Panahon ng Pangungutya

Ang dami-daming tao sa mundo, at ang dami daming pwedeng gawin sa mundo. Ngunit dahil sa kahirapan at kaingitan, ay madami din namang nalululong sa chismis at mga gawain paninira ng kapwa.

Isa sa mga ayaw ko ay ang magsabi ng bagay na alam nating ikasisira ng iba. Madaming dahilan kung bakit nagagawa ng tao ‘to. Pwedeng inggit o para lang makaganti dahil sa ugaling naipakita o ipinakita ng taong sinisiraan nila. Ngunit tama ba talagang gawin natin ito? Tama bang siraan at maging sanhi ng pagbagsak ng taong iyon ang mga hindi magandang lumalabas sa bibig natin?

Minsan, sobrang nagiging makasarili tayo na okay lang na bumagsak ang ibang tao, basta tayo hindi. Ugali iyan ng karamihan. Mas magandang makitang bumagsak sa kinakatayuan ang isang taong mataas ang lipad kaysa magtrabaho para mapasa sa paglipad. Ika nga ni Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, sa kanyang interview kay Boy Abunda, “it’s so easy to watch a queen fall“. Pero tama ba talaga ito? Tama nga ba na maging ugali ito ng madaming tao?

Madalas akong tumingin at maglibot sa Facebook dahil wala rin naman akong magawa minsan. Pero isang gabi, nagbasa ako ng comment box sa isang news page at nakita ko ang punong-puno ng puna kay Maxine Medina galing sa mga kapwa ko Pilipino. Hindi ako fan ng Miss Universe, and never have I watched the entire show pero tama bang pulaan ang babaeng lalaban para sa Pilipinas? Sa sobrang daming pwede gawin o sabihin, puro mga mali pa ng tao ang nakikita ng lahat. Alam kong ugali na ito (matagal na) ng madaming tao ngunit hindi ko matanggap na instead of supporting Maxine, people are criticising her appearance and her grammar. Minsan sa sobrang galing natin tumingin nang mali ng ibang tao, nakakalimutan natin na may mali rin sa atin. Walang tao na tinuruan ng tamang asal simula pagkabata, ang gustong makipagkaibigan sa taong pala pula at mali lamang ang nakikita sa ibang tao.

Ang dami kong nakita sa comment box na mga nanay, mga tatay, mga guro at mga taong dapat tumatayong “role model” sa mga bata ngunit nakikita ang ugali sa comment box, nakikita kung paano mangutya ng ibang tao. How are we supposed to teach children good conduct kung tayo din ay hindi marunong panindigan ang mga sinasabi naten, at hindi kayang magpakababa.

Filipinos are known to be hospitable. Sa sobrang hospitable naten, nakakalimutan na nating maging hospitable sa mga kapwa natin. Sana. Sana naman, turuan natin ang mga kapwa natin na kung walang magandang sasabihin, mas magandang wag na lang magsalita o idaan sa bagay na makikinabang yung tao at hindi magiging dahilan ng pagdudusa nito.

Sobrang affected lang ako sa mga nakikita ko. This is not about that Miss Universe, baka sakaling maisip niyo na avid fan ako ng competition na yon.

Kung may mali akong nasabi, pwede niyo akong icorrect at hindi na lang ishare dahil correcting is learning .. and learning is growth.

PAPJA 2017

This January 20-21, our school attended an event for all Psychology majors (minors) a.k.a PAPJA. It was our second time to attend this kind of event, and we somehow enjoyed our overall stay.

— of course I enjoyed PAPJA because of my so called “family” or the “sleepy heads” —

Part of the event was picking and attending a workshop on the second day. My friend and I attended a workshop about playback theatre, and it was an outstanding experience. Ms Joan Valbuena, our speaker, made us all do certain activities that was embarrassing at first, pero habang tumatagal okay na siyang gawin.

can you see me? beside me is our speaker

— She was so confident about her knowledge; she knows what she was talking; she’s so passionate about her work (playback theatre). I like her, obvious ba? Haha!

2017.

Hi 2017!

Processed with VSCO with 4 preset

I have no plans on doing the 2016 review since nothing good happened to me last or sadyang mas nangingibabaw lang ang hindi maganda.. but I have to say na madami naman din nangyaring maganda sa buhay ko last year…pero going back what I mentioned, I have no plans on writing them, pero I’ll be sharing few of my emotions and reactions towards those things.

2016 came so fast, and now we are in 2017.

I am definitely ready for 2017. I received a planner from a review center we invited last month and bought one that I have been planning to buy since last November.

Planning wasn’t really part of my personality. I just want to do things ng biglaan, pero I realized how this world works – how the corporate and professional world does not do o umaasa sa mga biglaang events, everything should be planned,  everything should be scheduled (2-3 months  before the activity-project-event).

 

So as a student, or should I say..soon to be an employee, I should start the art of planning since not all preparations can be done overnight, or a day or two, ‘di ba? Haha!

I listed 3 goals for 2017. Yes 3 goals. Last year, I listed 20+ goals, unfortunately, I only completed half of them because of the tragedy that happened (I have no intention on blaming the situation, sorry). So this year, I am planning to focus on my main 3 goals and walk towards the right path at hindi yung paiba-iba.

I also listed 5 resolutions that I wanted to change for the better of myself. Along with my goals I won’t be saying nor sharing them to other people because I watched talks that says “show it not say it”. So for this year, my  goal would be to let my goals speak for itself not my blabby mouth.

I hope that everyone would have a fruitful and healthy 2017.
Focus on doing, not planning and saying.
Stick to your plans, and always choose your priorities.
