Backpacking Day 6: Good Friday Chill from Quirino to Nueva Ecija
I tell you, today is a whole-day commute day.
We woke up really early only to find out that everything within Quirino, even transportation services, were closed in observance of Good Friday.
So, Pia and I decided to go to Nueva Ecija instead when, luckily, a van from Quirino passed by to bring us to Nueva Vizcaya. Then, from Nueva Vizcaya, we rode a bus to Nueva Ecija. It was a 12-hour ride again, cutting from one trip to another in a really packed bus due to limited vehicles.
We were able to ride a van that had no other passengers as well. Good thing that the driver smokes so we agreed to smoke while on the ride. With my earphones on, it felt like so summer. Haha. We were also able to ride a minibus with just the two of us inside, so, photo time! Yey!
Upon reaching Gen. Tinio, Nueva Ecija, Pia and I saw this cool lodge called Wheel’s Inn where the rooms were like horse stables plus the price is pretty affordable.
We had realized that the last time we ate was at 7 in the morning, and it was 11 in the evening already so we tried touring around the city but again, everything was closed. Last resort: 7-Eleven.
season 10 is really returning to a lot of the things that made seasons 1-5 so good. whilst seasons 6/7 were good they lacked a lot of the optimism that made doctor who such a positive experience and seasons 8/9 were frankly a train wreck with only a few good episodes. hopefully season 10 will only improve as it continues !
while i disagree about s8+s9 i agree that so far s10 is revisiting many successful themes that weren’t as prevalent in most of moffat’s era (not necessarily a bad thing - obviously i love moffat’s era - just a different thing) so it feels like a refreshing breath of new air and yes i’m definitely looking forward to what the future will bring!!

·Alphas are the dominant or “masculine” ones in omegaverse
·They are generally large and at least slightly intimidating in appearance
·They possess what is commonly referred to as an “Alpha Voice” which is basically a very commanding tone that Omegas, and sometimes Betas, feel compelled to obey
·Alphas also have a “Croon” which is like a deep rumbling sound (basically a purr) that helps to calm or comfort their Omega or their pups
·"Ruts" are a biological thing that Alphas go through and during a rut they will be easily agitated and extremely horny because their body wants them to knot and breed
·A “Knot” is kind of like a bulb type thing in an Alpha’s penis that swells when they are aroused and keeps them locked inside their Omega during sex to increase chances of getting the Omega pregnant, this is called “Knotting”
·All Alphas are able to impregnate people, but only a female Alpha can get pregnant because male Alphas don’t have a womb
·Female Alphas are often described as having both a penis and a vagina or having a clitoris that extends into one when they are aroused so they can impregnate people
·Omegas are the submissive or “feminine” ones of the dynamics
·They are generally small, maybe delicate, and feminine in appearance
·Omegas can use their pheromones to effect others, whether it be by calming their child or arousing their Alpha
·"Heats" are a biological thing that Omegas go through and during a heat an Omega will self lubricate (usually referred to as “Slick”) in order to prepare to take an Alphas knot
·Omegas are most fertile during heats and they crave an Alpha’s knot because their body is demanding for them to breed
·When an Omega is in heat is usually the best time for an Alpha to “Bond” with them
·"Bonding" is achieved by biting into a scent gland hard enough to draw blood and eventually scar, it ties two people together mentally, physically, and emotionally. Like, a really extreme marriage
·During heats, pregnancies or any other stressful times, an Omega will “Nest”
·"Nesting" is a process in which an Omega craves warmth and comfort so they will choose a small space, like a closet, and gather blankets, pillows, clothing, anything soft really and especially anything with their Alpha’s scent on it and build a nest to cuddle up in
·"Scenting" is the process of someone spreading their own unique scent onto things or people in an act of comfort or possession
·People in omegaverse usually have four “Scent Glands” two on the neck and one on each wrist. When the glands are stimulated their scent becomes more potent and sticks to whatever or whoever is closest
·Both male and female Omegas can get pregnant and while it is possible for a male Omega to get a female Omega pregnant, a female Omega can’t impregnate anyone
·"Mpreg" male pregnancy, the only males that can pregnant in omegaverse though are Omegas
·Betas are basically like normal humans, in omegaverse they are below Alphas but still above Omegas
·Betas can have any kind of appearance, there isn’t really a set expectation for them
·They don’t go through ruts or heats but they can still bond
·They tend to mate with other Betas
·Betas usually have a better sense of smell than the other dynamics
·Like normal humans, male Betas cannot get pregnant and female Betas cannot impregnate anyone
Phil uploaded a video last night, telling a story of a terrifying incident […] where he basically got assaulted by a personal trainer. It wasn’t good. So like we’ve joined the gym again, and what Phil wanted was like an exercise plan, so that if he’s gonna go to the gym for like half an hour and few times a week, what’s like the best thing he could do for his time? […] Maybe somebody, you know, that’s got like qualifications can tell you what’s a really good thing to do with your time. So he called up the gym, and I was there, and he spent so long on the phone saying to somebody, ’I want somebody, a personal trainer, to give me an exercise plan. I mainly want to like run and cycle and stuff, teach me how to use the machines, that’s all I want.’
