Towards the end of my 3 year course in City University London, suddenly there were pink & green couches appearing at one part of our university building. And then what to us was funnier was this fake sheep on fake grass just down the steps from the pink & green couches. We weren't sure what they (university management) were trying to show here. Maybe they were trying to be funny. Maybe they were trying to make it a more comfortable place to 'chill'. To us, it was just another thing to laugh about.
University was an interesting 3 years of my life. I met a lot of people from different walks of life. Classmates born in one country but the parents' origin from another. I was already different in that aspect. Born in the Philippines to Filipino parents, and proud of it. But I would have to say parts of university life was awkward too. To be honest, I was more like myself outside of uni, then I was at uni. I wouldn't stay around for long. I went to class and went home or to the embassy after, unlike in high school. It just didn't feel quite right.
The best thing of it all was meeting one of my best friends in uni. If I keep any memory from those 3 years, it would be my friendship with her. Even though we're in different countries now, and continents and timezones too, I'm thankful that there's facebook, twitter, whatsapp and bbm for us to keep in touch. Oh and skype too, but timezone issues go into play here.
So since today is Wednesday, it's time for sushi and cheesecake. Just like the we would use to do.
