Things You’ve Realized Now That You’re a Senior

Everyone needs to stop with the ‘It’s your last year. It’ll be a breeze.’ I swear, I’m going to cut the next person who says that. Senior year has its perks, but really being the eldest in the building isn’t much of a whopper. I’ll be validating this with ya’ll with an eye-opening experience on how it feels like to be rubbed raw and graduating, whether you’ve been-there-done-that or you’re currently in my state of bipolarity (If that’s even a word).

State of the Nation 

(Yes, I’m bringing back The Clique)


  • Your teachers don’t require you to stand up to recite anymore or raise your hand. Thank God! I was actually forming an ass with all that standing and sitting.

  • Sometimes you can just leave to go to the restroom. Self Explanatory.

  • Some of your classmates Glowed. Oooh! New(?) Eye Candy!

  • Eating is allowed in some subjects. Self Explanatory.

picture taking

Pardon my editing skills.

  • Using your phone is allowed in some subjects. Leading us to the, “Sir, pwedeng ipicture?”

  • You practically just need to complete your requirements. Its really up to you with what you wanna do in class. Yun lang, if you dont pass you fail.

  • You don’t have to attend all your classes. You’re probably excused 30% of the time, the other 20% will be absents due to personal tamad reasons, and the other 50% of the time you’ll be in class.

  • You’re close to your org now. You’re also probably either part of core or an active member because you’re not the org baby anymore. Time to make inis the YGs with continuous ‘Awwww’s and ‘CUTE’s.

  • You are not fooled by the same expensive ass canteen food that just appears in different colors everyday. You bring cute baon! OMG! I have a friend who gets her mom to do really cute designs for her baon!

  • You kinda know everyone already, so you know where you can get “help” for your homework (wink wink).


  • Everyone’s favorite word now is defense or presentation.

  • SOME of your batch mates Glowed. Plus, your cougar instincts must be kept in a dark hollow cranny in your mind.

  • You still have to bring some stuff. On my first day of Senior year, I didn’t bring anything and we were required to write so many introduction papers- Like we didn’t know each other already. But yeah, just a tip for my… Er, younger- than-me readers; Bring at least a pen and paper on your first day. At least.

  • You don’t even get what is going on with these online applications. They’re already flying patatas late and then they won’t even accept your village because Google has freaking connection problems.

  • Complete your requirements. Well, thats pretty easy. I THINK NOT. Doesn’t the administration understand how hard it is to balance your school work, with your extra curricular work, with your CET or SAT reviews, while keeping a healthy hygienic body? They’re just trying to kill us.

  • I dare you to try missing a class. Subukan mo lang. Sige, we’ll see if you’ll still keep up to speed.

  • You have no choice, but to make sure you have food for the afternoon every morning. Actually, I love bringing my own food. This shouldn’t even be here.

  • YOU KINDA KNOW EVERYONE ALREADY. Now where’s the thrill in that?

Senior year is hella tough, but it is equally fun. I’ve realized that the more you do, the more you experience. Obviously, you’ll be getting into a ton of rollercoaster rides when you put yourself out there. I’ve decided that in my last year of high school I’d rather have an equal share of laughs and cries, rather than a few fun times without hardships in mind. I know it sounds tiring but to hell with it, right? Its my last year and I’m going to live it to its full extent! That sounded so cliché. Ew. Sorry about that even if it is true.

I actually created my own Senior Year Bucket List. I’m too shy to post it, but if viewers persist I might. I think it’s great to have a bunch of goals of wishes and desires. I have an idea though. I want to make one big Senior Year Bucket List we can all use and edit. I’d have to brush off the HTMLs and Joomlas, but we will soon have to see!

