Tomorrow’s the big day, and I’m getting more and more nervous by the minute. You see, I still haven’t started writing my freaking speech for the debate. Well actually, I’m done with the ‘power’ opening (all thanks to Erin and Nicko). But that’s it. The rest of the speech is still swimming around in my head, and I have yet to collect it. I already know what I’m going to write, but with all the distractions (plus my laziness), I just can’t do it now. Anxiety just makes me crave for doughnuts.
Highlights for the day:
I managed to escape the Volleyball team tryouts.
Hooray for me! This month already has enough humiliation in store for me, and I do not want to ask for more. Imagine me, Joyce, a wimpy kid (there, I admit it) playing for the whole Freshman Assembly with everybody watching. Isn’t that a scary thought? Even Ken told me I was a lousy Volleyball player.
Joyce: Ken, lousy player ba ako sa Volleyball?
Ken: Ayos lang.
Joyce: YUNG TOTOO.
There, you see? I am lousy. T.T But I really wanted to come. If it wasn’t for my speech, I would have come. I wanted to know if I’d get in. I mean, college is the time for discovering new talents and exploring new places. What if all who tried out were just as lousy as I am? I guess I’ll never know until a new opportunity comes. Maybe in next year’s intramurals I’ll be given another chance.
I bullied someone who deserved to be.
Actually, my goal was to be nice to everybody, but this guy just kept on annoying me. I don’t want to get into the details anymore. Let’s just say I treated him like he was Nicko way back in High School. *evil laugh*
I realized something.
While eating fried dumplings with rice (my new favorite) in Chow King, I realized how sad it was to run out of food. I asked my friends if it was normal for someone to be sad when nearing the end of his or her meal. They said NO. I was teary-eyed then, and they were just laughing at me.
But it’s true! I want whatever food I’m eating to last forever. College has turned me into a glutton. It’s not my fault I have a really fast metabolism! Like what Sir Paguio said, “Katawang beauty queen, sikmurang kargador.”
I ‘accidentally’ kicked an innocent kitty.
It was accidental! I swear! It happened on our way to Math class. My friends and I were just walking with me leading the way. And then suddenly, it got in my way. I couldn’t stop walking anymore so it got kicked by my foot. It made this weird sound and ran to the side. I felt so sorry for the poor kitty. It was just looking at me, making me feel sorrier. I just said ‘sorry’ to the poor creature.
So there, all the things I managed to remember to somehow forget about tomorrow’s big event. Sigh. The things I do to procrastinate. This ends here. I seriously have to start working on my speech. I have to make sure the whole speech takes up seven minutes. Wish me luck, guys. Don’t forget to pray for me! Or else, I will haunt you forever! *evil laugh*
