13- New room, new roommates. Some of our mistahs were not able to survive academics and had to leave PMA, so to even up our class numbers per company, some were transferred to other barracks and re-rooming were implemented. Transferring my stuffs was a hassle but the real challenge there was getting along with a new set of people and learning to deal with each of them.

14- Non-academic. We usually had our meals served inside barracks when the mess hall was prepared and used for another activity or there's a duty that required urgency. It's actually an advantage to both cadets and mess hall personnel. We didn't need to prepare for the day's uniform and they had lesser things to clean.
15- Being in Baguio City, we were also observing their holidays like the Cordillera Day. Like other universities, we also didn't have classes during those times. However, we're still not exempted to do other duties and responsibilities, sometimes even more strenuous than having a class. The good thing was we could do stuffs like laundry, ironing and other preparations in a longer vacant time as this.
20- It was the start of the intramurals, and same as last year, the opening ceremony was held, and with the cheering competition as the starting event. Though others had new stunts and chants, still a lot were "vault files" or heard and seen performances. Relying on the previous learned stuffs passed from class after class and/or introduced stuffs from neophytes cadets, the later being unlikely. LOL.

23-31- Typhoon prone. Storm signals weren't new to us. It seemed like every storm that passed the country, never failed to visit or affect Baguio City. I was already thinking if it's just a coincidence that the city's name sounds like "bagyo" (tagalog for storm). We were hit by 2 typhoons, Gloria and Herb, with just almost a week apart. Though some of our activities were affected like cancelled corps drill and Saturday inspections, but the guarding and other duties like academics were not affected. Since even if it floods and unlike other students, cadets' academic building was just a walk away. Lucky for us, we never stopped learning. hahaha... Yahweh bless.