All the love,

Mika Reyes

P.S. None of the pictures are mine! Paper Towns is amazing its advisable for all those graduating this year! 🙂

The Way Music Makes You Feel

I have been emotionally attached to an abstract feeling. I hear the rain outside my window mix with the majestic sound of the tenors and basses and it’s amazing.
I can’t seem to piece together why; why a melody could churn a heart, why I cry to crappy love songs when I’m heartbroken, and why I rejoice in upbeat tempos of fortissimo.
It appears to be a normal noise we all know, but it is also disguises itself as an unfamiliar sound of beauty. In waking moments like this I could just feel a presence, a sense of comfort.
I want to fall in love with a man the same way I fall in love with music .
I want the parts of the piece to completely compel me.
I want to feel the burning sensation in my chest when I feel a song has touched me.
I want to feel the warmth in my face as I begin to take in every lyric recited.
I want my heart to beat faster and faster as the tempo matches every pulse in the room.
I want every moment of this song were playing to make my life seem like it is far beyond whatever I thought it could be.
I want to be completely lost at a home I have found in no where.
I would never have survived without music.
I find the spirit in the melodies my favorite bands play. I find solemnity in the simplicity of quiet pieces. I find epiphany as every tone matches the wavelengths of my imperfectly wonderful life.
In this relationship, I will be the playful damsel dancing to each breath taking note you play.


RB Book Club Selection: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Welcome to Ralyn Basa’s Book Club! 

I have been doing nothing but reading this summer and I kinda like my hermatistic life these past few days, so I’ve decided to start my own book reviews. I’ll be doing reviews on a selection of books that my friend, Ralyn Basa, introduces to me. Most of them are terrific indie reads, but like I said they’re indie so they aren’t that popular. I’ll be giving you the blurb (Back cover of the book with the synopsis- I think they’re important because they say a lot about what you’re getting into, so I hate it when they replace that part with quotes or a picture. Big eff you to the guy who started that trend), my thoughts before reading the book, and my thoughts after reading the book. I hope all the book lovers out there who don’t know what to read next enjoy this segment of my blog.


When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Before Reading

After reading the blurb for the first time and having an intense conversation with Ralyn about whether I should read this book or not, I was having a hard time deciding whether this book was a typical friends with benefits romance novel or a major drama. I have already read Colleen Hoover’s Hopeless, Losing Hope, and Finding Cinderella, so I know what her style is, which is big dramatic revelations. I didn’t know if I was ready for it, because CoHo herself said that Miles Archer was the only male character she wrote that made her cry. I ended up reading it once I found out that there were more than 3 hot pilots in the book and that it is going to be a movie soon with Nick Bateman as Miles- I’m a sucker for adaptations and Abercrombie models.

After Reading (w/ Spoilers)

I didn’t cry, which is unlikely for me because I always cry. I don’t know why but I didn’t know what to feel after everything’s been said and done. I didn’t like Miles for Rachel. I hated them being together because I don’t believe in knowing who you’re gonna love by first glance. Honestly, she could’ve been a bi** and he was just too blinded by his “love” to see it. I found the relationship so unhealthy. You can’t make someone your everything especially at the age of 18, but it is realistic. To top it all off they had a baby. Then the baby died and everything went haywire. I know it’s wrong because someone just died, but I think it was God telling them, “Hey! This isn’t the path for you. You’re too young.” so he shouldn’t have been so hard on himself. I mean like damn. 6 years. I also get it tho, that was his son. Gosh.

I just really hated their situation so much. I hate how cold he became. I hate how much Tate tried because if I were her I would’ve walked out weeks ago, but I guess that was also God putting a person like that with a person like Miles because without Tate, Miles would still be broken. I love how they were at the end tho. He was so #proposalgoals at the end. I wish they extended the ending because I loved seeing them happy.

Thinking about it, I like the book. If it was able to make me think like that and protest like that, then I surely found it interesting. A fact supporting this would also be that I couldn’t put it down and I really wanted to know what would happen next even if we were near the ending.

That’s my take on Ugly Love. I hope you like it or hate it or at least have an opinion about it. If you do feel free to comment down below!

Your Bae Rey,

Mika Reyes

Ang Pagibig Parang Jollibee Chicken Joy: Love in a nutshell

Hello, Everyone!

This blog post is for the ones who’ve loved and lost or the ones looking for the ones they would never want to lose.

