and yet this heart of yours is nameless. why?
oo. it’s a simple discipline. forgoing things like that just because no one is watching and no one will find out, that’s where the chaos that is the general lack of discipline starts. we can’t ignore rules just because we won’t be penalized if nobody else knows.
in all honesty, I kind of hated this song when it came out. I thought it was boring and kind of cliche. and basically just never really got into it.
but shit changes when you hear someone who can’t really sing, sing it in your direction (because of implications and assumptions, I prefer the phrase “in your direction” than “to you”) with this incredibly stupid yet unbelievably adorable smile on said person’s face.
and you have to struggle to stay on your feet and keep a straight face as that stupid/adorable smile knocks the wind out of you.
and you start talking/typing like you’re in the middle of some cheap paperback romance novel.
and life is actually kind of rad, for a few stupid minutes.
as a freshman, the first thing I bought that would identify me as a UP student was an ID lace. the thick kind. in foresight, I find it weird that I actually used it for my ID. walk around UPB for one day and you’ll probably be able to count on one hand the number of people actually wearing their ID’s. presently, I use it for my press ID and keep my school ID in my wallet.
then, because we were freshmen, we had to buy PE uniforms. I don’t wear my PE uniform much outside of the days when I actually have PE class. my shorts
were eaten or something have kind of been lost for a while now, no idea what happened to them.
by the time Freshie Night rolled around, my blocmates and I were sporting personalized jackets: black zip-up with gold embroidery. the design on the back is a CAC3 emblem thing that’s shaped like a spade. our resident sketch artist designed it for us. on the front, there’s a sort of silhouette of Oble, and our names were sewed onto the inside pockets.
I also have quite a few items from organizations. a blue Alliance of Concerned Students t-shirt from our 32nd anniversary, two shirts (one serious and one chummy, black with silver print and white with colored design respectively) from Tanghalang Bayan ng Kabataan sa Baguio’s 26th anniversary and a leather-ish necklace with our logo from the same event. and, for our pool project last semester, a TaBaK Baguio Music Pool jacket.
then of course, there is the
paper-thin shirt from the National Training Service Program. we only get one for both terms. mine, I kind of took out my frustration with the NSTP on it and fashionably ripped it up. it’s still wearable, in a way. just not a particularly honorable way or the way in which it was originally intended.
what kind of wearables identify you as a UPian?
13 ways to break the ice
“hi I think I love you let’s be friends and stuff”

I actually don’t know a lot about ice breaking because
