300th Post Special!! Updates and Upcoming Projects here on my blog!!

Yo! Yo! Yo!

This is my 300th entry!! OMG!! I didn’t expect I made that much already. Damn.

To express my happiness about this milestone, I will be sharing to you guys some official updates of my blog!!

Yeeeeeeeeee!!!

There will be alot of changes around here. Like BIG CHANGES, but don’t you worry, my blogging won’t be ruined. It might even improve. We will see. Heh. I just want to try some stuff out and see if I could really accomplish it and make it my own.

vlcsnap-2018-12-17-17h39m55s504


FIRST, the biggest update and change I have would be me implementing a new posting schedule. Yeeeee!!! After changing it again and again last year, I was able to find a balance schedule to cater to all my needs and liking. Heh. I think you guys already know that I have a habit of scheduling my entries beforehand, so having a legit concrete posting schedule helps me alot in time management.

The scheduling goes like this:

Sunday – Anime reviews
Monday – none
Tuesday – Special
Wednesday – none
Thursday – Features (Movies, TV Series, Music, etc.)
Friday – none
Saturday – Anime reviews

As you can see from above, all my anime reviews are to be moved on weekends. I really do want to post alot more anime reviews as much as I can, but if I want to cater my other interests, I decided to minimize it to 2 days per week. At least this way too I can also prevent myself from rushing everything and just easily post them. Btw, as of writing this special post, I had scheduled over 20 anime reviews already so…everything is good. XD

As for my entries on Thursday, it will be filled with my other contents here on my blog. While I was posting the 12 Days of Anime and the Christmas break last year, I was able to restart my interests. I started reading books again, though I find my pace really slow as of the moment. I also recently watched tons of movies, anime and not, which are really fascinating and full of feels. I might also try and watch some tv series that had been on my backlog of quite some time now. And of course, music…I need to be updated. Heh. Expect alot of great stuff every Thursday, though maybe most of it are not anime-related, they are still the things I enjoy so I hope you guys would appreciate them.

Lastly, the entries I’ll be releasing on Tuesday are special entries. You guys might be wondering what is “special”. Uhhhh…Its the slot were I post entries that doesn’t belong in any feature, I guess. I mean as of right now, I do have a weekly project that I will announce down below that will occupy the said special slot. I am also bringing back my “Monthly Rundown” feature too, though I am still in doubts if I should do it every month or bimonthly instead. Just know that this feature, along with some special projects I have yet to announced, are to be posted every Tuesdays. Heh.

This is going to be fun.

SECOND update/change I have here on my blog would be related to the special weekly project I mentioned above.

I will be watching weekly shows and cover them here on my blog. I know I expressed my complains about weekly aired animes in my 12 DoA entry, but I can’t hide my desire to atleast give this one a shot. I’m not doing this to be “in the hype” with the community, but more on I want to immediately express my thoughts about the weekly animes I plan to watch. Rather than posting each anime everyday, I planned on compiling all my thoughts on each weekly anime in one entry and post it on Tuesday. I’m still not sure which animes I will cover, but I think I will do what I always do, watch everything then drop the meh ones later. Heh.


THIRD. I think I mention this before on my New Year’s entry that I plan to create some monthly specials here on my blog. Everything is now finalized that’s why I’m going to announce this now:

I’ll be doing a Special on February.

Yeeeee!!!

The special project will happen on Feb. 10 – 16, 2019, the week of Valentines Day. I’ll be posting reviews of romance animes on each day on that week. Hehehehehe. I haven’t tried this before so this is going to be fun.

I also want you guys, my dear readers, to recommend me some Romance Animes to watch on that week. I love romance stories, but for some point, I kinda don’t watch much Romance Animes. That’s why, this project pretty much encourages me to watch them. Please do recommend some good stuff.

I’ll have more special projects for this year too, though I can’t announce them yet.

LASTLY, I’ll be participating in Yomu’s Collab project. I decided to join this project cuz…Why not? I always wanted to join a collab so this was a big opportunity to me. Check out the collab in this link.

Though, I had wanted to watch True Tears, it was the other anime that I had already seen, This Art Club Has a Problem, was chosen. Believe me, I have no problems with the latter anime. When it aired years ago, I remember enjoying it and I barely remember it anyways. Also, I just so happen to get a BD copy of the anime last year. It must be fate!!

