Radio Prod and other stuff

     Someone's telling me to blog. Haha! At least I know there are people who read what I write and wait for me to make another one. What happened yesterday? I did nothing. I just emailed the news to my group mates and then slept and did nothing. I just wanted to rest yesterday. Last Monday I was able to go to school to have our meeting. Call time was around 2pm to 3pm but we arrived there around 4pm because of the heavy rain. After that, we still waited for one of our classmate who went to school but did not wear uniform of even brought an ID. We decided to have our meeting at Burger King. I explained to them the things that I know and then we discussed the things that are needed to be discussed. Then we ate there. After a few hours, my 4th year friends, Dibs, Irene and Meng went there to help us. We did get very helpful tips. I was very thankful they were there. After that we decided to eat dinner at Chic-boy Araneta and met Pauline there. :) It was my first time to eat there.

     I was so happy to finally meet them again. Thank you for helping girls! It really meant a lot! So yeah, we had fun there and took pictures then we went home around 8:30pm. :) I am so happy!

     That will be all for today. I stayed up late thinking about what to write because I wasn't able to write yesterday. Good night! :)

Excited and Happy

     Well, what can I say? I wasn't able to write here last Wednesday because I was too tired and too sick. I did check out my facebook but I did not have the energy and time to write a blog. Last wednesday there was this Japanese Festival held in school. My classmates danced a Japanese song but I was not familiar with it so I didn't know the title. I was the one who took their pictures. I was happy because I supported my friends. It was a whole day activity but I only attended the first part. The second part was in the afternoon but I had my class in PE so I wasn't able to attend.

     Here's their picture. :D I was not there because I was the one who took the picture. I also have a picture with all of them but that was taken in the digital camera of Lanie Sensei, their teacher. She was also my teacher in Nihonggo 2. Anyway, for a short period of time I was able to enjoy the show.

     Later in the afternoon, I attended my PE class. Good thing I wasn't dropped yet. I do not have the new PE uniform. I don't want to wear shorts. haha! But I have no choice. Haha! And oh, I don't know all my classmates. They are all tourism students.

     What happened today was still a blast. I woke up with a very painful sore throat and I was not feeling well so I decided to skip class. I still attended our radio production in the evening.  Everything went well. Next week, we will have our very first radio production. I wonder how will it go? I don't have any idea on what will happen. Best of luck to our group who will present last.  haha! All I'm thinking about right now is how to prepare, what to prepare and what to do first. I want to be prepared. I want everything to be organized when we will have the production. haha! I don't know what I'm talking about. Will this be my first time? Or not. haha! But really, I don't know!  Good luck to me and my groupmates!

     Today, I'm happy. I can say that I am happy because I have my friends. :) For other things that makes me happy, it's between me and myself. Haha! And oh, excited. Yes, I'll be going to NBN tomorrow. I'm excited. That's all. :P

     Random. I already got my OVER CDS. yay! ^__^ I bought it for 2,600 Php straight from Japan. :) Another addition to my collections. ^__^
     I already have 6 Hey! Say! JUMP Cds. :) More to come since they will release another single by august or september. :) I haven't really updated much lately.

     Anyway, that will be all for today. :) Kiotsukete Kudasai!

blog rush

     Okay, at this moment I don't know what to write, I forgot how to write and unfortunately I ran out of words. I have so many things in mind but I don't know what to write first. haha! So anyway, yesterday I was able to watch Captain America. The movie wasn't that good because in my opinion, the movie didn't have any emotion. I didn't like the ending at all. Well, I expect movies to have happy endings but this movie was different. Just watch the movie if you want to know the ending or I'll just spoil it for you. Haha! I don't know what I'm saying. It's been so long before I last blogged out my thoughts.

     It's very rainy outside and I haven't eaten my breakfast and lunch yet. I'll just have my brunch later after writing this blog. It's a very cold day today so I might as well drink some hot choco or coffee maybe. Hmmm, what to talk about. School? Yeah this semester was a lot different from the past semesters in TUA. I had new friends. I talked about that in my previous blog here. Then everything went pretty well. I enjoyed classes especially Broadcast Journalism, Scriptwriting and Radio Production. Aside from those subjects that sounds "astig" for me (haha!) I loved how our professor deliver his lecture. He has a sense of humor and I pretty much understood every word he said. :) He's like a father to us. He calls us "mga anak". haha.. :)

     Last July 20 we went to UP Diliman for the UP Gawad Plaridel. It was fun because ever since I really wanted to participate and attend  events like that. The 2011 Gawad Plaridel Awardee was Eloisa Cruz-Canlas also known at Lola Sela. She is popular in Radio Drama and in DZRH. I heard of her before but I wasn't really familiar because I wasn't fond of listening to the radio. I also enjoyed the performance of  UP Chorale. Beautiful voices! After the program we did tour around the University and took pictures. :D

 In the Picture is Lola Sela, Eloisa Cruz-Canlas. :)

And oh, we also met Ramon Bautista there!

