One of those Blog Worthy Days

When I'm with my friends, I forget all of my responsibilities. I imagine a life where we can sleep all day, hang out in the afternoon, party all night and go out of town during the weekends.

Yesterday was a "blog worthy" day because of all the events which started when I got an Ateneo - La Salle game ticket in Taft, from a high school acquaintance.

FINALLY! The previous night, I was frantically contacting everyone if they are selling the game ticket while I was in my mom's office. When I arrived home, I asked my brother and he told me that he just saw a tweet selling the ticket, and the rest was history!

 After my trip to Taft, I went to Katipunan to meet the Manila Kid team. We need to prepare what we'll say for the Global Youth Summit happening two weeks from now. JM and I were already discussing some plans when JC texted that he can't go since his car crashed! WTF! Hope it wasn't that bad. I guess he didn't need to go to a hospital since several hours since the crash, he was watching the Ateneo - La Salle game in Cantina.

I cut our Socio-Entrep class. Went to MOA. Read that my friend whom I'll be watching the game with will be LATE. Very typical Sassy.

Good thing I saw Mikki, a high school friend, in Fully Booked. He'll be watching the game too with his block mates so we hanged out in Krispy Kreme. We're both on the blue team so I entered The Arena together with his crowd.

I bumped into Sassy, and OMG, "I waited for you outside!" Oh well. She bought a Team Ateneo shirt then looked for our seats.


Another OMG when I realized my seat was in the La Salle side! I'd rather die. During the first half of the game, I cheered when everyone around me jeered. I felt like someone will stab me. So before the third quarter started, I went to the Ateneo side, close to where Sassy and his brother seated, and found an empty chair with a good view.

After several minutes of clapping, shouting, cheering and literally jumping from my seat (my Tablet crashing to the concrete floor), Ateneo won! As my friend said, "there's the championship game, and The Ateneo - La Salle Game." Jeron Teng did not disappoint DLSU's huge expectations, but Ravena, Slaughter and Salva (and Revilla) were the real heroes of the game.

With hands raised high, we sang our alma mater song. I realized that the last time I sang this was during our graduation.

My day has yet to end.

After the game, I went to Rockwell to have dinner with Mikey. Shaq and Vix picked us up to check out Outbreak, this running event at The Fort. It was raining that night, but there were still runners on the streets.

We strolled around Burgos Circle, Boni High Street and finally ended up in Mercato. Shaq was parked in High Street so while it was drizzling, we had to share Mikey's tiny umbrella. It was 2am when I arrived home. Haven't had fun like this for a while now.

Interesting to note that while I was in MOA, Rockwell, and Fort, I saw people - in all ages - wearing their Ateneo or La Salle shirts. They're everywhere. It goes to show that school spirit transcends time and place, well sort of.
