TC departments unwind thru sports, games Fun was all over TC these past few weeks because of the different departments of the University that took the time to enjoy games and

sports and to set aside their notes and books for three days. Faculty, staff and students of the Computer Engineering (ComE) department held their annual sports fest last February 2-4 2012, spearheaded by the ComE Council. A week after, the Electronics and Communications Engineering department hit the soccer field and basketball court to show their skills in those areas. An acoustic night also discovered their singing talents. Meanwhile, the Physics department made use of their thinking skills as they carried out their very own Quantum Race and many other activities on Saturday, February 11, 2012. IJGN M| DESOACAMENOJ

arpaulins of the Red, the Yellow and the Pink; lists of credentials that certify and endorse student leadership—We see them. We form impressions. In another Supreme Student Council (SSC) election, we are about to choose a new line of leaders who will represent the Carolinian studentry for service, welfare, and perhaps inspiration. But your student publication, The Carolinian, believes that the leader we want to entrust our votes with is the one we know by heart and who is worth beyond the parade of documented achievements. The Carolinian thus believes that personality is sexier.

In a one-on-one interview, we asked the three SSC presidential candidates a series of questions that challenges their standpoints, brings out some of their true colors, and even draws out the unexpected in them. Three different individuals from three different parties. Three different personalities but only one deciding audience. Who will be the next SSC president? The answer is in your hands, Carolinians!

MICHAEL BENEDICT P. YAUNA (STAND) Accountancy student Michael Benedict, 21, takes things at face value. A member of the Nocturnal Society, he likes to read and considers himself a movie buff. He isn't picky about foods, well, except for spicy ones, he says. He likes the color blue. This guy is easy-go-lucky, occasionally boozes for fun, and is articulate in expressing anything in his mind. rooms, your payment for the teachers. Why are there many other surplus? We plan to look into it, to delve and answer any questions about it.

What is your greatest achievement as a leader? Honestly, if you talk about [in] college, I haven‘t got so much experience, so to speak. Pero kung highschool man lang, yes, I got the position sa region, sa division. But the thing that I am really proud of ang pag-president g‘yud sa high school level nga supreme student government [in] New Ormoc City National High School, Leyte. It‘s because your constituents are right there. You could relate to them. You get to know them. Our school is relatively big [at] around three thousand students; but we were able to reach out to them. No matter how highschool-ish the projects were, the sentiments sufficed that we did something to them, and we know about that. What is your number 1 aim in your platforms? There are many things in our platform pero … ang No. 1 gyud na program is the one that is achievable, the one that is realistic, and this is the assessment of our tuition fees. We want to know where our tuition fees go. We want to have a justification of all these breakdowns. Tapos, we want to know if these fees are really existent. [We want to know] how we could avail the dental fee; how you could justify na you charge us the extra room fees, when in fact, a tuition fee by definition according to a CHED memorandum already includes your payment for electricity, your payment for the

What does the word ‗success‘ mean to you? Success is not about how many people see you achieve… your own satisfaction… how loud applause you hear. Success is about doing something genuine that could touch the life of people around you. It‘s not as superficial as having a certificate for it.. [or] as showing that you‘ve done this. It‘s something that is more—not existential—relevant to the being of a person. Sometimes, success can be shallow, but I like to think nga successes in life are not just about putting a smile on your face and waving your hand. How do you deal with stress? I read manga [like] Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tale… Unya, how pa?... I‘m not really bureaucratic nga everything has a process. I‘m not tedious with those things. Anything goes… Usually, I go out for a drink with friends, hang out with friends. What is your greatest failure in life? Having to screw up the opportunity I had [way] back in UP Diliman. I‘m a transferee from UP Diliman.... The thing about it man g‘yud na I got it all good back there with my parents trusting me. Tapos, you make bad choices. I was a promdi, a conscripted promdi in metropolitan Manila… I know I could have done it. I know I could achieve something there. But at the same time it was a success… a turning point kay it‘s like either I pick myself up and stand for what I believe in or [I] lay down on the ground and be trampled on. I stood up. I started from square one here in San Carlos, and it‘s the best so far. It‘s the best decision I made. What is your most embarrassing moment? I slipped on the stairs of Weesam [Express] and made a funny face, and I said sorry… Their stairs are really steep. What can‘t you live without? I can‘t live without having to have a con-

versation… a meaningful conversation… something to discuss with somebody. Kailangan nga murag at least man lang once a week naay jut na ‗Oi! Reality is nga stuff is not about school lang, stuff is not about your latest hang out session. Something relevant, something about what‘s happening. Conversations.‘

have evolved from something to be a chicken, di ba? They didn‘t say na ―I will evolve so I will turn myself into an egg.‖

What are your insecurities in life? My batchmates way back in high school nagsige na sila‘g graduate… Somehow kanang I feel regret, I feel bad for myself nga ma-insecure g‘yud ko. I graduated Valedictorian… same with my failure, I could have done it.

