Where can you find me at 2pm on a Thursday? If you guessed by the pool being fed peeled grapes by the Swedish bikini team, you'll be surprised to hear that you're wrong.
No, really. You're wrong... At least this Thursday.
Actually, my friend Hayden.. WAIT... this is an important but totally unrelated sidenote :
On Turning Into Black And White
Okay, so I was able to enlist for my classes this summer, and I'm proud to say that I was able to get one of the legends for Fil14 in Ateneo: Michael Coroza. FINALLY. I've been looking forward to getting him as one of my professors since my previous Filipino professor discussed one of his works in class. So anyways, I'm really excited to go back to school. I miss the stress and the feeling of actually doing something instead of just lying around the house (I'll miss having the time to read comics though) and trying not to fall asleep all the time or eat too much. I miss my friends too. I miss going on adventures with my blockmates, like using McDonald's drive thru then eating in the school parking lot with the windows down and singing to John Lennon. I miss studying with my friends and falling asleep and dancing around just to wake up. And I miss making bacon pancakes.
I never knew college would be this fun. Coming from a strict Catholic school and having overprotective parents, I was used to being alone since I wasn't allowed to go out. I'm comfortable with staying up in my room while all my friends are out together. But I also like having people I'm close to around me; new territory scares me. I'm not good at making new friends and I always feel the fear creeping up when I try. So far, I've made the most wonderful (not to mention the craziest) friends I could have made in college, and I thank God for not leaving me alone. Aside from friends, I was also able to join a great org wherein we serve the less fortunate kids by teaching them every Saturday and hosting programs and activities both for the kids and as fundraisers.. For the kids. "Social Justice Through Education" is what we fight for.
Anyways, I can't wait to go back to school. I can't wait to see all the people I've grown to love and care for. I can't wait to study and feel stressed again, but know that it's worth it in the end.
