Whoa! I was supposed to blog all the things that happened lately immediately after logging in to my administration panel when I was luckily (yes, that’s the word) transported into Matthew Mullenweg‘s (the man behind the Akismet plugin that captures spam comments) blog. Holy cow. He’s one of the persons behind WordPress and he’s just 23 years old¹! Whow, how I wish I could be like him someday, some day..
I am now an official student² of our school for the second semester. A big thanks to my classmate, for taking my shoes while I couldn’t find a way to get back at school earlier or on the day of the enrollment. What was left for me to do this morning was to simply pay the tuition fee and have my forms stamped with “Registered.” Prior to that, I waited minutes in Landbank for the ATM to go online. It did, thankfully. And I happened to overhear someone (when I was already in the tricycle going to the dorm) saying that it was already offline at that time. Friday seems my lucky day.
Last night when I arrived at the dorm, I was welcomed with a news that my monitor got broken after tumbling from the bed by not being given enough attention by my dormmate who borrowed my computer for the semestral break for her to do her thesis. Great. It’s still in the repair shop, and she’s saying that she’ll buy me a new one if the damage cannot be undone. Yeah, right. Before going to bed, I read the newspaper. It said on the front page, “Girl, 11, loses hope, hungs herself.” She’s from Davao, and the reason why she did it was because she could no longer stand the situation of their family. Such a terrible news, and I can hardly imagine someone as young as her would do ‘it.’ When her parents gathered up her things, they recovered a diary and a letter, which was very unfortunate to reach GMA’s “Wish Ko Lang” show.
Of course, I’ll blab a few things before I got here in Iloilo. I (ended up) stayed in Cagayan de Oro City for almost three days because I got the schedule of Negros Navigation wrong. And so what I did there was to stroll around Xavier University (Ateneo de Cagayan) with my hayskul classmates while they were still on the process of enrolling themselves and ‘formal’ classes aren’t expected to happen yet. They were blaming my presence because it got their pockets empty *ehehehe* from eating at KFC and Chowking and doing Arcade Games in Limketkai Mall (they actually skipped one subject after being drowned by the fun — am I to be blamed?$), and going here and there. We went to two National Bookstores and I found myself buying Bob Ong’s “Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas”. The following day when I told my classmate that it’s not what the title says, she also bought a copy — including the rest of Ong’s books!
