Time and again I guess I will be saying this to you, I’m back! That’s still better I guess when really, I can’t maintain this whole blogging. With such demanding academic schedule mixed with train of unfortunate events, I just can’t.
Again, I’m doing this not more likely for my readers (if there are) but for myself. Or I would just like to pretend that there were at least people who happened to pass by my page and care. And when they saw it for almost two months now without any update, ask what happened.
What a shit it would be if after with such drama I had with the first part of this post I’ll just say nothing much transpired with me during those idle time.
Again, I have all my right to pretend that you care.
THE GREAT FLOODS: Well, aside from the Habagat downpour that took Manila by storm (by flood actually), any heavy rain is now seen to affect UST and nearby places regularly. Darn the government, it’s been our problem for epochs now! I got stranded again, classes were suspended, schedules were ruined.
THE UAAP CHEERDANCE COMPETITION: Before the competition proper, we first watched the Tiger Pep Rally. Judging their performance, our spirit for grabbing back the title went down but nevertheless hoped and prayed for the best until the very last minute. As everyone knows by now, UST-SDT placed fourth for second straight year. Needless to say, we are still proud of UST. We did not watch it live though, the ticket selling of MOA Arena was such an epic failure! Congrats UP!
THE UAAP BASKETBALL FINALS: Even before Season 75 started, sports analysts have counted out the Growling Tigers AGAIN! And yet, we (i always use the pronoun) did not only made it to the Final 4, we made it to the FINALS! Did I mention we queue for more than three hours just to buy tix for Game 2? And another 2 hours to get inside the Araneta! haha, small sacrifice as support to the team! As I’ve said before call it “tsamba” or whatever, we left everyone in awe and proved, yet again, the doubters wrong! We may not be able to snatch the title but the whole Thomasian community has shown tremendous support and the whole team feels like the same! Congrats Ateneo, I already moved on! :)
THE FINAL EXAMINATIONS WEEK: Alongside the UAAP Basketball Finals, we had our own fight academically. Mine went well, I’d like to believe. Grades will be out soon and I’m hoping that I’ll get what I worked for.
ENCHANTED KINGDOM GETAWAY: This trip was planned long time ago but turned out to be unplanned. I wasn’t prepared at all! It’s always good to unwind after the tiring week of Final Exams let alone to be with friends I haven’t gone out with for a long time. Endline, we had fun.
Of course, behind the curtains are the drama I opt not to mention. I want this entry to feel just right.
I got happy and sad. That makes me normal. Epiphany, but consequently still leaving me confused. Doubts, despite the proof presented. Longing, after seeing you everyday. T’was roller coaster.
Lastly, I just finished reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which really made me sad. The good sad.
I always have fun reading the incoming college freshmen’s predicament, issues, etc., especially those who will be future Thomasians. This wasn’t the same during 2008 yknow! haha
Well guys, I will be happy to answer your questions if you have one especially regarding the Faculty of Engineering and Chemical Engineering Department. Don’t worry, I won’t crush your idealism, that’s just so soon! hahaha
Companies to go to for my OJT? Not my problem! Modesty aside, I had a handful for myself to choose from, and that I would have to turn down the others. It wasn’t just fed to me, I worked for them all: Nestle, Coca-Cola, and finally, Unilever! I deserved the damn opportunities because, boy, I know how to chase them! But life never forgets to give me my share of problems. Need not be told, they’re finances, yet again! I always asked why don’t it give me a break?! You know, I feel like I don’t deserve such and that those people who didn’t believe in me, I also feel that they are still dragging me down. But I shall not falter, He always backed me up, and always will! I can prove them wrong and slap their faces with my success. One step at a time, I will hurdle this off, and I can pay those who people whom I owe.
Carry on, Chal, you will do great! You know you will go places!
