Fade to Black
One subtle symptom that you’re (kinda) missing college is when you long to be that then asinine, happy-go-lucky freshman who had to look up to some upperclassmen for “guidance.” I especially felt that way recently when I had to go to an org event care of Kea saving my shrunken wallet. I had to be fine foremost with being called an alumnus when some meager 15 units passed like it was just, uh well, yesterday.
So yeah, UP MCO‘s Culmination Night had the theme Bigger, Bolder, Better, which specifically asked everyone to be clad in sexy black semi-formal. (Did you know that blogger-friend Kaye is a founder circa 1993??) I have a good range of black shirts and jackets but since I wasn’t that prepared, I just had to grab my black Esprit vest to be in line with the norm.
We had it kind of bitin for an exquisite dining in Alex Grill (that fruit salad FTW!!!) due to the poor attendance. Anyhow, it was undoubtedly lovely to see the resident members (most likely I haven’t chatted for a good bit back), and of course, my fellow alumni.
After the dinner, Patty (aka “Oh, it’s Ruth Miguel!”) who dropped by, drove us alumni straight to Music Bank for the karaoke session after. It was a déjà vu moment back from last year’s same event. Only this time, I don’t get to cross-dress as a blondie with a puppy anymore. Also only this time, I am unemployed. Sucks.
What sucked more was Music Bank chock-full on a Friday night, so we just headed to Music Match, a relatively cheaper ktv haven.
So there we were– crooning, screeching, belting out Bonnie Tyler, when some asinine, happy-go-lucky me had to look up to some upperclassmen for guidance, passed like it was just, uh well, yesterday.
Before I had to blog bout this, it took maybe 20 full minutes of WordPress lag. 😦 I never saw that coming. Please don’t be like Twitter/Tumblr for that matter. That was frustrating.
