Broadquest is an intersection competition among sophomores of the Communication Arts Program. Each section was tasked to create a Broadcast Plan and Programming Plan for the Tomasian Cable Television (TOMCAT) and Tiger Radio. This will serve as the final exam of the sophomores for the first semester of their 2nd year.
I belong to the production house Prism Communications. Our name was inspired by the album of Katy Perry, Prism. A prism is a mechanism that turns light into a rainbow. Following that, our tagline is ‘Illuminating Life’s Possibilities.’
To indentify our plan, first we had to research on the problems of TOMCAT and Tiger Radio. The survey team disseminated the survey questions to random students of the University of Santo Tomas. After that, we deducted that even if the Thomasians are aware of TOMCAT and Tiger Radio, the viewership and listenership is low. Tiger Radio was especially problematic because there were very low rates of listenership.
The BroadQuest Making was tedious. Honestly, this competition confused our heads. It was our first time, and we didn’t know what to do! We thought that we were only required to create a program plan for a 10 hour block, so all our meetings were focused on conceptualizing shows. Too bad all that hard work didn’t get us the Best program award.
It is later that we only knew about the Broadcast Plan. I was included on the team that devised the plan. The meeting was fun, but tiring. I thought that we made the coolest strategies, what with the TOMCAT Fair..
The BroadQuest Proper came and we were to perform last. The first three teams of speakers were great. Especially the Eximus male – female duo. They were amazing. Their tone, presentation, shows, was excellent. It is too bad that they didn’t have a TV Program Plan. Maybe they would have the chance to win the 1st place, and we will be sunk to 4th place.
The event itself made me feel shy of the other sections. I was never close with them. No, my section was not even close with them. I felt really nervous when it came our time to present. Honestly, I thought that our speakers were good. It’s just that we were out of time because they had too much to say. But nonetheless, I really thought we would get at least 1 award.
The awards were being given, Stratos and Eximus were taking it all. I was starting to feel really ashamed of standing there with them. But I still hoped for the best. Then there it was, they were announcing the major awards. The 3rd place was given to… PRISM!! I yelled for 2 – 3 seconds, and then I realized the truth. That we won, but we were not really happy. We sat there in silence until all the awards were given. After all, we had the chnace to sink to 4th place
After the event, the class had a meeting. We were losing, and we don’t want to feel bad again come MARKSTRAT. We learned our lesson: Hard earned research. No matter how good your plans are, if there is no research to back it up, then youre dead. Maybe we will be unified by this experience. Next time, we will do even better.
So my friend’s(idk if this is the right term) mother called me up and asked me if she can photocopy my notes. The fool I am, I immediately said yes without thinking. Now I regret it a bit, because I think that it’s wrong. Truthfully, I don’t really want to lend my notes. Firstly, I took the time to write it. Secondly, it is my hard work, and the fruit of my EFFORTS. And lastly, this is not the first time that this happened.
The first time that person wanted to photocopy my notes, I gladly lent it to them. But this is the second time.
I’m beginning to lose respect for you. I really do. And you didn’t even directly ask me for help. You let your mother do the work!!! That’s the only reason I’m letting you do this. But this is the last time. Please work hard for your own notes.
I know that it’s just notes, but PLEASE PLEASE help yourself by being more responsible, even just a little bit!! I’m willing to help, but WHY DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ME?!! WTH. When I ask you for a favor, you won’t do it!!
I’m just doing this for that person’s mother. *Sigh please help me.
I decided to write my thoughts down, so the message would be clear to myself. I learned many things today, and I have many things to think about.
When you are great in something, and some people are not, you are blessed. Do not hide your talent, because what good would it do? Hiding your gift so that other people wouldn’t feel insecure around you will not help the world. You are a child of God, and you should show your talent to the world in His glory.
Do not just shine, but illuminate. Instead of worrying about the jealousy of other people. share your gifts! Like Buddha said, “Thousand of candles can be lit by a single candle, and the life of the candle will not shorten. Happiness never decreases by being shared”. So, focus on sharing! You don’t know how happy you will be.
There is more to life than just school. Your family, friends, and self is equally or more important.
And some things I learned this week.
Happiness is not achieved, it is practiced! - Bubzbeauty
'When someone gives you offense, you don't have to take it.' And lmaybe it is not an offense at all! Your perspective is the one that is muddled.
Relax. There is no use in worrying. Focus on the solution!
The past and future maybe important, but the present is the one that matters. Because now is the time you can be happy.