As of right now, I still don’t know when I’ll be posting the entries for this project. All I’m sure about is that it won’t be on the occupied days and I will start next week. Heh.


Oohohohohoh!!

I am sure busy this year. I hope everything goes smoothly.

Thanks again for reading!!

Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

This is a start of something new.

With the end of 2018, I want to look back on some interesting stuff I did here on my blog and my life. After that, I’ll share some goals that I have for myself and for my blog on 2019.

I’ll try not to make this entry longer than it should be, so let’s start!


…from my personal life

I think the biggest thing that happened to me this year would be…me…becoming a licensed Psychometrician. For sure not many of you know what it is about. Psychometrician is a professional that practices psychometrics, the science of measurements. It’s a profession that focuses on administering psychological tests/assessments and interpret them. Getting a license means I am now a certified Psychometrician and I can practice. Though, it is kinda hard to find jobs related to my prefession. Heh.

Still, this was a huge accomplishment to me because I was able to prove to myself that I had what it takes to pass the exam. I also was able to prove that I am not a failure, not to my family, relatives and friends, but to myself. It was a sweet success.

vlcsnap-2018-11-23-16h19m20s936

Another highlight of my life would be my first job, being a barista trainee in a cafe. I think I never shared this one before, but yeah, I worked in a cafe earlier this year. My stay there was short, but I still learned alot, especially about customer service. Being able to communicate and make sure the customers feel happy in the cafe was alot of work, but I really learned alot. It’s a shame I wasn’t able to learn how to make coffee drinks, but atleast I do know how to make drinks other than coffee. 😉

If I had highlights, I also have really down parts. I am not happy about it, but it can’t be helped. Life’s always unfair, its on how we overcome it and stand up against it that makes everything worth it.

vlcsnap-2018-09-17-00h36m43s831

Enough drama, let’s proceed to my blog highlights!


…from my blog

I really did it. I shared alot or made alot of entries related to music, tv series, and movies, which is a huge accomplishment to me. As much as I love anime, I also want to share to you guys my thoughts about the other mediums of entertainment too. Though, it is quite disappointing that I literally had no posts in the later half of the year. Lel.

I’ll do my best this 2019, I promise.

whensiriuswrites-music-feature-music-review-blackpink-1st-mini-album-square-up-teaser-poster-1

Another highlight of my blog would be the huge amount of backlog anime review content on my blog. As much as I want to be updated on the new animes, I just can’t helped to watch the old animes. I am also happy that I was able to introduce some of them to you guys. Though, I do admit that I haven’t watched the known and mainstream old animes. Heh. I’ll get to them eventually.

alljojo's

I also like the special posts I did:

I put alot of effort into making them, so I feel really proud of it.

I’m still shocked that I have 3 nominations of Real Neat Blog Award, even though I don’t see my blog as neat. It’s still weird. Ah! I do wanna point my frustrations in creating the Create-a-story tag. Compared to the other special posts, I had a hard time make this one. I kept on rejecting alot of short stories I made for the tag, and in the end, I posted a mediocre one. It was a last minute change, but oh well, I can’t change it now.

Recently too, I was able to participate in the annual project, 12 Days of Anime. I think I already shared how much I wanted to join this event in my previous 12 DoA entries so I won’t say it again. Though, I do feel bad for not making “quality” content needed for the project. Like in the Create-a-story tag, I was consumed with anxiety the whole time I made the project, and rejected alot of ideas even though I already prepared them for the project. It was a stupid move of me. I’m sorry, I will do my best next time.

whensiriuswrites-anime-review-after-thoughts-comic-girls-kaos-02

If I remembered it right, it was around the beginning of the 2nd half of the year when I decided to make a page and fully publish my content in facebook. It was a huge step up from me because I really don’t want other people to know I had a blog, but meh, I still did it anyway. Screw them. Still, I knew what I did was right. I got alot of attention and I am a really thankful cuz people I know appreciated my blog, even though I was mainly talking about a niche medium. Because of it, it boosted my views and followers to the height it is today. Yeeee!

Of course, I won’t forget the milestones I experienced this year. Damn.

