There were a series of events today that best describe who I am. Let's start off with...
In a way, I did my bravest thing today. After Fr. Dacanay's class, I didn't take the route from SEC to the overpass that leads to Katipunan. That's usually the route Steph, my crush, takes on Wednesdays as her car is color coded. Last week, I had a reason not to go (group meeting). Today, I didn't have one, so it was all up to me whether to "try" seeing my crush or not. I chose the latter and took my usual route to CCHQ, hoping not to see Steph.
And wouldn't you know it, I run into Steph. >.< I just like to comment that I DO NOT intentionally run off to follow people wherever they go and track their every movement. I'm just observant of my environment. I remember two years ago when Steph was mad at me since I seemed to pop up wherever she went. So I started avoiding her. But only ended up seeing a lot of her. It's unintentional. That's what I tell people. Somehow, they don't seem to believe me. Today is a perfect example of that situation. Didn't want to see Steph but did see her. The more I avoid people, the more I run into them. That's irony for you.
Anyway, talked to Steph and will be loaning her the Hunter x Hunter CDs next week. She's also quite busy as evident in her voice and appearance. Poor her.
I waved goodbye to Steph and headed for the I.S. department hoping I could consult with Dr. Brion so that I don't have to come to consult him tomorrow. Unfortunately, he wasn't there. Guess I'll be going to school tomorrow even if I don't have any class.
I then headed to CCHQ. Saw the cover of Initial D vol. 3. I was just apalled by the name-changing applied to the manga. Tak? Zack? Ugh. And then I noticed there's only one copy left instead of two. I called up Mich to see if she was able to get one. Apparently, she did. And apparently, I called her during her class, in which her phone was not on silent mode. Oooops. But as I said, Mich told me before that she didn't have classes on Wednesdays. How was I supposed to know that today was here make-up class?
Later, John and Carlo were browsing through Previews magazine. There's a new Saiyuki manga coming out. Katherine told us it's being published by a more "daring" publisher. Does that mean more yaoi?
Allow me to interrupt to say that Del Rey is republishing it's Robotech novels, this time in trilogies. The first one will be out in November, I think, featuring the first three novels.
Anyway, Meia was there in CCHQ. I tempted her to ponder on whether to buy the Chobits pins or not. And since I'm in semi-depression (i.e. no one really notices and I look normal instead of the aura I emit in my depressed states), I offered to buy them for her. She declined. I offered again. She still declined. =P
It's only now I realized that Meia studies in U.P.
Charles: Where do you study?
Charles: I thought you studied in Miriam.
Meia: I used to study there. Why?
Charles: You emit a Miriam presence.
Stupid me not to realize that Meia wears civilian outfit instead of Miriam uniform whenever she passes by CCHQ. Of course it also happens only once or twice a week so I assumed it was her free day when she was dropping by CCHQ, hence not in uniform, unlike Tanya who's there nearly every day so I notice when she's in uniform or not.
And then Monica (Mawsi pala...Khristine was shocked when I used that name) and a bunch of other people dropped by. I'm just assuming they're students who graduated from Miriam. And since I'm not good with names, I won't spell them out. To make a long story short, found out Monica doesn't like Justin, Jobert's brother, and is freaked out by their companions (and I presume me included). Meia wanted to tag along with them as she's free lunch at their house as Monica was doing some video editing. And the two ranted about this guy at U.P. Fine Arts who knows Monica and her friends. And this rant about a certain person who signed her Guestbook and is annoying Monica. And about someone using Pam's name to comment or something...
In the confusion with the Miriam students, there was one cute girl whom I saw a couple of weeks before that bought some Yami no Matsuei manga. I managed to see the ID. She's Atenean. Green tag - freshman. Oh well.
When they all left, Haruka/Joy suddenly popped into the store. I didn't know she visited. She was sad and frantic about all the papers she wanted to do. And me wanting to see people's smiles, I offered to buy her manga to cheer her up. And she accepted. And she was browsing through the English manga, which are way more expensive than the Japanese versions (except Tokyo Pop... Tokyo Pop manga is only P600 in contrast to Viz where it might go as high as P1000+). Eventually, she bought the Yu Watase postcards and a pack of Sakura Taisen trading cards. Of course when she went to the cashier, she did comment something about "milking the cow" when I offered to buy her stuff. ^^
Once the purchase was done, she realized it was 2 pm and was late for class. She thanked me and rushed to school. I later received a text message thanking me and then a few more minutes later she called the store to thank me again. See? There's gratitude in generosity. ^^ And I'm some P800 less.
I forgot to mention, I bought for Elbert an After Eden mug that he's been wanting since last week.
Khristine offered to buy me food to cheer me up, since that's what she did with Elbert (yes, there's a depression illness going around). Katherine rang the bell while roaming around CCHQ to drive the depression spirit away (I kid you not). Of course since food is not the way to cheer me up, I just thanked her and she later went off to buy food for her brother who is going to India.
When Khristine got back, she said that it was drizzling. Went back to school wearing my jacket and headed to Bellarmine, where I again saw Elbert. Philo class was fun and hopefully I'll only be having one Philo class next week.
Normally, I'd go home after Philo but I didn't have a ride home. I managed to snag Russ and so I went to the LitSoc meeting even if I told them the other day I wasn't going. The things I do for my org...
They have yummy blueberry cupcakes! And strawberry but I didn't get to taste that. They also had chocolates and chocnut but you know how I'm allergic to that. Tanix and Riasa were there since they're officers. Oh yeah, LitSoc's officers are all female. So when our moderator was looking for members to join the new formation committee which will plan what the org's activities are, the only recruits he got were all guys. Wow. Our officers are all female and our formation committee are all male. Things balance out... in the end.
Got home in time to watch the last episode of Saiyuki. And then went to sleep. I'm exhausted. Yey! Daimira's blog is up again. I love Detective Conan too!!! I got manga #1-8 when I was in fourth year high school for around P250 each. And then I gave them to a friend who loves Detective Conan as well. >.<
