some days in my life as a law student

things that drop (fall, nahuhulog o bumabagsak)

eventful day…grabe. here are some of the things that happened:

1. i decided to DROP civpro. yup, final answer na. kanina, i filled out na the dropping form, with my friend & blockmate, len. when we were about to have it signed kay ma’am avena, guess what happened…

2. ma’am avena FELL DOWN the stairs. yup, totoo. nagkagalos tuloy sya sa legs, so huge that they even had to stitch the wounds up in infirmary. sayang, maganda pa man din legs nya (uyyy ha, hindi ako tibo. unlike…). naisip ko nga, naku, is this a sign ba or what? baka ayaw kaming ipag-drop ni len…hahaha. but nah, maluwag na rin naman sa kalooban ko ang consequences nitong pag-dr-drop na ito. anyways, going back to ma’am avena, dinalhan pa namin sya ng crinkles from our block sa infirmary. tuwa naman ako that she appreciated the gesture. some of our blockmates said wag na lang daw dalhin kasi parang sucking up to her eh. but i didn’t care. what do i care? i’m dropping anyway.

3. parang HULOG ng langit, lumabas na ang property grades namin today. for the first time, barry failed no one. i got a 2.25. ok na rin. actually, surprisingly, taas ng grades ko last sem compared to the past sems. kala ko pa man din mahirap na sem yon. lowest grade ko yon actually, along with insurance and crim pro. sayang kasi di talaga ako magaling sa written exams. i only got a 2.75 sa finals eh 60% pa man din yon ng grade. kung na-maintain ko lang sana ang recit standing ko, where i got a 1.5-1.75. kelan kaya ako gagaling sa written exams? baka i should enroll in some legal writing clinic.

4. at mas malaking HULOG ng langit…my relationship with mike. one month na kami tomorrow!!! this has been the happiest, giddiest month (actually 2 months coz it all started when we met) of my life thus far. i’m really thankful for him. i love the way he loves me and takes care of me. (in fairness, i try my best to take care of him in my own way too) everyday, i find out something new about him that makes me love him more. i’m looking forward to more days, months, years with him…God willing. syempre hirap naman to play God and say na “yeah, for sure, we’ll end up na talaga with each other”. pero sana, di ba? rly do hope this ish it na. happy ako kasi aside from the two of us na masaya with each other, other people are also saying na bagay raw kami. sabi nila, nagkakamukha na raw kami. huh? can’t see the resemblance as of now but ok lang. sa paningin ko naman, my dearest is the cutest guy in the world (ok, i’ll stop na, i know you’ll find me getting mushier & mushier by the minute)

5. last na. speaking of fall, grabe, BAGSAK ako sa pagod today. we campaigned in 3 blocks, sunod-sunod. non-stop talking with the spiel, “i’m lorybeth baldrias from 2B, i’m running for VP because i’m willing. willing to be subject to the stresses of handling the bar ops once more, this time a notch higher than before. willing to be the slave of the bar reviewees. willing to be your slave. i’m running, as well, because i believe i’m capable. i won’t tell you na my accomplishments, work experience and co-curricular involvement because they’re all here in my brochure. i hope you’ll read it more so you’ll know why you GOTTA LOBIT. but for now i just wanna walk you through my GPOA. basically the job of a VP consists of…blah, blah, blah….thank you so much, come feb 16, please don’t vote for abstain. for the sake of the bar operations, you GOTTA LOBIT, because in law, every bit counts.”

ganito pala ang campaign period sa UP law. i mean, i’ve been through an election campaign na rin before but this is more tiring. dati naman kasi, walang room to room when i ran for JPIA president nung undergrad. tsaka dati, kilala ka ng mga tao kasi isang org lang kayo eh. dito, a candidate really has to make one’s self known. i admit, mas masakit yung mga intriga dati. although ngayon, meron pa ring mga things na na-bl-blow out of proportion, esp kapag di talaga kayo nagkakausap straight out, kapag nagpapaniwala lang sa mga hearsay. kaya na-realize ko, dapat talaga, if you have an issue with someone, kausapin mo in person. wag nang patagalin pa. and i’m glad i did just that sa mga ibang tao. syempre, ang sad dito, lahat ng bagay, kahit things done in seeming good faith, nakukulayan ng pulitika. sorry na lang ang mga gaya kong may naivete talagang taglay. kaya kung may mga nasaktan man sa isang bagay na nagawa ko, paumanhin. sorry. sana magka-usap-usap kami nung mga taong yon nang matino soon. at sana ma-realize nila na kahit na yeah, it was mighty naive of me, there was no bad faith on my part at ginawan kaagad ng paraan nung napa-realize sa kin ang implication nung bagay na yon. ang cryptic ba? i know kung mababasa ito ng mga taong nakakaunawa, getz na nila ito. haaaay, i really want this campaign period to be over na. naapektuhan ang mga friendships eh. para pa man din sa kin, sobrang important ng friendship. (di ba obvious, dami kong friends sa friendster? hehe). tsaka totoo palang hirap mag-concentrate sa acads pag ganito.

at ngayon, speaking of acads, para naman hindi ako BUMAGSAK sa IPL at partnership, parang kelangan ko na yata mag-aral. after mike’s phone call (w/c i’m awaiting) & some rest siguro (coz i’m so damn tired). so there. this ish it for now!
