I know, right? It’s the last emotion you’d expect to feel watching a teeny-bopper film that’s not even a least bit emotional to begin with. But I did. I cried. At the last scenes when everyone was wearing their toga, and Ms. Darbus was calling out their names and telling the whole world the paths they chose for themselves.

The slow rhythm of “We’re All In This Together” was playing in the background. The sight of everyone wearing their red togas made a faucet out of my eyes. I was confused. I didn’t know why I was crying.  I tried to hold it back, thinking that people nearby would think I’m such a dork, crying over a teen movie.  But I couldn’t fight the tears. It could be the sentimentality of the scene making me imagine the scene of my own graduation. But it could also be tears welled up by pent-up emotions that have been meaning to find release. Whatever the reason was, I didn’t care. That scene would forever be etched in my memory.

This is the last time to get it right
This is the last chance to make it our night
We gotta show what we’re all about
Work Together
This is the last chance to make our mark
History will know who we are!
This is the last game so make it count, it’s
Now or Never

This is my last year in college. This is my last chance to do everything I haven’t done–to break out of my mold and truly be what I’ve forever wanted to be.  To reach heights I haven’t reached, to do things I haven’t done.

The last few days have been very depressing for me. And now I’d have to juggle two grave emotions that have been battling inside of me for the past few days.

One, the coming of my last semester in college.
Two, the closing of one chapter in my book of life.

Oh, how I wish I could elaborate more, but that would make things a lot more complicated. If you’ve been reading my YM statuses, Plurks and Tweets lately, I know you get my drift.

I just can’t believe High School Musical 3 made me cry. Oh well, I guess I’m not really fond of goodbyes.

“You’re worse on goodbyes than I am. I’ve had tons of practice,” Gabriela told Troy. Oh how I wish I could be the same…

High School Musical 3 may be just an ordinary teen movie to everyone.  But to me, it turned out to be the movie I watched at the right time of my life.  The teens of HSM have all but said goodbye to East High, and soon enough, I’m also going to say goodbye to the place that have nestled me for the past four years.

Goodbye, UP… See you again soon!

    Itaga mo sa bato, you will also enjoy the life outside UP once you graduate. There is much to look forward to, and your stay in UP will help you weather whatever you will have to face in the future.

    Just don’t always look back. Look to the future.

    I’m also a senior student…but in high school, that is. And as much as possible, I don’t put myself into deep emotional excavation or whatever you call it when thinking about the idea of wearing a toga and whatever life there is in college.

    Anyway, I have my own review on HSM 3. And the film was kinda fun, really. 😀

    […] 🙂 If this movie went out back in 2006 when I was about to graduate, I bet I would’ve cried like JM did, as I am a sap for things like this. But it did leave me with a bittersweet feeling, as in a way I […]
