… and the answer to that is “I don’t effing well know.”

This is, for all intents and purposes, a rant.

I have a homesick, weathersick boy studying up in Baguio who wants to come home every weekend. Which is of course out of the question since a round trip to Baguio costs a few pesos shy of P1000. Going home every weekend would mean an additional load of at least four thousand pesos, not counting the extra money spent here and there because he is here and there.

I have told him several times to stay put. He has so many reasons why he doesn’t want to. Every now and then imaginary alarms go off in my head. Will he last the year? He can’t apply for transfer to Diliman after one semester, he has to finish the effing year.
