Impromptu Interview

Ms. Lubrica. I’m so glad I caught up with you. Could you please spare our magazine time for an interview?

Sure. Ask away.

Okay. Thank you so much. So, could you tell us about your last semester?

It was great. It was definitely one big roller coaster ride. So much has happened, and I’m just so soo thankful because God has been sooo, sooo FAITHFUL.

Oceans will part, huh?

Yeah. Oceans will part. Rather, the oceans just parted.Everything that God allowed me to do this sem… well, I only managed to do it because He parted the red sea first. (Or was it the river Jordan…? Hmmm…)

But there were a few Eqyptians chasing you, right?

Ha! There sure were. Not just a few – there were a LOT of them. But they couldn’t scare me… Even if the Egyptians came through the form of a lost laptop, disappointing grades, emotional turmoil and discouraging circumstances… well… God just drowned them all in the end.

You spoke about emotional turmoil… what’s that about?

Well, I guess this has been one of my overlydramatic semesters. I was just talking about all those times (cynde’s post-birthday, dates with ate patty, hehehe) that my emotions got the better of me… those times that I spent nights crying… times that I got up out of bed unable to see anything because of my swollen eyes… But I did learn a lot from those times.

You did? Like what?

"Don’t be a Dam. Be a river." – Ate Patty.

"Offer it to the fire." – Ate Nevs.

Actually, it’s easier said than done… But I’m learning.

I understand. So… What would you consider the happiest day of the last semester?

The day I made it through my defence and had the assurance that I was a graduate…? Hmmm… nahh… I was elated that time but that wasn’t  really the happiest day.. it was a hectic and haggard day what with my JAP10 exam… BPI signup… anyway – hmm.. Lemme think. The MFest? Ablaze for God?? There were a lot of happy days but I guess that the happiest day last semester was the midyear celebration… I was so happy to see my bible studies attend the service. Not only that, it was a real breakthrough for the worship team…. ate pia was there… you know… sigh. It was a great day.

Okay, so that was the happiest day. What about the saddest…?

(What is this, a slum book???) Well, I guess that would have to be the night I called up my mom and dad and told them that my laptop was stolen. That was definitely heartbreaking.

Okay, so much reminiscing your past semester. So, what’s your plan for the next semester???

I have sooo many plans… They’re still in the incubation stage and most of those plans involve my cellmates… so my cellmates better watch out…! The next sem is going to be a BLASSSTTT!!!!

Exciting. Well, thank you very much Ms. Lubrica for giving us the time for this interview. We’ll let you know when we’ll be publishing the article about you. See you next time.

No problem. See you!
