So classes have finally started and just got over with its first week yesterday. After the first meeting in each class, I sorta “contemplated” and enumerated some of the things that I gotta deal with and look forward to this coming four months.
Ontology of Social Science class. After the first meeting last Tuesday, what really concerned me was the seating arrangement. The squad isn’t in the class with me because they already took the class last sem plus, no bloc mates too aside from well, Lors. The majority of the class are junior students so I knew then that I was in trouble most especially because the only available seat when I arrived (suits me right for being late the first day! Lol) was between Norvy and Kuya Richard. And believe me, any talkative person like me wouldn’t want to sit between these two guys! Ha ha! I could even remember what I told my friends and housemates the night of that same day. I kept on telling them that I hate that seating arrangement and I don’t think I could survive the next four months or so seating between those two. Mapapanis ang laway ko bes! 😅 That is why during the next meeting, last Thursday, I already sat beside Gino.
Epistemology of Social Science class. I think I am gonna love and sort of hate this class at the same time. I am gonna love it obvi because of Doc J! Damn who wouldn’t love being in his class? Whenever I am in his class, I feel like I am in one of those classes I usually and only watch in movies. Lol! He’s such a genius that though it’s gonna be hard and nerve cracking the entire sem, I know it’ll be worth taking it still. I really looked forward attending one of his classes so I think it’s a good thing that before I leave uni, i got the chance to. The problem though is that I know that I gotta strive hard to pass this course. Haha! Damn, that moment he handed us our syllabus, me and my friends couldn’t stop looking at each other, exchanging glances. Syllabus at course outline palang nosebleed at pamatay na, how much more yung readings at classes, di ba?! Ito pa, according to Doc J, if we thought reading Anthony Giddens is hard, then we’re wrong. Kung sa listahan niya, pinakamadaling intindihin s Giddens, kamusta naman yung iba? Kamusta naman si Ricouer?! This class will definitely drive me crazy and I know it! Another thing that I gotta deal with is me being stunned every time he talks. Legit na napapatunganga ako tuwing nagsasalita siya. When he does his lecture, I don’t do anything but stare at him. I can’t stop it I always forget that I have to jot down notes. Haha! I love how he says those Greek and Latin words. The words theoria, knomos, and episteme keep on ringing in my head since day one, i cannot! 😍😂
Natural Science class. I love science since the day I knew about its existence but aside from the lessons that we’re gonna take up in this class, another thing that I really (and still) look forward to are my classmates. Poging classmate to be exact! Hahaha! Since this class is a GE, then there is this big possibility that I’ll see and meet new faces from the other colleges. That’s why Iwaited for the class (Lol ang harot!). But I guess the time isn’t right yet for me, Pia and Iris to boy hunt (ano raw?! haha). Aside from dogsinupb.wordpress.com, I don’t know anything else yet about the class and the prof. I don’t even know if the prof is a he or a she! Damn. He/She didn’t meet us yet this week since he/she is in Cebu for a conference so he/she just asked us to go and visit his/her blog. Last Thursday though, we had the chance to meet and know some of our classmates for the supposed to be second meeting and we (Iris, Pia and I) can’t stop ourselves feeling a bit disappointed because there’s no one who caught our attention. We were surprised too that there’s just a few of us in the class. We expected it to be a big class. What we can just do as of now is to wait and hope that the “cute” guys were absent last Thursday and we’ll see them when the class actually starts next Tuesday. Can’t wait! Hihi. (DISCLAIMER: This is nothing serious. Pangkatuwaan lang yang paghahanap ng poging classmate para hindi boring yung class. Yung class hours kasi 1:30-3:00, nakakaantok! Lol).
PE (Frisbee) class. I don’t know what to expect or look forward to because honestly, i never get excited talking about PE. And also, until now i am still hesitant and am still questioning myself for enlisting FRISBEE FOR PE! Damn what I was even thinking?! Hadn’t have the chance to meet my classmates and prof just yet because there were no classes last Wednesday in Baguio for the Miss Universe candidates’ parade in the city. Hindi talaga ako nae-excite mag-PE! Sinong ma-e-excite gumising ng 7am aber? Worse, sinong ma-e-excite mag PE uniform every 7am in this kind of Baguio weather?! Tell meeeee!!! Damn, i hope i could find something fun to enjoy this class this sem. Haha!
International Relations class. I know since this sem started that this is going to be my fave class this sem because obvi, aside from it is a Political Science class, it’s Ma’am Mai, one of my all-time faves, who’s teaching it! That’s why instead of getting bored and all that about school on Fridays, and instead of feeling lazy since it is the only class I have to take every Friday, I feel super excited and happy about it! Pol Sci is life! ❤
First week is over but to be honest, I haven’t set my mood and mindset for the fact that it’s already the time to get back to school just yet. It is so hard to let vacation goooo! But since I promised myself that I’ll put my shits together this weekend and try and DO my very best to pull my game face out once i get back to Baguio on Monday, then I’ll try. I’ll do that. Game on! 😉
