I am writing this while sitting down on a ledge outside one of the bigger buildings along Maginhawa. I came early for a 6AM class at Muscle Up Parkour. Now it is half past 6. Building’s locked. And I am stuck.
Passengers along the road take a swift look as they pass by me– a weird looking girl wearing trainers, sitting outside what I just realized now, a bank.
What could they be thinking about me? It doesn’t matter much. I’m fine. No, really, I am. I have an ebook, which I’ll read after writing this and will keep on reading until the rain has gone and the skies have cleared a bit.
I wonder though if my case is special. I wonder if someone out there also excitedly wore their hopes on their sleeves today and found out too late that there’s nothing waiting for them. I hope they too have brought a book with them.
As always I end my post with a quote.
“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”

Update: Guavapass has a late and no-show penalty amounting up to 400 pesos. Thankfully, I did not incur the said penalty.
I was able to get in much later, but the coach for the morning was down with the flu. It was a rainy day. Thankfully, I live only a few minutes away from the gym.
Both Guavapass and the gym representative were responsive to my concern. Looking forward to working out and learning new things!
