Campus Chill

It’s been oddly cold here in LB* for the past three days.

Usually, January (or any month, actually) here means jean shorts, flip-flops, and that ₱18 ice cream at 7-Eleven. Not complaining about the current weather, though—being the winter child that I am, I was even in love with it.

And seeing the campus people** with their jackets wrapped around them made me giddy inside because it reminded me of December in the UAE; chilly winds, occasional drizzles, et cetera, et cetera.

So to show my love for the January weather here in my hometown, I gave poetry another shot and rhymed some words during my spare time. Don’t expect it to be a great one, though, because in case you don’t know, I specialize in writing shitty poems.

Sem-starter feels #2

Hooray to me for completing the first day of my second semester in college! I don’t know what changed in the campus, but it definitely feels much more different than the previous semester. It will also be my first semester not to have any superclassmates* and it’s scary and liberating at the same time.

This semester, I’m going to be dealing with political science and I’m really hoping that I understand something because if there are two things that I’m not interested in, these are politics and science. I’m also taking self-defense classes! Yay—only, not yay because I never really planned on taking PE without a friend and now I have to get used to being by myself. This class will certainly determine whether or not I can get by without knowing anyone. Hopefully, I will. Also, the campus gym is so far away from the other buildings that I feel like I’m on a walkathon whenever I have to go there. Nobody deserves this kind of torture. Nobody.

In general, today was exhausting and “meh”, (though I’m pretty sure tomorrow will be more hectic) but it’s still manageable. I just hope that I don’t die of stress by the end of May.
