A lot of times we tend to busy ourselves with the mundane things, not realizing that we are all in a position to make a change. This man did just that. His words are well-quoted primarily because he lived out a life to inspire others. I always envy those people whose life passion is to shape his society. How I wish that I could discover my own advocacy that will concern not only myself, and rally for it with my sweat, tears, and if necessary, even with blood.
Right after graduation, everyone in the block got busy right away with starting to review for the bar exams. Given that everyone’s schedule was already occupied, we’ve decided to postpone the block’s out-of-town trip to post bar. There are more reasons to celebrate this time. Aside from our liberation from the four walls of Malcolm Hall, we are officially free from the shackles of the biggest exams of our lives. And so as we wait for the exam results and before everyone becomes bugged down again with real work, we decided to troop to Club Balai Isabel.
After sunset, we stayed at our villa and had a feast for dinner. What followed next was the game of life, some drinking games, and horror stories. Yes, pretty much a slumber party of some sorts. Haha.
Since the check-out time the following day was quite early, we took advantage of each other’s company and decided to make a sidetrip to Tagaytay. We went there to visit the newly-installed theme park, Sky Ranch. We also dropped by to take a look at the newly-opened branch of Starbucks Tagaytay.
I waited for this trip and I’m just so glad that it pushed through.
Law school may have ended but the memories forged with these people will forever remain. We are the nerdiest block, the most obsessive-compulsive, and always the most outnumbered when it comes to attendance in school parties. Others do not really understand our quirks, but without it, we probably might not have gotten out of law school alive. Looking forward to our Christmas parties, reunions, and more out-of-town trips, Block B!
