Triumvirate #8: Cubes, Bitches & Options

Each episode of The Triumvirate Series is a crystallization of how my day went in three themes. This is my own, novel way of writing a daily journal. Read the rationale here.

Rubik's Cubes at the OrComSoc Booth
  1. Cubes. Our undergraduate course’s official organization put up a perya-like booth a while ago. A nice prize (a limited edition journal) is up for grabs. If you can make a certain color-combination by throwing 5 Rubik’s cubes out of whim, the prize is yours. I was doing some complex mathematical computations in my head to determine one’s chance of winning the prize. Apparently, it’s just a freaking 2%! I said to them (the booth people) that the challenge is so hard that good luck should be your girlfriend if not your fiancé. At the end of the day, the people in the booth told me that 3 people already got a prize. Something may be highly improbable to happen, but it is, still, possible.
  2. Bitches. Our Speech Communication 183 (Audio-visual communication) professor told us that there are many bitches out there in the corporate world. You would usually see them drinking Starbucks coffee and posing with their Fendi bags while they listen to your pitch. They could be stoic, hard-faced, indifferent, unemotional, mean, apathetic, inert and *insert another word with similar connotation here*. The only mineral that could scratch a diamond is another diamond; the only person who can bitch a bitch is another bitch.
  3. Options. I had my usual Thursday-debate training. Kuya Yves (one of our seniors, and one of our mentors) said that when you agree to some extent, you also disagree to some extent and it is also true the other way around. I don’t know the reason behind the equivocalness of life’s many concepts. When we choose an option, we unconsciously choose another different option; a single choice has its hidden twin.
