Take (it) Off!

Last night, ACTM had its Seniors’ Sendoff: Take (it) Off! It’s not a super official project of the org (but I think it should be. Haha!) which we started planning for a few weeks ago. It’s funny because the idea started last year when some of the senior EB would tell us how nice it’d be if we threw a sendoff. Haha!

Vic, Trisha, Nikki, Isabelle, Bit

Iyay, Mindy, Kim hiding bottles of wonders. HAHA!

The girls again with Ap, Dennis and (insert name here) Haha! Didn’t get his name!

The members of Team Steamy were there to grace us with their IMC-ness! Nikki, Trisha, Paolo, Gayle and Xea! I think your cash prize should be added to the org’s funds!

Some of the Juniors present last night. Katie, Derrick, Vi-Ann, Cara, Xea, Mia, Rana, Gelo and Roshni!

The Freshmen! Mikko, Josh, Cheska, Andrea and the diva, JR!

Kim, Trisha and Jackie! Super happy that Jackie is now into photography!

Hans, Mindy, Iyay, Kim and Dennis!

Outgoing president, Gillian with Iyay and Kim! Hottest Female President nominee! Haha!

Of course, incoming president, Rem was present! The org will be in good hands this coming school year! 🙂

Isay was the “flight attendant” of the night.

Bien-Bien with her power to make anyone drink! Haha!
There are more pictures, of course which you can check out in my FB.

It’s one of the last moments I’d have with the seniors and I am super regretting not being able to mega bond with them. But I guess that gives me enough reason to go wild and whatever this coming March 5 in VERGE: Lucky Thirteen 🙂 Click the photo for the FB Event page. Everyone can go! 🙂

I can’t go emo for now because of how heavy this coming week is, but just you guys wait. I will try my best to make people at least shed a tear 🙂 See you guys this Saturday!

Take (it) Off!

So Much for Valentine’s

February 14, 2011

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

As we all know February 14 is that time of the year when people do mushy, sweet, lovey-dovey stuff for their loved ones. Roses here and there, balloons as well! It’s the perfect time of the year for flower shops and here in the Philippines, it’s that time of the year when Dangwa is just filled with people. This year wasn’t an exception.

Early in the morning, I already saw couples being sweet. I saw a girl being given this big teddy bear holding a heart. I saw a guy “proposing” to a girl. A couple PDA-ing. And a lot more! And yes, all these I saw in school. Totally sweet! Being single, I know that I wouldn’t get any surprises. I knew nothing would get me going that day… guess I was wrong! haha!

When I left my PE bag at my locker I noticed a very cute board with 2 bananas. Lo and behold! The TnT board was already set up! It’s super cute!! Kudos to the TnT Core! I swear to God, I texted a lot of people about it! It’s just something that any TnT would get giddy and excited about! Haha! Can’t wait for the sign ups and for the auditions!

The whole day was pretty uneventful actually except for a very short part of the day which I will keep to myself and to a few people who know about my situation. Haha! MOVING ON.

We had one of the last EB meetings ever as the EB ’10-’11. 😦 GOOODD I’ll super miss you guys 😦 It was one of the quickest meetings we ever had and one of the things that made it quite special would be the presence of the incoming EB for SY ’11-’12!

Hi Bien and hi Xea! Alyson and Rana are the Digital Workshops Project Heads. I still feel bad that they won’t be able to push through with the Flash 😦 I’ve been dying to learn! Ohwell, self learn this summer, I guess? And that’s pretty much my Valentine’s this year. Haha!

Oh and guess where I saw this! COVERED COURTS!

So Much for Valentine’s

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 🙂 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”
