Bring it on, stress!

August 17, 2006. This is going to be a long backtrack chronicle of the past week. You don’t have to go through this. It’s just so I don’t forget what happened the past week.

Last Thursday, I went to my only class that day, Hong Kong Cinema class. I attended a UP MCO (Mass Communicators Organization) general assembly afterwards. Then, I watched Ang Huling Araw ng Linggo and Batad: Sa Paang Palay at Cine Adarna with some of my UP MCO orgmates.

On Friday, I ran errands for my mom during the lunch break after Film 115 class. I went back to school for Film 113 and then attended an applicants’ bonding activity for UP Cinema Arts Society.

The weekend was generally uneventful. I went to UP to attend a student council meeting on Saturday. I didn’t stay in school that much, as I was late for the meeting and it was already about to end the time I came. The meeting was about amending the student constitution of our college.

On Sunday, I went with my mom to our grocery store, after which, we had a very hearty dinner at Gloria Maris in Greenhills with her college friend and her family from Iowa. I got a little annoyed when she insisted that I sit with her friend’s daughters. I’m not a talker really, and I sort of dreaded the thought of initiating conversations with Middle American-raised girls. I didn’t know what to talk about. So, is my assumption that Iowa is a conservative red state correct? Haha. Anyway, we survived. Small talk is okay.

Last Monday, my political party in UP started to give me the lecture on lipunan and makabayang rebulusyon. I’ll talk about it here some other time.

Anyway, I finally got to report in my Broadcast Communication 100 class. I’m glad it’s over. No more worrying about receiving verbal lashes from Sir Avecilla.

After BC 100, I whisked off to the student council office for our weekly meeting. Aside from the usual talks, we were given these forms from our dean. They were application forms for the Ayala Young Leaders Congress (AYLC).

After the student council meeting, I went to SM North with Andre, my applicant buddy in UP Cinema Arts Society, for a buddy date. I also ran some errands for my mom while in SM.

On Tuesday, I had another art show-kuya stint with Ayeen for Christer’s TV production class. The first demo art show stint was for Ely in the same class a few weeks ago. After the said stint, I crammed my AYLC application form because our deadline was on that day itself. Filling out the forms made me feel a little insecure. I left a lot of fields blank because no, I did not win anything outside school, I’m sorry AYLC.

After Communication Research 100 class that afternoon, I attended another UP MCO general assembly at the batibot.

After the general assembly, I persuaded Con and my other orgmates in UP MCO to come watch Umaaraw, Umuulan with me.

After hanging out at my orgmates’ dorm at Ilang-Ilang, Con, Flau, Kim, Ely and I went of to SM North for the movie.

Yesterday was, well, not a very good day, as I’ve previously mentioned in an earlier blog entry. To make things worse, my cell phone went bonkers for a few hours, making me unable to contact groupmates and orgmates regarding different matters at crucial times.

I woke up late in the afternoon already. I was contemplating on whether or not I would still go to school. I eventually decided to just go. Staying at home would just make me feel worse about being such a lazy sleepyhead. I haven’t accomplished a lot of things for the student council, I missed scriptwriting class, I guess all I could do was at least attend my orgs’ activities.

Agh, I hate being sleepy. I got to Cine Adarna’s steps just in time, even early, for a small workshop for UP CAST’s applicants. That went well, I guess. I had to leave pretty early though to attend another applicants’ activity for UP MCO.

Thankfully, by the time I got to the lagoon, things were still going on. Hopefully, the applicants learned some things from what happened.

There you go. It’s almost four in the morning right now. Thank you to Patty for endlessly ringing my phone to wake me up. You’re successful this time. I owe you a favor.
