Our Chem 14 finals was scheduled to start at 9:45 am today.

Considering that one can get exempted from the Chem 14 finals, we were all on tether hooks as to when the exemption list would come out.

So we waited. (Admittedly, we submitted our last Chem requirement that goes into the class standing on Wednesday, so Thursday was the earliest we could hope for an exemption list.) Yesterday we waited. To no avail.

Trebor said this: "9:30 am bukas lalabas yung exemption list tapos 9:45 am yung test." I tried not to think that this might come true but...

Today is the manifestation of that morbid statement. With special spices thrown in, of course.

Today at 9:00 am or so, I texted our president to ask him if the list had come out (I think JF is sick of seeing my panicky messages - I sent him some yesterday also.). He said it still hadn't.

At 9:25 am, I met many of my classmates outside the Department of Physical Sciences and Mathematics (which is the department our teacher belongs to). Still no list.

At 9:30 am, I asked one of my classmates if he was mad (at our teacher?). He asked me if I had a gun (erm, who knows what he was going to do with it?). Unfortunately I had no gun and the only long pointed thing I had in my bag was my red fan. Donk.

At 9:32 am, I told same classmate that we wouldn't be waiting outside the DPSM looking like abandoned cats if he had just seduced our teacher. Classmate listening in on our conversation laughed crazily.

At 9:39? am we saw our teacher enter the building and stride into the DPSM, our mouths hanging open.

At 9:42? (am) he strode out and posted a paper with black and pink ink and a lot of numbers (all the student numbers printed with pink ink were exempted, the black student numbers weren't) on the wall post near us. We ran to the paper like it was the one Holy Grail that promised salvation (este exemption). Imagine our extreme dismay when we found out that it was the list of another class.

At 9:43? (am) our attention was drawn to another paper with black and pink ink and a lot of numbers that he posted on a wall post a little farther. We ran and well... I heard delighted shrieks from some of my taller classmates. It was the Holy Grail exemption list!

Of course since I was short I couldn't see anything. Boo. Eventually the taller classmates moved away with expressions of relief on their faces and I was able to see my student number and departmental exam scores written in pink. Exemption! :)

And then I turned around and walked back and renewed my studying for my Komunikasyon III finals.

Lesson learned: Yes, this can happen. This is not a bad joke cracked by Trebor-san. It happened. Boo.

I don't know if it may happen in other schools (or other UP campuses, at least), but it may happen here. >_<

Scratch that, it happens period.


From my first contest (April 2006):

Even before I met you I was entranced by the colors your voice evoked. Your personality is demanding, powerful. Your second year section is Adelfa. I'm envious of your really good singing voice. You've got good fashion sense, and few are as daring as you - not to mention you can pull it off.

I still mean what I said then :)

Belated Happy Birthday Nikki-san :) Hope it was a great day for you :) Sorry for the very very late greeting :(

It's still a long way off.

Tomorrow, I'll be busting my brain calculating rate laws and determining the direction of equilibrium shifts.

Tomorrow, Sunday, and Monday will be lost to reviewing for the dreaded Math 100 finals.

Tuesday, 4:30-6:30 pm, probably at Little Theater unless I'm mistaken, Math 100 finals. Uguuuu~, as a certain anime character would say.

Boo. 13 days or so of napping like crazy and then it's back to the grade grind with Math 101 and PI100. >_<

There's something oddly ironic in the fact that the last day of my summer before summer classes is my 19th birthday.

Ah, my head hurts too much to figure it out right now.

Anyway, I wish all of you with finals and tests and the like luck :) Matatapos rin ito. Hahaha.


Hmmm, I want to watch the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. :) My favorite turtle was always Raphael :) Even have an action figure :)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a fandom all of us siblings (there were four of us running around in the house) could share (very rare since 8 and a half years separate my eldest brother and I). We had the games, the action figures (we even had a Shredder who became topless for some undetermined reason) with their own sewer place, even kid-sized weapons (plastic). And of course we watched the TV show every time it was on TV. We also had some comics :)

So of course all of us "controlled" one turtle when we played. My eldest brother was Leonardo, my sister was Michaelangelo, my brother (still older than me by two years) was Donatello, and I played Raphael. Ah, good times in an otherwise bleak childhood. :|

Okay, second thing I'll do after my Math 100 finals is to watch that movie. ^^ (First thing will probably be to sleep like the living dead for 30 hours or something.) Movie, please don't suck or I'll feel cheated of my childhood memories. :(

Oh, uso rin dito sa Diliman ang mga releasing-the-exemption-list-minutes-before-finals happenings. Lalo na sa amin sa EEE. I just overheard a few older members ng org talking about this. And I think that also happened to one of our EEE11 sections (programming class that our batch takes). And to other Chem16 sections too. It's all in the prof, really -- mas masipag na prof, mas maagang exemption list. :)

Summer = BOO. Excluding Holy Week, one week lang ang "summer vacation"!?! Boo.

Eeek. Ah well, at least it also happens. I think there's something worse though that happens here...

April 3 - Math 100 finals (4:30-6:30).
April 4 - Math 100 removals.

Eeeek. Removals should have a long preparation time :(

Summer = BOO. Excluding Holy Week, one week lang ang "summer vacation"!?! Boo.

Oo nga eh. Naimbento pa kasi ang summer classes eh. >_< I think there's another week after summer classes that can technically be considered "summer" (no classes). So technically two weeks (not counting Holy Week). Donk.

At least we'll have a lighter (??? uguuu~ 24.5 units kami next sem) load in the next semester...

Ohh :(

Er, at least we'll have a lighter load in the next semesters? *mourns loss of summer still*

Are you just taking Chem this summer? Or are you taking any other subjects? I'd honestly rather take Chem this summer than Stat (eep, something STR-related again) but we're tied to our imposed schedule here. :(

just chem (and chem lab) actually.

Meep. Self misses Chem lab for some reason. (We'll never have Chem lab again, I think. The other chem subjects we have in the next semesters don't have lab anymore. Boo.)

We have PI 100, Stat and Stat lab. I have no idea what stat lab is or what we'll do there, though some of us reckon that computers might be involved. (For that matter, I really haven't seen a computer laboratory here in UP Manila, so I have no idea what we'd use if Stat lab is so.)

Meep. *waves goodbye to imagined hypothetical summer filled with sleeping self and undefined happiness* Whoever doesn't have summer classes is very lucky. :( Ah well, it might help us in the end. (Uguuu~) Kaya natin 'to :) Somehow.

Meeeeeep :)

Hinahanap ko post mo every day.

*blush* Yeah, Intarmed has been eating away at me :( I keep wishing that there be more than 24 hours in one day so I can eat, sleep, study, and blog :(

Meep :) Ok naman, sana hindi ako magremovals sa Math 100 (I actually have no idea if I need to because Sir has only returned one out of three departmental exams) :| How are you? How's vacation?

Magsu-summer din ako!!!

Eeeeep! :) Kailan mag-uumpisa ang summer ninyo?

Sana nga masaya yung TMNT.

I am hoping very feverently :) Although my brother has expressed his disgust for the movie (He watched it without me *sad*) :(

THey look like clay figures!!!

:( Oo nga, parang Gumby na hindi na ewan. Donk. :|
