Graduation reflections

Graduation reflections

I’ve always dreamed of graduating from college. There seemed to be nothing better than finally getting school over with and start earning my own money. School seemed to be a chore, with an endless line of professors telling me what not to do, what to do, and when and how to do it.
Now that I’m finally getting my diploma, though, I’m surprised by the realization that despite my countless gripes as a college student, I’m scared of leaving.

Birthdays with YC = always good fun

Birthdays with YC = always good fun

I can’t believe this is the fourth year we’ve celebrated birthdays together. The first birthday we celebrated as a group was my seventeenth: we had pizza at Yellow Cab and christened ourselves the YC Buddies. We’re adorable like that.

Despite my dramatic sad bullshit at the thought that this would be the last time we’re celebrating birthdays as classmates, we had fun. Prelims are over so it was good enough time to blow off steam.

Start-of-school haul

Start-of-school haul

Who doesn’t love getting new stuff at the beginning of each school year?
It used to be more fun when I was a kid: I got a brand new set of everything, from watercolor sets to nine notebooks in different colors of the rainbow. Now I’m in college, it doesn’t seem appropriate to bring a magnetic racecar-shaped pencil case to school, so I make do with buying sensible bags and shoes. BOO!

Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Manaoag

Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Manaoag

I’ve grown sick and tired of seeing the streets of Manila every damn day, so last week was perfect timing when our college announced that our class would participate in a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan.

Call time was 5AM and I got home at around 12AM the night before, which meant I had less than two hours of sleep because my travel time is two hours. (It sucks living so far away from school; it gets tiring after three years of commuting.) Anyway, even though we spent more time travelling to Manaoag than actually staying there, it was one helluva good time!

Low-quality iPod photos, I forgot to bring my point-and-shoot 🙁
