CHROMAZONE: COA RecWeek 2011

June 27-July 1,2011

After numerous weeks of planning, of night meetings, of email and telephone frustrations, of pitches, McDo deliveries, RecWeek’s finally done. I seriously didn’t expect to be able to survive the demands of RecWeek, for a time OrSem, ACTM’s 1st GA planning and acads all at the SAME time. It was, without a doubt, the most stressful project I’ve ever been part of but at the same time, it was the most fulfilling and the one which brought much happiness after every meeting, after every day of RecWeek and after RecWeek itself. I was blessed to be a part of such a diverse set of people and I’m just so grateful that in the process of meeting a lot of new people, I was able to be of service to the many organizations in Ateneo.

For the whole week our call time was 6 am and it meant that I had to wake up at 5 am everyday all though there were instances that I didn’t sleep at all due to all nighters for that week. Monday, I accidentally cut OpMan to see the parade. And it was fun seeing people all prepped up for it! And because I am biased towards BC I’ll be placing some BC pictures here HAHA!

AJMA (joined only this year!)

MEcO with the BC CHeST (Michelle and Mico). I’d like to note that Coby became my friend because of the COA pitches HAHA!ACTM with the BC CHeST. Katie so cutie!Me with the DSLD reps! Irene, Zee and Martin! Everything about RecWeek was magical for me. I got to bond with a lot of people and it completely made me forget about worries acads-wise. I remember the time that I actually cried going back to the MVP Roofdeck because our Marketing pass was late and it was just so screwed all over. But when I arrived there, Tricia Javelosa, Jason, Mico and Charla were there ready to comfort me. Thank you guys and girls again for that.

RecWeek also made me see how passionate a lot of my friends are in their respective organizations. I saw a lot of them at the Roofdeck promoting their organizations, having booth shifts and some of them even convincing me to join their orgs! HAHA! Anyway here are more pictures!

Me with Maronne

Marco, an ASEC member. Despite being a JTAer he’s still lending a hand to ASEC which I joined this year!Ahiya KitKit! Forget what org he was promoting HAHA! HIHI. Kit’s probably the most sabaw CTM’12 JTAer I know! Never a dull moment when he’s around.

Veron and Kevin! LEX and MACA! I both signed up for both HAHA!Anaelle for CoSA! I also joined it this year. HAHA!Then there was this one time that a lot of people just roamed around the MVP roofdeck promoting their orgs and it was so cute that they all went to the stage and they were waiting for a photographer to take a picture of them! HAHA! I see Jayvee for LEX, Kevin for MACA, Vannah for TA, Arjo for Blue Rep, Cham for something HAHA! Mon for APAIR and El for PAC. Pat for ENTA then someone for ACTM :))

What made RecWeek more memorable would be that it was my first time to do Corporate Relations (getting sponsors) ever in my whole life! Haha! I was able to get M&M’s WHOPEE!!

Juan and Yves! Log deputy and Project head, respectively

Beng, Yves (again), Kim, Juan (again) and Kevin! then me with most of the members of the RecWeek Core! After Charla are Diana, Bianca, Marian, Kevin, EJ. Then after me are Kim, Shyla and Ingrid!

Would’ve added more pictures but this is already filled with a lot! I enjoyed RecWeek more and appreciated it more this year having been able to work behind the scenes. Can’t wait for next year’s RecWeek! 🙂

Someday it will lead me back to You

February 18, 2011

I look forward to Fridays for a bunch of reasons. One of which would be how free I am after 11:30 am. I got to do a lot of things that afternoon like I went to Ateneo High School to do NSTP stuff, I watched Mara’s Histo play, binge on JSEC Challenge food and drinks, and the DSLD/ASLA discernment.

When I buy prime lens, I’ll finally be able to take decent indoor shoots even if it’s dark. I like this shot actually since it’s kinda decent. Haha!

the guillotine really looked nice! 

Vien and Mara! I had no picture of them both looking at the camera! 

On my way back from the High School, decided to take a shot of the Church of the Gesu. It’s where the DSLD/ASLA discernment took place!
The experience was really different but at the same time enlightening. I felt like it was very grace-filled, to an extent and I feel fortunate I was able to experience it. Unfortunately, we weren’t complete so we’d have to do a second part another time.

Someday it will lead me back to You
