I hate it when it rains. It’s either you’re compelled to feel utterly blue or just plain sentimental. Nostalgic, may I add. I love reading my archives. That’s why I almost broke down to tears (the mere impossibility of me crying makes it a bit credible) when my former host’s (Iconrate) server crashed down and with it my 2003 archives. It’s as If I didn’t exist in 2003, in the net for that matter.

The ugly head of March is slowly rearing its head, and with it comes the commencement of my freshman year here in UP. I haven’t experienced much but I can say I went through a lot of things (struggles) in this University. In the coming days the UPCAT results will be released, and I just can’t forget to remember how it first felt when someone told me I passed (it was Mico and I was in Belette’s house then; at first I didn’t believe him. =p). The fact that I’m getting older (bleh!) and that new “kiddies” will come ushering in next semester saddens me a bit, but I guess that’s just how things are supposed to be. Still, I can’t wait to see the faces of the freshermen when they come to their first day of classes, seemingly lost, looking at all the trees, pointing at all the buildings and asking people where Room TBA is. Haha! Now I’ll know how it feels to be an upperclassman. Hehe… time to bully all freshies! (Just Kidding. ^__^ not all upperclassmen do that)

There are many perks of being an upperclassman but I guess there are many irks too. More responsibilities, more paperworks, more readings, less time, less social life, less net time, and all the other hoopla.

Oh and by the way, I’m considering shifting to another course. It’s a matter I haven’t been able to discuss in the dinner table (or with my parents, for that matter). I don’t know how they’d react when I tell them I’m having thoughts of shifting; I can’t wait to see their I-told-you-so expression thinking that I’m the rebellious teenager last year who bullied them into taking Journalism as his major and now he’s considering shifting?! Oh my heck… I don’t know how to break it to them.

I’m most probably shifting to AB Psych, but I’m not yet entirely sure. I just don’t think I’m fit for Journalism. Sure, many people say I write (legibly) articulately but I guess my style of writing isn’t for the papers. Plus, I take into consideration what a friend told me about studying liberal arts, that when we study our craft we lose its essence within us. I think he’s right; writing isn’t something you can put inside a box with all the technicalities if you’re born with it (modesty aside). I think those who should take courses on Liberal Arts are those who want to know further about the craft, otherwise they’d just be hearing echoes of what they already know.

So there. I don’t know if Psych is the right course, but I’m getting an inkling to it; I don’t know, I’m just really interested in knowing how people think and how their thinking affects other people’s thinking as well. Sigh… I thought this’ll be easy; it’s way harder than I thought. I hope you’d all help me out on this… I want to here your comments on these life-changing matter I’m currently in. Thanks!

    dont shift. kung saan ka passionate, dun ka magstay. kasi kahit anong mangyari, di mo tatantanan yun. kahit hindi ka panjaryo, kung ano ang ikaw, at kung ano ang gusto mo, yun ang sundin mo. pero i think magfifit ka naman sa dyaryo eh. at hello? ung hindi man, papabayaan mo nalang na parepareho ung nasa dyaryo? put some jm in the papers.

    well you can see it both ways. that the technicalities can either box you or open you up to a new wider world. ikaw iyong makakaalam nun. you can study all there is in it and find where you fit, and for the geniuses out there, find where they don’t and make their own(where some would find out early enough that they should make their own). unless you get into it, then you wouldn’t really know, again unless you are on the side of the deviation where you like it but it clamps you up.

    if your argument is really such for not continuing with journalism, then what would make you stay in psychology or any course for that matter? or in another way of saying it, that same reason can also be applied to psyche if love it so dearly and then transfer to another course which interests you. then you can either be the genius or the lost kid for that matter :)

    di pa ako nakatulong ano? haba na ng sinabi ko. sesegundahan ko na lang si jav :) unless you will have another argument :) you know where to reach me.

    manggorio
