They were in UP. Late at night.

Few years ago, about two or three, she was having a conversation with a friend in UP.

 After her 6:00PM class, he picked her up in Manila where her university resides. They went straight to UP Diliman to see people jogging, training and walking even late at night; grabbed something to eat, sat down and talked.

Life was crucial for her during those times. School papers were there yelling at her to finish them and get a grade of flat one (1.00) to cling and to get on the stereotype phase that the basis of one's intelligence and success in life are the grades they designed their transcript of records. She was then pressured.

She haven't had enough sleep and she didn't even know how she really looked like - she was once a student leader; not that she was complaining, she was (and still she is) happy, grateful and blessed... that if she had the chance to go back to those days (college days) again, she would definitely dive in, and perhaps think whether if she still wants to…

Later on, equality and fairness took place and promoted. Gender wise, stability, ethnic race or group, intelligence, market placement and value, so on and so forth. Concentrating now on gender equality, referring from past facts ventures, women get the same as men - no higher entities, no more stronger and weaker. In a nutshell, fair.
