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 all the time, giving you time to air off the urge to murder anyone,” is a huge factor to this. Because as lovely as my blockmates are, I’d like to have conversations with people who don’t think my Warhol Mao pin is Cory Aquino with pink lipstick on. (Seriously, Miko?)
So anyway, here are the orgs I plan on joining by the end of this week:
- Ateneo Literary Society (LitSoc) — Basically, books and free coffee.
- Development Society of Ateneo (DevSoc) — Because I’m legitimately interested in These Sort of Things even if I suspect I’ll be the only freshman and the only non-Development Studies major to sign up. They had me at Gender Equality.
- The Guidon — Our college newspaper. I’m trying out for the Inquiry and News sections. I hope I get in. :| I may have to steal Jay Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” from my sister’s playlist by June 19 when the try-outs results come out.
- The Assembly — A politics org that also falls under my legitimate interest in These Sort of Things. That’s my frustrated inner debater speaking.
Is four a bit much? Yes? No? I’m not really worried. Save for Guidon, I don’t think the other orgs are the time-eating, go-home-at-11-pm sort.
And besides, Vicky, that bitch, told me I had the luxury to overload orgs seeing as I’m a Humanities major with loads of free time.
Okay, girl. Whatever.
