Day in the Life of Candy
Last Saturday, I helped my little sister shop for a new school bag and a new pair of school shoes. Clutching her hand as we tried to dodge all the back-to-school shoppers (I gave her stern warnings not to let go because she might get kidnapped! Haha!), I suddenly felt a twinge of sadness that I was no longer part of the June rush. I missed the thrill of going to the mall to buy new clothes and new school supplies. I missed the excitement of meeting new classmates and new teachers. I missed the reassurance of knowing that the new school year gives everyone a fresh start, a clean slate.
When I received my diploma, I had this goofy grin on my face and I wanted to do cartwheels on stage (except that I’m a total klutz and I can’t do cartwheels even if my life depended on it, but that’s beside the point). If you look at my graduation pictures, you can almost hear me saying, “I’m so happy I’m on my way out of here!”
But now, barely three months after graduating, I’m starting to miss being a student. Yup, including the homework and the exams. So yeah, I’m such a nerd.
I guess it just takes a while to get used to the fact that I’m no longer officially in school. It helps that right now, I’m learning so many new things that I think I feel like a student againâ€”the Candy staff and all you Candy girls out there are definitely the best teachers ever!

Half-Pinoy Tobit Raphael plays a computer geek in The Internship, so naturally, we had to find out if he’s just as geeky in real life. The verdict? Totally! Geeky obsessions:...
