College Days Randomness


I just arrived at home from Makati… Quite amazing how I\’m able to keep up even though it\’s too late. Caffeine works like charm.

We were waiting for Edison, our project coordinator, as early as 6 PM but he was caught in heavy traffic so we waited until 7:50 PM. We ate our dinner fast and headed to Starbuck Alfaro where we held our group meeting. We still managed to pull some string and had the initial database plan done even though we started late. I thought we couldn\’t get a decent place to discuss our project because when we entered Starbucks there weren\’t any good seats available. The coffee shop was crowded but we spotted a table at the back. It\’s somewhat confined and separated from the rest of the Starbucks seats; however, there were two foreign students who occupied the table before us. We kindly asked if we could share the table and it was okay with them. I think they were Korean. I couldn\’t recognize any single word they spoke so they definitely weren\’t Japanese or Chinese. They stayed at the table corner until 11 PM, studying and cuddling, so we only had a chance to take over the whole table for one hour.

All of us brought our laptops which really amused me. Everyone\’s mobile. It seems to be the trend in our school now. Or it is just because of our thesis that most students opt for mobility? It\’s logical to take your stuffs anywhere you go so that you can do something whenever you like to.

Anyway, I ordered my Coffee Jelly Frappuccino during our group dynamics and I could still feel its effect hence I\’m still up. Trivia: Don\’t you know that there are 77 Starbucks branches in Metro Manila alone? Makati is on top of the list with 28 branches.

It feels like the effect of Frappucino is wearing off soon… so, I\’m off to bed now. Zzz…
