The last time I posted something here on Tumblr was last November which was the semester break for us, college students. I can’t believe how so much has changed in just a span of about five months. My new circle of friends. My view on alcohol. My grades. Everything. I find it overwhelming, really… due to the changes in my daily life and all.
First of all, I would like to be honest. I find it annoying that I am always looked up on by my classmates. I mean sure, I acknowledge the fact that I’m a bit… let’s say, “ahead”. But I’m not that good at leading anything or anybody at all. I always tend to rely on others. I would rather be under somebody than to be the one who is actually in charge. It’s really hard but I think I need to know more stuff about leading others even though I hate the fact that this kind of thing is inevitable.
Another thing I’d like to point out is my school works. Due to the change in schedule of my classes, I find it hard getting ample sleep. Yes, I know that it’s my fault, but most people, like me, are procrastinators. With a “thesis” to finish and not enough group-mates helping, I find it hard to focus on other classes. Distractions are everywhere.
I find it hard to adjust around my surroundings.
So basically, my friend from college came over to my hometown so he can play some DotA with my high school friends. Actually, he was already here last night because he has another friend who is from here and they had a drink together.
By morning, he went to my house and woke me up and then made me sleep again. I woke up by noon and then we ate lunch together. After that, we went to Marx’s house where my high school classmates were at. They then left and went to “DOTCOM Computers” and started a game. They finished the first game then by the second game, my friend had already paid for his rent for the computer and was already inside the waiting room for the game. Guess what happened.
They were suppose to play already and then they all decided to create a new game without him in it. The gameroom was already full and when he asked if he can still join, they responded with, “The room’s already full.”
We then left and talked along the way then he rode a jeepney home. I feel really sorry for him because of my friends. I don’t know if I should be pissed off or not but I actually talked to them about it the day before. I even texted them about it. Meh. I guess it’s ENTIRELY my fault because I brought him with me.
I apologize for being away for so long. This semester has been such a busy journey for me and my new friends. We’ve been through so much through such little time. I’m going to miss them. Mostly the ones who’ll shift courses. It has been fun while it lasted.
I still couldn’t believe that we are nearing our final day for our first semester. The events on the first day still lingers in my pool of memories. I can still remember the very first quiz I took in college Math. The smell of failure mixed with the smell of satisfaction due to the exam that literally pulled up my grade. My highest grade and to my surprise was one of my Maths back in midterm. All the plates for our drawing subject that I did and let others do for me. All of the quizzes I took and failed. The two team-building activities which actually made us more closer to our upperclass course-mates. Everything. I enjoyed every second of it while it lasted.
I never thought I’d enjoy everything though. Not with the thought that I’m going to focus on my studies and transfer next academic year to University of the Philippines which was my plan and motivation way back from the start of the semester. Well, I guess I’m really enjoying my stay too much. I just hope that I get a general weighted average of 2.00 or higher. Tomorrow will be our final exams in our last 2 subjects. And finally, semestral break starts.
Tomorrow is the end.
Swabe sleepover. Hahaha. #GuitarHero #CardGames #Bluff
For the first time in my life, a horrific encounter. All I can remember was that I was asleep in my bed then I heard sudden noises coming from outside my room like someone as repeatedly stomping their feet. All of a sudden, I saw a tall black shadow-like figure near my bedroom door. I was immobile instantly. I tried to move but I just can’t and I don’t know why. I started to panic then I rolled to the left side of my bed. Shortly after, I blinked and when I opened my eyes, I only saw my blanket covers. I tried to scream to know if I was really awake then I heard my mom’s response downstairs. What’s weird is that I know it’s fifteen minutes to three and she’s sleeping in her bedroom with the door closed. I heard more footsteps as if someone was going up the stairs. I think I heard my cousin’s voice. I screamed his name while I was still immobile and once again, I blinked and woke up under the bed sheet covers. I tried to roll to my right, woke up again facing the bed sheet covers. For the fourth time, I was actually awake and I can move again.
These exams contained one of the most life-changing situations ever. I never knew that I could do it. Well, especially with the Maths since I never paid much attention to my Maths in high school which usually resulted to a failed quiz or a failed exam.
But honestly, this time, I never felt so excited in my life just to see the results of the examinations especially in the two Maths that I am taking.
ALGEBRA - I never knew that I could do it after everything I’ve been through with my Algebra in high school. Well, I guess all it takes is a lot of practice. LITERALLY A LOT OF PRACTICE (before we had our examinations, our professor gave us a homework which consisted of a hundred or more so items on both fundamental operations and factoring polynomials). I guess the whole day of answering that homework has actually paid off. Not only did I thought that the exam was easy but funnier that I thought that the homework our professor gave us was much harder.
PLANE AND SPHERICAL TRIGONOMETRY - THIS STUPID EXAM (lol just kidding) was so EASY that I became careless. Before even starting the exam, I actually reset my calculator for no reason. By the time that our proctor told us to start answering the problems, I had confusion as to why am I getting negative answers with the trigonometric functions. By three items done, I just realized that my calculator’s settings also change when I reset it. I had it on RADIANS instead of DEGREE measure. *facepalm* I’m glad that I even got the time to change my answers but my paper had many erasures though. Well, I don’t mean to brag but I got a perfect score on our first quiz and I bet I also had a perfect score on my second quiz. LOL. I feel so proud of myself, maybe I should let myself down.
1 down, 2 to go! #MedyoHapitNa #Cram #PlateNumberThree