This blog post is my official love post! We’ll be talking about love- all kinds of it! This time around, we’ll be tackling love in an extra different way because I’ll be explaining love through something we all love, which is food! Aminin mo na! Mahal mo rin ang pagkain! Pa-Ceasar Salad ka pa eh alam mo naman gusto mo ng Chicken Joy!

Welcome to Ang Pagibig Parang Jollibee Chicken Joy: Love in a nutshell

It all starts with where you get yourself into.

Chicken Joy: Pagpasok mo sa Jollibee mago-order ka ng Bucket Meal kung hindi ka nagiisip at basta basta mo nalang ino-order yung meal pwedeng ibigay sayo lahat ng pinaka maliit na part ng chicken (neck, wings, maliit na legs). Kaya dapat piliin mo yung mga nilalagay sa bucket meal mo!

Puso mo: When you’re looking for the one, you can’t place yourself in horrible locations where you’ll find all the wrong people. You have to choose the places you go and the people you meet! Wag mo ibabasta-basta lang ang buhay mo!

Then you have to make the most of what you have.


Chicken Joy: My God! Marami yan! Sa Chicken Joy marami kang choices na chicken! Tingnan mo naman ang lahat ng pwedeng kainin sa fried chicken. You really have a variety! Some may be unsatisfying and some may be just right, but we’ll get to that later on!

Puso mo: Ano ka, bakla! Marami ring choices sa boylaloos and girlaloos of the world! Minsan hindi mo lang nakikita! Hindi lahat mga gago baka galit ka lang sa ex mo! Hay… may pinaghuhugutan ka lang! Anyways, we have the pakipots, the overachievers, the lambotchingers (malandi), the madaldal, the in-the-closet, the athletes, the kung ano ano at iba pa!

Ang pagpili hindi madali. Hunger Games lang ang peg.


Chicken Joy: Inilagay mo na ang bucket meal mo sa table ninyo! Alam mo na ang susunod. Unahan ang pagkuha sa pinakamasarap na chicken- yung pinakamalaman! Minsan nauunahan ka sa gusto mong thighs or breasts ng chicken, minsan naman nakukuha mo ang gusto mo! Actually, sa diskarte naman yan kung gaano kabilis ang pagkuha mo or how hungry you are! Sometimes you are left with a piece you don’t really like kasi nakuha na yung iba and you just want to eat something. Minsan rin on a diet ka, so hindi ka kakain pero in the long run may abs ka naman!

Puso mo: Don’t you notice na parang all the good people are already taken? It’s like hello wala na bang naiwan sa amin? Pero meron yan promise! Sometimes choosing is hard lang talaga eh! Some people will find you attractive and some won’t. You can never really get what you want, but when you do you’ll be unbelievably satisfied or you get something you don’t really want, but then you realize it made you satisfied naman or in chicken joy terms busog ka na! Other people wait out and in the long run they’ll meet the one! Love is hard! It’s the most unpredictable thing, but like Chicken Joy kung tapos ka na sa isang chicken at hindi ka pa busog, you can always get another piece from the bucket! There are many chickens in the farm! #GawaKoLangYan

Mukhang masama. Bobo! Mukha palang masama kaya wag ka nang gumawa ng excuses!

yung dalawa

Chicken Joy: May mga chicken na talagang masama para sayo! Yung tipong sobrang oily and bad for your health! The ones that go straight to your thighs talaga! The ones na you have to spend 2 hours sa treadmill para matunaw sa tyan mo! Sometimes naman, you don’t know it’s an oily chicken pala! You only realize it’s unhealthy after your first bite! Please lang for your health, don’t eat those chickens! Nakikita mo naman sa labas palang na oozing with oil na si kuya eh!

Puso mo: There are a lot of gagos out there! Sometimes, you can spot them easily kasi their kagaguhan is right in front of you. Sometimes rin, you only notice na theres a lot of baggage once you take your first shot at the person! You gotta love yourself before you love others, so you have to fix up your life before getting into a relationship. It doesn’t mean na all the ones that aren’t for you are necessarily mean. Sometimes, they just don’t get themselves yet or you don’t get yourself yet. Once you know it’s bad for you, get out of it immediately, because like chicken it can give you baggage- baggage in the stomach, thighs, legs and then poof, wala nang bikini body! Mataba ka na teh! Kaya wag kang tanga kasi minsan love is not blind, it’s just tanga (via Ramon Bautista).