Which would you choose and why? Simple or Sophisticated? Simple, because I like to think things simple. Sophistication somehow comes with the complexity that would only make you enamored about the superficial parts of things. Simple… you truly get to see what the thing is.

What is the title of the first song in your playlist? Coldplay – Fix You On a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 as the highest, how happy are you? It‘s an 8… because I know there are more things that I could be happy about tomorrow. If you were written about in a newspaper, what would the headline say? Yauna, A Tycoon, Gave His Wealth (Tycoon Yauna Gives Wealth) If you are marketer in Alaska, how would you convince an Eskimo to buy a refrigerator? It‘s global warming. Your snow is about to melt. Tell us one of your guilty pleasures. It‘s reading a good book and having to cry about something not romantic. (He then shared his fascination to the movie ‗Schindler‘s List‘ and the novel ‗The Kite Runner‘) What is the sexiest part of your body? I have to say my shoulders, kay it‘s what people see… It‘s what people notice. Which came first: the chicken or the egg? Probably, the chicken…. Creationism. If you have creationism, animals spring out from something. They don‘t come out as eggs… as pupae. If you have Darwin‘s Theory of Evolution, one organism might

Throw us a pick up line. ―Miss, puwede mangutana og directions? (Bakit?) Gusto ko kase malaman ang direksyon patungo sa puso mo.‖

Rich or Famous? I‘d rather be rich… Sadly, money makes the world go round, but there are always avenues to lease it right. Beauty or Intelligence? Intelligence. [Like a] beauty pageant answer, what is beauty when the brain is empty. Something more serious, [I choose] intelligence, because when you have intelligence and have the passion for it, you could have it materialized… Like they said, intelligence is multifaceted… Beauty fades. Intelligence prospers. What are you more afraid of: failing in your major subject or losing in the elections? Failing in my major subject as being an accountancy student… while failing in the exams is not really an option in CEL2 (a qualifying exam for BSA students)… It‘s a tiresome process. I failed na. I transferred na. I‘d going to take it again pa. In 30 minutes, you: meet up a couple of friends, maybe watch the SBE pageant, have some fun and afterwards, go with STAND people. In 10 years, you: would have established [myself] to be not really filthy rich, would have my own family still staying in the Philippines, and would have established my own business.


STEPHEN L. FLORES (TINGOG) Applied Physics student Stephen, 19, likes to offer a helping hand. Another nocturnal lad, he likes to confine himself to silence and peace where he usually contemplates. When people ask him why he has chosen his course, he would answer that for him, Physics is the easiest channel to make the world better. He is fond of reading, but he does not consider himself a bookworm. By the way, he likes the color blue. What is your greatest achievement as a leader? For me, the best project I did as a leader was with the Philippine Junior Jaycees. At the beginning of this school year, we did what we call the packages from the united student organizations of USC… We collected school supplies from the students, from the Carolinians and gave them to over 400 students… sa elementary and prep[atory] sa Budlaan Integrated School. Murag, for me, it was the best thing I was able to do because not only I was able to gather the Carolinians nga mutabang, I was able to help the children. For me, that [is] what guides me. Education. I‘m always been an advocate of education. What is your number 1 aim in your platforms? Our platforms are of… all them are really catered for the students. If I have to choose No. 1, it would have to be the Carolinian Summit... It‘s like a gathering of all the Carolinians, all interested Carolinians. It‘s not only a teambuilding activity, a seminar, but also an open forum with the USC administration that we will able to let them know what we think, what we feel [in our residence in the university]… the changes we want in the university… it‘s a very good avenue not only for the students to meet other Carolinians… to open the communication line among the students and the administration… it sums all up: involvement, student assistance, development and empowerment. What does the word ‗success‘ mean to you? General success is being able to lift up yourself and not leaving others behind. How do you deal with stress? I watch movies. I listen to music. I eat, I eat and I eat.

