out of school

Yes, I’ve been lounging in our house for almost a week exam-free, article-free and basically everything that involves the university. It’s not that I’ve longed to get out of college (heck no, I wanted to extend it pa gani), but I am just enjoying the break. School is fun, really. Then suddenly, Donna, the ultimate source of gossip and all things seedy, has sent me this morning a message saying:

“I’m at the b/f and some mom just found out
that her son didn’t even enroll last sem….”

Isn’t this so tragically sad? My, for four months, what could her son be possibly doing in Dumaguete? The list of answers is actually eternal. I thought this only happens in American television shows that give a picture of the rich and the nasty. I am mistaken. For a third world country, I am still momentarily stunned that there are indeed some young people who do not value what they have and could possibly have.


URGENT UPDATE! It is just so hard to admit but university student these days are as desperate as rabid dogs longing for a bite. And what awful bite they could make! Students no longer sulk in a corner whenever they commit a mistake but this time they can do more than just cold stares and curses at one’s back.

Read this post here, entitled Death Threats for Good Grades, written by Ian Rosales Casocot, and you’ll see what I am talking about.

Baka naglalarao lang siya ng ultimate frisbee araw-araw!

Yeah, that guy maybe has some reasons but he should've informed his parents why. Hindi yung mashoshock lang bigla yung ina niya when she thought of paying her son's tuition for the coming semester. Tsk tsk...

hopefully not fooling around with the money. masarap kasing maging malaya, alam kong mali, pero sometimes when you have your own money (earned or otherwise), mas gugustuhin mong tuluyan nalang kumita.

oh well, enjoy your final sembreak... when you're already working di na uso yan...

Masarap nga maging malaya pero yung oras ng ligaya momentary lang. Eh, ano makukuha niya pagkatapos ng joy-joy days? Wala. Ewan ko lang if anak siya ng isang bilyonaryo. Siguradong wala siyang problema nito. Hahay!

Oo nga, talagang goodbye to all school things pag nagtatrabaho na ako. Huhu...
