November 26, 2006. My mom treated me to lunch yesterday, before she sort of brought me to school. I showed her pictures from the previous day’s anti-tuition hike rally in UP. She wasn’t upset that I was there and that I even spoke in front. I didn’t expect her to, anyway. When I told her about the two anti-Arroyo mobilizations I went to, she even told me that she would have wanted to come along, if only she was healthier. At least, I have validation from the mother.
Long walks home are always, for me, time to think of stuff and let my mind wander off. Sometimes I’d even look like I was talking to myself. I took the picture above on my way home.
