After seven full days of hardcore reviewing for exams and treating aching muscles and joints caused by sports involvement and some academic reasons, alas, the week ends with a quite entertaining stay in Star City with some of my blockmates and our respective first year buddies.
What’s with the title, anyway?
The week started with a no-classes-today-Monday, yet turned out to be a perfect opportunity for sourcing the materials in 168, a mall at the heart of Divisoria in Manila for our OT140 class. By some miracle, I even met a former classmate strolling on her way home while we were searching for our groupmate. The sourcing was successful, as we managed to join the swarms of people
shoplifting shopping in the said mall. The only difference – we did not buy anything at all.
A bloody and teary exam in Biolab was held, thanks to the smell of formalin all over the place and questions that would certainly make your brain cells die of information overload. Our Biolec professor had her blood pressure up high on our class due to extreme noise, thus stopped the discussion by 5:00. Thanks also to a VERY effective projector, displaying only a quarter of the supposed resolution of the screen.
For the third time around, I was
late absent in our walking class (Walking is considered PE, too). I actually had the chance to join them because I saw them crossing Pedro Gil to Baywalk, on the way to Quirino. I just didn’t have the motivation to jump out of the car and walk the whole distance given to them with my bag(s) alongside me. Good thing it’s not a practical test. I just went straight to SSWC and donned my uniform, then walked my way to CAMP for OT140. The make-up class was held that day, so we stayed until 5:30.
Our exam results in Comm 3 were returned, and I got a fairly low grade. Well, I guess not just me, but most of us. I never expected it [the exam] to be like that in the first place, so I was not evenly prepared. But that’s not a proper excuse to get me out of the situation. I know I can do better next time. After all, Engrish has been my forte since I stepped in school grounds.
Friday sure was long enough to be considered a ‘day’ then, perhaps caused by our early dismissal, thanks to Biogyugan 2007 for that. Three
gay girl blockmates pulled me to Powerbooks for them to shop for books in sale, and then went with other blockmates at Pizza Niro to eat (for FREE, thanks to the ‘belated birthday’ girl) and greet recent birthday celebrants, with a surprise just before ending it. We then had to part ways, for we had to do our agendas: a make-up class, Biogyugan and returning to Divisoria to buy the shirts for our ‘society.’ With the sun up high at a scorching afternoon, we managed to endure the heat (plus the traffic) using our umbrellas and fans. It was a fairly easy attempt to buy, but getting a taxi back to the vicinity of Padre Faura took some time off our hands. We’re late for CAMPihan, but we were still able to steal a win from the first two games of the opening ceremonies.
Just this Saturday morning was the second long exam in Biolec, and then later in the afternoon another impressive performance by Ballet Manila at the Aliw Theater. I and some blockmates, as told earlier, eventually went to Star City afterwards to make use of the ride-all-you-can wristband that comes with the concert ticket. Sayang nga naman yung P250. At the end of the day, a certain blockmate even had the urge to hook herself to magic, ending up buying a set of magic tricks at a booth. We learned
some a lot of them, too.
It’s been one hell of a week – but the worst is yet to come.
[is this a hiatus brewing up?]