What is your greatest failure in life? My greatest failure? Hmmm… Getting a [grade of] 73 in Geometry [in my second year high school]… It was my fault. I didn‘t pass my project. After that, I was like, ‗Where am I going?‘ What is your most embarrassing moment? Any time when I‘m asked in class and I can‘t answer… I think, it‘s a self-motivated frustration. I just can‘t leave a question behind. What can‘t you live without? My phone is very important. What are your insecurities in life? I‘m not rich enough to help. Actually, I‘m not rich. What I notice is that most leaders are rich… they‘re able to help, they‘re able to not only spare their time, murag, they‘re rich enough to have spare time. [And] I‘m not. I have scholarship to maintain, grades. What is the title of the first song in your playlist? Natasha Bedingfield – Unwritten On a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 as the highest, how happy are you? 8… If you were written about in a newspaper, what would the headline say? It‘s ambitious, but [it would be] The First Filipino Nobel Prize Winner for Physics… [it‘s what] most people from the sciences are dreaming of. If you are marketer in Alaska, how would you convince an Eskimo to buy a refrigerator? Hmmm… How do I convince them? It‘s already cold there… The refrigerator is a

cleaner way of keeping things… instead of putting them just inside the igloo… it‘s a more convenient way, cleaner way for his food, [and] things that are perishable. Tell us one of your guilty pleasures. Sleeping in class… even not attending classes, it‘s a guilty pleasure [for me]. Most of the time if I do not attend classes…I‘m a class behind the subject, the things that are being discussed… I‘m not naning, that‘s what I can tell you… Since elementary, I was told not to skip classes… Well, it may sound cliché but my parents have always told me that education is the only thing they can give me. And I value it too much, because we are not rich. What is the sexiest part of your body? I don‘t know, maybe my eyes. Which came first: the chicken or the egg? I believe it‘s the chicken… I have believed in the Theory of Evolution… The way they talk about acquiring and losing a part… of Charles Darwin‘s theory… The chicken may have evolved from some other species. Throw us a pick up line. Hindi tayo tao. Hindi rin tayo hayop. Bagay tayo, bagay na bagay. Which would you choose and why? Simple or Sophisticated? Simple. That‘s me. I‘m simple. Rich or Famous? Can I have both? (No.) Rich… Although money can‘t buy you happiness, money can certainly help other people. Beauty or Intelligence? Intelligence… You can go anywhere when you‘re intelligent… Even if you‘re discrimi-

nated because you‘re not beautiful or pretty, [you can] tell people what you think and still people will be amazed of your intelligence. It‘s actually the same effect with beauty, only that intelligence… people, I believe, will look up more to you. That‘s how society judges. What are you more afraid of: failing in your major subject or losing in the elections? Failing in my major subject… because I‘m a scholar… Weighing the two things, if I fail the election, I will be failing myself, only or maybe the people who believe [in] me. But if I fail in my major subject, I will be failing my life. And if I fail in my life, I cannot continue to be a leader… losing the elections, I can still continue to be a leader… I can still help in other ways. In 30 minutes, you: check my computer and make my project due tomorrow. In 10 years, you: going to be a PhD scientist and [to be a] medical doctor… [to] make the world a better place for everybody to live in.

NIÑO PAOLO T. ONGLUICO (SPP) Management Accounting student Niño Paolo, 20, is a native of Surigao, who far from the course he's currently taking up likes microbiology. He is active at night, thus sleeps late. He likes to write and has his own personal blog. Bias aside, he loves the color red; he thinks, maybe because he's Chinese. His optimism keeps him over the pedestal of no surrender for he believes every cloud has a silver lining. probably for me [is] recovering something from a deep fall. How do you deal with stress? Eventhough I‘ve been struggling in organizations in the past three years, I just talk to someone and tell them my problems… I asked advices from other people, but I also have this stress ball.

What is your greatest achievement as a leader? Well, back in high school, pag-4th year, I was sent to the US to represent the whole country… American Society for Microbiology, murag it‘s a science project thing and I was the team leader… We were the only student delegates from the Philippines… Together with us were UP professors, Ateneo professors, and we were the only students. And it was an honor… What is your number 1 aim in your platforms? We like to… break the students‘ apathy. I mean, as you can see, Carolinians are not that active anymore in the SSC elections… so we can‘t really say that everyone is represented… [the total number of voting turn outs] didn‘t even reach 50%... It‘s in line with empowerment… [by] making them active players in the society, especially in the university. What does the word ‗success‘ mean to you? Well, this is funny since this is my third time running sa SSC. First time I ran, I lost… Second time, I won. So, success

What is your greatest failure in life? I failed the comprehensive examination sa Accountancy. After second year, we have this CEL [to take up]… If you pass it, you can continue as an accountancy student. If you fail it, you have to shift to Management Accounting. Probably, that was the biggest failure in my life, since I studied and prepared for three weeks before the examination… But yeah, I finally recovered. What is your most embarrassing moment? Daghan man g‘yud funny stuffs. It happens everyday… Hmmm… I mixed up names… I know this person and called him in another name… The funny thing was his face kay mu-question mark, something like that. What can‘t you live without? Friends, family and God… Material? As of now, cellular phones and laptop… and internet connection. Since it‘s the way I communicate with my family and friends. What are your insecurities in life? I got insecure when someone talks better than me… I have been a speaker ever since [in my] elementary and high school [years]. I‘m more of the talking dude… I‘m not really that insecure… murag maamaze pud ko sa other people who speak very well… I become a fan of them… [I‘m] not [in] surpassing them, [but] at least reach their level.

