The Pinning Ceremony (with a twist)


July 9, 2012 is date for the Negros Oriental State University--College of Education's (Main Campus I) First Ever Pinning and Candle Lighting Ceremony. Congratulations to all the senior students who will be having their practice teaching next semester. 

I, for one, am excited for next semester's practice teaching and we will already be deployed to our respective schools of choice soon. The Pinning  and Candle Lighting Ceremony, though unrehearsed, ended well. But before it happened, there was a certain twist. 

I went to school earlier today but later found out that I was just right on time for the mass. Much to my horror, I realized I was wearing the wrong uniform. Instead of the skirt, I was wearing my pair of slacks (and to think I have no single idea why everyone knew that the pinning ceremony required us to wear our skirts and not our slacks). Dang! 

What am I gonna do now? I do not want to be scolded. -_-

I tried to solicit help from my close friends but our efforts were of no avail. I decided not to attend the mass. I hurried to the office, clueless of what to do. There, I found my sister talking (again) and I told her my big dilemma. 

Si Ate Merms tej. Text her. (Ate Merms [Wilma] is my dear best friend)

I remembered my best friend. I called her for the nth time but no one answered on the other line. I thought she did not get my calls. Hoping that the mass would take a longer time, I waited for Wilma in the office. I kept my fingers crossed that she got my text messages and my missed calls. 

Finally, at 9 o'clock, she came in, smiling. I told her my problem and asked her to borrow her skirt. Without further chars, she went home, came back 15 minutes later and was panting. I thanked her a million times, changed my outfit, rushed to the gymnasium, and arrived just minutes before the procession starts. 

So there I finally was, beaming with pride beside my father who latched me my personalized pin. 

Hooo! What a day! 

Lessons learned: 
  • Always ask for clarifications one night before the event. 
  • A real friend will do everything to help you -- even if it means missing her P.E. class.

  12. Wow! Congrats! Good luck sa practice teaching! Naalala ko 1st day as practice teacher, sobrang kabado ko talaga parang gusto ko ng mag-back out, good thing I re-gained my confidence! I was so happy I got over it, my students were so cooperative as well. Nakaka-miss din magturo. ヅ

    Good luck ulit! Kaya mo yan! Have faith in God & in yourself! ヅ

  13. whew. that was scary! I've been to a friend's pinning ceremony as a "parent" and everyone in their batch was so prepared with all their hair and make-up done. I can't believe you were so lax.

    Congrats by the way!