There are only 3 types of people you’ll ever date; The Heartbreaker, The Brokenhearted, and The One.


Hello po,

Ako po si Brokenhearted. Naalala mo pa ba ako? Malamang hindi! Kasi nagmove on ka na sa ibang syota mo! I’m the one you made paasa, the one that you never really liked, the one who was not good enough, the one you suddenly stopped talking to, the one you used, the rebound, the one you just didn’t love enough! That doesn’t mean my love was the right kind of love and you just didn’t see it. It just meant you noticed it wasn’t right before I did. No matter who I am or what I do, whether I’m the boy who was rejected in prom, the girl who kept texting you but you never replied, or the one who you just lost touch with, I thought I loved you and I’m kinda glad it’s over. Kinain mo lang ako at tinapon, pero okay lang yan! Ibibigay naman ako sa mga aso o iluluto ako ulit bilang isang La Paz Batchoy sa karendirya kaya okay lang po ako! May pag-asa pa!




Hoy si Heartbreaker toh!

Ako si Heartbreaker! Ako ang nakipagbreak sayo! I’m the one who crushed your heart with a few words like, “Its not you its me”, “Ayoko na sayo! Panget ka!”, “I think we need time off!”, “PUMUNTA KA NA SA BABAE MO!”, at iba pa. Hindi naman na hindi kita minahal ever at wala akong feelings sayo ever. I’m just not in the same speed as you when it came to love. I didn’t think it was the right time or the right moment or maybe you weren’t the right person and I noticed that kaagad. Sorry ah! Hindi naman na kung ikaw yung nagbreak heartless ka at wala akong naramdam noong brineak kita. I felt bad too. Some might not feel bad kasi well you just weren’t a priority, but believe me some felt bad rin talaga. Hindi madali ang nakikipagbreak. You just know that it’s not worth the time anymore and you both deserve someone better. That’s really the point of why I did it. I can be anyone and you can be me. Sometimes, it just happens. Ako yung kumain at bigla nalang nabusog kaya hindi nalang tinuloy.



the one

Hi Beh! This is the one calling! 

Miss na miss na kita! I love you talaga! Pero this love is not a love like A Walk to Remember kasi hindi naman ako namatay and this is not a love like The Notebook kasi hindi naman tayo nagseperate for a long time. This love is just right. It may not be crazy, but I’ll be there for you. You’re not gonna need me because you’re gonna want me. You’ll be an entire whole person who I will just appreciate and compliment. I will never want you to change because I love every single part of you. You will be my best friend and my lover. We’ll joke about the same things, argue on whether Coke is better than Pepsi, and we’ll just be ourselves when we’re together. We may have not met yet and we might not meet tomorrow, but I will be in your future. Just don’t be too scared to love me when I do come tumbling in your life. I love you. I’m in love with you. I will love you for the rest of my life.


The one

Pagkain at Pagmamahal


Round 1: Hindi mo pa siya kinakain pero nakikita mo na siya! Mukhang masarap! Oh em! Could this be the one?

Round 2: Kinakain mo na siya. Mukhang mabait naman pero lahat naman mabait the first time you meet them. You’re starting to get to know the person all their quirks and traits. Wala pang masamang nangyayari kasi you’ve only just met and everything is still fine. Malaman pa siya kasi! Lahat ng kinakain mo masarap pa!

Round 3: Nauubusan ka na ng meat. You already know the person inside and out, but there are just some things that you know they’re hiding so you try to get the most out of it by eating all the nooks and crannys of the chicken. Nasasarapan ka pa ba once you’ve gotten everything out of the person and once you know every small detail about the person, even the bad things?

