Haha! So cool =)

Well Jessica & I are going to be inseparable this semester. We have all our classes together then I'm going to her place every after school. Haha! Well, we both know for a fact that we will soon be sick of each other, but we love each other. We both know that it is going to be my last year on Saipan so it's probably good that we are always together. It builds are friendship and we know that in the future that no matter where we are, we will always be the best of friends.

This year, I'm planning big things for myself. I want this year to be the best and most memorable year I have at Saipan ('cause it's my last). But yes, I just hope this school year, there will be less drama! I'm planning on really focusing on my school work. And also, stay away from bad boys that will mess me up and distract me. I'm growing up, I wanna act like a young adult in the making :). Aren't you proud of me? Lol.

Ahhh. I'm so glad I got my schedule. I'm not nervous anymore, I'm just so happy! Can't wait for tomorrow. I'll tell you how it goes on a next post.. Yay! Love you guys =)
