Tonight is the first night of KP's PCC. I was supposed to sing with KP Choir, but time constraints and last minute changes made things difficult to keep up with. Soooo, instead of attending PCC tonight, I will be heading down to LIPS with some co-workers >:).
There will a second showing for PCC tomorrow, but again, I don't know if I intend on going. One, I didn't reserve any tickets (they're free, but I still haven't reserved any) and two, I kind of don't want to go. I have nothing against the the celebration, but I feel a detachment from the overall experience. Nothing serious, it's just more of a personal thing. I have a lot I still want to do at UCSD, including being a Warren College ambassador and possibly a Warren transfer student leader, and I just don't want my world to gravitate around Filipino culture and whatnot. I mean I still plan to actively pursue Kabayanihan and be supportive of Kamalayan and KP, but I just don't want it to become my lifestyle.
It feels somewhat contradictory talking about this because there have been moments of 'clique' mentality going on in the Filipino scene on campus. That's not a bad thing, but it does deter growth and positive experiences for persons such as myself who do not fervently pursue an active KP/Kaba/Kamalayan lifestyle. I say lifestyle because it does consume your life. And as much as I want to get down with my Filipino brothers, sisters and their supporters, it is not the only
opportunity on and around campus. But whatever, we'll see what happens as my UCSD experience continues and matures.
