To start off, I’d like to honestly say that my OrSem experience wasn’t that great. For one, during OrSem i realized that I wasn’t as ‘game’ as I thought I would. I have always somewhat known that I was introverted at some level, but orsem made me feel like I was the least game person in the block. I remember dreading the 2nd day of OrSem because I didn’t know what to do because everyone was so different, and I was uncomfortable. I was sad because I realized that I’d have to be with my block for most of my college life, and i think at that point I was scared.
AFTER ORSEM THOUGH, everything changed for me. It wasn’t an overnight thing, but I guess I realized after the first sem that I wasn’t gonna be alone after all. I learned I had a lot of things in common with my other blockmates, and I felt better. What’s amazing though, is that despite the differences (a lot of us are really different from each other), when we’re all together, I guess everything just falls into place. I’m so thankful for my block because they’ve become family to me. I never thought I’d find my niche in college wherein I could have people with the exact same humor as mine (most of the time). There have been countless moments where I’d be amazed at how some of them (mainly my closest blockmates) made their way into my life and how well we fit together as friends. <3
A lot has changed through the semesters, along with our hair colors. Some have gone (shifted out), but there have been new ones who came and stayed for good. We have a lot of adopted blockmates, which I guess proves that we’re a lovable block. Here are some random photos hehe