I actually accomplished 2 milestones. The first one was the 100+ followers (which I made an post about) and recently, 200+ followers (which I wasn’t able to make a post about it). I am really thankful to all of you, because getting that much support that fast is still shocking to me. I feel like I don’t deserve all of this, but still, I am very gratefull. I will do my best to continue to make alot of content that will not only satisfy you guys, but also myself.

I guess, that’s it for 2018. I’m not really sure if I had forgotten something, oh well. Let’s move on and welcome the new year 2019.

For this year, I have alot of plans. As of right now, I won’t be sharing them yet, I still need to prioritize my IRL work schedule before anything else. After everything would be sorted out, then I’ll announce some awesome stuffs in the future. Stay tune for future Updates!!

I’m not really a fan of new year’s resolutions and stuff, I don’t usually reach them anyway. Rather than resolutions, I do have goals that I atleast want to achieve this year. Some of them are just goals that I wasn’t able to reach in 2018, and hoping would be reached this 2019. Yeee.

For my personal life, my main goal is work-life balance. With me, having a vast knowledge in the in and outs of an industry and organization, I know that its is hard to achieve it. Still, if I want to be able to do everything I want and need to do, I’ll achieve that work-life balance no matter what.

Another goal I plan to achieve would be saving alot of funds. I think all of us wants this too. Lel. I want to buy the stuff I always wanted to buy. hahahaha.

For my blog, I planned to revive my other featured contents on my blog and be able to do more special entries. Special entries like doing a monthly specials and do some collabs. I won’t rpomise anything but I’ll make it work.

I might also start upgrading my blog, like monetizing it or even gaining some profit while blogging. I’m still not sure when would this all happen but I know its sooner than later.


I guess, that is all for now.

Again, Happy New Year Everyone!!

 

REAL NEAT AWARD, Thank you very much!

Yo! Sirius here!

I got nominated again!!

Woohoooo!!!

This will be my 3rd nomination to an award and also my 3rd nomination of A Real Neat Award. It seemed alot of people find my blog really neat. XD

Thank you, Umai Yomu! Check out his blog today!

Now for the questions…

Yomu sure gave out some interesting questions. I can’t wait to answer them. Ooohohoho!

EDIT: Oh my! I just got a notification. It seemed that Lina tagged me recently with the same nomination award. I’m so grateful!! Good thing I haven’t released this entry yet and was able to edit. Hahahah!

I’ll be answering  Yomu’s questions first, then Lina’s.

This is going to be fun. ^_^


neat.jpg

Here are the requirements:

  • Display the logo.
  • Thank the blogger that nominated you and share a link to their blog.
  • Answer the questions of the one who nominated you.
  • Nominated 7-10 bloggers.
  • Ask them 7 questions.

Umai Yomu’s Questions

01. If you had to choose one, what would your chuuni name be? (For example, I am known as Dark-Seal Mirage in the chuuni community, Dark-Seal for short).

Oh man, for a first question…this sure is hard. XD
A chuuni name, huh. Hhhmmmm…
If I had to choose one, that would be Lightning Cerulean Breaker. Cheesy, right? Heh.

The reason I chose this name is my facination of the power, electric kinesis. I find it really really powerful and quite useful, after all, you can literally find electricity everywhere.

I chose the word Cerulean because I always loved the color of the skies. It would be so cool to see a cerulean-colored electricity surrounding me. I would look badass.

Lastly, I chose the word Breaker is because….it’s sound cool?

That’s just me. XD

02. What anime made you laugh the most?

The anime that made me laugh the most would Sket Dance. I know that there are other awesome comedy animes out there, but the jokes in Sket Dance never fail to crack me up. In some ways, the anime is quite similar to Gintama, but I haven’t seen it yet so I’ll settle with Sket dance.

03. Who is your favourite anime character with a moustache?

A fav character with a moustache. Hhhmmmm….tricky..
I would choose Gildarts Clive of Fairy Tail. He’s really cool and really OP too. I’m a fan of Fairy Tail and I really like all the characters in the guild. I know he doesn’t seem to have thick moustache, atleast its still visible. That counts, right??? XD

GildartsClive.jpg

04. Has anime ever inspired you to try eating something new?

Yes, specifically Shokugeki no Souma. I had always wanted to try Japanese food, but ever since I watched that anime, damn, my desire to eat Japanese food heightened. Right now, I’m still unemployed. But once I would have some cash, I’ll definitely indulge myself with different dishes of Japanese cuisine.