Me, at the entrance of the Cine Adarna (i think) . :)

     I had a lot of fun because I was with my friends. We weren't able to take pictures in the Oblation for some reasons. Haha. :D That's it for now. I'm still thinking about other things to write. On Sunday I will be going to NBN. haha! Pretty much excited!!.. ^_^

     A few hours ago I scanned my old blogs that started around 2007. Now I feel inspired and I want to continue blogging. I'll start new blogs as soon as possible. :) I'm pretty much excited! See you very soon!

Unexpected Friendship / School Experiences

     Yesterday was a blast! First thing in the morning was a doze of coffee and a newspaper. I woke up around 5:45 a.m. with just 4 hours of sleep because I was busy writing the previous blog. Around 8:30 a.m. I was able to leave the house and then went to school. Upon arriving in our assigned classroom I sat on my chair, read the newspaper and minded my own business while waiting for our professor.
      In class we discussed so many things about the Rules of Readability in Broadcast Journalism. The subject was very interesting that it was one of the subjects I look forward to every week. I also knew why articles are written like those that I read. I didn't know that large numbers should be spelled-out. Acronyms that are used should be known by the majority. There were a lot of interesting things to be learned. I also enjoyed hearing the stories of my professor about his experiences in the media industry and how he was able to survive it all. My evaluation  about the subject is that it is very interesting and I want to learn more about it.

      My life in the classroom focuses only on my world since I had to friends yet. Well, I have some but we don't really talk that much. So during school days my route goes from house to school then back to our house. All I did in class was to listen to my professor.

      At the end of my day, my mom calls me and we discuss things like politics, current events and so many others. Recently, we were able to talk about me having friends. She told me that I should wait and not hurry looking for friends. I agreed and told her that I just need time. Maybe God is preparing something for me. I felt that. Yesterday, He did!

      While walking and heading for the gate of our school all I thought about was going home and getting some sleep. When I entered the jeep, I searched for my wallet to get some coins for payment not noticing the passengers who were with me. As I was searching  my bag, someone blurted out "Si Ate oh." Later on I realized that they were my classmates. They talked to me and I gladly answered their "getting to know" questions. Since it was lunch time and they were planning to eat in Cubao, they invited me. What amazed me was I did not feel any uncertainties and when we strolled the Araneta Center, we talked as if we were very close already. There were five of them but for me that was too large for me so I easily shy away.

      I was happy and thanked God for a wonderful day He gave me. He gave me something that was not in my plans. It was unexpected. Later on, I went home with a big smile on my face. Thank you Lord for new friends! :)


Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Okay. Let me start of with the big bad news that I have read this morning. This is for Hey!Say!JUMP fans only, we'll you can read it if you're that interested.

I was reading kamichan's blog about Ryutaro Morimoto of Hey! Say! JUMP being suspended because he was caught smoking at a very young age. I didn't like what happened though it was really his fault. Knowing that he is working in Jhonny's Entertainment, and he is a Japanese citizen, he must abide by the rules. I understand the decision of Mr. Jhonny Kitagawa, the owner of JE (Jhonny's Entertainment), about the suspension of Morimoto. He was not just caught with the eye but caught with a camera. I don't consider it as being caught because just looking at the picture I can say that he really did that on purpose. You can see the picture here. I could not understand the reason why he would do such thing that would ruin the image of JUMP and other groups. Another thing is that maybe he trusted the wrong person, the person who took the picture. Today will be the launching of their latest single OVER. Now, JUMP will launch their single with only 9 members. After reading the news, I got almost 50 SMS from my friends talking and crying over the issue. I understand that Hey! Say! JUMP is not Hey! Say! JUMP with only 9 members. But there's no reason to go crying and not eating because of that.

The Tokyo TV Station is now puzzled whether they would air Yanyan JUMP and HEY! HEY! HEY!, Morimoto is there and they have already taped the show 2 weeks ago and that will be aired today. They are also thinking about editing the singles and removing Morimoto there but I don't think they still can. There are already CDs that was shipped and sold out of Japan. Poor Morimoto have to be suspended in all appearances indefinitely. At first I would also like to give him a big slap on the face for doing such thing that now ruined the image of the group. Since he's a teenager, I'll refrain from doing that aside from the fact that I don't know him personally. When teenagers are curious, they always end up like that. As far as I'm concerned, Japanese people are very disciplined whether old or young. That is why I was very curious about the reason of Morimoto's early smoking exposure.

Talking about maturity, I was pissed reading some comments and texts about him. Those messages that doesn't really make sense. Why can't fangirls and fanboys just act maturely over this issue? Why do they have to cry so hard over this, why do they have to skip their meals because Morimoto is suspended? I know we fans have our own opinions about this issue. Can we just react about this in an objective and positive way? Isn't crying and skipping meals just because of that just makes a person immature? I know die-hard fans are really hurt about this issue but it's not a reason for them to make themselves suffer. They are just making their life more complicated.

Morimoto has his issues and JE has no clear statements of whether he will be forced to quit or not. In the latest news, it was said that he is indefinitely suspended. So it's indefinitely not permanently. There is still hope. The company is giving him a chance to change. From what a friend of mine said, in the history of JE, no one was suspended that was able to go back to his group. I know fans all over the world are still hoping for his comeback and I hope, I HOPE, that it will not completely ruin the image of the group.

I've been planning to write this the whole day yesterday but I was busy. So that's it. Prayers for Ryutaro Morimoto.
