Short Ramblings: I’m Afraid, Joule
I think it’s happening. I didn’t exactly plan it, I just thought of it in passing, the latter word meaning a few times—just in passing. I am afraid of it happening because I wouldn’t know where to start, how to ask permission, how to deal with the consequences. I’m idealistic, and I don’t want to be. At least not anymore. I’m afraid. I’m really afraid.
This is the curse Jack Kerouac gave me.
I wasn’t supposed to watch the 2014 XU Cheer dance Competition but my friends were there, despite my heavy bag filled with books and handouts and lots of pens, I went to get pushed by people and had to fight my way in the court. Nostalgia at its finest indeed.
#lawfoundfriends and our food adventures
I feel a weight on my chest. A pressure. Like my life depends on this moment.
I have not being doing my due diligence at school. I however have been keeping up with food. Lots and lots of food.
Short Ramblings: High Horses
I am writing this post as a reminder of how I’m feeling at this moment and that is anger and disappointment. It’s rea— know what? Let’s throw in disgust as a feeling as well. Okay? K. It’s really frustrating (<feeling!) to hear some classmates say how there’s a lot of people in class who aren’t gonna make it because our section has the most number of dumb people.
First of all, no. Who are these people to say that our classmates, probably even me and I’m counting myself as well coz I’m part of the class, don’t have what it takes to further into law school in the following semester or even the next few years? I’d suggest a self-evaluation but I’m sure they’ve already did making them say those things. Even the smart people in class couldn’t answer in recitations sometimes, even these foul mouthed people can’t answer the simplest questions. All I’m saying is that you should never underestimate people coz they might just surprise you. And I hope they will to teach those bitches a lesson.
Second of all, saying that the other sections are making it because most of them are smart is an unfair perception. We’re all freshmen in law, I think all of us are struggling, I think all of us are trying our best. Have these bitches even sat in the other sections’ classes? I see them in class everyday so probably not.
The thing is, the company I keep in lawschool is varied, some people are funny, some serious, some people work hard and what have you. The redeeming quality with my friends in lawschool is that they always try to help each other, build each other up. Sure it’s kind of a competition, survival of the fittest they would say, but even though there may be some chitchats and whatnots about certain people, that’s normal, that’s how society is, that’s how a group functions. At least nobody’s trying to sabotage each person’s education.
I want to end this quick note by telling myself, and for when I check out this blog in t he future that I may be reminded, to just try my best and never underestimate people, and instead, believe in them.
There Joulo, have you let it out? Good.
I wanna write stories still but lately I find myself dutifully reading stories for scholarly purposes of legal nature.
Short Ramblings: Backpacker
I was in class today and I couldn’t care less about what people were doing. I couldn’t care less if the teacher was doing a quiz or that I only read 5 out of 10 cases. I really didn’t care. I never looked at anyone today. Because, you know, I go through things too. Things I won’t divulge to anyone. Things I couldn’t reveal. I’m carrying a backpack in my heart, and it’s heavy. It’s so unbearable.
"When we ‘broke up’ I listened to this song the whole day."
I only have 3 Paloma Faith’s on my iPod. Now I’ve got four, this song reminds me of how pure talent exists and that I should never break up with you again when I don’t really mean it.
Okay, I love Ariana, she’s one of my faves right now but I hesitated listening to this song because, well, she’s so pop I’m afraid she’ll just irritate me. I checked this song out because of The Weeknd, and man, was it worth it. I love the right amount of pop in this song.
This song is one of the reasons why I should stop judging mainstream artists because I really love it. I mean, I’m no snob, I do listen to mainstream music, I love mainstream music, but sometimes they just sound the same it irritates me. That new Demi Lovato song ‘I Really Don’t Care’? It’s so bad it makes me cringe.