05. If you could pick any two anime characters to battle it out, who would you choose? (Can be a battle of wits, strength, whatever type of battle you want).

Oh my!! So many possibilities!!! Wait, lemme think. Hhhhmmmm…

I think the battle I would really like would be Erza vs. Esdeath. Ooohohohohoh. BADASS WOMEN. Yeeee!!!

With Esdeath yielding the strongest Imperial Arms, she can also manipulate Ice and forze time. I would like to see her go head to head with Erza, as she an S-class Mage in the world of Fairy tail and continues to evolve as she is the strongest woman in the series. It would be definitely an exciting match. Oohohohoho!

badasserza.gif

06. What is an anime that has been on your to-watch list for a very long time?

Oh boy, that would be the classics Shoujo Kakumei Utena, Magic Knight Rayearth, and Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

But if I were to choose a modern anime, then that would be Monogatari series. I always wanted to check out the whole franchise, but I never got a chance to do it yet. And also, I’m a bit scared that I might not appreciate it like others do.

07. What is your favourite aspect of blogging?

My favorite aspect of blogging would be the fact that I can freely share my opinion, thoughts and feels about an anime. Before, I rarely share my thoughts about an anime cuz only few can relate. But now, I pretty much just share everything to everyone. 🙂


TinyUglyAnimal’s Lina’s Questions

1. What’s your stance on killing goblins?

If they harm the humans, of course, they need to be punished. That’s my stance.

2. What would be the best way to kill an evil goblin? (is there even good goblins?)

Hhhhmmm….I really do have any specific way to kill them. I would just use the necessary tools available with me and outsmart them.

Its hard to tell if there are good goblins out there, if all of us can communicate with each other and have some compromise, I think we can all achieve peace. 🙂

3. What would happen in a world where the goblins would be allowed to roam free?

It would be chaos. Goblins looked alot different from us humans, that would terror the humans. Immediately, humans would start killing them and vice versa. Chaos.

4. Would you like to live in a world where goblins ruled?

Nope. Totally not. but if ever I would live in that kind of world, I’d rather be a different being other than goblins and humans. That way I could be different from the norm, I always wanted that. Heh.

5. Who is your favorite goblin/-slayer? (yes, you can chose; be it the favorite goblin or the slayer that kills the goblin. And I am not necessarily talking about anime mind you.)

Well…its kinda hard not to answer the main protagonist of the anime, Goblin Slayer. I guess I could say he’s my favorite cuz I find him quite mysterious and he’s also really smart, though dense. He’s a really good character and he’s the reason why (along with Priestess) I am a fan of the series, Goblin Slayer.

6. What is you favorite anime/movie/tv-series with goblins in it?

To be honest, I can’t really think of anything other than Goblin Slayer. But if I were to choose something else, then it won’t be an anime or any anime-related. Lel.

Hhhhmmmm…I guess, I would choose the korean tv series that swept my country, Goblin. I chose that cuz first of all, the story was really interesting and the actor portraying the Goblin was really handsome and really knows how to deliver a character.

7. This was plenty of goblins I’d say; who’s your best boy/girl of all the best boys/girls in all genres. Please elaborate and show me pictures. We need pictures after all them nasty goblins.

Well, I enjoy watching the slime anime recently so I could say my best goblin boi would be:

Gobuta!!!

vlcsnap-2018-11-30-23h31m44s055.png

He brings me joy while I watch the slime anime and as a reader of the manga, he still has alot to “offer”. Lel

Most of the bloggers I nominate are either new here in wordpress, or doesn’t have much followers yet. I really liked their content and I want them to have more exposure. Do drop by there blog and give the love oohohohohoh

🙂


My Questions:

01. Would you continue to watch anime even when your old?

02. If you have a chance to live in an anime world, what world would that be?

03. I follow alot of anitubers on youtube. From anime reviews to satire analysis, I enjoy watching them. How about you? Who are you subscribe to?

04. Are there any comics/movies/tv series/manga/light novels/visual novels/games that you want to be adapted into an anime? If so, how many episodes? Seasons?

