HOW COL­LEGE MEUP SCREWED

Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - Story Nights -

March 2015, six in the morn­ing. KRIIIIIIIING. Snooze. KRIIIIIIIING. Snooze. KRIIIIIIIING. Snooze. This went on un­til I heard a loud shout­ing voice say­ing “Chris­tian!!! Ligo na! Don't be late for the cer­e­mony!” Then it hit me. This b***h is grad­u­at­ing from high school. Not next week, but TO­DAY. I was SHOOKT, GIRL! No more “Bayang mag­iliw per­las ng silan­ganan,” but more in­de­pen­dence! Good­bye Ban­tayan Is­land, hello big city!

The day went by so fast. It started with the mass, and then the rites, and then the tra­di­tional grad­u­a­tion rites. We all grad­u­ated in high school so you should know what I'm talk­ing about. Next thing I knew, I was alone at 2 in the morn­ing ask­ing my­self, what now? What should I get in col­lege? Well, be­sides the al­lowance. What course should I take? In­ter­course? (But of course, I'm just kid­ding!)

2:30 a.m.: I've al­ways wanted to host events. Maybe I can be a host? I've al­ways wanted to do the “Hello mga Ka­pam­ilya, it's your Ka­m­ags Chris­tian, MagTV na!” Or the Sun­day show where they say “Kamot sa atuban­gan, ang pangutana...”

2:35 a.m.: I googled: “What course should I get, I want to host.” LOEADING. Page 1, Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Scroll, Mass Com­muni... Scroll, Mass co... Scroll. Ugh!
