Long weekend? What long weekend?

So here’s the thing. The President declared August 20 (Eid-al-Fitr) and 21 (Ninoy Aquino Day) as non-working holidays, so that means students will get to rest for two days and everyone will resume classes on Wednesday.

Everyone, except us.

I don’t know the exact details, but I heard that our school paid a penalty of some sort for us to be able to hold classes on these days. It is understandable, though. You may have heard from the news of heavy rains and floods here in the Philippines two weeks ago; and as a result, our classes were suspended for the whole week. And since my school adopts the trimestral system, we were greatly affected during those suspensions. Our term was supposed to end this month but we had to extend and have make-up classes in order to catch up with our lessons. So there. Our school is the only school to have classes today and tomorrow.

I was actually fine with the whole make-up classes thing because I KNOW that we need it. But now, I can’t help but envy the other students who don’t have classes because I’m not feeling very well. When I was in school awhile ago, I almost fainted while walking in the hallway because I felt really dizzy and I couldn’t see where I was going. It was also hard to breathe. Even I don’t understand my situation. Maybe I should pay my cardiologist a visit or I should just rest here at home for as long as I want. But how will I do that if I have quizzes and presentations tomorrow in almost all of my subjects? As of now, I’m supposed to be resting but here I am, still working on my requirements.

Sheesh. I could really use that long weekend right now.

  1. Ohh, so that’s why DLSU have classes during the long weekend. Lots of DLSU students on twitter complained about it so. Get well soon 🙂

  2. Oh, I didn’t know that a school have to pay penalty for having classes or work on a holiday. Well, it’s the first time I’ve heard classes on holidays anyway. I can’t really blame them because trimestral system’s schedule is tight and fast-phased. I hope you get to rest though. Get well soon! 😀

  3. Oh I see! I shall try it tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks for telling me!

    OMG. I hope you will get well soon. Do rest more even though you need to catch up on your lessons. Health is definitely. more important than studies.

  4. Hello. It sure is hard to juggle things here and there. Your blogposts make me miss my life as a college student.
    It’s quite challenging to study with health issues. What happened to you is alarming. Continue giving your best and surely, you’ll overcome the challenges of being a student.
