Two Days to Go and I Will Surely Miss Too Many People!

So I went to the Ateneo for the last time before I leave to, supposedly, go for ACLC Prayer Session and for AJMA Week but the PS was cancelled as well as my role for the AJMA Week. Blessing, really, because I got to spend some time with friends and to just enjoy the AdMU campus before the completion of the stupid SM Blue Residencesย before I walk the halls of ESC Rennes (Rennes School of Business). May I just say, it really reminds me of Rockwell! Haha!

Really happy I saw Goldie, Juan, Jason. The three ME sophomores from COA Special Projects who will I surely miss! I saw Suzie, Ken, Charla, Meryl, Irwin, El, among other COA people. I also saw a lot of other friends. AWW will really miss laughing and playing Monopoly Deal with them!

Quite the cutest thing that happened while I was in MVP. Paten gave me money to buy her a Longchamp. And Wenz happened to fetch Paten. Then I dragged Paten to see Froi. And we went to get Angelli and it was a reunion for Ohana! HAHA! too bad Stif and Stef weren’t there! For the former, obviously because he’s busy with thesis and the latter, because she’s a working girl now HAHA!

So yeah really happy I saw these people! Totally miss the Ohana vibe and how I can just be open and we can all just cry together and be happy ๐Ÿ™‚

I headed to Saint’s Alp Teahouse to, as promised, get milk tea and get some toast. I totally love their Black Tea with Milk! You should try it out! I headed to CTC 104 to crash a COA TD training for AMP on Marketing. There I got to reunite with Tricia Mallari. The woman who introduced me to the world of marketing! She’s also the Marketing Head of RecWeek for this school year!

It’s because of her that I am no longer afraid of Marketing! Haha! Thank you Tricia! Hope I enjoy JTA as much as you did!

And I look ugly here HAHA! Martin Tee! Probably one of my friends I get to talk to a lot online but I rarely see in campus. Happy I got to see him before I leave! Always take care and remember, SMEGsem ka! Don’t be too busy with everything! BUT also remember that we’re just here to support you all the way! ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a fun day and to top it off, as we JTA people are leaving, new people are coming to school!

The new security! I do hope they will be very much lenient! HAHA! I will defo miss our old security people in school ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Speeches. Platforms. and some Questions.

January 28, 2011

Ever since High School this time of the school year would always be one of my most anticipated ones (not counting the breaks, of course!) This time of the year would always be filled with discernment and surprises. It’s always nice to see people stepping up but it’s also nice to see people to step down to give opportunities for others.

Yesterday, we had our annual Miting de Avance where the 19 EB candidates presented their platforms and answered some mild, tough and very tough questions by the panel comprised of the incumbent EB (seniors and those not running: Roshni, Fara and I). We started at 4:30 and the presentations began!

Pre Miting de Avance Photos:

JonnDy and Froi! Two of my favorite MEAns! Congratulations for the successful elections!

Bien and MattLee, 2 of the many other ASLAns running for position. Apparently, the ACheS Miting de Avance was just on the room before us!

Miting de Avance time!

Fara and Mindy representing the CorRel Department!

Katz and Mon. Supposed to be a candid shot but Mon saw the camera…well how can you not notice a dSLR if it’s just 4 rulers away from you? Haha!

And now, the 19 EB Candidates!

JR and Isay were the first ones to face the Open Forum!

Krista, Liz, Dawn, Benny, Katie, Angel, Derrick, Ranamae.

Gayle, Gelo, Xea, Jonan, Mia, Ja, Bien, Al, Rem.


Paolo with his notebook filled with questions from cover to cover! Haha! Well not really, he just didn’t ran out of things to ask.

Despite the fact that the Miting de Avance was around 4 1/2 hours (4:30-9:00 PM), I can say that everything was worth it. Almost 2 1/2 hours of questions and answers. Some things were cleared up yet some things were left as is because of the lack of time. And I hope that the intense questions helped the candidates be more truly aware of the positions they’re running for. Hopefully ๐Ÿ™‚ So best of luck to all the candidates and to those who will not be elected, I hope that you will not lose passion in serving and leading the organization and its members.

 

And to end this post, I wish to impart you something I learned over the SemBreak:

“God calls you to the place where your DEEPEST GLADNESS and the world’s GREATEST HUNGER meet”
