unlike alot of people, i cant really say that i'm looking forward to ging back to school. i've seriously been deprived of a vacation, and i think first hand knowedge of idleness is key to even slightly miss school work. i'm not really hyped to see some
people as well, having heard of reports that over the summer, they've been really lame and, ugh, illogical
. i miss my high school friends though. it's been eons since we last saw each other as a group. so many things have happened since that last time. if ever we meet at jilly's again, there'd be no dimples to greet us. and the number of grey table men are down by one.
internship is almost, almost over. only a sidebar and 1/5 of an article left. last monday was a surprise. our boss chief, CMFR director Melinda Quintos de Jesus, asked us to line up for our "graduation". She was holding a bundle of white envelopes which to our surprise, was our sweldo
As she called out our names, she handed us an enevelope. And when i looked inside, it had 3500 phph in it. i thought that if ever i was going to get paid, i'd only get 500 bucks. well, i thought wrong. i haven't had a pleasant surprise for the longest time.
i loved my internship. period. i learned so many things, so much more i think, than i could have if i stayed with SMART Communications. Working at CMFR has taught me in a grounded way what the professors have tried to knock into my consciousness through theory. Deadlines are sacred, research is the basis of all stories and most important of all is that a journalist lives and dies with her inquisitive mind
. im planning to work for CMFR again this sem break, as a scanner for the Jamie V. Ongpin Awards. This time, the ay's gonna be more than Php 3, 500.

finally, an update
it's been eons since my last post, and i can't promise that this is gonna be a good one.
akelle arrived last sunday for a short vacation from his nueva ecija internship. we went around sm north after hanging out at his house. then we had coffee at figaro's, reminiscent of our first date one year and three months ago. wow. has it been that long?
anyway, he's back in NE again. he'll be back hopefully by wednesday next week.
internship... hmm... despite all the work, my internship's probably the thing that i look forward to everyday (what, with akelle not being here and me taking this lame ass elective called philippine pre history). so how's that ate eve (my supervisor)? i love it at cmfr. it's the people not treating you like a kid or a retard or both. it's how they recognize your capacity. and of course, it's the work. i've never felt this passionate about anything aside from my love life in ages. so i guess, this is a good sign. :D
CMFR just takes my mind off of that asshole jerk of a professor who's the complete opposite of my supervisors. The shithead treats everyone like we were in Cupertino not in UP. Nakakabobo siya, nakaka insulto pa.
He talks as if his subject were complicated. To that, all i can say is: nye!
I've never made the most faces in my life. If looks could kill lang talaga, he'd be dead by now.
okay that's about it. im not really a fan of long entries.

i just watched a program that "rehashed" the glory days of the Chicago Bulls. I almost cried remembering the days i was in like with Dennis Rodman, my very first in a long series of bad boys. i miss those days.
guess what i learned just this morining. i am a prospective
Philippine Daily Inquirer scholar. Wow. And that's like, the most prestigious thing you can ever be if you're a journ major. A PDI scholar like Kate and Jobert. The most widely circulated newspaper in the Philippines will be sending you to school and giving you a monthly stipend. it couldn't possibly get better than this.
but wait. it can. guess who nominated me to be a PDI scholar? No less than Sir Luis Teodoro. the Today columnist, former MassComm dean, Joma Sison's editor and friend, editor in chief of the Philippine Journalism Review and the Asian Journalism Review. i alway thought that only Ma'am Georgina Encanto would fall for my *charms*.
my favorite Teodoro story is when Sir Teodoro called me perceptive. i don't exactly remember why. i think i was just answering questions he posed to the class. these questions weren't hard, i bet more than half of the class knew the answers. it was just that, being who i am, i was the only person who was gutsy enough to answer out loud. maybe he became so amused because all of a sudden, he walked up to me and gave me the Oakwood issue of the Philippine Journalism Review. And he told me, with the whole class hearing: "that is for being so perceptive".
it just hit me that he meant it, that he really thought of me as "perceptive". I never even thought that he knew me outside the classroom.
wow. sir Teodoro. wow.
tomorrow, i'll be going to the Philippine Daily Inquirer office. Wish me luck. :D
four more days to go and akelle will be home! i miss my baby! :D