Now there are 2 Round 4s. You can either;

Round 4.1: Be contented because your meal is finished. You don’t need another meal because that one was just enough and just right. You’re happy and full. #FullofLove 😉


This is an example of a person who found the one. Kitang kita naman na sobrang nasasarapan sa buhay at sa pagkakain! Go lang, Mudra!


Round 4.2: You can always eat another chicken, because there are many chickens in the farm. Hoping to God mabubusog ka na sa isa pang chicken na kakainin mo kasi ayaw mo nang tumaba sa Valentines Day! Hihi


Example A ng Round 4.2! Kain lang ng kain kasi pagkain is my love life! Don’t worry masaya namang kumain! Hindi ba?

I hope you like my Valentines Day Special! Pinaghirapan ko yan!

You can ask me for more things you want to know about love or love advice because there were a lot of things I wanted to say, but wasn’t able to.

Happy Valentines Day, Everyone!

A Letter To Those Who Haven’t Been To Prom (The Truth on Prom)

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Prom will be nothing like you expect it to be. Prom will not be an 80s Romantic Comedy or a 2010 movie released by Disney. You are not going to prom with your best-est guy friend and suddenly sneaking sweet nothings with that hunk you’ve been eyeing for the past year. You are not going to setup an amazing prom only to find out that the shed has been burned, so you have to rebuild everything in 2 weeks with the hottest bad boy in your school. Your prom will hella not be a movie. Your prom is reality and sometimes reality is simple. Prom isn’t a magic spell cast on everyone to suddenly believe that everything is alright and everyone will get along.

The girls who have judged you throughout the year will still judge you and your prom dress or your prom date, the guys who have always power tripped on other guys to look superior will still do so, and the guy who has been too torpe to talk to you all year will still be too torpe to talk to you- unless he has a little push from his friends. People aren’t going to change for a “magical night” and bad things can still happen even if its prom night. Don’t ever think that people would stop their overriding emotions, prejudices, and prideful souls for a night. Don’t think that things will go your way just because its prom- some people can be really insensitive (Yes, even during prom).

Media should really stop feeding us all this BS about prom being the day we all forget who we were for the past years in high school and just unite as one student body. The whole student body will not be experiencing a mass amnesia attack, wherein everyone will forget all the wrong doings you did throughout the years.

I make it sound as if all hope is lost during prom, but that’s not my point here. My point is that prom doesn’t create magic or spontaneous silver linings, but it creates hope; Hope that gives you a chance to try asking her out for a dance, hope that gives you the courage to grab your best friends and rave your hearts away, hope that gives you the competitiveness to try winning an award, and hope that gives you room in yourself to actually try coming out of your box.

Maybe the girl you’ve been crushing on won’t like you back, but she might dance with you. The cute quiet guy in your batch might not be the most outgoing person in the room, but he might start up a few small conversations with the people in his table. The girl who thought she wouldn’t be coming home with a bouquet of flowers that night, might be doing just that as she leaves the venue. The thing about this is that it’s all up to you. You’re given this boost of encouragement from all the beautiful decorations and people to live the moment and take it all in. You make your own night.

You do not wait for the right time to make the right move. You just do it, because if you won’t then no one will do it for you. If you want a great night, then you better do something about it. Remember it’s your night not anyone else’s. At the end of the day when you change out of your dress or suit you’ll be thinking about your experience and you will never regret anything that you’ve done because at least you tried. This is your moment to shine. Don’t let anyone take this opportunity from you.

In the event that you weren’t able to do everything you wanted to do, you should take prom as a training ground to practice daring yourself every step of the way of your life.

Good luck boys and girls!

Ang Ginagawa ng Kabataan Tuwing Krismas Break

Hello guys,

Long time no talk! Anyways, I would want to share a short story before starting Ang Ginagawa ng Kabataan Tuwing Krismas Break. It’s exactly 7:37 am in the morning and I can’t go to sleep even if we had a Holiday Dinner that ended at 1 am yesterday, which is why I am now writing… in the morning. Oh God!

You’d be more able to relate to this article if you are spending Christmas at home.


