A Raw Thank You Post

***Please excuse the grammar. I am no longer the EIC. BWahahaha! ***

At times, we become too excited that we grow impatient of waiting for things to happen in our lives. When they do, we wish that the journey would last longer and that moment of jubilation would extend further than the time frame that it was meant to last.

In a few hours, we will be graduating and while I am preparing my things for tomorrow, I can’t help but recall the various experiences I had throughout my 4-year stay in my beloved Alma Mater – the good and the bad, the happy and the sad. I think back on all the people that I have interacted with, my first experience in the ward, the people I am with and how much I have grown ever since I’ve entered the college. (I’m not pertaining to my weight, mind you! I know… I actually gained 25 pounds ever since first year and I intend to lose them soon.) Haha. :P I just can’t help but be sentimental. J

Thank you, Lord for making this happen! I’m really grateful for allowing me to graduate with the status that I am in right now.. J

Thank you to all my professors and mentors in my stay in the college for making me the better person and professional that I am today. I hope I won’t let you down!

To my classmates especially my RLEmates who have always been there through thick and thin

To the Nursing Journal for allowing me to be your editor-in-chief for two years and for the people that I have met and supported me all the way

To the Nursing Comelec for the great company and being the proof that morally upright people still exist in the world

To the Nursing Chorale for making me feel that I am part of a family and keeping my passion in singing and performing alive

To the NVC Badminton Team thank you and I’m sorry for not being able to train most of the time

To all my fellow organization heads, thank you for all your love and support!

I don’t think I can thank all the people I want to and have to thank in this simple post. I’ll probably make a more personalized one soon. Good night and happy graduation to us, quadricentennial batch! :D

Yeah. And I still call you my friend?

Merv, i may nvr knw hw hurt u are bt i cudnt believe wat u are doing. Maskt kg mskt bt wat u are doing is creating a greater irreversible damage than wat u've experiencd. I may nvr experience wat u've bin thru for 2 yrs bt u cud nvr match to the 2 years of wat ive gven to the colege. Y? Becoz no mater hw many pipol tried to destroy the council and me, ive nvr and wil nvr resort to wat u are doing. Ur 1 of the true frnds that i have bt i cudnt and wil nvr suport wat u r doing becoz communication cud easily resolve ds dilema. Sori merv bt i hope u cud realize the acts that u have done to our colege.

If communication could have easily resolved this matter, it should have started from the side of the candidates from the start. The efforts of communicating are acknowledged. Pero marami hindi na katanggap-tanggap yung nangyari. Low blow yun na hindi lang makukuha sa isang "sorry" sa amin. Wala naman kaming sinisiraan. Pinapaalala lang namin na irespeto ang pahayagan. Tumutulong kami sa inyo sa coverage ng events niyo pero ganyan ang pagtrato niyo. I can easily stop. The others won't be able to. Perhaps if there are some things that would enrage council members and staffers. There are some things that only journalists can understand.

Pero merv, wat do u thnk ang naramdaman namin nun pntan0ng un nature? Isnt it a low blow as wel to us? My only point is the act that u have done is nt the ryt one and wat it has done is a greater damage dan wat any of us cud have expectd. Im sori merv, i knw ur mad and evrythng bt do remember that there are situations dat cud cloud ur judgment and one of them is being mad

Perhaps, pero paano kaya kayo nagreact nun? Stopping a program? How do we hurt the college when we tell the students to respect the publication which has been dragged in a political mess? Dapat lang malaman ng students na hindi dapat dinadamay ang publication sa gulo ng mga tumatakbo. Di naman kami nanggulo. Grabe, bakit parang bawal kami makaramdam ng galit at hinanakit when you clearly haven't stopped talking about it publicly? Di ba nakakasira rin yan? Di na ba studyante at bahgi ng college ang naaagrabyado? Please do it first before even thinking about it. It's a different context.

I won't argue wth u anymre kc alam k0ng marerealize m rn gnwa m

Kasi wala kaming sinisiraan. It's a simple statement na apolitical and neutral kami.ΓΌ

Cyclical Occurences

It's time, once again, to write a damn editorial and a column. It's also time to edit a humungous pile of articles that would give me intense anaphylactic shocks with insanely erroneous grammar. I really am starting to get sick of this job. There are times when I feel like I am getting infected with their linguistic diseases and there would not be enough verbal vaccine to serve as prophylaxis. What's worse is that when it's my time to write, I suddenly see myself withdrawing to stagnation and spacing out. the passion that I keep trying so hard to burn all throughout the assumption of my position hath proven to be insanely futile as I have been in constant burn out. I believe I can even win the award for the student who had endured a burn out the longest - 2 damn freaking years of editorship. Honestly, there ain't gain. You get criticized, complained at. People scrutinize your outputs and those who have been favored are just plane ingrates. Yes. I hate this job but I do it because I believe I'm the best person for the job and this is the sacrifice that I have to make for the college and of course for my batch. Yeah. Doesn't make sense. I know. I hate this fucking superego. Sheeet. I need to have some damn sleep. My lids are closing and the serotonin is high. I just have to continue this soon.