05. Do you consider Avatar – The Last Airbender, Avatar – The Legend of Korra, RWBY, and even, Castlevania as animes?

06. For you, who is the BEST supporting character in an anime?

07. If you have been give a chance to change the ending of an anime, what anime would that be? Why did you choose it? How will you change it?


Ooohohohohohoh!! Now this is going to be interesting.

To all who are nominated, feel free to do this tag. I really don’t mind if you guys do it or not, though, I am curious to know your answers on some of my questions. So I’m low key hoping you guys would do it. Heheheheh.

Thank you again, Yomu and Lina, for nominating and have this opportunity to answer your intriguing and challenging questions. 😀

Anyway, thanks for reading!!

Just me and my thoughts.

Yo!

Sirius here.

This is a weird untimely entry, I just want to share some of my thoughts I guess.


It’s been a week since I started blogging again. My abrupt comeback. I wasn’t supposed to comeback you know. My planned date was December, but screw it, I threw my plan away and made a comeback.

I was too anxious. Too anxious.

After taking the licensure exam, yes, I did feel like a burden was lifted but I also felt some anxiety. “What am I going to do now?”, that’s just one of the fleeting thoughts in my head as I went home from the hotel. I can still remember the last few stuff the head of my review center told us, reviewers, that the results would not be released exactly one week, but would be pushed due to some unforseen circumstances. Now, I have 2 weeks to wait for the results. It can’t helped, so accepting that info seemed easy. But, it’s not. What am I going to do in the next 2 weeks? 2 weeks is too long for me to do nothing, that’s why I abruptly came back on blogging.

In some ways, I came abit prepared. I already made few entries (entries from my draft) to post in the first week, at least. This doing of mine helped me to take my mind of from the upcoming exam results. To be honest, I’m not really confident about my results, but bruh, I’ll already gave everything to the heavens above. If they want to pass me then yay! If not, then so be it. As an anxious person, I do have some back up plans. Heh.

My first week is quite fruitful. I watch animes after animes, it’s like a dream come true. Being able to watch animes that are on my queue feels like an accomplishment. Yeeeee!! Lol. Also, my blog is coming back to life too. Consistent views are coming in, its making me happy. In some ways, it made me happy that I come back.

But, not everything is happiness though. Sigh.

What’s up with my laptop lately? You might have noticed that I post alot of quick and less efforted entries compared before, well, the reason to that is my MacBook Air. It’s abit laggy these days, I can’t edit my posts as much as I want to. I could only type properly my reviews using my two phones. I can’t even watch animes, concerts and other videos on my Mac cuz, yeah, it’s freakin’ laggy. Atleast I have my 2 phones for my watching. Though, right now, it seemed to have calmed down. I’ll take this opportunity to edit as much as I can.


Now, I want to share some updates about the blog.

I might change the looks of my blog again. I dunno when exactly I’m going to do that, but it is soon. I’m getting bored with it’s theme and looks so I am going to change it again.

For my not anime-related posts, I am going to start posting tomorrow. If you had read my comeback post, I said I would post an anime-related entry alongside with it, but due to time constraints, I don’t think I could do that. Lel. So I’ll just post them as is. Just like the anime posts, its going to be random but still at 5 pm, PH time.

Another update, ehem….I will be participating in doing the 12 DAYS OF ANIME. Yaaaaay! I always wanted to do this. I wasn’t able to do last year, but I came prepared for this year. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

I’ll try my best to make quality entries, though don’t expect too much from me. Heh.


Anyway, I think that’s everything I want to say and share right now.

Sorry for this random post. I just want to share I guess.

Thanks for reading!!

I’m Back!!!

Yay!!!

Hello, Everyone!! It’s been awhile.

 

As you can see from the title, I’m coming back from my short hiatus. Yeah! To be honest, I was planning on coming back around the beginning of December, but…I changed my mind. Ha!

During the break, I went through alot of stuff, good times and bad. I can’t really say much right now cuz everything is still hazy and not sure, but once the time is right, I will share the news.

Anyway, let’s move on.

