Dear Future UUV Members

Standard

I have always been entirely honest about how I was just “forced” into joining the organization and becoming a volunteer. And if that was considered to be a mistake, I know for sure that I’ll take the crown if I was asked the same question as Venus Raj. I know a number of you would join the organization just because your friends did or you wanted to fill your resume with affiliations, etc. Bottomline is, a lot of you will unknowingly join an organization fighting for such a sensitive cause. Trust me, that’s the basic step.

And to my future JVCs, my god. Do you really have to scare the hell out of me like this? I, too, was just “forced” into joining the program. This one, to be honest, was because my friends did and that is not a problem. Primarily, my purpose was to become an officer. Well, of course, it’s because that is what the program is for.

But in the end, the advocacy grows in you. As you participate in more events, your desire to serve kids heightens. And gradually, you forget about your “selfish” aims to become an officer or add an affiliation for your CV and you slowly change your goals into attending more events, going home smiling knowing you’ve made a kid happy. And I swear, you’ll long for being around kids, talking to them, laughing with them. They’ll become part of you – piece by piece.

Your initial purposes don’t matter because you will eventually set aside those once you’ve started serving. What’s essential is your initiative to join and let UST UNICEF Volunteers do the rest for you just like what they did to me. I have always been so thankful for God leading me to my UUV family. Yes, I feel guilty whenever I think of how I was led to it but maybe it was God’s way of letting me know that it’s ok to take risks. The present though is always much important than the past and I will give back to the organization by serving twice as much as I did last year. Thank you, UUV and thank you Lord for everything!

The Contractual Pros And Cons To Falling In Love

Standard

Thought Catalog

Section A: Appropriate Public Displays of affection

1. Hand holding

Pro: Your ineffectual fist will fit easily in his, as his hands are substantially larger. His mugs radiate heat as if they had a handle and were filled with chai tea. He will squeeze your hand just a smidgen tighter when walking past a questionable individual. You will inevitably feel safe.

Con: You will be rendered incapable of locating a worthwhile resting point for your hands while walking in his absence. You will fight the urge to grab a random stranger’s hand, if only to feel some phalanx warmth. You will feel a smidgen more vulnerable when walking past a questionable individual. You will miss him. 

2. Leaning Against His Arm/Chest

Pro: As you lean into him he turns his body towards yours and you are able to sink into complete acceptance. You feel wanted by him and the stability…

One said you had no clue at all and another one gave me a result: “He knows for sure.” Read a few articles and forced us to be those, forced you to have done such things. Closed those which wrote about things I didn’t want to read – those things that would bring me back to reality. Answered just so I could have the result I wanted. And how does one forget that site which told me you “L-word” me. Not. Just a few more  days and I’ll be over it not unless you Harvey Milk quote me which you will never ever in your wildest dreams do. (And you rarely sleep) So, this is how it feels.

The Cat and the Bag

I won’t let you out unless you tell me clearly you want to. That you specifically request for air to breathe ’cause you won’t hear me sigh. I’ll love it and I can finally have this weight I carry as heavy as a feather. I won’t let you out even if you want it out. I won’t let you out if it’s escape that you want. I want you out, now.

I Fell Asleep Cursing You

Standard

And how I have been carried away too deep by my fantasies. How I have broken my rule on love to not live with daydreams and hopes which I always tell my friends to avoid them having a broken heart to mend. How could have I done that and I didn’t even see myself getting too involved with this impossible thing I have been living on in my dreams. I don’t even have the right to curse you but how could you? I know you already know and I know you think this is the right way to do. You do not practice what you preach, bitch. And that post that was originally meant for anyone else but you will now be all for you. One year more until the end of you. I will never look into you eyes again, ever. I hate you and I hate myself even more.

Let her rest in peace.

May kanya-kanyang opinyon ang mga tao kaya pabayaan niyo nalang siya. Ate, hindi po pare-pareho ang estado ng mga tao sa buhay. Walang magulang ang gustong nahihirapan ang anak niya. Walang magulang ang titigil sa pagkayod hangga’t kaya pa. Meron pong mga panahong tinatawag na “hindi talaga kaya.” Kung nagmamalaki naman po pala kayo, edi magbigay nalang po kayo ng pera sa pamilya kaysa sa ipambayad niyo sa kuryente niyong ginamit sa pagpost nung mga sinabi mo. Ate, hindi ko alam kung namatayan ka na o hindi pero sana po malaman ninyo na kung ikaw po nawalan, comfort ang kailangan mo at hindi panghuhusga. Sa mga bashers naman po ni ate, alam niyo naman palang nagpapapansin na, bakit niyo pa pinapatulan? Matuto po tayong rumespeto ng pananaw ng iba dahil ang posts naman po nating lahat online ay nananawagan ng suporta at hindi paninira. Kung mali, edi mali. Para sa kanya tama yung ginagawa niya. Pero kung totoo ngang nagpapapansin lang siya, edi wag niyo nang pansinin para masupalpal siya. Hindi tayo magkakapareho ng opinyon, hindi tayo pare-parehong kayang makatulong, hindi tayong lahat kayang makaintindi sa nararamdaman ng naiwan niya pero pare-pareho tayong marunong magdasal.
