UP Fair 2006 Week (Feb 13-18)

What happened on the fair during this week? I really don't know. I'll never experience UP Fair as an undergrad as I expect to graduate next semester. Who cares about being that 'pathetic'. There are already tons of experiences I get from UP, I don't care to lose some of the most common.

I guess the closest experience I got related to UP Fair was when I was one of those who acted as bidders for hosting a night. This was for last year's fair. Ironically, we backed out considering we were the highest bidder for monday to thursday nights; it was because we were only interested on the friday. So there, just pure business.

Since First year, my reason for not attending a fair night was due to acads. Just one exam scheduled within that week would spoil my mood for attending the fair. Actually, I really had the chance of going to this year's fair with my EEE batchmates. I could blame my laziness and apathetic mood for not catching up with them, considering that I just stuck up my ass at my dormroom. I even thought that the Friday night's line up would be better because of the Eraserfest mania (in lieu of the Electromagnetic Jam album artists). If only I had known that Danes would be one big backstage pass, I'd definitely be pumped up to go. I've heard that he has connections with the production staff or whoever. For those who went with him, they were treated with a rare opportunity of having their up-close pics with the band stars.

-----something not related to UP Fair----
Despite not being able to attend UP Fair, Gordon and I kind of 'gatecrashed' into Lew's birthday bash. Everyone is 'invited'; though, it turns out that only about 4 of us are of batch 01's. Expectedly, jokes regarding UP Circuit's batch factions came around wherein accusing fingers are pointed at our direction as 'spies'. Of course, I just take it lightly, Lew is a great host anyway.

In factions like this, believe me, I had experienced a much worse and complicated scenario. The common thing I had observed with me was that I was able to be involved with the opposite sides of the coin. I am not being a bootlicker, one who changes side depending on who is in the advantage. For this case it is not a battle between good and evil, there is only a conflict in ideas; on how to handle the organization. Being in the best of both worlds, I share the approval and disappointment over each other. The thing is, both sides has a strong and weak point. Ideally, there should be a unifying factor (Im not saying that would be me!) in order it to be a whole organization again.

My relationship with the 01's are mainly rooted from the bond between my blockmates. A year ahead among 02's are not really that far considering that we are all adults now. Considering that most of the 'concerned' 01's are to be graduating this sem, I'd be expecting the 02's to be taking their much awaited lead from that point. There would be nothing to worry about, since 'they' had already been tried and tested. All we have to do is just swallow our pride.
