There was no premonition but I knew it was coming. Indeed, my professor asked me few questions why I missed four sessions. She even stressed out her strict compliance to the rule: Make a 10-hour absence for the entire semester and you’ll get an FDA. Nevertheless, I was able to keep my composure and was saved by white lies. I was the new face so she was still in the process of weighing down my capabilities and what’s not, so she could set her expectations.
She probably thought I was really interested to her class for she reacts according to my facial expressions. I got really, really conscious after noticing that. The psychic knew it when I got lost in the deliberations that she would gladly repeat herself to make things clear when no one really asked her to do so. Like a rain pouring after a lengthy drought, I knew it was something to celebrate. I even doubled the good impression after I participated in the recitation.
I was joined by a friend for lunch after the class. We went ahead to watch Michael Bay’s Transformers in SM Manila. The movie’s plot revolves around a war between two robotic clans (the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons), with planet Earth as their battleground leaving the fate of mankind in the balance. I suck in giving out movie reviews so I really have nothing to say, except that the overall visual effects and animation is quite an eyeful. I also like how it was able to effectively attach the political dealings of the United States of America, particularly on matters concerning international security.
