It's that time of the year when our beloved school holds the annual Scientists In Motion for the opening of our Science Month. Since we are from Manila Science High School, every year the presentations just get weirder and weirder in a totally good way. Basically, each section (named after a scientist) brings back their scientist from the dead or in Townes' case, from the hospital or something haha, to talk about themselves for a bit and tell everyone what they contributed to the world of science as well as their most famous quote.
I'm part of III - Calvin who was one of the 5 who proposed the Calvin Cycle. I didn't really pay much attention in last year's Biology class so I'm no expert in that hahaha. All we know is that it's part of the processes inside the plant and that there are light and dark reactions and so on and so forth. Since we almost fell asleep just by thinking about how boring it is, we decided to have fun and add zombies to the mix!
Little by little, we hatched a plan quite parallel to that of Plants VS. Zombies. Mixed with a bit of some Michael Jackson goodness in the form of Thriller heehee!
After the first Friday mass, we ran to our homeroom (which is in the 4th floor btw huhu) and immediately slipped into our costumes and got our make up done. The most fun part about dressing up as a zombie is being utterly messy. Ughhh we had so much fun taking turns bloody-ing up each other and not to mention slathering our faces with Strawberry syrup!

After loitering a bit, we went up to our homeroom and we were just about to relax and all when we were told that we were gonna have our Social Studies class..We checked our worksheets and had a quiz on the Rise of the Roman Empire since we're like the latest of all the lates in the world because we missed 2 weeks of meetings.
|My sneakers heeeeehoooo|

After hanging out, we went back to the homeroom for the nth time that day and fixed the banner because we decided to hang it in our homeroom wee.
We then had a photo shoot with the banner because we were just so darn happy aaaaaaaaaand we weren't simply in the mood to use our noodles for serious business hehe.
Scientists In Motion was a huge blast for real. I had so much fun and I really really feel gay about Calvin right now hehe. All the nights we stayed up til 7 just practicing and fooling around for were definitely worth it. We might be the partial winner for now, and I know winning would be the most amazing thing ever but (I'm about to go all cheesy gooey now) I'm so so happy already and I feel like I've already won hehe because hehe you guys hehe are my hehe classmates hehe. I love you III - Calvin hehe.
