i miss my friends who understand my angsts, laugh even at my corniest jokes, say such things as "we are only in the period of adjustment" after flunking another chemistry midterm on our third year and who share kwek kwek and isaw with me while waiting for the sunset at the sunken garden. how about you? what do you miss most about UP?

What I miss most is our the "kumos-kumos" a.k.a. UP meal. Have lunch at only 15 pesos:2 bbq sticks (Php5 each) and 1cup rice. The rice is put in a plastic and you don't need any plate to eat your lunch. You just have to "kumos" the rice in the plastic and eat it like an ice candy with your bbq. It's so convenient especially if you are cramming for your presentations, or projects. Another thing I miss is the UP culture. UPips are so tough that you can be comfortable joking around with them without having to worry if they'd be hurt.

I graduated from UPLB. I miss waking up early some mornings to jog from our dorm to the campus and back. I miss drinking 3 cups of coffee trying to be awake to review for an exam or cram up a paper. I miss waking up in the middle of the night to finish a report or a take home exam. I miss looking over my limited number of shirts and pair of pants deciding what to wear for that day. I miss running down the hall of the building to catch my class. I miss going to the library, not only to study, research, or borrow books, but hang out, relax and enjoy the breeze outside. I miss eating at the cheapest "carinderia" there is near the campus. I miss star gazing by myself or with my friends at Freedom Park. I miss my PE subjects, basketball, and track...LOL. I miss my department, HFDS and its cool faculty. I miss everything about campus life.... the dorm, the friends, the classes, the teachers, the food, the curfews, and every good and not-so-good experiences that made my life richer.

it would be cutting classes, smoking in sunken garden, riding a bike around the oval, walking, eating isaw/kwek-kwek/fishball/monay, meeting new people, experiencing every possible grade, and going home tired and fulfilled.

I am afraid I'd miss it so much that I'm still here after 6 years. No really, although I am itching to graduate I would miss it a lot. I've stayed in almost all of it's dormitories, I've had my heart pumped up and later burst in its corridors and gardens, I've flunked and aced exams, all highs and lows in this small corner of the world I have come to call home for 6 years. It's my longest relationship, haha, and I feel like breaking up with UP after 6 years. Some of my friends breezed through UP, merely staying for four years or three and a half for the more eager and lucky. But I, I'm still here. Taking roots. Soon I must cut the roots and say goodbye to isaw, kwek kwek and Chocolate Kiss.
