Making our own communication model is our first quiz in Communication III (Speech Communication). Madam Inton divided the class into four houses–I was sorted onto Ravenclaw (No criteria whatsoever btw). The first place is worth 50 points, second being 45, third being 40 and fourth being 35. Our house was the first to present. Luckily, we have presented it well although we had some last minute preparations.
I would be leaving for Baguio City tomorrow for the 9th National Debating Championships. Ugh, I don’t know what to expect but I need to be in a debate mode on the 22nd–the first round of the tournament. We need to have much madness to achieve the divinest sense. Oh well, five days of clash of persuasive powers. I do good in persuading other people but I am weak in persuading myself. Issues, eat me.
Mary Johnston Hospital on the Aspect of Change:
A Survey-Analysis of its Organizational Development Process
I was really not satisfied with our OrCom 101 paper although I feel that it would still merit a good rating. Haha. I, Rish and Ace are just slacking off during the paper-making itself–sound trip and laughing about non-sense things. I am quite happy because we were able to come up with a good analysis and conclusion. Oh well, we’ll just wait and see.
I Thought, But
When we passed this last requirement for the semester, I thought we should be happy, but our emotions are just so-so. Maybe because it is brought by the stressors that we have collected during the two hell weeks (the second one being worse). And add to the fact that I am having a hard time dealing with my emotions. Yes, it is hello issues again.
How would you deal with something that you hate but would never change?
I will be having my first national debate tournament–National Debate Championships in Philippine Military Academy, Baguio City (October 22-27). And the money I have spent or would be spending is really really big in amount (Yelp!)
Figures in Philippine Peso
Registration Fee: 2400.00
Hotel Accomodation: 1750.00
Transportation: 760.00 (Round Trip)
Pocket Money: 1000.00 (Poor me)
Total: 5910.00 (Almost 6 grand? WTF!)
I need to persuade myself that this would be a detox week for me. But, err, why can’t I? Kuya Aloi said to us that UP-Manila teams should be capped because it is simply prestigious. Haha, how ironic! :) Arvin and I would be matter-loading this weekend with some issues about everything.
There is a new world in Robinson’s Place Ermita! It is called Midtown. It is connected with the Pedro Gil Wing and Adriatico Wing(?) of the mall. Super large! Super elite-looking! And, whoa, Water Fountains and Classical Music! Makati much? Speaking of Makati, Glorietta Mall was bombed. Let’s pray for th eternal repose of the souls who have died and for the speedy recovery of those who have been hurt.
I don’t know, but I ended this semester without doing anything special to her.
Is carrying her bulky puncher as we stroll Midtown considered special?
See 001-012 in October 15, 2007 entry ;)

Last night, PAG-ASA, NDCC and some other organizations had a meeting and a press conference for a possible announcement of suspension of classes. After some time, it is official, the classes are suspended for tomorrow or for today (Friday). When I heard it, I texted the block for the exciting announcement. But really, I want to go to UPm. Sad. I also texted Marvin about the announcement because I am assuming that he is so busy studying that he can’t hear or watch about the announcement. And as I expected, he didn’t know it.
After my night rituals, I am now ready to go to sleep. And yes, I overslept. When I woke-up, I had my usual stretching exercises. Cramps, I am so desperate in growing a little taller. I ate two Ensaymada, drank my vitamins and then, yes, slept again. When I woke up (Phase 2 of waking up), I ate my late lunch and had some internet surfing. I originally planned to make my OrCom101 notes but I am cursed not to do it. LOL.
I and Wynne also had some text conversation. I also told her about an issue. Hmm.
Here I am, doing nothing. Oh well.
