I’m not too surprised that the queue we have to work on for today is higher than the one we had yesterday. Still, it’ll put a dent in my plans to use my lunch break to cram, erm, study the readings I have for tomorrow’s classes. Tsk, will have to mow through the records I have to do for the day.
I have to say though… Holy heck, it took me forever to go through (Resil) Mojares’ notes on the Origins and Rise of the Filipino Novel. One lunch break literally not enough for that one, plus given the clampdown on anything even resembling paper at the work area in preparation for the audit next week, I wasn’t even able to start on the other papers I needed to read.
I find it deliciously ironic that one of them is by my other professor, Isagani Cruz. Yikes.
Anyway, ugh… Cram, cram, cram. Better get some energy drinks to keep me going by the time it hits 9PM. Uhm, what was it again? Almario, then Tiongson. Right, right.
By Haruhi! While the other papers, while long, were actually bearable in the info that they gave, Almario’s Balagtasismo Versus Modernismo is… difficult, to say the least. Mostly due to the language it uses, which is ironic, since it’s technically just very formal Filipino/Tagalog… Which I haven’t read in any meaningful manner since my time in UP Diliman, which was BEFORE I transfered to PWU. That’s like, six years ago. Boy, am I rusty.
