happy weekend.

The perfect way to end a not-so-perfect week. This was a happy weekend.

Br04d dinner + a great game (and victory) from the UP Fighting Maroons = ONE HAPPY ME. My other team (Ateneo) winning over its arch rival was just a plus.

***

My weekend started on a bad note, actually. I missed the UAAP Season 71 Opening. Darn. And it was all because of sheer stupidity. I had been looking forward to watching the opening for days. In fact, I even planned on seeing it live. Thing is, I couldn't drag anyone to go with me. Plus, I couldn't get tickets. I know, I work just outside the Araneta Center Complex, but I don't have time to go out and by myself tickets. So I decided to watch it at home instead.

I watched television in my brothers' room. Turned out that their clock wasn't working, so I didn't know the time. When I switched channels, I found out that I missed the opening number. I missed it watching Eat Bulaga, for crying out loud! I wanted to cry.

I prepped up for the broad dinner all gloomy and bitchy, realizing that I couldn't have been more stupid. Then I heard that there would be a replay on Channel 33 at 8pm. I must admit that for a while there, I thought of staying home and watching it. But that would be worse than stupid. How could I ditch my blockmates for something I know I could watch in YouTube?

Fast forward to the night. I didn't regret my decision. I'm still waiting for the pictures (for proof), but take my word for it, last night was really fun! Seeing my blockmates after my first week at work turned out to be so relieving, too. See, even if I like my co-workers, I can't help but feel like I still don't quite fit in. I'm the youngest and most inexperienced person there, and it would really take a lot of adjusting before I get the hang of the place. So being with familiar faces became a sort of reminder that there's still a place where I belong. Trish said that the broad dinner should be a monthly thing. I agree. And as Makey said, we could be each other's stress relievers after a month of working our butts off.

The night, as usual, was full of laughter and inside jokes from college days, asaran and barahan moments, rants and raves from work. I can't wait for next month's dinner. Hopefully there'd be more of us, though. See you guys!

*Dinner at Heaven n' Eggs, Trinoma. Attendance: Makey, Ayeen, Ely, Christer, Barrister, Ge, Therese, Yya, Pat (and boyfriend Migs), Karol, Dana, Trish and me.

One orgmate wrote in her blog that it was scary anticipating UP's first game this season. I couldn't have said it any other way. After hitting rock bottom without a single win in Season 70, no one could really say how the Maroons will play this time. A new coaching staff is no guarantee that the team's performance will turn around. But this afternoon, the Maroons came out strong. And I was pleasantly surprised. This afternoon, we saw a real team. Finally. The Maroons have been playing as individuals for the longest time. So it was refreshing to see them passing the ball around, hustling, playing good defese, and of course, scoring.

NU has evolved over the years and everyone knew that they were no longer the "losing team" anymore. We became that last season. But I couldn't believe the confidence that the Maroons showed as they took on the Bulldogs. There was no trace of the bottom-placers in them, no hesitation whatsoever. And, for a while there, the Bulldogs actually looked rattled. And that pleased me more than anything. The UP Fighting Maroons are back!

I pray that this would only be a start of a beautiful season for the Maroons, and not just for basketball, and not only because it's our Centennial year and we're the host. I know the Maroons worked hard to get back on their feet. They deserve a good season.

I also hope that I get to catch a game live. Hello, Araneta is just three blocks away from the office. I should find time to get tickets. Now, I only have to find a companion. Anyone interested to watch a game with me?

C'mon let's cheer! UP Fight!!! :)

step one.

Today ends the bum phase of my life. And I have a splitting headache and a slight fever. Tsk tsk. Trust me to be sick right before I report for my very first job. Haha.

Despite the apparent "apprehension" that my body displays, I'm really looking forward to going to work tomorrow. I have no idea what to expect, though. I've avoided asking Ro about the job and the office since I feel it's quite awkward, and maybe a tad bit unprofessional. Anyway, I just lift everything up to Him (especially my health).

I went to UP last Thursday, by the way. I got the extra copy of our thesis and some other documents from our adviser. It was good to see the campus again after weeks of being stuck at home. I have to say, though, I wasn't really comfortable being back in CMC. The halls were full of new faces, the tambayans were occupied by different people, and well, I just had the feeling that it wasn't where I belong now. Forunately, I got to see MCOers during their GA. But even the GA was different, actually - it was a lot quieter than what I was used to. I don't know, everything just seemed different.

But I think it was a good thing. Going back and seeing that a lot of things were not how they used to be (for me at least), was a sort of symbolic way of taking a step forward.

Today ends the month of June and my bumhood.

Tomorrow starts July and my life as part of the work force, haha. Here's to step one.

missing.

When I first saw the I-Witness plug for its Iskolar ng Bayan episode, I said (out loud), "Panonoorin ko yan." I just knew that it would bring me back to UP (the one thing I've been missing for the past weeks).

True enough, it did. While watching Howie Severino's documentary, my first days in Diliman all came back. Four years have passed and the feeling of stepping into the world of Oble for the first time still struck me like it was happening now. Culture shock. Excitement. Wonder. Eagerness.

I wish I could say I have the same feelings now that I've stepped out of it.

That letter I wrote to confirm my acceptance of the job offer is still in my Gmail Drafts. I opened it again earlier this evening and stared at the blinking cursor. After quite a while, I clicked "Save" instead of "Send".

One e-mail might be all it takes to make my step into the world of employment. How come I can't even send it? Where's the excitement, wonder, and eagerness?

Oble, help.

think

drama / sorpresa.

I didn't realize how much of a drama my last post was until I read it again just now. Must have been the antok. Or not. I do feel confused often these days. Anyway, thanks to all those who said that things will be fine. I know they will be, maybe I just wanted to hear it from someone else, too.

This morning, I went to my ninth interview. It went well. I wasn't nervous or anything, maybe just a little apprehensive. It's not everyday that you get called in by your best friend's mom for a job interview, right? It was weird, thinking of the possibility of "tita" being "boss".

I went home after the interview, which ended at around eleven. Then, when I was lazily watching television this afternoon, tita called me and asked me to come back for another interview my (future) direct "boss".

Surprise! I didn't think I would be called back so soon. This time, I was nervous. Ironically, I was anxious because I wouldn't know what to do if they accept me right away and ask me to report ASAP. But things went well.

And now, I think I might just have a job already. I have until the end of the month to think about taking it. I was grateful since it bought me time to wait for the others' call. And when that happens, then I'll make the decision.

I'd have to say, today turned out pleasantly, after all that drama last night. In fact, this job has the best offer. I just have to see if it's the one for me.
