It’s been a week since my last visit. :(( I really, really miss this kid.
People were recently asking, ”Thea ano bang meron sa part nyo? Magkwento ka naman.” At first it confuses me but I’ll eventually realize Ah ung part namin sa likod.
We’ll I can’t even answer that question immediately because there are loads of crazy things, mostly nonsensical. Every time I am asked, though, it feels like there’s something exclusively special happening in our circle.
Okaaaaaay. I guess I have to be a good friend for these little fricks I just hahahahhahaha jusko po :(((( So here’s what happens at the back, to feed your curious little minds. :)
1. They teach me Kapampangan phrases. Evan and Kyle are Kapampangan and I’d hear them speak unfamiliar words. Naturally, I would ask ”Ha? Ano yooon? Ano ibig sabihin noooon?”. All at once, these two would throw crazy-sounding stuff at each other and the rest of us will laugh forever. Sometimes, too, I’d ask for them to translate phrases for me (mostly bad words so it wouldn’t count in my swear jar). So far I’ve learned “dana”, “kapilan ka me panganak” (Kelan ka pinanganak), “meranup na ku na naman” (nagugutom na naman ako), “idamo bugok/ idamo ka animal” (this is bad hahhahahha they’d hold me back, afraid that someone might hear. They said that their moms would hit my mouth if they heard me.) and I’m still learning more mehehe.
2. We answer Math and Philosophy during free time. Mostly because we need each other’s individual knowledge to answer certain problems Evan has his unique stocked knowledge (really helpful in bad situations). Kyle has his learning from the book (he’s the only one who reads). Sonart has his opinions (which change everything). Maiko has his contradictions (he’s too smart). I explain everything (based from the gathered information from these four). That’s how we work during free time. At times, we copy from other people because you know, sabaw utak, and laziness is contagious.
3. We talk emerald. They talk emerald green, actually. There are just instances wherein they’d ask me certain things about girls (I’m not gonna mention it) and the first thing I’d say is “What the hell kayo jan nanonood ng porn tapos hindi nyo alam” so it does make me talk emerald too. But yeah, in the end I’ll explain things for them to understand. You’d know the difference when they’re just sincerely curious or simply messing around. And when they’re messing around, it’s fun to engage in a competition of who has a more witty emerald thing to say. The usual thing I’d ask is about party happenings, like how Kyle kisses a girl, or what happened to their beer pong game the previous night and it’ll just expand into something general, which is why we jump into something related but kinda falls off the matter. But of course if it’s too much, there’s this cue “Dana! Ayoko na hahahaha. Kadiri.” and everything will go back to normal.
4. We talk holy. Loool well not really. Tatanong pa ba yon? Syempre usapang angels. That legendary “do angels exist”, which I think was pushed by Kyle in every subject we have. He’s just fond of beautiful people and calls them angels guys hahah. Sonart would talk about Heaven is for Real, on the other hand, because it is his favorite. He always base theology topics on HIFR like he’d say “Oo diba ung sa HIFR ung nakita nya ganto ganyan”. Each. And. Every. Time. Undeniably, our favorite part of theology discussion is the question and answer part, before moving on to the next topic. It’s the time for us to ask stupid questions, extremely distant from the topic, but still holy. We first brain storm things and bombard each other with ideas to come up with a stupid, yet levelheaded question. We’ll then discuss the answers to explained by our professor rather than listening to her own discussion.
5. We schedule things and fix each other. It’s not all kalokohan just because we seem like it’s the only thing we know. Still do schedule things like, “Online ka ng gantong oras mag-aaral tayo sa groupchat” or “Huy mamaya ha send mo saken magsesearch ako” and other related matters. Sometimes, it’s delayed because “Hindi pa ako nakakauwi nasa pit ako!”. That’s when I scold these frick. Pag ako naman ung inaaantok sila jan ung mamaya ka matulog sasagot pa tayo. “Fix each other”. Lol idk what you call it.
So yeah. These people might be pacool and pappogi but that’s just how they are. We all have flaws. Depende naman yan sa kung saan o paano ka lumaki. They’re just used to a confidence-filled environment. Some of us aren’t, but still there are some things you do say about us diba diba diba. Hahahaha. But you know you were wrong because you guys said it yourself.
“Tunay talaga na wag kang mangjujudge pag di mo pa nakikilala no?” Eric’s voice echoes inside my head.

The Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water which visitors are invited to walk into. Sensors detect where visitors are standing, and the rain stops around them, giving them an experience of how it might feel to control the rain.
It’s all neat and artsy until the line is five hours long for 10 minutes of drizzling.
“I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”
Thats mildly hilarious
