My-So-Called “Not My Day”

I went out and decided to enjoy the sunshine! Nahhh! In fact I’ve been inside the house for a week. Why do I need to go out if the goodies are here inside my room? A lappie, a net connection, tv, I could not ask for more! Besides I have nothing to spend. Hehehe. (hirap tlaga maging bum kaya hobo chic lang lagi suot ko dito. Hindi hubo ha! hehehe) But I decided I have to deal with my enrollment before deadline comes.

I planned to go around 6am. But I was too lazy to get up so I woke up around 7am and by 8 am I was on road. It was ok for me to stand in a bus even if it’s for an hour (from my home to Baclaran). But what I don’t really like are busses that stops everywhere it wants to stop and picks up some poor passengers that will later join me standing up. And what I really hated are passengers that are too selfish and have no concern to co-passengers, some even have FRESH scent in the morning, literally! I also hated the “kundoktor” who will push you or boss you to move from the place you found comfortable standing. What’s worst? A price hike in your fare… from P35 to P44! I know… I should have taken the FX ride than the bus. Since I haven’t been out, I was pretty clueless!

After an hour and a half on that joyride, I decided to light some candles in Baclaran Church and say some prayers. I asked for a better day…

I arrived in my school around 10:30am I was in a hurry. As I enter the premises, the guard called me and asked what I will do inside. I told him I have to settle my enrollment and then he started his sermon about me not wearing my uniform and not having my haircut… I was furious that moment. And I told him I came from afar and I hoped he texted every student that a complete uniform is required upon enrollment. He allowed me to enter, I dashed inside, gave him a second look and rewarded him a mid finger flip! Bad ced! Bad! Tsk!

I immediately took 2 flights up and headed to the coordinator’s office for second year students. Sadly, he’s not there! He’s on a meeting and will take the whole day for that. Karma much??? Arggghhhh!!!

So I decided to see my friends who’re having their classes. Yes, 3rd year students started their classes last fourth week of April. I was really excited to see them. I only texted one and asked him where his room is. He’s my buddy in school. And later, one by one some of my closest friends came out. (lukso ng dugo?) hahaha! There was a lot of catching up and lots of question and answer portion. We talked about our postponed plans of having an outing here in Cavite. They asked me what my plans are. They talked of how’s 3rd year life. For a while I was kind of jealous, I was supposed to be with them, having my classes too and so. Thrice I felt I was out of place, I can’t relate to what they were talking about. A doctor/assistant dean made a tour around and suddenly all of them were out of my sight. No goodbyes' and see yah's. I was left alone at the corridor. What a defining moment for me. I have nowhere to go. But seeing them happy and having a great time talking to them was ok for me. It was worth the visit. I decided to come home.

Before, I was asked what my regrets were. I don’t have a definite answer then... But now, it’s clear what will I say if someone will ask me again…

kingdaddyrich said...

sino bang hindi nagulat sa biglaang pagtaas ng pamasahe?

pero ang tagal ng biyahe mo ah. from 8am tapos 1030 ka na dumating ng school. at nakatayo ka lang ba ng buong panahong nasa biyahe ka sa bus? varicous veins na yan iho.

at siyempre muntik ka nang hindi papasukin ng gwardiya. ahahaha.. kung ako nasa lugar mo at hindi ako pinapasok, baka nagunaw na ang mundo ni manong guard. kita mo nga naman, mag eenroll ka lang dapat naka uniform pa.. weee.. ang jologs ah.
