It could be the atmosphere. Or the people. Or just plain laziness. I just don't seem to want to go home. It doesn't feels right when I'm on a Marisol-Pampang jeep with the sun still in the sky. Even on a Wednesday, I still find a reason to go there though we don't have classes. I just... like it. No, love it.

You know how they say the school's our second home? That's exactly what I feel when I'm there. Despite the stress and frustration studies can cause, being in school with friends takes the edge off. Some people may agree with me that they like going to school but they dread schoolwork. Sleeping, eating, playing, texting, goofing around... things students look forward to as they enter the classroom. It's also a great place to ask for advice from people we've come to know and accept as our friends.

Theoretically, wanting to stay in school or someplace else indicates problems at home. That's something I wouldn't want to admit. I may be delinquent at least but I wouldn't trade home for anything.

I often tell my classmates that I stay for reconnaissance purposes or for the Angelus. The first one is never true (though generally staying after hours means higher probability of spotting targets); the second is rarely true. I wouldn't regard myself as someone who takes those kinds of things seriously; I'm not at that level yet.

I stay until it's dark because that's always been kind of my ideal set-up, even in high school. It's just... different. Quieter, darker, and a great place to mull things over. A bit of self-reflection is always good, and I find that the campus at night is awesome for those emo moments. Not that I'm emo. It's normal... Right?

Try it sometime. Whether your campus is larger than Vatican City or smaller than SM, you'll see it differently if you stay just a wee bit longer.


What happened today:
>Loads of classic "Ano nga ba?" moments in Chem Lab today. :))
>We got told off by Engr. Sanchez while we were waiting for our next class in the room she was in. Why? We were trying to see if people on the ground floor would look up at us in the 5th floor if we called them "Pogi" or "Cute". Tsk tsk. Strike one. (Sorry Ma'am and BS PT 2-A!)
>Everyone's still wondering what would be a good attention-getter or intro speech. Thank God for my previous obsession with stalking.

    I don't think it's the school itself... Posibleng dahil super lapit nalang niya.XD Joke. Iba pa rin yung 'previous school'. :))
