One Hell of a Ride:)
We’re fresh from 2 oral defense. Last Wednesday, we had one for our Devcom Plan; Thursday, we had another for PR Campaign and Friday, Sir Artin said our thesis must have one too!;p Then come Saturday, to revise the Devcom Plan.
Before that week, we organized three live productions and while finding time to juggle all these at hand, we painstakingly revised our final output for our thesis.
And the week before that, it seemed like it was a never ending semester. We just grudge that whilst some students are on their bed sleeping for a good summer night’s sleep, here we are, still and still, making the wee hours an extension to do our thing.
But tadaaa! It’s Officially Vacay today!
This semester really is another one hell of a ride.
Sometimes we couldn’t help but puke at where the height is taking us. Or maybe the height makes us feel dizzy that we just want to go down. Or maybe the ride was way too fast that, hey! Some of our brains and all were left at a split second and we just have to come back.
But no matter how cruel the ride was, because of the people who were there with us during the circus, it became fun. We might get afraid and depressed and all, but why do we have to worry? The people whom we are surrounded with make us feel otherwise. Did I just forget to say, hey, thank you! Hope to see you all again on the next ride.:)
It’s not gonna be three, but four, next sem. Yay!

AB Communication 31 with Specialization...
...not in Pearly Advertising,
...not even in Public Relations that is not for idiots,
...and not in Chuckie's Media Production (segue: I love Chuckie and will surely miss him! No more cool prof!)
...but, AB Communication 31, with specialization in PROGRAM-ming, it seems to be. It don't know if it's caused by fate that we're organizing three events for next week, or is it even luck?
Well, for Development Communication's seminar, I understand that we have to since the fourth years are already off. For Digifilm's Short Film Awards, I don't know why the block is to organize the Awards Night (technically, it's day) but I guess the other block is going to fix the trophy thing which leaves us with this (and I'm sure, the block is even glad to be organizing it). But for Pangalay, is it by some bad fate that I was able to pick the Production task which includes doing the program?
I even said, if ever my blockmates have the liberty to choose which of the three event are they going to orgranize with a smiling heart, surely, it won't be the Pangalay. It's not because of the program but maybe it's more of it is another requirement for PR.
It's all coming back again. The feeling that I had back when we did the Anvil Awards Exhibit last midterm, still in PR.

Christmas Break At Last
I need this break.
If last sem, I’m always awake until 1-2:30 am to finish projects, this sem, I was able to go home at 6:30 am because of a single one (and hours later, we have a major prelim exam).
If last sem, only our free day and Saturdays eat up my rest for the week, now, I’m “working” even on Sundays (with matching starvation when the camera starts to roll.)
If last sem, prelim is not yet costly, today, it is and it only just begun. (At di naman kami namumulot ng pera. Tag line! Hahaha.)
But wait! There’s more! More still to experience!
More re-shoot to come for a more exhausted sem!
More dinner via fast food to come for an energized body. Raaar!
More editing to come to wake us up ‘til dawn.
More unholy Sundays to come for a more refreshed Mondays. (Sorry po!)
More projects even during the exam week!
More interviews. More PR. More pop quiz. More MDGs. More films.
But we’re still that lucky because our thesis subject is not yet that demanding. What if it is? Sinabawang lugaw! (Sabaw na, lugaw pa!)
And Blah blah blah!
Wala lang. I just want to shout out EVERYTHING and trash it out together with prelims! Magsama sila! Hohoho! Excrete the negative energy!
I want a Merry Christmas!

I’m really not doing anything. I try to read but I am not as much eager these days. I even try to buy two books last week just so the “wanting “to peruse is there. Not effective.
I don’t know. But I’m still floating. I don’t even feel like going to school soon. Yep, when I’m home I am not productive, but I don’t know. I usually am not like this. Before, I’m really the one who’s eager to come back to school.
I can only do guesswork. Maybe I had too much this sem that I feel like I need to rest more. Funny, but I feel like my battery’s not recharged yet despite the weeks of more than 10 hours of sleep every day. Or maybe, I know that there’s still some more in store for me this coming sem.
Anyway, I still make up my mind. Two more days!
I’m saying goodbye to you now. I’m free, at last.
However, before I finally close my door, I want to tell you those things that I abhor about you. Listen, because I’m not gonna come back.
You caused me sleepless nights and I hate that you do that.
You caused me to have lesser time for my family. I’m always there, mind and body.
You placed so many things in my mind that sometimes, I cannot fully grasp.
You made me realize my frailties of which I’m oblivious before.
You made me give so much; time, money, mind and heart.
You made me neglect my other obligations.
You made me short-tempered.
You made me frustrated.
You made me ugly.
You pressured me.
You made me sick.
Nevertheless, I hate it that I’m going to miss you. I must admit, I learned so much. You made me explore in realms that I never touched before. You made me experience things, so many firsts, which I won’t surely forget.
3rd year, 1st semester, goodbye and thank you.
Thank you, despite that you made me realize my limitations, you showed me much still that I can do.
Thank you for bringing me to places, some of which I’ve never been before.
Thank you for making me meet people outside my own world.
Sure thing, I learned so much.
Thank you for making me write so much. I realized that essay is not my only turf.
Thank you for the papers, projects of which on the making, I almost cursed. I realized that for the future, I am prepared.
Thank you for the competitions which we lost but made us proud of other people and of ourselves, still.
Thank you for the criticisms which, I am happy that we proved you wrong.
In your time, I also nearly lost a loved one and permanently lost another. There is so much in you that I’d like to loathe but stalks off and conclude: I am thankful for you.
This has been a fruitful semester। I am proud of all that transpired.

