Daniela: Been there, still there. I feel you. MAINIT NGA. Unfortunately, we can't control the weather. If you have the time and the ride, why don't you gather your friends or your family and head to a nearby beach? Or plan something before the summer ends and go to a farther beach, province, or maybe even out of the country, just for an adventure and to get the heat out of your mind. If you have a pool in your house or in your village, take advantage of it and go swim. It'll help.
Anna: WELCOME TO THE PHILIPPINES. Anyways, to survive the heat without making your parents/grandparents mad because they don't want to use the air conditioner, here are a few tips. Loose clothing is your best friend. Ice packs are your best friends too. Take a bath a lot. Sleep. While sleeping, you can go ahead and sleep Egyptian style by covering yourself with a damp blanket (x). If the heat hasn't made you a super sloth, go make some home-made ice cream or Popsicles!
Daniela: I'm sorry you didn't get the internship. A lot of similar situations will come up in the future when you're already applying for a job. No matter how experienced and deserving you are of a certain position, some companies will turn you down for their own reasons and hey, that's perfectly okay. As cliche as it may seem: when one door closes, a lot of windows will open for you. Maybe the right company is somewhere out there and you just have to look harder. (Parang love........) As for those who assured you of getting in, well, there's nothing really to do other than to tell them the truth. If you lie about getting in, they'll find out eventually and maybe that'll cause embarrassment for you.
Anna: First, you have to accept the fact that you didn't get in. It hurts, yeah, but no matter how much you dwell on it you won't magically get an email or letter saying that it was a mistake that they didn't accept you. They have their reasons and it's better to not try to figure out what those reasons are or else it will drive you insane. And it's perfectly alright to be rejected! After accepting the truth, go distract yourself. You have a million other things to do than be so glum about this. If you aren't so busy, surround yourself with fulfilling activities like volunteer work or cleaning your whole house. Lastly, give it some time. Time will be the ultimate remedy to this. Give yourself a few weeks or months to let this rejection settle in your system. You know you're over it when you look back at it and you'd either shrug or laugh it off.
