Twenty minutes into Office Space, which I’m happy to get from one of the obscure DVD stalls at Good Earth in Avenida, Peter Gibbons bolted me with this-
What would you do (if you have a million dollars, and don’t have to work)?
(Yeah). I’d relax. I’d sit on my a** all day. I would do nothing.
Oh frogginsheet, pasok na pasok sa banga! I would not even need a million dollars to motivate me to do it. At best, a leave of absence one week before actually taking it would kick things off. The only issue is, until when? I only have less than a hundred hours of leave credits, man. So probably one million dollars would help after all.
By the way, I haven’t finished Office Space but I intend to very soon.
Probably after dropping my classes.
I can hear my mother now, “Nagsasayang ka ng pera!”
My own money. Which I will earn back in a few months. Kaya lang credibility and self-worth ang nakataya naman doon. My gosh, I have to submit a paper tomorrow and on Tuesday and wala pa ako ni isang letter na nagagawa. And look at me, I’m blogging.
Damn I can’t stop thinking of the new DVDs I bought. Patawarin ako ni Edu but I just have to watch/rewatch Dying Young, Chances Are, Snatch, Full Metal Jacket and Thelma & Louise very soon. Think about it, mas masarap ang buhay ko noong every Saturday, wala akong ginawa kundi manood ng VCDs na hiram sa Video City habang kumakain ng pepperoni pizza. Paulit-ulit lang yun linggo-linggo kahit nagka-boyfriend ako (as in movie marathon lang, promise). That was the same time when nakakabili din ako ng libro ng hindi galing sa Booksale o sa Buy The Book. Life was simpler then. Until I went back to school. So sinisisi ko talaga sya.
And as my friend STH told me via text kanina, “Whine ka ng whine, e di i-drop mo na lang!”
[Note, according to this, the last date of dropping of subjects is on February 18. Ladeeedaaaa….]
