Three views about art

1. Commercial art 
2. Art for art sake 
3. Art as instrument of social transformation

Party people

 Malulupeeet ang mga Xmas party theme ng ibang mga kakilala ko:
- pajama party
- cowboy/cowgirl party
- safari party
- ala-star magic ball

Ano naman kaya ang pasabog nila sa susunod na taon?

Paputok

Hatid nito ay maraming uri ng polusyon:
- air pollution
- noise pollution
- land pollution

- thermal pollution
- light pollution

Sisimulan mo ang taon sa ganitong kondisyon? Napakasaklap naman.

random thoughts

- Huwag sayangin ang subject. Angkop na tagubilin ito sa bawat mag-aaral, at guro lalo na. #hay
- "Panagutan mo ako! Huhu!" - taghoy ng thesis sa taong pumili sa kanya bilang paksa #huwagkangbibitaw
- "Self-righteous people have purpose. They serve as bad examples." - Poldo Pasangkrus #maglahokaahuwagngbabalikpa
- FB was flooded again with food pornography - one of the many ways of reaffirming a household's middle class status. #pasikatpamore
- Financial insecurity and ignorance are perfect conditions for "get rich quick schemes" to abound. #madalanakayo

Sustainability question

Sustainable extraction
Sustainable production
Sustainable trade
Sustainable consumption
Sustainable disposal

But the overarching question is "sustainable for whom?".
Sustainability for the few is not development.

What to avoid in 2015

- processed food
- difficult people
- unsustainable consumption
- heavy load
- late night sleep
- toxic class requirements

Pagbati

Isang mainit at mapagpalayang pagbati ng Kapaskuhan sa lahat ng aking mga mag-aaral at naging mag-aaral na mga kapwa ko rin mag-aaral ng lipunang Pilipino.  Bilang mga aktibong kinatawan ng prinsipyo at karakter ni Oblation, sama-sama nating hangarin at pagtagumpayan ang pagkakamit ng isang lipunang masagana at makatarungan. Sana ngayong Pasko ang blessing ko'y kayo. Thank you, thank you, ang babait ninyo.

Mga eksena sa classcard distribution

- Pagbabalik-tanaw sa sistema ng paggagrado at pagbabantang may bumagsak
- Pagbalasa ng classcards
- Pagmamarka ng grado
- Paglagda bilang pagpapatotoo
- At ang kapanapanabik na kunyaring punitan ng classcard, sabay sabog ng lasog-lasog na piraso, at ang kabang hatid nito sa mga unang nakasaksi
- At ang hagikhikan ng mga beterano na sa mga ganitong tagpo taun-taon
