This PAS event is going to be on Saturday, and more than ten of us in our organization (UPLB AstroSoc) are gonna be attending. I am very excited with the lectures; Erika Valdueza of theskyabove22 will be one of them. I totally adore her and her knowledge and passion in astronomy. Just so you know, Ate Erika and I have been chatting through Y! Messenger before we finally met. It was like an eyeball back then (June 2010, I think? lol) Memories.

Going back, aside from the lectures, I’m gonna be seeing my Astro-friends again whom I met in Baguio last Summer. Yiee~ excited! The Baguio trip was the Level 1, Part 1 of the PASCEP. I will try my very best to complete this education program despite my jam-packed schedule.
