Just Another Weekend

I forgot to tell you guys that I was offered to go to Baguio this weekend, to cover for the MADC event (Microcontroller Applications Design Competition) and to accompany Sir Mong, currently the MOBOT head. This may be part of my work as the IEEE PS webmaster, since my main task deals with web content. So, am I blogging in Baguio now? Nope.

It was sir Richard who asked me if I am free to go to Baguio this Saturday. First, I thought that the faculty and/or sir Richard's friends would have a Baguio getaway and they wanted me to be their tour guide. I really didn't like the idea of being thrown into the company of my 'superiors' (faculty) because I don't like to feel 'out of place'. In the end, I had just said no; I have an exam next week. Well, when I asked, "Sir bakit, tour guide"? Sir Richard answered, "Hindi, sa IEEE".

Perhaps most of you would say, "saaaayaaaaang!". Well, yeah, if it would be all expenses paid, it is indeed a loss of opportunity. Still, I really have reasons of not coming over for the weekend. This month, we are celebrating the 77th anniversary Beta Epsilon. Part of our activities are the Stag party and the Frat Ball which was scheduled friday and saturday. I planned to attend at least one since I still have work to do (IEEE website) and I DO really have an exam on monday (Jap 13). Not to mention that I have to submit a reaction paper for my graduate subject (UC-Berkeley CS252) and prepare for our Wednesday thesis progress report. So you see, I was not lying that I am busy.

If only the regional event was to be conducted somewhere south via airplane; I would readily agree to go. It's to explore new places that I want, not to have a field trip back to my hometown. Of course, there are still regrets that I could have gone home like a hero. Well, it's the price I am paying for now. Right now, I'm just stucked in this dormitory room doing senseless things such as blogging.
