High school life has ended and I’m now on a new journey. College life awaits. I really never though that time would be so fast. I graduated as the Salutatorian in our school and that makes all the pressure that I’m feeling right now. Of course, I’ll be having blockmates who’s more intelligent and witty than me. There’ll be expectations that I have to meet. Many dilemma will I face in the near future.
May 29-30, 2012 — My first 2 days in De La Salle University – Dasmarinas as a Lasallian. This is our Intro class. All freshman students is required to attend the Intro class as it is stated even if it has 0 units. We stayed in the ULS or Ugnayang La Salle to watch the video of the History of St. John Baptist De La Salle. I got bored as time passes and I’m sure everyone does. Finally, it ended. But it was in our great shock that we’ll be having our first class that day. We went to the building of Criminal Justice and started the orientation.
I saw those face.. the faces of my blockmates. It was very awkward because we don’t know each other and no one is talking. The room is very silent except for Ms. Beng, our proctor, who’s doing all the talk in front. We had a little conversation with her then she lets us have our lunch first then come back at 1 pm.
As I walked out of the room, I saw this one girl named Maejay. She’s one of my blockmates. I waved my hand and we had a talk. We went at 7/eleven to buy a pen then we went back and ate a cookie in the Animo Shop. After that, we went back to the room and to our surprise, some of our blockmates are already there but the atmosphere is “kruu kruu kruu” still in big silence. Everything that day is very awkward.
The next day, I experienced walking really fast trying not to be late. As I arrive, everybody was copying for the assignment that was given to us. It was a bit funny to think that it’s just the 2nd day but we already did the copying assignments thing. HAHA! We had some sharing and short-film viewing. That day, some of my classmates stand out. Ana Katrina showed her friendliness to everybody, Oliver showed his true colors, and Dianica as the intelligent one. We are still in the long way to know everyone much better.
The Intro class ended and it left us excitement for our next meeting. That day would be on June 13, 2012 (Wednesday), our first formal class as La Sallian students. ♥