1. Nagpapa-fasyon. Kahit ang init init noong Christmas Day nagpilit talaga tayong sumuot ng Winter Fashion! Well of course, what better season is it to wear a maong jacket and not look like a Balikbayan. Grabe pa ang mga stores ngayon! Parang dapat marelocate kaagad yung mga damit sa F21 at H&M. Hindi naman sakto sa weather natin eh. Buti pa nga noong Dec. 24 maulan-ulan pa. You can pretend nalang na the rain is snow eh! Para masaya!


2. Maground trip sa lahat ng mga kamaganak! Whether it’s, “Anak! Kunin niyo na yung mga gifts ibibigay na natin sa lola mo.” o “Anak! May family reunion/Noche Buena/Kris Kringle/Christmas Party/Family Malling/Family Ice Skating/Family Mass/Kung-ano-anong-family-eklabu tayo. Tama na yang internet na yan! Magbihis ka na.” At kung makadrive naman ang mga parentals natin papunta doon parang stress na stress mas malalim pa sa chest!


3. Remember, kung may Family Roundtrip dapat lang may BESO BESO! O diba! Parang mga anghel sa taas o! Kita mo yan! Lahat kami naka 60 degree head tilt! Cute na cute ang peg! Dapat lang kasi super malambing at masayahin sa mga kamaganak! Kung humirit sila ng, “Iha! Parang tumaba ka…” Sasabihin mo lang, “Opo, Tita. Thank you!” Kahit sa loob gusto mong sabihing, “OO ALAM KO! Mahirap kayang pumayat noh! Grabe ka ah! Christmas na Christmas… Malamang tumaba ako! Bakit ba!”

Tapos after a while wala na ang pagkakapoise-poise sa katawan…


It’s “Tita, what’s your wifi password?” time.

3. The wait. Ay nakow naman! This is it talaga. This. Is. It. TUH-LUH-GA. Kung maka socialize naman ang parents mo parang wala na bang bukas? Hindi ba kapatid mo yan? Parang kasi full life story ang pinaguusapan ninyo eh. This can take hours and hours and hours and hours. Grabe! Minsan, may mga Christmas parties ang mga parentals mo at hindi lang yun magkasunod pa sila kaya maghihintay ka nalang sa mga sidelines. At iniisip mo, “Grabe naman! Mas may social life ang parents ko kaysa sa akin!”

Fun Fact: In Spain they call this Sobremesa, which is the time after a meal wherein you all sit and talk.


4. Kung Christmas Break walang pasok ang mga estudyante, dapat lang wala ring pasok ang mga parentals. You know what that means. Utos here! Utos there! Utos everywhere! Because you are the young and hip members of the pamilya you are the ones obliged to make the family games, move this, move that, scratch this, scratch that. Alam mo na yun! Joke lang, parents! Hindi niyo naman kami ginaganito ng this level!


5. Mag matchy matchy with the family! Kung sabihin ni papa, “Let’s all wear red.” Lahat kayo dapat susunod, pero kung ayaw ni mama at sasabihin niya, “Hindi! Let’s all wear green nalang!” Lahat kayo susunod sa kanya kasi takot si papa kay mama eh, pero kung ayaw ng mga bata at sasabihin namin, “NO! NO! Let’s be a rainbow!” Walang susunod. Eh kasi naman eh, anong klaseng matchy matchy yun? Matchy matchy tapos rainbow? Isip-isip kung may time.


6. SIMBANG GABI! Actually, I did not go to Simbang Gabi, but I know a lot of you have! I’m thinking of doing it next year! Look at this, o! It’s so cute! We had mass in Landmark tapos bigla nalang all their repapeeps started going in the chapel.


7. Ikaw ang taga set-up ng mga techy gadgets! Ano? Ipapagawa mo yan kay lola? Baka maclick niya yung self-destruct button. Ang weird nga eh! Parang pagkatapos nilang gamitin at ibinalik sayo, naiisip mo paano nangyari toh? Kasi shucks! Gulong gulo na ang settings ng techy gadget na hinahawak mo! Minsan naman try naman nilang i-setup and after 4 months of waiting at tapos na ang pasko biglang sasabihin nila, “Eh! Ewan ko na! Ikaw nalang dito.”


