Hell Week. It’s supposed to be my hell week this week due to numerous requirements stacked over the other. Papers, reports, presentations, whatnot. Two of those ended today, and around 4 more are scheduled next week. Today could be considered my hell day, since we reported in J100 (which will still continue next week) and we presented our Speech Choir in Comm3. Finally an unarguable statement by my prof in Comm3! He told us our presentation was the lightest and the most comical of all. Well, it was. =P
Something for a cause. I talked with Kuya Juvelan over lunch this afternoon, and he had some really great visions about his recent project concerning Social Apathy within the youth of today. It was a really timely and interesting project since just by looking to my right I can see how the next young person doesn’t care about what’s happening to our country today. We agreed that the basis for their apathy is lack of information (as what I have experienced), and that we can remedy it by making the youth aware of their surroundings. It’s really ambitious, since we’re targetting at least 10% of the youth population in the Philippines. But, as Kuya Juvelan said, patience is what we need so that we can succeed.
KSP. On another hand, I myself am cooking up something. I don’t want to talk about it yet but it’s also for a cause. I don’t want to pre-empt it since I’m still debating in my mind if I should pursue it because it’s a really tedious job. Let’s just say it’s borne out of my desperation to be published (I was only published in our HS organ once. It’s hard to enter a paper org in UP, and Youngblood will have to wait forever before I see my work on piece. What’s the remaining avenue for expression?).
Rustom is Gay. Hindi na’ko nagulat. Haha… nung binitin pa lang alam ko na kung ano ire-reveal nya eh. Nakakagulat (haha labo eh noh?!), first time ko makakita ng nag-open or more appropriately, nag-out. Ganun pala kahirap yun, sobrang umiyak daw siya ng 30 minutes. Ito namang si Keanna comic relief umihi pa sa damuhan! Haha… at least medyo nakikita ko na yung mga pinag-uusapan namin sa SocSci3, my another concrete example na. Ang nakakainis lang, sobrang nahirapan siya maglabas kasi restricted siya by the limits of society (as always). Ang daddy ko nga, tawa nang tawa (na ikinainis ko) tapos yung sister ko naman nagsasabi, “Ay bading!”. Well, hindi ko sila masisisi kasi yun talaga ang psyche o mentalidad ng mga Pilipino towards the in-between sexualities, pero what we all have to understand is that, sabi nga ng prof ko, hindi nila kasalanan na ganun sila. They’re ridiculed by society kasi nature nila yun, eh para mo na ring sinabihang “Ah nakakatawa ka tao ka kasi.” Hindi lang certain trait ang inaalipusta natin, pagkatao na. Hindi madali yun para sa kanila. Wala lang. Sana lang matauhan ang mga homophobe diyan, kasi mas nakakatawa sila kaysa sa mga homosexuals kasi makitid ang utak nila.
