It's finals week, the last strings I have to pull for this term and are very crucial in making the decision to an impending confession. This is an entirely complicated, irrational and scary story so I won't delve into it. Not until i've resolved it anyway. Let me say my first line again. It's finals week. I'm supposed to be dedicating my weekend and the entire week to studying. Like how 'supposed-to-happen' things always end up being just what should be done but wasn't done stuff, I wasn't able to study nor even just squeeze one lesson in my brain. My two hyper active cousins, Caoume and Elijah, took all the time that I reserved for myself. Have I mentioned that I'm not really someone to be left in charge with kids? I don't really hate them but I don't like them either. I'm too childish to pass for an adult so I don't trust myself when it comes to handling kids. My first cousins though, I am too charmed by them that I'm willing to do and give anything and everything just to make them laugh. Yup, I'm biased. Haven't I mentioned that as well before?
Saturday. I spent my entire day playing with the two kids. Caoume said that Elijah speaks 'Iggy' words and that she's the only one who can understand it. Elijah kept on mumbling words at me. At one point Caoume blurted out in her super cute innocent and accented voice, "Ate Gellie, Elijah says he likes you". From that moment on, I knew I'm hooked with them.
Sunday. The entire Valle family went to Quezon province. We arrived in Manila around 12 midnight.

Monday. My exam started at 8. I slept around 2am the previous night cause I couldn't really go into the battlefield (exam room) without even just shining my armor with the right amount of shine. I was sleep-deprived so I overslept. I arrived in school quarter to 9. After my exam, I headed for where my cousins were staying.
Note: Something came over me during these three days. My camera and I weren't buddies for some reason. There could have been moooore pictures if I didn't leave it behind.
