I used to love Fridays a lot. It meant the end of the long work week (or in my case, a long school week). Now, I still like Fridays but not as much. It's quite hard to get up early in the morning at 5am just to beat MMDA's color coding and get to ateneo by 7am. Before friday meant no more classes the next day. This sem it means the beggining of a long weekend of school.

I still like fridays though. On a friday, people smile more, people are more relaxed. I just wish the good ol fridays are back- when i didnt have to get up early and just laze around my bed.

15 more weeks to go.

back to reality

It was barely two weeks ago when vacation started and now, its back to reality again. Argghhh!!! Bitin! Mind you I do love going to school but when you just went through one hell of a semester, a two week break feels like it was no break at all... Okay enough of the whining... I'll just think positive thoughts... Sige na nga.. things I will look forward to this semester...

1. 12 noon classes (I don't have to get up early)
2. Badminton in between work and school (lots of them)
3. Impromptu gimiks with Ella (we never seem to be able to this on vacations)
4. Christmas and shopping for Christmas gifts
5. Palawan Adventure 2005 (the preparation begins!)
6. Merienda in the afternoons with Weevens, Ma. Ces, and Oliver
7. Friday color coding (yeah right!)
8. No more evening classes (except when I have to be driver for mom)
9. Planning for my birthday (not that I want to hasten getting older)
10. Teaching a new course
11. Seeing my students (the nice ones!)
12. Free email and internet access at work
13. New cubiclemate (Mareng Reg!!!)
14. Teaching psy testing all over again
15. Only 6 units in academic load this sem (my last 6! hooray!!)

and lots more...

final exams and cramming

One more week and all these is over and done with-- finals. I can't wait. It feels like a never ending torture session and we don't even try to excel on anything anymore-- just surviving is considered a mean feat. If I am still alive after next week, I am the happiest person in the world.

random thoughts

Have you ever had a moment in your life when happiness seems to be within your grasp yet you are so afraid to take it? Not because you don't want it but you are scared shit that it will disappear. It's like wishing you could bottle the moment and keep it that way forever. And you keep hoping that maybe this time it will really be the happy ending you've always been dreaming of.

And there we were, in a kind of harmony; andthe evening was so beautiful, that it made apain in my heart, as when you cannot tellwhether you are happy or sad; and I thoughtthat if I could have a wish, it would be that nothingwould ever change, and we could stay that wayforever...