What is the title of the first song in your playlist? Adele – Set Fire to the Rain On a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 as the highest, how happy are you? 9… I consider myself an optimistic person. If you were written about in a newspaper, what would the headline say? Now that‘s hard… College Kid Discovers a Cure for Cancer… It‘s very far from the course I am taking Accounting, but the microbiology stuff in the US… I was inspired. If you are marketer in Alaska, how would you convince an Eskimo to buy a refrigerator? Buy my refrigerator since your fish will spoil… I know there‘s ice, but come on, it‘s a refrigerator.

religion debate about how the world began. But [what] I think [is] they coincide. Di ba, when God set the first day, mura s‘ya pareho sa Big Bang Theory. So what if one day before wasn‘t 24 hours… [but instead] a thousand years… I consider both [science and religion] important. Throw us a pick up line/knock2x joke. Knock knock. (Who‘s there?) Ang English sa bato kay stones. (Ang English sa bato kay stones, who?) (Charice – Pyramid) Stones, ang English sa bato kay stones. Which would you choose and why? Simple or Sophisticated? I go for simple. I know this sounds cliché but simplicity is beauty, period. Rich or Famous? In this century, you need to be practical. I go for rich… [If you‘re famous], sometimes imong star, mawala ra na… You could use fame to be remembered, but in money, you can help others.

Tell us one of your guilty pleasures. If I‘m down and I feel sad, I shop… [If I don‘t have money], I eat a lot… [or] go out with friends… I sing in the shower, is that [considered] guilty? I sing a lot in the shower, I do my concert [there]… something melancholic.

Beauty or Intelligence? Intelligence… Before I look at someone, maybe ma-attract kay tungod sa looks, but when you hear them talk, maka-turn off man, di ba?

What is the sexiest part of your body? My hands… I don‘t know how people see my hands… I don‘t know how you say it in English, kandila-on… I have girly hands, kaning gamay diri.

What are you more afraid of: failing in your major subject or losing in the elections? Failing in my major subject… Your academic stuff or your scholastic aptitude, everything [you learn] in school is important in the outside world.

Which came first: the chicken or the egg? Well, if we based in the Bible, [I say] the chicken… Because God created all the animals and the chicken is obviously an animal. There, they laid eggs… and more chicks and more chicken. Yey! … I do believe in evolution. I have this theory… People from science and people from

In 30 minutes, you: today‘s our prom in Accounting, I‘ll go somewhere and have my haircut [done]. In 10 years, you: corporate lawyer… I want to be a CPA and after that, [I‘m gonna] pursue Law.

quake By Marla Arielle B. So

ome men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.‖- Alfred Pennyworth, The Dark Knight Vehicles running the red lights; the police not even bothering to stop them… Terrified citizens running hand in hand across crowded streets… Religious people bringing out the holy paraphernalia… These are scenes straight out of an apocalypse film. However, on February 6, 2012, this event was triggered by the waves experienced in the whole island of Cebu, a few hours after a 6.9-magnitude earthquake rocked parts of Central Visayas, leaving death and destruction in its wake. No, there weren‘t any massive tsunamis. If there were, the general dryness of the vicinity and the status of your journalists would be questionable, to say the least. The waves referred to here are the waves of panic and hysteria which washed over the majority of Cebuanos. This was due to a report about a rise in sea levels — really only about a meter high — being misinterpreted as a tsunami alert.

―Let us pray na matuloy ang tsunami para maraming Bisaya ang mamatay, para mabawasan ang baduy sa Pilipinas.‖ It probably didn‘t help that some guys with megaphones thought it wise to tour around Cebu on motorcycles and yell at people about Colon, Pasil or whatever being underwater. It is a testament to the Filipino spirit that people were able to just laugh it off and get on with their lives, pride jackhammered but still intact. It‘s more fun in the Philippines, but this was not one of Cebu‘s finest moments… Yet someone, somewhere, is having a whole different kind of laugh. If the opening quote and the introduction weren‘t enough foreshadowing, let‘s go straight to the point: Ahcee Flores. Anyone with internet connection should know who Flores is. Infamous for posting hateful comments about people from the Visayan region on a Yahoo! News article about the quake, Ahcee Flores is an example of what we of the internet persuasion call a troll: someone who posts inflammatory messages in an online community, looking to annoy or anger other users. The troll is a bad product of the internet age, the playground bully who hides behind computer screens. Those who haven‘t been exposed to the troll phenomenon have a different view of things, and

