Twisting the Arms of Fate

Sometimes, the sembreak does not inject fun running into my bloodstream anymore. The once happy thought has now suddenly disappeared. Hearing the word alone seems like the heavens have fallen down on my shoulders. Whenever sembreak approaches, what was supposed to be excitement is replaced by fear of having the enjoyment of life taken away for weeks. And the moment sembreak arrives and stops in front of me, I am like a cigarette addict waiting for that small stick of nicotine to touch my peckish lips again. And that nicotine for me is, surprisingly, school days.

But don’t get me wrong. Yes, way back when I was young, not to mention small, I love breaks. Who doesn’t, anyway? Even simple recess periods can make that tiny ‘dimple’ (yes, even in its not so obvious size, I actually consider it a dimple) in my left cheek appear and eventually put a smile in my face. Now that I’m approximately ten years older, my point of view about sembreaks and vacations in particular, were changed a lot. Doing the activities in the likes of sitting in the sofa with nothing to do but face either the idiot box or the computer is nothing but an old cliche now. Well, at least for me.

As the years pass by, school days have actually provided more fun now than when I was younger. The then doomsday for me is now my newly found heaven. Looks like the world is upside down for me now. I feel lighter when I am inside the four corners of an air-conditioned classroom rather than that in my own room. Perhaps I love the outside world better now. To add up to all of it, it seems that what my dad told me back in fourth year high school proves itself to be true.

Enjoy your high school and your future college life. They’re the best things education can give you. Consider the fun as a compensation for all the hardships you’ll get.

Well I guess that’s exactly what’s happening as of now. And in just a span of three days, the fun is about to begin, again. At siguradong magiging makulay na naman ang buhay ko.

    Nako. Kapag break, I try not to be excited sa pasukan. Naiinis ako pag gusto ko ng break habang nagkaklase.

    Namiss ko lang ang LB, but I love Sembreak syempre. Haha. It gave me the luxury of time to read a lot of books. And para makabawi sa mga puyatan last sem.

    Hey! Your post applies to me too. I find myself really bored to the point that I’m now looking forward to going to class. But it’s not the lessons I’m excited about. I guess I just want to be with my friends. 😀
    (I didn’t know you have a dimple. haha!)

    Padre Salvi – haha, parang ganyan din nararamdaman ko ngayon.

    utakGAGO – palibhasa marami kayo don eh LOL.

    Anna – that’s exactly it. maybe it’s not a dimple. I do consider it one, though.

    No definite semestral break for me this term. Just wasted my time [the entire week] on Singapore, which lead to me to 2 absences already. Oh well. Sayang rin naman yung plane ticket fee.

    And I did enjoy vacation there on Merlion Land. I get to flush out the stress out of my system and I’m fully charged to kick some college ass.

    anyway, bihira ang tulad mo na mas gusto pumasok na pagka sembreak. 😀