8. Kung ikaw ang taga-setup, ikaw rin ang camera man! This only means, mas marami silang pictures kaysa sayo! Kita mo nga yan! Nagfamily picture sila pero wala ako kasi ako yung kumuha ng pic! At kung sabihin mo namang, “Can you take a picture of me?” Ayaw naman nila o hindi naman maganda yung shot! Minsan pa nga blurry! Pero mommy ko kasi mahilig kaya gusto rin niyang magpicture picture kaming dalawa!


9. KAIN! KAIN! KAIN! Need I say more? With the amount of delicious looking newly cooked food in front of you, how can you say no? Goodbye diet! Goodbye body! Goodbye hard work! Hello taba-taba-ching-ching!


10. Ikaw ang kanilang performer kasi mahal magrenta ng banda! Ipapasayaw, ipapakanta, ipapatumbling, ipapalaro, at papantayin ka sa lahat ng gusto nilang gawin sayo! Magastos ang entertainment kaya ikaw nalang ang entertainment nila! Parang Bet On Your Baby lang toh, except it’s my apo is better than your apo! Ang larong pangmalakasan ng lahat ng mga pinsan sa Pilipinas!

Here you go! I know there are a lot more that I didn’t place in and I didn’t really proof read. So Sorry!
If you want to correct my grammatical mistakes and/or add in anything in the list, then you can just comment below and I’ll get back to you in no time!

I hope this article made you laugh!

Catching in the Zobel Fair


VM Week has just ended and I must say it has been a really great fair for me. I was a catcher, an Interbatch Cheerdancer, and a member of the Media Team for Zoob. I’ve had a lot of insights during the fair about catching, since it’s my first time to be a catcher. Here are my thoughts on the allegedly child terrorizing activity in the fair.
First things first (I’m the real-est!- Okay, old joke), I don’t like catching kids. I wouldn’t spend my God-given precious time trying to snag away little monsters who taunt me every now and then. They’d be all like, “You can’t catch me! You can’t catch me!” Well. I’d hate to break it to you darling, but I DON’T WANT TO. 
Here is an actual conversation with a little monster:
I was talking to a friend about catching and then suddenly out of nowhere…
LittleM: Don’t even think about catching me. I swear, if you even touch me something ba will happen to you.
Me: What will happen?
LittleM: It’s so bad I can’t even say it.
So I touched him…
This was coming from a small boy.
Secondly, It is almost impossible to catch freely; Unless, it is dance craze time. Every single one of them either has a green ribbon, a sky blue ribbon, a white ribbon, a gold ribbon, a red ribbon, or even a freaking drawn on ribbon. You know who you are. It’s been a whoops-sorry-didn’t-see-that-there moment almost every after 3 seconds. Not kidding.
Thirdly, where did all the cute catches go– more like where did all the Freshmen, the Sophomores, the Juniors, and the Seniors go? Were they hiding? Were they cutting? Were they all absent? Were they having an underground party I had no idea about- well would I even go if I knew about it? Wow mga addik. Tugs tugan kahit umaga pa!
Fourthly, I don’t get why they want to get caught. I wanted to get caught before because I like meeting new people and doing the dare. If you think about it, doing the dare is the only free fun thing you can do in fair so why not, right? But these kids don’t wanna do the dare, don’t even communicate with the catchers, and just bail and go. I do not see the logic in that. They don’t even run when you catch them, so it can’t be for the thrill of being caught. They’re just weird. Just simply weird.
Fifthly, I still wanna be caught even if I’m a catcher. HAHA. Ironic right, but yeah. Apparently, when you’re a catcher automatically no one wants to catch you. I had to do this segment for Zoob wherein I had to be caught in each booth, but that didn’t go so well. I had to shout. I was literally telling people to catch me. I felt like a little monster.
Anyways, I think that’s it. I don’t really wanna say more because you might get bored. Hope you guys had fun in fair! I think this would be helpful if you’re planning to be a catcher or was a catcher(?)