use just as colourful words to describe Ahcee Flores. Let‘s just say that a peek at the comments bar is a good lesson on how to properly swear in Cebuano. Communities dedicated to hating Ahcee Flores have been popping up in various social networking sites. The usual animosity between northern and southern Filipinos has worsened, with the Visayan people taking the comments as the model of the northerners‘ opinion. What‘s worse is that ‗hackers‘ have posted the photos and names of various women, claiming them to be Flores. In a sense, Ahcee Flores is a very successful troll and has no one to thank but the haters. Everything adds fuel to the fire, and trolls just love to watch the world burn. We cannot prevent people from acting like female dogs. We can, however, control our reactions. If you want to help put a stop to this behaviour, keep the trash talk to a minimum. Don‘t repost those poor women‘s photos. Don‘t blame Luzon. Focus on what needs to be done: sending relief to the areas greatly affected by the quake. In short: Keep calm, carry on, and don‘t feed the trolls.

A ‘modish’ ranking of USC‘s colleges By Joyce S. Maw their breath every second, is what I call easy dressing or school surviving, effortless fashion.This article will rank the 7 colleges and simply describe and enumerate the fashions sported by the vogue collectives of each college. Let us start.

W

hen we first hear of the word ―fashion‖ we think of bonga layering, high labelled foreign brands and jaw dropping accessories on skinny model-esque individuals that make your nose bleed, but we have to realize that fashion in reality is how you put clothes and the like together to make you look good because we all have different specific body types that cater to different types of styles. In a university, and specifically in the University of San Carlos, it is the way students dress themselves to get through the day or more exactly, the way they dress on a ―washday‖. For all enrolled students of USC, they certainly know that there is an unchangeable requirement to wear uniform during the weekdays except for Wednesdays, where most but not all of the colleges are allowed to wear civilian, in agreement to the ―dress code‖ prescribed by the University. On this happy day, a gift given every week for the fashionables, one can dress to kill and astound the crowd (kung attention grabber siya). In fact on this day you get to realize that there are students— groups of students who know how to dress while some others who know how to simply be comfortable. The fashion of those who know is exactly the fashion that is described above, in particular, the get up they sport to get through the day without holding

No. 7 – The College of Health Care Professions is at the 7th spot not because they are prescribed to wear uniform every day of the week, and is thus regarded as unfashionable but because when they do get a chance to ―bonga-fy‖ themselves, only few certain individuals really do go the absolute effortless ―bonga‖ to express their innate restricted fashionista, as many go for the plain blouse or shirt, jeans, flats but (I do admit) a much admirable tote or shoulder bag—for the ladies and a shirt and straight cut pants—for the men. No. 6 – The forthcoming teachers of the College of Education is at the no. 6 spot. The selected fashionable few (and they are indeed a few) dons the printed sleeveless, the casual shirt, the boy cardigan, the ever-wonderful slim fit-slash-skinny jeans and classic denim jeans, sandals, flats and athletic footwear. No. 5 - This spot is for the College of Engineering, home to future world innovators of all things tech and not fashion (maybe)—since it definitely isn‘t something for them to worry about; it‘s not in their job description and most certainly is not needed for computations. The simple printed tee, denim pants with a pair of chucks, a definite ―on-the-go-bahalanalang-comfy-man-ko‖ look is what most of the students under this college sports. (Note that it is most not all, I have in fact seen fashionable girls and boys who know how to look there ―intellectual best‖, not a majority though.) No. 4 – In the School of Law and Governance lays the lawyers, political activists and diplomats. One would definitely describe their course as serious and debacle-filled, indeed requiring a ―serious‖