I am so thankful for what I have learned. Also thankful for zenpencils.com, for helping me think this way. I think I like the words of Buddha! Haha. Peace! (^_^)V
Why do I make something out of a little joke? Why do I take offense so easily? Why? Why?
Damn it. I try to live by the quote ‘If someone/something gives you offense you don’t have to take it’ or something like that. I learned that recently, and I know I won’t change overnight.. but I just can’t help but think!
I am a sharp tongues person, and I won’t live a day without spitting out a rude remark at someone—even my friends. Even though I meant it only as a joke. I can’t take my own jokes, and I would really feel heavy and depressed if someone did that to me.
Damn, life is tough. Instead of fighting it, I should make friends with it.
I have always wanted to be an educator of some sort, specifically a professor. I wanted to study again after I graduate, and I aspire to teach in UST. But I have a problem. I have no problem in studying lecture, but the problem lies in my personality.
I do not have patience and good heart to teach. I will freaking yell at someone if they don’t get what I taught. I am also a bad teacher. I can learn things well, but I cannot explain them well to others. Sigh. I am a good student, but a bad teacher. Sucks.
Why do I wanted to teach in the first place? Well.. honestly, I just wanted the environment in UST. I wanted to be able to inspire students… naah just kidding, I don’t have that great motivation. I just wanted to teach, I dunno! :)
Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson
it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us
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.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
Did you ever feel a little bad for accomplishing something great? You did your best, and worked hard for something, but still, you felt bad for doing good. This feeling is worse than doing bad in something. When you feel like this, you will prefer that you did bad because you don’t want others to be insecure or get angry at you…
I feel a little better after reading this quote, but I feel that I cannot illuminate others..
Maybe I should have a me - time and talk to myself about things. I have a lot of things to talks about. *Sigh
Today is the most inspiration - filled day of my life!
Well. I should probably insert the word “one” there. Haha! It it ONE of the most amazing day of my life.
So… January 5, 2012 11:11 - time started( coincidence, wow!)
I woke up at around 8 oclock in the morning without any alarm. I felt refreshed (but afterwards I think I felt that I lacked sleep) Then at 12 30, I went to UST LIB to spend my day with Nicole. I tried to study Logic, but it was too confusing, so I thought that I would start with the script for our Lit 102 project which is an Interpretation Film. But.. turns out I don’t have any ideas how to start( I needed my groupmates that I can consult..), st the o I just lazed around.
EH? Turns out my day isnt that great after all.
..just kidding! Then, I thought of finding some film related books, when I stumbled into this great book that inspired me to study film. It had an introduction which explained how to write scripts(I probably forgot them by now..), and what do directors do. You see, I aspire to be a director of films! :) So, I decided to borrow a book (not the one I talked about, but a smaller one), and I would read it later before starting the script.
Then just a while ago, I thought, hey I should watch sample short films, and I went to my favorite YT channel: Wong Fu Productions. I watched an interpretations film, and their film “These Four Walls”. I found them to be so amazing! Their old works are so different from their works now! They are still good, but back then I think they were more creative. Now, I’m watching the behind the scenes and making of the music.
Regarding what miss Jewel said about thte itch to do something. The feeling that you cant just go on without doing the stuff( in her case, documentary filming) before you die. I feel the same way…
I feel the urgency to just form a band, be the lead guitarist ang sing my throat off. I just feel so shitty right now, and I really really wanna do something, but… i dunno how. It’s just so hard because it feels so shitty that I am fucking crying. I don’t wanna grow old and die like this…
Not physically… but.. :( I’m itching to do something with my life!! It’s so boring, and I don’t want to continue doing nothing everyday!! :O I’m itching for some big changes(positive only) in my liiiiiife. Sometimes I catch myself sighing and feeling down, and I don’t know why. *sigh* I really need to do something…
Because they only come ONCE in your life. You have to cherish it and if you don’t, it will feel like a gust if air just passed through, and that’s it. I hate the feeling of preparing myself for suppressing my excitement before the event, and in the end, not enjoying it at all. Because I thought that if I become to happy, I will just miss the event so much more.. Because I hate the nostalgic feeling when you think about those kind of memories. I want these amazing things to happen again, that’s why.
For example is the Big Bang Concert in Manila that I recently attended. Honestly, I didnt enjoy it that much. Maybe because I was too far away from them. While watching the concert, I thought of how it would end soon, and I will just come back to my normal every day life like it didnt happen. *sigh*
In relating to this topic, I also want to share that I hate involving myself too much in things. Because I don’t want to face the rejection when things fail or doesnt go as planned. I also hate to involve in things that I know is just TOO DAMN IMPOSSIBLE(cant explain in detail coz all of you will think im weird), so I disregard my feeling of happiness in pursuing that impossible thing, and instead hold my damn self back. Yeah, in the end I suceed in holding myself back, but after all of that, I am left with only loneliness.
