Commuting Is A Battlefield.
First Day Jitters
HELLO! First day of college life todaaayy!
OMG. I can feel it. MAHABANG KWENTUHAN 'TO.
Sorry? :D But I can't help it guys.
Let's all be realistic. This is the best chance I've got to tell you all my kwentos if I can't do so personally right?
As much as I'd want to see all of you and talk gibberish-nonsense (parehas lang yun) about how my first day went, it's hard to keep in touch that way sooo...FB MESSAGE!
Anyway, where shall I start? I have two days' worth of story. :D
First is the campus tour which I had with Maxine and Fatima last Monday, 9am.
FAMI AND I TALKED OF LEAVING OUR HOUSES AT 7:15am AND MY PHONE ALARMED AT 6am. BUT GUESS WHAT? I FELL ASLEEP AND ENDED UP WAKING AT 7:15AM INSTEAD.
I made it though so, no problem there. :D
Fami and I went to UP together and when we arrived there, the group we were going to have a tour with were playing a game. Adjective that starts with letter of your name, and then, your name. :))
AMAZING AIEN. Joke.
I said Approachable Aien. :))
Pa-friendly effect ako.
Afterwards, we rode the bus. WAW DIBA. MAY BUS SA UP! -Especially for us Freshmen! Hahaha. Kidding. The "tour guides" were hilarious.
We went around the campus with them pointing to the buildings and naming what they were.
It wasn't helpful for me though...or maybe I just wasn't concentrating and listening to it hard enough.
After the tour which only took about an hour, Fami, Maxine and I went to the registration building to pay for our ID photo. IT'S NOT PART OF THE FREAKIN' TUITON FEE. Why??
The line wasn't that long but, it wasn't short either. :p
Moving on...the three of us decided to "tour" the campus by ourselves. Trying to find our respective buildings and all.
WE ALWAYS WALKED. NO MATTER HOW FAR THE BUIDLING WAS. Except for the Math Bldg. which was far but...though we intially planned to walk, we took a jeepney becuase I hailed (sp?) it. HEE. Sinong tamad?
But come on! The sweltering heat?
It was funny 'cause the AA people were all together and it wasn't even planned.
Here's how it happened:
After Max, Fami, and I went to the OUR bldg, I met up with Ara to give her back something I borrowed for the summer (Loveless Saturn!). She was with Iya P., Denise O., and Rona Marquez. We met up in Casaa (food court like room/bldg).
So, we were all seated on one table. HEE. And then we spotted Ms. Babeth and some other AA teacher who were both finishing their masters I guess? They have THESIS daw. asdfghjkl. Anyway...moving on.
Suddenly, while we were all together, I spot Jana San Diego, Brittany Francsico, Jessica dela Cruz, and Alyana Raymundo entering Casaa so...like the crazy-friendly people AA students are, we waved our hands in the air. :))
Kidding. So there, they joined us. And we occupied 3 tables there and it was just like our AA caf.
Old times, baby, old times. :))
So ayun. Walk-tour-intiated-by-ourselves ulet.
OH AND BY THE WAY.
When Maxine, Fami and I were on our way to Casaa, a freakin' banana leaf (or a tree leaf that looked just like that) FELL ON MY HEAD. IT REALLY HIT MY HEAD.
Wow, thanks a lot Mother Nature, you really love me. Don't worry, I'm noticing you 'cause you're everywhere and it's seriously like a jungle here.
So, fast forward to first day. HEE.
Sorry, I know that was long already but...PLEASE??? HIHI.
Anyway, first day. I woke up and left on time.
Actually, I was pretty early! :D (Look who's proud).
I met up with Ara and Janine in Petron (9pa class ni Janine pero sumama na siya sa'min). Ara and I have our first class, Comm 3, together, at 8:30am.
We rode the jeep until that building. It's a nice one! :) And went to our room which only had more or less 5 students at the mean time. (The other's haven't arrived yet.)
I was noisy. HEHEHE.
I talked to the whole class sort of. 'Cause the ceiling fans were open but this floor fan wasn't. So I'm like, "buksan ko na ha. HEHEHE." Joke. I dunno. They didn't look at me badly at least so...it's all good I guess. I didn't make friends YET as much as Ara and I were tempted too. HEE.
And then, after a while. A girl with cropped colred hair came in. I NOTICE HER. Then...I guess she noticed me too. So she approached us and I'm like "Ate Patty!" (with a matching wave of my hand). HAHAHAHA.
So, yep. We're all classmates.
30 mins past 8:30, THE PROF ISN'T AROUND YET. And Ate Patty's like "we can leave already." (30-mintue-if-prof-doesn't-arrive-you-can-leave-now-and-do-whatever-you-want rule). And then Ara and I, being the scared shitless Freshmen that we are, didn't go with her. :))
We left soon afterwards though realizing it was pointless to stay.
We went to Palma hall to look for my next class' schedule which was TO BE ANNOUNCED PA LANG.
Upon finding it, we went up and checked the room. I found Monique inside one but, she's having her class so I couldn't wave "Hi!" and be all estatic. Hee.
Afterwards, Ara and I were sweating despite the nearness of the bldgs we went too.
Man, it was hot!
So we went back to our Comm 3 classroom, which was empty already with lights out and everything, and made ourselves feel better and cooler by sitting next to the electric fan I turned on earlier. HAHAHA. Evil Freshmen invasion.
So, next class na. KAS1. THE PROF WASN'T AROUND EITHER. This first day is getting pointless....
I MADE 3 FRIENDS! Clap, clap, clap. :))
Alyana, Sarah, and Cathlyn! :)
We just sat next to each other and declared to the world were freakin' lost freshmen. Joke.
We had lunch together and...I HAVE A STORY! (Like this isn't one)
We bought lunch from Casaa but there were no more table so went to the CAL bldg. and sat on the unoccupied chairs. In less than a minute a young boy approached us. A child. He was carrying a sack with empty bottles and asked for money. We said we'll give him food na lang. Candy. He didn't want it. Then his two siblings came towards us as well, they kept asking for food as well. And, it was just so awkward 'cause the 4 of us had lunch and everything and they didn't and it was just...
I gave them my whole meal. Just so they'd stop and for them to have something to eat.
BUTI NA LANG PINAGBAON AKO NG DADDY KO NG SANDWHICH. =)))))
But later on, huming pa rin sila AND THEY DIDN'T EAT THE VEGGIES. :(
I asked the girl to throw the plate and utensils in the trash can 'cause she just left it there. She obeyed me.
So I ate my tuna sandwhich for lunch.
My last class was PE -street dance.
YANA R. AND I WERE LATE.
AND THE PROF MARKED IT. Huhuhu.
2 lates - 1 absence
2 abesences - I can't remember but it's definitely not nice!
At the end of the day, I hung out with AA people again. And, we skipped the dance concert because there were just a little too many freshmen to fit in their theater.
I got home safe enough to type this.
BUT MAN, IT WAS TIRING!
The heat, the endelss walks, no breeze! :(
Can't wait for tomorrow!
I'd be having my major class, Geology, and Math 11.
See you all soon, I hope?
Love and gratitude (cheesy!),
So Long Sweet Summer
Seth Cohen To Eyeliner Wearing Dark Band Vocalist
I just watched Jennifer’s Body with my brothers, in the wee hours of the morning.
Incredible OST. :)
I must say, I found it a bit off to find Adam Brody, the boy played Seth Cohen, playing some eyeliner-wearing vocalist of a dark band. HAHAHA.
He must have grown out of his love for indie bands and decided to be in one instead. Ha!
