So... What Now?
Listening to: Switchfoot ~ The Beautiful Letdown

Yesterday evening classes for all levels got canceled, so I got to sleep late (5am?) and wake up late (12pm?).

Yesterday, I was really scared. I was on the PC, working on my Literature paper, regularly updating the homepage of the Inquirer to update myself on what was going on in our country, and all these rumors were flying about on YM. (They still are up to now actually.) At first, I really didn't care; I was too busy with my paper to really notice. It was only when they suspended classes for today that I realized that the situation was serious. A lot of people that I know want a new government to ascend to power; Gloria should be scrapped. I on the other hand beg to differ. Sure, I'm not crazy about her, but who's going to replace her? If PGMA gets booted, Noli De Castro will become the rightful President; and what does he know about running a country? He's a newcaster afterall.

As I looked over my Y!M list last night, I was disturbed. No one seemed to take it as seriously as I did. (Those who did had logged off already.) I admit that I was glad that classes were suspended, but there's more to the situation than getting classes suspended. I was uneasy; I felt like I'd hear explosions at any moment. @_@ Ok, so it may sound a bit exaggerated, but that's really how I felt. And I thought that, if anything really bad did happen to the country, that we'd be asked to leave. LEAVE. Like how the Embassy would try to get us to leave to keep its citizens safe. And I thought of all my friends, and all the people I knew, and I thought of how easily the situation could get out of hand and how any one of them could get hurt or involved, and I felt myself go cold. I was just staring at the screen just thinking about it. It scared me so much, and what's worse is the fact that I can't do anything about it. >_< I'm just lucky that there were some people who kept me company and helped me feel better. :)

I don't know why people seem to think of this as a joke; though the thought of a new government may seem promising, it's not easy. At all. It's not like we're not going to get affected. All of the rallies and coup attempts causes the economy to falter. And people are always complaining about the rising prices; these things contribute greatly to it! Civil unrest political instablitity will follow. And our country will become generally unsafe for a while. Tourists will no longer come to the country; they'll fear for their safety.. We all have to look at the whole picture.

It's back to school for all of us tomorrow. I hope nothing happens. =/

It's things like this that keep me worried. And to think, I was there just this Saturday. >_<

Thanks rayray. :) Sometimes I feel the same way; like it's happening somewhere far away. It was only yesterday that I realized that it was here.

i don't like GMA anymore. i wish she'd just resign, but one: she won't, and two: changing our president w/o changing the system won't go any good. even so, i can't approve of proc 1017 (which sounds much like 1081, the one for martial law), and i can't approve of the raid on the tribune without a permit (they weren't QUITE inciting to sedition - almost pa lang XD).

i'm scared of what can happen in UP tomorrow.
