Get to know my roommates

I started moving into Davao City when September of this year neared to its ending, primarily because of the extensive review in preparation for the Nurse Licensure Exam (NLE).

Finding a probable dormitory was never a difficult task, as two of my friends had already canvassed the place. The only problem was that there had been a seemingly lack of available room. The good thing, however, was that the second floor which supposedly for office purposes was given to us to live in one of the rooms there for two months. And we, seven boys and girls, had to stay in one room; it was a large, well-ventilated one anyway.

But two months came too soon, that in the blink of an eye we found ourselves taking the NLE and one by one leaving the dormitory to go back to our respective homes. Surely we will be missing one another, the highs and lows in our dormitory lives living in one roof, one room.

Here goes Room 202's inhabitants:

So there you have the list of my roommates, with their unique characteristics and peculiarities. And before I end this post, here is our official game, which apparently had been the focus of our free time since installed in Marc's laptop to catch up with the current top scores rather than reading our Nursing books we have at the room:


chuzzle deluxe

You gotta try this game! This is chock full of little, cute, googly-eyed balls of fur that pops when placed to balls of same color (three or more) .
