Trip to Bansalan

Our trip to Bansalan was a very memorable experience for me. A good way also to forget the very bad day I had last December 6, 2007.

It was actually my second time to visit the place. The first, we just stayed for a couple of hours to visit a nun celebrating her birthday back then when I was still working in the RVM Provincial House. Now the most recent one, we stayed for 2 days and 2 nights at Mona's House to celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception.


ANG MGA LAAGAN: May, Me and Asvi

Christmas Wishes

December is the month we've all been waiting for. Not to mention the bonuses, the 13th month pay, the gifts, the vacation and others...

As for me, I am hoping and wishing that I will finally have these things this Christmas:

computer
1. Computer - every IT student should have this. It has been almost 4 years where I am going to internet cafe's and to my friends and classmates' houses just to use their computer. And i tell you, its really really hard especially these days.

A bit frustrated

I am a bit frustrated for the results of the PSITS sportsfest for our department. We lose in the different sports events and i think it was already 95%. It was an elimination/knock-out system so basically if you lose, you will never have the chance to win.

I was so determined to win because (hopefully) it will be my last semester in College. I have been playing for Track and Field, Basketball and Volleyball for a couple of years already in the ITE Department and we have never brought any "gold" for Volleyball. We had it almost (1st runner-up) during Intramurals 2006 .

Mona's Treat

Last Friday, we had a belated birthday celebration of Mona. We just went to Merevillas together with some of Mona's friends. It was really, really fun! It has been a couple of months since we had this kind of party at the beach. The food and alcoholic drinks were abundant (Case, case pa)! Wahahahhaha...palaigit! With different classifications of alcohol pa! Grabe talaga ang party na iyon but I never plan to get drunk because two days before that i don't have enough sleep already.

Samson by Regina Spektor

From the very first time i saw her music video "Fidelity" on MYX I already admire her. I must say she's the artist that amazes me most. Perfect for my taste of music. Her songs are soothing and she has that unique and very beautiful voice. Just like the music video below, Samson.


Love to listen that you just wanna play it over and over again! Agree?

Excited for PSITS 2007

PSITS
I am still excited eventhough i am not the contestant for the Programming nor to the Quiz Bowl Competition for this coming Philippine Society of Information Technology Students XI (Nov.30-Dec.8,2007) .

Though not a participant for the academic events I will still be joining two other events which are Volleyball for Women and MTV Spoof. I hope that this time around we will bring home the bacon because the performance of our school last year was not that good. I am also happy that they have required the participants/players to have a photocopy of the school id because as what I have observed there were students who participated in the different events who are not really from the IT department or any.

GirlOpinion gave me this kind of award, the "You're an Amazing Blogger". Im so happy that i have received it and i just hope she also wrote the reason why. Hehhehehehe....

She is amazing because she always inspire me. She has everything yet she still remains to be humble.

PERFECT by Judith McNaught

Perfect, Judith McNaughtPerfect is the first English novel i have read.

I remember after a meeting Joy, Dacky and I went to Jo's to have our dinner and while we were waiting for our food to be served Dacky was sharing to us its story....and it was just so interesting that was why I was convince to why not read it albeit it was a nosebleed to me.


Joy finished reading the novel for just 3 days and me? It took me 6 months. Yeah, its true! I returned the book just this week. Its funny but it was actually an accomplishment to me because imagine, I've finish reading a book with that thick! First time azz in... The first few chapters of the book i read it while i had my OJT in Link2Support every idle time, when we don't have calls especially during sleeping time of our clients.

I just hope and pray we will all graduate and no one will be left behind.

keep the faith

It was one of my mushy nights when i received this SMS from an anonymous texter.

Let me share this beautiful text: I asked God, "how do i get the best out of life?" God answered: "Face your past without regret, handle your present with confidence, prepared for the future without fear. " Then He added: "Keep the faith and drop the fear. Don't believe your doubts and never doubt your beliefs. Life is wonderful if you know how to live". God knows, God sees and God bless you.

It was an answer to the worries of my heart. Another sign?

bITEch

bITEch is the Official Publication of the Information Technology Education Program of UIC. Just had its first release(September 2007) and i'm happy to be part of the Editorial Board. Hehehehe...I wrote two articles for the September 2007 issue. The first one was the Computer Literacy Training and the OJT Experience. A good start to my blossoming writing career. Charus! Borrowed the blossoming term of Raine. Hehehehehe...

bITEch, ITE Official Publication
THE EDITORIAL BOARD:


Editor In Chief: Mary Grace Ignacio
Associate Editor: Katherine Dacanay
Managing Editor: Alma Ritchel Merin
News Editor: Pink Cabero
Feature Editor: Catherine Remolleno
Literary Editor: Cherry Joy Abe



something to ponder

Just want to share this inspiring text message sent to me by Ivan:

"It is better to cry than to be angry because anger hurts others while tears flow silently through the soul and cleanses the heart" - Pope John Paul II


I believe because there was a time in my life that I get angry to a certain person and it intensifies because I put more negative energies. It was bad because I just don't like carrying that hatred in my heart. Now, I think I can manage because I just vent out my emotions through crying than hurting others by being angry. Through crying I was able to realize and forgive. :)

Proposal Title Defense: A Success!

