mapua going malayan
The buzz is on. Engineer Cailipan from my Tribology class confirmed that the administrators had already approved of the school’s new name, Malayan University (good choice, blech!). What the hell were they thinking? They would take away a legacy and a history in itself and exchange it for a silly name? Whoever came up with that stupid idea must be put to death.
Julius was laughing at me when I told him about it. He knows very well how I am after that name. He thinks the Mapua name is one of the few reasons I’m still here, trying to have a good impression, even just by the name. I didn’t have to argue because I still can’t find any other reasons that can possibly be believable. Goodness! I’ve been in Mapua for nearly a decade (since high school, I mean) and not in this lifetime will they ever give me a college diploma (if ever I get one, whenever that may be is another story) with a strange and funny school name on it!
I’ve never really used the Bulletin Board in Friendster but just today, I have posted the same message 15 times! I’ve passed on a message posted by a concerned Mapuan (she may be thinking about losing the impression the Mapua name already have on the people in the outside world, as well) about the news and appealed to everyone to wear black on Monday as a sign of protest. She didn’t have to ask me twice, haha, I am the black man remember? I’ll just have to choose which black shirt suits the event best.
Just so, I have something else up my sleeve. I heard some people at the restroom this afternoon talking about the black propaganda (the message travelled faster than I’ve expected) but I still have to make sure everyone knows about it. Just pray I don’t get caught.
