Shade

by BALANA, MICHAEL JOHN

There is a reason why were placed on a particular block. One may not want it but again, it’s not about what you have but about what you do with what you have. Some people grow to live and spend good times with their co-artists that they’ll be spending at least their next 3 years of their lives with while some people (don’t grow) just opt to be indifferent.

At the end of the day we are all part of this group, block or err… family (that’s as cheesy as it can possibly get). We have the same professors, we have the same requirements and we have the same schedules. Soon we’ll all get dissolved and each be part of another block but each moments we’ve shared for the last 3 years isn’t something you could just throw away no matter how ugly it was.

See, what I learned about leading quite a number of times is that we will not be given the people we would like to spend our days with. Most of the time, we’ll be given those whom we don’t really like but we need to learn how to be sensitive enough to act accordingly. And when I say accordingly I mean acting like you’re a part of the team and not as a sole individual. Now I am challenging my friends, group mates (in whatever) and my block mates to stop living on your own and at least try to see how amazing it is to be part of such amazing circle of friends (specially those that you have spent your last 3 years with).

“Wala nang sipsip. Wala nang magpplastican. Kung ayaw mo edi ‘wag pero ‘wag mong idadamay ang mas nakararami dahil lang gusto mong magustuhan ka ng iisa lang namang tao.” (My wise adviser back in high once told that to our class.)

  1. I echo Micco’s insight “we will not be given the people we would like to spend our days with. Most of the time, we’ll be given those whom we don’t really like but we need to learn how to be sensitive enough to act accordingly. And when I say accordingly I mean acting like you’re a part of the team and not as a sole individual.” Much of these is about interpersonal intelligence which we all have to master. https://www.facebook.com/teacher.romcumagun/posts/621512064614205
