Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hi! I'm sorry if I haven't been able to really reply to all the readers' comments, but I want you all to know that I am reading them, and I feel very blessed to know that there really are people like you who also have strong opinions about the different things that happen from day to day. Kahit simpleng alimango lang, nakukunan pa rin natin ng aral 'di ba? Thank you for all your comments. They inspire me to write about more relevant things. I know I haven't been able to post regularly (I have lots of ideas, but sometimes I just can't seem to follow them up with a good essay), so I am asking for your help to suggest, through the comments section, some topics you may want to appear in this blog, that we can discuss and possibly learn from. I've been writing and writing and writing without actually really responding to what others think (in my writing, at least), and I plan to change that. Keep reading, and feel free to comment, and suggest. Thank you so much for the help. By the way, to answer most of the questions in the comments section, I'd like to give a little update on what I've been doing (which isn't really characteristic of this blog, but I'll do it). I just recently graduated from the Ateneo High School, and yes, Robi Domingo is my batchmate (Support him ah.). I did not graduate valedictorian (My classmate Viko Fumar was the vale.), but I was luckily able to graduate with First Honors. I am an incoming college freshman now in the Ateneo, and I will be taking up Management Engineering (think Math in business). I was luckily able to pass some schools in the States (just like what Tito Edu announced), namely Georgetown and Fordham universities, but I chose to stay in the Philippines for very personal reasons. But don't worry, any decision would have been a fun-filled one anyway. So there. Read on.

Haha. Mikee, honestly, Robi reminds me of you whenever I watch PBB Teen Edition Plus. =) You're both smart. Unfortunately for Robi, he wasn't able to attend your graduation. :( Anyway, I would like to congratulate you for passing Georgetown, Fordham, and Ateneo. You're really a true-blooded Atenean. I hope to see you on the UAAP days this year, although I belong in the other side! Haha. =)

yehey! first to comment?! hehe! kudos mikee! you don't have to be the vale..to prove that you're intelligent or what. oh! I thought you will be pursuing your higher education at the univ of the phil. but anyway, u passed georgetown univ and fordham univ!! woow! another achievement for you my dear! =)

hmm.. can you touch the topic about 'hate'? oh! sorry for it's a dark topic. I just want to pick some positive insights through your entries. Hate is turning my life upside down..I don't know wat to do right now..I am covered with animosity and abhorrence. I can't have a bright outlook in life bcoz of so much hate.. I feel towards everything and everyone in this world. Can you do that favor for me?? Thank you very much!!!

You inspire me :)

You inspire me :)

Mikee said...

sige, pag-iisipan ko yung hate. pero mukhang masasaklawan yan noong next entry ko ne "Question number 1." To answer the other question, parang summa cum laude ng college ang equivalent ng first honors sa ateneo high school.

jos said...

mikee, do you have a friendster [account]?? =)

Like you do with vichelle..you really inspire me..us! Thank you!

sana sagutin mo ang tanong ko. hmm..

Mikee said...

well, i do have a friendster account that's busted. hahaha

Mikee said...

but jos, what makes you hate? expound naman diyan.

jos said...

Hmm.. what makes me hate? ano nga ba..hehe! sorry kasi isa akong komplikadong tao.. bilang lang ang nakakintndi sa pagkatao ko. hindi ko tlga maipaliwanag ang narrmdman kung hinanakit o sama ng loob. Nakatawa kahit hindi naman dapat. Napakagulo tlga!siguro isa na yan. gets mo b? tsk!

ang mga tao sa paligid ko unti-unti ko ng kinamumuhian..o tuluyan na siguro.

Ang pamilya ko! pinamumukha nila sa akin na isa akong kabiguan (black sheep sa pamilya kung baga). imbes na iencourge o suprthan nila ako sa mga salita nila..naddscourge 2ly ako. ang sakit ng pkirmdm eh pamilya ko tpos sila pa ang gumgwa ng gnyn sakin. Sila nga ang dahilan kung bakit ang pananalig k sa diyos ay humina. And I hate them for doing that!=(

Sa buhay ko ngayon parang ang lahat ng mga bagay (tao actually) ay ipinagkakait sa akin. Nrrmdmn k 2loy ang sama kong tao para gawin ito ng Diyos sa akin. Yung mga kaibigan k na nagppsaya sa akin (note: I don't have a close-knit family) at tanging nakkilala sa pagkatao ko at umiintindi ay nawala na din. Pgktpos ng hayskul prng nagmaliw na ang pinagsmhan namin. Ako ang taong nagpphalaga tlga ng kaibigan kaya sobrang sakit na ngyon eh nwala na sila. Yung mga matalik ko namang kaibigan eh nagkasyota lang ganun malamig na kami sa isa't-isa.

Ang sarili ko minsan kinaiinisan ko kung bakit ba ako ganitong tao..mahirap maging isang katulad ko. I hate myself na din. Nasa akin tlga ang problema..marami pa tlga akong gus2ng sabihin sa'yo. Nahihiya na tuloy ako..ang dami ko na palang nasulat at nasabi tungkol sa sarili at buhay ko..parang nagppcounsl ako. hehe!

sana naintindihan mo ang sinulat ko dito..at sana masnaintindihan mo ang pagkatao ko. Hindi namn ako masamng tao eh..sabi nila pero bakit ganito?! hahay!

Salamat sa pagbabasa (kung basahin mo man). ehehe! Sana maikwento ko sa'yo ang lahat2.

Thank you! poacenxa na ha.. ang dramtic namn eh..EMO b ako!? haha!

jOs said...

Wala kang balak ayusin ang account mo?

gusto sana kitang i-add. hehe!

Mikee said...

alam mo jos, maraming tao na ang nakaranas ng pinagdadaanan mo. isipin mo na lang, sa milyong taong nabuhay sa mundo, hindi bago ang nararanasan mo, at pinagdaanan na ng iba, which means na kayang kaya mo 'yang sitwasyon mo kung gugustuhin mo lang talaga. ang galit at kalungkutan naman, mapipili mo kung kailan mo gusto maramdaman, gaya ng ibang damdamin, kaya nasa sa iyo lang din kung paano mo titignan ang sitwasyon mo. pagsubok ba, o sumpa?

Atenista said...

I think it's the wrong decision for you to have chosen to pass on Georgetown and Fordham.

You could have gotten better education and training there than in Ateneo.

Babalik ka din naman sa Pilipinas, sana yun nalang pinili mo para maka-contribute ka naman sa knowledge transfer. Mas malaki ang impact nun sa country natin. Hindi mo ba naisip yun?

Ateneo education is not as great as you may think it is.

Pero it's your life. Live with your mistakes.

Looking forward to not seeing you in campus.

Mikee said...

relax, i know what i'm doing.

Vichelle said...

heheh.. natawa naman ako sa reaction mo kay atenista.. hehehe :p

pluma said...

wow! congrats for passing those exams abroad... and staying here in the Philippines will always be a fine decision. No place like home. and besides ikaw lang naman may alam ng "personal reasons" mo. So study hard and inspire harder :) (pressure!)

jos said...

i'm just confused about that "first honor and valedictiorian" thingy.
it means that parang mas mataas pa yung first honor kaysa sa valedictorian?

(^^,)

Faye said...

you don't only look good but you make others (like me) feel good, as well. keep it up.^^
