Crying over spilled milk

It was that epic afternoon of March 17, 2010. I was (badly) influenced by Aries and Lawi to cut classes, go to the mall and watch a movie. I was in a vulnerable state then, having lost the elections for the position I was aspiring for ever since I was an applicant. The only consolation I had in my mind then was my love life. Since we both lost that election, at least we can have more time together for the next academic year, which apparently didn't happen. Then there came that epic moment, the source of laughter of some of my friends, that epic video.

To those who haven't figured out why I was crying over spilled milk (as the caption of the video stated), here is how I remember it.

While we were waiting for the movie, Remember Me to start, we opted to eat our lunch at Jollibee at the Annex of SM North EDSA. After eating, Aries got my phone, then he told me that he texted Gboi some profane words. I was vulnerable, thinking that my love life was the only thing that was in place then, I started crying, then there went the video. haha.

I won't forget that day for that was the afternoon they have convinced me to vie for VC for EdRes for the Sanlahi. A fall back for some but an opportunity for me. The following week, I ran against abstain and won without really knowing the responsibility I am getting into.

I remembered that night of the turn over with the previous Sec when we had some drinks then went Rockband while we were a little bit tipsy. Haha. Then upon arriving to my friend's house, I cried all night because of someone then I had allergies the following day. After my mind was back in place, I realized that this is it. That what I ran for is real.

I started almost from scratch. It's a good thing that my co-Sec were active for the past Sanlahi years and they guided me towards knowing and eventually loving the work that I have.

I was a complete stranger to everyone and to the post I am handling. But through time, I learned to love and enjoy what I am doing and I believe that I have done a really great job.

It's about time I have to bid goodbye. I haven't trained anybody. I do not know who will succeed me. But what I know is I've done my job well and it's time to turn over this great opportunity and post to someone who'll also eventually love it.

And to those 6 people I've worked with for the whole year, you know that I'll miss you. I've learned a lot from you and our experiences. We weren't that close as the previous secretariat members were, but I believe we were able to create a bond among ourselves. A bond that we will always remember when we reminisce our college life. :)