garb of semi-formalness to fit the mood but surprisingly enough, (Note: I do not mean to sound stunned or amazed) many female individuals—the more fashionable counterpart dons the nice chiffon tops and dresses with the attractively contouring V or scoop necklines. No. 3 – The College of Arts and Sciences, home to the psychiatrists, linguists, historians, the like and the boy-cool look, the satchel, boat shoes and sneakers. Adoring and rebellious-ish, an absolutely appropriate outlandish appearance from the usual standard criteria for ―cool‖ and trendy, is the reason why this college is at the no.3 spot. No. 2 – Yes, the College of Architecture and Fine Arts is home to the creative, the free, and the very expressive individuals who indeed know what is aesthetically pleasing to look at what definitely is not. (It does not go without mention that Fashion Design is in this College) But some of the students do not often think of including themselves in their appealing judgment. Few numerous individuals yes, do go the extra—long extra mile for the ―sun and Balmain studs‖ we call fashion—they are VERY MUCH SEEN and HEARD but the abundant lot tends to veer to the easy going get-up without the pizzazz. No. 1 – And the top spot goes to The School of Business and Economics (Cheerdance nasad!!! Wooooo! I apologize, I‘m kidding around), the preparatory arena for the ―sharks‖ (translation: sharp business minded individuals) and accountants of the striving fast-paced world of business. The vast majority embodies—first the women, the femme vibe chic of either a lovely dress with wedges or fine slimming skinny jeans, with baby-doll shoes, a thin belt in ecru, neutral or multi colors accentuating the hips, a loose well printed & constructed tucked-in blouse, metal plated accessories—and for the male dud, cool printed polo‘s, loose pants and hip footwear.

xcitement spurs in as the end of the second semester draws near. But for the third and fourth year students, there‘s not much of a vacation to long for since a requisite is yet to be accomplished. I, an Engineering student, am one of them. The application stage was quite a challenge. Thinking of all the credentials you could include in the résumé, waiting for a company to respond to the requirements you sent, lining up for hours to get government clearances, undergoing medical examinations, and experiencing those heart-thumping interviews were just the basic undertakings of the soon-to-be trainees. However, when we slowly entered the new world, we realized that all those endeavours were worth the sweat. School teaches us things mostly in theory. What it wishes for us to learn through our journey as students are not just the meanings of terms, the phrases memorized, the points earned, nor the formulas noted. What we must acquire are the things indirectly implied by those teachings but are eternally relevant like discipline, diligence, confidence, honesty, and independence. All these will surpass any degree and recognition; all these are what we need. As we, the trainees, entered the ―real world‖, there was that thrill of what we will encounter and with whom. But also, there was fear, the fear of undergoing the transition stage and reaching the performance level the companies

expect. The rigid rules taught by representatives suggest how well they can monitor our behaviour and compliance. Surely this time, it‘s not a game, it‘s for real. When we are in the portals of the university, we abide certain rules, just like in the ―real world‖. The main difference is the consequence when these rules are violated. As students, we are often given countless chances when we make mistakes. But as trainees, we are less likely given any chance at all. And what makes it all the more difficult is the possibility that our acts will be inputted on our permanent record which can affect future ventures. When the training period started, we realized that our personal efforts should not only permit the completion of projects but must also reflect our character. We then felt the pressure of finishing the tasks on time and presenting them well in front of our mentor, managers, and directors. What makes the training more difficult than the lessons in school are the constraints present in the work environment. It‘s not just finding the value of x given y and z. Most of the time, it‘s analysing what answers to find and how to find them simultaneously. All that said, it‘s as if the training is nothing but stressful, tiresome, and a waste of time. NO, IT‘S NOT. Surprisingly, a lot of us can say that it‘s a great experience, something worth remembering. Why? Because of how challeng-

ing it is, and being able to finish it in the end, we feel that we are more knowledgeable than before and more equipped to wholly face the real world after graduation. We know deep inside that we have learned and experienced things we never could have even tried any other way. And one thing that we will truly treasure is the bond we made with our fellow trainees, our mentors, and all our acquaintances throughout the limited time we spent with them. Sadly, I know of people who never enjoyed the entire training they have undergone. All they could say are negative feedbacks. Maybe they just thought of it as a requirement. Maybe they just thought of it as pure work. Hopefully, someday, they will know the key of not considering work as work. And to the next batch, the secret of enjoying work is this: Do not think of your on-the-job training as a requirement. Think of it as your personal desire to grow as a person and as an information-seeking being. Do not fix your eyes on the goal alone. Pave the way and enjoy the journey, there will be nothing like it. Do not be too excited to finish it. Just be thrilled how you will finish it, for work will not feel like work if it brings happiness and fulfilment, it can be the joy of one‘s life.

WE ARE HIRING!!!

