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.

CONFESSIONS PART 1

Like all famous confessions, this one will also come in parts.

Part 1: The when.

About a year ago, I decided to start blogging. It was a brain-draining process of coming up with fresh ideas I which I think people can relate to; thus giving me enough views I want. My blogging life somehow revolved around that specific idea. Late October last year, my depression has brought me to write something more personal and heartfelt. It felt good but didn’t quite clicked; so I stopped. Then when I was back to my ‘sober’ state, I went back to blogging what I think are the possible top google searches will be. Hence, the Bieber jokes, Villar asshole-ness and the now famous, jejemon. Ah. The jejemon phenomenon. I, probably, am one of the first people who blogged about this jejemon fever or whatever they call it now. I first coined them as “Jeje People”, showed a little respect and a liter of disgust. Now that little respect is continuously draining. But this is article is not about them. Yes, it probably is a wonderful way to become ‘famous’ in the blogging world or whatever people call this back alley of literature. The problem I have with this blogging-what-the-internet-wants is I somehow lose myself in the process. Hence, my absence. I tried to find what I can do with so little talent that I have. How I can remotely relate to people without losing my own personal brand of heroine. LOLJK. I think everyone will agree that there are number of grammatical error in this post alone, but fuck it. No one follows these rules really, except the Nazis.

Here are a couple of letters I sent last week:

Dear Sun,

We all know you’re hot. Please stop being a bitch about it.

Burned to crisp,
Masen

Dear High school friends,

I know we have an annual swimming and everything during summer and we rarely see each other. But 5 am is too much for me. 350 is too much as well.

Wanting to sleep,
Me

Dear Daimos,

Thank you for passing me. It would be amazing if you passed my other friends as well. It would be even mooore amazing if you become wee-bit more considerate. But then again, you passed me.

Now confused,
Masen

Dear Garcia,

I was serious about the Smith and Wesson. But I can settle with an air soft, all right.

Hoping you took it seriously,
Me

Dear Innxh,

Thank you for this idea. It’s just as awesome as you are. May is nearing, get your ass over here.

Patiently waiting,
Walrus

Dear Csdae,

Can we cut the crap and face reality? I miss you. Sorry, I’m too lazy.

Adsds,
Etesdfdg

Dear Masculinity,

These “guys” need you badly. Their testosterone just hit rock bottom.

Badly disturbed,
Masen

P.S. Bieber needs you as well.

Tinitingnan nila ako

Habang nakapiring ang kanilang mata
Tinitingnan mo ako
Habang ang pangil mo’y nakahanda
Manhid sila sa katotohanan
Nalulunod sila sa kasinungalingan

Tao ka ring maituturing
Alam ko ang pag-asang sa’yo ay aking itinanim
Ang binhi ng himagsik sayo’y tumutubo
Putulin mo ‘yan
‘Yan ang papatay sayo
Traydor ang iyong kakayahan
Kakayahan, kaligayahan, karapatan, katapatan,
Kamatayan. Kalayaan?

Hindi ka nag-iisa
Ngunit hindi ka nila sasamahan
Kalokohan lamang ang aking pagpigil
Alikabok at kaluluwa
Tanggap mo na kung ano ka
Ikakasa mo ang baril, isang araw
Itututok mo sa bibig mo
Ngunit nasa daliri ng iba ang gatilyo
Mamamatay kang nakangiti, naliligo sa dugo

Habang inaangat ka
Ng mga anghel ng kalangitan
Malalaman mong mapalad ka
Mapalad ka pagkat maaga mong nalaman
Na nalalason ang iyong mundong ginalawan
At akala mo’y nahanap mo ang gamot,
Ikaw.

Nakangiti kang umaangat
Habang nakangiti silang naka-tango sa iyong bangkay
Umiinom ng alak, kumakanta, nagsasaya
Pagkat sa kanilang mga mata
Ang lason ay ikaw.

This is soooo bad. I haven’t posted anything since the 8th. I was too busy with school and I ran out of witty, interesting topic to talk about. My stats are dropping fast; so much for a New Year Resolution.

10 Random things you need to know to catch up:

1. I just had my hair cut (really) short last Sunday.
2. I/we just killed and dissected a pigeon for the name of f*cking science. Oh yeah, a stinky shark too was dissected :-&
3. I’m in the verge of failing Comparative Anatomy Lec and Lab. All, except one, failed the Lecture exam and our professor doesn’t give a damn. But I ain’t gonna give up.
4. We are supposedly the last batch to have Comparative Anatomy Lec and Lab in PT.
5. CRS week was last week. It was F-U-N. Kamera-horing. =))
6. I’m addicted to CS Source and Left 4 Dead 2. Justin BV snipes B-)
7. I’m running out of cash. (Reason: Refer to no. 6)
8. I’m still pissed off with the “bag of douche”
9. I am in dire need of some inspiration to keep on blogging.
10. Justin Bieber’s gay. Talk about some hardcore career suicide. Loser:))


Not surprising.

UGH! BV.

1. Unlike you, I am responsible and sensitive enough to at least make up for the things I did wrong. I know misery do love company but when someone really has nothing to do with it, please do not put the blame on her and just sit down while she clean up your mess.

2. I may not be as intelligent or as hardworking enough as you, but these people are my people; I care for them, unlike you- you, who don’t care about anything but yourself. And for the record, no one wants your position or even competing for them; you’re lonely up there.

There are two kinds of men and only two:
There’s the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot on the other one’s face

3. And third, I know you’re stereotyped as religious because of what you say and you “do.” But I am sorry; your real actions don’t reflect them. I, apparently, am more religious compared to you. Saints give me goosebumps btw.

I was busy in school lately; exams came up. And I still have no idea what to put it in here. So for the sake of posting something and relieving myself of the anxiety of scarcity of thought, here are some videos.

I’m a Yankee fan but this is soo great. They do this every eight inning against Yankees in Fenway. Pretty much like Boston’s version of Yankee’s roll call.

I really want to commend how great Puck was in this cover, but I don’t know, words fail to describe it. Ugh. Compa just drained my brain I’m sorry. I promise to post something worth reading as soon as I relieve my self of the pressure school is giving me.

~Pressure, pushing down on me, pressing down on you. ~
