After my christmas party with college friends I met up with my elementary friends for a mini get together. It’s been a while since some of us have seen each other so it was really fun.

We started reminiscing, talking about old classmates and teachers, old “love teams”, songs that were uso back then and all the kabaduyan we did before.

At first everyone was ok.

We even made Geri sing with the band at Camalig.

But I think some of them had a little too much to drink. They started smelling each other. haha

And then they started posing with the lanterns.

Things got even weirder when they acted like they were models.

The girls and I thought we needed to do something. So there goes the pray over.

Good times. šŸ™‚

I swear this christmas party was full of drama and crap but in the end we had awesome fun.

The water was uber cold (what do we expect?) but we still immersed ourselves in the water anyway! It was so fun.

We stored our food inside the ref so it won’t get spoiled the next day but we didn’t bring any pots to heat the food. Jean went to the office to borrow a pot but they said we could rent it for 50 bucks! 50 bucks?! That lady was the biggest opportunist that morning! Her pot was so ugly, I wondered where she got the nerve to have it rented for P50. Tsk tsk.

Anyway, we sure did sang a lot of karaoke!! We were videoke whores. We salivate at the sight of a P5 coin, hehe..

One of the many things that I have learned in my short 20 years of existence is to stay quiet when you’re raging mad. Learning is the easy part, actually doing it is not. It takes a lot of practice and a lot of brain cells for you to function correctly.

Modesty aside, I am a kind, nice, and very very patient person but once I get pissed or I get mad I can blurt out things I never imagined I could say. Ever. Things I totally regret saying afterwards.

I can never be too mad. I do not like myself when I am mad. I transform into some sort of monster. But all the things I say to people when I am mad are true, and sadly the truth hurts. I also do not like being stepped on, I do not want my rights being oppressed, I do not like people lying especially in my face, I do not want too many excuses to the point I cannot handle it anymore, I do not like to be played like a fool. As I said I am very very patient, but once people gets to cross the line, I fight. It’s human nature.

They say the nicest people are the worstest enemy and in my case I have proven that to be true. Take my dad for example, he’s the nicest guy around, really, but once he’s mad you better run for cover. But after that he cools down and reconciles. Just like me now. I have cooled down. I just got back from a feeling like blood was up my head to now calm and what-the-hell-did-i-say-stupid-me state.

So to all those people I have hurt, I have offended, those who felt my rage, those innocent victims of my PMS, to those I have said something way out of line like saying their ass is fat and their breasts are flat, I am really sorry from the bottom of my big heart.

Wait, I didn’t really say anything about somebody else’s ass and boobs, that’s just of course an exaggeration.

Merry Christmas everyone.

We were having coffee and muffin at dunkin donuts after our uber early exam when my phone rang.

It’s my mom.

“o?”

“hello? ma? ano?”

“hello?”

I thought my phone’s battery was dead.

“Fucker! namatay”

But my battery wasn’t low. My phone said: 1 missed call

I wondered why my mom hang up on me when I haven’t even answered the call.

Then Donnie suddenly picked up his phone.

“Hello? Hello? Ha? Sino po to’?”

I thought he was just mocking my call.

Then he gave me his phone.

“Mama mo”

I answered the call “Hello? Ma?”

Then it suddenly hit me! Remember a few weeks ago when I had this annoying caller who I didn’t want to talk to so I diverted his call to Donnie’s phone after 5 seconds? I forgot to turn off the divert!!! I was laughing the entire time I was talking to my mom.

“Asan ka?” my mom asked

“Ha?” laughs

“asan ka? my pera ka ba?”

ah?? pera? ah oo hindi mo ko binigyan ng baon?” still laughing

“sira binigyan kita. bili ka ng cake”

“ng ano? ha? cake” laughs laughs laughs

“oo tawa ka ng tawa. bili ka cake” blah blah blah

“ah oo sige”
laughs laughs laughs

“blah blah blah blah”

“oo sige” laughs

“blah blah blah blah”

“ya gets ko, bye”

I didn’t understand any of the words my mom said after that because I was busy laughing my ass off.

Good thing I was with Donnie when my mom called and I was able to answer the call.

I didn’t realize my divert was still on because I usually answer my calls before 5 seconds.

I’m usually slow at doing things, I walk slow, I take a long time to take a bath, and I take forever to get dressed. Of course there are things I am fast at like writing, typing, and I am always the first one to get my hands on that huge pizza. But there’s another thing I’m really really fast at – I ‘m always the first to finish an exam or a quiz (if not, i’m always the second one). Like in my exam today, I was the first one to get done in a group of examiners from 3 or 4 sections. That was so rad! It happens all the time.

Even way back in elementary and high school I was always fast in my exams, the only difference back then though was once I am done, I won’t pass my paper unless a couple of students will pass theirs. I felt conscious. I didn’t want anyone to see I finished first so I’d pretend I am still answering the exam when in fact I am just doodling or making small dots at the back of the test paper. But now I’m a changed woman. Once I’m done, I’m done! No more waiting for someone to pass theirs. No more pretending to still be answering. Because eventually I got bored with always having to wait for somebody. I got bored waiting period and I am eager to get out of there to stop the agony. Erasures are wrong anyway so there’s nothing I can do even if I see something wrong with my paper. Another reason is because I’ve learned to value my time now. The time spent on waiting for somebody to pass their papers can be used for studying for the next exam or something.

So, yeah, I am really really fast in taking exams. 10 minutes at the least.

The funny thing is, once I’ve passed mine, some students start to fumble to get done on their exams too. I think I might be the culprit why some students sometimes get low scores on their exams because they get distracted once I pass my paper already.
