As if I didn’t just graduate, my stupidity was at its peak when I left my UAAP Season 73 opening ticket right when I was already on my way to Araneta. It was just last year when I was entering through the South Gate FOR FREE. Good thing, self-proclaimed Fighting Maroons “stage ate (sister)” Kat has one extra, and she handed it to me as an evidence of my notorious forgetfulness.

Right now before graduation rites, I’ve been encountering attachment symptoms. I can’t seem to liberate myself from the multi-walled institution I’ve been for four years.