hen you felt a spark as you read the title, you‘re probably looking for a job. For the rest who didn‘t have that spark, maybe you were just wondering why there‘s an entry for the classified ads section in the newspaper. Yeah, you guessed it. This is an article about getting a summer job. Last summer, I had a check list. It had what I wanted to do over the two and a half months I had before school started. First on my check list was to get enrolled for summer classes, second was to get a part time job and lastly I wanted to spend my vacation somewhere I could relax from all the hurlyburly of city life. I got a job first because there was a certain span of time before summer classes started. That was probably when most people were back home chilling and catching up on those shows they wanted to watch during days they had class. Gladly, I wasn‘t the only one who also had this check list and some people even had a tighter schedule than had I. I wanted to get a job for three reasons. I wanted to gain experience so I won‘t seem so naive when it comes to the real working world. I wanted to know if I would actually survive having a job and I wanted to earn my own money. It‘s not like I really need the job or anything so at least there was no pressure on what job I should get, unlike real job hunting, I assume. As I was looking for a job to get hired in, I felt like a little child in a new world. Just imagine a student diving in the shark tank mix of professionals and free lancers and the corporate world. That‘s what I felt like, although compared to the real job hunting process the shark tank I am talking about

would be more like a kiddy pool. None the less, I felt more or less like a grown up. Eventually a friend offered me a job. It was the office kind where I got to sit on a table and do paper work. I got so excited. On my first day to work I went to the office right on time. I wanted to be there earlier but then my alarm clock was malfunctioning. Nothing could ruin my mood though. My excitement was unfazed. My co-workers had the same feeling since we were all students. Everything was as I expected. There was a first-day-on-the-job orientation; we were introduced to our co-workers, we had punch cards to record our attendance. It was almost like school only we got paid instead of being given grades. The people were nice and they helped us cope with the work place environment. We only had to follow instructions and do whatever anyone tells us. We were like errand runners more than anything else. At a time my student co-workers and I treated the job like school work---which was not supposed to be done. There was even a point where a student co-worker and I brought some unfinished office work at home, just like home work. This was one of the biggest mistakes we made. We got reprimanded. In office work that meant over time, and that meant extra pay. The company didn‘t really like the idea of giving the student workers over-time pay. So working, even just for the summer isn‘t exactly like going to school where you get the same amount of allowance everyday even if you failed the last math test you just had. That first pay was sweet as sugar cubes in caramel syrup though. My favorite part was where I got to spend it knowing that it was earned fair and square. My friend got a higher

pay than me because she was never late. I guess this is when they say ―no work no pay‖ and I got paid by the minute. So if I missed a minute, I missed a peso. I am dead sure this holds true to other people out there. After my first pay evaporated in thin air, I knew I had to work again. At least there was something to look forward to. This time though, I was very much up for the pay. But even though I was motivated by income, I could not stand the thought of sitting in the office doing heaps and heaps of paper work. There I found out that I was not able to maximize my potential with the office work environment. Being a student having a summer job I was lucky enough to experience this. At least I didn‘t have to reach a certain point in my life where I got stuck in a life and a job I did not want only because I needed the pay. In the real big world, apart from my small university life, some people are in this situation. As if they are stuck in some sort of rat race. The thought of that happening to me still sends shivers to my spine. I don‘t know what‘s worse than living a life one did not choose for himself. True enough, I gained work experience and experienced the joys of first pay. I wouldn‘t really say I survived the job since I only lasted for a month. So for this summer I will venture in other career options like free lancing and business. At least there would be lesser office work. All the time we only have two consequences when we make a choice: we can either grow or stagnate. This summer you can always choose to be productive or otherwise. Whatever your choice may be don‘t regret it, rather, learn from it. I wish everyone a productive summer.


The desire to become a superhero

By John Louie ―Famoso‖ B. Fuentes

T

o every child is the desire to become a superhero, to conquer kingdoms and to vanquish the evil, to defeat the wicked forces and to raise the banner of the good, to master every art of combat to defend weak, to dream endlessly and to achieve the impossible. But as every child puts the mileage on and the fountain of his youthful vigor dies down, the heroic dreams to do the impossible also fades away. As we grow old, our dreams of greatness die. This is evident even in the Philippine society today. Once, I happened to see on television an evening show that demonstrated one of the causes of a common Filipino man‘s hesitation to dream big: poverty. At that time, the well-known national show was held in the city of Cebu and a massive amount of people gathered around the stage as they overfilled the 7.3-hectare area. People pushed, hit and thrashed one another because they wanted to get near the stage where the service staff and the host were giving away money and freebies. Two women were standing next to each other along the fence gasping for air, struggling so hard to get either money or a freebie. Shouting and screaming, they persistently reached out their hand to receive something. The host eventually approached them but gave a minimal single bill only to one woman. Out of the desperation of the other, she punched the face of the woman with the bill and tried to take the money from her. The other woman fought back and they hurt each other all for the sake of a P500 bill, yes, all for the sake of a paper that could carry their life through for a single day. It may look funny to some but to these people who have not tried holding a bill that much in their lives, it‘s a war they are willing to take. People risk their lives all for things that seem to be grand at the spur of the moment but in truth are not really worth it.

