It’s been a month since the first day of school and the most frightening day of my life, I didn’t even know what to do, I feel like I’m fainting  from standing on the front of my new school. Whispering to myself like, “fudge, I don’t wanna go in”, “sht, you can do this reia, believe yourself you can”. Thousands of sinful words came on my mind and mouth. And I really can’t eat that time. I think it’s because i’m super duper freaking mega ultra nervous that time and I don’t know how to make friends. It’s because I spent my 6 years on my old school, and it’s really a big change for me. You know, I came from a city and transferring on a province. Though they’re the same from people in the city, it’s still different. You may ask why.. it’s because they have culture that a “city person” didn’t know. Filipinos have that term, “taong bundok” on someone that didn’t know a simple thing. And I call myself as “taong siyudad” because i don’t know their culture. hahahahahhaha lol.

My month being a luxian is really a big change for me though. My school’s name is “Fiat Lux Academe” (pronounced as fi-yat luks a-ka-dim). They have the things that my old school didn’t have and they didn’t have the things that my old school have.

Their clubs and organizations are completely different – in a good way though. They have FLARE (Dance), FLAMES (Sing), FLAMBEAU (Journalism/School Paper), FLAGS (Theater), Varsities (Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball etc.), and Interest clubs such as Artists’ Guild, Geek club, FLA Shots, Guitarists’ Guild, Cyclists’ Society, and something about cosplay. They also have their club fair,, fiathletics (Intrams) and etc etc. And they really have great facilities – except the comfort room though. HAHAHAHA.

During morning assembly, we have to recite the prayer, academe’s philosophy, mission statement, and the core values – well, except for monday. During mondays, we’re having our flag ceremony where FLAMES (Fiat Lux Academe’s Music Enthusiasts Society) is on the stage to sing the national anthem, the Dasmarinas Hymn, and our school’s hymn. We also recite Panatang Makabayan and Panunumpa sa Watawat ng Pilipinas.

After the assembly, we are supposed to go to our designated classroom and to our designated seats. Our schedule are 2 hrs per subject. It’s better than I thought. Haha! And our canteen is not your typical canteen, there are many gazebos and it’s the place we eat our food. The fresh air.. ahhhh.

I must say, I’m 83% adjusting as of now. Lol. Well, I’m trying to make friends and luckily, I have made many friends and I hope nothing won’t change. I  hope everything will be perfectly normal in the coming days, weeks, and months. Just keep in touch. Haha!

I hope I will enjoy my stay there. 🙂


DUTERTE: Para Sa Pagbabago

As Duterte being the 16th President of the Philippines, though many people don’t like him, but the rest supports him.

Rodrigo “Rody or Digong” Duterte is a former City Mayor of Davao City — one of the safest cities in the whole world. It ranked 4th as of month of June. Davao City is one of the places that has 911 rescues. USA, Canada, and Davao are the only places to have 911. Duterte is also the first local government to give goods to the Yolanda victims (internationally called “Haiyan”).

Duterte is one of the toughest politician in the world of politics. He bacame a lawyer, congressman, vice mayor, and a city mayor for decades. Though, being tough didn’t stop him to rule the city — and the country. He also said that at first, being a mayor is not his thing. But for me, I think he loved it. And it is also an honor to Davao to be ranked 4th as one of the safest cities in the world.

But my question is, how can he rule the country because for me.. Davao is just a small city comparing to a country (of course). And some mayors don’t do their job well. Comparing to Duterte, he’s hella one of the greatest mayors — or should I say, the greatest and the wisest mayor in the Philippines. It’s kinda hard to rule a third world country. I’m not degrading my own country but I must say that Philippines can’t rise without the help of Filipinos. One must contribute and change their own and obey the rules.

Pagbabago – change. We must change ourselves in a good way. We can’t have a great president if we don’t have our great personality. Just like in school, in class.. Groupings. Each group has a leader. I experienced being a leader many times and I have observed, that one must coordinate and help the leader, because if we are helping and doing the project together, we’ll create something different (in a good way).

He told the media that he will start the change on him. He’ll wake up early instead of waking up at noon. I think it’s because he rounds at the city during midnight that’s why his body clock wakes up at noon.

I just want to say that we must start change in ourselves if we want to change the country so bad. We must obey the rules and we must possess self respect and to overcome temptation. If we live in a world full of temptation, we can’t have the good and beautiful life that we pursue.

We must not rely only in Duterte. We, too, have to coordinate and help each other to grow. That’s how the country grows. With the help of everybody. And if we achieved that kind of growth, we must be consistent until the very end.
