A Source of Pride and Jubilation?

It has almost been public knowledge that I have not finished college. Though I tried, it seems to have the penultimate power to free itself from my grasps.

Just last May 30, I graduated with a degree in Nursing. I thought to myself, finally, i can escape the premises of the classroom; my mama - as melodramatic as most moms are - can have her day to shed bucketfuls of tears and do her own little drama moment; and I can finally, look for work and be self-sufficient.

However, I tried to resist the idea of my family having a big celebration in honor of this graduation day. Trust me, I did all my best for it not to push through. I do not have to go through the details of it - I'm a theatre person and you know what we do. Hehe.

As you can see, my efforts were futile - so futile that our quaint little home has been swarmed with relatives, friends and neighbors eager to extend me their congratulations. Lots of kisses landed on my cheeks, lots of hand were offered to shake and lots of smiles and even, laughter thrown around the place on my behalf.

If I were 21 years old, I would have felt okay with it. However, I am years past the age of graduation. It can be a little awkward.

Through it all, I sported the best persona I can, smiling without any care in the world. Of course, who would not be happy of having a () GPA and a medal to boot.

After the smoke has subsided, the real task is finding the best job. I've been searching and constantly looking. There were sure shots; there were uncertainties. I am just waiting for my options to present themselves and choose the best career path.

Graduations are really surreal and ironic. Now, I know it.

Are Singing Contests in Doom?

Being a frustrated singer myself, I have constantly weighed in my mind whether to audition in the various TV shows offering to jump start anybody's career in singing. Aside from nationwide fame it brings, the pride of having to sing to wider audience showcasing the best vocal talent you currently have is in itself a great honor.

That is why, the Pinoy Dream Academy has always been lingering at the back of my mind. If not for the very hectic nursing schedule during the days of auditions, I would have mustered enough resolve and storm to the nearest audition venue possible. However, I did not because I did not have the luxury of time.

Of the recent developments, two scholars from Cebu have made it to the school for singers. Trust me, I am equally proud of them to have gotten that far.

But there are some questions I have long to ask about this talent search cum reality show.

I would have to put it off for some more days though. My mind is in a daze and I need to carefully collect my thoughts.

Ang Pamumundok at Ang ZTE

Noon pa man, itinatanong ko sa aking sarili kung bakit ang iilan sa atin ay mas piniling iwanan ang umuusbong na buhay sa kabihasnan at ipagpalit sa mas delikadong pakikibaka sa bundok? Bakit mas gugustuhin nilang sa maya’tmayay tumakbo mula sa tumutugis na pwersa ng pamahalaan? Bakit itataya nila ang kanilang mga hiram na buhay para sa isang kawsang tila yata hindi sineseryoso ng ating pamahalaan? Ngayon, unti-unti nang nagkakahubog ang mga sagot sa mga tanong na bumagabag minsan sa aking kamalayan.

Sa kasagsagan ng tila hindi mamatay-matay na NBN-ZTE scandal, hindi ko lubos maisip na ang isang pamahalaang tinagurian pa naman sanang isang demokrasya ay papayagang sanang mangyari o tila yata makalusot ang isang kasunduang sa simula pa lang ang pinutakti na ng butas. Totoo man o hindi, ang lumulobong bilang ng mga saksi ay hindi maitatawa. Ang kumakapal na pahina ng mga ebidensiya ay magsisilbing patunay na marahil ang kaunting nakakaalam ay tinatamasa sana ngayon ang matatawag nilang komisyon. Ang diretsong o hindi tuwid na pag-amin ng mga nasasangkot ay hindi sana mangyayri kung hindi nagkaroon ng aberya ang plinanong kasunduan.

Ako’y nanalangin na ang isang malaking panloloko sa tao at paglulustay sana sa pera ng bayan ay hindi nangyari sa nakaraan, nangyayari sa kasalukuyan o mangyari sa hinaharap. Sa dinamirami nang kabulastugang napatunayan, anong kasiguruhan na hindi ito mangyayaring muli? Tila yata wala na itong patutunguhan..

Sa gitna ng pagtaas ng presyo ng bilihin, hindi isang ZTE scandal ang ating kailangan. Isang pagbabago sa gobyerno, pag-iiba ng pagkatao ng mga nakaupo, at pagpapadami sa diretsong ginagampamnan ang kanilang tungkulin inihabilin sa kanila ng mamayan. Kung hindi, dadami at dadami parin ang mamumundok! Madaragdagan ang magiging kalaban ng gobyerno sa bundok man o sa patag.

Sana naman ang pagbabago’y mangyari sa lalong madaling panahon.

P.S. Salamat kay JCBATAN para sa imahe.
