WHY A JEEPride TO UP IS DREADING.

sorry hindi ko nirotate... para mahirapan kayo... :))

Hear me out. It's not that I hate going to the UP Area. Sooner or later, when I get enough funds, I'd like to take some units there... Art History or Art Studies maybe... kasi I want to get an MBA from Ateneo eh... :)

Yeah, and I have friends in UP... :)

But I've always dreaded riding that UP jeep that could take me to PHILCOA. I see a lot of UP students and they are all cultures within themselves. I see cool dudes, I see girls in shorts and they look tomboyish... I see nerds... I see careless people who just looked like they were buying something from a store, an errand perhaps...

yesterday was a nerve-wracking experience.

I sat beside this guy, whose name I remember as SAM Manuel...
(I saw it. he is wearing his ID)



At first I thought everything was normal. Everything was okay...

And then suddenly, this Manuel murmured...
then he gestured...
then he reasoned out with himself...

I noticed he is actually memorizing something... For a defense or a recitation perhaps... And I admire him for really studying very well... it kept on until I had to go down at PHILCOA because I was going to a print shop that time...

But my... what a dreadful ride...
Not for me...
For him!

it seemed like he had forgotten it was a public transportation (well, it's filled with UP peeps naman so okay lang... hahaha) and he was reasoning out with himself with matching intonations and gestures! Waaaahhh! and the fact that UP is getting nearer and nearer, it's nerve-wracking FOR HIM! What if the exam or defense would determine if he's passing or not? nakakabaliw yun.... I wanted to speak to him and say... Kuya relax lang kaya mo yan, but I don't want to be taken as pakialamero or something. :))

What if... Gusto lang niya talagang mag-aral maigi? diba? Pwede naman siguro yun. :)

Someday, he will be like these excellent SUMMAS in UP. :)


Well, dear UP student, do good in there... :)
And save this country after you graduate. :)
Ikaw ang pag-asa ng bayan. Keep it up! :)

  1. Haha, that's a normal occurrence in UP during finals. Extension na nga this week eh. Last week, you would've seen everyone inside the jeep doing all sorts of gestures, recitations and whatnot. Or yung iba talagang naglalabasan ng malalaking libro and readings, deadma sa surroundings.
