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!
