Sniper

Sometimes, some a lot all of us commit errors. Hey, since nobody’s perfect, its absolutely inevitable. You may ask why we are still not able to progress while others do. Only a few are intelligent enough to admit them, most are not. When i say admitting, I always include the factor of correcting that error, not passing it to somebody else. That is another topic, I must say. If you would like to take your stand, click below. If not, still click. Who knows, this might open the doors of your mind in a way, if not re-open them.

BANG.

All That Boom

Time surely flies. It’s already November and Christmas is fast approaching. But then hey, I think New Year is coming faster than we thought it is. I guess you know what I mean. (Glorietta 2, Bacoor, Batasan Pambansa anyone?)

Well, I’m still looking for that ‘boom’ in my second semester of my 2 years existence in this university. It has been quite a lame start, so far. And so this ends my lame post. I’ll be off for some hardcore brain-sucking.

Twisting the Arms of Fate

Sometimes, the sembreak does not inject fun running into my bloodstream anymore. The once happy thought has now suddenly disappeared. Hearing the word alone seems like the heavens have fallen down on my shoulders. Whenever sembreak approaches, what was supposed to be excitement is replaced by fear of having the enjoyment of life taken away for weeks. And the moment sembreak arrives and stops in front of me, I am like a cigarette addict waiting for that small stick of nicotine to touch my peckish lips again. And that nicotine for me is, surprisingly, school days.

But don’t get me wrong. Yes, way back when I was young, not to mention small, I love breaks. Who doesn’t, anyway? Even simple recess periods can make that tiny ‘dimple’ (yes, even in its not so obvious size, I actually consider it a dimple) in my left cheek appear and eventually put a smile in my face. Now that I’m approximately ten years older, my point of view about sembreaks and vacations in particular, were changed a lot. Doing the activities in the likes of sitting in the sofa with nothing to do but face either the idiot box or the computer is nothing but an old cliche now. Well, at least for me.

As the years pass by, school days have actually provided more fun now than when I was younger. The then doomsday for me is now my newly found heaven. Looks like the world is upside down for me now. I feel lighter when I am inside the four corners of an air-conditioned classroom rather than that in my own room. Perhaps I love the outside world better now. To add up to all of it, it seems that what my dad told me back in fourth year high school proves itself to be true.

Enjoy your high school and your future college life. They’re the best things education can give you. Consider the fun as a compensation for all the hardships you’ll get.

Well I guess that’s exactly what’s happening as of now. And in just a span of three days, the fun is about to begin, again. At siguradong magiging makulay na naman ang buhay ko.

Watch your back

Sometimes, even your best friends, can be your worst enemies. You may want to reconsider little fights you have encountered during the years, yet a simple act of deceit will cause the destruction of your relationship. Instead of defending you when you are down, some of them are even first ones to spread your flaws to the world. Over time, this character of your fiends or “frienemies” then develop, with you barely noticing it. Continue reading ‘Watch your back’

Senseless Holiday

I was just lying down at my bed doing nothing but cherishing the cold feeling that the bedsheet provides for me, one lazy Thursday morning. August 9. My mind-tacked schedule of activities says that I am supposed to take two long exams in Humanities II and Comm III this afternoon. But those are out of the line now, at least temporarily. Thanks to the news flash last night, which announced the suspension of classes today – including college students (luckily for UP too). Now we’re indulging ourselves the gift of a two-day school break. (Well not really, because there are still a lot to study about, but the extra time may come in handy.)

But really, should I be thankful?

Another Day At The Sauna

It’s thirty minutes past seven in the evening. I’ve been spending some time watching news about whatever President Arroyo said in her recent State Of the Nation Address earlier this afternoon. I can’t help but listen to the report, since I was too tired to switch channels anymore, and I was lying down on the sofa to rest. So here goes nothing. Oh, and please note that these are only my opinions, you are free to criticize whichever way you like, but don’t be harsh on me. I’m not a member of the media nor critics, anyway.

Well basically, almost everything was scripted during President Arroyo’s speech. It’s not that I’m purely anti-administration, but really, it’s obvious that the words she uttered were only about the positive points of the administration in the past year. Every sentence was rehearsed, every clap by the audience was timed and counted. Worst of all, the government had selective hearing and speaking during the full 56 minutes of the SONA. Rallies were held under control by the police until the president finished her ‘magnificent’ speech.

I just hope that whatever she’s cooking for us right now would come out good enough for everyone in the country. Well honestly, considering the number of projects for our country, I do not expect them to be accomplished. They would be more likely dreams for some, they’re way too far from reality. Yes, there may be many strong points included in her speech, but how about the weak ones? Won’t they concentrate on them the next time around instead of concealing it?

I highly doubt it if she’ll get a high grade for her report card.
