The Joys and Pains of College Life

               Dog days are now over and we are yet to face another school year full of pains and thrills of being a student. You have finally graduated high school and have decided to take the road of being a Carolinian, not a bad decision for this is the place where you’ll find brilliant minds and a place where you yourself can hone your beautiful mind. A whirlwind of thoughts might come into your mind of what you would expect in your college life. Some might think that this is finally my place to shine especially for those who were quite on the low dumps in high school. Some may think that this is the place where they can reinvent and revive themselves as a person. Some may see it as their freedom from their parents who are living miles and miles and miles away from them, but mind you, you’ll miss your folks and their non-stop ranting sooner or later. Some may fall homesick from their loved ones and find your pillow soaked with salty tears at night. Toughen up! For the time will come where you’ll soon reap your harvest with your diploma in hand.

                You will soon find new friends who are worth keeping where you’ll have a good laugh with them every once in a while and they are the ones to stick by you and lighten up your spirit when your suffering from a heartbreak or from the midterm and final exams. Plus! They are good for your soul. In college, you would get to meet lots of interesting people with their unique experiences in life. As much as possible talk with lots of people in your different classes, you never know you would learn something from their own experiences in this thing called life. Alas, College is the time where stress and pressure of making it to the dean’s list or even just passing your subjects are always present and never absent. You’ll sometimes find yourself with a terror teacher but remember that these are the teachers where you’ll mostly learn far more and who’ll push you to your greatest potentials.

College life is of course never complete without the acquaintance parties and Christmas parties where you can showcase your gorgeous looks and let’s not forget the after-parties.
Clubbing, and inuman sessions are mostly present with kids nowadays, a lot of them wind up in mango Square, I.T. Park especially after Exams. It is their way of burning out the stressful overtones. But going out in those public places can expose them to certain dangers like brawls, pre-marital sex, and the very infamous HIV.

We heard rumors that random people would prick a needle stained with the blood of the person with HIV to you; let’s just hope that there is no truth to that. If it is, where is their humanity right?!

Sure parties are fun and finding yourself dancing around with loud music blaring in their background can pump up your euphoria but we should make sure that we surround around ourselves with good friends who would be there to tell us “Enough! You’ve had too much booze” or friends who would say “You are not alright, we should take you home” These are wonderful experiences where we find ourselves with people in high jinks but do consider going home smelling like a cigarette butt is not very pleasant. These experiences are part of growing up but it is a must to know our limits and to keep our dignity and self-respect intact. Go ahead! Live the joys and pains of college life and take every lesson and experience with a grain of salt because it would surely come in handy in the long run that is the “real world”.

I love being Single!!! Oh yea!! the perks of living free and independent

Being single reminds me of days filled with action-packed things that I love doing..

having nobody to put me off schedule, I don't get structured by anyone's problems, I can simply be me and run around doing my own thing without having anyone to please that way, I can be myself and not care about what others would say about me because I love myself, flaws and all. I accept myself for who i am, I'm not perfect but I know that I pour my heart out in everything I love to do and I know that I life my life to the fullest and be my 110% best in everything, enough said, okkay?.

I want to make this post to remind me that being single that I am right now is not bad at all, in fact, it's the state where I find myself in a sea of wonderful carefree memories, a free-spirit, yep (that's what I am)

starting with what I did yesterday:

-woke up at 1pm, I ate brunch, took a bath and went to SM with our helper to buy ingredients for sushi, went to buy that sexy wallpaper at Natio, then went to the dirty streets of cogon market to buy mango (alone, being the independent self I know I am), duty duty duty at our store being the cashier in one corner, hmmm. what else? ate that scrumptious dinner that our cook always makes, kuletan times and witty conversations with my sissy in between laughs and humorous anecdotes, went home, cooked the sushi and placed the wallpaper on the wall, I was in facebook then do some online dating and neopets!! plus the cold rain was pouring was I was on the internet.. i just love the cold rain and the cool breeze, truly relaxes every bit of my nerves but i still couldn't enroll online as there were no available schedules yet on my advised subj. bummer!

-its hard to remember in complete details what I did the day before that but I'm pretty sure I had a fight with my brotha!! ( he can be such a pain in the ass!!) I woke up that morning seeing him in his birthday suit with his flabby fats bouncing up and down and I was still in a state of hypnopompic and I though that I saw a crazy "tubol with arms and legs running around the house", I was laughing hysterically with our helpers and sisters sharing some funny memories about how funny he is when he gets furious, He's like a timebomb! and you don't want to see him explode! BOOM!! its like an atomic bomb has been thrown at us. After that, played the piano, read that Mary Kay Ash book my mum gave me and was suppose to do aerobics but since my period came so change of plans, read the bible in the evening. While I was reading the bible, got into a fight with him like what I said earlier and we were throwing pillows at each other. I was in rage! WAR i tell you! WAR! it was not the sleepover-kind-of-pillow-fights, it was the WAR OF THE PILLOWS! and I accidentally throw the bible along wit the dictionary, I feel so bad and I blame him for it. I'm so sorry Lord for throwing your holy words, I didn't mean it. HE made me do it!! I just wasn't able to stand the drama and threw one last pillow at him and went out of the room to cool myself down as I wasn't able to control my anger earlier and felt really bad about throwing the bible which he made me do.

So you see, my life is never monotonous when I'm home. It's full of dramas, ups and downs, rage and peace, it's like an action movie full of suspense. It's not perfect but it's quite amusing and funny for me.