*sigh* damn life, I hope I can fix this attitude, and instead just enjoy things without expecting too much in return..
I can’t believe it. I’m actually listening to pure Rap Music now.. and I’m actually liking it! I’m currently moving my head to the music now.. I’m loving it. :)
I caaaaaan’t believe thiiiiiiiiis. Hahaha. Wanna know why? It’s a secreeeeeeet!!
Just kidding.. =)) I’m gonna tell you about it. It’s because my big brother is(was?) a rapper. He followed his passion and.. didn’t go very far. Right now, he said that he gave up rapping. I don’t believe him.. but it’s just sad if he really gave up right? My parents are rejoicing, but me? No.. I think that he should continue pursuing what makes him happy, while working a day job of course(to support his fam).
So.. there. Right now, I’m contemplating if I should self study rapping. Wish me luck!! :)
Onto a new world of fancy words and beautiful sentences~!
….. just kidding.
I decided not to curse again. When I see people that curse like they are saying a prayer, it turns me off. Especially women who do that all the time like their mouths are a machine gun of swear words.
I swear ALLLLL the time. Sometimes I don’t even notice until my friends tell me about it. They are okay about it too, because I have done it for a long time, and that’s just how they know me. But recently I have realized a lot of things.
When I entered college, I met a lot of people. When you meet people, there is that thing called “First Impression”. When I don’t talk with people, …I don’t talk? Seriously. many people don’t know this, but I am really a timid person. When I am not familiar with my surroundings(places and people), I keep quiet and… observe people. When I was in elementary and hs, people thought of me as an angel. They thought I was gentle, and kind.
….until I learned how to swear. I learned it in grade school, when I was in grade 5. I dunno, just wanted to try. But that habit really became a part of my life when I was in hs. I started incorporating curse words whenever I can. I dunno, it just came to me naturally.
Now in college, many people still thought of me as an angel at first.. But on the first day I’m not that quiet anymore, and I showed them what I was on the first meeting(at least my Slurp friends). So now… when I say to them that I am timid a timid and shy person, they roll their eyes and don’t believe me.
So.. there. I want to change this bad habit and improve my personality as a person, and as a woman.. I cannot promise to remove it entirely out of my system, because when I get angry and irritated… fireworks of bad words will still come out of my mouth. soooo… there! :)
To a certain someone that I have a considerable respect of, but is too annoying for me to resist creating a text post of my kabadtripan..
> I give up trying to argue with you. From now on, you can do whatever you want to, because I have nothing to hide. Go and infiltrate my privacy and do your annoying shit, and I will just play loud music to forget this bull shit feeling.
> I love you too much to say this to you.. so, here is it, where you can’t read this.
Hmmm, ngayong college na ko, sa tingin ko kahit 17 na ko e may pag-asa pa namang gawin ang gusto ko.. At di ko naman siguro kailangang magmadali. Baby steps muna. Sa ngayon, ttry ko mung ang iba’t ibang bagay. Sa ngayon, marami akong gustong gawin:
1. Magshoot ng videos.(Shorts, cover, vlog)
2. Matuto mag bake. Tutal, ang daming utensils dito na binigay pa ng tito ko galing isteyts… mas magandang gamitin di’ba? At mahilig naman akong kumain..
3. Sumali sa isang org na mapapabilang ako at kailangan ang talento ko. Hmm, di pa ko sure, pero pwedeng prods, musika, arts..
4. Mag - model. Oo, himala no. Gusto ko subukan dahil kakabasa ko lang ng manga na http://mangafox.me/manga/film_girl/. Kasi,tako napakasimple manamit na tao. T-Shirt, ,flats(o minsan sneakers). Wala nga kong matinong sapatos e.. Gusto ko matry magsuot ng cute dresses, flowy skirts, platform heels… at iba pa. Kaya di ko magawa, dahil nahihiya ako, o wala akong pambili.
Hi. In the past, you were my best guy friend, but I do not know what happened now. Maybe it was because I hurt you? I didn’t fulfill your expectations and returned your feeling appropriately. I know that I don’t have the right to make excuses, but I am gonna go over that limit right now.
I’m sorry, maybe it was just because I know that if I returned your feelings and we became an official couple, it would not go that well, and we would just break up and go our own ways. It’s because I am not comfortable with a relationship until my parents gave me their blessing that it’s the right time. I learned this based from my experience with an ex..
