By The Swimming Pool

So we are back to school. Drink and party the first month, do CATS the second month, and start studying for exams on the third month. That’s the schedule.

As rainy as the weather is, I can’t wait to swim. Am still embarrassed to admit my campus does not have a swimming pool. How can you claim sports facilities without a swimming pool? It’s such a shame. For most of our swimming, we go to the nearby Senate Hotel.

So last semester, in the middle of exams, I went swimming alone. My friends couldn’t come because they were studying for exams, or washing clothes, or catching up with sleep…or whatever.

I was sunning myself by the poolside, my eyes closed in that state of almost-asleep yet can feel the sun, when I was suddenly carried and thrown into the water. I was so mad..I turned to the guy who had thrown me in (he had jumped in after me), but he was ready with an apology and ready smile. He then asked me to kiss him.

Ok, I didn’t because I was then in a relationship (which lasted all of two months 😉 ) Not that I was not tempted. It was a fun filled afternoon after that. We competed in swimming, dived in after coins, later he gave me his very white (xxtra points) towel to wrap myself in when it became cold, and when I didn’t give him my number, he found me on FB.

And who says campus guys can’t be romantic? Sadly, he’s out of session. Maybe next semester.
