It’s been nearly three months since I saw my friends and classmates from UFL. So I had been looking forward to the gathering which was held yesterday, on Kayin New Year Day. I’ve also created a group in Facebook for our class to stay in touch with each other.
I am not a early bird and I always sleep late in the mornings. So as usual, I was late when I left home. I decided to take a taxi when I couldn’t get on the bus and I was afraid that I would arrive late. When will I ever learn? As expected in most meetings I’ve attended, I was the first to arrive. Some of my classmates arrived around the appointed time, but aside from Ma SZO & SWM, none of my friends showed up. I know that KYW couldn’t come and she had called me, but I assumed that other friends would have come. I even burned a DVD for a friend since she likes Jonas Brothers and there was a performance that she might like. Also, I wanted to talk to another friend to borrow an English Speaking book from her.
All together, 12 people came to the meeting. Initially, I was hoping that we would go somewhere else like maybe Kandawgyi Park and chat with each other. We did get to chat, but it was mostly about school and the upcoming dinner that we are planning. We also talked about convocation. I wasn’t planning to attend it, but now I have to in order to get my diploma. I need it to apply for master degree and I don’t want to wait another year to receive it. Yeah, it sucks. I made the mistake for applying for not attending when I applied to get my diploma for ELTM. The clerk only told me about the waiting list after I had applied for it. Darn it, now I have to wait until the end of 2011 to get my diploma.
