intramurals

volleyball

I have little to no hand-eye coordination. I was born and raised a soccer player and I’m most comfortable with my feet/legs.

So our intramural soccer team decided that they wanted to participate in as many sports as possible. Soccer, Ultimate (champions!!), Flag-Football, and now Volleyball.

I LOVE IT.

I’m not good, but I try and we all have fun.

And boy, did my wrist hurt after the first game. But slowly I’m getting better and more confident and we’re winning more games. Playoffs start next Tuesday.

Wish me luck!

Kwentong Intrams.

Naexprience niyo na bang sumali ng Mr. and Ms. intrams noong elem o highschool kayo? Pwes ako sa maniwala man kayo o hindi ay sumali ako noong grade 4. Yes. Deal with it. 

Actually ayokong sumali talaga (Yes, pahumble) hanggang sa..

Me: Ma'am ayoko pong sumali. Unfair naman po na sobrang gwapo ako at sila hindi.

Ma'am Science was like:

At ako was like…

At sabi ni Ma'am…

Di kita bibigyan ng grade na line of 9!

At ako ay napa…

Kahit deep inside…

Kaya sumali ako. Grade conscious ata ‘to! At alam kong di ako dadalhin ng tatay ko sa Jolibee kapag di ako nag-honor student dahil yun lang naman ang gusto ko sa buhay at hindi yang putanginang love love na yan.

Bale ganito itsura ko sa pictorial…

Tangina right? Thank you puberty! 

At sa awa naman ng diyos ay naipartner ako sa crush ko / first love ko na si Christine a.k.a San Chai (Dahil uso nga ang putanginang Meteor Garden) at ako nga si Dao Ming Fats. LOL

Naalala ko habang rumarampa kami ay binigyan niya ako ng Tip.

San Chai: Kapag ngingiti ka, sabihin mo “Ting ting ting!” tignan mo perfect smile ka.

Try mo man bago ka magselfie. Oh diba? May natutunan ka sa blog ko!

Anyway sa talent portion naman ay nagcontemporary ballet (O kung ano mang tawag don) sa saliw ng “Only Hope” ni Mandy Moore na usong uso din noon at kapanahunan ni Billy Crawford na international shit pa siya and unmolested ni Kuya Germs. WAAAHT!

Alam niyo ba yung part na… “Singing at the top of my lungs… I’m givin it… AhhhhHHHHH.. AH AH…”

Bale sasaluhin ko si San Chai kapag tumalon siya na ang hawak ay banda sa tuhod (Walang malisya) at siya naman ay may sprespread ng arms ala oble habang iniikot ko. 

Something like this. Brown skinned ako at siya medyo gray. Basta.

Pagdating sa competition proper, nahawakan ko siya sa bandang kiki niya (Di ko sinasadya) at naghiyawan ang audience….. Audience Impact diba?

Kaso…

Naakwardan siya at nagbooty shake para makaalis sa hawak ko kaya pareho kaming nahulog.

Yun talaga ang panahon na napapa… shit. shit. lord patapusin mo na 'to. shit. lupa kainin mo ako… Habang umeexit.

Pagdating naman sa sportswear, di na namin napagusapan kaya…. Swimming ang attire niya habang ako…….. Badminton.

Yes.

Badminton. 

Di niyo alam gano ka-awkward na habang pumapalo palo ako ay lumalangoy langoy siya sa stage na walang tubig.

Awkwaaaaard.

At nang awarding ceremonies na ay 3rd place ako. In your face motherfokaaaas! At si San Chai ay 2nd place. Nagustuhan ata nila ang paglalangoy niya na walang tubig sa stage. LOL

At last naka 93 ako sa science. 

Random Question:

Is the Philippines the only one with like regular Intramurals? You know, Intramurals? Those things where different classes/teams from the same level battle it out and compete in multiple sporting and cultural events for a time span of one week? I don’t know. Basically it’s like a Sports Fest of some sort.

Most stuff about schools outside the country that I see has nada about it anywhere. Does your country have “Intrams”/Intramurals or some sort of sports week in your school?

(Also, the competing in sports thing is somewhat mandatory for each student to have)

:D hahahhahaha, intrams(sports week) :))

translate:

This intrams, how do you say you love someone? If only you were a ball……

1)If only you were a volleyball so that you’ll be MINE. Gets? :))

2)If only you were a basketball so that I will do anything to get you.

3)If only you were a ball so that whenever I would throw, you come back bouncing and bouncing to me.

4)If only you were a shuttlecock so that I will spank you and you will find another!

5)I will commit myself to win in this sport as long as you are the prize

<3 Nice one indeed :D

Choose your fave line! Or make your own! :))

Enjoy! :))) 

Played intramural soccer with the IT team (our team name is Ctrl-Alt-Del, FYI). And it was awesome. One of the guys on our team used to play soccer in high school so he was obviously our MVP. But I think I did pretty well. I was all across the court. I was proactive and showed my cardio, at least. And I made one goal (though I had the opportunity for a couple more… heh).

I didn’t think I would like soccer as a sport. Idk why. Maybe part of it was that I didn’t think I could handle the cardio. But I actually really liked the cardio. It’s like continuous short bursts of sprints. Which is definitely challenging, but you become so focused on the game that it’s easier to push through than if I were just doing random sprints for a workout.

I’m super pumped for next time.

From the archive—More than 80 percent of UChicago students participated in at least one of 46 intramural events, noted the Magazine’s 1981 Winter issue.

Peter Bernstein, AB’81, MBA'85, discussed what inspired students to play IM:

“You may have a 3.8 G.P.A.; you may have inherited your uncle’s Trans-Am and his Wendy’s Franchise; but I’ve got a damn good chance of winning Independent Coed Doubles Ping-Pong.”

It was a year of unusual team names: the Pork Belly Futures, the Sick Dogs, the Dead Popes, the Complete Greek Tragedies, and Norval’s Criminals.

LAST INTRAMURALS in SSA

Time has flown so fast. I was not able to anticipate that everything will come by swiftly without me knowing. Today, October 25, 2011, my parents 24th Wedding Anniversary, is the first day of my last Intramurals. Tomorrow is the day that IV- Wisdom will perform the dance we worked so hard for all these months. It is unpredictable but I will keep my faith that we can do it. I will give my best not merely for the win but for the memory I will always look back to. October 26, 2011 is the day Wisdom will give their all and enjoy the moment. Win or lose I will always be proud of Wisdom, who gave their very best and exceeded their potentials to present a performance that is a product of their minds and most importantly of their hearts. 

WISDOM, FIGHTING! Let’s do well not for them to be impressed but for us to be HAPPY.
