Can somebody tell me I am still a student? My 12 units are not taking much time so imagine if I only took the last 6 units really required. I am used with all stress on my back that this new life seems alien.

A proof of this indolence was last night. My desktop, out of nowhere crashed so I was left with hours ahead of zero things to do. I pulled my PI100 readings and tried to read the 19th century influence Rizal had. In just a few minutes, I fell asleep. Now, if the crashing of computer happened on any other semester, then I should have probably went to my desk and studied until the morning. But no.

Slowly, I am becoming used to this no stress lifestyle though. Last Sunday, I bought Greek and Mad Men Season 1 and more than ten movie titles. The last few days saw me cuddling my pillow, shutting my alarm clock off for another 30 minutes and eating cereals for breakfast without enthusiasm. Now who can't wait for the break?

The most critical sign of stress is now here. In one week, I bought 15 books from my favorite place in Cubao. 

Cirque du Freak collection (Darren Shan)
The Shocking Accident (Collection of Dahl, Poe and de Maupassant's short stories)
The Basic Eight (Daniel Handler's first adult novel. Yes, he is Lemony Snicket)
Black Maria (Dianne Wynne Jones, who wrote Howl's Moving Castle:D)
Legally Blonde (Amanda Brown, for some light reading)
Nicholas Nickleby (Charles Dickens)
Angus, Things and Full Frontal Snogging (Louise Rennison, because I love the movie and that is an understatement)
Night Watch (Stephen Kendrick)
July July (Tim O Brien, who writes good war novels)
Mr Phillips (John Lanchester)
You know you love me (Cecily von Zegesar, again, for light reading)
My Little Blue Dress (Bruno Maddox)
Holes (Louis Sachar, recommended by Pat Geraldez)
Don't Let go to the dogs tonight (Alexandra Fuller)
and finaaaaly,
Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Louis de Bernieres)

I know this is not the best time to indulge in this stuff. But stress is too much I need my company.

I miss late night conversation with some good ol' friends. Gone are the days I receive midnight calls every night from my high school buds and chats with childhood friends. All that remains are once a month call at 4am and rushed chats just after I ate my dinner.

A late night call.

The last one was with my beshies, who's a couple and would often invite me on a conference call. Too much of a third wheel, right? It is always fun talking with them, without the nursing topic discussion they usually have. Minus the conference calls, talking to them individually is roller coaster drama. Maan would fill me with her drama. Eman with his wishes.

I remember that last time we talked. She was crying and telling me about her being immature and such shits people cry over whenever they feel down. I pretended I am not sick with her rants and comforted her. And being me, it ended with Kim giving parental sermons to his already crying mate. Good job. 

M: Pano ba kasi maging mature?
K: Tanggalin mo yung I M.

A late night chat.

One note that remained in my mind after that chat last night with Leeo- don't expect the best from your social life when your taking a graduate degree. And I got it. This was the first time this semester we actually talked for hours. His medicine schedule kills him, he said, compared to his MMA in CSB last year.  

The biggest news is He's committed now, and not with the person he was dating before the semester starts. Now that really needs a lot of kwento to catch up. I immediately checked the profile of his new girl, who is jobless and wears braces that don't really fit with her face. 

Checking the girl's FB, I saw her About me section and saw "God answered my prayer on the 21st of September". And I am chismoso.

K: What the hell happened last Sept 21?
L: Ayun, naging kami. I was love making on your birthday!
K: Fuck you. I will forever remember your anniversary. Oh wait, I don't think you'll even reach your first monthsary. 
L: Tangna mo.

And i did typed that. I can't keep my hand shut, really. And to make the bastard of me at its best, before I logged out, the conversation went this way:

K: Sabihin mopatanggal niya braces niya.
L: You mean yung ulo niya?
K: Hindi naman:) And tell her not to wear too much neon colored shirts. Nagmumukha siyang endorser ng highlighter.

Semester is ending. I want to catch up with some friends' life too. I want early morning coffee and sunset inuman again. I want some life back.

I told myself I will study after watching this episode, but no, I ended up watching it again. Damn you Glee!
