God is Good (But We Need Cash)

I said in my previous post, that if nothing follows that post, that means that I have been kicked out of law school.

Well, this is the post that follows that post, so logically -- you do the math.

Anyway, I'm still in Malcolm Hall, and I hope I don't screw it up this time.

Just one of the more humorous anecdotes from one of my more interesting professors this semester, the great yet intimidating Rowena V. Guanzon, former mayor of Cadiz (Ca-dith, mind the "th" sound, thank you very much).

Typical to most first days of class, we were asked to stand up and introduce ourselves. Since this class was Local Government, we had to state our name and the baranggay we lived in.

STUDENT: I am Sophia San Luis, from Baranggay Industrial Valley Complex, Marikina City.

RVG: You live in a baranggay called "Industrial Valley Complex?"

STUDENT: Yes, ma'am.

RVG: Who lives there? Robots?

Apparently the legal profession can become one big stand-up comedy act.

Is This the End?

Yesterday was enrollment time again. I just found out that I might get kicked out of law school. For good.

You cannot imagine how this feels. My mind keeps coming up with "what if" scenarios which, I was told, is an unhealthy way of attracting negative energy. Just think positive. Yeah right. I'd like to see you try.

So to everyone who enjoyed reading my Law School Chronicles (yes, some people actually stalk this blog hehe), I thank you. But this might be my last post here. If nothing follows this post, then you will know that I have been kicked out of UP Law.

I pray to the Lord God Almighty*, to Jesus Christ, and to the departed soul of my maternal grandmother, who always granted my prayers before. Please...let me graduate from UP Law, and let me pass the bar, and I promise to serve my country and alleviate poverty. It can be done. I already know how. But first I need to graduate. So please don't let me get kicked out. I could have sold my soul to the devil, but I chose the good side.

I love you God. Amen.

*When I say "God", I mean the almighty force slash supreme being common to all religions except Aethism. And Scientology. I don't even know if Scientology has a concept of a supreme being.
