I am planning to go back to Manila on Wednesday morning since my class will start on 12:00 pm,but yesterday I received a message from our PRO that our block is required to attend a seminar, so obviously my plan was wrecked but in a lighter note, the seminar is very useful for my course. At first I am thinking how to encourage my blockmates to attend until there was a follow-up message that we MUST not ignore the invitation because it will serve as an attendance in our major subject, “South Asia”under Sir Ernie Mabahague, so I guess it will not be a pain in the ass to think for a reason because it is clear, ATTENDANCE IS A MUST! So now let me give you the details and hope to see you there ASIANS, ARTLETS, and THOMASIANS!

Not everyone was given a chance to be part of the 2012 AB CAMPUS TOUR that’s why when I was offered to be part of the Campus Tour for freshies of Asian Studies, I didn’t think twice. Together with my classmates, we toured 1ASN2 and it made me think about the moments way back in first year, when I was being toured by people I don’t know. Those times when I was afraid to roam around because I might get lost, but now, I was the one touring them, acting this very-mabait-na-ate, and making myself sound very knowledgeable about the places in UST. Fortunately, I survived their questions, and a big thanks to the papers containing all necessary information about our university.
As I reminisced the past, it just came to show that time is really fast, I am already a junior, then later on senior. Oh my tone here seems to be so excited to finish my degree, fast forward please!
Anyway, I was fortunate to handle 1ASN2, they were all nice, some of them surpassed my “kalog’ side, and they even had this cheer “NANANANA! TAKE YOUR HEAD OFF!”. Their confidence seemed to show that they are not freshmen, they are not new to the campus, rather, all of them are perfectly part of the Thomasian community. It was a very tiring day but still I enjoyed. At least, I have done something for my course and most importantly,it was another college experience for me.
