A Colorful Stroll II

I felt a drop of sweat roll down my damp forehead  –  covering my waxed hair while I listen to The Beatles’ Across the Universe. I woke up from a short nap. The car was moving fast and it was 1 AM in the morning and we were on our way back to our resting place. All the lights from the windshield looked as if they were being sucked as our vehicle moved gracefully from one colorful light to the other.. Oh, the stroll slightly not taken.

“This is our last night and by the morning, we’ll be leaving home. I truly had real fun.” I squinted while I thought of this inevitable phenomenon as I looked sideways to see my companions snoozing under the light deprived car. Kuya Empoy and I were the only ones still up for the travel.

I recollected again, as what I fancy, of the memories and lights that blinded me. And of the experiences, experiences worth repeating and reiterate the story to someone who’d gladly ponder. It all looked beautiful, the feeling of wonder and spirit of the gay crawling down your nails.

Fourth day: We went to Misamis Occidental Aquamarine Park, inhaled the sea breeze and just had a good time sight-seeing. We loved it!

Started the day by saying goodbye to Auntie Joy, Tito Em, and Ozamiz City. Aw, we did enjoy there. Next trip: a four-hour travel to Polangco, thrilled to see Dapitan and Dipolog. 🙂

Before going anywhere, we said goodbye to Lola Poping. Oh, she went back to Ozamiz. 🙂 But on the brighter side, there was a small festivity at Polangco Municipality. They call it “Family Day”.. oh, nice timing we arrived earlier!

Yii! A night walk around Dipolog and Dapitan! I wanna live here! Kudos to the people of these wonderful cities!

The one we’ve all been waiting for, Gloria’s Fantasyland at Dapitan. We’d like to be kids again! *who wouldn’t?* We acted as immature, laughing kids anyway. Love = Friends = Fun = Time of your life.

The rides and mascots! 😀

No more mascots, this time, kami na talaga ang pipicture-an. :p

Street shopping and sight-seeing at Dipolog, our last day to enjoy it all. 😦

And that concludes our fascinating and memorable (you wouldn’t even believe what we experienced at that short span of time!) six day trip. We hope we can really go back, and just like how Shakespeare’s boasted his plays, the chroniclers narrating their stories.. I simply had my share with it, my own personal story with my parchment and paper shared with the friends that intimately dwell near my heart. I bear the smile whenever that tinge of excitement is recollected, whenever that memory is flashed; that mutely wake me up in the middle of the night. Thank you.

Yet and still, the rest is unwritten..



Oh, so here’s the thought.. Many dealings and state of affairs will be crushing against my face this Christmas break. I haven’t updated and all, yet here I’ am, trying my best to write something before December, oh – this year ends.

It’s 11:30pm and I’d be leaving home tomorrow with my friends and gonna enjoy a 5-day trip in Dipolog, Dapitan, and some other related places just around. And after that, I’d be heading straight to Cagayan de Oro to spend the New Year with my family. And to think, loads of unfinished requirements plus five exams to take are in order when classes resume this January.

I don’t know if I can enjoy everything.. Im worried, yet desperate to have fun. Gaad, you know Im the tireless, party-goer, unstinting guy of the crowd who let’s the entire problem in the world be forgotten not until I lie down back in my comfy bed to remember them all again – at once. So that’s me, a psycho who thinks that his day would be incomplete without doing anything foolish, or something in between that word and adventure. But I got to do them, because reality check, NO ONE WILL. Urghh.. can I have my guardian angel please? And do it all for me? (Haha. Yeah yeah, I know, exaggerated wishful thinking.)

But Im in despair – a critical analysis in Plant Physiology, diversity studies in Invertebrate Zoology, a report in Reproductive System Development (I know right?) in Developmental Biology, and exams in Psychology and Calculus for Life Sciences. Seriously? HOWEVER, to neutralize it all, I have a wide range of books to read! (Oh thank you thank you!) Now, where’s the problem? I DON’T HAVE TIME TO DO ALL THIS STUFF AT ONCE. It’s a one way ticket to suicide.

Will I pat my back and say “Suffer now, enjoy later.”? Or just continue enjoying life? (Oh, normally, I’d choose the latter. It always ends up quite pleasing anyway.) But.. but.. I made a pact, a pact to myself that I’d do anything to get my grades back soaring the paper sheets and top lists. How can I be happy if I don’t get my grades back? So, there’s my answer: do it at the same time. (Challenge challenge!)

I’d try to balance. I’d have to balance it. I must. (Sabay lagay ng RED bandana sa ulo.. kamikaze na ito teh.)

Oh God, help me. I wish I could pull it all out. Paaaaayts! (Samurai sword!)And may we have a safe trip tomorrow. Sayonara, till I update again! (Muahaha)