Excited but Nervous
Midterm is so fast yet so full। In just a month, our hands were full of this projects: 2 term papers, 1 media plan, 1 live production, 1 documentary, 1 play, 1 project proposal, 1 tribe report with presentation, 1 commercial jingle. Of course, minor workloads like reflection paper every meeting for COMM theory, synoptic paper for Scriptwriting, video exercises and ect are not included in the “projects”.
If you have an org and you have to pass project proposals and accomplishment reports and ect।, your time for academics will be lesser. Or if you are also in a student publication, much more.
I mean, all these are just normal। It is inevitable in every student’s lives and it is part of the so called “training ground.”
I myself have not finished with five of those। And it is just so funny. I haven’t finished all that I have to do for midterm and here comes one for finals: a pilot episode for our Travel Show in RTV.
For the show, before we planned to go to Bohol। But it’s way too far. So we decided then to have it in Ilocos Norte.
I dunno। But I seem not to believe that we are planning such; for a student production; for a 30 minute show. But I’m soooo excited for this! Can’t wait to travel with blockmates that far! But of course, I’m also nervous for it.
Lintik na ang magreshoot!
We can’t afford that। Plus, the remaining two weeks will be for rendered for editing. There are so many what-ifs. What if we won’t be able to finish it within the weekend? What if someone, along the way, stole our equipments? Those things.
It makes me laugh now। And this scenario too॥
classmate: magkagroup ba tayo?
classmate1: san? Sa live prod ba? Sa docu? Sa pilot episode?
You get mixed up। You don’t even know who your group mates are.
Nevertheless, I’m happy despite the loads that I have. Especially with productions, if you get to watch your work .much more if it is commended, all the hardships will be outweighed=).

Missing the Blogger Life
I've long been away here in my old home. I was not able to post here my previous blogs from my present world, multiply. However, I do really miss it here. And I’m writing this to compensate for my losses for my old home.
This is not to say that I’m leaving permanently now. If without time constraints, I might be able to live in two worlds.
I miss the blogger life.
|Ma. Veronica Sheena Valencia de Gonzales y Tan de Prieto. That is the FULLEST of my name, no less. Unless I'd
be indolent to write, then that will be Sheena Valencia, and that's how my name goes in school, everywhere!...Sinking in historically, I was born by the date of July 28 and I'm 16. It
was Makati Medical Center who witnessed the 1st sign of my breathing. Now I'm here in flesh at Las Piñas to continue the journey of my life. It's not perfect...but it's great!
I love writing. Although I must admit that I'm not that splendid. I love blogging, chatting, reading- and I don't mean textbooks- speaking- or if you mean orating, well fine!- and sleeping! (Well, actually all of these and more are written down there , so I need not elaborate.) Aesthetically, I'm pretty fine as well as emotionally. Now, sinking in personally. I'm erratic and aggressive but patient. I'm a comic and I love to laugh but I have exceptions. I'm driven by moods of others but I always try not to be. I want justice incessantly but I must admit that sometimes I'm biased. I'm naughty but I know how to follow. If I seem to be dark and sinister...don't be anxious...there are tons (and majority) of my being is angelic.
Currently, I'm a senior- and my height doesn't say so!- highschool student of St. Joseph's Academy and I'm enjoying it! Soooo much! It's superb! There are fuss and flaws but really, it's Supercalifragilistic Expialidocious! BUT on the looming AY to come, I will be in college! Burden is- I don't want to leave SJA so soon! Can I (and we) just repeat? *scowls
(Inserted: Aug. 12, 06)But...that current up there is archaic because at this point, I'm already in college at De La Salle University- Dasmariñas. Meaning, the dream of repeating will just be a dream and will never come true because I'm already here. And I must enjoy what I have because there will be no turning back since I have decided to say everytime I fall, "Standout Josephian!" What a smile it brings me...
...I go by...
Cinderella- the name my parents and relatives used to call me when I was small.
