it would be unfair if i say that not everybody worked for their thesis. of course everybody worked for their thesis. just that some worked harder and gave it their best to have a high grade because after all this (the thesis) will say all about what you learned in your college years. some made time to make sure that they will and can pass their thesis on time.
i don't know if i should be one of those few. after all i wasn't able to pass my thesis. so i was with the few whose grade was a fat INC on the online report.
but i did make time to make sure that i have something to write about. i researched on those amazon women. got books from the humanities and social science that covered the greek culture and literature. i even got to know the library staff especially those at the xero counters because of the many times i went to them. (i got pissed with the xerox boy at the ecclesiastics section, as he told me if i wasn't a girl the librarian wouldn't let me xerox the book i wanted for it was closing time.)
i wasn't one of those who dillydallied thinking there was time. I even went to the national library for references.
unfortunately, come submission day. the number of paged that i have with me did not meet the 60 pages, minimum requirement of our strict, hair pulling thesis professor. quite a few of my classmates did still pass with only 20+ pages of written work with them. i wasn't brave enough but with my friend pulling my arm to do so. i tried. but no it was too late.
what i saw on my online grade for thesis was INC. i thought it was alright because i had friends who also received the same grade. so we were grieving together.
those with pages below 60 did pass the subject you know.
but this isn't about them.
this is about the stinking justice system here in manila and how it seems to be exemplified even in an ordinary university.
one of my classmates, who i thought would have the grade same as me, did pass the subject. so, i thought wrong.
according to her she passed her thesis late, heheheh
which according to my proffesor he did not allow
how can she?
when she didn't even have anything started on the day of the submission itself?
she doesn't even go to the library? does she know even know where the CR is in the library? i heard her saying she was just going to ler her cousins borrow her books for her ....
basta naasaar ako kay dihfsdhfsdg
kasi akal kodgsdgdfgjjgjgjggerg]
shouldn't i and all those who got INC got the chance to reddem ourselves by passing our thesis not next year and by having that INC erased because after all, she did get to have a passing grade (with or withouth thesis passed). comeon!!!

Slow and Steady
They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.
It'd really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment.
They expect you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then usually decide against it.

what was i to do? was i just wandering and wondering why most of the people come in gleeful pairs? why are they all so sweet? and sometimes think that when a couple of same sex approaches me, they're gay beacuase i have no one by my side.
it rained today also. i wanted to make something out of a bastardly expedition. i wanted to meet up with a friend, but how cani whenthe forces of nature are telling me to stop? and be lonely gather what you have. think. and stroll down this stupid mall once more.
is anybody truly lonely?
is the sun a loner?
so i walked through sm north edsa. i found steven strait. once again he was making his presence felt. he had an upcoming movie and wanted me to be a truly great fan and watch it in the cinemas , make sure to bring somebody. so i checked the theter and saw that i would not have to wait that long.
as i got through the annex. i saw a huddle of people making uzi by a store. i wondered why. then the store was private joyce. i guessed joyce jimenez was ther. and i joined the crowd wanting to see a glimpse of the sexy star. she was just sitting by the cashier, not even wearing a smile on her face. well, i guess if i was her, i too would be offened. people are looking at you, saying 'si joyce, si joyce andayn', but they dont even bother to care to come see what you were selling. people were just in the store's entry prying, trying yo see her. why dont they enter and buy.
i was going home. i took the munoz route. i wanted to make hukay sa mga ukay ukay. what was it my cousins were raving about? where did they find cheap clothes, for only 20 to 50 pesos? so i surveyed the clothes the ukay ukay stores at munoz had to offer. i wanted to buy a khaki jacket. i only had 70 pesos.
unfortunately for me, the 70 pesos was not enough for what i wanted to buy. sure there were cheap items but items that i wanted could be brought at 168. and it being 168 meant it was new and not used, without any marks at all.
where did my cousins dig up their clothes?
