It’s been a month since the first day of school and the most frightening day of my life, I didn’t even know what to do, I feel like I’m fainting from standing on the front of my new school. Whispering to myself like, “fudge, I don’t wanna go in”, “sht, you can do this reia, believe yourself you can”. Thousands of sinful words came on my mind and mouth. And I really can’t eat that time. I think it’s because i’m super duper freaking mega ultra nervous that time and I don’t know how to make friends. It’s because I spent my 6 years on my old school, and it’s really a big change for me. You know, I came from a city and transferring on a province. Though they’re the same from people in the city, it’s still different. You may ask why.. it’s because they have culture that a “city person” didn’t know. Filipinos have that term, “taong bundok” on someone that didn’t know a simple thing. And I call myself as “taong siyudad” because i don’t know their culture. hahahahahhaha lol.
My month being a luxian is really a big change for me though. My school’s name is “Fiat Lux Academe” (pronounced as fi-yat luks a-ka-dim). They have the things that my old school didn’t have and they didn’t have the things that my old school have.
Their clubs and organizations are completely different – in a good way though. They have FLARE (Dance), FLAMES (Sing), FLAMBEAU (Journalism/School Paper), FLAGS (Theater), Varsities (Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball etc.), and Interest clubs such as Artists’ Guild, Geek club, FLA Shots, Guitarists’ Guild, Cyclists’ Society, and something about cosplay. They also have their club fair, e.nig.ma, fiathletics (Intrams) and etc etc. And they really have great facilities – except the comfort room though. HAHAHAHA.
During morning assembly, we have to recite the prayer, academe’s philosophy, mission statement, and the core values – well, except for monday. During mondays, we’re having our flag ceremony where FLAMES (Fiat Lux Academe’s Music Enthusiasts Society) is on the stage to sing the national anthem, the Dasmarinas Hymn, and our school’s hymn. We also recite Panatang Makabayan and Panunumpa sa Watawat ng Pilipinas.
After the assembly, we are supposed to go to our designated classroom and to our designated seats. Our schedule are 2 hrs per subject. It’s better than I thought. Haha! And our canteen is not your typical canteen, there are many gazebos and it’s the place we eat our food. The fresh air.. ahhhh.
I must say, I’m 83% adjusting as of now. Lol. Well, I’m trying to make friends and luckily, I have made many friends and I hope nothing won’t change. I hope everything will be perfectly normal in the coming days, weeks, and months. Just keep in touch. Haha!
I hope I will enjoy my stay there. 🙂
