|Pamy trying to cheer me up|
Thanks to my very early schedule, I am able to accomplish a ton of work or non-work during the day. Yesterday though was something else. I swear I had gone through so many hurdles, by the time I got home by 4pm, I had never felt so exhausted.
I haven't brought my camera to school because I only have one class (Spanish) and thesis and internship are still in the works right now. Thesis -- supposed to be by us; and Internship -- still pending. So really, my life should be busy, but I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Not good.
Anyway, they say that you can't have it all and yesterday, I sort of did -- in a non-good way. For every 'good' thing that happened to me, it came coupled with a 'bad' thing. Almost like buy one take one. Except I didn't want the take one part. Not one bit.
(+) I'm actually getting a hang of waking up extremely early (5:45 am) for class at 7am. Spanish 10 is actually a pretty good review of my 14-year Spanish class from Poveda. No, I still can't speak Spanish, but I sure can conjugate. My favorites: "/h/ does not exist in Spanish" and Profesor: Estas casada? Me: No, estoy soltera.
(-) Traffic was so terrible on the way for an interview I set up in Makati for our thesis. I left UP at 8:15 am and got to Makati at 10am! I swear I was about to cry from the traffic. I always seem to be in the slowest lane. All the freaking time.
|I was too afraid to sit|
(-) The interview wasn't my shining moment. I know what I wanted to from her, but I couldn't articulate it. I was so frazzled by the fact that I was late. I swear I could hear her thoughts wondering if I really was a college senior. Never again. Thank goodness for nice people. I feel like i had to apologize for wasting her time. It was that bad.
|This si the life|
(-) Makati police flagged me down for the 'traffic violation' that my UP Centennial Commemorative License Plate was covering the real license plate in the front of the car. Really?! The ticket costs 2500. What bugs me is I've been driving with that for almost a year and NO COP has ever stopped me. Then again, it was lunch time and I guess some people were hungry. What pisses me off the most is how they were pretending not to want the pay-off -- telling me that if I wanted to give them money, they would accept it, BUT they weren't asking for it. I'm sure. Believe me, this is the filtered out, non-dramatic version of the story. Let's just say I had water works and a really high pitched voice during the ordeal.
|Best lunch ever|
(-) Not getting oriented for internship because I wasn't told and my medical certificate being rejected because of the paper it was written on. Really? Who knew so many silly things had to be done before actually getting to do the actual internship. I so miss my radio internship -- wherein we showed up at the station and they took us in, no questions asked. I hate bureaucracy.
|I've got tickets baby!|
(-) Just one day left for the US folks, and 5 excruciatingly long more days for me to wait. It's not like I haven't succumbed to reading all the spoilers I can find on it. I swear I'm terrible at this. I should really just unplug the internet and stay away, but I can't. And so now I'm really excited and frustrated that it doesn't show here tomorrow.
