Did you feel the rush to dress yourself, fail to eat, sacrifice taking bath, etc?
Did you experience waking up from bed few minutes before the time of your class? Or worst, few minutes behind schedule for your class plus not counting the time you have to travel from to reach your school but still motivated not to miss the class because you believe that it is better to be late than absent. Well that is too obedient to be for an outstanding school boy like me.
I am not “A” tardy student, oversleeping is just my problem. Just like this morning, I rushed to school for the reason that I pulled out myself from bed so early that I would miss the class. I haven’t taken my bath and eaten breakfast yet just to be there before dismissal. Yes, I always want to be present though marked sometimes as late.
When I reached our lecture room, I don’t know what and how to feel the situation, should I be happy or sad? Yes, I was late as always in this 10am class; but today is not the same as the other meetings. Today, I really put forth effort and sacrificed just to make it in class and to convince myself that being late is better than not attending classes.
Discernment in disappointment takes place. Should I be happy because I made it to class room before dismissal after all the sweat? Should I be sad because after all the energy used to race with time results to hearing the announcement that we don’t have the class today?
Since I am optimistic, I chose to be happy but not until I have checked the 16 unread text messages in my mobile phone which I never scanned since I got up in bed because I was in hurry to make it in school. I scanned through the text messages I received and there were 4 text messages (which I received earlier before I woke up) from two of my graduate classmates informing me that we don’t have class today. I laughed myself to my being foolhardly. Yeah, I realized that sometimes it is cool and better to be absent than to be late and kill yourself to be in school.
