The original time for the UP LAE was 7:30am so I wasn’t bothered because Ate Katy’s concert is at 8:00pm. But when I finally got the test permit last Monday (the deadline for the application with penalty), the time was moved to 1:00pm.
And then I remembered UPCAT and how much time we spent answering the questions so I started to panic that up to this morning, I was having this dilemma whether or not to skip the LAE since I already missed Ate Katy’s concert last time. I’m sure it’ll last up to 6pm and Diliman to Mall of Asia (MOA) is not that near, considering the traffic that concert will surely make.
Then I read friends’ posts on FB wishing the takers of the UP LAE goodluck and I realized I shouldn’t even have a hard time choosing about this – lame :p
So off I went to UP Diliman early (12 noon) and from the long line I saw at the Bocobo Hall’s entrance, I know I really am in UP.
So there was these long lines per room assigned. Take note, three loooong lines just for our testing room alone (Room 400). And we were the last to enter.
My freshman days and memories were somehow relived – seeing these new faces, unsure and scared but more relaxed this time. Until pfffttt … I saw one familiar face from UPLB, a course-mate, Vic, and when I started to look around, I started seeing one familiar face after the other – Kat and the other girl whose boyfriend then is brods (fraternity) with my ex. Haha, small world, nah, we’re in UP, I shouldv’e expected that.
So, how did it go?
We finished almost 6pm. Period. Imagine that. And the questions … wah, the reading comprehensions and the logic and the analysis part I can take, but the computations? Nosebleed. So yeah, I have some oblongs left blank just when I thought I got so good at math and all its computations because I’m in Sales now, hello. But looks like I need more data analysis and more alone-time with data and numbers.
I can’t wait to see the result – for now I’ll just wait and hope for the best. Atty. Rikki – soon. Yay!
