After weeks of “okay I’m going carpe diem”/”but I don’t know more than half of the people going!”/”I’m not sure if I can gooo *sad crying face*,” I can’t believe it. This weekend actually happened! I went with 9 other GUIDON people to the Hot Air Balloon fiesta in Clark Pampanga.
Officially going to Clark this weekend! Excited! Loser man but it’s my first college non-academic, just-for-fun trip heh @kaifrancisco
I remember texting my brother that we were only officially on the road to Clark at around 10pm (or later, I’m not sure). What a trip ’twas: from singing along early 90s music with Jose and Kai at the back of the car, speaking the word version in British accent and Jem not getting what we meant, to getting lost in Clark at 12 midnight, this weekend was nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
And did I mention I barely knew more than half of the people I was with? 😛
If you know me well you’d know that this is new. One, I don’t just go on joining road trips. Two, I don’t just go on joining road trips when I don’t know some of the people I’ll be traveling with. Heck, I don’t even join my own college block’s out-of-town trips! But somehow, this weekend just happened. And I’m happy I went.
To think that these people are all orgmates of mine makes me sigh in regret: Why did I not join The GUIDON earlier in college? Why did I not go to all those org outings/parties that I missed? Why do regrets happen in the end?
But I’m happy. I knew earlier on that I didn’t know most of these people, but somehow, I wasn’t bothered with that. I’m just…ready. Ready to meet new people and experience new things. I’m just ready for everything new.
I’m blessed to have gone to this trip before I graduate. I know I’d have more of trips like this for the coming month of March, because, really, that’s what you do when you’re graduating: You make the most out of it.
But for now, I have at least this trip to keep me going (and with enthusiasm!)
Homebound. What a weekend to fuel my last two weeks, and I still have tomorrow to count! 😀
