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! 😀
I’m having a hard time being kind and compassionate towards tricycle drivers. It’s hard. But, they too are victims of their own desires and needs. Unconscious of what they have been doing because of lack of guidance and supervision from the local Government. Seminars can be done, proper order can be done and the commitment to give better services to the community. There are so many ways and creative plans that can be implemented. Is it about politics? Number of votes? I don’t know but that is what I heard.
They’ve dominated the roads, ways and even the floors of General Santos City. Going back 4 years ago, I have always been riding together with them because they are the means of transportation. I have good and bad experiences with them. Right now, the situation got worse and they are populating the whole city. It could be nice if both commuters and drivers will have good relationship with each other but that idealism is only applicable to some. It’s a dream a commuter will always have.
The pressures of daily competition cause hostility among drivers. It drives them mad. The built aggression is thrown to commuters. Then commuters will also be hostile towards drivers. It has now become a cycle. A person only wants to earn for a living but, must be done in a proper way.
I, a college student of a known school have always been deviant towards drivers. I protect my rights and if simple discussion is not enough I tend to argue until an agreement is made. I know it decreases my energy but they need to know what is right and wrong. I have been angry long enough. Thanks to my faith that I have been walking, I fight my mind to continue praying for peace and compassion towards drivers, to talk politely with them.
My question is, when will be the people will make an effort to get themselves educated if the government does not? Will people remain as they are? Stay ignorant and angry? Let’s do the effort and back ourselves with compassion and knowledge about these things.
We conducted a study on Light color to emotions and our variables, primary colors; red, blue, yellow. It was fun really and also hard work. I do really want to thank these guys (above) for the most of the work. What did I do exactly? ah yes, presence and participation. The human power which would include running, walking and buying. Though I’ve done some research. It will not equal with the guys who had the time and work.
