There’s a good number of students justifying that there should be no classes this coming Monday because of the first ever State of the Nation Address (SONA) of the newly-elected president of the Philippines, Noynoy Aquino. (Or known colloquially as, P-Noy) Students are (somehow) addressing to the government that they are concerned citizens of this country whodeserve to know what is actually going to happen to their country for the next six years of Aquino’s administration. Here’s an excerpt of what these co-students are actually trying to brainwash us with:

“Kailangang maging holiday ang July 26, not for the benefit of the students as a student or a teen but, as a citizen. It doesn’t mean na ayaw namin pumasok, gusto namin gumala, gusto namin magpahinga, or tinatamad kami, kung hindi dahil gusto namin malaman kung ano ang magiging plano ng gobyerno para sa ating lahat, lalong-lalo na sa aming mga estudyante.

Always keep in mind na ito ang first SONA ni bagong Pang. Noynoy Aquino. Dahil ito ang una, hindi ba mas maganda kung malalaman natin ang mga una niyang plano upang mabigyan natin siya ng constructive criticisms as time goes by? Kailangan ng ating gobyerno ng mga kritiko. Kailangan nila ng mga kritiko mostly from the teens dahil sa mga teenagers din lang naman maipapatong ang responsibilidad sa takdang panahon.

Anyway, baliktarin man natin ang mundo, buo na ang desisyon ng pamahalaan na magkaroon na lamang ng pasok sa darating na Lunes. In my opinion, this would be a great mistake of our government not letting the youth to be able to hear and speak out their opinions regarding the plan of the government for our country.” (SOURCE)

Okay, fine. So this is not an excerpt, this is the entire justification/brainwashing strategy. I just thought I can copy-paste a portion of it and still retain their point and their justifications of their point. But I don’t think that would give them justice, so I took the entire thing and pasted it here. Nobody died in the process, so we can move on.

Here’s the deal, I am a student and honestly, I know the liberation the suspension of classes brings upon us. I sometimes come up with silly, non-sequitur excuses to have what I want. It sometimes works, but at most it does not. And this specific excuse of the self-proclaimed concerned-citizens of the next generation will not cross my mind because it is amazingly futile and (I am avoiding to state the obvious but,) stupid. You see, the problem with their argument is that you can fly a Boeing 747 right through its hole. So here are my counterarguments in bullets (the most fad way of stating them) that I think these students cannot give a decent rebuttal to.

  1. The papers of the day after the SONA will contain the entire speech of the president.
  2. Replays will air almost non-stop for the next 7 days on late-night news way after classes are dismissed
  3. The internet, the infinite source of youth’s intelligence today, will surely have this.
  4. Quiapo might have a DVD copy of this for 35 pesos or so.
  5. Or if you are really that concerned with what the president is actually going to say and want to watch this live on national television like one of Pacquiao’s fight, then absent yourselves from school.

This is usually the time when people write how great their year was and how they are all looking for another one; even though it had been a rough year. And it was for all of us Filipinos I guess, after Ondoy, Maguindanao Massacre, numerous deaths of local and foreign celebrities and political figures, unsolved publicized crimes and more. And here we are, of course, thankful that we are still standing, even though badly beaten; we still managed to show that they weren’t smart enough, tough enough, and good enough to take us down.

To the people who know me personally, thank you for being part of my life. Le’z cicc more azzez. IT’S BLUE MOON TONIGHT! STAY SAFE! 🙂

MAX’S SIX SENTENCES OF AWESOMENESS

How tired I am of this unbearable distance between us.
How I long for the toll of the recess bell.
Have you forgotten me? Grown mindless of me?
Tell me I am not writing into an abyss.
Or that is what will become of my heart.

How I wish I can write like that. Sigh. Still busy even when I’m on vacay. Well, Happy Holidays! And good luck with your Christmas wishes. Mine’s kick-ass btw.

Condolence

Dinner time was gloomy. I have never seen grandpa’s eyes so red and tired from crying since last year when they have to leave me alone ‘til January. Early this day a family friend had passed away, Ernie. Ernie Medua I think, I’m not sure of his last name. He’s been grandpa’s partner since I-don’t-know-when, probably during their Pierre Cardin days (that was about3 or 4 decades back). I was just wearing the uniform he made for me. The suits he made. Ha, they even often made suits for Zobel de Ayala. My words are failing me- I’m shaking. Rest in peace sir!

I really don’t have enough to say but I feel the need to write something, so here goes. Halloween, I never felt its presence as I child if it wasn’t for the scary shows shown on TV every October 31st. I can clearly remember watching the scary episode of MMK and apparently it is still shown up to know. And I still refuse to watch it again. I have only seen it once and never in my life I’m going to watch that again. I can deal with throat-slashing, flesh-eating, bone-breaking psycho-maniac monsters and other gory & scary stuff. Ghosts aren’t that hard to watch too, all you have to deal with is a week-long paranoia after watching it. I can watch all this sh*ts including Blair Witch Project, The Ring, Shutter and probably the infamous Paranormal Activity. What I cannot stand watching are the films dealing with hell and evils that came straight from it. I was only able to watch The Exorcist when I was with my 40 something friends. The Exorcism of Emily Rose is too creepy for me and Drag Me To Hell gave me the creeps for 2 weeks or something. I do not know what is up with those but it freaks the hell out of me. All right, that’s enough. We’re going to Bulacan tomorrow; Imma leave my laptop. Happy Halloween everyone! 😀

My aunt just asked me if I want a Wii for Christmas; of course I said NO. I’ll explain everything on my next post.
