Life's like that??!!

I’m tired. That’s all I can say. School has been extremely exhausting for both the body and the brain. Tonight, I have to finish the ff: Eng Journ News Journal, Eng Journ SW and Soc Sci SW. Then, study for: Bio Long Test and Eng Journ Quiz.

I guess 2nd year isn’t hard enough. There still has to be 3rd yr. I now realize that a tired brain is worse than a tired body. This year, I’ve been going home stressed. I go home having no energy whatsoever to do anything at all. But I don’t have a choice. So the only thing I can say is: May God bless us all and the people who set the fumigation date on Friday. I seriously need a break.

Coach Carter

I can't believe how great this movie is. I'm not sure if it's still being shown in cinemas. But if still is, go watch it if you haven't. If it isn't anymore, wait for the release of the video. buy, borrow or whatever. You just have to watch it. It's now my favorite movie of all time. I cried so much while watching it. haha. here's my take on it:

The movie's strength is it's emotional impact on the audience. The movie doesn't exactly have the best actors but it doesn't matter because the story is enough to make the movie great. If you come to think of it, this is a movie based on real people's lives. You don't need people who can cry a river when prompted by the director in every sad situation. You just need people who can relate to human emotion and basically just know how it is to be human. there are quite a number of important characters and most of them are black so you might get a bit mixed up as to who's who. but later on in the movie, everything will be clear enough for you. the movie's pretty long but for a good movie, i don't mind. The background music will all be pretty much raps but don't worry the noise doesn't cover or get mixed up with the sounds of the voices. But overall, nothing else will matter because u get a lot of insight after watching this film.

The movie tells us that we shouldn't let events or even our current state dictate what we can be or will be. We can always aim for better lives. And as long as we try, whether we win or fail in the eyes of others, it doesn't matter because as Coach Carter said, "you have reached the ever elusive victory from within."

So here's my favorite line(more of paragraph) in the movie:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. Our playing small does not serve the world. There is no light in shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us. It's in everyone. And as we shine, we unconciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated, our presence automatically liberates others." **clap*** Sorry if there might be a few wrong words in that but that's the main idea.

a little bit of basketball

i finally started watching nba. it's so much fun when it's the finals already because the games are so seldom. but since classes started, i haven't watched much tv. i mean who would have time for tv. 3rd yr is so stressful. I don't get as much homework, i get more breaks but i just feel so tired when i get home. maybe it's because of the brain work required this year.

going back to what i should be talking about in this entry, here it goes:


Mark Cardona is PBL Unity Cup 2005’s Most Valuable Player. A great achievement before he goes to the pro’s. The people who were congratulating him kept mentioning ngayon naging MVP ka na. They’re probably pertaining to UAAP 67 where he almost had it but lost to Arwind Santos in the race. Well, this time he defeated Santos(Unity Cup 2004’s & UAAP 67’s MVP) and Jondan Salvador(last PBL Open Championship’s MVP) and Anthony Washington(mwahaha. Hmmm… Now, who is going to be the PBA draft top pick?)


This is a much anticipated game. I can't imagine any collegiate basketball fan not going nuts over the 2 games to be held at this showdown. It's a fundraiser for both schools' athletics departments, LSGH Night School & The Philippine Red Cross. The players will be former Archers & Eagles from the earliest days of the 2 schools' rivalry. It's going to be at the Araneta Coliseum. But if you don't have the money for this, the ever so amazing Studio 23 is going to televise it. Woohoo!!! I love ABS-CBN Sports!!! Telecast will start at 1.

a new school year ahead

Yesterday, re-orientation ng 07 sa school. It was very short because we didn’t follow the schedule. I saw the Jasmin people who I will really, really, really miss. Sumali pala si Shower sa TKO nung Wednesday. Sayang! Di ko napanood. Mga Be magparamdam na kayo. 19 pa lang ang nakalista. Kulang pa ng probably around 9-11.

Reaction ko sa teachers & sked ng Be:
1.Masaya kasi teacher namin si Ma’am Jams. Woohoo!!!
2.The rest of the teachers, k lng. May 1 lang akong di gusto kasi mas gusto ko yung 1 pang teacher in that subject pero ano naman magagawa ko. Maybe magaling din naman ung teacher namin.
3.Tapos may quiz na kaagad sa Math on Monday. 1st subject pa naman namin. Kailangan ko na tuloy mag-aral.
4.Ang aga ng uwi naming in some days. Mwahaha…
5.Ang luwag ng schedule namin. Maninibago sigurado kami kasi sanay na kami na walang butas sa schedule.
6.Maganda schedule ng PE namin kaya masaya. I have to work on my swimming pa naman.
7.The schedule of Beryllium’s(I haven’t seen the other sections’) main purpose is to remove any fat in the bodies of the students in the class. Puro akyat, baba at lipat ng building.
8.And my adviser is a Chem teacher which is good. Last year Ma’am Cardenas, who was teaching the lone 2 unit subject in 2nd yr, was my adviser. Ngayon adviser ko 2 unit subject ulit ang tinuturo. Kaya mas madaling magpatulong & magconsult.

We were also able to talk to Sir Martz! nice! I also bought a pair of earrings from Maisie. They’re pretty.

Tas may dilemma ako. I don’t know which elective to take. Sabi pwede naman daw 2 so maybe I’ll take 2 kasi I’m interested in 5. The 5 electives are
(1)Eng Journ-I don't think I’m a very talented writer but I love doing it so I think I’ll enjoy this one. Plus I want to be part of the Science Scho next year.
(2)Lab Tech-I think people who take this one will have an advantage in Bio & STR. I also like lab activities like the stuff we did nung 3rd-4th qtr last yr sa bio. And it will also be very useful in our future careers(science course na talaga ako)
(3)Robotics-Duh! Who wouldn’t be interested? I think Pisay is the only school that offers this & masaya talagang matuto nito.
(4)Food Science-It’s one field of Science which is very appealing to me at the moment. I’m consideringstudying a course related to this kaya gusto ko. (don’t think this is an achievement kasi sobrang daming course na kino-consider ko)
(5)Pop Law-I’ve always been interested. I wanted to be a lawyer before entering Pisay. Since it is most likely that this doesn’t push through, at least may konti akong malalaman.

What elective/s do you think I should take? Help!!!

Back to the orientation…. May sobrang nakakainis today.

Meron akong nalaman kanina na nagpafeel guilty sakin. I mean wala akong ginawang masama pero may mga bagay na hindi ko ginawa. Well, la na ko magagawa dun. May God bless all of us na lang.

Kaya ngayon hindi masyado maganda pakiramdam ko. And the fact that it’s time to go back to the tons of work load doesn’t help. I desperately need to attend a YFC meeting. Hihi. Pangpagaan ng feeling e. I can’t believe I didn’t become active much earlier. (Wait! Active na ba ko?!) Nauna pa ko maging active sa Pisay. Btw, good luck pala sa camp this weekend. I’m so sad I couldn’t go(especially since ung venue nila ngayon ang venue ng camp ko & before the 1st day of classes din yung camp ko noon (“,)) kasi I’m still not prepared for the official start of school. God bless!!!