At last! I am a bit relieved because our proposed title, "A Blood Bank Center Information System with SMS based Inquiries" has been approved. With a bonus, our group was among those who made it to the top with a very slight differences with regards to the score.

Our hearts were really jumping with joy especially Leiz and I upon hearing one of the panelists comments, "You have a very good docu". Also, my commendable presentation (although i talk so fast). It was such a rewarding remark considering that we had a lot of sleepless night and even that day, the two of us didn't sleep just to have some finishing touches with our docu. I also had to prepare my slides for the presentation in the morning. Cramming thing, ayt? Yeah...good thing, I was still able to make it. Somehow, I could attribute this as my special skill. Char!

I'm Joining the Mindanao Bloggers Summit

Mindanao Bloggers SummitI first read the Mindanao Bloggers Summit from the blog of my teacher.


I find it very interesting to join because I will get the chance to meet my fellow Mindanao Bloggers. Aside from that, I know I will learn so many things from the summit. The last time there was a gathering for Davao bloggers which was held in Netfront Internet Cafe, I was not able to join. Hopefully, this time around I could really go.

My Retreat Experience (Trip to Digos)

It was actually my first time to experience a retreat.

rosary, St. Benedict's Retreat House, Digos CityI remember when I was still an elementary student I used to go to Betania Retreat House (now UIC Bajada) everytime there is a retreat because i would help my mother prepare the room of the retreatants, go to the kitchen and help the cook and lastly wash the dishes. I am always very happy every time I looked at the bulletin board when it will be fully book because i know for certain that sumptuous food are always prepared and we could bring home some food also. At a young age I also wonder what was happening in the sessions of the retreatants because most of the time i could see them crying.

ITE ACQUAINTANCE PARTY '07

The event happened last June 28, 2007 and Im sorry for posting this late. I was a bit busy that's why my blog is no longer updated.

Anywayz, as Araphoenix
mentioned in her blog the ITE Acquaintance Party '07 was really a success. It would not be possible without the excellent preparations of the ITE Program officers spearheaded by Araphoenix herself.

As I've mentioned in my last post, I consider the event as the happiest Acquaintance Party I ever had in UIC. Everything was well set. From the venue, the sound system, the presentors, the Mr. and Ms. ITE contest, the games azz in everything talaga. Although the program started one hour late we were still able to manage it to the exact time it should end.

What's up?

Hi, its been ages nba? Hindi pa naman.

What's up?

Oh, my life has been very busy the moment I enter the life as a senior student.

Wow! Ang sarap talaga ng feeling! Nakikinita ko na ang mangyayari...I am marching and my mother is crying while handing to her my diploma. Kasi naman, sa hindi nakakaalam at hindi pa nakakasubaybay ng life story ko MAGNA-NINE years na ako sa College (seems like MAGNA CUM LAUDE bah?). I was 2 years in Accountancy, 1 and a half year in Medical Technology, and in my 4rth year in Information Technology (back to 1 due to my scholarship). I just counted the 1 and a half year where i stopped and worked as a full time tutor. So, getch nyo na talaga age ko? Oks lang, batang-bata nman sa personal diba? Nafeel niyo ba kung gaano kasaya at kafulfilling iyon? (Hinggang malalim...) At last!

Make Money Online from Money4Blogs

Last May 31, 2007 I received the money that I have long been waiting for from Money4blogs and it was worth 175 dollars.

It made me sad before when I realized that I could not receive the money because I don't have a Paypal account. Besides, Paypal is not fully available here in the Philippines and Money4Blogs already stop sending money through Xoom. But good thing, there are always this wonderful people around me who extended their hand so that I could receive the money. They are Sir Dennis and Ann. Thank you again guys! I also thank April for receiving the money in behalf of me.

Make Money from Blog to Profit

Last May 24 I received my money from Blog to Profit

Blog to ProfitIt was actually my third time to receive money from them. The steps were just very easy and in less than a week you will receive your money. They can send it through your Bank Account, PayPal or through Western Union. I chose the latter because I don't have PayPal account yet.

