Rec Week has cometh. Being an overeager freshie with eyes set on spreading my wings and social horizons beyond my TA/AM block, English 11/Lit 13 block, Physics 2 groupmates and my high school friends I kind of went wild with the orgs. I think my sister’s advice, “It’s important to join orgs so you can meet people with similar interests and you won’t be surrounded by idiots...
Yesterday had the potential to be a very good day. I had free cuts for both my 7:30 and 8:30 classes, so I guess I was one of the first to come up to see the RecWeek shindig. There were banners to ogle at, giveaways to collect, and overly eager upperclassmen (one of them told me I had the air of a pre-med student) to dodge. There was a guy wearing a Pi costume with the words “Don’t eat me”...
Dear people I follow:
Could you all kindly please turn on your “reply” function so I can comment on your entries without having to reblog them, saving all of us the dashboard buildup and the world of trouble?
I didn't like this day
I dressed up in a summery outfit expecting heat, but it rained. I was wearing shorts and sandals. My sandals and feet ended up soaked with puddle water. Because I was a bit confused as to where exactly jeepney drivers drop off people intending to stop at Philcoa, I didn’t say “para” at my designated stop. I went all the way to TriNoma, lengthening my commuting time by around 30...
I hate it when
people send me group messages that are more often than not formatted like this: I’m fighting for you even if I’m the only one putting in effort…(Obligatory quote hinting on sender’s love life) Oh my God, my feet hurt so much, I walked from ADMU to Gateway! (A blurb that would have been more appropriate as a Tweet or as a Facebook status) EDDIE, JUANMA, AARON - I...
I still don't understand
the ‘Make a wish at 11:11’ thing. Aren’t wishes supposed to just happen for extremely rare occasions like a meteor shower or going on a pilgrimage to see the Pink Sisters? The rarity limit has to be annually, for birthdays. 11:11 happens everyday. You can’t have a wish everyday. That’s so selfish. If something requires that much divine help, can’t you just light...
Belay: Lakers ka ba?
Boma (Belay's "guy friend"): Ugh, natalo ko sa bet ng block namin.
Belay: Did you watch the finals?
Boma: No, may class kami sa Math nun. Daya mo nga e, nasa bahay ka lang, nanonood. Natalo pa Boston!
Me: You're watching basketball during the World Cup? Besides, green always loses.
Belay: Yeah, laging Ateneo nananalo sa UAAP e.
Boma: Hindi kaya. Maraming beses na rin nanalo ang La Salle.
Me: Technically, you're studying in an NCAA school, not UAAP, so why are we arguing about this?
Ang freakkkyyyy. Walang geek samin. They’re all….hipstery.– Vicky on her blockmates in Ateneo
Today's blog entry from an intelligent rich snob,...
Today I was in UP visiting some friends when we bumped into another Theresian now studying in UP who received my Atenean status with a contemptuous side-eye like I was some sort of elitist bee-otch and reacted to my school and course with a resounding “yuck.” Now, you might say she might have just been poking fun at me, but I didn’t take it that way. We were in the same clique...
To put a period
on my first week in college, and here I am with my blockmates flooding the Rizal Lib Information Commons computers with our Internet crap, along with the rest of the student population who I think basically just come here to supplement their net addictions even while in school. Like, really, everyone here is using Facebook. Even the guy in the front desk who’s supposedly in charge or...
I’ve reached my entire social quota for the entire week. My poor introverted self is honestly just so tired. Which is weird and surprising (okay, not really) because my first week is only a tester three-day week. And I’ve only gotten through two days so far. Oh my god. How am I going to last a full, five-day week? Why do people expect me to talk so much? I swear I didn’t talk...
The hand of gods, or Karma
I have this problem with ungracefully accepting corrections from people when I know it in my heart (as well as by Googling and fact-checking) that I’m right. Like this one time in Third Year, when my History teacher said that I couldn’t pronounce route as /root/, it had to be /rowt/. But I just knew /root/ is an acceptable pronunciation for route as well, because how many times did...
Obligatory post-OrSem entry
I feel so pressured to have some gigantic entry about the OrSem and my experiences and blah blah blah but I can’t really be bothered by it right now because so many things happened in the span of 3.5 days and the event itself was so fucking insane, I mean there were upperclassmen in matching shirts jumping around, screaming, dancing atop chairs to Charice’s “Pyramid” in...
I always mix up hatid and sundo. I say things like “I-hatid mo ko pauwi” all the time. An English word I always mess up is the word platonic. I mix up the meanings of “platonic” and “non-platonic”, which as you can imagine, can lead to very embarrassing situations
