Time check: 6:42 pm, at Mc Donald’ s waiting for my sister. She’s coming from work and here I am killing time until she arrives. This has been a long and busy day for me. Got up at 7:30 am. I don’t have work today since it’s a Saturday, I do have an interview though for my MBA application in DLSU. I was a bit nervous this morning, answering potential questions in my mind. I got there 9:30 and thought I arrived early but there are still several people who came in earlier. It was first come,first served basis so I decided to have an early lunch since it will be awhile before my name will be called. 30 minutes later, almost everyone’s gone, good thing I returned just in time for my turn. The interview was fine, I was nervous but kept my composure (or so I thought). Anyway, the interviewer was very cool though he is inquisitive. The questions are not easy nor hard. It’s like those beauty pageant questions where you have to defend you answer and convince everyone you know what you are talking about. It was probably 10 minutes long, I think I did well. I was asked to take dictation using stenography (he knows steno and wanted to test me if still remember). Turned out I still remember but my handwriting is not so neat, I think I passed that test. I was also asked who were my professors back in college and I was so ashamed of myself, I only remembered two but when the interview was over I suddenly remembered most of them. How could I forget Mr. Dumlao?or was he a Dr.? That I am not so sure. He was my favorite professor back then.
After the interview, I was still high with excitement and I just wanted to sit down for a while. Went to the chapel and say a little prayer. It was only 12 noon and I decided to just go to my dentist if she can squeeze me in her schedule, I texted her and lucky me she can accommodate me at 4pm. While killing time in the mall, I saw a friend, we talked for a while and then I went to the bank. 30 minutes later I am done and I again saw the said friend at the bank.
I received a text from my dentist saying that I can come to the clinic a bit earlier. I had one of molars extracted, the dentist had a hard time pulling it and I can feel her giving it all her strength. And after that I was ready to leave the clinic but suddenly feel weak. I stayed there for a few more minutes to rest.
And here I am trying to eat but all I can manage is gobble up ice cubes after ice cubes:-)