I already received P3,400 from them with the following breakdowns: P700, P2100 and P600. They will send you certain links with a corresponding title and all you got to do is do some entry about it/them.

Happy to be a Link2Support CSR

Link2Support logoWhen the result was given last Friday, I couldn't believe that I passed. I was silent for a couple of minutes trying to put into my realization that it was really true, that I make it! My heart was jumping with so much joy and at the back of my mind was the thought saying, "Prayers can really move mountain" and I almost cry.

I am just so thankful for those wonderful people who prayed for me. They are my mother and the RVM sisters who even celebrated the Holy Eucharist with the intention just for me during our call simulation day.

I was no longer expecting to tell you honestly although I did try my best.

What's bugging me?

I don't know how will I handle this thing that is bugging in my mind.

We just finished the 1st week of training for communication skills in the call center company where I am having my OJT. The training was tough because they wanted us to have that American Accent and i feel that among the OJT's I was the worst. I know the field is never mine besides I am not a communication arts student, I am an IT student but i really like the challenge. I am very eager to develop my communication skills.


My accent is not that good. I commit mistakes and I am a bit conscious reciting infront of my classmates. I don't know why this thing is happening. In school, I am not really this kind of person because I am full of confidence but in our training room I am so quiet and shy. I don't know how will I overcome this kind of intimidation and insecurity that I am feeling. Until now that the training for technical skills have already started I still feel that i might fail in the call simulation.

What's more bugging me is the fact that this OJT of ours is 3 units and I think it should be graded. I worry about my scholarship because I might get a low grade that would result me to be out from the privilege that I am into. The head of the training department told us that in every call that we have our customer will be given a sort of surveys where they can rate the agent and if they gave us 57 that will be our grade. Gosshhh....I plan to quit but I also want to earn. I need money but I am quite shy if I will still look for other company.

I really don't know what to do. Please help me. Help me Lord.

A Way Back Into Love

mag-fourth year najud ko!

At last, the semester is over!

Nabreak ko narin ang sinasabi nilang may curse ako. It is because with my previous two courses (Accountancy and Medtech) i only reached the second year.

It feels good to be reaching this far because I have been through a lot of down and down.
***When we had our firing line presentation for the parents recognition and awarding I can't describe what I was feeling especially reading my line as a mother. The message that we shared was all about the sacrifices of every parent to their children. I felt so guilty because I know, at my age i should be a professional already.
Pero hindi pa huli ang lahat, babawi talaga ako sa inyo.

I am up to the challenges that are waiting as we reach our senior year. I am positive that i can do it at gagraduate na rin ako. Hopefully with flying colors.

Good luck sa ating lahat!

sleep problems, bad dreams

The second semester is almost over but I tell you, every time it is coming to an end it always gives pressures to students because of the left and right requirements given to us by our dear teachers.

Somebody even said to me, why that strategy? Why do they always gave it on finals? Well, even if they will give it ahead of time it is useless because an ordinary student is fond of procrastinating. Fond of doing things a night before the deadlines and i admit i am one of them but not all the times because i also prepare, paminsan-minsan nga lang when i am not attacked by my laziness.

So Happy!

11 Reasons to explain my title:

1. I was able to regain my status here in Blogger that showed i have been blogging since October 2005. Remember I deleted my 5 blogs and started from scratch because of my Katangahan at Maling Akala dated September 2006? Although profile has been changed what is important is the status. I can now transfer my entries also.

2. The article we have submitted to TCI (our school paper) was accepted and it was already published. I've got an ample copies of the school paper as a remembrance. It was my first because when i was in high school we never had this. I never thought it will be accepted because i don't have any formal trainings or have not been to any seminars in writing.

3. The ITE Department has planned to have our own magazine. We already have the editorial's board and i was elected as the Managing Editor. It makes my career as a frustrated writer become brighter. Too many articles are in due but its okay. I used to hate English before but now I'm lovin' it.

I'm back!

Whew! Nearly a month since my last post. I am still here.

I've been sick and paranoid thinking that the illnesses that I have maybe the effect when I was bitten by the dog
. I was absent for a couple of days during the 1st week of the class. After a week, I was absent again for more than 7 days due to that illnesses.

I was suffering from a multiple health problems such as on and off fever, severe headache, colds, tonsilittis, severe joint and muscle pain, nausea and vomiting. I was thinking that I may become a dog because of those illnesses. That they were the manifestations that I was transforming into an another creature. What a weird thought?

Now, I am quite okay. I was welcomed with so much love and concern. Thank you guys, especially to those who texted me. I appreciate it a lot.
