Close to the end

Last three weeks of this semester and as expected I consider these days as the time to get/be haggard. Tomorrow is the taping of our news program and I hope things will turn out fine. I wrote the script/spiels for the said program. But that it just the first stage after the taping will be the editng. And that phase is quite a task since its a bit tricky and complicated. Apart from our news program, we also have a radio news program in which I am one of the anchors [apart from writing the script]. It will go on air on October 9 but we have to do rehearsal for that. Not to be missed is our short film which is also due on the exam week [which is 2 weeks away], my group has a concept already we just need to find the right schedule where we could shoot. Also. we have to write a radio and tv script w/c contains 10 stories for another class as the final requirement. And for Computer Journalism we need to design a magazine coverpage with ourselves us cover boys/girls (I still could not think of a concept, any suggestions?). And the minor subjects are not to be left out, in sociology we need to write a book review where we could relate a sociological principle, the project is quite okay since we only need to write a one page essay. But in economics, we need to write a research paper, we have a topic and the materials already but with all those tasks I'm finding it hard to squeeze it. Haaay, that's how hectic this final term is, but these school stuff soon will end soon anyway, so to the other people who alos have lots of "academic hardships" just remember we're close to the end so hold on.

Baguio Bits

It was my first time to be in Baguio and I'm so glad I was one of the "chosen ones" to attend on the 5th OSSEI National Seminar on Campus Journalism. I really like the Baguio aside from the "centralized aircon" , I just love how I feel so comfortable and happy being there. How I wish I lived there. It was indeed one of the best times of my life. Here are some random stuff that relates with my Baguio Trip.

1. Clean Comfort Rooms
Every public CR we saw in Baguio is labeled as this. Di ba when a place is labeled COMFORT dapat talaga CLEAN?

2. Cheap Finds
Although I did not shop that much, any shopaholic will go gaga over the cheap finds you will see there. There's a wide array of choices, haaayy. If only I had the money...

3. SM Baguio
SM Baguio is located in a very high place, what's funny that we thought that it was near our hotel because it seems near. But we were proven wrong hehe. And mas malamig sa labas kesa sa loob ng SM pero when you reach the Veranda things will go great because of the great view and the weather.

4. Taxis
Mas honest ang mga taxi drivers dun, may silbi talaga yung metro.

I'll upload pics soon..

I miss Baguio already...

I'm wearing red

Because it's my birthday, I'm 19 years old. I don't know when and where did it started but as long as I remember when you are wearing a red shirt, people will comment "Birthday mo?".

Last night I've read my diaries of the past years (I've started writing one on December 25, 2003) and I notice that my birthday entry will always have this words 'I'm growing old and I hate it". Well, I just cant believe that I'm growing old so fast. This is my last year of being a teenager and next year I'll be a "tweener",the transition stage from your teenage years to adulthood, your not a teen anymore but not yet adultl;in short, in between. I'm thinking of the future too early. I'm like that when I was 9, I was already looking forward on my 10th birthday coz I will be "in double digits' already. haaay... I'm 19 but I can't feel like one. When I was younger I always think that 19-year-old people are mature but now that I'm 19 I don't feel like that, I still feel like I'm 15 or worse, 12.

So how will I celebrate my birthday? Well, I just treat this like an ordinary day for sure Nanay will cook something delicious tonight. I never hold parties or treat my friends, I'm kuripot kasi hehehe.

My birthday wish? It may sound a cliche or showbiz but I wish for good health not just for me but for my family also.

Thank you to all who greeted me happy birthday yesterday and the days before, aga ah.!

I don't feel good, I'm frustrated
I disappointed myself and most likely other people
I'm too idealistic
I set goals that I could not achieve
In my quest to take the shorter route
I ended up getting lost
There are so many obstacls
I'm scared, worried.
I really feel useless and incompetent
I hope at the end of the day
Things will turn out fine

Grade School days rock

1. The greetings
"Good Morning Ms.____, Good morning classmates, nice to see you again, Maaaaaabuu-HAY!"
"Good morning _______, why are you late?"
"Good Morning Mam, Good Morning classmates, I'm sorry I'm late because_______"
"Good bye Mam, Goodbye classmate, see you to--mo-ROW!"

2. Notebook games
SOS (using math notebooks), "target shooting" sa notebook, guessing game ala wheel of fortune "do you have a letter "a"), FLAMES, PANTS (people, animals, names, things, arrgah I forgot what "s" stands for)

3. Nutrition Month

-parades and those production numbes by each grade level.In grade 3, I was an '"ice cream", astig costume ko nun. Cook fests, Nutri Jingle, Poster making contest, Essay writing contest (this really frustrated me because I always join but I never reach the top3)

4. Stage parents

-I believe that in grade school sucking up to the teachers are really predominant especially for parents. I remember one parent who gave big gifts to teachers during christmas parties. Parents who are so active in school programs, Parents who complain when their kids drop in the honor's list. Good thing my parents are not like them.

5. Field Demonstration/ Rhythmic Aerobics

-The contest where teachers gave their heart out to teach their pupils steps that will make them win. Hmmm.. my favorite was in grade 2, we used pompoms and our music was Total Eclipse of My Heart, we won and we were so colourful. I also like what we did in grade 5, we used sticks and the music is 'Tie a Yellow Ribbon".

6. Christmas Parties

-Kris Kringle, I love it, I'm always excited to see what will I get for 'something long, red, sweet" etc... Malas lang pag laging absent yung nakabunot sa iyo. Christmas games, in grade 5 I won at the Stop Dance contest, haha. In grade 3, ang nakabunot sa akin yung MAPE teacher ko, yung nabunot ko naman yung Adviser ko,ang saya. Also, during Kris Kringle I first used"forg" as alias which until now I still use. Wow, during that time you could buy decent gifts for 50 pesos or less. Here were the gifts I received during the grade school Christmas parties:

Grade 1: 5 briefs (hahaha)
Grade 2: Chess
Grade 3: Snake and Ladders
Grade 4: Picture Frame
Grade 5: Superman Mug
Grade 6: Lamp

7. The Cartoons Chat

We form circles to talk about cartoons, especially afternoon anime. We would discuss what happened, what will happen, and more stuff. I remember during the time Fushigi Yugi was popular my classmates, the girls in particular, went gaga over Tamahome,as if he is a real person. Also, during the popularity of Pokemon, we would play games like "Anong pokemon yung no. 16", dati memorize ko yun hehehe.
