When I Met Micah: A Short Blog Selection

Ang presidenteng hinding hindi ka iiwanan, dahil kay Micah, May kakampi ka!

Why do I wrote this this in my blog? Because she's effective and she's eventually manage herself when she serve for the students. Not because I want her to win the elections but because I believe in her in my thoughts and in my words, no matter how will costs you.

How this meeting began? Seriously before I want to share how I'd rather go along with this one-on-one meeting, let's look at the flashback. Almost a year ago when I met her during Lasallian Festival 2014 where my friend Ate Noveltie was accompanied by SENTRO friends. My face was familiar to her when we meet again. Ate Micah gave a white flower (tissue) to me, but it was from Ate Noveltie, as a souvenir or a remembrance. After that, we never meet again for a matter of time.

When I heard about the deadline of candidacy, signatures are double lock to approve by the Dean of OSS, so I thought I could see her by surprise. Unfortunately, it didn't work so much. But when the time that SCE published who were the candidates of the whole student council, I'm so surprised that she is the candidate for the race on USC.

I already managed on time on how could I meet her again. Two of my friends at Campus Peer Ministries helped me on this meeting but honestly I always questioned them on how this should be done, from unexpected to planned.

February 6, 2015. The day I want to talk one-on-one about some matters I want to answer from her. Before that, I texted Kuya Adrian on whereabouts before my Physics class starts at 10 AM. Therefore, a message from her says that she invite me to eat and talk. around 12:15 PM, my class finished early so I can find her at JFH Kubo (which she texted me on her location). Unfortunately, I was lost but five minutes later, Ate Micah saw me unexpectedly, The talk for almost two hours began with the first encounter in almost a year and the rest is history.

Before I go serious on the questions, she introduced herself and myself about our life and our past. When I eat at Mila's Diner, I continue my sharing as well as hers to easily recognized our friendship and loyalty. We have the same subject we've favorite for: Social Studies; but different in the field. I like history (seriously, I excelled in that thing) but she like anthropology and sociology. Well, that is fantastic, yet I need to take more time on doing history. But sometimes, I was on the hot seat when she asked my private life.

This column has contains more facts than fiction. Joke :) I want to share about those three questions that she answer. First, about her entry in La Salle Dasma and why Psychology.Second, if I was in my position (as a concerned but confused student), what would she do?. Third, are you born to be a leader? Why?

Here are the answers: For the first part, she was an academic honor student and she wants to study in Ateneo or UP, yet she failed. With God's guidance, she entered DLSU-D and she chose Psychology to determine the behavior of each person she knows when they share to him. The second part, it is so curious. Here's the brief description in entering the service: a Sinag supporter turns to Sentro when someone offers her to run in the student council (that works every time). This is the time I see in her eyes that she's serious in doing some business with the students. Yet, she's wise in choosing the candidate when she thinks first. Finally, the third part have answered: Being a leader influences other people, that's why a leader have a passion in our heart. God is always watching us from above. For short, there is no right or wrong in answering this question. Because of these answers, I believe in her vision and she have a dignity in mandating the students' voices.

Before I end this, I want to say that she's a role model to everyone. A good adviser to the people that penetrates our hearts to do what is best, and a good motivator because she can motivate people's lives to change. She can even managed her pressure and stress through living alone (only if she can think a decision) or be with her family and friends; or to relieve her stress through creating an art in an artistic way (from clay to paint).

Handling this situation convinces me to believe in her, that's why I support her because she's an optimist and always ready to serve the students. If you want help, then call her because she's your ally. That's the essence of loyalty and passion in our hearts. Take it or leave it, I'd rather approve this support.

Honestly, I'm curious on all things; but sometimes when you made up your mind, there's no turning back.

THE SILENT HELPERS: AN OPEN LETTER

"Action speaks louder than words."


That's the time Almers give us a real impact for the millennial people. Whenever they have dirt inside and outside the rooms, they are here to serve and clean the surroundings, without any hesitations. I really never doubt about them: their normal competency and their good and simple attitude. Everywhere, I always saw them watering the soil, cleaning the floors, spending time with other people to get along with them, helping the students in any situations, and humbly making an honest reception to the students with a bit of good deed and honorable reputation. They doing their job as a human because these workers have families to carry and they are always rely on these workers who have determination to work hard and serve hard for the University as well as the manpower agency that they were work for. 
For more than 18 years, despite of some irregularities in the last 4 years, they are now leaving the university. And literally, that's sa…

A Birthday to The Greatest Girl I've Ever Met

NOTE: Probably Micah G. is my bet to win the USC; and miracles happen, she won. But this person ultimately surprised me only because I want to questioned her about the issues of the University and how they handle it (the actions done). Of course, history changed the presence in her college. So here we go: telling a story that stuck to my memory over and over again. (Just like Inside Out!)
March 2, 2015, the electoral debate. I have no classes after 4:00 PM when I watched this event organized by the Student Commission on Elections. I was also doing a technical paper about Electrostatics (more complicated in reference and sentences) when the COEd slate of both parties spoke in the debate. And later, the USC slate. Now, to get an attention from some of the people who watched the debate, I asked several people about the issues and of course, their answer to my curious mind about the issues mostly within the University premises.
After the debate, I want to speak to Ate Micah directly about h…

SHERLOCK HOLMES: MURDERS IN THE NORTH REVIEW

Nanood. Napahanga. Napakagaling.

The Philippine setting of Sherlock Holmes is a definite one kind of mystery with a humorous lines and gestures as well as the virtuous performance from the female version of Sherlock Holmes, who delivers more British way of acting to the way Dr. John Watson is so smooth in speaking his lines and his versatile action. The two are going to solve the problem or case about the mysterious deaths in the North village, leading them into the truth about the real interests of a wealthy businessman and mayor. Whatever the production team creates different lightning angles and one-shot performances of some students in the limelight, even the whole plot is interesting yet so complex, this play deserves to praise creatively and critically.
For creativity, this play has a complete and nice scene and design despite of its small location, with different scenes that soothes the mystery-thriller more conducive to ask "What will happens next?" and its original…
