IPC Session 7: Gender Awareness

So we had this activity. No one knew what to put sa differences ng male at female, kasi sabi ni Dr. Santos bawal daw (kahit pwede naman pala). Stereotypes na lang sinulat namin. So there.

Go group 2.



So kanina for NSTP sa MCLU ang rotation namin. Nasa Quizzardy si Noel at Darren so ang groupmates ko lang noon ay sina Khariz, Mark, Pardau, Chiara, and Jon. Late pa ako kasi akala ko lecture today. :)) we watched Cars 2 and Ice Age 4.

Nanalo sina Noel at Darren (Block 15), first place. With the trophy and medals and all. Hindi nanalo sina Ana at James, and Ana feels so bad and guilty (even though she shouldn’t). I had to fetch her from the CAS Lib (Reserves) kasi ang depressed niya. I had to run from Hainanese papuntang CAS, tapos Pedro Gil Wing pa ng Robinsons ang Hainanese. Doon kasi kami nag-lunch with most of the IPC mates kasi halos same or magkalapit lang wards namin parati, so sabay na lang lunch at sabay na rin papuntng IDC. Di ko nga naubos food ko eh, tapos unli rice pa. Sayang.

Long time no see, 19F

Long time no see, 19F

(Okay so hindi nagra-rhyme ‘yung title kasi una kong naisip 14V, kaso mali pala. :)) )

After Math, we hung out at 19F na naman (what’s new hahaha), and for the first time in forever, wala kaming inaaral! Chill muna kasi overwhelming na ang acads stress. For the first time din, nakita namin si Raph doon, naglalaro ng duo lingo (German). He left lang din after some time at hindi na kumain. Magte-train pa raw siya. Navy Seals!!! :))

Gianne brought some food from her condo tapos nagsaing si Uriel. Kumain kami doon tapos nanood ng snips of movies plus Meteor Garden. Siya nga pala, first time manood ni Gianne ng Enchanted! Kinilig siya haha. While she was watching that, inagawan ko ng bed si CJ at humiga lang ako doon. Nakikinig lang ako at nagdo-doze off.

Nakauwi kami 11+ na, tapos walang willing humatid sa akin (as usual). Si Gio inunahan si CJ, sabing siya na raw maghahatid sa akin. Eh napilitan si CJ, siya naghatid sa akin. Haha.

MSS Grand COWS Recovery

Ena and I met up with Kuya Amiel and Ate Lean yesterday to talk about Grand COWS. The strip station was particularly traumatizing for the both of us, and we just needed to let that out. We also needed some expert advice on how to get over it and how to be decent members of MSS after what happened. It’s comforting to know that there are people there for you, people who have gone through the ordeals you’ve experienced, and just want to let you know that they care. I’m grateful for our one-hour meeting, because though it was short, I learned a lot and it opened my eyes (metaphorically). They saw our point and agreed with us, and that really lightens up the burden. I’m just glad I got to talk to them, especially because I can’t talk to anyone else about it. Now that we’re almost members (S-sesh na lang!), we are more empowered to improve the Grand COWS and make it more in-line with what the society actually upholds. They taught me to speak up, because if you keep your mouth shut, nothing is going to happen. Nothing is going to change. It’s better to stand up for your principles because that’s a measure of who you are as a person, kung may paninindigan ka nga ba talaga. I’m just disappointed that I gave in, and I feel like I’ve let Kuya Amiel down, because I couldn’t stand up for my beliefs. He referred to me as one of the “weak ones”, which is quite painful but is true. He also believed that a greater good comes from evils, because there’s no use in wallowing about what you did in the Grand COWS. He didn’t actually believe it, was against the process, but he understood where we came from. He apologized in behalf of the org, and hoped that now that we’re members, we’re going to do something to change the system. Thank God I have him as my buddy. I wouldn’t have survived without him.

10 Old Fashioned Dating Habits We Should Make Cool Again

Thought Catalog

1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.

I think we’ve all had it with the incredibly unromantic “here” text, and meeting up always seems to be more casual and platonic than the alternative. Of course, meeting someone from online or any circumstance like that would probably be the exception to this rule, but generally: the 30 seconds it takes to get out of a car or cab and knock on the door makes a huge difference.

2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.

“Nicely” means different things for different people, so I think it’s just a matter of putting effort into how you put yourself together to go out with someone. It’s not about wearing suits and petticoats again, but just realizing that, whether or not we like to accept it, appearance does count for something, and we should do our best to make sure that…