Yeah, but you didnt even express your thoughts of wanting me to be your gf, so I don’t know if that was really what you wanted. But.. I knew that you liked me, and to be honest, I liked you too. But, that’s in the past now, and I don’t know what happened, because you began to ignore me.. in the past, we used to talk everyday, even if we were busy. I just missed those times.
Well, I have many questions to ask you, but I guess that talking with you like normal again is more important than those questions. I don’t wan to ruin the moment. But if you read this.. then maybe that will ruin the moment too.
Yoooo! I just thought of updating my tumblog(is this term correct?) because I thought of a topic that I wanted to talk about. Soo, maybe I will do some changes to this blog soon, because I want to use this again. It’s been ages since I opened my account. Luckily I still remembered my username and password.
I have been using Blogger, but that is nit that updated too. It turned out to be a personal diary that I wouldn’t want people to read, so I guess I’m returning to tumblr to “officially” start blogging(I say “officially” because I want to do this regularly now). I hope that I can keep up with this.
So with that, I will now start rambling about stuff in my life. I have been using a laptop for two days now, and maybe that contributed to my wanting to blog again? I guess I associate blogging with laptops and Ipads, not Desktops… It’s just weird to type and stuff in that you know? But that’s just me. =))
You have no idea how hard it is to relate to someone great like you @_@
It’s hard becoming close to someone who has lots of achievements and big dreams in life. We try hard and become a little close to them, but after we notice our shortcomings compared to their greatness, we unconsciously back off~ O_O
Maybe I’m thinking too much? I’m becoming more and more insecure when I talk to those people. Buuuut, it’s no use comparing my self to them because we each have our unique charms. Hmmm~ Let’s just have good vibes for now. yeah, I’ll do that~ ♥
SO ayun, May tiwala na talaga si papa sa akin! =))))) Biruin mo kahit na apat na lalaki ang pupunta sa bahay bukas, pumayag siya?! WOAH. =)))) Yehey. Prends ko lang naman sila. Band mates.XD Yeheeeey. Tapos pumayag na rin siya mag sleep over dito gerl prends ko, kaso may conditions. Pero okay na yun! Salamat Lord, Mukhang magiging masaya ang December ko. <3
Huli na ba? Kung kailan ko narealize yung pangarap ko, parang feeling ko huli na ang lahat. Eh ano ba naman kasing alam ko? Wala naman akong alam eh, isa lang akong teenager na malapit na magcollege, pero wala pa ring alam hanggang ngayon. Ni hindi ko naman alam na lumipas na yung tamang oras. Ewan, corny ko, pero yan ang feel ko. Kita naman diba? Ang mga nabibigyan lang ng opportunity e yung mga teenager, pero di na ata ako pwede kung ngayon pa lang ako magsisimula.
Kung alam ko lang, kung mas maaga ko lang nalaman, ano kayang nangyari? Sayang lang talaga ang mga panahon na pinalipas ko. Ni hindi nga ako ngprapractice ng mga instrument ko. Eh ano naman kung may violin, piano at gitara ako? Eh ano naman, kung di ko din naman ginagamit? Nakakalungkot lang na ang tulad ko pa ang nabigyan ng ganyang resources, e hindi ko naman deserve.
Eto tanong, eto ba talaga gusto ko? Ano ba talaga? Ayan na coconfuse na naman ako. Nakakaiyak na din minsan, laging pabago bago ang isip ko. Bakit ba ganito, wala bang permanente? Di ko na kaya to.
Pero kakayanin ko.
Balang araw, siguro hindi ngayon, matatagpuan ko din ang lugar ko dito sa mundo. Siyempre hindi lang ako maghihintay, kailabgan ko ding kumilos. Maghahanap ako. At hindi ako titigil. Hanggang mahanap ko ang para sakin. At susundan ko ang pangarap ko.
Dad comes home drunk and mad, he pulls out a gun and shoots his wife and turns to the gun himself and pulls the trigger. The little girl sits behind a couch crying. The police came and took the little girl to a new family, and she went to her first Sunday school at church. She walks past the building and sees a picture of Jesus on the cross. The little girl then ask's the teacher "How did that man........................... get off the cross?" the Teacher replied "He never did" then the little girl argued "Yes he did. Because the night that my mommy and daddy died he sat next to me behind the couch, telling me everything was going to be alright". 66% of you won't post this, But remember what the bible say's "Deny me in front of your friends and i shall Deny you in front of my father". So re-post this, remember God saw you read this
