I think I deserve my schedule because I’ve been to one hell of a journey to get it. The enrollment really sucks, and far worse, I only got one GE subject so I’m now forced to take four film subjects this semester. and mind you, they are all 3-hours-once-a-week classes. Argggh.

And see, my wednesdays are FULL. I really dont have any idea on how I could manage to study harder with three major subjects crammed in just a day. and I have barely an hour for my break.

Tuesday, June 10

It’s the freshie welcome assembly! We had much much fun. I saw the enthusiasm in the face of those film freshies! Parang ako lang din noon. And I know there’s a lot of things alloted for them. As for my classes, I just had Sir Tilman and he dismissed a little too early.

Wednesday, June 11

I only had Film 103 and again, with Sir Tilman. I noticed he wore the same shirt as yesterday. Hahaha. And yeah, my first Comm 100 will be on July 2. So, one month free!

Thursday, June 12

Yey! Independence day! Okay, Sir Palomares is okay, I think. Hope I learn a lot from him, though. 🙂 And I again met Ma’am Salanga for PanPil 17 along with my other classmates in MPs 10! Yey. And the UP Cineastes’ Studio had our very first General Assembly this sem. It’s supposed to be held on the thirteenth, but because of superstitious beliefs, yeah. Hahaha.

Friday, June 13

Friday the Thirteenth! I think friday the thirteenth’s bad luch thing doesn’t work for me because i just had 1 class for the day and soon, i’ll be having 4 days in a week off because I only have like 3 remaining meetings with my PE! Hahahaha.

Ummm yeah I have to admit that this day gave me a little nega-feeling. I didn’t feel that well and became a little irritable. But I was to able to go home safe and sound, so i think that’s lucky. 🙂



The Pump UP @ 100 party at Opus Bar, Metrowalk was a BAM! There are lots of guests and umm, guest performers! Saan ka pa makakakita ng 140 worth ng free-flowing drinks and superb performances? I really enjoyed the night. Well except that I really like to tear off my clothes that night because they looked too baggy for my saggy and porky body. Hahahaha. I really had nothing good to wear! Well what matters most is nag-enjoy naman ako for the most of the time. Hey, the UP Cineastes’ Studio won as the org with the most number of attendees! WOW! Sabi ko na kasi competetive talaga kami. Kaya naman kami ang the best. Naman! Hahaha. Andaming Cineaste na nandun kaya nagmukha na naman siyang Cineaste event.

Actually I missed most of the Cineastes and the party and drinking sessions reminded me of the December 17, 2007 Cineaste Night-out na masasabing isang milestone sa buhay ko bilang freshie ako noon and all. Hahaha. At ngayong sophomore na ako ay napakasarap gawin at ulit-ulitin ang mga ganoong moments. Yung tapos na lahat ng work and the things you only need to worry is how you would make yourself as sober as possible. Haaaaay. The party was a good way to end the tiring FOPC bid. Worth-it!

Another thing that made my Opus Bar experience worthwhile was the presence of some of the film freshmen! Nakakatuwa lang na hindi pa man sila nagsisimula ay nandyan na sila, nakikigulo na. Ang-sweet.
Sana mas marami pang chances na maka-bond namin sila and palagay ko, making them enjoy their first year in college could be one of the sweetest accomplishments I could obtain. 😉

Ang nakakainis na parte sa pasukan na ito ay yung 9 units lang ang na-enlist ko at eto pa, bigla bigla na lang nag-iba ang prof ko sa Film 102 from the most competent and wise to the not so competent and not so wise. Hahaha. Frustration ko siya ngayon. Sa totoo lang wala naman akong pakialam kung sino mang prof sa mga subjects ko dahil naman sa mas importante sa akin talaga ang schedule. Pero huwag naman sa mga majors. At lalo namang huwag yung prof na yon. Hahahah.

Gusto ko naman in the most possible way na magkaroon ng good film education. Yun lang naman ang gusto ko sa buhay. Kaso kung sa mga not so competent at not so wise teachers ka mapupunta eh para saan na lang yon.

By the way, ang-awkward lang ng title ko. Parang guessing game. 🙂
