Fresh Grad Blues (isang pagse-senti ng gutom)

A year ago, our class mailing list was flooded with complaints and ramblings of how real life sucks. It made me do a little essay-rant – in Filipino (because yanno, I write in my native language, too) and now I share this with everyone, both those who are still in school and those who are stuggling in the real world. Also, this is to prove that I don’t use the word penis in all my writings.

Fresh Grad Blues
090106
(Para sa UST CA4 ’06)

Biyernes ng madaling araw, alas tres. Nanunuyot na ang mga mata mo’t nagsusumigaw na pahingahin mo na sila. Ilang oras ka na rin namang nakatutok sa encyclopediang binabasa mo, este compilation pala ng mga photocopied articles tungkol sa mga kaso laban sa COMELEC. Ang dugo mo ay pinag-halong kape at Extra Joss at ang iyong mga labi, bestfriend na si Marlboro. Walang humpay ang kaibigan mo (na eventually naging kaaway mo na naging kaibigan mo ulit) sa kaka-text sa ’yong i-email mo na yung Chapter 5 ng thesis dahil toka mo yun.

Sounds familiar?

Ito tayong lahat ilang buwan bago ang graduation. Feeling natin sobrang busy na ng buhay, para bagang napagkaisahan ng mga guro, paaralan at buong educational system na pahirapan ang mga malapit nang mag-martsa sa entablado at pilitin silang sumuko sa laban. Pero hindi, hindi maaari. Dahil sa dulo ng lahat, may nag-aabang na pa-premyo – isang diploma (at kung swerte ka, medalya pa).

  3. huwaw kind’a reminds me when i got out of college too.

    yeah i really hate it when they say “they don’t teach you this and that in school, only in the real world” well f*ck them. I got here ’cause I pushed through college.

    nice post. everyone’s gotta stand proud and say “I’ve been through hell and am still alive to laugh about it”

    sadly i just hate it when I see someone who’s been through rigorous training on something like engineering or management or whatever and then end up in a call center

    I seriously lose consciousness when I attempt to read Tagalog essays longer than two paragraphs. So yeah, email me pls.

    @ RJ

    WHAT PENIS? OH! THAT PENIS!!!

    @ Kirby

    yeah, I know.. More often than not though, it’s not always their choice, much like how people are studying nursing because of the whole trend, even though they’ve always wanted to be say, a painter.

    @ Ade

    LAGOT KA KAY EROS ATALIA (OR KAY TOBIAS, KUNG SINO MAN NAGING PROF MO)!!! The English version doesn’t really have the effect. It’s rather lame and gay.

  6. Ade

    Wait, CA4 ka rin?! OMG!

  7. funnysexy

    FASHADA!!! CA4 ka din?? wow…

  8. I know people on the island that speak Tagalog and yet I can still only read the cognates or the words that are the same in English.

    I’m so full of FAIL.

    There are a lot of Pinoys in Hawaii (just like the Japs) and maybe, just maybe you can read ’em this composition and let them laugh at it. XD Also, I’d like to see you speak my language. That’d make you WIN.

  10. I know, a lot of my friends are Pinoys. You mean read it and laugh at me? XD Cause I would suuuuck. Someday, for your amusement I will.