This is reality. Our dreams are as high as a single bag of quantifiable belongings that will one day run out. It is aching to know that Juan dela Cruz‘s dream for life has become nothing less than a bag of goodies. This scene is not just obvious in the masses but also in the lives of students today. We have forgotten our responsibility to the society because we have focused too much on what we can benefit and not on what we can give. We have refused to take responsibility in looking for answers to the pressing issues of our society. We have simply forgotten how to dream big. As you read this text through, try to ponder on the reasons why you take up your course in the first place and all you see in mind is a picture of you passing the licensure examinations, going abroad, earning money through a high paying job, a good car, a good house and that‘s all. Yet, there is more to life than bread and butter. Along with our college diploma is a corresponding social responsibility to continue dreaming big not only for ourselves but for others as well. Of course, nothing is wrong with visioning for a decent life. In fact, Jesus in John 10:10b says, ―I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. But there is a difference between having a good life and staying that way until you die or having a good life and helping repair the broken sectors of society and making an influence for the common good. Our indifference to and lack of information on social issues should not under-challenge us to push for things that have huge societal impacts. Seeing how the society currently works in both the academic and the real, social arena outside, we are left with these questions: Where are the dreamers in this land? Where are those who dream not just for themselves but also those dreamers that desire to change the impossible in

Zenith By Josephine Vania R. Ruiz When God made man and the universe There was a feud and some things got worse:

From stone to ashes By Kyra Canumay From stone to ashes, we go From weed to baobabs, we grow From simple to impossible, we know From serene to obscene, we become From rose to Rafflesia, we bloom From none to grand, we want

The eyes glimmered with glee, ―Without me, you can‘t see!‖ The nose gave a snort, ―There‘s no breath without me!‖ The ears weren‘t far, so they did join in ―I hear the words of the wise, with what‘s to come and what has been!‖ The mouth grinned and laughed, ―But without me You can‘t speak or give insults with ease!‖ The tongue retorted, ―But I am the one who is responsible for speech!‖ ―I command and I plan!‖ said the mind from above. ―But you guys…‖ said the heart, ―We‘d be nothing without love!‖ The rest became silent and quietly agreed, That the heart was superior and the greatest, indeed!

From millions to cent, we need From genies to 11:11's, we wish From midnight to twilight, we dream From breeze to waves, we swim From islands to continents, we travel From paper to bark, we write From granite to diamond, we mine From faux to vintage, we wear From cheap to signature, we thrift From Halloween to Christmas, we celebrate From birth to death, we commemorate From holy to blasphemy, we hail

this nation? Where are those who can not stand injustice? Where are those who can not tolerate corruption? Where are the dreamers whose hearts get broken when they hear that children between 612 years of age are being sold to pedophiles by their own parents in exchange for cash? Where are the dreamers who will stand in the gap for those who are not given the chance to see the beauty of life? Where are the dreamers whose souls can not bear to see the anguish of people living below poverty line? Where are the dreamers to reform the nation‘s economic system? The political system? The engineering? The media? The educational system? Where are those dreamers? We are students, we are the youth and whether it is clear to you or not, we will hold the banner of the future. God has placed so much greatness in this generation and it is about time that we step up to that greatness. It is about time that we take the responsibility in our shoulders and not wait for someone else to do it. It is about time to man up and to set things straight. Proverbs 29:18 says, ―Where there is no vision, the people perish.” This generation can never maximize its potentials until they know what they can really do. The genuine reason why we continue to dream big is not because we have to achieve something in our life but rather because we are assured that we have a God who is big. There is a real fight to conquer---a battle not many are willing to take, a war that is more than just running around with our masks on, fighting the odd ―gubat-gubat‖ in our childhood days. God is giving us a vision for this nation: a generation that will accept this call for the destiny of greatness. I hear the call and I am signing up for the challenge. After all, being a superhero is not just a childhood fantasy but a big reality that anybody can become.

I dreamt of a violet rose By Maria Cindelle Ancajas I dreamt of a violet rose The prince and I have a toast. A genie that grants your wishes A girl in her lovely party dress. I long to flap my feathery wings Down the valley the lark sings I float with the ways, with the moon ahead Here am I can‘t get out of my head. I saw the whitest horse alive Cast its wings in the air it dives. The sun lit its magical white skin Such magic a picture I‘ve never seen. A painful truth I must depart Deep inside a broken heart. Don‘t cry but cast your smiles It‘s a journey in a thousand miles. Snows of winter starts to show Soft wind of spring blows Lotus peeps at the garden Soft petals like a lovely maiden Autumn fall, its red curse Broken heart, it bleeds and burst Lovely bird with its black wings Come its melody as death it swings Love the mortal and feeble heart Only death loves shall be apart Breeze swift upon my cold feet Fire burns, a shadow and its heat
