A Dose of Normality

T’was university years when I met him. I did not notice him on the first day as I barely notice anyone (because I am not that good remembering faces and names).

Just a normal day.

It’s on my second day that I became aware of his presence. He was not wearing glasses then; and one thing I remember about him is his backpack. Yeah, I wonder what’s inside this guy’s bag. I even asked myself what kind of student would bring so many things on his second day of school?

The next day, I saw him wearing glasses. Just the normal guy~ average in intelligence with squirts of genius during certain times. He would shock you that he knew what you are thinking. He calls that instincts, I call it luck. He is one of the weird-type students walking the catwalk university munching some words, talking to someone. But he is also one of the jerks that would enter your classroom taking some chairs with him outside and sit down during the changing of classes.

He is a regular 2K3 student with a few slip-ups along the way. Specifically, 2K3-015887-7 student (now, this would give you an idea what university he came from).

He enjoys french fries talk. If you wanna know his life’s story, go and buy him french fries. He would talk until the fries is gone. It’s his weakness, BTW.

His mind is more of a night sky: deep and blank. And his student life is more of a meteor shower: rushing of deadlines and cramming of projects. But this guy’s unbelievable. He would pull off a thesis skeleton that he made overnight.

But he is not special. He would receive failing scores in quizzes. Sometimes, he would perfect the exams. He sometimes study. He sometimes not.

He loves rooftops. He quit being a writer for the school’s yearbook publication. He doesn’t care a thing. And he doesn’t know why.

That’s it. He is Akso.

And this is Chello. Signing off!

  5. Oh my! Bakit mo ni-reveal ang student number mo? I always tell my classmates na kapag sinasabi nila ung student number nila sa iba, it could be dangerous. I mean, they can use that against you. It’s like a wizards’ secret spell, a chef’s secret recipe, a politician’s secret agenda. Joke lang. haha.

    Naabutan pa pala kita! haha.

    1. Awts, batch 2k7 ako grad. Kailangan kabisado natin yung stud id number natin kase yan ang identity natin pag nasa university tayo. yan na ang kaluluwa natin. pag sumulat sa class cards, pag nanghiram ng book sa library. pag walang ID at tinanong ng guard. lahat lahat yata may kinalaman sa student ID number natin! Ayun, uulitin ko ulit yung student number ko.

      1. Hindi. 7 din. Yung last digit ba yung sinasabi mo? sabi naman nung ka-department ko dati, middle name daw yan. E di naman ata kasi “D” ang middle initial ko. haha.

        Isa pa, ang student number ay kailangang sauluhin kapag papasok sa skul ng gabi kapag may concert sa gym. Remember? Haha.

        1. Ganon nga yung napansin namin nung third year na kami, ang last digit ay hindi na yung middle name. sa amin ganun, kaya 7 letters din yung middle name ko!

          at ang concert, totoo! kailangan kabisado mo. as if na mache check nila isa isa yun. imbento na lang! awts.

          1. I did that once. Ginamit ko yung sa kapatid ko. Then the stupid guard took the regi. Tinanong sakin kung ano student number. Syempre di ko nasaulo kaya nag-imbento ako. Haha. nakatingin na sya sa regi nun nung nag-imbento ako ng student number. Tapos sabi nya, “ah sige”. tapos pinapasok ako. e iba yung sinabi kong student number. wahahahahahaha!

            Here’s the trick. Try to look confident sa pagsasabi ng student number. dun lang naman sila tumitingin e. sa facial expression. haha.

    2. yung mga estudyante na di nakakabisado ang kanilang student id number ay ang mga pangkaraniwang estudyante na nawawala rin sa ating unibersidad.

  7. Dear Ax,
    I have some questions for you to answer:

    1)Who is Chello?
    2)Why did the guy not wear his glasses on the second day?
    3)Why did he wear it again on the third?
    4)Why does he likes French Fries? Why not Burger?
    5) If i go up our rooftop now with salted French Fies in tow, shall I see him there?

    1. 1. Chello is your normal dose of sassy girl.
      2. He wanted to see the world in blurred vision.
      3. He realized he needs a good sight every time he crosses the train’s rail.
      4. Just like how hippo likes mud and not the ocean.
      5. No, because the moon is different on your rooftop than how he sees the moon on his’.
