Yesterday was one of the most unusual experiences that I've ever had in my life..
It was 10:20 in the morning, on a rainy Saturday morning.. we were in the middle of our third quiz for our Inorganic Chemistry subject, when a general chemistry student of Ma'am Miranda (Our professor for Inorg) came in and inquired about the exam he was supposed to take, because classes were already suspended during this time.
Normally, Mapuans would ask for confirmation first about things like these because a common trait that most Mapuans would have is the "Don't waste my time" mentality. This form of mentality is usually present in every Mapuan because he prefers to be as relaxed as possible even if it is already the last week of classes, and the final exams are coming up..
After 10 minutes of staring at my quiz booklet, and realized that there was nothing else I could write, I decided to submit my paper, and be done with the exam. After talking with my other classmates who submitted after me, I realized some of my answers could be wrong..
12nn came, and it was raining as hard as hell.. which meant it would take a while before we could get a ride home, so we decided to play DOTA while waiting for the rain to stop. Unaware of what awaited us, just as we were in front of the signage of the school's name, there was a flood infront of Mapua, so we decided to go back into the campus..
While outside the campus, with all the umbrellas surrouding me, the sleeves of my shirt got very wet, and when I visited the lab assistant's office, they told me to dry my shirt and wear a different one so that I wouldn't catch a cold.. so I did just that, and I placed my wet shirt infront of the electric fan for faster drying. which caused a spark inside the office because the wall of the office was leaking, and the exposed portion of the motor began to shoot colors..
And so the rain continued, and none of the students dared to face the rain, and parents started texting their children to stay in school because of floods happening everywhere. The school then allowed us to stay for the night, and even provided us dinner and breakfast for free.. XD
During the length of the night, we watched movies, played cards, as well as plants vs. zombies. The fun part of the movie watching was that we were watching the movie in full screen since the S.A.'s let us use the LCD projector.. XD
The most unusual thing about the experience as a refugee was that I and my co-students of the Che-Chm department had a world of our own inside Mapua. While most of Mapua was in the gym or AV rooms, I and my batchmates were staying in the Chemistry Laboratory Stockrooms. While everybody was watching the news, and waiting for the rain to end, we were up at the 4th floor enjoying ourselves to everything we could do..
Going home was the best part of being a refugee because we saw a lot of things that made us wonder just how strong the rain was last night. Especially the Quiapo area.. @_@
If we had a chance to take a picture of said area, I would have posted it here. But for now this is what you get. I have videos of what we saw before we rode the LRT 2, so I hope you wait for it.
