Connecting...


Yesterday is the opening of the 71th season of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines(UAAP) and I watched it live at the Big Dome.

But hey! What's with the photo of the oblation statue, you're maybe asking. Pardon me but I really can't find a good analogy between this oblation statue and my decision to watch the opening of UAAP season 71. I posted it here nevertheless. But wait, let me try to build some connections first:

Let me start with this - University of the Philippines is the host of UAAP this year. So instead of the logo of the university, I chose to put the picture of the oblation statue to add some drama in this entry. And besides, this one is the trademark of UP. Being a UP student, I must support the event, the truth is...I am required to watch the opening although I don't want to. But there's no regret since I've seen a well-prepared, two-thumbs-up opening number.

Unfortunately, watching the event means I have to allot some time for this. And this "time" should have been spent in studying my lesson since I have an exam on Monday. And What am I doing now? Blogging!

Anyway, forgive me for this bad analogy: oblation is synonymous to sacrifice. And being in the opening yesterday, it meant that I have sacrificed my time to study for the exam.

I know I'm not supposed to use oblation in this context but I have to end this post now. It's already late and I can't further think of a good analogy of the photo and my decision to watch the event

*yawning* Good night...
