On a Stormy Thursday

It's quiet. My coffee is hot. It's quite early for me. The sky is gray. It is gloomy and there's coolness in the air. For the next hours I'll be doing school stuff. My computer is busted. There has been a power interruption, I heard a blast and I think it came from the CPU. What the heck! I've just reformat my computer last week and the thought that something has gone wrong again upsets me. I've just transferred my files there and last night I downloaded files that I'll be needing…, so now I'm downloading it all again (*sigh).

The game 2 has been cancelled. Rumor has it that it'll resume on Saturday. Of all day, why does it have to be this Saturday?! We'll be having quizzes on two of our subjects and a laboratory on java. I hope that we can convince our professors. I really wanted our team to win and bagged the championship and I wanted to be there when it happens. I've been faithfully watching every game of the UST Growling Tigers and indeed they've gone so far. They've exceeded everyone's expectation. Last Sunday, they've put up a great fight and almost won game 1 of the best-of-three series. They gave Ateneo a hard time and I'm sure they'll be more aggressive this coming Saturday. That's it for now. Go USTe!!!!

It's Monday already! When I woke up this morning, my thoughts were everywhere. It feels like there are lots of things to do and I don't even know where to begin. Oh well, life is really getting busier each day. I hope that this will calm soon. Ok, so going back... I hate worrying about my loads so I said to myself, 'Hey why don't you update your blog!', and tadaa now you're reading my post.. Haha! Anyway, read on...

Last Friday we went to UP to attend the Philippine Youth Congress in Information Technology, which is held every year. I must say that last year's youth congress was better than this year. The only talk that I like this year's event was that of Hon. Francis G. Escudero. During his talk, all eyes and ears were focused on him and there are applause and clapping every now and then. A lot of students took pictures of him. He is a good speaker. He talks spontaneously. I agree on what he said about the condition of our country... the politics, our economy, discipline of the people, etc. He even shared with us his prayer unfortunately I wansn't able to write it down. I might search for it in the Internet any time soon =D. (Sigh) There's nothing much to write... so just take a peek on the pics...

Gawi Jives for Five

UST Salinggawi Drives for Five Read the full story here.This season's Cheerdance Competition, the UST's premier dance group, The UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, once again, for the fifth time in a row, dominated the Araneta Coliseum and declared the Champion. Click Here to watch Gawi's performance. Gawi sets the trend and it is evident on the routine of other schools except UP. This year's competition was really intense. Some schools have improved a lot. I like UP's routines but I guess perfect timing and synchronization were not there that's why FEU got the second place. Here's the list of the winners from 1995-2006. I got this from Wikipedia.

1995 - UST ~ UP ~ FEU ~ Ateneo ~ Adamson ~ UE ~ DLSU ~ NU
1996 - UST ~ FEU ~ UP ~ Ateneo ~ Adamson ~ UE ~ DLSU ~ NU

Yesterday I went in Araneta with Christian, Jam, Roy, Cheska, and Weng to watch the game between our team (UST) and UE. It was so much fun! The first and second quarter we were up by twelve or so but when third quarter took place, I became disappointed with the UST players. How can they let those bloody warriors get close to their score and worse outdo them by four. Hay! Things get really excited when fourth quarter took place. Thomasians were yelling 'Beat UE!' and in the end of the game we won =D (Buti na lang!). On the first game by the way Ateneo won, so I guess we'll see you in the finals Ateneo! Go USTe!!!

ICS Variety Show

This year's ICS week was awesome. By the way I joined the fourth year's group for the ICS Variety Show. We mingled with CS and IT people. I really had a lot of fun and enjoyed performing on stage(my first) though I admit we had lapses in our execution but I think the show turned out okay if not great (laughter). We could've done better if not because of our theses. Of course we seniors have to prioritize our thesis over other things. Here are some of the pics from that event. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to include pictures of the actual performance.

The experience was really great. I had so much fun plus I met new friends. And although we did not get the First Place at least we have some magazines and enjoy ourselves. I will surely miss the practice and the company of the CS people… they are so funny (in a good way)! :)
