> Ganun po ba? Di na po ba talaga pwede?
- Nasakanya na lahat e, di na raw siya tatanggap. Teka, nandyan siya, hintayin mo, sakanya ka makiusap.
+ What do you need?
> Sir, I'll just pass my letter of Appeal. I've been dism...
+ Sorry, I can't help you there. You had enough time to pass that appeal. You don't even know how to sign your name!
> Sir, please give me one more chance. I waited for the line at the admin office that's why I wasn't able to pass it earlier.
+ OK, I'll give you a chance to defend your case.
+ Hurry up, I don't have all time!
> I'm sorry sir, here's my situation. I was dismissed....blah blah.

> Sir kasi po... blahblah
+ Is that it? You're just telling me what's written on your letter. Can't you expound more?
> Uhm sir, I failed because....
+ You know what, I don't think I can believe you. I'm not saying your lying but I don't believe your excuse.
+ I'm very sorry for your situation but for this semester, I can't accept you in this department. You have to find another department or college that will accept you.
> But sir, please give me one more chance.

This was how my last enrollment in the college of engineering went. And yes, the interview is still very fresh in my memory. After a year, I think I've been able to move on and settle with where I am now. While I do feel regret from time to time, I know I'm in a better place. Then again, I really miss that life, and those people. Sigh. Here's to a better second semester! XD