The reason why I came back early cuz of my desire to blog. I watched alot of animes during the break and I was dying to share my thoughts about them. I also wanted to be in the discussion of the Fall 2018 Animes and it was killing me for not being able to grab alot of opportunities to milk the hype (tsk!). It wasn’t just the animes, during the break, I pretty much restricted myself in indulging to my hobbies (except for watching animes) to help focus more. It was hard and thank God, that decision didn’t back fire at me. At least now, I am really hungry for all of my hobbies. YES!

So yeah. After posting this entry, I will begin publishing stuff again. And compared to previous months, I will be posting it randomly, at any day, but specifically at 5 pm PH time. Why did I decide to do this instead of scheduling? Well, simple, I can’t think of proper schedule as of yet. LOL! So they’ll all be random. Ah! Also, my entries won’t be anime-related content, I’m also bringing back my old features, once I get a chance of writing them. But don’tcha worry, if ever I plan on releasing them, an anime-related entry would be released too.

Ooohohohohoho!

So, that’s it for now.

Thanks alot for reading!

Defective

I tried.

I tried.

I really did.

 

I thought I had moved on from this,

but its still there.

I tried to be more open to all of you,

but its still not enough.

The truth still remains,

I am broken.

I’ll forever be broken.

 

I’m abnormal.

I don’t think the way others do.

I’m always the deviant one.

I stand out too much its sickening.

 

I…

I just want to be me.

But I know that’s never gonna happen.

After all, in this world

I am the defective one.

Create-a-story Tag: Finally!!

Yo!! Sirius here.

Few weeks ago, I got tagged by TPAB senpai to do this Create-a-story challenge.

Ha.Ha.Ha. I lost my sanity. LOL.

You see, I love stories. Yes. Everyday, I would able to create alot of story plots in my mind. My problem is, I’m not really a good writer. Specifically, I feel like I’m not that good yet. Another thing is, my mind switches from one story to another, its kinda hard to make a proper story. At least this challenge is a short one.


Here are the rules:

cbdjksvsdkjvbdskjv

  1. You pick your first word, your setting and your story genre from the list below. As individuals, your brand of creativity is unique to yours, so we want to highlight that by letting you choose from a bunch of words and creating something beautiful out of it.
  2. The short story will have a limit of 1000 words. You do not need to write a story with 1000 words exactly. It could be 300, or 500 as long as it doesn’t surpass a thousand.
  3. YOU HAVE TWO WEEKS TO ANSWER THE TAG.
  4. You must tag three people to participate.
  5.  Don’t forget to link back to Keiko (this is her story) so she can collect all the stories. You can’t just link back to her wordpress, since she won’t be alerted of the pingback. You need to link back to a post or a page, because wordpress works like this.
  6.  Use the Create-A-Story picture in the post.
  7.  Copy and paste the rules in your tag post as well, so others can be clued in to the Create-A-Story rules.

The people I’ll be tagging will be:

FireRoad – Yes, my good friend. I have read alot of your random ‘stories/scenarios’ on FB, that’s why I’m really curious on to what kind of story you’ll make through this challenge.

LitaKino – I’m not really sure if you’re already tagged or something, I’ll tag you anyways. Recently, I haven’t read much entries here on WordPress, but I do keep up with your videos on Youtube. I look forward to your story. Heheh.

tetrax4berium – Thank you always for reading my entries. I wanna tag you this time. Can’t wait to read your story. 😀


Okay. For the story, it’s a Rain + School + Comedy/Slice of life (and possible Romance?? I dunno).

I’m not confident about it. I really do want to post something awesome and noteworthy, but due to time constraints and priorities, I wasn’t able to make something that satisfies me.

Anyways, enjoy!!

Rain, Rain, go away. Come again Another day.

It’s the first day of school and I want it to be special, memorable, and amazing. Why? Well, I’m now in college. Yay!! I’m an adult now. A new chapter of my life is starting, so it would be nice if my whole day would be filled with rainbows and happiness…

*rain pouring…hard*

Or not.

The first thing that greeted me the moment I woke up were lightning and thunder, dancing together. Ha! Great, epic first day indeed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was able to reach school without any problems.

As I walked to my class. I was imagining my own introduction. Should I blast them with my killer smile and have all the girls fawn over me? Or should I go with the shy route and let the girls think I’m really really cute? Such a nice thoughts.

