COLLEGE LIFE (As it is)

College life has never been easy especially to those freshmen who will be entering in College this year (tapos na sa ibang college pero sa TUP-T patapos palang). Entering college is like being unprepared for a gory battle, being naive about a new subject and being attacked without alarms from the higher forces. It’s like venturing into something unknown, something uncertain and something unpredictable.
College life has always been accompanied with struggles, sacrifice, pain and slight euphoria. Everyday seems like an eternity, it is on weekends when we feel the need to unwind from the hustle and bustle of school life (pero saturday lang ata ang rest day, me ROTC pa kc kasi..) Imagine the load of work that is needed to be finished in about a span of week??? Don’t forget the hectic schedules you have evey class recitations and the sleepless nights you’ve experienced before examinations and term tests. It’s not only the subjects that threaten or jeopardize the students,but also the people involved inside every class scenarios. Your nutty professors that you wish you’d never attended a lecture with. Your parasitic classmates (I mean it!!! hahahaha) who tend to borrow everything from you without any initiating action of returning it. Your insistent seatmate (I mean it ulit.. hahahaha) who taps at your back every quiz to ask for answers, and your irrate classmate who tends to bully you after refusing to join them in a DOTA session with some of your friends…
These realities of college life are glaring proofs of how difficult life can be in college. But it does not mean that life in college is always downsided, students also experience the fun, adventure, bliss and the eccentricity of it. Basta they know how to manage their tight time and how to have fun amidst the stress and the burden of it. After all “College life is one heck of a ride!!!” so enjoy every ride of it till it lasts…

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).


If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
