Through a Juvenile Mind

angelmariesperez

Since the day I was born,

Daddy went away,

He swore he’s always love me,

but said he couldn’t stay.

 

Days turned into weeks

And weeks turned into years,

I barely see my father,

He barely saw my tears.

 

He never read me bedtime stories,

Nor tucked me in at night,

He rarely showed up for my birthdays,

But I’ve always hoped he might.

 

He missed my first day in kindergarten,

As well as all my school plays,

He didn’t witness how smart I’ve become,

My report cards full of A’s.

 

Though I’ve been looking forward to the future,

Can’t seem to look past the past.

Guess I’ll never completely understand,

How do you fix a shattered glass?

The puppet

“You better study hard now so you could have a good job in the future! Act like a normal adult! Work hard so you could earn a lot of money! Pay your taxes! Vote for your leader! Believe in what the media tells you! Follow the trend! Have faith in your God! Obey the law! Send your children to school! Eat “healthy”! Save for your old age! Watch television! Spend all your money on things you don’t need! Spend more time for work than with your children! Ignore people in need! Settle for a higher paycheck than what your dream job could ever offer! Drink coffee! Live in fear! Die in fear!”

Says the voice inside her dream. She wakes up, eyes staring blankly, face pale as ever. She realizes she’s all alone- not that today is any different from the other days. She gets ready for school, takes a bath, dress in her proper uniform to arrive just in time for class. She reads on her way to school for today would be a special day, it’s examination day. She finishes just in time to hand over her papers. There are no words coming out of her mouth, but a tear escaping her eyes as she walks down the hallway. The other students from her same building just walking past her, barely noticing her presence. Some laughing loudly, talking about how they could pass their courses with flying colours, talking about how to celebrate the commencement of flipping through pages, some excited, most nervous. She goes home, switched the television on and stare at it ’til the rest of her afternoon. She goes back to her own world where no one is around but her and the voice..

The Blogosphere, in my opinion

hbffasfsaf

It is the conglomeration of the networks of people’s thoughts, activities, photos, films, and other media of people that can be found online. It is an unlimited interconnection of ideas, holding no barriers or whatsoever. The blogosphere is a broad network of all online data – everything from food, to fashion, to culture, to health, to news, to travel, and latest trends, all based from entries made in a social networking site by individuals around the globe.

The world wide web, unlike humans, have unlimited number of storage for new data. Humans, having certain limitations, cannot process all information entered from every single human being in the planet in one collection. With that said, humans cannot dare compare itself with the information highway. Imagine thinking and telling it to a bazillion people right away, simultaneously, manually. That is how the information highway works- ultra fast. With just a click, you can share everything, and I do mean everything to the world. Yes, technology has gone far away from what we imagined 20, 50 years ago. But is this advancement enough to replace the old with the new? Is humanity really moving forward with these technologies or rather taking a huge step back?

A glimpse in the actual industry

Last August 16, our block had the privilege to witness an actual shooting of some scenes from a movie. Two of the actresses we saw were Marian Rivera and Ryzza Mae Dizon. But seeing these stars up close rather than just from a television screen is just a bonus- for me, the most thrilling part of the experience is the actual happenings behind the camera. By observing the said event, I got a small glimpse of how it actually is in the industry- how the camera rolls, the director, the actors, the crewmen and their equipments. The activity affected me in a way that it somehow enlightened me and gave me a more concrete idea of the life in field I am currently studying.
