I was looking around Julie's online photo gallery on Flickr, mostly photos taken from France and Romania, and saw some interesting faces of people and life.

And I just discovered how A LOT had been added since my last visit to her account!

Click the colored words (huwah! "colored"[?])) for the links and see what you can find.


Things would be better if...we would all be better off if we all have enough conscience and care for each other

Wouldnt it be great if I were that stick character, on the upper right hand corner of this blog, with great super powers but still cant open a damn door. At least I'll be able to vent out my frustrations over a puny door that refuses to budge without having to worry if I end up destroying this planet in the process, therefore beginning another major extinction.
I preffer that over not being able to do things that I want to do or effectively show real, unbriddled, reactions over some issues because there might be regretful consequences. Or that I cant do some things because I dont have the capacity.
Wouldnt it be great if we may all say, do, and think of everything without consideration whatsoever. Wouldnt it be great if there was such a time and place for such.
But of course, if all that were to happen, there might not be any more chance to say, do, and think of anything at all because there might not be anyone left to do any actual saying, doing, and thinking.

It feels great when we can express what we trully feel without having to worry of what people might think or how would they react.

I would feel great if I could actually have somebody with me right now whom I can talk to about all these.

I would feel great if I reach a point wherein I can trully say to myself that there's nothing more I could ask for. I hope that I wont have to be ripened by decades, physically weak, and successful beyond everybody else's expectations in the worldly sense before I can say that.

I would feel better right now if these two beside me, in the UST library, didn't smack their lips just now and that I wouldnt be grinning right now with that feeling of funny unease. (Wouldnt it be great if I can do that too without having to worry how the people around me might react.)

I would feel good if I were blogging about "more relevant issues" like how good/stupid it was for that former Peruvian President to go back to Peru and get jailed; how Pope John Paul II, in my opinion, has more charisma that our present Pope, with all due respect, Pope Benedict XVI; how our country would be better off if only we do good in our own personal ways and get rid of all the negative remnants of an obsolete paradigm---social, economic, cultural, political (remember, we only get the government we deserve), and whatever; what improvement it would be for Philippine society if the jeepney were to be modified so that passengers wouldnt have to sit facing everybody else and that the roof were raised a bit higher so that people of my stature (physical, that is) would see a wider view of the outside like I used to enjoy as a child and that jeepneys wouldnt have to be airconditioned too because the air is finally free of air pollution; how we would all be better off if we all have enough conscience and care for each other. haw haw de carabao blah blah blah. argh, there's just too much to discuss.

Peace. Inner peace.

It had been ages since my last post! Isang pasasalamat tungkol sa Thesis.

So here's something that'll hopefully make up for the past days.

Visit Ria's post to read about our Thesis Defense. Anyway, here's my version of it.

The Defense with sir Christian Esguera went well. No. It went much better than expected. He liked our Thesis. He even admitted that he doesn't read blogs, not even the ones on Friendster. Through the Thesis, we were we able to convince him to (read about) blog(s). He also became our instant editor and he pointed out particular grammatical errors we committed on the Thesis that we haven't noticed even after the long arduous process we went through. That was one of the best part of our Defense with him, aside from the fact that he gave us a 1.00, because it's not everyday that you get to have Christian Esguera to correct your Thesis. Thank you po sir!

It was after the Defense with ma'am Gwenetha Pusta, during the moment when she was congratulating us and said, "I cant even ask questions!", that I felt one of the happiest moments of my life so far. She said, "the Thesis was well written, consequential," and a lot more nakakataba ng puso comments. "Nangingilid na ang luha ko ma'am." I admitted then because I really was overwhelmed. Maraming salamat po ma'am! I was happier that moment than the moment when I first learned that I was a Dean's Lister again. Of course I cant compare it with the time when I first saw my 1.00 grade from ma'am Cynthia Rivera's Literary Criticism. THAT was more of a moment of (initial) disbelief than glee.(Magpapasalamat din ako kay ma'am Rivera dito sa post na ito kahit di related sa Thesis. Salamat po mam!)

Maraming salamat po kay sir Jefferson Aquino dahil siya po ang pinaka-supportive na adviser na nakilala namin hindi lamang dahil, obviously, adviser namin siya kundi dahil, base narin sa mga nalalaman namin sa sinasabi ng aming mga butihing kaklase tungkol sa advisers nila, ginagawa niya ang lahat ng magagawa niya para mapabuti lalo kami at ang paggawa namin ng Thesis. Ang participation at suporta ni sir Aquino ay di mapapantayan! Maraming salamat po sir!

Maraming salamat din po kay sir Jeremaiah Opiniano dahil kung hindi dahil sa kanya, hindi magiging maayos-ayos ang Defense schedules. Although, well, you know what I mean sa kung ano ang nagyari sa hierarchy ng AB kaya you know what I mean na ang nangyari sa schedule ng mga dapat na magdedefense.
May gusto ako sabihin dito pero off-the-record. Eheheheh. :D I-encrypt ko nalang sa salitang Español! JOKE! Sa isang Ifugao sub-dialect nalang: Chimmalan juh nakak hini tsuguh un mehtoloh, aha un pfu-phuy juh aha un lalae, juh tinai-nuhn chu hini metob ini Dean nga nangali nga ichi met-ten mubulin nga mun-defence hunu ochumnuh un estudyante.

Maraming salamat din po kay ma'am Joyce Arriola dahil kung hindi sa pagtulong niya sa amin na magdesisyon ng kung alin ang pipiliin naming Thesis tittle at sa mga turo niya sa klase niyang Thesis Writing ay malamang di namin mararanasan ito ngayon. Maraming salamat po ma'am!

Maraming, maraming salamat din sa Diyos! Maraming, maraming salamat din sa aming mga pamilya! Lubos din ang aming pasasalamat sa aming mga sarili! (Nope. We're not concieted.)
