I think I now know what the guy who wrote Memoirs of a Geisha meant when he said that an afternoon was both one of the best and one of the worst of someone's life. Yun pa lang nababasa ko sa libro- I borrowed Tricia's copy on the way to Quintin's place. But still. You get the point. Bilhan mo ako ng copy!!! =P

That, I guess, was utterly pointless.

You are given a girl who doesn't have the faintest idea of how to use a pipette, and a bacterial culture that needs to be transferred into another test tube. What do you think will happen?

Yup, nakatapon nanaman ako ng culture sa Labtech. It was our show for SIr Espie. He did, after all, give us 1.00s for this quarter. =>

Tinakbuhan ko ang English class ko.

I'm serious. Because I couldn't give my speech. I couldn't and I couldn't. So halfway through my first paragraph, I just faltered, and told the class I'd just give it next week. Not exactly told. More of like begged.

Sometimes karma is so fast.

Hindi mo kayang hulaan ang ginawa namin sa Labtech ngayon, unless Labtech ka.

Nagbalat kami ng soybeans, na kidney beans pala.

May technique pa kami!

Kami pa rin ang nahuling natapos.

I am mentally incapable of writing poetry, English or Filipino.

So I'm stuck.

I trust mind-bending long tests a lot more than simple ones. The simple ones carry deception in them- they are easy, and are easily perfectable. They make you more careless. And it is far worse to be haunted by a mistake caused by not adding the moles of the solute to the moles of the solvent or by thinking cos0=0.

---

Anyone can perfect a long test if they studied hard enough, worked carefully enough, put in enough of their effort and time and soul. But hardly anyone can perfect a long test with no effort at all.

Get the point?

"Bakit ba lahat na lang na-associate ko sa Bio.,Chem., at Physics?"
 "Hayaan mo lang , Jill, at pagdating ng next week lahat maassociate mo sa Math 4. Real life problems na ang susunod nating topic."
"Ang real life problem naman, babagsak kami sa Math 4..."

"Hindi ko alam kung paano maglaro ng Nature Park."
"Shame on you!"

"You really should leave, you know. Save yourself."

"Why are you always staring at me?"
"Do you realise how vain you sound?"

"Anong Tagalog ng kidney?"
"Batang tuhod!"
"Mike!!!!"

"I could attract the butterflies, but no, I have to attract the creepy ones..."

"... and don't throw my advice back at me!"

"... are you sure I'm not allowed to throw your advice back at you?"
"I realise only now how useless it all was..."

"You promised not to get mad at me!"
"I'm not mad at you!!!"
"Yes you are!!! You're shouting at me!"
"I'M NOT SHOUTING AT YOU!!!!!!"

"Pwede na tayong magtayo ng soybean factory!"

"You may be right, or I may be right, it's just relative. Relativity."
"... Di ba ang relativity, e=mc^2?"

---

... gaano kalayo ang sanlaksang hakbang?

---

... gaano ba talaga katagal ang buhay?

Nakasulat sa Labtech/Bio. room blackboard:
"Anong importanteng mangyayari sa araw na ito?"

An arrow leads from that to:
"Ngayon ibibigay ang verdict ni Erap!"

Nakasulat sa paper na nag-cover ng "cotton plug" ng Erlenmeyer flask kung saan linagay ang greetings para kay Sir Espie:
"Happy Birthday Sir!!!
"Paki balik na lang yung flask kay Ma'am Len pagkatapos!" 

Trish to the classroom after math:
"E kasi parang lahat sila ganoon!"

Me to Trish:
"Kung ginagawa ba ng lahat, ibig sabihin ba noon tama?"

Me to Norman on the way back from the gym:
"Kung maayos natin 'to, mananalo tayo. Kung maayos natin."

Icia to me while practicing that batch dance:
"Jill, nagsindi ka ba nanaman ng posporo?"

Norman to me, after practicing the batch dance:
"Alam mo ba, sa bawat posporo na ginamit mo, nagrrelease kay ng carbon dioxide sa atmosphere?"

Me to Manu:
"The sources aren't due till the end of the week!"

Me to Airah:
"Ngayon na sila due?! Akala ko any time during the week...!"

One of the many things I learned in Pisay is that, just because you have high grades and are good at math and science doesn't mean that you are intelligent, that you are worthy of respect, that you can think well, or that you can think at all. And just because you aren't as good at math and sciences as others are, or just plain aren't as good as others are, you can still be respected for your intelligence.

Some people you respect since you share the same values and priorities. Some people you repect because, even if they think differently, they can still make their points made. Some people you respect becaue they know how to concede to your own points when necessary. And some people you just regard with awe when you manage to catch them thinking.
