Together we can break any wall that divides us


I purposefully didn't wear black for fear of being mistaken for a Jumping Jologs—a term to denote teenage, Gothic-looking kids who throw mineral water bottles in mid-air during concerts. (Are they aware of this label?)

Last night was to be the second time I was going to the UP Fair, a week-long event in the University featuring local bands and food booths. A glorified peria with a twang of UP-ness.

My intention was not to stay long, of course. My friends know it's not my thing. Rock music disorients me, and I find huge crowds overwhelming.

But, this was to be my last year in UP Diliman, and I didn't want to miss out on the experience.

While we were busy roaming around, suddenly there was a problem with crowd control. Those who weren't allowed entry, at one time, began throwing rocks, rocking the make-shift fence, and ended up destroying a portion of it. This caused quite a commotion that GMA News did a live reporting on the scene.

But the tension died down, I had the first-hand experience I was after, and I longed for my room.

aww... kawawa ka naman. it's your first time (and last chance as a stud) and this is what you have experienced? what we need to do is to have an open season for these orcs. you know, probably one day in the week-long UP fair that we will dedicate for these orcs. pag andun na sila, we can use rubber bullets and target as many orcs as possible.

From what I gather, these kids had tickets. Di ata nacontrol nang mabuti ang tickets na pinalabas. But there's no way of confirming that. Either way, more than dismay, I feel sorry for these kids. They need guidance.

So feeling mo, si Legolas ka, ganun? Hahaha
