This Happened In Anotherland… Were you there?

Last May 29, 2015, we tore the south down with the sickest party that ever touched Filinvest grounds. I know some of you guys missed out in all the fun because ya’ll had to do something on Saturday morning or were really not in the mood- Boo! Since I’m awesome, I have decided to a little something for you guys! For those who missed Anotherland, I’ll be recalling the experience in writing so it’ll be like you guys were there too. Here it goes!
Opening (5pm-11pm): You arrive at the venue a little before 11, because who goes to a party at 5pm right? You could hear the music from your car window, even when you were still a few blocks away. The music was booming by the time you actually got out of your car. You walk the long road before reaching Anotherland until you see it. You see the barriers to the gates of another place, another world. Cars are lined up at the opening of the play ground. They’re filled with booming music, accessories, and girls. You feel like you just stepped in Furious 7. You give out your ticket. You get a stub and a glow stick, because you’re VIP. The place has food and tattoo shops inside the Gold section. You make your way to VIP and you see the stage. It was illuminating and the music was pounding harder as the night grew. There weren’t a lot of people yet, but you could already see the potential of some. You drank and ate while waiting for the crowd to grow.
Main Act (12pm-Onwards): The crowd got bigger all of a sudden. A lot of people you actually know started piling in the fest grounds. You and your friends greeted everyone else. The main act started playing and the crowd goes wild. People start pilling to the front giving out their best moves. You join in because who wouldn’t? You dance till your feet hurt. You know you’re not the best dancer out there, but at this moment you really just don’t care because everyone seems to be enjoying each other’s presence. You follow every command of the hosts. If they say put your hands up, then you do as your told. It seems like anything is possible at this moment. You could go for anything and do anything. Now the night goes on in your will. Will you talk to the hottie? Will you break out in dance? Will you triumph in the drinking games on the sides of VIP? It’s up to you.
The following day: Well, whatever you did yesterday made sure you aren’t getting out of bed properly today. You know maybe you should cancel your plans today.
Wish you went to Anotherland? I know you do. Don’t worry, Axell will providing us with more parties to come!

To the PC after us and the PC after them (I’m not talking about computers)

Dear Future Prom Committee,

First and foremost, good luck! You’ll need it. Okay, not to pressure you or anything but the whole idea of a magical high school night is in your hands- like I said no pressure. Yup, no. I can’t do this anymore. There is a lot of pressure of course. If you read my blog then you would’ve read “The Truth About Prom” wherein I talk about a mythical magical night. I did contradict that statement by saying you can create your own magical night. Guess what, that “creating” I’m talking about would be 40% the promticipants and 60% the prom committee, so you guys are really really important. No matter how small you think your job is, it’ll actually be a tremendous help! No sponsorship no money, no invites no guests, no awards no winners, no decors- well hell who would want a prom with no decors? You know what I’m saying? Yeah, I know it’s a lot of pressure especially because batchmates can be a little-lot-bit judgmental but you were chosen for a reason, so I just know that you will fight for the perfect night till the end no matter how much blood, sweat, and tears will be shed. Yes, maybe a little blood, a lotta sweat (Don’t worry that’s calories too!), and a hella lot of tears! With everything said and done, I would really just wanna say good luck again! That’s all.


Particularly for the Sponsorship/Fundraising Committee…

I may not be the best person to give advice because I spent hours putting my taray voice on for company calls but ended up empty handed, so I’ll just give you tips about things I know!

  1. BE STRONG! A lot of people will think you’re just a whiny high school student asking for adult help like a little baby asking mommy for a bottle, but you’re not! You are a sophisticated business-y person in an adult world.You know what you want and you won’t take any spoon feeding cr*p!
  2. Do not be a tardy pants! Once you are informed of a project, you get on it faster than ASAP. Do not wait for a follow-up because by the time someone follows-up on you and by the time you follow-up that follow-up, you’d already be served up by your head. It would seriously be too late and that happens a lot in the Sponsorship/Fundraising Business!
  3. Do not give up! There were so many times wherein I felt so discouraged because no one was biting my line. I wasn’t getting any sponsor as in zilt! Just keep pushing for what you need and never be afraid to ask help especially from your PA.
  4. Compromise! You have to be a chameleon! Is that the right lizard? Basta, you have to be flexible with your committee mates and your schedule. If you really want it, then you’ll spare a bit of me time for work time!
  5. If all else fails, help the other committees. Make yourself useful; promote when needed, do inventories, pack souvenirs, test souvenirs, make iced tea, convince classmates, convince teachers, convince principals, convince yayas. Just do something. You will always find work to do in PromComm!

The golden rule is to have fun, guys! As long as you “love your job” (*wink* Awards Comm ’16 *wink*) you can get through the over popular prom night!

With all my love, I bid thee goodbye and may good fortunes be brought to your prom night! 

I have so much faith in you, guys! Especially my Fundraising Babies namely; Camilo De Guzman, Kirsten Mayuga, Zoie Garcia, and their abroad head Vicky Manalo! 

Love,

Mika Reyes
