so the reason dialogue tends to be my strong point is because I’m pretty good at voices and being able to imagine how a certain character talks and imagining how they say lines is a good way for me to get if what I’ve written sounds like the type of thing they’d say, and it’s like that when I’m reading too, I’m just really good at remembering vocal tone & quality, BUT, since I’ve been vaguely listening to the one piece dub, it’s gotten more and more that when I read OP fic I automatically hear it in the dub voice because they speak english and I’m reading english and this is a nightmare goddamnit how could this happen this is why I avoid dubs

My batch mate, Lois and I like to think of photography concepts whenever we are together. We plan. And plan. And plan a lot of shoots that we would like to pursue. One of them was this Abandoned Places concept which only happened when we were already in the place. It was a spur of the moment thing. 

Although we still haven’t done something seriously like create a photo series out of it (but we still plan too of course), we still love to keep on thinking and planning stuff like these. 


May we never get tired…

Dahil sa frat-related violence na ‘yan, tinatawag niyo ang mga taga-UP na “barbaro”, “walang modo”, “siraulo”, “NPA/AFP”, at kung anu-ano pang mapanglait na salita pero kapag napaparangalan ang mga taga-UP sa loob o labas man ng bansa, bigla kayong magcocomment na “Good job!”, “Proud to be a Filipino!”, “Proud Pinoy here!” 

MGA PUTANGINA NIYO. ‘WAG KAYONG IMPOKRITO. HINDI SINISYMBOLIZE NG LIMANG GAGONG YANG ANG 50,000 POPULATION NG UP. 

Nakakapikon na kayo, sa totoo lang. 

Hindi lahat ng taga-UP ay aktibista.

Hindi lahat ng taga-UP ay mayabang.

Hindi lahat ng taga-UP ay siraulo

Hindi lahat ng taga-UP ay mayaman.

Minsan, self-imposed na lang yang intimidation niyo. Putangina, hindi porke nagsasabi kami ng totoo, mayabang na kami. Hindi porke napapatunayan naming mali ang isang bagay, mayabang na kami. 

I just heard that my friend failed one of his subjects and I very much grieve for him. He’s the most hardworking student I know (besides myself lol) but Math isn’t just really his deal. Good news is, all things considered, he’ll still be able to retain his scholarship despite that one subject because his other marks are good.

Ang Storya ng Kwatro.

The most important lesson UP taught me is not about how to get the roots of a function or how to draw the shear and bending diagram of a given load system - it goes way beyond than that.

I learned how not to give up. Kahit na sobrang babagsakin na ng standing mo, huwag na huwag kang sususko. Because you’ll never know what might still happen. Malay mo, maging madali ang next exams or sobrang dali ng final exam for that subject. At kung dumating ka man sa point na sobrang sure na sure ka na babagsak ka, mag-exam ka lang! At least alam mo na kung paano magpa-exam sa subject na ‘yun diba?

Never give up on a subject. NEVER. Dahil habang may exam, may pag-asa. Habang kwatro pa ang grade mo, may pag-asa ka pa.

Before, I used to detest having a grade of 4. Kasi ano na naman? Effort na naman mag-aral ng buong coverage ng exam, hassle mag-asikaso ng permit at sobrang pangit sa feeling ng maghihintay sa results with the uncertainty kung naabot mo ba 'yung 60. Dati rin, inis na inis ako sa sarili ko dahil “hanggang kwatro na LANG ba kaya ko?” kahit na sobrang sipag ko na mag-aral. Pero naisip ko rin na “hanggang kwatro PA kaya ko”.

But now, during my four year stay in the University, I have incurred around (or at most) ten kwatros. Oo no, sobrang stressful. Kwatro lahat ng Math ko simula Math 17 to 38. Kaya siguro simula pa lang, never na akong sumuko sa isang subject because that “kwatro” always gave me hope. Fortunately, tapos na ako sa lahat ng Math ko. Kahit math sa engineering science tapos na rin. Dumating sa point na akala ko, lahat ng ENSC subjects ko, dalawang takes. Ganun ako ka-down sa sarili ko. Pero nagsikap ako. Maraming beses kong kinumpara sarili ko sa iba na parang “Shet, two takes niya (insert subject here) eh sobrang galing niya.” pero hindi dapat pala ganun, narealize ko, dahil ibang iba ka sa lahat ng mga kaklase mo.

Kaya ikaw, kung nababasa mo 'to at freshmen ka pa, nangangamba sa kung ano ang magiging buhay mo sa University… kakayanin mo, promise. Magsipag ka lang at huwag na huwag kang susuko.

sister is still watching water 7. I started crying in the first ten seconds because of franky backstory flashback. I am glad that I am only emotional about important things, like fictional relationships and one piece.
