September last month, a group of green plated tricycle drivers and their tricycle units placed themselves in front the General Santos City Hall. They were protesting about the law which was recently promptly put effective by the Land Transportation Office. They rode fast around the city and blew their horns non-stop as they passed by.
In my longest stay in Gen. Santos for 19 years, I have been dissatisfied with the lack of prompt effective act on public transportation such as the tricycle unit. Holistically, the drivers were undisciplined and abusive on the road, their plate numbers were not ‘yellow’ which signifies that they are private vehicles who take passengers and do not pay their supposed taxes. But, now I can see CHANGES. I see PROGRESS. I have been praying for this to happen. Thank you God.
Yes, the LTO’s (Land Transportation Office) move made lots of negative criticisms, replies, and complaints but, this is for the betterment of the city as a whole. It makes the people disciplined, it promotes systematic approach to application of laws, and deliberately has a goal in mind. I applaud the LTO for a Job-well-done. Keep up the good work!
Thank you LTO! Thank you for the visible appearances on the streets, thank you for acting and making a great progress on the problem, passengers are greatly happy and are also starting to get disciplined. Laws helps people orderly if its done the right way.
Celebrating the City’s Tuna Festival which started on September 01, 2016 until this first week of September. Now, enjoying the City’s Holiday, September 5, 2016.
I enjoyed the Fest actively as I supported a friend for her 1st PAGEANT ever joined; Miss Tourism 2016. This girl is a course-mate classmate. Proud Friend here as she finishes off 3rd Runner Up in her PAGEANT Career. As she said to me before, it was an opportunity she grabbed to get out of her comfort zones. She’s a Pro-singer and now a Pageant Queen.
Have a great TUNA Fest Generals!
Amidst the bomb threats, we continue the celebration!
As a young leader, I face challenges and hardships regularly as I continue my schooling. These involve; different and difficult people. My environment has always been my influence. The struggles I face are constant. I am battling with Wants, Desires and Responsibility. Everyday, I want to give up. I’ve lost touch with my priorities and the voice in me.
Now, all this time, I realized that I haven’t been mindful, mindful that I had a choice. An independent Choice. I have a mind that I can control. God’s greatest gift is my mind. Here comes change.
I want to change. Change is difficult but with the right mindset, change is possible.
RENEW. REBIRTH. RESTORE I am my own enemy. Acceptance of faults. Doing what is right. I am on my way to change.
God is my influence. My morals are my influence, my friends are my influence, all that, my Mind is my greatest influence.
LOVING AND FORGIVING. It’s not being naive. It’s doing what’s right. SAYING SORRY. It’s not being naive, It’s mending the broken bond between people. CONFRONTATION. It’s not bad, it makes people know their behavior and if they had fault. Don’t keep it. Let them know.
My mind is my mind. I need to think, to do, to believe, to listen, to accept fault and to love.
Though! It’s not that fulfilling yet because I still have to finish my OJT compilation and other things to do. Such as: Notarization, reminding supervisors and other student-ish stuff needed to complete. But, It was a blast! I will form the experience in to a one-liner sentence.
It was a very hands-on work with heavy pressure-expectation, mending bond with friends, brain and patience-cracking experience!!haha
Different kind of emoticons could express what I felt in my OJT Experience!
For starters, I enrolled for Psych 29 this summer 2016 for Psychology Internship. We are given 280 hours to complete within 2 months.
We have 3 settings which included: Industrial Setting, Clinical Setting, and School Setting with each 100 and 80 hours separately . So, I hurriedly prepared my resume, which was highly criticized by ma’am ——! anyways, I did my best to make it look presentable. With my friends, we took pictures of 2x2s for the resume and were all worked up of getting hired or not. Kinda stressful but, Challenge Accepted!!
The companies I’ve worked for are the following:
For CLINICAL SETTING – NDRC/New Day Recovery Center in Lanang, Davao City
For INDUSTRIAL SETTING – SOCOTECO II/South Cotabato Electric Cooperatives, Inc.
For SCHOOL SETTING – NDDU Guidance and Testing Center
Long story short, I have to cut it down, It was..
The Best educational and stressful SUMMER I’ve ever had in my life! 😀
