Aside

The semester just ended. People are leaving the dormitories, heading home. Others are already out there, enjoying every bit of the time that they have before facing another sem. Most of them have their breaks planned out perfectly– prepared their lists of books to read, movies to watch, parties to attend to, etc.

Me? Still in my room in the dormitory, lying flat on my stomach, no plan to sleep in the next few hours. I was too busy looking forward for the break that I forgot to plan any activity for the break itself.

Well, I am really very glad that the sem is over. You know, me time plus family time. But then, there is something that I came to realize. One sem is over while another one is going to come in a few weeks. Things are going to change, AGAIN. And then we’ll have to see new professors and get to know new teaching styles, meet new classmates, and adapt to classrooms new to us. I mean, aren’t those just too much?

Well, yeah, I get that changes are inevitable. But then, it is not always easy to keep up with the things in life especially if the world is turning way too fast and then all you can do is watch and get confused. Okay, that’s a bit too much for a semester, but I’m actually ┬átalking about things in general.

Changes are not easy to accept, that’s why deaths, breakups, moving out/in, leaving and being left behind are not easy to deal with. And no matter how we keep on saying that “change is the only constant thing in this world,” there will always be times when we ask the world “why things can’t just stay the same.”

Aaaand, yes I’m still trying to take in the fact that I won’t have to stay up late for academic purposes for weeks. Naaah, kidding. Happy sem break everyone!
