Reminders

Recently, we have been organizing documents and house materials. I decided to organize the documents stored in the yellow box that is located at the corner of our kitchen. There were important papers and sentimental documents in the box, but there were few things that immediately caught my attention. I got the chance to see my past plates and artworks again.

Touching and examining each plate was like walking down the path where I started my adventures in college with innocence and diligence. Each plate has its own memory and it has a very powerful impact to me. One plate reminded me of the time when I rummaged through my classmate’s phone to find some faces of people for the facial emotion activity that we had in Body Parts Drawing. Another artwork reminded me of my ventures in joining the annual Petron Art Competition! It was a memory that I will always cherish for it taught me so many things such as hard work, perseverance, and wisdom. Another piece reminded me of the hype that I had towards drawing Disney characters! I actually Disney-fied some of my high school classmates, and I chuckled when I saw the drawing! Another piece reminded me of how I met my first college best friends and their essentiality in making FA a fun course! Also, some of the plates greatly reminded me of the helpful professors that I had in FA, and I will forever cherish their essentiality in making my talent grow in a challenging way. They showed me that learning can be a friendly process with the involvement of the teacher who shares lessons, and the student who works and makes heaps of plates and artworks! I was only asking for an improvement, but they have given me more than that in a very casual way. However, I will never forget the plates that reminded me of the deadlines that I had! Some of my plates were rushed, but as soon as I reached the campus with hours to spare, I added details to make an improvement.

Well, the set of artworks as a whole reminded me of my diligence and perseverance towards every task when I was an FA student in AUP; this reminder would be very helpful now that I am about to become a sophomore student in UP. It tells me that diligence and perseverance will always get me to where my goals are, even though college is a distinct series of drastic success and failure. Thankfully, this small task that I have accomplished earlier reminded me of my true purpose as a college student.

Strut for IT

sdgvdfgvdf

Sorry for the late update, but here I go! Last week’s activity was very easy and I liked it! Making a presentation on Strut was quite overwhelming, but after few minutes of adjusting, I went with the flow. Strut is like Powerpoint Presentation, but with less features. Although it has less features, Strut has other unique features that’ll help your presentation gain more credibility!

Our exercise for that day was to make a presentation about a book, movie or show that we would like to recommend. I picked The Hunger Games because I am a big fan of the movie series (and also, the books!).

To conclude everything that I learned for that day, I learned that Prezi and PPT are not the only options to consider when you want to present a topic. There are more presentation tools that a student can use to make his/er topic credible.

Dear Friend #4

Hey there! Are you still afraid of threats like pointy objects being impaled at you for no reason at all? Of course you are. I miss you. I remember the last time when we had a formal talk; we were at a kubo near the canteen that sells scrumptious spaghetti. You seem worried about unsettled matters in your academic life. I calmly helped you with your activity. I told myself, I am going to miss this type of moment with a friend like you. You always ran to me with worried words. I am truthfully sorry if I shrugged some of your problems. I was always expecting you to arrange those unsettled matters, so I remained silent if I had to. You were one of my first buddies in the school, and I will always be thankful for it. When we were at the classroom, I feel like I have someone who reminds me of Santa Rosa, my home and your home. I also feel like you’re someone who I can relate to with personal matters. Thankfully, I was never wrong. We will not be seeing each other for a long time! But I hope we will still be there to reminisce the moments that we had with our bubbly friends in our course.

The Infraction and The Complaint (Part 2)

Now let me ask you

complain

When was the last time you read the rules and regulation on the syllabus? So you can stop complaining why the prof is strict.

When was the last time you cared to move your book and written notes? So you can stop complaining why he isn’t worthy. He gave you notes, do your part, and come to realize your worth (long story short, your worth is to study in his class, are you studying?).

When was the last time you’ve punctually done your homework and dumped activities? So you can stop complaining why (more…)

The Infraction and The Complaint

One morning, I successfully finished my driving class and I proceeded to my next subject. As I was walking at the sidewalk near the canteen (the canteen next to the university store), I caught sight of a familiar scene; a student guard giving a notice to a lady whose skirt hemline is above her beautiful knees. I felt her struggle to explain her side of the story, but the guard was adamant to give her the (more…)

Haim: Planting a Seed of Satisfaction

I am currently listening to “Falling” by Haim. Try listening to their songs and you might happily find your favorite among the bunch!

Back in June or July 2014, my colleague unintentionally introduced “Go Slow” to me and I found it satisfyingly catchy. After few months of being busy, I wiped my dusty laptop and began searching for their music and concert videos. Since then, listening to their music has planted a seed of satisfaction in  my mind.

Facebook Names

Still, there are people on Facebook who do not properly use their names. Who knows why! Back in 2011-2012, it was normal for me to see friends with different names on Facebook; there were no cringes. Time has flown rapidly and things have changed eagerly, we outgrew the trend and considered it out of style.

But what should you do whenever you encounter someone on Facebook with the same instance? Respect the person. No matter how it makes you cringe with disgust to see that “Bhozxs *Insert Name*”, you should be able to detect the person’s existence; he is a human being and he has feelings too. If it’s making you uncomfortable, approach him politely and kindly, and tell him about what you think.

On the other way around, it is preferable to use your real name on Facebook. Why? For the efficiency of pinpointing one’s identity, and for the efficiency of finding a specific person’s official account on Facebook.