But reality slaps us harder than we expect.

There was only one student, beside me, in the classroom. He saw me walking in the room and said, “Ah! Hey, classmate. There is no class. It’s the first day and the teachers are still in orientation.” “Oohh. Okay. Thanks for the info.”

As I was about to walk out of the room, I curiously asked him, “Hey, uuuhhh…classmate. Uuhh…curious question. Why are you still here? I mean there is no class.” He just cheekily smiled and answered, “I’m here for the aircon. We paid for this through miscellaneous. Gonna make the most out of it.” Ah, of course. Why didn’t I think of that.

“Oh, nice. Cool for you.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It wasn’t just my first class, it was everything. I had no class the whole damn day. I didn’t expect this at all.

Is it really normal in college to be this chill?

*rain pours*

Or is it really just chilly right now because of the weather?

Sigh. My first day of college didn’t go according to my plans. I was expecting to establish a fanbase and collect alot of friends. But, but, but…my ideal first day in college is destroyed. Sigh.

I roam around the campus, looking for some place to sit on or to relax a bit. But I wasn’t able to find one. Almost all the students are within the building where they can’t be wet, occupying all the seats.

Curse you, rain.

In the end, I continued to roam the campus. I was able discover alot of routes to explore in the future. As I was about to get tired of walking, I saw a bench without anyone sitting on it. I immediately went into it and sat like I own the damn thing. After hours of suffering, I deserved it you know.

*rain pours*

The rain continues to pour, and now I’m feeling really down. For a first day in college, this is so uneventful. What’s the point of all the effort I put into this first day of college. I almost couldn’t sleep last night cuz of excitement, and here I am, rotting my soul away to the depths of boringness. I just wish that atleast I would experience something good today. At least one.

“Oh heavens, above. Please grant me this tiny wish of mine. That there would be something, or anything interesting that would make my day better.”

A really loud rambling of thunder was heard after my prayer. It seems I just got my wish denied.

Damn.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I walked aimlessly to the entrance of the school, contemplating if either I ran to the nearest terminal or contact my parents and pick me up. Should I be a cool but stupid guy, or a spoiled but wise guy? While thinking, I felt someone tapping my shoulders. I looked at that person and it turns out the be my highschool crush, Jessica.

“Theo?” She asked. “Oh, Hey Jessica.” I answered.

She embraced me suddenly, which left me shocked, stunned, froze…every synonym of that word, dammit.

“I was abit worried that I might not find someone familiar in this school.” She let go of that epic embrace and smiled brightly to me. “Thank God, I met you, Theo.”

Indeed, thank you heavens above for this blessing.

I smiled back, “I didn’t expect you to be in this school, too. What course are you taking?”

“I’m taking up Industrial Engineering. You?”

“Mine is Computer Science. But wow, IE? Didn’t see that coming from you.”

“Ah, yeah.” She laughed, “I’m full of surprises I guess.”

*rain pours*

“Are you about to go home?” I asked.

“Yes, I’m meeting some of our classmates in HS.” She looked at her watch, “But with this rain, I don’t think I could go there in time.”

I looked at the skies and the rain, it’s quite clear it had no plans on stopping yet. Seeing my highschool crush in distress, I thought of some idea.

“Hey, Jess.”

“Yes?”

“I know this is a random suggestion, but do you want some coffee?” To be honest, I didn’t expect myself to have enough balls to ask her out. But I had the chance infront of me so why not grab it, right?

“I mean, if we stay here and wait for the rain to stop, it would take ages and it would be really boring. I know a good cafe in the east side of the campus, do you wanna join me?”

She was just looking at me silently. My heart was beating too fast, it feels like it would burst out in a second. Then she answered and smiled, “Why not?”

I just melt.

Yeeeeee.

That was…a mess. LOL. I’m not really a fan of it. I had alot of ideas in my head, but I can’t put words to them. This short story, on the other hand, is pure fiction with a hints of realistic settings. The setting is quite realistic, after all, I got my inspirations from my own experience during my university days. I also got my inspirations through the passive-aggressive rain yesterday. It was really weird.

Anyway, I hope you like guys like this one. It’s not really special, but I do appreciate some feedback. Hehheheheh.

That is all.

Thanks for reading!!!
