It's Summer time!
Believe me, the best way to maximize this season is to try out different extra- curricular activities out there (instead of bumming around).
If you're looking for something really interesting, fun, and unique to do, I got to say, you need to try shooting at The Archery Academy in Greenhills.
When I was invited to have a trial session, I really had no high expectations. I have some friends who play archery and they would tell me about the sports all the time but I never really got interested with it until...
I tried it first hand.
Yay! My arrow in action was captured haha
Because it was my first time to try out the sports, Coach Gio Endaya patiently gave me an orientation about all the necessary information and instructions I needed to know and take note of.
It was really challenging at first but after several trials (and errors), I eventually got the hang of it.
Trivia: Aside from Coach Gio, there are 2 more partners who make up the team behind The Archery Academy- Rica Tai and Rachelle Sison.
Super small world ~I met Rica when I joined the student council in my college back when I was a freshie kid and fun fun fact, (Ma'am) Rachelle Sison WAS MY PROF. She's really young but really successful. She was my teacher for feasibility class (our college's version of thesis class) last semester and she inspired us to pursue entrepreneurship- definitely one of my favorite subjects in my whole college life in UP Diliman.
To make the experience more memorable, I invited my London-based best friend Alyanna, 
who's on a vacation in the country to play with me (she's so athletic haha)
Once I started shooting properly, I couldn't stop playing... ahhhh :))
Why did I try this sports just now... *regrets* 
Well, it's not yet too late, isn't it?
What's more amazing about The Archery Academy is that they make the whole experience more fun and memorable
